Message to Africans and black people elsewhere (Part 1)
This message, therefore, is meant for those Africans and black people elsewhere who've bought European version of history, line, hook, and sinker. Its for those who the education system has denied the true history of Africa, those who still hold the wrong impression that white people civilized us and brought us everything in Africa.
First of all, its not a theory that black people had been on the planet before any other race. Its a scientific fact proved by the science of archaeology, genetics, paleontology. These branches of knowledge have all proved beyond any doubt that human life originated in Africa, and that the first humans ever lived had lived in Africa. It was from here in Africa that we populated the rest of the world. Therefore, black people had been on this earth alone for millions of years before white people arrived the scene. I didn't say so, white people themselves say so.
Science confirms a massive exodus of people out of Africa. Please see a scientific research on African migration "out". See another research on African migration "in". It kept happening that way for a very long time, until the world climate stabilized and people were able to live in a permanent location and were able to begin farming during what's called the neolithic period.
In the case of Africans, they were migrating to other parts of the world because at that time the world climate wasn't stable. There were severe and erratic climatic change happening then, such that sometimes it would rain a whole month non-stop and people would be terrified as it seemed the whole earth was inundated by water. Ancient civilizations like the Incas and Mayans in South America, China, Africa, e.t.c all recorded global inundations, even the bible recorded it. This rain and inundation could also turn to severe drought in a blink of an eye.
Yes, albinos would be the right name to call them at that time. Albinism is a result of genetic mutation that stops the skin from producing melanin, it depigments the skin, depriving it the ability to manufacture melanin.
Soon, a population of albinos appeared on the ice, and they married among themselves. Imagine where you have an albino marry another albino, they have children who are albinos, and they also marry another albino and have children, and so on...... Eventually, you'll create a white race. That's exactly how black people created white people- literally.
Those with melanin are generally happier, artistic and cancer free, which is why white people will go to any length to suntan their bodies at beaches around the world, so they could feel good like the original man of the earth. Ask them after leaving those beaches and they'll tell you they feel good and much happier about themselves. Let me not get ahead of myself here.
Other non-physical changes also took place in their psychology, belief system, and the way they think of others. The type of society you live would influence your belief system in terms of what you'll perceive as wrong or right. For instance, in Singapore chewing a bubble gum is considered an offense. In Netherlands prostitution is legal, and there's nothing wrong with that. In Saudi Arabia its an offense for a woman to drive her car, e.t.c. Therefore, once those Africans departed Africa, and spread to different parts of the world, each group eventually evolved into a nation with different types of philosophies about life. You can imagine being cut off from the rest of the world, living in ice region for thousands of years without proper sunlight, versus someone living in Africa with sunlight everyday. Over many thousands of years each group would think differently. And that's exactly what happened.
Let me emphasize here, this didn't make them more intelligent than the Africans they left, rather, it put them in a situation to begin inventing ways to fabricate tools to solve basic needs that those in Africa took for granted. If we evolved on top of ice in Africa, we would have done exactly the same. In fact, some scholars has argued, if we evolved on ice in Africa, we may have become like Europeans and may have invaded the rest for the world stealing from them. That would be a good topic for debate for philosophers, anthropologists, historians, and psychologists.
Also, no vegetation means no food, so they must be selfish with whatever little they have, they must be ready to fight one another to defend their food supply as a hungry man could come steal another's food. So, they were hostile, greedy, needy, selfish, aggressive in nature. Eventually, they became a militarized society to the extent one's reputation depended on how many wars they've waged, and how many people he/she has subdued- which is why slavery originated in the caucus mountains as well. See the true history of slavery and slave acquisition in Africa.
This is a long history and I don't want to get into all that. But, bottom line, as I'll explain, white people would use their militaristic nature to build weapons of war that they'll later use to conquer the easy going peaceful black people in Africa and others in the tropics. I'll get to that soon.
During the dark ages in Europe, they invented all sort of ways to torture and kill themselves- something they'll later export to the rest of the world to subdue indigenous people wherever they went. Today, they do have the Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments. This museum is located in Prague the capital of Czech Republic, and anybody can go see for themselves. See here for some killing machines invented in the dark ages and also this link.
On the contrary, the people evolving in Africa and other locations in the tropics had easy access to food as we lived in forested region. We didn't need a lot of science to meet our needs. The saying "low hanging fruits" would be the best way to describe our surroundings at that time. We were naturally blessed with food, land, forest, good climate. We didn't lack anything to sustain basic living. Everywhere you looked around you, it was all forest with fruits to eat. Rodents and other animals are all there in the bush for your meat. African legend have it that there was this animal that used to sleep on the road to sunbath, and it wouldn't run when people were passing. This animal was so naive they called it "idiot" because it couldn't run. All you needed do is see it, kill it and you have meat for you an family. Even children killed it.
