TEXAS TEXTBOOK SCANDAL
THE BLACK AND WHITE DISTORTION OF THE HISTORICAL RECORD
Peace be unto you. The callous, ungodly criminal action of the Texas State Board of Education is just one of the latest attempts to continue the distortion of the historical record. Especially the record of Blacks in America and throughout the Diaspora.
Historically there has always been an attempt to discolor and mis-represent the impact of Blacks in America and throughout the Diaspora the world over. These pointless attempts at lies and falsehoods started at the dawn of world civilizations.
Thus Egypt during antiquity was noted as White Africa or outside of Africa therefore denying the attachment of Egypt to the land mass of the land called Africa, “The Land of the Blacks.” Soon to justify slavery the most heinous and criminal enterprise in the annals of humankind there arose a campaign to list the Black man and woman, boy and girl as inferior human beings. Therefore slavery to these lost people was justified because the people taken as slaves from the west coast of Africa were less than human. Meanwhile what was the human condition of the Black man and woman taken from the east coast of Africa as slaves?
Thus the conclusion reached by those that became slave masters and those that profited from the slave trade in the west and the east was one of alleged Black inferiority. Who gained the greatest profits from this inhumane system of degradation? American slavery and slavery throughout the Western Hemisphere and all through the Caribbean basin was a system that denied one's culture, religion and right to exist as a human being that Almighty God created. Just who could sleep and not offer repentance for the past crimes of those that have gone on? What will be their transition?
The following is an excerpt taken from the series: Notes on The Black Family: Ancestors: Sins of the Past & Present:
Help us O’Lord as we seek some answers to two basic questions. Can the sins of the fathers be transferred to their ancestors? Will God forgive those guilty of enslaving other people? Was materialism the motivating reason for White on Black economic racism? Was/is Black on Black racism generated by the economics of racism by the ruling regime?
Turn with us now to a powerful scripture found in the Old Testament Book of Exodus.
Exodus 20:5: “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of those that hate me;”
As we look at this scripture and its meaning and apply it to our circumstances we first see that the people today just like the Jews are told not to bow down to idol gods. Money can be an idol god. Thus one can argue that those that thrived off the economics of racism (slavery) served an idol god of money. At this place iniquity means the results or consequences of the penalty of sin as well as the sin itself.
Follow us over to Numbers 14: 18 for another scriptural reference to gain even more clarity about our questions up for review.
“The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.”
Brethren what does the scriptures tell us? Although our Father God is longsuffering and full of mercy He will not clear or justify the guilty who will not reform. Thus there will be punishment. However God will forgive the guilty party if they repent.
Beloved there have been many crimes committed against humanity down through the ages. These crimes generally carry no badge of race or ethnic origins. What is specific to all is that they have forsaken God. We bear witness that you cannot serve God and commit crimes of economic racism etc. Will repentance be found on the lips of those outside the arc of God? Has there been an ongoing decision to serve an idol god? Do some even know that they do not serve God and Christ as they play Church as children played Church as a game? We also bear witness that in order to reach Peace and Paradise you must serve only God.
Meanwhile to get closer to responding to all of our primary questions and concerns go with us to another powerful scriptural reference.
Numbers 26: 11: “Not withstanding the children of Korah died not.”
The children of Korah were exempted from destruction because they did not engage in the conspiracy against God, Moses and Aaron. However as we relate this scripture to our primary scripture at Exodus 20: 5 we see that the children of wicked parents will also be punished like the parents, provided they also hate the Lord.
Now return with us to the line of thought noted at the outset of this discussion before we included an excerpt on the sins of the ancestors of those that practiced economic racism.
Will Reparations and an apology for the systematic cultural genocide of Black people atone for an economic system that many people would still thrive on if not for a Civil War? Just how could any decent human beings have the nerve to equate the slave traffic as a mere economic enterprise similar to that of sugar, molasses and rum? Who are these people in Texas?
Furthermore the record shows that during the time Blacks were held as slaves many (pure died in blood, sweat and tear stained cotton) racists that claimed academic credentials went to great lengths to render intellectual arguments that noted the inherent inferiority of the Black race. Meanwhile they winked at the glorious Egyptian civilization and the African presence throughout the continent that had existed prior to the ability of the Europeans to cook meat.
So as slavery took a firm hold in America and throughout the Western Hemisphere and to the east of Africa the western slave holder held firm to the principles of no education for the slaves. Why? An educated slave posed a threat. Do educated Blacks in the reality of the Black experience still pose a threat? A threat to whom? Meanwhile those that were free in the South had no place to go to learn to read or write.
However with freedom came eventually schools for Blacks but there was and still is an interest in mis-education of the Negro. This mood and tactic of mis-education is found among public, private and most if not all of our colleges and universities. Since the taste of freedom came to Black people certain philanthropists have sought to control the education of the Black community through grants and money and various Black educational funds. For example Booker T. Washington was chosen as the initial HNIC, Negro Straw Boss for Black America. He was also given the helm of a Black college.
Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950 begin writing in 1915) the opposite of Booker T. Washington was so troubled by the obvious mis-education of Black people that he contributed several scholarly studies on this problem. Mainly “The Mis-education of the Negro,” “Education of the Negro,” and “The Education of the Negro Prior to 1861,” where he notes the historic aspects of economic racism as the driving force involved in the calculated attempts to control the educational process of the Black community. The dilemma that Dr. Woodson brought up for review resulted in the establishment of Black history study groups (he founded the Association For the Study of African American Life and History in 1915) and the now infamous Black History Week now Black History Month celebrated in February. But in the process the proponents of Black History these days only foster mis-education for the most part. (Also see “Fallen Letters: Mis-education & Intellectual Confusion, Essays on the Black Experience,” FreedomJournal Press 2007).
Therefore there is a ban and attack on true Afro-centric scholars. Most Black Studies departments are mere puppet shows as they have been co-opted and controlled by forces outside and inside the Black community since their inception.
So maybe the recent publicized ban on Truth in Texas will alert some sensible people both Black and White that the historical record has been under attack since the dawn of world civilizations. Also there have been just as many Black actors in these crimes as the so-called racists from the European community.
Peace and Paradise,
