Why Religion isn’t for Black People

Why are black people in america so religious? When has religion really worked for African Americans? If you really believe that you and your slave master can share the same God, your living in the fantasy, that has been fed to control and manipulate your very existence. I mean really? Think about this for just a moment. Your ancestors were stolen from their homeland, stripped of all knowledge of self, then taught the white mans way of life. They don’t care if you get into heaven, their only purpose is to make your life a living hell. He the slave master held a Bible in one hand with a whip in the other, as he emasculated the men, to plant fear in the women and children, yet you believe in the words that were fed to you by your enemy. Over 300 years later, all of a sudden their agenda and mindset has changed?

Not when inner city Chicago (mostly black people) is considered a war zone, and not even former President Barack Obama did anything about it. Not when black men and women are being shot down by the police in cold blood. Not when the media gets paid to tell lies and bend the facts. Not when the water in Flint Michigan has been tainted and were just now learning about it. Not when whites are more welfare recipients than blacks, yet were considered lazy. Not when inner cities across this entire country is still in the slums of the effect of crack cocaine haven flooded our neighborhoods in the early 80’s. Not when predominately black men are being targeted to become prison slaves. Not when the schools in the ghetto are terrorized by gangs and drug violence, and children are forced to live like adults, because of the circumstances in which they live (as if they have a choice). Not when there is a copy-write on the Holy Bible( somebody cashes a check) for feeding lies to the masses.

How does religion effect change in our lives as African American people, as individuals, and as a community? It effects everything, how we think about life and death. It effects how we treat others and how we see our circumstances in life. Why try to live a righteous life if all you have to do is repent and you can go to heaven?  For example if I Killed a child in cold blood and repented I would in theory get into the gates of heaven. Meanwhile others dedicate their entire lives to walking a righteous path (the path of the Lord) it wouldn’t seem fair to sit in the same heaven with a murderer just, because he felt bad about being a murderer. Does that seem fair to you? They say, God is a Just God, yet my African American people still have not received justice for our enslavement. We have not received justice of reparations and even for majority of people to see our situation as worthy of justice. How many times have I heard people make references to blacks predicament, like the past is the past, let it go, your free now…bullshit!!! The Jews got reparations for the Holocaust and the Germans used American tactics to complete their heinous crimes…yet we didn’t even get a acre let alone a piece of live stock. I will tell you what we did get though, that BIBLE. They know they can keep you in their control mentally through their religion (simple logic).

There is a way out of mental slavery! Stay true to yourself, stop looking for them to tell you who and how to love and live. You have a conscious which makes you supreme by the laws of nature. Which is the only law that you should follow. Your conscious helps you decide what is right and wrong, but life is not just black and white. So whats right for you may be wrong to me. Its how we treat each other, how we communicate, how we look at the overall big picture, our existence on this planet earth, and the impact we all have on one another. Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you, yet people don’t even apply what they claim to believe in (I refuse to be a hypocrite). At the end of the day do what is right without having to wrong another person to get the job done. Yeah your trying to feed your kids, but you robbed your fellow brother or sister to do so, that’s not righteous. understand that the churches you give your money to do nothing for your community(they rob the community)… lets learn more about what has been stolen from us, who we are, find a more divine method of living, and we will see change in ourselves, our lives, and our communities. The new age Jim Crow way isn’t working for us, it never has and it never will!! Do away with the fear of going to hell after death and be courage’s to get your happiness and peace right here on earth. Be apart of the solution and not the problem, and  to be frank with my fellow brothers and sisters Wake the Fuck Up-Stay Woke, And have a Nice Day!!!

No Mystery God!

As a 5 year old girl I started to question the religion that was automatically assigned to be apart of my identity. A born Christian, I say that, because my ancestors were given a black book called the bible. A curse from the slave master, but kept my people going while being beaten and hung for over 3 centuries so naturally Christianity would be apart of my upbringing as well. I remember going to church in parts of my life, but not religiously. I went enough to enjoy the music, cry and feel sad, then see people dancing and shaking speaking in what they call “tongues”  I asked my parents, mom and granddad the meaning of Jesus, what is the meaning of God, is Jesus God son or is Jesus God?  There is certainly a huge difference in the two. At five years old I began to question the very beliefs people based their entire lives on. Throughout my life I remember calling on him, preying and asking for help. While I watched my mother struggle to take care of her five children, as I watched every man she gave her heart to and bared their seed, then abandoned her, as I watched her health become stricken at only age twenty eight, I watched her fight until her last breath to give us food, clothing, shelter, and most importantly love. I still struggle to this day believing that he was at all around while growing up on the east side of Detroit MI.  I prayed literally, an innocent child prayed not for herself, but for her mother and her family to have a better life and still, nothing. To hear her weep in the middle of the night from the pain she was enduring from her kidneys failing during labor, was enough to make any child feel helpless. That was enough to cause me to question the belief that there is some being, spirit, or man sitting in a magical place outside the universe already having our lives written for us. Then why have a conscious, why have a choice as to how you will live your life?

We all have our on journeys to walk in life and we will not all follow the same belief system. Some of us will not feel the need to elect a specific belief system and be controlled by religion. I don’t need to believe in what I know exist within me. Why continue to search outside of yourself for what’s already embedded in your code? Your DNA is that of the divine creator of all realm’s of reality.You are made up of DNA and of thee infinite mind, both unique to each and every one of us. Life is tangible, you think it, feel it, breath it. The individualized code is like no other living human or species in the entire universe is remarkable in itself, some would call it a Miracle! Could it be that Thee are all Gods? Gods of our on universe (lives)?

I have thought about this and many other scenarios about the secret to life. The most asked questions, who am I and where did I come from? If you’ve ever looked through a telescope you can see stars, the sun, planets, space, darkness (matter). Space= not bounded by time. Infinite, no beginning or ending just a continuum. I see space as a physical form of my mind no limit to how much information, experiences, memories and ideas I can feed it and no limit to how far my thoughts can travel.  That same analogy can be used to explain how we are all in the physical form of God. God to me is the infinite mind, then you become tangible(life) bringing it right back to the mind again 360 degrees(death).

Then I go back to analyzing this very topic all over again. Am I the only person questioning what has been fed to the masses? This post does not serve the purpose to be at all boastful about who I am or what I believe. Nor do I judge or look down on those that have found their way and purpose in life through religion. Rather I pose the questions that we all have asked ourselves; at some point in our lives we have questioned. Sometimes I feel like the five year old me trying to figure it all out.Trying to figure out how I got to my fathers nut sack, how did I swim faster than the millions of other little sperms to make it home, inside my mother, only to stay there for nine months and be Born, and here I am twenty eight years later.

The experiences that I’ve had in life has done one thing for sure, and that’s keeping my mind open to learn and grow from all that I have come to know. I’m not rejecting anything, instead taking it all in, expanding my mind and heart and respecting all that is life. I want to live free in who I am and who I aspire to be, religion only stagnates this goal. I do not want to live in a bubble of folk tales and lies. The Bible has blood on her hands of my ancestors and I will avenge them in every step that I take to find my truth. I will not fear my own destiny,because I choose to step outside of the norm of belief and ideology. I was raised to be a leader and to be fearless, religion will not cause me to be content with the ugliness of this world.I will keep searching and along my journey I have and will continue to add more jewels to this beautiful masterpiece I call MY Life.
