The Hebrew Israelites: Black people (who came to America in slave ships), Hispanics, and Native Americans are the “lost sheep” of the Bible. White people are the Devil that Bible speaks of…
Although I wouldn’t consider myself a “Hebrew Israelite” I empathize with the overall idea of black people who came to America being “lost” and in need of mental resurrection. I don’t agree with everything they preach but there’s one thing that’s for sure, if any group of people would be considered “the devil” in the flesh, white people would indeed by the best contestant for that title.
Caucasian people in general have been terrified of Black masculinity since, forever. Especially after 400 plus years of slavery and oppression in America, caucasians have become used to docile and cooperative black people. I think that they think we are naturally docile and timid, forgetting all those years of brutality and violence that have created “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome” amongst many black people to this day.
That’s why it seems strange when people like the Black Hebrew Israelites are telling white people to their face that they are the “Devil” that the Bible speaks of. It terrifies them because deep down, beneath their jokes and scoffs, they can tell that the spell of “white supremacy” is wearing off and black people are no longer quivering in fear of their former slave masters.
The Black Hebrew Israelite movement is growing everyday, despite your opinion of them. White America (as well as some black folks) have tried desperately to bring their movement to a halt, claiming that are spewing at hate and lying about the contents of the Bible.
Well, it looks like they haven’t stopped anything, instead they have made the various camps around America refine their knowledge and become stronger. They may have destroyed the “weak”, but they made the “strong”, even stronger.
Personally, I don’t believe in the Bible nor any religion for that matter. Nor do I believe there’s any genetic difference between the black people who came here in slave ships and the people in Africa still today, as many Hebrew Israelite camps claim.
Our differences in my opinion are cultural, and an issue of more “race mixing” here in America. I don’t believe Black Americans should separate ourselves from indigenous Africans, even though I must admit that it does seem we in America aren’t as welcomed over there as we’d like. This relationship will improve in time as we repair the damage from white people’s “divide and conquer” campaigns. Nonetheless, in my opinion we (Black People/Africans) are the “Original People”, we were the first to explore and inhabit the entire planet earth.
I believe the entire human family comes from Black People/Africans. We were here in the beginning and we will still be here in the end. Even though we are technically “one people”, racism (introduced by the Caucasians) has placed the original man on the bottom of the totem pole. This needs to be corrected.
Also, the system of white supremacy has in fact been the enemy of all that is Indigenous, Native, Black, Brown, African, Natural, Peaceful and Righteous. I agree with Hebrew Israelites when they say “Black People (who came to America in slave ships), Hispanics, and Native Americans” should be able to understand how white people can be perceived as the “Devil”. So should other “non-white” people.
I will say this, there are many Hebrew Israelites out there with admirable qualities. Once black people get passed their initial feelings, personal ideology differences and look at what they’re doing on a larger scale then maybe you’ll see the good in what they’re doing. At first many Black people were afraid to support people like Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan. As time went on they began to see the vision and fall in line accordingly. Now Black people all over the world admire those men who were once despised. Even if they don’t follow their religion or program, people still benefit from their knowledge and example.
Keep in mind I’m talking about certain camps, cause there are some camps out there that have not ‘studied to show thyself approved’. There’s some Hebrew Israelite camps that make the movement look pretty bad, but there are others that are indeed the “real deal”. When I say “admirable qualities” I’m talking about absolute scholars and warriors like General Hashar, General Yahanna, and Captain Tazaryach. Those men could teach you a thing or two if you’re willing to listen.
Many people have strong opinions or beliefs in the safety of their own home, while these brothers have the courage to stand on what they know and believe in the public AND on camera for the world to see.
So whether you believe in the Bible, the doctrine of the Black Hebrew Israelites or not you should keep your negativity to yourself or show support.
If you spend more time arguing with them then you do your former slave masters, that makes you a “coon”.
We should learn to unite forces against a common threat instead of focusing our energy on destroying each other.
Remember who the real enemy is, we’ll work everything else out later.
