Elijah Muhammad of The Nation of Islam wrote a book titled, The Father of Man-Kind. In the book he teaches that the white race was created by an evil scientist named Yakub.
Yakub set out to create a group of people opposite from his own. According to the story of Yakub, the first white man appeared only about 6,000 year ago on the island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea after a 600 year breeding process called “grafting”.
Yakub’s mother and father died when he was five years old, so he was raised by his uncle. Yakub was emotionally disturbed and rebellious.
He was teased in school because of his extremely large head. He was given the nickname, “the big head scientist” because he was smarter than his peers. At age six, Yakub was in his uncle’s back yard playing with two magnets. He noticed the power of attraction, “unalike attracts and like repels.”
He then told his uncle, “when I get to be an older man, I’m going to make people to rule you.” His uncle replied, “Yakub, do you not know that if you make a man other than the original man who is already here on the Planet Earth, you will be making the devil himself?” Yakub replied, “Nevertheless, I know that which you know not.”
