Another name for the White Man, according to the teachings of Elijah Muhammad. According to Mr. Muhammad, the devil was grafted from the Original Man, which consists of the black, brown, red and yellow races, by the evil scientist Yacub on the island of Patmos. Strictly speaking the devil is not a man but mankind because he is kind of like man but in fact a devil. Allegorically, he has made the earth a hell for the Black man, but he is right at home here.
