</div><div>* U can tell a man’s beliefs by the woman he chooses…… (biracial babies are TRUE Hebrews according to bloodline theory)…. while this may be a buffet for men, it is painful for Hebrew women. It perpetuates a colorist world for us, and is too repetitive to painful pasts… “mixing” delays our spiritual maturity as people. While I am aware we produce a spectrum of complexion, we must ACTIVELY create a mindset more appreciative to the “Image of God.”
</div><div>Disclaimer: I love all people. 😂 however, we are the only people that have lost EVERYTHING…. so it’s time we move differently & stop creating conduits for wealth depletion into other nations. </div><div>Otherwise, there’s no point in feeling “different” as a “Hebrew,” if your “people” can’t be identified. A house divided will NOT STAND.</div><div>
</div><div>“With the state of our current “culture.” I honestly will never feel safe for an “exodus” to A foreign land until I see more of my brothers start loving on our ACTUAL sisters (marriage stats posted below & I have more from the census & FBI website)… as a woman, WHY would I follow OUR men into a strange country, if they showed me on THIS side of prophecy, that their hearts, protection, and loyalties are for women in the image of Cardi B, Beyoncé, Kim K, Naomi Osaka?! These women are not who me, my family or my friends resemble: yet we remain beautiful inside and out. my fear is I’d get over there to be treated like “Leah” and not “Rachel.” At least I know how to care after myself over here…. 😕 …. I am asking our superiors (men) to speak up to their brothers/friends in favor of choosing the wife that reflects your purpose. </div><div>

I am aware of the impacts of colorism. Just like Gentiles, biracials and our light 💡 skinned family members need to understand we need them to support us in the background and leave the fight up to the black and ruddy Hebrews.
I always think 🤔 who would Jesus most likely come for when it comes to healing, Venessa Williams’s of the world or the Serena Williams’s of the world 🌎 ? 🤔

Malcom X was light skinned, and MLK was rudy/darker hue. So when you said “light-skinned black people need to leave the fighting to the darker blacks” I couldnt help but to laugh. IT just sounds utterly ridiculous. My older brother is dark skinned, my best friend is dark skinned, my father is dark skinned, and my mom is a rudy hue. Just because my genetics forgot to add more melanin to my skin doesnt mean I wont fight for them. Im not saying that colorism doesnt exist, because it does. But im not going to remain quiet on issues that affect my family and circle. That will never happen. Who ever messes with my family messes with me. And I think I speak for most light skinned Israelites on that issue.

Colorism in a white supremacist system is not the answer. The reasons we tell everyone we are Hebrews is because:
1. It’s true and The idea 💡 that “Nigers” are Gods Chosen people destroys “white” privilege.
2. Jesus picture as a ruddy or dark skinned man 👨🏿 is not to hate on Light 💡 skinned Hebrews or Biracial Hebrews. It empowers us mentally and emotionally as men.
So let me ask you, if light 💡 skinned or Biracial black women are treated a bit differently from “jet” black short “nappy” haired women….why would you chose to further divide instead of “hearing” their mental and emotional 😭 pain?0

2nd Exodus I hope you humble yourself at one point which was not well received by our sisters. “That the lighter skinned need to sit back and let the darker skinned do the fight”. With each answer you add other topics without dealing with the issue which was your previous comment. Racism is a problem. Colorism is also a problem. People with lighter skin complexion experience same racism. And as everyone on this world subdued to western imperialism. Please treat both topics separated because each has its own challenges and effects. Just as you want, everyone here has his/her best interest for the community too. We have good examples like our brother THOUGHT CAMERA ACTION, who has lighter skin complexion and doing an exceptional work for us. And if a person is upset, we should stop not try to act as if they got mad out of nothing. This can really cause problems here. I hope you understand it. Peace and blessings brother.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 2:32 pm
Peace and blessings family, well received.
I’ve personally said enough on the topic. I love all my sisters, my Hamite sisters, and my Gentile sisters. I understand our people’s need to establish order.
That’s why the Nina Simone and Zoe Saldana as an example…drew so much controversy but this is more of something that should be handled by our women.
Again family I’ll definitely be humble and no my place on this topic, peace ☮️ and blessings0

💀 @AriellaLaBella ATP, are you being divisive on purpose? I see what you’re doing & you keep trying to make this the good ol “skin culuh” talk without answering ANY of the Original questions…. feel free to create a “light skin/dark skin” discussion if that’s what you wish sis, but that’s beneath the focus of this discussion… 🛑🙅🏾♀️0
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 12:46 pm
DONT do the Gender “male vs female” thing either. Leave that to the Gentiles… last I checked both men and women were out here picking the Gentiles cotton…we in this together. Same with my light skinned brothers and sisters. I literally have a blood 🅰️ sister the complexion of Jada pinket smith and I have another blood 🩸 sister the complexion of “Pam” from Martin. We have the same parents but I can see how the different both sisters 👯♀️ experiences are when dating our men.
This seems like what the poster of this thread 🧵 is concerned 😟 about, being rejected 🙅♂️ Or loved less because she is darker skinned by OUR men.
If we can blame “white women” for producing more racists then we need our women to reflect on producing colorists in the community.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 11:29 am
lol. WHAT PRIILEGE?! We’re only treated differently if we remain quite and start cooning. The moment us light skinned people speak up for the black community, we “aint nothing but another Niger”. What sort of privilege’s is it to screw over your own family just to get an extra step ahead? Thats not a privilege. A privilege is suppose to be 100% benefit. White supremacy wants me to shoot my own foot to get a dollar more than you. Fuk their so called privilege’s. How about you stop causing division and understand that?!
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 12:52 pm
So you mad 😠 for not getting the 💯 percent privilege white women get but ignore the Hebrew women who get zero percent privilege with their dark skin and no form of European features?
I’m being light 💡 hearted of course … y’all don’t be mad it’s just a discussion….again our solution is not in fighting it is repenting for angering God Almighty, rejecting Jesus to be lynched by white people on a tree 🌲 and not keeping the commandments by loving 🥰 God and each other
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 4:46 pm
That 100% part though 👀👀 good catch @1kings8-47 🍿… @AriellaLaBella I’m not being mean, from your pic you have melanin love, many of my nearest and dearest who are your complexion would be playing in the sun w me, no more than 30 minutes… suddenly you’re my tone or close to it 😭… the purpose of this thread is to attach love and purpose to the pigmented shades of you, bc many women your complexion and above (if that’s you in the pic), either vent about identity & acceptance issues; or bask in privilege, there’s not much in between. There is nothing wrong w your complexion, I’m just ready for Hebrews to pick a stance and stop staggering the fence on a gift God gave us: pigment. And Bc many of our wealthier, more powerful, adversaries don’t have as much pigment, us continuing to support genetic selection against our own, WILL bring about confusion on the Hebrew identity & leaves opportunity for enemies to enter and FURTHER divide. This is why this conversation needs to be had. I left biblical context to support my cause in other comments.0

