I always hear black folks talk about how "black and proud" they are. But those same people will turn around and demonize African culture (Isese, Vodun, etc), or worse yet, they will completely disassociate themselves with Africa and cling to some other people's culture like those folks that claim "we are the original Jews," or that "Islam is the Black man's religion."

Even in the conscious and Afrocentric communities, people are rabidly obsessed with KMT, Kush and Nubia, as if their much more recent and much more direct ancestors didn't produce great wonders in Dahomey, Ghana, Kongo, Mali and Oyo.

Why are we so afraid of our heritage?

We are descendants of West and West-Central Africans. Why isn't that enough for us to be proud of?

Why are so quick to jump all over East, North and Southern Africa claiming everything from Ethiopia to the Zulus?

What is so wrong with West and West-Central Africa?

Few of us are aware of the greatness of Africa or its wholeness. We're no more West Africa than East Africa; figuratively speaking, the West moved East and the East moved West.

There was not a single soul that arrived on the shores of North America that didn't have at least several thousands of years of ancestry in West or West-Central Africa, so your "figurative" argument is baseless.

:10500: do i have to pass a 'proud' test or something?​




Yes you do James. You require us to pass a blackness test. Thus it is only right you pass a proud test. So: 1st you must wear read, blck and green while in a vat of hot oils, singing the Black National Anthem
