Don’t Believe The Hype: The Truth About Black Intelligence Revealed

“Don’t Believe The Hype: The Truth About Black Intelligence Revealed”

By Legrand H. Clegg II,* Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations

Imhotep was a priest, physician and architect during the zenith of ancient Egyptian civilization. His brilliance epitomized the genius of Black people in antiquity.

On May 29, 2018, actress Roseanne Barr tweeted that Valerie Jarrett, a Black woman and one of President Barack Obama’s closest advisors, is the product of “Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes.” A few days later, a Black reporter from the MSNBC cable network interviewed a White supremacist, Arthur Jones, who was a candidate for public office in Illinois. He informed her that Black people are genetically inferior to Whites, and the fact that she was bright enough to attend Harvard University was attributable to her “White blood.”

There was swift reaction to both comments. ABC cancelled “Roseanne,” the popular, rebooted sitcom.  Many Americans across the country expressed outrage over the statements of Jones. The sentiments expressed by Barr and Jones are not new. Long before the founding of the American republic, White people insisted that Blacks were a distinctly different species. Thomas Jefferson—though ably refuted by contemporary Black scientist Benjamin Banneker—consistently expressed this viewpoint. The United States Constitution still includes words (now invalidated by the 14th Amendment) that Black people are 3/5ths of a human being.  Numerous clergymen have falsely insisted that Black people are the cursed descendants of Noah’s son, Ham. Legions of White historians and scientists have also taught that people of African descent are small-brained, genetically inferior sub-humans with no history prior to slavery and colonialism.

Furthermore, the American media have perpetuated Black degradation and stereotypes from the early Amos & Andy sitcoms to the current outrageous guests on the Jerry Springer Show and the actors and actresses on Real Housewives of Atlanta, etc.

Writing in the July 24, 1975, issue of Ebony magazine, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, a distinguished Black psychiatrist, commented on the primary reason for the White preoccupation with Black intelligence:

The collectivity of whites has evolved patterns of societal structuring to cause blacks and other people of color to appear functionally inferior to themselves through both crude and highly refined methodologies to deprive peoples of color of the same social, educational, economic and political supports that they provide for themselves. They then say that such patterns of inferior functioning are genetically determined. Dr. [William] Shockley and all others who cannot cease talking and writing in a negative manner about the genetics of black people and other people of color, whether the discussion be overt or covert, are all simply victims not only of the genetic recessive deficiency state of skin albinism but also its component psychological disease state of racism (white supremacy).

By and large we as African Americans have long chosen to ignore White claims about our inferiority, and striven as a group to prove ourselves equal to all other people on this planet. While such a response is noble and laudable, it has not resulted in a cessation of White supremacist propaganda emanating from either the White masses or the White House. At this juncture in history, then, we must address these insults head-on whenever and wherever they appear, lest we lose another generation of Black youths to the forces of racism that have instilled in too many of them a sense of hopelessness and inferiority.

Ms. Barr’s comments resonate with many Whites not only because such sentiments have been so often repeated, but also because the destructive black ape image is subtly perpetuated by recurrent “King Kong” movies implanted in the national psyche. Over fifty years ago, African American talk show host Louis Lomax questioned the distinguished anthropologist Ashley Montague about White America’s obsession with equating Black people with apes. The comparison, Montague stated, was absurd because apes have thin lips and Black people have thick lips. Apes have straight hair and Black people have woolly, kinky or nappy hair. Apes have thick hair covering their bodies, while Black males and females generally have sparse  hair growth over their torsos. Apes have flat behinds, while Black people have protruding behinds. Finally, a shaved ape has pink skin, whereas Black people range in color from Black to brown to yellow—not pink.

Even more absurd is the perennial claim of Black genetic inferiority, specifically as to intelligence.  On an annual basis all American students are given batteries of standardized academic examinations to determine their intelligence levels. When tested, African Americans tend to score lower than their White counterparts. It is from the generalized results of these intelligence tests that most White supremacists derive their opinions that Black people are genetically inferior to Whites. Of course these and all other so-called objective measures used in this society to define intelligence are created by White people based on White culture and experiences and then applied to Black people who have been systematically excluded from such culture and experiences, and who have generally been subject to an inferior public school education.

