Minister Calls for Easter "Rap Revival"

Saying that Hip Hop  has swayed from its spiritual path , a NC minister is calling for a "Rap Revival" this Easter weekend.
 
Minister Paul Scott , founder of the Messianic Afrikan Nation is calling on the Hip Hop Nation to return to its spiritual roots. He says that Hip Hop culture is spiritually based  but today's artists have deviated from that path and only worship the almighty dollar. Scott is asking that Hip Hop artists make a "covenant" this weekend to return Hip Hop to its spiritual genesis.
 
For many fans, Hip Hop and spirituality had become a topic of a bygone era but the recent controversy following Jay Z's wearing a Five Percent Nation medallion at a Brooklyn Nets basketball game has sparked a renewed interest in the subject.
 
During the early years of Hip Hop there was a spiritual component, and the persuit of Knowledge was a key element. Rappers, such as KRS One, Brand Nubian and The X-Clan included forms of spirituality in their music. However, Scott argues that the rap music of today is spiritually void.
 
"Somebody stole the soul of Hip Hop, its time for us to take it back," says Scott. " We need a  Rap-ture."
 
Min. Paul Scott aka TRUTH Minista is based in Durham NC. In 1999, Scott coined the phrase "Afrikan Liberation Theology" which he says is the "Black Liberation Theology of the Hip Hop generation."

Minister Says Boycott Son of God Movie

Saying that the image of a white Jesus is racist and offensive to African Americans, a NC minister is calling for a national boycott of the soon to be released "Son of God" movie.

Minister Paul Scott of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation says that he is outraged that even in 2014, many people  in this country still promote the, historically,  inaccurate image of a Caucasian Christ. He is asking that the black community not support the film which is to be released on February 28th, which, ironically is the last day of Black History Month.

Although the issue of the black ethnicity of Jesus dates back as far as the 19th century, courtesy of such clergymen as Bishop Henry McNeal Turner, the issue generated new interest last December when Fox News host  Megyn Kelly announced to children  that Santa Claus and Jesus were white men.

"I guess the white Christian Right needs a white Jesus to save them from a black president," says Scott.


Scott who coined the phrase Afrikan Liberation Theology (the Black Liberation Theology for the Hip Hop generation) in 1999, has appeared on numerous national talk shows promoting the idea of a black Messiah. His controversial essay "Hip Hop Children of a Lesser God" is featured in the anthology  "Black Church and Hip Hop Culture: Toward Bridging the Generational Divide."

Openly Black

Openly Black

            by TRUTH Minista Paul Scott



You know I'm proud to be black ya'll/And that's a fact ya'll"
                                                                         
                                                                Proud to Be Black- RunDMC





Inspired by Michael Sam's recent announcement that he plans to be the football's  first openly gay player, Tyrone "Mustafa" Jackson decided that he wanted to make history, too. Yesterday, at a press conference,  Jackson announced to the world that he wanted to be America's first "openly black" hockey player. While Sam's announcement was met with cheers and letters of congratulations, Mustafa's announcement was met with boos  and "go back to Africa" tweets...

Although many folks have applauded Michael Sam's announcement that he wants to be the NFL's first openly homosexual player, one has to wonder what America's reaction would be to an openly pro-black athlete.

Now,  when I say "openly black" I'm not talking about "Barack Obama black." I'm talking about "Huey P. Newton in a wicker chair with an African spear  black". No, I'm not talkin' about "Bill Cosby black," either. I'm talking about " Angela Davis afro with the black fist  afro pick black." And I definitely don't mean , Hip Hop artist, "Drake black", I mean, " 1990 Ice Cube Amerikkka's Most Wanted black."

Since childhood, most of us have been taught to be undercover black militants. We have been warned to keep the black rage that burns deep inside of us, on the down low.  We cannot risk committing the unpardonable sin of offending white folk. So, we keep who we really are locked deep inside, only letting a little  melanin leak out during Black History Month and Kwanzaa.

Black professional athletes are no different. 

Now, there have been some overtly black professional athletes in our history, but it has been a minute. And one must admit, the pro-black jock wasn't exactly met with open arms.

