    The Process of Healing




    Part Six

    In part six of this writing I will attempt to point out some serious
    information as it regards our sickness that we have chosen to deaf ear and
    blind eye to as it regards our reality. Below is a speech given by President
    Lincoln to a group of obviously well to do and educated black leaders in
    Washington in 1862...but before I get into that speech and the impact of it,
    there's a few more issues I want to present and questions I want to ask.

    Question #1. According to our own reality in terms of how we view things,
    who is regarded as being black? I know that we see President Obama as
    being black because his mother is white but his father is Ethiopian...so I
    guess that as long as we have direct black relatives that we are considered
    to be black. Did I get that right? This is basically what we say, right? I
    asked this question because I remember an Oprah show whereby she
    presented the idea that there are basically 20,000 people in America who
    are black but are able to pass off as being white. In other words, I guess
    that they were born light skinned and straight haired enough to get away
    with doing that.

    Since my above illustration is indeed factual from a genetic level and in
    terms of "how we see things", then that means that Obama was not this
    nations first black President...and he knew he was not. Please review the
    information and see for yourselves what I have written.

    The Five Black Presidents of The United
    States Of America

    Thomas
    Jackson

    Andrew
    Jackson

    Abraham
    Lincoln


    Warren
    Harding


    Calvin
    Coolidge

    Joel A. Rogers and Dr. Auset Bakhufu have both written books
    documenting that at least five former presidents of the United States had
    Black people among their ancestors. If one considers the fact that
    European men far outnumbered European women during the founding of
    this country, and that the rape and impregnation of an African female
    slave was not considered a crime, it is even more surprising that these two
    authors could not document Black ancestors among an ever larger number
    of former presidents. The president’s names include Thomas Jefferson,
    Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Warren Harding, and Calvin Coolidge.

    The best case for Black ancestry is against Warren G. Harding, our 29th
    president from 1921 until 1923. Harding himself never denied his ancestry.
    When Republican leaders called on Harding to deny the "Negro" history,
    he said, "How should I know whether or not one of my ancestors might
    have jumped the fence." William Chancellor, a White professor of
    economics and politics at Wooster College in Ohio, wrote a book on the
    Harding family genealogy and identified Black ancestors among both
    parents of President Harding. Justice Department agents allegedly bought
    and destroyed all copies of this book. Chancellor also said that Harding's
    only academic credentials included education at Iberia College, which was
    founded in order to educate fugitive slaves.

    Andrew Jackson was our 7th president from 1829 to 1837. The Virginia
    Magazine of History Volume 29 says that Jackson was the son of a White
    woman from Ireland who had intermarried with a Negro. The magazine
    also said that his eldest brother had been sold as a slave in Carolina. Joel
    Rogers says that Andrew Jackson Sr. died long before President Andrew
    Jackson Jr. was born. He says the president's mother then went to live on
    the Crawford farm where there were Negro slaves and that one of these
    men was Andrew Jr's father. Another account of the "brother sold into
    slavery” story can be found in David Coyle's book entitled "Ordeal of the
    Presidency" (1960).

    Thomas Jefferson was our 3rd president from 1801 to 1809. The chief
    attack on Jefferson was in a book written by Thomas Hazard in 1867 called
    "The Johnny Cake Papers." Hazard interviewed Paris Gardiner, who said
    he was present during the 1796 presidential campaign, when one speaker
    states that Thomas Jefferson was “a mean-spirited son of a half-breed
    Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father.” In his book entitled "The
    Slave Children of Thomas Jefferson," Samuel Sloan wrote that Jefferson
    destroyed all of the papers, portraits, and personal effects of his mother,
    Jane Randolph Jefferson, when she died on March 31, 1776. He even wrote
    letters to every person who had ever received a letter from his mother,
    asking them to return that letter. Sloan says, "There is something strange
    and even psychopathic about the lengths to which Thomas Jefferson went
    to destroy all remembrances of his mother, while saving over 18,000 copies
    of his own letters and other documents for posterity." One must ask,
    "What is it he was trying to hide?"

    Abraham Lincoln was our 16th president from 1861 to 1865. J. A. Rogers
    quotes Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks, as saying that Abraham Lincoln
    was the illegitimate son of an African man. William Herndon, Lincoln's
    law partner, said that Lincoln had very dark skin and coarse hair and that
    his mother was from an Ethiopian tribe. In Herndon's book entitled "The
    Hidden Lincoln" he says that Thomas Lincoln could not have been
    Abraham Lincoln's father because he was sterile from childhood mumps
    and was later castrated. Lincoln's presidential opponents made cartoon
    drawings depicting him as a Negro and nicknamed him “Abraham
    Africanus the First."

    Calvin Coolidge was our 30th president, and he succeeded Warren
    Harding. He proudly admitted that his mother was dark because of mixed
    Indian ancestry. However, Dr. Bakhufu says that by 1800 the New England
    Indian was hardly any longer pure Indian, because they had mixed so often
    with Blacks. Calvin Coolidge's mother's maiden name was "Moor." In
    Europe the name "Moor" was given to all Black people just as the name
    Negro was used in America.

