And one thing I have noticed amongst them is that they bash Africans whenever its convenient and claim Africas greatness when it suits them! But its cool.

There are 2 things I can't stomach; shellfish and cultural hypocrisy.

Who built up America if not for African slaves?

Who added substance to life if not for African entertainers, we (Africans) even contributed to world-wide music style of today wit out polyphonic melodies.

If not for African slaves, half of amendments made to the US constitution to "guarantee" equal livelihood (bullshoit) today may have never been possible.

You have African immigrants of today building up America's economy as students and workers.


etc etc.

‎"Eurocentric historians argue that Europe gave civilization to Africa, which is a coomplete inversion of the truth. The first civiulized Europeans were the Greeks, who were chiefly civilized by the Africans of the Nile Valley. The Greeks transmitted this culture to the Romans, who finally lost it, bringing on a dark age of five hundred years. Civilization was restored to Europe when another group of Africans, the Moors, brought this dark age to an end, meanwhile recivilizing the Christian barbarians of Europe."-from The Story of the Moors by Stanlet Lane-Poole

The Greeks were said to create geometry but how can the pyramids be built without the Pythagorean theorem? Africans already had that. The Washington monument is a representation of an obelisk. African origins of math, science, astronomy, technology, architecture, art, etc. Read up on the Dogon tribe they are great too.

@Nebeuwa It will be very helpful for all children of african descent to learn these when they are still in infancy
because that is where their mis-education begins. When they become professional scientists, engineers and doctors,
their minds are already "hard-coded" with caucasian imagery.

The medical and engineering Journals that our nigerian professionals depend on (and contribute to) will never write
about these african-americans.

I feel that many Africans do not know many of the scientific contributions that African Americans have made to the world. Many goods that people use everyday were invented by African Americans, but people do not mention their accomplishments. Blacks people around the world are able to invent things, when they put their minds to it. We are no different from anyone else, and I would hope people will realize that one day.

The names that I have mentioned are only a few of the hundreds of blacks that have contributed to technology and scientific achievement.

Or you can say our earliest African ancestors populated the Earth. Therefore, everyone is descended from an African. It does not matter if you are European, Asian or Native American. cheesy

Your ancestors came from the motherland.

jantavanta: The White Race have skillfully re-writen history for the Black Race to believe that all inventions are
a White Man's revelation.

Writing in began in Africa! Mathematics and electronic science as well as civil engineering. We did not need Galileo
to tell us that the Sun was the center of the solar system.
It was only after Napoleon raided Egypt with a team of european researchers/looters that we started hearing
of Fourier trigonmetric series and electromagnetism.

The ancient african texts that were used to form the Torah, Bible and Koran
contain inventions written in a symbolic language. For example,
a "chariot of fire" is a rocket engine. "Commandments" are a set of commands; an instruction set for
a microprocessor made from Silicon, which is the primary constituent of a "clay tablet". The fabrication atmosphere
has to be "holy"; completely dust free. The integrated circut is etched using "a bright light"; ultraviolet-photolithograpy.


All Black children in this world are taught in schools to believe that inventions are
are not their domain.



Clap clap. Best post in this thread.

Nebeuwa:

The term is African American. I do not know when Black American came into the lexicon, but most blacks in the United States prefer the term African American. And I am very proud to be half African American, since I was born to a Nigerian father and an African American mother. My people have accomplished a lot in the United States even though they were faced with a lot of adversity.

See, I'm different in this aspect. I do not like the moniker "AFRICAN AMERICAN". I prefer to be called BLACK American or American of African Descent. As I descend from beautiful West Africans.

Nnenna1: ^^It seems the opposite in a lot of places. Quite a few African Americans are quick to drop "African" from their identity and roll along with being just American Blacks.

Not that I blame them sometimes. It is natural to associate oneself with success and distance oneself from the opposite. African Americans in a bid for survival and self-determination will think: why settle for "lowly" Africa when we already are a part of America (most powerful empire of the 20-21st century)- even if we have had a raw deal in American history? Much as I admire their historical strength of will don't you think that there is an inkling of truth in AA being the most european-like Blacks in the Americas?

Sad but true sad . Although you can find African Americans who take pride in their African heritage. Like yourself -seeing as you have a an AA mother and Nigerian dad you're more likely to find such AA's in your circle.


My father is an american born man of Nigerian/American heritage and my mother is of Black American and Puerto Rican American ethnicities. But I'm one of the ones who would tell anyone in a hot second that my father is African American and I (his daughter) am American of African descent. It doesn't come from a lack of pride in Africa, if that were the case, I wouldn't be here. It comes more from what is more of an accurate descripton in my opinion.

badmrkt: looking at all the inventions and their inventors it is clearly seen that the white demoninate field.
what's happening to the blacks?does it mean they can't invent or what?tell me what a black man both dead and alive has done to help transform the world.

Ancient Egypt, and before you get on your high horse and lie to yourself that Ancient Egypt wasn't black, one white honest guy tells the truth:

That said, Blacks have contributed Music, Food (coffee, rice, etc. etc.) I just don't want to have to list the thousands of things. But you sound very naive

Do you think America's law system would be as refined as it is now if not for the fight black ppl had to put up for their liberty, freedom and pursuit of happiness? Even tho the law system is still not fair to us, it has improved from what it was.

Do you think without black ppl's plight across the world. . . . lemme stop.
