People who are afraid of losing are in truth weak. They are afraid if they have one misstep they will quit. These are the type of people who cheat there way to "success" or do morally reprehensible things just to make it.
Wisdom comes through experience and experience comes from what you've experienced. Some of it may have been a painful lesson and some of it may have not been. Wisdom isn't about avoiding pitfalls. Wisdom is about knowing what to do when you are in one. We aren't perfect beings and wise people prepare for the let downs of life because of this. No one knows it all. The key is knowing what you do know and knowing what you don't know. Just like Donald Rumsfeld (I believe that's his name) said years ago..there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns.
It's not about perfection on the way to your destination because perfection isn't natural to humans.
PPL who cheat their way to success do so because they lack the 'abilities' too compete fairly. If you have the abilities to reach success, there is no need to cheat. Being able to learn from ur surroundings is also an 'ability' kinda like having a good intuition to assist you from making bad decisions which could lead to mental or physical harm. I guess some PPL lack these abilities but the abilities are beneficial for one survival. That's why some PPL fare better than others under similar circumstances. Just like some PPL are better athletes than others due to their innate abilities.

Human life ceases to exist when too much adaptation takes place. This is why the most successful human groups limit and manage adaptation.
The least successful human groups adapt the most and since adaptation is bad, they don't succeed.
Utter nonsense.

The cultures which have done the least adapting are the least developed today eg tribes in the Kalahari desert, Congo rainforest, Amazon rainforest, Papua New Guinea's rainforests etc. Their numbers are extremely low as it is even and they sure as hell are not successful.

I'm wondering whether Francophone Black people in your country observe anything like our Black History Month over here.
You're right that some leaders of African indepence movements studied in HBCU's in America. I believe that Kwame Nkruman studied in Lincoln University (in Pennsylvania).
Oh no Sir, it's totally unknown and i learnt about it through my contacts with AAs and groups and forums like Topix.

My attention was drawn on Dr James Aggrey, one of the "Big Six" (considered as founding fathers of Ghana) Nkrumah being the last one, others being older, even dead before independence. James Aggrey is a sort of Booker T. Washington and Alain L. Locke. He bet heavily on education and wanting to top the Bristish on their own "game".
He attended Livingstone College and later Columbia university : he played a key role to foster higher education when he came back in Ghana and died in 1927 in New York from a sudden illness during a trip.
He married an AA woman and lived in North Carolina for a while.

Nkrumah was directly influenced by Aggrey.

Reality is things change and those better suited for such changes are those who adapt.
Those best suited are those who control the controllables regarding adaptation. Those are the human species with the most success.

If central-west Africans adapted to the capitalist ways of Europe during the 15th century the ''Atlantic Slave Trade'' wouldn't of happened in the first place.
It wasn't just central west Africans enslaved. In fact, the entire continent of Africa was colonized so no group came out better than the other. Africans surrendered and came down too much. To the point where they allowed enslavement. They gave in to capitalism because they were too afraid to die and too afraid to fight back. That is why slavery is a great example of bad adaptation. No one wants to adapt to slavery. Well, except blacks.

All continents populations were enslaved. Your point?

Difference is central-west Africans were naive compared to North-East Africans.

If central-west Africans adapted to the rest of the old world none of this would of occurred. So you have no point.

No one was afraid they were just overwhelmed to something more productive.

One can only learn their abilities by exercising them. They have to take a risk of exposing their weaknesses and then losing. Those who cheat don't want to risk a loss so they cheat. They could have had the ability to win without cheating but they don't want to take the risk so therefore they cheat.

I'm certainly not advocating ignoring ones basic instinct regarding survival. What I'm speaking about is avoiding risk for fear of losing. In fact, the most successful people speak of their losses far more than the wins. That is for a reason.

Simply surviving through an event is not success. I do agree that some people survive certain circumstances better than others but it's not the survival which determines success. Simply surviving is not enough to determine success.

Adaptation is bad. Groups who manage and limit adaptation succeed the most. There is a reason whites where able to enslave blacks and the reverse didn't happen and has never happened. As far as what's going on in Africa now. It's largely irrelevant because they don't have control of the controllables. They are still largely defined by what the world wants out of them.

What abilities are you speaking about? Whatever choices we make in life for ourselves should always be for more freedoms and comforts. If they aren't, we are going backward! This is why most adaptation is bad and why successful groups work to limit and manage their adaptation. You are so wrong on this issue.
Africans are dying hand over fist from Malaria.
Well the situation can motivate us to become more independent or more innovative. Both would lead to some form of comfort & freedom, right?? The ability to analyze ur situation in order to make the best choice for ourselves.

Lmao, Weakaboo, you need to submit.. This is what I was explaining to you in the other thread.

Clearly Bigsmoke is right.. but you're inability to admit it would lead to major issues if the two of you were in a relationship in the same household.

That's why I said use the numbers as the way to determine who's correct..

Clearly the method isn't universal.. but If the two of you were discussing something more serious than "adaption"... your inability to submit could ruin your family.... and the fcked up thing is that YOU'RE WRONG.

He's explained it to you every way you could possibly explain it.. yet you're still arguing it.

You don't know any better though.. many women are like you.. that's why some times you need to just stfu and submit like a good woman. This is your answer for the other thread as well.

I am black and I am very certain none of my ancestors were slaves to white people the same for most black people on the planet.

Central-west African traders willingly sold captives to Europeans who would then be enslaved in the Americas. It had nothing to do with limiting adaptation or what ever other BS you might cook up here.

As far as emancipation. You still aren't getting it. It was an unnatural fight to begin with because blacks shouldn't have allowed enslavement of an entire race in which they belonged. They shouldn't have been in chains to begin with but because they were it means they failed. It was a monstrous fail and worse yet, blacks didn't free themselves, whites did. Facts are slavery wasn't needed, except to uphold social superiority norms, so they decided to get rid of it. The few blacks speaking about emancipation were backward and dumb. They should have done less speaking and more acting and maybe blacks wouldn't have had to wait for the goodness of whites to free them 400 yrs later.
African-Americans had great abolitionist leaders, killed and died for their freedom via the Civil War. Also your link supports my claim that most blacks in America don't live in big cities.

Fact is every group which was part of civilization prior to the 20th century were enslaved.

You're incredibly ignorant.

The Atlantic Slave Trade began in the late 1400s while the Scramble of Africa began in the late 1800s; that's 400 years!

400 years of naive central-west African traders willingly selling captives who would go to produce slaves and profits in the west which would drive an industrial revolution which would make these western powers powerful enough to briefly colonize most of the world.

If you believe the competition is fair, then you really shouldn't be afraid to compete. What loss are you risking if we can simply try again & win next time?? I'm not saying we shouldn't take risks but to have more freedom like you've stated yourself. If life is also about bringing more freedom into our lives than it make sense we are giving the ability to analyze our surroundings & are physically fit. Of course simply surviving isn't enough to determine success because ur lifestyle may still be backwards or you may still be suffering from diseases.

So your ancestors sold other blacks out. That's nothing to be proud of. That wasn't adaptation. And life goes with the majority so your ancestors being in the minority still means they are part of the majority. Life doesn't see exceptions in the manner you wish.

You've never had the type of control and manageability that those folks had so this is a very difficult concept for the likes of you. Those enslaved had the lease manageability regarding adaptation and those who enslaved had the most. And again, slaves came from all over and those who weren't outright put in chains were left behind to scratch butts.
