If you go to the Southeast Hospital main entrance, you will see a big mural up high on the wall to your right. The very first person on the far left, the little dark face, African looking guy is "ImHotep" IMHOTEP WAS THE FATHER OF MEDICINE. HE IS RECOGNIZED AS SO BY MOST WISE PEOPLE IN THE MEDICAL FIELD/

Now you are in on the big secret too.

So mote it be

Imhotep (sometimes spelled Immutef, Im-hotep, or Ii-em-Hotep; called Imuthes by the Greeks), circa (fl. 27th century BC (1/4/2650-12/4/2600) Egyptian ii-m-ḥtp *jā-im-ḥat āp meaning "the one who comes in, with peace") was an Egyptian polymath,[1] who served under the Third Dynasty king, Djoser, as chancellor to the pharaoh and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis. He is considered to be the first engineer[2], architect and physician in history known by name.[3] The full list of his titles is:
Chancellor of the King of Lower Egypt, Doctor, First in line after the King of Upper Egypt, Administrator of the Great Palace, Hereditary nobleman, High Priest of Heliopolis, Builder, Chief Carpenter, Chief Sculptor and Maker of Vases in Chief.
Imhotep was one of very few mortals to be depicted as part of a pharaoh's statue. He was one of only a few commoners ever to be accorded divine status after death. The center of his cult was Memphis. From the First Intermediate Period onward Imhotep was also revered as a poet and philosopher. His sayings were famously referred to in poems: I have heard the words of Imhotep and Hordedef with whose discourses men speak so much.[4]
The location of Imhotep's tomb was lost in antiquity[5] and is still unknown, despite efforts to find it. The general consensus is that it is well hidden at Saqqara. Imhotep's historicity is confirmed by two contemporary inscriptions made during his lifetime on the base or pedestal of one of Djoser's statues (Cairo JE 49889) and also by a graffito on the enclosure wall surrounding Sekhemkhet's unfinished step-pyramid.[6][7] The latter inscription suggests that Imhotep outlived Djoser by few years and went on to serve in the construction of king Sekhemkhet's pyramid which was abandoned due to this ruler's brief reign.[8]

Now you will also notice that he was considered a leader of a cult. And I don't think he was "African looking". I believe he was Egyptian.

Thanks Skip Tracer. You're starting to get the BIG Picture now.:-)

Keep filling your mind with facts and not garbage. You may be the president soon if you do that.:-0

Your very last sentence is totally foolish though.

"I don't think he was "African looking". I believe he was Egyptian. "

Where in the Sam Hades do you think "Egypt" is? Europe?:-0

Here's a map in case your geography teacher didn't point this out to you in school.

Map of Africa

How big is Africa? You might be surprised.:-0 I was.

Arab culture is great! Did you read about Jesse Jackson, Jr.? aka, criminal Jr.

Jesse L. Jackson Jr., the former congressman who resigned last year citing ill health, has signed a plea agreement with federal prosecutors who had been investigating his possible misuse of campaign funds, a person familiar with the case said Friday.

Details of the agreement were unclear, and possible plea discussions were continuing in an investigation of Mr. Jackson’s wife, Sandi, who recently resigned from Chicago’s City Council, the person said. Reports of a plea agreement for Mr. Jackson began to surface earlier in the week in The Chicago Sun-Times.

Mr. Jackson, 47, a longtime United States representative, took a medical leave from his job last June, and never returned. He was treated for bipolar disorder, his office has said. He acknowledged a continuing criminal investigation into his campaign funds when he resigned from Congress in November after winning re-election.

Representatives for Mr. Jackson in Chicago and Washington did not respond to requests for comment on a plea deal, and Mr. Jackson’s father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, brushed aside reporters’ questions on Friday in Chicago.

A number of candidates are competing to succeed Mr. Jackson, who represented the South Side of Chicago and southern suburbs. A primary is set for Feb. 26.

You see the regular news and newspaper don't want you to know just how low minority life has sunk. Don't want to hurt there biggest viewers feelings. Would rather shear a sheep over and over than skin them once.

Look what this big dummy said at the NAACP Awards...HAHAHAHS

JAMIE FOXX: All I can say is I’m so humbled tonight. I was thinking about all the stuff that I was going to say personally about myself, and I was gonna be all about me and how I did it, and how me and me and I and I, and then you watch Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier come out, and you say to yourself it’s really not big of a deal of what you are doing just yet.
I have so many things I wanted to say, but after watching and listening to Harry Belafonte speak, sometimes I feel like somehow I failed a little bit in being caught up in what I do, or maybe that’s the young generation, and that’s what it is. But I guarantee you that I’m going to work a whole lot harder man.
Black people are the most talented people in the world. I, it’s, I can’t explain it. You can’t sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like,“Golly, what in the world?”

Now, I realize this was the NAACP Image Awards.

However, can you imagine the heat a white actor would get if he said at a nationally televised awards ceremony, "White people are the most talented people in the world?"

Probably be the end of his or her career.

I Guess Einstein and Lincoln and George Washington and Chris Columbus, Patton, McCarther, Michael Jackson..... oops, wrong team.
