    Religion:
    Kemetic-Omnist
    Good Evening,
    I'm new to this forum so I decided to show some respect to the ones that have been here for a while by introducing myself. I am born and raised in Mississippi so I started off life as a Christian since that was the religion my family associated with. I grew up in a black neighborhood so all I saw was church after church after church based on Christian views. Once I left college, college I started to question Christianity to the point I left the religion and started associating myself with the Agnostic umbrella. During that time, I started to do some research on religions that associated with the black community outside of the Christian tradition. I researched everything from the Nation of Islam to the Nation of Gods and Earths (5 Percenters) to Hebrew Israelites and Moors. After doing some searching I finally decided that I would practice the way of Kemetic Spirituality and have been doing that for some time now. While practicing Kemetic Spirituality, I still have a thirst for knowledge regarding all of the other religions of the world and came to realize that I have view points that I agree with in books such as the Quran and Bible. This is why I like to say that my official title is a Kemetic-Omnist. Hope to learn a lot of good things from the members of this board.

    I would like to point out that Kemetic spirituality isn't only for black folks, but welcome.

    I didn't mean for it to come off as me saying that Kemeticism is something meant only for black people. I was saying that I only focused on religious/spiritual beliefs that are mainly practiced by us. I've seen others practice it in some form or fashion and wouldn't tell them they can't because they're not black.

    I grew up elsewhere but moved to MS USA about five years ago.

    One thing I have noticed is that all towns are mostly the same. Its very strange. I can drive for 200 miles and know what my shopping options will be: Walmart, McDonalds, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, Taco Bell, KFC.

    This is true especially in the northern part of Mississippi. One thing I tell people that ask about Mississippi is to not visit the northern part unless you're going to Southaven. Most of the state is poor especially in the Mississippi Delta so you won't see much of anything of importance outside of fast food places, gas stations and Walmart, Walgreens or Kroger.
