For example, we see the Kemeyu (Egyptians) adding to the Declaration of Virtues that, one had not committed sodomy or pederasty, when in earlier times, this was not a practice, thus not a concern and therefore was not mentioned as a virtue. It is believed that the introduction of pederasty first entered Kemet via the Semitic Hyksos. We see Kemetic eroticism becoming more graphic and in their art penis sizes enlarge and more pictures of sexual encounters are produced post-Hyksos. Later under Greek influence, we witness the misogyny and sexual disorientation that is characteristic of European culture, manifested among Hellenized Afrikans, especially in the cases of two early church fathers, Tertullian and Origen. Tertullian became an avid misogynist, abandoning his marriage and becoming a celibate. He later disapproved of any meaningful role for women [in Christianity] and was one of their harshest critics. Greek thought had an even more debilitating influence on Origen. He became an extremist who practiced long periods of fasting, sleep deprivation, and self-mutilation, which according to the Church father Eusebius ultimately ended with Origen following Matthew’s 19:12 suggestion of self-castration. He was clearly out of touch with his Kemetic customs and values. These two dissociated individuals show the alienation and psychical imbalance that results when one lives according to the excesses of an alienating worldview.
Fast forward to contemporary times, and we see the devastating influence of Western culture on the people of South Africa. Rape, something that has historically been anathema to Afrikan culture, has become routine in that nation. South Africa, with more than 64,500 reported cases in 2011/2012, has the highest number of rapes per head of population of any Interpol member country. And unfortunately, even when suspects are caught, only 12% of cases end in conviction. Sadly, sex crimes are so common that they rarely receive the corrective attention they warrant. Recently, hundreds of grieving South Africans attended the funeral of a 17-year-old girl whose brutal gang-rape and murder stirred significant outrage. The case of Anene Booysen, who was mutilated and left to die in a small town in the Western Cape, was very reminiscent of a similar incident that occurred in New Delhi last year. President Jacob Zuma expressed shock and outrage, calling for the harshest possible sentences for the evil-doers. (South African media on Saturday, reported that police have arrested a Johannesburg pastor for luring a woman into his church and raping her.) The African National Congress' Women's League is trying to mobilize the public to act, organizing protests and other activities.
Where has this hatred and mistreatment of Afrikan women come from? Surely not from the customs of Afrikan people. Was rape common in the Zulu empire? Certainly not. Zululand was a land without crime, where women and children were valued and protected. Was it part of Xhosa, Ndebele, Swazi, Tsonga or Venda customs? I think not!! Then where does it come from? Rape of both men and woman has always been a part of the Semitic and European cultures. Check out the history--it's there. But when a great and mighty people adopt the ways of their conquerors, what can one expect? And I'm not just talking about South Afrika, the entire world of Global Afrikan People is lost, stolen, or strayed. Our present world situation looks quite paradoxical. We have withstood enslavement and colonialism only to now in “freedom” reach a point where our demise is conceivable, by both the hands of our enemies and ourselves. Or have we become our worst enemy?
I often speak of our amazing history, of our genius and greatness. But those things mean nothing if we cannot live then again--now, today! We have been down spiraling since the 15th century. When will it stop? Only when we stop it! We need an agenda, one that will consciously plan our future, establishing benchmarks that will concretely measure our ascension. Our agenda must accomplish several goals, paramount among them our survival as a racial group, the control of our collective destiny, and the imaging of ourselves as competitive on the world stage, bringing something new into a world in need of something new. What a testament to our heroism and historic greatness that would be! I'm not one for Afrikan Gloriana, are you? So let's get to work.
