Where prejudice exists it always discolors our thoughts -Mark Twain
In the First Melbourne Advanced Clinical Course lecture "Principal Incidents on the Track", L. Ron Hubbard explains the nature of Africans, which is a product of their Whole Track and hostile environment.
Hubbard often rambles in his lectures and thus it is difficult to follow his thoughts precisely. In this lecture, he begins talking about "colored" Africans and how their whole track is different than the "norm" (presumably that of whites). Following on that, he mentions the possibility of processing someone who was Shaka, Zulu king, in a previous incarnation. Did he mean to imply that the processee was black and that thetans follow racial lines when "picking up" (reincarnating in) new bodies? Hubbard isn't clear. It may be just an anecdote to illustrate that the processee would have numerous overts resulting from from his previous, violent life as Shaka and that his or her race was irrelevant. However, the fact that Hubbard makes a distinction between the "normal" whole track and that of black Africans lends weight to the idea that thetans follow racial lines and certainly suggests that Hubbard discriminated between races.

But the earth areas are not tremendously dramatic. Although you'll find some very, very solid stretches in 'em, they're not tremendously dramatic because enormous and overwhelming forces weren't employed until we get back into the Egyptian period. Now we get into BC. You'll find plenty to entertain you back to BC and plenty to take apart but now you start running into trouble, because the Egyptian period is space opera . And this doesn't make any sense at all because everybody knows it's a religious period. And we know the Egyptians didn't have any ray guns — obviously. There's nothing going on on Earth except some priests walking around, saying "Amen", which the Christians still say. And uh, the uh… you get some of the weirdest things. Real heavy phenomena of one kind or another, real heavy, massy things and stuff — through such a period 'cause it just doesn't make sense to anybody.
Earth at that time was under attack between two forces: 4th Invaders, 5th Invaders is the easy way to call 'em. One was the Space Command, the other was the Martian Command. The Martian Command at the end of that period was totally wiped out and immobilized by the Space Command — wiped out of the skies you might say. Wasn't really flattened totally although this action took place in outer space, uh, not outer space, in this solar system space — didn't take place until something in the neighborhood of about eleven hundred and thirty-five to about twelve hundred and thirty-something — in that period. That was the end. Mars never afterwards got a ship off; never after got anything done; never afterwards was fluid and was left totally with thought control against Earth. Meantime the Space Command, with total control out in space amongst the asteroids, the moon, and the rest of this sort of stuff, had by that time, you see, just almost totally caved-in and tamed down. They sort of out-created each other and they're still sitting in a ridge , you got the idea?
But this goes back for its hottest action, back into the Egyptian period. And there's where you want to look for the basis of this — don't keep running this late, let's… let's look at it early. Always look at 'em at the earliest moment if you can possibly find it.
Well, what about this Egyptian period? Well, it has several contests. The one which registers hardest on the e-meter is the "Brothers of the Snake". Twelve hundred and sixteen BC. And that one just falls off the pin. An effort and motion was made throughout the Near East, India, and some of Europe to make a total religious conquest. Now things were pretty badly knocked apart by the horseman with the sword back about fifteen hundred BC. And this was a tail-end effort to kind of put it back together again. Right after this we get the Trojan Wars, Phoenicia, and so forth, to show you about where this sits in… in time. But it's an obscured period of history. And the reason it's so obscured — "not ised " — is it's so violent. Everybody says it's a totally blank period of history from fifteen hundred to about twelve hundred BC. It's a blank period of history. Well, the devil it is. It's not blank on somebody's case but it's sure not-ised [chuckle]. Now you'll find some interesting things concerning this. You'll find some people in Scientology were pulled in on the side of the Brothers of the Snake. Most of the people in Scientology were in the revolutionary camp. But chopping each other up something gorgeously. Now you got your create/counter-create and it's all complete with lord knows what. But it's an important period and it shows up on almost any case.
And actually is the, well, everybody of course more or less went through the… the, uh, Egyptian, Chaldean, Babylonian… Let me be very factual. India… Here's the progress of the thetans in general: India, earliest times — uh, into the Middle East, uh, Chaldea, into Babylon, into Egypt, Achaea, Greece, Rome, Europe, New World and then all over the place. That is usually the course of most of the thetans that you run across. But you take some colored fellow and you'll find him beating a slightly different track. And you'll find in Africans a fantastic amount of, uh, heavy space opera and so on, going on, that is off this beat, and which makes the colored, uh, African, uh, very, very, uh, interesting to process because he doesn't know why he goes through all these dances and what's happened to him and all of this sort of thing and why he feels so barbarous or something. He hasn't any clue about this. Now he's… he's… uh, uh, as capable of as much civilization as you are. He actually got pushed around a lot harder because the environment itself is a ferocious environment or was for many, many centuries… because of animals and things like that, which had its own dynamite, you know what I'm saying? So he's running a slightly different track but it's a track which obeys exactly the same rules and you'll just have to look a little bit harder for it. And one day you'll be processing some chap and you'll find yourself processing Chaka or Kataba or somebody of this character and man, you have enough overts on him to last him for a long time. He's just killing tribes off in all directions. [chuckle] And uh, uh… the military leader who was educated by the Europeans, went back and formed up the regiments of, uh, Zulu and so forth and overwhelmed the rest of the race and so on. That's rather late, you get earlier periods of similar violence. You find all kinds of civilizations.
Hubbard's "Emu" and "Lemur" are undoubtedly references to the lost continent(s) of Mu and Lemuria (they may be one and the same), located in the Indian or Pacific Ocean. Like Atlantis, some of their mythologies include an extraterrestrial connection, which dovetails nicely with Hubbard's own whole track history.
Now similarly there's some kind of a track here in Australia that begins with a lost continent. And, uh, this continent's apparently the source continent of a lot of Asian civilization. And, uh, whatever was here is gone but I would say that you might look into that period with somebody who is apparently very fascinated with Australia. idea, because possibly this goes back to something they don't quite know where they are, they're not in Atlanta , because you'll find Atlanta on the track too, which I'll get to in a minute, but they're back in a contemporary period to Atlanta . And, uh, they call this by several different names, uh, I've heard it called Emu , Lemur , and so forth. So… but we're back now, we're back and behind what anybody knows of as written history.
