Why Black People Hate Black People

Me and my mother were having a conversation the other day about “black unity” and she expressed to me how it makes her sick at how much we as a people hate each other and how she doesn’t know why we treat each other so hateful.

As an activist for black empowerment, I agreed wholeheartedly with her distaste for the way we treat each other as a people. But what really bothered me about her expressions was the fact that she didn’t know why we treat each other this way.

Prior to this conversation, I thought every conscious black person knew what the root cause of black-self hatred was, but after talking with my mom I realized I was wrong.

This bothered me because it brought to my attention that if someone as intelligent as my mom is, doesn’t know what the root cause of the self-hatred amongst black people is, then there are many other black people who don’t either.

And that is a huge problem. Why? Because you can’t find a solution to black self-hate until you know why the black self-hate exists.

So that is what the remainder of this article is about — explaining the three main reasons why we as black people hate each other so much.

The Mis-Education About God

One of the main reasons as to why black people hate other black people so much today stems from the horrible mis-education that we have all received about ourselves from schools and religions since were youths about who God is. For instance, most black people who are my age (29) or older have been brought up as Christians and taught that a white man with blond hair and blue eyes by the name of Jesus is God. This ideology is false for 3 reasons.

  1. The Jesus that read about in the English bibles today is NOT God and never once claimed to be Him (Matthew 19:16-17). He is only the son of God, which he only claimed to be.
  2. The letter “J” does not exist in Hebrew and didn’t come into the English language until about 500 years ago. Therefore there was never a man to walk this earth claiming to be the Messiah by the name of Jesus. The true name of the biblical Messiah was YAHUSHA, not Jesus.
  3. Yahusha, who the world calls Jesus, was born in Northeast Africa, had wooly hair full of dread locks, and was a Nazarite from birth. In other words, He was Black.

This ideology that Yahusha (Jesus) was God came from the pagan Roman Catholic Church during the 3rd and 4th centuries, who incorporated the trinity belief system (3 God’s in one person) of the Ancient Greeks and the Egyptians. Just like today, the original Roman Catholics were pagans and worshiped the false gods of other nations. So when they formed the religion of Christianity in the year 325 A.D., they included the pagan customs and worship practices of the other nations, and replaced their Gods with Yahusha (Jesus). This is why we think He is God.

The myth that Yahusha (Jesus) was a white man came about during the 15th century, when Pope Julius Caesar 2nd hired the painter Michelangelo to paint white images of the main biblical characters on the ceiling of the famous Sistine Chapel of the Vatican City in Italy. Among these paintings were the images of Jesus The Christ, who was falsely painted in the image of the Pope’s son, Cesare Borgia. Prior to that, all of the images of Yahusha (Jesus) and the rest of our biblical ancestors were black.

Now that we have exposed the myth of God being white, let’s take a look at how these lies have made us hate ourselves. In his book, The Valley of The Dry Bones, Dr. Windsor wrote: “The Afro-Israelites, during slavery served the slavemasters physically and mentally; they learned the psychology and the values of white supremacy… the proponents of white supremacy in America endeavored to justify slavery by saying that the blacks were uncivilized and not Christians; they used the same rationale to justify white supremacy… in the process of time, the black man began to believe in the superiority of the white man’ system. He bowed to the white man, served him in every aspect of his life, and worshipped him as God. Moreover, the master’s painted a white Jesus and gave it to the black man to serve as God. As a result, it was easy for the black man to obey and believe the white man without question.”

Anyone who knows black history knows that Dr. Windsor’s account of how a white God was presented to our enslaved ancestor’s is an established fact. Therefore, by the slavemasters forcing their images of a white God upon black slaves, it subconsciously made our ancestors associate whiteness with superiority and blackness with inferiority. This made black people start viewing themselves as second class race of people, which made it easier for the slave master to control his slaves. And after slavery was ended, the majority of black people still carried the image of God being white and that white people are better than them in their minds; and pass that teaching on down to their children.

This is why today, although we are over 150 years removed from slavery, many of our people still have a picture of a white Jesus hanging up in our homes. Therefore, since the majority of Black America has subscribed to the white man’s religion of Christianity, the majority of Black America internally views themselves as inferior to whites; which makes them look at their own people as inferior. To sum this section up, I will leave you with the words of the late Carter G. Woodson from his classic book, The Mis-Education of the Negro

“If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself.”

The Stockholm Syndrome

Another major reason why black people hate each other so much today is because the majority of us are suffering from a mental illness called the Stockholm Syndrome. In case you’re not familiar with this illness, the Stockholm syndrome is a psychological perception in which slaves express extreme sympathy and positive feelings toward their enslavers, to the point of defending and identifying with them, rather than their fellow hostages.

