Black, African, Moorish and Nubian history (and the decline of Red Ice Creations)

INTRO:

Red Ice Creations used to be a format for alternative speakers like Michael Tsarion, David Wilcock and Graham HAncock ould do talks on all sorts of political subjects, historical subjects and spiritual subjects that were not getting viewed on the mainstream media. Once upon a time it was my primay source of alternative information. Recently however it has been a platform for people talking about White Pride (fair enough), which unfortunately sometimes spills over to White Power (ummm, you already have that, like, everywhere) and sometimes sounds quite simply like thinly veiled racism.

http://www.redicecreations.com/

One of the comments on one of their youtubes recently attributed all of humanity’s achievements to white people, and claimed that black people and Africa in particular would have nothing without white people. I don’t have a problem with white people or even white pride but I have a problem with historical innaccuracies and/or racism so that comment inspired me to share a few facts about Black, African, Moorish and Nubian history you can see below…

I’m aware that you cannot judge a youtube video or a youtube uploader by their comments, that would be unfair. I am not racist, I am a black Englishman of Caribbean descent and most of my friends are white.  (It’s just information to be absorbed and transcended by universal consciousness – there is no independent nature to race.)

“Nubian pyramids are pyramids that were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite kingdoms. Prior to the Kushites building these pyramids, there had been no pyramid construction in Egypt and the Nile Valley for more than 500 years.The area of the Nile valley known as Nubia, which lies within present day Sudan, was home to three Kushite kingdoms during antiquity. The first had its capital at Kerma (2600–1520 BC). The second was centered on Napata (1000–300 BC). Finally, the last kingdom was centered on Meroë (300 BC–AD 300).”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nubian_pyramids

“The civilization that built the Sphinx, raised the pyramids and built the world’s first library also produced the world’s first physician, created geometry and astronomy and were among the first to explore the nature of our existence. And they passed their knowledge along to the Greeks. Modern people, in turn, have benefited greatly from this early education.

It’s well-documented that classical Greek thinkers traveled to what we now call Egypt to expand their knowledge. When the Greek scholars Thales, Hippocrates, Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato and others traveled to Kemet, they studied at the temple-universities Waset and Ipet Isut. Here, the Greeks were inducted into a wide curriculum that encompassed both the esoteric as well as the practical.”

http://www.philipcoppens.com/egyptgreece.html

“Both Plato and Pythagoras, identified as icons of Greek philosophy, stated that they and other great Greek philosophers had studied and learned that knowledge in Egypt. Many had studied many years at Egyptian schools, to return to Greece as the “first philosophers”.

Thales of Milete

Iamblichus wrote that Thales of Milete had to make it clear to Pythagoras that the latter had to go to Memphis, in Egypt, to study. Thales added that it were the Egyptian priests that were a veritable source of knowledge and information. Thales stated this at a time when he himself was Greece’s most famous and applauded philosopher, even though it would be his protégé Pythagoras who is currently best remembered as the “first philosopher”.
After Socrates’ death, Plato left for Egypt, where he studied for a period of 13 years. His mentor was Sechnuphis, a priest of Heliopolis (modern Cairo and thus near the Great Pyramid).”

So that’s all evidence, I don’t know if it’s proof, it’s just data. Data comes from our infinite consciousness and goes back to infinite consciousness but it’s evidence that Africa had kingdoms and libraries and information that is missing from the mainstream history. But it’s just data, just a story. I only share it to counter the other story – that blacks had nothing until the whites gave it to them. Just not objectively true.

EPILOGUE: for those of you who may think I’m anti-white…
“Typical African immigrant?”
Actually my parents were Caribbean immigrants in the 50s and 60s when they were actually advertising jobs to the Caribbean because they didn’t want to drive they’re own taxis and buses. So they were completely justified in immigrating – they were invited to work here (a little bit of history most racists forget / are ignorant about.) And I was born in London so I was born with a British passport. So… you’re wrong too. Nobody in my family has been in Africa for 400 years, not since they were enslaved and taken to the Caribbean, but let’s not dwell on that shall we, I’m just telling you the accurate history of why I was born with a British passport but I wouldn’t want you to think I was spreading the blame. (And if you can read between thlines you’ll see why parts of Africa are under-developed, because we gave the Greeks the wisdom to build civilisation and then that information was used to build a technological empire and that empire used technology (guns and ships) to steal land and resources. African mines still make European families rich.)

