Prollem? Don't tell me Africans are untouchable.


I'm reluctant to believe it existed to the extent that people promote it as especially since the same white people writing history didn't believe Africans were capable of building Egyptian pyramids. If you believe the slave trade happened so readily without any force and ignored the British and Portugal colonies that were populating Africa, then you should also believe that Native Americans readily gave up their land and they celebrated their new found European friends by having a turkey dinner.

Nope, I never learned about African history in school and I always wondered why and we skimmed past egypt and off to greece, rome, and even the Incas. But I self study a lot and learned on my own and learned a great deal about African history.

African Americans think African history is basically Egyptian history.

Public schools in the US taught us about Africa! They really did.

Slave trade Cry(our bad y'all! But hey! The Africans sold Black people too so we're not totally to blame here.)
..and that's it.

Harriet TubmanOuch
Sojourner TruthOuch
MLK (Malcolm X, who's he?!)Big smile

And lastly, slavery is taught in passing. No need to be taught slavery for many other reasons in that part of the world.

I can see why AAs are mad but not every African tribe was involved in the trade.

Dude is just sour and misinformed for many reasons..

Being a typical obnoxious American with his all Africans are from the same place attitude



Nobody said she or her countrymen were at fault. But you don't dismiss your own like that in their own country they slaved and died for. If it weren't for slavery in America, she wouldn't be where she is today. I'm pretty sure I'm not descended from S<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;">outhern Africans but I still address my people with more respect than that.</span>
<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;">
</span>
<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4;">Picture them asking me if I learned about apartheid and saying some dumb shyt like the world doesn't revolve around South Africa you know. Censored</span>


see here is the crux of the matter and is where your analogy fails

1. slavery happened centuries ago, and the system takes measures to systematically down play that part of history.. thus it is highly unlikely they would willingly export their history of brutality

2. if i asked the average american on colonialism and imperialism (and its effect on history either by the defacement and destruction of historical artefacts and since we are talking about a zimbabwean traditionally historical figures like nehanda kaguvi and their equivalent within other tribes etc etc etc) i probably wouldnt get an answer .. and it ended much later than slavery

3. apartheid is in recent history and ended in our lifetime/ generation and thus an equal comparison would be the civil rights movement

you're just pissed off for the sake of being pissed off.

her response was more dismissive to the paparazzi than it was dismissive of history

though she was absolutely correct in her response

4. you gots to chill /eric b

Sadly I have to agree with this and not just if you asked them about past history but if you asked about CURRENT affairs any place other than America.   I know people who don't understand a damn thing about ANY other country and with Africa its like Why is Africa dealing with color-ism when they have a whole black "country" all to themselves and should have a great self-imageDead?? 

Her answer exemplified how stupid and "bait-y" that question was.   Living in the bubble is bad for your brain.

Ignorant ass comment. The world does NOT revolve around America. Yes she is getting paid in American currency. It's the land of opportunity!
