Islam. Join us on the next episode of MOORISH SCIENCE RADIO where the All Mighty Supreme Team will discuss the very social, psychological, political, and spiritual effects of those who believe that they are black people today; and why our nation or race of people are lagging behind the rest of the world intellectually and economically.
We will attempt to trace back the very origins of the first usage of this term as a descriptive of our people.
We will show how the Joshuaites (so called Jews) began to call our people "black" based on their Mosaic nomenclature and how this is constructed in the Torah; and we will also show how Christianity picked up these descriptions for our people and also prove that the "black man", according to these texts in its ORIGINAL INTENT was based on their image of the devil.
We will examine the political implications of a people cut-off from any national link to any nation or country or body politic and how this effects us in the moment and why we live in utter squalor in this American society.
We will examine the scientific meanings of why "black according to science means death" and how we are cut off from the great God of the Universe because we uphold this sinful name of being black.
We will be putting forth a challenge to all so called "black" scholars and afrocentrists to prove that we are in fact a black people and ask them to give us DEFINITIVE PROOF that we called ourselves black people prior to our contact with the pale skinned nations of Europe.
WE ARE MOORS AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MOORS AND WILL ALWAYS BE MOORS! COME AND HEAR THE TRUTH!
The issue of black self-hatred is something I am supposed to pretend does not exist. However, the great French psychiatrist Frantz Fanon wrote about this issue in his groundbreaking book Black Skin White Masks, in a chapter called "the Lived Experience of the Black Man". According to Fanon, the black man is viewed in the third person, and he isn't seen as a three-dimensional human being. The black man internalizes the perspectives of white society and its negative thoughts about blackness affect his psyche. In the chapter, Fanon discusses a white child calling him the "N word" and how he becomes cognizant of how he is different and viewed as someone people should fear.
There is also a fear by some black people that discussing the issue of self-hatred is a sign of weakness. There is a discourse that black people engender: that black is beautiful. But the truth is, the image of blackness is ugly – at least it's perceived that way. There is nothing special or wonderful about being a black male – it is a life of misery and shame.
The issue of black self-hatred is usually depicted from a female point of view. There are documentaries such as Dark Girls which aired on Oprah's OWN network earlier this year, in which black women discuss their feelings of self hatred for having dark skin. There are numerous books, articles, documentaries, and essays published by black female writers describing black self-hatred. Black women are not afraid to speak out about their self-loathing, yet for some reason, black men are silent about our own contempt for what we are.

Tune in as the Sistas chat with Carleton Bluford the filmmaker behind 2%, an upcoming documentary about Utah's Black population. The film seeks to shed light on one of the state’s smallest racial groups. The latest census shows African-Americans make up less than two-percent of Utah’s population. The hope is to find out who makes up this two-percent; where they came from; why they stay in Utah; and to take a look at how we define Blackness in America. Carleton and the film's producer Lonzo Liggins, are not only a part of Utah's racial minority, but also it's religious minority because they are not members of the LDS church Their documentary will feature others who share their experiences as well as the experiences of Black Latter-day Saints. 2% features voices such as former NBA player Thurl Baily, Calvary Baptist Church Pastor France A. Davis and Nadia Crow, Utah's first Black primary weekday day news anchor.

"It's black vs. non black, when critiquing 'non whites' behavior under RWS" - Monique
More Hispanics Declaring Themselves White:
"There is mounting evidence that Hispanics are succeeding in American society at a pace similar to that of prior waves of European immigrants."
“A matter of death and death”: Confronting anti-black racism among Latinos:
"The citizenship we envision for ourselves, however, is not the limited form of citizenship that black people still experience today....his [Zimmerman's] investment in white supremacy both informed the way he hunted down Trayvon Martin and the way he was acquitted for doing so. While many non-black Latinos took to the streets in anger after the verdict, some of us also remained silent about our friends and family members who told us that Zimmerman was correct to kill Martin."

COSMIC MELANIN OR COSMIC BLACKNESS
TODAY IS THE INTRODUCTION TO ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS TOPICS
EVERY DISCUSSED....................COSMIC MELANIN THE LIFE FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE!
BARACK OBAMA = 68 = MELANIN.
If Cosmic Melanin is really the life force of the universe, the key to the sustainance of life, found predominantly in the original man (the root race of the Earth); and if Richard King is really correct that it is the doorway or portal to spirituality, then what are the odds that during this monumental shift of the ages, the name and color of the man that holds the highest office on the planet is in perfect Gematria concordance with the source of life?
