What is the Meaning of Hotep?

Hetep and Respect Good Spirit, I have often opened conversations with this phrase. From time to time, I am asked what does Hetep (Hotep-common American pronunciation) mean.
Rendition of Imhotep and Mut 

Rather then writing a new answer each time I am asked, I have decided to create this short blog post and just refer people to it, to save some wear and tear on my digits.
Htp = Hotep (Hetep)

The word comes from Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt) from a time going back more then 6,000 years. It is still used today by those who have some knowledge of the ancient traditions of our ancestors. For Cultural Soldiers it is the standard greeting.
The Name Imhotep in Metu Neter (Hieroglyphics) Bird = M Feather = I
Let's Go To The Video Tape

It should be noted that CultureGraphically Cultural Citizens and Sleeping Giants in the Black community would typically not be familiar with this term. Most Non-Blacks are also not familiar with the term. One of the reasons Cultural Soldiers utilize the term in conversations with these individuals, is in an effort to raise Cultural Literacy regarding Blacks and thus improve Cultural Health in the general population.

Hetep means peace, not just saying peace, but also sending peaceful energy. It has been my experience that if you start a conversation with peace and respect it is more likely to be mutually beneficial.

The respect aspect of my greeting is taken from a famous radio personality Bob Law who use to have a show out of Washington D.C. He would greet his callers (it was a call in radio show) with "I Respect You" and often the callers would respond in kind. It alway struck me how remarkably well his conversations went, even on the most difficult topics. So it has been my practice to combine some of the ancient wisdom with some of Mr. Law's modern wisdom to aid me in my small Cultural Health contributions.

As a wikipedian many years ago I put up a Hetep stub on wikipedia. It is remarkable to see how that puny stub has grown. For more information on hetep see the link below.

Newsvine - Open Letter/Challenge to Mr. Cosby.

I Rudy Aunk do hereby challenge the honorable Mr. Bill Cosby to Culture Graphically pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Specifically Mr. Cosby, I challenge you to advance yourself from your current psychosocial position of Cultural Citizen, to the higher cultural ground of Cultural Soldier.

Your new book Come on People is helpful. Hitting our young Sleeping Giants over the head with a 2x4 to get their attention is needed. Focusing on parents and education is a much needed piece of the cultural puzzle. Trying to move a soul from Sleeping Giant Hood to Cultural Citizen Hood is a good thing.

I understand that I have used some terms that you may not be familure with.

Please take a minute to come up to speed on CultureGraphics as it relates to melanin folks.CultureGraphics 101 -The Soldier, Citizen, Giant Outline, click here.

As you know, your work in I Spy and The Cosby Show broke the Amos and Andy paradigm and people were living and laughing with African Americans instead of at Black people. You helped literally change the way Black people saw themselves in America and the way Americans saw us.

You have more ground breaking work left in you. In fact, you are one of the few people at this point in time with access to the financial and educational resources, to again utilize the media to help guide our community to the next level.

As you achieve Cultural Soldier Hood (I am confident you will succeed in this) I challenge you to produce two movies, First and epic movie about Classical African Civilization and then a children friendly cartoon series that educates them about the Classical Africans.

It is only fitting that because you played a doctor in your first ground breaking production, that you should play the great Classical African physician Imhotep, in this ground breaker. Think about it, a movie on the scale of “Moses” about the untold story of Classical African Civilization. A movie, lets call it Imhotep for the sake of this discussion, that will gather more eyeballs then Roots, as it edifies our people and the world about the original “roots”.

Now that you have our attention, what are you going to do with it? My suggestion, supercharge our education and once again establish a new paradigm for our youth and America at large.

Hey Bill, if by chance this open letter should reach you, I will be easy to find. After shooting some hoops with Fat Albert, we have sat down near the court and he is asking me some questions about this Cultural Health thing.

Condition Red! Taserism is on the risE

With the rise of hate crimes, rentaCop attacks in malls and air ports and other incidents of tasering, there is a new and rising need for Taser/Stun Guns or Mace Pepper Spray means of self defense. Unfortunately, there is a new fear being induced into everyone from joggers to unarmed students asking questions in a university setting. The general disregard for personal rights with the rise of Taser terrony is alarming.
There is a need for a new mindset of anti taserism. In this context Ps Zap, the pen and the Spider man Stun Gun become evermore important considerations regarding one's personal safety in Bush's America. The Constitutional right to bear arms my mean different things in different times. What do you think?
What we are doing to America and her young are not lost on America’s youth.

Britney Spears does Gimme More UF taser kid Remix!

In case you did not notice, there is a Sleeping Giant African American involved.

In case you missed the original tasering of an unarmed student in front of the anti-humanist Presidential candidate (or at least obviously diminished testicular fortitude) see video below.
