Preach it brother!These guys really aren't any kOOkier than mOrmOns... less so if you consider the fact that mOrmOns believe it to be quite pleasing in the eyes of their God to go slaughter Iraqis (none of whom have ever bothered any mOrmOn, to the best of my knowledge).
To me, these bruthas are nothing but a negro version of the *Christian Identity* kooks. . .but that said, I find little to disagree with in their street corner political analysis.
Until 1976, mOrmOns openly taught that Blacks were cursed by God with a dark skin, were animals without souls, and mOrmOns also used to swear an oath to overthrow the U.S. Government in all their temple ceremonies. When I lived briefly in L.A. I used to chit-chat with the brothers selling *Final Call* near my building (not these guys, but similar) and never felt so at home as when I was listening to them preach. Had I been a little less cracker-colored and a bit more gullible, I'd have fit right in.
I used to subscribe to the NOI's *The Final Call*. . .very entertaining, and usually more substantive than a zionist rag such as NYT.
In fact, you'll notice at the end of the video there is a colored boy in the crowd who starts spouting off about *10 percenters,* and these guys just SCORN that NOI motherfucker. It's always funny when one set of kOOks look down their noses at another set of kOOks.
"Lollypop head nigger" ha ha!He's actually mostly correct about what he says about Jewzinski.I love those Black Israelite guys though. Those guys aren't HALF as nuts as most B.I guys are. Ive seen them wearing better outfits too. They usually have on white robes, wild hats and carry around Moses staffs. It sounds like they have mixed their usual wacky biblical interpretations with listening to Alex Jones show. I actually interviewed a really wild one years ago.
Even funnier is when one kook tries to out-kook another.
cwn annwn, I remember that interview with the BI. . .If you got those old Social D's, you ought to put them up on the internet.
I still have them and a box of other old zines that I thought were worth saving tucked away. I think the last time I looked at that old SD stuff was about 5 years ago. I think about a third of it was out and out embarassing, a third of it I thought was decent but flawed, and a third of it I thought was actually pretty good.If I ever end up doing anything with that stuff as far as putting it online probably the first thing I would do would be transcribe some of those interviews and put them online.
I used to see these kind of guys in the Big Apple, preaching near Times Square. They were usually dressed in "Merlin Meets Flashy 70's Boogie Quintet"-type costumes.... kind of an odd getup for a hard day's proselytizin'. They're a pretty motivated bunch, though. Fellas were out there rain or shine.
