FOR MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED YEARS NOW, White historians, archaeologists, and scholars removed Black people from Egypt, took Egypt out of Africa, and made Africa disappear from world history as a cultural force. These same scholars taught that Egypt is in the Near East, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Fertile Crescent.
They have never informed the world that Egypt is and always has been on the Continent of Africa. Have you asked, “Why the geographical term the Middle East?” The term Middle East-when examined in cultural, anthropological, and cultural terms, makes little sense. The Middle East is a political term. The fact is, most people cannot find the geographical location of the Middle East on the map. If news organizations did not have the option to say the Middle East, they would have to say “in and around the continent of Africa.”
Aside from its spiritual impact on Christians worldwide, the Bible is also a historical book. The Bible does not mention the Middle East, but that is an aside. Think how convenient it is to say “the Middle East” and ignore the FACT the Bible takes place in and around Africa; which also means the HOLY LAND is located in and around Africa; and for Christians, Jesus Christ walked on this earth in and around the Continent of Africa. Of course, Jesus was Black, but that is also another story.
White publishers have controlled everything written and taught about Africa and often published books stating that the Ancient Egyptians were White. White Republicants are also having a field day suppressing the truth about history and religion. Yet, no one, except Black people, complained about the revisionist history of the world, Africa, and those of African descent. And now, since Black people finally began publishing their works, and started using the internet to tell OUR story, suddenly everyone is interested in “setting Black people straight.”
But in the words of the great Dr. John Henri Clarke, “Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it.”
