Was Simeon called Niger in the Bible a black man?
Most probably! If you look up the meaning of the word Niger in the dictionary of the Greek testament, it means black! Simeon comes from the root Hebrew word 'Shimon/Simon' which mean 'to hear' or 'listen' which was actually the name of the man that the Romans called Niger.

Acts 21:38 . 38Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days made an uproar, and led out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?. Paul being called an Egyptian because his physical characteristics resembled the African Egyptians who by all proofs known to modern man was …of the Black race. We must refer to the Holy Bible to see if the latter is so. First let's refer to the Babylonian Talmud translated, by Rabbi Dr. I Epstein. " For when the AFRICANS came to plead the Jews before Alexander of Macedonia, they said ' CANAAN belongs to us, as it is written, the land of Canaan was the ancestors of these people (ourselves)."- Sanhedrin, Vol.II, pp. 608-609. The latter is of great importance because according to the Holy Bible the Canaanites who were black could not be distinguished from the Hebrews themselves. " So Joseph went up to bury his father; and with him went up ALL the servants of PHAROAH, the elders of his house, and ALL the elders of he land of EGYPT......And when the inhabitants of the land, THE CANAANITES, saw the mourning at the threshing floor of Atad, THEY said " This is a deep mourning of the EGYPTIANS"- GENESIS, 50:7-11. Clearly here the Caananites could not tell the difference between the AFRICAN EGYPTIANS and the HEBREWS. Further scrutiny of the Holy Scripture one will see that there was a man named CUSH a Benjamite. Now Cush was an original name for Ethiopia. Ethiopia is a two compound Greek word. The first Greek word is " Ethios " meaning burnt " the second " OPS" meaning faces put it together you will have "burnt faces". The latter name was given to the original inhabitants of that land. Thus "Ethiopia" means: Land of the burnt faces. Please refer to PSALMS 7, ( A meditation of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning the words of CUSH the BENJAMITE). The original name for Egypt was " KEMET" which translate " Land of the black people". Also refer to the Table of Nations located in Genesis chapter 10:6-12. Which speaks about the descendants of HAM. The four sons of HAM was Cush(Ethiopia) , Mizraim(Egypt, a.k.a Kemet), Put(Libya), Canaan(Palestine). (MORE)

When Cain rebelled against God and went to join Satan, God banished him from his presence. Cain asked God what should he do for he woul…d be killed by his brethren. God put a mark upon Cain so that others would not harm him. This mark was that of a black skin. When God flooded the earth in the time of Noah, Noah took with him his three sons and their wives. Ham, one of Noahs sons was married to a descendant of Cain, she carried the curse of a black skin. Her name was Egyptus and it was their daughter who founded the land of Egypt. (MORE)

[v. 27] And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, [v. 28] Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, [v. 29] Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: [v. 30] For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, [v. 31] Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; [v. 32] A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. [v. 33] And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

No one can say who the first black man was, because ALL the races came from Adam (Acts 17:26)(Acts 10:34-35) Ham was the father of Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan from whom the Ethiopians , Egyptians, some Arabian and African tribes, came, though there's no way of knowing if Ham himself was dar…k skinned. If you want an implied answer, it would be the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts (assuming that all Ethiopians are black, but this particular man came to Israel probably for some reason. If he himself was a Jew, then he most likely came for the Passover.) Some people believe the black man came from Cain, as in Abel's brother, because of the curse of God. It cannot be because Cain's descendants died in the Flood. Noah and his family came from Seth, Cain's younger brother. The three sons of Noah (Shem, Ham, Japheth) are said to be the three main races(Genesis 5:32): Black, Caucasian, and Oriental. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- I agree with the eunuch in Acts (basil44) (MORE)

A Moor. Africa at the time was Moor. The Moors came into Africa soon after capturing part of Spain and they crossed at Gladiator, so every black man who made his way into Europe was called at Moor. Not many did. 'Gladiator'? Do you mean 'Gibraltar'? 'Gladiator' is not a place, it's a Roman fighte…r. Surely the Moors were in Africa before capturing part of Spain? The Moor refers to a certain type of Black, with classical African facial traits as: a black complexion, frizzled hear, a flat face, a broad nose, thick and prognastic lips, and high cheeckbones. This type also symbolised pure blood. Othello The Moor is a symbol, and a person. As a symbol of nobility, he is blame less. His demerits are personal. He is the highest ranking person in the play, and the remarks we today see as racist, are really mild criticism of the nobility and kingship by the regent class, the affluent citizens who engaged in trade. Because of descriptions we know there were many Blacks in Europe, they were the first Europeans, but not all conformed to the type of the Moor, as they might have been Asian or fair skinned Africans, or mixed with whites. sill they considered themselves as Blacks.

