This article is written partly in reply to an article that was sent us:
EPHRAIM & MANASSEH ARE NOT THE U.S. & BRITAIN!
by Edward Jones
In this missive the author claims in effect that the early Hebrews were probably colored and that Asenath the wife of
Joseph was black therefore so were her children, Ephraim and Manasseh.
The author appartently belongs to a movement that claims that all true Israelites were black. This is a well-known doctrine amongst Afro-Americans. Jeremiah Wright the one-time pastor of Baruk Husein Obama
advocates such a teaching..
Wright served as both a role model and a spiritual mentor for Obama, and the
senator would check with Wright prior to making any bold political moves. According to the Reverend Jim Wallis,
who is a leader of the religious left, "If you want to understand where Barack gets his feeling and rhetoric from,
just look at Jeremiah Wright."
Wright served as the family pastor of Obama for about fifteen years and Barak Hussein named a book he wrote after the title of a sermon delivered by Wright.
Wright considers the USA an evil entity. He also says that the Christian Messiah was a black man and that is why he was crucufied.
These are not incidental offhand opinions that Wright casually threw out but central themes in his teaching.
Obama could not have failed to take notice of them.
This doctrine even has a name for itself.
It is called,
Black Liberation Theology!
In addition to Wright most of the early role models of Obama were anti-American racial radicals.
Obama came to power thanks in part to Arab money that even before his PreSIdential candidature had been reaching him from
All this would not concern us overduly since our primary concern involves the Lost Ten Tribes.
We identify the Ten Lost Tribes with certain Western Peoples.
Black Liberation Theology advocates however claim that the Ancient Israelites were themselves black.
They send us letters and articles attempting to prove that Western Peoples cannot be descendants of Israel since
they are on the whole members of the White Race
and therefore in the eyes of Black Liberation Theologians disqualified!
Some of the authors of these claims appear to be quite intelligent.
This subject does concern us since it involves the Ten Tribes and their present-day identity and that is what the Brit-Am Ten Tribes Movement is all about!
What is Brit-Am, the
Movement of the Lost Ten Tribes?
Our own organization, Brit-Am, the Movement of the Lost Ten Tribes is not a
religion nor a political movement.
Our primary task is to identify who the Lost Tribes are (Research), bring this
knowledge to the Recognition of the public, and work towards the
Reconciliation of Joseph with Judah.
These are our three Rs: Research, Recognition, Reconciliation.
The article below concerns matters of race and racial prejudice. These matters
should concern us only in a peripheral fashion but the subject has been raised
and we have tried to answer it. We are trying not to be judgmental but rather to
suggest insights of our own that may be helpful or at least of interest.
Noah, Ham and Canaan
The first man was Adam. From Adam descended Noah from whom all
present-day human beings derive.
The three sons of Noah were Sem (Shem), Ham, and Japhet.
[Genesis 9:18] AND THE SONS OF NOAH, THAT WENT FORTH OF THE ARK, WERE SHEM, AND
HAM, AND JAPHETH: AND HAM IS THE FATHER OF CANAAN.
The descendants of Ham traditionally populated Africa, as well as giving rise to
other peoples such as the Canaanites who lived in the Holy Land before the
Israelites conquered it from them.
Noah got drunk and was mocked at by Ham whereas his two other sons treated him
with respect and covered his nakedness. Consequently Noah cursed Canaan the son
[Genesis 9:24] AND NOAH AWOKE FROM HIS WINE, AND KNEW WHAT HIS YOUNGER SON HAD
DONE UNTO HIM.
[Genesis 9:25] AND HE SAID, CURSED BE CANAAN; A SERVANT OF SERVANTS SHALL HE BE
UNTO HIS BRETHREN.
[Genesis 9:26] AND HE SAID, BLESSED BE THE LORD GOD OF SHEM; AND CANAAN SHALL BE
[Genesis 9:27] GOD SHALL ENLARGE JAPHETH, AND HE SHALL DWELL IN THE TENTS OF
SHEM; AND CANAAN SHALL BE HIS SERVANT.
