You can't conceive any other condition of black people and Africans. If I told you Europe was once the land of poverty, starvation and crime when Africa was the land of kings and queens, culture, peace and resources... Your stereotypical conditioned mind couldn't fathom that.
Agreed but the project that broke records was nothing to write home about, that's why it isn't significant to me
Well your talking about the last 5 centuries but in the last 40 centuries what continent experienced more starvation and poverty, Africa or Europe? What continent showed more progress Africa or Europe? Your idea of "progressed" is based upon the European scale that america is based on in which SLAVES worked to establish an economic power base. Before that version of "progress" was established, thats not what "progress" was based upon. Now in the last 5 centuries, Africa as also accepted that "progress" is determined by a European model which is money over culture, politics and society... Before hand thats not how Africa ruled when it had been the cradle of civilization for thousands of years. Now lets say the Africans fought off the whites and did not allow them to put in a power structure based upon a European model? Then yes the blacks that were brought over here would have "progressed" in Africa. And again, your version of "progressed is based upon a European model. You live in this time period so all you can conceive is the power of the banking system which manipulates other countries and all you have to go on is the last 5 centuries of history that america culture will allow you to know about. And you certainly can't fathom that black people once ruled over the majority of the planet and brought almost all forms of culture and civilization to man. Now another thousand years from now america will be an ancient land and the european model for "progress" will be something else and it Africa will be in another condition but overall Africa isn't just what you've been taught it is by white people during the last few centuries of history. Europe was a nation over run by poverty, starvation and crime for alot longer then Africa was once you factoring in history beyond your school text books. Even americas "progress" according to their own European based model is a product of African slaves, African political structure (which the Greeks brought to Europe after learning it in Africa), and African culture. You see Africa as only a savage land because living at this particular time only allows but so much room for your little mind to conceive something else. When whites from this last century started to dig up Egypt, it was clear that "blacks" aint just this one dimensional people that they would like to stereotypically judge them as and even their own culture ended up being traced back to Africa.