Atticus says that any white man who cheats a black man, no matter how rich or how high their family is, they are trash.
No, he was not. This is a durable myth, used by racists to try tojustify segregation by saying it was Biblically ordained. That isfalse. Nowhere in the story of Ham in the Book of Genesis does itmention what color he was, nor was he cursed for his color-- he wascursed for disrespecting his father. U…nder patriarchy, suchdisrespect was considered a major sin. We may assume Ham was thesame color and race (Semitic) as Noah's other sons. And again,Ham's color is never mentioned in the story, so there is noevidence he was black. This claim was added years later by peoplewith an agenda, but there is no Biblical evidence to support it.

This comes from the book "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriett Beecher Stowe. In the book, Uncle Tom is a black slave and a devout Christian, who is sold to a horrible plantation owner named Simon Legree just days before he was to be set free by his previous owner (that owner died and his wife sold Tom in…stead of setting him free). His faith in God is tested, but he does not waiver his spiritual beliefs, and on his deathbed, he forgives his tormentors. During the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's, Uncle Tom was not remembered so much as a devout Christian man as he was a slave who just rolled over to please his masters. Many blacks saw his character as accepting of a position subordinate to whites, a quality not shared by those crusading during those volatile times. Hence, the term "uncle" came to mean a black man who accepts inferior treatment by whites. (MORE)

Why is it ok for a black man to call you cracker to your face but you're a racist when you call him a negro?
Answer: Racism is a very broad and difficult subject with which to deal. Some will find offence anywhere. Even when not intended. Negro is just a Spanish word for black though some find this an insult because of historical connotations it has. Others may not. Offence can be inadvertent or int…entional. By far it is the context in which a way a word is used. Answer: To many, it is not seen as "okay" on either side and is racist on both sides. Many racists try to prove their points with such cases by saying that since it is viewed as allowable on one side, to not create any double standard, it is allowable for both sides, but truthfully, this is only used to get away with being racist and saying racist things since it is not viewed as allowable, appropriate, or acceptable on either side.

I don't know about the bible that interesting but there is a myth about a Black god name Murduk in from babylon. I was wondering myself.... Another Answer: Marduk is the patron deity for the Babylonians. It was also referred to as Merodach which means 'the great rebel.' . Jeremiah 50:2-3 … New King James Version (NKJV) 2 " Declare among the nations, Proclaim, and set up a standard; Proclaim-do not conceal it - Say, 'Babylon is taken, Bel is shamed. Merodach [a] is broken in pieces ; Her idols are humiliated, Her images are broken in pieces.' 3 For out of the north a nation comes up against her, Which shall make her land desolate, And no one shall dwell therein. They shall move, they shall depart, Both man and beast.. The first rebel after the flood was Cush. He had many names attributed to him, with Bel, a title of the god Baal being most prominent - it means 'confounder.' These names were past on to his son, Nimrod, who is said to have been a black man. There was a saying that 'can the Ethiopian change his skin?' which was originally, 'Can the Cushite' do this? Nimrod was the 1st great and powerful warrior who founded Babel - Babylon. (MORE)

Mr. Elton is described in the novel as "spruce, black, and smiling." The adjective "spruce" means neatly dressed. The word black here almost certainly refers to his clothing, which would have been the black clothes of a clergyman. We have no indication of Mr. Elton's race, and the only descriptions …of him are rather vague. He is called handsome, and even pretty or beautiful; but that is all we know. In Mansfield Park we have a Mister Crawford who is no minister but is 'absolutely plain, black and plain' and his sister Mary who is brown with a lively black eye. So Mr. Crawford is Black or at least black of complexion. Both Mr. Elton and Mr. Crawford act as Moors, and are like Othello, a symbol and a person, symbolising the setting of the novels. Jane Austen believed black and brown complexioned persons superior. The Moor symbolised nobility, blue blood, and royalty. Austen's personages were light brown, brown, very brown and black, some having classical African facial traits, considered proof of pure blood: noble blood. Like she did according to het brother Henry: a peculiar beauty. So Mr. Elton is also a person, but not noble enough for Emma. Good enough for Miss Harriet Smith who is white. Emma proposes race-mixing, which upsets Mr. Knighley, and which Mr. Elton considers an insult. In Emma Jane Fairfax's complexion is discussed in detail: she is pale, but she cannot be called fair, but has enough colour for beauty; and thus tells us what Emma and Mr. Churchill looked like. Emma Watson, from the Watsons, was very brown, and Emma must have been truly black: and loveliness itself.

