Black Hebrew Israelites viciously attacked Covington Catholic Students. Who are they?

The media is ignoring a sect that calls themselves the Black Hebrew Israelites, who verbally attacked a group of Covington Catholic students near the Washington Monument on Saturday, January 19th, 2019. See the below Tucker Carlson Tonight video, at the 3:40 mark, to watch and listen to what the Covington Catholic students were called by the Black Hebrew Israelites sect.

According to Ryan Turner from the Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry:

One sect [of the Black Hebrew Israelites] originated before the Civil War. There was another sect founded later in 1896, the Church of God and Saints of Christ, by William Crowdy. In the 1980s other sects began to appear, such as those lead by Yahweh Ben Yahweh (1935 – 2007), or Hulon Mitchell, Jr. There are a number of other sects of this broad Hebrew Israelite movement known as the Commandment Keepers, The Law Keepers, House of Judah, and the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, just to name a few.1

Let’s look at the Black Hebrew Israelites sect founded by Yahweh Ben Yahweh (a.k.a. Hulon Mitchell, Jr).

Khalil Amani, a former member of the Nation of Yahweh found the below video of Minister Hulon Shah (a.k.a. Hulon X, Hulon Mitchell, Jr ) who would become Yahweh Ben Yahweh from 1967 until his death in 2007.

Khalil Whet Pen Amani states:

Born Hulon Mitchell. Joined the Nation of Islam circa 1960 as Hulon X and given the last name “Shah” by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he became Hulon Shah, the minister of Temple #15 in Atlanta. He would later become a Christian preacher named “Father Michel” and then eventually become YAHWEH BEN YAHWEH in Miami in the 1980s.

Khalil Amani became an Elder under Yahweh Ben Yahweh and headed the Newark, NJ temple. Leaving after five years, he would become the most out-spoken critic of his former leader, Yahweh ben Yahweh and ended up in the Federal Witness Protection Program for lifting the veil of secrecy and criminality surrounding the Nation of Yahweh.

His story is told in Pulitzer Prize winning writer Sydney P. Freedberg’s book, “Brother Love: Murder, Money and a Messiah” (Pantheon Books 1994) and his self-published autobiography, “My Id: Ignant & Dissfunkshunal! Life in the Yahweh Cult and the Witness Protection Program“.

At this time it is unknown which sect of the Black Hebrew Israelites confronted the Covington Catholic students in Washington, D.C. However their obscene racist rants were captured on tape in the below report by Tucker Carlson Tonight:

Ryan Turner states that Black Hebrew Israelite sects have the following practices:

  1. Some groups stand on the street corners of major cities and condemn people for their allegedly false beliefs while using vulgar language.2 The Hebrew Israelites are very combative and generally do not want to listen when their views are challenged.3
  2. They frequently use Hebrew words such as Yah [the name of God, Yahweh, shortened as Yah], Yahoshua [Jesus], Shabbat [Sabbath], etc.
  3. They keep the Jewish Sabbath and many other Jewish customs including circumcision, dietary laws, and the observance of certain Jewish holidays and festivals like Yom Kippur and Passover.
  4. They use the Old and New Testament to support their teachings, especially the five books of Moses (Genesis to Deuteronomy).
  5. They do not consider themselves to be Jews in the modern sense of the term as associated with Orthodox, Reformed, Conservative, or Hasidic Judaism.

    In FACT, they are NOT Jewish at all. If anything, they are a militant sect of Christianity, though somehow, many years ago, some convinced the Israeli government that they were Jewish and became residents (maybe citizens), living primarily in the Negev Desert area.

    These are not the Jewish people of Israel or the ones with the idea’s of helping the USA during the Revolutionary War. Where do you think Benjamin Franklin got all that money.

    The howlers saw what they want to see. I watched several videos .The Native American man walked into the group of Covington boys, appeared to focus on that one, then drummed practically in his face. If he was working out his historic frustration , he could not have been more provocative. The boy stood there, smiling, not smirking. The others appear to be enjoying the music. What boy anywhere has not emulated the “Indian ” chants and music ? So when my two pre-schoolers wore in feathered head dress for a fancy dress competition, they were “mocking ” First Americans ” ? Pathetic nit pickers.

      The native americans obtained a permit for their group & the black Hebrew Israelites parked just outside of the Native American permitted area. The black Hebrew Israelites are somewhat a permanent fixture to that specific location & are always there yelling at anyone/everyone (no respect of person & it’s their initiation rites of passage). The Covington Catholic Church kids were leaving a protest they’d attended – enroute to where? Nobody said. I surmise the kids were deliberating to engage confrontation against the Hebrew Israelites – who are a constant permanent presence at this specific location. The kids did not obtain permits to protest in that area.

    These people are confused and bullies. I ran into them in Newark while attending a church conference and all they did was curse people out . They called anybody with light skin white devils , it’s funny because I’m a white Puerto Rican from the south Bronx and when I past them up laughing at they wouldn’t approach me because of my stature 6’2” 200 lbs.+ according to the Bible there is black Israelite but they are scattered across Africa . They are wanna be’s and another thing Jesus wasn’t white or black .
