  1. This I believe is an unfortunate truth. Oh yes! And so, where did White Supremacy come from? My answer; it did not only come from White people. White Supremacy also comes from Black people too. Wow. I didn't know this.
  2. @Troy I tried to edit this spelling error but when I clicked 'edit', a screen came up that said ACCESS DENIED...GO DADDY...
  3. JAY Z & the KALIEF BROWDER STORY I never keyed in on this story about Kalief Crowder until I began to research about Jay Z and Beyonce’s sacrifices in their bringing forth the Trayvon Martin Story. But, because this story about Kalief maybe regarded as ‘old news’ in this community and based on what has been aired, however, I would like to take a hard-right turn though and ask some questions and make some conclusions that may lead to solutions not yet considered in this case and the many other cases being reviewed in America on this same wise. In light of this story too, it seems that America would be a system that rewards bad behavior on many levels and hopefully, the deeper layers of this story will soon manifest and present some serious issues with this system that have been downplayed and accepted as the norm and issues that could help to prevent this kind of torture that has been occurring against our people on a continual basis. This young man, Kalief Browder, has a story that would also be just as compelling as all of the other young Black men and older men who have been sacrificed in this system. Nevertheless, my deep gratitude does go out to Jay Z and Harvey Weinstein for offering up their sacrifices to get these stories out and attempt to put them in the forefront of the worlds’ consciousness. Because Kalief’s story was so put together like a maze though, it took me many hours to understand. Also, even though this story was presented in depth, however, there still seems to remain many common gaps in Kalief’s story, just as the stories of the many other Black Americans who have been wrongfully charged with crimes that they were never proven to have committed. So, in my summary, I hope to highlight some deeper issues about this case and fill in some other gaps that seem to be deliberately blotted out in some reports but presented in others and, in so doing, reveal how this gorgeous young man, with such a pretty clean youthful appearance was completely exploited by the system and many people all the way to the end. Furthermore, it was not until I looked at the AALBC site and read a post about search engines that I stumbled across the Six Part Series of Time~The Kalief Browder Story, on the Bing search engine, a series that was created by Julia Willoughby-Nason and co-produced by Jay Z that really caused me to see a more better picture behind this child’s sufferings. It is so amazing to me too, that Kalief’s hell began in 2010 during the first term of former President Barack Obama and two years before Trayvon Martin had been gunned down. Kalief was arrested and imprisoned in the infamous Rikers Island at the age of sixteen (16) for three (3) years and for an alleged crime of stealing a backpack that eventually was never proven. He was held in solitary confinement for two years, starved at times and he went through torture that was caught on camera. He was given plea offers that he rejected and soon the charges were dropped but eventually, and after he was released from prison, he committed suicide. And just as one of the most incredible dynamic women I have ever come across, Ms. Michelle Alexander, and author of ‘the New Jim Crow’ stated in this docu-series, Kalief’s experience would not be unique, but nevertheless compelling. It grips me especially because it occurs during a time when Black America had hope in the presidency of Barack Obama that there would be a positive ‘Change’ for us as this was his presidential platform. Michelle Alexander, author of THE NEW JIM CROW I will start with Kalief’s mother. Her name was not given but, Kalief was taken from her at birth byway of the Child Protective Services because it was said that cocaine or some type of drug was found in her system. So Kalief was born into the system and like him, the other two older sons that this woman gave birth to was also taken from her at birth. They were put into the foster care program and given to a woman named Vernita Crowder. Now the series does revolve around both Kalief and Vernita. When Vernita was in her mid to late forties (40+), she said she had a heart attack in 2000. But, after this time, however, she and her husband began to be foster parents and she said that for the fifteen (15) years that she had been a foster parent, she had about thirty foster kids. She had another heart attack in 2007 when she was about fifty-two (52) years old. Vernita initially adopted three Hispanic-looking children, Akeem, Nicole, and Raheem and then later, she adopted the three Black American brothers, Kamal, Deione, and Kalief, and she stated that she had seven children altogether. Now in several interviews reporters asks Kalief later when he was released had he any prior convictions and he said no. But in the docu-series it turns out that was a false statement. Because the reporters failed to do proper research prior to interviews, Kalief was put into a position in which he made statements without his attorney present that subjected his credibility to totally unfair scrutiny. So, prior to Kalief’s arrest for an allege robbery though, he was arrested for joy riding in a stolen BREAD TRUCK with a friend. He was convicted of a felony for this crime and also given a probationary period. Later it also came out in a deposition hearing that Kalief began to be associated with a gang before his arrest and tattooed his Blood name, SPADE, on his arm. So, in 2010 at the age of sixteen (16) as he and a friend were walking home from a party one night, the police drove up and approached them. Kalief was identified that night by the alleged victim in the police car, a man originally from Mexico and he alleged that Kalief had jumped him and stolen his backpack two week prior. Kalief was then handcuffed and taken down to precinct 48 and later booked and sent to Riker’s Island. So now, here follows my first set of hard questions that seemingly people don’t want to ask: *Was there another obvious reason why Kalief was arrested