The Name Game


Essays by Ekowa©

"His-Story is the Lie agreed upon."

Napoleon Bonaparte


"A people now forgotten discovered, while others were yet barbarians, the elements of the arts and sciences. A race of men now rejected for their sable skin and frizzled hair founded, on the study of the laws of nature, those civil and religious systems which still govern the Universe."

Count C. F. Volney -Ruins of Empires.



From generations past the name in which we identify ourselves and the name of how others have described us have changed several hundreds if not thousands of times. 

But our people understood that; “A Name indicates your intrinsic [inherent, real, fundamental, natural, genuine and essential] value” and names were not arbitrarily given in the ancient world.

As a simple example, in my lifetime our people have gone from being called colored, Negro, Black and African-American.  I will not go into the many abhorrent names people have called us and we have called ourselves we hear those spouted everyday. In my home we have skipped the formality and disconnection to the motherland and we solely refer to ourselves as Africans.

When you think of the Black Panthers of the 60's and 70's that movement has become synonymous with the Black Revolutionary movement in America . Just as the Mau-Mau were the icon of the Revolution in Kenya and the ANC and Nelson Mandela in South Africa and the black panthers in India among the Dalits.

We Got Soul

Historically, when we thought of Rhythm and Blues, Jazz , Blues or Soul and Rap music it was exclusively African construct applied ‘solely’ to African people. When a person was referred to as having ‘Soul' or called another person 'Soul-Brother or Soul-Sister' it was the endearment from one African to another.  When food was said to be ‘soulful’ it usually consisted of foodstuffs that Africans prepared, yams rice and beans, fried ‘something’  and greens…ummmmm. We could go on but I’m gettin’ hungry.

Remember the day when Cornrows, plaits, naturals and braids were worn by black sisters and brothers as a sign of their acknowledgement and pride in being ‘Children of the Motherland’. Remember how appalled we were when white folks started calling them ‘Bo braids’ after Bo Derek?  There was a time when to hold a clinched fist high was a symbol of Black Power as John Carlos and Tommy Smith proved at the Mexico Olympics in the 60's at the time was revolutionary and dangerous.

Over time these icons of African-ness have been systematically co-opted and redefined by the European population.  The Black power fist is used in everything as a gesture of victory and power.

The term coined by Malcolm X ‘By any means Necessary’ is now a slogan of Nike and corporate conglomerates.  A smiling picture of Malcolm X's was chosen to grace the front of a United States Postal Stamp instead of the bold soul searching picture e was known for, that graced so many college dormitory and first time apartment walls, imploring us to THINK, SEE, UNDERSTAND and KNOW THYSELF!

Symbolism and Iconography

There is no more Black Soul music or Black R&B apart from the European experience.  They have co-opted the Temptations, as first witness by the movie the 'Big Chill' and replaced Lady Day with a poor substitute in Diana Krall, the new jazz icon.  Even Celine Dion had the nerve to try and out -soul Aretha!!! I said try 'cause 'Re-Re blew her out the water!  The melodic sounds of Wes Montgomery has been repackaged and swapped with the trifling riffs of Kenny G.  We are in the back of the bus and don’t know it.

Everyone f every culture wears cornrows, locks and braids even if they have to fake it with tons of hair spray and extensions.  Rap is known as the voice of a whole generation and not the hue and cry of the oppressed African children of the ghetto, as it was initially.  Rap was the tradition of the ancient source Griot - telling not only historical facts but making history palatable and the most recent 'rhapsodizing' of the Scatters of the 30's 40's and 50's.  

In essence everyone wants to be Blacker than the Black man , more African than the African, hipper than the innovator and inventor while hijacking  the standard of beauty of the original woman[ lip, hips and fingertips] after degrading the original model of beauty. They say emulation is the sincerest form of flattery…don’t believe the hype! It is stealing dressed up in a tuxedo. Just ask Little Richard when his songs were stolen and reworked [to please a white audience] by that no singing Pat Boone. Expression changes, language is added to, syncretized, then deleted and names are blended, expanded and hidden all in the feeble attempt to decentralize the African effect on the world and hide its roots.  We are divided and therefore conquered. We are absorbed in the dominate culture.  We are currently 60% of the world population cow-tow to 5% of those in power. 

Is the term Black even relevant?

