The Asante-European wars are a series of wars that were instigated by the British and fought for control over the land and resources of present day Ghana between the early 1800's and early 1900's. The wars began in the late 1700's when the Asante defeated the Fanti peoples in the Asante-Fanti Wars. After the end of hostilities between the Fanti and Asante, the Asante were granted the "papers" to the cape coast castle. After which, the Asante nation controlled from the middle of Ghana to the sea. Because the British has some control over the coastal areas, and some influence over the coastal kings, the Asantehene and the British Governor often worked together to solve political issues. There was a point that they created a treaty that stated "Should any coastal state act in a way st to cause annoyance in the Asante Nation, or to show disrespect toward the Asantehene, the Governor would reprimand the state. One of these times came after one of the coastal states, the Fanti began to act as if they weren't under a part of the Asanti nation anymore. The Governor failed to reprimand the Fanti, and from then on the White man was known to not keep promises. After some years there was no word from the British Governor so the Asantehene disregarded the treaty, and advised his people to stop trading with the British. In the following years, the British began to empower the coastal states, using divide and conquer tactics against the Afrikans of the area.

Loving Black Family

Today I wanted to discuss a show that used to come on TV and is decent. Decency is rarely seen today. The program is called Roc, and it came on in the early 90's. The show revolves around 4 main people. Roc, a Baltimore sanitation worker, his wife Eleanor, who works in a hospital, his father, and Eleanor's brother. Its nice because it shows a family that loves one another, struggling through Black life in America. They have their ups and downs but it usually ends in some heartwarming uplifting scene. There are times where it the show ends on a depressing note, but that's black life too.

Honorable Elijah Muhammad author of Message to the Blackman in America Chapter: America is Falling Her Doom is Sealed

1 I compare the fall of America with the fall of ancient Babylon. Her wickedness (sins), is the same as history shows of ancient Babylon. "Babylon is suddenly fallen and the destroyed howl for her; take balm for her pains, if so she may be healed" (Jer. 51:81). What were the sins of ancient Babylon? According to history she was rich; she was proud and her riches increased her corruption. She had every merchandise that the nations wanted or demanded; her ships carried her merchandise to the ports of every nation.

2 She was a drunkard; wine and strong drinks were in her daily practice. She was filled with adultery and murder; she persecuted and killed the people of God. She killed the saints and prophets of Allah (God). Hate and filthiness, gambling, sports of every evil as you practice in America were practiced in Babylon. Only America is modern and much worse. Ancient Babylon was destroyed by her neighboring nations.

3 I warn you to let their destruction serve as a warning for America. This people has gone to the limit in doing evil; as God dealt with ancient people, so will He deal with the modern Babylon (America). As God says: "Son of Man, when the land (people) sinneth against Me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out Mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it" (Ezekiel 14:13).
