@Sunnubian: I totally agree with you. This propaganda regarding the guilt of Africa allowing slavers to come in and turn over....is NOT an easy explanation to convey in one sitting. It happened because of many layers of sociatal circumstances that affected corely the dynamic of the people's role in their society. Starting with the beatdown of the equal relationship between men and women to the stripping of their POWER in their own lives. It just didn't happen in one step...it occurred in several steps over centuries and dynasties. And then one has to look at the type of overturn it was and who did and where it derives. Huge things are accountable for this collaspe. And you've covered a portion of this very nicely. I have come to the conclusion that many blacks especially in America need to take some time and STUDY all of Africa from the first dynasty on to understand what REALLY happen. And to also have world history on the side at a glance so that one can look and see certain occurrences that were happening simulataneously during the rape of the African continent. It's a very long read but it is extremely important if one is to UNDERSTAND what REALLY happened as oppose to what massa is saying happened. Cuz we all know massa's has the twisted ability to LIE LIE LIE about Africa, her people and the slave trade. So it's better to find out on one's own to get the FULL throttle and the TRUTH of what really happened and WHY! [And I will say this there is a very sustantial difference between the European/Asian Neanderthal and African Homo sapian sapian....and there is where some of the mystery of the destruction of our high advanced African past culture lies] But!
