It Takes A Nation Of Millions: Racism & American Political Institutions



American political institutions have practiced racism since the founding of the United States in 1776.

The practice of racism existed when America was a subject of the British Crown and it’s practice carried over to when they were a supposedly “free republic” in 1776.

Racism continues to practiced, expressing itself in every aspect of American life.

The title of the second album by Public Enemy, the legendary Hip-Hop group, “It Takes A Millions To  Hold Us Back”, conveys on both an exoteric and an esoteric level; how entrenched the practice of racism is in America and the world all over.


Public Enemy in their song “Party For Your Right To Fight”  from the album “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back” boldly declared:

“J. edgar hoover, and he coulda proved to you
He had king and x set up
Also the party with newton, cleaver and seale
He ended, so get up
Time to get em back
(you got it)
Get back on the track
(you got it)
Word from the honorable elijah muhammed
Know who you are to be black

Party for your right to fight fight
Party for your right to fight fight

To those that disagree it causes static
For the original black asiatic man
Cream of the earth
And was here first
And some devils prevent this from being known
But you check out the books they own
Even masons they know it
But refuse to show it, yo
But it’s proven and fact
And it takes a nation of millions to hold us back”

Public Enemy  in the aforementioned lines is addressing the relationship between the loss of knowledge of the true history of Black people and their oppression.

The mentioning  of J.Edgar Hoover and “the masons” is revealing on many levels.

J. Edgar Hoover, is the notorious violator of human rights and responsible for the infamous COINTELPRO (COunter INTELligence PROgram) better known as COINTELPRO.

J.Edgar Hoover was an active member of the Freemasons.

“Hoover was raised on November 9th 1920 in Federal Lodge No. 1 in Washington D.C. ”

“In 1955 Hoover was coroneted a 33° mason by the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite Southern Masonic Jurisdiction of the Untied States(AASR-SMJ).

He would also receive from the AASR-SMJ the Grand Cross of Honor.

A room at the House of the Temple, the AASR-SMJ headquarters contains a room dedicated to Hoover containing personal papers and records.”

The numerology of the word “RACISM”  is connected to Freemasonry.

When using the English Ordinal/Simple Gematria cipher of numerology, the word “RACISM” has the following value:










In mathematics, the 63rd prime is 307, which is the value of the “FREEMASON” in Jewish Gematria!













The word “RACISM” also is encoded to dynamics that perpetuate its practice.

When the Full Reduction numerology cipher is applied, the word “RACISM” has the following value:










The words “RITUAL” and “MONEY” have the value of 27:










Racism involves a network of exoteric and esoteric rituals to keep the system in place.












Money and racism are interconnected like hydrogen and oxygen molecules that make water.

This is evident with the connection between the enslavement of Africans to the creation and enrichment of Wall Street, the major financial center of world.


Enslaved Africans “also helped build the wall that Wall Street is named for”.

“Slavery was deeply embedded in local life. The marker notes that “by the mid-18th century, approximately one in five people living in New York City was enslaved and almost half of Manhattan households included at least one slave.”

The Wall Street slave market flourished under such circumstances; it persisted on what used to be the Lower Manhattan waterfront from 1711 to 1762.

But the city profited from the slave trade far beyond the exploitation of free labor.

New York financial firms provided much of the capital and expertise that kept the slave system running: they bankrolled Southern plantations, insured slaves as property, and used them as collateral for loans.

And countless companies thrived within New York’s role as a major hub in the Triangular Trade, which sent slaves and the goods plaque3they produced in a constant flow around the Atlantic Ocean from England to Africa to North America.

New York State abolished slavery in 1827, but companies in New York City kept accruing wealth from slavery until the end of the Civil War.

For example, the Domino Sugar Factory in Brooklyn refined sugar cane and molasses produced by slaves in the Caribbean. ”

According to one source “the purchase of a single slave represented as much as $150,000 and more in today’s prices.”

Furthermore, “the value in 2016 of $400 in 1850 (the average price of a slave that year) ranges from $12,500 to $205,000.”

Not surprisingly, “WALL STREET” has a numerology of 63 as does “RACISM”.

When using the Reverse Full Reduction cipher of numerology, the term “WALL STREET” has the value of 63:















Presidents Who Owned Slaves

George Washington

George Washington was an active slave holder for 56 years.

