the rant – You are a god. Yes, you, reading this sentence. You are a god. Embrace yourself. Worship yourself. Now with that said, I would imagine that we also have people who are not gods, but rather demons walking the Earth. The status of private interests groups and their corruption and malfeasance is creating an international culture which oppresses human beings and other living things. These private interest groups are the demons walking the planet. Demons support no one but the cult. The human race will stirringly need to construct and adopt a culture, or code of conduct (i.e. Ma’at 42 Principles, T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.) that benefits all people. Everyone has the right to decide their own destiny and culture. Choose wisely. And just remember, the human race starts from the Black.

Introduction – Gender war
For this blog, I will review the differences between African and European political hierarchies and the woman’s role within these civilizations. We will also review Queen Nefertiti and her life span to becoming Egypt’s ancient female king. We will discover that ancient Africa embraced matriarchic empowerment while European cultures shunned women to be less than equal citizens. We will understand that the two cultures have condition women to think and behave in a certain way; either confident or insecure.
Women Empowerment – The matriarchal differences between Africa and Europe
Kara Cooney’s book, When Women Ruled the World (2018), presents a number of ancient female kings in Africa including, Merneith, Nefurosobek, Nefertiti, Tawosret, and Cleopatra VII. Kara explains throughout her book the political culture of Egypt B.C. At the same time Kara is able to identify the sexist flaws within ancient Rome and Greek cultures. In describing women’s roles in Europe, Cooney states, “Women were largely shut out of decentralized governments, like the Greek democratic systems or the Roman oligarchy. In these more broadband conceptions of power, when one man fell, another would take his place, leaving little need for a woman to fill a gap to protect a family dynasty or ensure a royal succession.” (Cooney, pg. 260). European men eliminated any opportunity for a woman to gain political responsibility.
Alexander the Greek enforced this same policy when he conquered Egypt in approximately 330 B.C. (pg. 251). At this time, Africans were enslaved to European culture and rulership; incorporating European ideals, values, and beliefs. Before the colonization of Europe, ancient Egypt was by far the most sophisticated nation in the world. Ancient Egypt accepted political leadership led by royal women. Egyptian civilization trusted women. (pg. 24).
An untimely death of a male king would result in his queen accepting responsibility to carry on the familial dynasty until the prince was ready to be successor to his father’s throne. (pg. 24). In other words, women would be temporary kings until the child was old enough to rule Egypt. Women were responsible for a number of roles within Africa. For now, we will focus on the luxurious life of the “covergirl”, Queen Nefertiti.
A Beautiful Female King – The life of Nefertiti
Nefertiti was born into royalty. She was groomed from a young girl by wet nurses in the royal kingdom of Amenhotep III (pg. 169). Nefertiti was championed to be successful. The name Nefertiti means “The Beauty Has Come.” (pg. 178). This soon to be queen is lauded for her physical appearance and sex appeal. “Nefertiti from Dynasty 18 (1550 to 1295 B.C.) has been immortalized for her beauty. Her limestone bust, now in the Berlin Egyptian Museum, shows a regal and mature woman with a proud gaze, high cheekbones, dark-olive skin, eyes set obliquely in her face, full and luscious red lips…” (pg. 161). The statue we see on the cover is admirably an African woman. This beautiful woman would soon be the Great Royal Wife to the son of King Amenhotep III.
Amenhotep IV was a well prepared prince. When Amenhotep IV turned king, he chose Nefertiti to be his Great Royal Wife. This partnership is recognized as a success. Nefertiti accomplished something no other queen was able to achieve at the time. Her king, Amenhotep IV, crowned her as co-king giving her divine authority beside her man. (pg. 186). Amenhotep, a man from the continent of Africa, respected and trusted his woman enough to award her divine political control alongside him. This has never been attempted or accomplished within European society. Black culture appreciated femininity.
