    Crude historical depictions of African Americans as ape-like may have disappeared from mainstream U.S. culture, but research presented in a new paper by psychologists at Stanford, Pennsylvania State University and the University of California-Berkeley reveals that many Americans subconsciously associate blacks with apes.

    The Jews writing the Ham myth and it being reinforced in Hollywood help slavery and dehumanize blacks. However blacks have picked it up and internalized it

    The main reason why we do not have unity to create a safety net in this nation ,
    why there is no Pan African defense against the colonization of Africa, and why there is no unity or recirpocity concern among us in the Carribbean,

    is becuase we discriminate amongst each other over nationality, educational level, complexion,
    tribe, and economic status

    wherever we as Africans live on the planet in more then a quarter million

    What is the reason for that discrimination, at a time when we need unity more then ever?????

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......All the more reason why it behooves getting an understanding of the Out of Africa theory as significant and incumbent, upon African Americans:

    DNA studies suggest that all humans today descend from a group of African ancestors who—about 60,000 years ago—began a remarkable journey.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Also what's sad about this, would be that a white science faction pushes Neanderthals, while Creation is not taught in public schools; yet we have the PhD program addressing black folks subconsciously viewed by whites, as apes...smh, what's really going on? Wow!

    When all dots are connected, its very strange to say the least.

    Peace In,

    Plenty of public schools offer courses on religion. The crux of that main argument is that creationism isn't scientific and it doesn't belong in a science class.

    This really doesn't have anything to do with Neanderthals and other human relatives mixing with our species or the fact that there are a lot of people interested in race and class in the academic scientific community.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Sorry, but you don't get it, really. Science pushes Neanderthals and macro evolution, only Intelligent Design is taught, sparingly in schools, mostly chartered. The question is why would whites see us as apes and not themselves. Any response you make, please only address the above underscored question.

    Peace In,

    The white scientific faction you cite above considers all human beings to be apes.

    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human

    In any decent modern biology book human beings will be described as members of the great ape family. The main problem here is that this is a human vs non-human mentality that makes the dehumanization dangerous (especially when we're talking about steps towards genocide). This problem does have roots in the fact that a lot of people don't like to consider themselves animals of any sort and definitely not apes of any kind.

    Now that your underlined question has been addressed lets move on to that first point:

    Both those things are "pushed" by science because they're true. I think the problem here is religious conservatives don't want a simple examination of religious beliefs in school. They want it to be taught like literal scientific fact despite the lack of evidence.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Not so fast brother, lol, slow down...In my mind, you haven't answered the crux of the question nor explained the strength of this thread topic; plus I'm in Chat, attending oldsoul's class.

    Again, if what you say is true as highlighted above, then why do whites, subconsciously, see us as apes and not themselves?

    Following your logic, its okay for whites to disassociate themselves from the very teachings of Science, correct?

    Peace In,