For decades White educators and researchers have been puzzled by the persistent IQ disparity between African Americans and Whites, despite sporadic efforts to improve the quality of education provided Black students. The answer is simple. In a U.S. utopia where Black youths have experiences similar to those of Whites—including a stable home environment, gainfully employed parents, nutritious meals, excellent health care, clean and secure communities, first class educational institutions with supportive instructors, diverse recreational facilities, positive media images, favorable law enforcement contacts, a  wholesome respect for one’s ethnic group and its history, self-respect and a sense of belonging to the societal whole, rather than being part of a despised and ostracized minority—the IQ gap will close.  To use a well-worn cliché, this is not rocket science! There is an ever-widening gulf between the experiences of Black and White Americans that, under President Donald J. Trump, Whites in general are no longer feigning an interest in closing. Studies have shown that when African Americans experience educational parity with Whites, Black performance on such standardized tests as the SAT, ACT, GRE, etc., is virtually equivalent to their White counterparts.

Make no mistake about it, paleontologists, anthropologists, geneticists, etc., have shown that Black people are the genetically dominant parents of the human family.  Our dominance is so apparent to White people that they have enshrined the concept that only one drop of Black “blood” determines that one is Black. So, for example, former President Barack Obama is Black as is former San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. In other words, if one is part Black and part White, the recessive White genes are completely obliterated. How, then, in some warped minds, does genetic dominance equate to genetic inferiority?

Black History

To counter the longstanding, calculated effort to inferiorize African Americans and to suppress, distort or ignore the history of Black people by the Western academic, scientific and media establishments, I have produced a video documentary titled “When Black Men Ruled The World.” Since its production in 1991, revelations regarding the Black origin of civilization in Egypt (i.e., Kemet, “The Black Land”) and the global expanse of Black people in antiquity and their achievements have been staggering! All of which underscores the world’s indebtedness to its Black forefathers and contradicts the myth that the Black race is inferior.

The words of White author Flora Lugard shed light on the grandeur of Blacks in antiquity:

The annals of all of the great early nations of Asia Minor are full of them. The Mosaic records allude to them frequently; but while they are described as the most powerful, the most just, and the most beautiful of the human race, they are constantly spoken of as black, and there seems to be no other conclusion to be drawn then that at that remote period of history, the leading race of the Western World was a black race.

Another White scholar, Richard Poe, reveals that among ancient people there was the “presumption that dark skin connoted higher intelligence.” In other words, in the ancient world the blacker you were, the more intelligent you were assumed to be! Why did the ancients view Black people with such respect and reverence?  The answer is clear. DNA evidence traces all human beings back to one Black woman in Africa. Her offspring migrated from inner Africa down the Nile Valley and founded the ancient Egyptian civilization. From Africa these Black people spread around the world and laid the foundation of civilization in Greece, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley of India, Southern China, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands and Australia.

Furthermore, Dr. David Imhotep has written a remarkable book titled The First Americans Were Africans: Documented Evidence, proving that Black Africans began sailing to the Americas over fifty thousand years ago. He also reveals that later African migrants to the New World laid the foundation of the Olmec civilization in Mesoamerica that preceded the Toltecs, Aztecs and Mayans.  This is why there are similarities between the pyramids of Egypt and those in Mexico.

We are all aware of the astronomical and architectural genius of the Black Africans who designed and built the pyramids of Egypt that no scientists or architects are able to replicate today. However, few realize that some of the neighboring temples contain blocks of stone weighing between 200 and 400 tons each, which are arranged and set up with remarkable precision.  Fewer still are aware of the famous labyrinth—one of the wonders of the ancient world—built by the Pharaoh Amenemhet III, during Egypt’s Middle Kingdom.  To appreciate the magnitude of this three-thousand-room structure, one must read the account of Herodetus, the widely travelled Greek historian of the fifth century b.c.e.:

I have seen this building, and it is beyond my power to describe; it must have cost more in labour and money than all the walls and public works of the Greeks put together…The pyramids, too, are astonishing structures, each one of them equal to many of the most ambitious works of Greece; but the labyrinth surpasses them…

What’s more, in their book Temples of the African GodsMichael Tellinger and Johan Heine reveal that they have discovered in South Africa billions of ancient artifacts, including the remains of cities as large as Johannesburg and Los Angeles dating back over one hundred thousand years. Even more astounding are the findings of Dr. Thomas G. Brophy, a physicist who has worked with the NASA Voyager Project, the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the Japanese Space Program.  Dr. Brophy has written a book titled The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric Megalithic Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe. In a partially excavated site in the Egypto-Nubian desert at Nabta Playa in Africa, Dr. Brophy has examined a number of stone structures dating from about 7,000 b.c.e. to 20,000 b.c.e. On the basis of these findings it appears that the ancient Africans left a stone map of the universe that is so precise and detailed that in some instances it exceeds our astronomical knowledge of the 21st century. Dr. Brophy speaks of the site as a “detailed astrophysical map of truly astonishing accuracy, with no less than staggering implications.”

