Africans stand with Harvard scholar Henry Lewis Gates Jr.

Henry Lewis Gates, Jr. the noted African Harvard scholar is a victim of the white power structure which is trying to reassert its historical dominance over Africans and on all people of color.

Fortunately, we now live in the era of Obama where such injustices will not be allowed to happen without comment, reflection and the action of justice.

During the years of the Bush Regime, Professor Gates would have been beaten or perhaps even killed for being African but the era of Obama is one of justice and racial reckoning.

We stand with him and all Africans.

The real reason the white man has not returned to the Moon

The pyramids are in perfect alignment with the Moon

White Americans are currently celebrating the 40th anniversary of their first visit to the Moon in 1969. But why has the white man being unable or unwilling to return to the Mon since 1972? First let’s travel back to the past for the answer.

The ancient Africans were the most advanced and spiritual people in the history of the Earth. They created wonder after wonder, such as the pyramids, great temples and cities, science, medicine and the language of hieroglyphs. But how did they attain such inner and outer brilliance?

The ancient Africans were direct descendents of the beings who traveled through the stars and found Earth. Many of these beings are referred to as Gods.

The African goddess of the sky protected the Moon

For example, in African mythology Nut (also known as Newet, and Neuth), was the goddess of the sky. Her name translated to mean night was the guardian of the Moon. Nut was said to be covered in stars touching the cardinal points of her body. Her headdress was the hieroglyphic of part of her name, a pot, which may also symbolize the uterus. The ancient Egyptians themselves said that every woman was a nutrit, a little goddess.

Nut and the other Gods taught the original Africans the ways of the universe. They traveled to the stars and often visited the Moon in order to study the Earth from space. From the Moon, these Africans were able to create highly detailed maps of the Earth which enabled them to explore the world by sail.

The ancient Africans traveled to the Moon
The white man has tried to hide the truth for 40 years.

In 1969 the white man discovered this historical truth linking Africa’s glorious past to the Moon. They do not want this information or any proof of it to be discovered or studied or even seen. Subsequent visits to the Moon were intended to erase the evidence but the effort was deemed to costly and the white man decided to stop visiting the Moon.

Michelle Obama's plea for education

What Obama means to me

What Obama means to me

by David Tsotsi Kasumali

To me, Obama represents not ­only an office but a person. I'm ashamed to say it but I didn't know who Obama was before the election. Then he was just a name. Then he was a face, a slogan, and a voice. Now, he is a person, very real human and he's President! He's the first real person to be President. He is respected everywhere in the world and admired and it makes me proud of my African heritage. I want to learn more about it.

Obama has brought people and the world together. “Obama” should be in the dictionary. What other word can describe hope, unity, change, expectation and leadership in just three ­syllables like Obama does?

David Tsotsi Kasumali graduated from Swarthmore College this year and plans to enter law school.

Obama tells the world that "Africa is not separate from world affairs."

Africans celebrate the arrival of President Obama

Obama: 'Africa not separate from world affairs'

ACCRA, Ghana (AP) - President Barack Obama said his visit to Ghana on Saturday was designed to illustrate that "Africa is not separate from world affairs."

Obama said events in Africa do not lose their effects at the continent's borders and said Africa is a fully integrated part of the global economy. "What happens here has an impact everywhere," Obama said during a meeting with Ghanaian President John Atta Mills.People lined the streets Saturday morning, many waving at every vehicle of Obama's motorcade as it headed toward a meeting at Osu Castle, the storied coastline presidential state house. One woman emerged from a coffee shop to wave a tiny U.S. flag while others sold posters and T-shirts with Obama's picture. Many billboards lined the roads, including one that showed the president and his wife with the greeting, "Ghana loves you."

While the people of Ghana may be in a frenzy over Obama's visit, the president started his day with typical calm. Wearing a gray T-shirt and gym pants, he walked through the lobby of his hotel virtually unnoticed at 7:30 a.m. local time on his way to the downstairs gym for a morning workout. A short time later, his motorcade left the hotel, passed under hovering military helicopters and arrived for a delayed welcome ceremony.

Mills greeted his counterpart and then the pair went inside for one-on-one meetings. Selecting Ghana as the starting point of his black Africa travels, the president sought to highlight a continental success story.

A new look and direction for the TRUTH FIRST site

It may look different but the TRUTH is still here.

Besides the cosmetic changes the TRUTH FIRST blog will now feature writings from other African scholars, commentators, citizens and students. Those who have learned the TRUTH and who are able to teach it will be welcomed here to share what they know.

Some of this is in concession to the fact that I simply do not have the time to post here on a regular basis. My work for the Obama administration, the University and my travels and research leave me with little time for other pursuits.

But I also desire to see other African voices and perspectives be given the opportunity to be viewed and discussed.


Those who oppose the truth will oppose President Obama's health care reform

Access to medicine and health care are basic human rights. We can expect intense opposition to President Obama's efforts to restore these rights from those who oppose the truth.