This mental illness first took root in the minds of black people during the 16th century, after slavery became legal here in the U.S., and was originally used as a tool by our ancestor’s slavemasters, to instill white supremacy in the minds of all the slaves throughout the plantation. By using physical punishment such as whippings, lynchings, rape, etc. to brainwash our ancestors into obeying, loving and trusting them and only them, overtime they began to identify more with the needs and wants of their slavemasters than their own people. This then produced an entire generation of not just physical slaves, but mental slaves.

After a few generations of the Stockholm syndrome being planted into the minds of our ancestors, you began to see two types of slaves: the field slave and the house slave.

The house slave usually lived in the same house as his master. He dressed like his master as well. He ate the same food as his master too. So whenever that house slave identified himself, he always identified himself in the same sense that his master identified himself. When his master said, “We have good food,” the house slave would say, “Yes, we have plenty of good food.” When the master said that “we have a fine home here,” the house slave said, “Yes, we have a fine home here.” When the master would be sick, the house slave identified himself so much with his master he’d say, “What’s the matter boss, we sick?” His master’s pain became his pain. And it hurt him more for his master to be sick than for him to be sick himself. When the house started burning down, the house slave would fight harder to put the master’s house out than the master himself would.

But then you had the field slave, the one who worked outside in fields underneath the hot sun all day long. He didn’t get the same treatment that the house negro got. Instead of sleeping in the nice house with the master, they slept bunched together in one single room with the rest of the field slaves. Instead of eating the fresh food from the master’s house, they eat the leftover food from the field. Needless to say, the field slaves hated the white man. Unlike the house slave, the field slave could not and did not identify with his slavemaster, and therefore remain mentally free. And by being mentally free, he desired to be physically free.

If someone came to the field slave and said, “Let’s go, let’s plot to run away,” he would naturally say, “Let’s do it, how soon can we plan?”. We see this in the case Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey, Charles Deslondes, and other slaves who planned mass slave revolts that lead to hundreds and thousands of slaves finding freedom. But if someone came to the house slave and asked him this same question, He’d naturally say, “Go where? What could I do without massa? Where would I live? How would I dress? Who would look out for me?”

The house slave was so brainwashed by his master that he couldn’t even relate to the struggles of the field slaves anymore. Instead of seeing them as his brothers, he saw them as his enemies. And since he didn’t want to lose his role as the house slave, he would sometimes snitch on the field slaves that weren’t doing any work in the fields or trying to plot running away, to gain favor with his master. As you can imagine, this brought about a serious hatred between the field slaves and the house slaves — a hatred that has been passed all the way down to us today.

The house slaves of today are people like Reverend Al Sharpton, John McWhorter, Steve Harvey, Herman Cain, Charles Barkley, Steven A. Smith, and Whoopi Goldberg, who are quick to point to the victim — they’re own people — as the source of the problem, rather than the victimizer — White America. Seeing the victimizer as the victim of those they are victimizing is a classic case of Stockholm syndrome, which is a modern day house slave. And we, the modern day field slaves who work all day for the white man have to put up with both White America’s hatred towards us, as well as our own people’s hatred towards us.

This is why black people as a whole can never seem to unite and build massive wealth together like other nations of people do, because the “house slaves” do all they can to keep the economical power in the hands of massa. Black people who are put in positions of power by White America don’t want to see conscious black people liberate from the white man’s system and succeed on their own because it takes away money from their massa, which takes away money from them. And they ain’t having that, so they do whatever they can to keep us dependent on our oppressors.

You can always spot one of these types of black people out because they want nothing to do with problems or issues facing the people of their skin color. These characteristics are clearly present in many of today’s Black celebrities, especially in the sports arena.

For instance, basketball news analyst Charles Barkley, once stated in a broadcast on TNT that when he played basketball, that was ‘the first time in my life where I didn’t feel Black.’ When he said it, you could see the euphoria in his face as he recalled the feelings he had from ‘escaping’ his blackness. Another example would be golf pro Tiger Woods, who when asked about what His race, went out of his way to construct his own racial group “Cablinasian” a mixture of Caucasian, Black, Indian, and Asian, all for the sake of saying “I am not black.” Then we have one of basketball’s greats, Kobe Bryant, who when asked what he thought about the Miami Heat’s effort to support Trayvon Martin, who was gunned down by (a white man) George Zimmerman, told the media that ‘it didn’t make sense’ to protest for Trayvon Martin, just ‘because I am an African American.’ And the list goes on and on.

