What black nationalists? The Black Israelites were not nationalists.

Why hasn't this hoax thread been shut down yet? 27 pages long? The op's whole original narrative was debunked a long time ago. Gramblers thread which involves what REALLY happened should be the main thread on this.
Throw this in the trash bin!
Ben Ammi Ben-Israel established the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem in Chicago, Illinois, in 1966, at a time when black nationalism was on the rise as a response to the Civil Rights Movement. In 1969, after a sojourn in Liberia, Ben Ammi and about 30 Hebrew Israelites moved to Israel. Over the next 20 years, nearly 600 more members left the United States for Israel. As of 2006, about 2,500 Hebrew Israelites live in Dimona and two other towns in the Negev region of Israel, where they are widely referred to as Black Hebrews. In addition, there are Hebrew Israelite communities in several major American cities, including Chicago, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.
In late 2008, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) described as black supremacist what it called "the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement". It wrote that the members of such groups "believe that Jews are devilish impostors and ... openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery". The SPLC also said that "most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence".
Yeah, I'd say they're definitely not nationalists considering one of them was shouting about America being destroyed in a nuclear conflagration.
They are racists and black supremacists, though.
He was an electrician and refrigeration technician who went AWOL a few times and was never even deployed overseas, not a, "recon ranger."
It was a high school chant, in support of their school to drown out the racist black "Isrealites" with the permission from the student's chaperone in an effort to diffuse the situation.

What did the kids do wtong?
I'm going to leave this conversation with, this should never have been a story to begin with, the media fell for a lie and had to walk it back, Philips was never in danger or threatened and caused it himself and the partisan fanatics need to let it die and fade into the background.
