The Original Arabs Were Black

Bertram Sidney Thomas was a historian and former prime minister of Muscat and Oman. A civil servant of England, he was the first documented Westerner to travel across the Empty Quarter, the sand desert that covers one-third of the Arabian Peninsula. In his book, “The Arabs: The Life Story of a People Who Have Left Their Deep Impress on the World,” he writes that the natives of Arabia “were not the familiar Arabs of our time but a very much darker people.”

The Term ‘Arab’ Is Often Intentionally Misemployed

The essay “Myths, Hypotheses and Fact Concerning the Origin of Peoples,” the author argues that many utilize the political strategy of purposely referring to non-Arab aspects and people as Arab in order to carry out a political agenda. They either do so to exaggerate the size of the Arab population or “claim historical rights.”

    For further study read the writings of Dana Marniche and Dr. Wesley Muhammad in his seminal work: Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam http://www.theallahteam.com/#!product/prd12/1968752675/black-arabia-%26-the-african-origin-of-islam.

  2. Welcome to Mother Earth. The Spirit Dance continues. The Elders speak to the fact that we are all of the human race. The Circle of Life is the spectrum of our Journey. Keep dancing my people. .The truth will provide the path of Wisdom that will balance the Universe

  3. NEWS FLASH: Based on the discovery of the human genome, we ALL are from Africa. So what's the point here? One world. One species. One race. One reason for our existence. Time to move on, and move up, people.

  4. Arabs are a language based, culturally defined people, and have little to to with genetic composition. The Arab identity has become inextricably linked with Islam, not with standing the existence of a modest number of Jewish, and Christian Arabs. As Islam spread beyond the Arabian Penisular, the Arab identity spread with it. While all Arabs may not presently be Muslim, they
    , none the less, own their Arab identity to the spread of Islam.

  5. More uneducated uninformed ignorant revisionist history idiocy from the nation of Islam nuts. Physical anthropology and genetics proves otherwise. Not that you actually know what haplotypes are? But Arabs are predominantly of the haplotype group J which isn't African

  6. Actually no the African genome project found multiple unknown hominid DNA in sub Saharan African blacks not found in either Caucasian or Asian population. Cromagnon was the first modern humans and cromagnon wasn't African but migrated into Africa breeding with the various preexisting species of hominid

  7. Blacks couldn't even invent the wheel lol now they're father of the Arabs and Semitic peoples lol physical anthropology and genetics proves otherwise

  8. And btw using paintings by European artists showing Arabs riding horses doesn't exactly back your uneducated afrocentric idiocy about Arabs being black. Horse's aren't native to Africa and were domesticated by Caucasian people in the Russian steps 6,500 years ago and introduced to Egypt 3,500 years ago along with the wheel another white invention during the Hittite invasion of Egypt

  9. Buwahaha more afrocentric idiocy from the nation of Islam nuts at it's finest no actually physical anthropology and genetics proves otherwise

  10. Here, in America in the inner cities the term IS subjective, that's when the garment of Islam is exposed. I am Muslim and a Black Man.
