Black male oppression of black women must change

Oppression of black women

To my sisters that are fighting black male oppression of black women. I always find it peculiar when I see brothers talking about the need to protect black women from the abuse of racism but can’t understand his own oppressive behaviors toward black women.

It seems odd until it is understood why he feels the need to protect you. A quick analysis will expose that it is based on the misogynistic idea that women are the “weaker sex.” It is the basis of so many laws and attitudes towards women that have oppressed them. Personally, I know women don’t need protecting.

Women have a power within that is going to change the world. Why? Because the representation of the divine feminine in human form (the woman) has the ability to teach men how to go within and explore our own emotional state. the average man would rather explore outer space than to go within and explore his own inner space.

Across any demographic men have a shorter lifespan than women. A major part of that is we men break down physically and emotionally from so much pent up negative energy that manifests as illness. Heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, etc. Science has proven a regular regimentation of meditation would go a long way to easing those diseases. Meditation is the practical application of the divine feminine.

Right now is like no other time in human history because of what women are doing to advance their right to BE. I don’t say this to gain favor. I recognize that as men we are trapped in a system that women are a key to our liberation. My liberation as a man is bound with yours as a woman. I won’t protect you because you don’t need my protection. You are capable and strong. However, I will be there to champion you and to do all I can to remove the yoke of male-dominated oppression.

We can blame white men and white supremacy for our oppression. But, that would mean as black men we turn the focus off of our own part in suppressing black women. It starts in a staunch religious setting. Women are to be submissive and subservient. For a man suffering from low self-esteem within a society that values nothing about him the edicts of the church are a saving grace when control is needed to subdue a vibrant independent soul clothed in female form.

The “conscious brothers” are no better. They scream we must protect our women but hold the yoke of oppression just as tight around her neck as Christian and Islamic brothers. The common denominator is a need to control. A need to bottle up what you fear will challenge your manhood.

In our hyper-masculine society, manhood is defined in terms of physical strength and emotional detachment.

That definition has been a source of pain and illness for black men. We die at a younger age than any other group on the planet. This must change.

In ancient Africa, women were recognized as the other half of an equally important duality. They were not allowed to be equal, they WERE  the equal of the man.

In order for the oppression to stop we must, as men, begin to connect to our own inner wisdom. The ancients called this the divine feminine. It is the Neter Seshat. We gain much knowledge. But, in order to gain wisdom, we must cultivate the ability to contemplate that knowledge.

Wisdom is the inner contemplation of knowledge. The Greeks taking this idea from ancient Africans personified it as Sophia. It is going within and connecting to the divine feminine. All the facts from knowledge won’t do us any good if we can’t see women in a way that allows them to be free of male dominated patriarchal ideology.

Know thyself has its place in wisdom. It is part of living in balance. It is the practice of Ma’at. Recognizing that the outside of us is produced from out inner divine feminine aspect.

The Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Principle or the gender principle is an often talked about but woefully misunderstood esoteric concepts. The average person thinks of it in literal terms of male and female. If you think in literal terms, you will completely miss the practical and powerful application of this ancient Egyptian knowledge.

  • In this article, you will learn how the idea of divine masculine and divine feminine has been misapplied
  • You will learn what divine masculine and divine feminine are beyond a literal interpretation
  • You will learn how divine masculine and divine feminine can be applied in daily life

What is the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine principle?

The first key to applying the divine masculine and divine feminine principle is to recognize it is only related to male and female via metaphor and analogy. Male and female are the representations of an abstract principle on the physical plane.

The way to view them conceptually is in terms of the male and female anatomy as analogies. The Female womb is inside of her and hidden from view. Being inside the body, the womb is in the “dark” and hidden from sight.

The male penis is outside the body and in plain sight for all to see. It is in the “light” of day if not clothed and covered.


Looking at the divine masculine and feminine principle from an anatomical perspective should give you insight as to how the principle can be applied.

For example, on a mental plane, both masculine and feminine aspects of the mind are present in all of creation. Both are present in men and women.

Thinking in terms of analogy to the womb, the feminine is receptive, desire, inner-directed. It is the receiver of the “seed” or impulse to create. All things are incubated within the feminine aspect, “the great mother.” The universe was born out of darkness (hidden) feminine aspect. Another divine masculine and divine feminine principledeeper way to see this is the universe came from within the “mind” of the creator. The universe is the outward or masculine (visible) aspect of creation.