Ham gave rise to dark and white peoples.
See the picture below of blond albinoids born to black Negro Africans.
DNA and the Black Race
Black Liberation Theology followers on occasion quote from DNA findings when these fit their argument.
On the other hand the Brit-Am Ten Tribes Movement DOES NOT accept all the findings of modern DNA research. We have
articles and numerous notes and news items on this matter. Nevertheless DNA does
tell us something to some degree. Most people accept DNA findings. We may
therefore be excused if we quote basic DNA findings that agree with our own
understanding of reality even though we otherwise would treat them with
For those who accept the findings of modern science DNA tells us that the DNA
Y chromosome (transmitted by males only) E is that of most Negroid Africans.
Most African Americans are E3a.
[The Exceptions include the 20% or more who had white forefathers.]
A related branch of E, E3b, encompasses
North African Whites (most Berbers and some Arabs), Southeast Europeans, and 20% of Ashkenazic (European)
According to these findings, the Berbers of North Africa as well as many peoples in the Balkans and amongst
the European Jews are technically of the same origin as Africans. This is
according to DNA findings that in our opinion may be mistaken but for the
present at least are universally accepted as scientific fact.
[It is interesting to note that the
of North African Berbers is the same as that of most
Apart from that, even though the YDNA of most Africans is E other haplogroups
An offshoot of R1b usually associated with Western Europe has also been found in
back migration from Asia to Africa took place around 15,000 years ago, with a
group of R1b1* people moving to Egypt, Sudan and spreading in different
directions inside Africa to Rwanda, South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Congo, Gabon,
Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau. The hotspot is
Cameroon. R1b1* was observed at a frequency of up to 95% in some tribes of
northern Cameroon (like the Kirdi), and about 15% nationwide.
In other words the overlap of color with race exists but it is not absolute.
Color may be induced not only by heredity but also by environment.
There are peoples in Asia (Negritos, different tribes in India, etc) and
Melanesia (Papua-New Guinea etc) as well as most Australian Aborigines who are
very dark but on the whole are not considered close relatives of black Africans
but rather of other Asians etc.
In general the long-term conclusion must be that the closer a people is to the Equator the darker their skin will be no matter what their origins.
Amongst the Africans there are peoples who are dark and others somewhat lighter. In some cases the relative lightness of skin is due to natural causes, i.e. they
apparently fit the environmental requirements. In other cases light skin amongst Africans may be due to admixture with other groups.
The Ethiopians are an African people but some of them are quite light. This
relative lightness of color may be attributed to the intrusion of lighter-skinned settlers.
On the other hand the Bushmen (San people also known as Khoisan) of South Africa have not intermixed with other peoples,
at least not with peoples lighter than themselves.
They walk around almost naked yet on the whole have remained in many cases quite light skinned.
The Egyptian Wife of Joseph
Joseph married Asenath or in Modern Hebrew "Osnat".
[Genesis 41:45] AND PHARAOH CALLED JOSEPH'S NAME ZAPHNATH-PAANEAH [Revealer of Hidden Things]; AND HE GAVE
HIM TO WIFE ASENATH THE DAUGHTER OF POTIPHERAH PRIEST OF ON. AND JOSEPH WENT
OUT OVER ALL THE LAND OF EGYPT.
Some Jewish legends claim that Asenath was really Dinah daughter of Jacob or a
daughter of Schechem son of Hamor and Dinah.
Genesis chapter 34 tells us how Dinah daughter of Jacob was raped by Schechem and how her brothers took bloody vengeance.
We do not accept the equation of Asenath with Dinah.
As far as we are concerned Asenath was the daughter of an Egyptian as Scripture

(wife of Joseph) the Daughter of Dinah??
The Ancient Egyptians were Africans. Their physical type varied. Some could be
quite light-skinned, others very dark, most were probably of a darker
Mediterranean type as revealed by archeological findings.
Pictures of Ancient Egyptians
Some Ancient depictions of Egyptian
We do not know what Asenath looked like nor what color she was.
[I personally do not really care.]
