That's what I'm doing right now. I can believe that there is an element of the slaves that were traded to the European that were Israelites, I just can't conceive of them being the majority. Not to the point of stating that people of the diaspora are descended from a completely different people altogether. Did any of these Israelites settle in places like the Congo, Benin or Cameroon, for example? We're talking about as much as 100 million people taken from Africa. I don,t think there could have been that many at the time of the trade that were Israelites to satisfy Europeans' gruesome appetites to populate all of the Americas. But I don't know much about it, so I'll read up.

HD so you never rate other Cbn nation before that?! I'm kidding. Which book that now? tell me bout it

The song Many rivers to cross is stuck in my head now LOLCry



Lol I just never here of any other island trying to revolt. It's a novel aboutone of the biggest revolts in Jamaica and it was lead by 5/6 women. Even though it ended up failing it just shed a lot of light about how hard a revolt was even though slavrs out numbered whites.

Sounds like a book I'll have to pick up, not familiar with it. But you had never heard of the maroons before? There were revolts in various islands, they just didn't succeed in overthrowing the system except for Haiti (come to think of it, Haiti didn't really succeed completely either, when you look at it. The mullatos kind of took over where the whites left off, when you think about it)

In the documentary, they said that Washington had about 500 slaves. Which is a lot, but I remember hearing that the name Washington was the most predominant name amongst AAs. Can anyone explain that further?

i'm watching now but gates confuses the hell out of me. i'm sorry. 

i just can't understand how someone who claims to be so proud of their history not only constantly points out the white part of their makeup but also marry white.

its like the linebacker from the patriots shouting about the greatness of team only to walk around wearing a falcon's jersey everyday. silly analogy, i know, but still...i'm just baffled.

anyway, why don't we ever hear anything about the trans saharan slave trade? the arabs/muslims were all up in the slave trade mix.

Yeah, his insistence on underlying his black guests' partial white DNA (and his own) can be annoying. I personally think that the numbers are inflated anyway. But I can't say the mentality surprises me. It's something that blacks of the diaspora are infected with, really. Always hanging on so tight to their otherness. But the good info in his documentaries outweigh the suspect info, imo.

i agree, jolie. as far as gates is concerned, i'ma just leave it alone for now. take the marrow and throw out the bone. 

just wanna throw this out there as something that might aide in your search about the distinctions between the races. 

Quote Zondervan's Compact Bible Dictionary: Ham - The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes.
