It is imperative for global citizens around the world to overstand the power of division and its relationship to social constructions. Race does not exists and any person who chooses to identify with a racial construct perpetuates and condones racial capitalism and white supremacy. People may or may not realize this so the question becomes what can we do?
For something to be socially defined as a construct entails it was brought into existence by shaped universal history, events and sources. Classifications exists in the empty space of language, institutions, material interactions, and interactive practices with other people. If race is tied to one's essence what does that say about the essence itself? Is it limited by social paradigms or is it limitless like dark matter?
The first step is to re-educate our minds to gain insight that classifications of human populations by 'race' is not supported by genetic data. The western biomedical science field is filled with incongruities which aim to exploit physical differences to cause social issues regarding self-identification, collective representation, equality, stigmatization, racism, discrimination, and resource distribution. These societal differences have caused our environments to be influenced by ignorance and misinformation. State bureaucracies adopting classifications that contribute to discourse of 'race' such as nationality, geography, ethnicity, and ancestry has diseased global societies with inequities. There is no such thing as black, white, Afrakan, Mexican, Asian, European, Columbian, Puerto Rican, Nicaraguan, Sudanese, etc. What prestige is there in identifying as an arbitrary boundary or social construct created for oppression?
Race based science is a detriment to our civilizations as it causes social and ethical implications in the field of genetic and medical research. The paradigms of human identity based on race are unethical biological constructs which are socially accepted. Societies accepting the membership of a racial category or group is the result of an influenced psyche from its restrictive environment. Social negotiations have been required to determine the criteria that are implemented to judge the association of various groups and categories. ‘Racial’ classification schemes are imbedded in social institutions, legal codes, policies and practices, as documented in 'Conceptualizing Human Variation' the author argues:
"some of the ‘racial’ taxa of earlier European science used by law and politics were converted into social identities. For example, the self-defined identities of enslaved Africans were replaced with the singular ‘Negro’ or ‘black’, and Europeans became ‘Caucasian’, thus creating identities based on physical traits rather than on history and cultural tradition. Another example of social construction is seen in the laws of various countries that assigned ‘race’ (actually social group or position) based on the proportion of particular ancestries held by an individual. The entities resulting from these political machinations have nothing to do with the sub-structuring of the species by evolutionary mechanisms." (2004: S18)
The pattern of socially defined constructs pervading in global culture condones oppressive systems like racial capitalism denotes that civilizations worldwide are regressing. However, for the civilization to retrogress so does the cosmic mind of people.
If we are not color, then what are we?
I choose to believe that firstly we (the people) are cosmic beings of carbon and light. We are Mer|Moor.
More than the socially defined constructs and paradigms whom must not accept the labels of our oppressors.
Why the spelling Afraka?
The Moors Association chooses to hold a frame of reference wherein phenomena and psychology are viewed from the perspective of the Afrakan person. This is done particularly because historically and in contemporary times it has been intentionally disrupted and disregarded by western nations. The Moors Association centers on placing people of Afrakan origin in control of their stories and attitudes about the world. This means we examine every aspect of the dislocation of Afrakan people; economics, psychology, health, religion, culture, family, etc. We choose the Afrocentric intellectual approach to identify ideas, problems and solutions from the standpoint of Afrakans as victors rather than victims. We take on an authentic relationship to the centrality of our own reality to break the bonds of western domination in the masses of Afrakan minds.
According to the Dohgon University of Thought, it is believed there is a West Afrakan civilization in Mali identified as the Dogons. The Do(h)gons“defined our identity as AfRAkan and while the term may appear similar it is unlike the word African in that it has a meaning that is defined by us and not a European explorer. AfRAka means First-Sun-Soul.”
What is the purpose of Mer|Muur|Moor?
To counter institutional provincialism, the masses of people must normalize studying semantics, etymology and phonology of words. The global masses are grossly illiterate because our society awards stupidity and violence as opposed to knowledge and integrity. Together we can change this uncomfortable truth. Nevertheless, the word Moor comes from the name of the land Ta-Merri, meaning the beloved land. Yet, there are several other definitions of this word because it was utilized globally.
In the first writing system, MDW NTR, meaning either mother nature or the language of gods, 'MR' is recorded as meaning pyramid or love. The significance of Mer relating to pyramid is that these massive monumental stone structures were used to align with stars while emitting sun-rays or light beams.
Pyramid (N.): Middle English as piram, from French pyramide (Old French piramide "obelisk, stela," 12c.) Pyramids of Giza were once covered in a white casing made of glimmering limestone which was so polished that it would reflect the sun's rays. The original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth
For the ancient people, there was no existence of race because it only serves as a distraction. Instead, our ancestors related themselves to nature, astronomy, metaphysics, and cosmology. Yet, when you search the word, 'Moor', in the dictionary you would find an erroneous definition of it meaning black, northern African muslims, or even death. It is vital for us realize that words have had their meanings changed in order to confuse the masses and permit them to remain docile.
The KMT word Mer can also relate to a collection of water, a lake, canal, stream, basin of harbour, reservoir, flood, chief, overseer, head, direct, inspector of dignities of the highest kind, land superintendent, captain, governor, administrator, etc. KMT is the ancient geographic location which is now identified as Egypt, although much smaller. There are several meanings of the word Mer|Moor and none of them attribute to a color, however, it is crucial to remember that all people identified as Mers|Moors were darkly pigmented. Moors migrated worldwide, hence, the word can be found globally and attributed to groups of people whom are deeply pigmented. Moor is not solely related to a geographic locations that has its root word such as Morocco or Mauritania, instead, it exposes the exploration of Moors worldwide and their development of regions.
There has been a whitewashing of the definitions of words, thus I strongly encourage subscribers to challenge their thinking by becoming inquisitive and seek moor knowledge, wisdom & power.
The Mers|Moors are the children of the sun & we are the Mers|Moors.