I was raised in a segregated suburb in the 90s. Black people had to band together to create libraries, daycare centers, and schooling for us as our elders didnt want us kids going into the white side of town for our safety. Meanwhile, I had to hear kids in school claim that my area was “ghetto” and “violent”. Some white girl telling me “if i walked down the street in your neighborhood, id be afraid of getting robbed”.
I was raised by a village where either you’re black or you’re not. I didnt find out about colorism until i had to move to a predominantly black neighborhood where my own casted me out for my skin tone and my “white girl voice”. It was the first time i was told I wasnt black or black enough.
The problem isnt me. Its you. For you to even say “I want that 100% benefit white women get” is the most disgusting thing i’ve ever heard coming from my own. You’ve slandered me. But thank Yah he can read hearts. You clearly dont know me. I forgive you. I wont stop standing up for my own rather im light, dark, burnt, or blue. Is what it is.0
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 2:19 pm
@AriellaLaBella NEVER say your genetics “forgot to add” ANYTHING to you, EVER! You are made beautifully EXACTLY the way God intended and I stand on that. God said EVERYTHING he made was good. This post isn’t tearing ANY complexion down, we ALL have a role to glorify God’s kingdom. Don’t miss the WHOLE POINT.
U mentioned MLK & MX…. They were BOTH killed is what we HAVE to FIRST acknowledge… who killed them?! 1of US?? White people? The govt?
If your answered ANY of those, you’re still thinking FAR too carnally, and THIS is what’s wrong with us.. GOD said he was going to throw all our leaders down bc we ANGERED HIM….. I NEVER hear anyone discuss this verse. GOD said in the Bible, ‘He will overthrow ANYONE who tries and deliver us.’ Nothings gonna work sis, except we do right this time around! REPENT! Repentance comes with a series of self reflection….. Meeting that 400yr deadline isn’t enough…
Hear me out…. if the people that are MOST affected by the curses of Deut 28 (hebrews) are the ONLY who can properly explain the Bible to the whole gentile world……. can we not say the same for those of us who are MOST affected by the curses within our VERY OWN families? DARKER family members can’t escape DEUT 28 as easily as some of my siblings, and these are just facts… the Bible even differentiated between complexions within the same families.. If God did it, why wouldn’t we? However… we can follow God’s way of differentiating (holy), or the Gentiles way (colorism)…..
OUR God the Most High says: “Can an Ethiopian change his skin or a leopard its spots?”
it’s not right for us to equalize our positions as the same, and the line has to be drawn somewhere if we are to build a nation. As a ruddy brown, I will NEVER equalize my struggle over any of my deeper brown sisters, NEVER! It is obnoxious for me to do so, I’m heated simply thinking about the struggles I see them encountering. It’s insensitive, and on the other side of this 400year prophecy, it’s time Hebrews embrace their pigment.
Truth of the matter is, we HAVE to leave confusion & refocus on purity. This stance is purely biblical and nothing personal.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 7:07 pm
I never said anything to you EVER either. I was talking to someone else.
Spiritually yes. Yah allowed the death of MLK and MalcomX. Carnally though, they were a threat to white supremacy. So they got cut. Both black men. Both different hues. The point im trying to make is that regardless of tones, if you stand against white supremacy and you’re black, you will be targeted period. Spiritually, you cant seriously think the curses are going to say “oh well they’re light skinned. Let me just poke them”? No. Yahs word wont return void. If you dont uphold the commandments, they will slap the ever living mess out of you regardless of skin tone. White supremacy is a different issue. White supremacy shows favorites to one over another to prevent people from coming together. But you have to dismantle white supremacy to stop that. You wont be able to dismantle it by attacking your own. A house divided can not stand.

🤦🏾♀️. I’ll rephrase….: Can anyone. ANYONE. Explain how Hebrews are to be a United 👏🏾PEOPLE👏🏾. …. if we aren’t selective or inclusive to who is considered Hebrew. WHAT then makes HEBREWS different from Colonial Christianity other than the name change…?
P.s. I also experienced the same discrimination of being “too white” Ariel, which is why I’m encouraging US to embrace our melanin more… so we can loved ourselves more… personal experiences, which we ALL have, are simply not enough to curtail the relevance of the scriptures on this topic…. the scriptures want us to COME OUT from AMONG THEM….. now can YOU find SCRIPTURAL support for this ambiguous Hebrew congregation “where anyone tinted is considered black” Bc from what I understand, the word describes a VERY PECULIAR people… this means the Hebrews didn’t BLEND IN with EVERYONE..0

I’ve also never ever EVER equalized my struggle with dark skinned black women. Sounds like you guys are just jumping to a bunch of assumptions about me that arnt even true. My original comment was this: Im going to stand up for my people regardless of my skin no matter what. I was raised to build, create, uplift, and help my own.

So, we’re supposed to get out of the way because we’re light-skinned? Move to the back and be quiet because we didn’t come out dark? The both of you sound silly! I’m not biracial, and in fact I’m only about 14% European, which is less than the average “African American”. But, because of how my genes expressed themselves when I was forming in my mother’s womb, I’m supposed to feel bad about myself and stay in the back with my mouth shut and keep a low profile?
I’ll go back to being a Christian before I do that! This is CRAZY!! Like black people, regardless of skin tone, don’t have enough racism and prejudice to worry about from other nations! Now, we have Israelites taking on the ways of the heathens.
The both of you need to go sit your behinds down somewhere and be quiet! What you are advocating is silly, selfish, and against Yah! I’m 50 years old and I’ve always had to stand up for myself. I’m not about to stop doing that now. If you have problems with light-skinned Israelites YOU are the problem and you need to REPENT!

