The Black Identity Crisis

Transcript:

You know, it’s just interesting how so many blacks, they know they’re
somebody, but not exactly who they are, and I’m just coming from the aspect
of how some Brothers walk, we add a little swagger, and Sisters do too, and
jargon and gestures, and everything else.You can tell, it’s like, this person has confidence and they believe in
themselves, but some don’t know who they are, and I say that in reference
to the word of God. Because see, so many blacks have come from the slavery
and were told that “you’re this” and “you’re that,” and didn’t know who
were they were, and had to just believe whatever the master told them or
whatever their culture or their environment or neighborhood, whatever the
family told them, who they are and what they’re going to be about. Yet,
when you go to a canon of scripture, then you can identify with who you
really are.And they were always in the Bible, men of African descent, throughout the
Bible from Genesis to the Revelations, some eighty percent of the
characters in the canon of scripture were African descent. And we just need
to understand, Peter was saying that we’re a chosen generation, a holy
nation, God’s own special treasure, peculiar people, we need to know who we
are in the sight of God. You know, we’re blessed coming in and going out,
we’re champions and kings, and priests, we’re more than conquerers, and
that’s who we identify with.

How did God see us and not how did man put on us, “you’re shiftless, you’re
lazy” and all these stereotypes and so forth concerning black people. But
hey, no, black people are a prized possession. You know they used to say,
God loves black people too. And that’s not right either. You’re not an
afterthought. He loves black people period, let’s just leave it right
there. Period. Just like he loves everybody. He loves black people, period,
not “too” or “also” like some kind of afterthought.
