Jews and Gentiles Chapter 20 The True Israelites Revealed
[This chapter is a compilation by John R. Moore, Rudolphf R. Windsor and other researchers. It offers compelling arguments pertaining to the “true” Identity of the Israelites. Although I can see their relevance in light of Old Testament scripture, I urge you to continue and read my conclusion and “remedy” in the final chapter called “The Purpose and Plan of the Good News.”]
By John R. Moore
According to Deuteronomy 29:1, Ancient Israel made a covenant with The Most High to follow His laws, judgments, statutes and commandments (Exodus 19:5,8). The Creator gave the assurance that He would make Israel a mighty and righteous nation above all other nations on Earth, (Exodus 19:5 – Deuteronomy 28:13), but He also warned the Hebrews that if they did not honor the covenant, He would afflict them with a number of curses. Israel however broke the agreement and has been suffering from these punishments as a result.
Understanding Biblical prophecy and black history can set the record straight, where certain myths can be corrected in terms of showing that black people were never cursed because of their black skin as promoted by the slave masters and other supremacists, neither were they a genetically inferior race, nor the product of Eve mating with Satan.
HOSEA 4:6: – MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, THAT THOU SHALT BE NO PRIEST TO ME: SEEING THOU HAST FORGOTTEN THE LAW OF THY GOD, I WILL ALSO FORGET THY CHILDREN.
The curses placed on Israel will help to identify who the real Hebrew Israelites are.
DANIEL 9:11 – YEA, ALL ISRAEL HAVE TRANSGRESSED THY LAW, EVEN BY DEPARTING, THAT THEY MIGHT NOT OBEY THY VOICE; THEREFORE THE CURSE IS POURED UPON US, AND THE OATH THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES THE SERVANT OF GOD, BECAUSE WE HAVE SINNED AGAINST HIM.
Following is a preview of some of those curses mentioned.
• THE TRANS -ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE. (Deut 28:68)
• HIGH PRISON POPULATION. (Isaiah 42:22)
• A SICK AND DISEASED STRICKEN PEOPLE. (Deut 28: 59-61)
• SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS BECAUSE OF WHAT IS SEEN. (Deut 28:28,34)
• CHILDREN TAKEN AWAY AND GIVEN TO OTHER PEOPLE. (Deut 28:32)
• EVERY RACIAL GROUP RUNNING SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES IN BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS. (Deut 28:43-44)
• SCATTERED THROUGHOUT ALL NATIONS. (Deut 28:25, 64 – Luke 21:24)
• NOT BEING ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THEIR ENEMIES. (Leviticus 26:37-38. Deut 28:25)
• HAVING NO POWER, ALWAYS ROBBED AND SPOILED. (Deut 28:29)
• CALLED RACIST NAMES INSTEAD OF REFERRED TO BY THEIR TRUE IDENTITY. (Deut 28:37)
• YOUNG MEN STANDING ON STREET CORNERS GOING WILD. (Isaiah 51:20)
• HAVING MANY PLACES OF WORSHIP ON EVERY STREET CORNER. (Ezekiel 16:24-25)
• FEARFUL FOR LIFE WITHOUT ASSURANCE OF LIFE. Deut 28:64-66)
• LYNCHING AND BEING BURNED ALIVE BY THE ENEMY.(Deut 28:22)
• TEENAGE GANGS RUNNING BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS, MANY CORRUPT ELECTED OFFICIALS AND LEADERS. (Isaiah 3:12)
The majority of Biblical readers including the black population, who were led to believe that all of their misfortunes were as a result of being an inferior race, have never recognized or understood these curses. This lie caused many black people to become ashamed of their history and ancestry, thereby severing their direct link to the Most High. All these curses were unleashed on the children of Israel and not on mankind in general, since it was with Israel’s forefathers that the covenant was made. Leviticus 26:14-26 outlines the curses that would be heaped upon Israel because of its disobedience.
