About

Yakub is a key figure within the Nation of Islam teachings in North America and is described as being a 6,600-year-old Black male scientist with a very large head or brain. According to NOI writings, Yakub's experiments are eventually what led to the creation of white people, as well as other types of non-Asian and non-Black people. Yakub is often seen as the progenitor and ancestor of white people, which is often used as a reference in memes depicting him found online.

Origin

Yakub first appeared in the writings and teachings of the Nation of Islam by W.D. Fard as part of a question and answer style pamphlet titled Lost Found Moslem Lesson No. 2 by Elijah Muhammad, published on February 20th, 1924.[5] It is unknown when the first online mention of Yakub first took place, but one of the first mentions of Yakub online in social circles comes from the WordPress page Heartiste, which included a picture of a Black man[1] with a large, bulbous head shape, on January 8th, 2015 (shown below).



Spread

Over the next several years, Yakub's presence online spread to other sites and platforms, such as iFunny and 4chan, where he began appearing in memes. For example, on April 23rd, 2015, iFunny user HacksAndFactz_2015[2] uploaded a fact-style meme that stated that the "Nation of Islam believes that white people were created by Yakub in the Greek islands of Patmos," while having the flag of the Nation of Islam used as the backdrop (shown below).

After the initial memes about Yakub and the concept started spreading in the mid-to-late 2010s, "Yakubposting" took off, with "Yakub-maxxing" becoming a frequent term used whenever someone posted a picture with an enlarged head, either through Photoshop or actual genetic factors. This can be seen in an iFunny post[3] by user BenShapiro on September 11th, 2021, featuring an image of streamer Tyler1 (shown below).

A furthering of Yakub memes comes from the supposed claim that he created white people, with various images and GIFs made that express either joy, disappointment, outright rage or pride at his creation of white people and the culture that follows. For example, an iFunny post by user free_twovie[4] features an older Black man that is being called "Doctor Yakub" in a picture with two white women, which the meme claims he just created (shown below).

Raymond Spencer Washington D.C. 2022 Shooting

On April 22nd, 2022, Raymond Spencer, a 23-year-old man from Virginia, shot four people and then killed himself in northwest Washington, D.C. He reportedly fired at a school from his apartment across the street and then killed himself as police arrived. A photo posted on Twitter[6] later by the D.C. police department showed the guns Spencer used in his apartment, as well as a picture of Yakub hanging on his wall (seen below).


In the following days after the Yakub poster in Spencer's apartment was revealed by D.C. police, many reacted to the image with confusion, leading to "Yakub" trending on Twitter and other memes being made in reaction to it.[7] One such example was tweeted by Twitter[8] user Real_Xi_Jinping on April 23rd, who said "What's with the Yakub.png on the Simpsons cloud background?," receiving over 300 likes in two days.

AVERAGE DABABY FAN When you invent the ideology of Tricknology', but it pisses off the king of the surface people and he tries to put you and your followers in jail, but there isn't enough space in the prision, so the king is forced to negotiate with you and the two of you decide that it would be best if you got a s--- load of money and resources in exchange for putting yourself and your followers into a seif-imposed exile so you and your 60,000 followers sail off to what is the modern-day island of Patmos, but your followers discover the eugenics experiments that you were conducting in order to breed a lighter- skinned race of people and how you were killing babies that had darker complections so 95% of your followers abandon you and run away to what is modern-day Africa, but that's okay, becuase when you get to Patmos you have enough people to build a society with laws that faciliate the breeding of a race of lighter-skinned people through eugenics and after 600 years of work your descendents manage to create what is now known as the white race, which ends up ruling over the world for 6,000 years.

"This beautiful race are the originals and this evil race are artificial people who were created later by evil science" is literally the backstory of orcs.

I find it interesting that black supremacists are going with the "Black people are the original race and are therefore superior" when studies have shown that Africans have the least amount of Neanderthal DNA of all modern peoples, which to me implies they might be one of the youngest extant racial identities. You think these racist schizos would've gone with the "White people are relics of the past and we're new and improved" nonsense instead of this.
