I give honor to Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a communal ancestor. I recall pushing my way past hoards of adults on the streets of Detroit when Dr. King came to march, and sat on the curb for what seemed like hours just to see his face. I listened to his speech on TV and I wept as he expressed something so spiritual and profound, most didn’t understand. He stood on national television and delivered a message of spiritual revelation. I heard a call to bring hope to the masses of Americans, all Americans, that they had the strength to do right, to see a better future for themselves and their children without strife, fear, or hatred. It was a very powerful speech that spoke to the hearts of many around the world, and Dr. King is the epitome of a great orator and spiritual leader.
I also imagine that many who heard the speech at that time were quite confused. How could white children and black children come together when everybody knows, "negroes are different." And if you ask what’s different you might be greeted with, "they just aren’t like us." The problem has not been those who kidnapped and terrorized civilized men, women and children into submission, or those who lynched black men, women, and children for sport; or even those who continue to discriminate in the institutions and streets of America. The problem was and still is the refusal to acknowledge the true history and world contributions of Black African peoples. That they have a history at all will be a surprise to many, including some Black Africans.
The fact that people of Black African ascent have created many of the things we use every day, or some process that changed the fabric of industry; is not even taught in our schools outside of “Black History Month.” What's even more funny is that when you get to college, there's an entire field of study, a whole integrated discipline centered around one Black African culture - the "Egyptians." The fact that Black African peoples built the pyramids, the oldest and last standing of the 8 Great Wonders of the World; that Black African Nations existed before 4000BC, with institutions of higher learning, community and national order, and wealth; and that the information disseminated out of Greece was stolen from the “Mystery Schools” by Alexander the Great, and again before Napoleon Bonaparte tried to destroy it, has been unilaterally ignored.
It is time to relinquish the “blankey” of lies and deceptions that the Holy Roman Empire cloaked over the great mysteries stolen from Africa, that have been incorporated into the very fabric of the church and society as we know it. It is time to relinquish the need to fain disdain for everything Black and understand the underlying spiritual process taking place. We all came from one source, many moved away to the North, East, and West; and some stayed. We had the confidence to branch out around our known world, because we knew that we would always come back together to share and increase knowledge of ourselves and our home, Earth. It is no mystery that those who stayed (were stable) developed civilization quicker, and proceeded to follow their family to the known ends of the earth to assist in the civilization (to be at peace) process.
With the burgeoning scourge of racism running rampant around the world, and even a “Black President of the United States of America;” the dream is further from fulfillment than ever in the history of the world. What would Dr. King say today to inspire the same hope, half a century later…let’s look at what else he said 50 years ago.
“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.”
“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles [(drones)] and misguided men.”
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” And finally,
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” from BrainyQuotes.com
As we are all intellectually and spiritually hog-tied by the lies that have been told, we come face to face with our ultimate desecration – the blending of man and machine - the eradication of human spirit in the guise of immortality. It’s nice to remember the dream, but dreams are not a fairytale or myth. The dream was a message for all human beings, a road map of what it will take to return to true civilization (peace).
