“Moorish Chief”, Eduard Charlemont, Austrian, 1848–1906

From 711A.D. began an increased European connection to other parts of the African / Islamic World — The Moorish Empire.

Few are familiar with Moorish history and far too many of them have misconceived notions of who we (The Moors) truly are.

Even more so, most people are completely unaware of our existence and the unquantifiable impact we’ve had on the advancement of the human race.

In case you’ve forgotten (or haven’t been exposed to this history), here are a few portraits of Moors:


Imagine this simple scene:
You have a child at school reading stories about the “Black Knight”, and the “Black Death” and the “Black Plague”. And then the child thinks, “Oh, and I’m a black child”…

Why are people are so wedded to the term “black”?
By definition “Black” deludes to slavery, wickedness and death

And the justification for it is, “Well, it’s because the European made it negative.”

It’s the Europeans word, it was negative before it was applied to African people. It’s like they’re getting it backwards.

It isn’t that Europeans said “We’re gonna make this word “black” negative…


Look up names. Look up places.
You want to figure out who these people are.
What these places are.
Get a feel for them, get adventurous. Look them up in the Bible dictionary.
In my opinion, you can’t have enough dictionaries.

You have to have a bunch of reference books:

  • Etymology book,
  • A dictionary with the etymology brackets,
  • Hebrew lexicon,
  • Strong Concordance and lastly,
  • A Metaphysical Bible dictionary

When it comes to dictionaries and reference materials, I say, “Get them all!”


Who REALLY was the one called Jesus?

Where is the line drawn between the man and the myth?
And what secrets does history, geography and the Bible itself reveal to us about the real Jesus?

Jesus arguably has the most spoken name in the entire world.

The Holy Bible, which is now available in approximately 4,876 languages, is printed more than any book in history. Whether it be on Christmas or Easter, a large percentage of the world recognizes Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Yet why is it that so many know so little about the actual man…


No caption really needed. It’s cotton. So-called “Negroes” picked it as slaves from 1779–1865.

Did you hear Tyler Perry’s riveting speech at the BET Awards?
Didn’t it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside….
Until he called himself….

…A Negro.

But for most, it didn’t even matter. Why is this? Let’s dig in.

In this story we will discuss the infamous N-word (negro), black, and other terms used to define a group of people. We’ll also do a simple experiment to see if Tyler Perry truly is “black” or a “negro”.

Warning: The following story is not “easy reading.” It will require you to think beyond everything you’ve been told or taught. …


“It is not strange; there are no happenings; law governs all events.

Nothing happens by chance or outside Universal Law

Every action has a reaction or consequence — “You reap what you sow.”

One of the most important lessons involving your conduct reveals itself in the Universal Law of Cause and Effect: “Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law.”

Everyone of your thoughts, words and deeds are Causes. These Causes set off waves of energy throughout the universe which in turn create Effects. Some effects may be desirable, others may be undesirable.

Over time the effects you create become exponential…
