Hebrew Israelite groups gather and proselytize in metropolitan areas. This happened many times before Christ as seen in the Old Testament records, but even after Christ, the children of Israel were scattered throughout the world by their enemies. But the so-called Negro has experienced all the curses spoken of in the Scripture concerning the children of Israel, but has not been given recognition for it.
Tracing the Exodus motif in early African American Christianity reveals that the claims of Black Hebrews originate from a shift from symbolic to literal identification with the biblical Hebrews. My main goal in this piece was to give the reader the basics about the Hebrew Israelites.
Since there were thousands of true Israelites, not Edomite Jews, long living there near Alexandria, Egypt, who had escaped the Assyrians in the 8th century B.C., and since Greek was already their native language, they completed the compilation of Israelite scriptures in 72 days, according to legend.

So we see that the Lebanon Mountain was named Lebanon because it was a white mountain.

Read Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 and you will not find a single verse saying, The Most High said the Curses are the identifying mark of the true Israelites.” You will not find that God says, Whichever people are suffering the curses in their entirety are the true Israelites.” Some of the verses in those chapters can be compared to African history—as well as Israelites many other pestilences and genocides and enslavements throughout time.