As we can see, our most prominent and influential Black athletes of today, who our kids look up to and idolize, have no desire to be or take up for black people. As a result, our youth who desire to be like them end up taking on their characteristics and hating black people too. To sum this section up, I will leave you with the words of W.E.B. Du Bois…

Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.”

The Media’s Excessive Promotion of White Supremacy

One of today’s biggest reasons as to why black people hate black people is stems from media’s promotion of white skin and white features as superior and beautiful and black skin and black features and inferior and ugly, especially among females.

For instance, the standard of beauty in all forms of mainstream media today, is european; meaning white or fair-skinned people with blonde, straight hair. Whether it be in films, TV shows, or any form of in-person entertainment, the dominant portrayal of beauty is european, white!

What this means for black people — women in particular — is that the lighter your skin is, the more you are commercialized as being beautiful or good looking in the media. This white or light-skinned standard of beauty defaults brown and darker skinned women to be less beautiful or ugly in the media. And since the media dictates the culture, in regards to what’s in and what’s not; many black women who are dark in complexion now think of themselves as ugly. As a result, many black women have set out to lighten their skin color and alter their physical features to look european so they can be perceived as beautiful in the eyes of society.

The evidence of this is clearly seen in today’s most popular black celebrities, who have bleached their skin and straightened their hair to be beautiful for our oppressors. Beyonce, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Thelma O’ Kaz, and Tami Roman just to name a few, have all bleached their skin and straighten their hair to look like white people. From a common sense standpoint, any woman who would bleach their skin and alter their hair to look identical to those who are oppressing their people, would be considered crazy, insecure, and in desperate need of psychotherapy. However, since the media promotes these women as being beautiful and successful, society by default agrees with the media, and sees nothing wrong with black women trying to look like white women.

blackwomenwhowannabewhiteConsequently, the media’s ideology of pale-skinned women with straight hair being the standard of beauty, plants roots inside the minds of Black America, to see white people as beautiful and our own people as being ugly. This is why black man date white women, because they’ve been socialized to think that white skin and blonde or straight hair looks better than black skin and kinks. As result, many black women wear blond or straight-haired wigs to look more european because they want to please their black men who think their natural hair looks ugly. Not being able to feel beautiful in her own skin, causes the black women to hate both herself and black men, which forces her to date outside her race as well. And this is why there are so many interracial relationships today, because black people have been systematically programmed to hate each other.

Interracial dating is not just a trend or a fad, its a sign that black people no longer see themselves as beautiful anymore. And when a people no longer think they are beautiful, they integrate with the people they think are beautiful. This is why the black family is rampantly decreasing and interracial marriage among blacks is rampantly increasing. When a black man or women looks in the mirror and doesn’t like their wooly hair, broad noses, and melanin skin; by default they don’t want to bring children in the world that look like them. Therefore, they make it their #1 goal to have children by someone of the race which society deems as the standard of beauty, because they don’t want to hate their children the same way they hate themselves.

To sum this section up, I will leave you with the famous words of Malcolm X…

“You can’t hate the roots of the tree without ending up hating the tree. You can’t hate your origin without ending up hating yourself. You can’t hate the land, your motherland, the place that you come from, and we can’t hate Africa without ending up hating ourselves. The Black man in the Western Hemisphere—North America, Central America, South America, and in the Caribbean—is the best example of how one can be made, skillfully, to hate himself that you can find anywhere on this earth.”


There are many more reasons as to why black people hate each other, but the three that I mentioned above seem to be the most prevalent to me. The self hating Negro is a byproduct of the man-made religion of Christianity, the inherited Stockholm Syndrome and the mainstream media’s excessive, promotion of white supremacy; which all derived from slavery.

In regards to a solution to fixing our self-hatred, I believe the answer is to do what The Most High told us to do in his Torah; to love our neighbors as ourselves (Leviticus 19:18). By neighbor, it means your fellow brothers and sisters; the so-called African Americans. But in order to love our neighbors, we must first learn to love ourselves. And the only way we will learn to love ourselves, is to STOP seeing each other through the eyes of our oppressors. As Marcus Garvey once stated, “we need to remove the kinks from our minds, not our hair.”

With that being said, I want all my black brothers and sisters (no matter how dark or how light) to know that you are the most beautiful people in the world. We are the only people on Earth who share the color of the creator — black. Therefore we are beautiful by nature because we resemble the almighty. So you should NEVER let organized religion, the public school system, or the racist mainstream media influence you to define our people’s beauty by their european standards. We are the original people and moral conduct and standards of beauty should be defined by us!

