African American Asatru Association on Facebook

answersfromvanaheim:

den-frusna-eken:

I just found this page while scanning a person’s profile on Facebook for membership in a group. They’re new, like maybe a week old, but if anyone is interested give them a look.

So I checked this out, and it looks suspiciously like a fake page that a group like DYEHB would set up.

I mean, look at their about paragraph:

"Making up shit as we go! Who needs books? We feel the Gods inside us and worship them according to those feelings!
Impressum
Here at the AAAA, we decided that if you can’t beat them, join them! You can be what you want and do what you want! Want to light yourself on fire and dance to honor Surtr? Sure! Want to stick sage up your ass to honor Freya? Why not? Be you. Do you. Do Nine! Hailsa!”
This isn’t actually support for African American Heathens, it looks more like DYEHB being racist. Don’t fall for it.

hedendom:

This video is terrible, full of misleading/incorrect information and seems to show everything that is wrong with parts of Asatru today in the USA (and elsewhere).

Asatru was not practiced by the tribes of Northern Europe. Asatru is a reconstructed religion and even the term Asatru was coined very recently. What they did practice was hedendom - Heathenry, “the Heathen Custom”, not “Asatru”. I would expect more from someone who clearly professes to be some kind of leader to the Heathen community.

If this American wishes to peel back the layers and discard labels that have overwritten previous ones to try to claim European ancestry, then why does he stop at Northern European labels such as Viking? Why does he not continue to peel away those layers and identify with the ancestors of those people who came from what is now the Middle East? Or back further still to the source of human life?

We have not been “Europeans for about 40,000 years”. This guy should pick up a book. The beginning phases of even just Indo-European migration began around 4000BCE (making even the claim to “Indo-European” less than 6000 years.

His assertion that people of European descent need to “harken back” to this older identity is a fallacy, as anyone can, and did, practice Heathenry. It is cultural, not transmitted by bloodline. If it was transmitted by bloodline then he himself would not be eligible to practice, since the last 1000 or so years of his ancestors were likely Christian (if indeed they were all from Europe and he had some concrete way to know that).

He should not attempt to speak for “Europeans”, as we are quite capable of speaking for ourselves. We do not need his encouragement to follow Forn Sed, as there are many organisations (tolerant, welcoming and non-discriminatory ones) already well established and with a far longer and richer history than his own organisation.

Thankfully there are some very intellectual, knowledgeable, open and honest Norse Heathens I have met from the USA so I just hope they can establish something better than this ill-informed drivel.

And there ya go, straight from the mouth of a Scandinavian person who practices Scandinavian Heathenry.

So I posted that last thing, and then I went to a meeting at work and volunteered to take on something that will mean lots more one-on-one time with students for…probably the next few months.

The rational part of my brain is reminding me that this task has to be done, I’m the best person to do it, and, “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.”

The rest of my brain is screaming, "Why do you do this to yourself?!" Because other than desperately wanting to be a librarian again, a major reason I’ve been looking for a new job is that being in student services already means dealing with waaay more people than I can comfortably handle.

Augh.

Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. In-person interactions with people at work and socially have been consuming basically all of my energy, and there’s been hardly anything left for online stuff or my personal projects. I really need to crawl back into my shell for a while. :/
