The year is 1324A.D.and to the west of the great nile river another civilization has emerged to take the place of the ancient dynasties of the Egyptians 2300 years earlier.The ancestors of the people in West Africa migrated here from the nile region the tigris,and other parts of Africa.Along the Niger river Arab traders from the North or Medditerianian coast traded salt to Black African gold traders called Wangara from the south.This trade began around 100a.d.some say it was even older.Greek philosopher Herodetus talk about Dumb trade.Traders would put their goods along the river banks and wait for the wangara to arrive.The wangara would leave the amount of gold he thought the item was worth.This went on till a price was agreed apon.Over time stability through trade brought wealth and prosperity through out this region.Several tribes began to stand out among others.In the year 1000ad the Kingdom of Ghana was formed in the area of where Mauritainia is Ghana means gold.The king who built this kingdom and brought all of the trading cities, villages, trade routes and learned men under one system was King Tenkamenin supreme ruler of the Empire of Ghana.He devised a new tax system on camels and donkeys entering and leaving all of the cities in the kingdom.As prosperity came learning and enlightenment took hold.The king built a new capital city called Kumbi Saleh and the stone ruins still stand to this day.Islamic scholars moved there from Morrocco,Cairo,Mecca,Spain.Indeed West Africa was the place to be.A new city was built during the height of the Ghana Empire it was called Timbucktu.Built on the banks of the niger river the was the learning center of the world.All this laid the foundation of the coming of the Empire of Gold.
In the year 1274ad the Malinke tribe a Hamitic Sudanic tribe living in the Ghana Empire began to grow.Its warrior king considered their tribe to be divine.His name was King Sudiata Keita of the Keita clan.Born a cripple not able to run or walk because of an illness he was taken care of by females of the village.He wore his hair long in braids and was proud of his tribes beauty.Well someone else was interested in conquering the Malinke his name was Sumangru he raided the village with his men carrying off all the pretty girls and killing all of the fighting age men.When he saw young Sundiata he took pity.This only act of kindness was to be his doom.When Sundiata grew up he swore revenge.A blacksmith man him some imitation legs so he could walk upright.He practiced the fighting arts for years and like David and Goliath he challenged the evil king to a battle.Sumanguru had magical powers he appeared to Sundiata as an owl,trying to tell him to back down but Sundiata told the owl I know who you are and I will avenge the Malinke.The next day as the two rode to each other on horseback Sundiata pulled a special arrow designed to go through Sumangru's armor.He drew and struck the miserly king killing him.He liberated the city of Niani and made it the new capital of the Mali Empire.

In discussing the teachings of author Mike Dyson one has to be familiar with the conditions and mind set of modern African American community.In several of my post I listed the problems of the Black race in America.First was Sacred Cows,another was,'The road to hell is often paved with good intentions,the 'Arrested Development.I said 'A mans word is his bond.'Finally I explained to the world what the Kala Nation is and how are we going to achieve it.Well the first thing we have to do is to identify who we are as a people(knowledge of self)and then identify how we can collectively come together as a people and a nation within a nation for our survival.I have often wrote men are made and judged by his words and deeds.In the bible it say you are known by the fruits you bear.This I bear witness to.It is not above any man not to forgive our fellow man for misdeeds so long as that man trys to make amends for wrong doing.Right now Black America is in a serious meltdown.We are the only group of people who refuse to believe or should I say live by what is right and what is wrong.A man who loves his people will tell them when they are doing wrong.A man who is a con artist,a hustler,a fraud tells you what he think you want to hear.No let us examine Mike Dysons book 'Is Cosby right'Now Dyson has a right to critisise Cosby all he wants that is his right.What he does not have the right to do is is character assassination or trying to pit classes of black people against each other.Dyson is a dangerous liar.He says Cosby hates poor blacks.COSBY HATES BAD BEHAVIOR!!That is different than hating his own race.Does anyone believe this academic fraud who has a history of defaming black icons like Martin Luther King jr.In his book which is written on a fifth grade reading level with simplistic insults aimed at attracting an ignorant unintellectual so called hip hop generation.He said cosby should just eat his jello pudding pop.See he has taken on the swagger of the no good hood thug who listen to him.He is desperate for followers weak uneducated misinformed fools who want to hear all day how its the white mans fault why they cant read a book and succeed.Cosby has always represented the best of what black america is about.Now was cosby involved in scandals?Sure but what about the founding fathers?Look at Mt Rushmore look at you money see how other races protect their elders and heroes who fought for them.Has not cosby given enough to his people? Isn't his word enough?Why don't we forgive our own the way every other people protect their own?I know why NIGGERTIVITY!!We are so negative we cant even do anything for ourselves.Dyson feeds into this negativity by pandering to the ignorant among us.He insults the poor because the negative in Black America or ghettoism is practiced by all income levels so Cosby never singled out the poor.That was Dyson playing class warfare.You see he is working for enemies of the real black community.
Now let us examine just why this tragic mullatto would chose to go against Bill Cosby a real Black man who is a pillar in black america.One is insecurity he is a nerd who looks like one of those dudes everyone beat up in grade school.He trys to put on a black mans venacular but underneath his voice there is weakness,in other word he has no soul.He is not a real blackman but an oreo who is using hip hop to try and gain black relevance but to a wise black man like myself he isnt fooling anyone.I can see through anyone,This man is evil,self serving and disrespectful.He disrespected Nation of Islam minister Conrad Muhammad on BET the black exploitation television.Now I say it is time to take the gloves off to these race traitors,coons,mullattos,drug dealers,minstrel rappers.Dyson is a fool and a whore prostituting himself to minstrel rap artist for financial gain and prominence.I would love for him to come on this or any forum and debate me.He is not on my level,and I dont have a masters degree.We never got our moneys worth from The United Negro College Fund look at Dyson.I am not sending anymore money,if a mind is a terrible thing to waist,so is my dollars.
