The idea that North Africa is originally Arab is one that
is most annoying and painful for every conscious black African. It is an insult
to now attribute black African heritage and history to Arabian invaders who
invaded Africa and took over that region.
The regions of Libya and the South of Algeria still have
strong African features that have survived over time.
In this article, we will provide answers and evidence which
shows that certain parts of North Africa only recently became white. We will
lay emphasis on the Maghreb and Libya.
Before we continue, it is important to know that the
original and natural color of entire Africa is "BLACK." Nothing
more nothing less. Every other white human in Africa today came from
Europe-Asia. So below we are going to uncover how and when white people and
cultures entered Africa and became dominant in North Africa.
The Whitening of our
Before the invasion of Egypt by various nations of white
people, there was a little group of white people who were said to have been
sacrificed by Nare Mari, who was the first pharaoh of the unified Egypt. This
was in 3300 BC. This was deduced from the examination of the palette below.
Although this conclusion was not agreed on unanimously by scholars and
Another appearance of white elements in Egypt was in 1300
BC, when a white prisoner of war was brought to Egypt, under the reign of
The third appearance of the white people, which was the
beginning of the end for that glorious civilization, was invasions by the
Assyrian, Roman, Greek, and Persians (Iranian). These invasions which lasted
for hundreds of years forced the black population of Egypt to flee to other
parts of Africa. The blacks who refused to flee, where ruled over by invaders
and then cross-bred over generations. Those who were cross-bred are the present-day
Coptic of Egypt.
The last wave of Egypt's whitening was when the Arabs
besieged Egypt in 639, and this was followed by three centuries of domination
by the Ottoman (Turkish) empire.
The Whitening of
Libya and Maghreb
The first-time white people were seen and described in Libya
was around 1300 BC. It was during the time of Pharaoh Suti Mery-n-Ptah (Seti
I). The white people were referred to as "Tamehu."
It is recorded that under the reign of Ramesu Hakayunu
(Ramses III) around 1200 BC, a large population and army of white invaders were
pushed back in successive battles from Egypt to Libya. Those were the invaders
who laid siege to the black population of Libya.
According to world renowned historian Cheikh Anta Diop,
there were a black group of people called Tenehus (also known as Lebus) who
were living in Libya, before the white invaders (Tamehus), arrived. The Lebus
are said to probably be the ancestors of the Lebus tribe in Senegal.
The Whitening of The
Black Carthaginians In the Maghreb
The ancient kingdom of carthage, which is now present-day
Tunisia, was originally black, but today, it is dominantly white, inhabited by
Arabs. The Carthaginians ruled the Maghreb between 814 and 147 BC. This was
according to skeleton analysis conducted by European anthropologists.
In his confirmation of the original black population of Carthage
(Tunisia), French anthropologist Stephane Gsell, the director of Alger museum
had this to say: ... the anthropological analysis
of the skeletons found in Carthage proves that there is no racial or ethnic
unity... the Semitic type (white Berber or Arab) characterized by an oval face,
an aquiline thin nose, was not found in Carthage. On the other hand, the type
with a more stretched out body than the legs is common to the skeletons found
in Lebanon and Tyr (it corresponds to Phoenicians who were also Blacks)... the
majority of the Carthaginian population was negroid".
The skeletons of ancients Carthaginians that were found in
their capital city Tyr in present day Lebanon and their port of Syracuse in
Italy, show that they were purely black.
But despite these evidences of ancient black populations,
one is left to wonder how those areas are now dominantly white.
The answer is clear through the white race invasion and
stealing of land and structures of ancient black civilizations.
The Maghreb (Tunisia,
Morocco, Algeria) was Core Black
After the war of invasion between the Romans and Carthage,
the Romans won the king Hannibal and took the Maghreb. When they entered the
Maghreb, they found so many blacks in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco who were
called "Moors", and so named the region Mauretania. The Greek and
Latin word meaning "strictly black" is "Mauros/Maures". It
therefore means that "Mauretania" is used to refer to a "Black
people's country". It is probable that Morocco is also derived from the
same root word "Moor".
