Black History Month is celebrated in the month of February, which we all know is the shortest month of the year. This is also the reason the month of February was chosen as the month to celebrate Black History. Who decided this? Who thought that the history of the Black Indigenous people of the land, could be crammed into a month long celebration; a history that spans thousands, if not millions, of years? Oh, I know! You see, whomever had the utter audacity to sit down and have a meeting about when, why and how they were going to celebrate the history of Black people, probably had the following conversation: "We feel that if we give the "Blacks" a whole entire short month to celebrate their history, they would not start asking questions and seeking the truth about their history and true identity. Let's make them feel as if they really belong into society. Let's give the "Blacks" the illusion of integration by making them think that we actually care about their history. This Black History Month distraction should give us more time to continue to conquer the indigenous land, control their population and change their true history, which we will continue to hide from them." Yes, the conversation probably went something like that.

If you really want to celebrate Black History of the indigenous people, you would have to celebrate every single day of the year. It is because of the original blueprint of the indigenous people, that you have what you have in the world today. No one in the present world for the last 100 years or more, has ever discovered, invented or created anything new. There is nothing new under the sun. It has already been done. As the Scripture states, "Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us." What you think you are discovering, inventing and creating, was already in existence by the indigenous people. You are just utilizing their original blueprint. Yes, I know this may make people feel some sort of way. It may make some people feel a bit uncomfortable; however, your discomfort is truly of no concern. How would you feel if you were given the shortest month of the year to celebrate a history that was stolen from you, by the very people who decided this in the first place? How would it make you feel being told that you are not a citizen of the land your ancestors were born onto, and a land which you and your ancestors are indigenous? How would you feel watching others live comfortably off of indigenous land, which they took away from your ancestors by force, violence and murder? How would you feel being made to live in fear with "Black Laws" imposed onto you, making it impossible to live freely? How would you feel knowing others are continuously controlling a false narrative of your complete history? How would you feel? I guess you don't really think about those sorts of things, seeing how comfortable, privileged and freely you live each day.

I know it is easy for one to just say that it is not their fault that things are the way they are today. But what you fail to understand, or what you fail to acknowledge is the complete and utter fact that because of the violence of your fathers, your grandfathers and your great-grandfathers, you as their descendants are living comfortably off of what does not belong to you. Your children enjoy underserving trust funds, because of your fathers and your grandfathers past "Black Slave Labor." You may not own slaves today, but your people owned slaves in the not too distant past. Your fathers and your grandfathers made sure that Black people could not own many businesses to prevent generational wealth in the Black Family. Your fathers and your grandfathers devised all sorts of obstacles in the path of Black people to prevent them from obtaining any freedom. Your fathers and your grandfathers controlled the false historical narrative as you still do today, that Black people were all descendants of slavery, for the purposes of instilling inferiority in the "Black Mind," generation after generation after generation. Your fathers and your grandfathers never wanted Black people to ever know the "Royalty, Regality and Greatness," of their ancestors. And you as their descendants, have not done anything to change the situation in the present day. This makes you accountable. This Scripture states, "Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity. For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head....Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."

You can give money to as many Black charities as you like, donate to as many Black colleges and universities as you like, adopt as many Black children as you like and have as many Black friends as you like; it still will not change the very bloody past history for which you and your fathers and grandfathers are accountable. You want Black people to forgive and forget the past; however, you never let them forget the past based off of your present day behavior towards them. Black people are compassionate by nature. This is the reason you have not seen the race war which you so desperately seek. Black people are not violent by nature, this is the reason they are slow to get angry. You keep poking and prodding them day in and day out, trying to provoke them into trouble, and when they don't respond they way you think they should, you invent a lie. Many Black men are in prison based on lies. The white institution of government and law enforcement has no favor toward the Black Community. The manmade laws are against the Black Community and does not apply at all to the others. When Black people have attempted to have nothing to do with non-Black people by trying to establish their own wealth, you have found all sorts of ways to tear it down, sometimes resulting in murderous massacres. Your fathers, your grandfathers and your great-grandfathers have killed and murdered whole entire towns and communities of Black indigenous people for their own selfish greed and personal gain. I am not stating something that you do not already know. You just wish that Black people would forget it. For every atrocious act committed against the Black indigenous people, the world should be very thankful that Black people do not have the savage and barbaric nature of seeking revenge. They were created from a foundation of Love. The Divine Kingdom, Mother Nature and The One True God fights for them. The Scripture states, "To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."

If you want to truly celebrate the Black History of the indigenous people, give them back their true Royal, Regal and Majestic stolen history and identity, that which you are portraying today.
