<quoted text>Is it not a fact that a lighter skined coloured man calls himself black and looks down on a man with darker skin can anyone explain this ??
It's a social status to have lighter skin in this racist society that we live in, on the other hand the lighter skinned "coloured" man can't escape the fact that his lineage is Black.

This would include other ethnic groups as well who look down upon darker skinned people only because the ruling classes do, and so they feel affiliated with the oppressor.

If we lived in Egypt maybe 2000 b.c it would be the opposite, to be White would be affiliated with the weaker class, so people flip flop.

Some of you will believe anything you're told, as long as you think it's radical or anti-white.

Africans and Europeans were NOT in America before Columbus (except the Vikings briefly). One Chinese ship did reach Chile in the 14th century. That's IT!

There is no PROOF and no maps. Do you actually think that all of academia KNOWS about this and hides it? LOL... that shows how little you know about academia, fools!!!

Claiming that Native Americans did not build the civilizations and cultures observed here is RACIST and amounts to CULTURAL GENOCIDE against them. KEEP your Euro and Afro grubby paws off other peoples' cultures and history!!!

From what I read all real native indians are of afroasian lineage and shocking SO ARE THE REAL HEBREWS, so from this I would assume if your american black or even an american indian that doesn't look like a 1950 cowboy movie with white features and can trace no slave history like the majority of blacks in this country then you are native american because after all white history tells us that indians came from asia (which is true) and now this fits perfect and the one truth they intentionally left out was the afro-asian lineage asia and africa do connect and people with color do favor in those regions and also favor black americans and native americans as well as south americans, people in the islands, etc.!!!

For those who dispute that Africans were in what is now called the Americas, the problems many Europeans authors of the subject have is there credibility the evidence is overwhelming that maps of the Americas existed prior to Columbus and Magellan.

This 10th century map clearly shows the Americas, a full 500 years before Columbus which means that Western historians are not only lying to us, but are concealing centuries of scholarship and information in effort to maintain a White supremacy worldview, a mythological worldview.
The book advertised with the link 'Deeper Roots' by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick goes very deep into West African travels across the Atlantic in the 14th centuries, and he quotes Spanish officials who acknowledge that Blacks were in the Western hemisphere when Christopher Columbus made his first voyage.
It's not difficult to travel across the ocean because the currents take you straight into Brazil and the Carribean.
It's pure racism to think that Black Africans couldn't do it.
thanks malcolm for your input. the truth is out there one has to do their own research to find it.

There were no black people in America before Columbus. There is no proof to say otherwise. All this "Moorish" BS is a JOKE. The "Moors" are a CULT and know nothing of science.
The mounds of the Ohio Valley have been studied and it was determined that they were built by the ancestors of the SHAWNEE... the same Shawnee who are around today. Not black...
If you are black American and you can trace back to non-slaves, that is simply because there were many free blacks, including in the north in colonial times, so guess what, there were Africans here who were not slaves! That doesn't mean they were "Moors" or were here before Columbus! LOL!!!
Now, there WERE Moors on Columbus' ships...
Anyone claiming Africans built ANYTHING on this continent before Columbus is a culture-vulture racist stealing Native American heritage! So shut your damned mouth and keep your nightmares to yourself!
i guess whites are not culture vulture racist for claim all the shit they didn't build. its a FACT etched in stone that the olmecs were african people, you can't deny all the evidence.

hey, white racist think that they are the only ones that could build boats, and sail them across the seas, barros, is a white racist that think that the african could not seem to find his way out of africa (except by slaveships), so it took the great white race to do all the exploring, because in his racist mindstate, he can't see africans doing such a thing, but to bad barros, we africans did it ALL first, we were here first, and we built the first boats, so im sure we had enough time to practice sailing the sea lol.

go to hell you racist piece of shit
