Booker T. Washington said; “Everybody on earth should have answers to the following questions; who am I ? Where is the world am I ? How I get here? Where am I going?"
I was on usual intellectual debate with some of fellow Sudanese journalists on facebook discussing the current Sudanese issue of mass rapes in Tabit in region of Darfur. I wrote; " the rapes in Darfur are encouraged by provocative speech of President Omer Albashir himself; who said that if Darfurian woman is raped by his Arab tribe Al-Jaali, she ( Darfurian woman) should feel proud, because she has been raped by the best race in Sudan". Then I added that if you think that you are a superior race came to purify Africans whether with your religion, color or culture your Arab race is not needed in Africa let alone Sudan.
The brother and sister who were much Arabized and reached the limits of their minds; which I think are full of porridge and they wrote; " why do you hate and talk ill about Arabs and they are the one who brought you from jungles, educated you; civilized you and brought you in the light?".
I was not surprised because, this is what I and they were taught at Sudanese schools and they responded with what they were told. The so called current history of Sudan which is written by the invaders is not a history but his story about indigenous people of Sudan. They wrote it on their own perspectives. For example they taught us in schools that all kingdoms in Sudan were found by Arabs who entered to Africa through Sinai in Ancient Kemet or Ethiopia of today Egypt in 636 AD; and then arrived to Sudan as traders in 652AD according to the authentic records. Meanwhile the records on Pyramid text in Sudan predated Ahraham or Ephrahim or Ibrahim, Moses or Moshee more than 25 southlands of years. Even the step Pyramid of Sakara built by the King named Nerma or Aha is older than Adam and Eve who according to the writings of the three religions have only, 6000 years on earth, the Christian said they have 4300 years, whereby the step Pyramid of Sakara goes back to at least 2o,000 years which means that our grand father Pharaoh Aha is older than Adam and Eve. The chronology of the rulers of Egypt and Sudan since 25,000 years up to 1981 when Husni Mubarak took over Egypt is in records. Everything is well recorded; nothing is lost but only confusion was created meant to erase our African memory by hiding the records. Therefore; all African enemies show only the Dark side of African history that is connected with slavery only. They will never mention African rule of Spain for 700 years, they never mention that Africa civilized Europe three times and is well documented by the Greeks who civilized Europe after Africans educated them. Alexander the Greek Son of Philippe of Macedonia, who turned to be called Alexander the "great" bears witness that after his invasions to Thebes he brought later Greek Philosophers to study there and he translated all Egyptian books in to their own language. Read Black Athena by Dr. Martin Bernal and destruction of black civilization by Chancellor Williams.
I was reading the translated ancient Ethiopian or Nubia ( today Egypt and Sudan) the book of the dead or the book of coming forth by day and night; and I came across seven principles of MAAT, which in fact are about 20, 000 years old or more. In that book there are set of values that were necessary for black people of the Nile to construct their lives in their own image.
These translated set of principles are seven: TRUTH, JUSTICE, RIGHTOUSNESS, ORDER, BALANCE, HARMONEY AND RECIPROCITY. In addition there were 10 virtues of MAAT that reads; CONTROL OF THOUGHT, CONTROL OF ACTION, DEVOTION OF PURPOSE, HAVING FAITH IN THE ABILITY OF MY TEACHER TO TEACH ME THE TRUTH, HAVING FAITH IN MYSELF TO ASSIMILATE THE TRUTH, HAVING FAITH IN MY SELF TO WIELD THE TRUTH, BEING FREE FROM RESENTMENT UNDER THE EXPERIENCE OF PERSECUTION, BEING FREE FROM RESENTMENT UNDER THE EXPERIENCE OF WRONG, CULTIVATING THE ABILITY TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG AND CULTIVATING THE ABILITY TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN REAL AND UNREAL.
These set of principles were enough to make us as the inheritors of the Blackman of the River Nile to love more than to hate others. Black people are the fathers and mothers of humanity and the humanity started in Africa. Not only that; but we the people of the Nile; were the first to write on earth the symbolic language called heliography, whereby Ethiopian language alphabets other languages were derived from.
