    So Where Does the Word ‘BLACK’ Come From?

    4022 BC-----3882----------2356----------1436----------AD 2----------------2008
    ------------------------3100s---------2000s-----------------------------------------------


    BULLOCK; Amen the Bull King
    Chaldea & Minoah

    The word ‘Black’ or ‘Bullock’ came to describe ‘the Chaldeans’ of Cush Ham but, the actual word goes much farther back in time to a Cainite man of whom made the name a common expression. His name was ‘Amen-the-Unifier’. Like many words of ancient times, the word ‘Black’ became ‘a contraction’ [a contracted word].

    Amen, ‘the Bull King’ rose up and fought for the Seth people of whom had been suppressed by the descendants of Cain. Amen-the-Unifier, also known as Narmer, Menes, the Scorpion king and other descriptive titles, became victorious and, he unified Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. He also began the first ruling dynasty. The formation of dynasties was already a way of life prior to the first ruling dynasty yet, there was no initiative need for the descendants of Seth to begin ‘a ruling dynasty’ [a family line of rulers] in their own inherited lands of the South World. But the earlier Cainites of whom came to dominate the lands of Seth claimed their rights to rule over Seth lands and people by gaining the acceptance of Seth people. The descendants of Seth accepted the Cainite worship of Cybele, the Earth Mother, and this system eventually allowed eastern men to gain land inheritance through the kind of women that elevated their purpose. The Cainite men gained domination over Seth men by popularity and by appointment. But when the Asiatics began to become supreme in North Egypt soon, Amen-the-Unifier rose up and he gained control of Egypt through a show of force. After his death, however, the Seth world ultimately went right back into captivity in their own lands. From that time forward, the Asiatic world loathed the memory of the Bull King while the Seth world edified him. It was for this reason that hundreds and hundreds of years later in the 2000s BC, the descendants of Ham came to equate themselves with ‘the bull’ [var. bullock; ‘lock’, ‘hair that locks’, ‘bull tuft’, ‘crown of the bull’… ‘Afro’].

    The symbol of ‘the bull’ [var. cow, cattle, bos, calf, cauca, buffalo, bullock, bison, ox, bovine, Brahma bull…the Apis bull ‘Jap-is’] would be another significant link to the nodeastern origins of Amen-the-Unifier as the Bull King. The bullock was an animal that was worshiped in the earliest of times by the descendants of Cain and later JapHeth whom were also of the northeastern parts of the world. The cow was an animal that became a main staple for their way of life and the eastern people can be traced as they brought their customs westwards into the land of Ham and Shem. The eastern people came to idolize the bull as being ‘a sacred animal’ in which they worshiped. This was one reason why the Creator God became angry when the Hebrews built ‘a golden calf’ as soon as they were spared from the Death Angel.

    After the death of Menes in the 3000s BC and during the time of the rule of the 3rd Dynasty, the Seth people rose up again but this time a Seth man led the charge and they started their own dynasty. The 4th Dynasty of the 2500s BC was the first ruling SETH DYNASTY to form! And Modern Egyptologist fail to reveal this most crucial part of ancient history. It becomes seemingly impossible for the modern scholars to accept that the Giza pyramids could have been mastered by their ideology of ‘the evil Seth men’. Even though the well known ruler of the 3rd Dynasty, DJOSER, identified himself with his own new name-title distinction of ‘GOLDEN HORUS’ and even though his facial attributes of having a heavily bearded face and etc. was in sharp contrast to the smooth clean face of his Theban high priest, Imhotep, somehow these obvious genetic traits and other details linked to the eastern man has escaped clarification! Howbeit, eventually the Seth kings bonded with the eastern women and soon, they became overwhelmed once again by the Cainites and . . . soon came the Great World Flood in 2356 B.C.!