Even if she was dark her descendants could still be quite light due to genetic
drift and environmental influence.
Here are pictures of two Egyptian Pharoahs.
Tutahkhamen may have had light brown
Ramses-2 apparently had white-pinkish skin.
Nubia in the Sudan is one of the regions known as Cush. This area once had a well-developed civilization and interacted with Egypt.
So too in India a comparatively high level of development was acheived by the native very dark-skinned population prior to the Aryan invasions.
There was a dynasty of Nubians from the Sudan that once ruled over Egypt.
Depictions of these Nubian Pharaohs show individuals with Negroid features and
dark complexions. This however was in the period ca. 716-666 BCE several centuries after the time of Joseph. A.H. Sayce ("The Races of the Old Testament,". London 1925) remarked that the Egyptian artists tended to emphasize racial differences to the point of caricature
and it would seem that the different coloration of these Nubians as compared to regular Egyptians has been stressed.
At other times family members of the ruling dynasties
upon occasion appear to have been relatively light skinned. There were periods
when the Egyptians placed guards at the frontier and forbade the entrance of
black Nubians. At other times we find Nubian regiments and police force serving
in Egyptian employ along with black slaves and servants in the royal palace.
Asenath could have been of almost any color though statistical
probability is that she was of a darker Mediterranean type.
Apart from that one should forget the stereotypes.
Scandinavians are on the whole quite light and so are most Dutch People and the
Irish but even these groups contain quite a few darker brunette types some of
whose ancestors may well have been much darker than they are.
Technically according to the old system of physical classification at least 50%
of the inhabitants of the British Isles were considered of Mediterranean type.
The other ca. 50% are mainly of the Nordic type which in turn is
considered a more robust lighter offshoot of the Mediterranean.

Were the Early Inhabitants of the Earth
Black or White?
The African blacks are not the only descendants of Ham.
I do not know how a white man can give birth to black babies or vice versa but
apparently it happened and it happens.
Changeovers occur whether gradually or all at once.
I personally assume that Adam the first man was white, so was Noah, and so was
Some descendants of Ham were also white and some were not.
I may however be wrong.
Maybe Adam, Noah, and Ham were all black people only some of their descendants
became albinoised and white or mongoloized and Sinian?
Researchers at present assume that early man came out of Africa and was presumably black.
He then changed his color.
At present it is assumed that the Mongoloid type was a later development.
Findings in areas such as China and North America where Mongoloid types later became predominant indicate that the earliest inhabitants
were more Europoid in their features.
Human Races Can Change. Background: The Kennewick Man
As for early man having been black or dark:
Such an eventuality would scientifically be considered more feasible.
Even today albinos or partial albinoids with white skin, blue eyes, red or blond
hair etc do sometimes spontaneously spring forth from black parents.
[see the photos above on this page].
Nevertheless no-one knows for sure.
Canaan was a descendant of Ham.
Some later Jewish traditions associate the Children of Canaan with black
Other Jewish traditions however also find Canaanites amongst the Germans and Slavic
The Egyptians depicted most Canaanites as of a darker Mediterranean type but
with some blonds and redheads amongst them.
It may be that many Canaanites migrated to West Africa as their own traditions
The West African coast was known as Ghana (Guinea) which is similar to the
Egyptian word (Ganan) for Canaan.
The term Khenya also derives from the name of a Canaanite god that may also be taken to represent Canaan.
Perhaps that is why they were made slaves?
The Arab word for black man is abd which means slave.
The Arabs still keep black slaves and most African-Americans appear not to
begrudge them this practice.
Obama Hussein is himself descended from an Arab slave-trader.
#5. Is Barack Hussein Obama ethnically Arabic?
Poem In Memory of the Slave-Trading Arab Forbears of Barak Hussein
African peoples themselves in some cases enslave each other.
On the other hand, slavery was once a universal practice. In Ancient Times everybody was wont to enslave everybody else.
Until quite recently many white Europeans
were captured and enslaved in North Africa and throughout the Ottoman Empire of Turkey.