Fortunately, today anyone wishing to view evidence of the splendor of Black civilizations may visit KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, which will remain on display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles until January of 2019. A banner featuring a large black statue of the Pharaoh greets visitors as they enter the museum—confirming DNA studies that reveal that 96% of the King’s genetic markers match current populations of sub-Saharan Africa.

One need not dwell on ancient history to detect the genius of Black people. We see it all around us in science, architecture, medicine, law, literature, politics, athletics, etc. even in the midst of horrendous oppression. Let us consider a small sampling of such genius:

1. Eleven-year-old Ramarni Wilfred of Britain scored higher on his IQ test than scientists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking as well as entrepreneur Bill Gates.
2. Twelve-year-old twins Peter and Paula Imafidon are Black children from Waltham Forest in Northeast London. Nicknamed “The Wonder Twins,” they are Great Britain’s highest achievers. Their eldest sister, Anne-Marie, now 26, spoke six languages and graduated from high school at age 10. Another sister, Christina, now 22, at the age of 11 was the youngest student in history to attend a British university.
3. Mabou Loiseau of New York spoke eight languages—English, French, Creole, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Japanese and Russian—and played six instruments—harp, clarinet, violin, drums, piano and guitar—at the age of 7. Zora Ball of Philadelphia, also 7, is the youngest person to create a mobile video game.  Tony Hansberry, Jr. of Florida attended the Darnell-Cookman School of the Medical Arts at the age of 12, and at age 14 he developed a new suture method for hysterectomy patients.
4. In April of 2016, a group of eight African American girls from Detroit, Michigan, won first place in the “Under 14” category at the 13th annual KCF All Girls National Chess Championship in Chicago. Billed as the “biggest and most prestigious” all-girls under 18 tournament in the country, it drew nearly 450 players from 27 states.
5. In 2015, three Black men incarcerated at the Eastern New York Correctional Facility in Ulster County beat a Harvard University debate team in a match held at the university.

The Black Child

As we have noted, White politicians, clergymen, scientists, academicians and others have been obsessed with the nature of Black intelligence ever since the first Africans were enslaved in the New World. In his book titled Even the Rat Was White, social scientist Robert Guthrie has observed:

The earliest (formal) effort by American researchers to investigate the black-white differences using Intelligence tests was made in 1897 when G.R. Stetson tested 500 black and 500 white public school children in Washington, D.C. The test utilized by Stetson consisted of four stanzas of poetry which the experimenter read aloud and the children were required to repeat. It is interesting to observe that in this exercise, of which little publicity was made, the black children excelled the white children; consequently, it was determined that the memory technique was not a valid measure of intelligence.

Since 1897, numerous other tests have been administered to schoolchildren of all ages and all ethnic backgrounds. When racial distinctions have been highlighted, the media have constantly focused on Black deficits and White superiority.  What is virtually unknown is that, during the middle of the twentieth century, a number of White scientists conducted tests of Black and White neonates (newborns) apparently to determine their intelligence during their formative years before definitive socialization. While Black American children showed early precocity when compared to their White counterparts, African children were the most advanced.

During the 1950’s child development specialists Marcelle Geber and R.F.A. Dean conducted their studies in Kenya and Uganda. This was followed by similar investigations undertaken by Mary Ainsworth, another child development specialist, in South Africa and West Africa. Commenting on Geber’s discoveries, author Joseph C. Pearce has written:

She found [in Uganda] the most precocious, brilliant, and advanced infants and children ever observed anywhere. These infants had smiled, continuously and rapturously, from, at the latest, their fourth day of life…Sensor motor learning and general development were phenomenal. Indeed miraculous. These Ugandan infants were months ahead of American or European children. A superior intellectual development held for the first four years of life.

