African spirituality is indeed demonized in American society. Some think Africans of the diaspora have been bamboozled! Have Black people been socially conditioned into becoming ashamed of the very avenue that grants access to meaning for life, protection, and power?  Is there a method to their madness. Is Ifa and voodoo as devilish as we have been persuaded to think? Were the heart’s of the strangers to our culture so devious that giving us Jesus at the crack of the whip served as salve for their cognitive dissonance? Why have all of our traditional African religions been labeled as wicked and Godless while everything European or Christian is right and pure as new fallen snow? If African spirituality is such an awful thing why is African Spirituality the foundation for all the world’s religions? Why is it okay to symbolically practice drinking the blood of and eating the body of Jesus and its forbidden to remember and honor our own ancestors? Honoring our ancestors is an essential component in the practice of African spirituality. Now, that’s something to think about.

Racism Defined

“Racism is really a mental disorder. Manifestation of racist behaviour as a result of domination are the denial of reality, perceptual distortion, delusion of grandeur, phobias in the face of differences, and projecting blame (blaming the victim). Europeans had to lie to themselves about what Africa was and had been, and to keep that information going one adapts to unreality. So when you see reality it is necessary to deny it. So denial of reality would be, to look at the population of Kemet (ancient Egypt) and say it was a white population. That is flat out denial of what the facts say. It is not true that the white group is superior to anyone and to believe in that is a psychological distortion of reality.” Dr. Asa Hillard