    The Hamitic people received this ancient land of Seth after the flood. But like the pre-flood Seth world, they eventually accepted the governmental systems of the eastern world and lost their inheritance as well. However, the Chaldeans of Cush Ham became the first men to organize an awesome government and civilization after the flood and one major reason for this has to do with their development of their Cuneiform script and their ‘Schools of thought’ in which this script was utilized. They also gained trade power and all civilizations far and wide had to learn their language-script form in order to make trade with them. And, it was through the kind of relationships made with the eastern people that came to influence the Chaldeans of ancient Babylon [present day Iraq] to turn away from the Creator-God and to Idolatry. Soon, they filled their pantheons with all kinds of idols and the lapis lazuli bull [blue-black ‘sapphire’ haired bull] was one of many gifts given to them from the east.

    --------------------------------Chaldea or,
    --------------------------------Black Babylon

    The very root name ‘Chaldea’ has been inverted and means ‘Black’ [var. Bullack, Blach]! There are many other words that confirms ‘the color Black’ in reference to the Chaldeans such as ‘Chalcolithic’, ‘Chalcedony’, ‘California’ and many more! But due to the acceptance of eastern paganism, the idol worship in the form of ‘a black bull’ became a confusion. The Chaldeans were not initially Idol worshipers! They were strictly monotheistic of which agrees with the fact that they referred to themselves as ‘kings’! A king would be an ‘inherited ruler’ who becomes secondary to a priesthood and a whom also believes in God-the-Creator-of-the-sun. Their early association with ‘the spirit and likeness of the Bull’ and with Narmer was no different from the Semitic association of the spirit and likeness of a lion with Jesus as ‘the lion of the tribe of Judah’. But the Chaldeans accepted idols of bulls and etc. from the easterners as gifts and this form of flattery ultimately led them to become tricked, completely suppressed and soon, they found themselves into utter captivity even in their own lands. But after they initially developed an extensive civilization in Mesopotamia, they became so desired and sought after that other early cities were also built up by them and one such early Greek civilization also bares their name and presence; The Crete-Minoan [Crete-Minoah] civilization.

    ---------------------------------Minoan Greece
    -----------------------Nimrod’s [Min-nim] sons; Ministers
    -------------------------------The Minotaur Bull

    Nimrod was one of several descendants of Cush Ham but script reveals that he became one of the greatest. It was his sons that give rise to titles we know today such as ‘Minister’, ‘Prime Minister’, ‘Minister of affairs’ and etc. Also, his sons became the early ‘Ambassadors’ [Dors]. They were the ‘Dorian Greeks’ [Nimrod-dor] of which most historians never hesitate to admit were not the aboriginal Greeks. Modern scholars pretend not to know of the origin of the Minoan Greeks and the Dorian Greeks [var. Spartan Greeks]. But along with these Ambassadors of Ham came many eastern people into the lands of the aboriginal Greeks as well and this kind of confusion covered up the true contributors to the very foundation of the earliest of civilizations.

    The early Crete-Minoan civilization [var. Cretan or Grecian] was also extensive and it was a shared system between Shem and Ham. The aboriginal Shemites welcomed these Ambassadors into their lands because of their technological advancements. But due to the acceptance of eastern idolatry, soon the Black people became suppressed into a miserable existence in which human sacrifice became prevalent. The idol worship of ‘the Black Bull’ became a central figure in Crete-Minoa and this ideology was used to exploit the aboriginal Greeks as well as the Hamitic-Greeks. They became ‘the potent Minoan Bull’ in association with the more ancient ‘god Min’ and all kinds of legends arose after the Black Greeks were suppressed of how the White Greek Heroes conquered and slaughtered the sex-crazed Black Bulls [var. Minotaur Bull, Taurus Bull]. So many ancient relics have been excavated of these times showing that the ‘Black Bull’ theme dominated the Crete-Minoan civilization. Did they forget history? Did they forget how the ancient Asiatics hated Amen-the-Unifier? Did history repeat itself because of forgetfulness and lack of recorded history?

