The death of a nation


“What became of the Black people of Sumer?’ the traveler asked the old man, for ancient records show that the people of Sumer were Black. `What happened to them?’ `Ah,’ the old man sighed. `They lost their history, so they died.”

–A Sumer Legend

I was putting together a follow up post on the Black women aint shit post, but I will interrupt that one to do this. Now we always talk about the violence in our community as being the shit that has broken us down. However, we forget that looooong before the internecine violence there was the step n fetch-it imagery that endured for a long time. Apparently the Afrocentric community is not the only one that is practicing Sankofa. Apparently the children of  Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, is also practicing their version of Sankofa. We see it on the Flavor of Love, Basket ball ho’s…er wives and shit on BET, at the source awards,Essence awards or freaknik ..if they still have that shit around. ut I will let my man Tariq Nasheed introduce you to the behaviour that is fucking us up faster than our fratricide. In fact there is a direct correlation.

    1. I am doing less research on Yurugu and how he is destroying us and more on how we are destroying ourselves. It is not pretty, cute or sane. I am glad you and the family are on the ball queen. We gonna need all the support we can muster.

    2. You are right my sister our awakening is coming soon: It is said that Imhotep, in an apocryphal text, the Book of Asclepius, foresaw our downfall and rebirth:

      “Book of Asclepius is one of the
      treatises of the Corpus ~emiet icurnI.t~ is~ a Latin translation of a Greek original.
      But behind these versions is an earlier Coptic text in the Nag Hamrnadi codices
      (CG VI, 8: 65, 15-78, 43) dating back to the fourth Century. The book is a sacred
      text supposed to be dedicated by Hermes Trismegistos, the Hellenistic figure of
      god Thot to his disciple, Asclepius, the Hellenistic version of Imhotep:

      This is a dialog between Thoth, the Lord of Knowledge & Wisdom

      and his Son Imhotep , the great Egyptian Architect and Doctor

      Chapter IX

      AND since we are brought to speak of the relationship and of the resemblance between men and Gods, behold, O Imhotep, the power and capacity of man! Even as the Ruler and Father, or to give Him the loftiest name– God is the creator of the firmamental Gods, so is man the creator of the Gods who dwell in temples, pleased with human proximity, and not only themselves illumined, but illuminating. And this both profits man and strengthens the Gods. Do you marvel, Imhotep? Do you lack faith as do many?

      Imhotep:

      I am confounded, O Thoth Twice Great; but yielding myself willingly to your words, I judge man to be happy in that he has obtained such felicity.

      Thoth:

      Horus, he deserves admiration, being the greatest of all the Gods! For the race of the Gods is formed of the purest part of Nature, without admixture of other elements, and their visible signs are, as it were, only heads. But the Gods which mankind makes, possess two natures–one divine, which is the first and by far the purest, the other belonging to humanity, which is the matter of which these Gods are composed, so that they have not only heads, but entire bodies, with all their limbs. Thus mankind, remembering its nature and its origin, persists in this matter, in the imitation of Deity, for even as the Father and Lord has made the eternal Gods after the similitude of Himself, so also has humanity made its Gods in its own image.

      Imhotep:

      Do you speak of the statues, Thoth Twice Great ?

      Thoth:

      Yes, of the statues, Imhotep. See how wanting you art in faith! Of what else should I speak but of the statues, so full of life, of feeling, and of aspiration, which do so many wonderful things; the prophetic statues which predict the future by bestowing dreams and by all manner of other ways; which strike us with maladies, or heal our pains according to our deserts? Are you not aware, O Imhotep, that Egypt is the image of heaven, or rather, that it is the projection below of the order of things above? If the truth must be told, this land is indeed the temple of the world. Nevertheless–since sages ought to foresee all things–there is one thing you must know; a time will come when it will seem that the Egyptians have adored the Gods so piously in vain, and that all their holy invocations have been barren and unheeded. Divinity will quit the earth and return to heaven, forsaking Egypt, its ancient abode, and leaving the land widowed of religion and bereft of the presence of the Gods. Strangers will fill the earth, and not only will sacred things be neglected, but–more dreadful still–religion, piety, and the adoration of the Gods will be forbidden and punished by the laws. Then, this earth, hallowed by so many shrines and temples, will be filled with sepulchers and with the dead. O Egypt! Egypt! there will remain of your religions only vague legends which posterity will refuse to believe; only words graven upon stones will witness to your devotion! The Scythian, the Indian, or some other neighboring barbarian will possess Egypt! Divinity will return to heaven; humanity, thus abandoned, will wholly perish, and Egypt will be left deserted, forsaken of men and of Gods!

