God Bless the Hotep Nation

We know black
people came

Before Europeans
ever did

Hotep Jesus is
critical of

slave-owned
history

erasing the
native black stamp

on this land

butchered murdered
their children
the same

No one
bends the knee

The men Untrainable
as Slaves
hunted like animals
defending their culture
their lands

Nobody
Bends the knee

Every
Contract
Broken
by your government
Forced to walk
the road of tears
Forced to live
on barron landS

Nobody
bends the knee

To a people
who have lost
Everything

And yet
through all the pain
the near Extinction
of their race
their pride
still stands strong
Untrainable
as Slaves
they
their women
and the children
are still paying The Price
But nobody cares
to see
Nobody

Bends The Knee

I watched a video clip of Hotep Jesus explaining what he is about and I found him to be riding a wave that is in opposition to victimization mentality
This is good but....

He admits he recently came out of a "Zen" state when he "became" Hotep Jesus
To me this means he was looking for a way to bring attention to the differences of black America
He thought if he could spark an interest he could profit and gain attention
He's a washed out opportunist  
It's a gimmick bandwagon he is bringing  attention to
I don't see him a "real" nor would I call him a part of an indigenous culture that could be celebrated

I miss Russell Means.

He was one of the most wise and amazing influential tribal people I ever got to listen to.

The FIRST peoples were BLACK and came from Africa. After, the other ones came over and killed most of the peaceful First Black Americans.

Are we still trying to ignore and erase them? Is that why the blacks were kicked off the reservation theyíd lived on for hundreds of years by white First Peoples? Racism is alive among First People, just like the bloodthirsty way with which they purged their land originally. They stole it from Black Native Americans!

Itís like with the Uigar of China. Everybody wants them erased. Even YouTube staffers. Shame.

Sorry for missing this. That was rude. I didnít see it but should have checked...

Are we overlooking the indigenous black identities that are a fact?
Or are you suggesting they are a fiction?

Hotep Jesus got called that name as a tease. He then ran with it as a humorous gimmick. But his online and offline philosophies and community are real. So are the ancestors he honors.

Thanks for the gentle hint. 👍



However, I do feel Iím celebrating and remembering an important part of First People culture that has been mostly purged and silenced. (Naturally - being their serious erasure - that came with a rant.)

But I am sorry... I have no chill these days.

I read my posts and think they sound a tad more abrasive on a reread  than I originally remembered them!

I only watched one video clip and what I saw was a gimmick perhaps there is more to him than what I saw

Iíve been looking with all the time I remember to allocate. There was an archeology documentary I saw with the black remains and caves in Oregon. They are all killed off with evidence of genetic blending into the dominant population after conquests.

Furthermore, some survived on down in in very South America, but the two last women from that tribe are probably dead now. I really wish I could watch it again - and post a link here.

Thank you sweet Edible
I saw a video recently and cannot find it either
It was on the tallest African tribe indigenous to the area where no other tribes have infiltrated
Don't know if that would be the correct word but basically they haven't "blended" with those from other parts of Africa