Elder, Like Paul, I’m trying to be as understanding as I possibly can to all men. Even my friend Fahad is compassionate enough to listen to me Rant about Ashkenazi Jews all the time as a Sunni Gentile Muslim. Fahad’s patience with me has helped me not judge 👨⚖️ people based on race ethnicity or even gender. I have to be a better person even with the LGBTQ community not because of their lifestyle but because we are all people that need love ❤️ .

You have been obnoxious this entire thread. Please support your opinions with SCRIPTURE, otherwise excuse yourself from the discussion until you can contribute in an productive way. This is the Iron sharpens IRON section. & your comments are over reactive, belligerent and absorbing space on the thread. You haven’t once asked me any clarification, instead you’ve charged with accusations, and tantrums everytime.
I apologize to the other participants, & appreciate your concerns/rebuttals. But this member is NOT growing the discussion in a manner that’s needed in ANY of our communities, respond or ignore her at your discretion. Thank you.
To the active participants below, thank you for expressing yourselves respectfully, I hope we can continue to this sensitive topic, with decorum Bc Hebrews are better than fist fights (are we not tired of that behavior by now?)
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 10:18 pm
You must have something against light-skinned women too. SMH. I was not the only obnoxious person in this thread. You were obnoxious, too. You don’t think that being passive-aggressive isn’t obnoxious? You could have addressed me personally, but instead you chose to talk about me in the third person KNOWING that I would see your post. And, now you’re trying to convince people not to interact with me. YOU ARE A CYBERBULLY. And, if that’s not obnoxious – and sneaky and backstabbing – I don’t know what is. And you have the nerve to try to tell me how to behave. Start by taking your own advice. Or, better yet, grow up.
Also, last time I checked this was America where I have the right to say almost anything I want. And, per the rules of this social network, I’m not going to be censured, censored, silenced or punished for saying what I want to say, as long as I don’t use foul language or otherwise disrespect anyone else. And, I haven’t disrespected you or anyone else. Not liking what someone says doesn’t mean they were disrespectful.
You started this entire back and forth by not minding your own business. Yes, this is the Iron Sharpening Iron section. The OP said something that made no sense and I sharpened her iron. If she had a problem with my reply, she could have responded to me herself. That is what this particular subforum is for! But, she didn’t. If you didn’t have anything to add, which you didn’t, you should have remained silent. You’re accusing me of doing the same thing you’re doing yourself and you can’t even see it.
I don’t care if you respond. I’m not here for you, and just because I’m an Israelite woman that doesn’t mean I have to be a timid little doormat. I’m not in rebellion for speaking up when I think something is unfair, especially when I’ve been cordial. Please learn the difference between someone having passion for their position and someone being angry and/or obnoxious about their position. This is something that I’ve noticed that our people struggle to do. All pushback gets categorized as “anger” or “arguing” even when it’s just really discussion or a sharing of an unpopular opinion.
Yes, this was long, but I didn’t write it for just your benefit. Other people will read this and see that I make some valid points and, maybe, will give some deeper thought to the topic at hand and the ones I’ve covered in my posts. That is the goal of communication, which seems to be lost on you. Have a good day and, please, let this be the end of our communication.0

Please refer to this scripture as a guide.
40And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did itto one of the LEAST of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
If I am a VERY well paid American, should I ignore the grievances of the economic classes below me simply because I’M comfortable? Or would this make me guilty of mistreating GOD HIMSELF by ignoring / having lack of compassion for the LEAST of these?0
- MemberFebruary 26, 2021 at 10:58 pm
Who is ignoring the grievances of dark-skinned Israelite women? It’s presumptuous of you to assume that all light-skinned sisters ignore the plight of our dark-skin sisters. Some may do that, but it’s very unfair for you to ghettoize us into one group and paint us all with the same brush. I feel like this might be something that YOU did in the past and now you’re projecting that on all of us. I’m not picking up that load and carrying it, because it doesn’t apply to me.
Furthermore, I still maintain that your “concern” is misdirected. You’re blaming light-skinned women, even though it’s the men with the fetishes for light skin who are doing the choosing. And, just so you know, it’s not a cakewalk for light-skinned women, either. It’s CREEPY being objectified and fetishized (they work together).
It’s really two sides of the same coin. Dark-skinned women don’t want to be overlooked just because of their complexion and light-skinned women don’t want to be pursued just because of their complexion. The problem in both those scenarios is… MEN.0
- MemberFebruary 26, 2021 at 4:17 am
Yeah, it sounds like insecurity issues to me too. Their problem seems to be low self-esteem, not skin color. Then they blame “skin color” on why a man doesn’t desire them when in fact it could be that we sense they have low self-esteem. If I married a woman with low self-esteem then she would transfer that low self-esteem to my children. I won’t allow that to happen. I’ve met some dark skinned women who attract Black, white, asian, latino and middle eastern men like crazy because they had high self-esteem. Their attractiveness had nothing to do with skin color, but with who they were inside.
A man doesn’t want a woman all torn up inside with low self esteem. Their low self-esteem will get them to behave in undesirable ways like talking at the top of their voices in public, being constantly defensive or behaving anxiously. THAT is not attractive.
There is nothing more beautiful to me than a quiet, peaceful woman who is comfortable in her own skin. You can see it in her face. THEY draw me like a moth to a flame….regardless of skin color.
- MemberFebruary 24, 2021 at 9:04 pm
What could I say to her that would help her feel united with me? I’d tell her that light-skinned women are not her enemy or in competition with her, so she had no reason to be insecure. Insecurity comes from within. Nobody can MAKE you feel insecure, and nobody can MAKE you feel as though you’re in competition with them.
Don’t compete. PERIOD. Do what you do, how you do it, and trust YAH to send the right man to you, in Yah’s time. And, if a man doesn’t or can’t appreciate you because you’re brown and beautiful, then BUMP HIM, because he doesn’t deserve you!
Better is coming. Just stay obedient and put your strength in Yah and not yourself. Stop worrying about things you have no control over, including the “type” preferences of men. What if you’re obsessing so much over skin tone preferences that you miss the signals coming from a good brother who has his eye on you? Lastly, if you’re minding your own business you don’t have time to mind other people’s business.
That’s what I would say to the young lady.

