"Black Indians": Five Percenters & Talking Drums

Peace! Frequently Gods and Earths appear in the media and often times the public is not aware. I have reposted an article about a member of the Nation of Gods and Earths, Mwalim Allah, and member of the Mashpee Wampanoag. Bridging two worlds with, like the title of one of his book of poems, a "mixed medicine bag", Mwalim represents a reality of ‘oneness’ from what would appear on face value as two different worlds. Showing forth, that the Original man is ONE. Because Allah is ONE. There is no separation between the Black, Brown and Yellow. We are the Original Man. Please support the God!