In other parts you have:- Aboakyir festival, Panafest, The Homowo Festival, The Hogbetsotso Festival, Bouake Carnival, Fêtes des Masques (Festival of Masks), Fête du Dipri, Festival-au-Desert, Festival on the Niger, Fête des Masques, Crossing of the cattle, International Camel Derby & Festival, Nairobi International Book Fair, Mombasa Carnival, Pharaonic Race, Abu Simbel Festival, South Sinai Camel Festival, Cairo Film Festival.
Only a savage race would invest their intellect building weapons and bomb to kill as many people as possible. Only an uncivilized race would build killing machines, instead of making drums and learning to sing and dance and to be happy.
As a matter of fact, they don't even need visit Africa to see our works, they should rather visit their own museums in Europe, cause museums across Europe are littered with stolen African arts and artifacts that European invaders stole from "uncivilized" people in Africa and the rest of the world. Our art works and artifacts stands out in museums across the world and they have no rivals in the fine art in contains. Yet, some idiots would open their dirty mouths to say Africans didn't contribute anything to human civilization.
Its very funny when you see sculpturing is still being offered in universities today across the world- something we mastered in Africa thousands of years ago.
NOTE: One big lie he told before 13:00 minutes is that Europeans did not kill indigenous people wherever they went. That's a lie!. Everywhere Europeans settled, they called the indigenous people ABnormal original, from where the word aboriginal derives. So, they began killing the "abnormal original" people. That had to be done as a priority in order to reduce their population then subdue them. When Britain got to Australia, the population of the indigenous people (aboriginals) was 50,000 or more. Within 10 years of British arrival the population of the aboriginals had reduced to just about 27 people. The same thing was done in Africa. When the Germans arrived Namibia their population reduced about half within 5 years. Please research the herero and Nama genocide in Namibia. When Europeans got to the America's they used smallpox as instrument of war, deliberately infecting the indigenous people with a disease they knew they (the indigenous people) had no cure.
(the oldest metropolis in the world)
Remnant of Waset temple Africa- dated 3200 BC
(the oldest mega city in the world)
The only remnant of this ancient temple are antique pillars, as you can see above, because the city is so old. This African city is at least 6,000 years old!. By the time this city was built the entire Europe (except Greece) was an ice sheet with few primitive people hiding in caves.
The Greeks were the first civilized Europeans, they were the first white people to break out of the ice, they were the first to come study in Africa at the Waset temple. Foreign students in Africa included, Pythagoras, Aristotle, Socrates. Basically, the first set of educated Europeans got their education in Africa.
There're other surviving ancient African universities and learning centers, though they're not as old as the Waset temple. Some of the schools are still standing there, and they are:- Al-Azhar university in Egypt (North East Africa), Sankore university in Timbuktu Mali (West Africa), Fez university in Morocco (North West Africa). These three universities predates almost any university in Europe.
Egyptian pharaoh's coffin made of real gold- dated 1323 BC
Wall paintings and Gold coffin designed in Africa 3, 340 years ago!
The mask is 54 cm (21 in) tall, 39.3 cm (15.5 in) wide and 49 cm (19 in) deep. It is fashioned from two layers of high-karat gold, varying from 1.5–3 mm (0.059–0.118 in) in thickness, and weighing 10.23 Kilograms (22.6 lb). X-ray crystallography has revealed that the mask contains two alloys of gold: a lighter 18.4 karat shade for the face and neck, and 22.5 karat gold for the rest of the mask.
The beard was designed with 2.5 Kilograms (5.5 lb) of pure gold. Total gold used in burring this African king is estimated at least 15 Kilograms. In today's money, this African kings was buried with about 2 million US dollars worth of gold!. And note, it wasn't buried to be exhumed later, rather, it was European scavengers running around African dustbins that picked it up in their early days in Africa.
We did not learn how to refine gold from Europeans, rather, they learned it from us. The prove is in their museums across Europe. They can't deny it. Its written on gold!.
In nowhere were Europeans better than us when they arrived Africa.
When Dutch explorer, Olfert Dapper, and others first arrived Bini kingdom in Nigeria in the 1600's, they were so shocked about the rate of development they saw over here, so much that their expedition leader had to report back to Europe saying ''The town seem to be very great. When you enter into it you go into a great broad street, well paved, which seems to be seven or eight times broader than the Warmoes street in Amsterdam.