and imprisoned for three (3) years for an alleged crime other than ‘the system failed’? In other words; Could there be another motive and deliberate intent to imprison Kalief without ‘Due Process’ that was orchestrated by way of certain people in high places? Obviously, the punish of being imprisoned for three years would not even fit the crime even if Kalief were proven to have stolen a backpack! *Because Vernita was not working on a job outside of her home, how was she not able to account for the whereabouts of her six (6) children? How can any mother keep up with six kids and lead a normal life? What was her motive to become a foster parent in her forties and especially when after she had a heart attack? Did she have a congenital heart disease? Why would her health NOT be an issue with the Social Services Department when she was approved to become a foster parent? Why did not any documentary or report ever explain why Vernita had no children of her own or disclose this issue if she did give birth to children? Why does America attack Black American women for having many children and then gloss over this issue about Vernita having six foster children in this story about Kalief? It seems as though Kalief was set up for failure from the start of his life. The investigative reporters for the Jay Z production found out more details. The Mexican man was working at a restaurant and he told his brother what happened, and his brother called the police and asked them to check the surveillance camera, but he said the police did not follow up completely. He said that his brother, the alleged victim, was so traumatized by the experience that he left America and took a flight back to Mexico, and so he left the country and therefore, Kalief was held in prison even though the very allege victim was gone out of the country. And so, this alleged crime could never even become a conviction, but the docu-series brought out that the prosecution continued to make it appear, falsely, that they had contact with the witness even though the brother stated that in Mexico, his brother had no phone or internet accessible. Meanwhile, the brother also said the prosecution only called a few times before his brother left the States and moved to a remote area in Mexico. They knew that his brother had left the country, nevertheless, they continued to tell the courts that they had the witness. Eventually, the court attempted to coerce Kalief to plead that he was guilty to a felony, but he rejected the plea. Kalief was made aware of the pitfalls of having a felony due to his older adoptive brother Akeem who had been arrested, convicted, and pled guilty to a felony charge for which he served time. Akeem was pursued and dubbed, THE BRONX RAPIST and helicopters at one point flew over Vernita’s house and she underwent a media storm when Akeem was arrested. Furthermore, Akeem denied certain aspects of this charge, but he also said during the docu-series, that he was caught one day in high school at a time when a young girl was performing oral sex to him. So eventually, Akeem pled guilty to one count of sodomy which would be a felony and he served time in a jail for three months and then in prison for five months. So Kalief refused to accept a plea bargain and continued to claim his innocence. Finally, after three (3) years of being imprisoned at Rikers, the charges were dropped and Kalief was released and was only given a metro card. Because of the anguish he continued to have as a result of being abused in prison, one day, Akeem called an attorney, Mr. Paul Prestia, and he became passionate about Kalief’s case and filed a 20-million-dollar lawsuit against New York on behalf of Kalief. And, Kalief’s attorney, Paul, sought media attention and this was how the world began to hear about Kalief’s story. Kalief was aired on many shows. Eventually, he went back to school and obtained a GED and later enrolled and began to attend the Bronx Community College. But even after all of the support Kalief was given, it became too much for this child and eventually he took his life. Kalief began to be attacked by others in his community due to the media attention and at one point, he was shot in the stomach and then at another time, he was stabbed in the face. Yet at another time, he and his brother were faced with another conflict in his community in the Bronx and it would be during this time, that he was again arrested and given a court date appearance. Most of the reports and videos almost completely omit the real reasons behind why Kalief chose to take his own life and some even make it seem that it was an abrupt decision that Kalief had made due to his mental instability. Even Vernita continually commented that she had no idea of Kalief’s predicament that led him to commit suicide other than his constant statements of being mentality imbalanced. But however, the truth would be obvious in lieu of the facts that have been shadily presented. Because of the torture Kalief underwent while being incarcerated, on several occasions he attempted to commit suicide. And after he was released, he was admitted for psychiatric help and also, was prescribed strong medication. Kalief was told that if he did not take his medication, he would not be able to go home and so, most reports divert the truth with this aspect of Kalief. However, even though Kalief was overwhelmed by this horrific abuse by this system, as a matter of observation, he was highly intellectual and was able to express himself extremely well in the media. To say that he was extraordinary would be an understatement. Therefore, ultimately and except for his attorney Paul, just about everybody close to Kalief failed him. Seemingly, due to the circumstances at that time of his death, Kalief’s decision to take his life was not an irrational one. Even though he was able to stand his ground in Rikers, however, when he was faced with so much exploitation, greed and hate in society, and even though he reached out constantly for help, he was destroyed by those adults who should have shielded him. And so, the real truth that led to the death of Kalief was because in April of 2015, he was arrested, charged with a misdemeanor, and summoned to appear in court a few days prior to his death. Previously one evening, Kalief and his brother Kamal had