Divide and conquer ploys don't have anything to do with AA's/afrocentrist self hatred and constant fleeing from their own ancestry in favor of a make-believe ancient past.<quoted text>
Maybe your "title" tells us who & WHAT YOU really are.
No one will tell Africans which "part" of Africa.... they can & can't embrace. The divide & conquer ploys are OVER. Africans through the diaspora can and should embrace any and ALL things African.
Egyptians, and north Africans in general, hardly even "embrace" other Black Africans, let alone AA's. Any Black person wishing to 'embrace' non-Black people who do not even see themselves as having anything to do with you is nothing more than self hatred/low self esteem.
AA's are from West/Central Africa. Show me a study that says anything different. The only other place some AA's come from, nominally, is southern Africa.Fact is DNA genealogy tests on where AA's are suppose to be from in Africa e.g. "west Africa" is bogus and proven to be only 5% accurate of that much. I have the study. Pinpointing with even 50% accuracy where a group PPL. are from..... is painstakingly impossible.
Nowhere near Egypt.
Says who? Nobody.2) Africans were taken throughout Africa and BROUGHT to the west coast of Africa.
They were taken primarily from West/Central Africa, and is evidenced by the fact that they cluster genetically with such peoples.
They weren't taken from the Horn.
They weren't taken from Sudan.
They weren't taken from Algeria or Libya.
And they weren't taken from Egypt.
I'm sorry, but this right here is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard from you. And you're using extreme language like "all" when no one ever said all. We're speaking in general terms here.Bottom line....NO ONE can say for sure that ALL AA's are from "WEST Africa". The constant "AA's are from WEST Africa" is quite ERRONEOUS and is used to further DIVIDE Africans (throughout the diaspora).
The Atlantic slave trade promoted by West European empires (15th19th centuries) forcibly moved at least 11
million people from Africa, including about one-third from west-central Africa, to European and American destinations. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genome has retained an imprint of this process, but previous analyses lacked west-central African data. Here, we make use of an African database of 4,860 mtDNAs, which include 948 mtDNA sequences from west-central Africa and a further 154 from the southwest, and compare these for the first time with a publicly available database of 1,148 African Americans from the United States that contains 1,053 mtDNAs of sub-Saharan ancestry. We show that >55% of the U.S. lineages have a West African ancestry, with <41% coming from west-central or southwestern Africa. These results are remarkably similar to the most up-todate analyses of the historical record.
AA's are West Africa predominantly. Those that aren't are either Central or Southern African. That is it.
No one is dividing anything. AA's come from West/Central Africa with some genetic components coming form other SOUTHERLY bantu people.
In other words, AA's are N][ger Congolese with some Chadic. Nothing to do with Egypt.
No one ever said all, but that is the majority.YES, WEST Africa was a departure point, but it doesn't mean ALL AA's came from there.
"This latter work suggested a majority contribution of West Africa to the mtDNA pool of North and Central Americans of recent African descent, with a slightly smaller component from west-central Africa...No significant component was detected from other regions..."
"No significant component was detected from other regions"
Meaning nothing come from Egypt, as can clearly be seen here.