I don’t hate white people, I am simply a long term Red Ice listener who has been listening to Red Ice since at least 2011 and has noticed a lot less objective alternate history and and objective alternative news and alot more fear and bigotry in the past two years to the point that I no longer listen regularly anymore and I do actually genuinely wonder sometimes if the real Henrik isn’t somewhere under Guantanamo Bay or something.
I simply see where the line gets blurred between white pride and simple racism.
There used to be a time when I assumed most of the listeners of Red Ice were well educated enough to know the global reasons for local conflicts and I wouldn’t have to educate people about the World Trade Organisation, globalisation and the military industrial complex in order to explain why Africa suffers so much conflict to decide who gets to mine diamonds for foreign nations to sell, or who gets to mine gold for foreign nations to sell etc. But the ignorance of their current listeners indicates the quality of their journalism. In my humble opinion it’s declining.

But that’s just my humble opinion, it’s just data to be subsumed or absorbed and transcended by open intelligence or universal consciousness – there is no independent nature to race and unless the real Henrik has been co-opted, bought, or brainwashed I would think he’d be too well-informed and open minded to have made his mind up about all members of any race. But maybe I’m assuming too much empathy?
It’s just data, points of view.

Worship on the Nile

Somewhere between asleep and awake,

Egyptian Goddesses guide me to my fate,
Guide me to worship at the altar of the arched cave,

Guide me to sip the sacred waters of their lake.
Climbing the mountains with water for her babies,

Singing in harmony with the Goddesses Priestesses,
Carved in my heart these priestesses leave messages,

Only devotion to my heart’s path will save me.

Racism, The EU and the New World Order… The Racist Agenda of the New World Order / Illuminati / Banking Elite and Resistance to the EU without Racism…

Speculative data. This is an experiment and I honestly believe that I’ll get open and honest discussion but if it results in angrily swapping opinions as fact I’ll delete it and never do anything like it again.

Now anyone who is a facebook friend knows I like to research alternative information from alternative media. Now I have to state for the skeptics that I do not assume that alternative media is right, I just know for sure that I do not trust mainstream media. Most of you know that I have an interest in Eastern philosophy and New Age spirituality. These are the things I choose to share. Some of you may be aware that I am interested in conspiracy facts, by which I mean documented factual history that has been admitted like MK Ultra and the Tuskegee experiments and also conspiracy theories which are speculative. I do not share the theories much anymore, they have a negative effect on my credibility as well as just spread negativity and unnecesarilly pollute the collective consciousness with negative unknowns. I am also an amateur theologian, I have an interest in the true roots of Christianity, the Essenes and the true history and teachings of Christ. I do not share that much either because Christianity is seen as ‘uncool’ and most of you don’t care, it’s only an interest because I was raised a Christian and I have one foot still in that belief system for reasons too complex to explain, suffice to say I the teachings of Christ and the actions of the Church often couldn’t be further from each other.

Okay, that’s the playing field. I have two points that have been in my head for years and I can’t keep them to myself anymore.

Point number 1. One of the threads that conspiracy theories and facts will pull up is the idea that the powerful elite, the banking families, the New World Order and/or the Illuminati want a one world Government with little or no civil liberties (meaning no freedoms, no freedom of speech, freedom of movement, no freedom to say what you want or go where you want without permission). Some recent events might support that theory, ID cards that you pay for everything with scared lots of people who realised they can switch those cards off. But the thing about the One World Government thing is that it might be a reason not to be o eager to become one big European country. It may be that the only opposition to that aspect of the New World Order in this country are the xenophobic racists in UKIP and the EDL. I know there are people who are not racist who do not want to see such centralisation of power but I do not know many organisations with that perception. Discuss (politely if you can).

I don’t share that perception much because it’s a perception that is shared mainly by racists, which is ironic when you see what point number 2 will be.

I dunno, that is probably just pointless description of undefinable perceptions of things that I can’t stop thinking about that could all be sorted out if we all did less thinking or more finding inner peace and helping each other perhaps? Maybe I’m just shaking a hornets nest. I have to express myself, when I’m enlightened enough to express nothing but “everything is perfect, don’t worry about the future” I’ll let you know.

