John Lee Harris says of the Numerican Nation:
"In as much as we are not immigrants, in the traditional sense of the word, I prefer to think of us as the Numerican Nation: A spiritual people borne of slavery."And he writes:
I’ve postulated that our family’s identity is inextricably bound-up in the past; therefore, we are Numericans.
Numerican is constitutive of two words, Numen and American.
In ancient times the word numen denoted a local divinity, or presiding spirit of a place. The word American simply refers to “the New World”.
Our forefathers lived and died in the Carolinas’; their numen and/or spirit reside there:
Whereas Africans, Eurasians, and Native Americans entered, new Americans emerged, a spiritual people borne of slavery. Their identity forever changed through the passage of time.
Implicit thereto is the fundamental belief that historians simply got it wrong; 250 years of bondage left the Numerican Nation without global roots.