LEV 26:14-15 – BUT IF YE WILL NOT HEARKEN UNTO ME, AND WILL NOT DO ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS; AND IF YE SHALL DESPISE MY STATUTES, OR IF YOUR SOUL ABHOR MY JUDGMENTS, SO THAT YE WILL NOT DO ALL MY COMMANDMENTS, BUT THAT YE BREAK MY COVENANT:
(16) – I ALSO WILL DO THIS UNTO YOU; I WILL EVEN APPOINT OVER YOU TERROR, CONSUMPTION, AND THE BURNING AGUE, THAT SHALL CONSUME THE EYES, AND CAUSE SORROW OF HEART: AND YE SHALL SOW YOUR SEED IN VAIN, FOR YOUR ENEMIES SHALL EAT IT.
(17) – AND I WILL SET MY FACE AGAINST YOU, AND YE SHALL BE SLAIN BEFORE YOUR ENEMIES: THEY THAT HATE YOU SHALL REIGN OVER YOU; AND YE SHALL FLEE WHEN NONE PURSUETH YOU.
Black people have been slaughtered by their enemies for centuries. An estimate shows that over one hundred million black men, women and children perished during the middle passage on their way to the Western Hemisphere. In fact, so many dead and dying black Hebrews were thrown overboard that sharks often followed the slave ships. The survivors who arrived in the Americas had to dodge being burnt alive, lynched, tortured, murdered, mutilated and dehumanized -activities that continued long after slavery was over.
About 30 % of America’s founding fathers owned over 1,300 slaves, and slaves were also owned by 11 of 16 United States presidents. As pointed out in the scriptures, those which hate you shall rule over you was clearly seen in those who formed the government, as they could not contain their intense hatred of the “Negro.”
Even the Declaration of Independence did not address the slave trade, slavery, or the plantation system, so the assurance that “all men are created equal” did not apply to the slaves.
LEV 26:36 – AND UPON THEM THAT ARE LEFT ALIVE OF YOU I WILL SEND A FAINTNESS INTO THEIR HEARTS IN THE LANDS OF THEIR ENEMIES; AND THE SOUND OF A SHAKEN LEAF SHALL CHASE THEM; AND THEY SHALL FLEE, AS FLEEING FROM A SWORD; AND THEY SHALL FALL WHEN NONE PURSUETH.
(37) – AND THEY SHALL FALL ONE UPON ANOTHER, AS IT WERE BEFORE A SWORD, WHEN NONE PURSUETH: AND YE SHALL HAVE NO POWER TO STAND BEFORE YOUR ENEMIES.
Black people had no power to stand before their enemies who defeated them regularly. These included the African, Arab and European slave-catchers, as well as the slave masters in the Americas. The Bible documents that Israel was defeated by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Medo-Persians, Babylonians, Greeks and Romans, while other historical sources reveal further that Israel was defeated by more enemies who often had the upper hand. This is another characteristic of the Hebrew Israelite.
This is a depiction of the Jews during the Babylonian period clearly showing the African racial origins who many believe originated out of Egypt and were followers of the Akhenaton religion. The original inhabitants of Israel, originally called Fenkhu by the original black owners, were Black Canaanites and Black Egyptians. These represent the blacks of Southern Egypt and Sudan (Nubia-Kush) who look racially identical to Israel’s ancient black populations.
Black people became public enemy number one in the eyes of every hate group which included such terrorist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan, the skinheads, the Neo-Nazis and other hate groups. In fact, the lynching of Black Americans dramatically increased after the establishment of the Ku Klux Klan in 1867, which was an underground terrorist group whose main purpose was to fight against the civil rights movement that gave freedom to the slaves, and to maintain white supremacy which seemed under threat following their defeat in the Civil War. The Klan called the Jews the offspring of Satan; blacks and other racial minorities an inferior group; and white Anglo-Saxons the true Israelites.
Evidently the European Jews are not being referred to in these verses since they were able to stand up and defeat their enemies, especially throughout every military engagement encountered since 1948, and were also successful in keeping possession of Israeli land for more than fifty years. The Jews were also successful at tracking down and executing Nazi war criminals that had a role in their Holocaust.
Blacks, in spite of everything, still have no power to stand up with any measure of success against the racist police force who would not hesitate to shoot, kill or even frame innocent black people – who continue to run from their enemies even when not being pursued.