At one stage Irish, Scottish, and English Royalist rebels were enslaved by the British Government and
transported to the Caribbean.
The Early Germans had the practice of enslaving Slavic peoples and one explanation
says that the racial term "Slav" derives from the Germanic for Slave.
International Slavery (especially of black people), to the extent that it was stopped, owes its cessation to the efforts of
the British with support from the USA and related nations such as the Danes.
Racial Prejudice and
Racial prejudice is a natural phenomenon. It even exists amongst animals.
I myself am white.
If I ever get re-married I would prefer a white woman similar to myself but if
it turned out that Divine Providence intended something else that too I would
hope to be a blessing.
What I myself might be prepared to do however is not something that should necessarily be
done by others.
Moses married a colored woman.
The Black Woman. Color Prejudice
Condemned by the Torah
Is Miscegenation (Racial Mixing) Forbidden?
Experience shows us that colored people can be just as prejudiced as white
people. In Japan and India they have caste systems with darker people on the lower rung and no way of rising above it.
Miscegenation may not necessarily be a good thing in every case
or even in general.
Physical differences exist for a reason though today so much intermixing has already taken place
that it may not matter so much.
Mongoloid women who are impregnated by white men after the first child frequently suffer from gynaecological problems.
On the other hand historically close-knit groups (Jewish Communities, South African Boers, French Canadians, etc) often suffer from
Genetic diseases the incidence of which could be alleviated by more marrying-out.
The Bible says nothing against mixed marriages other than that Israelites should
The Bible gives social justification for its preference and not a racial
[Deuteronomy 7:3] NEITHER
THOU MAKE MARRIAGES WITH THEM; THY
DAUGHTER THOU SHALT
NOT GIVE UNTO HIS SON, NOR HIS DAUGHTER
THOU TAKE UNTO THY SON.
[Deuteronomy 7:4] FOR THEY WILL TURN AWAY THY SON FROM FOLLOWING ME,
THAT THEY MAY SERVE OTHER GODS: SO WILL THE ANGER OF THE LORD BE KINDLED AGAINST YOU, AND DESTROY THEE SUDDENLY.
Inter-marriage with other peoples was forbidden because of the danger that the
non-Israelite would lead the Hebrew partner into idolatry.
When this danger no longer existed there was no reason for prohibition. In
Judaism anyone can convert as long as they meet the standards required.
In the USA there are quite a few converts to Judaism of Afro-American origin. On
the other hand a recent article showed that in many cases the children of these
converts encounter mild forms of prejudice from their fellow Jews. This is
especially a problem with young people. For this and perhaps other reasons the percentage of children
to converts who remain Jewish amongst colored people is only half that of
converts of white origin.
So too, amongst the Gentile population in the USA the children of mixed Afro-American and white unions usually identify with the black parent.
Barak Obama whose mother is white of Irish-Scottish and English descent is a case in point.
People are human.
The world is imperfect.
We usually have to plan our lives according to the reality we are faced with and
not with how we would like it to be.
I had a few fiends who were of dark African origin. They helped me on several occasions.
A friend in need is a friend indeed.
They helped me quite selflessly when I needed help and I was not about to refuse
their help because of any prejudicial instincts I may have had. I hope that if
the situation had have been different that I would have been man enough to help
them as they helped me.
The same with everything.
[Proverbs 27:10] Better is a neighbor
nearby than a brother far away.
On the other hand I have family and acquaintances whose experiences with black
people have not been good ones and according to reports such is the rule rather
than the exception.
In the USA black crime is a major problem and black crime against whites has taken on aspects of racial resentment.
Most black Americans prefer their own kind to white people.
Some of them hate all white people.
This is not an issue that we are personally involved in.
In our opinion many Afro-Americans are of Israelite Descent though MOST are not.
Even those who are not should submit themselves to the will of the Almighty,
recognize that North American is the domain of Joseph
and through the Bible draw closer to the God of Israel.
is it Like to Teach Black Students?|

#Whites were "racis",
of course, but they thought of us at least as Americans. Not the Mexicans.
Blacks have a certain, not necessarily hostile understanding of white people.
