Would be counted among the absurd"

Listen-The Cream Shall Rise
My grandmother told me this 60 years ago.  “The cream is the essence and the best part of the milk and it always rises to the top.” She said, “You, my son, are the cream of humanity. All humanity started with your ancestors in Africa and don’t you ever forget it. You are neither a “nigger” nor a “Negro”; you are a Race Man and descendant of Kings and Queens. You are royalty and the cream of this planet and just like that cream rose to the top of that milk bottle, you will one day rise back to the top of civilization, because the cream shall always rise.”

Honoring Our Ancestors
Welcome to another episode of Breath Of My Ancestors…The podcast that broadcast Ancestors from the Past. I’m your host Ty Gray-EL and it is my prayer and intention to be a vessel through which our Ancestors speak. First, I give all honor, adoration, thanksgiving and praise to my Creator and honor to my Ancestors upon whose shoulders I stand today. The most significant of which, in my humbled opinion, is Jesus…Yeshua - The Christed One, my ancestor, who has had the most profound affect on my life and the world at large. By the grace of almighty God this testimony is dedicated to the indomitable spirit and breath of my ancestors. It is a tribute to the African/Edenic (those first people who originally abided in Eden) people who triumphed over the most unspeakable holocaust in the history of mankind, chattel slavery.
