Germany
Germany was by no means an exception in terms of an ancient Black presence. There have been settlements of African people in that region from as far back as the Old Stone Age.
Black legions invaded Germany with Julius Caesar, and MacRitchie stated that certain Danish tribes in northwestern Germany were “like the Moors, black.”
In the 1940s, Joel Augustus Rogers found the coats-of-arms of many prominent German families bearing the head or body of a Moor, indicating a Black progenitor.
Anyone traveling in Coburg, Germany, will encounter the Coburg Moor, who is on the city arms and is the patron saint of the city. Believed to be the image of Saint Mauritius from Egypt, the oldest impression of the city seal dates back to the year 1521.


I hate this kind of Pseudo-archaeo / anthro because it stops people from marveling at the actual history of POC in Europe.
Emperor Otto adopted Mauritius as a saint when he became emperor after receiving (supposedly) Mauritius’s remains as a gift from his father in law.He elevated Mauritius to the status of patron saint for himself and for the entire empire.It’s for this reason that the presence of the Coburg moor presents a geographical or political allegiance rather than an actual POC presence in Coburg (unless you count the possible postmortem presence of Mauritius)POC were there in Germany, but this isn’t evidence of that.
The presence of other moor’s heads in medieval heraldry is more muddled, and sadly, often a product of war. They symbolized “trophies” of victories on crusade, or captives. Many heraldic devices used to depict moors heads with blindfolds, but were changed in later centuries to headbands in mockery of crowns, something often overlooked even by modern historians.
There are examples of moors heads in heraldry that aren’t like this, however. Frederick II of Sicily used a moors head to establish himself as a worldly ruler. He established Muslim communities near his holdings and employed people from their communities in his private staff. Had he won against the popes, white culture might be very different today.Most German houses that hold moor’s head devices link back to allegiance or name dropping to this dynasty.
It should also be noted that it’s commonly accepted that the portrayal of Mauritius as a Moor was a mistake by an artist who “didn’t know the difference between Moors and Egyptians.”I think there’s room for debate there, as Egyptians have always been as varied in skin tone as they are today.
While David MacRitchie is an interesting person in history, his works should never be cited in a serious discussion about it. MacRitchie was an early 20th century folklorist who perpetuated (often racist) misinformation about a metric-fuckton of real and not real cultures. (Including his history of “Gypsies” which claimed they all came from England.)

Georgia Guidestones

The frightening and enigmatic Georgia Guidestones were recently updated with a stone tag that reads, “2014”.

This strange monument sounds like the creation of an evil bad guy in a science fiction movie who wants to take over the world. However, these stones are very real and their most frightening declaration is, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 (five-hundred-million) in perpetual balance with nature.” There are currently 7,000,000,000 (seven-billion) people living on the planet. So, it seems whoever created these stones, which are written in eight languages, wants to murder a large majority of the planet.

Story link: http://guardianlv.com/2014/09/georgia-guidestones-recently-obtain-new-addition-the-year-2014/

Wiki link: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones

make this viral

creeepppyyyy

Except, nobody says anything about murder? Maybe just let people die naturally without having so many sweet little burdens in the future?

It’s not creepy. It’s science. The earth can sustain 10 billion people without incurring damage (if all of us become vegetarian and use all available land to produce food.)

We will reach that number (without such land management) in approximately 2050. That’s 36 years to solve all of the world’s hunger problems before we reach an event horizon that will start to damage the earths ability to sustain life itself.

Half that number, 500 million would be easily sustainable at current trends in consumption and waste management, extending the “buffer zone” to repair the damage done and solve resource problems after that event horizon by about 1000 years, rather than… None… without intervention.
1000 years with a stable, sustainable population to come up with a solution to sustain a population as big as ours is currently.

Just because the earth CAN sustain 10 billion people, doesn’t mean it needs to get that bad before we do something about it.

The earth is more important than us.
Save the planet, use condoms.
