Negros still holding on to the Slave Master’s Mythological Deities like Bull-Shit, Showtime at the Apollo.
Now I have seen Dumb Ass Steve Harvey hanging out with Louis Farrakhan and Members of the so-called Conscious Community (i.e. Ashra Kwesi). And no one has made the suggestion to Steve Harvey to change the name to “SHOWTIME AT THE IMHOTEP”. Imhotep was an Egyptian polymath (a person expert in many areas of learning) best known as the architect of King Djoser‘s Step Pyramid at Saqqara. His name means “He Who Comes in Peace” and he is the only Egyptian besides Amenhotep to be fully deified, becoming the god of wisdom and medicine (or, according to some sources, god of science, medicine, and architecture). Imhotep was a priest, vizier to King Djoser (and possibly to the succeeding three kings of the Third Dynasty), a poet, physician, mathematician, astronomer, and architect. Although his Step Pyramid is considered his greatest achievement, he was also remembered for his medical treatises which regarded disease and injury as naturally occurring instead of punishments sent by gods or inflicted by spirits or curses. He was deified by the Egyptians in c. 525 BCE and was equated with the demi-god of healing Asclepius by the Greeks. His works were still extremely popular and influential during the Roman Empire and the emperors Tiberius and Claudius both had their temples inscribed with praise of the benevolent god Imhotep.
Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto, twin brother of Artemis. He was the god of music, and he is often depicted playing a golden lyre. He was also known as the Archer, far shooting with a silver bow; the god of healing, giving the science of medicine to man; the god of light; and the god of truth. One of Apollo‘s most important daily tasks was to harness his four-horse chariot, in order to move the Sun across the sky. Apollo was an oracular god, as he was the prophetic deity in the Oracle in Delphi. People from all over the known world travelled there to learn what the future held for them, through his priestess Pythia. The god was also worshipped in the island of Delos, which was initially dedicated to his twin sister Artemis. In relation to the rituals and practices that took place in Delos and Delphi, it could be said that there were two completely distinct cults in honour of Apollo. As already mentioned, Apollo was also considered as the god of healing and medicine, either through himself or through his son Asclepius. At the same time, he could also bring forth disease and plague with his arrows; it was considered that a god that can cause disease is also able to prevent it.
Since you Negro’s have been so bold as to take down the Confederate Flag. Why not change the name of “Showtime at the Apollo”, to “Showtime at the Imhotep”.
