    CAPTION: Slave Ships? & the Exploitation of Black Women in Ancient Egypt

    Slave Ships? & the Exploitation of Black Women in Ancient Egypt [part IV]
     
    And when he [Moses] was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit
    his brethren the children of Israel. ACTS 7:23.

    And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which​
    the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other​
    Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the​
    Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son,​
    then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.​

    But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt​
    commanded them, but saved the men children alive. And the​
    king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why​
    have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?​
    And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women​
    are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are​
    delivered ere the midwives come in unto them…​

    And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born​
    ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.​
    EXODUS 1:15-22.​

    The history that stems from the 18th Dynasty of ancient Egypt has a definite bearing on what happened in Rwanda and humanity as a whole. Due to the worship of the ancient eastern supreme goddess, Ashteroth, in ancient Egypt especially during those times, a Color Caste System set up and this kind of history has continued to affect Africa and the world for thousands of years. So in order to understand current happenings amongst African people today, this ancient history in Africa (Egypt) should be considered. Certain kinds of people under the Thutmosis rule, including the Israelites, carried this experience with them wherever they went as many of them eventually migrated away to other parts of Africa and the world and this becomes evident in what happened in Rwanda. But just like the Hutus and the Tutsi people today that came to endure a horrible conflict between each other, so many other Black people across the world could just as easily come to that kind of incredible display of hate and disrespect towards each due to the influence of White Supremacist that have permeated our civilizations and caused us to become divided on superficial reasons such as the color of our skin or the shape of our noses. The Hutu and Tutsi people have been apart of Africa for thousands of years and therefore, no matter what kind of conflicts exist between them today, there was a time that they were able to exist together in peace. But because of the deliberate gaps in our education, we are unable to see past certain time periods such as the time when major divisions, hostilities, and disrespect occurred as the result of the Slave Ship Era, a time when Black people turned against each other so badly, that they obviously sought benefits and sick gratification from evil White people for destroying another Black persons life. There has to be an earlier origin. Because the Bible has been explained to us from a White Eurocentric perspective, we have been unable to recognize some vital points in time that would become beneficial to this end. If better defined, it would also help in understanding the current affairs of today, not only in Rwanda but in other parts of the world amongst Black African people.

    According to the scriptures and the Bible timelines, Moses was born in the year 1516 and amazingly, his life spans across the lives and rule of several pharaohs during that dynasty. In fact, the Bible states that Moses was actually eighty (80) years old when he led masses of people out of Egypt during the Exodus. So even though the actual names of the pharaohs were blotted out of the Bible, a contrast and comparison of the Bible and the Egyptian records surprisingly reveals that each and every pharaoh can be completely identified based upon their specific acts and deeds. Moses was born under the rule of Amenophis II and he was the pharaoh that ordered the mass killings of little Hebrew baby malefactors and according to the Bible, his daughter Bithia, drew the baby Moses out of the Nile river where he had been floating in a little basket. Because of the words of the little girl who stood in the reeds nearby who happened to be the sister of the baby, Bithia summoned the very mother and gave her the opportunity to nurse her own baby until he was old enough to be weaned and given away in order to further spare his life. Then Bithia, of whom named the baby, Moses, took the baby away from his mother and claimed the baby to be her own son and from then on, she raised Moses up and had him thoroughly and formally educated right under her father and the very Egyptians that would have taken his life. As the secular records show in total agreement with the Bible, Amenophis II developed a total disrespect and disregard for the ‘Black’ African-typed woman after he became king to the point in which he began to suppress his own women-kind and not even have them validated and recorded in order to cover up the fact that he began to bond with White, Asiatic-typed women, and elevated them to be supreme over Black women. Therefore Bithia, his Egyptian daughter, was abandoned but nevertheless as his daughter, she initially had certain liberties of which he overlooked. Amenophis II trapped Black women by his deliberate actions and made them subjected to his rule at a whim, and therefore he obviously believed that they had no power or control anyway.

    But unlike the long gone Egyptian daughter of Thutmosis I, Hatshepsut, of whom was too, placed in a subjective position under the Egyptian men, Bithia did not harbor a disdain towards other kinds of Black people based upon the superficial belief that she was higher caste. Bithia was similar to the two Hebrew midwives, Shiphrah and Puah [Hebrew & Phut-typed woman], of whom although the pharaoh ordered them to kill the Hebrew babies, they refused even though they probably knew they would be vulnerable to become harmed as a result of violating the pharaohs orders. But because Hatshepsut elevated and clung to a strange Mittanian common man named, Senemut [Senemit] who eventually showed that he only exploited her for the benefit of Asiatic people, under her rule many Black people from Nubia and Syria were exploited and dragged into Egypt to become captives. Today White scholars write a confusion about her and while some say that she was noted for great innovations such as the erection of her obelisks and for her expedition to the land of Punt, some write discreetly that she also had campaigns against Nubia and Syria. They downplay the fact that the depictions in her temple clearly show that during her major expedition to the land of Punt in which she docked no less than five ships on the coastlands, under her name, the Egyptians also went in search of slaves and had captured Nubians forced into her ships. Therefore, as a Black Egyptian woman, she was totally being exploited but nevertheless, at least some of these ships became used as none other than slave ships. White scholars also omit the torture and strenuous human labor it took in order to construct the number of obelisk as well. In order to carve out the large stones, the laborers would have to swat down for many hours in a narrow groove, a ditch, in a quarry and pound and strike at the large rock with a smaller hard obsidian rock for an incredible amount of time, and even though some of these massive obelisk were constructed during the rule of Hatshepsut, it was her advisor Senemut of whom she elevated that oversaw these feats. But today the information about this has been clouded.