become involved in an altercation, and the police were called and then apprehended both brothers. During the scene, it was later said by Kamal, that the two brothers hugged each other tightly and would not let each other go, and so, they were arrested for resisting arrest, handcuffed and jailed. After their release, they were to appear in court on June 10, 2015 but this led Kalief to take his own life on June 6, 2015 at the age of 22. On that day, Kalief took a cord and hung himself in his bedroom while his mother Vernita was downstairs. In addition, Kalief realized that the interrogation he endured in the deposition required due to the lawsuit filed, that the state tried to destroy him and had no intentions for him to win his suit. His was drilled and asked a barrage of questions about his character from his childhood upwards and made to feel as if he was responsible for the mistakes he made as a child and, wrong for seeking restitution for being imprisoned for three years on an allegation that the state could never even prove. Obviously, Kalief saw what he believed to be a pattern in that after his lawsuit was underway, and then arrested, he felt that he would become railroaded back into the system and then prison. Even though he desperately tried to overcome horrible obstacles, he soon saw no escape on earth. So, he made a decision to make his own escape. Kalief was born in 1993 into a world that never gave him a chance to thrive, so he made is exit. And then about a year and four months later, Vernita died of a heart attack. Prior to Vernita’s death too, she also filed lawsuits for the wrongful death of Kalief and during this interim, her now estranged husband decided that he wanted to pursue Vernita and wanted compensation from the lawsuits. So he obtained a lawyer to file on his behalf. When Kalief was first arrested, a bail was initially set at $10,000 but then it was downgraded to $3000.00. At this point, Vernita’s estranged husband had abandoned her long before this time and even though he was retired and had money, he did not give Vernita any money to bail Kalief out of jail. The bond was set at $900.00 but Vernita did not have it. Eventually, she asked a neighbor and came up with the bond, but however, when she went to the bail bondsman to have the money processed, she was surprisingly told the bond was denied because Kalief had a previous conviction, a felony charge for joy riding in the bread truck. So then, the courts changed their stance and said that Kalief had violated his probation of his felony conviction when he was arrested for the alleged robbery of a backpack. So therefore, Kalief remained in Rikers for that three year period and endured vicious and brutal beatings byway of other inmates, most of whom were Black like him, and also beatings byway of certain security guards. He was only 155 pounds and stood about 5’5” yet, he was brutally beaten by full grown men, prison guards and some of them also encouraged the beatings byway of other inmates. In an incident when Kalief attempted suicide, the guards watched and then after he dangled, they cut him down and beat him brutally and Kalief ran out into the hallway to be seen on the surveillance cameras. Therefore, the reality of possibly being forced back into prison led Kalief to take his own life. After Vernita filed lawsuit for the wrongful death of Kalief, her estranged husband tormented her and began proceedings to sale the house that she lived in for thirty (30) years. Finally, a few days after meeting with Jay Z about this docu-series, Vernita had a heart attack and on October 14, 2016, she passed away. Three days later her estranged husband had sold the house and all five of the surviving adopted children had to move out. Now, are another set of ‘hard-questions’ that has led me to make my brief conclusions on this heart rendering story of Kalief and I pose these questions to Black African American Descendants of Slaves: *If you were an upper-class Nigerian, would you agree to young Nigerian upper class children being raised by another culture in Africa just because of both cultures being darker skinned African peoples? *If you were a Moroccan, would you agree to Moroccan children being raised up by another culture in Africa such as Ghanians just because of both cultures being in Africa? *If you were an Arab, would you agree to Arab children of your tribe and culture being raised up in a European or Chinese culture? *What makes it acceptable for Black African American children to be legally fostered out, adopted, and put under the parentage of someone of another culture just because they are famous, Brown Hispanic or Black American from perhaps Brazil (Brazilian American) or from Mexico (Mexican American) or etc.? It would not be my individual responsibility to solve America’s problem for the rape and miseducation of my people, but, to allow this American government and society to shift the burden on Black African American Descendants of Slaves (BAADOS) to solve the problems with the foster care program is a great deception. European Americans know their origins, Asian Americans know their origins, and even Nigerian African Americans may know their origins, but BAADOS are a product of the Transatlantic Slave Ship Trade and thus, many of us began our existence here in America and are a complete product of this system. This Democracy and Republic has become our god and we have no other higher power. Many other cultures around the world are born and taught the ways of their people, their culture and their Birth Right (heritage) through formal processes, but we over here in the States are expected to attach our allegiance to America only. Therefore, wouldn’t that cause the flaws in this system to be based on these premises? But however, for Black Americans to not speak out about Black children being deprived of their culture and ancestral origins would be our responsibility as well. Would people from Japan agree to Japanese children being raised up by Arabs and to be taught by Arabs the Japanese culture? Would Russian people today agree to Black American DOS raising Russian children and teaching them the Russian culture and heritage? Only as slaves held captive within the European cultures had we been allowed to nurture White American’s children. This kind of