"Sow good seeds and "Spring" forth prosperity."
The Year Of Prosperity: How Well Did You Sow
When this year of 2014 first started, it was declared as the year of prosperity.
The thing that was ironic about this declaration is how much it snowed. Some of you were complaining about the snow but fail to see the irony of it. Man listen… When you break down snow and ice, it turns into water and what does water do people??.. Water makes things grow!
So, if you sowed well wether through hard work, dedication, consistency, volunteering, and etc.. Then you will “Spring” forth and prosper!

The Greco-Romans made it clear that civilization was founded by Blacks, the so-called sons of Ham. Although this was their view beginning with Hume, and Napoleon, up until today western Europeans have tried to deny Black or Negro people an ancient HISTORY.
To deny the Black origin of civilization Europeans created the Hamitic myth, that black skinned whites founded the ancient civilizations. A major component of this myth is that the Berbers are remnants of this ancient white population that lived in Africa during antiquity.
Cheikh Anta Diop in The African Origin of Civilization, discussed the duel role of the Hamitic myth in situating the Negro vs the white negro. To justify the Atlantic slave trade and the enslavement of African negroes, and explain the contemporary relations between Blacks and whites, Europeans claimed Ham, of the Bible was cursed blacken and made into the negro [so he could be a servant of the Europeans].
In relation to ancient civilization, on the otherhand, the Hamites were a paleo-mediterranean white race to which we owe all the ancient civilizations, including Egypt. Diop explains how Champolion-Figeac was opposed to Volney, another French scholar, who had wrote that the ancient Egyptian was a typical negro. It was Champolion who invented the myth that the Egyptians were white featured [and skinned] blacks and the Berbers were remnants of this ancient white race.
They created this myth even though the Greco-Romans claimed the Berbers were negroes from Atlas mountains across west Africa
