“Constantine I (“The Great”), the Roman emperor who ruled 306-337 A.D., built Constantinople and made Christian worship lawful int he beginnings of the white supremacy system, had the following words placed on the cross, ‘In Hoc Signo, Vinces’ (meaning, ‘In this sign you will conquer’). Indeed, by controlling Black (non-white) male genitals, which the cross symbolizes, whites have conquered Blacks and the entire non-white majority. Currently, the majority membership of Christian churches is non-white, and all are held in control under the sign of the cross. The authority is maintained by whites, under white supremacy, white purity and white survival.”

“This discussion of the cross as a symbol of the Black male genitalia, in the contact of the white supremacy system/culture, would not be complete without noting that some of the most outspoken and aggressive white male and female members of the white supremacy system refer to themselves as the Ku Klux Klan. Since the termination of formal enslavement of Blacks, the Klan openly has espoused white genetic purity and survival via the castration, lynching and killing of Black men. The historic symbol for this group in the white supremacy culture is ‘the cross’ and, more specifically, the burning cross. After Black men were lynched and castrated, they often were burned, thereby reinforcing the interpretation that the cross symbolically is tied to the Black male’s genitalia and that the burning cross is the burning Black male and his genitals. When the Black male genitalia with the dominant Black genes are burned, cut off or otherwise destroyed, white genetic survival is assured.”

“The Pyramid Texts are a collection of ancient Egyptian religious texts from the time of the Old Kingdom, mostly inscriptions on the walls of tombs in pyramids. They depict the Egyptian view of the afterlife, and the ascent into the sky of the divine Pharaoh after death. They were written upwards of five thousand years ago; thus, they are some of the oldest known writings in the world. The Pyramid Texts are also the oldest collection of religious spells known to us from ancient Egypt. This collection forms the basis of much of the later religious theology and literature of ancient Egypt. The passages were eventually separated and categorized, as well as illustrated and eventually evolved into the Book of the Dead, or more properly, The Book of the Coming forth by Day. The oldest of these text come from that Pyramid of Wenis, or more popularly these days, Unas at Saqqara.”

Wow! The ancient Egyptian’s Book of the Coming Forth By Day and By Night (The Book of the Dead) is where the Torah and Bible got a lot of their stories from. I am in shock because I visited Saqqara and saw this pyramid, not knowing that it contained such an important part of religious history.

“There is this nation called Ta-Seti and this nation is further up south on the [Nile] river, in an area called Nubia and that is called the oldest monarchy in the world. [T]hey excavated the tombs of these kings in Nubia and these kings were said to be tall, black-skinned people. The goddess Isis and her child were already in place at the beginning of dynastic Kemet [modern-day Egypt] in 3,100 B.C. The dynastic [period of] Kemet begins after the primary religion of Kemet had already been created. So when you go to Ta-Seti for example, there is the god Horus, this child that’s being held by the virgin mother [Isis] is already recorded in Ta-Seti, south of Kemet and it’s much older than Kemet. So the religion is in place, astronomy is in place, writing (the heiroglyphics or Medu Neter) is in place — all of those things are already in place. So the culture is in place before the political organization of Kemet as a nation.”

Beyoncé channels Yoruba Goddess Oshun.


I loved Bey’s performance at the GRAMMYs on Sunday. I loved it even more because one of the two songs performed, was co-written by my good friend Ingrid Burley!

Some people are saying that Bey’s look was inspired by the Yoruba goddess Oshun. The Yoruba people are “descendants from variety of West African communities” who are “united by geography, history, religion and most importantly language.” The main countries where the Yoruba people live are Nigeria, Togo and Benin. In their religion, Oshun is the “goddess of water, fertility, motherhood, and the passing of the generations.” This deity is also responsible for blessing women with twins. As you [may] know, Bey is pregnant with twins. For more information on the Yoruba, click here.

I’ve always loved Bey, but I love her even more for continuing to use her platform to help [re]awaken the psyche of Africans, especially those living in the United States of America.

More pics from her performance are below:

new books to add to my collection.


I’ve read earlier works from each author, so I’m excited to start reading these books!

“Today’s reborn black, mental masters can focus the mind by embracing their historical blackness, developing a deep knowledge of one’s black ancestry and thereby becoming fluent in the translation of ancient images that appear in today’s world. As a result, dreams and visions of the great but seemingly impossible, will be brought into reality rather than ignored, just talked about, or partially developed. No longer will one submit to an ‘I can’t do attitude’ but one of ‘I will do,’ ‘I will make this life perfectly beautiful and I won’t stop until it is that way.’ ‘I will be my true Self.'”
