The African Moors sparked the European Renaissance! Ruling Spain, southern France, much of Scotland and North Africa during the Middle ages for 700 years, the Black African Moors gave Europe one of its finest civilizations. The word Moor is from the Greek word mauros, meaning scorched. In the introduction of The Story of the Moors in Spain by Stanley Lane-Poole, John Jackson writes: "Eurocentric historians argue that Europe gave civilization to Africa, which is a complete inversion of the truth. The first civilized Europeans were the Greeks, who were chiefly civilized by the Africans of the Nile Valley. The Greeks transmitted this culture to the Romans, who finally lost it, bringing on a dark age of five hundred years. Civilization was restored to Europe when another group of Africans, the Moors, brought this dark age to an end. During the Golden Age of Islam, the Moorish Empire... was the most advanced state in the world... Cordova was the most wonderful city of the tenth century; the streets were well-paved, with raised sidewalks for pedestrians... Public baths numbered in the hundreds... at a time when cleanliness in Christian Europe was regarded a sin... Moorish monarchs dwelt in splendid palaces, while the crowned heads of England, France, and Germany lived in big barns, lacking both windows and chimneys, with only a hole in the roof for the emission of smoke."

The Moors had an insatiable lust for knowledge, and acquired it from East and West, translating into Arabic all they could find, even ransacking monasteries for rare books. One king had a private library of 600,000 books! In Moorish Spain education was available to the most humble, while in Christian Europe 99% of the populace were illiterate, including kings. The incredible city of Cordova had 800 public schools! The Moors made great advances in mathematics, physics, astronomy, medicine, botany, chemistry. The Moors also introduced the first shooting mechanisms or rifles known as firesticks! – which revolutionized European military science, ultimately causing their downfall when their enemies used gunpowder to drive them back into Africa. Their contributions to European civilization is vast – with no credit given to them. For more details, Ivan Van Sertima, ed: The Golden Age of the Moors, and Samuel Scott: The History of the Moorish Empire in Europe.

The white Founding Fathers built America on Black Egypt's knowledge.

As revealed in Anthony Browder's fascinating From the Browder File, the Founding Fathers sought to recreate in America the same energies which guided the Africans of the Nile Valley by using African science, architecture and symbols (with no credit to them) as shown:

* The Found Fathers and all the U.S. presidents were Masons (except Lincoln & Kennedy). Masons and other secret orders such as the Rosicrucians & Illuminati are patterned after the Sacred Mystery Schools (universities) of ancient Egypt. The word 'Mason' means 'child of the sun' and is derived from the African terms Sons & Daughters of Light (or Children of the Sun). The sun symbolizes enlightenment, hence these metaphors mean 'enlightened people.' The Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution are Masonic documents, written in the Masonic code and have different meaning to members of the Masonic order.

* Look on the back of the dollar bill and see for yourself how the Founding Fathers composed the Great Seal of America with African symbols: The Eye of Horus/God, pyramid, six-pointed star (made up of 13 stars), and the eagle – their imitation of Egypt's sacred sun Falcon, a symbol for Horus. Stan Deyo's provocative Cosmic Conspiracy provides more insights.

* The Washington monument, a symbol of America, is an African obelisk! The obelisk was the symbol of the very Black Egyptian god, Osiris who represented the regenerative powers of God and was worshiped as the impregnating force of the universe. The obelisk later became part of the worship of the Egyptian Sun God, "Ra," from which we get the words "ra, radiation." The obelisk is also found at the Vatican in St. Peter's square and in every major city in the world. It is the origin of church steeples!

* Egyptian Design: The Lincoln Memorial is patterned after an Egyptian temple honoring the pharaoh, Ramsese II. Meridian Hill Park (aka Malcolm X Park) was designed to align Washington D.C. to the same meridian (pathway to the sun) which passes through Egypt. So-called European architecture (like the Capitol, Parthenon, cathedrals) is copied from African architecture! (mosques, obelisks, temples)

* A Black scientist designed the city. The layout and design of Washington D.C. was accomplished by America's first Black man of science, Benjamin Banneker – astronomer and mathematician.

All races were born from the Black race. Science reports that everyone alive today descended from an African woman who lived 200,000, years ago!

