Another good one.  The man who starts talks for about 25 minutes and then introduces John Henrik Clarke at 27 minutes in.  Just skip to that markLOL






at about 12 minutes he explains why diop's research and assertions are discounted

Don't make no damn senseLOL.

Think about what happens when you read things and don't ask any questions about what you just read because somebody told you it was the final authority and everything in it is true and indisputable.  That should NEVER happen no matter what type of text you're readingStern Smile

Everything is equal except the reader. 

can it be it was all so simple

@kfoxx: I'm seven minutes into the first video and the bilingual translation is driving me crazy. I understood what he said the first time . Oh well, back to listening...

@ Jolie yes that is a little distracting.  They should have just dubbed it for English and left it in French.  I had to put on my super patience hatEmbarrassed

So far I've listened until 41:30.

I do notice something that I think is worth mentioning though and that makes me chuckle a bit. Diop as well as the translator are very careful to avoid terminology that the African American audience might find offensive. It kind of illustrates the differences in the French and British ways of expressing oneself.

At one point, Diop is discussing a depiction of an Ancient Egyptian by an artist of the times. He's trying to say that the drawing clearly illustrates black features but he hesitates on how to formulate this and ends up saying in French that he was told not to use a certain word (which is most likely the word "negroid" ) although it is a word that is perfectly acceptable in the context of scientific and anthropological discourse. He stumbles around and then ends up with "black features". The way he danced around the whole sentence made me laugh.

Also when asked how the Ancient Egyptians looked, he responds that Ancient Egyptians themselves generally described themselves as black and are to be considered as black, even towards the end of those grand Egyptian dynasties where people were already quite mixed (meaning that even with the mixing, their blackness remained evident). He says this twice during the video and twice the translator omits the mixed race part and just says black. You can tell that both Diop and the translator are very aware of the sensibilities of the audience.

I finally listened to the whole thing. It's too bad that they did it this way because some people won't have the patience to listen to the whole thing in its present form. This could have been said in 15-20 minutes if it had been dubbed or subtitled. It was a bit painful to watch at one point
Brilliant man though. He knows his stuff.
