    White House sits on Black roots


    By ALTON H.MADDOX, JR.

    Gov. Eugene Talmadge ordered public schools to remove any books referencing a Black person. This order was signed on September 11,1941.It would predate the disaster at the World Trade Center by 60 years. Talmadge was a dye-in-the-wool white supremacist who encouraged white terrorism against Blacks. He was Georgia's "Adolph Hitler." By the time I had graduated from Central High School, Blacks were finally able to learn about Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver. Some teachers would cross the line and talk about a few non-threatening Blacks. Many public school systems were forbidden to name a school after a Black person. In many Georgia counties, Black students could only graduate from training schools. "Training School" appeared on diplomas. These diplomas revealed the dual purpose of public education. Whites could be educated. Blacks could only respond to training. I was fortunate. My mother owned a personal collection of Black history books in addition to a collection of Black literature. In addition, I developed a fondness for military history and military science. These books gave me an understanding of a militarized country. Howard University broadened my educational horizon. There were teachers like Chancellor Williams and Nathan Hare. Students, like Stokely Carmichael and H. Rap Brown, officially or unofficially, attended Howard. There was a Black revolution in the 1960s. Against this backdrop, I am surprised that most Blacks believe that Sen. Barack Obama will become the nation's first Black president. For me, this myth was exploded in the 1960s with J.A. Rodgers' "Five Negro Presidents." These presidents arose under the U.S. Constitution.

    There is also a sixth Black president. Moreover, John Hanson, a Moor, was the nation's first president. His presidency arose under the Articles of Confederation, which preceded the Constitution. When the Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation, the prior seven presidents were erased from United States history. The Iroquois Confederacy enabled this country to move from the Articles of Confederation to the U.S. Constitution. Five Indian nations, centered in upstate New York, had developed the system of federalism, which would give legs to this nation's legal and economic blueprint. Federalism divides legal authority between a strong central government and the states. The "Founding Fathers" were xenophobic and prejudiced. Racism is a separate question. They framed a system of white supremacy and misogyny to govern a relatively diverse nation. These men were ergophobic. They would balance race against necessary talent to propel the nation forward. Meritocracy gave rise to Andrew Hamilton, this nation's banking and government architect, and Thomas Jefferson, architect of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson said, "Science is my passion; politics, my duty." George Washington and Jefferson were Masons. Hamilton became the nation's first treasury secretary on September 11,1789.He also founded the Bank of New York and the New York Evening Post, among other contributions. President Woodrow Wilson described Hamilton as a "very great man, but not a great American." Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that Obama is not a "real American." Divorce was expensive in the British Crown. Rachel Faucette, Alexander Hamilton's mother, who was an octoroon, had been married to Johann Michael Lavien. He was reportedly a Jew, but he disowned it. Before this divorce was finalized, she had entered into a "common law" relationship with James Hamilton. Alexander Hamilton was born on January 11,1755,on the island of Nevis. His "illegitimacy" barred him from receiving Anglican instruction. Thus, he had no formal schooling in the West Indies. Instead, he was tutored, individually, by Sephardic Jews who had escaped persecution in Brazil and also by his French Hugenot mother. Hamilton was bilingual.

    Jefferson and Hamilton were the twin pillars of George Washington's presidency. While Washington was the wealthiest man in the United States, he needed the brainiest men to shape the nation's future. Washington had an appreciation for talent. Hamilton was his treasury secretary and Jefferson was his secretary of state. This would prove to be a powder keg awaiting a match. They were both hiding a secret, and they harbored diametrically opposed political and economic philosophies. This led them to father adversarial political parties. In modern parlance, Hamilton advocated federalism and Jefferson pushed states' rights. Jefferson enslaved many Africans. Hamilton was an abolitionist. Hamilton favored a central bank. Jefferson opposed it. Jefferson would tie Aaron Burr in the Electoral College for the presidency. Congress would favor Jefferson. Burr served as vice president under Jefferson until he resigned in 1804 to seek the governorship of New York. Believing that Hamilton was badmouthing him, Burr challenged him to a duel on July 11,1804.A fatal bullet killed Hamilton in Weehawken, New Jersey. This assassination killed Burr's political career. Jefferson killed two birds with one stone. Outwardly, Jefferson gave to this country all the appearances of being racist, especially in his book "Notes on the State of Virginia." His contradictory relationship with Sally Hemmings, an enslaved African, is puzzling if you consider that Jefferson had "Black blood." His verdict on Blacks caused a verbal war between himself and Benjamin Banneker on Black intelligence. This country needed Banneker to complete the survey of Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C., is called "Chocolate City" for more reasons than its demographics. Anthony Browder, an esteemed Egyptologist, calls it the "Nile on the Potomac." The nation's capital was designed by Banneker and it is rooted in Kemetic architecture and symbols. His story is universally taught in schools. It is based on mythology, and it accommodates white supremacy. African lives were devalued in the Constitution. His story has not only enslaved Africans psychologically, but it has also imprisoned whites psychologically as well. Otherwise, the six Black presidents before Obama would never have had to deny their African ancestry.

