I guess you have a point there, our forefathers had almost everything working out well for them. Unfortunately it lead to the greatest mistake in Africa "SLAVE TRADE"
abegi dat is not true. malaria and other tropical diseases have been ravaging Africa for centuries, even before the coming of whites why have we not been able to find a solution?

You were right. I have gone to read about the phenomenon. Seems like areas close to the beach are being evacuated.

I do not make statements if I do not know the facts.

The Portuguese missionaries had contact with black Africans, not the other way round.
This and the slave trade was in the same Era.

Europeans had access to horses, Arabs to camels, Americans to lamas, what did we have to ease long distance travel.

Moreover the nature of our forests Riverland deserts were hell.
To cut it short, we never mastered the art of distant trade and exchange of ideas.
dats not true. have u heard of the trans sahara trade? it spanned from parts of west Africa through to north Africa and possibly the middle east.

The trans Sahara trade was vertical not horizontal, most west African trade was vertical not horizontal. .
Maybe you need to read about Gensis khan, the Mongols, the Persians, Arabians, huns, and Vikings.

They all passed through Europe, burned Europe down and rebuilt Europe.

Africans didn't move an inch in cultural ideological exchange in relation to Europe.

Last week, Hurricane Irma shocked the world by decimating the island nations of the Caribbean. Now that the powerful storm has made landfall in the US and the Bahamas, a terrifying rare phenomenon is occurring that has left residents in absolute disbelief – and it could be the sign of something much worse to come.

If these are the only crime Amerikkka commits all around the world, I might still consider it better. But meh, even the sea, when transformed to an ink, is insufficient to pour down Amerikkka's crimes on this planet.

the hurricanes are assigned the names of the meteorologists that tracked them. Most of these positions are held by females,
hence the female names. Every once in a while you get a male name as per the official in charge! cool

Where are those delusioned atheists that doubt the crossing of the red sea by Moses and the Isrealites?
This is a replica of what transpired. A strong wind pushed back the sea and created dry land.

what do you mean? trading routs connected w African communities to north Africa and parts of Asia and you are saying vertical kor horizontal. meanwhile ghengis khan and the others u mentioned are from Asia which shares a land connection with Europe. Europe was not able to venture into the seas until a they developed navigational technology and large ships that could withstand the vagaries of the seas.

Vertical routes were transsaharan routes.
Horizontal routes were trans Atlantic.
Western Africa could not trade with their selves due to the nature of their forests and coastal lines but could trade with the Arabs due to the savanna plains.

That being said trade and interaction was very limited along the west African and Central African region in respect to the European and Asian regions as I mentioned earlier due to no domesticated mode of transport i.e camels and horses..

The Europeans had mastered sea travel long before the coming of our lord Jesus.

That is past now.
What is holding the black man from moving forward is what has held them from moving forward in all ages.

Greed, prejudice, mental Laziness and god mentality.

"
west africans did not trade with themselves"
who did they trade with then. Europeans were not able to venture far out into the seas until they developed navigational technology that could help in sea travel. FYI the age of exploration started around the 16th century. read more about it here:

Europeans mastered the seas during the age of discovery and exploration. Before then the Mediterranean sea has been mastered long before Jesus came. Ships were going from Asia minor all the way to Spain. The Mediterranean Civilization was built on sea voyages, trading was primarily done by sea. There is evidence that Norsemen got to America centuries before Columbus or Vespucci. Africans traded along land corridors mainly, there was negligible trading if any at all across any seas.

In fact Islands that are very close to Africa such as Madagascar was first populated by people from the Indian Ocean, from as far away as borneo. Seychelles is even a closer island but African Tribes closer to it never inhabited it either because they don't have too because there was no reason to or the trouble to travel the seas was too much to handle.
