In this belief-shattering memoir, Hannah D. Spivey speaks about life as a Hebrew Israelite woman, and how much misogyny in said community impacted her life and destroyed the self-esteem of some Hebrew Israelite women. Hannah points out the contradictions, hate, examples of misogyny, ridicule, and self-absorption in the Hebrew Israelite community and highlights how similar In this belief-shattering memoir, Hannah D.

    Interesting and sadly a lot of it is true It spark my interest and yes misogyny does exist in the Hebrew Israelites I also believe that people lean on things too much. Being awaken does not make you holier, better, or free from sin. It helps you spiritually know who you are as a nation and where you came from and how to grow.

    Interesting I liked the book because it gives this womans perspective on the Israelite way of life. I can totally understand why she feels the way she does.

    This book is an amazing book exposing the Reality behind Hebrew Israelites and Black Hebrew Israelites. I admire the Author's reasoning and intellect... her ability to step outside her group and see her own bias. Black Hebrew Israelites and Hebrew Israelites are Black Supremacist hate groups. Just like White Supremacists, they engage in hate against other races and sexism towards women. I was surprised however to see how they also perceive black women as inferior. Outside the community, many of us This book is an amazing book exposing the Reality behind Hebrew Israelites and Black Hebrew Israelites. I admire the Author's reasoning and intellect... her ability to step outside her group and see her own bias. Black Hebrew Israelites and Hebrew Israelites are Black Supremacist hate groups. Just like White Supremacists, they engage in hate against other races and sexism towards women. I was surprised however to see how they also perceive black women as inferior. Outside the community, many of us keep on raising awareness about this hate group... but because we are white, or white-passing our criticism is often confused with racism. The fact is that BHI or HI are profoundly anti-semitic, they claim Jewish heritage and engage in historical revisionism... in fact, they use Nazi Talking points and propaganda to further their hate-fueling agenda. I believe it is important as Africans that they accept their Unique history. They were never and will never be Hebrews/ Israelis... but they are missing out on such a rich cultural heritage... from Bantu Culture to amazing unique languages that are so different from Indo-European Languages. Yoruba languages, for instance, are so rich and unique. This historic revisionism is dividing us and weakening both African Americans, Jews and Europeans. It is very upsetting. We are all human and should all respect each other. Hannah did an amazing job calling out the hate, which is remarkable and not is when you live in an environment full of propaganda and indoctrination. I used to be an activist against racism and for reparations for slavery... but the reality is so much more complicated than that. When I was 19 I was writing a romance novel about a couple who fought against racism ( a slave and the daughter of a slave owner) I had the book halfway through, when I stopped writing it. The research made me sick. Not only did I found out that the slave trade started by Africans selling other Africans to whites, but I also found out that non-Africans were slaves too, and the most shocking information of all... that thousands of African Americans and Indigenous Americans had slaves themselves.... and that the first slave owners in America were black themselves. This information made me sick to my stomach... I couldn't sleep for days. Eventually, I burned my book upset at the lies I had been told. Oppression exists regardless of race. We need to fight hate, we need to fight historical revisionism and we need to show people that it's ok to be Jewish, It's ok to be black, It's ok to be Asian, it's ok to be white... we need to fight division... Even more upsetting is knowing that the human trade and slavery still exists to this day in Africa Erasing oppression by blaming a single group of doing it is causing people who still suffer oppression to go unnoticed. This book is a must read for everyone. We need to stop the black supremacists and white supremacists from dividing us. Spreading Nazi Propaganda is only helping hate spread. To the author I say: Hannah Spivey, may G-d bless you you're a great writer. I hope you heal from all the pain you have been through. These days we have hate and division sprouting from every side. White supremacists saying non-whites are inferior, black supremacists saying the same but in reverse.... and people are more and more divided. You're a great and brave woman for calling out the hate on your side. These days people don't see gray areas... it's a game of all or nothing. I am glad that you came to give your hand to fight extremism on both sides. The first step is to denounce it. You did an amazing job. My family is catholic and I am converting to Judaism... so I know how hateful Christians can be regardless of race. Antisemitism especially is a huge problem in our world as it is spread by everyone. Muslims, Christians, White supremacists, Black Supremacists, etc... so your book is an invaluable tool in the fight against Anti-Semitism which plagues our society in every layer. We also have political anti-semitism which again plagues both the right and the left, especially socialism derived ideologies. Keep up the good work Hannah!

    Hebrew/Israelite?? This book has absolutely nothing to do with the Hebrew/Israelite religion. I get it the author needed to vent. However, may I suggest you become truly educated in the Hebrew/Israelite religion? Doing this may give you some closure or peace. You are judging a religion on your experience with a group of people who clearly has no knowledge of Hebrew/Israelites and their beliefs. A group can call themselves anything but it doesn't mean that is truly who they are. I am not a Hebrew/ Hebrew/Israelite?? This book has absolutely nothing to do with the Hebrew/Israelite religion.

    I never received my copy that I won in a GOODREADS giveaway back on May 16, 2017. I've reached out with no response. Sadly, I need to clear my reading queue & shall assign a 1 star rating. I was excited to have won & looked forward to reading. If I ever receive it, I'll read & post corrected review. I never received my copy that I won in a GOODREADS giveaway back on May 16, 2017.
