Hebrew Israelite groups gather and proselytize in metropolitan areas. This fact makes the Negroes of the Western Hemisphere Israelites by lineal descent as well. And, the Ark of the Covenant is believed to still be protected by true Israelite Levites in some mountain stronghold in Ethiopia. ALL BLACK PEOPLE WITH WOOLY HAIR ARE THE DESCENDENTS OF THE KINGDOM OF JUDAH, THE DESCENDENTS OF THE FIRST JEWS.
While being sensitive to the concern of African American identity, I reject the constructed identity of the Black Hebrew Israelites. We are not affiliated with any Hebrew Israelite groups or organizations, nor any Churches or other Religious institutions. We know Israel did NOT keep God's laws and commandments so that means NONE of the blessings are upon the true Israelites.
Equally hated are "fraudulent" Jews, "the synagogue of Satan." They're closely followed in no particular order by Asians, promiscuous black women, abortionists, continental Africans (who, according to the extremist Israelites, sold the lost tribes of Israel, who were black, to European slave traders), and gay people, who according to extremist Israelites should all be put to death.
The ancestors of today's Jews are not Israelites but are Khazarians. They are much maligned by the African American Christian establishment, though they take literally the symbolic identification of the traditional black church with the plight of the enslaved Israelites golden girdle in the Bible.

FACT IS, ISRAEL IS A GERMAN WORD AND THE GERMANS LIVED IN CANAAN DURING BIBLICAL TIMES” AND WERE INVADED BY THE WILD NOMAD TRIBE, THE JEWS. Finally, even if there were proof that all African Americans were descendants of the Israelites, they would still need to surrender their lives to Jesus in order to obtain salvation.
While many Black Hebrew Israelites do not claim to be racists, or to hate someone based on skin color, in practice, these Hebrew Israelites do not act this way. Literary critics suggest that Abraham , Isaac , and Jacob may once have been the patriarchs of separate tribes who were later fused into one "lineage" reflecting the growing unity of the "Hebrew" people.
Now nothing more is known of him, but his surname "Niger" was common in the Roman world, as the People's New Testament says, "As Niger means 'black,' some have fancied that he was an African, but Niger was as common a Roman surname as Black is now." (emphasis added).
The scriptures and history proves that these people claiming to be direct descendants of the Ancient Hebrews are actually not. These people make up the multitudes of Israelites, which Betty Rhodes refers to as 'the-red-thread' the blood line people, and include all tribes descending from Jacob's twelve sons and one daughter, Dinah.
