  • Published on: 13 March 2014

    This is the most absurd research ever. I am so ashamed of this presentations lack of historical research. How can this be displayed as scholarly? This is the information age; Yet this well spoken woman is able to completely destroy a great topic complete nonsense... completely overwelming disgusting

    out of all the subjects that could have been researched she decided to do this one!?! Why?When you have enjoyed a lifetime of (rich) servitude to the master you are filled with gratitude to the point of wanting to give them some shine so as to let them know: Hey Boss!i preciate cha for allowing me to prosper in your backyard! She used their information to develop this book,she used their research to put together this presentation( to sell the book),she used all the quotes they have given about themselves and stories.She referenced NO black scholars, no books written by black male or female scholars,all her information came from the very people she decided to write about,how is that supposed to be accurate? Well....it can't because you cannot trust these people,they will do anything to trick you into believing they are this or that,for her to do this tells me she either was trying to:1. run for public office 2.impress a colleague so as to get a grant to further research for a particular subject.3.appeal to this group for acceptance into a group IE Bilderberg,US Foreign policy agency etc. This is a shame for a so-called black woman to do this type of stuff for people who don't care for her or her race. Turn Coats never learn.

    You are absolutely correct about turning it off after 5 minutes, I made it even faster once I heard the puky word "democracy". This country was and is a "Republic" and no freaking Democracy. Democracy is a Communist garbage shit not compatible with Republic. No mater what you turn on in regard radio, TV, web seminars or going there physically, they all talking in fucking democratic terms. I am sick and tired of this crap.while the republic was established right from the get go by the law, constitution and legislative acts on fed. and state levels. You can not find the freaking democracy term in any of these aforementioned above. Any dem. has no authority to operate, to be on the election ballot and on and on........

    Adam was created in God's image, thus Adam had to be of a very light color like God. Probably having blonde hair and blue eyes. Though God's hair is snow white.

    The first black man was Cain, after God put the Mark of Darkness upon him. No, it was not a little mark on the forehead as shown in movies. The reason for the mark was to make sure no one would kill him, thus a mark that one could see from any direction and at a distance. Black represents a great sin. Even Christ talk about those going to Heaven and being given White Robes, not Black ones.David, Man of God

    God is a glowing White as described in the Holy Bible. Brighter than the sun with NO dark spots whatsoever. The color black is not found near the presence of God. Any black that makes it to heaven shall be turned White.

    Very insightful and informative. I always thought that the classification had more to do with describing people in the Caucasus region of Eastern Europe which she confirmed. The current use of Caucasian like many classifications of people is more social. Too bad we can not all get along. She pointed out that Imperial Russia tried to exterminate the people from the Caucus and before that there were people (The Georgians) who were captured and sold as slaves in Eastern and Western Europe! Sounds like this was before Africans were captured and sold. What I missed was how did the use of the word begin to describe all Europeans. Did it happen with the slave trade and the discovery of the Americas? I am guessing that this is possible because it was way to tell phenotypically the differences between people. Thank you for posting. Would love to learn more about when these social changes regarding race occurred and what specific events precipitated the change.

    i think my fathers family is actually from the caucus mountain region! i first realized this when i noticed how much they look like the Phoenician men from the nat geo years back. and although i know Phoenicia is not of the caucus mts, it is very near and they look extremely similar, compared to arkansas natives. it got me thinking and researching. years later, my cousins and i discovered our fathers father was not who he claimed to be and he had changed his name. who knows?! does it really matter? if we consider ourselves american, it really shouldn't

    These definitions are scenarios of reckless opinions based upon different subjective prejudices with a limited history. Why would I care about some baseless opinions? To understand the Caucasions' origin, one must consider the history of Israel in that span of time.

    ALL YOUR EYES CAN SEE IS CREATED OR INVENTED BY WHITES, THE OTHERS JUST CAN ARRIVE TO REED THE BOOKS OF THE WHITES WITH DISIPLINE WHICH IS CALLED HIGH SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY, BY THE WAY, ASIANS JUST COPY MANY TIMES MODIFYING WITHING THE THING THEY HAD SEEN AND READ, AGAIN FROM THE BOOK THEY READ FROM THE WHITES.INVENTIONS ARE HELPED BY THE MIND OR INTELECT, BUT THE INVENTIONS COME FROM THE SPIRIT, SO, WHITES ARE MORE SPITUAL, BETTER CONNECTED WITH THE SPIRITUAL, HIGH REALMS, AND BLACKS ARE FROM THIS EARTH, THEY ARE VERY PHISICAL, VOODOO. EVERYTHING IS ABOUT BODY. THE PROVIDER MEN COME FROM EUROPEANS, BLACKS DO NOT HAVE THE PROVIDER MAN, THE FEMELAS GO OUSIDE AND GET PREGNANT AND HAVE CHILDRENS WITH SEVERAL MEN, FROM THERE ALSO, BLACK MALE ISN'T MONOGAMOUS, I LAUGH WHEN WHITE WOMEN GO AFTER BLACK MEN AND THEN THEY COMPLAIN, IT IS AN OTHER "CIVILIZATION", THEY DO JOT HAVE AFFINITY, REALITY AND GOOD COMMUNICATION WITH YOU.THE GENOTYPE OF BLACK FEMALE IS ALL ABOUT THEIR ASS AND UPSET, AND SCREAMING, THEY ARE MOSTLY UPSET LIKE MEN, THEY ARE TREACHEROUS AND RESENTFULL MANY POINT YOU WITH THEIR INDEX, THE FACT IS THAT THEY ARE FOOLISH AND CONCEITED, THAT IS FROM THEIR IGNORANCE FROM THOUSANDS OF YEARS FROM INCAPACITY.

    The black kid in the video says, "How am I gonna be racist in Russia, as a black man?" Uh, by hating white people???? You can still be racist on a personal level. Don't confuse that with institutionalized racism.

    There is still alot of slavery today. The red legs were the first slaves in the Caribiean.I am NOLA Creole. I do not get that in 2018 peolpe are still bringing up past slavery when slavery is still so prevalent today. There has always been misuse of labor byothers- slavery and abuse. But it is not based on race.
