J. Edgar Hoover – who covered up his black ancestry


“Not all slave masters abused their slaves – Some actually treated them like family and bore children by them, like the Mississippi plantation owner, William Hoover. He had eight children by my Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Allen. One of those children was my Grandfather William Allen, and one was his brother, Ivery Hoover, who later had one son; J. Edgar.” Millie McGhee, author of Secrets Uncovered, J Edgar Hoover – Passing For White?

A new book entitled Secrets Uncovered, J Edgar Hoover – Passing For White? has been published revealing that J Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI for most of its early history from 1924 until his death in 1972, had black ancestors. The author, Millie McGhee is an African-American who says she…

Religion and poverty in the Philippines

16 Feb


(The article “Religion in the Philippines’ by Jack Miller follows my comment below) 
The Cathedral in_Intramuros, ManilaManila Cathedral

I visited the Philippines twice during the 1980s.

The country reminded me of my own homeland, Jamaica.

The climate, the plants, and many of the fruit were the same as in Jamaica.

And just like in Jamaica; the majority of the people are Christians and living in poverty.

I made the same observations about the people of Panama, when I lived there  12 years later. The majority of Non Caucasian Christians in Panama are living in poverty.

When I made those visits to the Philippines; I had been living in Okinawa, Japan for the past 3 years.

I had not seen any visible signs of poverty in mainland Japan or on the island of Okinawa when I was there.

Like a flash of lightning it struck me, and I asked myself:

Why is there so much poverty in the Philippines?


The Philippine Islands are the only majority Christian nation in Asia.

The majority of Filipinos are Christians.

There were churches everywhere.

And many of the buses and small transportation vehicles (Jeepneys) had picture drawn on them; that were supposed to be of Jesus.

In the nations surrounding the Philippines, the people are primarily Buddhist, Atheist (China), Islamic or Shinto (Japan).

And all of those nations were more economically successful than the Philippines.

Is the message of Christianity, as it is taught to the Filipinos the cause of their poverty?

In Christianity the image of Europeans (Caucasians) are elevated to a position as divine.

The main image in Christianity is the so-called Caucasian son of god, Jesus.

In many paintings made in Europe they have shown the devil as being dark (black) skinned.


All of the other images presented in Christianity are shown as Caucasians.

Caucasian Adam, Caucasian Abraham, Caucasian Moses, Caucasian Noah, Caucasian Mary etc. etc.

This make the non Caucasian believers in Christianity, accept the belief; that they are inferior to ALL Caucasians.

Especially the ones with dark complexions

There is something fundamentally wrong with people who see the image of another race as superior to their own.

To bow down and worship an image of another race as your god.

The majority of non Caucasian Christians all over the world are also living in poverty:

African Americans Christians

African Christian nations

Filipino Christians

African-Caribbean Christians

Aborigines Christians in Australia

Native American Christians in South Central and North America and Mexico

The majority non Caucasian Christians all over the world, are all suffering from a high rate of poverty where ever they live.

mnb a

The erroneous teachings inserted into Christianity, which emphasizes a Caucasian son of god; has a detrimental, and disastrous effect on non Caucasian people.

Psychologically it cripples them mentally, spiritually and materially. 

It cripples their ability to think for themselves.

It retards their ability to lift themselves out of poverty.

They are always looking for Caucasians to come to their aid and solve whatever problem they are experiencing.

The majority of non Caucasian Christians have been programmed to wait for Caucasians to help them in their lives.

They were taught in Christianity; that one day Caucasian Jesus, would return to the Earth, and solve all their problems.

So many patiently wait for Jesus (or some other Caucasian), to come and rescue them.


Why eating pork is detrimental to your physical and spiritual health?

Did you know that pigs carry a variety of parasites in their bodies and meat?

Some of these parasites are difficult to kill even when cooking.

This is the reason there are so many warnings out there about eating under-cooked pork.

“The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that more than 100 viruses come to the United States each year from China through pigs”

Eating the meat of this filthy animal, may cause us to be more susceptible to contacting the coronavirus.

Lies have been told about Jesus of Nazareth.

These lies have divided the Human family.



by Jack Miller

(From  dated article from President Marcos time)

The Philippines proudly boasts to be the only Christian nation in Asia. More than 86 percent of the population is Roman Catholic, 6 percent belong to various nationalized Christian cults, and another 2 percent belong to well over 100 Protestant denominations.

