The transatlantic slave trade, the African Holocaust, otherwise known as slavery was and is still one of, if not the greatest atrocity that has ever been done upon a race of people and throughout mankind. To date, there has been no apology, or reparation for the wicked acts of Europeans against Africans. The Jews and what they suffered at the hands of Hitler, have been compensated, and have received their repatriations.
Do you see the difference?
Bob Marley song Africans unite and died two years after, but his message was clear. In this day and age black lives do not matter, and what is so hurtful is that they use those of our skin color against us, notice I said skin color as opposed to saying Black people, because some may have the same skin color, but the minds, thoughts, and conditioning of their white masters.
I have no hatred for white people, I love my race, the black race very much, and when I look throughout history how a race of people have heartlessly destroyed another race of people, who are same as they are, with the exception of melanin between the two, the extreme hatred is beyond my comprehension.
We continue to see it displayed everyday with the killing of black youths by white police men, and nothing done about it by the law, they are sending out a message that BLACK LIFE DOES NOT MATTER!
Africa is being raped and plundered still, and their minds entrapped with the vile and wickedness of man made religions, which has divided Africa and Africans, Christianity being the most cruel and also Islam, O Ma Se O. This is another way to keep the African locked up and trapped in Jesus name, my eyes mist at this. For even I cringe still when I hear anyone say anything bad about Jesus, and I know that there was no Jesus as is described in the Bible, nor anyone by that name, but because of pre-conditioning and loving this white skinned, blue eyed, blond haired man, who I saw as my deity, savior and redeemer for years and worshiping him, pleading his blood, while his relatives spilled the blood of my ancestors, although I Obara Meji know the fallacy of all of this Christianity BS and Jesus BS, and the holy bible BS, I still cringe silently when another learned person denounce him, as I denounce him, and I definitely know better! But I am working on that feeling.
To be fair to myself, I still hold on to the teachings he represented, the benevolence which his character described
Many blacks may ask, where is God in all of this, why do black people have to suffer so much and for so long? Obara if what white people did and are still doing has cause so much death, sorrow and pain, Where is God to stand up for us?, I thought you said for every bad thing done there is repercussions, but when we look at them they own everything, they rule the wold, they have power, they are happy, where is God Obara Meji, does he hate black people and love the whites more, is he also prejudice like them, thus funding them and giving them ammunition to destroy us Obara?
God the creator is not a human being, no one knows the thoughts and mind of the creator. There are certain laws within the Universe, and no matter what, these laws can never change. Of them all I will point out seven;
The Law Of Mentalism; all is mind and mind is all….this gives us the power to create anything, even our own reality!
The Law Of Correspondence; as above so below, as below so above…..Hologram, Mirror, Reflection, I will explain more later.
The Law Of Vibration; nothing rests, everything moves;everything vibrates/
The Law Of Polarity; Everything is dual; everything has poles, everything has its pair of opposites like and unlike are the same’opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree, extremes meet; all truths are but half truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled
The Law Of Rhythm; (cycle)Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and falls
The Law Of Cause And Effect; What goes around comes around, nothing escapes the Laws of the Universe
The Law Of Gender; Gender is everything, everything has its masculine and a feminine principles
Black people, God loves us, never doubt that! But remember that our consciousness is like a grain of sand compared to that of the creator, and what this mean is we will never be able figure out the mind of God. So let us them look to the laws of the Universe.
We all know that there has to be balance in order for us, human beings, to be aligned with our higher self and to the Universe. All humans created, though their souls live forever, their physical bodies here on earth is but for a while. So there is a recycling of souls coming to live earthly lives every time a child is born. We all get to experience lives of different races and ethnic groups each time we enter a physical body on this earth realm. The higher powers within the Universe, do not see our plight as the black race and the white race battle as a color/race war, or as hatred for each other, because they know how incarnations and soul groups works within the realm of time and space. That is not important to our Elders in the realms, our watchers, all those emotions are forgotten once we cross over, what is left with us is the memory of what we learned and our mistakes.