The following are comparisons made by Geber based on tests that she administered to African and European children:


Geber’s Black Child / White Child Developmental Comparison

1.  Being Drawn Up Into A Sitting Position Able To PreventThe Head From Falling Backward:
Black Child: 9 hours old
White Child: 6 weeks old
2.  With The Head Held Firmly, Looking At The Face Of The Examiner:
Black Child: 2 days old
White Child: 8 weeks old
3.  Supporting Himself In A Sitting Position And Watching HisReflection ln The Mirror:
Black Child: 7 weeks old
White Child: 20 weeks old
4.  Holding Himself Upright:
Black Child: 5 mos. old
White Child: 9 mos. old
5.  Taking The Round Block Out Of Its Hole In The Form-Board:
Black Child: 5 mos. old
White Child:  22 mos. old
6.  Standing Against The Mirror:
Black Child: 5 mos. old
White Child:  15 mos. old
7.  Walking To The Gesell Box To Look Inside:
Black Child: 7 mos. old
White Child:  15 mos. old
8.  Climbing The Steps Alone:
Black Child: 11 mos. old
White Child:  15 mos. old



The findings of Ainsworth were similar to those of Geber. The following are noteworthy:



Ainsworth’s Black Child / White Child Developmental Chart Comparison

1.  Mean Age At Which A Child Knew His Own Name:
Black Child: 8 ½ mos. old
White Child:  14 mos. old
2.  Mean Age At Which A Child Could Use Three Or More Words Appropriately:
Black Child: 10 ½ mos. old
White Child: 12 mos. old



As noted above, African American children have also shown remarkable precocity when compared to White children. Based on studies also conducted during the middle of the twentieth century, child development specialists Nancy Bayley and Etta Walters found that in “motor development” Black babies tended to be more advanced than White babies during the first 12 months. In the same vein, two other specialists, H. Knoblock and B. Pasamanick, have added that Black children have “superior motor scores and similar adaptive, language and personal-social cores, as compared with Whites through age two years.”

It should be pointed out that when the above scientists refer to Black children having “advanced motor skills” they are speaking of the children’s physical dexterity and straining to separate such behavior from that of advanced intellectual functioning. Recognizing this fallacious reasoning, psychologist Asa Hilliard has stated:

It is sometimes said that the precocity of the African [Black] child is only ‘physical’ and not ‘intellectual’ or ‘mental.’ There are two problems with such a statement: On the one hand, the developmental measures, which are cited in the professional literature, include measures of language and puzzle working (e.g. circle, square and triangle in a form board). Further, some of the ‘physical’ tasks which are measured included such things as intentional climbing and walking. Therefore, the use of language and intentional behavior hardly justifies the common investigative bias of calling some developmental test items ‘merely physical measures.’ On the other hand, there is no clear scientific distinction between ‘mental’ and ‘physical’ activities. It is more appropriate to think of these words as labels for aspects of the same human activity.  Thus, the child who climbs stairs or, better still, who dances, is clearly demonstrating the inseparable nature of ‘mental’ and ‘physical’ activity.  You simply cannot have one without the other.

Finally, a number of specialists have grappled with the issue of why Black children appear to lose their precocity after infancy as they begin the maturation process. In his book The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child, Amos Wilson has provided this opinion:

Generally, it would appear that the differences between black and white infants disappear between the ages of one and one half to two years and the equality of their mental and motor functioning begins to reverse in favor of the white child at around age three. We think that it is no coincidence that black intellectual functioning as compared to that of whites, as measured by standard I.Q. tests, begins to fall during the period beginning with the acquisition of language (starting somewhere around 12 to 18 months) and the formation of a stabilized personality structure (from three to five years).

For the first two to three years at least, it appears that the black child approaches the Greek ideal of a sound mind in a sound body. However, the ravages of racial prejudice and poverty destroy and distort much of his wonderful potential.

It is most interesting that White preoccupation with Black intelligence rarely if ever focuses on the above studies administered by White people using White standards that reveal the achievements of precocious Black children. Why is this information kept from the general public?  Are there more recent studies?  Do African and African American newborns still manifest these remarkable skills?



Black people do not resemble apes and have never been inferior to others.  As noted above, Black people are the genetically dominate parents of the human race who laid down the foundation of global civilization.  It is past time for White supremacists, who are not trained in genetics, to cease lying to themselves and to the public about the intelligence of people of African descent. It is also unconscionable for an ever-compliant media to continue dignifying these racists with generous coverage while ignoring the powerful evidence that refutes their malicious propaganda by revealing the truth about Black potential and achievements.