    Good stuff. But how do you end by quoting the Bible that was/is a white supremacy tool

  • Deanna October 21, 2015, 3:14 pm

    I was not going to leave comment but I cannot believe what I am reading. I want to start with my Family was part of the Undergound Railroad shuffling Slaves to Freedom. Many of my Family Members were born Men & Women of color free but still chose to not forget to help others who wanted to be free. I noticed your picture of yourself & your baby she is as cute as can be. This picture reminds me of my brother (whom you look like) & the picture he took with his baby daughter. The difference is that my brother refuses to date Black Women since he was very young & never thought he should. He has dated mostly White Woman & now his daughter he has ( that he ironically took the same kind of picture with) is with a secret racist Woman from Pakistan. I do not know why she married Black Man when she puts down his hair ( she tried to put down mine but when I had her feel it she became jealous after telling me my hair is more soft & smooth than hers.) When I tried to stick up for him against her he started throwing her hair in my face because her hair has more length, he had the nerve to put me down about hair & my body size ( he is very over weight with serious health issues, I work out several times a week & I eat healthy. He has gym full of equipment but does not use it) I am size nine jeans extra small shirt & I have three children. He to me is the perfect example of how a Black Man should NOT be. He puts down dark skinned People by calling them Mcboo etc. but acts like he cares about the plight of Blacks in America. He goes into Social Media with this attitude thereby blinding the public to who he really is. I on the other hand have never been like but have received the stigma put on me by my own People for things I did not choose. I cannot help the way I look ( hazel eyes light skin) but was forced in the middle of Social Media talk I did not ask for. I have dated Black Men since I was young. I also got abused by Black Men, picked up a smelly disease ( which I am clear & fresh )from a Black Man tried to have a child with a Black Man but yet have been treated the way my Brother should have been treated. After being tricked into getting pregnant I lost the baby due to the overboard abuse I suffered at the hands of my own Black People. I never gave up or did not try to be anything other than Black. I once again have been forced in the middle because of the way I look. I have never dyed my hair Blond or any color for that matter my Mom & Dad did not raise us to pick People over hair or skin color. My Dad said there is no such thing as “good hair” there is straight, curly, thick or course but none is better than the other. My Mom said since we are light skinned we must work extra to prove that we are not “stuck up light skinned” People by being good, kind & respectful. This is what I grew up on. These are the beliefs I had instilled in me. I never knew anything different until 8 years ago. I have never picked Boyfriend,Friends or Occupation because of hair or skin color but now that is all I have to hear about being stuck in the middle. I buy Black dolls Mixed,Asian & White because that teaches them there is more than just one Culture in this World. My children are part Asian but I have taught them as much African American Culture as I did any other culture we have in us. I chose to live in subsidized housing predominate with Africans because I thought I could learn more about their Culture. That did not happen. They pulled my children’s hair, we gave them toys black & white but they broke them & threw them in the yard ( white baby doll was all I could find is because we like them were poor & I had to get them from the thift store. They had Mom AND Dad living with them but did not want to work. They had NEW VEHICLE but I saw their children had no toys. The color of the toys had no precedence. It was that they had no toys & my children wanted to help them. It had nothing to do with color because they broke the black barbies we bought them too.) They tried to use Social Media lies to cover it up. I now have where Black People think I should not be myself who I am born to be because when my hair looks beautiful the way it is they get mad. ( I do not put straighteners in my hair) if I am cheated they feel better but how is that teaching black children to be proud of who they are. It is time to start taking responsibility for our children & teach them how to be themselves & not worry about how somebody else is. It is time to stop listening to the Black People who start trouble pitting Blacks against each other to cover up their own jealousies. I have tried so hard not to hate my own People but as I get pushed out because I can “pass” or do not want to be with a Black Man who wants to change me so we can match. That is not love. I have been looking for answers & I get them. I am NEVER going to have house slave mentality because I it is in my blood to be free. I am not going to do anything but take care of my children & not worry about the weakness or insecurities of any Culture. I do not have to be anything other than myself & teach my children to be proud of who they are BLACK INCLUDED. Black People should not cloud their minds with the excuses because Black History was erased the year it was said do not be proud of who you are but hate other People for who they are & you are not. I never looked at hair, skin color but how you carry yourself, what you are willing to earn through hard work, dedication & not be lazy or want somebody else to do for you.

