Présentation de l'éditeur

Book Description:

"The Promise Key is a Rastafari movement tract by Leonard P. Howell, a Jamaican preacher. Published around 1935 under Howell's Hindu pen name G.G. [for Gangun Guru] Maragh, meaning "teacher of famed wisdom", the tract bears some similarities to the Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy, without the stream-of-consciousness language, long opaque abbreviations, and repetition. Most significantly, the identities of 'King Alpha and Queen Omega' were transposed from Fitz Balintine Pettersburg and his wife as in the Royal Parchment Scroll, to Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw. This was one of the key innovations of the Howellites, and is today an article of faith of Rastafari." (Quote from

Format: Broché
This document is a rewriting of the Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy written in 1926. In the meantime, vrom 1926 to 1935, Ras Tafari had been crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I in 1930. The document then is clear about who King Alpha is, though Queen Omega is still not identified as a particular individual. The style and language are also a lot better. I am going to concentrate on what is original in this document.

The first element is that Ethiopia is identified to Judah in the Bible by a reference to Genesis 49:10 in which the scepter of the King of Judah is set in parallel to the one given to King Ras Tafari during his crowning ceremony: “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh come: And unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.” It is reinforced by a reference to the generic Psalm 72:

72 Give the king thy judgments, O God, And thy righteousness unto the king's son.
2 He will judge thy people with righteousness, And thy poor with justice.
3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, And the hills, in righteousness.
4 He will judge the poor of the people, He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.
5 They shall fear thee while the sun endureth, And so long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6 He will come down like rain upon the mown grass, As showers that water the earth.
7 In his days shall the righteous flourish, And abundance of peace, till the moon be no more.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River unto the ends of the earth.
9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; And his enemies shall lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute: The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him; All nations shall serve him.
12 For he will deliver the needy when he crieth, And the poor, that hath no helper.
13 He will have pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he will save.
14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence; And precious will their blood be in his sight:
15 And they shall live; and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: And men shall pray for him continually; They shall bless him all the day long.
16 There shall be abundance of grain in the earth upon the top of the mountains; The fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: And they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
17 His name shall endure for ever; His name shall be continued as long as the sun: And men shall be blessed in him; All nations shall call him happy.

The second element is the rejection of the Christian religion as being false: the Pope of Rome is identified as “satan the devil” and as delivering poison n° 666, that we know is the number of the beast in the Book of Revelation. The Anglo-Saxon whites who practice and advocate this religion are identified in their feminine gender as a nation to the daughter of Babylon and to the daughter of Chaldeans. This is based on Isaiah 47:

47 1Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

And that point is concluded by a call for vengeance.

Yet this new religion centering on the King-God Ras Tafari is attached to Solomon in the Old Testament who supposedly reigned in Ethiopia. This is important because Solomon’s father is King David and Jesus is a descendant of the House of David. Jesus’ mother is also asserted as being the Black Virgin. In other words that document states that Solomon, hence David, and consequently Jesus and his mother are all black. This is rather systematic and it goes along with the rejection of Adam-Abraham-Anglo-Saxon-white, the leper or the Anarchy, definitely the slave-owner.

Adam and his clan delivered on pure humanity what is called “the Adamic deadly diseases” also attributed to the “Anglo Militant fallen Angel tongues” meaning the English language that appears to be one of these Adamic deadly diseases, and poison n° 666 of apocalyptic reputation. We could of course note that the model of this spoliation of humanity and hijacking of true black religion is built on the model of the elimination of Indians in America both by deadly diseases brought by the Adamic whites and by the circulation of the poison known as alcohol. What is strange is that the worst practice in that perspective, the maiming of Indians left behind to die or the violent and radical extermination of these Indians is not kept in the constructed reference and description, except when referring to lynching and the KKK.

But a strange reference to the Bible is also added in that line. Noah is seen as an ancestor of the blacks. He is hence seen as being black. We can note it is an important difference with other documents in the same line that consider black skin was a punishment from Noah who had been “seen” naked by his youngest son Ham. Noah cursed Ham’s youngest son Canaan to be the servant of servant of his brothers and uncles and all other people understood as being white, hence to become a slave. It is important to be clear about this racial reference. Nothing in the Bible can support this assertion, but the answer of these believers is then clear: the Bible has been cleaned up and whitewashed. Here is what we know about Noah as depicted in Genesis:

5 […] 28 And Lamech lived a hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:
29 and he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us in our work and in the toil of our hands, which cometh because of the ground which Jehovah hath cursed. […]
6 […] 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah.
9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, and perfect in his generations: Noah walked with God.
10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. […]

In that line the document goes on with the assertion that King Noah was black just after stating that the Exodus was the property of black people. And here we reach an utmost level of racial rejection:

“The Adamic tree of knowledge and Eve the mother of Evil, see Genesis 2nd chapter. The Adamic apple tree my dear leper your name is Adam-Abraham Anglo-Saxon apple tree, that look pretty and respectable to your eyes don't it? Yes indeed—gross beauty is the Queen in hell, and Royal leper Adam and Eve and Abraham and Anglo-Saxon are all white people if you please.
King Alpha and Queen Omega said they are Black Arch Sovereign of most Holy Times, and perfect Virginity, and Supreme Crown Head of Holy Times, the Pay Master and keeper of the Perfect Tree of Life and creators of Creation, Dynasties and Kingdoms, Holy Genealogy and Holy Theocracy and Celestial in Terrestrial Mediator if you wish to know their profession.[…]
King Alpha and Queen Omega are Black People if you please. They are commonly called the Exodus if you please, the book of Exodus is theirs if you please. Notice if you see Moses and Aaron and Abraham gave any strong report of King Alpha and Queen Omega in their fake Bible if you please. Well since a man has right to pay without work, this world can also work with pay. […]
King Alpha and Queen Omega said they are our parents, and the keeper of the Tree of Life. He and his wife are not any family at all to Adam and Eve and Abraham and Isaac and the Anglo Saxon Slave Owners; for that is exactly how His Majesty King Noah the Black Monarch was drowned at Antediluvia by Adam Abraham the Anarchy.”

That level of rejection and rewriting could even be seen by some as hysterical and definitely paranoid. But it reveals how the religion that motivated the white colonists and slave-owners in their exploitation of black Africans is not rejected but integrated and warped into supporting the reversal of the white supremacy ideology into a black supremacy ideology. Ten to twelve generations of slavery, minimum, must be understood in Willie Lynch’s perspective as transforming a free wild savage into an obedient submissive slave positioned under the horses of the plantation and slightly over the oxen and cows of the same. But the use of first of all brutal physical force amplified by all kinds of moral humiliation and physical abuse like lack of food and rape for women, men and children are the tools of this submission. Then we can grasp the concept of Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome and this religion is not alleviating the syndrome but purely compensating the superficial symptoms by ideologically inverting the situation and advocating that heaven has to be on earth under the authority of the living God, King Ras Tafari.

Ras Tafari, the Supreme God, founds his religion on four virtues: “absolute Love, Purity, Honesty and Truthfulness.” In the same line of racial claiming the episode of Jesus and the woman fo Samaria wrongly referred to Matthew 3 instead of John 4 shows how a Samaritan woman can be convinced of the truth by Jesus and then she brings the good news to her fellow Samaritans. That dramatizes the fact that the whitening of the Bible is founded on the rejection of Samaritans in spite of Jesus’ open-mindedness. We must keep in mind that the Samaritans are not Jews, which means the whitening of the Bible was done first of all by the Jews. This will strongly support the anti-Semitism of many blacks, as James Baldwin will himself explain later, because the Jews – supposedly – persecuted Jesus and had him crucified. Make Jesus black and the – supposed – crime is amplified.

That leads to the next idea that salvation, the future of humanity is in black supremacy that will have to recognize three classes: the blacks, the whites and the mixed bloods who are the children of black women slaves raped by white slave-owners, and later on in the present the children of black women and men who accept to have sexual intercourse with white people, hence soiling the purity of the race. That is not really new, but it is said with a tremendous force in this document:

“Both rapers [both the white rapers and the black rapers, interracial sex being identified as rape] and mob lynchers and Klu-Klux Klan are to be shot down from off the face of God Almighty's beautiful earth.”

All the other members of the white race are supposed to accept black supremacy and submit to the power of King Ras Tafari, the King of Kings, the God of Gods, the Supreme God, etc. But these identified spoilers of purity have to be eliminated radically. That is not even the death penalty after a fair trial: it is pure and simple extermination of some categories of people.

Salvation for the blacks is in this life based on the recognition of King Ras Tafari as a living God and supreme authority, the practice of the four virtues we have identified, the acceptation of black supremacy and the elimination of those we have just identified as the soilers and spoilers of purity.

“The Royal name of this Ethiopian dignity is called Black Supremacy, by the Sacred Order of His Majesty Ras Tafari the living Creator, the living God, and Earth Superior, the master builder of Creation, the perfect Royal Head of this World.
King Ras Tafari and Queen Omega the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the conquering Lion of Judah, the Elect of God and the Light of the World, the First and the Last, the beginning and ending.”

This religion sets up a situation in which individuals who have to accept such an alienation of their freedom to a single man seen as divine are subjected to a dictatorship that negates their basic rights and liberty. It is not because such a level of subservient dependence is called divine that it is morally justified. This vision is theocratic in essence and unluckily in the 1930s corresponded to several other models of theocratic or secular absolute totalitarianism. The belief that the supreme leader of a people or a nation is of divine essence is of course in no way a gate towards civil rights and freedom for the people who are more or less forcefully subjected to such a dictatorship.

Yet this document is essential to understand that in the 1920s and the 1930s all kinds of totalitarian and eugenic political or religious thinking and models developed. Were these twenty years doomed if not cursed by history? It would be easy to say that the First World War was a crime against the cosmos, that the Versailles Treaty was a crime against humanity and that both crimes had to be purged and cleansed by the 1929 crisis, by the rise of all types of totalitarianism, by the Second World War and beyond by all the colonial wars from Korea to Algeria and Vietnam and by the Cold War at the level of the planet itself. This would mean that when humanity makes a mistake in the light of history, history makes that humanity pay the costly price that may be able to buy some salvation.