Rabbi’s Words Connect Jewish Talmud to Anti-Black Violence, Police Killings

Student Minister Demetric Muhammad, NOI Research Group

The Bible and the Holy Qur’an describe the creation of man as a sacred act. The Holy Qur’an states that Allah (God) created man of Black mud. The Bible states that man is created in the image of God. 

In the Bible David states that “you are all gods, children of the Most High God.” David’s son Solomon states, “I am Black but beautiful, oh you daughters of Jerusalem.”

What emerges from these various scriptural passages is a picture of humanity as divine, beautiful and Black.

The image of Black people in America has always been controversial. A pure and honest examination of scripture and world history reveals a persistent negative image portrayal of Black people. In fact, the Times of Israel reported just a few days ago that the Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel referred to Black people as monkeys. His office defended him by stating that the Chief Rabbi was only quoting a passage from the Talmud.

During the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s magnificent Saviours’ Day 2018 message, he cited instances that had taken place in Israel where spray-painted on churches were the graffiti words “Jesus was a monkey.” The Minister’s audience was shocked at learning of the Jewish hostility for Jesus coming out of Israel.

Most of the Minister’s audience is oblivious to the existence of the Jewish Talmud, the source where the Chief Rabbi learned to refer to Black people as monkeys.

“Jesus was a monkey” scrawled on Christian monastery in Israel.

It was the Jewish Talmud—a voluminous collection of rabbinical interpretations of the Torah—that introduced to the world the Hamitic Curse as an explanation for the origins of black skin and physical features. Even staunch critic of the Nation of Islam Harold Brackman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center tells us in his doctoral dissertation, “The Ebb and Flow of Conflict: A History of Black–Jewish Relations Through 1900,” that

There is no denying that the Babylonian Talmud was the first source to read a Negrophobic content into the episode by stressing Canaan’s fraternal connection with Cush. The Talmudic glosses of the episode added the stigma of blackness to the fate of enslavement that Noah predicted for Ham’s progeny…

The Minister also reminded his attentive Saviours’ Day audience of the many scandalous depictions of President Barack Obama by racist cartoonists, who portrayed him and his lovely wife, Michelle Obama, as monkeys or apes.

Rep. Todd Rokita

Indiana Representative Todd Rokita has sponsored a resolution that condemns our beloved Minister “for promoting ideas that create animosity and anger toward Jewish Americans and the Jewish religion.”

As a Black man, I find Congressman Rokita’s resolution ridiculous, offensive and wicked. It is especially offensive because he has never issued a resolution to condemn those who “promote ideas that create animosity and anger toward Black or African Americans.”

If he did, he would understand the sentiments being expressed by Minister Farrakhan and Black Americans who know all too well that in America no group has been the victim of “ideas that create animosity and anger” more than the American-born Black man and woman.

The record of history is clear: Minister Farrakhan’s words have never produced harm, suffering or the loss of life among the Jewish people. But the globally exported view that Jewish leaders have of Black people has been deadly!

In fact, a direct line of correlation can be drawn from the recent police killing of Stephon Clark in Sacramento, California, to the Jewish Talmud’s views of Black people as subhuman.

In an eye-opening and groundbreaking 2014 study titled “The Essence of Innocence: Consequences of Dehumanizing Black Children we learn about how Black children, especially Black boys, are on the receiving end of harsher punishments and longer prison sentences when they enter the criminal justice system. The abstract of the study defines its scope with the following:

The social category “children” defines a group of individuals who are perceived to be distinct, with essential characteristics including innocence and the need for protection. The present research examined whether Black boys are given the protections of childhood equally to their peers. We tested 3 hypotheses: (a) that Black boys are seen as less “childlike” than their White peers, (b) that the characteristics associated with childhood will be applied less when thinking specifically about Black boys relative to White boys, and (c) that these trends would be exacerbated in contexts where Black males are dehumanized by associating them (implicitly) with apes.

In describing a central aspect of their research and results, the authors state:

In this research, White participants who were subliminally exposed to images of apes before watching a video of police beating a Black man were more likely to endorse that beating, despite the extremity of the violence. Participants did not, however, endorse the same beating when the suspect was White or when they had not been primed with the ape image. In a follow-up study, Goff et al. coded newspaper articles about death-eligible criminal cases in Philadelphia for ape-related metaphors. They found that the frequency of ape-related imagery predicted whether or not criminals were executed by the state. Of importance, in neither study was racial prejudice (explicit or implicit) a significant predictor. That is, dehumanization uniquely predicted violence and its endorsement.