      Shalom Deanna! Thanks for sharing your testimony with me sista. Believe it or not; I hear stories like yours all the time. This was one of the reasons why I wrote this article – to address the self-hate that’s been programmed inside our minds since birth. There are so many black people today that hate themselves and their people but just don’t know it because they have a low state of consciousness. Meaning, they live life in re-actively based off their mental programming rather than living life proactively based off spiritual awareness. The only way to cure this self hate that dwells within our people is to make them aware of it by presenting facts that awaken their consciousness. Therefore, I will be writing many more articles that cover topics like this to wake our people up. Thanks again for sharing your testimony sista and I pray The Most High be with you in your journey towards truth. Shalom!

    brother thanks for writing this I never understood why black people hated each other I thought it was just rap music causing the problems in the hood and people were just getting rich off of black peoples struggles making us look bad in the music industry like where nothing but crooks and
    and drug dealers and im a blackmale myself having a hard time trying to find a beautyful sister to marry cause hole bullshit selfhate movement i see from other black promoting interracial Dating. it really hurts to be 40 and can’t date your own race of women cuz they have been destroyed by the media.as a black man in America I think segregation should come back I think we should separate from our oppressors that’s the only way to solve this problem with our race so we can survive as a nation.and i also feel we should separate from other blacks like the houseniggas you are talking about like that old saying goes one bad apple spoils a hole bunch once we separate from Judas type of black people are nation will become a strong nation again.

    And another thing black people got to wake up and realize white people are just jealous because of our looks black is beautyful. god has created the most beautiful skin complexion we don’t age bad and we’re not pale like A wrinkle up dog I’m sorry i see no comparisment .i really don’t see white our European looks being attractive I don’t know why my people find white pale skin and stringy hair as a attraction. sometimes I think my people or just dumb and blind wow. I hope we wake up out this stupid shit some day yes really why do you think these crackers hate us but want to date us they love are looks and want to use us for them. its called melon and physical body features that’s all it is.

    • Maurice Lindsay November 12, 2015, 2:35 pm

      Shalom my brotha,

      Yeah, i feel your pain man. I talk to other brothers on a regular basis who feel just like you. It’s becoming harder and harder for both black man and black women to find them a black mate to marry because everybody is following the new trend of interracial dating; not knowing that it is part of the agenda to exterminate the pure black DNA from the Earth. But the reason why hardly anyone can pick up on this is because they have been systematically programmed by the media, schools, and religions that white is superior and black is inferior. And since most of the black people they see on tv such as Empire and reality shows present us in such a negative light; it subconsciously makes them not want to be associated with anything that’s black. But they can’t see it because their conscious is asleep. That’s why it’s on folks like us to bring the truth to light in a way they can relate to so that it will challenge them to rethink what they’ve been taught. Thanks for sharing brotha, I appreciate your comments.

  • Michele Nerlin November 14, 2015, 3:32 am

    You are doing exactly what you are telling others to not do….hating on your own people!! Particularly, successful black people…irony??

    • Maurice Lindsay November 14, 2015, 6:23 pm

      Shalom sista,

      Everyone who knows me knows that I love my people. The reason you think I’m hating on successful black people comes from your idea on what success is. If your idea of success is having the white man give you a TV show on His white-owned network to use your voice to consistently talk bad about your own people but stay silent when it comes to the many injustices that take place on black people very single day – then I totally understand why you think I’m hating on my people.

      You see, I don’t view success as getting a position on a white-owned professional sports team, tv-show, radio-show, or platform. That is not success to me. When White America hands black people on tv, movies, sports or in politics and religion get in positions of power; these people never speak up against the injustices that take place on our people every single day in America. Instead, they do just the opposite. They mostly talk down about us, their own people, while speaking highly of white people. The reason for this is because they don’t own the platform they are on and they could lose their money and power if they spoke up for us. So they are not successful to me. They are sell outs.

      Success to me is coming together on our own and building our own black communities, starting our own black-owned businesses, and doing and taking care of each other without the help or involvement of other races. That is how our ancestors did it in the bible, that is how they did it in Africa, that is how they did in after slavery. And that is success to me. Loving each other the same way we love ourselves and coming together as one in the name of the creator of the heavens and earth is the ultimate success.

