Nuwaubianism is a sect promoting a bizarre mixture of anti-white racism, bunk about aliens, and Old Testament guff.
It was founded by convicted child molester Dwight York (also known by a multitude of aliases, including Malachi Z. York-El, Atume-Re, Isa Muhammud, Issa Muhammad, Abd Allh Idn Abu Bakr Muhammad, Rabboni Y’shua Bar El Haady, The Angel Michael, and Chief Black Eagle), who has described himself as “the Supreme Being of This Day and Time, God in Flesh”.
The sect regards York as an alien from the planet Rizq, and at one point declared that, on May 5, 2000, he would return to his home planet with 144,000 followers while the rest of the world plunged into Armageddon. This does not appear to have happened.
If you’ve lived in Brooklyn for more than a few decades, you may remember the Nuwaubians. Originally called the Ansaaru Allah Community, and operating under the guise of a fringe, all-black Muslim separatist group in the 70s and 80s, the group changed its name to the Nuwaubian Nation of Moors in the early 90s, and shifted focus to extraterrestrial origin stories that place African Americans at the top of the universal totem pole.
