well during the mid fifteen century a portugee named vasco da gama come into contact with east africa and he was 1st european explorer to discover another sea root to india u remember turkey. but a barrier to the route by introducing tax hence eastern europe needed another route they couldn't keep up with turkey demand well this vasco da gama sailed across the atlantic to cape town but when landing in eastern coast of africa he was amazed by hospitality he received since the eastern coast of africa was a cosmopolitant where chinnese,arabs,african interacted during trade he was amazed by this secluded place where it had vibrant way of life but he was not happy since the religion that existed there was islam due to arabians that inter married there and the african religion but be fore he left he built a pillar in malindi in kenya so as people could remember him and act as a land mark for those visiting kenya the pillar is there even today in malindi just by the sea after he reached india at goa he send back positive message to portugal then other explorers followed and they gabe back positive message therefore by the begining of 16th century the portugesse come to east africa with their war ships in hundradeds of ships by the way by then they were the best ship builders when they landed east african coast they were welcomed but with time the locals become hostile since they bought new cultured therefore there was an uprising which was a joined ventured by locals and arabs since they had interacted & intermarried the uprising was to flush out portugees despite portugees having gun powder they were ambushed severaly untill they were greatly reduced nb the war was only in eastern coast of africa..due to the war portugees government funded a project to make a fort were they could reside and store armour and protect themselves the fort was named fort jesus aerial of the fort resembles a shape of a person well the portugees were christians the fort is also located in kenyan coast mombasa and its still there u can google well the fort was built over 100yrs the histrory continue the portugees were displaced by arabs arabs controlled the fort for 107 years there were numerous wars the artifacts and reports are stored due to interaction of. the arabs, local,portugees there was immergence of a language known as swahili today it national language of east african countries spoken by more than 200million africans today mostly from east.the history is of east africans well east africa history is deep with artifacts unlike west africa well west african trade was mainly consisted of slaves that's why by the end of slave trade close to 7million slaves were west africans were exported during the transatlantic triangle while in east africa less than 500,000 were exported as slaves this because east african didn't commercial lize slave trade instead there were numerous resistance by worriors that resisted e.g majimaji rebellion and many others you need to visit east african archives for detailed info well let me take you to 1900 east africa when colonisers were coming I cant summeris the whole history portugees contributed alot eg spread of. christianity to counter spread of islam well firsy of all not all countries were colonised ethiopia enpire in east africa was never colonised a population of about 30 million by then the east african history is. rich with numerous interraction most african american were from west africa most slaves from east africa went to arabia countries especially oman to fight battles not to work in farms some also were deported back to east africa to fight the portugees..colonisation did not h overnight in africa especially east africa even the british know east african has about 300tribes with different languages the british started by supporting weak tribes with modern armour eg guns & explosives to fight In inter tribal wars therefore with time more tribes rushed to sign treatis with white men so as to get armour

kanda Dogon wats up with the attitude I know some history are bitter but actually I know about west africa had one of strongest & largest kingdoms like the old kingdom of ghana capital kumbi sale. it had one of most fierce worriors in africa even the berbers from north africa feared the kingdom I know about samouri toure of senegal the one who championed the revolution that almost wipe out all the french soldiers with the tactics he used to fight then I know even east africa the majimaji rebellion the prophet that claimed he could protect the local worriors from bullets by water made by sorgum only to end up frustate by loosing able bodied men in the battle both the east african and west african history had pros and cons as I say african history is deep am sure if written it would be like another bible.

I dont care what your white masters told you, they are your masters not mine. NONE of you came from this country. Dont try to impose your stinking asses on us we've got nothing to do with you and slave trade and no one is going to change that.
I dont care about Mozambique, I am telling you that we're not connected to you and do not wish we were, you did not originate from this country. Why are you so obsessed with people who've got nothing to do with you, why cant you shut up and be happy in the slave land? Out of +200 million descendants of African slaves only the negroes imposes itself on SA and countries that have nothing to do with you, why? Why is it so important to you to NOT belong in West Africa. You are sick, you are imposing yourselves on people who are not interested in you.
You dont know what to do with your lives and now you want to make false claims. Go back to West Africa if you want to have relations with African countries. We dont want you, you are not our people.
Don't relate us (West Africans) to these people not all West African countries are involved in slavery! if these Mongrel half breed came into our countries we will lick their asses out for sure !

