Just received an interesting email from someone named Brandy. It said:
Just read your blog in regard to Farrakhan and Elijah Muhammed [I don’t know if they meant this one or this one]. If you do not know you will know now. It has been scientifically proven that ADAM AND EVE WERE BLACK! THE ORIGINAL MAN WAS BLACK! THE EGYPTIANS WERE BLACK! MOSES WAS BLACK! THE ORIGINAL JEWS ARE BLACK! ABRAHAM WAS BLACK! JESUS IS AND WAS BLACK! IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION IT TELLS YOU THAT GOD HIMSELF IS BLACK! BUT YOUR WHITE SUPREMACIST THINKING WILL KEEP YOU FROM ACKNOWLEDGING OR ACCEPTING THE TRUTH! The ones who populated this earth was black. Sorry to tell you but your cousin is absolutely correct. Beware of false prophets and the teachings of religious zealots. I will not sit here and debate nor argue with you for I know the truth as well as your cousin. Too bad you are blind to fact or choose not to see it as it truly is due to your white supremacist beliefs. You have the audacity to call yourself prophet nick and speak such words against Gods original people.
Imagine that, half a so-called minority (that would be the Puerto Rican half, and we could debate just how ‘white’ the Sicilian/Napoletano half is, but let’s not) and I’m a white supremacist? Hmmm… I attend a predominantly black church and claim many more black friends than white and I’m a white supremacist? Hmmm… I have many cousins who are both Puerto Rican and black whom I love dearly and I’m a white supremacist? Common case of someone talking out of their anus. This is all very interesting, and well, quite sad. Sad because it bespeaks the mindset of an indoctrinated cultist.
Worse than the claim that I’m a white supremacist is this notion that everyone in the Bible was black. What respected and credentialed anthropologist or Biblical scholar on the face of the Earth would support such a claim? None that I’m aware of. And this bit about “scientific proof” that Adam and Eve were black… please. You’d have an impossible time “proving” that they were actual people let alone what color they were.
But here’s the crux of the issue, and this is a point that I have raised numerous times to my cousin and one that he has never even attempted to answer. If “[t]he ones who populated this earth was black” as Brandy claims and my cousin also believes, then isn’t everyone black, to include whites? Let me break this down a little further.
The story goes that this scientist named Yakub conducted experiments on the island of Pulan (a.k.a. Patmos). On this island he “grafted the white devil.” The way he did this was by breeding the original blacks with each other and in the process of this breeding taking every genetically inferior child (i.e. the lighter skinned children) and eventually breeding them with other light skinned people, until eventually they developed pale skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair. Think of Jacob with his father-in-law’s sheep here (Gen. 30).
So here’s the problem. If blacks were bred with blacks, who were then bred with lighter blacks, who were then bred with lighter blacks, so on and so forth until they became the “grafted white devil” then how is this “grafted white devil” not “original” and “black”? Especially in light of the fact that the NOI tells us that if we have a drop of “original blood” in us then we are the original man! I’ve never received an answer to this question, ever. And trust me, I’ve asked it a few times.
Brandy may not want to debate or argue with me, but that’s only because (s)he can’t.
