Words are our Best Weapon Against the Lies of History (Truth in the Root of the Word).

ahhhhh at last.
The Gods of the North are indeed Melaninated BEings. Old Irish Celtic lore, which is where I must turn to as much of the information relating to these early habitants has been concealed here in the Northern Lands (Scandinavia). Additional information can be found in the Icelandic Sagas, and depicts the family history of those commonly misnomered Vikings, which were in fact the descendents of the gods.
It is through these ancient celtic stories that are found remnants of the primal memories of these Beings which gave birth to many of humanity’s diverse mythologies. These Beings are later revered as Gods; and in the True History of the Northern Lands these gods were “Black”.
Someone wrote a Message Board:
“I was happening upon a New age website today,and it mentioned that someone of this website was of the “Elder Race” and was in tune With Gaia. After that encounter, I went on Wikipedia, and it mentioned some made up race (something to do With fantasy books). Could anybody enlighten me a bit?”
The response was:
“When I read the title “Elder Race”, the first thing that came to my mind is the race of being created by August Derlith (H.P. Lovecraft’s friend and publisher) to help the human race combat the Great Old Ones when they return to reclaim Earth.”
The Return of the Elder Race
and Opening the Gateway
The Sun Children are considered the true Earth people in that they first experienced individual Soul/Mind while on Earth, as dream children of their star parents.
Which for the Northern Lands these children of the star-beings became their Gods.
They spread from Mu, to Khem, the Northern Lands, the Central Lands to the Southern Seas; it was these children of these magical beings that seeded civilization in each region. They were known by different names and identities, but the resounding energy they left behind was the same; and it told the same story.
The Tuatha De Danaan were “the People of Anu” and formed the pantheon of ancient Scot and Eire lore. They could be roughly compared to the Greek gods of Olympus, or in this case the Northern Gods of Scandinavia. However, what is clear is we are speaking about the same people, told by different cultures and the remnants of civilizations left behind.
Lebor Gabála describes the Tuatha Dé Danann as having resided in “the northern islands of the world”, where they instructed in the magic arts, before finally moving in their dark clouds to Ireland.
These beings taught sciences such as geometry, astronomy, and navigation, and also meta-sciences such as astrology and geomancy. They established sacred centers of learning for their heirs of the lands, where they received oral instruction in the Rhythms of Life (growth and decay), Music, Poetry, and elements within themself.
more to come…

Interview: Black Thor Actor Talks About Racist Comic Book Fans
4 May 2011 10:28
Magic and monsters are fine, but a black guy playing a Norse god? That’s taking things too far.
Idris Elba, who plays Heimdall in Marvel’s Thor movie, has spoken about the backlash caused by the casting of a black actor as a Norse god. Elba’s casting has infuriated a number of groups who feel it is insulting to have a person of color playing a figure often referred to as the “Whitest of the Gods.”
Elba indicated that complaints about his casting came in two types: There were the purist comic books fans who were upset about the changes made to the canon – Heimdall is depicted as white in the comics – and then there were others whose complaints were solely motivated by race. He was reluctant to speak about it too much though, as he didn’t want to fuel the issue. Ultimately, he said, if people didn’t like the casting decisions, they should just stay at home and not see the movie.
Sadly, the fan backlash against Elba’s casting is not a new phenomenon – Penny Arcade tackled it in a comic late last year – and it isn’t the first time that Elba has talked about it. Just over a year ago, he said that Thor had so many fantastical elements that he was amazed that anyone would pay attention to the color of his skin. He acknowledged that he didn’t really look like the traditional image of a Scandinavian, but said that in future there would be more diversity in Hollywood casting. “I was cast in Thor and I’m cast as a Nordic god,” he said. “If you know anything about the Nords, they don’t look like me but there you go. I think that’s a sign of the times for the future. I think we will see multi-level casting. I think we will see that, and I think that’s good.”
Unfortunately, that’s not an opinion shared by his detractors. Some of the Elba’s staunchest – although ostensibly not racially motivated – opponents accuse Marvel of left-wing social engineering, noting that it attacked the Tea Party movement in a recent issue of Captain America, and that Stan Lee is known to support left-wing politicians. Other complainants, who are more directly racist, talk about the “filthy culture of judaism [sic]” and how Elba’s casting is an attack on “White Culture.” While the latter accusation is both disgusting and ridiculous, the former – that the left wing is using the media, and especially Hollywood, as a vehicle for propaganda – is not new. It was also leveled at DC Comics following the news that Superman was going to renounce his US citizenship.
Although Elba doesn’t look like a typical viking, it’s not as if he’s playing a historical figure, and it’s hardly the only liberty that Marvel has taken with the Norse pantheon. As insults go, saying that the Norse gods were actually aliens with some really advanced technology – which is actually true in the Marvel canon – would seem to be much worse than casting a black actor as Heimdall, but strangely, no one seems to be bothered about that fact. All joking aside though, race in the media is a delicate and difficult subject, whether you’re talking about the accusations of “whitewashing” in The Last Airbender movie – which is the casting of white actors as characters of color – or the accusations of racism in Resident Evil 5. It’s an issue that people need to keep talking about though, because like any serious issue, it’s not going to go away if we just ignore it.
DAYS OF THUNDER: We’re counting down to Friday’s release of “Thor” with a month of on-the-set reports, exclusive photos and interviews with the cast and crew of the first truly cosmic Marvel Studios film. Today: Co-star Idris Elba.