Since this was true in the recent past, then it is also true 100, 200, 1000, 2000, 3000 years ago and what the Europeans referred to as an African is as diverse as what we are called today.  In my essays 'What's in a Name' and 'Translations' I touched on this interesting trend how they have used language as a tool of confusion and genocide. As we learn we grow and here is more compelling evidence of the cover-up using Code Names to describe our people and to separate them from the African Family.  

In the words of Howard Zinn;

'If we do not know History it is as if we were born yesterday.'  

What is a code? A collection of statutes and rules methodically arranged. 

The arranger has a use for the arrangement. They coded us and continue to do so and we fall into the arrangement that is of their design.  In this present age, we are calling ourselves mixed race, people of color, mixed people. Honestly, we are Mixed-Up and we need to Wake Up!

Using these coded terms, arranged to disconnect us from the root, we march head-long into the plan to first to Divide and Conquer then Erase and Replace

Using a scientific understanding as an example in this case, the first and second laws of thermodynamics:

'The first principle asserts that energy is conserved, i.e., energy can neither be created nor destroyed.  The second principle asserts that the overall distribution of energy tends to become more uniform, never less uniform.'  

We ask the question in relationship to Africans and the original name we called ourselves and the subsequent names that was used to refer to us. Then, as time progresses the term for us was standardized, now what is considered originally African is limited to certain body, facial and hair type and  residence in a limited and specific locale. 

We need to know that our energy circumvents the globe and flows outward to the mind and heart of the Creator of all Things and we spread a culture that uniformly directed those people who we encountered back to Africa and the African truth. 

We are the true energy that drives this planet. 

"Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an image of heaven or, to be more precise, that everything governed and moved in heaven came down to Egypt and was transferred there? If truth were told, our land is the temple of the whole world." Hermetica

Let us take a look at the Names we gave ourselves and the Names others have given us and maybe we can see how the divide and conquer rule of European-centered history really works. 


From the book Black in Antiquity by Snowden:

Maasai Men

Greek and Roman Descriptions of Ethiopians or Blacks generally:

Aethiops, melas, melanochoros, niger , ater, aquilus, exustus, furvus, fuscus, percotus. (p. 3)  

Biblical Aquilus:

By his diligence, I say, did Luke write these things, and more than these, and he placed them in the hand of Priscilla and Aquilus, his disciples; and they accompanied him up to the day of his death, just as Timothy and Erastus of Lystra and Menaus, the first disciples of the apostles, accompanied Paul. . . " ("The Teaching of the Apostles," A. Cleveland Coxe, ed., Fathers of the Third and Fourth Centuries, New York : The Christian Literature Company, p. 672) "

Homeric Aquilus:

“An Italian professor reads Latin like Italian, a Frenchman as French, and as Americans we find we can't understand their Latin at all. Can we erase our native sounds and read in an artificially contrived Latin, is it worth the effort, and can it actually work? Then about Vergil's biography and background, he is described as being swarthy or "aquilus", and his mother Polla Magia has a Carthaginian name, as does Mago the Carthaginian author on farming whom Vergil surely read before writing his Georgics.

If his ancestry came from a Carthaginian [they were black..Yes!] left over from the over-land invasions, could his obvious interest in Dido and Book IV have a personal value, making the North African part of the Aeneid the most vivid and finely constructed? These and more questions indicate that we have not reached the end of the possibilities for new approaches to Vergil, which will color our thinking about the Aeneid one way or another.”

Additional Greco-Roman ethnonyms of Blacks: Afer (African), Indus/Indi ( India ), Maurus (Moor) (p. 11)

Europe :

Euro-Rome had ten Afrikan (Black) Emperors. They were Macrinu, Firmus, Emilianus, Septimus Severus, Pescennius Niger , Aquilus Niger , Brutidius Niger , Q. Caecilus Niger , Novius Niger and a legal counselor of the imperial family name Niger , who accompanied the sister of Emperor Octavius Anthony, who had deserted her for Cleopatra VII of Egypt .