    Whites are over the media. The blacks you see are money-changers and don’t care about image. That’s why they get away with pull it pants up this is due to ignorance in the system that’s why the women are pathetic and judgemental as hell. Any black person who stands around and let other blacks get flogged is an ass and traitor. If they attack one of us they attack all of us. That is why their in the school system monitoring students teaching them bully and having them jump through hoops to get them to fail so they can mock and laugh. I’ve heard educators time and time again mock and belittle the brightest students who aren’t white. I have witness notrocities that should be against the law. I have been subjected to abuse by my own relatives and people and have been subjected to a greed and materialistic society that faults others with more wealth more happiness. These are from the descendants of those who STOLE from u!!! That is why your impoverished and by default even the poorest white is rich. If u even look like it becomming successful they really try to harass. Blacks too!!! That why the nation of Islam is STRONG because they stand up for each other even if their wrong. Black society? Excuses beatdowns and oppression. This is decades and years of oppression and brainwashing. The monent blacks realize they are citizens and not just black people is the moment that every white supremacists trash fears. They FEAR from loosing the comforts of life from the what they stole. They reap in destruction they will end in destruction and no amount of yoga and dollars will help you them. That’s why they want to make u suffer, pay u low wages so u can’t survive. Anyone getting paid $10.00 is a crime!!! They don’t want u to succeed which is why they always go out their way to harass u and your children. Their pagan whores from Babylon they don’t care. That’s why they get scared and try to destroy you!!! Now not all whites are bad and have come to the sensation of what they’ve decided done but the majority are surpremist assholes and opportunist. That’s why they leave hate comments and this is exactly why citizens in society have got to start standing up for their fundamental rights. Of course blm will be looked at as an intruder because it is what they fear unity against the system they established for themselves. Fuck the phonies and fuck the system. They force us and subjected us to things they wouldnt put their own children through. Be warn many of them are pedophiles and haters that is why u see the men aggressive and the women coy and snake like. They are the true trash. That s why neighbors are enemies especially in all white neighbors. They are united in a common interest and that interest is to get ahead and surprise u anyway they can. They look at gentle blacks as mild and weak because we the people of wisdom do not fit in the cast-hole of wild and obnoxious. This is what they want u to be because they look at it as free entertainment and re-enfkrcement of the ministerial/Stockholm effect in no thanks to the comedians who dance and embrass off the backs of u and I because it makes then rich. Stop buying rap that degrades u and TV shows that show u as mindless animals. You are not mindless wake up from this pitiful white surpremist curse. Also stop favoring each other on skin and looks black women you are not solving the problems u are adding to it. Start promoting for more businesses and education that will help and benefit u. Dont listsen to white dress they are loaded on with jealousy meds and b.s.

    Excellent read and very informative! I live in south west London, England. It is so rare to see black couples on the street, it is becoming so rare to see fully black kids. I have heard black men say quite proudly to their white mates “black women don’t appeal to me.” A lot of black women are being forced to date outside their race. It is an epidemic and it is not slowing down!

    • Donnie November 15, 2016, 5:56 pm

      I am a white woman and I don’t understand why that is. In my opinion black women are often very beautiful whether they are light or very dark skinned. I happened upon this site out of curiousity of other races opinions and experiences. It’s sad seeing so much hate and ignorance out there from whites and blacks. Most whites that I know do not want to opress anyone. There are far too many untruths and one way opinions coming from everywhere and racism is being demonstrated by some whites and some blacks. It just seems to be human nature but don’t think all whites are racist against blacks or vice versa.

    How can you say that ” we are the only people on Earth who share the color of the Creator – black.” When no man has seen God?

    • Maurice Lindsay August 25, 2016, 3:29 pm

      It’s true that no one has seen The Most High but many people have seen his son, YAHUSHA (Jesus), and according to scripture the son was made in the father’s image… and his son is black.

        thank for the truth brother

    I really thought you would give me some insight to this question. I was wrong.
    I agree with you on a high level but when do we as black people realize we have have to break the cycle? When do we take responsibility for our own actions?
    Maybe we shouldn’t call our babies bad from the time they’re born. Black parents think it’s acceptable and fuuny to call our children bad. Don’t we know the power of speaking something into existence? How can a 2 week old infant be bad? So there’s no surprise that the child grows up thinking they’re bad and behaving badly. That scenario (which is extremely common) has nothing to do with God or white people. It the very very least, I as a mother only want better for my children.
    Secondly, what do God and white people have to do with applying for a job and doing the bare minimum? We are not slaves anymore. I realize that statement can be challenged so let me just say, we get paid for our work now and no one can stop us from quitting or bettering ourselves. Hope your still with me… So, since we all are supposed to contribute to society, why is it ok to get a job and then perform badly at it? Another question, why is it ok to not have a job? Mental illness is real and prevents many people from being productive, but what’s everyone else’s excuse?
    Lastly, choices we make… we as individuals have control over our actions. Something as simple as a common greeting between two strangers involves a choice. We as black women women in particular hate eachother so much that we can barely smile and greet one another sincerely. Unfortunately men are the reason for this hatred but we stl have a choice and the power to choose the high road.
    I’m saddened by your judgement against Steve Harvey, Charles Barkley and Whoopi. They are helping black people and care about us. It’s time we help ourselves man. Now is the time we choose to better ourselves and our children. Stop blaming and start changing.