In addition to the Christian majority, there is a vigorous 4 percent Muslim minority, concentrated on the southern islands of Mindanao, Sulu, and Palawan.

Scattered in isolated mountainous regions, the remaining 2 percent follow non-Western, indigenous beliefs and practices. The Chinese minority, although statistically insignificant, has been culturally influential in coloring Filipino Catholicism with many of the beliefs and practices of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism.

The pre-Hispanic belief system of Filipinos consisted of a pantheon of gods, spirits, creatures, and men that guarded the streams, fields, trees, mountains, forests, and houses.

Bathala, who created earth and man, was superior to these other gods and spirits.

Regular sacrifices and prayers were offered to placate these deities and spirits–some of which were benevolent, some malevolent. Wood and metal images represented ancestral spirits, and no distinction was made between the spirits and their physical symbol.

Reward or punishment after death was dependent upon behavior in this life.

Anyone who had reputed power over the supernatural and natural wasautomatically elevated to a position of prominence. Every village had its share of shamans and priests who competitively plied their talents and carried on ritual curing.

Many gained renown for their ability to develop anting-anting, a charm guaranteed to make a person invincible in the face of human enemies. Other sorcerers concocted love potions or produced amulets that made their owners invisible.

Upon this indigenous religious base two foreign religions were introduced — Islam and Christianity — and a process of cultural adaptation and synthesis began that is still evolving.

Spain introduced Christianity to the Philippines in 1565 with the arrival of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.

Earlier, beginning in 1350, Islam had been spreading northward from Indonesia into the Philippine archipelago. By the time the Spanish arrived in the 16th century, Islam was firmly established on Mindanao and Sulu and had outposts on Cebu and Luzon.

At the time of the Spanish arrival, the Muslim areas had the highest and most politically integrated culture on the islands and, given more time, would probably have unified the entire archipelago.

Carrying on their historical tradition of expelling the Jews and Moros [Moors] from Spain (a commitment to eliminating any non-Christians), Legaspi quickly dispersed the Muslims from Luzon and the Visayan islands and began the process of Christianization.

Dominance over the Muslims on Mindanao and Sulu, however, was never achieved during three centuries of Spanish rule. During American rule in the first half of this century the Muslims were never totally pacified during the so-called “Moro Wars.”

Since independence, particularly in the last decade, there has been resistance by large segments of the Muslim population to national integration. Many feel, with just cause, that integration amounts to cultural and psychological genocide.

For over 10 years the Moro National Liberation Front has been waging a war of secession against the Marcos government.

While Islam was contained in the southern islands, Spain conquered and converted the remainder of the islands to Hispanic Christianity.

The Spanish seldom had to resort to military force to win over converts, instead the impressive display of pomp and circumstance, clerical garb, images, prayers, and liturgy attracted the rural populace.

To protect the population from Muslim slave raiders (?), the people were resettled from isolated dispersed hamlets and brought “debajo de las companas” (under the bells), into Spanish organized pueblos.

This set a pattern that is evident in modern Philippine Christian towns.

These pueblos had both civil and ecclesiastical authority; the dominant power during the Spanish period was in the hands of the parish priest. The church, situated on a central plaza, became the locus of town life.

Masses, confessions, baptisms, funerals, marriages punctuated the tedium of everyday routines. The church calendar set the pace and rhythm of daily life according to fiesta and liturgical seasons.

Market places and cockfight pits sprang up near church walls. Gossip and goods were exchanged and villagers found “both restraint and release under the bells.”

The results of 400 years of Catholicism were mixed — ranging from a deep theological understanding by the educated elite to a more superficial understanding by the rural and urban masses.

The latter is commonly referred to as Filipino folk Christianity, combining a surface veneer of Christian monotheism and dogma with indigenous animism.

It may manifest itself in farmers seeking religious blessings on the rice seed before planting or in the placement of a bamboo cross at the comer of a rice field to prevent damage by insects.

It may also take the form of a folk healer using Roman Catholic symbols and liturgy mixed with pre-Hispanic rituals.

When the United States took over the Philippines in the first half of the century, the justifications for colonizing were to Christianize (American style) and democratize.

The feeling was that these goals could be achieved only through mass education (up until then education was reserved for a small elite).