Based on the evidence of recent findings, modern (white) science has 'officially' declared that ALL of present humanity came from one race... the Black race – the oldest race. Throughout the world prominent magazines have done front page articles on "the most incredible find of all times: Scientists have unearthed the ancient bones of a Black African [pygmy] woman who is indisputably the mother of all humanity!" They nicknamed her Eve"... our common ancestor – a woman who lived 200,000 years ago and left resilient genes that are carried by all of mankind" reports the best-selling issue ever of Newsweek magazine (1/11/88) which depicts a Black Adam and Eve on its front cover headlining it The Search for Adam and Eve. Science magazine (9/11/87) states that overwhelming evidence shows that "Africa was the cradle of modern humans... The story the molecular biology seems to be telling is that modern humans evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago." National Geographic (Oc. 88) reports of new evidence " of an African origin for modern humans."

Are whites the albino offspring of Black Africans?

White skin is a form of albinism. It appears that whites have "come into being" through a number of ways: In The Isis Papers p.123, Dr. Frances cress Welsing states "whites are undoubtedly a genetic mutant albino population... from the original Black (hue-man) beings." The story of 'Snowflake' dramatically illustrates how it is possible for whites to come into being from blacks: Born of coal black parents, this albino gorilla named "Snowflake" has platinum blond hair, white (pink) skin, and blue eyes! (National Geographic: Mar, 67, Oct. 70). Similarly in Panama, particularly among the San Blas Indians are albino natives that also have blond hair and blue eyes! They are often indistinguishable from blond Northern Europeans! In the Bible, Edomites are whites that descended from an albino named Essau who was born ruddy (red) and hairy. (Gen. 25:25) The Bible refers to white skin as leprosy (Num. 12:10-12, Lev. 13) and reports that a race of people (Gahazites) were born white due to being cursed! (II Kings 5:27) Bible scholars credit Japheth (a son of Noah) as fathering a (Black) people who settled in the north, ultimately becoming the Caucasian race. Similarly, other scholars theorize that Africans who migrated to Europe and were caught in the Ice Age, gradually lightened until their genes mutated to adapt to the scant sunlight, thus producing a race of whites.

Were whites "made" by Yacub through selective breeding?

Paul Gurthrie's astounding Making of the Whiteman, assembles startling historical evidence which verifies much of Elijah Muhammad's controversial teachings on the origin of white people. In Message to the Black Man in America, according to Elijah muhammad, founder of the Nation of Islam, white people were created from Africans about 6000 years ago by Yacub, a Black god-like scientist. Using a selective breeding process called "grafting," Yacub created whites as a "race of devils" to rule earth for a limited period. (see page 28) Interestingly, the ancient Egyptians recorded the Tamahu, which means created white people. Egyptian writings also refer to whites as Typhonians or People of Seth, both meaning "the devils." After these "white devils" were first released into the Black community of the Near East 6000 years ago, they caused severe strife, thus the Africans rounded them up, stripped them of everything and exiled them to the caves and hills of the Caucasus Mountains. This explains the sudden appearance of white people in this region. To prevent their escaping Africans installed a series of guarded walls blocking all exits along that area from one sea to the other! – thus "roping" them off (hence the word Europe). These walls have been witnessed and recorded by many European writers, including Pliny. Thus, totally cut off from civilization, the whites degenerated into uncivilized, nomadic savages. They remained this way for 2000 years until 'Allah mercifully sent an Egyptian priest named Musa or Moses to civilize them.' This explains the otherwise unknown reason why suddenly about 2000 B.C., vast hordes of these white barbarians left the Caucasus region and stormed all the (Black) centers of civilizations throughout Mesopotamia, the Near East, Africa and India, destroying and usurping them. Thus, the whiteman's arrival signalled destruction for all these civilizations and the beginning of the whiteman's rise to power.

Why do whites seek to hide their origins?

Dr. Cress Welsing theorizes that whites (as the albino offspring of Black Africans) migrated or were chased northward from Africa into Europe. She states: "Historically, the white race has sought to hide its genetic origins in Africa amongst Blacks, just as it has sought to deny the origins of the white civilization, from the culture of Black in Africa, seeking instead to proclaim an origin amongst the Greeks. Historically, whites also have sought to degrade Africa and everything Black. By so doing, whites can avoid confronting the true meaning of skin whiteness as a mutation and genetic deficiency state from the Black norm – the 'hue-man' norm'... Deep within the unconscious psyche of the white collective is an awareness; of there origin amongst Blacks, that Blacks were their parents and that they (whites) were the defective offsprings of Blacks."

Your brain and body can't function without Black Melanin!

