Growing up in Jamaica, as a child I was surrounded by the insanity that was Christianity. Insane because I was initially spooked by all that hollering and shouting and keeping me on the edge with fear of armageddon. Then as I got older and became aware of the Rasta movement, their outcast/outlaw status in society, how they were abused by the Po lice and the knee-grow gatekeepers of my Island society. Most of my contemporaries, my older brother included who embraced this culture and the truth they preached about African liberation, Marcus Garvey and African culture and their rejection of Christianinsanity and the love of a Caucasian icon as their deity and savior. I rejected this way of thinking based on the information given at the time, but it wasn’t until I emigrated to Canada and grew into a man, reading all I could on African ourstory, could I further overstood and was able to articulate the reasons why we are fucked for taking a Caucasian construct and fake spirituality, which they stole the original spiritual practice from out of Africa, internalized and regurgitated for us to reuse and be abused with.
In post secondary school, my running buddies at the time and i became interested in Islam, through our affinity for Malik Shabazz and at the time, cats like Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the Nation of Islam (when they were still relevant and sane) and other luminaries from the Afrocentric societies. Yet there was something off regarding my interest with this movement….Islam! I was concerned because while I knew Africa was were the shit started and were all came from, how is it that Islam preaches being alignment with nothing but Allah, yet the culture I see them practicing was more Arab than African. What drove the point home was all these knee-grow Arabs, rejecting all things African and embracing Arab cultural practice, Arab linguistics and customs and Arab women. Now don’t get me wrong, the first Arab was me, but not if you look at it now. No! Knee-grows have rejected Christianinsanity for Arabism. This became evident when my former running buddies, rejected me for not embracing Islam, while they did. I told them I wasn’t going to replace a continent with and Island and I am certainly not going to replace Africa with Arabism. Thankfully I had the wise counsel of great men and women like molefi kete asante, Dr. Ben Jochannan and numerous other scholars who paved the ways for my African consciousness.

Many knee-grows who embrace Islam conveniently do so and stay there because they believe that the enslavement of Africa and Africans are the sole providence of Christianity It is not that they don’t know better, at least after being in Islam for awhile. Because one of the teaching of Islam is to seek of Knowledge form the cradle to the grave. But many Muslim are just as ignorant as Christians in that they only listen to what the Imam or preacher states at their gatherings. They may read their holy book, but without any discernment and take many passages word-for -word with out question. Even if a particular passage was contradictory to what they believed Pryor. These intellectually wordy and commonsensically foolish, follow the indoctrination despite their eyes and heart telling them that some of the most strident ant-African belief system resides in Islam. Just like the bible, Islam states that owning a slave is a right. Just like in Christianity enslaving Africans was done. But on like the bible, the enslavement of Africans is still a social practice in many Arab countries under the guise of Islam. One cannot deny this without denying the Qu’an, or the Hadith.
Here are some of the things the knee-grows who embrace Arabism fail to tell you or are just too ignorant to see. I have added something for all those “black Hebrews” who have rejected Islam and Christianity, but still embrace any and everything except the original spirituality, not religion. I will finish off with Dr. Amos Wilson Blue Print fro black power…heed the call y’all!
