The depiction of Moors in European literature: Part One

THE Moors were honoured in Europe for hundreds of years and images associated with them are still found in many parts of Europe, on flags and other symbols.
The images are of black people with kinky hair.
The images can be found on the royal crests of England, Germany, and Denmark. This is evidence of recognition by Europeans of significant African influence in those lands.
The image of a black man was a positive one throughout the reign of the Moors. When they were conquered by the whites, the image of the black man was then turned upside down.
The whites worked very hard to imitate the Moors and yet portray them as savages to their descendants.
The ‘gentlemen’ culture of Europe is a Moorish characteristic which was stripped from the blacks and attributed to the whites who used to be known as Barbarians.
The likes of William Shakespeare were descendants of the black Moors. Shakespeare writes about them in the popular play of Othello.
Othello was the main character who was a black Moor and he was a man of royalty in Europe.
In modern times, the whites show movies which hint that there is a missing part of black history in Europe.
For example, there is a high budget 3D animation film called Shrek.
This film is a good example of how people are made to believe that blacks are savages.
It features highly paid actors like Mike Myers, Cameroon Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderos.
The film is about a green giant living in Europe in the middle ages (medieval times).
This green giant is a loner in the woods of Europe and lives in a swamp where he survives on all sorts of creatures such as rats, slugs, snails etc.
He is known as Shrek the Ogre and the name ogre is clearly derived from Moor and nigger.
Shrek has lost his link with the rest of the ogres and for a long time he believed he was the only ogre left in Europe because the rest of them had been killed off by white people.
On one occasion, the donkey (Eddie Murphy) asked Shrek (Mike Myers) why he lived in hiding and disliked the man (white man); he replied “It is not I who hates them, but it is them who hate me.
“Ogres are like onions because we have many layers (whites do not).”
The white man was clearly depicting the post-Moorish period of Europe which was characterised by the killing off and expulsion of all Moors from Europe.
This began in 1492 when the Moors were defeated in Spain and Portugal and this was caused by their internal disputes that divided and consequently weakened them.
Shrek speaks of having many layers like an onion, and by this he meant that he possessed melanised (black) skin.
The white man is merely a black man stripped of his layers of black skin.
The difference between the two is very significant and is the source of white people’s hatred and envy towards the blacks.
In the case of Shrek, the creators of the film made him green so as to hide the story of the Moors from the viewers and yet mock the blacks for failing to solve the riddle that the movie imposes.
The strategic casting of Eddie Murphy, who is a famous African American comedian as the donkey confirms this attempt by the filmmakers to make the black viewers seem ignorant to the enlightened whites who know about our Moorish legacy.
On one occasion, donkey is referred to as ‘a dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden’ when he fails to understand what Shrek meant when he said ogres are made up of many layers like onions.
Eddie Murphy is representing blacks as we have lost knowledge of our transcendent history.
A large number of the African Americans of today are direct descendants of the Moors that were eventually sent to America as slaves.
The chlorophyll (green) which is found in plants is related to the melanin (black) which is found in humans and animals because they are both made up of carbon which causes the dark pigment.
Many scientists thus jokingly say, if God did not make us black, He would have made us green.
This is because chlorophyll and melanin have similar attributes of protection, absorption of energy and so on.
This is the reason why the whites made Shrek green and still spoke of him having layers.
Shrek is hunted down by the whites and is constantly attacked by villagers with their tools as weapons.
However, the whites portray him as one physically superior to them and by these abilities, Shrek remains unconquered. Shrek is shown with knowledge of astronomy and he regularly reads the stars.
His ears are shaped like trumpets and he would later find out that ogres could sound their ears like trumpets in the fifth part of Shrek.
The trumpet was often used by the Israelites (black) who made up a large portion of the Moorish population.
Shrek had not known that there were other ogres who had resorted to living underground so as to escape the white oppressors.
There was an ogre rebellion with hundreds of ogres hidden underground.
While Shrek is fictitious, it is based on the true history of the blacks of Europe and anyone who looks at the available history of the Moors (particularly post-Moorish period) can decipher its true meaning.
While there was no such thing as a green giant living in Europe in the Middle Ages, there is the true history of black Muslims (Moors) living in Europe during that period.
This connection alone shows that the whites know of our history and they do not only hide it from us, but they also mock us for our ignorance.
Now the hunter has been caught by his own snare because that same film which was meant to mock us will now be a source of evidence and enlightenment on what took place in those times.