A man sat on a 30 foot high pillar for 30 years and his name was Simeon and where is this story in the Bible?
There are three Simeon's listed in the Bible. None seem to fit what you are looking for. SIMEON (Simâ²eÂ·on) [Hearing]. 1. The second of Jacob's 12 sons; so named because, as his mother Leah said, "Jehovah has listened, in that I was hated and so he gave me also this one."-Ge 29:32, 33; …35:23-26; 48:5; Ex 1:1-4; 1Ch 2:1, 2. When his father Jacob was encamped near Shechem, Simeon, together with his next younger brother Levi, displayed a vengeful anger that was unreasonably harsh and cruel. Arbitrarily, without their father's knowledge or consent, they set about avenging the honor of their younger sister Dinah by slaughtering the Shechemites, bringing ostracism upon Jacob's whole family.-Ge 34:1-31. Simeon was later involved in wrongdoing when he and his brothers planned to kill Joseph. (Ge 37:12-28, 36) Whether Simeon, as second oldest, was or was not the ringleader in this plot on Joseph's life is not stated. Years later, when Joseph as food administrator of Egypt was testing out his brothers, Simeon was selected by Joseph to be bound and imprisoned until the other brothers brought Benjamin down to Egypt.-Ge 42:14-24, 34-36; 43:15, 23. Shortly before Jacob's death, when blessing his sons, Jacob recalled with disapproval the violence of Simeon and Levi in connection with the Shechemites many years earlier, saying: "Instruments of violence are their slaughter weapons. Into their intimate group do not come, O my soul. With their congregation do not become united, O my disposition, because in their anger they killed men, and in their arbitrariness they hamstrung bulls. Cursed be their anger, because it is cruel, and their fury, because it acts harshly. Let me parcel them out in Jacob, but let me scatter them in Israel." (Ge 49:5-7) Jacob thus removed any hope Simeon may have entertained of receiving the birthright forfeited by his older brother Reuben. Simeon had six sons, one from a Canaanite woman. As prophesied, Simeon's tribal allotment was not united with Levi's, but these two were 'scattered'; even internally, Simeon's portion was divided up as enclave cities in Judah's territory.-Ge 46:10; Ex 6:15; 1Ch 4:24; Jos 19:1. 2. The tribe of Israel stemming from the families of Simeon's six sons: Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul. (Ge 46:10; Ex 6:15) During Israel's wilderness journey, Simeon encamped with Reuben and Gad on the S of the tabernacle, the three-tribe division being headed by Reuben. On the march, this same tribal arrangement was maintained, with Shelumiel serving as Simeon's chieftain, both of the camp and of the army.-Nu 1:4, 6; 2:10-15; 10:18-20. Reduction in Tribal Population. At the time of the first census, taken a year after the Exodus from Egypt, the tribe of Simeon numbered 59,300 able-bodied men 20 years old and upward who were fit for military service. (Nu 1:1-3, 22, 23) However, about 39 years later, the second census revealed that the tribe had suffered great losses, there being only 22,200 in the same category. This amounted to a decrease of more than 62 percent, far greater than that experienced by any other tribe.-Nu 26:1, 2, 12-14. Moses did not mention Simeon by name in his farewell blessing of Israel. This is not to say the tribe was not blessed, for it was included at the end in the general blessing. (De 33:6-24, 29) Simeon was named first among the tribes assigned to stand on Mount Gerizim in connection with the blessings to be pronounced.-De 27:11, 12. Simeon's reduced size was no doubt considered when it came to assigning individual territories in the Promised Land; the tribe was not given a self-contained, unbroken portion but, rather, cities entirely enclosed within Judah's territory. In this way Jacob's deathbed prophecy uttered more than 200 years earlier was fulfilled. (Nu 34:16-20; Jos 19:1-9; compare Ge 49:5-7.) Simeon shared with Judah in wresting this territory out of the hands of the Canaanites. (Jg 1:1-3, 17) Enclave cities were also set aside in Simeon's inheritance for the tribe of Levi.-Jos 21:4, 9, 10; 1Ch 6:64, 65. Mention in Later Bible History. The Simeonites were mentioned from time to time in the later history of Israel-in the time of David (1Ch 4:24-31; 12:23, 25; 27:16), in the days of Asa (2Ch 15:8, 9), and in Josiah's time (2Ch 34:1-3, 6, 7). This latter reference to Josiah's reforms shows that, though geographically in Judah's territory, Simeon had politically and religiously cast in its lot with the northern kingdom. It appears that in the days of Hezekiah 500 Simeonites struck down a remnant of the Amalekites and took up dwelling in their place.-1Ch 4:41-43. In the prophetic books of Ezekiel and Revelation, Simeon's name occurs along with others of the tribes of Israel. The strip of territory assigned to Simeon in Ezekiel's envisioned layout of the Promised Land lay between those of Benjamin and Issachar, S of "the holy contribution." But the gate assigned to Simeon on the S of the holy city was with those named after Issachar and Zebulun. (Eze 48:21-25, 28, 33) In the vision of the 144,000 sealed ones in Revelation chapter 7, Simeon is the seventh tribe listed.-Re 7:7. 3. The righteous, reverent old man who entered the temple on the very day that Joseph and Mary brought in the child Jesus. It had been divinely revealed to Simeon that before his death he would see the Christ. He therefore took the baby up in his arms, blessed Jehovah, and with holy spirit upon him, declared to the child's mother: "This one is laid for the fall and the rising again of many in Israel." Simeon also prophesied that Mary would be greatly grieved, as if run through with a sword, over the agonizing death of this son of hers.-Lu 2:22, 25-35. (MORE)

