Sadly Racism Had Its Roots In Scripture – Reno Omokri

Published

Many sub Saharan Africans use the term half caste innocently to refer to persons whose parents come from different races. Unawares to them, every time they use that term, they are feeding into a racist stereotype that sees us as inferior. The appropriate term is mixed race.

The phrase ‘half caste’ is derogatory and originated in Colonial India, where they have a deep seated caste system, which you are born to, as well as Australia, where the colonialists met a native Aboriginal people, and treated them rather harshly.

If you go to America and use that term, nobody will understand what you mean. It is a hurtful slur. Why? Because the word caste is from the Latin castus, meaning pure. When it was used in the 19th Century, it was meant to donate that the mixed race individual was only half pure. The purity in their eyes came from White Anglo Saxon blood. Therefore, when you use the term half caste; you, as a Black African, are accepting that your blood is not pure. Please can we as a people  avoid it.

But beyond European colonialism, where do we get our ye earliest records of racism? The answer is surprisingly from Scripture.

Where did Moses find God? The answer is Ethiopia. He was married to a Black Ethiopian woman. Numbers 12:1-2. And her Black African father was Moses’ mentor in the way of God. And Moses obeyed him like a student even after leading the children of Israel out of Egypt-Exodus 18:24.

Now, when the Old Testament (what the Hebrew call the Tanakh) uses the term Ethiopia, it is actually referring to Africa. As at the time the King James Version of the Bible was translated in 1611, there was no nation called Ethiopia. Rather, the African continent was called Ethiopia and Black people were referred to as Ethiopes.

The modern nation of Ethiopia only became known by that name in 1945. Prior to that, Ethiopia was known as Abyssinia. And till today, Ethiopians do not refer to themselves as Ethiopians. They call themselves Habesha.

In Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, Romeo upon seeing Juliet for the first time proclaimed as follows:

“O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright. It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear.”

That word Ethiop, referred to a Black person.

The original word used in Numbers 12:1 which is translated Ethiopian is Cush. Cush is Hebrew for Black. There are two types of races mentioned in the entire Old Testament. Cushitic people (Blacks) and Semitic people (Hebrews and Arabs). No other race is mentioned.

Have you not asked yourself why Moses’s children never rose to prominence in Canaan, or the promised land, despite their father being a Founding Father of the Ancient Israelite nation?

Aaron’s children, who were their cousins, were very prominent, and held High Priestly positions, as did their lineage, till today.

We know that Moses had two sons, Gershom and Eliezer. We see this in 1 Chronicles 23:15.

When Moses left Ethiopia (as Black Africa was then called) for Egypt, He dispatched his wife and children to go and live with their grandfather Jethro in Midian. They only joined their father in the wilderness after the Exodus. We see this in Exodus 18:2-6.

That is the last time they were mention in Scripture, except for when their lineage was traced in 1 Chronicles 23:15.

But why? Why would the children of such a prominent man have to be sent away from him to live with their grandfather, and only visit their father in the wilderness. The answer to that lies in Numbers 12:1. That verse says in the NIV:

“Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses because of his Cushite wife, for he had married a Cushite.”

The KJV says:

“And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.”

The reason Gershom and Eliezer faded away, is because of the racism in the Israelite nation against them.

Of a sudden, Pastor Dr. Paul Enenche is a fake man of God because of a single mistake according to some keyboard warriors who have been waiting for privilege – Sen Onono

Of a sudden, Pastor Dr. Paul Enenche is a fake man of God because of a single mistake according to some keyboard warriors who have been waiting for privilege.

Well, all I can say is; This man right here have his own blame likewise the woman. Why? If you watch the video and you are the type that judge base on people’s command of English, You wouldn’t need a pre-convincing argument that the said “Woman Lawyer” is telling lies. The man of God couldn’t agree less than to embarrass her which was totally wrong but quite understandable considering the fact he acted on emotions! The testimony teams aren’t left out as well because courtesy demand interviews should be given before anyone comes to the alter to give any testimony!
while we all await Pastor’s apology, let me pen this down.

Once you become a public figure, You become a television everyone focuses on why? Because many await the day you will flop so they can use it as a yardstick to pour out their mind!

Nigerians expect public figures to be hundred percent perfect not knowing they (public figures) are humans too.

I read some comments and I can’t help but shake my head.

Nigerians?
Trust me, Few persons have the woman at heart because all I can say is, Most of the verbal outbursts on the man of God are uncalled for.

Why are Nigerians so quick to label others “Bad” and as well, Forget the days they were once a good person?

Why don’t we give people second chance?

Well, as said earlier on, Pastor should tender apology to the woman better still, He should do “MORE” for the sake of his reputation and those who are his true fans. If Pastor fail to apologize, some gullible fans would toil with his children’s mental health!

Pastor Sir, I won’t join others to crucify you because it’s okay to make mistake.
Sir, you are not God because he alone is perfect!

Your actions towards her is the reason why she’s trending on the internet today. (Still,not a good one for your brand and her mental health).

Please, Do the needful (Apology) and I would join your ‘True fans’ to celebrate you.

Regards.

Lungu, the Next Lying President Of Zambia in View: A Questionable Token of Appreciation

Published

on

By

In a recent revelation that has sent shockwaves across Zambia, former President Edgar Lungu reportedly disclosed to his legal representatives from Makebi and Company that the hefty sum of 24 million dollars from KCM (Konkola Copper Mines) was merely a “token of appreciation.” This statement has ignited widespread skepticism and further eroded trust in Lungu’s leadership capabilities.

Lungu’s assertion raises numerous red flags, particularly in light of the ongoing investigations into corruption and mismanagement during his presidency. The timing of this disclosure, coupled with the staggering amount involved, casts doubt on the true nature of the transaction between Lungu and KCM.

The notion that 24 million dollars could be categorized as a mere token of appreciation is not only absurd but also insulting to the intelligence of the Zambian people. Such a significant sum of money cannot be dismissed as a gesture of gratitude without raising serious questions about the motives behind it.

Moreover, Lungu’s track record for honesty and transparency is far from impeccable. Throughout his tenure, he faced allegations of corruption, election rigging, and human rights abuses, tarnishing Zambia’s reputation on the international stage.

This latest revelation only adds fuel to the fire of distrust surrounding Lungu’s leadership. If indeed the 24 million dollars from KCM was a token of appreciation, what favors were granted in return? What other undisclosed dealings occurred during Lungu’s presidency?

As Zambia prepares for its next presidential election, the electorate must scrutinize candidates’ integrity and commitment to accountability. Lungu’s admission serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of entrusting power to individuals with questionable ethical standards.

The future of Zambia hinges on its ability to elect leaders who prioritize the interests of the nation above personal gain. Lungu’s legacy as the next lying president in view serves as a cautionary tale, urging citizens to demand transparency, accountability, and integrity from those vying for public office.
