Did slavery really come from Africa or is that a myth?


Did slavery really come from Africa or is that a myth?
Ok so lets break down African slavery. They say slavery started in Africa, but lets really make sense of that and think of it.
Slavery started after the start of civilization. Meaning before cities were built there was no use for slaves because you would just hunt your own food down, and eat it right away. They also just lived in Papyrus Huts mostly. So Africans as Homo Sapiens are only 194,000 years old and farming started around 10,000 bc, and major civilization started around 3000bc. So now we have to look at where African civilization was located along the Nile. The Nile was a key source to understanding why Africa didn’t have slaves till later on, while other civilizations did. The Nile flooded from around June-September during those times the field workers didn’t have work. So from June-September they built Pyramids and Temples, then after September they would return to harvest the fields. Ok so we have that, now lets look at another thing, what sense does it make to have slaves with that setup, then on top of that Egypt never even paid their workers. Egypt had a system where they paid their workers in in food. So they would harvest the fields, then bring back the food, then they would place the food on a scale, and it would have a certain value. They then would take that home to eat and the rest would be used to barter for homade goods and services among the citizens.
Ok so we have that, and you say well why does the bible say it was slaves. Well the bible is not a history book. There is no record nowhere of Egypt having slaves, and Egyptians kept record of everything. So you say well what about the Hebrews? Well theres not one mention of the Hebrews, theres only a story of Israelite Leopard immigrants, coming to Egypt and being fled out, to Syria where they were slaughtered .
Ok so now lets examine slavery that was happening in that time period, but at other parts of the world.
In Mesopotamia, they are said to have slaves as well. They had a The cuneiform symbol for slave, Ama-gi means freedom, and "manumission", "exemption from debts or obligations. Ruler Urukagina was the first to use the term, In the reforms of Urukagina around 2400 bc.
Now The Code of Hammurabi is a Babylonian law book that is the oldest record of slavery that I could find. It states
117. If any one fail to meet a claim for debt, and sell himself, his wife, his son, and daughter for money or give them away to forced labor: they shall work for three years in the house of the man who bought them, or the proprietor, and in the fourth year they shall be set free.
118. If he give a male or female slave away for forced labor, and the merchant sublease them, or sell them for money, no objection can be raised.
119. If any one fail to meet a claim for debt, and he sell the maid servant who has borne him children, for money, the money which the merchant has paid shall be repaid to him by the owner of the slave and she shall be freed.
Now I have slavery in Greece recorded around 700bc, which the start date might be actually earlier. Around 500bc Athenian Census records of Demetrius have Athens citizen population at 60,000. Its slave population was at an astounding 470,000.
Now lets go to Rome. Rome had chain gang type slavery, they had gladiators, and they had slave revolts. Spartacus was one of the famous slave revolts. This is the first time I see American type of slavery. Not debt repayment, prison sentencing, or prisoners of war, but straight brutal slavery.
So now we move on to the Moors, which were black and Arab. They only had house servants, and military slaves. They don’t have a record of brutal slavery, Slavery is an accepted part of life in Arabia during the time of Muhammad, in the 7th century, and the Qur'an offers no arguments against the practice. It states, particularly in relation to female slaves, that they must be well treated. In general that has been the case, compared with the barbaric treatment of slaves in some Christian communities.
So here we are all the way up to 700ad and now this brings us into Africa. Slavery was actually introduced by the Muslims. They would round up the slaves and have them serve in their armies in areas of Takrur, and Zawila . African tribes were converted to Islam and they waged holy wars against traditional African religious tribes or Pagan tribes as they called them. So basically Mali was used by the Islamic faith to wage war on surrounding tribes, that the Arasbs tricked into thinking they were unholy.
Then you have the Europeans form of gathering, which was raid the tribes once, then get them to make a treaty. The treaty consisted of the tribe paying an annual offering of slaves each year. So that forced the tribes to go out to other tribes and gather slaves for Europeans, or face violent penalties.
Now when European slavery started, The Kingdoms of Oyo, Dahomey and Asante were at war. One would win and the other would pay tribute to the other tribe. The Asante used slaves to clear the forest, then to mine gold. So that’s the exstent of African slavery.
So now lets take a look at African culture. In some African culture, if you commit a crime, then you are in debt to whom you committed the crime to. Or as they call it you would pay tribute to that person until they forgave you. Then after they had forgiven you, you could get back in good hands with your God or creator. This might be the 7 years of servitude everyone is talking about, because I have yet to find any records of that. This is not slavery, this is the church and state working together as a judicial system. This is a big difference from any type of slavery.
Ok now to wrap this up lets take a look at the full picture of what African slavery is and why it may have gotten a bad wrap in the first place.
Lets take a look at the Greeks again. They loved Egyptian and Ethiopian culture. They loved it so much that they have been documented to intensively study the 2 cultures and even go to the extent of placing Ethiopians in their mythology. Now the Greeks loved their culture so much that they invaded Egypt and placed their own citizens as Pharaohs. Now check this out. The oldest |Bible found was in Greek text, in the hands of the Greeks during their rule in Egypt. Yes that’s right the same Bible and the only book that paints Africans as enslavers was written by the invaders, Its called the sinaitic text. So how are we going to go off of the word of culture vulture invaders?
The question still remains, was Africa the originator of slavery? Or is that just a myth?

