Of course is not real m8 but I find it quite accurate when he describe west african muslims and their culture in remote villages [I was in Gambia and Senegal and saw it] . Anyway I've just read one volume 'till now, got two ahead. :)

It was good historical fiction... the details invented, but accurately representing what was occurring in that place and time.

This was a basic dose of USA black history to the country when it appeared on TV. All of the country's favorite stars were there, most of the whites playing some nefarious slaving a$$holes. Chuck Connor... as George Moore, drunk, slobbering,“Goege Moore is no CRACKA!”

I actually think that program had the effect of reducing racism among white Yanks. I can't prove that.

Sorry Mr. Barros. But this s/t of a forum and most of its members find so much pleasure in trollin' and "race" and s/tn' on each and anybody's throat that sometimes, after a good laugh, I found all this bs much more than disgusting.

I've always heard that "Roots" served it's purpose: To stir up a bunch of racial sh*t in the 70's.

It also gave the name Toby or Kunta to a generation of black kids in the UK, it was the 1st time blacks had been on TV really.

Anyway, the book shows so much the differences between real born and breed africans and afro-americans. Just take a look at what some AAs pretend to be : vikings, hebrews, native americans, most noble family in Europe (many have some "noble" blood, but it there because of the ancestoryal rapes), european royalty etc. anything fashionable. But none of them claim anything real african, nothing real west african, the place where they came from. So, unfortunately for them, those AAs who pretend those things, are nothing better, in front of real africans and europeans as well, than those slaves with white surname trying to imitate whites behaviour in front of Kunta Kinte.
