They never told me the African continent was home of some of the most beautiful human beings
that your eyes could ever behold.
Was it envy that whites drove whites to lie and distort the physical attractiveness of the native born Africans?
Underrating their looks, because their faces were too glorious to behold?
Were they like Napoleon's army who when they first saw the face of The Great Spinx was that of a full African featured male they fired a cannon and blew off it's nose.
Their lies have been exposed no matter how they try to underrate Africans physical beauty
it still remains strong and as long as they live, their stunning appearance with lives with them

Napoleon shooting the nose off the Sphinx is a myth!
http://www.smithsonianjourneys.org/blog/photo-what-happened-to-the-sphinxs-nose-180950757/

Sketches of the Sphinx by the Dane Frederic Louis Norden were created in 1737 and published in 1755, well before the era of Napoleon. However, these drawings illustrate the Sphinx without a nose and clearly contradicts the legend. So what really happened?

The Egyptian Arab historian al-Maqrīzī wrote in the 15thcentury that the nose was actually destroyed by a Sufi Muslim named Muhammad Sa'im al-Dahr. In 1378 CE, Egyptian peasants made offerings to the Great Sphinx in the hope of controlling the flood cycle, which would result in a successful harvest. Outraged by this blatant show of devotion, Sa'im al-Dahr destroyed the nose and was later executed for vandalism. Whether this is absolute fact is still debatable.

Interesting

Norden died in 1742 and Napoleon was born in 1769

Image drawn by Norden before Napoleon was thought of in 1737, supposedly published in 1755

But regardless of who did what or what happened to the nose, what did the "Sphinx" mean to the people?

Interpretations can also be mistaken as information, but useful to determine an historical ideology.
Refer to the worship of Tutu or Sekmet

And I do agree, the land mass we call "Africa" holds an enormous wealth of beauty.

Why else would it have been once called "Utopia"... Ethiopia?

Plus, they don't have to deal with a lot of man made isms like some of us here do.
That's a free spirit shining through the woman pictured above.

Nothing more beautiful than that
One of the great advantages of the internet age is now we have greater access to see all the beautiful aspects
of the African people. I am sincere when I wrote I only wished my eyes could have fallen on the facial beauty
of the men women and children of this continent. All we saw were old clips of Tarzan and tribes in the wilderness.

As children we assumed that is what Africa was about, No one was around to tell us the truth
I can imagine if someone had sat down and showed pictures of these pretty people to my friends
and myself, that would have eliminated "that I wish game" we played inside our play houses, as we
held and rocked our dolls. We never would have stopped for a wishful and said "I wish I was half white"

I think families should gather around images of African people from time to time. There is still a lot of ignorance
and misconception that need to be straightened out. A whole lot.
Thank you for your "as always" brilliant input.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