Could the Egtyptians, have been Arab?



Could the Egtyptians, have been Arab?
Ok so they ask....well could the Egyptians in Egypt now that look like Arabs, have looked the same back in ancient times? Ummmm big no....let me explain. Egyptians are from Ethiopia, Ethiopia is higher elevation which creates lighter dark skin...light brown skin. Ok so when you see that popular image showing Egyptians, Serians, and Nubians, its clear distinctions. Even Pharaoh called asiatics or middle easterns "whites" which is a clear distinction that there was a color difference that he saw between the two.....so no they were not the same color as they are today, and you can see it for yourself in Pharaohs multiple words.....
Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs warn against cowardly, treacherous "whites" comparing them to destructive thieves and reptiles.
"The Instruction for King, Merikare takes a similar tone for peoples in the north (Lichtheim 1973: 10404):
Lo the miserable Asiatic (white),
He is wretched because of the place he's in:
Short of water, bare of wood,
Its paths are many and painful because of mountains.
He does not dwell in one place,
Food propels his legs,
He fights since the time of Horus..
He does not announce the day of combat,
Like a thief who darts about a group.."
"Asiatics (whites) are both cowardly and pitiful, leading a marginal existence, constantly fighting but with nothing ever settled. They are also sly and ultimately treacherous, attacking without warning. This passage characterizes Asiatics as both primitive and threatening.. In this case, the passage reflects Egypt's combination of colonial domination and outright military conflict.."
Merikare goes on (Lichtheim 1976: 103-104)
"The Asiatic is a crocodile on its shore
It snatches from a lonely road,
It cannot seize a populous town."
"Along the same lines, the Prophecy of Neferti (c. 1950 BC) portrays Asiatic immigrants as a flock of rapacious birds descending on Egypt, taking advantage of civil wars of the First Intermediate Period (c. 2150 - 2050 BC) to infiltrate parts of the rich Egyptian delta (Lichtheim 1973: 141):
A strange bird will breed in the delta marsh,
having made its nest besides the people..
All happiness is vanished,
The land is bowed down in distress,
Owing to those feeders,
Asiatics who roam the land..
--Stuart Tyson Smith. (2003) Wretched Kush: ethnic identities and boundaries in Egypt's Nubian empire. Routledge, pp. 28-31

Did Ethiopians build the Pyramids?