No. He was Jewish, therefore he was Middle Eastern and was not African. . Answer: . Abraham descended from Noah's son, "Shem"... and his son, Eber... from whom the "Hebrew" people got their name; and who are of the Caucasian race [see Gen.11:16-26]. . Yet, in Abraham's grandson, Jacob [surnamed…, "Israel"]... a more "colorful" chapter began to develop among Abraham's descendants. Israel [Jacob] had "two sister-wives" [Leah and Rachel] who bore him children... and they each gave him one of their maidservants, Zilpah and Bilhah , respectively [in an apparent rivalry between the sister-wives] to bear him more children than the other; where each child born to the maidservants were "credited" to the respective wife of Israel. . It was a productive rivalry that resulted in [besides an undisclosed number of daughters] Israel becoming the father of TWELVE SONS. From each of which descended one of the "twelve tribes" of Israel. . The "color" of Israel's wives isn't disclosed... although they are revealed to have been ['kissin'] " cousins ." . "...Isaac called for Jacob, blessed him, and said, 'Do not marry any of these Canaanite [black] women. Instead, go at once to Paddan-aram, to the house of your grandfather Bethuel, and marry one of your uncle Laban's daughters ..." (Gen.28:1-2 NLT New Living Translation). . This would suggest that Israel married within his Caucasian race -- and the children born of these two women would have been primarily "white." . The races of the two sister's maidservants, on the other hand, isn't mentioned. One or both of them could have been "black" [or red, or yellow, or...], and the children they bore Jacob may well have yielded the afore mentioned "colorful" addition to Abraham's descendants [with the mixing of their racial traits] -- and Israel's sons and the tribes of Israel probably were [and ARE] a very "colorful" people who are scattered among the nations to this day. . As for " Samson "... he was not a " Jew " of the tribe of Judah [born to Leah, Israel's Caucasian cousin-wife - Gen.29:31-35]. Samson was a " Danite " of the tribe of Dan . . "...a man named Manoah from the tribe of Dan lived in the town of Zorah..." (Judges 13:2 NLT). . Manoah's wife bore him Samson [verse 24]. . And Dan, it turns out, was "credited to Rachel" by being born to BILHAH, Rachel's maidservant . . "So Rachel gave him Bilhah to be his wife, and Jacob slept with her. Bilhah became pregnant and presented him with a son. Rachel named him Dan..." (Gen.30:4-6 NLT ). . While Samson's "skin color" isn't disclosed in the Scriptures -- circumstantial genealogical biblical evidence suggests that he could have been any number of possible colors or skin shades... as neither Bilhah's [nor Zilpah's] racial makeup is mentioned. . But, with all twelve of Israel's sons having a common Semitic father, Samson is revealed in the Bible to have been, at least, of mixed descent. (MORE)
