Is it true that Africa was a shithole before colonization because a lot of blacks on here seem to think it was some sort of paradise before whites came along.

At one point it was just like every other land because everywhere were uneducated tribes struggling to do anything. They all evolved though to what we have today while Africa stayed the same. The most prosperous places in Africa today are thanks to “colonization” from Europeans in the south and west and Arabs in the north and now china more recently. A lot of central Africa is prime fertile land and resource rich but leave it to them to fuck it all up. Africa was no paradise or advanced civilization that was sacked by the white man who stole their technology and shit. The greatest thing they can claim was Egypt but that in itself is mostly wrong, as Nubians took Egypt during its end cycle when it was destabilized, though they went on to get it taken again anyway before Egypt finally fell. A lot of the silly claims about Africa and black people in general is mostly Afrocentric conspiracies and shit tier research and and African history revisionist bullshit from the 70’s and 80’s era black pride/panther propaganda. Or they someone use the few (basically almost none) examples of the contrary as absolute and definitive proof that we are all wrong and Africa was this great empire or something. No one on this planet agrees and nothing credible supports it. Hate me or dont, but of all races and ethnicity and skin color and whatever, Africa and blacks have contributed the least to mankind. So much so if this were to be plotted on a chart of some sort, the gap between them and Asians and Arabs and Hispanics and Europeans would be massive.

Oh wait..

Instead of actually aiming to rise up and improve themselves and so on the bulk of them would much rather bitch and complain and bring people (white people specifically) down and put all their lifes failures on them and events of the past. And act racist when fighting racism.

And saying that as a white guy makes me racist. Or a race traitor uncle tom that needs to hurry back to the “pickin fields before massuh comes home” if I were black and saying this.

This is the most racist disgusting unfounded rhetoric I have seen in a while. You have to be one of the most disgusting people I have unfortunately come across on this website. “Africa was just a bunch of uneducated tribes”. Clearly you have no idea what the meaning of the word tribe is in this context, and you also know absolutely NOTHING about African people’s and societies pre-colonisation. Stop talking out of your asscrack you brainless little shit. You are a racist, uneducated little wanker.

>Posts evidence and statistics
>Is a “racist, uneducated little wanker”

And this is why you are retarded. No I am not being “ABLEIST”. Retarded is the politically correct term for people like you.

Oh what evidence may I ask? Because there is absolutely no evidence here. You think a couple pie charts done by a university in Japan are enough to discredit the well documented histories of hundreds of civilisations? And honestly you are just beyond pathetic, I constantly see you in our notes, get a fucking life.

Wayment…..did y’all read those graphs?
1. The categories listed are Europe, Rest of the west, and Everywhere Else. I’m in a research class in graduate school and no credible research team would label their categories as ‘Everywhere else’ and ‘Rest of the West’ too informal. Btw what does ‘rest of the west’ mean? Where’s the beginning of it so that you can tell me abt the rest of it?
2. Scientific inventories occurred in Europe and North America. Africa isn’t in either of those places so no you will not find it on this graph. And yet sub-Saharan Africa is listed. But once again considering it is not in either Europe or North America of course you will see 0%
3. That study….I googled it. Www.cipa.org/uk has an article titled ‘Editorial archeology: unearthing the origins of modern myth’. Not very promising from the start. They talk abt all the statistical errors. Matter of fact it mentioned that the study referenced was done in the early 80s and was debunked by a British man in 1986.
4. Chart 4 Is abt European Accomplishment….I already told you….Africa is not in Europe so no you won’t see it listed

BOOM. BOOM. BOOM.

and yet you fail to prove him wrong, funny that ;)

What do you mean “I fail to prove him wrong” he has absolutely no facts and statistics that are credible for me to disprove. He made sweeping statements about “Africa” and “tribes” and then “backed it up” with some shitty pie charts. Do you even know anything about history? You’re just a racist anti-black swine. I suggest you fuck all the way off you empty headed cretin.

- Eniola

You’re just a racist anti-black swine” lmao, the irony. 

anyway, you still haven’t proven him wrong. why don’t you do that instead of whining and spouting buzzwords? 

And would you like to explain why she is obligated to “prove him wrong” when he is the one using incorrect data from “evidence” made of faulty information in order to make statements about a continent that are patently false and have been proven wrong for a very long time now?

 Why is the onus on her and not him to prove he’s being factual instead of being intellectually dishonest?  He’s the one who decided to write up a lecture on how inferior black people are and their supposed lack of accomplishments.   Therefore, the onus should be on him to prove all of that instead of relying on anti-blackness to get people to blindly believe him.