rape of the mind, soul, and spirit of our children of their culture should be formally addressed by this system with adequate solutions. When we commonly accept Black mothers as being worthless, justify them being bereaved of their own biological children, view this earthly fate as being solely their own fault, as being innately a bad person and, offer no solution to address to our government then, are we not a part of the system that has thrown the towel in on our own women? When has it been normal for a mother to want to carry a baby just to get rid of it after birth? Kalief’s mother had three gorgeous sons that were given incredible names of which two are names that link them to African origins; KAMAL [ie. KHAM-AL], DEIONE, and KALIPH [ie. Kalief]. Howbeit, like Kalief, so many Black children are born to be abused by the system from the cradle to the grave. Many Black children are born and conditioned from birth to abuse other Black people and are encouraged to show deviant behaviors that inevitably lead them into being accused, convicted, and imprisoned. The states seem to avoid spending tax money on Black children like Kalief and this too may be the underlying motivation behind the fate of Kalief as well. He was not even allowed state funding to even have a trial! When children age out of the welfare system, their caretakers stop getting those paychecks. So, many of our young adults and even parents or foster parents become viewed as worthless consumers—not producers and thus a financial burden on the tax system. So, the next step may be the prison system for many Black youth therefore, would this be another reason why Kalief may have begun to believe that the state had no intentions of making financial compensations for his imprisonment? Our Black American youth are disconnected from their birth parents on a high percentage and designed to portray negative behavior and then be rewarded for this kind of bad behavior—TEMPORARILY. Soon many of them run into further conflicts—relationship conflicts—that lead them into the court system and then prison. And again, this process began at birth. Why are Black women, the nurtures for our culture, condemned to be all that bad in that they seem to have no adequate defense? Why do many Black women submit to being in abusive environments and then react aggressively defensive continually, even at times towards our own children to the point, we are cut off? When Black Americans continue to forget that we, as Descendants of Slaves, are actually ‘Descendants of SLAVE CHILDREN’ then, are we in condemnation of our own selves and have excused this government for their lack of accountability to our being completely cut off from knowing our true origins and cultures from the Motherland? If a Black child has been fostered out to be nurtured under another culture, that child’s life is cut off from his or her natural humanity. That is a form of Human Sacrifice. Have we not been raped of our culture and our heritage? Kalief believed he was cursed but why did not anyone explain to him that it would actually be the opposite in that the behaviors of people acting against him and exploiting him for financial gain in this society were cursed? Hindsight may have led some people to justify Kalief’s false imprisonment because the signs were already present at the time of his second arrest that his future would be bleak as he was free to associate with gangs and was not doing well in school. So, outwardly the eradication of Solitary Confinement for young teenagers 16 and 17 years old due to Kalief’s story may be a great victory but, inwardly, could this also be viewed as just a band aide for a bigger problem; the continual incarceration and captivity of Black Americans? Right there in New York, we have been made to anguish over the horrors of the destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centers, but on the other hand, we have been blinded to the presence of the infamous prison systems in that same region that many BAADOS are forced to reside in and are the products of the greatest trade commodity in America that led to the trade foundation upon which this powerful system was built upon. I have researched and found some brief you tube videos about this story on google search engine. But afterwards, I actually found the entire series that was later completed and aired in 2017 on the Bing search engine. So, I have selected a few of the brief videos to share here and also the entire six-part series that features Ms. Michelle Alexander and many other activist who share their passionate viewpoints in the life of this amazing and beautiful young man, the late Kalief Browder. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85EzySEBQo4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EZvKuW6yT0 Pt 1 THE SYSTEM p2 THE ISLAND p3 THE BING p4 THE WITNESS P5—Injustice for All P6 THE AFTERLIFE https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=15B7A5CDE4D23C31B69E15B7A5CDE4D23C31B69E&&FORM=VRDGAR https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=8AF456746BDB5720F7938AF456746BDB5720F793&rvsmid=15B7A5CDE4D23C31B69E15B7A5CDE4D23C31B69E&FORM=VDRVRV https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=4848980B7EB2D07848334848980B7EB2D0784833&&FORM=VDRVRV https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=E78C04726EF557F6BFB5E78C04726EF557F6BFB5&&FORM=VDRVRV https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=F08DAA8E53B4E9A9F2D0F08DAA8E53B4E9A9F2D0&&FORM=VDRVRV https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Kalief+Browder+Part+3&&view=detail&mid=D8587FA996742380EE45D8587FA996742380EE45&&FORM=VDRVRV
  4. @Troy Yeah, well, after reading this post, I used BING search engine today and all day and was well rewarded. I found video documentaries that did not show up on Google and was incredibly pleased!
  5. @Delano Thank you. And yes, there can be different ways of looking at abuse. For me, though, It is impossible for me to see 'abuse' as growth, but however, I think at times 'abuse' may be incorrectly viewed as other types of harships. In some sense, I do think some people can overcome abuse and be the better for it, but it is the kind of people that are completely broken that makes any form of abuse purely evil. Like you, I have a hard time rationalizing abuse.
