“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.”

Beyoncé channels Yoruba Goddess Oshun.

beyonce%20grammys%202017%20performance

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:

“Blackness, as symbolized by the Black Dot, is the seed of humanity, the archetype of humanity, the black hidden doorway of historical unity with one’s ancestors. Webster’s dictionary defines seed as “the source, origin or beginning of anything; the part of a flowering plant that contains the embryo and will develop into a new plant; if sown, and fertilized and developed into ovule (new seeds).” Archetype is defined as the original model from which all other things of the same kind are made. Thus, archetype and seed are synonymous, both referring to the origin, the basic model of humanity upon which the race is patterned. Archetype means seed and is one of the ancient African names for seed. Archetype is composed of two main words arche and type. Type is defined as a person, thing or event that represents or symbolizes another especially another that is to come; the general form, structure, plan, style characterizing or distinguishing member of a class or group. Arch is defined as main, chief, principle; a curved structure used as support over an open space as in a doorway.”

“Certainly a racist or sexist person who is by definition both egocentric and ethnocentric, crazily attempting to conquer nature, at war with the universe will be overwhelmed by the infinite blackness of outer space and inner space. These people would rather destroy the world than find the Black Dot, hidden doorway that allows one to become one with nature, in rhythm with the universe, by using the accumulated wisdom a being of harmony with one’s ancestors contained within the body/mind/soul/spirit. Thus, reborn black people carry upon their shoulders the salvation of humanity, the revitalization of a human family that is lost, unable to find the hidden doorway to a spiritual harmonic unity with nature. The Black Dot is the hidden doorway of life which again is the doorway through which a reborn now dead/asleep people must pass.”