      Shalom Grace,

      I respect your OPINION and appreciate you taking the time share your comments about my article. However, I read over your statements and they did not address the subject of the title of this article, which is “Why Black People Hate Black People’. My article is a breakdown of why we as a people hate on each other so much and gives facts on how we developed this mindset. Your comments did not address anything I wrote about in this article, except for my criticism of Steve Harvey, Charles Barkley and Whoopi. And the fact that you think that those people care about black people – even though they each have went on record to say they don’t – tells me that you are deceived sister.

      When you get a chance, read this article here – http://www.truthovertradition.com/still-slaves/. Hopefully, it will further explain how our minds have been colonized to think European; which is why we see each other the way white people see us; causing us to hate each other.

      Thanks again for your comments.

      • Grace August 28, 2016, 9:36 pm

        Hi Maurice.
        I meant no disrespect. I said I agree with what you wrote on a high level. Ur right. While I was writing my response I realized I wasn’t addressing the “why”. Again, I agree with what you said for the most part. But now, how do we fix it? Please give me your thoughts.
        Ok, black Americans have suffered greatly from Jim Crow laws, Willy Lynch tactics, white religion and fake activists. But what are we doing now to change it? We both agree the cause of it was out of our control but don’t we have the control back now? What do we do to fix the self hate? I think it’s starts with us and the conscious decisions we make. Knowing why is very important but it’s only the first step in solving any problem. Not caring about one another is feeding right into what the white people wanted in the first place. Why don’t we see it?
        I’ll check out the article you mentioned. Btw, Charles Barkley’s interview with Roland Martin on TV One is something you might want to watch.
        Thanks for responding to my response. Lol Dealing with the effects of self hate from multiple people is a lil overwhelming right now. My daughter just started at an HBCU. The negative vibes and ignorant attitudes are abundant in every department. I don’t know if she’s gonna stay the whole year. I can’t let that negative thinking affect my child. I wanted and expected so much better from a black educational institution.
        When we know better, we do better…
        Take care.

        • Maurice Lindsay August 29, 2016, 9:07 pm

          Shalom Grace.

          Thanks again for your comments. I didn’t take any offense by them; I actually appreciate the (online) dialogue. And I do agree with you on the point of we need to take responsibility for our own actions BUT you must understand the systematic plan that has been place for the last 100 years to keep us docile, divided, and deceived in order to understand the reason why we act the way we do. If you don’t understand the system of racism white supremacy then you won’t understand why we are so divided and docile. Everything starts with the mind. And our mind has been indoctrinated to see ourselves as inferior to other races and everything in America’s system upholds and promotes everything that supports this indoctrination. Therefore, we as a people must be re-educated – of who we are, where we came from, and learn the code of moral ethics and self-love that we had before we got here – in order for us to exemplify the accountability and righteousness that we once displayed as race.

          To help you understand the points i made above, i suggest reading this books below:

          1. The Mis-Education of The Negro
          2. Brainwashed
          3. Black Skin, White Masks

          These books will enlighten you on the massive programming that has been done to our minds as the cause of why we as a people act the way we do today.

          Thanks again for your comments and take care sista!

    I just stumbled across this article online. This is an important subject to me – Black self-hate. I’ve been on a quest lately to understand the origins of Black self hate.

    Maurice, I agree with your sentence, “there are many more reasons why Black people hate each other” In my experience, this is a complex subject and issue. It can vary from person to person.

    But the root cause of Black self-hate, as we know it, is always internalized racism and white supremacy.

    How and why a person internalizes racism and white supremacy is varied.

    A person can be from an all Black environment -with all Black images and all Black media, and a Black deity and somehow still internalize racism and white supremacy. Crazy isn’t it? The reverse is also true…

    It really comes down to how an individual processes and internalizes these factors.

    I also like that your article, and comments, address this word – consciousness. I believe a person’s attitudes about their race can change. There is hope.

    One of the best things we can do is to question our thoughts and actions. I believe white supremacy needs to be harassed and interrogated. We need to profile it, and stop and frisk it every day.

    With that type of mindset, we can awaken our consciousness to laden racism and white supremacy within us. Then we can address it.

    A couple more things I would add:

    One of the greatest sources of Black self hate is not recognizing the diversity of the Black experience. We aren’t all the same. We don’t like all the same things. There’s no one way to be Black. Some of the people we call house Negroes and Uncle Toms are in some cases a part of the diversity of the Black experience and expression. We hate and hurt each other by insisting on and experiencing one type of Blackness.

    Lastly, the idea of a colorblind society has made many of us blind to blackness. When people attempt to be colorblind without the context of racial awareness, this leads to a blindness to blackness. A white supremacy society will do that every time. Colorblind people without a racial context will eventually only see, and experience, whiteness.

    This is an important topic. It’s more important than people give attention to, or realize.

