The ability of Black people to move beyond the psychological predisposition that lead us into inferiority complexes begins with spiritual significance. We cannot improve psychologically with the continuing trauma of our oppressors haunting us, with our spiritual enslavement inhibiting us.
And that’s what we still are: slaves. We say it everyday, we acknowledge it, we even consciously encourage it. We are slaves of a White God and a White Jesus, and we willingly subjugate ourselves to these White slavemasters hoping they will clothe us, feed us, help us, save us, and look after us.
Well, let’s look at the scenario from a historical perspective. If God is White then did he end slavery to his people?
It was not in his or his people’s (White people’s) best interest for him to allow them to truthfully free the slaves. Indeed, he himself has not freed any slaves as we – and the rest of the God-fearing world – still call ourselves His slaves.
Basically, if God is White then White people are more benevolent than their God (of course we had to break their hand off to make them that way).
In fact, all the systems: slavery, colonisation, segregation/apartheid, and criminalisation were instituted under the divine consent of a slaveholding, racist White God, if God is White.
Not to mention the current self-destructive path most Black boys/men are heading down: in education, employment, drugs, guns, violence. It is obvious that Black people are not playing in a fair game. (My suggestion is to change the rules.)
However, if we know that the White God is allowing these things to happen in our community regardless of our many prayers to him then it is clear that he is not our friend but is in fact our racist enemy.
Obviously, one could also go into the White man’s handbag and pull out that old gem “Ham’s curse.” We are undeserving gentiles who were saved by the grace of Christ. If this is truth then we return to my first question: did God abolish slavery if Black people are cursed as slaves.
Again, it is neither in his best interests nor the interest of his people. To say because he is benevolent he must have abolished slavery doesn’t work because we are all still his slaves, and to say Christ’s sacrifice annulled slavery doesn’t work because Black chattel slavery began in 1441, over a thousand years after Christ’s sacrifice.
Why would a benevolent White God permit slavery in the first place if he is not a racist. And finally, to say it was man’s doing doesn’t fly because White men used their White God as their excuse for slavery and conquest. If God is White then why didn’t he stop or warn his people not to do it in the first place, or punish them when they did do it.
At the same time, if you look at the world today: Black people suffer in hunger, famine, and poverty. We are terrorised by violence and fearful of our young. Police and vigilantes get away with murdering our people, young and old, male and female. Not to mention the fact that we are despised by virtually every other race.
If God is White, not only has he made slaves of our people and lied to our people but he has definitely cursed our people. We cannot seem to escape the inescapable truth that our people are at the bottom rung on the world ladder.
We pray and pray, perhaps more than any other people, but we remain in the same ghettos; in the same poverty; in the same hunger, famine, and squalor; in the same criminality and threat of violence; in the same slavery, internal and external, as working to pay bills, debts, and taxes is not freedom; and in the same illiteracy and miseducation.
They say insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result and what have we gotten from praying to the White God?
To be clear, I cannot deny that some of our Black brothers and sisters have made it out of poverty and struggle and are middle class. Some are even millionaires, a rare few are even billionaires. What about them? You may ask. Most of them believe in a White God and they made it.
The fact is, they didn’t make it because they prayed for it. Even if they did believe in a White God and Messiah they believed more in themselves and in making smart decisions. Opportunities came their way and they jumped at it.
Again, Black excellence is nothing new. They would not have gotten the opportunities they got without Black excellence. It is their excellence and their wisdom that gave them the opportunities they received that eventually brought them out of the ghetto.
For the most part, however, our Black family is predominantly still in the ghetto, haunted by ruin, poverty, and a racist White slavemaster God who ignores their prayers and punishes their obedience.
However, if like me you consider God and the Messiah to be Black then suddenly the Bible is no longer a rule book to keep slaves in line but God’s message to the Black people of the world and is also a warning.
God said concerning our people: “I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
“They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
“The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of grey hairs.
“I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
“Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this.”
Slavery was a chastisement from God, but from a Black God. And to be sure, Hebrews exist in India: Bene Israel, in Yemen and the Middle East, in North, South, East, and most importantly West Africa (where all the slaves came from).
Basically, until we stop worshipping a White God as our God we will never be free from spiritual subjugation and inferiority complexes. To be truly free we must respect the divinity of the Black man and manifest that divinity whether through our acts or through our Black women.
