In the Old Testament, many believe that there is proof that Black people were mentioned. According to Dr. Dan Rogers, in “in Genesis 10, Nimrod, son of Cush (whose name means “black”), founded a civilization in Mesopotamia. In Genesis 11, Abraham was from Ur of the Chaldees, a land whose earliest inhabitants included blacks.” There may be mentions of early Black civilization in the Bible but because much of the Bible has been interrupted to racially identify the superior race, these findings/readings have been opted out by religious “men.” For centuries, the stories and the interpretation of the Bible have been by White men. The original text of the Bible was Hebrew or Yәhudi. Hebrew language is a West Semitic language of the Afroasiatic language family. Afroasiatic language consist of 300 different dialects predominantly spoken in the Middle East, South Africa, the Horn of Africa, and parts of Sahel. How is it that White men from Europe or Italy have complete understanding of Hebrew language and analysed it to perfection? Am I supposed to believe what is begin taught in schools and churches? Respectively, people are capable of learning new languages and understanding them, but history is showing that many of the interpretations of the Bible are wrong especially when it pertains to Black people.

There are two main stories in the Bible which “justified” the enslavement of Black people and make them sub-human. These are the stories about Ham and Cain curses. If you’ve read the Bible, than you know that Cain is Abel’s brother. God cursed Cain because he killed his brother and lied. Ham is Noah’s (Noah’s Ark) son. The curse of Ham is: Noah, Ham’s father, was naked and drunk and passed out. Instead of his son Ham covering his eyes, he looked upon his father’s naked flesh. Because of this, Canaan, Noah’s son, was cursed with servitude. According to the Bible, “Genesis 9:25: “And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.” Neither one of the curses state anything about Black or Black skin. However, religious individual, all the way into the 20th century, used these curses, especially Ham’s” to establish that Black people were servants, sub-human, and sinners. However, science and Egypt tell a different story.
Scientist done thousands of experiments and research to trace back the origin of the original humans or the “Mother” and “Father” of the human race. And what they have figured out is that everyone has one common mother and father original from what we know as today Africa. The mother is most likely from East Africa. Scientist formerly call her scientific Eve. The huffington post reports, “In addition, mitochondrial DNA from the men, as well as similar samples from 24 women, revealed that all women on the planet trace back to a mitochondrial Eve, who lived in Africa between 99,000 and 148,000 years ago — almost the same time period during which the Y-chromosome Adam lived.”
So that means the mother and the father of humans are Black. If the majority of the world wants to say that Black people are from Africa than that means Scientific Adam and Eve must be Black right? This is no longer a theory, it has been proven, over and over. Adam and Eve are from Africa.
Back to the subject of Egypt, Egypt is a greek term meaning Black and is located in Africa. Egypt also had one of the most powerful kingdoms and civilizations in the world. However, many will tell you that the Egyptian Queens and Pharaohs were White. But what those people have forgotten are the stereotypes that they’ve given to Black people and how perfectly those caricature match to the first Egyptian Pharaoh.
King Aha-Mena-Narmer or King Menes is the 1st Pharaoh of Egypt. His features consist of the common description of a Black person: wide nose and big lips. It is high probably that the first King is Black. But of course when the skin dissolves all that is left are bones. So does it matter what complexion he was?
The work, time, and patience it took people to try and erase Black royalty, kingdoms, and faces from history have a strange way of entering into the future. The truth always has a way of coming out.
