“…Hannibal, the most successful general that ever lived, was a black man. So was Beethoven; Beethoven’s father was one of the blackamoors that hired themselves out in Europe as professional soldiers. Haydn, Beethoven’s teacher, was of African descent. And Solomon. Great Biblical characters. Columbus, the discoverer of America, was a half-black man. Whole black empires, like the Moorish, have been whitened to hide the fact that a great black empire had conquered a white empire even before America was discovered. The Moorish civilization–black Africans–conquered and ruled Spain; they kept the light burning in Southern Europe. The word “Moor” means “black,” by the way.”–El Hajj Malik El Shabazz
Although, the great mind of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz expressed knowledge of the Moors, it must remain clear that Moors are not black. As taught by Noble Drew Ali, Moors were not and are not “negro, black or colored” as those are caste system terminologies.
To be negro is to be a beast or something that is without worth: an inanimate object.
To be black is to be dead: without life. There is no national land mass, no national standard (flag) or no national identity termed black. In history and throughout all other holy scripture, all people identified were recognized by their tribal or natal identity, not color.
The term colored is a legal term which means a thing similates a real entity and has all likeness of being real; however, despite its real-like appearance, it is not real.
Ther term Moor is the national parentage identity of those mis-guided and mis-labeled as negro, black, colored and African American.
Africa is a continent! The America’s are multiple continents (North, Central and South America)!
Nationality is the order of the day. For further validation, investigate the national roster within the United Nations and find a Nation of Black or a Nation of White. All national participants represent an orgnaized national body political. With this in mind, moorsgate.com not only encourages the study of spiritual “self”, but also the study of national parentage identity, as it is paramount that one honors their ancient mothers and fathers.
The above statements are validated by El Hajj Malik El Shabazz in the following comments from his Playboy interview in 1963:
“When I’m traveling around the country, I use my real Muslim name, Malik Shabazz. I make my hotel reservations under that name, and I always see the same thing I’ve just been telling you. I come to the desk and always see that “here-comes-a-Negro” look. It’s kind of a reserved, coldly tolerant cordiality. But when I say “Malik Shabazz,” their whole attitude changes: they snap to respect. They think I’m an African. People say what’s in a name? There’s a whole lot in a name. The American black man is seeing the African respected as a human being. The African gets respect because he has an identity and cultural roots. But most of all because the African owns some land. For these reasons he has his human rights recognized, and that makes his civil rights automatic.”
Study these statements and think about your national and international place amongst the family of nations.
