A video shows a white couple bending down and kissing the boots of black power group members to apologize for slavery.
The eight-minute clip appears to have been filmed in First Citizens Plaza in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was uploaded to the YouTube page of the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, a radical faction of the black nationalist Black Hebrew Israelite movement, under the title: “WHEN HEATHENS #RECOGNIZE TRUE #PROPHETS OF #GOD.”
Two people who had expressed an affinity with the group were responsible for the December 2019 attack on a JC Kosher Supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey which left four people dead.
The clip shows the leader of the group placing his black boot on top of a speaker before a white man bends down to kiss it followed by a blonde woman who is presumably his partner.
The leader assures the couple that they have won a degree of divine mercy and asks them to go to the bank and bring him some money.
“Now, when Christ comes back and establishes him kingdom on the earth, you will receive some mercy, man, because you knew who you were in the presence of,” Lightbourne says. “Now, the next thing you definitely can do is right across the road Bank of America … come give a healthy donation man so we’ll keep pushing this truth.”
“Yeah,” Seth and Skylar agree.
“Thank you guys,” she says. “You’re changing everything.”
They have a series of other YouTube clips of the I.S.U.P.K., as the group calls itself, running the same stunt on other apparently white couples.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the I.S.U.P.K. an anti-white hate group.