  6. [II] ] Hidden Behind Mockery: BLACK NAMES of Eurasia~ PECHENEG During my research, I recently stumbled across this term that became described as ‘an EXONYM’ meaning a term that was used by others to describe a certain people in the past. However, after more research, I have come to discover much more truths about this term than what has been clearly written today and also, this term in its’ origin would not necessarily be an exonym altogether. But at some point, this term PECHENEG not only became altered but it also became demeaning and perhaps that would be why it is not a common word used today here in America in this sense. When I looked farther into the history about this term too, my conclusions are that what has been provided today completely clouds the whole truth. The fashion in which this term has been defined becomes a challenge to even summarize in script to reveal the wider scope and I believe that it would take a step-by-step process to unfold the complete truth based on also, a timeline to be included. So my first approach in making a summary of what I have learned would be to briefly offer my conclusive findings and then present the educational statements and references and then by-and-by unravel the confusion that has been so seemingly meticulously woven into script so as to render this kind of history in the form of a Byzantine plot. So first of all, let me conclude quickly on one of the most glaring points overlooked in the historical rendition offered on the internet sources. Even though the PECHENEGS are defined to originate in the east, however, that would be a major false statement to the highest degree and this part-truth reveals that in the very least, this part of academia has been a deliberate intent to mislead—someone. Yes, historical proof does place the PECHENEGS in the east, but that would only be part of the truth: The Pechenegs or Patzinaks [4] were a semi-nomadic Turkic people from Central Asia speaking the Pecheneg language which belonged tothe Oghuz branch of Turkic language family. [3] Three of the ruling clans of the Pechenegs were the Kankalis/Kangli…. … The Hungarian word for Pecheneg is beseny. [6] … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pechenegs That statement could not be farther from the truth in just about every aspect, based on what I have uncovered. Some sources will abruptly reveal that today, that would be the very name used for the EAST EUROPEAN BALKAN COUNTRY [ANCIENT GREEK LANDS] we know today as BOSNIA! Yes. So no, the origin of the Pechenegs would definitely not be Central Asia. That would be a complete lie and a well planned statement made by many a scholars in our Western Civilization. Another deliberate false report about the PECHENEGS [ie CUMANS] would be that they are a Sunni Muslim people in origin; this would be a part-truth. In short, for the Pechenegs that did live in Central Asia, especially Mongolia, they were driven eastwards at a much more distant time from the west. They are not originally from Central Asia, but they are a Western people in origin and this would be a well known but hidden fact by scholars today. In fact, everything the Pechenegs of the east did, actually defined them for who they really are in origin. Their Oghuz description would be based on their being enslaved much farther east at one point in time. But the Oghuz Branch became known as the Western Branch as they eventually broke off from the other Oghuz Huns of the far east. In fact the history of the Pechenegs is so vast, it would take time to even unfold. Nevertheless, the real hidden aspect, one that has been kept completely hidden would be that they defined themselves in every aspect too, as Hebrew Israelites. Yes, the term ‘PECHENEG’ stems from the root name BECHEN [ie. Becher, Bacharites...] which is written in the Bible during the days of Moses for the tribe of Joseph. Not only does this term define the Oghuz Turks in Mongolia, but it was common in BOSNIA and the whole of the BALKANS [ex. the Church of the Order of the PECS in East Europe]. But Sssssh! That is suppose to be a secret, A BLACKOUT from the minds of Black African people today: a TURKOMAN WOMAN [TURKUMAN-- CUMAN--PECHENEG, etc.] the Cuman-Kypchak Turks. The Oghuz Turks of Central Asia that came to form the Western Branch and that eventually marched into Byzantine Turkey Anatolia defined themselves as THE TEN ARROWS which would be a direct correlation to THE TEN TRIBES of Israel in the Bible days with their headquarters in SAMARIA after they broke off from King Solomon's son, and who lived in the Middle East prior to their overthrow in the 660s BC byway of the Assyrian Empire. So therefore, further reading through all of the confusion will reveal these little details about the Pecheneg Turkic Oghuz Hun people of Mongolia who later became more defined by their relatives who later joined them. So even though the term they would also used to describe themselves has been extremely suppressed, it too may resurface and become as common of a description as it was during their domination over much of Mongolia up through the Crusades. The script today can’t avoid all of their history because they stormed west into Turkey and East Europe with a rage; ABRAHAM, but therefore, they are called THE SELJUK EMPIRE in our history books. But indeed, they called themselves by their more ancestral name. they would answer to THE KERAITE EMPIRE [ie. KARAITE, or BLACK] EMPIRE. They would be the very reason for the start of the Crusades. And yes, to say that they were defined as Muslims would be part truth, but the part that is left off, would be that they were varied due to hundreds of years of going into and out of captivity. And they did bond with their ABRAHAMITIC relatives, of ISLAM [ie. Ishmael & etc.]. Some of these Karaites remained of that religion while many of the Keraites became Christians. What’s the big deal? We still today, are confused about the true history that revolves around the Christian Movement, and that doesn’t make us non-African Americans. At any rate, to complete my brief summary now and to make it more binding, I will break down another deeply hidden aspect of the Pechenegs of the east and the West in East Europe. The founder of this Seljuk Empire, named SELJUK THE WARRIOR had four sons; namely, Moses, Israel, John and Michael and it would be from his sons sprung the Seljuk Turkish Empire. And from him came Alp Arslan. The symbolism of the great Alp Arslan who led a force of some say, a small force initially, of Hebrew Israelites, KARAITES, into Turkey Anatolia to fight against the massive Byzantine forces and the Crusaders was the same symbol used by the tribe of Judah in Biblical times and today in ETHIOPIA; THE LION; the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. That man was so mad about being attacked by the Crusaders that it was said he wore a white death