The king’s palace is a collection of buildings which occupy as much space as the town of Harlem, and which is enclosed with walls. There are numerous apartments for the Prince’s ministers and fine galleries, most of which are as big as those on the exchange at Amsterdam. They are supported by wooden pillars encased with copper, where their victories are depicted, and which are carefully kept very clean.
The town is composed of thirty main streets, very straight and 120 feet wide, apart from an infinity of small intersecting streets. The houses are close to one another, arranged in good order. These people are in no way inferior to the Dutch. They wash and scrub their houses so well that they are polished and shinning like glass''.
And this scenario wasn't peculiar to Benin Kingdom. The Ashanti king in ancient Ghana kingdom was so rich that his official seat was made of REAL gold. Africa was extremely very prosperous before Europe made contact with us.
Mansa Musa is estimated to have been 40 times wealthier than Bill Gates, and he still hold the world record as the wealthiest man ever lived.
Suddenly, Europeans broke from the ice and they began spreading across the world like a plague. Soon, they discovered other cultures were living large in various part of the world in good climate. They realized they lived in a hostile part of the world, while other parts of the world enjoyed sweet sunshine and lush forests, vegetation, and unending food supply. Africa and other parts of the world, therefore, became a destination for European merchants starting from the 1400's.
The first contact between Africa and Europe was gold and cash crop trade. It wasn't slavery or how to colonize us. Slavery and colonialism came much later when Europeans saw for themselves how blessed, innocent, and therefore, how vulnerable the African people were. We were so humane and innocent that the British colonial headmaster in Africa, Lord Lugard, wrote in his diary about Kikuyu people in Kenya, and he said "I had no hesitation in trusting myself almost alone among them, even when at considerable distances from the camp. I found them (Kenyans) honest and straight forward."............Lord Lugard.
As you can see, they saw we were very kind, welcoming, humane, and they were later to abuse our hospitality taking over our gold mines, sending our kings to exile, enslaving many. In fact, the motive for slavery and colonialism was not racism, it was ENVY. When you're on top there's envy...........Nas.
Everything changed once Europe made contact with us around 1300 AD. They unleashed their war ways and savagery on us. We became conquered and were no longer in charge of our destiny. Instead of developing our lands, African natural and human resources were being used to develop Europe. Therefore, we lost steam and were thrown into total darkness as a people for over 450 years!. But, within this 450 years of our slavery, Europe entered the age of technology and industrial revolution, all made possible by exploitation of Africa. Trains were built, cars built, advance in physics, chemistry, biology, e.t.c, all happened within this period. But, sadly Africa was never a part of this technological revolution. Just imagine where a people could not make a single development for 450 years!. Therefore, the rest of the world took over from us and gave us a big mile to cover. Within the 450 years of our slavery and colonialism, the world left us behind. We that used to be ahead became the ones running from behind. Ever since independence everything we do amounts to catching up with the rest of the world, because each day we have 450 years mile gap to cover!. This's why today it appears we're forever behind.
And what marvels me is they always justify their crime no matter how illogical. In 1901, British colonial officer in Kenya, Harry Johnston, after stealing lands from Kenyans, wrote in a report and he said "here we have a territory now that the railway is built, admirably suited for a white man's country, and I can see this with no further injustice to any native race, for the country in question is utterly non inhabitable for miles and miles, or utmost its inhabitants are wandering hunters. This will be one source of profit to the United Kingdom"..........Harry Johnston (British colonial officer in Kenya).
Once Europeans learned about the gun powder, they improvised it as a weapon of war, using it to manufacture bomb, and later that in turn inspired them to manufacture the first form of bullets. Yet, this technology had been in China and Africa for thousands of years and we never killed anyone with it!.
Please, see below video. It shows how Europeans forcefully subdued harmless, innocent native people everywhere they went. This documentary is generally about gold, so only from 30:00 minutes to 44:35 minutes is relevant here. Of course, you can watch the full video.
Using warfare and vandalism, Europeans stole from native people all over the world. That's why they got rich, and that's why we got poor.
In order for Africa to develop, we must find our way to science, because no nation can industrialize without science. We have art, but we don't have science. That's the real reason for poverty in Africa and other third world countries. Art don't rule the world. Science rules the world. This is a message I' am trying to see how I could get Africans to understand, but there's nobody to help me. The only way to get back on top is science. Nothing more, nothing less. See African school of grassroots science, which is a vision I've set out.
As they say "good guys finish last".
