Cultural Appropriation From Napoleon To Gen Z
Western Culture is known for its addiction to appropriation. It is the basis of colonization after all. Scouring the earth, assimilating all they cross, under the cross of religion. All while raping other cultures of their spiritual and historical artifacts. Raping the land, resources and the women, ensuring their genetic influence and literally changing the faces of the people they encounter.
Napoleon raided Egypt, draining it of whatever artifacts were left un-raided. A brutal rape of historic and spiritual value that is still shamelessly on display in the finest museums in Europe. This despite the continuous protest of many African countries. “But where would they put them? We’re doing you a favor by holding on to them for you.”
Most people with a conscious are sickened by the sight of a swastika. Just last year, Justine Trudeau used a single thin flag of a swastika, at a peaceful protest, gathered at the Canadian capital, as an even thiner excuse to declare martial law on his own citizens, with the ability to cease bank accounts. As unnerving as that symbol is, has anyone considered the fact that the sick sociopath who appropriated that symbol stole it from my spirit? What about that spiritual theft? This ancient symbol of harmony, balance, justice and reciprocity, was stolen out of knowledge through Napoleon’s Egyptian raids. It ended up being used by a vatican of elites to manipulate peoples spiritual energy, all while telling them that such practices are too dangerous and not of god. Therefore, one must direct all spiritual energy through the church and only the church. The symbol still found in many parts of Africa, was exported to Asia a millennia ago and still retains its original meaning in those regions. This symbol was brought to the world by Africans after the last world flood.
The ever controversial “N” word. Used for centuries to denigrate an entire demographic was then reclaimed by the young men of that demographic as a symbol of their spiritual bond. Hip Hop started as a social movement that sought to fight against violent social programming. Music, break dancing and Hip Hop culture were clear and loud alternatives to gang life. I see a short history of knowledge coming to the surface only to be snatched away, like our heroes from the 60’s who were obsessed with learning our true collective history. NG or NGR is an ancient African word that means a person of glory or greatness, a spiritual entity that is loved. Just on the cusp of this mass realization the masters of the masses stepped in and that word, along with the spirit Hip Hop was appropriated though music industry. The “N” word had long been constructed into a social condition that captured a demographic in a snapshot of its worst possible state. That snapshot was then exported to the entire world, though a music genre specifically defined by associating NG with violent gangsters. Are you aware that the first “Hip Hop” group signed to a major music label was NWA? Let that one sink in the brain for a hot second. NWA! This was the birthplace of the rebrand “Rap” music and Gangster Rap was king.
An afternoon of research will lead you to the true roots of “Rock n Roll” when you hear some of the originals that were blatantly stolen by Elvis, The Beetles and others. At least samples still give credit. It’s not even hidden that the broadway musical format is a deconstructed copy of jazz. Still, it’s beyond obvious that yearly if not seasonal, fashions trends that start in “Black hoods” somehow end up on “fashion week” runways with nothing but “street credit”.
Black women on Tick Tock regularly mention that videos of their dances are suppressed in the algorithm and then copied by others who get outrageous follows. At the start of this year they started a tag called “Black Girl Follow Train” as an avenue to be heard by and support each other. Tick Tock pretty much confirmed the noted segregation by limiting the functionality of any post with the tag “Black Girl Follow Train”. The tag was declared a “sponsor” which limits how it can be forwarded to others.
Until recently anyone who was up to date on this type of knowledge was called “woke”. That is until Gen Z appropriated the term to mean anyone with a liberal agenda. Most of Gen Z’s language of slang are from words appropriated from queer and BIPOC culture. Just google “Gen z appropriating language” and see what comes up.
All of the Abrahamic religions have virtues and they are all rooted in Egypt. The story of any bible literally starts there. Today it is clear that the stories of Christianity are copied from much older Egyptian traditions. What Christianity does different is to institutionalize marriage, making the act only legally binding if through them. This also legalized the subservience of women and the ownership of children. The next incarnation of the Abrahamic religion was Islam and now you can have as many wives as you can afford.
It is sociologically noted that Asian culture relates person to group, that Western culture relates person to object and African culture relates person to spirit. Consider that in Western culture I often have to relate to a person as an object in order to relate affectively. That is taxing on both the psyche and spirit. How many people fathom that you must relate to spirt in order to affectively relate to me. In the West, this very act was punishable by death for about 500 years. Echoes of the witch hunts have only recently been replaces by stories of Harry Potter.
No wonder, Ya’ll!…
But now taking this perspective into consideration you can more likely guess how I broke Chat straight out of the gate, day one. Wonder what happened to all of the initial buzz? By different means, a handful of interfacers got Chat GPT to act a fool and it was taken down for reprogramming. This was about 6-4 weeks ago and has informed me how best to interact with this platform. Screen shots will be included in the next article which explores the limitations and cautions of Chat GPT.
That’s an upcoming article….