    All of the presidents mentioned were able to pass for White and never
    acknowledged their Black ancestry. Millions of other children who were
    descendants of former slaves have also been able to pass for White.
    American society has had so much interracial mixing that books such as
    “The Bell Curve”, discussing IQ evaluations based solely on race, are
    totally unrealistic.
    The above information concerning history that was never written into
    history books that all children learn from in school served as a means of
    making "European people in America" view and regard themselves as
    "special or privileged"...while at the same time making our people see or
    view themselves as "less than or insignificant other than as being slaves". I
    do want to state however that the very idea that there were Black
    Presidents long before Obama is significant in the sense that there "have
    always been black or African people who had no issues with aiding white
    people in their agenda even when it proved itself to be against those who
    looked as they did. In other words, "the black sell out has always existed"
    in one sense or another. These issues will be dealt with further on this site.

    In fact, in 1862 President Lincoln gave a speech to the black leaders of that
    time and made it clear that "the only black people that they wanted were
    those that were what we would call "house negroes". His exact words are

    as follows:

    There is an unwillingness on the part of our people, harsh as it may be, for
    you free colored people to remain with us. Now, if you could give a start to
    white people, you would open a wide door for many to be made free. If we
    deal with those who are not free at the beginning, and whose intellects are
    clouded by Slavery, we have very poor materials to start with. If intelligent
    colored men, such as are before me, would move in this matter, much
    might be accomplished. It is exceedingly important that we have men at
    the beginning capable of thinking as white men, and not those who have
    been systematically oppressed.


    In other words, here was the President letting black leaders know that, as
    long as they can use our people to advance their people, everything was
    okay. As long as they can get our people to "think as their people think",
    everything was okay. As long as "they can get, use and keep those of our
    people who can FORGET THE SYSTEMIC OPPRESSION THAT THEIR
    PEOPLE INFLICTED UPON OUR PEOPLE", everything was okay.

    I agree that a comprehensive review of business as usual on the Afrikan Continent before the onslaught of tyrannical invaders ever set to engage such a depraved campaign would doubtlessly serve to effectively illuminate Peoples and areas much more effectively in the process of healing than would a tunnel-visioned focus on chattle slavery, as such would (by default,) be more of effect than cause thereby consequentially having deferred attention from the future through a mis-guided focus on the past.

    Therefore in the interest of SANKOFA, I'M curious to consider what dates (and by who's calendar,) times, commerce, governmental structure, Family pursuits, birthing practices, death rites (and why?) maritime obligations, institutions of higher education ect; architectonic engineering (limitations or lack of..) from OURSTORIES that YOU would find beneficial to the process of OUR Healing from here?

    And where could WE expect such to fall within a new cause and effect?

        Well...but then of course, I'M left with MY Own perspective!

        Hetep Ndugu. You will always be left with your own perspective regardless of what. This is the beauty of our history and culture. In the process of healing, we can look at our homeland from various points of reference and culture. While it is true that we did not all follow the same path, that again is what culture is all about. If you're happy and at peace practicing Yoruba or the teachings of the Dogons or the Kemetic way of life, it actually doesn't matter as long as your practices don't interfere with the collective of the people. Now, even as we look at the afore mentioned practices that I did mention, although they are different, they all carry something called "cultural continuity" with them. What does that mean? It means that if I'm in Kemet and you're in Ghana and somebody else is in the Congo, it doesn't make a difference. The reason that it doesn't make a difference is because in all those cultures there exist core principles that are the same all over the Motherland. All over the Motherland you respect your elders, learn from them and never consider throwing grandma or grandpa away.

        All over the continent you don't disrespect your women or children and all children belong to you. All over the continent there are nature teachings and rites of passage for our development from childhood to adulthood....these things are what cultural continuity is...and once we begin to look at our people and our practices BEFORE being interfered with by outsiders, then we can begin to see exactly what and how we were, how we lived, how we raised children and treated our spouses. We can see what we ate, how we dressed, what our science was and what our culture was about. In other words, before I was a Christian, a Muslim, a Five Percenter, a Hebrew Israelite, a Jew, a Moor or anything else...what were we? That's right, we were Afrakan first !! So in our process of healing we are going to have to become Afrakan first once again. This means that our core values are going to have to change.

        Afrakan people were always about knowledge, science, health, nature, mathematics, economics, natural technology, spiritual development and all life sciences. In the Afrakan way of living, death did not exist and I have yet to read anywhere where one group or nation on the continent tried to impose or kill another group over SPIRITUAL PRACTICES....unlike what we see happening historically in religions. Whatever it is that each person may or may not choose as their historical point of reference that they feel comfortable with, it obviously is something that can not and will not take place without a knowledge of our history because that is what preserves who and how we have been as well as the roads we have traveled to this point in time. I appreciate your response and wanted you to know that I didn't forget about ya....I might be slow sometimes...lol....but I didn't forget.

        Thanks a lot on this thread.

        Htp !
