Where Was God During Slavery

By Sicebise Msengana











The same place he was when he drowned millions of men, women and children with a globe flood in Noah's days. The same place he was when he punished the entire human race because of the actions of two sinful individuals -- Adam and Eve.

Science Disproves The Flood of Noah

I'm a science lover and I am intrigued by how the universe works. For the past three years, I've made observations based on scientific evidence -- factual evidence supported by scientific discoveries.

I'm 100% Xhosa and San-and Proud of it

By Sicebise Msengana










I'm 100% Afrikan. So no cave DNA for me and my people --Xhosa and San. Scientists believe that Bantu peoples migrated from West Africa 5000 years ago and arrived in Southern Africa more than 2000 years ago.

A 4 Step Guide to Africa: Africans according to Whites and Asians

By Sicebise Msengana











#1 RACIAL THEORY: “We hate Africans because they are an inferior race."

“Whether we like it or not, Africans are lazy, stupid and inherently violent animals destined for perpetual slavery... .”—said white supremacists and Asian racists.

Summer Reading List 2016

It’s that time of the year when I get to read books until 3 a.m. The objective of preserving oneself and disintegrating enemy troops is the basis of military, economic, social, cultural and political principles.

Would you Trade your Soul in Exchange for Wealth and Fame?

By Sicebise Msengana

My rich uncle used to say 'I'm at a good place. Not emotionally... I'm at the bank to check my babies [money].' OK, he actually never said that.  But most people have an intimate attachment to money, that they would die without money. 

Try to imagine...

What Anti-racist whites should do to help

By Sicebise Msengana











'White people, collectively, DO NOT CARE about the TRUTH of what is being said, written, or broadcast about black people as long as the FOCUS stays on “what is wrong with black people” and the PRESSURE keeps black people on the self-defeating treadmill of proving to (CONVINCING) whites that blacks are not inferior'.-TrojanPam

I think one of the BIGGEST problems with white ‘anti-racism’ activism is the fact that race for white people is not a struggle they have to endure on a day-to-day basis unlike Africans. So to them, the discussion of ‘RACE’, gets them on a defensive mode and most white people literally IMPLY to the VICTIMS of racism/white supremacy—‘You’re the ones keeping racism alive.’

Love

Africa Belongs to Africans, Period

By Sicebise Msengana












Cape Town, South Africa: Africa has some of the best beaches on the planet. No wonder non-Africans , especially white people are busy drawing up emotional arguments such as 'Everyone is African or 'Africa is the origin of humanity', in a political bid to loot and take ownership of Africa under the guise of 'Oneness.'

Two Ways Africans can Reduce the Spread of HIV/AIDS in Their Communities

By Sicebise Msengana








“ Africa and Africans has succeeded in destroying our culture and traditional by accepting the effect of colonialism on the strong foundation that once held our fathers together...I believe that there is a supreme being and that as long as you believe in him no matter your religious difference or mode of worship things will work out for you, I PRAY GOD HELP AFRICA IN BELIEVING IN THEMSELVES ONE DAY." --Leopard Akande

I think it would be best to preserve some traditional African systems such as African-centred marriage, between an African man and African woman and abstinence. Africans see marriage as a sacred institution to procreate and build a strong family.

Face Our Fears Boldly

By Sicebise Msengana






I always see the self-hating attitudes towards Africa as coping mechanisms against the 500 year-old racist anti-African propaganda. People whose ancestors suffered slavery and social degradation developed certain survival traits to cope with their surroundings. The invention of races was one of the darkest moments in human history , W. E. B. Du Bois  makes the following observation: “There came a new doctrine of universal labor: mankind were of two sorts—the superior and the inferior; the inferior toiled for the superior; and the superior were the real men, the inferior half men or less.”


Escapist avenues may offer psychological comfort for many who feel burdened with African phenotype. Many of our people claim all these fancy identities that seem to be non-African e.g. Egyptian, Ethiopian, Moorish, 'Black' Indians, Hebrew Israelites etc., except for African to compensate for inferiority complex. Some Negro pseudo-intellectuals have tried to promote some false information and hate speech especially the Hebrew Israelite movement. These bigoted individuals and hate institutions have yet to produce carefully gathered, cross-checked and tested scientific evidence for those dubious claims. It is true that Europeans (Whites) have lied about our history, talents and capabilities as a people. Even W. E. B. Du Bois said “A system at first conscious and then unconscious of lying about history and distorting it to the disadvantage of the Negroids became so widespread that the history of Africa ceased to be taught, the color of Memnon was forgotten, and every effort was made in archaeology, history, and biography, in biology, psychology, and sociology, to prove the all but universal assumption that the color line had a scientific basis... .” But far stretched theories with no scientific research and hard evidence are just human imagination intended to allay fears and lull to a sense of security, perhaps, through making non-falsifiable statements such as the “White man enslaved, and detached us from our original self” or “Caucasians hid everything about us.” One American Hebrew Israelite said “because initially even the Europeans slave traders distinguished us from the Africans as a completely different nation of people!” It is also a catch-22 situation, where Africans are held responsible and hated for “selling their own people” or for the transatlantic slave trade that actually never happened according to “Black” Indians—but also for failing to  reach out to our people in America (didn’t they just say they are not African, then why should we Africans concern ourselves with non-African affairs?). It seems that we just can't win.