      To you I cry, O most sacred River, to you I announce the coming doom! waves of blood, polluting your divine waters, shall overflow your banks; the number of the dead shall surpass that of the living; and if, indeed, a few inhabitants of the land remain, Egyptians by speech, they will in manners be aliens! You weepest, O Imhotep! But yet sadder things than these will come to pass. Egypt will fall into apostacy, the worst of all evils. Egypt, once the holy land beloved of the Gods and full of devotion for their worship, will become the instrument of perversion, the school of impiety, the type of all violence. Then, filled with disgust for everything, man will no longer feel either admiration or love for the world. He will turn away from this beautiful work, the most perfect alike in the present, the past, and the future. Nor will the languor and weariness of souls permit anything to remain save disdain of the whole universe, this immutable work of God, this glorious and perfect edifice, this manifold synthesis of forms and images, wherein the will of the Lord, lavish of marvels, has united all things in a harmonious and single whole, worthier for ever of veneration, of praise and love! Then darkness will be preferred to light, and death will be deemed better than life, nor will any man lift his eyes to heaven.

      In those days the religious man will be thought mad; the impious man will be hailed as a sage; savage men will be deemed valiant; the evil-hearted will be applauded as the best of men. The Soul, and all that belongs thereto–whether born mortal or able to attain eternal life–all those things which I have herein expounded to you, will be but matters for ridicule, and will be esteemed foolishness. There will even be peril of death, believe me, for those who are faithful to religion and intelligence. New rights will be instituted, new laws, nor will there be left one holy word, one sacred belief, religious and worthier of heaven and of celestial things. O lamentable separation between the Gods and men! Then there will remain only evil demons who will mingle themselves with the miserable human race, their hand will be upon it impelling to all kinds of wicked enterprise; to war, to rapine, to falsehood, to everything contrary to the nature of the soul. The earth will no longer be in equilibrium, the sea will no longer be navigable, in the heavens the regular course of the stars will be troubled. Every holy voice will be condemned to silence; the fruits of the earth will become corrupt, and she will be no more fertile; the very air will sink into lugubrious torpor. Such will be the old age of the world; irreligion and disorder, lawlessness, and the confusion of good men.

      When all these things shall be accomplished, O Imhotep, then the Lord and Father, the sovereign God who rules the wide world, beholding the evil ways and actions of men, will arrest these misfortunes by the exercise of His divine will and goodness. And, in order to put an end to error and to the general corruption, He will drown the world with a deluge or consume it by fire, or destroy it by wars and epidemics, and thereafter He will restore to it its primitive beauty; so that once more it shall appear worthier of admiration and worship, and again a chorus of praise and of blessing shall celebrate Him Who has created and redeemed so beautiful a work. This re-birth of the world, this restoration of all good things, this holy and sacred re-habilitation of Nature will take place when the time shall come which is appointed by the divine and ever-eternal will of God, without beginning and always the same.

      Imhotep:

      Indeed, Thoth Thoth Twice Great , the nature of God is Will reflected; that is, absolute goodness and wisdom.

      Thoth:

      O Imhotep, Will is the result of reflection, and to will is itself an act of willing. For He Who is the fullness of all things and Who possesses all that He will, wills nothing by caprice. But everything He wills is good, and He has all that He wills; all that is good He thinks and wills. Such is God, and the World is the image of His righteousness.

      Imhotep:

      Is the world then good, O Thoth Twice Great ?

      Thoth:

      Yes, the world is good, Imhotep, as I will inform you. Even as God accords to all beings and to all orders in the world benefits of divers kinds, such as thought, soul, and life, so likewise the world itself divides and distributes good things among mortals, changing seasons, the fruits of the earth, birth, increase, maturity, and other similar gifts. And thus God is above the summit of heaven, yet everywhere present and beholding all things. For beyond the heavens is a sphere without stars, transcending all corporeal things. Between heaven and earth he reigns who is the dispenser of life, and whom we call Amen . Over the earth and the sea he reigns who nourishes all mortal creatures, the plants and fruit-bearing trees, and whose name is Amon Sarapis. And those to whom it shall be given to dominate the earth shall be sent forth and established at the extremity of Egypt, in a city built towards the west, whither, by sea and by land, shall flow all the race of mortals.

      Imhotep:

      But where are they now, Thoth Twice Great ?

      Thoth:

      They are established in a great city, upon the mountains. Enough of this