Point number 2. I really don’t understand the racist agenda. I mean really. Most of the motivations of the powerful elite, the banking families, the New World Order and/or the Illuminati I can understand even if I disagree with them – financial greed seems to be the motivation. Whether it’s oil money, or war money, or banking money, or selling the NHS money you can see clearly why and how. But there were particular incidents, like Martin Luther King, an entirely peaceful man, being on the FBIs most wanted list, or even more sinister, The Tuskegee experiments – in which strictly black pilots were experimented on with syphillis (seriously, look it up) – which seem to have no motivation other than a fear or hatred of black people. There is no monetary gain from killing black people. Now I could list a bunch of bad things that happened to black people due to the powers that be but there’s not much point. I could be accused of playing the race card in which case I may be forced to post a bunch of facts, figures, and videos I usually keep to myself (it’s true, despite the amount I share on facebook there is still a whole load that I don’t share.) But I really don’t get the racist agenda. Is it fear, or hatred, or something more esoteric than that? Maybe it’s simple, mummy was racist, daddy was racist, that’s what they learned and that’s what they’ll teach their children? Just doing the best with what they have learned? Alot of black activists say it’s because if the races mixed eventually the white gene will be wiped out. Fear of a brown planet? (For the record I am similarly confused by what appears to be the supposed ruling classes obsession with child abuse and the complete lack of financial motive there, is it ritualistic or are they just emotionally and psychologically damaged bullies of the the most extreme sort? A subject for a whole other essay and a whole other day perhaps.)

Discuss (politely if you can).

I don’t know what I am expecting. Do I just need to vent or do I really believe someone can finish a sentence that starts “the new world order hate black people because – “? Maybe I just needed to write that to realise how ridiculous ever understanding other human beings can be beyond realising that we’re all doing our best with what we know.

Personal aside, Public Enemy, a rap group I have loved since I was 4, and one of the most legendary of all time had an album called Fear of a Black Planet. They also had a song called Fight the Power. Years later, maybe a year or two ago, they lent that song to a campaign that subverted the original meaning, or transmuted the original meaning. “No, BE the Power.”

Hm… just cos I can’t stop thinking about all this does that mean I should burden other people. Ignorance is bliss, maybe I should just leave people to their bliss? Just stop thinking for short moments many times, I tend to get more of a birds eye view perception with each moment of relaxed, still, emptiness. But it’s not easy for a philosophy graduate who loves to write, sometimes the words are fighting their way out of me.

I do not know if sharing the above was a power or a weakness. Maybe it would have been more powerful to feel the anxious energy of unasked questions and rest with it. Maybe it all exists just so I could repeat those three words.

Be the power.

Exhibit A – JAY-Z and JAY ELECTRONICA, ‘We Made It’ Freestyle.

Jay-Electronica-Jay-Z_320 (1)

Jay-Z and Jay Electronica drop 5% knowledge and black history on the theme “we made it from slavery.” Jay Electronica is known for having deep, poetic lyrics but Jay-Z is known more for being a gangster lyricist, ex-crack dealing, board-room walking businessman married to Beyonce. Most people don’t know he had his period of 5% teachings prior to his fame. Also interesting to note that the Masons seem to have stolen alot of knowledge from Egypt which was according to some black culture anyway (investigate the Kingdom of Kush and the Moorish Kingdom for the hidden history of black kings), so maybe there’s another source for the pyramid imagery beyond the Illuminati accusations. I’ve never been a big fan of Jay-Z, I like Can I Live and Broklyn’s Finest but my favourite Jay-Z tracks either have a Nas verse, or a Biggie verse on it. Now there’s one with a Jay Electronica verse on it cos they both kill this track AND drop knowledge. Respect due.

The devil, the haters, the bloggers, the papers, the labels, they labeled me
But they can’t relate to our struggle, my nigga, we came up from slavery

Exhibit B – AB-SOUL and JOEY BADA$$, ‘Enter The Void’

joey absoul

Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ have been talking about chakras in rhymes for a couple of years (not as long as I have though http://www.kpkevthepoet.bandcamp.com ) but here they have a call for spiritual awareness in the chorus that is so unashamedly ironically gangsta but aware, only these two could get away with saying…

Keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your mouth shut and keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your all seeing eye open)

 

 

Full Lyrics for both (via http://www.rapgenius.com – check em out.)