LEV 26:38 – AND YE SHALL PERISH AMONG THE HEATHEN, AND THE LAND OF YOUR ENEMIES SHALL EAT YOU UP.
The ancient homeland of Israel was given to the Hebrew Israelites by the Most High who forewarned their exile if they refused to keep the covenant made with Him. The Israelites broke that promise and as a result were held captive, removed from their ancestral homeland, and forced to settle in the lands of their enemies who would force them to live under oppressive conditions. This is another trait that distinguishes Israel from other groups. So those who brought the slaves chained and shackled as human cargo into the new lands, were certainly the enemies of the oppressed people.
(40) – IF THEY SHALL CONFESS THEIR INIQUITY SINS, AND THE INIQUITY OF THEIR FATHERS, WITH THEIR TRESPASS WHICH THEY TRESPASSED AGAINST ME, AND THAT ALSO THEY HAVE WALKED CONTRARY UNTO ME;
(41) – AND THAT I ALSO HAVE WALKED CONTRARY UNTO THEM, AND HAVE BROUGHT THEM INTO THE LAND OF THEIR ENEMIES; IF THEN THEIR UNCIRCUMCISED HEARTS BE HUMBLED AND THEY THEN ACCEPT OF THE PUNISHMENT OF THEIR SINS:
(42) – THEN WILL I REMEMBER MY COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM; AND I WILL REMEMBER THE LAND.
Since black people suffer from an identity crisis (Isaiah 1:3), they are not aware of their true identity as Israelites, the special relationship they share with God, or what sins they have committed against God. For this reason they are unable to confess these sins, while continuing to go against God’s laws. Black Israelites in general do not understand why so much misfortune is befalling them, and this makes it difficult to comprehend the severity of the punishments confronting them.
LEV 26: 44 – AND YET FOR ALL THAT, WHEN THEY BE IN THE LAND OF THEIR ENEMIES, I WILL NOT CAST THEM AWAY, NEITHER WILL I ABHOR THEM, TO DESTROY THEM UTTERLY, AND TO BREAK MY COVENANT WITH THEM: FOR I AM THE LORD THEIR GOD.
(45) – BUT I WILL FOR THEIR SAKES REMEMBER THE COVENANT OF THEIR ANCESTORS, WHOM I BROUGHT FORTH OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT IN THE SIGHT OF THE HEATHEN, THAT I MIGHT BE THEIR GOD: I AM THE LORD.
These verses not only show that God never cast away Israel, but indicate that a physical Israel must be on earth so that the covenant made to their ancestors can be fulfilled. This may be one of the reasons that black people have survived centuries of chattel slavery, lynching and the worst treatment ever hurled at any race. This person was hung and burnt. God made a promise that Israel would undergo suffering in the land of their enemies, but He would not destroy them utterly.
Take note of the fact that the Bible keeps citing the “land of Israel’s enemies” as the place where Israel will reside.
DEUT. 28:37 – AND THOU SHALT BECOME AN ASTONISHMENT, A PROVERB, AND A BYWORD, AMONG ALL NATIONS WHITHER THE LORD SHALL LEAD THEE.
A proverb and byword are labels of general rebuke that includes a characterization in the form of taunting insults and offensive names. These included terms like Nigger, Negro, Coon, Blackey, Spade, Monkey, African American, Blacks, etc., all of which act as substitutes that conceal Israel’s true identity.
God said Israel will become an object of scorn and disdain among all nations wherever they go. Historians frequently reported the categorization of the black slave as a subhuman species with an insatiable sexual appetite, who lacked intelligence, character, and feelings.
Additionally, the enactment of harsh laws in the Supreme Court helped to perpetuate the oppression of black people and reinforced theories pertaining to black inferiority.
Even the distinguished Islamic historian Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406) wrote: “The Negro nations are as a rule submissive to slaver, because they have attributes that are quite similar to dumb animals.” Black slaves as a rule were castrated by Islamic traders “based on the assumption that they had an ungovernable sexual appetite.”
