    • Something I read and just had to share. I did not want to remove any part of it. I believe in God and His creation.

      Black Woman, Original Woman:
      By Messenger Elijah Muhammad

      The Woman is the natural producer of nations. She is more precious than a treasured black pearl, found deep within the Oceans waters. It is a most happy diver, who discovers such a rare example of art and wealth, and beauty; however there are no comparison of the black woman with gold of the mines, and pearls of the sea...Gold and precious pearls are discovered; they yet exist but the knowledge Is not known to so many of of us, all praise is due to the Almighty God, Allah; In the manner in which I compare the gold and pearl to me, and the Discoverer, Almighty God, Allah.  

      The Original Woman
      The original woman is the Asiatic black woman. Mother of Civilization, Queen of the Planet earth. the most prized possession of Allah. The most beautiful of the completion of Allah’s creation.

      Love it

        • Asiatic? Hmmm. If it wasn’t for Africa, Asia would look a lot different than it does.

          I’d rather go with Dr. Ben’s words:

              “This is but a mere feeble effort in saying: Without you, African/Black mother, there would have been no us—African/Black fathers, sons and daughters.  Do we need to say any more African/Black mothers, our own true goddesses!  Let us praise you to the highest, telling the world about your righteousness.  Let us tell the entire universe about your sacredness African/Black woman.”

             —Yosef A.A. ben-Jochannan

          Now we‘re talking!

        • We are all originally from Africa. I learned that in my Sociology class. As people migrated north, Asia, Europe and etc. Their complexion changed based on their exposure to the sun.
