Our ancestors (Africans) were the first to discover the concept of a Supreme Being, the first to establish his/her identity and to establish a relationship with the Creator. Thousands of years before God, Jehovah, Yahweh, Krishna, Allah etc.existed there was AMON (the first Deity/ Creator)and all other Gods are his/her children. The people who would later come to worship God, Jehovah, Allah etc. all came and sat at the feet of our ancestors to learn the meaning of life and the knowledge of the creator. They then fashioned their own versions of the Creator in their images. Black people are now worshiping everyone else God but their own. We are the only people without a God of our own who actually looks like us. The Europeans have God, the Jews have Yahweh/Jehovah, the Arabs have Allah, the Hindus have Krishna and we are worshiping these Gods and have abandoned the father/mother of them all.

And he/she should reflect the image of black people. Europeans have made it no secret that God is white. They have his pictures all over Europe inside of their holy places. For example the creation theme where they have God reaching out to Adam from the clouds extending his finger while Adam is extending his finger from earth. Do the research for yourself and you'll see that all cultures depict the Creator in the same nationality as themselves.

But most people past the age of twelve do not believe that God the creator is a physical being. So why do you?

Whether the Creator is or is not a physical being is not the the point here. When I refer to the creator as him/her it is an acknowledgment of the divine male and female principle that the creator embodies.

Whetther you know it or not the Creator is Black. If you're Christian then the book of Genesis states that God said let there be light which means that before the creation of light everything was dark including the Creator and science verifies this. Before the condensing of the gases that created the Big Bang light did not exist which leads back to everything being dark.

Do you understand that being a physical being means you are finite?? God is said to be infinite, eternal outside of space and time. God is before male, female, dark, light or anything you can imagine.

God is Spirit....people so need to come up out of the completely foolish mind-sets that He is black, white,mexican,or chinese. Which does nothing more than cause racial tension and we have too much of this already. If God wanted us to focus on what color His only begotten Son was, which is the only person truly one can focus on according to skin color, because God is Spirit. Why would He say in His Word that He shows no partiality?(Acts 10:34,Romans 2:11)

Modern time Middle Easterns are not the indigenous persons of the land. The original were dark skinned persons.

And God the Creator of all mankind created us....Woe to him who strives with his maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth! Shall the clay say to him who formed it, what are you making? Or shall your handiwork say He has no hands? Isaiah 45:9. There is no such thing as we discovered or found the God of the heavens, now the gods of this earth they can be discovered or found. Lets not get it twisted.

The blacks already found their god in the seventies. They called him "Shaft".

As it's been mentioned, every culture has depicted their deities as their own color. Unfortunately blacks got the European depictions crammed down their throats. Not good for a psyche of people already dealing with white supremacy.
All the sudden, when blacks speak of having their own worship reflecting ourselves, "God is no color."
Other blacks even say this. I don't understand. Somebody gave me (black woman, can't remember if it was my Mom or my gf at the time's Mom) a pink colored white angel fridge magnet, and I swear I want to throw it away everytime I look at it.
Well, I just moved, I may have tossed it, I forgot.
I'll be dayumed if I raise kids one day with someone else's image of God.

That's not what was being taught by the ancient African/ Black people of Ethiopia, Kemet, Babylon, Indus Kush etc. They had spiritual systems in place designed to raise man's spirit from the animal state to God on earth where the practitioner became one with the Creator. These spiritual systems were practiced by nearly all civilizations of the ancient world. It wasn't until Europeans like Justinian and Julius of Constantin's holy Roman empire and the onslaught of Islam that these practices were outlawed and replaced by religion.
