Peace and Blessings Family,

Brother Tribal House said in another thread the following:


From what I found 80% of blacks identify as christian, 10% as catholic so about 90% christian actually. 5% muslim, so the remainder 5% being everything else including myself in that remainder 5%.


Prior to the above, i don't believe i've ever seen any percentages regarding such things.

90% is a very big number. If it is true, for those who abhor Christians, do you realize that's 90% of your own people?!

Can we unite, overcome, do anything substantive, without 90% of our people? Or even 95%, as many feel disdain for Muslims as well.

Can we afford to throw the Christian Sister or Brother away, or must we figure out a way for us all to work together?

Can the remaining 5% ... those that fall in the "everything else" category ... do it all?

I'd imagine that the last 5%, the "everything else", is divided amongst several different paths, that don't all agree with each other.

Reducing even further, any hope of collective unity, if the majority are rendered useless.

90% of Black People are Christians? That's an astounding number.

I wonder how close to true, it is.

Love You!

:heart:

Brother Afru Shukuwr ... good point and question.

Unfortunately though, even if that number is true, we don't act in any kind of united way.

Maybe this is more evidence, that the uniting factor must be something other than Spirituality / Religion.

I don't know ... very interesting indeed.

Thanks for sharing.

:heart:

Uniting everyone is impossible unless everyone is going to be a slave.

Some of us were not born to be spiritual and are here to help stop or regress the upliftment of our minds.

And people are on different levels of spirituality. And when uniting is spoke on it needs to be clarified what is meant. Most of the time it never is and thats why the notion is just thrown out there by supremacy people. It causes emotion but thrawted action or action that is controlled.
Is it economic uniting, religion, spiritual, social, etc.? What are we looking for?
If its spiritual it makes no sense for me to lose my consciousness in order to be in line or unite with someone else living on a totally lower vibration.
All of those other kind of uniting is very minor. There needs to be unification with the spirit people of the time and that is automatically done.
When Dark people ruled the world there was unification because we were operating under divine law with ancestors in Europe, America, Kemet, etc.

Well, of course, any statistic is not conclusive but can be used as a general overview.

Now, 80 to 90 percent may be a little high; but, statistically, Christianity, and all it's denominations/sects, is the largest religion, worldwide.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