Publius Terrentius Afer (Known as “Terrence the Afrikan”) circa 185 B.C. to 159 B.C., is “the greatest of the Latin stylist” who wrote comedies, i.e. five act-structured plays that were later imitated by the European William Shakespeare, the world’s putative “greatest” playwright. Dr. Kwame Nantambu

More Roman Aquilus:

From 104 to 101 BCE slaves were masters of Sicily , with only the towns outside of their control. Lucullus led an attempt to suppress the revolt but this did not work. Only in 100 BCE did the consul Aquilus manage to seize Triocala and thus destroy the slave rebellion. Graham Stevenson

Greco-Roman toponyms of--national, regional, continental:

Libya : derived from ancient Egyptian word lebu, given to the people who inhabited the lands west of the Nile.

India : in the ancient mind, Africa and continental India were linked; Indians were often called the eastern Ethiopians.

Ethiopia : An early Greek name, meaning "sunburnt," for the African countries and regions to the south and west of Egypt. The term Ethiopia was interchangeable with Libya , India , Nubia , and Africa .

Nubia : Latin term, derived from Egyptian word nub meaning "gold" referring to the southern fifth of Egypt plus the northern fifth of the Sudan.

Africa or Afer: Latin term which came to be, and remains, the name for the entire continent.  

Hekau - The Egyptian power of words or WORDS of POWER.  Now most of us who have been brought up in a Judeo-Christian environment know nothing about Hekau and quick to call the Egyptians [Africans] pagans without understanding that 'Nothing rows in a vacuum' and there is no religion that was birthed by immaculate conception or without a daddy...So who was Israel's Daddy? We have a residue of the Egyptian ritual in our understanding that words are life and death. 

Here are some Biblical examples: 

'Life and death is in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.".' Proverbs 18:21

"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned."  Mt.12:36-37.

"It is the Spirit that makes alive; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

"Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nothing: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory." 1 Cor. 2: 4-7

No religion subsequent to the 'African model' grew up without understanding the African construct, which includes the current big three: Judaism, Christianity and Islam all owe their origins to the Egyptian [African] Mystery System. I will include Buddhism and the so-called religions or disciplines of the East, the Islands of the Seas, the Americas and finally the primitive religions of the European [See Druids]

How does all this relate to our name? 

A Name defines the intrinsic value of any being.

What does it mean to be intrinsically [fundamentally] Black? The answer is Melanin, power and royalty.

“A dark biological pigment (biochrome) found in skin, hair, feathers, scales, eyes, and some internal membranes; it is also found in the peritoneum of many animals (e.g., frogs), but its role there is not understood. Formed as an end product during metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine melanin's are conspicuous in dark skin moles of humans; in the black dermal melanocytes and the iris. “

n. dark or black pigment of body. melanin, melanic, adj. dark-skinned. melaniferous, adj. containing melanin. melanism, n. abnormal blackness of skin or plumage; extreme darkness of complexion and hair. melano, n. person or animal having unnaturally dark pigmentation. melanocomous, melanotrichous, adj. dark-haired. melanoderma, melanodermia, n. abnormal blackness of skin. melanin, adj. melanoma, n. tumor made up of dark- pigmented cells. melanopathy, melanosis, n. disease marked by deposition of melanin in tissues. melanous, a. with black hair and skin.  

Melanin in us makes us fundamentally African and I believe the original Africans need for Melanin was not just environmental but spiritual and cultural. We had melanin for a marker, not just for locale.  We are the first created people and the root and parent of the whole earth. What we posses is the building blocks of all societies, genetically, culturally intellectually, emotionally and scientifically. 

What were the familial terms we called ourselves and our land

Dinkiu -Pygmies

Habasan [ Hab-Ashan] - Ethiopia

Hapy - Nile River

Iabity-Hapy Languages - Afro-Asiatic languages

Iati - Adam

Kash [Kesh, Kush, Kish , Tish] - Nubia

Kana'anyym - Canaanites and Phoenicians

KM.T - Kemet or Ancient Egypt

Mewat - Eve

Patrusi - Africa , near East

Pwenet - Eritrea , Ethiopia

Ten-Nilam - India

Rasiu - Negroid people

As early as 233 BC (18th Dynasty), the Egyptians continuously represented the two groups of their own race in a manner that could not possibly be confused by anybody. Significantly the order in which the four races then known to the Egyptians (Kemmui, Nahasi, Namou, Tahmou) are consistently arranged in relation to the god, Horus, also bestowed on them their social hierarchy. Kem was the scared adjective for Black.

The Ancient Egyptians called themselves Kemmui, which meant black, written in their language Medu-Neter or hieroglyphics as a block of wood charred at the ends.