They see it as life lessons and growth for our spiritual evolution and for the ascension of our group families within the realms of spirit, striving for the ethereal self, which is very hard to attain. They see sufferings of us and others as something which will teach us how to focus, be humble, learn to fight, to think, to strategize, be aware, to love, to hate and all things we learn while struggling with those who are our oppressors.
Also know that Money and all things material, is not true wealth, true wealth is wisdom abound, coupled with knowledge and understanding, if you can gain this you life time, them, after your transition, you may be free from the wheel of existence! Whatever wealth a person amass while on earth and even if it is handed down through generations, it can only be for a time, never forever. So pay no mind to what they have, Educate your selves more than them, read and travel, explore and learn and see who has the real wealth!
We are being observed under the watchful eyes or our spiritual elders, emissaries of God withing the Universe, they cannot interfere with our journey here. We can call upon them in circumstances as we know how to in our traditional practice, and give sacrifices to clear our way, but religious obstacles,and pragmatic mindset has removed those thoughts and actions from many of us, and so they must come back to the world in order to find that part of themselves sans religion or any other deceit.
We need to not spend time worrying about what white people have done to us and are still doing, but we must never forget their agenda against us, which is very obvious, we need to focus on our selves as a race, go into our selves and connect with spirit through prayers and togetherness as one people. The Jews bond together, the Chinese, The Indians and all other ethnic groups, Whites bond together, but we stand apart from each other, this is how they have managed to conquer, we are not a race of people that bonds together, we curse each other, back bite each other, betray each other we do not support each other in business, in our every day lives or in anything, while they bond and stand firm together.
I have been blogging from 2011, and those peeping are much more that who comments, why is that? The support for me is not there, though they will quietly read and enjoy what is written, to voice out, they will never do!
Africans, Wake up and live!
I Love you All
Three Fingered Jack: His name drove fear into the hearts of white plantation owners
Jack Mansong; Three Fingured Jack!
Perhaps the most feared runaway slave in Jamaica during the 1700s was Jack Mansong, popularly known as ‘Three Fingered Jack’ – Jamaica’s first infamous bad man.
Historians say that the very mention of Mansong’s name drove fear into the hearts of white plantation owners in Jamaica and those in Britain where many plays and books were written about his exploits. He was also the first fugitive in Jamaica’s history to have a bounty, £300, placed on his head.
The books on Mansong were widely popular and two became best-sellers, while one of the musical plays, entitled Obi-or Three Fingered Jack, had a run of at least nine years to packed houses in British theatres.
During the slavery years, there were many runaway slaves and rebels, but Jack’s infamy was legendary, considering that his time as a fugitive lasted less than a year – between 1780 and 1781.
According to the Jamaica Journal volume seven, number four, Jack Mansong was described by the authorities at the time as ‘the terror of Jamaica’, a ‘famous Negro robber’, ‘a daring rebel’ and ‘a bold and daring defender of the rights of man’.
Accounts of his early life vary, but one story that remains consistent is that Jack Mansong fled the slave plantation and at first holed up at a spot at the head of the Cane River, where he could observe and swoop down on commuters traversing the Windward Road, as it was known at the time.
From there, Mansong moved to higher ground and settled in a cave in the Blue Mountains from where he robbed passers-by, raided nearby plantations and launched his own private war against the authorities of the time.
The area in St Thomas between Bull Bay and Grant’s Pen, where a monument in his memory stands today, was Three Fingered Jack’s main hunting ground and it was there that he reputedly carried out many daring hold-ups, robberies and kidnappings.
Information gathered at the Institute of Jamaica reveals that Government officials and slave owners were his main targets.
Mansong has been blamed for numerous murders of the time and popular legend had it that he did not harm women, children or slaves. In fact, some writings suggest that Jack freed a number of slaves during his reign of terror.
The razing of a district known as Crawford Town in Western Portland in February 1780 has been widely attributed as the work of Mansong, who recruited disgruntled slaves as his deputies.
The attack on Crawford Town was carried out in the early hours and it was set on fire, according to the Jamaica Journal, “amidst screams of the defenceless and groans of the dying”.