    The Crete-Minoans became shrouded in history behind frescoes of red and white people and legends like ‘the Minotaur bull’. During the Olympic times [600s BC], these Black-Greeks became slated as Lacodaemons [Black Demons of Laconia] and as ‘Laki’ [var. Laconic, Kali-Laki, Loki] of which became a derogatory expression. They became ‘minstrels of music’ instead of ‘ministers of affairs’. After their civilization collapsed, the later Greeks came to have a yearly festival* in which they chose a ‘black bull’ and people would dress up and cheer while the bull was paraded through the streets. Hired dancers would dance before the bull as it was led by the bull master up a hill and tied to a tree. Then, the bull was finally slaughtered while the people cheered. After this and all night long, wild dancing, eating and drinking would go on. Modern Greeks are said to have made a change, and initially, they shock the ceremonial/sacrificial bull before they commence to slaughter it.

    Off and on for the next 1000 years, Black Shem and Ham repeatedly became preyed upon by the eastern world they embraced. And after the fall the Neo-Babylonian Empire [in the 500s BC], the Black Babylonians [Chaldea Babylonians] ‘oaths of a Nasserite’ for the Creator-God to help them overthrow their eastern oppressors was heard no more. The Arabs eventually came to possess their lands. It was also prophesized that the Creator God would send a Savior to show, by example, how to refrain from falling prey to deception. But even still, Daniel-the-prophet wrote of the greatness of Black-Babylon. Jesus referred to Chaldea-Babylonia as the best government that ever formed. He called it ‘the Golden Kingdom’. Not only that but, these Cush-Hamites were also referred to by their earlier ‘Seth’ connections to the spirit and likeness of ‘Lions’ [var. Leon or Black Lions; Daniel 7:4], a point in time that reveals their earlier bonds with their brothers, Mizraim-Ham. The lion was indigenous to their lands. This was how the word ‘Black’ was passed down through the ages.

    Chevron,

    Well, thanks for the lesson in philology Sister Chevron Dove on the origin of the word black; a very interesting assessment. The relative references above, certainly in my view, qualifies you as a philologist, with valid accreditation...Peace In my sister friend.

    The word black, colored, were all marks placed upon the Moors of Northwest by the Europeon nations. Black, means death. Colored means anything that has been painted, stained, varnished or dyed. Ethiopia meant something divided, though later the Romans changed their definition of the word to mean Land of the burnt faces. Negro is a name that was given to a river in Africa by Moors because it contained black water. Negro does mean black in Spanish. As tha slave trade kicked off, these were the names and some of the transitions Africans would go through, all with the purpose of excluding them from the greatness of their own forefathers, land, native tongue and culture.

    Just some of what i felt it came from but you laid it out and open awesome research
    and post thankz for sharing and teaching here ........

    all of which (thank you brother $$rich$$) seems to suggest that we dump the "black" and get back to "African", eh? (although i see that the "welcome mat" for Africans has been withdrawn from every page title, so i guess "getting back" might not be happening any time soon ...)

    Thank you so much!

    I do agree with what you have written too. I was told that during the Slave Trade, the continent of Africa became dubbed 'the Dark Continent' in a derogatory mode and this negativity continued even after chattel slavery ended in the States. It was like 'taboo' for African Americans to even speak on anything about Africa.

    Peace.

    Great Thread brother....let me add:

    http://www.africanholocaust.net/html_ah/holocaustspecial.htm

    Africans became black when Africans became enslaved. This was a critical process in the making of a slave; disconnecting the African from any notion of having a Motherland. Black people (negroes in Spanish) is a construction which articulates a recent social-political reality. Political blackness is thus not an identity in terms of who a people are but moreover a social-political consequence of a world which after colonialism and slavery existed in those color terms. Indians are no longer "brown people", Chinese do not respond to being called "yellow." identity is always geographical and ties the people to their native environment or their core doctrine (Jews of Judaism, Muslims of Islam, Chinese of China). There is no country called Blackia or Blackistan. Hence, the ancestry-nationality model is more respectful and accurate: African-American, African-British, African-Arabian, African-Brazilian, and African-Caribbean.

