    And they said that there was no Black people in Russia.

    Taken from wikipedia...

    Prince Andrei Alexandrovich was born at the Winter Palace, Saint Petersburg the second child but first son of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich and Grand Duches Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia.[1] Although a grandson of Emperor Alexander III through his mother, he was not entitled to the title Grand Duke of Russia because he was only a great-grandson of Emperor Nicholas I in the male line through his father. Despite being only a Prince of Russia, he received a 21 gun salute at birth (which was usually reserved for Grand Dukes, with a 15 gun salute for Princes of Russia) at the insistence of his grandmother the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.[2]
    In his youth, before World War I, Prince Andrei toured Europe with his parents. At Biarritz, he joined his great uncle King Edward VII of the United Kingdom at the palace Hotel. Prince Andrei joined the Russian navy and served under his father Grand Duk Alexander Mikhailovich of Russia. Later he became lieutenant in the Chevalier guards, whose colonel-in-chief was his uncle, Emperor Nicholas II. Just before the Russi revolution, he was the only member of his family to accompany the Empress Alexandra and her four daughters on their last visit to the churches of Novgorod.

    We will finish the month as we started it, with John of Gaunt's descendants. While Blythe Giffor wrote about the Beauforts, the side of the family born on the wrong side of the blanket, I'll cover the Lancasters, the legitimate heirs who became kings.
    John of Gaunt (1340-1399) played an important role in government during the minority of his nephew, Richard II. He also became perhaps the wealthiest man in England.

    Richard II turned out to be a poor king who lacked the military skills of his father, the famous Black Prince. When John of Gaunt died, Richard made the fatal mistake of disinheriting John's son Henry Bolingbroke and taking the Lancaster lands for the crown. Bolingbroke, who was in exile in France, landed in Northumberland allegedly to take back his inheritance. As he rolled across England, disgruntled nobles joined his cause. He took the crown from his cousin to become Henry IV, the first Lancaster king

    Boris Pasternak Author of Doctor Zhivago.

    [​IMG]
    His biography lists his ethnicity as Jewish and his Nationality as Russian. Here's one of his poems called Black February.
    Black spring! Pick up your pen, and weeping,

    Of February, in sobs and ink,

    Write poems, while the slush in thunder

    Is burning in the black of spring.
    Through clanking wheels, through church bells ringing

    A hired cab will take you where

    The town has ended, where the showers

    Are louder still than ink and tears.
    Where rooks, like charred pears, from the branches

    In thousands break away, and sweep

    Into the melting snow, instilling

    Dry sadness into eyes that weep.
    Beneath — the earth is black in puddles,

    The wind with croaking screeches throbs,

    And–the more randomly, the surer

    Poems are forming out of sobs.
    Boris Pasternak, Февраль. Достать чернил и плакать! (1912) (Lydia Pasternak Slater transl.)

    Boris Pasternak Memorial Room Chistopol, a river port on the River Kama, is some 600 miles east of Moscow. At Ul. Lenina (formerly Volodarskogo ul.), 81, kv.2, is the room where Boris Pasternak spent two years as an evacuee during the Second World War, now open to the public as a "memorial room". The building, a turn-of-the-century private residence which once belonged to a family by the name of Vavilov, stands on a street where the same lime and poplar trees, of which Pasternak wrote in his poetry, grow. By the nearby River Kama there is a wide alley of old trees where Pasternak used to walk

    The First Duke of Prussia appears to be Black along with some members of the House Of Hesse of Prussia. Prussia became Germany around 1871. Some parts of Poland may also have been Prussia.

    This is the problem we have now. Our people civilized them, taught them to wash their behinds, how to eat, how to read, how to wear underwear and gave them all the technology that they have. Now they want to exalt themselves or their people as the originators of all this and more. Had our ancestors known that they existed in and apparently loved the state that they were living in, they would not have tried to help them. In the book by a white author entitled: The Moors in Spain, by stanley poole....he states that "when the Moors were expelled, that Spain killed its golden goose." He further goes on to say that, "The expulsion of the Moors from Spain set the world 500 years behind !!"

    Thank you for the photos !!