The religious practice within Egypt changed when Amenhotep IV was king. Amenhotep decided to focus solely on Aten, which is the sun’s radiance. (pg. 171). It can be know as the sun of god. This reform in cultural beliefs transitioned the landscape of Egypt. So much so that the pharaoh decided to change his and Nefertiti’s name to match their spiritual evolution. Amenhotep IV decided to change his name to Akhenaten “The One Who Is Beneficial to the Aten.” Nefertiti went through her own spiritual development and was later granted the name Neferneferuaten Nefertiti “The Beauty of the Beautiful One of the Aten, The Beauty Has Come.” (178). The relationship of Akhenaten and Nefertiti supports the idea that their ability to develop together and build one another as partners existed. The couple was able to grow and develop spiritually, politically, and economically.
Sexual Relations in Ancient Egypt: The divine feminine of Nefertiti
The bond was strong between Akhenaten and Nefertiti. They understood the bigger picture of life itself and embedded ancient African traditions within their sex life. Pharaohs were granted the opportunity to participate in harems, comprised of a plethora of royal women. A harem is a building, palace, room, or enterprise with a number of women who are directed to hold significant responsibilities to the king and Egypt. The harem was compartmentalized to incorporate a number of women to breed for the king in order to produce a prince to continue the dynasty. In other words, Egyptian kings were offered the opportunity to sexually engage with multiple women to breed royal children, while other females in the harem were granted responsibility to caretake, sew clothing, or assist in political affairs. (63).
Harems continued for thousands of years. Nefertiti understood this culture her entire life, and consented to Akhenaten hosting a harem. “Akhenaten often showed himself with his queen. But like any other king, he, too, had a harem.” (pg. 184). A royal woman recorded to be one of Akhenaten’s wives was “Kiya.” This woman was known to be Akhenaten’s Great Beloved Wife; as Nefertiti remained the Great Royal Wife. Kiya was respectably know to hold great economic wealth owning vineyards and agriculture. (185). Kiya could be better known to be more of an economic asset to the king than sexual. This means Nefertiti performed the sacred ritual of breeding royal children for the pharaoh.
Read this passage about Nefertiti’s sacred sexual capabilities:
“Hathor [Nefertiti] represented the divine feminine essential to any union between the sun and sky, between light and matter. Nefertiti may even have been given this new name by her husband when she entered the harem. She was meant to represent a sacred sexualized aspect for her husband; this is likely why so much the physical intimacy between the royal couple – kissing and hand-holding, sitting on the king’s lap – was later represented in temples and on stelae. Amenhotep IV’s marital bed had become a place of divine creation.” (170)
Nefertiti understood and accepted her role. There does not seem to be record of her having issue with breeding royal children. Nefertiti gave birth to the king’s children, the first being Meritaten. (169). Essentially Nefertiti understood and accepted her role for the greater good of Egyptian civilization.
These marital practices succeeded for thousands of years and benefited the nation politically and economically. Either way, women were respected at a greater rate than today’s Eurocentric culture. The abuse of women within ancient Egypt has not been found in my research thus far. The abuse of women within Eurocentric civilizations runs rampant and is now a daily practice in the USA.
Black Culture – A way of life that respects all women
The world we live in today is fighting in a culture war. Race and other ideologies are propagated to cause confusion. Through my observations we have practiced and promoted a Eurocentric culture in America. This culture has neglected to position a woman at the top of its political hierarchy (similar to ancient Greece and Rome). With approximately 240 years of U.S. political history a woman has never been granted presidential power, even when a first lady’s husband was assassinated. Female kingships in ancient Egypt lasted approximately 2 and 20 years. Women were rulers when pyramids were being built. Some female kings are arguably more successful than American politicians.
Righteous culture must be brought back to the people. We all must benefit from what this world has to offer. Eurocentric cultures are a fraud. Melanated beings must rid themselves of European culture, and practice the culture that promotes their full wellbeing. Meanwhile, young Caucasians must understand Eurocentric culture will never truly benefit them either. But rather only the demons within the cult. Get rid of this culture and adopt a culture for the betterment of humanity!
