Tariq Nasheed (1974–) is a Hotep hustler black supremacist, rapper, and pick up artist from Detroit in the US of A. He is best known for his Hidden Colors series of black supremacist documentaries and more recently the homophobic and transphobic documentary Buck Breaking. He also goes by the names King Flex or K-Flex, and Tariq Elite.

Nasheed is banned from entering the UK, and describes himself as a "race baiter" but bizarrely The Independent describes him as an "anti-racism campaigner".[1]

Rap career[edit]

Yo ass! Wash it!

Nasheed's versatility can be seen in his moving and thoughtful rap career where he was known as K-Flex or King Flex. One of his better known songs is Wash yo Ass released in 1999.[2] He became a gazillionaire as a result and put his money to good use in ground-breaking history documentaries.

Pick up artist[edit]

Gnash head Nasheed is the author of books such as The Art of Mackin', The Art Of Gold Digging and Play or Be Played, These focus on PUA techniques within the African American community. These techniques may not work on white women who Nasheed thinks are inferior anyway.

Black Supremacism and anti-white racism[edit]

Nasheed’s racist views on white people are one of the few legitimate examples of anti-white racism in the United States. He is mostly known for his borderline black supremacist views and his dismissal of most black women as traitorous "Negro bed wenches" who supposedly aspire only to bedding white men. Ironically, his wife is half white, and Tariq himself has had numerous relationships with white females.[3][4]

Hidden Colors[edit]

Genuine ancient Egyptian art. The actual Egyptians (right) believed themselves to differ in appearance from both the darker NubiansWikipedia (second from left) and lighter Caucasians, despite the claims of Tariq Nasheed and of White Supremacists. Wall painting from the tomb of Seti I.
"Many ancient African cultures documented how melanin related to the pineal gland, and they understood a spiritual correlation to this. The ancient Egyptians were very knowledgeable of this information. So this film is just giving you the history of that.” (Hidden Colors 2: the Triumph of Melanin)[5]

This is a series of cheap looking pseudo-history documentaries where the same group of half a dozen black American people opine on Ancient Egypt, modern America etc. They often refer to Africa as if it was a single country and culture (instead of a very large complex, culturally diverse continent). Some of the palest contributors like Valentine seem most eager to emphasise their blackness, even saying melanin gives you superpowers.

Black Africans are said in these documentaries to have founded every civilisation including those of China and the Americas. The pharmaceutical industry is also out to get blacks.[6]

In a gushing article bemoaning tbe fact Tariq Nasheed had been barred from the UK, British newspaper The Independent opined:

For those who don’t know, Hidden Colors charts the history of Africans in America and around the world, and de-constructs white supremacy and structural racism, explaining the origins and the impact and methodology. They are the only films of their kind, certainly over the last decade or more in my view, and revolutionary in terms of understanding the times we live in.

Revolutionary, that is, if you think undermining Asian and Native American history is somehow progressive, or that mixing fact and fiction indiscriminately in Dan Brown fashion is in any way helpful to anyone but the bank balances of those who appeared in the films. However the Independent sheepishly admits that Tariq Nasheed has "come under fire and criticism from some sections of the black community, specifically from black women and the LGBT+ community." Ye, and then some. The article furthermore compares the series to seventies TV drama Roots - the difference being that Alex Haley was a better writer than Nasheed will ever be, and this fictional series had more of a basis in fact.

Short version: everybody on Earth was black. Pharaohs black. Hawaiians black. Native Americans black(er than today). Whites are intrinsically evil.

Hidden Colors: The Untold History Of People Of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent (2011)[edit]

The first film in the series was part crowdfunded and part bankrolled by Nasheed himself.

Claims made in the documentary include Jesus being black (rather than Middle Eastern), black people being the first to circumnavigate the world, and setting up the first civilisation in China.

The real-life Moors were the instigators of the African slave trade, with cities such as Timbuktu and Algiers being based around it... Yet Nasheed and some of the other Afrocentrists on this documentary wish African Americans to identify with them.

Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph of Melanin (2012)[edit]

This installment features discussion of the psychic powers bestowed by having high melanin content in your body, and also how Indigenous Australians are actually African (despite having left Africa tens of thousands of years ago and having no contact with the continent until modern times, unlike Europeans.)

Hidden Colors 3: The Rules of Racism (2014)[edit]

This discusses race relations between whites and blacks, particularly in the USA. The main theme is quite moderate compared to other documentaries.

Hidden Colors 4: The Religion of White Supremacy (2016)[edit]

Again, a mixture of fact and fiction blended together, Dan Brown style. The pseudohistory in this documentary undermines the real material.

Hidden Colors 5: The Art of Black Warfare (2019)[edit]

This installment discusses black resistance, both real and imagined (since these documentaries blend fact and fiction indiscriminarely. This is the documentary which is said to have caused Nasheed's barring from the UK.

It also features the well-known rappers Ice-T and Chuck D (of Public Enemy) who probably should know better.

Buck Breaking[edit]

Lord Cornbury, slave owner and alleged cross-dresser.
"The white LGBT community, they've always had an anti-black sector of their society that has always negatively targeted black people. Lord Cornbury, going back to antebellum slavery, Cornbury was one of the first governors of the province of New York and New Jersey. He was a transgender, this was a person who dressed like a woman and also, this was the person who helped expand slavery in the United States against black people. — Tariq Nasheed, director of Buck Breaking (2021) [7]

In this documentary, Nasheed and his friends claim zoophilia, pedophilia, and homosexuality are all integral parts of European culture. (Despite all three being forbidden by law under most jurisdictions for centuries.) Tariq's fixation on homosexuals has been noted before, although he is adamantly not gay.[8]

He furthermore states that homosexuality was an integral form of "buck breaking", a kind of male rape practised by white slave masters to force their submission. This alleged trope is traced into the modern age, where it is claimed the LGBT+ agenda is being used to undermine black masculinity,[9] and to depopulate the black race.[10] To demonstrate this point, the documentary shows shots of twerking male backsides.

The documentary is a curious blend of condemnation of various things, and specially commissioned artwork that looks suspiciously like torture porn. It also cannot make its mind up on feminism - on the one hand it says feminism is an African American invention and on the other, a means to undermine black people. Only one woman speaks on the documentary.

Buck Breaking was, of course, released during gay pride month.