“At the end of his life, Washington made the decision to free all his slaves in his 1799 will – the only slave-holding Founding Father to do so.”

“George Washington owned human beings before he ever made a decision to do so; he inherited 10 enslaved people at the age of 11 when his father died.

He purchased dozens more as an adult. And when he married Martha Custis in his late 20s, she brought even more enslaved people with her to Mount Vernon.”

“George Washington‘s false teeth were not wooden, as you may have heard. They were actually made from a variety of materials, including human teeth.

According to the accounting record in Mount Vernon’s Ledger Book B, the teeth may have been pulled from Washington’s slaves.”

“William “Billy” Lee, Washington’s personal servant, was the only slave whom

Washington freed outright upon the former president’s death (all the others were to be freed upon his wife’s death, though she freed them 12 months after Washington pass–ed.”




Resistance against the being enslaved by George Washington have been recorded.

The efforts of an enslaved African, known by the name “Harry”.

“He was a fascinating rebel named Harry, whose life and times have been painstakingly recreated by the historian Cassandra Pybus.

And Harry’s dogged determination to be free suggests that not all of the slaves found Washington to be the benevolent master whom historians have depicted.

Harry’s first escape from Mount Vernon occurred on July 29, 1771.

Washington was not amused: He “paid one pound and sixteen shillings to advertise for the recovery of his property,” Pybus tells us in the book The Human Tradition in the Black Atlantic, 1500-2000.

Harry was returned a few weeks later. Undaunted and determined to be free, Harry awaited a second chance.

That would come in the early years of the Revolution, on Nov. 14, 1775, when John Murray, the fourth Earl of Dunmore and the Royal Governor of the Colony of Virginia, issued an astonishing proclamation that freed any slaves who were willing to bear arms for the British Crown.

Slaves ran away in droves. Dunmore himself reported that by the end of November, “two and three hundred already [have] come in and these I form into a Corps as fast as they come.”

Including George Washington, 12 presidents are on record as being slave owners.

The other presidents who were slave owners are:

Thomas Jefferson

James Madison

James Monroe

Andrew Jackson

Martin Van Buren

William Henry Harrison

John Tyler

James K. Polk

Zachary Taylor

Andrew Johnson

Ulysses S. Grant


Supreme Court Justices Who Owned Slaves

John Marshall

James Moore Wayne

Peter Daniel

John Campbell

John Catron

“Chief Justice Roger Taney, had once been a slave owner, but had freed all his slaves in 1820, and paid monthly pensions to some of the older ones after freeing them.”

Politicians Members Of KKK & Similiar Groups

Robert Byrd

Hugo Black

Theodore G. Bilbo

John Brown Gordon

Joseph E. Brown

Elmer David Davies

Edward L. Jackson

Clarence Morley

Bibb Graves

Clifford Walker

George Gordon

John Tyler Morgan

Edmund Pettus

John W. Morton

John Clinton Porter

Benjamin F. Stapleton

David Duke

This list provides a snapshot of how racism can survive, by morphing into different forms to ensure its survival.

Consider the following examples from the list:

“John Clinton Porter, a Democrat, was a member of the Klan in the early 1920s and served as mayor of Los Angeles.”

“Edmund Pettus, a Democrat and the U.S. Senator for Alabama, was also a Grand Dragon of the KKK in Alabama.”

“In 1940, the Edmund Pettus Bridge across the Alabama river in Selma was named after him.

On March 7, 1965, it became a civil rights movement landmark when 525 to 600 civil rights marchers on their way from Selma to Montgomery attempted to cross the bridge, but were turned back and attacked by Alabama state troopers and members of the Ku Klux Klan.

This event has since been called Bloody Sunday.”

“John Brown Gordon, a Democrat and the U.S. Senator for Georgia, was a founder of the KKK in his home state of Georgia.”

“Robert C. Byrd, was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter.

After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career.

Though he later said he officially left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group’s Imperial Wizard stating “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”

Byrd attempted to explain or defend his former membership in the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.

Byrd, a Democrat, eventually became his party leader in the Senate. ”




The ability to justify the enslavement of African people in any manner is nothing but demonic.

Interestingly enough the word “DEMONIC” has a value of 63, as does “RACISM”.