Few people know what Melanin, the pigment that colors the skin and hair, is found in almost every organ of the body and is necessary in order for the brain and nerves to operate, the eyes to see, and the human body to reproduce! At the core of your brain is found the "locus coeruleus," a structure that is BLACK because it contains large amounts of (neuro) Melanin which is essential for it to operate! In fact, all the most crucial brain structures are heavily melanized! Melanin in the brain increases from the lower primates and reaches its peak in the BLACK HUMAN.

"All humans possess this Black internal brain evidence of their common Black African Origin. The All Black neuro-melanin nerve tract of the brain is profound proof that the human race is a Black race, with many variations of Black, from Black-Black to White-Black, all internally rooted in a vast sea of Brain Blackness." Dr. Richard King

* Melanin is the chemical key to life itself!

* It is the major organizing molecule for living systems!

* It's found everywhere! – in animals, plants (that's why raisins are brown), soil, oceans, clouds even stars and comets!

* It is essentially linked to the DNA of the genes!

* It shows the potential to reproduce itself!

Black Melanin is necessary in order for humans to reproduce!

Melanin is present at the inception of life: a Melanin sheath covers both the sperm and the egg! In the human embryo, the melanocytes (skin pigment cells), brain and nerve cells all originate from the same place; the neural crest. Melanocytes resemble nerve cells and are essential for conveying energy. When Melanin is missing or insufficient in the ectoderm of the early embryo (blastula), this causes the mother to lose her baby; in the case of whites, a defective baby is produced.

Black Melanin is the super absorber of all forms of energy. It has "black hole" properties. It can convert light to sound and back again! It stores, transforms and conducts energy!

The color of Black is the perfect absorber of light and all energy frequencies, giving Black Melanin these properties! Thus scientists describe Melanin as acting like a "black hole." Melanin can rearrange its chemical structure to absorb ALL wave-lengths of energy (sunlight, X-rays, music, radar) and can transmute and store this energy for later use! In The Isis Papers, Dr. Cress Welsing writes that Melanin gives us the ability to use our bodies as direct connections with the God Force, the source of all Energy -like plugging a cord into a wall socket. It also gives our hair antennae-like ability. (see page 2).

How does Melanin cause racial differences?

The science of Genetics shows that Blacks can produce all races but it is impossible for a brown, yellow or white race to produce a black race. A Japanese scientist showed that inside melanocytes (pigment cells) are tiny packets called melanosomes that contain melanin. The four stages in the maturing of these melanosomes counts for racial differences: Stage 1: The melanosome is empty and doesn't have the machinery to make melanin. Stage 2: The melanosome has the machinery to make melanin, but is empty of melanin. Stage 3: The machinery is there and the melanosome is half filled with melanin. Stage 4: The machinery is there and the melanosome is completely filled with melanin. Whites have mainly stages 1 and 2, whereas all people of color have melanin, with Blacks having more of stage 4.

Other amazing facts about Black Melanin:

* Melanin granules are "central computers" and may analyze and initiate body responses without reporting to the brain!

* Melanin slows aging and protects you from damning effects of sunlight. The darker your skin (genetically) the less it ages. Thus whites often have wrinkled skin in their 30s while Blacks often have smooth, unwrinkled skin even in "old" age.

* All people of color have Melanin circulating in the blood due to spillage from the melanosomes (Melanin packets).

* People containing high levels of Melanin (mainly Blacks) will always show a positive test for the use of marijuana! The chemical species found in the urine which indicates someone's use of marijuana is also found in the urine of Blacks!

* The Melanin molecule is so stable that it has been found in 150-million-year-old dinosaur fossils! It is highly resistant to chemical and physical analysis, this its precise structure is unknown!

"BLACKNESS" is a divine, cosmic principle of the Universe.

BLACK is the meaning of Kam or Khem – the name which the ancient Egyptians called themselves. From this word we get "Chemistry," the study of the building blocks of Life. Life is founded upon CARBON, the Black element present in all living matter. Black carbon atoms link to form Black Melanin, which has "Black Hole" properties! Black Holes are found at the center of our own galaxy and countless others. In physics, a "Black Body" is known to be a perfect absorber and perfect radiator of all forms of light and energy. This "Black Body Radiation" is at work in the electron, as shown by Nobel prize winner, Richard Feynman. The electron is responsible for ALL "Khem-ical" changes in matter. It has been present since the creation of the universe. The scientist, Jean Charaon proved that the electron has all the properties of the Black Hole, plus it exchanges "Black Photons" with other electrons, enabling it to continuously accumulate data. This means that if we view the electron as a carrier of memory, it has experienced everything in creation since the very beginning. Blackness is fundamental to the operation of the universe of Energy. God is the Giver of All Energy: "Blackness" (not darkness) allows the perfect reception of all wavelengths of Energy.

