Filmmaker and author, Jeremiah Camara ask: Why are Black Folks Religious

Jeremiah Camara was once a member of one of the largest Black churches in Cincinnati, Ohio, his place of birth.

Baptized at an early age, Jeremiah moved to Cleveland, Ohio, shortly after high school, where he began his quest toward a deeper understanding of spirituality. He also taught himself to play the flute shortly after graduating from high school, and later took private lessons at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.

While in Cleveland, he began to diligently study the Bible and gave serious thought to becoming a minister, or at least living an active life in the church. During that time, he attended a Baptist church, at least two or three times a week. Despite Mr. Camara’s heavily Jazz-infused upbringing, the only music he listened to at that time was gospel.

Like many, he felt the church could provide him with the substance he was missing in the way of answers, meaning and purpose in his life.

Growing up, he had not been raised in any one particular church. His parents were not consistent churchgoers, and never insisted that he nor his brothers and sisters attend church. Nevertheless, he did manage to go quite often.

There came a time, however, when he began to distance himself from the church; not because of a particularly bad experience or negative incident, but because he had begun to expose himself to other forms of thought, spiritual concepts and ideas.

“I began to see the church as just one source of guidance and inspiration. The diversity of the world and its kaleidoscopic array of infinite ideas and wisdom, would not permit my spirit to be confined only to the teachings of the church. It also disturbed me deeply to witness Blacks praising so much, but producing so little,” says Camara.

Jeremiah Camara returned to church, but this time as an investigator. Visits to churches of varying denominations, brought to light a common thread linking the vast majority. Mostly all, in his opinion, were preaching a gospel of powerlessness.

As the former owner of Word Up Bookstore, Camara created a videocassette documentary in 1989, Psychological Wars, which examined subliminal messages in sit-coms, cartoons and commercials that negatively impacted the psyche of African Americans. The documentary received international attention and endorsements by noted Black educators, Na’im Akbar and Jawanza Kunjufu.

Following a long investigative hiatus, he rediscovered this same theological impotence when he moved to the Atlanta metro area, where he quickly discovered that church was big business. He knew then the time had come for him to write a book shedding light on the many psychologically crippling aspects within the church that keep Blacks in a state of “Holy Lockdown.”

Jeremiah Camara is the author of the books:
•Holy Lockdown: Does the Church Limit Black Progress? and
• The New Doubting Thomas: The Bible, Black Folks & Blind Belief

Camara is also a poet and has won several poetry awards; the most notable at The National Black Theater in Harlem, New York. He has performed poetry at the prestigious Apollo Theater, and is also the author of Smoke & Haze, a timeless collection of poetry, which reflects his vivid imagination, along with his prolific and sometimes humorous outlook concerning social injustice.

He branched out to blogging with video production by creating Camara’s Classics, Camara’s Contemplations and the acclaimed 10 minute, or less, video series, Slave Sermons. which addresses the perils of religious intoxication and the deleterious consequences of being theologically conditioned to rely upon supernaturalism and divine intervention to deal with critical issues.

Additionally, Jeremiah is the producer, writer and director of the full-length, documentary film entitled, Contradiction: A Question of Faith. Contradiction explores the impact of religious loyalty and how an unyielding commitment to faith in an omniscient and omnipotent being is affecting society, particularly the African American segment.

Camara made the film seeking to understand the paradox of the saturation of churches in Black communities coexisting in the midst of poverty and powerlessness and if there is a correlation between high-praise and low productivity.

Grant Smith Talks About Ten Explosive U.S. Government Secrets about Israel

Grant Smith is the director of the Washington DC based Institute for Research Middle Eastern policy (IRmep)/ IRmep is an independent nonprofit that studies U.S. policy formulation toward the Middle East. Smith’s research and analysis about trade, law enforcement and opportunity costs have appears in Antiwar.com, the Financial Times of London, Arab News, Kiplinger, Gannet, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the New York Times, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and other specialty publications.

Smith is a frequent guest analysis on Voice of America, Radio France Internationale. He has also appeared on the BBC, C-Span, Al Jazeera, CNN and Press TV.

In 2003, Grant launched his Institute for Research Middle East Policy at a policy symposium in the Raburn House Office Building on Capital Hill warning about the grave dangers of adopting a 1996 neoconservative plan for involving the US military more deeply across the Middle East.

Grant was on The Kathleen Wells Show previously, and discussed his book: Divert! Divert details how an American company diverted/smuggled enriched uranium out of the country to Israel.

Grant’s book, Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s Economy, shows that American’s problem is not only Israel and it’s lobby, but perhaps more dangerously blanket immunity from prosecution.

The harmful activities in which the Israel Lobby leaders engage are only possible because of their ability to corrupt US politics at every level of government.

Today, Grant will discuss, the ten explosive U.S. government secrets about Israel, see here: http://irmep.org/ten.htm

The 10th Anniversary of the Iraq War

We discuss the decision to invade Iraq, the search for WMD's and the link to al-Qaeda. Open phones at the half hour -- what do you think about our invasion into Iraq?

Prof. Lawrence Davidson Explores the Misadventure To Iraq

Lawrence Davidson is a professor at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania. His academic work is centered on the history of American foreign relations with the Middle East.

Throughout his career, Davidson has informed public discourse with his critique of American foreign policy in the Middle East and has embarked on this endeavor in a way that promotes citizen awareness. Davidson analysis has centered on the reality of American conduct in the Middle East and has performed this analysis in conjunction with an awareness of the propaganda that has permeated this debate for the past 65 years. Given this analysis and focus, Davidson has become an outspoken and unflinching critic of the U.S. alliance with Israel and the Zionists' treatment of the Palestinian people.

Davidson is the author of several books. His latest, published in 2009, is Foreign Policy, Inc.: Privatizing America's National Interest. This work locates the source of U.S. foreign policy formulation in the activity of powerful lobbies rather than in the White House or State Department.
