A "Black" Man, A Moor, John Hanson Was the First President of the United States! 1781-1782
Is this true?


The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation.
This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land).

Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress.

i guess he does look like what today would be considered a 'black' man.

back then he was probably classified as a free person of color.

not so suprising, as the only First Lady of the Confederacy was also a 'free person of color'.

anywho...what difference does it make as those classifications no longer exist and we all get along?

he was known as a moor...
this is why i make distinction between the term black and moor...

moors have a political status and a national status...many nations have treaties with MOORS...there are no treaties with "blacks"

many moors had seats in government up until the the beginning of the 1800's

no, he wasn't the first US president. he was a leader before the current government came into being. the government under the Articles of Confederation is different than the government under the US Constitution.

before the Articles and before the British expanded their colonies west of the Appalachians, as a result of the French and Indian war, America was governed as an extension of France.

i think what is most interesting is the idea that the part of America now known as the US existed as a place complete with government before 1776.

he was just one American leader before the current Government. and he wasn't really the first...he was like the 10th or something.

OP is a fucking idiot.



John Hanson (d. c. 1860) was an African American associated with the American Colonization Society, which sought to relocate black Americans in Liberia. In Liberia, he served as a senator from Grand Bassa County.

Senator Hanson has recently been confused BY MORANS with an earlier John Hanson, a white politician from Maryland who served as President of the Continental Congress during the American Revolution. According to this urban myth, John Hanson of Maryland was actually black, and also the first President of the United States. Internet sites promoting the hoax use the photograph of Senator John Hanson of Liberia to support the claim, even though photography had not yet been invented when the earlier John Hanson was living.[2][3]

i'm looking at his portrait and he doesn't look at all English.

is that some kind of joke?

John Hanson is quite clearly what anthropologists would call a tri-racial isolate and he was probably classified as a free person of color.

in his own day he may have been considered one thing, but at present he would certainly be called 'black'...black like colin powell.

The Continental Congress was not the United States of America.

by your silly logic the first president should have been Juan Ponce de Leon, governor of Cuber who discovered Florida for the Spanish.

Or maybe some Atlantis dude before the flood.

John Hanson was a white man of English descent.

Charlotte of Mecklenburg Strelitz was a white woman who was unattractive. She had no black ancestry. She was just ugly. She looked like the current Princess Royal Anne.

in my 7th grade history class we were taught that the government under the Articles of Confederation was 'overthrown' in favor of the government of under the Constitution.

not taking a position on whether that is true or not, concerning a coup, it is clear that they are two different governments and John Hanson can never be considered the first President of an entirely different system.

She got pissed and told him never to correct her again in class, but wait until after. He stood up and said the truth should not be hidden... good for him! John Hanson was A) WHITE and B) NOT the first President...
