The Southern Truth
By Gloria Zuurveen, PACE NEWS, Editor-in-Chief
The word I heard is that the famous basketball player, Kyrie Irving, has apologized and gave in so that he could keep on playing and dribbling that ball before he fall.
Yes, he apologized before he fall out of grace and can no longer run in that NBA race.
Irving, a star guard for the Nets is accused of posting an anti-semitic link for the film “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America” on Twitter . An Amazon description says the film “uncovers the true identity of the Children of Israel.” As of this post today, Amazon has yet to be called to the carpet like Irving for anti-semitism and it distributes and sell the film ensuring it gets to Irving and millions of others to watch it for a fee. Yet, here you have a young impressionable Black man coming into his own as a star player for the Nets and he is curious about his origin here in America and was doing what many black girls and boys are told most of their lives and that is to stay in school and get a good education and serve the community. He was doing just that, educating himself, when searching for more information about his heritage that he thought interesting and informative and subsequently posted the same link “Hebrews to Negroes:Wake Up Black America, based on Ronald Dalton’s book series of the same name, the film aims to prove the Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI) belief that certain people of color, including Black Americans, are the true descendants of the biblical Israelites to others. Yet, he was made to apologize and to change his tone so that he could stay in the NBA power zone. Thank you Kyrie.
You tried your best and you have the support of all the rest. Thank you for shining a light and showing us the way. Now the truth is out and we can now shout and come together and know that the truth has been revealed and that there is a much bigger picture for all of us to see the truth which is our history and for Black people especially. History is vital and so important and its has so much value to give any people a light away from darkness and to prevent the dreadful destiny of many who faced the dreadful and awful reign of the hooded riders in the night with torches and lights with rope in hands seeking to find a tree high and lifted up to hang not one for religion but for simply being who they could only be, Black in America, and this too is our history and it is important because it didn’t happen in another country far away from here but it happen in North America with proof from geography and DNA which are now widely laid out and on display in this movie and book which is even on streaming TV for all to see this legal, historical, and powerful movie.
Thank you Kyrie. Thank you for standing your ground if only for a while it was a necessary play with remarkable sound. You are a star guard, not only the Nets, but for Black people in a very special way. We love you Kyrie and we shall carry on and heed your words of truth and speak it with power now that you have lit the light it is now the people’s fight. The Bible, in the book of John’s gospel chapter 8 verse 31 and 32 Jesus is speaking to those Jews who believed on him said, “If you continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Kyrie was searching for truth so that he could be free and to live an abundant life of freedom knowing that being a Jew is apart of his DNA. But it appears that Kyrie is made to apologize for simply linking a message of truth that he thought was educational and informational especially since it was on Jeff Bezos’ Amazon, a trusted world-wide distributor, and it continues to be sold today. It is selling fast as it should. But what’s wrong with this picture?
If it is a very big problem for Kyrie to link then I ask the question, “Why is it that Amazon gets a chance to distribute it?” This appears to be illegal censorship and it is a reminder of the the movie 1984 by George Orwell about the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviors within society. However, that was a movie and this is real. It is time to watch “Hebrews to Negroes:Wake Up Black America, ” reel. Get the movie, read the book and better yet watch it over the holidays and family gatherings. It is history and it is our story and to Kyrie, thank you and the truth shall set you free too.