    Today terms like sub-Saharan Africa dominate history books and discussions on Africa. But this term is not an African construction but yet another European linguistic tool to divide and conquer. This barrier of sand hence confines Africans to the bottom of this make-believe location, which exists neither politically (African Union), ethnically (Tuareg), linguistically (Afro-Asiatic), religiously (Islam) or physically (Sudan and Mali). Sub-Saharan Africa is used as a by-word for primitive African: a place, which has escaped advancement. Hence, we see statements like, “no written languages exist in Sub-Saharan Africa” and “Egypt is not a Sub-Saharan African civilization.” It is a term used to satisfy negative perceptions and feed the "Dark Continent."

    Part of any examination of Slavery and it's legacy must also look at how language is use to favor European interest and justify slavery. "Black on Black" violence in Africa is a term which is used to say Slavery was self-inflicted. But then the Jewish Holocaust would be "White on White." Words have powerful meanings and a serious effect on historical perception.

    African vs. black BLACK OR AFRICAN

    Black is a construction which articulates a recent social-political reality of people of color (pigmented people). Black is not a racial family, an ethnic group or a super-ethnic group. Political blackness is thus not an identity but moreover a social-political consequence of a world which after colonialism and slavery existed in those color terms. An identity is generally geographical and ties the people to their native environment or their core doctrine (Jews of Judaism, Muslims of Islam, Chinese of China). African and black are not interchangeable just as Dark continent and Africa are not. Self-determination allows a people to re-examine definitions and sculpt them to their reality. Black, like Negro is facing linguistic extinction, especially in academic circles, due to its poor foundation in speaking about the oldest and most diverse people on the planet.

    The word “Black” has no historical or cultural association, it was a name born when Africans were broken down in to transferable labor units and transported as chattel to the Americas. The re-labeling of the Mandika, Fulani, Igbo, Asante, into one bland color label- black, was part of the greater process of absolute removal of African identity; a color epithet that Europe believed to be the lowest color on Earth, thus reflecting the social designation of African people in European psyche. Black does not fully articulate the history and geopolitical reality of African people. Black as a political (or colloquial) term was fashioned as a reactionary concept in the 60's and 70's against White supremacy, but it was never meant as an epithet for African people, but moreover a transitory term to move a people away from Colored and Negro. As a political term it was fiery and trendy but never was it an official racial classification of peoples who have a 120,000 year old history. Indians are from India , Chinese from China . There is no country called Blackia or Blackistan. Hence, the ancestry-nationality model is more respectful and accurate: African-American, African-British, African-Arabian, African-Brazilian, and African-Caribbean.

    The mass usage of “black” by people of African decent is poor justification for the flagrant usage of the word. Because if that argument is to hold-up it would be justified to start using the term Nig+er again, due to the self-destructive resurgence of this word among African-American people. Europe has created a linguistic identity crisis, so they cannot then point to the victims of that crisis for justification for using a term they branded people with.

    Even today when Africans write they carelessly jump between Black, black and African without any continuity.

    And if Black people has some validity as a political term it can not be limited in its application to people of African decent. Nostalgia is not an accurate place for African linguistic self-determination, and blackness is blatantly a cultural inheritance of oppressed people. The pattern of acceptance of a black identity globally walks hand in hand with European cultural oppression. It is worth noting parts of African that are culturally intact such as in Ethiopia, Mali, Somalia, Nigeria and Niger have absolutely no fondness or linguistic presence of a "black identity."

    How does one arrive at the term “black Africans,” are there green Africans? Would you speak of “yellow Chinese,” or “brown Indians”? If 95% of Africans are “Black” (capital B, if it must be used) then the minority should bear the adjective--not the majority. It is disrespectful to describe Africans with a label based solely on a color, especially when it does not accurately reflect the physical appearance of most Africans. This is made even more offensive when the etymological root of that label (black) is derived from the word Negro, and is used in place of the word African as a racial or cultural identity. In reality we must ask ourselves what is the difference between "Negro" and "Black" save historical association, the words mean the same thing, so we have moved from being Black in Spanish (negro) to Black in English (black). It is strange that despite all the genetic research and advance human anthropology we are still clinging to primitive 18th century post-Darwin model of race, which sole aim was/is to segregate and de-culturalize and enslave.
