History about the first true Americans has been manipulated and influenced by Europeans for hundreds of year. Today, these lies in history continue to be told in History books across the country. Information about African history has always been limited or omitted to benefit Europeans. The truth is European people arrived to America, manipulated Africans and Native people; stole from them; used them as slaves; and killed them. #African American history has always been told through the eyes and words of the Europeans. According to best-selling author James Loewen in his book “Lies My Teacher Told Me,” nothing but lies have been taught in school about the history and civilization of America. If it is not corrected now, generations to come will be subjected to the same lies and lack of knowledge about the country’s history. To believe that civilization began when Europeans arrived and brought it to America is absurd; it just didn’t happen that way.
In Robert Beverly’s ‘American Holocaust’ account it is certain civilization existed long before the arrival of the Europeans:
“Far and away the most beautiful city on earth. Five times the size of London or Rome. Great towers and buildings rising from the water. Sixty thousand gleaming houses, how spacious and well-built they were, of beautiful stone work and cedar wood and wood of other sweet scented trees. Her many streets and boulevards were so neat and well sweep despite the multitude of inhabitants, criss-cross with a complete network of channels like an enormous Venice, but also remarkable floating gardens that remind of nowhere else on earth.”
Europe was not an advanced country; the people were still living years behind other countries. Ancient America was highly advanced with highly civilized areas with gold, wealth and history that had already spanned out thousands of years. There were Africans who arrived in the United States of American thousands of years before #slavery, Columbus, and before Jesus Christ. These blacks and other local nations created and built a thriving home land in ancient America.
The first people were the descendants of West Africa. South America’s Olmecs, Asia, and the Pacific Islands which is how the “mix-cultural” nation was created. These people are the ones that the Europeans called “Red Man.” The natives believed in one supreme God, life after death, and heaven on earth. They were ruled by the legendary Queen of California; Califia. However, the existence of these people have been wiped away. The California blacks are considered the oldest native nations in America.
California Blacks, Genocide & The Gold Rush
California Blacks and other groups of native people suffered tremendously from the Gold Rush. It is estimated that there were ten million and possibly more natives in the country before the white Europeans arrived. However, before it was all said and done Europeans had destroyed over 200 native California communities and eliminated several thousands of native people.
The date of 1492 is the date that will forever be remembered in history. It marked the beginning of evil and genocides of indigenous Americans. These people were predominately #Black people from Africa, Asia and some were mixed Europeans, but you most likely will not find that in history books. Later during the 1700s, the United States spent 80 percent of the country’s budget on attacking Indians and taking their land. Only 20 percent went to education and other country expenses. George Washington and other USA officials decided the best move for the country would be to wipe out the Native American population.
The Poisonous Thanksgiving
Again, Europeans did not bring civilization to America. One can hardly consider stealing, manipulating, and killing as being civilized. As European Americans continue to tell their story of how America came to be, we are reminded of the horrific genocides still alive and brewing today. If the native people were not already in the country, the first European settlers would likely have starved to death. The Europeans knew nothing about farming nor when they first arrived did they try to learn the skill. They spent most of their days digging in search for gold. Many of them begin to deal with mental illnesses, alcoholism, and many committed suicide. There were other Europeans who became sick and died from inadequate care for themselves.
The native people helped the Europeans by teaching them their way. They taught them how to farm and live off the land. The first Thanksgiving spent by the Europeans in America would be a good one for them, because they had plenty to eat and finally knew how to survive. During Thanksgiving dinner with the native Chief and his people, the new colonists offered a toast to eternal friendship. After the toast, the chief, his family and hundreds of other natives dropped dead from being poison. That was the gratitude the Native people received for teaching the Europeans survival.
Act for the Government and Protection of the Indians
During the 1850s, California passed the Act for the Government and Protection of the Indians. But, the act actually did nothing to help the Indians. In fact it just benefited the Europeans more, if an Indian person did not have a job, then the act allowed any white person to force the Indian without a job to work for them. Indians did not have any legal rights against white people; they could not testify against them, and they could be taken as slaves at any time. Most white settlers didn’t do things according to the law, they did what they wanted to do. They often punished Indians how they saw fit, especially the young children. White settlers made money off the labor work of Native women and children. Settlers often paid 50 to 60 dollars for a young woman to cook and wait on them, and 100 dollars for a young girl. The war on the Indians were waged until the Indian race was extinct. Militia were hired to hunt down and slaughter natives, if they were successful they would receive one million dollars revenue.
Towns began to offer cash to bounty hunters for every Indian scalp they obtained. The cash ranged from 5 dollars for every severed head in Shasta City in 1855, and for 25 cents for a scalp in Honey Lake. Women were tortured and forced to wear the severed head of their husband or son around their neck for months as a necklace. If a Native Indian committed a crime, the entire village was most likely to be punished. In some cases, the whole village would be destroyed. These policies ultimately destroyed over two hundred native California communities.
By 1870, the California census listed the population at 32,000, but the blacks and natives who escaped and joined with the Seminoles and other Native nations were not taken into account. The black #Califians (#Khalifians) were not a part of Northern California’s eighteen tribe treaty negotiations of 1853, they continued to valiantly fight the oppressive invaders until the late 1890’s, and the gold rush signaled the beginning of the end for the lands first people.
