Did you know that:
1. Congo's people represent its greatest potential with a population of 65 million, half under the age of 18.
2. Congo is a storehouse of strategic minerals (cobalt, copper, zinc, gold, diamond, silver, magnesium, germanium, uranium, coltan, petroleum and many other resources.
7. Congo has the agricultural capacity to feed the entire world through 2050.
Ancient Egyptians were Black Africans and the following is a synopsis of some of the evidence that supports this view:
Please note that the following video has explicit content - but I like this piece because it explains alot...
Obelisks were taken from Africa and in some cases imitated all around the world . These buildings/structures were in Africa 3500 years ago... London was created 2000 years ago so shows directly how African knowledge and skills were more advance by 1500 years.

African’s and those from the Carribean/those of ethnicity who fought in wars were promised status however they were put on frontline to hopefully die and many of their homes were given to English
The Bristish Army - made recruitment campaigns to engage ethnic minorities
Many Nigerians were brainwashed into fighting against Japan in WW2
Many captains and even the queen at the time said black troops were 3x better than whites and had a sense for the territory and danger; the British Army were slave traders basically buying slaves for the war
Blacks who needed to be taught English were still sold for more money than whites.
British colonial Posters show how 93 Caribbean/African islands/countries were enlisting and drawing in slaves to fight in Wars
William Willberforce worked for Pitt - a man who bought slaves, but commonly people say Willberforce helped blacks...? ima leave that one with you...
Blacks returning from war were denied loans from the bank to buy properties, had to go into the badly bombed areas like elephant, Camberwell, Brixton etc
During these times police sent informers into tenants houses to spy and report back on the black community.
Even Christian themes were used to justify enslavement: One of Sir John Hawkins' slave ships commanded by Francis Drake and owned by Queen Elizabeth was ironically called The Grace of God.
After the Country/ Queen Elizabeth I invested in bringing over numerous blacks to help with trade (to work in the Guilds) she then proclaimed that their were too many blacks in the country displaying serious hypocoracy
Due to the focus on marine business, during the formative years of Lloyd's Insurers (between 1688 and 1807), one of the primary sources of Lloyd's business was the insurance of ships engaged in slave trading, as Britain rapidly established itself as the chief slave trading power in the Atlantic. British shipping carried more than 3.25 million people into slavery, meaning that by the end of the eighteenth century, slave trading had become one of the primary constituents of all British trade. The dangers involved necessarily meant that insurance of slave-trade shipping was a major concern.
The manhole's that you see in the road used to be used for coal and black settlers who found it hard to get housing ended up sometimes sleeping in them.
Gentrification exists – where a predominantly black/ethnic area is gradually torn down moving people out into other dispersed areas but then re-built so expensive that only the upper class (prodominently not a melanin being) can afford e.g. Notting hill.... we'll see how Elephant & Castle develops
The building which accommodates the Imperial War Museum London was formerly the central portion of Bethlem Royal Hospital, or Bedlam, as it was commonly known.
Bethlem Royal Hospital dates back to 1247, when Simon Fitz-Mary, a wealthy alderman and sheriff of London, founded the Priory of St Mary of Bethlehem on the site which is now part of Liverpool Street Station. In the fourteenth century the priory began to specialise in the care of the insane.The asylum was completed in 1815, but soon proved inadequate. After the initial transfer of 122 patients, blocks were added in the very next year for the criminally insane. The building was greatly enlarged by Sydney Smirke from 1835 onwards.
The term bedlam dervives from the mad-house that it used to be.
In those times the blacks in the country, were held in captivity, destitute or deemed insane so a LARGE majority of those within Bedlam were black.
Harold Sidney Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Rothermere (26 April 1868 – 26 November 1940) owner and developer of The DAILY MAIL & DAILY MIRROR,visited and corresponded with Hitler and hoped he would become a popluar figure in Britain. He is quotes as saying Hitler's work was "great and superhuman". Rothmere's decendents still own and run the paper.
Today, some 10.5 million people exist in various forms of slavery, including bonded labour and sex exploitation
The systematic extraction of mineral resources from Africa and Asia over the centuries has contributed to abject poverty in those continents, and deep mental slavery.
John Newton - Slave trader turned evangelical preacher and abolitionist?
John Newton was born in London and went to sea with his sailor father at the age of 11. In 1744, he was press-ganged into the Royal Navy and spent a year on board HMS Harwich. He eventually managed to get himself transferred onto a slave ship and decided to try and make his fortune off the coast of Guinea trading slaves. Nearing the end of the triangular slave trade route in March 1748, Newton's ship was caught in a severe storm in the North Atlantic. Newton later marked this as his moment of religious awakening.
