For years, people of the world have been led to believe that the
people of the bible were white people, when in fact they were black.
Hollywood, one of the many contributing factors to this cause, isn't
innocent to this either, they take the front line for the ranks of
deception. We the people of the world should not continue to let this
occur because the ones to be affected by this will be the children of
Movies, television and some white people portray the people of the
bible as white. What should it matter, if they are white or black.
Should it matter, if they are white or black? If I were white, I'd say
no, and if this was an ideal world and if all affluent people looked
like me. But we are living in a world of lies and deception and when
the children's minds develop off of the deception that is being told and
taught, then the truth must be brought to the forefront. Also, I am not
white and the more affluent doesn't look like me.
People of color are more vulnerable and are more easily to believe
what is being told to them, especially when their history has been
erased from their minds, and it is constantly battered in their heads
through their educational systems, television, and movie theaters.
Well, the time has come for the truth to be told. And what is that
truth? That the people of the bible are people of color.
Before I can go forward, I need to go backwards into some history.
Lets look at the people of the bible, who had who.
Genesis 10:2-4, Japheth begot Gomer (*Galatians) (**Germany,
Crimea, Cambria, Celts), Magog (*Scythians) (**Georgia, Scythians),
Madai (*Medes), Javan (*Grecians), Tubal (*Iberes), Meshech (**Moscow),
and Tiras. Gomer begot Ashkenaz (*Rheginians) (**Germany, Saxons,
Scandavia), Riphath, and Togarmah. Javan begot Elishah, Tarshish,
Kittim (**Cyprus) (Abraham ibn Ezra said the Romans were descended from
Kittim), and Dodanim. (*denotes The Complete Works of Josephus.
**denotes The table of the Nations off the Web)
Genesis 10:6-18, Ham begot Cush (*Ethiopians), Mizraim (*Egypt),
Phut (*Libya), and Canaan. Cush begot Nimrod, Seba, Havilah, Sabtah,
Raamah, and Sabtechah. Raamah begot Sheba and Dedan. Mizraim begot
Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, and Caphtorim.
Canaan begot Sidon, Heth, Jebusites, Amorites, Girgasites, Hivites,
Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathite.
Genesis 10:22-29, Shem begot Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad (*Chaldeans),
Lud, and Aram. Aram begot Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. Arphaxad begot
Salah. Salah begot Eber. Eber begot Peleg (from here comes the family
of Abraham) and Joktan. Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth,
Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, and
And Noah and his wife created Japheth, Ham, and Shem.
After the dispersion of the people by God at the tower of Babel,
each went into their own region of the world. Japheth and his family
went into Europe. Shem and Ham stayed in the area, so to say.
Mizraim (Egypt) and some of his family went into a land now called
Africa, but it wasn't called Africa then. Cush (Ethiopia) had a very
large area which even went into what is now called Middle East.
Remember, Nimrod was a Cushite and the beginning of his kingdom was
Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
Around 1913BCE, there was a famine in the land. And due to the
famine, Abram (Abraham) and his wife Sarai journeyed to the land of
Egypt. But before he entered the land of Egypt he said to Sarai,
"Behold now, I know that you art a fair woman to look upon. And it will
come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they will say:
This is his wife; and they will kill me, but thee they will keep alive."
Now the incident came to pass, but Rabbi Shelomoh Yitschaki,
Solomon ben Isaac, also known as Rashi, said in his commentaries,
reference behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman, "Knowing that
you are beautiful, I realize that your beauty is now a source of danger,
particularly since the Egyptians are dark-skinned and ugly." Besides
this being a ridiculous comment, the point that I am trying to point out
is the fact that the Rabbi has stated that the Egyptians were people of
color. Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines black as, "Having a
dark skin . . . " and "a person belonging to a dark skinned race . .
" This may seem irrelevant now, but this quote by Rashi is going to
back fire on him. Stick with me. Also at least they have finally
admitted that the Egyptians were people of color.
Next, Joseph, one of the twelve sons of Jacob, from the twelve
tribes of Israel, was sold to some Ishmaelites by his brothers out of
anger. The Ishmaelites took Joseph into Egypt and sold him to the
Egyptians. Later a famine had struck the land of Egypt and Canaan and
according to the Bible all the lands and was very devastating. Jacob
instructed several of his sons to go into Egypt and buy food because
Egypt had enough to sell.
When the brothers of Joseph, the sons of
Jacob had entered the land of Egypt, they were told to see a particular
person. Not knowing oh the individual was they were going to see, when
they faced him, they didn't recognize him, but Joseph recognized them.
If Joseph is supposed to be a white person, and he was in the mist of
black people, don't you think his brothers would have recognized him
immediately. Why didn't his brothers recognize him immediately? Could
it have been due to him being black amongst black people and he blended
in? A white person definitely would have been able to be pointed out
if he was amongst black slaves during slavery time. Don't you think?
Next, while the Israelites were living in the land of Egypt,
Pharaoh had commanded for all the Israelite males to be exterminated.
Now during this time, a couple from the Israelite people had borne a
son, and they had hid him for three months. When they couldn't hide him
no longer, she put the child into a basket and placed it among the reeds
by the bank of the Nile. The daughter of Pharaoh, wanting to bathe in
the Nile, went to the banks and saw the basket among the reeds and when
she opened the basket she saw a baby in it. Being that the baby was
very young, she instructed a Hebrew family, coincidently the baby's
mother, to nurse the child until he was weaned. Once he was weaned, she
brought the boy to her father and asked if she could keep the child, and
her father said yes. Also, the baby was named Moses.