It’s odd how this sister chose to attack the topic Instead of ask for biblical revelation on the topic. After all, isn’t this all about what GOD wants? Not OUR will but GOD’s will be done…. I will not argue on this thread. I’m encouraging unity through uplifting the people with GODS image.. this is NOT a 1990s “skin color” discussion. Let’s grow beyond that, no tantrums; just…. GODS Will.

This sister has a name and you were welcome to use it. From now on, I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t talk about me when you have the opportunity to talk TO me. I said talk, not argue. I’m not here to argue with anyone either. But, I’m tired of light-skinned women being crapped on because dark-skinned women have had a hard time. We’re not responsible for that. But, instead of addressing the people who do the choosing – the men – the OP berates light-skinned women. As if we had anything to do with being born with lighter skin OR are responsible for the color hierarchy in place in this country, and the world. Her anger and frustration is misdirected. The OP word vomited all through her post, but you take umbrage with me for reacting badly? You go sit down too. And, not everything is so deep that we have to go to the Bible to know there’s a problem. Common sense works well, too, you know. Have a nice day.
- MemberFebruary 23, 2021 at 6:27 pm
@Tzuriyah This has nothing to do with colorism. We know darker woman have been passed up and made the symbol of “ugly” since this stuff started. If you wanna unite ppl stop picking folks that don’t represent all of us. The white man made lightness a dividing tool. If you can’t see how a hebrew woman with rich skin has been cast aside. More observation and conversation must be had. White women are cherished because the produce more white bloodline. Hebrew women should be cherished because we were chosen to produce more of God’s ppl.
- MemberFebruary 24, 2021 at 9:17 pm
Let me get this straight. You and I are strangers. You and I have never interacted in any way before now. Yet, you know me well enough to tell me to stop picking people that don’t represent all of us? Just how do you figure you know who I’m picking? Don’t put words in my mouth. Do I come across as afraid to speak my mind? If I want to say something, I will say it. When that happens, you’re welcome to reply because this is an open forum. But, until I actually say something, don’t put words in my mouth.
Furthermore, I never said that I didn’t believe colorism was real. It is very real. But it makes no sense to berate people for their skin tone — a thing which none of us have any control over. The OP’s issue is with men who engage in colorism, but why is she berating light-skinned women more than giving the men a piece of her mind?
What she’s doing is like the woman being cheated on going after the side chick and not her boyfriend or husband. The anger is misdirected and aimed at the wrong person. And, I will not stand by and be demonized because I was born light-skinned. I don’t give a rat’s patootie who doesn’t like what I just said. I’m not doing it. End of discussion.

We’re coming out of captivity, therefore the wives chosen now should resemble The new mindset. We should want to look at our children and know they are a continuation of us. Same values, same principles, same language, one accord: one God. Your son should be able to see he is in your image, and his son should want sons in their his. Something interesting to me is how some boys grow up very close to their mother…. (this would be Jacob and Joseph)…. I just pray, the women you all are choosing, will be completely God fearing, and not continue to slip paganism etc, from their childhood cultures into your new homes now that the 400 years are over. Bc remember, every single time idols were slipped into ANY camps, God brought death to those families… Remember Rachael & how she died early & was buried under a tree after giving birth? Remember the Golden Calf? Remember Esau who troubled his parents?

You’re totally right @1kings8-47 . The change begins in our hearts. I believe the time period of this picture was when black women simply wanted the best lives for their children and hopefully some relief in life themselves from those children’s anticipated success… in this time period, a recessive complexion was prerequisite for a better life; this ideology continued far into the 90s & early 2000s….& “good hair” initially was more about which texture was easiest to manage, but simultaneously became a standard of beauty since it could be “wash n go” worn without a head scarf. A woman’s hair is her glory right? Well, the women of today have created “black girl magic” and other self-loving movements to restore the esteem stolen from us through the passage of survivorship. We are now embracing the curves, the jawlines, type 4C -4D hair textures, melanin drip, etc…. we refer to each other as queens, etc. we’ve taken back African dance from predators who have oversexualized it and made it ours again. Don’t u find it odd how ballerinas can gap their legs to 180 angles in leotards, but somehow it’s art, while our cultural dances were too sexual? Well we are reclaiming our OWN narratives. we’ve marched for our men. We are challenging each other to physical fitness and mental health wellness. We are taking care of our hair & bodies… we are getting degrees to be Proverbs 31 women…

There is no such thing as “white supremacy.” How could whites be supreme if Yahuah is Black and not white? Yahuah’s children are Black and supreme. How could gentiles be supreme when nowhere in scripture does Yahuah EVER say He loves them, but calls them dogs and even as spittle? Yahuah says over and over again he loves ISRAEL…who are Black of course. Gentiles are not the Bride of the Lamb, Israel is so how can they be supreme?
Black people need to learn to not perpetuate these false, racist terms. There is no such thing as white supremacy. There IS such a thing as Hebrew Supremacy though. 😃0

That’s the problem…you have no inkling of who you are or your position in Yahuah’s Kingdom. There are Kings/Priests and there are slaves. If you have no clue which one you are then you need to go all the way back to the drawing board. Do you think a King is not superior to his slave? In that case our Master/King Yahuah is not superior to us (His slaves), we are the same right? See how stupid that sounds, yet you surmise that no one is superior to the other, but that a King/Priest is not superior to a slave.
You read the bible about TMH and angels of different heirarchies, yet you think with humans it is not so even though the scriptures are clear the Gentiles will be our slaves. Gentiles are going to be our slaves, but we are not superior to them?
Yahusha AND King David are going to be superior to you and me. Are you saying that no one of them is superior to you, that we are all the same?
Sweety, you gotta get your mind right.0

Also, I just don’t get your black skin inferiority complex. I know exactly HOW you got it, I live in America, but since going to college and researching black skin myself I found that black skin is SUPERIOR! The problem with our Hebrew race is we’re not running to RE-educate ourselves about EVERYTHING these devils have taught us about “blackness.” The sooner we re-educate OURSELVES and do our OWN research into “blackness” we will continue to have a blackness inferiority complex. Education is the key. Ignorance is not bliss.
Just a side note, whenever I look at women, especially in videos of African women or even when I see women here in Louisiana who are black skinned…when I see those jet black womens skin I go nuts. It gets me going something fierce! I’m not talking dark, I’m talking that jet black, coal-black color. This is not an X-Rated forum so I’ll not elaborate any further, but…they get me going. When I see them I start salivating. My little brother is the same, we both love them.
So no, I have no idea why Black-skinned women would have a complex when Black men love them.
Maybe they have the complex because they watch and are immersed into these Gentiles T.V. shows and movies. I don’t watch T.V. and rarely watch movies because every time I watch one they are telling me Blacks are…..idiots/stupid as hell/weak/ignorant/undesirable/poor as hell/destitute/whoremongers/uneducated losers. So if they are telling me that every dayin movies and T.V. why would I want to immerse myself in that psychologically destructive programming every day? Yet I see Hebrews GLUED to those T.V. sets and movies like they are crack. If Yahuah said to come out from among them then why are immersed into their society? The problem is with Black women watching these wiicked Gentiles’ psychological programming all day long. I know some Hebrew women who literally sit in front of the T.V. set all day long sucking up all that demeaning psychological programming. It’stime to take responsibility for our own thoughts about ourselves.0

Um, I don’t need to “repent” for serving idols and causing my children to be passed through the fire because I just served my 400 years for those acts. And…how can I repent (turn around) from doing thse acts when…I’m not doing them anymore? 😃0

@Jai Elle I agree with your opinion and with your observation that our brothers has been programmed to prefer women of other nations. Personally, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for them, because it only takes a few critical questions to understand if it even makes a lot of sense to engage in such relationships.
“If you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for everything”. When I speak with men in interracial relationships, I never found one having a loud voice for a principal he stands for, which could bring interest conflicts with their white women. Whenever they engage with those people, they submit themselves to the culture, politics and Eurocentric worldview. Everything they believe, came from the white liberal. A big factor of that is also the lack of education by the parents, they let the media take over the mind of their kids. Which teaches them a perfect version of the Eurocentric world. Where everything just fits together and all people build the wealth for one particular nation under the illusion of inclusion.
Loving someone is a conscious decision, it takes a lot of thoughts and commitments. It doesn’t just fall, like the fantasy we see in the movies… What many of our brothers want, is to be part of the European world and sharing with them their dreams. While not understanding, that the same people (nearly all of them, whether they say it or not) don’t respect our identity, our culture and history. And it is only some personal, selfish motives which brings the interest from the other women to engage with our brothers. Anyway, we are different nations for a reason, and not everything that the others like doing, is actually good for us. We should develop collectively a high esteem for our own, loving each other more before loving others. Having values we share collective in order to do well to each other. And we should teach the kids all essentials for their life and their survival. Independence should be the goal and not integration. We can still love and respect other people from a save distance. But first, we must stop telling the lie that love has no colour. If that was the case, we would have a complete different world today. They like to engage with us because it all falls in line with their Eurocentric worldview. Otherwise I am sure, no white people would marry a black person to the destruction of their own people.
Apart from all of the things I mentioned. We are doing best to marry our own. It should be common sense… unfortunately not for everyone..

Thank you so much for this 🙌🏾.. I pray for our men so much because after all , you all are very precious to us and to God, so you are attacked/tempted more than anyone it seems… the Hebrew men in the Bible loved beautiful women from all nationalities just like every other ethnicity of man did.. difference was, God was against the idolatry those women continued to embrace from their childhood families. But I do see growth from both our men and women, I’m beginning to become more optimistic that a positive change is on the way.

Hey sis and daughter of the Almighty Creator of the Heavens and Earth, inasmuch as I don’t speak for all the brothers. From the depths of my heart deepest condolences for us dropping the ball on so many levels. Especially at the time we were needed the most. Fortunately for me I am married to a lovely Hebrewess from the same tribe as I am. I will most definitely take all your words of wisdom on board. Always know you women and daughters of YAH, that in me you have someone who truly values you as sisters, daughters, mothers, aunts confidante’s and the strength that powers our nation through Yahuah thanks to your prayers and faith. I appreciate you all more than words could ever express. I just ask YAH Almighty to give us the strenght too not fail you going forward. With the love of YAHUAH remain blessed and may his shalom be with you!

Being an Israelite is only ethnicity. Our people come from so many diverse backgrounds and experiences in their lives. If you were to share your experience as a 50 year old plus elder, why would I dismiss it?
This poster aired her grievances as a dark skinned woman in a white racist society. With all do respect elder, please allow her to share her experience about colorism.
By sharing our experiences, we can at least move past the pain we had bottled up 🆙 on the inside.
Personally, I originally agreed with the poster yet I provided an outlet for the poster to see the situation from a different perspective….it’s not about light vs dark skinned vs biracial…..this is a fight between Good 😌 🆚 evil 🦹♂️.
But before we can get people to see the spiritual warfare in their lives we must meet them where they are in the physical.
- MemberFebruary 23, 2021 at 5:03 pm
We are all in this together through love ❤️ …. and true love ❤️ is this … keep Gods commandments. And how do we keep Gods commandments? We keep them by loving 🥰 God(Jesus) with all our Heart ❤️ mind and strength 💪. The second commandment is like the first one ☝️, love ❤️ thy neighbor as yourself.
All the law and prophets hang on these two commandments. I don’t know you elder and do not diminish any struggles you have experienced, this discussion can be for anyone not just olive 🫒 skinned Hebrew women. But Hebrew women are not all the same and should have a place to tell their unique individual stories.

While you won’t be begged to stay, you are forgetting the God we serve, loves us ALL – but won’t be saving the world. these are serious prophetic times, post-400, and is no time to play with this constant behavior of “mixing out.” Refer back to Rachel and Leah “WHOLE story” if you are sincere about why we are to emphasize the relevance of women Hebrew men marry. And I Stan.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 1:43 pm
I think this has more to do with men not loving their women NOT light vs dark. We all are struggling but other races do take advantage of this skin complex we have. I’ve been looked over by men because I’m dark many times. They told me this. I could care less about skin. I love mine. But it hurts when ppl treat you badly, especially when its your own ppl. We gotta realize that.