The researchers, whose article appears in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, cite the histories of Emmett Till and George Stinney Jr. to highlight the importance of their study tounderstanding the all-too-frequent phenomenon of violence against Black children:

In 1944, a Black 14-year-old, George Junius Stinney Jr., became the youngest person on record in the United States to be legally executed by the state (electrocuted without the benefit of a lawyer, witnesses, or a record of confession; Jones, 2007). And, notoriously, in 1955, a 14-year-old Black boy named Emmett Till was dragged from his bed, disfigured, and lynched for allegedly whistling at a White woman (Crowe, 2003). What psychological context could explain this treatment of children?

Prior to participating in this profound research report, one of the researchers, Phillip Atiba Goff, conducted research to examine the impacts of Blacks being associated with apes and monkeys. His team of researchers produced a report titled “Not Yet Human: Implicit Knowledge, Historical Dehumanization, and Contemporary Consequences.” Among their conclusions, the researchers state:

…the implicit association between Blacks and apes can lead to greater endorsement of violence against a Black suspect than against a White suspect. Finally, in Study 6, we demonstrated that subtle media representations of Blacks as apelike are associated with jury decisions to execute Black defendants.

This scientific study brings to light the danger of the Talmudic dehumanization of Black people that the Israeli chief rabbi articulated. And long before the Chief Rabbi of Israel, the revered twelfth-century rabbi Moses Maimonides, in his Guide for the Perplexed—considered the “greatest work of Jewish religious philosophy”—reinforced the racism of the Talmud when he said Black Africans were “irrational animals,” “lower than the rank of man but higher than the rank of the apes.” Whether it is classifying Blacks as subhuman “strange creatures” or associating black skin with a divine curse, the Talmudic view of Black people is bizarre, ignoble and grotesque. For Black people, it is a deadly view.

The danger of the Talmudic view of Black people becomes especially important when we consider the globally exported and highly influential entertainment and pop culture industry of America. At the center of American popular culture is the motion picture industry, better known as Hollywood. Author Neal Gabler discusses thehistory of Hollywood in his book An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood. Prof. Gabler’s description of the Jewish founding, control and influence of Hollywood is illuminating. He writes:

What is amazing is the extent to which they succeeded in promulgating this fiction throughout the world. By making a “shadow” America, one which idealized every old glorifying bromide about the country, the Hollywood Jews created a powerful cluster of images and ideas—so powerful that, in a sense, they colonized the American imagination….Ultimately, American values came to be defined largely by the movies the Jews made.

As to what role the Talmud has played in the creation of this “powerful cluster of images and ideas” that have “colonized the American imagination, we reference the words of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Herman Wouk.   In his book This is My God: The Jewish Way of Life, he wrote:

The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion.  Whatever laws, customs or ceremonies we observe — whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists — we follow the Talmud.  It is our common law.

The powerful images and ideas that include the Talmudic dehumanization of Black people have been referenced and described by screenwriter Dalton Trumbo when he wrote:

[Hollywood made] tarts of the Negro’s daughters, crap shooters of his sons, obsequious Uncle Toms of his fathers, superstitious and grotesque crones of his mothers, strutting peacocks of his successful men, psalm-singing mountebanks of his priests, and Barnum and Bailey side-shows of his religion.

Jewish authors Barry Schwartz and Robert Disch, of the book White Racism: Its History, Pathology, and Practice, point exclusively to Hollywood as the fount from which the sewage of anti-Black racism and dehumanization have flowed and infected the world:

This statement should surprise no one, since Hollywood, more than any other institution, has been responsible for the glorification of the South, past and present, and for creating the image of black inferiority. It created the lying, stealing, childish, eyeball-rolling, feet-shuffling, sex-obsessed, teeth-showing, dice-shooting black male, and told the world this was the real Negro in the U.S.A. It invented the Negro “mammy” whose breasts were always large enough to suckle an entire nation, and who always loved old massa’s chilluns more than she loved her own. The men of Fake-town have brainwashed America and the entire world with the brush of white supremacy.