Similarly, the term Africa does not represent a country, race, nationality, tribe or language, but acts also as a substitute for the second largest land mass in the world, – a continent with 53 countries which incorporates diverse people, languages and cultures. There is not a country on the planet named Africa, so in reality, no group of people should technically be referred to as African when speaking of national origin. The Ancient Egyptians, Nubians, Hebrews and other people who are indigenous to that continent never referred to a place called Africa, because that title is of Latin/Roman origin. [In fact, the term “Middle East” was coined by World War II correspondents. Israel and the entire “Middle East” is in fact and was considered to be part of the continent of Africa. For historical proof refer to: The Original African Heritage Study Bible, ed. Cain Hope Felder, Nashville: James C. Winston, 1993. p. 106.]
As a result, Africa has become synonymous with black skinned people because the majority of the people originating from that continent are black, and the majority of black people in the world have some kind of ancestral ties to that continent.
DEUT:28:15 – BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF THOU WILT NOT HEARKEN UNTO THE VOICE OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY; THAT ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND OVERTAKE THEE:
(16) – CURSED SHALT THOU BE IN THE CITY, AND CURSED SHALT THOU BE IN THE FIELD.
These verses indicate that Israel will not be able to avoid these curses that will plague them wherever they settle.
During chattel slavery the living conditions in the fields (plantations) were more suited for animals, but slaves had to live under these extremely dehumanizing conditions which robbed them of their labor, security and lives.
“More than a third of the black population in cities like Boston lived in blind alleys, cellars and lofts. Their poor, unsanitary living conditions caused widespread health problems and shortened their life spans.” [“Pig Town” in Baltimore is another example.] This is according to Leonard P. Curry, author of The Free Black in Urban America, 1800-1850. While representing only 12% of the U.S. population, Black Americans make up about 40% of the homeless population.
(19) – CURSED SHALT THOU BE WHEN THOU COMEST IN, AND CURSED SHALT THOU BE WHEN THOU GOEST OUT.
(20) – THE LORD SHALL SEND UPON THEE CURSING, VEXATION, AND REBUKE, IN ALL THAT THOU SETTEST THINE HAND UNTO FOR TO DO, UNTIL THOU BE DESTROYED, AND UNTIL THOU PERISH QUICKLY; BECAUSE OF THE WICKEDNESS OF THY DOINGS, WHEREBY THOU HAST FORSAKEN ME.
Every attempt by black people (in the Caribbean, the Americas, the United Kingdom) to improve their living conditions through the political, educational and economic systems has been a failure, but at the same time other ethnic, racial groups have been successful in leading their people to an acceptable standard of living using those same systems. It is interesting to note that Black Americans have been in the United States longer than most of the other ethnic groups, except the Native American Indian, but have still fallen behind each group in virtually every level of society.
On the other hand, the Jews who proclaim to have descended from the Israelites were successful at basically everything they set out to accomplish. For example, one of their goals was to own the land of Israel which they successfully did, and they were also able to successfully set their hand against their enemies. But according to the word of God, Israel will be cursed at everything they set out to do, so this verse could not be referring to those who currently call themselves Jews, but to Ancient Israel and their descendants who are referred to as Black people, African Americans and a myriad of other epithets (bywords). [I personally believe the current black (Hebrew) condition is a fulfillment of Old Testament scripture and also a direct fulfillment of prophecy as was prophesied by Jesus in the New Testament regarding the Gentiles. I will discuss this further in the Epilogue.]
(22) – THE LORD SHALL SMITE THEE WITH A CONSUMPTION, AND WITH A FEVER, AND WITH AN INFLAMMATION, AND WITH AN EXTREME BURNING, AND WITH THE SWORD, AND WITH BLASTING, AND WITH MILDEW; AND THEY SHALL PURSUE THEE UNTIL THOU PERISH.
One of the worst episodes in the slave’s life was during the dreaded Middle Passage journey from West Africa to the Americas, where the conditions on the slave ships were horrifying, with between 200 and 400 captives crammed into the bottom of the ships.
