Dear Congressman King:
I saw the exchange you had with Chris Hayes, Charlie Price, and April Ryan during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, in which you challenged them to, “go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people…where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?” I was not sure of whom you meant who overachieved in their contributions to the world, but you clarified quickly, saying you were speaking of, “western civilization itself that’s rooted in western Europe, eastern Europe and the United States of America, and every place where Christianity settled the world”.
I happen to be a member of one of the “other categories” of people. Honestly, I am a member of more than one, since both of my parents’ ethnicities and lands of origin were diluted, thanks to the Transatlantic slave trade, which is one thing major thing for which those western civilization Christians. I have spoken with members of other “subgroups”, and we have decided that since you do not think that we contributed much to the world, then you obviously do not need what we have given to civilization. I would ask that you please refrain from utilizing the following items that we subgroups have introduced to the world:
Please refrain from using any type of plumbing and irrigation. Though Romans get credit for it, It was actually the citizens of the Indus Valley Civilization who invented plumbing around 2700 BCE, nearly 1000 years before Romans coined the phrase “plumbing”, based on their use of lead pipes, which we now know to be very dangerous. If you could not tell, the Indus Valley Civilization is in modern India.
Please do not use any hospitals for health treatment, as the practice of medicine was developed in Egypt, Babylonia, India, and China, all about the same time, and all about 500 years before anyone in the western world thought to do so. If you are only referring to the time that Christianity was spread to the western world, then you should not accept any blood transfusions since Dr. Charles Drew was the father of the blood bank, turn down any cardiac surgery as Dr. Daniel H. Williams performed the first open heart surgery, refrain from getting eye treatment since Dr. Patricia Bath is an inventor and opthamologist who revolutionized many aspects of her craft. These people are from the “subgroup” we now call African American. I know their names sound English, but that is a result of the aforementioned transatlantic slave trade that occurred years before.
Please turn in any degree of higher learning you may have earned, as the world’s first university and oldest university, the University of al-Qarawiyyin, was founded in Morrocco. You can still visit it today if you doubt me. It was founded by a Muslim woman by the name of Fatima al-Fihri as well, and judging by your voting record regarding women’s issues and your views on Islam, I am sure you will not want to have anything related to a Muslim woman anyway.
If you have any books on your shelves, please refrain from reading them, as books were invented by ancient Mesopotamians, then perfected by ancient Egyptians and Chinese. In fact, the first published author was a woman by the name of Enheduanna, a Sumerian woman. You likely do not want something in your house whose existence is thanks to a woman, especially not a western one. THis may not be a very difficult task for you; given your statements, it seems you have not picked up a book in a very long time.
The next few things will likely be easy for you to stop utilizing, given your voting record on education spending and aversion to the subject. Science, all science, was first developed Africa, specifically the base of the Nile river. The term “science” may have been developed in Rome, but the birthplace of the practice of science is the heart of the area now called Sudan and Tanzania, as that is as far south as the Egyptians ruled at one time. None of these are European regions, so please refrain from using any science.
Additionally, please stop using mathematics. The study of mathematics is attributed to Babylonians, who are the ancestors of the people you wish to deport and ban from entering this country. Geometry was developed in ancient Egypt. Calculus was in practice throughout ancient South America, North America, Africa, and Asia, thousands of years before Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Liebniz were crowned the independent fathers of calculus. There innovations would not have been possible were it not for their learning of algebra, which if you cannot tell, is a mathematical concept born in the Middle East. It’s root word is the Arabic word al-Jabr, which means, “reunion of broken parts”. Given math’s African and Middle Eastern roots, I doubt that you will have trouble refraining from using them. I am sure you will want to bring up all of the advances that Albert Einstein gave to the study of physics, but please remember that he did so in the early 2oth century, and he is Jewish, and back then, Jewish people were not considered “white”.
I ask that you stop using all of these things that were not originally created in the western civilization that you claim made the large portion of contributions to modern society. Also, civilization is a simultaneous invention of ancient Africans and Asians. It did not come to Europe until it was introduced to Europe through those ancient civilizations’ desire to explore and expand. Christianity is a Middle Eastern invention as well. The person you know as Jesus was born in Palestine. His followers were all of Middle Eastern descent. None of them were European. So if you would please refrain from being Christian, we would appreciate it.
If you would like to continue to enjoy all that people not of the “Western Christian Civilization” have given to the world, then please acknowledge our and our ancestors’ contributions to modern society. If you do not, then I request that you provide from whence you got the notion that the only primary contributors to modern society are Europeans. I would assume that you received this information from Stormfront or talks with David Duke or Don Black. It may be in the welcome package that one attains from joining the Aryan Nations or the Brotherhood of the Ku Klux Klan or the American Nazi Party. I would just like to be sure that the public and I know, so that voters in your constituent can be better informed. I would like this information and your decision sooner than later, and I would say that the clock is ticking, but the first functional clock in America was built by Benjamin Banneker, so I would understand your aversion to timepieces.
If you would like to know Steve King's educational sources, or if you can think of other things that Steve King should not use since they weren't developed in Europe, please send him a letter at https://steveking.house.gov/contact or at:
