Yall are so off the topic and irrelevent to my topic tho!!
Lemme guess..... Most of my negative replies are....caucasian ATS members? I"m not being racist- never have and never will. But this topic, the ROOT of my topic does not even apply to you all...It may that you are feeling like I have stepped on your toes because of soem evilness of your race, but really this was a topic to mainly my fellow African American ATS'rs....
If this topic is "disgusting, ignorant, and pathetic" please click on another topic from another forum....
This was not even meant for you to relate to
The 1st century historian Flavius Josephus, among many others, recounted the tradition that these five sons were the progenitors of the nations of Elam, Assyria, Syria, Chaldea, and Lydia, respectively.
Terms like "Semite" and "Hamite" are less common now, and may sometimes even be perceived as offensive, because of their "racial" connotations. The adjectival forms "Semitic" and "Hamitic" are more common, though the vague term 'Hamitic' dropped out of mainstream academic use in the 1960s. Semitic is still a commonly used term for the Semitic languages, as a subset of the Afro-Asiatic languages, denoting the common linguistic heritage of Arabic, Aramaic, Akkadian, Ethiopic, Hebrew and Phoenician languages.
Ham (Hebrew: חָם, Modern Ḥam Tiberian Ḥām / Ḫām ; Greek Χαμ , Cham ; Arabic: حام, IPA: [ xam ], "hot"), according to the Table of Nations in the Book of Genesis, was a son of Noah and the father of Cush, Mizraim, Phut and Canaan.
In the Bible, Japheth is ascribed seven sons: Gomer, Magog, Tiras, Javan, Meshech, Tubal, and Madai. According to Josephus (Antiquities of the Jews I.6):

Many in the American Black Churches know that the Abolitionists liberated them and the Abolitionist movement was Christian.
Yes I know
Dr. King was a Christian Reverend, leading the charge in the Civil Rights movement.
Dr king was a great man that could have been from any religion. I completely repect him
Christianity played a huge role in bringing liberty and equality to African Americans.
Quaker Abolitionists even helped end slavery in the British Empire before the movement built up momentum in the US. When the Empire ended the Atlantic slave trade, it was a monunmental event in helping to end slavery.
Yes that is true.

Well, it's not for you, it's for the Black, Native, and Hispanics on the forum.
I couldn't care less what anyone else thinks.
This is what you people did to the Native tribes.

We aren't all Hebrews. We descended before the land was divided and before there was even Hebrews, Isrealites, and such. We could label them today but in those days no one knew of Israel. Israel was one of Noah's descendants.
It is in the bible, I am not saying it is all true, but I am here to prove that all Hebrews were not black nor is that even relevant to this thread.
We share a father, called by various names and worshipped in various ways all around the world. However he doesn't care about being worshipped or even believed in. All he cares about is that we are kind to each other.

Hebrews are Jacob and Esau.
Esau / Edom = the first white man and all who descended from him.
Your white leaders including Rothschilds and Rockerfellas worship the old Edomite King even today.
Jacob / Israel = The first Israelite, and the progenitor of the Black Hebrews, Natives and Hispanics.
The African's come from Ham.
Zondervan Bible Dictionary:
1.The youngest son of Noah born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negros, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.