On arriving, public burnings or Negro Barbecues were carried out when white mobs set out to burn Black Americans alive or burn their dead bodies after a lynching. This helped to strengthen the conviction that blacks were less than human or on the same level as the wild beasts of the earth. However, the “civilized” white man behaved more like the barbaric animal, transforming the lynching, mutilation and burning of black people into an entertainment and spectator sport. Newspapers even carried headlines like “Coloured Man Roasted Alive” while explaining in graphic detail, the slow, systematic, agonizing death of the helpless victim (thus the origin of the term, “picnic”). Crowds, including women and children, traveled for miles to witness this blood sport, with school administrators delaying classes to allow both male and female students to return from viewing these horrendous acts of brutality. This is an image of Will Brown, accused and arrested for allegedly raping a white woman before being seized by a white mob who beat him unconscious then filled him with over 1,000 bullets prior to burning his body in 1919.
ZEC: 11:5 – WHOSE POSSESSORS SLAY THEM, AND HOLD THEMSELVES NOT GUILTY: AND THEY THAT SELL THEM SAY, BLESSED BE THE LORD; FOR I AM RICH: AND THEIR OWN SHEPHERDS PITY THEM NOT.
In a book called “Two Nations, Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal” by Professor Andrew Hacker, he writes;
“Most whites will protest that they bear neither responsibility nor blame for the conditions blacks face. Neither they nor their forbearers ever owned slaves nor can they see themselves as having held anyone back or down. Today the younger generations of whites resent being held morally or financially responsible for the racial sins of their ancestors, even though as whites, they still enjoy the inherited advantages and privileges of slavery.”
The lynching of Black people was a brutal combination of racism and sadism used by whites to terrorize blacks in order to safeguard white supremacy. The accepted method used for lynching was hanging, shooting or both, but sometimes more gruesome methods of physical torture were employed like burning at the stake, maiming, dismemberment and castration.
From 1880-1930, more than 3500 Blacks were lynched or executed, but no one has ever been convicted of any of these horrendous crimes. Their white murderers were allowed to walk free without any form of punishment, though it is very unlikely that a white person would have received the death penalty for killing a black person. They held themselves not guilty.
Black Israel’s destruction and ruin by the weapons of their enemies is mentioned in verse 22.
DEUT 28:63……SO THE LORD WILL REJOICE OVER YOU TO DESTROY YOU, AND TO BRING YOU TO NOUGHT; AND YE SHALL BE PLUCKED FROM OFF THE LAND WHITHER THOU GOEST TO POSSESS IT.
(64) – AND THE LORD SHALL SCATTER THEE AMONG ALL PEOPLE, FROM THE ONE END OF THE EARTH EVEN UNTO THE OTHER; AND THERE THOU SHALT SERVE OTHER GODS, WHICH NEITHER THOU NOR THY FATHERS HAVE KNOWN, EVEN WOOD AND STONE.
LEV 26:33 – AND I WILL SCATTER YOU AMONG THE HEATHEN, AND WILL DRAW OUT A SWORD AFTER YOU. : AND YOUR LAND SHALL BE DESOLATE, AND YOUR CITIES WASTE. [Before the current Israeli occupation, Israel lay desolate for many, many years.] Read the article by an Arab-American critic:
THE NATURE OF THE “BLACK” CURSE [Let it be known that the author/commentator does not believe there is an actual “black” curse. This is not supported by scripture. This term should be, “The Nature of the ‘Hebraic’ curse,” or the “Curse of the Law.”]
The Israelites – Black people, entered into a covenant with The Most High, (Deuteronomy 29:1). They agreed to keep this covenant by following the laws, statutes, judgments, and commandments of The Most High (Exodus 19:5,8). The Creator’s part of the covenant was to make Israel a mighty, righteous nation, which would be above all nations on the face of the Earth, (Exodus 19:5 – Deuteronomy 28:13), but because the Israelites failed to keep their end of the deal, they were put under curses or punishments by The Most High
•THE TRANS -ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE – BROUGHT INTO SLAVERY ON SHIPS (Deut 28:68)

•HIGH PRISON POPULATION (Isaiah 42:22)
But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. The Lord has magnified his law and made it truly glorious. Through it he had planned to show the world that he is righteous. But what a sight his people are—these who were to demonstrate to all the world the glory of his law; for they are robbed, enslaved, imprisoned, trapped, fair game for all, with no one to protect them.
•A SICK AND DISEASED STRICKEN PEOPLE (Deut 28: 59-61)
then the Lord will bring on you and on your descendants extraordinary plagues, severe and lasting, and diseases, trying and prolonged. He will bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt, so dreaded by you, and they will cling to you. Every sickness, too, and every pestilence not mentioned in this book of the Law, the Lord will put upon you until you are destroyed. You shall remain few in number, you who were as the stars of heaven for multitude, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God.
•SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS BECAUSE OF WHAT IS SEEN (Deut 28:28,34)
The Lord will smite you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind; so you shall be driven mad by the sight which your eyes shall see.

Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, while your eyes look on and fail with longing for them all the day; and it shall not be in the power of your hand to prevent it.
•EVERY RACIAL GROUP WILL COME INTO BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS AND RUN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES (Deut 28:43-44)
The sojourner who is among you shall mount above you higher and higher; and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Foreigners living among you shall become richer and richer while you become poorer and poorer. They shall lend to you, not you to them! They shall be the head and you shall be the tail!
•SCATTERED BY SLAVERY INTO ALL NATIONS (Deut 28:25, 64 – Luke 21:24)
The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them, and you shall be a horrible spectacle to all the kingdoms of the earth. And the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other; and there you shall serve other gods, of wood and stone, which neither you nor you fathers have known. …they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led captive among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
•NOT BEING ABLE TO STAND AGAINST ENEMIES (Leviticus 26:37-38, Deut 28:25)
They shall stumble over one another, as if to escape a sword, though none pursues; and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them…
•HAVING NO POWER, ALWAYS ROBBED AND SPOILED (Deut 28:29)

Your sons have fainted (your sons are lying helpless), they lie at the head of every street like an antelope in a net; they are full of the wrath of the Lord, the rebuke of your God.
•HAVING MANY PLACES OF WORSHIP ON EVERY CITY STREET CORNER (Ezekiel 16:24-25)
you have built vaulted chambers for yourself in every square and at the head of every prominent street, prostituting your beauty and offering your body to any passer-by and multiplying your harlotry.
•FEARFUL FOR LIFE WITHOUT ASSURANCE OF LIFE (Deut 28:64-66)
And the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other; and there you shall serve other gods, of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known. And among these nations you shall find no ease, and there shall be no rest for the sole of your foot; but the Lord will give you there a trembling heart, and failing eyes, and a languishing soul; your life shall hang in doubt before you; night and day you shall be in dread, and have no assurance of your life.
•LYNCHING AND BEING BURNED ALIVE BY THE ENEMY, (Deut 28:22)
The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with lasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

As for my people, children are their oppressors (their ruling tyrants are children), and women rule over them. My people, your leaders are misleaders; they confuse the course of your paths.
[Some black scholars believe that blacks throughout the world and more specifically many of those who came to America during the slave trade are in fact the descendants of the original Hebrews. There appears to be much evidence to this assertion. Evidence can be found both scientifically through archeological findings as well as through ancient manuscripts such as the Bible. Although most of these scholars provide proof to support their premise of the African American being among the true Israelites and as a result, baring the curses of the Law, unfortunately, they do not provide much hope for deliverance and restoration to the Children of God. Please read on to the Author’s Conclusion.]
After the black man had been torn away from the umbilical cord of mother Africa, brought to America, and divested of his true history, culture, and language, some of the black leaders directed and steered the black masses toward the road of assimilation and extreme integration in every hostile aspect of American life, rather than directing the black people to construct their own thriving communities and businesses. The psychological reaction to this kind of leadership meant uniting with the white race in politics, businesses, and social entertainment, but black people had no bargaining power. “The integration mania grew in such great proportions that black people, unaware of their glorious history, believed that to be black or dark-skinned meant to be inferior.