Most of the teachers who went to the Philippines were Protestants, many were even Protestant ministers. There was a strong prejudice among some of these teachers against Catholics.

Since this Protestant group instituted and controlled the system of public education in the Philippines during the American colonial period, it exerted a strong influence.

Subsequently the balance has shifted to reflect much stronger influence by the Catholic majority.

During the period of armed rebellion against Spain, a nationalized church was organized under Gregorio Aglipay, who was made “Spiritual head of the Nation Under Arms.”

Spanish bishops were deposed and arrested, and church property was turned over to the Aglipayans.

In the early part of the 20th century the numbers of Aglipayans peaked at 25 to 33 percent of the population. Today they have declined to about 5 percent and are associated with the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States.

Another dynamic nationalized Christian sect is the lglesia ni Kristo, begun around 1914 and founded by Felix Manolo Ysagun.

Along with the Aglipayans and Iglesia ni Kristo, there have been a proliferation of Rizalist sects, claiming the martyred hero of Philippine nationalism, Jose B. Rizal as the second son of God and a reincarnation of Christ.

Leaders of these sects themselves often claim to be reincarnations of Rizal, Mary, or leaders of the revolution; claim that the apocalypse is at hand for non-believers; and claim that one can find salvation and heaven by joining the group.

These groups range from the Colorums of the 1920s and 1930s to the sophisticated P.B.M.A. (Philippine Benevolent Missionary Association, headed by Ruben Ecleo).

Most of those who follow these cults are the poor, dispossessed, and dislocated and feel alienated from the Catholic church.

The current challenge to the supremacy of the Catholic church comes from a variety of small sects — from the fundamentalist Christian groups, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists, to the lglesia ni Kristo and Rizalists.

The Roman Catholics suffer from a lack of personnel (the priest to people ratio is exceedingly low), putting them at a disadvantage in gaining and maintaining popular support.

The Catholic church is seeking to meet this challenge by establishing an increasingly native clergy and by engaging in programs geared to social action and human rights among the rural and urban poor.

In many cases this activity has led to friction between the church and the Marcos government, resulting in arrests of priests, nuns, and lay people on charges of subversion.

In the “war for souls” this may be a necessary sacrifice.

At present the largest growing religious sector falls within the province of these smaller, grass roots sects; but only time will tell where the percentages will finally rest.

Confessions of a self-hating Negro

This is the story of one man’s journey to self-discovery.

Like so many others, Mujahid Abdullah learned behaviors and acquired beliefs of denigration about his culture, ethnicity, and physical appearance.

These beliefs came from his local surroundings as well as the wider society and would have a major effect on his entire life.

Within the pages of this book, not only do we see these effects, but we see how he was able to move beyond the messages that were so deeply ingrained from childhood.

This is an eye-opening story of cultural practices and family beliefs that others may keep hidden.

During the 1960s the Nation Of Islam under the leadership of Elijah Muhammad was the primary promoter of the term ‘black’ instead of negro as a racial identification for people of African descent.
Before the mid 1960s no television, radio, or newspapers ever referred to African Americans as ‘blacks.’
The acceptable name for our race then was Negro.
Elijah Muhammad said that Negro was a term for integrationist minded black people.
He said black was a much better term for our people than Negro.
During the 1960s he published his book, “Message To The Blackman.”  
Elijah Muhammad had a wonderful and articulate spokesman named, Malcolm X Shabazz who did an admirable job of denigrating the term ‘Negro’ and promoting the term ‘Black,’ as a racial identification.
Malcolm on many occasions ridiculed the term negro. He said only ‘uncle toms’ liked being called negroes.
He said only ‘house negroes’ like…

The Ethnic Origins of Confederate First Lady Varina Howell Davis, Wife of Jefferson Davis.


Mrs. Jefferson Davis, First Lady of the Confederate States of America

Whenever one is addressing a controversial topic – in this case, the Confederacy – I believe it is important to immediately explain why.

When I was a college student (at a liberal institution in NY), a Southern professor came one year to deliver a lecture about why the Confederate flag should be embraced and she was booed off stage (and off campus) immediately after she started speaking.

I think that was wrong, mostly because we are pretty lucky that we don’t live in, say the Soviet Union or Saudi Arabia, places where an individual does not even have a basic right to express their opinion or to live and practice religion (or other cultural traditions) as they choose.

*Did you know that Jews…