The UNESCO and many scholars; approved with evidences that the people of the Nile and Africans in generals are the first to have scripts; we have coffin text, pyramids text, Ta Seiti script found in Kustul Northern Sudan, the first medical text by Queen Hatshubsut, the first mathematical papyrus ( the paper; we were the first to write on paper, not the Chinese) is African; its 1500 years old before Christ, its documented by Edmond Smith, we have Merowitic script that is 200 pages which is not broken the code yet and the youngest we have is Mandingo script.
The first person to write in Europe was the Greek man by the name of Homer in 833 BCE; at that time our African heritage reached to it zenith and declined. According to Greeks mythologies, all Greek Gods including Zeus and Apollo came from Ethiopia and also most of its philosophers if not all, studied in Africa in Ancient Ethiopia today Egypt whom Homer himself described them as burned skins or black as coal. People of today Sudan Ta Nehisi and Egypt Ta Merry were like people of North Korea and former two Germanys the same black ethnic group.
Nevertheless; the end of Arab Ignorance era as describe in Islam, was at the beginning of 650 AD, which was yesterday; and at that time all Pyramids were built by our African ancestors from the Nile, whereby they used mathematics, geometry and astrology. The step Pyramid was estimated to have been built in 4100 BCE, let alone the recent discovery of Ta Seiti in Kustul by the Americans in North Sudan which is 3000 years older than the 72 Pyramids in Egypt.
I say the ignorant can't educate the civilized person; if how people are civilized is measured by means of concrete or hard evidences! We have 350 Pyramids in Sudan or Nubia which both means black, and we have 72 Pyramids in Egypt or ancient Ethiopia; built by our black ancestors, before Ibrahim, Moses ( Moses was Sudanese born in 1346 BCE in a city called Goshen in Northern Sudan, his ten commandments were copied from Egyptian book of the dead or also called the book of coming forth by day and night; these ten commandments 42 negative confessions Moses copied the above ten and left 32).
At UNICCO conference in 1974 in Cairo; the two African scholars Proff. Cheik Anta Diop from Senegal and Proff. Theodore Obenga from Congo presented linguistics, archeological and biological and anthropological evidences, whereby they defeated 42 two global scholars brought by UNESCO; the Egyptian cultural Minister at that time named Abdul Mukhtar was shocked and jumped and said even if the mummies tested black they were white; as the same case today with white Egyptian Egyptologists who say; the mummies are black because they smeared mud on their skins; whereby they ignored melanin and DNA findings just to satisfy their ego.
Proff. Diop of Carbon Lab in Dakar tested the mummified bodies and he found the density of the Melanin in mummies in derma and epee-derma recorded %99; which means the pharaohs were jet black. Some may wonder how come all Pharaohs were color black? the answer would be even if they were few colored among them, they were indigenous African people; because black and black can produce any color but white and white can't produce a black color; in biologically the dominant genes can produce recessive genes, "the albino children everywhere in Africa" ; but recessive or weak genes can't produce the dominant genes; also having mixed pharaohs in middle kingdom would also be true since the foreigners continued invading Kemet Ethiopia or Egypt and continuously repelled by the indigenous populations.
Hence we hated no body and still hate no one as indigenous Sudanese; but we hate those arrogant behaviors and venomous attacks on us and our African heritage in Sudan whether through educational system, media or other ways around.
I remember an interview on Egyptian TV with Egyptian actress named Lila Alawi; when she was asked that there were rumors; that she was going to marry famous black Egyptian football player at that time, a Nubian brother named Ahmed Al Kass; she replied " how can I marry a crow". The same arrogant behaviors are repeated today by so called Sudanese Arabs towards indigenous population of Sudan like using a word slave (Abb) for black skin people.
Therefore; the knowledge about Sudanese indigenous or Nubians or Pharaoh or Cushitic or Ethiopian people; call them whatever you want; is politicized and vast to be spoken back for southlands of years of its making. The colonization of any group starts with colonization of information about them; or it’s called the erasing of our African memories, until we reached to the stage that we thought we had no even a history to the extent that some deemed we are half humans.
I would close up with the words of my master teacher Dr. Ivan Van Sertima who said; " The major history is never truly lost, the history is only lost when we lose it. If we allowed ourselves to forget it then its truly lost. Nothing is lost that is contained consciously, even that is drawn; that we have forgotten it and we thought it’s lost; we found out that the scattered world of Africa could be collected together again".
