Exposing Rome's papal geo-political supremacy
- Part 1
Colour of smoke does matter

Now that the conclave of 115 Cardinals have elected
German-Bavaria-born Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XV1) as the
265th Pope of the Catholic Church, certain aspects of the selection
process need to be examined along with the exposure of the past
geo-political supremacist history of the Church.
At the outset, it must be noted that the modus operandi of the
papal selection process dictates that when "Black smoke rises
from the chimney above the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican" it
indicates a "no choice" decision among the Cardinals; however,
when White smoke rises , it indicates " a choice" in the
decision to select a new Pope.
In other words, the racist "Black Box" syndrome/scenario/ mind-set
in relation to a plane crash is visibly and deeply entrenched in the
Euro- Vatican hierarchy.
The fact of the matter is that the papal decision-making process
smacks of European supremacy at its zenith. . Ergo, the Euro-Roman
Catholic Church is ossifying and perpetuating the supremacist notion
that the colour Black is associated with any and everything that is
ugly, sinful, powerless, negative, wrong, inferior, illegal and
indecisive, while the colour White is associated with any and
everything that is beautiful, pure, holy, powerful, superior ,legal,
positive, right and decisive.
To all intent and purposes, the Vatican's zenophobic conclusion is
that the colour Black is an aberration, anathema , anachronism,
while the colour White is the norm, standard, model for effective
This papal decision-making process supports the contention that
Christianity/Roman Catholicism is one of the nine potent weapons in
the armoury of Europeans to destroy, decimate and annihilate Afrikan
If the Euro- Roman Catholic Church wants to shed this etnocentric
label/image, then, during the selection for the next Pope, Red smoke
should indicate a "no choice" decision among the Cardinals and Green
smoke should indicate "Habemus papam, Habemus papam",--- "we have a pope."
Moreover, Jewish human rights groups such as the Simon
Wiesenthal Centre, has publicly praised the new Pope as a
"friend of the Jewish people" and his "anti-Nazi roots".
While all these accolades may be valid and apropos, one needs to
"look below the surface" as it relates to the unholy , supremacist
geo-political history of the Roman Catholic Church and Afrikan
Let us recall that it was the European Christian Roman Catholic Pope
Nicholas V who on 8 January 1455, per his Papal Bull titled "Romanus
Pontifex", authorized fellow European Portuguese "to subject to
servitude all infidel peoples."
This papal dictum both legalized and religiously sanctioned the
enslavement of Afrikan peoples by Europeans in the name of God. This is
so because in religious matters, the Pope is infallible; ipso facto,
a Papal Bull is the "word of God."
On 13 March 1456, Pope Nicholas V's Papal Bull titled "Inter Caetera"
granted to Prince Henry of Portugal "all lands discovered or
conquered in Africa, to and including the Indies."
And in a Papal Bull also titled "Inter Caetera" dated 3 May 1493,
Spanish-born Pope Alexander V1 granted to the Spanish King Ferdinand
and Queen Isabella "as their personal property and peculiar
responsibility, rights in the countries discovered by Columbus as were
enjoyed by Portugal in Africa."
These two papal dicta both legalized and sanctioned the initial
colonialisation of Afrikan peoples by Europeans, beginning with the
Portuguese and Spanish.
It must also be recalled that the Pope of Rome was the most powerful
person on planet-earth in the 15th century.
Hence, it need occasion no great surprise that when the two European
global superpowers, Portugal and Spain, were at each other's throats
in regard to global control and dominance, they went to the Pope of
Rome to prevent a war between them.
Thus, on 8 June 1494, Pope Alexander V1 ratified the Treaty of
Tordesillas whereby he decreed that all lands discovered West of the
imaginary demarcation line he drew across the earth went to Spain and
lands discovered to the East were given to Portugal.
As a result of this papal dictatorial, geo-political decision in the
15th century, Afrikans in Brazil speak Portuguese today.
The afore-mentioned therefore speaks volumes as to the subversive,
licentious, contemptuous, nefarious, psychopathic and diabolical
alliance/collusion between the European Christian Roman Catholic
Church and major European global powers in the enslavement and
imperialistic colonialisation of Afrikan peoples.
It also brings to the fore the stark geo-political reality that the
Roman papacy has always been wrapped up in the swaddling clothes of
European supremacy --- a phenomenon that now masquerades under the
sobriquet of Globalisation.
This, indeed, is the ultimate " manifestation of the evil genius of
Europe" and Europeans.
Let us recall that under brutal pressure from the demands of the
Renaissance and Reformation Movement in the 15th century, Pope
Julius 11 commissioned Michaelangelo to paint the Holy Family in
the Sistine Chapel in 1509. Michaelangelo painted his uncle as
Joseph, his blonde, blue-eyed aunt as Mary (who suddenly became
pure and virgin) and his cousin (who was gay) as Jesus.
As deceased Afro-centric, Afrikan-American historian Dr. John Henrik
Clarke correctly asserts: "Europeans not only colonized the world but
more importantly, they colonized information about the world,
including the image of theAfrikan Gods."
As a result of Pope Julius' 11 papal supremacist geo-political
decision, the original Black, Afrikan spiritual Triad of Asuar, Iset
and Heru is now portrayed as White, European in their derived
Christian, religious form .
The geo-political record also shows that in October 1997, the Roman
Catholic Church of France atoned and apologized for its silence and
begged "forgiveness for Catholic inaction as (Hitler's) regime sent
Jews to their deaths in the '40s."
Now is the time for this new Pope of the Roman Catholic Church to rectify
this past shameless, unconscionable, anti-human record by issuing a
public "act of contrition" per an Encyclical Letter (aka Papal Bull in
15th century) to atone and apologize for the Church's pivotal,
magnanimous and all-inclusive action as fellow Europeans sent over 100
million Afrikans (human beings) to their deaths (particularly during the
Middle Passage) over the period of their enslavement.
This period lasted from 1516- 1834(38) in case of Afrikans in the
Caribbean and from 1619 -1865 in case of Afrikan-Americans.
Truth Be Told: Why Afrikan peoples still belong to and worship the God
of, this supremacist religion of their enslavement , exploitation,
oppression, colonialisation and genocidal extinction (Afrikan
Holocaust or MAAFA) is the penultimate wonder-question of this
Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").
