BLACK IN ASIA

Thailand

The Mani people are the original homo sapiens that travelled from Africa and settled in Thailand. They are the original negaritos who moved with other Africans like Andamanese of India, Aetas of Philippines,Semangs of Malaysia  to their present  residence in Thailand. They were there before the other ethnic groups came to form the Thai kingdom. Anthropological studies has revealed that the Thai Mani and Malaysian Semang were the first modern humans to enter the Malay peninsula. They remarked that "the original people of the Malay Peninsular that about 4,500 years ago the Proto-Malays moved south from the Yunnan province area of China into Southeast Asia where they met the Negritos who, for a long time, may have been the only modern humans to live in this area" 

The name Mani is of Mon-Khmer origin and means “human being,” and they speak Tonga language. The Mani or “forest people” as other Thai people call them lives in  the jungles of southern Thailand, in the Banthad Mountain Chain and around the Malaysian border in the provinces of Trang, Phatthalung and Satun.  They are facing extinction and currently their total population is about 300. The Banthad Mountain chain became a base area for communist insurgents during the 1970s and thus a battle ground between communist guerillas and Thai government forces. Especially during the years of 1975-1977, the insurgents were battered in ground and air attacks. The Mani suffered terribly during this war with government forces frequently mistaking the smoke of Mani camp fires for insurgent activity. Those living in Trang and Phatthalung provinces had to move to the sanctuary of Thoungwan district in Satun province.

The Philippines

 The Aetas  are the aborigines of the Philippines who were called negritos by the Spaniards at the time of their reign in the Philippines because of their darker skin color. It is the tribe inhabiting the eastern parts of Luzon and called in different names: Agta, Ita, Ati, or Aeta. About 20,000 of them are spread throughout the country. Their majority can be seen in Pampanga and Zambales while others inhabit the coastal fringes of Northern Luzon, and the mountains of Negros, Samar, Panay and Leyte. As a result of their nomadic life, they live in houses built out of grass and tree branches to easily vacate upon scarcity of surrounding food.

Aeta according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country

Malaysia

 The Semang are a Negrito ethnic group of the Malay Peninsula. Lowland Semang tribes are also known as Sakai, although this term is considered to be derogatory by the Semang people. They are the indigenous peoples of this area.They have been recorded to have lived in Malaysia since before the 200s Common Era (CE). They are ethnologically described as nomadic hunter-gatherers.

The Semang live in autonomous local bands consisting of an elder male (usually the leader of the group), his wife, their sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Their religious beliefs are complex and include numerous deities. Shaman-priests practice magic, foresee the future, and cure illness.

Throughout the History of this Country, the carelessness for Black Life has always been present. For a long time now, the murder of innocent Black Men and Women has been “Legal” but we’ll discuss that later. Mary Turner was a Young Black wife married to her loving husband Hayes Turner. The Couple was on their way to having their first child when a White Mob on their typical “Nigger Hunting Raids” kidnapped her husband. She would later find his Black body hanging from a tree with his penis cut off and testicles in his mouth. He had been tortured to death. She and her husband Hayes Turner practiced a philosophy which would later be called “Nonviolence”. After the Murder of her Husband, Mary refused to stay quiet. She publicly protested the Killing of her Husband and refused to accept that the sheriff called it a suicide. This angered White People in the town and they felt she needed to be taught a lesson. She too would be kidnapped and what comes next would shock Black People forever. The White mob filled with lawyers, police officers, doctors, and Teachers would tie Mary up and viciously beat the pregnant women. They poured gasoline on her and burned off her clothes. They then hung her from a tree and as the white crowd cheered, one of them cut open her stomach and her unborn baby hit the ground. The crowd stomped on the baby and stuck a cigar in its neck. To finish everything, the two of them would be shot numerous times. In the end, No charges would be pressed against the White mob and they would continue on with their lives. Wherever the White Man goes, he brings his legacy. A Legacy of Hate, Deceit, Rape, and Murder. Now ask yourself, who’s the Menace to Society? This is Real White History.Click this link underneath to understand more about tragedies like this and many more up till this datehttps://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=247815095403045&set=vb.218142961703592&type=3&video_source=pages_video_set.