shroud in front of his massive military force to inspire them to arms. The down side of this historical past though would be that it was definitely a Black-on-Black conflict as it was in the distant Trojan War in the same country--ARMAGEDDON. Yes, the Varangian guards were amongst the Byzantines and many other kinds of people were on both sides, but it was definitely a Black-on-Black aggression; like the Biblical King David versus the Philistines. Unfortunately, we are many times all somewhat related but yet, we fight for the cause of someone else’s interest. The Byzantines were in conflict over the Catholic idols and the Seljuk Turks were in conflict, still over their stance in who Jesus really was when he walked the earth. And all the while, they were being scripted, the spellings of their names altered so as to wipe them out of history. The name of Moses became Musa, Michael became Mikel, John or Jonah became Yunus, and another common name amongst these Seljuks was Solomon which became Suleiman, and Israel became Izrail. LOL. Meanwhile, many of us over hear on the other side of the waters don’t even believe the Israelites even existed… mission to deceive accomplished. Nevertheless, the Seljuk Empire was for real! --- until that is, Daniel’s prophecy about ‘the abomination of desolation became a reality’. Then the Black African men, whether they were Muslim, Saracens, Huns, or Seljuks, or called themselves Karaites, Cumans, or Pechenegs; their dead bodies were piled up in heaps as fallen victims of the cannons. – Cannons, though, were mostly used byway of their lighter skinned Hebrew Israelite brothers, tricked and deceived into being on the other side of the cannons, on the other side of the deception and on the frontlines in the Genocidal attempt to wipe the Black men off the map. – THE GOLDEN HORDE. Kip Kip Kip…. Kipchaks… Oh there is so much more hidden history to be resurfaced! Seljuk (Warlord) ... In 985, the Seljuq clan split off from the bulk of the Tokuz-Oghuz, [1] a confederacy of nine clans long settled between the Aral and Caspian Seas. [2] …. The names of his four sons—Mikail (Michael), Israil (Israel), Musa (Moses), and Yunus (Jonah) – suggest … According to some sources, Seljuk began his career as an officer in the Khazar army. [6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seljuk_(warlord) *My Note: another Byzatine puzzle once unfolded will be obvious that the Khazarites were connected to the HAZARS of the ancient Assyrian Empire... absolutely nothing to do with Father Abrahams people! LOL! They spoke completely different dialects in the Crimea. Okay. It's time for me to publish... smh. Alp Arslan
  7. Yes. Okay, so I think I have a case of tunnel vision. no. but on a personal note, having endured forms of abuse, however, I have become cautious and been able to let go and break from the abuser. yes, I agree here.
  8. @Pioneer1 Maybe that is the big question that Colin has responded to in his actions. Maybe he can see a bigger picture. I'm not sure either, but something strange is going on in America. I think there is some kind of movement going on and certain Black people and others too are being targeted. In the long run, maybe Colin sees where the NFL may tie into something. There are a lot of Black men in this sport and well, maybe they may feel exploited too, as well paid pawns, while other Black men are being killed by police. The White House deals with economical issues and so, what about all of that money being passed around in the sports world? Just recently Will Smith starred in a film about how football players are being exploited and this too, seems like it was all a part of some movement from higher levels than just the movie making industry. This has become a legal issue. All of these cases about CTI or some kind of brain damage being downplayed are now a legal issue and a money issue and more. This system is crumbling and I think lawmakers are scrambling to try and make their fall a little easier at the expense of others. The NFL players maybe sensing something on these underlying levels and are connecting the dots, so to speak. Yes, I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist, but that is what I am thinking about. Right now, I just have a lot of questions, but they are loaded questions though. Something strange is going on in the world today, and not just in America.
  9. @Pioneer1 This is a very interesting observation and I agree.
  10. @Pioneer1 You have refreshed my memory! LOL. This is true.
  11. @DelanoOh, okay. Thank you for letting me know. Well, like you said, this question would be in a certain context. Regarding some points in this thread in which some women go into abusive relationships even after they 'screen', this kind of abuse may seem like it is a weakness, but even in this regards, it can be subjective. But when a child, a young girl, is abused, that is a predator taking advantage of innocence. But here we go: When I think about your questions in lieu of this very thread, my mind goes directly to 'the innocent blonde syndrome'. Many times I heard stories of how some women 'play dumb' for a future gain. Some women have went into relationships just to advance their financial status and they submit to abuse, knowing that eventually, they intend to use it as a tool to get out of the relationship. That is a game that some women do play-- as you say, it is kind of like a whorish behavior. In this sense, it is a controlling situation. So yes, in this sense, 'Being abused does improve the person's quality of life' -- she walks away with perhaps, child support and a great percentage of the mans' paycheck for 18 years. But no, when a person submits to abuse, they wouldn't feel strong or confident, just hopeful that they will be able to endure. For many Black women of the older generation, I cringe when I think about some of the hell they went through. It's different for those kind of women coming after the slave experience. I don't know how they survived. Indeed, many of them didn't. I remember sitting at the table constantly hearing my relatives tell my cousins and I to get married, no matter what, in order to improve your status. They would say, it better to get 'a piece of a no good man than to not get married at all'. And so, as a result, I realize how they did become subjective to terribly abusive situations, that, unfortunately, they believe is the only way to live. And in turn, they too, play games but it is not that same as 'the dumb blonde syndrome'. Yes, but asking beyond what a person answers and offers initially, may be delving deeper amd searching for more underlying answers, and this can be a psychoanalysis process. Inquiring deeper into a person's initial response would be based on you wanting to go beyond what is offered, and that makes you a wise person. That speaks a lot of you, but that can be offensive too though.