Nile Valley high culture is already complete and mature by 4,000 B.C. and remained an intact and powerful force for the next four millennia.  Over large swaths of that time, Egypt was the political overlord of most of the eastern half of the Mediterranean and even when not in political control, her cultural hegemony was paramount. She left her imprint everywhere, not only in material artifacts, but in customs, practices, beliefs, and rituals. It is not strange that we should find a pronounced Nilotic [ Nile ] influence on the northern Mediterranean nations of antiquity; it would be strange if we did not.

Allegorical and metaphorical names of Africans:

Melampodes ("black feet") is a common Classical name for the Egyptians; and these stories of how Melampus understood what birds...were saying are likely to be of African origin...' Graves .

Minos laid siege to Nisa, ruled by Nisus the Egyptian.

When the Danaans came to Greece they were called Black Feet or Melampodes, the term for Egyptian.

What of the Israelite tribe of Dan?

"Danaus...had fifty daughters called the Danaids (born of Egyptian and Ethiopian mothers)....he built a ship for himself and his daughters...and sailed toward Greece together, by way of Rhodes....[He] became so powerful a ruler that all the Pelasgians of Greece called themselves Danaans. -- Graves , citing Hyginus, Apollodorus, Herodotus, Strabo, Diodorus, Pausanias, and Plutarch, p. 201-2."

At Dodona ...the priestesses who deliver the oracles have a different version of the story: two black doves, they say flew away from Thebes in Egypt , and one of them alighted at Dodona , and the other in Libya .

As to the bird being black [at Dodona ], they merely signify by this that the woman was an Egyptian. --Herodotus, p. 152

...elsewhere [Aphrodite] was called Melaenis ("black one")...[and] Scotia ("dark one")... -- Graves , p. 72.  

I See Black People

Europa - the Black Princess and her name was applied to what is now Europe .

Paris was named after the neteru of Egypt Isis, wife and opposite of Osiris. 

Scotland – Land of the dark ones [Blacks].

Greece Gris meaning grey or mixed a mélange of black and white. Plato identified Athene, patroness of Athens , with the Libyan goddess Neith... -- Graves , citing Timaeus.

Herodotus called the Kushites "Ethiopians" and referred to their capital city of Meroë . [Herodotus, Histories, 139-140.]

Gypsies - Meaning out of Egypt

Herodotus was aware of Egyptian antiquity and learning and as the noted scholar; Dr. John Henrike Clark said: 'He could distinguish Black people from White people.  Herodotus specifically mentioned geometry and land measurement, solar calendar, 12-part year, and mummification.

The mask of Dan  

The Danites:

The fifty sons of Aegyptus were described as black....The Danaids described themselves as "black and smitten by the sun"....To King Pelasgus they have the appearance of Libyans, or inhabitants of the Nile . --Snowden, p. 157.  

"Samson, a Nazarite of the tribe of Dan, judged Israel during the period of Philistine domination.  At the feast celebrating his marriage to a Philistine woman, Samson proposed a riddle to the Philistines: "Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness." Judges 14:14  On the seventh day of the feast, the importunate bride extracted from Samson the interpretation of the riddle and related its meaning to her people, viz., that the carcass of a young lion which Samson had killed with his bare hands had attracted a swarm of bees who produced honey therein.  Samson paid the wager by slaying thirty Philistines -- after which his wife was taken from him.  Angered by their treachery, Samson avenged himself by slaughtering many more Philistines and eventually the Philistine lords."

The Lion, The Bee and The Honey all refer back to Egyptian/African Rule.

The Lion:

This symbol represents the horizon from which the sun emerged and disappeared. The horizon thus embodied the idea of both sunrise and sunset. It is similar to the two peaks of the Djew or mountain symbol with solar disk in the center. Both the beginning and the end of each day was guarded by Aker, a double lion god. In the New Kingdom, Harmakhet ("Horus in the Horizon") became the god of the rising and setting sun. He was pictured as a falcon, or as a sphinx with the body of a lion. The Great Sphinx of Giza is an example of "Horus in the Horizon".


"As the daughter of the sun god, Ra, Sekhmet is typically portrayed as a lion-headed goddess wearing the magnificent solar disk and uraeus (cobra) headdress. She is one of the goddesses invoked as the "Eye of Ra' with the power to breathe fire upon his enemies."