    Even Obama has to fib when he is asked about his feelings on being the first Black president of the United States. He is only promoting a racial fallacy. St. John 8:32: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Obama must ensure that his keys to the White House are more than the second Emancipation Proclamation. Freedom and emancipation are not synonyms.

    After South Africa ended apartheid, the country established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Apartheid in South Africa was not as protracted nor as intense as slavery and Jim Crow in the United States, which have given rise to genocide and mentacide.

    Descendants of enslaved Africans are in dire need of a truth commission in the United States to declassify the political, economic and cultural contributions of Africans to the country's formation. Truth will militate against Obama fostering racial fallacies, myths and stereotypes for political advantage. Without a truth commission, history could repeat itself. Black men were appointed or elected to Congress, a governor- ship and other state offices after the ratification of the Reconstruction amendments. These elections only
    heightened racial violence. White terrorism would accompany the presence of Blacks in political offices. The KKK and law enforcement agencies were in its vanguard. There was no truth commission, and white supremacists continued to exploit racial fallacies, myths and stereotypes and to ignite white terrorism. This nation is still divided in 2008, with whites holding the

    balance of political and economic power, at the very least. Abraham Lincoln may have been able to emancipate the "slaves," but he was unable to free them. It will be another 40 years before the "minorities" in the United States become the majority and, afterward, it will take a racial coalition to stamp out white supremacy. Truth is a beginning.

    Some food for thought...


    DEVELOPMENT


    Although the beginnings of civilization of each country vary in time, the fundamental factors which gave impetus to each country to awaken and embark on the road to progress to reach their present level of development, are those qualities which are enshrined in the nature of man, namely desire and fortitude.

    The partner who places his own short-range ambitions ahead of the long-range interests of the partnership has embarked on a course which will ultimately result in the dissolution of the partnership itself.

    It is by the understanding of past difficulties that we can bequeath fundamental guidance which would be of pride to the coming generations we therefore urge our people to struggle and to make sacrifices for those things which will enable them to ameliorate their conditions of life and leave a richer heritage. Social Development

    Lasting progress can only be built on deep and enduring foundations. When a solid foundation is laid, if the mason is able and his materials good, a strong house can be built.

    To develop oneself, one has to develop one's own initiative and perseverance - a man has to strive in order to grow. Let us work out our own programmes in all fields - political, economic, social and military. Man's contributions which live to influence the life and progress of posterity, are the most permanent monuments that can ever be created. We must become increasingly willing to analyze our efforts, to experiment, to admit our failures as we take pride in our successes.

    And now we got a revolution
    Cause i see the face of things to come
    Yeah, your Constitution
    Well, my friend, its gonna have to bend
    Im here to tell you about destruction
    Of all the evil that will have to end.

    Some folks are gonna get the notion
    I know theyll say im preachin hate
    but if i have to swim the ocean
    well i would just to communicate
    its not as simple as talkin jive
    the daily struggle just to stay alive

    Singin about a revolution
    because were talkin about a change
    its more than just evolution
    well you know you got to clean your brain
    the only way that we can stand in fact
    is when you get your foot off our back
    "Revolution"...Nina Simone

    This list is based upon the so called Black Ancestry in them. I however have my own feedback concerning who is black and who ain't. I for one regardless of ancestry can't see myself claiming no one that ain't trynna claim me. Even now we have over 20,000 black people in America who are passing for white. However, here is the link of them that you requested even though to my knowledge it is incomplete. I guess they didn't want to count Hansen because at that time the U.S. was known as the Continental Congress where George Washington was a General serving under him.
