Etymology of Black and Moor

The word ‘Black’ can be traced back to its proto Indo-European origins through the word ‘blac’ which meant pale, wan, colourless, or albino.

‘Blac’ was incorporated into Old French as Blanc, Italian and Spanish as Blanco, Bianca, Bianco, Bianchi.

In Old English “blac” person meant fair; someone devoid of colour, similar to the word “blanc” which still means white or fair person.

In Middle English the word was spelt as “blaec” same thing as the modern word “black”, only at that time, around 1051 AD, it still meant a fair skin, or so-called white person. The words “blacca” an Old/Middle English word still resonates with “blanke” the Dutch-Germanic term for white people of today.

Black in Old and Middle English

Thus, we can see that the Old English ‘blæc’ was relative to its ‘blac’ origin as it was predominantly used as an adjective to describe ‘colour pertaining to matter that was colourless’. Other cognates of ‘blac’ include examples like: Bleak, Blake, Bleach, Blanch.

Good examples of the use of “blac” as something that meant blond or fair can be seen in Old English literature such as K. Ælfred’s ‘Bæda’ from c.890 where the following phrase can be found: “hæfde blæc feax” meaning “have blond hair”.

Black’s Semantic Shifts

It was not till the sixteenth century that the semantic broadening of black occured- both figurative connotations as well as literal.

From ‘blac, blake, bleaken, blaccen’ and their literal meaning ‘to bleach out or make white, blond or pale’ came the figurative meaning ‘to stain someones reputation, or defame’ or darken. Literally “blac” by that time came to mean night-like colour, dark. One can say a very dramatic shift indeed. It was also the era, when the Vandals and the Goths were busy writing themselves into history and writing out the European Mauros (melan-chros or melanin people) out of history.

These additional meanings however was purely negative and as their influence broadened, the semantic shift of black began to mean having malignant or deadly purposes and even pertaining to or involving death- ‘black curse’(1583), and from previous centuries ‘The Black Death’.

Blac underwent a final shift as a K was added to the end of the word and it became a new insulting manner to address the Moors (today’s so-called Blacks) a people that had lived for thousands of years in Europe and around, but were now hated and hounded. They were called the Queen’s Black enemies, the blacca moors and finally just the adjective used as a noun, blacks.

It should be noted for the records that word used to describe the colour black in historical and classical Europe was the word Moor (also Melas). First used in Europe by the Greeks, as Mauros. Its cognates are found in every European language even if variant spellings are used. Thus you have Mohr (German), Maure, Mire, (French), Moor (English), Moros (Italian/Spanish), Mor (Old and Middle English). All those variants meant the same thing, the colour today known as black.

The Europeans took away our names, called us niggers, coloureds, blacks, negros, Africans, subsaharans, etc. All those are insulting names. We are none of those. Not Jamaicans, not Nigerians, nor Americans.

We are Moors, from the most ancient time. Umoros, Umorus, Muurs, Mawus, the children of light, the bearers of civilization and compassion, the golden ones, the first people, Ethiopians, Mauritanians and Mauritians.

Check ancient history, you will hear of the Moors, but you will not hear about negros. The pale ones (the blanks) stole our names, and pretended it referenced only some Arab Muslim conquest of Spain.

Nooooo! The Greeks knew the Muurs, the Romans knew the Muuros, the ancient Indians and the Chinese too. Because ancient Egyptians called their land Ta-Meri, or Ta-Muri, the land of the Muurs. They were the sea-men who navigated the globe and brought the light to all.

We are those Muurs. We are their descendants. We are not the blacks. The blancho people, the so-called white people of today, they are the blaccas.

  5. Mauritania, derived from the latin: Maurus or (Mauret) and the suffix “an” or (anus) meaning “pertaining or belonging to the Maurus”, Named by a colony Romans who arrived under Claudius Ceasar, after the Greeks,
    The Mauritania of the Romans was ancient Fez and Morroco, it later expanded further into the interior,
    The people once known indiscriminantly as Maurusi because they were black skinned and Barbaroi (beber) because of their strange language and customs, roamed the Norther frontiers of Africa,
    neither the Greeks nor Romans could communicate, because they did not speek their language, so they could not have known to call them by a tribal name “Muur”” you claim is indigenous to the ancient North Africans.

    “You asked for a tribe in Africa that call themselves Muurs, search no Muur! IN North Africa, there is a country called Mauretania, land of the Muurs. Was this country named by Greeks?”

    If it was not named by outsiders where did the name originate? (you still have not posted the etymology of the word Muur

    Moor and Ethiopian were not ethnic titles, indigenous Africans already belong to tribes with their own names.

