I'm watching this documentary and man! the atrocities humans have committed in the name of religion are something else. It was mentioned one of the many tribes in Mesoamerica, the Aztecs do around 20,000 human sacrifices every year, and it can be bigger on special occasions. Jeez!

All these things are kinda making me think white people have something against Africans. Atrocities like this are hidden willfully forgotten while they propagate some old African rituals as vile, most evil, etc. As if Africa was the only place, or Africans were the only people that performed rituals the world finds repulsive today.

They European/American elite have had an agenda powered by their unbounded avarice since the age of pillaging that they call the “age of discovery”. You should be careful in accepting the picture they paint of the native Americans’ “savage” behaviors too because they exaggerate that just like they exaggerate African atrocities. The need to claim Egypt as “non-black” is the real reason behind the “Sub-Saharan Africa” designation that they use for most of the continent. In their rabid minds and the minds of some Africans who now call themselves “sub-Saharan”, Egypt is not a black civilization and is separated from Africa by the desert bla bla bla

Meanwhile, their animalistic behavior is painted as “civilized”.

The need to paint Africa as backwards is because the cradle of “western civilization” lies in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, and they can’t have the people they insist are inferior to be the founders of what they claim is theirs. Even the ancient Greeks that they try to ascribe the foundations of “western civilization” to acknowledge that influence of Egypt, “Ethiopia”, and other Mediterranean cultures.

The European elites are still operating under the dictates of Dum Diversas and until their victims remove the delusion of Christianity and god from their minds, the soft slavery will continue.

The thing is we for the most part didn't do this human sacrifice thing maybe when a King died his servants would be buried with him but in general mention of human sacrifice for deities stopped in around the 10th to 12th century

Nah, I didn't actually mention human sacrifice because I can't find any reference to it in African culture yet. I said, "They make it seem like Africans were the only ones that practiced rituals the world finds repulsive today". I was thinking of twin killings among others

Oh okay but i'd just like to make sure that you know that not all groups killed twin like with the yorubas twins are considered sacred and a blessing
