I've got a good question. Has the origin of the 'Bantu' people been resolved? I'm reading some information that the 'Bantu' migrated from Egypt, but still, the origin remains a true mystery. I've read it many times before that West Africa was not always inhabited by the so-called 'Bantu' people.

Hmm. I always thought the Bantus originated in West Africa. Where have you read otherwise?

Most of that information is theoretical. How could a people 'evolve' so quick out of the 'hominid' and appear to have 'materialized' in West Africa? I hope to get some real information on their origins.

Religion, workers? What does that, if true, have to do with my question? How is it that they've 'evolved' so fast into this distinct group? There seems to be no trace of their 'evolution'.

Oh sure they migrated from Egypt, suddenly became Black and forgot all they knew.

How much crack did you smoke to come up with that?

No way did they originate in South Africa. Central Africa, maybe, but I always read that their history is one of migrating southwards.

I am moving this discussion to a new thread because the term 'bantu' springs from apartheid and racism.