On his return to England, his father's friend, Liverpool merchant Joseph Manesty, found Newton a position on another slave ship. Between 1750 and 1754 Newton made three further voyages as master of slave trading ships from Liverpool to Africa, on to the West Indies and then back to England. He kept extensive logs of these voyages, which provide a detailed account of life on board a slave ship.
In 1754, he suffered a convulsive fit and was forced to give up his seafaring life, although at this stage he had not repudiated his support for the slave trade. Manesty got him a job in Liverpool's customs service.Newton became involved in the evangelical Christian movement and was ordained in 1764. He was appointed curate of a church in Olney, north west of London and soon gained a reputation as a preacher and hymn writer. He collaborated with the poet William Cowper, a neighbour in Olney, in publishing a volume of hymns. Newton's contributions included 'Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken' and 'Amazing Grace'.
The other version of the story is that Newton was abused and mistreated along with her other slaves. It was this period that Newton later remembered as the time he was "once an infidel and libertine, a servant of slaves in West Africa." He sailed back to England in 1748 aboard the merchant ship Greyhound, which was carrying beeswax and dyer's wood. During this voyage, he experienced a spiritual conversion. The ship encountered a severe storm off the coast of Donegal and almost sank. Newton awoke in the middle of the night and finally called out to God as the ship filled with water. It was this experience which he later marked as the beginnings of his conversion to evangelical Christianity. As the ship sailed home, Newton began to read the Bible and other religious literature. By the time he reached Britain, he had accepted the doctrines of Evangelical Christianity. The date was March 10, 1748, an anniversary he marked for the rest of his life. From that point on, he avoided profanity, gambling, and drinking. Although he continued to work in the slave trade, he had gained a considerable amount of sympathy for the slaves. He later said that his true conversion did not happen until some time later: "I cannot consider myself to have been a believer in the full sense of the word, until a considerable time afterwards."
Either way - the prodominent part of his working life was spent on a slave trip; In 1788, perhaps encouraged by the explosion in support for abolition, Newton published a pamphlet called 'Thoughts Upon the African Slave Trade'. He began with an apology for his part in the trade and then described what he had witnessed during his time as a slave trader more than 30 years before.
Does this constitute a hero, an activist a supporter in black acceptance and equality?
In England most women were put to work in plantations as men would be trademen- as they worked so hard and were regularly raped many were baron by 30.
When slavery was abolished plantation owners were compensated for their loss – blacks were given nothing - £20million was given to slave-owners in total
Citizens Bank and Canal Bank in Louisiana, which were ultimately acquired by JP Morgan, accepted approximately 13,000 slaves as collateral and took ownership of approximately 1250 between 1831 and 1865.
During the Holocaust although it is hardly mentioned, German people in their colony of Namibia stole land from African people and when they fought back built railroads, labour camps and medical experiment labs in Namibia in order to work them to death or experiment on their bodies to see how they were able to cope with heat. This happened in 1906 and the German government even apologised in 2004.
The Tuskegee - For forty years between 1932 and 1972, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) conducted an experiment on 399 black men in the late stages of syphilis. These men, for the most part illiterate sharecroppers from one of the poorest counties in Alabama, were never told what disease they were suffering from or of its seriousness. Informed that they were being treated for “bad blood,” their doctors had no intention of curing them of syphilis at all. The data for the experiment was to be collected from autopsies of the men, and they were thus deliberately left to degenerate under the ravages of tertiary syphilis—which can include tumors, heart disease, paralysis, blindness, insanity, and death. “As I see it,” one of the doctors involved explained, “we have no further interest in these patients until they die. By the end of the experiment, 28 of the men had died directly of syphilis, 100 were dead of related complications, 40 of their wives had been infected, and 19 of their children had been born with congenital syphilis. How had these men been induced to endure a fatal disease in the name of science?
Not only was informed consent not obtained, but the physician often fraudulently described the experimental procedure as either a diagnostic procedure or a treatment for the patient's condition, when the physician had no reason to believe that the patient might benefit from the experiment. History has shown that nonconsensual experiments are often performed on captive people in an institution, particularly people who society has regarded as "less worthy" (e.g., Jews in Nazi concentration camp, mentally retarded people in institutions, Negroes, indigent patients, ...). Such people are unable to decline or reject the experiment and few people will ever know what really happened.