    At some point the Asiatics began to fight against the Egyptians and eventually, Senemut’s actions surfaced. The Egyptians discovered that not only did he oversee major building constructions in honor of Hatshepsut, but he also made two elaborate tombs and a chapel for himself. In one tomb he buried his common family members and in another he designed a star map. But chapels were usually made for ancient Egyptian rulers to be worshiped. Senemut made his chapel near the temple of Hatshepsut, and it was in this chapel that the Egyptians eventually saw some of his actions. Apparently and according to the depictions in his chapel, Senemut received delegations of Asiatics of whom regarded him as a ruler. These depictions were carved in a secret chamber area and in which various Asiatics were depicted bearing gifts and some were in prostrated positions. But at some point after the death of Hatshepsut’s daughter of whom Senemut was the nurse, his fate began to change. He soon disappeared from the courts of Egypt about four years before the death of Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III, the father of Amenophis II, took rule over Egypt. Archeologist today have excavated his tombs and areas around his chapel and have found drawings made of Senemut in those times of which confirms his genetic link to his Mittanian origins. The profile shows that he had a bump on his nose [a hooked nose], a typical Asiatic [European] trait. So even though Senemut, like many Asiatic-typed people of those early times, was born in the south of Egypt and might have been considered ‘a Mut’ or intermixed, some of his family member’s names and his later actions prove that his culture was Mitannian. In fact, it was made clearly evident by Senemut in those times that, even though his family was common when they became apart of Egypt, he was highly trained in a foreign script form of which he used. This was who Hatshepsut elevated, who became her closest advisor and of whom became so powerful that he had about eighty (80) titles to his name. But again when the Asiatics began to rebel, the Egyptians rose up and Senemut disappeared from the courts and his sarcophagus was demolished.

    Thutmosis III became known as the warrior king and fought against the Asiatics, Syria, Nubia, and etc. but soon, he began to change his views towards the Asiatic peoples. When Thutmosis III became old, it was at that time during the period of co-regency that he and his son Amenophis II went about Egypt and struck out the name of Hatshepsut from the records and built a wall around her obelisk because they blamed her for the problems in Egypt. However, Thutmosis III totally ignored the incredible suppressive actions that the Egyptian kings committed against Hatshepsut and the Black African-typed women even before those times. The Egyptian records clearly show that Mittanian women [Asiatic-typed women] were already apart of that court before Hatshepsut was even born. In fact, Senemut too, was already apart of the court when Hatshepsut was young. The earliest of Egyptians eventually dominated the original Theban people of the land and in so doing, they took dominance over the Theban priesthood. The Theban priesthood was always dominated by an inherited right that belongs to men, but when the Egyptians took control, for the first time ever, they allowed Ashteroth, the eastern religion of the White women to take root right there in Thebes.

    Under the religion of Ashteroth, the inheritance of a woman could take precedence and in this way women had the right to rule and her sons could become kings as well, so when it was convenient the Egyptians claimed their power in this manner, but when it was not convenient they would change it at will. In fact, one of the earlier wives of Thutmosis III, Satiah, had this ancestry but she and her son, the crown prince, died early with no other surviving heir. The name, ‘Satiah’ carries the mark of ‘a moon’, that reflects her Asiatic heritage and represents the word ‘Iah’ [ie. Yah or Ah]. The very founder of the 18th Dynasty, Ahmose also carries this ancestry as can be seen in his very name, ‘Ahmose’ [Ah-Mose] and therefore it was because of his mother, Ahmose-Nefertari, that would be the very woman that bares evidence the ancient priesthood of Thebes had been infiltrated with the eastern religion of the White woman. When Ahmose I’s son, Amenhotep I, took the throne, his name perpetuates the fact that these pharaohs, not only ruled as kings but as priest as well, as they took precedence over the ancient religion of the Nubian-Thebans and their worship of Amun. They copied the earlier 12th Dynasty kings and claimed the name ‘Amen’ but unlike the 12th Dynasty Mene-Thebans, they had no respect for the Nubian-Thebans and their ancient religion of ‘Amun’. When Ahmose I’s brother Kamose had died in the fight against the Asiatics, instead of the Theban priesthood taking dominance as they always did, Ahmose-Nefertari became the leader over the Theban priesthood until her son, Ahmose became of age and she continued to rule through her son until she died. But all of a sudden when Hatshepsut exercised this same right, it became inconvenient and therefore, due to the conflicts that came from the Asiatics, the Egyptians placed the blame on Black women! This was why the Creator God intervened! So when Bithia was later born, she marks a time in which the Egyptian men had began to welcome in another flood of White Asiatic-typed women into Egypt and in their courts and totally disrespected the Black African-typed women…again.