In Libya, the black nomadic people were names Barbari by the
Romans, because of their robbery and barbaric tendencies. The Romans and
Greeks, in Libya, described the heavy presence of black people with scared and
painted faces. They wore braids and practiced totemism, and had a visibly matriarchal
The description by the Greeks and Romans showed that black
people owned and lived in the Maghreb.
Also documents from around the same period in human history
described the presence of a small "Ethiopian" nation which inhabited
from Tripoli to Tunis. The word "Ethiopian" means "burnt faces
or so black", and was derived from a Greek work 'Aethiopus.' This word was
originally used to refer to the blacks of Sudan. And this is proof that there
originally blacks in Libya. But today, that region of Africa has been whitened,
as a result of Arab invasion over hundreds of years, forcing the original
dwellers to leave or cross-bred.
The word Barbari was transformed to Berber by the Arabs when
they entered Barbari and Mauretania. The word Berber was then used to refer to
everyone in Libya without differentiating their color. So, the word Berber
before then referred to a predominantly black people. Majority of the black
people of the region formed the troops that entered Spain in 711 BC for the
occupation of the Iberian Peninsula for 781 years.
The testimonies of the Europeans at that time in history,
goes to buttress these facts.
Alfonso X, the Spanish king, also known as "the
wise" had this to say about the invasion: "All the Moorish soldiers
were dressed with silk and black wool that had been forcibly acquired... their
black faces were like pitch and the most handsome of them was like (black as) a
A song of a French Epic tale about the battle between the
Franks and the Africans in Northern Spain in the 8th century, describes the appearance
of the African invaders: "At their
head rides the Saracen Abisme [Abyssinian]: no worse criminal rides in that company,
stained with the marks of his crimes and great treasons, lacking he faith of
God, Saint Mary's son, And he is black, as black as melted pitch... Ethiope
(Burnt faces/Africa in ancient Greek), a curse land indeed; The blackamoors
from there are in his keep, Broad in the nose they are flat in ear, Fifty
thousand and more in company... When Roland sees that unbelieving race, those
hordes and hordes blacker than the blackest ink - no shred of white on them
except their teeth..."
So, it was the Europeans who gave us the detailed
description of the original people of the Maghreb. It is estimated that there
were 3.5 million Blacks in Spain and Portugal at the end of the Muslim
occupation. Their present descendants are called Moore, Maurice, Moreau, Morin,
Moreno, Murray, Maurois etc.
So, the question now is: If the original people of the was
black up till the 8th century, then how did that region become purely white?
The presence of Arabs explains this, but not as much as the last two phenomenon
which we will discuss below.
White Slavery And
The 2002 Ukraine Encyclopedia gives an estimated 2.5 million
white people who were deported from Ukraine, Belarus, and Moscow region between
the 15th and 18th century. With the knowledge of the white slave trade by
Muslims starting in the 8th century involving a larger area, it is most likely
that the outcome would be more than 2.5million.
The enslavement of white Europeans - Germanic and Slavic in
particular (hence the word "slave"), by Muslim Arabs, is one side of
history that is been kept secret. White men were castrated by European Jews in
Verdun in France and deported from Venice. But this part of history is hidden
by an agreement between Europeans and Arabs. It is possible that more white
Europeans were enslaved at that era by the Muslim world, more than the black
Africans of the Maghreb.
As a fall-out of Muslim/Arab control of the Maghreb, white
people cross-bred with black Berbers to produce those the world calls Berbers
The presence of the Ottoman empire in the Maghreb also
intensified the whitening of the region and people. This explain why till
today, there are still African elements, European and Semitic (Arab) in the
In conclusion, just like the whitening of Egypt, the Maghreb
and Libya, who were initially black, were bleached wit the initial white
Libyans, Srabs, Turkish and also the white slaves.