According to a report titled Diversity in Film and Television, authored by the diversity-monitoring entity called Media Scope, scientific studies have proven that the constant exposure to dehumanizing images of Black people in the media negatively impacts how whites view Blacks.  The Media Scope report states:

Considerable public concern has arisen over the issue of media diversity, as it is generally accepted that mass media has strong social and psychological effects on viewers. Film and television, for example, provide many children with their first exposure to people of other races, ethnicities, religions and cultures. What they see onscreen, therefore, can impact their attitudes about the treatment of others. One study found, for instance, that two years of viewing Sesame Street by European-American preschoolers was associated with more positive attitudes toward African and Latino Americans. Another study found that white children exposed to a negative television portrayal of African-Americans had a negative change in attitude toward blacks.

These disrespectful images of Black people, which permeate all forms of entertainment, serve a hidden role in psychologically programming the hatred of Black people into the thinking of all who are exposed to them. Hard-wired, now, into the thinking of even some in the Black community is the Hollywood-created, Talmudic-based image of Black humanity as subhuman, evil and shameful.

The negative stereotypes and images of Black people that have long been staples of Hollywood movie production are mirror reflections of the Jewish Talmud’s “ideas that create animosity and anger toward Black or African Americans.” Research studies have proven the dangerous effect of those views. Yet Congressman Rokita has done nothing to interfere with the proliferation of these ideas that remain in Hollywood and the music industry.

The significance of what we have presented in this essay is the role that the Talmudic view of Black people has played in what happened to Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, DeAunta Terrell Farrow and most recently Stephon Clark. All of these were young Black males who were murdered by either police or a private citizen who looked at these beautiful young men and saw them as older, menacing and threatening. And now we understand how these corrupt images of Black males got into the minds of their murderers.

I say that if Congressman Rokita will not sponsor a resolution to condemn all who promote “ideas that create animosity and anger toward Black or African Americans,” he proves that his sensitivity to dangerous ideas only applies to the Jewish community. He proves that at the heart of his condemnation of Minister Farrakhan is his hatred of the Minister for loving the long-vilified and dehumanized Black people enough to challenge all who mean us harm!

Why Do Jews Hate Jesus & Mary?

Why Do Jews Hate Jesus & Mary?

Muslims & Christians Revere Jesus and Mary; Jews hate them both.

The recent attacks on the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan have focused attention on the larger issue of Christian-Jewish relations. In a major address at the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day convention on February 25, 2018, Minister Farrakhan presented the harshly anti-Christian words of the Babylonian Talmud—a book revered and followed by today’s Jews, but little known among Christians. Not only is it the source of the most racist of religious teachings—the Curse of Ham—the Talmud says, among many other vile things, that for “leading Israel astray” Jesus is forever remaining seated in a cauldron of boiling excrement in hell. Farrakhan also revealed that the followers of this strange Jewish doctrine attacked a Christian monastery in Israel and painted “Jesus is a monkey” on the walls and further desecrated the church by burning the door.

“Jesus is a monkey” painted on the walls and burnt door of a Christian monastery in Israel.

The “boiling in excrement” passage in the Jewish holy book is highly offensive to all decent people and especially Christians. But it is just as repulsive for Muslims because of the high honor that the Holy Quran bestows upon Jesus and Mary of the Bible. Geoffrey Parrinder explains in his book Jesus in the Qur’an:

“The Qur’an gives a greater number of honourable titles to Jesus than to any other figure of the past. He is a ‘sign’, a ‘mercy’, a ‘witness’ and an ‘example’. He is called by his proper name Jesus, by the titles Messiah (Christ) and Son of Mary, and by the names Messenger, Prophet, Servant, Word and Spirit of God. The Qur’an gives two accounts of the annunciation and birth of Jesus, and refers to his teachings and healings, and his death and exaltation. Three chapters or suras of the Qur’an are named after references to Jesus (3, 5 and 19); he is mentioned in fifteen suras and ninety-three verses. Jesus is always spoken of in the Qur’an with reverence; there is no breath of criticism, for he is the Christ of God.” [i]

Nation of Islam named by Minister Farrakhan for the mother of Jesus, Mosque Maryam.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is most devout on that critical subject. In 1988, he dedicated the main Nation of Islam mosque in Chicago and named it “Mosque Maryam” after Mary, the mother of Jesus. Minister Farrakhan explained that Mary, according to the Holy Qur’an, is referred to as “the best of women”—the example for all women. Indeed, she represents the standard of what a righteous woman is.[ii]

