That’s so strange. I thought white was European but you’re saying anything not traditionally African is white? Even if it comes out of Africa? LolThese people claim Judaism which is an abrahamic religion instead of traditional african religions like Candomble or Umbanda, that's why they are called ''white''.
Abramahic religions are african ? Oh lord, nevermind. You're right I'm wrong, we're done with this lol, have a good day.That’s so strange. I thought white was European but you’re saying anything not traditionally African is white? Even if it comes out of Africa? Lol
I am not sure what you mean by align ourselves with whiteness. And even if its true that Jewish people rule the world I am confused on how that stops us from practicing our faith. Everyone I know is proudly black and did not vote for Donald Trump. What you said sounds like a generalization and possible sterotype. ( I say possible because I cannot speak for everybody.)Why do you all align yourselves with whiteness (e.g, being the original Jewish people)? Which I get. The originals were black..I’ve heard and know the whole schtick..but the ones who rule the world now are white and why did most of you all vote for Donald Trump? The patriarchy within the community reminds me of any other white, male-dominant group.
That is an interesting question. I wouldn't say I liked or disliked it. It just was. A fact of life.Do you like having a different belief from most AA? I grew up with new-age teaching. Not too many AA share my religion. I like thinking differently from most people in general. How is your experience?
Now this is one I've never heard before. But no. It's absolutely a real thing. I'm not sure if you're asking this to troll. Or if you met or talked to other Hebrew Israelites who doesn't believe that is a real thing. And had a genuine question. As far as I know the general belief is that the transatlantic slave trade was in the Bible.
Please be careful with the generalizations.why are you apart of a group that has no respect for you as a Black woman.
I would say a Hebrew Israelite is one that follows the Old Testament. I am not a Bible scholar but I believe it is an ethnic religion. Like you can follow the faith whatever your race but you can't be a Hebrew Israelite. Once again not a Bible scholar.What is a Hebrew Israelite? What are your core beliefs ?
Do you believe white people are not gods creation?
Do people try to convert you to their religion?That is an interesting question. I wouldn't say I liked or disliked it. It just was. A fact of life.
Growing up I definitely knew that my religion was different. And it wasn't as wildly practiced. It was a normal childhood I would say. The most noticeable difference was eating. It was many a days that I just had peanut butter and jelly sandwich because the only thing on the menu was pork. Sometimes I missed out on school events because it would be on Friday night. Which is never fun as a kid. I wouldn't say that the experience was detrimental, but of course I wanted to go.
When I was younger, up until about 10 years old even with all these differences it was okay. Because I lived in a community with others like me. Once I moved that changed. But besides the occasional sadness about not being able to go to school event or being annoyed about lunch. I would say I had a pretty normal upbringing. the only awkward part would be trying to explain to other people what religion I was. it's only been in the past two years that I've seen more Hebrew Israelites. I don't know if it's because more people are coming into the faith. or it's easier to find them on the Internet.
If you don't mind what is New Age teaching?
Lol you’re being sarcastic but that’s okay. Say what you want but Abraham himself was not a white man ie he didn’t have white skin. Even historians will tell you that!Abramahic religions are african ? Oh lord, nevermind. You're right I'm wrong, we're done with this lol, have a good day.
I don't. As far as I know I have never met a black Jew. I imagine the experience would be like meeting anybody else. If that were to happen I would probably avoid talks about religion. Unless we became close friends or were in a relationship.Do you interact with Black Jewish people who are not Israelites - Reform, Conservative or Orthodox - and if so what's that experience been like?
Thank you!Interesting thread, OP! I’m not sure if it’s been asked already but how do you feel about a husband having multiple wives?
I'm not 100% sure what the verse means. To me it looks like it says if you don't follow the law completely you will be cursed? With that said I am a Hebrew Israelite so I follow the Old Testament. And the teachings out of the Old Testament.What do you think about Galatians 3:10-13?
ETA: If I may, suggest you read the entire Book of Hebrews?
