    Greetings.

    I have the book in my shelf, and got it from a white french woman actually. And since it was written by a white I sort of put off reading it. But reading the back of it I knew it would be very interesting, and sometime in 2012 I should read it. Thanks for the heads up, family.

    One,

    - Ikoro

    I was not aware of the book or I may have forgotten about it.It has been over 10 or 12 years ago when I made my purchase.I sent off to PBS and ordered the 2 DVD Set made from the book. The video's were great and I am sure that the book was probably even better. The video did not stress on the fact of how wars and invasions alter the progress and development of many cultures. As back then as well as today "Organization and Agression " will take over any civilization and its development from the original people.

    CraigK,

    I am curious as to why you didn't start this thread in the 'open forum'?
    Unless I'm mistaken, 'the front porch' is a place for 'first-timers' who
    come onboard to say hello and or introduce themselves.

    I thought that Africans were the first into Europe, am I wrong?

    Brother RAPTOR and CraigK ... i moved this thread to the Open Forum.

    I see it's a book recommendation and could have been placed in the Author's Forum too.

    No biggie ... though we do appreciate yall putting content in the forum it fits best ... and we have many.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Ok, I know I read that the physical remains of Caucasians can only be traced back 40,000 years while indigenous peoples remains are charted years in the millions...

    I've watched the documentary. It's amazing how genetically strong Africans are. Whites decimated every non-blacks races by bringing germs to them but when they moved to Africa and attempted colonization they got decimated by African germs. African uber genes! Germs saved us from mass white colonization. Africans are indestructible.

    Anything with homo genus is considered human biologically (further down the evolutionary line the more ape-like a human is though). But there is the anthropological definition and the sociological definition. Suppose the dolphins evolve intellect similar to HS, then sociologically they are human but biologically no.