    Therefore, this evil disregard for Black women byway of the Egyptian pharaoh Amenophis II and other Egyptians was so profound that they had no problem taking little Syrian baby males and other ethnic babies away from their Black mothers and killing them. Even though Amenophis II was the son of a ‘Black’ Egyptian woman named Merytre-Hatshepsut, he had no problem with his hatred against Black women because of his father’s actions as well. His father the warrior king Thutmosis III, married Merytre-Hatshepsut after the death of his earlier wives. In his youth, Thutmosis III was initially married to the daughter of Hatshepsut named Neferure, but she died early around the age of eleven and then he married his second wife of whom was born from a nurse in the court. His second wife, Satiah’s name was then carved over top of some earlier artifacts that had originally belonged to Neferure. But Satiah and her son also died and without a surviving heir and so, Thutmosis III married the ‘Black’ woman named Merytre-Hatshepsut, a woman of the land of whom gave birth to Amenophis II and a number of other children as well, and she outlived Amenophis II to become a dowager. But after his marriage to Merytre-Hatshepsut, Thutmosis III began to bond with Asiatic-typed women that he had brought into his courts and therefore, it was due to the influence of these strange White women that these Egyptians began to justify their hatred against their own Black women even in their courts. Therefore in his old age, Thutmosis III and his son Amenophis II went around Egypt during this period of co-regency and carved out the name of Hatshepsut from the records and eventually even the mother of Amenophis II, Merytre-Hatshepsut was also rejected and disgraced. This would be the significance of the life of Moses and his relationship to his mother Jochebed, his adoptive mother Bithia, and the Ethiopian wife he later clung to named Zipporah. They were just three of so many other Black African-typed women that had been severely persecuted and suppressed down under those Black kings, other Egyptians, and their White women due to the set up of a White Supremacist system in Africa during those ancient times.

    Her name is sometimes written as Sit-Iah or Sat-Iah. Her name means "daughter of
    Iah", where Iah is a moongod. This is the same deity referred to in names like Ahmose.
    Iah (or Yah) is associated with the god Thoth as well. Sitiah was the daughter of the
    chief royal nurse Ipu and an unknown father.

    The Egyptians sent trading missions to Punt, a region of East Africa that was rich in
    gold, resins, ebony, blackwood, ivory and wild animals, including monkeys and
    baboons. THEY ALSO WENT IN SEARCH OF SLAVES. The best-documented mission
    was sent during the reign of Hatshepsut. Scenes from these expeditions are illustrated
    on her funerary temple at Deir el-Bahari, near the Valley of the Kings.

    The expedition set out in her name with five ships, each measuring seventy feet (21
    m) long, and with several sails; each ship accommodated 210 men, …in relief at Deir
    el-Bahri, which is famous for its unflattering depiction of the Queen of Punt.

    Another Reference on, Amenophis II:

    A stela from this pharaoh's final years highlights his openly contemptuous attitude towards
    non-Egyptians. The document, which dates to "Year 23 IV Akhet [day] 1, the day of the
    festival" of Amenhotep II's accession to power, is a copy of a personal letter which the king
    composed himself to Usersatet, his viceroy of Kush (Nubia). [41] In it, Amenhotep II reminded
    Usersatet of their military exploits together in Syria and proceeds to criticise the way this official
    conducted his office as Viceroy.[42] Amenhotep writes:

    Copy of the order which His Majesty wrote himself, with his own hand, to the viceroy Usersatet. His Majesty was in the [royal] Residence...he spent a holiday sitting and drinking. Look, this order of the king is brought to you...who are in faraway Nubia, a hero who brought booty from all foreign countries, a charioteer...you (are) master of a wife from Babylon and a maidservant from Byblos, a young girl from Alalakh and an old woman from Arapkha. Now, these people from Tekshi (Syria) are worthless--what are they good for? Another message for the viceroy: Do not trust the Nubians, but beware of their people and their witchcraft. Take this servant of a commoner, for example, whom you made an official although he is not an official whom you should have suggested to His Majesty; or did you want to allude to the proverb: 'If you lack a gold battle-axe inlaid with bronze, a heavy club of acacia wood will do'? So, do not listen to their words and do not heed their messages!" [43]

    Usersatet was so impressed (or fearful) of Amenhotep's message that he ordered a copy of it to be
    engraved on a stela "that was once [located] at the Second Cataract [in Nubia] and is now in Boston." [44]