The Maroons, who were at the time hired to capture and return runaway slaves to the plantations, were hired to quell the disturbance and dispersed the gang of rebels led by Three Fingered Jack. A free pardon was offered to the rebellious slaves and all accepted, except Mansong, who from then on fought his battles against the state alone.
Since the incident at Crawford Town, Three Fingered Jack’s reputation grew widely. He was allegedly an avid believer in obeah and was often blamed by both blacks and whites for marital breakdowns, illness and misfortune.
The January 9, 1930 issue of the West India Committee Circular stated, “By his magic he was not only the dread of the Negroes, but there were many white people who believed he was possessed of some supernatural power…”
There was also talk that Mansong had forced open iron bars and jumped 30 feet before killing two warders, when he was once captured, he was also alleged to be a giant-sized man who could absorb bullets in his body without coming to harm.
Historians say Mansong got the name Three Fingered Jack after he lost two fingers in an ambush in which he attempted to rob a maroon called Quashie. Quashie is said to have fought back and chopped off Jack’s two fingers, although he was also badly injured in the skirmish.
By the end of 1780, the colonial government had become frustrated that all efforts to rid the society of Three Fingered Jack had failed, despite the posting of rewards by the British Government and the colonial assembly. To bolster their drive to capture Mansong, the colonists offered full freedom to any slave who could bring the feared rebel to justice, dead or alive.
Jack Mansong’s short but effective guerrilla warfare ended on January 27, 1781, according to an account in the Royal Gazette of February 3, 1781.
The report states that Three Fingered Jack was surprised near the entrance of his cave by Quashie, who had converted to Christianity and was now known by the name John Reeder and a small slave boy known as ‘A Good Shot’.
Mansong only had time to grab his cutlass, but was shot three times, and in an effort to escape threw himself down a 40-foot precipice. Reeder is said to have followed Mansong down the slope and the two engaged in a deadly fight which saw both being badly injured.
Three Fingered Jack was eventually overpowered and slain after the slave boy bashed in his head with a rock and both he and Reeder proceeded to cut off his three-fingered hand and head. His head was then placed on a bamboo pole.
The trophies of war were then taken to the town of Morant Bay before being placed in a bucket of rum. They were then taken to Spanish Town where the £300 reward was claimed.
The head and hand of Jack Mansong were preserved for 20 years at Spanish Town.
Despite driving fear into the hearts of the colonialists and being branded a cold-blooded murderer, the exploits of Three Fingered Jack were used by anti-slavery activists in England to advocate human dignity for both West Indian and African blacks.

HAIL TO BOOKMAN DUTTY-A JAMAICAN AND A GREAT MAN!
On the night of August 14th, 1791, the Slaves of Saint Domingue, today Haiti, came together under the leadership of a Hougan or Vodou priest from Jamaica, named Dutty Bookman for the organization of a secret meeting with the purpose of starting a revolution to put an end to slavery in the French colony. Bookman was sold by his British master to a French merchant because he was able to teach himself how to read and write, and also because he was caught on numerous occasions teaching other slaves how to do the same. Instead of putting him to death, as was the rule for such violations, he sold him.
As many tend to believe, Bois Caiman is not the name of the actual place where the Vodou ceremony took place, here’s why. Dutty Bookman although a powerful Vodou priest, was also an Islamist. As a sign of respect, the other slaves did not call him by his name, they called him Imam. meaning Islamic priest. So when organizing the ceremony, the slaves agreed to meet “Nan Bwa Kay Imam” in Haitian Creole, meaning in the woods at Imam’s house; then go to the grotto where the greatest Vodou Ceremony would take place. Along with Mambo Cecile Fatiman, a notable Mambo or Vodou Priestess; Cecile Fatiman was the result of a rape; her father Louis Pierrot raped her mother who was an African born slave. Bookman and Mambo Cecile Fatiman was able to assemble over one thousand slaves in the huge grotto. The slaves gathered around a huge wood fire, and Bookman begun his famous speech.