He’s also the one calling them an ableist slur.  The guy obviously has NO knowledge about the continent, black people…or heck, any racial history beyond what he probably read on Stormfront somewhere; considering that a basic glance would tell you he is wrong.  He is just another “race realist”, those people are borderline crack pots with their “theories” on race and are not to be given any legitimacy, especially about the racial history of people of color. Notice, for example:

  • How informal the graphs are, look at the categories, the incorrect classifications, the lack of legitimate sources.
  • Recognizing Egypt the country but treating the rest of Africa like a single country, any expert on the region would know that Africa has at least 57 countries with their own languages, cultural achievements.  He would also have acknowledged black migration, the Moors, etc.
  • The unprofessional “comparisons” of the Ancient Egyptian’s features, none of the people in the picture have features that black people cannot have and I could easily pull up more pictures of Ancient Egyptian art and compare it to black people and get matches as well.
  • The mention of “Native white Africans”, a tactic used by white supremacists in order to introduce the idea that the Egyptians were Europeans; that’s seriously Stormfront 101.
  • The claim that the area has no black people, therefore erasing a lot of people who (if they were actually being factual) they would have acknowledged.  
  • Their lack of knowledge about actual Egyptian history; they’re making claims but provide no actual evidence and are silent about the colonization that led to the change in demographic.  It is the factual equivalent of claiming that the modern Mayans are just Spanish because of the conquistadors.  We all know that’s incorrect.   
  • They’ve ignored people who have presented lived in experience or counter evidence to their claims.
  • The way he claims that black people were only in power in Egypt for a very small period, another tactic used by anti-black colonizers and white supremacists who want to divorce Egypt from the rest of Africa because that is the best known empire in Africa and they are invested in the idea that black people were worthless before they were colonized or enslaved, in order to justify how they view and threat them now.  It is the equivalent of saying that that Native Americans were only “in power” for a short period of time and the true Native Americans were white all along.  That is incorrect, so anyone who know’s that shouldn’t believe the same claims about North Africa.
  • The way he treats Egypt as if it was insulated from blackness, even middle schoolers know better than that.  
  • The fixation on Egypt and the use of the word “Afro-centric” in this context are also tactics used by white supremacists because archaeologists (many in name only) grew obsessed with the region and there was a push back against any ideas that attributed their achievement to black people (which is why you won’t hear about any African empire outside of Egypt). 
  • Hello, the people who subscribe to his views are the same people who thought they were Caucasian because they assumed they were the “prettiest”.  Any “facts” gathered from their “research” should always be taken with a grain of salt, it has never been about true facts as much as it has been about protecting white supremacy and destroying all evidence that doesn’t cater to that.

The best thing about having to observe these people is that you learn their tactics and how they use them; also how they say these things and then try to look for people to get angry with them so that they can “prove” their confirmation bias to be correct and be the “logical” one.  So he not only gets to attack black people but he get the added bonus of being treated like the “proper” one because he’s being calm (and of course he would be, he’s not the one having his history be trampled all over in the name of white supremacy is he?)…while spreading racist information that is factually unsound.  

Odds are he’ll claim he’s not “racist” just “realistic”. He’s not interested in facts, you won’t change his opinion. Notice how he made the post, then threw an ableist slur at a person who gave him the response him deserved, and then baited people like the guy I’m reblogging from to take his side, because of the “tone argument”, since racism puts PoC under extra scrutiny to take this stuff calmly and “educate”.  Note how someone’s already saying Eniola is in the wrong for reacting to him but not saying anything about his use of an ableist slur and blatant racism.  

So why is Eniola “whining” and in the wrong when he’s the one at fault and the one continuing to embarrass himself using data created (because it sure as heck isn’t factual) by people who either are just plain racist or benefit from the colonization of the areas in question?

(also, part of me thinks he sent that anon to himself in order to write that long spiel…they do that a lot.  Their ego depends on it.)

BOOM.

Isn't Lupita a face of Lancome who sells skin bleaching products? And she is all proud of her dark skin and now she is pro skin bleaching? She is so out there trying to be a role model for black girls and she is a sell out so soon.

She is indeed endorsing that product.

Lupita is not proud of her skin, she just realizes that as long as she pretends to be a fighter for the “black struggle” she’ll sell like ice cream in July.

I can’t believe the black community is that naive to believe her act.

I can’t believe that you as a non-black person think you have space to speak on it.  

Fine. Then I can’t believe a black person has room to act in a movie produced by a white person or accept an award given by a jury of white people on behalf of an organization founded by white people in a white country with a vastly white audience.

If you want whites to stay out of black people’s business there’s an entire continent where you can go and do that.

After you, considering my ancestors have been in the United States longer than the majority of white people’s ancestors. Plus, if you knew anything about the world, you’d know white people are everywhere.  There’s no “entire continent” free of white people and their bullshit influence. 

When people don’t know what apartheid is. Lol
White folk can’t stay out of our business no matter where we go, the entitlement is too strong.

This person equates her “right” to speak for a black woman she doesn’t remotely know (like, who the hell is she to say Lupita is not proud of her skin, when Lupita has expressed exactly the opposite or to talk about black struggle) to equal rights and basic human decency?

What universe does this girl live in?

"If you want whites to stay out of black people’s business there’s an entire continent where you can go and do that."

Ah, the KKK universe! Beware! It’s leaking!

'She is very beautiful for a black woman but I doubt she is the most beautiful black woman out there.'

Then goes onto say she’s ugly for white women standards LOL whew!
Whiteness is one HELL of a drug, isn’t it?!

Stay mad, I mean I can’t see you winning any ‘most beautiful awards’ anytime soon, so I understand your anger however misguided it may be. Lol

SHHHH GUYS! This Arschloch is a nazi

Is anyone surprised?

:) Even more reason to drag her.

I think the older I get the more I laugh, I think I’ve laughed a lot. I wish I had remembered to laugh like that when I was a teenager, and just forgive yourself and experience life, rather than being so concerned about yourself.