Your grandparents might remember when reporters refused to call the heavy weight champion of the world ," Muhammad Ali"  but insisted on calling him by his slave name," Cassius  Clay."  Or maybe they can tell you about the blacklisting of John Carlos and Tommie Smith for having the audacity to throw up the infamous Black Power fist during the 1968 Olympics.

Ask your parents about the time that Craig Hodges, of the '92 NBA champs, Chicago Bulls, had the nerve to visit George Bush at the White House, sportin' a dashiki and holding a letter complaining about how the Prez dissed  African Americans with his domestic policies.

I don't recall too many Americans calling these guys heroes and wanting to throw a ticker tape parade.

Let's face it. America is scared of a straight up, no- holds -barred black man. While a Brotha showing his feminine side will be called a role mode, the Brotha that emits too much testosterone will be villainized as a thug, ala Seattle Seahawk, Richard Sherman.

And it's not just mano-a-mano  type action that gets love, either. Wilt Chamberlain was considered the Man of the Year, when he announced that he had slept with over 20,000 women. Also, how many reality shows have you seen with athletes talking about how they pop bottles and make it rain in the club. Our athletes are able to talk about any and everything except a black social, economic or political agenda.

Seems like many black athletes have chosen to keep their blackness locked in the closet.

We must remember that at one point baseball legend, Jackie Robinson, had a beef with Malcolm X. Also, while Muhammad Ali was denouncing Uncle Sam for his treatment of African Americans, George Forman was dancing around the ring with a red, white and blue flag.

We can't forget that the greatest human to ever touch a basketball was often accused of not doing enough for "the hood."

During the early 90's Michael Jordan was accused of not supporting the Sonja Haynes Stone Cultural Center at his alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Also, when asked why he didn't use some of his Nike money to  support the NC black Democratic senatorial candidate, Harvey Gantt, he allegedly said that "Republicans buy sneakers too."

Back during the reign of black boxing great Jack Johnson, white America screamed for a "great white hope" to defeat him. In, 2014, what we need is a great black hope to defeat our self-hatred.

We need athletes who are not ashamed of their blackness. We need sports heroes who will support a black agenda with the same force that others promote a homosexual agenda.

If an athlete can proudly sport a  rainbow colored football helmet, we need a black athlete who will proudly carry a red, black and green hockey stick.

Since this is supposed to be Black History Month, wouldn't it have been nice if one of the black Seattle Seahawks would have come to the post Superbowl  press conference with a copy of Dr. Carter G. Woodson's Miseducation of the Negro? Or what would happen if at the, upcoming, NBA All Star Weekend, the African American players would host some Black Empowerment Conferences and strategize ways to pull their resources to help the little black boys and girls in the hood?

In all fairness, it's not just the athletes that need  to step up, but black celebrities, in general. During the recent Grammy Awards, Hip Hop icon Queen Latifah , helped to officiate a, partially, same sex mass wedding. We need some artists to step up and host a major event on the world stage to  rebuild the black family.

We have enough Michael Sams and Queen Latifahs telling our children that it's OK to be gay. We need some Jim Browns and Nina Simones to tell them that its OK to be, "young, gifted and black."

Hostile Takeover of Black History Month

During the Civil Rights Era /Black Power Era  , the voices of Black America were represented by black leaders such as Malcolm X and The Last Poets. However, in 2014 the voices  of "Black America" are represented by white liberals like Tim Wise and the rapper Macklemore.

This Black History Month, NC minister Paul Scott, founder of the Messianic Afrikan Nation is calling for a "hostile takeover" of Black History Month, According to Scott, Black culture has become "too white"  and is no longer what Dr. Carter G. Woodson (founder of , then, Black History Week) intended.

This February, Scott is demanding that the Black community regain control of Black culture and become better custodians of Black history.

Protesting NWA's Hall of Shame

video


Many Hip Hop fans are excited about NWA's nomination for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, a NC Hip Hop activist and journalist is not one of them.
 
TRUTH Minista Paul Scott blames NWA for many problems that are still facing the Black community almost 25 years after the release of NWA's first album. He says that NWA replaced the conscious Hip Hop of the era with a culture of death and destruction.
 
Scott is asking that fans of real Hip Hop contact the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and demand that NWA be removed from induction consideration.
 
Instead of being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Scott says that the group should be forever condemned to Hip Hop's "Hall of Shame."