Masculine is active, driven, outwardly directed, and visible. It is the active “seed” that seeks a receptive feminine host. If there is to be growth or change within any experience the masculine principle is being exercised. Divine Masculine and divine feminine principleIt is expansion, to the open and known (in the light, or visible aspect).

When we think of masculine and aggressive we usually attach a negative connotation to it. However, this is a misunderstanding of aggression.  Consider that without the masculine active or driven principle a flower would not burst from its bud. A mother could not birth a child into the world. An angry outburst can clear the air and your energy.  In order for any change to take place, “aggression” is necessary to break stasis.

When we bound up aggression is when there can be negative consequences.  This is what we see too often in society today. It is the masculine principle that has been bound, bottled up and confined that finally burst onto the scene. Think about how men are socialized to not be emotional and to stay under control. “Man up” means to not show emotion but the energy has to manifest in some way.

A direct relation to the “man up” idea is homophobia within men. To be looked at in any way as being feminine is seen as a threat to masculinity. Being “emotional” is being “like” a woman.

Gay men are often times seen as the example of man being too feminine and takes the brunt of men being afraid of their own emotions. What does this also say about how men relate to women? Her emotions are not respected. Women can be seen as “too emotional.”

In both cases, it is the socialization of and lack of respect for our inner-directed emotional aspect that too many men have issues with. In other words, what the ancients called the divine feminine.

It’s not aggression or the masculine principle that is the issue. It is when the energy has been bound up and then it breaks through and manifests in a violent expression.

It’s often confusing when we use the idea of “dark” as negative when we consider the feminine as metaphorically in the “dark.” Hopefully, recognizing the allegorical application concerning the hidden aspect of a female womb will clear this up.

Dark is not a reference to negative and light is not automatically good when we reference the divine masculine and divine feminine principle. They are a metaphorical reference to the anatomy, not a judgment of good and evil.

For example, an overactive feminine expression, in a male or a female, can be symbolized by depression. You turn in on yourself. Sometimes in order to rise from depression, one has to get angry and do something about it! Being active (aggression) or passive (depression) can have negative consequences if taken to either extreme.

The light as good and dark as negative do not apply when expressing the idea of divine masculine and divine feminine principle. To do so is a misapplication of knowledge. And quite frankly, a male bias.

The Khemetian NTR (NaTuRe)

In Khemet (pre-dynastic Egypt) the masculine principle within human mind was called Tehuti (Thoth). Through this neter (principle of nature) came writing and language, mathematics. It is the ability of the human mind to act and produce into the physical world it’s thoughts (Thoth is the origin of the word thought), ideas, and imagination.

The feminine counterpart of Tehuti was called Seshat. Through Seshat, we have memories, past lives, imagination, visualization, ideas etc. All of these activities are done inside your mind or within you.

You ALWAYS use both, one side cannot exist without the other. A practical example is when we come up with a great idea that we turn into a business or what an architect puts on a blueprint that becomes a building. The idea is first formed inside the mind or feminine aspect of the mind.

In writing this blog article I continuously went back and forth between the masculine and feminine principles of Tehuti and Seshat. I had to think of the idea I wanted to express (Seshat) and then type it up (Tehuti).

The Khemetians understood these principles like no other society before it or since. The Neteru are a balancing act weaving themselves in and throughout nature. One is not better than the other. They are not individuated singular entities.

The symbols used were male and female to invoke the known from the unknown. In other words, to understand the universe through analogous aspects of our being and daily experience.

How can I apply divine masculine and divine feminine principle?

One way to apply divine feminine is to sit quietly and meditate or visualize an idea. Then listen to the guidance of that inner voice. Be you man or women, this is use of your divine feminine or inward-directed mind.

Then take action on that guidance in the best way that inspires you. Taking action is one way to apply the divine masculine.

In conclusion, it is a fallacy to think of divine masculine and divine feminine principle in terms of a male and female. It goes much deeper. Don’t get stuck at the literal level when studying the neters. They are universal laws or principles expressed poetically and personified to help you gain insight into their power and application.

The Egyptian principle of Tehuti is outwardly directed action of the human mind. It is the representation of the divine masculine in the physical. It is left-brained and logical.

The Egyptian principle of Seshat is the inwardly directed activity of the human mind. It can connect to multiple dimensions of experience, like remembering something in the past or thinking of something in the future.

If you are daring, connect to past lives or future lives! She is right-brained, creative and intuitive.  Seshat is an often underutilized tool.

The Khemetians understood that within us is the Universe and from within springs all experience just as the universe sprang from the neter of neters a.k.a. the Creator, God, Source, etc.
