In 1492 the reason Columbus came looking for the new world was not for gold, fame and fortune as history has told us, but his crew were mostly Sephardic Jews seeking a place to find freedom from the “Inquisitions”.
Most call these murder by torture and burning at the stake the Spanish Inquisitions but in fact the Roman Catholic Church had been conducting a purge of Jews since 325 AD under Constantine. Estimated totals of murdered as documented in “Fox’s Book of Martyrs” totals about one half billion over 1700 years. When war came with Mohammed and islamic forces in the 800s to 1200s AD, the practice of stealing white women for the slave market as sex slaves was well documented. The Ashanti Tribe in Africa became rich making trades of Black slaves from Ethiopia mostly Jews and also taking trade of white girls from the Muslim crusades in Europe.
The Treaty of Granada was signed and ratified on November 25, 1491, between Boabdil, the sultan of Granada, and Ferdinand and Isabella, the King and Queen of Castile, León, Aragon and Sicily. It ended the Granada War which had started in 1482, culminating in the siege and battle of Granada beginning in spring 1491.
Also known as the Capitulation of Granada, the treaty provided a short truce, followed by the relinquishment in January 1492 of the sovereignty of the Moorish Emirate of Granada (founded five centuries earlier) to the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. The treaty guaranteed a set of rights to the Moors, including religious tolerance and fair treatment in return for their surrender and capitulation. the Muslim forces agreed and signed in Fatima Spain additional agreements with the Pope to end hostilities between Islam and Roman Catholics in Europe. As the inquistions raged in Europe killing protestants and Jews for such crimes as reading the bible, the end of a over 700 Years war was marked from when King Faulk Toook Jerusalem from the Mohammedanisms Arabs and established a Kingdom there that lasted for about 300 years.
The Black Hand Candy: Between 1885 and 1905, 10 million Congolese were murdered at the hands of the Belgian monarch who never set foot in the Congo.
Arab slave trade is the intersection of slavery and trade surrounding the Arab world and Indian Ocean, mainly in Western and Central Asia, Northern and Eastern Africa, India, and Europe that included whites, Ethiopians, Algerians and both Christians and Jews. Slavery in the Muslim world first developed out of the slavery practices of pre-Islamic Arabia, and was at times radically different, depending on social-political factors such as the Arab slave trade. Throughout Islamic history, slaves served in various social and economic roles, from powerful emirs to harshly treated manual laborers. Early on in Muslim history they were used in plantation labor similar to that in the Americas, but this was abandoned after harsh treatment led to destructive slave revolts, the most notable being the Zanj Rebellion of 869–883. Arab Islamic Sex slave trade and even organ harvesting has been reported in Libya and other middle eastern Muslim countries. Slavery is still going on even today.
Hebrew Slavery in Egypt came long before the modern era of slaves as recorded in the Bible in Exodus.
Throughout the ages there have been many holocausts.
The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah,[b] was the World War II genocide of the European Jews. Between 1941 and 1945, across German-occupied Europe, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population.[a][c] The murders were carried out in pogroms and mass shootings; by a policy of extermination through work in concentration camps; and in gas chambers and gas vans in German extermination camps, chiefly Auschwitz, Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór, and Treblinka in occupied Poland. In North Africa in the beginnig of World War II, Nazi Socialists troops allied with Italy and Muslims, practiced slavery of Ethiopians and blacks as well as Jews.
Even before in World War One, the onset of conflicts in Eastern Europe caused the murder of Gypsy, Armenians, Protestants, Greeks and Jews. The Armenian Genocide[a] (also known as the Armenian Holocaust) was the systematic mass murder and expulsion of 1.5 million[note 2] ethnic Armenians carried out in Turkey and adjoining regions by the Ottoman government between 1914 and 1923. The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day that Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported from Constantinople (now Istanbul) to the region of Angora (Ankara), 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, the majority of whom were eventually murdered.
The Holodomor (Ukrainian: Голодомо́р; Голодомо́р в Украї́ні;[a] derived from морити голодом, “to kill by starvation”) was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine, and sometimes referred to as the Great Famine or the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33. It was part of the wider Soviet famine of 1932–33, which affected the major grain-producing areas of the country. During the Holodomor, millions of inhabitants of Ukraine, the majority of whom were ethnic Ukrainians, died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine. Since 2006, the Holodomor has been recognized by Ukraine and 15 other countries as a genocide of the Ukrainian people carried out by the Soviet government. Early estimates of the death toll by scholars and government officials varied greatly. According to higher estimates, up to 12 million ethnic Ukrainians were said to have perished as a result of the famine. During this famine and police action by the Russian Communists, my wife’s great Uncle was frozen to death on a park bench at a bus stop while her great grandmother waited for a bus that never came after soviet soldiers threw her out of her home. She could only save one child in the below freezing temperatures. Though she tried to save both, only my wife’s mother survived. In Ukraine each year music about the Holodomor is played on Radio and TV and memorials are commemorated with photographs and names of those who died in this Holocaust caused by Russia.