Public body modification can force you to trade one life for another - it’s very rare to be able to have it all (but it can happen with effort). Looking like yourself will force you to work much, much harder than people who all look the same. Being free requires a lot more work than being a slave. Running your own business is more effort than working for someone else. Being an actor is more difficult than watching a movie. Cooking a meal is more difficult than buying a cheeseburger at a fast food joint… but, there are still people left in this world who believe that sometimes the difficult - but free - path is the more rewarding. The fundamental question in becoming publicly modified is a question of finding a balance between how free you want to be and how hard you want to work. The more free you are, the more responsibility you have to take for yourself. The more you blend back into the crowd, the less freedom you have, but the ‘easier’ your life gets. But is it really your life if you’re not controlling it?

Marcus Garvey was probably the strongest voice for Black Nationalism and Pan Africanism during the early 20th century. Although Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois had already carved out their niche in the world for diagnosing and treating the problems of Black Americans, Garvey set out to liberate Black people in a way that was very different from his contemporaries.
Marcus Garvey was a visionary who instilled pride, self esteem, self worth, and racial dignity to Blacks during a time when they were thought to be and treated as inferior beings. He is considered Jamaica’s first national hero.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. was born on August 17, 1887 at 32 Market Street in St. Ann’s Bay, St. Ann, Jamaica. He was the son of Marcus Mosiah Garvey Sr., a mason, and Sarah Jane Richards, who was a domestic worker and farmer.
His parents provided a household where there was financial security. With that security, his father was able to amass a sizable library. His uncle also had an affinity for books. Being connected to his father, young Garvey was reading books at a young age, and developed his own love for reading.
During his youth he became friendly with white students but as they got older, it became apparent that they would have no relationship whatsoever. Racism was an experience that he endured attending school.  He was shunned by the whites that he befriended as a child.
In the early 1900’s as a young man, Garvey traveled to Central America for work. After a couple of years working in the Carribean, Garvey moved back to Jamaica. Back in Jamaica he got serious about acquiring more education. In 1912 he went off to London to study law and philosophy at Birkbeck College. It is here that the philosophies and writings of Booker T. Washington, Martin Delany, Henry McNeal Turner, and Dusé Mohamed Ali helped to shape Garvey’s own philosophy.
Shortly after his two year stint at Birkbeck College, Marcus Garvey returned to Jamaica and formed the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in 1914.
He developed his organization into an influential political unit that spoke aggressively for Black Nationalism. He advocated for the separation of Blacks and Whites and for Blacks to establish their own self rule. He also believed in Pan Africanism which is simply Africa for Africans. Garvey wanted Africans to have control over Africa. He was a staunch opponent of European Imperialism and presence in Africa.
His philosophy differed from Booker T. Washington’s gradual equality and W.E.B. Du Bois’ immediate equality stances. He believed that they both were misguided in their prescription for America’s race problem.

Garvey believed that it did not matter how much education a Black person acquired, or how hard they worked. As long as Blacks were social, political, and economic competitors to Whites, they would always be discriminated against. Marcus Garvey thought that Blacks would never have an equal and fair existence in America. He believed the only answer was for Blacks was to go back to Africa.
At the height of his back to Africa movement, he had millions of African Americans ready to go. As he became more of a threat to the racist American power structure, they did what has always been done to Black leaders. They infiltrated, tried, convicted, imprisoned and eventually deported Garvey.
Garvey died in London in 1940 after suffering two strokes, reportedly after reading an erroneous, and negative, obituary of himself in the Chicago Defender which stated, in part, that Garvey died “broke, alone and unpopular.”
His legacy was far reaching and significant. Dr. King once said Garvey “was the first man of color to lead and develop a mass movement. He was the first man on a mass scale and level to give millions of Negroes a sense of dignity and destiny. And make the Negro feel he was somebody.”
