    .......but the way you worded your title, it seems like what you are truly proud of is not to be a regular black, but to finally have some "other" in you to authenticate who you are. just like the "i got indian in my family" types.
    so, again, i'm lost.

    I hear exactly what you mean LibTheo, especially the bolded, but I do understand the message the OP is trying to get across and it's not anything like that "I'm more than just black; I'm [insert extra nationality here]
    I believe she's trying to get away from the label of 'Black' moreso than anything else, being that, yet and still, the term Hebrew-Israelite refers to a specific group of the African Diaspora and describes somewhat of an origin point.
    I apologize for my rinky-dink explanation if you're already up on game :blush:


    I agree with everyone else concerning the txt, ease up on the bolded caps, Sis



    NaturallyMissJudah: I'm glad I came across this thread. I was just doing a search on this because I didn't find anything on it in the Spirituality board.
    But I do understand why you placed it on the Geneology board; makes sense, I suppose.
    I've seen the same video of the link you posted.
    An ex-coworker gave it to me a few months ago on DVD to keep and it Blew. My. Mind.
    I've watched it over and over, literally writing down every last scripture that was quoted so I can go back and study for myself.

    The very first time I'd heard anything about a "Hebrew Israelite" (hereinafter referred to as "HEBIS"), it was my cousin's BIL who was claiming to be a "HEBIS".
    However, the way she explained it to me sounded like a description of nothing more than a Black cult, and being that I'm Christian, I dismissed it and left it alone.

    The unfortunate thing about certain Blacks who come upon the knowledge of "HEBIS" is that they take this knowledge, join a group or congregation that has wrapped their own funky doctrine around it and turn it into a religion; when in actuality "HEBIS" describes who you are by blood moreso than describing your religious affiliation.

    It's hard to delve into this subject any deeper being that the description of "HEBIS" and this knowledge is based entirely on scripture and this is the Geneaology Board....
    So, I'll just leave it at that.

    Awesome, awesome, awesome video though.
    Definite keeper.

    I understand what MissJudah is trying to say, but in regards to EVERY so called "black or African American," it is possible that a great number of us may not be descendants of the Hebrew Israelites. From what I got from the video, We did not come from Africa. There were already blacks in Africa when the Israelites migrated there. These blacks who were already there were the ones who sold the Israelites into slavery to the "white" man. One thing that is confusing though is that my Bible tells me that the Hebrews descended from the lineage of Shem who was one of Noah's sons. Shem represented the oriental race (asians) I THINK. But Ham who is also one of Noah's sons, had a son named Cush which is where we descended from. It also stated that this lineage settled in egypt, somewhere else, and parts of Africa, but nothing about us being the Hebrew Israelites. So, if we descended from Ham who is the father of the "black" or dark-skined race, then why does this Bible list the descendants of Shem who represents to oriental race to my knowledge, to be the Hebrews? You all may not know the answer, but I just wanted to point this out. I have the Life Application Study Bible in the New Living Translation (maybe that has something to do with it). I mean after watching that video about this, I kept trying to find some way to dismiss it.
    Everything was scriptural, but I can't believe everything I see and hear. I mean the scriptures were so on point, but there's this nagging doubt in the back of my mind. All of us have been told that we're just "black" or African American. The thing is, I don't know about you but I have never been to Africa, I don't know anything about Africa, and it has never been cofirmed that we are from Africa. I mean you can ask "whites" and they will tell you that they are a quarter Irish, 10% German, a little swedish, etc, etc. But when it comes down to us, all we can say is "uh I don't know, I'm just black, African American, but we really have no idea of who we really are, so this Hebrew thing makes sense. But Before all of us start going around claiming that we are the true Hebrew Israelites, it's going to have to take The Almighty to reveal the truth to us. Remember that being American is a WAY OF LIFE, it is not a nationality or who you truly are.

    Huh?! I'm guessing that you mean ethnicity, not nationality. My passport says that my nationality is American, that's who I am. It has nothing to do with my way of life, because American's are very diverse when it comes to lifestyle and I'm ethnically black, which again has nothing to do with being American since we come in all races/ethncities.

    I can't comment on the OP because I couldn't even skim it, it was killing my eyes.

    Yes, I meant ethnicity not nationality,oops! What I am really referring to as far as lifestyle is the lifestyle of freedom. We are not bound by communism, socialism, etc.

    There is some powerful ni****dry at work here...


    I need to reply to all those who disrespectfully laughed and mocked this post... there was no need for that, if you couldn't handle reading a post that is written in all caps then why take the time out of your day to even reply to it? I think the only replies that need to be made to a post like this is "I agree for this reason" or "I disagree for this reason". This is obviously posted by someone who is looking for something more than what she has been given, and for understanding of self. For you people to come and laugh and make jokes... says a lot about who you are... Maybe you are happy with what you know or don't know about your history but some of us aren't. Just have a lil' more respect please.