"The Lion of the South:

"Apedemek the Lion was the one of the most important gods of ancient Kush. A warrior god, he symbolized the regality, strength and the courage of the African Lion. The lion was also viewed as the emissary of the sun; a totem symbolizing light, truth, regeneration, and fertility.

Apedemek might have been a special kushitic aspect of the ancient kushitic progenitor God Amun, the hidden one, the eternal God, the father of all the Gods and men. The Kushites sometimes called Amun the Lion of the South. Similarly, Apedemek the lion godman, was also known as the Lion of the South, Strong of Arm."

The Bee: 

Bees are often considered a symbol of the Goddess or Divine Feminine because they are ruled by queens. See the prophet and Judge Deborah. The bee is also a symbol for wisdom. A well known cosmological myth from the ancient Egyptian city of Heliopolis -- Greek for City of the Sun, but known as Annu or Iunu in Egyptian. A lesser known tradition, and one that the priests of Heliopolis themselves are said to have taught as part of their allegorical mysteries, states that the goddess Neith was the first deity that emerged from the Waters of the Nun, making her the foremost of the Egyptian Gods. The Temple of Neith in Sau is traditionally known as the House of the Bee -- or "Hoot-Bit" in Egyptian. The bee was even an African totem character. As the heraldic symbol of Christ, bees represented the "sweetness" of His forgiveness and the "sting" of His justice. The Egyptian pharaohs used bees as their royal emblem for thousands of years, with the bee symbol appearing on the tomb of Ramses III. the Egyptian god Ra, whose falling tears supposedly became the first honey bees. 

The Honey or Honey Comb:

Honey has associations that go far beyond its use as a food. In language and literature, religion and folk belief, honey is frequently a symbol or talisman for sweetness of every kind. 


Two of these [kabeiric] vases depict Odysseus and a Negro Circe... Snowden, p. 161. Note: Circe - is where we get the English word circle and church.

"They also told me that the Egyptians first brought into use the names of the twelve gods, which the Greeks took over from them. Herodotus, Book 2.

Carthaginians - Herodotus also says the Carthaginians circumnavigated Africa.

Phoenicians - Cyrenes - Creteans (Khepra) - Sabeans -Manu - Nok - Chou Dynasties

Formorians -Black colonies established in Britain, including Black giants who migrate from North Africa .

What have we learned from this brief exercise? That there are a myriad of ways to say African! 

Names used by other Nations that refer to Africans. 

Swarthy, Schwartz, Sudan, Indigo, Moore, Morris, Mauritania, Morocco, Ashan, Zhou, Zhang, Khmer, Li and many others. 

Sudras - Sanskrit word for Black or the Black Ones.

The Adyrmachidae lived along the coast. They lived like Egyptians but dressed like Libyans.

The Cyrenians were further west on the coast (JJ: Cyrene was a Greek colony). The Asbystae lived inland from Cyrenians. They used four-horse chariots like the Cyrenians.

The Auschisae and the enclosed tribe of Bacales.

The Nasamones (Nassamonians) were a larger tribe than the others. They left their cattle on the coast in the summer and went inland for the date harvest at Augila. The Nassamonians reported contact with black-haired pygmies on an west-east river far to the south.

Habashan or Ashan - ashen or black with smoke also known as Ethopians

The Garamantes lived further inland behind the Nasamones in the land of wild beasts. The Garamantes "avoided all men" and lived without any means of defense (i.e.: nothing that Herodotus recognized as a "modern" army).

The Macae wore Mohawk haircuts and carried ostrich skin shields in war.

The Gindanes women wear one leather ankle band for each lover they have had.

The Lotophagi live exclusively on lotus fruit.

Machlyes was where Jason's Argonaut crew nearly sank.

The Auses lived across the River Triton from the Machlyes.

Black Melanesians and Polynesians sailed over Pacific Ocean, occupying islands and reaching parts of South America .

Original Hawaiians

King Kaamahamaha

An African by any other name is still in the family. A quote I read on Global African Presence:

"A mango on the Table is no different than a mango on the Tree. "

"Herodotus believed that the Colchians (southern Black Sea area) were introduced to Asia by Egyptian expansion as far as Thrace and Scythia because "they have black skins and curly hair (not that that amounts to much, as other nations have the same)." [Herodotus, Histories, 167.] They also practiced circumcision, unlike Mediterranean peoples of the time."