Melanin gives Black people superior physical, mental and spiritual ability.

Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body most rapidly in Black people, the Original People. Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites, and demonstrate more advanced cognitive skills than their white counterparts because of their abundance of Melanin. Carol Barnes writes "...your mental processes (brain power) are controlled by the same chemical that gives Black humans their superior physical (athletics, rhythmic dancing) abilities. This chemical... is Melanin!" The abundance of Melanin in Black humans produces a superior organism physically, mentally and spiritually. This why all the founders of the world's great religions are Black. Melanin is the neuro-chemical basis for what is called SOUL in Black people. In the same way Blacks excel in athletics, they can excel in all other areas as well (like they did in the past!) once the road blocks are removed!

Is God Black?

The Original Man was BLACK, "made in the IMAGE of God" his Parent, according to scared books. Children look like their parents. All the other races are but diluted variations of the Original Black Race. (see pages 7 and 8)

Most whites have calcified pineal glands which thwarts Melatonin production, thereby limiting their moral capacity. Located in the brain, the tiny pineal and pituitary glands regulate the body's other glands. Esoteric tradition regards the area of these glands as the third eye, seat of the soul, and the mystical Uraeus represented by the cobra on the forehead of Egyptian royalty/crowns. Why did Africans view the European as a child of God, but the Europeans viewed the African as a soulless savage? Because of "melatonin," described as a mentally and morally stimulating humanizing hormone produced by the pineal gland. Scientific research reveals that most whites are unable to produce much melatonin because their pineal glands are often calcified and non-functioning. Pineal calcification rates with Africans is 5-15%; Asians – 15-25%; Europeans – 60-80%! This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between Blacks and whites, causing some Black scholars to raise the question that the European approach, that of the logical, erect, rigid, anti-feeling posture, reflects a left brain orientation and reflects that they lack the chemical key of melatonin to turn on their unconscious and therefore cannot get into feelings. Carol Barnes writes "Melanin is responsible for the existence of civilization, philosophy, religion, truth, justice, and righteousness. Individuals (whites) containing low levels of Melanin will behave in a barbaric manner." Melanin give humans the ability to FEEL because it is the absorber of all frequencies of energy. Dr. Welsing writes "Since melanin is a superior absorber of all energy , it is essential to establish this understanding of God and 'all energy.' The fact that the albinos (whites) lack melanin may also help to explain ...why, in the view of many non-white peoples, they (whites) lack 'spirituality" and the capacity to tune in to, and thereby establish harmony and justice..."

The scientific evidence of Melanin threatens the ideology of white supremacy.

After considering Melain to be a "waste" product of body-metabolism which "served no useful function," Western (white) science has now discovered that Melanin is the chemical key to life and the brain itself! All studies and facts about Melanin suggest that after 400 years of attempting to inferiorize the Black race, "Western science is facing the sobering reality that, by its own self-defined standards, Black people are probably superior to whites in both intellectual potential and muscle coordination." (Sepia magazine interview). The central role Melanin plays in the body has been "suppressed to maintain the mythological inferiority of blacks ...and the defensive clinging to whiteness as some token of superiority." (Dr. Richard King) The "superiority complex" of white people is a defense mechanism and a mask for their deepset inferiority complex which they project onto people of color. Psychologists say insistent denial means reality in the opposite way. If whites really believed that white skin was "superior," why is "tanning" so important in white culture despite its known health risks (thousands die annually from skin cancer). Also, curling or permming lifeless, straight hair, and the latest; lip injections for a fuller look! And it is the white female who tells you that her ideal mate is "tall, DARK, and handsome!" "Dark" indeed refers to more Melanin!

"Messed-up Melanin" is killing Melanated people!

In their ongoing effort to destroy people of color, whites create "designer drugs," structured to chemically bind with and alter the Melanin molecule, causing it to become toxic and even fatal to highly melanated people! Carol Barnes, who documents this subject writes, "MELANIN can become toxic to the Black human because it combines with harmful drugs such as a cocaine, amphtamines, pyscholic, hallucinoge... marijuana... etc." The molecules of these drugs resemble the Melanin molecule! The body is fooled and its balance is thrown off as it relies on its drug-wrecked Melanin in order to function. Even legal drugs such as tetracyclines, neurolepts (tranquilizers), have strong affinity for bind to Melanin. Herbicides (paraquats,'agent orange' [dioxin]) bind irreversibly with Melanin and remain in the Black human throughout life causing many disorders. Drug abuse by Blacks is more likely to occur because Melanin causes Blacks to become addicted faster and stay addicted longer from these drugs which are deliberately placed in Black communities. Drugs are destroying the heart of Native American and Black society, causing many deaths.