    But i realize that because I do not conform to your misconceptions and misunderstandings i am a negro, that cool because i am, black,

    1. No Temu, you are not a negro, that was meant for real black people with self awareness.

      You, I hear you and I know you are just another pink-ass boy masquerading as a black man. We have constant visits from KKK peckerwoods like you from your hate sites.

      If you cannot post a sourced authority, then you will have to stop posting here. Your empty words stink like hot air, and all I ever really asked you for is some authority, but none you can produce.

      Muuroco, comes from the Southern Ethiopian Semitic term Mara (also pronounced as Moro) and kesh. Mura. It means house builders, or free masons.

      Marakesh, the house of Kesh.

      Among the West Africans of Guinea Coast, Omor, means the Son. i.e. the Benins and the Warris.

      Among the West Africans of the forest region, Mmoor, means Angelic, divine. i.e the Igbos

      Taking back to your silly lies again:

      In Icelandic Norse, Svarti is the word for black, not Blek.

      Svarti means same thing as Swarthy, or Swartz. It still means black, in German, and in English.

      The word Blanc, Bianca, Blanke, all come from the same root Blacca or Bleac. The was the word used to describe your pink ass tribe. You are the Blaccas. Don’t come here with your silly lies.

      In any event, can you tell me the relationship between Nordic and old/Middle English?

  6. Igbo: bwa lu Fa, divine
    Marrakesh conventionally thought to be derived From the North African Berber: Murt-Akush, land of Akush ( Murt derived From ta’mourt meaning land though this is debated.

    From Wikipedia Article on Marrakesh
    “In spoken Arabic the term is Mer-reksh, the exact meaning of the name is unknown according to some but according to Susan Searbrigt, the towns name was first mentioned in an 11th century manuscript of the Qarawiyyin Library in Fez and meant country of the sons of Kush.”

    Jahdey, your best defense of sidestepping the point is to lable me as white,
    I use to be interested in some of the Articles on this website, but my respect for you has dwindled, I see you have little regard for truth and instead of engaging in an intelligent debate you resort to writing inflammatory remarks, I could have responded with the same negative energy but instead I stuck to the subject matter, every definition of you have given of your made word Muur, are different words from different languages with different meanings, your only credibility being they just sound similar, your twisted logic is no different from the Eurocentric lies about the ancient Egyptians being Caucasian, you know very little about Africa and its diverse peoples.

    I wrote that The Icelandic blekk originally meant inK not black, Reread my posts and stop letting anger cloud your mind.

    I do not understand what you mean by southern Ethiopian Semitic, when there are hundreds of languages in Ethiopia and you do not cite specifically which language the term Mara comes from. the ancient Kushites did not speak a Semitic language.

    If you realy consider yourself a disciple of Emperor Selassie you need study his life to learn something about humility and egalitarianism.

    1. Bwoy shut your pink ass with those humility crap! We are far from the days of slavery.

      You are the one disrespecting yourself here with idiocy and evasiveness. You cannot cite any authority, you cut and paste from Wikipedia, you use different pseudonyms to write and cheer-lead your writing. Shame on you.

      The word Muur has been explained to you many times and we have provided you with evidence that across Africa, it has many cognates among the many nations of Africa.

      We took you through a tour of Guinea, Nigeria, Ethiopia. We provided you with living words in living African languages and all you can do is cut and paste what another lying pink ass fool like you put up on Wikipedia? People that rely on Wikipedia to counter arguments from Classical Scholars are not very smart.

      Strabo already confessed that the Ancient Ethiopians called the people of Mauretania, Maures!

      And because the Maures lived ubiquitously in ancient Greece, the name Maure was adopted by the Greeks as a synonym for Africans.

      Ancient Greek language contained 50% or more African language; and the rest of it was Asian.

      Where then in your twisted mind did the word Muur rise from into ancient Greek?

      Why do you still insist that Greeks invented that word when you have been shown that it had an etymology longer than even the Greeks. Where did the Greeks get the word Muur from? From the Ethiopians ofcourse!

      Ta Muri means the land of the Muri, the ancient Muurs. That is Egypt.

      Respecting your whine against Ethiopia, I advise you again that Ethiopians had 3000 years legacy of writing. By Ethiopians I am talking of the Ethiopians of Axum, the Ethiopians of today. They were also known as Ethiopia even in the ancient times.

      A heathen like you should not pronounce the name of his Majesty in vain or else thunder, earthquake and lightening will do you in.

      Welcome again to Rasta Livewire, where ignorance is burn out!
