There is an awakening to the plausibility dark skinned people were scattered throughout the ten kingdoms as slaves. As more information is aggregated there is convincing evidence the true Chosen people as discussed in the Book of Deuteronomy, were in fact a people with an African origin. Please note before the geographical lines were re-engineered Israel was considered part of Africa…not the now accepted part of the Middle East. If people truly believe Europeans can walk in the Sun as the African, without the protection of clothing they are quite short sighted.
I have encountered some Internet personalities that claim to be able to debunk the Chosen people being dark-skinned. They erroneously attribute this theory to the Black Hebrew Israelite (who preach hate and division) organization while this theory was coined long before there existence. There are many White scholars with PhD and Master degrees who also promote dark skinned people are the Chosen people. Yet, some of these narrow minded individuals omit these facts from their narratives.
There is one gentlemen who attempts to debunk 400 years of history in two minutes regarding the Chosen people being a dark skinned people. He also does not offer a new candidate for the Chosen people’s identity. In the Bible there are TWO periods of enslavement for the Chosen people and Egypt was ONE of them. The other in the Book of Deuteronomy states the Chosen people will be shipped to ALL kingdoms as slaves. We know Arabs and Europeans were the actors in the global slave industry. We also know there is a slave history in ALL kingdoms with a dark skinned people.
No other ethnic group on the Earth can make this claim. How is it possible within ALL of the kingdoms slavery was abolished within years of each kingdom’s decree? Some people even discount the plausibility Black Americans could be part of the Chosen people’s bloodline. This leads me to the point in this discussion where physical evidence was found proving a connection to Hebrew and Black Americans. Below is the narrative from the YouTube producer who shared this stunning connection.
First African Baptist Church, located in Savannah, Georgia, claims to be derived from the first black Baptist congregation in North America. While it was not officially organized until 1788, it grew from members who founded a congregation in 1773. Its claim of “first” is contested by First Baptist Church of Petersburg, Virginia, whose congregation officially organized in 1774. First African Baptist Church operates a museum which displays memorabilia dating back to the 18th century. There are holes in the sanctuary flooring that form a design meant to look like a tribal symbol. These were air holes for escaped slaves who would hide in the church, which served as a stop on the Underground Railroad (UGR). During the Civil War, the church housed runaway slaves in a 4-foot (1.2 m) space beneath the sanctuary floorboards. The 9-squared ceiling showed that the church was part of the UGR. These pews located in the balcony are original to the church. These pews were made by slaves, and are nailed into the floors. On the outside of the pews are markings written in the African dialect known as “Cursive Hebrew”
There is other evidence in southern America stating that Black slaves were accepted as Hebrew as well. In 2009, a town in Farmville, Virginia, dedicated a signage monument to Black Slaves and declared them as “Israelities.” A noticed a distinction between Israelites and other “African” Americans on the sign, which supports the eye witness testimony of Herodotus (3 BC) where he could not tell the difference between and Egyptian, Ethiopian, nor an Israelite. Please note how NONE of these two minute or longer videos include this evidence.
There are far two many clues that connect Black slaves with Israel and it makes sense their identity was lost. One of the most poignant scenes in the television series “Roots” was when ALL of the slaves had their original names changed at the end of a whip. This means they lost their names and their history. They used oral history and the church system to sustain their Hebrew history, but there was an obvious concerted effort in the past, to erase their roots as the Chosen people…even today.