They know how whites act, and it is clear they believe whites are smart and are
good at organizing things. At the same time, they probably suspect whites are
just putting on an act when they talk about equality, as if it is all a sham
that makes it easier for whites to control blacks. Blacks want a bigger piece of
the American pie. I'm convinced that if it were up to them they would give
whites a considerably smaller piece than whites get now, but they would give us
something. They wouldn't give Mexicans anything.#
day I asked the bored, black faces staring back at me.
"What would happen if all
the white people in America disappeared tomorrow?"
"We screwed," a young, pitch-black boy screamed back.
The rest of the blacks laughed.
The Black Afro-Americans in
It was prophesied [Isaiah 45:14] that slaves from Africa would be taken to the
USA where the Lost Ten Tribes were to be found in the Latter Days..
That is one of our proofs that the Lost Ten Tribes today are to be found in
North America as well as regions from which most of its early settlers
Isaiah (45:14) says:
That which comes to Egypt [via the Suez Canal], the trade of India [Cush], and
of the Sabeans [of negro Africa], shall come over [the sea] unto you. They will
be yours, in chains they will come unto you.
This was fulfilled by the British and Americans.
In the future these descendants of slaves will acknowledge the God of Israel and
the People of Israel.
14 Thus says the LORD:
The labor of Egypt and merchandise of
And of the Sabeans,
men of stature,

And there is no other;
There is no other God.

O God of Israel, the Savior!
President Obama may well be a Kenyan of Canaanite origin and
forbidden according to the US Constitution to fulfill the role he does.

Obama was raised in a radical leftwing environment and his mentors appear to
have been anti-American pro-terrorist leftist types.
Barak Hussein is also against Zionism and the State of Israel and possibly against the USA
If Obama goes no-one can be sure that whoever comes after him will be better. Nevertheless,
chances are that an improvement will be available.
At all events we should all do what we can as well as we can in the light of the Bible.
Color overlaps with Racial Distinctions but does not determine them. Theoretically it is posssible for people of the same color to belong to different races.
Not all black people are necessarily descended from Ham though most may be.
A person is born in the situation they would have chosen to be born in; knowing the options that were open to them.
We are what we are because our souls agreed to us being that way.
We each have a task in life and us being who we are most suits us towards fulfiling that task.
The Tribes of Israel on the whole, as far as we can tell, belonged to the White Race. This does not mean that that we may
automatically conclude that someone who is colored does not descend from Israel.
We simply do not know. The bottom line is determined by how one acts and feels. The Lost Ten Tribes according to our findings
are today to be found concentrated amongst certain Western Nations. We are therefore justified in concentrating our efforts
amongst the peoples in question. It may be that descendants of Judah and/or Israel are also to be found elsewhere and
if so they too will return with the others.
Our conclusions are valid on the general level. An individual who feels part of Israel but does not pertain to any of the
groups Brit-Am concentrates upon should attach themselves to one of the Israelite Peoples or to Judah.
May the Almighty show all of us the way to carry out HIS will.
According to the Talmud (Rosh HaShana 13;a, Hulin 60;a) based on a meaning found in the Hebrew Bible we are as we agreed to become. Each one of us came into this world after agreeing to do so. To some degree we (i.e. our “souls’) each were given the wherewithal to cope with our own situation and make the best of it. [The fact that we often fail to do as well as we should, or could, is another matter!].
A person is born in the situation they would have chosen to be born in, knowing the options that were open to them. We are what we are because our souls agreed to us being that way. We each have a task in life and us being who we are most suits us towards fulfilling that task.
Rosh Hashana 13;a: # Said Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi, Everything that was created, was made according to its own level; according to its own awareness was it created; in accordance to how it would have wanted to become was it made....
Rashi: "according to its own awareness." They were asked if they wished to be created and they answered, Yes.
Rashi: # ".... in accordance to how they would have wanted to become." According to the reasoning of each and every one and in the individual imprinted formation of each one. #
Rashi (Chulin 60;a): According to the form they chose for themselves.