Barnes, Box 3009189,Houston Texas, 77230).

All world civilization on all continents began with Black African people!

Given that the Black race is the oldest, this fact should come as no surprise! Historically Blacks have played the earliest civilizing role in the world as shown by Kamit (ancient Egypt), Sumer, Babylon, Canaan, Kush (Ethiopia), Indus Kush and Harrappa (ancient India), the Olmecs (ancient America) and Shang of ancient China. Other great African civilizations included the empires of Ghana, Mali, Songhai, Benin, Zimbabwe and the Moors who ruled southwest Europe for 700 years.

Blacks were first in Asia and pioneered Asia's early civilization!

The Black role in Asia as elsewhere in the world, has been submerged and distorted for centuries. Asia's African roots are well summarized in African Presence in Early Asia by Ivan Van Sertima & Runoko Rashidi, and African Presence in Early China by James Brunson. The original oriental people were Black, and many of them still are Black – southern China and Asia. The earliest occupants of Asia were 'small Blacks' (pygmies) who came to the region as early as 50,000 years ago. In 100 Amazing Facts About The Negro, J.A. Rogers reports that in 1923, Europeans first discovered "a hitherto unknown Negro race, the Nakhis, 200,000 in number, in Southern China." In The Children of the Sun George Parker writes "... it appears that the entire continent of Asia was originally the home of many black races and that these races were the pioneers in establishing the wonderful civilizations that have flourished throughout this vast continent." Reports of major kingdoms ruled by Blacks are frequent in Chinese documents. The first kingdom of Southeast Asia is called Fou Nan, famous for building masterful canal systems. Chinese historians described the Fou Nanese men as "small and black." The Ainus, Japan's oldest known inhabitants, have traditions which tell of a race of dark dwarfs which inhabited Japan before they did. Historians Cheikh Anta Dip and Albert Churchward saw the Ainus as originating in Egypt! There is archeological support for this. In addition, ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia records the "Anu" (Ainu?). The Ainu "... are of the same original race and type as the Australian Aborigines" reports Churchward in Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man. J.A. Rogers writes in Sex and Race Vol. I, "... there are any number of Japanese who, but for color and hair, bear a striking resemblance to the South African Bushman..." An ancient tradition points to the conquest of Japan from the southeast by a race of Black warriors.

Did Africans build those ancient pyramids in Japan and China?

There are man-made pyramids in China and Japan! China's pyramids are located near Siang Fu city in the Shensi province. The Chinese do not know how they got there but it is believed that Africans of the Nile Valley were the builders (J. Perry: The Growth of Civilization p.106,107) Mistaken for hill due to there eroded appearance, the ones in Japan are made of stones not indigenous to Japan. It is said they were built during the time of Mu. (see page 15) (A. Tebecis: Mahikari – Thank God for the Answers at Last – at Mahikari Centers, LA (310) 316-6867, The Pyramids of Japan – film by Alpha Media Corp.)

China's first historical dynasty and first emperor were Black!

Founded by 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-Black, Khi-man). Under the Black dynasty, the Chinese established the basic forms of a graceful calligraphy that has lasted to the present day. The first Chinese emperor, the legendary Fu-Hsi (2953-2838 B.C.) was a wooly haired Black Man. He is credited with establishing government, originating social institutions and cultural inventions. He is said to have originated the I Ching, or The Book of Change, which is the oldest, most revered system of prophecy. It is known to have influenced the most distinguished philosophers of Chinese thought.

The martial arts originated in AFRICA, not Asia!

Kilindi Iyi's essay in African Presence in Early Asia (by Van Sertima/Rashidi) reveals the African roots of the martial arts: Africans discovered very early that the movements of animals could be used effectively to develop their fighting skills. Also, that 'animal principles' could be isolated within the consciousness and manifested into an unconquerable fighting force. The oldest records of kicking, throwing, wrestling, and punching techniques were found in Egypt. These warrior scientists laid the foundation for all martial arts systems, including Kung Fu and Judo.

The first people of India were Africans! The word India itself means Black. Yoga and other so-called Eastern teachings originated in Africa!

