Black is an adjective: which is a descriptive word, and not a noun according to proper grammatical rules. A noun is a person, place, or thing; therefore a person cannot "be" black. Black is defined as gloomy; pessimistic; dismal (a black future); sullen or hostile (black words); harmful; evil; wicked (a black heart); indicating censure or disgrace (a black mark on a persons record); marked by disaster or misfortune (black areas of drought); African-American; to lose consciousness or memory temporarily. Black according to science means death. Black is also a color, and colored means anything that has been painted, stained, varnished, or dyed; therefore a person cannot be black. Black and colored have all been used to name the olive hued person or their descendants. Colored, now somewhat old fashioned, is often offensive. However it is still used, such as in the title of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. In the late 1950’s black began to replace Negro and is still widely used and accepted. Negro is a name given to a river in West Africa by Moors because it contains black water (the Negro river is located in what is today called Brazil in South America). The first use of "negro" to describe a human can be traced back to 1441, when Portuguese kidnappers operating below the Senegal River used the term "negro" to designate their captives. Slaves were fallen under the primary designations of black and negro, which are references to persons legally transformed into "property." The official utilization of legal terminology played a significant role in the oppression of Moors in America. Official nomenclature illustrated a person's legal and social status in the U.S.A.

We truly have to come to grasp that African American is not a nationality. African American is a misnomer for the Moors of America. If you observe the order of the United Nations, you will see no African representative or nationality. You may see Uganda; Morocco; Egypt; Sudan, Algeria etc. Africa is composed of many nations. If you were to meet a person from the Sudan, he will not accept the misnomer African American, because he is conscious of the fact that he is Sudanese American. If you were to meet a person from Egypt he would never accept the misnomer African American even though Egypt is in Africa. African American, black, colored, and Negro are all manufactured nomenclatures for the people (so-called blacks) who were stripped of their nationality in 1774. The true nationality of the socalled black person of America is Moorish American. The Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by U.N. states, "…every person has a right to a nationality; no one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his or her nationality." The covenant of the League of Nations (predecessor to the United Nations) stated that, "…historically, revocation or denial of legal nationality had often been a tactical preliminary to deprivation of rights."

If you do not know yourself then you leave the authority to someone else to identify you, and through time you will be accustomed to that label. When you allow someone else to name you, you have essentially given him or her the power to define you!

WHAT SHALL WE CALL HIM?

Moorish Literature

So often our various journalists find trouble in selecting the proper name for the Moorish American. Some say "Negro," another will brand him "Race Man," still another will call him "Afro-American," and then come "Colored," "Dark American," "Coon," "Shine," "The Brethren," and your "Folks." It is indeed a hard matter to find something suitable for the various occasions where a title needs to be used. Is it that these people have no proper name? Did they have a National name when first brought to these shores in the early part of the Seventeenth Century? If so, what was it? Did not the land from which they were forced have a name? It now appears a good idea for those whose duty it is to write for the various journals to find out what the National Name of the forefathers of these people was.

Also look into the history of the founders of civilization and see who they were and where they stood in the building of the present civilization. Probably two hours in an up-to-date library would serve to relieve the strain on our men of letters. When the occasion presents itself for a title for these people. The matter of the various names given to these twenty-two million people with all colors of every race of the globe was an act of European psychology. They gave him a name, then defined it as something inferior to theirs, "White," they defined as a color of purity; "Black," they say represents everything of evil. The "Negro," as they were called in this nation, have no nation to which they might look with pride. Their history starts with the close of the Civil war or more properly with his being forced to serve some one else. Thus he is separated from the illustrious history of his forefathers who were the founders of the first civilization of the Old World. This matter should be looked into with a hope of correcting it.