The white-owned media houses such as CNN and National Geographic always show negative stereotypes of Africa, no wonder the Diaspora Africans hate Africa. The Motherland is a psychological badge of shame for many people of the African descent. Thus, they hate themselves. You can't love yourself without loving Africa. Africa is negatively portrayed as a dying continent, with AIDS-infected hungry little kids, wars, child soldiers, cannibals and Stone Age tribal societies consisting of naked men and women chasing zebras and lions. From these racist and paternalistic lens, it can be overwhelming for those whose racial identity is a simply a qualifier for incarceration, police brutality, economic exploitation and political victimisation.
Malcolm X talked about three ways to independent thinking and nation building:

1) Wake up. Africans have been asleep for more than 500 years, and are sleeping tight even after centuries of bondage—slavery, colonialism and apartheid.

2) Clean up. It is the duty of every African to rid him/herself of the garbage and lies spread by the white man and oneself; Agyei Tyehimba asserts “Ironically, the most vulnerable people often are the easiest to con, swindle, and deceive, because they are so desperate for answers, solutions and ultimately liberation. This leaves considerable room for attention-seekers and sensationalist types to emerge... .” We may have con-artists and impostors among ourselves who claim to represent the truth. Personally, I doubt any religious proselytisers and these “conscious” types. It is great that we don’t have “conscious” freaks in Africa lurking to rob people for their hard earned money, save for religious folks and institutions.

 3) Stand up.  Africans must fight for their HUMAN RIGHTS by what ever means necessary! In self-defense, the primary  goal  is to destroy the enemy, but at the same time, it is self-preservation, because if the enemy is not destroyed, you will be destroyed. In face value, the white power structure looks  terrifying, but in reality, they are not so powerful. The white AmeriKLAN cops that gun down innocent unarmed Africans in the streets of America, that Europeans in Africa that are keeping stolen lands and white racists that  directly or indirectly perpetuate the system through thoughts and actions are nothing but cowards.

The Myth of African Deadbeat Fathers

Dr. Umar Johnson writes "You’ve heard the rumors, for they are everywhere, and although unproven, they still resonate as “facts” throughout much of American society. The untruth that Black men don’t want to care for their children has become a staple in American folklore. Even sadder is the fact that these rumors are not only postulated by the numerically dominant white majority of this country, but are actually created, maintained and reinforced by the Black community itself...."

Religion Has Been a Stumbling Block of Progress


By Sicebise Msengana

" when you do science, you have to put aside religion. You must exclude the divine from your theories about the world. Once you bring in the supernatural, you can explain anything, but none of your explanations can ever be confirmed, since you're using ideas that go beyond human sense"--Steven Weinberg

From its beginning religion has been a stumbling block against scientific developments. The claims made by religious fanatics are fallacious in many ways. Just because religious scientists did or still do scientific work has nothing to do with science. In fact, greatest scientists were and always irreligious and didn't bring science into religion (i.e. Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin).

Secularism: Scepticism Over The Supernatural Fantasies

By Sicebise Msengana












Predictions for the future:
In the years to come there will be a big evolution of religion. In the next 50-100 years, it won't be the religion we know like today. Just as there is a revolution in world religions. Take a look at Christianity, it is not what it used to be. Some of the teachings taught today would make the epistles and martyrs turn in their graves. For example, prosperity gospel that is used to cheat people of their hard earned money by promises of "divine blessings," faith healing and many other outlandish claims.

Years ago, I asked a person of faith, why doesn't God perform miracles as He used to do in ancient times. The answer was simple: "miracles have failed to convince people of God's love and grace.  Even if God performed miracles through his prophets, the emphasis today is put on people using faith to find and please God." A look at Islam, Take a look at Islam in its infancy. The religion was built on bloody conquests of the pagans. The Jihad or holy wars were fought in the name of Allah were means to spread the Muslim faith across the world.

But today one may find that there is a slight deviation from the original teachings of the Quran. Islam is becoming more tolerant and accepting particularly among the Western countries. Much of the Quran is interpreted metaphorically by many Islamic scholars. The same holds for other world religions. In the next 100 years, humanity for the first time may witness a form of religion that is secular in nature. We might see a form of world religion that incorporates all world religions in one religions system. A religious system that is tolerant to the homosexual community, the doctrine of Hell is metaphor of a real place. Scepticism over blind obedience.

Reason and logic over the supernatural and miracles. Sick people over depraved sinners. Today, scientists are trying to solve the problem of consciousness, if the findings reveal that the soul is not immortal. Then, Heaven and Hell, will be allegories of real places. Instead, of people going to suffer in hell for eternity. Hell could be a place that purifies sinners who were unable to attain sanctity in this lifetime. As science advances people won't need God to provide explanations for the difficult questions. Scientific advancements will fill most of the gaps. The fundamental doctrines of this secular religion is more of a "lifestyle religion." One can believe in God, or not, God won't hold you accountable for your lifestyle choices. A person can do whatever they want as long as they are good to their fellow human beings, tithe to church.

The dangers of "Takeaway" History

By Sicebise Msengana








W. E. B. Du Bois said: "We cannot if we are sane, divide the world into whites, yellows, and Blacks, and then call Blacks white." Today, our children are fed with half-truths and lies. We are taught that first and greatest human civilizations were not from Africa. Some academics rather attribute the pyramids in Egypt to some ancient alien race.
