BLING: Jay-Z Sports Medallion From Group That Believes “White People are Devils”
Probably not racist, or something:
Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé – but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside. Asked once if the group’s symbol – an eight-pointed star with the number 7 in the middle – held any meaning for him, the rapper shrugged, “A little bit.”
So what exactly do Five Percenters believe?
Oh yeah, you’re gonna want to read this:
“The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group.
“Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior – basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”
It gets better:
To show followers the way, members must learn the Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet – powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe. In both, each letter and number represents a concept: for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay Z’s pendant stands for God.
Caucasians, meanwhile, don’t enjoy an exalted status in the narrative of the Five Percenters.
“The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F—k white people. Seriously. White people are devils,” Knight, 36, who is white and converted to :Islam as a teenager, once wrote.
Probably nothing, right?
this is not the first time Jay Z has worn the symbol of the Five Percent Nation. He once wore a similar chain during a promotion for his “Magna Carta Holy Grail” album in July and recently wore it at the Philadelphia stop of his Magna Carta World Tour in late January.: The Christian Post reported: that Jay rapped about the doctrines of the Five Percent Nation in a song called “Heaven.”
Here’s a sample:
Knowledge, wisdom, freedom, understanding – we just want our equality…
And the Supreme Mathematics?
4. Culture(Freedom when applied to 40 or more)
7. Allah God
8. Build or Destroy
Yeah, he’s a racist.
What say you?