Since their immigration to the New World, Jews have enjoyed a more cordial relationship with Gentiles than they had in Europe. Both communities chose to leave their often violent intertribal conflicts in the Old World, as they sought the benefits of whiteness that came with the highly profitable systems of slavery and sharecropping

But now many Christians are rethinking their relationship with Jews on a spiritual level. What they are finding out about the viciously anti-Christian teachings of the Jewish faith is shocking indeed. Below is a summary of the filthy Jewish teachings about Mary, Mother of Jesus, in the Talmud. It is provided by Michael Hoffman in his all-encompassing 1102-page book examining the Talmud, titled Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit (Coeur d’Alene, ID: Independent History and Research, 2008).

Insults Against Blessed Mary

The Talmud says Jesus’ mother was a whore: “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.” In Shabbath 104b it states that Jesus’ mother, “Miriam the hairdresser,” had sex with many men. (BT Sanhedrin 106a)

The Talmud fabricates an incident that “proves” that Jesus “is a bastard,” that he is the son of a niddah (a child conceived during a woman’s menstrual period). 

The Talmud says that the rabbis questioned Mary and promised her “eternal life” if she would admit how Jesus was conceived. Here is the fabricated exchange:

“He said to her, ‘My daughter, if you will answer the question I will put to you, I will bring you to the world to come’ (eternal life). She said to him, ‘Swear it to me.’

“Rabbi Akiba, taking the oath with his lips but annulling it in his heart, said to her, ‘What is the status of your son?’ She replied, ‘When I entered the bridal chamber I was niddah (menstruating) and my husband kept away from me; but my best man had intercourse with me and this son was born to me.’ Consequently the child was both a bastard and the son of a niddah.”

Other vile passages describe Jesus as the “inciter,” who has “brought forth witchcraft from Egypt.” They refer to his mother as “Miriam the hairdresser,” a woman of loose morals who cheats on her husband, having sex with many men. Hoffman references Peter Schäfer, Jesus in the Talmud (Princeton University Press, 2007):

“If the Talmud takes it for granted that Jesus’ mother was having sex with someone other than her husband, then it follows that Jesus was a mamzer, a bastard. In order to be categorized as mamzer it didn’t matter whether his biological father was indeed his mother’s sex partner, and not her legal husband, the supposed fact that she had committed adultery made Jesus’ legal status dubious. ….”

None of this satanic Jewish hatred of Jesus and Mary seems to bother such Christian theologians as Pat Robertson, John Hagee, and even Billy Graham, all rabidly pro-Israel Zionists, whose belief in the Jews as “the Chosen People” is and was absolute. The current Christian president, Donald Trump, can be added to that list. Their apparent excusing of the Talmud, which condemns their Saviour—and His mother—to eternal damnation is itself inexcusable.

How incredible it is that in 2018, it is a Muslim—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan—who is the most strident defender and protector of the faith of Jesus and Mary against the Talmudic slander of the Jews. That he does it from the Nation of Islam’s Mosque Maryam is divine irony. Perhaps when the satanic Jews show up with their “anti-Semitism” slander against Farrakhan, we will finally make them answer for the despicable way they have treated Jesus and His Mother Mary, and the family of God. 



Some Talmud citations concerning Christianity

  • Christians are allied with hell, and Christianity is worse than incest. (Babylonian Talmud, tractate Avodah Zarah 17a)
  • Going to prostitutes is the same as becoming a Christian. (BT Avodah Zarah 17a)
  • Those who read the Gospels are doomed to hell. (BT Sanhedrin 90a)
  • When the Messiah comes, he will destroy the Christians. (BT Sanhedrin 99a)
  • Jews must destroy the New Testament bibles of the Christians (BT Shabbat 116a). The Israelis burned hundreds of them in occupied Palestine on March 23, 1980.

Editor’s note: The name “Jesus” is Greek. There is no “J” letter in the Hebrew language, and the letter “J” did not appear in the English language until several hundred years ago. Yoshua is his name in ancient Hebrew. In the Holy Qu’ran his proper name in Arabic is Isa. Prophet Isa was not a European. He never lived in Europe. He never missioned in Europe; nor did he speak any European languages. We use the appellation “Jesus” because of its popularity in the consciousness of the people, not because of its authenticity.