  12. REST IN POWER... Thank You Jay Z & Beyonce The Trayvon Martin Story Well, it was only just recently that the very 7-11 where this young teen, Trayvon Martin, visited before he was gunned down has been closed down. This story still grips me. I am so overwhelmed at the mere mention of his name. I am looking forward to this deput to occur on this upcoming July 30, 2018 of this documentary series. And even more strange is the circumstances of my own life in how it ties to this very story. https://youtu.be/97sB1Xjvkok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XfZ6aKhyfI Last year, and because of being displaced due to a recent hurricane, I found myself in Missouri and one day as I was driving down Florissant ave, I just happened to turn into a parking lot that I later found out was the very QT convenience store that Michael Brown had went to just before he was gunned down. I couldn't believe it. But then, my life experienced another shock. My relative moved due to a job transfer to Central Florida, and to work in Orlando. Well it was only a few days later that he told me he finally found a nice apartment community about thirty minutes from his job and so, I googled to learn about the area. Then I made the call to him and said, do you know where you are in proximity? I then told him, that you live in Sanford, Florida. I then said, "Do you know about the history of Sanford?" ANd, he said, he had no idea. I then told him, that is the very area where Trayvon Martin was gunned down. He was in total disbelief! Soon, I relocated too and then found out that I lived only about five minutes from the very place where Trayvon was killed. And in the interim, I learned how to make a video and captured the very 7-11 store and then drove from there to the Retreat at Twin Lakes. But about three weeks later, I went to redo the video to make it better, and 'what-do-you-know' but the store was closed down! This occurred in the month of May 2018 and I'm wondering does this store closing have anything to do with Jay-Z's film debut or what? At any rate, I can't believe I am in Florida. In February 2012, I was living in North Carolina with no idea I'd ever be leaving my home. I needed to be in a better place, but this was not what I saw in my future! In all my life, I would have never believed that I would ever have money or be able to visit or live in Missouri or Florida! But to end up in the very places were these recent sad events have taken place in America is mind boggling for me. What am I doing here!!!?
  13. Yes, that's interesting. Yes, I believe though that the museum is awesome and for me, an added dimension in my quest of knowlege. I am so surprised to learn about this town. My relative works in Orlando and commonly spoke about Kissimee county, but I never knew about Eatonville and the kind of history it holds. I hear quite often, about a lot of police activity in this area. Now, I feel there may be a connection. I see Eatonville on this map and can see now, how it is a part of Central Florida.
  14. @Cynique Well said! Personality can get in the way of an honest debate-- honest and well needed debates that I believe need to take place in these times, debates that may lead to answers that we don't have today to solve some terrible problems going on in our society.
  15. Hello @Delano-- I don't know if I agree with you completely here. If a person has been abused and don't defend themselves, I would think that would be a sign of weakness. But if a person has been abused or exploited and puts up a fight or a defense, that may not be a sign of weakness, as I can see. I do see a person having an 'internal weakness' though or a sense of insecurity about something even if it is a reality or a perceived notion. The issue in this thread regard people who play games though and in this sense, it still may be a sincere for a defense and not just for trying to control someone. I think here is where I agree with Cynique in that @Cynique : LOL! Now see @Delano -- This is one sided! Are you implying that all 'Black' people or 'Black women' that play games are whores!? Why would a whore need to put up a defense mechanism? I assume this comment is based on my statement as it comes directly after my post. My definition of 'a whore' or specifically 'a Black Whore' is subjective. When I view Black women in this system, I always consider whether or not they came from a home where they had a father figure and a healthy environment in which she was allowed to be a child. Wow! That is amazing! Well alright! LOL!
  16. @Cynique, @Pioneer1 So true. This is so true too, and today, for me, it is very frustrating. This process too, I believe led to a high percentage of Hen-pecked men in our culture, more than we want to admit. I learned through social media about 'the Watts Riot' and then saw some films and it was amazing to see how we evolved. Shortly after these times, came the obsession with the Peggy Lipton' look in the Mob squad. I never even watched that show, I was too young at the time, but somehow, I became rapped up in that propaganda. Black women became obsessed with relaxing their hair and Black men became obsessed with white women. So by the time I became a part of the dating scene, I found myself somewhat defensive at times when I was approached by Black men. I found myself in a dilemma; I wanted to be in the company of Black men but then, I was predjudice and defensive thinking, I was going to be exploited if I let down. I think some people may view me as being brow beaten, but I don't see myself that way at all. I am cautious. @Pioneer1That is exactly what it is!--a Defense Mechanism. And, I don't have an answer yet as to why some women end up with a terrible relationship even after using this approach. I don't have an answer yet, but I am working on it, because I think it is an important question to answer! This 'Gender conflict' between Black men and women definitely has something to do with the Movement of White Supremacy against our well being, but still, how do we move beyond this? I don't know, but I think that if Black women don't put up some kind of defense mechanism to cause Black men to slow their steps when they think they can just dominate us, then we will be destroyed! Some Black men are not genuine in their reasons for approaching Black women and sometimes they play too many games!