I’ve seen “Thor” and Idris Elba is a dominating screen presence as the grim, glowering Heimdall, the all-seeing, ever-listening sentry of Asgard. But not everyone is thrilled to see the British-born actor from “The Wire,“ “The Losers“ and “Luther” in the role. In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine, the actor said he has heard the purists who say that a black actor shouldn’t portray a character rooted in Norse mythology but he is also hearing a chorus of complaint that sounds to his ears like racism.
“Purist comic-book fans are one thing; out-and-out racism is another,” the 38-year-old actor told journalist Leslie Gornstein in a Q&A published Sunday. “Of course, the more I speak on this topic, the more I fuel it. But, look, if people have a problem with me playing the character, just don’t go see the movie, you know?”
There’s a website calling for a boycott of Marvel for inserting “left-wing social engineering into European mythology” with the casting of Elba and the dust-up has been covered in the British press dating back to last year.
Early on Elba took the stance that in a film as fantastical as “Thor” it seems a bit odd to fixate on one authenticity topic. The Guardian picked up this quote in April 2010: ”There has been a big debate about it: can a black man play a Nordic character? Hang about, Thor’s mythical, right? Thor has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers. That’s OK, but the color of my skin is wrong? I was cast in ‘Thor’ and I’m cast as a Nordic god. If you know anything about the Nords, they don’t look like me but there you go. I think that’s a sign of the times for the future. I think we will see multi-level casting. I think we will see that, and I think that’s good.”
Critics of the casting choice point out that in the Poetic Edda, the collection of poems that shape much of our contemporary view of Norse myth, Heimdall is even described as “the whitest of the gods” although some scholars have translated that to “the brightest” the gods. This new film, of course, is based on the Marvel Comics version of Thor and Asgard (and even that source material is in wild flux considering close to 50 years of revision, contradiction and cross-media interpretations) and the otherworldy characters are presented essentially as aliens who use a super-science (that appears to humans as magic) and were deified by the dazzled earthlings of antiquity. All of that makes arguments of authenticity a little slippery.
In the new interview, Elba also touched on his part in the upcoming “Ghost Rider” film, which again stars Nicolas Cage but is being framed as a savvier adaptation of the Marvel Comics character who has been a cult favorite for decades. Asked about his ”alcoholic monk” character and the martial arts prospects of that role, Elba said the interviewer was half-right with the question. “That’s a pretty good description of him … except there are no martial arts. There is some fighting, but in the end he resorts to a gun — sorry. He’s also French. That’s the other part of the description you missed. I kind of adopted an Algerian French accent for that role and had a great time doing it. I liked playing that part”.
Elba praised the star of the film: “Nic is a very generous actor …. When you have an actor of that size and weight, who has been around that long, and you have an ensemble cast, he doesn’t have to do all the things he does to make the cast comfortable. He’ll feed you lines himself again and again and again. He’s very polite to the crew, talks to everyone, doesn’t mind stepping up to his own mark to line up a shot [instead of using a stand-in]. That is generous.”
He also said the special-effects approach of the “Thor” shoot taxed his stamina: “I did green screen for the first time! I wouldn’t like to do a whole movie of green screen, though. You kind of forget the plot a little — like being in a Broadway play and doing it over and over and forgetting your line halfway through. It’s a bit of, ‘Wait, what is this again? Oh, right, Frost Giant. OK.’ “
Elba declined to talk about his work in the upcoming Ridley Scott film, “Prometheus“: “If I did, I would probably be fired. I’m bound to silence.”
