(Racism, White Supremacy And Slavery--How
Can Man Love God And Hate His Brother?)
The Missing Link in Black History
an excerpt from "Who Told You That You Were Naked"
"At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked,
Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? He called a little child and had
him stand among them. And He said: I tell you the truth, unless you change and
become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven".--MATTHEW
Little children do not have problems with other little children. Little
children do not hate; they are not racists or sexists; they are not religious.
When they see other little children, they see only a play mate. Settlers in
the New World in the British Colony of Virginia--the indentured servants, were
all treated equally under the London Company Charter which provided for a governor
that answered only to the Company. The indentured servants were like little
children. They did not hate and they were not racists or sexists or religious.
The Africans arrived as indentured servants and worked beside white servants.
The two groups worked in the fields, spent their free time together, married
one another and had children.
Indentured servitude was accepted and practiced in England and it was very
easy to transplant the system to Jamestown. An indenture or contract would bind
a servant to work for a master for seven years without wages. The years of service
were considered payment for a servant's transportation; the servant was freed
upon completion of the agreed upon time in his contract. In addition to freedom,
a former servant was given money, clothing, tools and seeds with which to start
his life in the colonies as a free man; he would then be able to work for wages
and establish his own home. If the free servant saved enough money, he could
buy land and acquire servants of his own.
The London Company allowed the Planters (free servants) to elect representatives
to an assembly, which with the governor's council, was empowered to legislate
for the Colony. This assembly was called the House of Burgess and free males
over the age of seventeen elected to it two representatives from each of Virginia's
eleven towns. The legislative assembly required that all servants' contracts
be recorded and enforced. The Census made in 1624-25 and 1632 to 1661 identified
Africans as servants, not as slaves.
The growing wealth of the Colony caused it to be taken over by King James
I. The Anglican Church, which the King presided over, was sent to govern and
enforce laws in Colonial Virginia. The Anglican Church (a church-state) answered
only to the King. The Protestant Inquisition enforced obedience and controlled
society and personal morality; as the church, it taught Christianity to the
people. The Anglican Church (the Protestant Inquisition) not only was sent to
govern and enforce laws, it was sent to breed and acculturate slaves to be sold
in the Colony of Virginia. The business of breeding slaves to be sold was very
profitable and Virginia became acknowledged as a slave-breeding state. Christianity
reached its lowest point when man, for the love of money, attempted to recreate
man (the African) who was made in the image and likeness of God into a beast
of burden--an image that the Anglican Church wanted Africans to have--by using
the same methods and techniques that were used in breaking and breeding horses.
It was for greed--the love of money, that black Africans destroyed his brother's
family and sold them into slavery. It was for greed (for land and slaves--their
property) that Africans, Native-Americans, and mulatto slave holders fought
on the side of the Confederate forces. It was because of greed that European
women had been destroyed--tortured and burned alive by the Church (Inquisition)
that persuaded society that the woman was a witch, an evil Satanic agent responsible
for all the sins of the world. The white indentured servants from Europe who
came into Virginia had to choose Africans or Native Americans to be their wives;
this created an integrated mulatto family. When King James I sent the Anglican
Church (Inquisition) to govern and enforce laws in Colonial Virginia, they found
an integrated mulatto population.
The Church's Inquisition-like philosophy has always been "divide and
conquer" and it is the Church's philosophy today. It was for greed that
the House of Burgesses (the elected representatives from the integrated mulatto
population),sold out (betrayed)the mulatto population they represented by agreeing
with the State (Anglican Church) that the Africans knew farming and brought
higher prices at the auctions and that the African indentured servants should
work more years for a master than white indentured servants. Thus began the
separating of African indentured servants and the white indentured servants
which lead the African indentured servants into slavery. As repressive legislation
further restricted and systematically lowered the status and the activities
of African indentured servants, the rights and privileges of white indentured
servants were gradually increased, separating and setting them farther apart.