  17. @Kalexander2Yes the theory is very interesting and also, I agree that the global aspect of conspiracies must also be regarded. Sometimes, it takes time to see how all of the issues mesh together on a global scale do pan out as a whole.
  18. @Troy Awesome picture! Yes, you have no idea how many times that I have asked someone questions about their homeland, and I ask them about certain histories I have read about, and they look at me as if I had two heads.
  19. Neither LA nor MS but South Carolina. I am in Sanford, Fl. I actually live only about 7 minutes from where the late Trayvon Martin's father resided. Sanford is beautiful around the Seminole Town Center where I live. I love to also drive down Rinehart Rd to Lake Mary and, I love to drive down SR 46 to downtown Sanford's historic district. You know, I read a little of the overview of Barracoon and I was so surprised that the slave cargo was around 1860. That would be after the Fugitive Slave law of 1850 and then almost before the Emancipation law. That is insane! My Great grandmother came from cargo from EAst Africa and I believe this story is about cargo from West Africa in 1860. I have gotten the stories about her from my aunts, one of whom knew the slave girl/woman personally. This particular aunt is still living today. She is in her nineties. She recants the stories as if she is sill living in that moment.
  20. @Troy This is so true. I just commented earlier in another post in that after living in Florida for a whole year, I never knew the history that surrounds Eatonville! It was only after I read about this that I have become even more enriched. Florida has so much more history than I could have ever imagined. I am simply stunned. I am a Navy Brat and have lived in many areas in the States, but I am so shocked to see only a small part of Florida, and now that I am here, I realize that there is no way that I can possibly take in all of the mjaor events that have taken place in this state. I've never seen anything like it in all of my life! I lived in Southern California and been to Hollywood, and well, IMO, Florida beats California by a much wider margin. Florida seems like 'a country to me' instead of a state in America. It is so varied. So, I agree that travelling gives a much deeper insight to a place but only if you read will you see more information. If you don't read, you will definitely be 'uninformed'. Furthermore though, I am the kind of person that can't ignore the down side of many places, and this has led me to not really care about travelling as a tourist to see different places. I'd rather watch a video, a documentary. The beautiful things you see in many places covers up a much bigger picture of economic oppressed areas and, the process in achieving these earthly paradises on earth are still there but ignored by most--I can't do that.
  21. @Pioneer1Thank you!!! Absolutely!--although that would be a crude definition of a much bigger picture, in that these giants were "fallen angels", however, part of their genetics reveal that they do not come from 'the modern mankind'--Homonids. Their presence, based on my understanding of research into Genetics, come from intermixing, however it was a specific kind of 'Selective Breeding' that led to their presence.
  22. Wow that's interesting! I came to live in Central Florida last year as I am temporarily displaced and after reading this post and googling Eatonville, I am surprised to learn that it is about 30 minutes from my home! I didn't know Ms. Hurston was from Florida. In all my life, I never in a million years thought that I would ever have a chance to see Florida, in fact, I had mixed emotions about it being a part of 'the Deep South'. I also found out that Ray Charles was also a part of Florida too. I am definitely looking forward to reading Barracoon! This book would be the first time I have heard of someone, other than my own families' story, being stolen from Africa and forced on a slave ship after the Brits ended the trade!
  23. @Pioneer1 I tried to make a comment weeks ago, but my comment was not posted due to what was a 'caching' problem that has now been fixed. I wanted to address this statement because of my research. In terms of the 'Blacks' you refer to that were originally in this region before the Caucasians invaded I agree. But in respect to the dates and times, I think there is so much more to this subject of giants. And the reason why I mention this is due to my study on 'Genetics' in terms of the presence of giants. For this reason, I do see a distinction in the kind of giants you refer to from other kinds of giants written about to have lived in this region. Even in the Bible, I see the science of 'giants' mentioned with a distinction with regards to Colorism. The Bible details, even an Israelite man, who fits the very description you write about; SAUL. Saul is described as being very tall and he is linked to the KISHITES of that region. This also makes a lot of sense due to a Biblical description of an intense Civil conflict in Israel that involved the tribe of Benjamin of which was Saul's tribe. After that conflict, the Benjamites were cut down to a small number, and these survivors intermixed with the Hamitic people in the region, and this DNA shows up in Saul. However, my understanding of the tall Black Ethiops in that region are not the same as the giants like GOLIATH of GATH. Based on my studies, the Bible was accurate in its' description of giants, but I recognize a distinction. The Gathite giant, Goliath had his origins in MYCENAE and this would be significant in his description as a giant. Not only that, but I also have a personal story that links to my understanding of the presence of 'giants' in their assocation with lighter skinned origins. The giant gene does not come from Black people in origin! Therefore, I do agree with you in that the so-called 'Caucasians' have caused confusion in getting a better understanding of the truth when they migrated down into this land from the North [ie Northeast] and I see how their influence also was apart of the presence of the giants too.
