I’ve noticed in this forum (and others just like it) that the only African traditional religion ever discussed is Egyptian/Kemetic theology. Not that I have anything against that belief system, but it is/was not the only religion practiced in Africa. Furthermore, the “blackness” of Egypt (and other Northern African countries for that matter) is highly debatable anyway. Granted, according to American standards (where one drop of black blood makes you black), Egyptians (ancient and present day) are Black. However, it must be stated for the record that Egyptians are of a mixed ancestry. Black Africans live below the Sahara. I’m sure that many will disagree with me on that point, so let me get to my next point. The greatest percentage of Africans enslaved for the “New World” labor came from West Africa. So why does no one ever want to discuss any of the religions of Sub-Saharan Africa, or West Africa (which is were most African Americans come from)? Wouldn’t it make more sense to discuss the Yoruba religion (for example) if we were really interested in discussing the beliefs of our ancestors? Why does no one ever want to discuss the religions of Africans in the diaspora like African-Caribbean religions? Just something to think about.