    I appreciate you bringing it forward. – Sam

      • Sabrina X November 1, 2016, 2:39 am

        I appreciate your perspective! The biggest issue I have had with black inferiority is what I call livestock ownership branding — OUR European slave family names. How can any of us escape or minimize the power of European’s superiority when there has been little effort to change our names? In a sense, we still belong to Europeans. Now that is an unconscious phenomenon no one seems to speak on. I have the greatest respect for Mohammad Ali, Malcom X, and many others who knew that inheritors of slave names can never be mentally/psychologically free by adopting and living by the oppressor’s name.

        • Maurice Lindsay November 1, 2016, 12:40 pm

          Shalom Sabrina. I agree wholeheartedly with your take on us still having European last names. I too, have a great respect for Malcolm and Ali for them choosing to more cultural names over their european names. I have also done the same, changing my name to Ma’orYahu over 2 years ago to adopt the name more similar to my Hebrew ancestors. I only use my former name online and in my books because many people know me by that name and i want them to be able to find me when searching. Eventually, i will remove my former name and only go by my Hebrew name, when the time is right. But i totally understand where you are coming from sista and appreciate you taking the time to comment on my article. Take care!

          • Sabrina X November 2, 2016, 3:02 am

            In a perplexed state of mind about black self hate — I googled the thought of black on black hate and came across your article. It has bothered me all of my life. The worst has been the hate perpetuated in my family. Since we were children, there has been no tolerance among my siblings. However, it plagues my family at many levels. We have a large family but have never had a family reunion. It seems very few are conscious of the lack of familial love and most attend church every Sunday. I understand the effects of slavery is the cause of black hatred/pain as well as the false teachings of Christianity. Additionally, it is now believed that black pain is part of the DNA, that is to say emotional and physical pain passed from ancestors. Further, it is no wonder why we may never escape such deep pain unless we make a conscious effort to do so. When we choose to love ourselves, our families and all others, then we begin to rewrite our DNA for future generations.

            Peace onto you!

          • Maurice Lindsay November 2, 2016, 2:14 pm

            Shalom Sabrina, I totally feel where you are coming from. I have a huge family as well and they are also full of self-hate, but they don’t realize it. Although we do have family reunions, the love is not their due to mostly everyone’s unconscious inner self-hate for themselves. So I can relate to you on this point, and i think most conscious people in the black community can relate to this as well.

            In regards to your point about the new statistics coming out about emotional and physical pain being passed down from our ancestors, that is true. It’s called “generational curses”. The emotional trauma, self-hatred, and sinful lifestyles that our ancestors piked up during slavery were passed down generationally to us. But this is no coincidence, this was prophesied about in our ancestor’s ancient writings of the torah. In Deuteronomy 28:15-68, it foretells us of us going into slavery and the many other generational curses that would later take hold of us as a people, that we are suffering from today. Our writings also tells us why these curses would come about and what we can do to break them in Leviticus 26. And that is what many of us are doing today, following the blueprint of our ancient writings to break the generational curses on our families. I suggest you read those writings when you get a chance, and read them with a clear mindset without any religious interpretation, and you will see that those texts are specifically pertaining to us.

            I appreciate your comments and I enjoyed this digital dialogue. Take care my sista. Shalom!

    I was born into the global power elite, I can tell you white supremacy is a scam we use to destroy resistance to our New World Order. Look at even so called “modern” military technology, in the 1940s and 1950s we and the American government stole as much of it as we could from a still Negro-dominated Europe and Africa and gave it to the stupid Nephelim ( whites) to destroy civilization for us.

    Whites are and have always been SCAPEGOATS. Nothing more or less.

    • anon January 22, 2017, 5:22 am

      This is an interesting comment. Please elaborate…

  • Colette February 26, 2017, 11:42 pm

    Thanks for the infro. I experience non unity from young African American today. They don’t have a clue. True black history is not taught in the school. Most of them only know about Martin L.King and now Obama. They don’t know how it lead up from slavery til now. Noone is teaching them. I teach my grands. About slaves more black history is needed.

    • Maurice Lindsay March 1, 2017, 11:22 pm

      Yes mam, I agree 100%. No one is teaching them, so those of us who know have to teach them. That is the only way they will learn.

  • Bee Curious April 15, 2017, 8:42 am

    This article is extremely interesting yet a little distorted. Let’s just say that slavery never took place and that we all live in Africa amongst our own respected tribe or country. Did all of those tribes or country get together and sing and dance every Sunday? No, they’re fighting and having wars with other tribes. People need to wake up, if you think that all the Africans in Africa get along and support each other is a straight lie. They’re still enslaving other tribes and countries, still fighting each other, because of different ideologies.