Meanwhile, the Anglican Church (church-state) in its religious function brainwashed
white European indentured servants to believe that they were different and superior
to the black African indentured servants by using Bible scriptures such as "cursed
When Noah awake from his drunken stupor and learned what had happened and
what Ham his younger son had done, he cursed Ham's descendants. "A curse
upon the Canaanites", he swore. "May they be the lowest of slaves
to the descendants of Shem and Japheth". Then he said, "God bless
Shem and may Canaan be his slave. God bless Japheth and let him share the prosperity
of Shem, and let Canaan be his slave."--GENESIS 9:24-27(LB)
The Anglican Church-State convinced the white European indentured servants
that black Africans (the black race; Negroes) were Ham's descendants and their
slaves; this was a lie. Ham was not the ancestor of the Negro as was once erroneously
supposed. The Anglican Church (church-state) did not tell European indentured
servants that St. Augustine, the celebrated Doctor of the Church, much celebrated
father of the church and Bishop of Hippo was a black man.
Virginia and Maryland passed laws which made Africans slaves for life. The
laws made it clear that if the mother was a slave, her child would also be a
slave. In 1682, the Assembly decreed that all non-white servants brought into
the country would be slaves. In 1705, white indentured servants' terms were
limited to five years and Africans, Native Americans, and mulattoes were no
longer allowed to purchase white servants. Also, the Anglican Church (church-state)
conditioned and brainwashed white indentured servants to "hate" Africans,
Native Americans and mulattoes and to keep the groups apart so they would not
work or spend their free time together and marry one another. Hatred (white
supremacy and racism) was created by the Inquisition (Anglican Church) and spread
throughout the British Empire and world through Christianity.
The Inquisition (Anglican Church) created a white society with the white
indentured servants that came to be slave-holders and gained control of the
House of Burgesses. The 300 year period of witch-hunting from the fifteenth
to the eighteenth century had almost wiped out Europe's female population. To
have a society, women and children are necessary.
The Virginia General Assembly Declaration of 1705 stated that all servants
imported and brought into the country who were not Christians in their native
country shall be accounted and be slaves. All Negro, mulatto and Indian slaves
within this Dominion shall be held to be real estate. If any slave resists his
master, correcting such slave and shall happen to be killed in such correction,
the master shall be free of all punishment as if such accident never happened.
The Inquisition (the Anglican Church) and the white slaveholder created
a caste system based on the color of one's skin--white was superior (highest)
and black was inferior (lowest). To have a white society they breed their slaves,
their real estate, to have white babies. "If you are white, you are all
right; yellow and brown, stick around; but if you are black, get back".
The slave masters impregnated their slaves and if the slave baby was white,
the slave master took the baby from its mother and raised the baby as his own
child. If the baby was yellow or brown, they brought the highest price at the
auctions. If the slave baby was black, it was sent to work in the fields. A
child taken from its black mother and raised as a white child never knew that
its mother was black.
In keeping with its philosophy "divide and conquer", the Inquisition
(Anglican Church) and the white slave-holder created a caste and class system
among the slaves, and the mulattoes, so that they would hate, be divided and
not trust one another. Today, the mulatto population hates, are divided, and
do not trust one another.
Who is white and who is black?
Paul said, "The God who made the world and everything in it is the
Lord of Heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And He
is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He himself gives
all men life and breath and everything else. From one man He made every nation
of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times
set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that
men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though He is
not far from each one of us. For in him we live more and have our being. As
some of your own poets have said, we are his offspring. Therefore since we are
God's offspring, we should not think that the Divine Being is like gold or silver
or stone--an image made by man's design and skill."--ACTS 17:24-27(NIV)
"Who are my mother and my brothers? And looking around on those
who sat about him, He said, Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does
the will of God is my brother and sister and mother".--MARK
"I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like
little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of God." Let us change
and become like little children, doing the will of God in this new age and this
new millennium: loving one and another, "...for God is love"--1 JOHN
4:8 (KJV) and we are sister and brother (mulattoes: a mixture of Native Americans,
Europeans and Africans)
