Africans in the Diaspora

Judaism 101-B


On that day the Lord will make his power more glorious by recovering the remnant of his people, those who are still left, from Assyria and Egypt, from Pathors, from Cush for Elam, form Shinar, Hamath and the Islands of the Sea.  Isaiah 11:11. 

Assyria - '...from that land he [Nimrod] migrated to Asshur and built Nineveh , Rehoboth, Ir [ Ur ], Calah , and Resin, a great city between Nineveh and Calah .' Genesis 10:11-12.


Egypt - The Sons of Kham were Cush , Mizraim [ Egypt ] Put, and Canaan . Genesis 10:6-7

Mentuhotep grandfather of Pharaoh Tut.

Cush  - 'The sons of Kham were ' Cush , Mizraim, Put and Canaan .  the sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, Sabtecha...Cush was the father of Nimrod who began to show himself as a mighty man on Earth; and as a mighty hunter before the Lord., as the saying goes: 'Like Nimrod a mighty Hunter before the Lord.' Genesis 10:7-9.

        Historical Comments

Some comments although having racist overtones still show the simple observations of those who witness our people in antiquity.

“Not only were Ancient Egyptians not Arabs, they were not related (linguistically, culturally, phenotypically or religiously) to any of the western Asiatic peoples. Their roots were in Africa . They traced their origins (Papyrus of Henefu) to the Mountains of the Moon which is at the source of the White Nile in Uganda . Their legends always referred to the land south of them as Ta-Meri (land of the ancestors/fathers).”

All ancient travelers to Egypt , who bothered to describe the local inhabitants, described them, without exception, as having black or dark skin and wooly hair. Here are a few quotes from ancient Greeks and Romans:

1.) Danaos (describing the Aegyptiads): 'I can see the crew with their black limbs and white tunics.' (Aeschylus, _The Suppliants_, vv. 719- 20, 745)  


2.) "Aegyptos conquered the country of the black-footed ones and called it Egypt after himself" (Apollodorus, Book II, paras 3 and 4)

3.) Lycinus (describing an Egyptian): 'this boy is not merely black; he has thick lips and his legs are too thin...his hair worn in a plait shows that he is not a freeman.' (Lucian, _Navigations_, paras 2-3)

4.) "Those who are too black are cowards, like for instance, the Egyptians and Ethiopians.  But those who are excessively white are also cowards as we can see from the example of women, the complexion of courage is between the two." (?) (Aristotle, _Physiognomy, 6


Elam - 'The sons of Shem: Elam , Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram . [Note: The children of Shem and Kham over lapped by intermarriage. ]

'The Elamites were black-skinned, wooly -haired people as the colorful glazed artwork on the royal place walls of the ancient Persian ( Syria , Iran and Iraq - which was Israel ) city of Susa shows. There fore Abraham being from the Ethiopian city of Ur   of Chaldea and was the founding father of the Israelite nation, was a Black man. ‘Archeological studies show that the earliest inhabitants of Meso-potamia were the so-called Negro branch of humanity.'  

The Nimrodian Kings:

A second group of people who proved to be a formidable force was the people of the Sealand, a kingdom to the extreme south of Babylonia along the Persian Gulf . Little is known about these people as well, a list of the names of their Kings is all that has been discovered, but no native sources. We do know that it was a powerful nation that continually challenged Hammurapi's successors, and for a period of time controlled Nippur in the center of the plain. Because of their location in the south they were strongly Sumerian in character. The Kassites eventually conquered the people of the Sealand.


Shinar - 'His [Nimrod's] Kingdom in the beginning consisted of Babel [ Babylon ] Erech, Accad, all of thin in the land of Shinar .' Genesis 10:10.

'To the traditions and traces here enumerated must be added the biblical tradition which is delivered to us very simply and plainly in that precious document, the TOLDOTH BENI NOAH or BOOK OF THE GENERATIONS OF THE SONS OF NOAH. The sons of Ham, we are told, were Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan … and Cush begat Nimrod … and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel , and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar .

Babylon :

“Here a primitive [Not derived from something or someone else; primary or basic.] Babylon kingdom is assigned to a people distinctly said to have been Cushite by blood and to have stood in close connection with Mizraim of the people of Egypt , Phut or those of Central Africa and Canaan, or those of Palestine . It is the simplest and best interpretation of this passage to understand it as asserting that the four races, Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites, were ethnically connected being all descended from Ham; and further, that the primitive people of Babylon were a subdivision of one of these races, namely, of the Cushites or Ethiopians, connected in some degree with the Canaanites, Egyptians and Libyans, but more closely with the people that dwelt upon the Upper Nile" (Ancient Monarchies, Vol. I, Chap. 3).'   J.GJackson - Author and Historian.

Hamath -'Canaan was the father of Sidon , who was the eldest son, and Heth, the Jebusites, the Ammroites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinities, the Arvadites, the Zemarites and the Hamathites. Gen. 10:15-18.

 'Hamath was a city on the Orontes, in Syria .' At the time there was no Arabic Syrians they were all of African origin.

 Have we not taken to us horns (Hamath)--that is, acquired power, so as to conquer our neighbors (2Ki 14:25).      Horns are the Hebrew symbol of power, being the instrument of strength in many animals (Ps 75:10).

Medieval 'horned' Moses

Horned Zulu [male and female symbol up and down]

 From the entering in of Hamath-the point of entrance for an invading army (as Assyria) into Israel from the north; specified here, as Hamath had been just before subjugated by Jeroboam II (Amos 6:2). Do not glory in your recently acquired city, for it shall be the starting-point for the foe to afflict you. How sad the contrast to the feast of Solomon attended by a congregation from this same Hamath, the most northern boundary of Israel, to the Nile, the river of Egypt, the most southern boundary!

Note: the symbol for Nimrod was a horn or horns meaning authority. Moses was drawn similarly, see above.

Here the people of Babylon are climbing a rock to view 3 stars symbolizing the Belt of Orion.


          Nimrod and his Followers

Islands of the Sea - ' ...the sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras...the sons of Gomer: Ashenaz. Riphath....From these the people of the coasts and the islands separated into their own countries, each with their own language, family by family, nation by nation.'

Note: pictures of the peoples from the Islands of the Sea so that may disintergrate the myth of the 3 sons of Noah being Black, White and Asian.  If there was Noah he would have had three African sons.

She is a pure African!

Here is a statue of her Father

King Kahmahameha his name means: 'One set apart'

The first Hawaiians

The Hawaiian Islands may have been one of the last stops of the sea-faring Africans that traveled by ship across the Great Oceans [Atlantic to the Pacific] at each stop peoples populated the Ilands of the Sea, and eventually came to the Continent we now call America.

Recently because of the terrible Tsunami in the India Ocean we see that the peoples that inhabited those Islands of the Sea are Africa .  

The Americans

The Olmecs

Populated the Americas 600-1000 years before Inca, Maya and Aztecs.  There are legends of the Black 'Gods', in leopard and lion skins carrying' gold-tipped spears traveling by ship to trade with the children of the pre-Columbian peoples.  

"...Van Sertima, who is also a visiting professor at Princeton University, said that Columbus wrote that the native Americans he had encountered spoke of "black-skinned people" who traded in gold-tipped spears, and there are numerous eyewitness accounts by other European explorers that also indicate the existence of Africans in ancient America.

Van Sertima said that, despite the weight of scientific evidence, critics still maintain that if there were indeed Africans in America before Columbus, "they must have been brought there by someone else," a belief he termed racist and irrational." From his book 'They came before Columbus"


Mayans with Black Priest in Leopard Skin similar to the Sem Priests of Egypt.

Could it be the sons of King Kamahameha or the Priests from Western or Eastern Africa ?


Don't let your eyes be fooled into believing the Lie! 

Read, Study and Compare….the Truth is Hidden in plain sight!