The slaves were cheering, singing, clapping and dancing. Petro songs were loudly sung, Vèvès were drawn, drums were beaten with rage. Machetes, daggers in hands, they are calling on the darkest spirits of Mother Africa to come to their rescue. Mambo Cécile Fatiman suddenly got possessed by Erzulie 7 Kout Kouto, the most dangerous manifestation of Erzulie Dantor. She drinks blood. She is dancing by the rhythm of the drums, and the slaves were singing along with her. ” 7 kout kouto, 7 kout ponya prete mwen ganmèl lan pou mwen al vomi san e.Prete mwen ganmèl lan pou mwen al vomi sansan mwen ape koule. 7 stabbings of knives, 7 stabbings of daggers.Lend me the ganmèl ( a deep carved wood recipient), so I can vomit blood
Lend me the ganmèl, so I can vomit blood,
My blood is
A black female wild pig is presented to her, in symbol of liberty. Liberty is suppose to be free and untamed, as is the wild pig. The ‘pig is stabbed 7 times and all participants soak their fingers in the blood, taking the oath to “ Viv lib ou mouri“ , ” Live free or die.”
The slaves that night, took the oath to fight the greatest fight in human history. The fight for liberty and equality.
Under the order of Bookman and Mambo Cécile Fatiman, the villages where the white French masters were staying, are to be burned to the ground and all white French men executed. The scene was horrendous. With Machetes, daggers, swords, knives, pieces of woods, they left behind no one except children and women. Neighboring villages that could not participate physically had taken the vow to poison their masters’ water supplies. In a period of 3 days, the greatest fight for human freedom in History was being fought to the bones in the sugar cane plantations in Haiti. Thousands of Frenchmen were killed, their heads had been cut off, and the plantations sat on fire. The famous northern plain, the most profitable in the colony, was in ruin. From Le Cap, the whole horizon was a wall of fire. The fire was so great, that the people of Le Cap could not distinguish nights and days. One writer of the time said, that one could clearly read at night, like the sun was in the sky, although the fire was miles away. The slaves destroyed tirelessly. They were seeking their salvation in the most obvious way, the destruction of what they knew was the cause of their sufferings. After 3 days of complete destruction and killings, the French Army stepped in to restore order. They capture Bookman and beheaded him. They displayed his head at the public place, with a sign underneath reading “Bookman, Chef des Revolutions des Esclaves.” Bookman, Chief of the Slaves Revolution.”
Mambo Cécile Fatiman, was never captured, she lived to be 112 years. She died from old age. Today both Mambo Cécile Fatiman and Bookman are national heroes of Haiti.
Bois Caiman was a decisive point in mankind history. The point in time where the slaves, the Africans took their destiny in charge. No longer they wanted to suffer from the hands of the white men. A dream which Jean Jacques Dessalines, Haiti’s father of independence would immortalize, when he led the country to Independence on January 1st 1804; making Haiti the first Black Republic in the world, the first and only country in the history of mankind whose independence was a result of a successful slave rebellion and, the second Independent nation in the Americas, just 33 years after the US. Haiti also became the first country in the Americas to Constitutionally grants Its citizen Freedom and Equality for all regardless of race and gender.
Upon Independence, Haiti did not just became the first Black Republic, but Mother of Liberty and Equality for all.
Nat Turner’s Rebellion
One of the most famous slave revolts in American history came in 1831 when Nat Turner led a bloody uprising in Southampton County, Virginia. Turner was deeply religious, and planned his rebellion after he experienced prophetic visions ordering him to gain his freedom by force. On August 21, 1831, Turner and his accomplices killed his master’s family as they lay sleeping. From there, the small band of about 70 slaves moved from house to house, eventually killing over 50 whites with clubs, knives and muskets. It took a militia force to put down the rebellion, and Turner and 55 other slaves were captured and later executed by the state.
Hysteria swept through the region in the aftermath of Nat Turner’s revolt, and as many as 200 slaves were eventually killed by white mobs and militias. The rebellion also triggered a series of oppressive restrictions on slave populations. Citing Turner’s intelligence as a major factor in his revolt, several states would pass laws making it illegal to teach blacks to read or write.
