Of Moors and Mongols (a poem)


When the moon is in Mars & the sun is in Saturn,

Long after the towers of Gemini have fallen & the mood set for the mad trumpeter to play to his ruin.

After Bacon’s dream is pushed to the edge of nightmare and Kings dream has been rendered close to  peril,

400 seasons thus will the false heirs of Romulus & Remus be vexed, the zealots of Hakenkruez flag laying in tatters,

Venus then eclipsed, with aurum et ferro both Moor & Mongol shall meet at the Rhine.

About this poem:

For anyone who has ever read a translation of Michel de Nostredame bka Nostradamus’s prophecies the influence of his quatrains is evident. This is a poem I’ve had running around in my head for years. I didn’t receive this poems subject matter while in a prophetic trance as Nostradamus received his quatrains but I will say I feel it is a prophecy of sorts. The way prophecy plays out can be varied and in many cases is subject to the interpretation of those effected (or not effected) by prophecy. I’m interested in seeing what readers think this “poetic prophecy” is alluding to.


Why are conservatives so angry about Welfare?


Welfare is a hot button issue. Id like to try to explain how I look at the welfare system and why I see it a bit differently than others. I also will touch on why I think so many conservatives have such a negative attitude towards it.


I will begin by stating one of the perhaps more radical views I have on Welfare recipients. It is simply this – If a person is happy living off the tuna can existence Welfare and Food stamps provide why would I be upset at them for being slackers? Its not like they live on the same level of existence I do on my meager 51k a year income? In cities that dole out the higher amounts of aid recipients get about $400.00 bucks a month plus about 180 in food stamps. If giving a family food stamps stops them or their kids from committing crime I think it would be all the better.. Now this is just one way I look at the issue of welfare but I think it is pertinent. Especially in the face of so many angry Americans who act as if that $400.00 dollar a month aid comes directly out of their personal accounts. As if they each pay $400.00 bucks a month to support a slacker not the reality that Welfare to families cost tax payers more like .013 cent on the tax dollar. .013 cent. http://myesoteric.hubpages.com/hub/How-Much-of-Your-Tax-Dollar-Really-Does-Go-to-Help-the-Free-Loading-Indigent-Ought-to-Get-a-Job-Americans Is this what all these people are so angry about? Well sadly we know this is not the full case. Unfortunately attitudes towards race have been manipulated so even though Whites receive 69% of available federal aid its an image of a fat Black lady with screaming rug rats as your stereotypical welfare queen.


I will admit I believe Welfare has stagnated many peoples and I of course would like to again point out the higher % of those stagnated people are Anglo Americans.


Personally id like to see long term job works programs tied into welfare & by long term I mean job works plans that provide employment for 5 to 10 years. There’s enough dirty streets & cracked roads to demand attention for this long. Also we don’t need welfare to work programs that pays the recipient minimum wage or less & causes more hardships on a single parent than the job benefits can offset(such as finding & paying for childcare & transportation cost)


Another numbers trick is that when looking at the Federal Budget it appears that Welfare cost the tax payers only a few billion dollars less than our defense budget(which we are in so in need of increasing due to terrorist and rouge nations we could scrape the turf with using tech from the 1970‘s) The truth Welfare to families cost the government about 275 million. A pittance compared to our defense budget.


Projected Federal Budget showing total Welfare budget to be less than half of the known Defense budget. When adjusted for what actual goes to families Welfare is less than 5% of the total "known" military budget

Projected Federal Budget showing total Welfare budget to be less than half of the known Defense budget. When adjusted for what actual goes to families Welfare is less than 5% of the total “known” military budget

Not only Whites but many Blacks and other minorities have been bamboozled into thinking Welfare recipients are a bunch of loafers and that they are some sort of crucial drain on our economy. Instead of having the moral empathy to support our fellow Americans in need we’ve turned them into unwanted scapegoats.




I would like to leave you the reader with a list of 5 common Myths about people on Welfare courtesy of Nichole Jaworski, CBS Charlotte News


Myths About Welfare Recipients

5. People who receive welfare are lazy and do not want to work.

Fact: The majority of people who are on welfare are able-bodied and want to work, however they can not find stable employment. Still, many work irregular, low-wage jobs in between receiving welfare.