Cancer patients (mostly blacks of below-average intelligence who were charity patients) during 1960-72 in Cincinnati were exposed to large doses of whole body radiation as part of an experiment sponsored by the U.S. military. None of the subjects gave informed consent, they thought they were receiving treatment for their cancer. Subjects experienced nausea and vomiting from acute radiation sickness, pain from burns on their bodies, and some died prematurely as result of radiation exposure.
Many of today's old home remedies owe a lot to African slaves; slaves were displaced people with no wealth and no rights.
Health matters were often a source of contention between slaves and their owners. Slave owners demanded to be told when a slave had sickness.
The reason for this is that the owners wanted to ensure they could exercise their own control over a slave's body.
In a some instances the slave owner would provide the same level of health care as he did for his family and himself.
Some owners would treat slaves themselves or have the overseer or plantation mistress treat slaves using various old home remedies.
Mos of the slaves distrusted white doctors and rightly so. Slaves were often experimented on, for instance
Dr Marion Sims considered the daddy of gynecological surgery perfected the method for gynecological surgery on the slaves. He turned the women into drug addicts so he that he could immobilize and sedate them post operatively.
Hundreds of slaves in 1800 including 200 of Thomas Jefferson's slaves were given smallpox in order to test how safe the new vaccine was.
Dr Thomas Hamilton put slaves in an oven which was open pit, their heads were above ground. This was done in order to test what medication permitted someone to withstand a high temperature.
The black slaves preferred to be treated by other blacks or treat themselves. They would often conceal their illnesses even if it meant they would be punished if the slave-owner found out.
Did you ever wonder who invented the Cell Phone? Ok, let's say that you are on a TV game show and have to answer this question to win $10M. The question is, who invented the cellular phone? In all probability most of us could not answer this question. Those of you who know are in a very small minority.
The inventor of the Cellular phone is Henry Sampson, Jr. Sampson is an African-American from Jackson , Mississippi . He attended Morehouse and transferred to Purdue. He received an MS in Engineering from the University Of California (Go Bears). He was awarded an MS in Nuclear Engineering from Illinois and his Ph.D from Illinois . Sampson is the first African-Americano to receive a Ph.D in Nuclear Engineering.
In 1971 Sampson was awarded a patent for the "gamma-electric cell." This Technology was used in the cellular phone. Hopefully Dr. Sampson was well Rewarded for his efforts.
The following full episode is from the Tyra Banks show, about a topic we as black people need to recognise, and FIGHT AGAINST! Skin Bleaching... This happens EVERYWHERE amongst us people of colour.
Did you know that in the Black Hair & Beauty Show they sponsor and promote bleaching creams - even in the booklet/brochure the 2nd inside page for the exhibition is advertising skin bleaching creams/fade creams.
Contrary to what you may have read in the newspapers or heard on the television news, starvation in Africa and the world food crises is not caused by overpopulation or corrupt governments but corporate greed forcing African farmers to grow and export their crops to rich countries.
Institutions built on the profits of slave trade include the Bank Of England, Barclays Bank, Church of England, Lloyds of London, Barings Bank, Tate & National Portrait gallery to name a few.
The term "ethnic" and related forms from the 14th through the middle of the 19th century CE were used in English in the meaning of "pagan, heathen", as ethnikos (Greek: ἐθνικüς, literally "national") was used as the LXX translation of Hebrew goyim "the nations, non-Hebrews, non-Jews".
We say 'we have unconditional love for.... ' BUT all love is conditional - we tell our children to behave and repremand them on a condition of them behaving, we stay with our partners on the condition that they do not cheat on us or abuse us etc - LOVE is great but lets be real it is conditional as we all have our boundaries and set conditions.
The wealth of the two richest men on Earth exceeds the total GDP of the 45 poorest countries in the world.
Three billion people on our Planet earn less than two dollars for their daily subsistence. (The population of the Earth is approximately 6,625,000,000.)
- Evidence from Physical Anthropology
The skeletons and skulls of the Ancient Egyptians clearly reflect that they were a Negroid people with features very similar to those of modern Black Nubians and other people of the Upper Nile and of East Africa.
- Melanin Dosage Test
Egyptologist Cheikh Anta Diop invented a method for determining the level of melanin in the skin of human beings. When conducted on Egyptian mummies in the Museum of Man in Paris, this test indicated that these remains were of Black people.
