Why the hell would have a AA intellectual giant as W.E.B. du Bois settled in Ghana in the 1950's then ?
Dr James Aggrey was certainly not a midget too with more grades i can ever dream to get at a young age.
Nigerians are famous for their mathematicians and as a French, i cannot forget Léopold Sedar Senghor who launched the concept of "négritude" and was so skilled in my language he was elected a member of arch-selective Académie Française. We could also easily pick up examples from Ivory Coast, Benin, the 2 Congos, Rwanda and Burundi or Uganda.
Besides most of the Africans i meet here are graduates or post-graduates ; those who are not like the janitor that is from time to time cleaning the stairs in my building are also skilled persons in any case.
These prejudices about Africans are a sad legacy of the past : in the end of the XXIst century, people will read them and laugh ... this archaic perception will pass for truly "primitive" wati.

That's maniacal barbarism. How many Africans engage in that practice?
Relatively few to almost none compared with the billion people that live in Africa.
And in any case, neither these instances of savagery nor illiteracy are anywhere near the biggest problems that continent faces.
<quoted text>
This question has no relevance. What is AA's going to Africa going to prove? That people coming from a higher standard of living can live better than people with a lower standard of living, in a third world country no less?
That's just some more retarded nonsense.
Compare Africans living in America, one of the most developed and packed with opportunities for the poorest man to come up in the world, to AA's, and we already see how they both stack up.
<quoted text>
What do you mean "selective immigrant"?
The comparison is valid because Africans also do better than white Americans, who also do better than AA's, which means that Africans are the betters of the betters of AA's
<quoted text>
The Caribbean, with the possible exception of Haiti, is not underdeveloped, so how would it be a perfect example? I just told you they had a higher HDI than most African countries, which means that even if some of these people are more, they are usually not starving or suffering from malnutrition or anything, and even if they are, there are facilities to tend to them in many cases, whereas in Africa, in a lot of places, there are no facilities whatsoever.
Again, this has nothing to do with how Africans value education.
Looms is filled with festering resentment towards Africans, because of Slavery.

This would have been greatly beneficial to society at large, obviously.

Me da Wasee Sir.

i've been taught by enlightened and wise Obibini from Africa and America just as well. i'm just reflecting their light.

As for Black African slavery it has to be studied carefully : it's clear that the Muslim traders played a major role and also that sub Sharan traditional slavery was very different from the Transatlantic slave trade and the type of slavery imposed by us whites.

The same word cannot be used without precision about the who, when and specific conditions. There is no equivalent in Black Africa of the horrors of Transatlantic slavery and field slaves in the Americas.

We had to fight for our place in the mainstream nothing was given to us. Before the 1970's there were few blacks on American television and most of the roles given to blacks at that time were negative and sterotypical. It wasn't until the 80's that images of successful blacks began to appear, "The Cosby Show" was the first.

<quoted text>Stupid fool, if it wasn't for Africans, your silly ass wouldn't be in America because there would be no America.

No Africans = No America, No Australia, No Canada, No Brazil, No Portuguese Empire, No Spanish Empire, No British Empire.

Capisce?

Let's look at Africa.

The current underdeveloped scene in Africa is a result of European sparked slave trading, European colonialism and European involved neo colonialism along with their African elite cohorts.

Not much opportunity for the average African citizen in comparison with what was going on in America for White Americans.

Now let us juxtapose this with the Medieval Period.

This period saw West Africa as being one of the most economically advanced and powerful regions in the world at that time. A time where wealth was plentiful and even the poorest rural peasant had no worries of what we now know as malnutrition in most cases.

During this time, we see that West Africa was wealthier and more powerful than Western Europe.

It was really only during the early modern period, with the discovery of America, that the tides turned and power started to shift.

But just know that modern Africa does little justice to Medieval Africa, if you care to read the history that is, which I know you don't because you don''t read anything.
There would be an America without Africans. Trust me!! America would be better without them!!

lol, I feel their is blame on both AA men and AA women for that, some AA men have relinquished their duties as men and left it with their women but AA women at times add fuel to the fire
Black men were systematically tooken out of the family. Many lost their jobs after big factories shut down, like in detroit, and in california. When men cant provide for their family, it causes depression and other things. Some of these men were forced to sell drugs, ect, because they could not get another job in the white mans world. Its more complicated than than that, and even what I typed.

Excellent point, great insight. Is good a thing we have people like on this forum or else we will all be losing brain cells chatting with idiots on here.

You are officially obinini. You know more about African history than many blacks here, who would rather continue to be ignorant instead do little research.

We were talking about humanity as a whole. You do know there is a whole larger world outside the Americas. What did slavery in the Americas do for the East, Muslim World, Russia etc?

If slave labor was the equivalent of using domesticated animals, then people would have used domesticated animals instead of human slaves for their labor needs.
Like I said, what a dope.
I said it is the equivalent not the same. Learn the difference.

Yes and it is that owner who creates the work while the slave provides the labour.

No I'm not, fool. The European dominated world that you seem to be so infatuated by would not exist as you know it without West Africans. Most likely nowhere near close to what it is know.
The modern countries would simply not exist in their current capacity. West Africans contributed big time. Don't make me start citing quotes that you won't be able to refute on your silly ass, as is the typical pattern.
I clearly said they contributed:
''Their greatest contribution to humanity has been being slaves who contributed to the development of the modern world through slave labour in the Americas.''

But it's simply nothing compared to other groups contribution.

Who said anything about Mansa Musa? West Africans played a crucial role in the Trans Saharan Trade throughout the Medieval period. It was their gold that was exported and spread throughout the Islamic world that contributed to the economies of millions of people in West Africa, North Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
West Africans got rich off this precisely because they had what everybody needed and sought for.
This is really trivial. No non west African economies relied on gold imports from them so why you bring this up is beyond me.

He is right, no other group of people brag about being entertainers for White people. It's good AfroAmericans are good at singing and dancing, but no point bragging about it.