4. Welfare recipients “milk the system” and fraudulently obtain benefits.

Fact: “The Welfare Queen” was a term first used by President Reagan. Reagan talked about how a Chicago woman abused the system and had 80 different identities and was receiving around $150K in benefits each year. The image portrayed was that of a black woman. Here’s an interesting fact about “The Welfare Queen,” … there is no proof that she ever existed. It is believed that Reagan either falsified the entire story to gain support for his belief that welfare benefits should be reduced, or that there was some truth to the story, however Reagan drastically exaggerated the level of welfare abuse.

3. Most woman on welfare continue to have babies so that they can maximize the amount of benefits that they receive.

Fact: The average family on welfare has 2.8 children. Furthermore, only one out of every 10 mothers on welfare has more than 3 children.

2. A lot of welfare recipients are drug addicts and alcoholics and they stay poor as a result of their addictions.

Fact: Most often, poverty in itself is not caused by addiction, but rather an addiction is the result of falling into poverty. Furthermore, people of all socioeconomic backgrounds suffer from addictions.

1. Most of the people on welfare are African-Americans.

Fact: Think again! The margin between Caucasians and African-Americans who are on welfare is extremely narrow — 38.8 percent of Caucasians, and 39.8 percent of African-Americans are on welfare.

The Hugh Cipher study guide to Accurate world history ,the history of African culture and civilization and a synopsis of world civilization as a whole pt 1

To understand true history one must 1st place things into their proper context. Not only have Afro Americans and colonized Africans  been taught a warped ,biased, white washed Eurocentric  world view but so have Europeans and most other ethnic groups.


Today much of ancient, medieval and renaissance Europe has been romanticized and much of ancient, medieval Africa has been vilified. Europeans have been taught they have ruled or been in a dominant position since recorded history. Only truthful European historians speak to the truth that Europe rose from a very primitive and barbaric state to the level of dominance they posses today.

Many White supremacist like to believe genetics or some sort of inherent superiority has played a part in this. This is of course a fallicy. Primarily because European genetic superiority doesn’t exist. This plus the fact as you will see through out this study guide caprice, serendipity ie: lady luck has played a major part in Europe’s rise. Also Europe’s location in today’s climatic era is prime for benefiting from all three civilizations that surround it ie: Africa, Asia and Asia Minor (middle east).

I will do my best to keep this study guide as simple as possible because I wish the lay person to be able to digest its content. I will begin first with two video documentaries that will lay the ground work and tone for this study guide. The first part of the study guide is a segment of  the BBC documentary “The Incredible Human Journey”.

This segment deals with the 1st Europeans and where they came from. The original man ,homo sapiens sapines ie: modern human came out of Africa and eventually colonized the world. I begin the study guide with this segment because many don’t realize in fact the 1st Europeans where from Africa thus looked very African http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1177123/The-European-Created-fragments-fossil-face-forbears-35-000-years-ago.html

This documentary is an excellent study of this fact and after watching this segment I recommend watching the whole documentary.

(Part 1 of 5 follow links on site to complete)

The next video with in the study guide is Jared  Diamond’s

“Gun Steel and Germs”


This documentary breaks down why humans in many areas of the world have remained at so called primitive or tribal levels of  culture and civilization. This documentary does an excellent job of explaining the fact that to create or build a complex or high civilization agriculture is essential. It explains this and the fact that domesticated crops and animals are native to only one area of the world which is the Levant(middle east, fertile crescent) and coincidentally this is where you see high civilization springing up 1st around and near Asia Minor (the Levant ). I am a subscriber to Kemit Nut(Egypt) having all of the elements that constitute high civilization 1st (ie: agriculture, government, architecture and writing) not Sumer which is what most historians subscribe to.

