Why is Kemet so Important to Afro-American Spirituality?

So I am posting this post because I just got accused of being racist. And, as you know, if you are a person of African descent who gets accused of being racist, then you must be doing something right.

So, why was I accused of being racist? Well, it is because a couple of “Kemetic pagans” (as they call themselves) disagreed with what I wrote in my latest book, Honoring the Ancestors the Kemetic Shaman Way.  In my book, I wrote that one day I asked my ancestors why did they want me to study the Kemetic path.  They responded by telling me that it was so that I could know the Divine through my ancestors similar to how Hru (Horus) learned of his divinity through his father, Osar (Osiris). It is classic ancient African spirituality to go through your ancestors to find the Divine because, in the end, it is Divine Creator who is the Ancestor of us All.  It was at that moment, that I realized why Kemet was so important to people throughout the Afro-Diaspora.

I mentioned that it became painfully apparent that the reason archeologists engage in cherry-picking DNA research such as the reconstruction of Nefertiti, is because they only want evidence to support their white supremacist agenda, which is that westerners are superior and all non-westerners are inferior.

If archeologists really wanted to know what the ethnicity of the Kemetic people was why didn’t they conduct a DNA test on Tutankhamen’s grandmother Queen Tiye (shown above)? Instead, they focus solely on test subjects that will validate their claims, and when they can’t find evidences to support their ridiculous theories.

They opt out by claiming that everything was done by extraterrestrials (E.T.) because their culture did not achieve it.   For instance, claiming that Amenhotep IV or Akhenaten was an alien due to his elongated head instead of identifying that it may be a ritualistic practice such as head binding among the Mangbetu.

Now for the record, I was not surprised that archeologists reconstructed Nefertiti’s image and she appears to be caucasoid. This confirms my belief that she was a foreigner and that Akhenaten most likely married her to broker a peace treaty between the Kemetic and Mitanni kingdom.  Further evidence that she was a foreigner and had a huge influence on Akhenaten is proof that the Aten religion was a foreign concept, which almost resulted in Kemet being invaded by the Assyrians had not the Amun Ra priesthood stepped in and restored order (See Akhenaten is Not A Kemetic Hero).  The problem I have with these studies is that these so-called scholars try to paint a picture that Nefertiti was the epitome of beauty to the Kemetic people.

So, why do the western scholars dedicate so much effort to concealing the truth about the ethnicity of the Kemetic people, and why is it important? It is because by illustrating the Kemetic people as being European and portraying them as being everything but black and brown-skinned Africans. Westerners are able to deter people from discovering the true story about the Kemetic people, which is that many of them were forced to migrate throughout Sub-Sahara Africa due to war, the Arab sponsored slave trade, and later religious jihads.  Consequently, many of the Kemetic tribal nations settled in Central and West Africa where they were considered “newcomers” and they intermarried with the indigenous Africans in the region.

For instance, the oral history of the Yoruba people begins with the Nok people residing in present-day Nigeria forty thousand years ago and is visited by a peaceful African group from the east around 2000BC and 500BC.  Consequently, many of the Kemetic divinities survive in the Yoruba language as:

  • Osar or Ausa (Osiris, father of the gods) or Ausa (father)
  • Khepera or Khepara is the beetle Akpakara (beetle)
  • Ma’at the goddess of justice became Mate the goddess of justice
  • Oset or Auset is Iset or Ise (a water divinity)
  • Hru, Horus or Horise is Orise a Sky divinity

But the Yoruba are not the only nation who trace their ancestral roots back to Kemet.  According to the great African scholar and scientist Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop who wrote Civilization Or Barbarism: An Authentic Anthropology, the Ashanti (Ghana), Wolof (Senegal, Gambia, and Mauritania), the Mandinka (Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Berkina Faso, Mali, CotedÕ Ivoir),  the Dinka (Sudan), Dogon (Mali), and Zulu (South Afrika) also claim Kemetic ancestry.  The late African scholar K.K. Bunseki Fu-Kiau has also stated that according to cultural similarities that the Bantu-Kongo people were influenced by the Kemetic people.  What is interesting is that with all of these claims being made, Western scholars have yet to do DNA testing on any of these people to verify or prove they are wrong. Why, not?

It is obvious that western scholars really don’t want to know the ethnicity of the Kemetic people because they really don’t want people to know.  That you are the Kemetic descendant. This is the reason our history in this country always begins with slavery and not the kingdoms and civilizations that our ancestors were abducted from.  It is the same reason why they demonize our spirituality because they know if we really embraced our ancestral practices. We would turn the world upside down.

Never forget we had a culture and history before America

So, the fact that someone is upset must mean that their path must not be working out, hence I must be doing something right.
