Elliott mentions at the end of her interview: “Blacks were here first, and Black are going to be here last.” In an interview with journalist and talk show host Karen Hunter. If you don’t know who Jane Elliott is she’s an activist who’s stance is there is only one race, the “Human race”.
Now according to the definition of “race” which is
“A group of people identified as distinct from other groups because of supposed physical or genetic traits shared by the group. Most biologists and anthropologists do not recognize race as a biologically valid classification, in part because there is more genetic variation within groups than between them.” I would have to disagree with “human race” but I like that she’s standing up to end racism.
She’s also famously known for asking a group of white people would they like to be treated like black people in America..
Several people may have been surprised even woken up by her saying blacks were here first and will be here last, but in fact the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that decades ago and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has been trying to tell us that since then as well. The Nation of Islam for decades have been teaching that black people are the “aboriginal people”. Watch the video below as Minister Louis Farrakhan explains.