Jay Z – We Made It Freestyle Lyrics

[Verse 1: Jay Electronica]

The devil, the haters, the bloggers, the papers, the labels, they labeled me
But they can’t relate to our struggle, my nigga, we came up from slavery

Apologies go out to all of my fans cause they waited so patiently
This one is for all of the lost and forgotten black angels that prayed for me
A milli, a milli, niggas love me cause I’m ill
The greatest story ever told, niggas in the field
From Solomon to Sambo to Django, it’s fact

I’m the Farrakhan of rap and I get it from the wheel
The son of WD, who hung around in the D
Who ran around in the three
The trap gods raised me
Face all on the Sphinx
Story all in the wall of the pyramids
Niggas know the Black God saved me
You can blow the nose off, that won’t change it
Obamacare won’t heal all that anguish
We came a long way from the bottom of the boat
All praise to the Mahdi, we found our language
Gold necklace, middle finger erected
God tribe of Shabazz stylin’ on the record
Lost sons of Muhammad, we wildin’ in the wreckage
Asha du illah illaha is the message

All these niggas, I got to fight one
All these devils, I got to strike some
All these rebels just waitin’ on the war cry
Mama said: “son, you got to strike drum”

Roc Nation, celebration
Motivation, elevation

Nigga we made it from slaves on a slaveship
Live from the cotton fields, straight to the spaceship


[Interlude: Kenny Powers]
Kinda makes me wonder why the hell so many people are tryna tell me to slow down. Seems like motherfuckers should be shuttin’ the hell up and enjoyin’ the show


[Verse 2: Jay Z]
Hop off the slave ship
Popped off my chain and took it to Jacob, I got it gold plated
Walked in that bitch like “Nigga we made it!”

I own my own masters, you know I ain’t missin’ no royalty statements
I can’t be rated (God, God), damn Hov stunt on them haters
Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk
Silly me rappin’ ’bout shit that I really bought

While these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot
And a bunch of other silly shit that they ain’t got

I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o
Stuntin’ on stage, after 12 Years A Slave
This Ace of Spades look like an Oscar

Black tux, look like a mobster
Don’t make me RRRRAA yah, nigga watch your tone
I come to court with black boxers on
Y’all hella jealous of my melatonin
I could black out at any given moment

I’m God, G is the seventh letter made
So when my arms & feet shackled I still get paid
All praises due
I’m ready to chase the Yakub back into caves

These are the last days, but do I seem fazed?
Showed up to the last supper in some brand new J’s
I’m the true and livin’, book of Hov
New religion, 8th wonder of the world, alien, superstition

You’re blind, baby
Blind to the fact of who you are maybe

My bloodline’s crazy
Kings and queens and Michael Jordan rings

I go stupido, sucio
The flow is filthy, y’all can’t kill me

I’ve been inoculated from the snakes and the fakes
The corny handshakes, cock sucker we made it

 

Joey BADA$$ – Enter the Void Lyrics

Produced By: Lee Bannon
[Verse 1: Ab-Soul]
Tell my momma I’m a shaman rhymin’
Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only idols
No, Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only rivals
I’m the Messiah of rap, my catalog’s the Bible
To the new generation of lost souls
Student loans, iPhones, reality TV shows

It shows a host of wise, but blind drones
Post Babylonia, so I’m told
It could be bologna, so I don’t hold it to be fact
Just tryna put the pieces together, puzzled by this madness
If that dollar crashes, niggas gone panic
What we gonna do? How we gon eat? Don’t even know how to
Grow fruit,
 detached from your roots, nigga, me too
I’m doing drugs, fornicating and eating fast food

But I know I got three eyes cause I’m looking past you

[Hook: Joey Bada$$ & Ab-Soul]
Enter the void
This for my hundred dollar billers to destroy
Spreading word of knowledge to through decoys
People realize that it’s time to deploy
Stay on point – open your third eye, boy
(And keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your mouth shut and keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your all seeing eye open)


[Verse 2: Joey Bada$$]
Had to escape nest, told Moms I’m Apex
And plus I lay checks, I bust in the latex
So it’s nothing stopping the kid if you get where I come from

Busting conundrums on nuns and condoms
Don’t want no problems, It’s the number one solver
Can’t see me with these sentences, get your bars up
I’m close to the pen, I depend on this shit

Ain’t tryna be dead bent, I’ll ascend off this spliff
You can’t pretend with this shit
See, I know what’s real and what isn’t

Ain’t shit obscured with my vision, plus the herbs that I’m hittin’
Allow me to observe what is hidden

Could have been a cherry-pickin’ nigga, if I ain’t make jams and bury niggas
Used to be the sweetest ’til life handed me the lemons, nigga
Now everyday I see the sour patches
The flower of life devoured into ashes

[Hook]