If you werenít such an idiot, then you would know that there are ancestry tests that can trace you to the country your family came from in Africa, so black Americans not knowing their identity is a thing of the past. Furthermore my great grandmother who is black, white, and Native America already told me about our family history so I donít need a test. I am a dark skin black America who comes from a mixed heritage and ancestry, which was not the result of rape and I am proud of it! I have light skin and dark skin aunts and uncles. The majority of black Americans are black but not pure black. All of my ancestors were not slaves. I donít need anybody telling me who I am or where I came from. Where Iím from a bunch of innocent people, mainly blacks were released from prison. They spent their whole life in prison for a crime that they did not commit. The SCI Crime Lab made a lot of mistakes with the blood analysis. Iím sure your aware that there is inequality within the justice system as far as minorities go. A white man in one state was arrested for robbing a bank. They thought it was a black man at first because he had on a mask that looks like a black manís face. Hmm makes you wonder doesnít if all those other criminals were really black? You need to stop running your mouth about something you donít know anything about. The black people I know, including me have never claimed to be descendants of south Africans and east African so I donít know where you get your information. I have had a white and black person ask me was I Ethiopian because of my features and thatís about it. I donít have any ancestors or relatives from Ethiopia, so what. You said we need to claim West Africa Duh! I think we know about West Africa already, further more I have a college degree. Nobody is trying to claim or go to south Africa. With all thatís going on over there, who wants to go there? Obviously it matters to you because you keep bringing up the same thing every post about South Africa. Nobody cares so get over it. I know who I am bitch. You are a non FACTOR (in other words you donít matter) Itís a shame you have to put other people down to elevate your self. You need professional help because racism is a sickness . I perfectly happy with who I am. Im not loosin any sleep whatsoever about my identity. There are more important things to worry about, like getting an education, helping the community.
Zew is very extreme.. And shoul'dnt be paid much attention. But don't talk sh*t about South Africa just to drive a point... It takes away from the nobility you are trying to portray.

For your information not all AA descend from West Africans. True I believe most may but no all do. I has my DNA analyzed bt The National Genographic project almost 1o years ago and again just a few months ago. My mitochondrial haologroup is L3f1b1 East African ,Ethiopian to tell the truth. My fathers Haplogroup is R1B. and yes, I am AA. I suugest that maybe people of coloer need to take a DNA test before they spout off about something they know nothing about.

finally someone is addressing this issue. I hate when "African Americans" claim that they were taken from Nubia/Kush and ancient Egypt African American were taken of the coast of west African and central Africa countries like Ghana, sierra Leone, Nigeria etc.. so its basically impossible for your people African American to have Nubian blood on ancestors like me( Sudanese, Ethiopian)
you guy claim Cleopatra to be black but the fact remains that her mothers race is unknown, you claim to be "kings/queens" taken from Kush or Egypt BS!! I hate when you make clothing with my ancestors home I hate when you hashtag #Nubian on your instagram posts when your not even aboriginal Sudanese we are a proud people but we are very easily disrespected.

Many slaves came from Zanzibar, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique and Madagascar, all in East Africa. I do not think many Somalis were involved although a few were victims of the slave trade. The Somalis who were involved were probably southern Bantu Somalis, not the average light brown skin Somalis. I think this is why Somalis are easier to get along with than any other group from black Africa. They have no guilt consciousness about the slave trade. North Africans are also easier to get along with than black Africans. North Africans were not involved.

your people African Americans claim everything that has nothing to do with you like ancient Israelites ancient Egypt and my ancestors home Nubia its really annoying especially since you guys want to deeply believe that your ancestors were present in ancient Nubia or Egypt when its not possible why don't you claim place like Timbuktu. its more probable that your ancestors actually lived there

There's to much evidence to prove that AAs are from west Africa. You are wrong, so take your bitterness elsewhere.

There were some East Africans who ended up here. But mainly we're descendants of West Africans
