 Here are some reasons below why we as Asiatics in North America (African American/Black/Negro/Color People) should not use the word Black to identify us as a race.

 

THE WORD BLACK WILL NEVER DEFINE US

 

First we want to give you some definitions of why this word black should never

Be used to describe a race of people. Nor should this word ever be used and carried

around like a badge of honor.

 

Black means – Death, Darkness, Confusion; Devoid of light: Completely dark, with no light; Dismal, Destitute of light, Gloomy, Angry, Darkness, Threatening, Malignant, Soiled, Stained, Murky, Mean, Wicked, Immoral, Forbidding, Indicating disgrace; Depression, Sadness

A member of the so-called black race, A Negro, Evil, Negroid,

Filled with anger or hostility, Hopeless: So depressing as to end all hope, 

Dirty: Total darkness: Complete darkness    

Seriously bad or unfortunate: Causing or associated with severely bad conditions or Misfortune, Dishonorable: Extremely dishonorable and deserving the most serious criticism; or Associated with evil; The opposite of white, Having No Morals.

Incapable of reflecting light; Destitute of Moral Light or Goodness; Calamitous, Atrocious, Empty, Worthless 

Black peoples-- African American person: a member of a U.S. ethnic group descended from dark-skinned African peoples 

Blacky is also a term used and it was – A colloquial term for a Negro or person of the dark coloured races;

Blackamoor - (Black and Moor in the old sense of black man or Negro formerly written also blackmoor) a Negro; black man or woman.

In the older dictionary you will find the true meaning of all words.  In the newer dictionary the words were cleaned up and the meanings changed so that they would be politically correct as to not offend.  But realistically you can’t change the meaning of a word to suit a situation; but it was done. 

Europeans/whites told the truth about who we were in the dictionaries because they knew the so-called negro/black person back then was illiterate and could not read the truth when it stirred them in the face.

These older dictionaries will tell us who we are; the black man/negro is a Moor and the Europeans/whites knew what was taken away from our Ancestors.  We are the same Moors who ruled Spain for 800 years.  Read the history it was our ancestors that took Spain out of the dark ages and gave them light and culture and bath tubs. 

 

Our Ancestors were cut off from their families, stripped of their identity, their culture, their heritage and their religion.  And then they were forced to practice a foreign religion of the Europeans/whites which was Christianity.

Our people had rich production lives before slavery and they had a culture and a heritage.  They practiced the religion of our Ancient forefathers who were the founders, and that religion in its purest form is Islam.  This means our Ancestors practice a pure religion that did not have the cultural trappings of another people who try to put their face on Islam.  Our Ancient Ancestors practice Islam in its unaltered form from Allah.  Islam is the religion of Peace; total submission to the One and Only True Father God Allah.

We as a people are lost and needed to be reconnected back to our Father God Allah.  Just like with every other race or nation when in trouble Allah sends them a Prophet to help them find their way back to him.  They must be reconnected by to the source and find out who they really are.  Allah made tribes and nations so that they would know one another.

 

Allah heard the cries of our Ancestors and sent us a Prophet of our own race, who spoke the language of his people.  He was sent by Allah to bring us back into the fold of nations and give us back our National name that we had when first brought to these shores in the early part of the 17th century. Our name was taken away and Prophet Drew Ali was sent to free the enslaved minds of the so-called black/negro.  He was sent to uplift fallen humanity who had fallen away from their God and from knowing who they are.  We lost our National name and a name was put upon us.  And the name put upon our people was one that was totally negative and define our people as being inferior to the Europeans/whites.  This act was deliberate and it worked.  We are a people in mental slavery and lost; not knowing where we came from we certainly don’t know where we are going. 

We were sent a Prophet to the West and Americanized Prophet who brought back Race Pride, and our National name and our true Religion from our Ancient Forefathers.  Prophet Drew Ali said, “Come all ye Asiatics of America and hear the truth about who you are, you are not colored, black, negro, Ethiopian.  Come learn the truth about who you are.”  Come Afro/African American; come learn the truth about who you really are.

 

Getting back to the (black) word; Europeans/whites knew who the so-called black man of today was and it.  Think people, if our race, nationality and true religion wasn’t important then why was it taken away from our ancestors, hidden and written out of the history books?  All we have is his-story, not the truth; not the true history of the Moors.

The word black should be banned from our vocabulary and never used again.  There is no honor in the use of that word.  Black is not the name of a race; we are the only people on the face of this earth that are known by a derogatory color (black).

The sad thing about this is that we as a people are happy about not knowing who we really are and where we came from.  Our Ancestors had a life, a blessed life way before slavery.  It’s time for our people to find out who they really are.

I wrote a poem during the so-called black history month and it’s called,

 

“BLACK WILL NEVER DEFINE YOU”

 

 Black will never define you

Or tell who you really are

It’s like a disease that starts eating

And left us with many scars

Black is a name I never will use

When speaking of a people who are blessed

Black was a name put upon us

Means death and murkiness

Black means evil

Calamitous

Dark skinned

Soiled and dirty

It means worthless

Filled with shame

Black was a name put upon us

There is no honor using that name

Black means sorrow

A Negro

A lost soul

Empty

With out light

Black means Filled with shame

Void of happiness

To want to be called black

That’s insane

It means mournful

Gloomy

And sinister

The opposite of anything good

Black was a name put upon us

I hope this is understood

It’s the opposite of white

It means wickedness

Nothing good can from that name

It’s filled with dishonor laziness

Let’s send it back from whence it came

You can’t wear that name with honor

It’s a disgrace t want to be identified

It’s embarrassing and demeaning

It’s not a name to be worn with pride

Black is a color among many

Find it in any crayon box

Black is the name that they gave us

Like a clown

To be pointed at and mock

Black is the name that they gave us

We accepted it

And held our heads high

No other race has been named like us

We’re laughed at

And others know why

Our Ancestors were humiliated

And dehumanized

Stripped of everything they had

And forced to believe European lies

The slaveholders called themselves white

Think about it

It was a conditioning

Our people would not see the light

I don’t see this word as being a part of me

Black was never meant to identify

It enslaved the mind to never be free

Black is the name that they gave us

And still we embrace it with pride

It’s a word that I’ll never use again

Because it deludes to the European lie
