Good morning one and all. I am not one to be happy and satisfied with anything and stay silent, same as if I am upset or sad. I always show my appreciation and love for you all and today I want to show it again and I suspect that this will become a habit. Last night was wonderful, I am very happy for the support and I am also very proud of all of you. It was the first night of our cultural discussion and it went very well. I want to keep the momentum going and going and going, and I am sure you all feel the same way.
The subject last night was “How Europe underdeveloped Africa”, and it was a pretty heavy book to read and aslo the subject was very deep. The plight of the African people and people of color can never be ignored. We are important people and we are from a great race. Contrary to what is presented to the world, we are not a set of backward, or barbaric bush people who others found lacking and had to open our eyes and feed us!
Way before the caves opened up to let out all those who sought to oppress the Africans, we had Kingdoms, and learning centers, Great mystery system in place and more. We were and still are a loving race, and we welcomed strangers with open arms and taught them, fed them, introduced them into our mysteries and they turned around and bit the hands which fed them.
This Book which was the subject matter last night, was on point with how it explained the very title “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa” I am still reading it, because I did not have the time to finish. It is important that we free our minds, it is important that we learn. It matters not of your race, color or creed. It matters not that I Obara Meji am an African or Jamaican, what is important, the most important is learning. Do not hide your self away by believing that because you are not of the black race these knowledge has nothing to do with you, you are of the human race and all things concerning human beings should concern you! Learning is learning, knowledge is knowledge, History is History. We need not know of just one thing we need to know as much. Please read the book called The African Unconscious, by Edward Bynum, Please invest in this book!!!…Please read Stolen Legacy, by George. G. M. James!, he lost his life because of this book! Please READ!
Kemet was the name for which nowadays Egypt is called, from Kemet we have Chemistry, no little black boy or girl should be challenged in school with this subject, our ancestors mastered it, and turned around and taught it to THEM!!
Consider Modern day Sudan, which was called Nubia upon a time ago, we will study Sudan in times to come, you will be amazed of what is there and their contribution to the world, Ethiopia formerly called Cush taught the Kemetians now called Egypt how to read and write, there are Pyramids in Ethiopia older than what is in Egypt. We will observe the Dogons from Mali in times to come, and also the Bush men In Namibia, we will explore Africa, our great home, saddle up and prepare for a very long journey, back to Africa, Back to our home!
Regardless of who you are you must be willing to have an open mind, listen, view, read, and learn, arm yourself with knowledge which will be sweetly satisfying to the spirit and allow you to understand life and how the world and its people came into being.
Below you will find some very short videos of Dr. John Henri Clarke and Dr. Ben Jochanan, and another video of a debate, as I said I wanted to keep the momentum going and so I want to watch these videos as I will also post some more tomorrow. From them we will learn much, how can that be a bad thing? Also watch Ashra Kwesi with his amazing video on Free Masonry and its origins.
Attention for our Friday Night discussion, Let us discuss a relationship which seemed like torture, or Someone you should have never walked away from, the best relationship you have ever had!
This is a video by Ashra Kwesi, watch and learn!!
