A.A. Rashid Presents: The Blackest Bible You Never Seen

If 24 hours separates an intellectual paradise from an ecclesiastical purgatory, then The Blackest Bible You Never Seen is a Day Up from hell.

Heaven is a relative state of mind, and in his latest E-Lecture the Qabala god, A.A. Rashid, escorts his viewing audience through the pearly gates of understanding with contagious passion and ideological conviction.

“What is the African American experience regarding his initiation?” Rashid rhetorically asks his audience during his July 11th  lecture in Houston, Texas. “Where does he go to become a man? Every other culture in the world has an initiation. You go to the Twa people—who are colloquially called the pygmies—they still have a ritual where they initiate the young men for five months.

Do you know what that is? A lot of us can’t even do nothing for two hours straight. You tell someone to sit down and read for two hours straight, or turn your phone off and just shut up, a lot of people would have a problem with that…What is the culture of the African American? Where are our initiations? The African American experience is profound. You were manufactured as part of a commercial construct. It is very interesting that you are still here existing with pride.”

In this video presentation Rashid extrapolates on one of his most consistent messages to his growing following in recent years, which is that all of the ancient expressions of collective cultural psychology—which many of us call religions—can address the inherent needs of Africans throughout the diaspora. According to Rashid, this requires that the signs and symbols of these philosophical models are processed by the individual so as to ensure collective prosperity in all avenues of human endeavor.   

“How you perceive yourself [determines] your mental health,” says the Red House founder, and Freemason, who advocates joining societies with secrets. “You live in your thoughts. The Blackest Bible You Never Seen requires that you and I challenge every letter, every world, inside the [literary] construct to find the best modalities to use in any religion. You should all participate in learning all religions because it gives you a narrative to deal with every single culture in the world.”

Rashid is an interesting figure. He is a man, who over the course of his lecturing career, has ubiquitously lived his life in between the pillars of mercy and severity. He has the introverted mental framework of the brooding intellectual and the shaman.  However, he exhibits an uncanny ability to speak to large audiences in the idiom of the street, or the Ivy League lecture hall in an extroverted way.

“The young people are the ones who bring your brother out [to lecture],” says Rashid in front of his lecture podium in Houston. “I have to talk nice, and be nice to the elders, ‘hotep’ them and put on dashikis to get them to pull brother Rashid out. But the young people get it because they can look past all of the vestigial elements because they are strivers. They not hatin’ sitting back waiting for you to make a mistake. They lookin’ to get game so that they can take it and run with it. Young people keep me relevant. I got young people at Ralph Lauren who are designing the stuff these negroes are going to wear for the next three years in our school. There are young people at Apple, designing apps and all that. Brothers and sisters all over the world, Africa, everywhere, who are paying attention to what we are doing. You're an exceptional person if youve ever even heard of me, because there are so many chambers to get to just to get to mine. ” 

Within Rashid’s two extremes there are many mindscapes of hidden potential, which may explain why he is actually expanding in his creative breadth at 40 years of age, a time when many other men are past their artistic prime. Rashid, who told me that he just started rapping about three years ago, has recorded impressive hip hop tracks like “Fard Fila,” and “Randy Savage” while producing imaginative graphic artwork to promote his merchandise and social events.

His latest offering, The Blackest Bible You Never Seen, is a valuable addition to the video library of longtime students, and a formidable introduction for new ones who have grown weary of conspiracy laden narratives and are in search of practical applications for personal empowerment.

The Magical Negro: Understanding an Archetype from the White Collective Unconscious

“The present research provides the first systematic empirical investigation into superhumanization, the attribution of supernatural, extrasensory, and magical mental and physical qualities to humans. Five studies test and support the hypothesis that White Americans superhumanize Black people relative to White people. Studies 1–2b demonstrate this phenomenon at an implicit level, showing that Whites preferentially associate Blacks versus Whites with superhuman versus human words on an implicit association test and on a categorization task. Studies 3–4 demonstrate this phenomenon at an explicit level, showing that Whites preferentially attribute superhuman capacities to Blacks versus Whites, and Study 4 specifically shows that superhumanization of Blacks predicts denial of pain to Black versus White targets.”

--A Superhumanization of Bias in Whites' Perception of Blacks
The magical negro is mysterious. He rarely talks, but when he does, he is always self-composed and brimming with worldly wisdom. Despite having a far more cultivated understanding of life and its core meaning than most people he encounters, The Magical Negro never uses it to benefit himself, much less exploit those who have not reached his depth of awareness.

Instead, The Magical Negro happily resigns himself to being the willing subordinate to their bumbling white understudy. They are always happy to  play the role of the genie who grants the wishes of feeble masters.

In his book The Secret Science, Rosicrucian author John Baines writes that:

 “In ancient times, extra-terrestrial men visited our planet who were physically the same as we are, but otherwise extraordinarily evolved. During their lengthy evolution these men had achieved the permanent incorporation within themselves of many of the qualities of the Great Architect and Sublime Alchemist of the Universe…The beings left descendants on our planet…these “children of the stars” are the true and authentic MEN, as opposed to the humanized animals of terrestrial origin…Animal-terrestrial humanity has always FEARED, RESPECTED and HATED those who came from beyond. They instinctively see something strange and unknown in them…The great struggles of humanity shows us this conflict between animal darkness and divine light.” 

The caps in the Baines quote were added by me for emphasis. It is totally relevant to the Black man in North America, who is from the fallen remnant of God’s descendants. This is why he can be imitated across the globe, yet there are so many who do not feel even the slightest empathy when he is gunned down in the street by cops and buried in a shallow grave dug by the U.S. public school system, mass media, and judicial system.

The Black man isn’t despised because of his skin color. His skin color is merely a marker that allows others to correctly identify him as a descendant of the gods. In his skin color and hair texture he looks strikingly different from other races of men because he is not from planet Earth as they are. All traditional African religions speak of origins beyond the stars.

Perhaps the first paragraph quoted from A Superhumanization of Bias in Whites' Perception of Blacks will offer far greater insight on a topic that I am barely addressing. The collaborative study initiated by professors from Northwestern University and the University of Virginia has been made available to you by Mind Glow Media via Sage Publications. The Magical Negro seen in movies marks a clever attempt made by Hollywood to acknowledge an inherent divinity, while at the same time promoting the idea that it should solely be used to serve others at the expense of self and kind.