The Cultural Revolution, formally the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, was a sociopolitical movement in China from 1966 until 1976. Launched by Mao Zedong, the Chairman of the Communist Party of China (CPC), its stated goal was to preserve Chinese Communism by purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society, and to re-impose Mao Zedong Thought (known outside China as Maoism) as the dominant ideology in the CPC. The Revolution marked Mao’s return to the central position of power in China after a period of less radical leadership to recover from the failures of the Great Leap Forward, which led to approximately 30 million deaths in the Great Chinese Famine only five years earlier. What the online encyclopedias and leftist press won’t tell you is what we who lived through this time know and heard from our soldiers who returned from the Korean War were told be escaping Chinese deserters from the North that continued from 1948 to even today. Mao had put in prison millions from the Revolution after WW2. When that gulag purge had been completed, the starvation came. After that the Cultural Purge and then the Tibetan murders and purge that lead to the Dolly Lama coming to live in the United States. All totaled, over one half billion were killed by this communist regime.
Antisemitism in the Russian Empire included numerous pogroms and the designation of the Pale of Settlement (territory of contemporary Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Poland), from which Jews were forbidden to migrate into the interior of Russia, unless they converted to the Russian Orthodox state religion.
Russia remained unaffected by the liberalizing tendencies of this era with respect to the status of Jews. Before the 18th century Russia maintained an exclusionary policy towards Jews, in accordance with the anti-Jewish precepts of the Russian Orthodox Church. When asked about admitting Jews into the Empire, Peter the Great stated “I prefer to see in our midst nations professing Mohammedanism and paganism rather than Jews. They are rogues and cheats. It is my endeavor to eradicate evil, not to multiply it.” The Russian Pales also involved murders and many violent actions taken by communist soldiers. By the end of the 1st World War, Marxists in Russia began purges to remove certain ethnic groups from eastern European nations that fell under their dictatorship through World War Two. The total deaths and murders were conservative estimated at about 325,000,000 (325 Million) which included a Stalin purge known as the “Paranoia” when Stalin had anyone who tested in IQ above his own killed. Stalin believed that anyone who was smarter than he was, might be a risk to his murder by coup.
In Cuba after the Communist Socialist Revolution there, Chi Rivera murdered about 300,000 for Castro.
In Cambodia in the 1970s the The Khmer Rouge (/kəˌmɛər ˈruːʒ/, French: [kmɛʁ ʁuʒ]; Khmer: ខ្មែរក្រហម, romanized: Khmae Krɑ-hɑɑm [kʰmae krɑˈhɑːm]; “Red Khmers“) is the name which was popularly given to members of the Communist Party of Kampuchea (CPK) and by extension to the regime through which the CPK ruled Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. The name had been coined in the 1960s by Norodom Sihanouk to describe his country’s then heterogeneous, communist-led dissidents, with whom he allied after his 1970 overthrow. About 5,000,000 were systematically murder in the events documented in the famous film the “Killing Fields”.
there were and are many injustices going on in this world and not only do all lives matter, history matters. We must not erase the history both good and bad, both memorials and books and rewrite history purged from the knowledge of what happened to our ancestors before us. We at Merrick Foundation have embraced our black family, brown family and all skin colors as not a race different from our white cousins, but as the one race we all share, the Human Race.
We welcome all our black cousins in the family to join us here and remember the good and the bad and the ugly of our shared past. Many of our members have shared online stories about Mary Myrick who wrote in the Federalist Papers, Sue Myrick who worked with “Gone with the wind” Movie crews and actors, and relatives who saw the history of the underground railroad unfold during the time when slavery in the south United States was legal but not ethical. Black Merrick family members matter to us and if you take the time to do the research, including DNA, you will find that this family line has a great deal of Merari Hebrew and Black DNA from Africa and the world of nations, tribes and peoples. We hope you will join with us to preserve history because history matters. How can we learn from the mistakes of the past if we forget and erase that memory of our journey to freedom ?
In light of the recent events and our call for embracing all our cousins, the Meyrick Merrick Foundation Org has revived some family texts that show our varied past and many roots in cultures and genetic mutations. George Byron Merrick wrote a book in the era of the Civil War living as a river boat pilot and working in the family business on the upper Mississippi.
John Merrick became a prominent businessman in the era right after the Civil War and came to be respected in his ability to make his success a matter of civic pride for his community. Our efforts to revive and publish Merrick and Meyrick lines books, genealogies and history is never based on Race, DNA, roots and has always been a call for unity of all our cousins in the family tree no matter which branch you may have sprung.
Over the next few months, the MerrickFoundation Org will be publishing John’s book about his life and achievements. We will continue to embrace all branches of the family tree, preserve their legacy and history for our future generations. The Bible asks us if you hate your brother who you can see, how can you love God who you can not see ? Love has no color and here at Merrick Foundation Organization for the preservation of our mutual history and genealogy we shall not be swayed by hate doctrines no matter what faction is pushing to incite conflicts to gain advantage over men’s and women’s lives.
