Shemitic-Hamitic Ethnic and Cultural Relations-A Theory Regarding Amazons

Source: The Amazons: Chapter X: Conclusion (Sacred Texts) 1910 A.D. From the source, "But there can be little doubt that this second ceremonial is an innovation; originally the boy did not return after the sundown anointing. In other cases, it is over certain stones away from the dairies that either butter-milk or clarified butter is poured, and we may conjecture that these were altars for human sacrifices, as the anointing is never observed when calves or bullocks are sacrificed either for purposes of augury or as offerings to the ghosts of the departed. Ghee was commonly poured over sacrificial victims,…

1841 A.D. Commentary on Jews From Judea Being Black on the Coast of Africa

1841 A.D. Commentary on Jews From Judea Being Black on the Coast of Africa

Source: A Text Book of the Origin and History, &c. &c. of the Colored People (L. Skinner, printer) 1841 A.D. Note: Page 96 of the source. This source confirms what we already know, but this post investigates the source from a different perspective. The person who stated that descendants of Jews from Judea being on the African Coast and that they are black came from James William Charles Pennington. Who was this brillant individual? He was an enslaved person in America who escaped slavery at the age of 19 and became the first black student at Yale. His book is…

Source: A General Collection of the Best and Most Interesting Voyages and Travels in All Parts of the World: Many of which are Now First Translated Into English : Digested on a New Plan ; Illustrated with Plates, Volume 16 (Bavarian State Library) 1814 A.D. This source is a paragon for understanding the polarizing view of the "Hebrewisms" of Africa. Meaning, the individual of this source isn't willing to ponder that perhaps the "natives" of West Africa are indeed connected to ancient Judaism but he acknowledges other scholars have done so. Scholars from various time frames and regions have long noted…

Black Man with “Mass of Hair” and “Red Eyes”-El-Kahina had “Dark Skin”, “Mass of Hair”, and Her Eyes Turned “Red”

Source: Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya (The Life of the Prophet Muhammad), Volume II. (Garnet Publishing Ltd) 2000 A.D. Note: Page 211 of the source. Note: Page 261 of the source. Note: Page 229 of the source. This source reveals yet again the demonization of black people in the Middle Ages. However, this source can also be used to confirm the blackness of the El-Kahina. Like this black man being described in this part of the text, El-Kahina had 'dark skin' and 'mass of hair'. The only difference is that her eyes turned 'red' when she was angry but nevertheless both were had…