The medieval scholars believed there were originally nine races of Mankind? Let's see who they are!

African, American Indian, Asian, Australian, European, Indian, Melanesian, Micronesian, and Polynesian.

Sir Francis Bacon and the Black Emperor

Out of these there is only one that is universally [by its own definition] designated as white and that is the European, but within its ranks there are the Eastern Europeans who are considered the 'blacks' of Europe

Let us look at some of the original peoples of the earth: Each of the eight remaining groups are African and so were the original Europeans.  Now, the list has dwindled down to ONE people - The African!


Early Chinese             Israel                     Egypt                Hawaii 's            Cen. Africa    

  Australian              Briton          Nubia/India          Original Hawaiian         Americas


                                     Melanesia                        India

Black Asian Buddha’s

Do not be put off or derailed by names, terms, titles or national designation - just research the origins.  There is always a clue pointing to Africans ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’

AFRICA- Gerald Massey derived from the Kamy word ‘Aaru,’ and constructed as ‘Af-ru-ka’, the name of ‘Africa’ is instead known to have been derived from the A’amu word ‘Afr’, related to the Kana’aniy word ‘Ephrah’, meaning ‘fruitfulness’.

ASIA may be derived from the ancient Assyrian word "Asu," meaning " to rise," as in the sun, and by extension, the east. The classical Greeks thought of everything to the east of Greece as Asia
. Europeans have demarcated Asia similarly ever since, hence the Orient from the Latin for "the direction of the rising sun." The City of On or Anu was considered the center and site of the Sun. the Sun or Aten was considered the greatest attribute of the Creator of all Things.

ASU: Asa/Ás/Æsir. Name for the Gods as individuals or as a collective. Related to the Sanskrit word "asu", life-force, life-spirit. The Sun being the representation of the source of all life.

BLACK is the meaning of Kam/Kem or Khem -the name which the ancient Egyptians called themselves. From this word we get "Chemistry," the study of the building blocks of Life.

Some say the TERM Caucasian -originated from Africans, the TERM which is derived from the Ethiopian words "Caer Cush Aur." (Bryant's Ancient Mythology Vol. III, p158 [1807]).The original term for Cau-casians were African. The name [term] was later co-opted by the current inhabitants that have designated themselves as genetically White.

Terminology: language, expression, jargon, lingo. 

"We now know that modern humanity originated in Africa , and that all modern humans can ultimately trace their ancestral roots back to the African continent. Herodotus, the European father of history, regarded Colchis, a land located along the western slope of the Caucasus Mountains near the Black Sea , as an African colony. He not only pointed to the Colchians' black skin and woolly hair, but also to their oral traditions, language, methods of weaving, and practice of circumcision.

"Saint Jerome , writing during the fourth century, called Colchis the "Second Ethiopia." Two hundred years later, Sophronius, patriarch of Jerusalem , described an "Ethiopian" presence in the same region. Even today, in the same district about which Herodotus wrote, lives a numerically minute black-skinned, woolly-haired community."  

ETHIOPIA- Aethiops, Kush represented Biblically as Africans - Hickchock's Bible defines it as 'Blackness'.


Chiang Dynasty: King Tang or Ta, the earliest documented rulership of China was the Shang Dynasty (or Chiang) c. 1500-1000 B.C., which is credited with bringing together the elements of China
's earliest known civilization. The Shang were given the name Nakhi. Na meaning Black, Khi meaning Man which is the Blackman. In the Shogun tradition of Japan the highest compliment for a fighter is to be called a Blackman. Zhong-Gwo is the indigenous word for China .

"These sun signs may refer to the ten clans that formed the basis of the Shang people. (Allan 1981, p.293) Allan (1981) has discussed the possibility that the myth of the Mulberry Tree from which ten suns rose probably relate to the rise of ten founding Shang clans by ten suns(/sons) which are identified as "black birds". (Allan 1981, p.294)"

Many of the Shang spoke a Dravidian language. The first Shang king was Xuan Wang, 'Black King' (Xuan means black). He was also called the Xuan Di ,"Black Emperor".The founder of the Shang Dynasty was called Xuan Niao "Black Bird"; another Shang king was called Xuan Mu "Black Oxen".

