There has been renewed calls to dismantle Captain Cook monuments across Australia as the aftermath of the BLM protests continue.
Captain Cook who 'founded' Australia in 1770 has a divisive history with First Nations and Aboriginal people. Cook met few Aboriginal people on the Eastern Australian shoreline. Because they did not grow crops and because he assumed there were no inland fishable rivers, he concluded that Australia’s interior was empty. Cook thought the Aboriginal people would run away and abandon their rights to land. They were both wrong, as the Gadigal and other local Aboriginal people later proved by ambushing the convicts who were often sent to work into the bush.
Hiss claim of 'founding Australia' diminishes the 60'000+ years that Indigenous people had been there before him.
"In Indian mystic symbolism, the multiplicity of this world is shown by the interpenetration of the upward male triangles (phallic) and the downward female triangles (vulva) --- the ascending and descending vortices of creative energy. This vulva image, the descending triangle, which signifies cosmic energy spiraling down into manifestation through matter, is a very ancient symbol. It has been found in Paleolithic caves, inscribed on stone blocks lying face downwards on the ground, and within engraved stone circles in the caverns' depths. Ancient people believed that power resided in images themselves --- or rather in the resonance between the image and the thing imaged --- and this belief still lives in all of us; symbols continue to have great power over the human mind and heart. Contemporary hunting-and-gathering people, such as the Australian aborigines, maintain connections with mythical ancestors by tracing sacred paintings and dreamtime maps on the walls of secret caves. We can imagine that ancient women gained cosmic energy by touching and tracing the sacred vulvasign of the Great Goddess; just as initiates gained the power and insight of ecstatic death and rebirth by tracing and retracing the sacred spirals of the labyrinth, the womb-tomb-maze of the Great Earth Mother." -The Great Cosmic Mother by Barbara Mor & Monica Sjöö
I’m not going to flood you with my family tree, but from our elders have branched many Children of Israel, just like any other family. This is just a fraction of siblings of siblings. I just want to give you basic understanding of the Eve Gene.
This is my mama, and one of her siblings whom she has the same mother [the pic with the Graduation Hat of one of her Granddaughters (my 1st cousin who is dark and comely like she is) from her 2nd to eldest child, but the eldest daughter]and father with, and my maternal grandfather is Iberian and Semitic just like my paternal grandfather. I don’t have a picture of him, but is not dark a complexion.
My sister and I have the same mother (who is not dark skin), but different fathers, her father is dark and comely like she or like the #Hebrews descendant from Noah’s son Shem.
Now do you understand skin afflictions explained by Yehuda HaNasi? ( #Judah#TribeOfJudah#12TribesOfIsrael#12TribesRising ). Now do you understand the magic of the #EveGene found in #IndigenousWomen (“Women of Color: #Indian , #Samaritan#African#Arabian#Latina and even in #Asian ”)?
I’m not going to go into detail of my heritage, because I have more than just the tribe of Judah, but Gad ( #NorthAmericanIndian ) too..
A woman with the Eve Gene, even if she is not necessarily dark, but brown or light skin; can create an albino or dark baby with another brown, lightskin, or pale man.. but a woman without the Eve Gene cannot with a man who is not indigenous. So two light skins can create a dark skin baby & visa versa.
After watching @uncletomfilm I wanted to know more of this #DuBois He was an opponent of #bookertwashington 🙄Not surprised.
Du Bois and #MargaretSanger 💁♀️😭 they both promoted #eugenics#populationcontrol
I also came across this article.
From this article:
** Thelma Berlack Boozer activist and columnist for the New York Amsterdam News, wrote a column called “The Feminist Viewpoint” under the initials T.E.B.
In a 1934 piece called “Birth Control Gains Sanction,” she argued that reproductive control could resolve many of the social problems facing the race and society at large: “More well-born babies, fewer ill-born babies, and sterilization of those unfit to become parents will aid society in solving some of its major problems.”...
many of us think of compulsory sterilization as cruel and inhumane, Taylor and T.E.B. understood it as part of a strategy for biologically uplifting the race. Taylor saw it as a temporary plan until African Americans could learn and embrace their eugenic possibilities...
Although African American engagement in eugenics complicates the ways in which we understand its legacy, we also cannot forget that eugenics legislation disproportionately targeted African Americans in violent ways. For example, North Carolina’s Eugenics Commission sterilized approximately 8,000 people during the 1930s and 1940s. 5,000 were African American.**
All these elites were in this chess game for themselves. They promoted #darwin#evolution which promotes division.
It all started with making #Aborigines as being closely related to monkeys 😭 & apes 😭 followed by #Africans 😭😭 So I and others blame those who promoted the #evolutionarytheory 🤦♀️
Look, we #humans are #onerace # #oneblood
