Hotep Jesus Wikipedia: An African-American television figure and a leader of the Hotep movement, Hotep Jesus is known as Bryan Sharpe. The majority of African-Americans were the original Native Americans, the renowned Carthaginian general Hannibal was a black African, the Roman Empire was a primitive civilization that relied on Africa for food, and other controversial views were among his many fringe conspiracy theories.
Having been born in Brooklyn, New York City on October 1, 1980, Bryan Sharpe has gone on to become an author, a marketer, and an artist. “Spiritual enlightenment” came to him during his time in the hip-hop business, when he worked as a marketing for 50 Cent’s energy drink and sent popular tweets on Twitter.
The appellation “Hotep Jesus” became Sharpe’s new moniker when a Twitter user inquired whether he was “some type of Jesus.” He spoke on Joe Rogan’s show in 2019 and discussed his thoughts on the history of African-Americans.
To him, African-Americans have been taught to have a “fetus mentality” in which they see white people as oppressors and have a “slave mentality,” and the only way to uplift the community is to teach them about pre-slavery black history, such as “Queen Angola,” the Songhai Empire, the Mali Empire, Mansa Musa, and other older topics like these.
Before we were slaves, we were Kings” was a slogan he used to rally support for the black community, and he argued that doing so was preferable than equating the black people with historical figures like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.
Hotep Jesus also said that Hannibal, the Carthaginian commander, was black, and that black youth in the United States should study his conquests over the Roman empire. He also stated that Africans from the Malian Empire had travelled with the ocean current to South and North America during the 13th and 14th centuries, and that they were not taken over on slave ships.
Another question raised by him was, why aren’t schools teaching about the role of black slaveowners? He claimed that Native Americans were in fact blacks, and he contended that the majority of African-Americans aren’t descended from slaves. As a result of the progressive conquest of the American continent by Europeans, he rejected the idea that Africans were transported to the continent aboard slave ships.
In addition, Hotep Jesus said that genealogy websites were wrong when they labeled him as “Angolan” or “Kenyan.” Erasing African success by believing the Atlantic slave trade implied to him that white people took slaves from Africa to the New World, and that Africans could not have found America and constructed their own ships.
The Olmecs exhibited African physical characteristics, but Rogan questioned the logic of Hotep Jesus’ assertion that Africans constituted the great majority of indigenous peoples. Hotep Jesus then claimed that Rome was dependent on Africa for food, that the African Moors brought etiquette and running water to Europe saved the white race from the Black Plague, and thus claimed that the Africans were superior enough to travel the globe as the source of food.
He also called the Roman Empire “rudimentary” and stated that the Greeks regarded Ancient Egypt as superior to the rest of Greece’s civilizations. Aside from the Olmec heads, he used the serpent mound and the supposedly Egyptian artifacts found in Ohio, and the discovery of Egyptian gold in the Grand Canyon, as evidence of Egyptian settlement in the Americas, as well as the possibility of Africans arriving there before Europeans became literate.
