Can American History Be Trusted? Was John Hanson America’s First Man Of Color To Be POTUS?

I have been asked this question many times before, was there a African man who held the office of President of The United States, way before Barack Hussein Obama?

 

If you listen to the garbage that comes out of Morgan Freeman’s mouth, you’d end up thinking POTUS Obama is not our first Black President either:

“They just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white – very white American, Kansas, middle America,” the Oscar winner continued. “There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president – he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”

 

Now going on Mr. Freeman’s bull shit opinion, there would never be a Black President because there is no man or woman, born in America, of full African decent. All Black Americans are mixed race, including the very ignorant Mr. Freeman.

 

And since the U.S. Constitution prevents one not born in America from being President……Yes. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s first Black President.

 

Or is he……

Let me start black history month a few weeks early. Barack Obama has plans of running for President of the United States, But will he be the first Black President or the 8th Black President? I know this posting will stir controversy but George Washington was not the first President of the U.S. Let’s take a look at history.

 

A “Black” Man, A Moor, John Hanson Was the First President of the United States! 1781-1782 A.D.??? George Washington was really the 8th President of the United States! George Washington was not the first President of the United States. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. Don’t go checking the encyclopedia for this guy’s name – he is one of those great men that are lost to history. If you’re extremely lucky, you may actually find a brief mention of his name.

 

The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land). Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington).

 

In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress. As the first President, Hanson had quite the shoes to fill. No one had ever been President and the role was poorly defined. His actions in office would set precedent for all future Presidents. He took office just as the Revolutionary War ended. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new government and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.

 

All the members of Congress ran for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left running the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington. In fact, Hanson sent 800 pounds of sterling siliver by his brother Samuel Hanson to George Washington to provide the troops with shoes. Hanson, as President, ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags.

 

This was quite the feat, considering the fact that so many European countries had a stake in the United States since the days following Columbus. Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to use on all official documents. President Hanson also established the first Treasury Department, the first Secretary of War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department. Lastly, he declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today.

 

The Articles of Confederation only allowed a President to serve a one year term during any three year period, so Hanson actually accomplished quite a bit in such little time. Six other presidents were elected after him – Elias Boudinot (1783), Thomas Mifflin (1784), Richard Henry Lee (1785), Nathan Gorman (1786), Arthur St. Clair (1787), and Cyrus Griffin (1788) – all prior to Washington taking office.

 

So what happened? Why don’t we ever hear about the first seven Presidents of the United States? It’s quite simple – The Articles of Confederation didn’t work well. The individual states had too much power and nothing could be agreed upon. A new doctrine needed to be written – something we know as the Constitution. And that leads us to the end of our story. George Washington was definitely not the first President of the United States. He was the first President of the United States under the Constitution we follow today. And the first seven Presidents are forgotten in history.

 

 

Then there is this from Mr. Dick Gregory’s Blog Global Watch:

 

A “Black” Man, A Moor, John Hanson

George Washington

And the first seven Presidents are forgotten in history. 

 

I posted this from two different sources because this is the only record of any of this history. Wikipedia even goes as far as to say this John Hanson was an American politician from Sweden….rather than give credit to this Moor, John Hanson.

 

Now I was taught all of my education life prior to attending Grambling University, that the Continent of Africa was a tiny spot of land on every map I had ever seen. Nothing compared to The Good Old U.S. Of A. in landmass, I got to college and was shown a real true map of the world and lo and behold…..The Continent Of Africa is three times the size of the Continent of North America.

 

Who are we going to believe,  when it comes to American history when Texas and a few other racist states, desire to erase any and all history with any reference to slavery?

 

I don’t trust the caucasian race to be honest about jack. Especially anything to do with accolades and proper recognition to Black America.

 

Read These Black History Moments to see exactly what I mean.

 

As for Mr. Morgan Freeman…..maybe he had better read up on Black American History and the articles of the U.S. Constitution, on who is eligible to be President. He just might realize natural born Africans are not permitted to hold the Office of President of The United States.

 

So That would mean Barack Hussein Obama, mixed race or not, is American’s first Black President.

 

As the old slavers would say…one drop of African blood makes you African/Black.

 

So Barack is our first Black POTUS…….or was that John Hanson?

 

 

Hanson-JohnJohn Hanson…..the Moor And Possibly The First Black President of The United States Of America??