The Latin word "India" is from the Greek word Indus (or Indos) which means Black. The earliest people of India were Black Africans! It is believed that many of them came from Ethiopia. Often called Dravidians, these Africans founded the great Indus Valley Civilization around 3000 B.C. They brought with them many spiritual sciences which originated in Africa, such as those of Yoga, Kundalini and Reflexology. They were masters of urban planning and architecture: their homes and cities had running water, toilets, and an underground sewage system! – evidenced at the Mohenjo Daro ruins (2000 B.C.). It is believed that the Ganges, the sacred river of India, is named after an Ethiopian king of that name who conquered Asia as far as this river. Buddha, Krishna, and other great Black sages arose from their successive civilizations, including the great King Asoka.

Barbaric whites invaded India, bringing destruction.

Around the 7th century B.C., nomadic, barbaric tribes of whites invaded India. Like their Greek cousins were to do later, these uncivilized whites learned civilization from the Blacks and overthrew them, destroying their great civilization. Like their European cousins were to do later with Christianity and Judaism, they distorted the Black's religion into a system which ensured their superiority while suppressing the natives. The caste system is the basis of their cunning, oppressive religious ideology which to this day enslaves the mind, body and soul of indigenous Blacks. Originally called Brahminism, this religion was altered and is now called Hinduism – the greatest curse to India's Blacks. According to Madame Blavatsky – founder of Theosophy (a philosophy based on India's sacred sciences), a type of caste system was already in place before the whites arrived. They worsened and exploited it, putting themselves on top. Historians incorrectly refer to these whites as "Aryan," a word stolen from the Sanskrit language of India's Blacks, where it meant noble cultivator or the holy as a title for Rishis (sages) who mastered the sacred science of Aryasatyani.

No justice exists for the Dalits: India's Black "Untouchables".

At the top of the Hindu caste pyramid sits the Brahmin. At the bottom are the heavily exploited, degraded, humiliated, slave-like, impoverished "Untouchables" who carry the weight of the entire population. They are the worse victims of Hindu society, along with women at all caste levels. African Presence in Early Asia presents an essay by Indian activists T. Rajshekar who writes: "From the very beginning it [Brahminism/Hinduism] has had the suppression of the native population and women, even Aryan women, as its primary principles... whereas the natives respected all humans and assured equal status to women. In fact, the natives of India were matriarchal..." These Black Untouchables are the long-suffering descendants of Aryan/Black unions and native Black populations who retreated into the hinterlands of India seeking escape from the advancing Aryan influence under which they eventually succumbed. They call themselves Dalits which means crushed and broken. Though the caste system (or varna system) was based originally on skin color (varna means color), color is not the main problem as some dark or light skinned people are found at the top and bottom. The problem is the sanctioned oppression of Black Untouchables. No justice exists for them! Crimes against them by caste Hindus almost always go unpunished! Rajshekar writes "No where else in the world is there an parallel to the Aryan persecution of the untouchables of India... It is a social, cultural, and religious institution... The caste structure maintains itself because every member of a particular caste group stands to gain by belonging to that particular caste-group. The caste system helps the exploitation of the weak by the strong. India's constitution not only does not interfere with caste, but fully upholds it... Caste system is based on purity and pollution. One group is considered more pure than the other. The less pure caste group accepts its lower status because it is happy that it has a much larger caste group below it to exploit. As long as there is somebody below it to exploit, it is proud and will not mind somebody always standing on its shoulders. So the entire caste structure is a ... self-sustaining, automatic, exploitive machine."

India's Blacks are ignorant of their African roots.

India's native Black population is the largest Black population outside Africa, numbering about 200 million. They have brown to black skin, straight or kinky hair and Africoid features, such as the famous Indian holy man, Sathya Sai Baba who has a large kinky afro. Rajshekar writes "The Black untouchables of India, even the educated among them are not aware of the common origin of Africans and Dalits. When they come to know of this and the struggle of the African-Americans and their spectacular achievements, our people will naturally become proud. Putting pride into their broken hearts is our prime task... The African-Americans also must know that their liberation struggle cannot be complete as long as their own blood-brothers and sisters living in far off Asia are suffering. It is true that African-Americans and India's Black Untouchables are both the victims of racism... African-Americans leaders can give our struggle tremendous support by bringing forth knowledge of the existence of such a huge chunk of Asian Blacks to the notice of both the American Black masses and the Black masses who dwell within the African continent itself... No group is better positioned to launch this cultural revolution than India's Dalits. Since we form the foundation of this caste pyramid, we alone are capable of shaking its structure, if not demolishing it... The moment that our people come to believe that they are neither Hindus nor obligated to obey the upper castees, the whole caste structure completely collapses."
