Brother Ali vs. White Supremacy Part #3
W.E.B. Dubois said: “We may give up entirely, if we wish, the attempt to delimit races. But we canot if we are sane, divide the world into white, yellows, and blacks, and then call blacks whites.”
It is amazing how folks get so-called “honorary white status” overseas, yet would be considered n!gga here in America. White folks are the ones who came up with this whole racial exclusivity system as we know it. And they had to in order to preserve their “whiteness”–otherwise, a large segment of the American South would have looked like a Brazil from racial miscegenation. If we are going to apply the one drop rule–then let us apply it with some degree of consistency.
I remember years ago reading an old (19th century) orientalist/Egyptologist work on the original inhabitants of Egypt. He said of them something to the effect of the Egyptians being very “dark-skinned” whites. If you check out some of the texts of the era, the Ethiopians–and even Somalis–are sometimes given “white status.” Someone mentioned Saddat being what we would call, “black” in America; however, because he was from Egypt, he gets “honorary white status.” But it is not only Saddat, his predecessor, Abdul Nasser would have also been sent to the back of the bus during the American Apartheid era.
If Adam Clayton Powell:
could not use a white restroom in Alabama (or Missouri) circa 1955, then we know what the situation would have been with Abdul Nasser (or a large portion of the Saudi government)–and the Egyptian, Sayyid Qutb:
(who is the father of modern pseudo-Sunni terrorism). It’s a strange psychosis of those sick with “whiteness” (i mean a prevailing mindset and not a complexion, per se) that in America, a person is called n!gger–but if that same n!gger looking person discovered something in Africa–i mean Egypt (as if it is separate from Africa), he is “white.” If one travels to the south of Arabia (Arabia Felix), as it used to be called, we find many people there, who would have been in the back of the bus 45 years ago. The same could be said of eastern coastal Arabia and southern Iran. One cannot forget all of them black looking people in India, the isles of the Indian Ocean, parts of Malaysia, Papau New Guinea and elsewhere–or the black looking folks in Australia–as for Tasmania, well, we know that all of them were hunted down like animals, used for dog food, and exterminated (just like what the Columbus family did in the Caribbean). This was done in the name of “Ideological Whiteness.”
One of the reasons that the Afrocentrists (which i am not one) point to ancient history and “paint” the people black is that many of the people were. When one looks at the people of India, until today, we find hundreds of millions of “back of the bussers”–and that is after numerous invasions by fairer complected people. The Vedas speak of this extensively–from an Aryan point of view.
The same can be said of Egypt. For the past three thousands years or so, there has been a migration of fairer skinned people into lands originally dominated by darker skinned people (there have been a few exceptions, like what happened in Spain/Portugal, Sicily, and parts of Italy during the early Islamic conquests . Egypt has been invaded by numerous fairer skinned people over the millennia (along with at least one invasion from Nubia). Yet until today–or at least a few years ago–when i walked down the streets of Cairo, i was thought to be an Egyptian (not a Sudanese or Ethiopian–but an Egyptian). Now never in my life has anyone who has seen me ever called me “white”–but in the mind of the warped white ideologues, i am a krinkly haired, kinda broad nosed, very dark skinned white person… if i am in Memphis, Egypt. In Memphis, Tennessee circa 1950, i’d be on the back of the bus–or else be a strange fruit dangling from a tree.
White folks (meaning, western Europeans) know that they don’t consider brown folks–even those with very Caucasian features (like many of those in India/Pakistan)–honorary whites in reality (let one of those dark skinned–Caucasian featured “Indian” guy from Lahore want to marry into the family and see the response). It is merely an act of equivocation used to boost their global numbers. I think we all know what is meant when we talk about “white folks”, and we ain’t talking about the various brown/black people who are sometimes granted the status of being “white.”
Okay, Sam, you made my point–Columbus “discovers” a continent of people. And he gets the credit for discovering America because he was a white guy. Man, wrap your mind around that one: a guy–because he happens to be white–gets credit for “discovering” people who already knew they existed. (Of course, you mean from the “rest of the world’s perspective”–you mean the white world. You guys gotta understand that y’all don’t represent the world perspective–that egotism of you guys is sick. Furthermore, you guys did not do too much to “bring the two worlds” together–you stole their resources and attempted to annihilate the people you “discovered.” That is not bringing folks together, Sam.)
There is plenty of evidence of blacks–as in west Africans–coming to the Americas before Columbus, including the Mandingo voyages, and even reports from you white guys who were busy “discovering” all those lost Native folks. I’ll give you plenty of evidence tomorrow.
Regarding mathematics, the Greeks inherited their sciences from Egypt–that’s what your own philosophers admit. Come on now: the Egyptians were building monumental works, studying the stars, were familiar with various branches of math, THREE THOUSAND YEARS before the Athenian democracy. Regarding later history, the knowledge of various sciences reached you guys via Moorish Spain and Sicily. I did not say it was started there (although much of it was), but reached you from points east and south by the Moors–just as the Greeks inherited their sciences from those people due south and east in a land called Egypt. Nothing complicated there Sam.
It’s important to note that Sayyid Qutb (the leader who infected the “Muslim Brotherhood” with extremist ideology) actually was radicalized BECAUSE OF THE RACIST TREATMENT HE RECEIVED IN AMERICA. He came to the US to study, got called N!gga too many times, and this embittered him towards America and the West and led to his adopting his deviant ideology. He hated the hypocrisy and immorality of America and went to extremes to try to resist it. (Maa-shaa’ Allah, it is always an odd thing when i find many Immigrant Muslims wanting to suppress any discussion about race/racism, when it is their failure to understand and address this matter, which has led to the MASSIVE bloodshed because of this guy… which stemmed from the racist treatment he received in the US of A.)