- Osteological Evidence
"Lepsius canon," which distinguishes the bodily proportions of various racial groups categories the "ideal Egyptian" as "short-armed and of Negroid or Negrito physical type."
- Evidence From Blood Types
Diop notes that even after hundreds of years of inter-mixture with foreign invaders, the blood type of modern Egyptians is the "same group B as the populations of western Africa on the Atlantic seaboard and not the A2 Group characteristic of the white race prior to any crossbreeding."
- The Egyptians as They Saw Themselves
"The Egyptians had only one term to designate themselves =kmt= the negroes (literally). This is the strongest term existing in the Pharaonic tongue to indicate blackness; it is accordingly written with a hieroglyph representing a length of wood charred at the end and not crocodile scales," singular. �Kmt� from the adjective =kmt= black; it therefore means strictly negroes or at the very least black men. The term is a collective noun which thus described the whole people of pharaonic Egypt as a black people."
- Divine Epithets
Diop demonstrates that "black or negro" is the divine epithet invariably used for the chief beneficent Gods of Egypt, while the evil spirits were depicted as red.
- Evidence From the Bible
The Bible states that "�[t]he sons of Ham [were] Cush and Mizraim [i.e. Egypt], and Phut, and Canaan. And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah and Sabtechah." According to Biblical tradition, Ham, of course, was the father of the Black race. "Generally speaking all semitic tradition (Jewish and Arab) class ancient Egypt with the countries of the black."
- Cultural unity of Egypt With The Rest of Africa
Through a study of circumcision and totemism, Diop gives detailed data showing cultural unity between Egypt and the rest of Africa.
- Linguistic Unity With Southern and Western Africa
In a detailed study of languages, Diop clearly demonstrates that Ancient Egyptian, modern Coptic of Egypt and Walaf of West Africa are related, with the latter two having their origin in the former.
- Testimony of Classical Greek and Roman Authors
Virtually all of the early Latin eyewitnesses described the Ancient Egyptians as Black skinned with wooly hair.

AFRICAN MARTIAL ARTS
IN NIGERIA THERE ARE VARIETIES OF INDOOR AND OUTDOOR GAMES SUCH AS "AYO", WRESTLING COMPETITIONS, HORSE RIDING, HUNTING FOR GAMES, SWIMMING ETC. WRESTLING COMPETITION FOR EXAMPLE, FORMS A PART OF NIGERIAN VILLAGE LIFE, BOTH IN THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. THIS WRESTLING DUEL IS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH MARRIAGE WHEN YOUNG SUITORS WOULD BE REQUIRED TO PROVE THEIR PHYSICAL PROWESS TO JUSTIFY THEIR CHOICE OF SPOUSE FROM A PARTICULAR GROUP. IT ALSO USED TO BE A WAY OF IDENTIFYING YOUNG MEN WITH STRENGTH THAT COULD BE RECKONED WITH WHEN THERE WAS THE NEED FOR DEFENCE FROM OUTSIDE ATTACK.
THE NUBA OF SUDAN, AFRICA PRACTICED A FORM OF MARTIAL ARTS WRESTLING OVER 2,800 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST. THERE ARE NO OTHER RECORDS IN ANY CORNER OF THE WORLD THAT CAN CLAIM SUCH A LONG, AND UNBROKEN MARTIAL ARTS TRADITION. THIS FORM OF MARTIAL ARTS, WHICH INCLUDED WEAPONS AS WELL AS FORTIFICATION, AND CERTAINLY EMPTY HAND SELF-DEFENCE, BLOSSOMED IN 12TH DYNASTY EGYPT. NUBA WRESTLING IS THE ORIGINAL MARTIAL ART THAT ALL OF AFRICA, ASIA, AND EUROPE LATER CAME TO BENEFIT FROM. NUBA WRESTLING IS STILL PRACTICED TODAY IN THE SOUTH OF SUDAN AS PARTS OF RITES OF PASSAGE.
CAPOEIRA ANGOLA HAS ITS ROOTS IN BANTU TRADITION AND WAS USED BY THE ENSLAVED AFRICANS OF BRAZIL AS A FORM OF REVOLUTION. IN KEEPING WITH AFRICAN WAR STRATEGIES, CAPOEIRISTAS MASKED THE ART'S EFFECTIVENESS FROM PLANTATION OVERSEERS. THEN AND TODAY, TO UNINFORMED ONLOOKERS THE ART APPEARED TO BE A HARMLESS DEMONSTRATION OF DANCE, ACROBATICS, PLAY AND MUSIC.
