Robert Whiting submits that one of the reasons we are having difficulty coming together as a people and moving in unison – despite our differences in religion and politics – is attributed to not having a common foundation.
“We are not all singing from the same sheet of music,” he said. “No one is teaching us our history for obvious reasons.”
“Because he’s done his research – of actually being there (in Egypt) – and beginning to understand all the indignancies that have been applied to our history, which we need to correct, Bob is going to talk about that,” former sociology professor, Dr. Kwando Kinshasa said, just prior to introducing Whiting.
The Nile Valley historian was presented in a talk, “Let the Ancestors Speak,” during a recent Black History Month program at the Ormond Beach Regional Library, produced by Linda Epps and Lawrence Green.
“Let the Ancestors Speak” was displayed in the writings and carvings communicated by the ancient world’s government, tombs, temples, etc.
The historian/lecturer researched Africa for 40 years – particularly the Nile Valley civilizations – and studied the Medu Netcher (Egyptian hieroglyphs).
Whiting, a retired federal government official, earned an MBA degree – concentrating on finance and investments – from George Washington University.
He’s an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brother, and a professional jazz guitarist with his own band, Rob’s Jazz Express.
“Most of us – which includes the Africans who are in Africa – have been deprived of the true history of our people.”
Started in Africa
Moreover, “if we focus solely on where we were dropped off, then that’s basically reinforcing our slave mentality because we were at our lowest point,” he said.
But, we need to focalize on our ruling the ancient world, bringing civilization, technology, and knowledge to the rest of the world, he inferred.
“We know conclusively that we began as Homo sapiens in Africa. It is a far-gone conclusion,” he continued.
“It was around 200,000 years ago, down here in southern Africa,” Whiting said, pointing to a map. “Although last year, it was confirmed, up here in Morocco, they found skeletal remains that are now 300,000 years old.
“Once we transitioned to Homo sapiens, we didn’t leave Africa for about 140,000 years. No other humans were anywhere on the planet, except in Africa,” he added.
The first people were the Khoisan people, and we call them the Twa, or Bushmen.
“Every human on the planet has some Twa DNA running through his veins, every human being – because they are the original people,” said Whiting.
Course of nature
Once we left, Asians, Indonesians, and eventually Europeans began to show up some 5,000 to 10,000 years later because nature had taken its course of adapting the climate: The Africans had begun lightening up in Europe due to the terrain, diet, and less ultraviolet light, and developing slanted eyes in Asia as natural sun shades.
Whiting asserted that
Our ancestors figured out that “we can live forever, but we can’t live forever by not going by the principles of divine intelligence that we call God,” said Whiting.
“Human beings who’ve been able to evolve inside and understand that the divine presence, we call God, is within – and everyday, they wake up, they’re walking in the path of godliness, and are not caught up in the ‘yin and yang’ (dualism) that somebody made me mad,” said Whiting.
Twenty-thousand years ago, the principle of binary division and multiplication emanated, which formed the basis of technology and computers – and the importance of prime numbers (2, 3, 5, 7, 11), indicative of messages being decoded today by the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) and the KGB, the English translation of the Committee for State Security.
The medical symbol, used today by the medical establishment, is a symbol for the first multi-genius – a Black man – Imhotep, the Father of Medicine.
Constantine said that there are a people now forgotten, who discovered – while others were yet barbarians – the elements of the arts and sciences, a race of men now rejected from society for their sable skin, founded the study of the laws of nature, silver, and the religious systems that still govern the universe.
These people figured out the perfect slope that would coincide with the laws of nature, enabling the pyramids to stand – a result of mathematics – as well as its being the first indication of Greco-Roman architecture, inasmuch as Greece and Rome had not existed.
The Western zodiac signs were copied from the names of the African gods and goddesses.
Africans developed the first solar calendar, and a deck of playing cards was derived from the African solar year.
“Even today, a large number of Egyptologists would not admit that Kemet (Egypt) was an African civilization,” said Whiting, “and there’s a reason for it – because once this information is disseminated, and once you know it, and you pass it on to your children, no longer will White supremacy work. We are all humans. No ethnic group is superior to another.”
As always, remember our prayers for the sick, afflicted, the prodigal son, or daughter, and the bereaved.