Remembering that the Egyptians were black, if Moses was white and
knowing that Pharaoh had issued a decree to kill all the Hebrew males,
wouldn't he have killed Moses immediately when she brought this
supposedly white child into her father's house? Also, if he was white,
do you think Pharaoh's daughter would have even let the child live when
she found him by the Nile? Obviously we must say no.
Finally, Moses lived amongst the Egyptians for years and one day
when he saw an Egyptian abusing a Hebrew, he came to the aide of the
Hebrew and killed the Egyptian. Knowing that the word would get out and
back to Pharaoh, he fled Egypt and went to the land of Midian. Upon
entering Midian he came to the aide of some women of the land and helped
them. They were very grateful and ran back and told their father that
an "Egyptian" saved them.
Again, if he was mistaking for an Egyptian, and knowing that the
Egyptians are supposedly dark-skinned and ugly, does this make Moses
dark-skinned and ugly too? This is where people need to watch what they
say. It may come back to haunt you.
What I have presented here, which is merely speculation. The only
proof that I have given where someone has said the Egyptians where black
was by the Rabbi. So let me notegive more facts for you to think about.
Herodotus (484? -425? BC) was one of the most widely traveled
people of his time. His writings show his interest in both history and
geography. Herodotus was born in Halicarnassus, a Greek colony in Asia
Minor. He was a frequent visitor to Athens, he was a close friend of
Sophocles. He also journeyed to the western shores of the Black Sea, to
southern Italy and Egypt, and to the Asian cities of Tyre, Babylon,
Ecbatana, Nineveh, and Susa, says the Compton's Interactive encyclopedia.
During his travels, Herodotus kept a journal of his activities.
The journal was later translated, and in one of his entries, he wrote
the following about the Egyptians or to be more exact the natives:
" ...it is certain that the natives of the country are black . . . ;
there can be no doubt that the Colchians are an Egyptians race . . . I
made this inquiries on the subject both in Colchis and in Egypt, and I
found that the Colchians had a more distinct recollection of the
Egyptians, than the Egyptians had of them . . . My own conjectures were
founded, first, on the fact that they are black-skinned and have woolly
hair . . . "
Now, what I have done here is give a positive identification of the
Egyptians. And by me doing this and showing that the Israelites always
got mistaken for them, prove that they both, the Egyptians and the
Israelites were black people.
You may still have your doubts and desire more evidence before you
will acknowledge that the Bibilical Israelites were a black people. So,
allow me to continue.
Solomon Grayzel, a white Jewish historian, wrote in his book, A
History of the Jews, in the ninth century CE (AD), a man appeared in
north Africa among the Hebrews there, his name was Eldad from the tribe
of Dan, he was a danite. They said he spoke a strange language and told
them a weird story. He said the members of his tribe had escaped Israel
after Sennacherib had conquered Israel, and other Hebrews from other
tribes also live in the land from where he came from. He told the
Hebrews in the northern part of Africa all the law that his people
follow, which was given to his tribe by tradition from Moses successor
Joshua ben Nun. The Hebrews of the northern part of Africa at first was
in question about his story, but threw further examine by the Gaon, he
assured the northern African Hebrews the story was legitimate.
I have mentioned this story because Mr Grayzel went on to say,
"Some modern scholars argue that Eldad was an Ethiopian Jew, a
descendant of the ancient colony which, in the days of Ezra, lived on
the southern border of Egypt . . . " If you know your history, and if
you know what color the Ethiopian Jews are, then you have already come
to the conclusion that Eldad the Danite, from the tribe of Dan, one of
the twelve tribes of Israel was a black man.
Another story that I want to tell you about is in a book entitled
"The Hope of Israel," by Menasseh ben Israel which was published 1652.
In it speaks of an incident that occurred with a traveler named Antonio
de Montezinos. It says upon Montezinos return from the Americas, it is
sufficient here to know that he has found the descendants of the lost
ten tribes. At this point, I am going to quote the letter from Menasseh
ben Israel to John Dury concerning what he said. The letter was dated
25 November 1649 and it reads, "Curiously enough, in the sixteenth
century one Antonio Montesino of Lima stated, according to the writings
of Luis Lopez, Bishop of Quito, that The Indians of the islands and
mainland of the Indies . . . are Hebrews descended from the Ten Lost
Tribes of Israel'. And he did say further in his book, "that they keepe
their true religion, as hoping to returne again into the Holy land in
People, if this isn't enough proof as to say what color the Hebrews
were, then you are truly in a state of denial.
Also, as for a pictorial concerning the children of Israel. In a
documentary on the Art & Entertainment channel, titled In Search of The
Ten Commandments, it showed an ancient hieroglyphic picture of the
Israelites while they were slaves in Egypt, and they were black. They
looked just like the Egyptians. So I can see why Moses was mistaken for
an Egyptian, and why Joseph wasn't recognized by his brothers.
Finally, I am going to list three passages from the bible
identifying the color of the Israelites. They are:
Lamentation 4:8, Their visage (face) is blacker than coal
Lamentation 5:10, Our skin was black like an oven . . .
And Job 30:30, My skin is black upon me . . .
In this document, I have given enough information proving that the
Hebrews are black people. But I say to you all, this isn't enough.
Teach your children the truth!
