Is This Your King?
"Black is King" is a direct response to Kanye West's "Jesus is King" album. The naming of this project was not coincidental and it is Beyonce's attempt to further push her satanic agenda.
"I can't say I believe in God and call myself a child of God and then not see myself as a God".
The "black" Beyonce is referring to is not the melanated skin color of African descendants but the darkness as it relates to evil and satan.
"We have always been wonderful. I see us reflected in the world's most heavenly things. Black is king. We were beauty before they knew what beauty was."
The imagery displayed in Beyonce's "Black is King" is too far fetched and displays only one possible aspect of the African diaspora. All Africans did not in the past, nor presently, have access to a royal lineage. Beyonce's promotion of Africans draped in gold and diamonds, and not their struggles of oppression and famine, portray a message that Africans were ".... enslaved because they were kings and queens and not simply because they were human". Her imagery is a further suggestion that we always feel a need to be validated by our participation in capitalism and imperialism.
"That's what really being a king is, taking care of your responsibilities and making sacrifices that I may or may not want to make. Sometimes we can't go out, we gotta work, you know what I'm saying? That's kingship to me, taking care of what's really yours".
Every quote in purple was taken from the "Black is King" project. Each quote seems to be verbiage that is the exact opposite of the above critiques of the imagery in this project.
So, what is Beyonce trying to tell us?
Kujichagulia, probably my favorite principle of Kwanzaa, recognizes the need to reject the oppression of people and countries while preserving our determination to define ourselves, name ourselves,

create for ourselves and speak for ourselves. We must work with all cultures and people for the good of our community, but without loosing ourselves nor our self-reliance. To also give this principle a personal meaning, self determination is the process by which a person controls their own life.
Does the "Black is King" project reflect the principle of self determination?
Is Beyonce fooling our minds with her imagery, coaxing us to reject the principles we have been governing our daily lives with?
Is she leading our younger generation toward a path of darkness?
Does her promotion of Africans as Kings and Queens diminish the everyday oppressive realities of Africans and the global struggle for black liberation?
Isn't it beautiful, that as free people, we have the freedom to self determine our own lives regardless of the constant narrative, imagery, oppression, or whatever else, that was created to destroy us?

Wow! This is good work and research! I payed attention but I took the quote about us being children of god as an upliftment to say dont depend on something outside of yourself for the magic to happen you have the magic inside of each and everyone of us. Anything we want to acheive our minds can concieve all you have to do is believe. But all the rituals are definitely a representation of false Gods! Divination and all the above which then makes me go in to question the bible and then that makes me step away and just appreciate the good that I found in the video which is that we too are amazing as black folk we too can be and do anything we put our minds to and let no one tell you or make you believe different!ReplyDelete
Great Analogy... I took the entire project as it being a symbolism of our current situation of epidemic and pandemic in regards to the black culture. Titling the project, "Black is King" in my opinion referenced the kingdomship of us as a people. All our views are beautiful! ❤️ReplyDelete
