Wild n Out host Nick Cannon was recently fired from Viacom for saying on a recent podcast, “Black People are the true Jews”. A comment very common with the cult, The Hebrew Israelites. After being fired Nick admitted to his own “ignorance” and vowed to educate himself on the true history of the Jewish people.
In this article, I will attempt to give a quick review of where the Jewish and Black people derive based on the historical account found in the Hebrew scriptures of the Old Testament and the teaching of Tom Bradford of torahclass.com.
The Flood and Noah’s Ark
After the flood in the Book of Genesis chapters 7,8 & 9, Noah was obviously disturbed by what just happened, water rained from the earth for months and killed everyone and everything in sight! (Gen. 7:4) Of course before this, there was no such thing as rain. Water came from the earth in a form of a mist to water the land. (Gen. 2:6)
Noah got drunk with wine, not grape juice, in order to cope with this global aqua pandemic. You would think he would be so spiritual that he didn’t need any wine, but Noah was human and kept it real. We are not always spiritual in our reactions to tragedy, are we?
Noah’s Three Sons
Noah had three sons that repopulated the whole earth. (Gen. 9:19) While Noah was asleep (drunk) his grandson, Canaan, son of Ham, saw Noah’s nakedness and told the others, shaming his father. When Noah woke up from his hangover, he knew within his spirit what had happened and pronounced a curse over Ham, a blessing over Shem, and a blessing upon Japeth.
“And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. Then he said:
“Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brethren.” “Blessed be the Lord, The God of Shem, And may Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth, And may he dwell in the tents of Shem; And may Canaan be his servant.”Genesis 9:18-27
The Racial Breakdown
The descendants of Ham populated Africa who suffered years of slavery as servants of Shem and Yefet (Japeth, father of the White Europeans).
And so we’ll find Israel either conquering, or being conquered, by the descendants of Ham. The people of Egypt come from Ham; and, interestingly, so do the Philistines.Bradford, Tom “The Accursed Line of Ham: Genesis Chapter 9:20-27”
- Shem became the father of the Jews, Orientals, and Arabs.
Yefet was the branch of the family which would “enlarge”…that is, grow greatest in population and wealth.
Yefet is the ancestor of the Romans, the Greeks, and most of the European peoples, who are the ancestors of the earliest American Colonists.“The Accursed Line of Ham: Genesis Chapter 9:20-27”
So with the understanding that the Jewish people are from Shem and the Africans and African Americans are from Canaan, there’s no way they could be the same people! Do you know any black people that speak Hebrew? Nick Cannon spoke out of ignorance as a result of following an angry cult religious group The Hebrew Israelites rather than learning hebrew history straight from the Bible.