Sites like Gobleki Tepi …..



seem to have been founded by advanced hunter gatherers who being located in Asia Minor(near modern day Turkey) had so many wild fruit and grain plants they so far are one exception to agriculture predating the building of a complex society

To clarify the way the terms Eurocentric,Afrocentric,Arab & Sino/Asiacentric within this study guide are used are as labels for anthropological lenses. These lenses or view points can simply be a way of looking at a subject or it can mean they are being used in a prejudicial & or racist sence.
For example being Afrocentric can simply mean looking at history or any subject from an African centered view point such as looking at the colonial age from the view point of African nations & tribes that were conquered or invaded instead of from the colonizer’s point of reference (ie:the way we all were taught in Jr.High & High school)
Racist Eurocentric view point on the other hand looks at Egypt as having no connection to Black Africa & any Blacks depicted in artifacts where ever slaves or Nubians & looks at Nubia as a lesser copy of Egypt when in reality there is much evidence that Nubia is older than Egypt. The written evidence (such as from Herodotus’s retelling of Ethiopia /Nubia’s assertion that Egypt began as a Nubian colony)has been ignored for centuries & even recent archeological evidence has been hidden

With in this study guide I will emphasize using critical thinking is a  must. Even with the new truths European academics put forth the old ugly head of Eurocentric bias still rears its self from time to time and all researchers for the truth should be aware of this. This is the same for biased Afro Centric sources. Bias cannot be allowed to pollute our perception of the truth and we all being human must constantly guard against this even with in our own research. 


Critical Thinking Guide:

1.)    Look out for and discern Euro, Asian or Afro centric bias as you study. This may prove difilcult at first & a quick cheat sheet for this is:

A.) Most Eurocentric histories will claim African/Black civilizations & cultures are White or some obscure non Black African peoples & will make it a point to mention this as if  a fact when there is no aparent need to mention race at all. Euro centric historians do this and or toatally ignore African elements in history.

B.) One marker  Asian or “Monglo-centric” history is the fact countries like China teach a multi regional genisis of modern man rather than the thouroughly proven Out of Africa theory of human genisis

C.) Some Afro centric historians speak on theory or hypothesis as fact with out enough supporting data. Some Afro centric historians return the favor to Eurocentric historians and claim each and every ancient civilizations were Black.

2.)    Realize the fact that Africans haved played a far larger part with in the origins of humanity, civilization and culture than previously believed but many of a Eurocentric mind set will vehemently contest many of these findings.

The Black Shang Theory….Explained



One of the 1st  theories I came across when I began studying Afro centric history was the Black origins of Chinese civilization or commonly known as the “Black Shang Theory”. What I have discovered is that this theory is in error due to the context it is usually delivered and taken in. The Theory states that the Shang Dynasty which was a pre imperial dynasty located near the Yellow rivers valley was of “Black” African origins. It is commonly agreed the Shang developed much of the  roots of what would become dynastic China. This theory was developed before genetic testing so many claims could not be verified or debunked. Artifacts and skelatal remains of the Shang depicted a “non” mongoloid peoples.  This lead to the remains being labeled “proto-mongoloid” by  western anthropologist.  The truth is that the Shang were a non mongoloid peoples being related to Melanesians and Polynesians. Here is where the “Black” Shang theory more than likely developed.  Melanesians look like Black Africans and Polynesians are dark skinned peoples also. With the advancement of genetics we have discovered although Melanesians and other dark skinned people may look like Africans outwardly they are Asians & Austaloids genetically. I believe when early Shang  artifacts were discovered their  “Black” appearance lead to them being labeled as a Black African peoples by Afro centrics. Euro centrics created and applied the ambiguous term “proto-mongoloid” to the Shang. (Creating obscure terms is a practice Euro centrics have long done when they wished to deny an African presence or possible African presence in a civilization or culture. The early 20th century Euro centric anthropologist Giuseppe Sergi coined the term “Mediterraneanoid” and classified Nubians, Ancient Egyptians and Ethiopians as such. As for the Shang what we actually have here is the evidence of Melanesians and Polynesians building a high civilization. As an African American who has knowledge of self I know how it feels to have another people claim your creation of a civilization, your  accomplishments and or simply deny your contributions to history. This being the case I feel it is just as wrong for Afro centrics to claim the Shang as Black African as it is for Euro centrics to claim the Shang to be some obscure “proto-mongoloid” peoples. The Shang were a Melanoid(Melanesian)and Polynesian peoples. Below I explain my theory on how much of this transpired in the ancient region of the Yellow River valley

 As man left out of Africa he developed new haplo groups but kept a similar phenotype(dark skin, lower jaw prothagnism, full lips, wide nose).