Did Ethiopians build the Pyramids?
The pictures on the Egyptian monuments reveal that Ethiopians were the builders. They, not the Egyptians, were the master-craftsmen of the earlier ages. The first courses of the pyramids were built of Ethiopian stone. The Cushites were a sacerdotal or priestly race. There was a religious and astronomical significance in the position and shape of the pyramids. Dubois points to the fact that in Upper Egypt there were pictured black priests who were conferring upon red Egyptians, the instruments and symbols of priesthood. Ethiopians in very early ages had an original and astounding religion, which included the rite of human sacrifice. It lingered on in the early life of Greece and Home. Dowd explains this rite in this way: "The African offered his nearest and dearest, not from depravity but from a greater love for the supreme being." The priestly caste was more influencial upon the Upper Nile than in Egypt. With the withdrawal of the Ethiopian priesthood from Egypt to Napata, the people of the Lower Nile lost the sense of the real meaning of their religion, which steadily deteriorated with their language after their separation from Ethiopia

Origins of Nubians

Origins of Nubians


Strabo mentions the Nubians as a great race west of the Nile. They came originally from Kordofan, whence they emigrated two thousand years ago. They have rejected the name Nubas as it has become synonymous with slave. They call themselves Barabra, their ancient race name. Sanskrit historians call the Old Race of the Upper Nile Barabra. These Nubians have become slightly modified but are still plainly Negroid. They look like the Wawa on the Egyptian monuments. The Retu type number one was the ancient Egyptian, the Retu type number two was in feature an intermingling of the Ethiopian and Egyptian types. The Wawa were Cushites and the name occurs in the mural inscriptions five

The oldest African, that I have found recorded in history



The oldest African, that I have found recorded in history

literature of Asia Minor dealt with this extension of the Ethiopian domain. An old poem "Phrygia," was a history of Dionysus, one of the most celebrated of the old Ethiopians. It was written in a very old language and character. He preceeded Menes by many ages. Baldwin says that the authentic books that would have given us the true history concerning him, perished long before the Hellenes. The Greeks of historical times distorted the story of Dionysus and converted him into their drunken god of wine. "They misconstrued and misused the old Cushite mythology, wherever they failed to understand it, and sought to appropriate it entirely to themselves." One of the poetical versions of the taking of Troy, on the coast of Asia Minor, was entitled "The Æthiops," because the inhabitants of Troy, as we shall prove later, who fought so valiantly in the Trojan war, were Cushite Ethiopians. This version presented the conflict as an Egyptian war.

Inca Ethiopia and India connection


Inca Ethiopia and India connection

Ok so I earlier stated the connection of Ethiopia and India, well heres another piece to that. It is written that there was a city called Meru in Ethiopia, that preceded Egypt and Nubia. The Dravidians came from that city, and migrated to India. Well their Hindu King was named “Indra, King of Meru”.
Ok now lets go down to Peru. The Incas have a place called Gate of the Gods Stargate and Dimensional Doorway Carved in Solid Rock at Lake Titicaca, Peru

The native indians of the region had a legend that spoke of “a gateway to the lands of the Gods”, and in that legend, it was said that in times long past great heroes had gone to join their gods, and passed through the gate for a glorious new life of immortality, and on rare occasions those men returned for a short time with their gods to “inspect all the lands in the kingdom” through the gate.
one Incan priest of the Temple of the Seven Rays named Amaru Meru (Lord Meru, Aramu Muru) fled from his temple with a sacred golden disk known as “the key of the gods of the seven rays”, and hid in the mountains of Hayu Marca. He eventually came upon the doorway which was being watched by shamen priests. He showed them the key of the gods and a ritual was performed with the conclusion of a magical occurrence initiated by the golden disk which opened the portal, and according to the legend blue light did emanate from a tunnel inside. The priest Amaru Meru handed the golden disk to the shamen and then passed through the portal “never to be seen again”
Peruvian prophecy states that all the Americas were once united by a common spiritual tradition and leader, and that they will be again. We were anciently united as Amaru-ca or Ameru-ca, Ameri-ca, meaning the “Land of the Serpent”, during a time when the serpent was the universal symbol of mystical wisdom and spiritual power. One legend states that North and South America were named after a culture bearer known historically as Aramu Muru or A maru (serpent/wisdom) the “Serpent (wisdom master) Meru,” with connections to the mythical Mount Meru, abode of the Demi-Gods.

Tupac Shakur’s name was Tupac Amaru Shakur, and he was named after Inca revolutionary Tupac Amaru.
