I belong to a few message boards and this ‘brotherhood’, the illuminati keeps coming up on a few of them. For those of you who don’t know, the illuminati are a secret society that has been around for thousands of years. I first got wind of them when President Obama was running for the White House. Before then I thought it was all Hollywood Angels & Demons type of stuff. I didn’t think people actually believed it and I certainly did not believe that black people would believe that President Obama made a deal with the devil to become President of the United States. Yup, a blood oath deal with the devil. Since then every black man who has earned money or position is part of this secret society. Jay and Kanye rap about it and throw the secret signs, some people are saying that Beyonce’s baby is the devil and she and Jay owe their success to their pact with the devil. Obviously what was once secret and only opened to a small few, whose names are not revealed, is now fully blown because black people are equating it to other black people’s success every day. Guess black people can’t keep secrets.
At first I chalked it up to envy; some people hate other people’s success so much they will make up anything but it goes a bit deeper than that. I have heard a few friends and even family members give credibility to this nonsense. Basically, as I read it these people, these BLACK PEOPLE truly believe that no black man can become president without some devil-worshipping intervention or that another black person can’t possibly be successful without selling his soul? This is 2012, right? I don’t know whether to be angry or sad. I guess a bit of both. But more sadness that grown ass people think so little of themselves, their culture, or their identity that they could propagate something so heinous as this against their own people. Devil worship. WOW!
SMH. I want to move to another planet.
