The new video was shot by a member of the adult group.
Men identify themselves as members of the Hebrew Israelites, a movement that believes some Black Americans are the descendants of an ancient Israeli tribe. A man in a long black coat does most of the talking and shouting, sometimes striking a stick on the concrete to accent. Another man, dressed in black, holds a poster with the names of the 12 tribes of Israel in one column and the other described as the corresponding "slave names" of different racial identities.
Another a man with a sparkling necklace and a star of David hanging around his neck, sometimes recites writing while the man who shoots occasionally adds a comment.
