Warning! The video in this post contains graphic body part references, cussin,bird flippin, and most everything else you’ve heard on your child’s playground or come out of the local teenager’s mouth. Rated NSFW so if you watch it at work it had better damn well be on your break and on your own device. Now if you want to hang around let’s get to it.
Some of you all coming through are gonna want to know “What in Heaven’s name is a Hotep?” I got you covered.
“Hotep” is an Egyptian word that means “at peace.” It’s basically the Egyptian “What’s good?” Over the past several decades, the word has also been utilized quite frequently by black Americans who happen to be more Afrocentric.
Over the past decade or so, the working definition of “Hotep” has morphed into an all-encompassing term describing a person who’s either a clueless parody of Afrocentricity—think “Preach” from Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood—or someone who’s loudly, conspicuously and obnoxiously pro-black but anti-progress.

A hotep will tell you the game of 8 ball pool is racist because the object of the game is for the white cue ball to knock the higher ranking 8 (black) ball off the table.
A hotep will make the color of tires on a vehicle a racial thing – claiming tires being black on a vehicle are symbolic of the white man using black people until they’re worn out then discarding them for more black people to wear out. “Why can’t tires be white?” A hotep would ask?
A hotep can finagle the packagaging of olives into a racial issue.
“See the green olives are in glass where they can get light and see, but the black olives they got them locked up in a can behind steel like they do the black men in prison”.
They don’t stop at racializing, they take on LGBT issues, religion, politics, you name it. They just always manage to make themselves come out of the analogies as the know all supreme.
Don’t beleive the hype. As you’ll find in the video below a hotep can be convincing..until they’re found out. This one gets busted preaching “Black Queeness” in his own video.
Don’t laught too hard.
