What history do African descendants ACTUALLY have to be proud of?

    1. We need Tariq Nasheed to school us on the history of Africa and blacks, just how he schooled Jared Taylor in their recent debate. He is far more woke than any of you white supremacists.

      But in seriousness, Africa is a large place, so of course it'd have a large amount of race mixing. Not only that, but I am highly open to a recent theory called "social evolution". I feel the natives of most nations are people who simply didn't or couldn't evolve the same as say the Chinese or Europeans. The best example is that whites are more pale than other races because they build roofs over their houses and had a culture of admiring pale skin (a sign of wealth).

      This kind of cultural advancement theory is not anywhere near the insanity that Kruat spewed out, but it is an interesting take on how people went from being brown to white.

    2. Among other things, the entire history of the Bantu people, the Swahili language and its attendant history of economic importance, Zulu's. Not to mention a whole bunch of pre-written history exploits that are lost to time. Mind you, that isn't to say that African empires didn't have ways of non-verbal communication. The Incan Empire encoded information on ropes with knots, so who knows just how pre-3000 BCE Africa recorded their knowledge? It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that papyrus, plant fibers, and animal skins degrade. And at these lengths of time, even clay tablets and stone carvings can be worn out.

      It's like modern race "realists" conception of human history only starts with Sumeria and Egypt or something.

    3. Behold, the Great Mosque of Djenne!

      A monumental triumph, in my opinion! The world's largest mud building, too. At least, as far as I know. Located in Mali, site one of the great literate African civilizations, it is the apogee of an entire architectural tradition. It fills me with pride.

    5. It is indeed. Non-muslims (in practice, white people) are banned from entering it though; because a foreign media team came inside and held a Vogue photo-shoot, featuring scantily clad women in modified, sexy versions of Islamic clothing. I guess the results could have been predicted.

      I could probably visit, though!

    6. Apparently it's even bigger than it looks there;
      [​IMG] wow
      16m tall at max. Apparently the wood sticking out of it is primarily for decoration, and to act as a scaffold for occasional repairs.

    7. Yep! I think it's every few years, they have a big festival to make mud and fetch it from the riverbed to the mosque, to slap onto the sides and replenish the mud lost through atmospheric corrosion. The kids love it, and when everyone's all cleaned up there is a big feast and much merry-making. Even the non-muslims in the area get in on the fun. So as well as being a functional religious building (roughly the equivalent of a cathedral), and a record-breaking structure, it's a real focal point of the community.

      Yeah, I think it's wow-worthy as well :biggrin:

    8. Assuming Wikipedia can be believed
      , this structure was built in 1907. Using slave labor. And was paid for by the French government.:\

    9. There was an equally massive mosque situated in the same spot since ancient times, which fell into disrepair as the result of a succession of unfriendly local monarchs who refused to contribute to its upkeep. Sure, the French provided money to assist with the rebuilding, but the architecture is 100% Sudano-Sahelian.

      Also, nobody in Africa gives even the tiniest shit about slave labour.
