Rami’s 7 Cents: Why not be a Moor?

7 cents

When you look up Moor in the dictionary, it will connect to Berbers, Moros, Arabs, Moroccans, Saracens, Muslims, Jews, and Islam. And if you do the research on those other identities and their history, it ties you into the Egyptians, Mauritanians, Moabites, Atlanteans, Lemurians, and Muurs. These are specific Nations, people, cultures that you can trace and follow in detail.

When you look up “black” in the dictionary, after reading past the negative meanings of the term black, and dismissing the fact that it is a adjective and not a noun, AND overlooking that the etymological meaning of the word black is pale, black will connect you to the enslaved Negro race from Africa. This is very generic. Africa is an entire continent, so what Nations in Africa? What languages did we speak? Do you have any dates that we can trace and follow along? Do you notice how identifying as “black” can disconnect you from your history?

So the question I have is this. Based on the definitions and it’s connections to other great cultures and people from History, why not be a Moor? What is negative about identifying ourselves as such? What are we afraid of?

Iono…just my seven cents