Man changed slightly and you can look at Australian Aborigines and Africans and see that slight difference. If humans originally had straight or slightly curled hair like Aborigines and developed woolly hair later in Africa or if Aborigines developed straight and slightly curly hair later is not known. When humans first reached Asia they undoubtedly looked similar to the Africoid but more than likely would be genetically classified as Australoid or Austronesian. Proof of an Australoid people in Asia has been verified by archaeological artifacts and modern Indian dna. The evidence of Australoid dna in South East Asia is visible in the darker complexions of Vietnamese,Thai,Taiwanese,Cambodian and other South East Asians Linguistics& DNA also points to Australoid dna in South East Asia and Austronesian dna in East Asia.
(Aboriginals 1st to settle East Asia)
The link below is to a study that speaks to this.( it also speaks to the various migrations that lead to the assimilation of the Australoid type by the later Mongoloid type migration)  http://www.genetics.org/content/130/1/139.full.pdf%20.

Id like to state that  research on my part does point to mongoloid peoples having occupied the Yellow river area before the Shang but their culture was more primitive and Shang possessed Chariot technology which more than likely enabled them to conquer the inhabitants they encountered.
It also does appear  from the artifacts the Shang did have epicanthic folds or (Asian eyes). The noses and lips do seem Africoid or say Australoid.
The Han type Asian is a product of Ice Age climatic changes. Asians simply did not spend as long in Ice Age conditions as Caucasoids so they didn’t develop long noses to warm up air but they did develop smaller noses with smaller nostrils and they have lower jaw  regression (negative prothagnism )but not as much as Caucasians. Another ice age hominid Neanderthal has extreme lower jaw  regression (negative prothagnism ) to the extent many regard Neanderthal skulls as “chinless’ –

In the image below are Neanderthal skulls (top) compared to modern Caucasian skulls (bottom)


 It is theorized that along with the dark ice age conditions skin grew pale due to the invention of farming. By eating farmed crops as a basis for diet humans took vitamin D out of their diet. Cereal crops have no vitamin D. Meat has some and Fish has a lot and these two were the primary sources of food for hunter gatherers. Once humans began farming in Northern climates this eliminated the Vitamin D from their diet and humans needed to process more via sunlight. Han type Chinese are almost as pale as Europeans. Again both are products of ice age climate change and adapting to living far North of the Equator were sunlight is minimized.The Han type haplo group is primarily the ydna haplo group O. This haplo group developed in Central Eurasia and migrated into Northern Asia developing along Siberia and  outwards into East Asia.
 The National Geographic project’s “My genetic Journey “quotes:
“By the time haplogroup O ancestors arrived in China and East Asia, the last ice age was near its peak. Encroaching ice sheets and central Asia’s enormous mountain ranges effectively corralled them in East Asia, and there they evolved in isolation over the millennia”  http://www.viethoc.org/temp/
This may be a reason Asians almost ubiquitously have epicanthic eye folds among other traits that are rare in other human populations.