I am definitely a new pair of eyes looking into this thread, but I wanted to come in from a loving place.
Racial and Colorism disparities has been projected within society for a drastically long time. Some of these reckless tendencies occur on a macro level and some on a micro level. The primary target of this pressing biased viewpoint is geared towards people of color specifically (Darker- Skinned) which can’t be refuted.
In corrupt media, societal structures, and culture. The ideology is that “ The darker you are, the less of human you are.” (NOTE: Those are not my words just something I’ve heard.) Anyways, The issue of this concept is the breeding of hatred, jealously, and all kinds of wickedness that it presents.
Isn’t that what our enemy, the enemy of God, the devil wants though? He wants us distracted and divided, so we’d be less likely to seek the LORD and ‘Love others as thyself’ He’s crafty remember, and some of us can and will fall by the sword before ever understanding that premise.
Tolerance, acceptance, patience, compassion, and neutral/civil conversations, without animosity; can stripped back these deceptive societal concepts however, not everyone is of the mature capacity to move in strides towards this presumption and we can observe that time and time again.
Personally, I’ve observed that all people have faced some form of racial and social tension, some ethnicities more than others but that isn’t the focus nor should it be. The focus is how I can change the way I think that will align me in the vision the LORD has prepared for me. One concept I’ve learned and formulated in life is that,
It is what is written on a person heart, and their actions; not their innate pigmentations that determine whether they act in righteous or unrighteous behavior. In other words, Wickedness isn’t assigned specifically to any skin color, age, (etc.) nor is Righteousness.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 3:29 am
I absolutely agree, “if” I had my way….my main focus 🧘♂️ For our people would be to:
1. Get the history, science 🧪, and biblical evidence of our Hebrew ethnicity to the diaspora and have our people identity themselves as Hebrews and not black/African/colored/negro etc.
2. We would have a mandatory National holiday for repentance so our people can ask God for forgiveness nationally/worldwide.
3. Last we need love ❤️ … no matter the skin color. The faster we put away silly 🙃 distractions from Satan, the faster God will see our true love for Him reflected in our actions to each other and the Gentiles.
I’m not going reach many people by bashing their experiences and saying it’s all not that bad. Just show some compassion and help them understand that we are together through Christ Jesus and His example of Love ❤️.
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 3:42 pm
I absolutely agree. Some participants have switched this into an “All Complexion Matter” thread, when my focus is to uplift the deeper shades in their role in the body of Christ. The lack of desire from a few participants in this thread to acknowledge the unique struggle & possible special role from people with deeper shades in the body of Christ rings eerily similar to how SOME white people will chant, “ALL Lives Matter,” at a BLM rally. My role @1kings8-47 is to challenge the norm and help destroy this Supremacist mindset that apparently runs deeeeeeep lol. We can’t SINCERELY repent unless we start humbling & examining OURSELVES… self image is HUGE which is why I’m receiving a small level of pushback on the topic. One of us on this thread has even passed poorly observed assumptions about my personal characteristics just for uplifting deeper toned sisters in Christ. What is the point of Hebrews, if we remain more partial to the look/culture of our oppressors? 🤷🏾♀️ “They not DER” (quote from the honorable late Pastor Stephen Darby)
- MemberFebruary 26, 2021 at 10:14 am
When I brought in love I wasn’t trying to dismiss your message. I just feel like overall exclusionary practices are wrong and that’s what I was targeting. I do agree, Hebrew Men and Women have to start the healing process, have to have a platform to discuss these issues we’ve been dealing with for 400 years. I’m not denying our struggle, our pain, the injustices done onto us daily. I understand that as Hebrew Women and Men: have been lied to and lied about for so long and that’s clear, that’s evident. It saddens me that our people have been disgraced but I look now to
– What can we do next?
– How can we form more communities online as well as offline to assemble our voices within the masses while we still have time?
-Lets beginning an online campaign idk lol 😂
I just wanted you to know Leah, I was never attacking you. I just believe that as well as uplifting our voice we should include, those who also are waking up, actively listening, and retaining the truth; of our origins as a community. Hebrew Men and Women are waking up but also Gentiles as well. That’s what makes this platform so interesting is that exclusionary is not the norm; we are able to communicate like this, we are able to discuss what we should/ could/ or can do in these End Days.
The Most High is turning hearts that was once harden onto him again regardless of age, status, skin color, (etc.)
Again, I’m not denying that our people has suffered tremendously and are still suffering but I also won’t deny that those who have their hearts open, yearning for the truth and understanding, should also be incorporated and included and not excluded like the heathens practice.
We’ve seen division and the detrimental effects of it firsthand and in my mind; I cant make progress with that same ideology, especially when that ideology was use to keep us in a perpetual bondage state across the earth. Who designed that ideology, it wasn’t the Most High who wanted divisions with people by skin color, it was whom? By, the evil one who desired so badly to be (The Most High) but could not: he (devil,demons,the serpent,satan) whatever you want to call him, created this perpetual jealously, rage, deception, and hate system.
When we are compelled in learning the truth of the Most High and His Son the Messiah and Actively Changing our mind out of the Beast (System), we learn and practice daily the importance of loving others, respect, honor, prayer, meditation, self- love, strength, compassion, wisdom, tolerance, patience, progress, change of mindset to behaving righteously, obedience, uplifting others, giving heart, faithfulness, (etc.)

“Tolerance, Acceptance, Patience, Compassion” I agree with you Ayanna Ahamefula
These are qualities we all as “Children Of Light” need to fine tune in ourselves, to be an example onto others. I liked this video by Mr Blaktastic, he mentions it’s the devil who creates division with lighter and skin darker skin.
I started the video from his black history section, but watching the video in full is worthwhile in my opinion.
I feel this video titled “Taming The Tongue” is food for thought no matter how long we have been in this walk.
I paraphrase what Mr Blaktastic says here…
“Never let nobody put you down for the hue of your skin because, The Most High made you like that”
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 6:13 am
I really love this conversation. Because there is a disparity. It’s just a fact and most of the time, the people on the better side of the division will fight to keep their privilege (no matter how small it is). Everyone does hurt. And I think black women as a whole could start healing within our group if we acknowledge each other’s pain and stop stepping over each other for a man. But this division is prophecy and I trust God will set all this straight.
As far as picking on someone goes, I’m addressing an issue I relate to. Too many rich colored girls and boys have been looked over and mistreated within our own, especially when it comes to finding a love. Me, I had no idea it was happening until a certain situation passed and all those feelings collected leaving me feeling small and unwanted. And it was among my hebrew ppl who made me feel this way. Everyone needs to feel wanted and accepted, especially in your people. We a community yall. We need to see and acknowledge each other. It’s not about personal feelings of being attacked. Folks feel betrayed and healing comes from acknowledging pain. Leah MotherofIsrael has had the same pain among women with the same features, being over looked for something as shallow as pigment. That’s what this discussion is for🌸Healing🌸This aint politics.

