I think it's time for those who want to know about African's influence on the world to have a thread that speaks to her contributions.

As we know, so many things we take for granted today has it's roots in Africa e.g. religions, math, philosophy, science, smelting of various metals / iron, sea travel, medicine, exploration, civilization, agriculture, etc.

So Talk about what ever you want. Bring whatever historical information you want about Africa's influence on the world from the beginning of time when the first PPL. left Africa to populate the earth, to the present day.

Warning: If this subject does not interest you, don't troll here. Don't post here.

Look at this conclave of self-hating minstrels smmfh

They mention "Africa" in the title of this thread but the first thing out of these boons mouth is Indian and Cambodian civilizations smmfh

These buck dancing, shoe shining, fried chicken eating, watermelon slicing, picinannys are what we call self-hating Afrocentric savages smmfh

There must be a study done on this mass mental illness that causes our people to become such buffoons

The Indus Valley: Mohenjo-daro, Harappa

"The "First" Out of Africa (OOA) migration, circa 60,000 B.C, saw Blacks with straight hair, taking a route along the coast of Asia, and then "Island hopping" across the Indian Ocean to Australia - the Australian Aborigine. And then making their way to South America - the remains called "Luzia" in Brazil."

Will definitely post that stuff tomorrow. We have to make sure that on your thread there is no interaction with TROLLS.

We just interact with each other and freeze them out.

You can see from the judging already that they are threatened by our unity.

Here is further evidence of the ethnicity of the Moors.

"Snowden (1970) and Desanges (1981) reference various writers’ physical descriptions of the ancient Maghreb’s inhabitants. In various writers’ physical descriptions of the ancient Maghreb’s inhabitants. In addition to the presence of fair-skinned blonds, various “Ethiopian” or “part-Ethiopian” groups are described, near the coast and on the southern slopes of the Atlas mountains.“Ethiopians,” meaning dark-skinned peoples usually having “ulotrichous”(wooly) hair, are noted in various Greek accounts and European coinage (Snowden, 1970). Hiernaux (1975) interprets the finding of “subsaharan” population affinities in living Maghrebans as being solely the result of the medieval transsaharan slave trade; it is clear that this is not the case. Furthermore, the blacks of the ancient Maghreb were apparently not foreign or a caste." (S.O.Y Keita, "Studies of Ancient Crania From Northern Africa," American Journal of Physical Anthropology, 83:35-48 (1990).

 Joseph Vogel stressed: "Populations and cultures now found south of the desert roamed far to the north." (Encyclopedia of Precolonial Africa by Joseph O. Vogel, AltaMira Press, Walnut Creek, California, 1997, pp. 465-472).

"Except for the Zandj (black slaves) from lower Iraq, no large body of blacks historically linked to the trans-Saharan slave trade existed anywhere in the Arab world ... The high costs of slaves, because of the risks inherent in the desert crossing, which would have not permitted such a massive exodus ... Until the Crusades the Muslim world drew its slaves from two main sources: Eastern and Central Europe (Slavs) and Turkestan. The Sudan only came third." - Africa from the Seventh to Eleventh Century, UNESCO, 1988.

BRITISH NATIONAL ARCHIVES EVIDENCE OF THE PRESENCE OF MOORS IN B.I.

MOORS IN SCOTLAND'.

'Africans have been present in Europe from classical times. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries Roman soldiers of African origin served in Britain, and some stayed after their military service ended. According to the historians Fryer, Edwards and Walvin, in the 9th century Viking fleets raided North Africa and Spain, captured Black people, and took them to Britain and Ireland. From the end of the 15th century we begin to see more evidence for the presence of Black Moors in the accounts of the reign of King James IV of Scotland, and later in Elizabethan England."