During the Reconstruction Period and thereafter, there was no powerful black middle class. The author William Foster said that if there had been, this middle class would have been able to successfully challenge the opposition of the racists during that period. Likewise, today there is no powerful black middle class that is indigenous to the black communities throughout America. I am not saying that a black middle class doesn’t exist. What I am saying is that the majority of this black middle class drives their strength and status from the mainstream of white society rather than from black society. If this black middle class was fired from their jobs in white society, they would lose their middle-class status and be forced to join the ranks of the unemployed and the poor. However, if this black middle class owned and operated their own institutions and businesses in the black community, such as banks, insurance companies, supermarkets, clothing stores, hospitals, law offices, and so forth, they would become a powerful, indigenous black middle class, gaining their strength and status from the support of the black community.
The black people, after 1875, put too much trust in the system and the Republican party. They should have placed their trust in the Creator God and in their own efforts. Today, we are repeating the same mistake, placing too much trust in the government. It is not what the government can do for us; it is what we can do for ourselves that is important. Excessive government handouts stifle human incentives. Many people are sitting around waiting for a check instead of building the black community. There is no other nationality that will clean up and build the black community; it must be accomplished by the black people.
Rudolphf R. Windsor the author of “The Valley The Dry Bones,” offers several solutions as to how to make a change in black America:
1. The black community must be organized on a stronger cultural, familial, economic, and educational level.
2. The black community must organize in order to reduce black-on-black crime and syndicate-organized crime. The senior citizen the young, males, females, and businesses must be protected. What hurts one hurts all, in the short or long run. It is a fact that police cannot do the job by themselves.
3. When the Democratic and Republican parties do not serve our interest, the black community must support a third-party candidate.
4. Blacks must form political coalitions with other ethnic groups whenever it is beneficial to their interest.
5. The black community must organize to make it crystal clear to the politicians (black or white) that they cannot work against the interest of the people.
6. Blacks must vote out those politicians who are not committed to the people; they must be dedicated voters, or they shall lose the right to vote.
7. The black community cannot afford to sit back in their rocking chairs and react only when a crisis develops; they must anticipate a crisis and move to confront it before it gets out of control. When black people refuse to vote, the system will conclude that they don’t count; then they will not fear or consider us. As a result, they will perpetrate anything against blacks and deliberately neglect to do the right thing for them. If blacks don’t unite and do this task, then they are doomed to hell and shall have no one to blame but themselves.
Many ethnic groups in America have utilized their history and culture as the foundation to accomplish racial pride and unity, and black people should learn to do the same. For example, the Chinese control their own communities (Chinatowns) with their cultural-historical traits: Chinese architecture, Chinese art, Chinese writing, Chinese food, Chinese dances, Chinese costumes, Chinese language, and Chinese holidays. This Chinese culture transmits racial pride to their people and plays a great part in uniting them to accomplish their goals. Moreover, black culture can accomplish the same thing for black people.
Germans are from Germany, Chinese from China, Egyptians from Egypt, Mexicans from Mexico, and black Americans from where? Black Americans are the only ethnic group that is not called by its true national name. The Lord God of Heaven and Earth has permitted the enemies of the African Judean to take away our true nationality. Do we have any biblical proof to this? (Psalm 83:4-5) They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel will be no more in remembrance.” The conspiracy to cut blacks off from being a nation began in ancient times and continued unto the present day (Exodus 1:8-22). Remember that the loss of nationality is a curse, but the darkness and blindness that has fallen on the Israelites (Black Americans) is only for a “measure” of time, a limited time, and in the “latter days” (which is now) shall enlightenment and deliverance come to the Israelites (Leviticus 26:44, 45; Jeremiah 30: 1-11; Romans 11:25-26; and Daniel 12:1-4). What does the Creator mean when He says “thou shall serve other gods?” The Creator commanded us not to copy the ways of other nations (Learn not the ways of the heathens for the way of the heathens are in vain. Jeremiah 10:1).
It is written that when all of these blessing and curses have come upon blacks and if they shall remember these curses (sorrows) among the nations where the Lord has scattered them and shall return unto the Lord and obey his laws, then the Lord will remove the curses and return them to their homeland, Israel. Then he will bless them above their great ancestors, and they shall be the head and not the tail, and he will put these curses upon their enemies (Deuteronomy 30:1-7, 28:13).
