World History Re-Examined

World history is ever evolving subject to various interpretations, new
information, written documents, oral transmissions and an assortment of
other variables. In the case of Afrikan world history, the complete or
accurate story has yet to be told. There are many reasons for this. The
prevailing and primary reason is the wholesale interpretation of world
history by people of European descent, their control of the textbook
publishing industry, with the transatlantic slave trade serving as the
philosophical undercurrent. In order to justify the trade, Afrikans had to
be redefined as non-human, dismissing and shifting their ancient and early
achievements, erroneously crediting Europeans. All of this was fueled by the
disdain of Afrikan people by several European scholars and writers,
motivated by the evolution of racism/white supremacy.
The greatest fear of those presently in control of global affairs is that
Afrikan world peoples will intellectually evolve and realize they once ruled
the world and have the capacity and resources to initiate worldwide
influence. Many would consider just that thought unbelievable, and
threatening. Knowing that Afrikan people were the chosen people to give the
world humanity is no longer conjecture, but scientific fact. Though kept
from most historical writings, it is slowly gaining ground that Afrikan
people were given the original human intelligence to craft various creations
allowing humanity to grow and progress.
It is this intelligence and creativity that allows the world to presently
enjoy such useful gifts as science, mathematics, engineering, technology,
family, parenting, spiritual thought, architecture, agriculture, philosophy,
education and much more. Many prominent scientists and scholars of European
descent know this, including several misguided people of color, who use
every ingenious technique to withhold or change historical facts that could
inspire and/or motivate Afrikan people to no longer accept historical
falsehoods. More significant, totally rejecting any notion of being inferior
One of the central tools of disguising facts in world history is to promote
the highest religious deities, whether east or west, as European-like. A
serious and honest investigative effort would reveal that no major deity
came out of Europe. There is absolutely no credible evidence anywhere to
prove any major deity even looked European, unless interpreted from a
European perspective, such as the works of Michelangelo of the 16th century.
Attempting to project the Creator and all major deities as European types,
transitions into people of European descent creating the major advancements
in the world, using world history and the history of science to authenticate
The most effective propaganda and vicious struggle and debate in academia is
to constantly press the false impression that the original peoples of the
Nile Valley, specifically Kemet (Egypt), were of European descent. This
began when Napoleon Bonaparte, self-proclaimed emperor of France, along with
his military and scientists, invaded Kemet (Egypt) in July 1798 and won the
'War of the Pyramids.' They were overwhelmed the land they conquered was not
only the world's oldest and most accomplished ancient civilization, but was
created and inhabited by black Afrikans. Part of the physical and artistic
evidence was reflected in huge statues, papyri and numerous paintings in
every temple. This was absolutely unacceptable, particularly since the Pope
in Rome, in the 16th century, the supreme European authority, deemed Afrikan
people non-human; an edict that ignited the transatlantic slave trade.
To propagate one of the supreme hoaxes of ancient history, Napoleon's
scientists, and others, created the science of Egyptology. The theoretical
premise of this newly created discipline was to prove that Kemet (Egypt) was
not created, established or inhabited by black Afrikans, except as slaves.
This stimulated a destructive campaign of physical objects. Efforts were
made in Kemet (Egypt), and even Phoenicia, to disfigure the noses and lips
on major statues so as not to reveal their Afrikan characteristics; such as
The Great Sphinx. During the Roman conquest of Kemet (Egypt), the last
dynasty called the Ptolemies, removed heads of several statues, replacing
them with Roman emperors.
European anthropologists, realizing it would be nearly impossible to change
all Kemetic art and artifacts moved to create and redefine certain human
types. A prime example was categorizing black people responsible for the
establishment of Kemetic (Egyptian) civilization as the 'Mediterranean
race,' defined: dark-skinned white people. This was their way of justifying
black skin in Kemet, but claiming the accomplishments for whites.
Other than the peculiarities of the slave trade, this was a main
contributing factor in the creation of racism/white supremacy.
Unfortunately, a large number of the world's people, particularly in the
West, still believe the original ancient Kamites (Egyptians) were European
types. Some believe the present day Arabs, who invaded Kemet (Egypt) during
the 7th century A.D., were the original inhabitants. This is as inaccurate
as Europeans claiming the same. A precise historical chronology clearly
shows that ancient Greece, Rome or Arabia did not exist during the golden
era of Kemetic (Egyptian) civilization.
Until real historical facts of Afrikan ingenuity and creativity are
incorporated and projected in so-called mainstream media and academia, there
is no hope of racism/white supremacy ever disappearing from human existence.