(Isaiah 14:1) “For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.”
🤨Why are people so concerned about what hue some of us will look like when scripture says the stranger will dwell among us in the promised land regardless? In case we are concerned about the promised land becoming a racial jungle, the vast majority of blacks still prefer to mix with their own. <font face=”inherit”>Most of the blacks cohabitating and marrying outside their ethnicity are from the </font>Millennial<font face=”inherit”> generation, with generation Z starting to follow close behind this trend as they get older. And its still by and large a tiny percentage of them at less than 12% of us accounting for all intermarried couples in the U.S, when it comes to mixing with snow bunnies. And its even less than that when mixing with other groups.</font>

The hue of skin should not be such a big issue BUT The whiter you are … the more money 💰/success/security you or your people have.
The more “European” ideals of beauty the more money 💰.
The god of this world is mammon(money) and he demands white European/Caucasian physical features … everyone who worships the god of this world 🌎 mammon(money) wants to get as close to a European/Caucasian any way they can.

Beautifully explained statistic wise. But I’m REALLY confused why so many of us are behaving so shocked at this topic 😭😂. We all know it exists YALL I mean come on! The “redbone” songs etc…. exists….. so much so, that dark women have to create songs about dark beauty to feel beautiful. How does it affect men? How WOMEN raise children, ongoing cycle. Wash rinse repeat…. do you REALLY wanna make a nation with a bunch of people who hate the most dominant part of them? & we know ignoring won’t help, look at today’s churches if u wanna see the outcome of ignoring serious topics. One thing I learned about God in the Bible, people have to ACTIVELY extract our flaws, God won’t just do it for us…. if it’s pigment we are running from, which God GAVE us , let’s start EMBRACING it… purify that inner self hate.
Disclaimer: in no way do I have low self esteem 😂… I just see a serious issue that keeps leading to infighting and I don’t like it. I left legit scriptural support for embracing pigment in previous comments.

Bc Things rarely matter to people when it doesn’t affect them @CandyLamb …..
This colorism runs DEEEEEEEEP. Few here today are too preoccupied with skin complexion to even comprehend the thread….. 🤦🏾♀️… if u gotta bloodline biracial (half hispanic) ….. how is this showing unity and love for Hebrew purity? How does this make sense at all? How is this different from the Christian church? Like please do everyone a favor and just go back to colonial Christianity if your still ashamed of your melanin..and enter the world of “whosoever will” and “bottomless diversity.”
With The few little “pushbacks,” NOBODY, to this moment has answered the original concern. I know the answer, But I’ll wait to see if anyone can change my mind…
why do “Hebrew” people in 2021 STILL DESCRIBE SKIN COLOR, like that’s so Jim Crow…PEOPLE it’s called COMPLEXION. Melanin. Pigment. .Shade….. Hue… Pick one….. we’re not animals or fruit, I just wish we’d stop sounding so remedial in conversation… “Um Dark skindidded … Um light skinskindided” YALL we look DUMB to the world saying this type mess 😂…. we supposed to be the leaders & YALL busy fantasizing about looking like another nation… I’m over it …
Like Don’t even convert if u still smudging out Hebrew identity off of some low self esteem “I don’t wanna go in the sun imma get too darrkkkkkk,” type stuff…. I’m over witnessing “sisters and brothers” select out while still trying to stay in ..& those of us who marry “in” still pass down colorist insecurities .. like WHAT IS THAT?0
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 1:33 pm
This is a issue. And it doesn’t happen to one person! We lack a lot of self love. And I feel like a lot of people secretly/openly hurt. Women are deeply affected by beauty standards. Of course it’s not the end all be all standard. But it’s an important one regardless of how anyone try to say it’s vain. People are mistreated everyday because of these false “beauty standards.”
I have colorist ideology on one side of my family. Me and my sisters hurt because they don’t appreciate us and our works like they do the lighter sided cousins. Despite, doing our absolute best to prove we are beautiful, intelligent, kind women. We know we are. But it hurts when the ppl closest to you disregard you.
I feel like when women of our shade can be appreciated within our families just as much as the rest, then every woman will feel appreciated. And those toxic dynamics would end. But repentance comes first. Nothing this complex can be done without God.

@1kings8-47 @Eric-Bay I just want to pause and thank you brothers for bringing your voices to the table in this very layered and sensitive topic. It appears women are directly wounded and lightweight hostile by this divide, but it’s apparent that wounded women, raise wounded children.
You all are stand up and have been producing quality opinions from both protagonist and antagonist sides of the topic. You supported your opinions with scriptures, common sense, and facts, and this is what the discussion was intended to be!

Self- Hate should be addressed in open minded conversations; again, without animosity though.
This is one of the many constructs that affect not only our community but other communities alike.
On the bases of change; Love is unbiased, as well as serene. When you Love, no matter the complexion, status, age, custom and culture, and intellectual capacity (etc.) You don’t have the time or acuity to act intolerably.
I love this verse:
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8) “Love is Patient, Love is Kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs.”
If we love ourselves, love our neighbors, love our surroundings and treat them with honor, respect, unconditionally, then what purpose could we say that formulated anger and hate would have? What positive results could possibly come from anger or retaliation?
I digress and leave you now with a quote from myself lol

