Enslaved Africans were taught to fear and devalue African religious practices. Today, most Black people in the world still don’t seek to inculcate traditional African religions.
Today, many Black people use a white image to depict Jesus. Africans who practiced Christianity before slavery used Black images historically to describe their god.
Many Black people across the world still use the King James version of the Bible as the final authority of Christianity.
Today, many Black people focus only on religious dogma that was taught during slavery and colonialism rather than developing a spiritual relationship with the creator.
The majority of enslaved Africans were taught to no longer honor and connect spiritually with their ancestors. As a result, many Black people today devalue the idea of developing a connection with their ancestors.