European again:

EUROPE named after the Black Phoenician princess, Europa who was kidnapped by Black Zeus. Zeus is the Greek knock-off of the Egyptian Ammon or Amun. Europa is also moon of Jupiter. Jupiter - Amun/Amen of Egypt [see Europa].

The Latin word " India " is from the Greek word Indus (or Indos) means Black. Ten-Nilam is the original name for India .

London : The City was called Londinium and was in existence in the Roman period. 'The History of the Kings of Britain ' in about 1136. In this book he traces the origins of London (and Britain ) back to its foundation by Brutus, great grandson of Aeneas - the Trojan.

Troy : The Battle of Troy is listed in African Antiquity as a part of African History. In 1193 B.C., Prince Paris of Troy stole the beautiful Greek woman, Helen away from her husband, Menelaus, the king of ( Ethiopia ) Sparta , setting the two nations at war with each other, as the Greeks began a bloody siege of Troy using their entire armada, led by Achilles that lasted over a decade.

Memnon, the African King of Ethiopian and brother to Emathion, King of Ethiopia arrives from Susa with 200,000 African troops to defend Troy and is killed by Achilles. Tell me why would Memnon risk 200,000 African men fighting for white folks? He wouldn’t.

Memnon the African

Check out the iconographic images in this picture.  Memnon is obviously a Black man. Egyptian icons abounds in the drawing.  The obelisk, Pyramid, Light from the East, and the naked Memnon. 

Was Helen his Sista’? More than likely. Let’s look at the story again and use some coon sense. Remember Melas, Mene, Mem, Melen and all the abbreviations of that name means BLACK. The City and the name Paris is in honor of Isis/Auset the African Queen.

Let us get this story straight: 

Paris [ Egypt ] stole Helen [the daughter of an Ethiopian] away from her husband Menelaus [The King of the Ethiopia in Sparta ], and then Memnon [the King of Ethiopia in Ethiopia ] sent 200,000 of his army to fight in the battle of Troy

Wow, that sure doesn't sound like the Helen of Troy from the movie starring Brad Pitt does it? Was Achilles black? His heals was sure ashy!  

How could Menelaus of Sparta and Memnon both be the Kings of Ethiopia? Africa was called Ethiopia and Africa is a continent that covered not only what we know in modern geography, but it extended to India, Mesopotamia, Asia, the Islands of the Sea and the Americas with settlements in Europe. Take's more than one ruler to rule such a vast empire. They may have been in a cooperative or were vying to control it all. It may have been a family thing.  It always took an Ethiopian/African Queen to make any King!

The name Helen means:

Possibly from either Greek ‘ελενη (helene) "torch" or "corposant", or Greek σεληνη (selene) "moon". In Greek mythology Helen was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, whose kidnapping by Paris was the cause of the Trojan War.

Zeus was a the Greek knockoff of: Egyptian Amun of Amen and possible the Serapis which was a emulation of Osiris.

Leda relates back to the swan and egg relating back to the Cosmic egg birthed by Ra who created Isis and Osiris.

The Legendary super-civilization of "Mu" (Lemuria) was Black.

"The Empire of the Sun; reportedly, the name for a large continent colonized over 70,000 years B.C. that supported over 60 million inhabitants in the Pacific Ocean. It was believed to have consisted of ten distinct tribes, or peoples all under one government. Around 10,000 B.C. nearly the entire continent was claimed to have fallen into the Pacific Ocean; Mu's 1st colony in North America was reportedly established at Mexico over 50, 000 yrs. B.C. Associated spellings/words: Lemuria; Kuiland."

Queen Muu

Reportedly, M is a variation of the Greek letter Mu and the Semitic Mem, which is also the Phoenician word for water. Originally the M's legs were uneven; perhaps resembling waves, which many scholars believe
was a pictograph of water as seen below.

Paris is named after the Egyptian goddess, Isis [Auset]. From an early temple of Isis (Pari Isidos). At the site of this temple is the Cathedral of Notre Dame; The Grande Dame referred to Isis [Auset].


Aesop the African -Aesop was an African philosopher (Aesop from the Greek word Aithiops meaning Ethiopian and African), he lived and traveled through Africa and Greece circa 620 to 560 BC. Many great philosophers and writers have studied Aesop's works, and there are hundreds of fables, stories, and proverbs attributed to and based on Aesop's teachings.