Haplo group O is descendant from a population that reached Asia about 35k years ago. There was already a population there that reached east Asia via a different route about 50k years ago. This is 47k years before the Shang  and this population seems to have been absorbed by the population that came 15k years later. The Shang civilizations artifacts and structures appear to be laid smack on top of earlier, mongoloid peoples settlements as if they came as conquers. The Shang population more than likely had not changed in phenotype because this group although in Asia during the ice age occupied an area free of glaciation(presumably on or near the east Asian coast) and still obtained large enough quantities of vitamin D for proper human body function so they had no need to develop lighter skin. Vitamin D keeps bones strong and helps women regulate folic acid crucial in child birth. Women could die with out the proper amount of vitamin D giving birth and children can be still born. This is one theory as to why humans developed lighter skin during the dark ice age conditions
Han p18743mongolian_girl
The Australoids in China just as the ones in India to the south developed early civilization or say proto-civilization before contact with the Han type. I say this because during this period the Han would have been living a Nomadic life style migrating throughout Asia before finally settling in the Yellow river area. Seeing that Australoids were the creators of the Indus Valley civilization(their text even speak of yogic positions and possibly are the roots to modern Hinduism) It is safe to assume they did the same in the Yellow river area. (were you have a water source, domestic animals and crops all rudiments of civilization.) Prehistoric Asia was the most hospitable environment for Neolithic man. Domestic animals and domestic grass/grains are indigenous to Eurasia/Middle East and spread to North Africa and other areas as humans migrated. Other Australoids live on Islands and continents with no domestic crops or animals, or the few native domestic crops they do farm are low in nutrition and require far more work to cultivate than wheat, barley, sorghum and other grass crops. With out a water source or domestic animals and crops civilization will not arise independently. This is why Island culture is tribal and even on continents like Australia the absence of domestic animals and crops halt the development of high civilization. Domestic crops allow a few farmers to feed a large population easily. This frees up people with in a population to become specialist such as architects, priest, scribes, astrologers and so on. With out domestication of animals and crops the majority of a population would have to spend the majority of time hunting and gathering. No time for some one to focus on developing a  script or alphabet or to plan out the construction of a temple or pyramid.
Thus the statement the original Chinese were Black or African  is only partially true. All mankind began in Africa and when man arrived in the area of China he was still dark skinned.  The Black Shang theory only speaks to the ruling dynasty that from archeology seem to be a conquering culture that came into the Yellow river valley area from near by. So as stated the Australoids and or Austronesian type was in East Asia at least 15k years before the group that would become the Han type Chinese arrived. One also must understand the Shang dynasty did not arise until 1675 BCE. This is more than 8000 years after the ice age ended and over 40k years after the 1st humans reached Asia. I plan to dig further on this theory but as it stands now the most concise non Euro, Afro or Chinese centric source ive found is from Plos Genetics Skeletal and dna studies that state there were two Shang dynasties, one Melanoid(as in Melanesian) and one of seemingly Polynesian stock. From what I gather this is the only source that sites actual study of Shang skeletal remains & not the Jaihu who occupied the area before them. http://www.plosgenetics.org/annotation/listThread.action;jsessionid=2D0CE411277C5035176581703A91AFF2?root=7003

The 1st Cipher (an Introduction)

The 1st Cipher (an Introduction)

Some may know me from Yahoo Answers. Some may know me from my You tube commentary. Many know me as Hip-Hop Rapper and Bay Area pioneer Hugh EMC. I’ve created this blog to address issues of anthropology, history, civilizations origins and the origins of mankind it self. On Yahoo Answers I’ve received email from question askers about certain topics dealing with the roots of civilization ,genetics & history. This is what prompted me in part to create this blog. I consider my self neither Afro nor Euro centric. I consider my self world centric and a scientific thinker. I do my best to look at matters of history & culture through an anthropological lens. I seek truthful non biased answers to questions of race and civilization. I do my best to support my claims with empirical evidence and in the case of an over abundance of circumstantial data i will state the particular claim is a strong theory. Euro centric thinkers will undoubtedly find me Afro centric. This is due to the fact many new discoveries have come forth revealing not only mankind’s roots in Africa but the very roots of language, culture and civilization it self. Euro centrics have had a long history of masking and denying Africa’s role in world culture and civilization and this mind state will prove hard to break in some. Many Afro centrics will consider me brainwashed by Euro centric schools of study but this is untrue. Much of Afro centric claims are over reactions to extreme Euro centric racism so instead of stating something is a probable theory Afro centrics state claims as if they have all of the supporting evidence and this is an error. The way many Afro centrics state their claims only hurt African history over all. I’ve listened to and or read research from so many brilliant Afro centric academics only to find error after error. The errors are usually small but they hurt the over all validity of the theory put forth. In the coming months I will be re posting many of my YA Answers and commentary from other sites but I also will be posting new commentary and linking this blog with my new You tube site that also will be dealing with historical and anthropological issues. I look forward to dialogue with you all.