Idk. I love positivity and stuff. But when someone is opening up about a topic and they wanna talk about it. I think the worst thing people do to each other is make them feel alienated with general advice. Like its only happening to that person and no one else. I guess ppl get on here to feel like someone could relate and work out their feelings through God’s people and with him in the midst.
I dont think ppl necessarily have to hate themselves to receive/feel slighted treatment from others.
- MemberFebruary 26, 2021 at 9:25 am
No, I wasn’t saying she shouldn’t seek advice. Talking to others is the bases of change, it’s recognizing they way others think. So Not at all!? Am I diminishing her feelings or thoughts;
what I was referring to, is going out into the world (Earth) with a negative mentality towards everything including yourself. I was saying how that can affect your interactions. It was a generalized statement not targeted to her experience. It’s all centered on your mindset and what you are doing to actively change the way you think. If you have self hate and doubt, what is causing you to feel that way and what are you willing to do to change it. If you hate someone for their complexion, status, age, Think, why do you have those feelings? And what can you do to change how you feel?
It’s a balancing act of your thoughts that is left up to you to change and seeking the LORD for help through prayer and meditation is always, always, the first option for me (personally) but a great option for everyone.
Producing that inner dialogue of questions springs towards the initiative to change our mindset. If we actively are assessing our life and interactions with prayer, remapping of our thoughts, then; coming into the collective with love, peace, and joy isn’t as daunting.
That’s all, I am referring to…
- MemberFebruary 25, 2021 at 9:46 pm
@1kings8-47 So I just want to clarify. 90% of my comments have been directed at you. I agree with what Leah said in her original post 100%. My problem is your comment: believing that because im a light skinned black woman, im just suppose to shut up and not stand up for my dark skinned family. And thats not cool with me.
We all know that colorism exist. Its alive and well. We all know that the black community as a whole likes to perpetuate colorism. We all know that dark skinned people get hit the most by white supremacy. But I dont view my light skin as a privilege. I view it as a tool white supremacy likes to use in order to destroy my family.
<font face=”inherit”>As I said before, privilege is a 100% benefit. For example, there is no down side – no CONS for being white in America. There are only Pros. Being black however is nothing but cons. Even when you’re light skinned, your only option is to die fighting with your people, or hurt them/yourself (because thats what you do when you hurt your own- you hurt yourself in the process) in order to get ahead. Die or slit your wrist. Where is the </font>privilege you speak of in that? <font face=”inherit”> </font>
To which you said “So you mad 😠 for not getting the 💯 percent privilege white women get but ignore the Hebrew women who get zero percent privilege with their dark skin and no form of European features?”
I find it very telling that this is what you heard even though I never said that and such a disgusting thought never even crossed my mind. Yet this is what you claim i’ve said. So not only have you slandered me, but you’ve insulted me. Which I will forgive you for because you know not what you’re talking about and you cant read my heart.
The short answer to this is, No. I’ve never ignored dark skinned women’s plights. How could I? They’re literally my family, they’re my neighbors, and my best friend. When they hurt I hurt. And I dont want anything from white people other than their judgment. For Yah to bless those who blessed us and curse those who cursed us.
You say you want black women to address the colorism that goes on in the community and I agree. However from my perspective, the biggest pushers of colorism has always been black men within our community. Martin Lawrence, Jamie Fox, Tyler Perry, Eddie Murphy, Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles are just names I can think off the top of my head who have mocked black women (dark skinned black women at that) or have uplifted colorism in our community. And I mean you of all people should get that since you admitted to previously dating interracially. Of course this isnt the gender wars. But women always tend to follow the men. If the men are in order, the women will fall in place, and so will the children.
Im all for unifying our people. Im all for healing and understanding one another. But dont preach unity to me while putting false words in my mouth and speaking to me in a condescending tone. As someone who had to deal with segregation, hearing someone say that I want anything from white folks is one of the most insulting and aggravating things to hear. Im tired of being ready to fight for ya’ll while being stabbed in the back. I cant be a soldier for ya’ll if you’re going to paint me as the enemy. Your comment was messy and toxic af. And for that, you can take your “unity” and “Whatever” Light SKinned Prince meme and shove it.0

I don’t understand why their was a disagreement if we all agree then? It’s counter-intuitive to find the small things to fight about while the real topic of the thread is ignored. Hebrew men and women discriminate against each other by skin because of the curses from rejecting our redeemer. Darker women (I feel) catch it the worst because our glory has been turned into the symbol of rejection. I know many beautiful dark women who have been misused/neglected because of their hue. I feel that lighter hebrew women who haven’t experienced this level of disparity won’t truly understand how we feel (because its a personal experience.) I’m all for appreciation and encouragement and understanding. But nitpicking won’t help a healthy discussion.

@Daan Noella, My initial comment was in response to @1kings8-47 when he claimed light skin blacks should remain silent and leave the fighting to dark skinned black people. Which is why I brought up Malcom X and MLKs skintones so that he could see the error in his comment. He then proceeded to insult me by lying on me and claiming that I wanted White womens privilege’s and was ignoring dark skinned black womens plights. To which Leah responded “Good catch”.
I was never even talking to Leah because I agreed with majority of what she said. But she decided to jump in on his behalf and agree with him in slandering me and putting words in my mouth.
They sit there and lie on people. Then start preaching love, unity, and keeping gods commandments two seconds later. Yahs watching though. Its above me now.
<font face=”inherit”>In regards to dark skinned black womens pain, I know </font>I<font face=”inherit”> could never understand fully. But once AGAIN I never claimed that I could. Why cant </font>I<font face=”inherit”> just agree with a dark skinned black person without someone trying to spin my comment into “somehow you’re against us dark skinned people!!!!</font><font face=”inherit”>” ?</font>
Like<font face=”inherit”> damn. And you wonder why we can never get anywhere as a group. Its pathetic. </font>0

37“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’40And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did itto one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44“Then they also will answer [d]Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you,inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46Andthese will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
🗣 if you are not willing to address uplifting the deepest pigmented brothers/sisters (least of these), to return to THEIR Hebrew culture/ self esteem…. YOU are guilty of perpetuating a colorist curse amongst GOD’s people. this is NOT an “all complexion matter” campaign. YOU might be guilty of including narratives distracting to the topic of progress for GOD’s people. Stop including EVERYONE’s issues in this discussion, it makes life worst for the LEAST OF THESE…0

Hey sweety, please forgive me for all my hard, condescending, nasty responses to you today. You didn’t deserve it. We are all in different places and I need to remember that some people are new to The Awakening and I need to give them information if they ask for it. I didn’t want to give it to you earlier because it seems like I waste my time giving people inforational videos because they simply don’t watch them and I don’t like wasting my time.
You couldn’t see where I was coming from concerning Hebrew superiority so I need to give you a series of videos that…..IF you watch them….AND read source material like the Septuagint, Book of Enoch, Apocalypse of Abraham etc you will come out with a FULL understanding that Hebrews are nothing short of SUPERIOR. If you want me to do that then let me know. Otherwise I’m simply here to ask for your forgiveness for being an ass earlier today, please forgive me.0
