How People of Color Invented the Modern World

Many people are under the misconception that Europeans gave birth to modern civilization. Eurocentric history consistently ignores the achievements of people of color, while attributing the advancement of humankind to the ancient Greeks, the Romans, British and other European peoples. Aristotle, Isaac Newton and Leonardo Davinci are held up as pioneers of human progress, while the accomplishments of other peoples are ignored and suppressed.

An inconvenient fact that Europeans choose to ignore, is that civilization originated in Africa. The Nubian kingdom in Egypt can be traced back to before 2000 B.C, and archaeologists still marvel at their achievements to this day. The Nubians invented modern architecture and engineering, constructing the pyramids and pharaohs with their bare hands and minimal resources. The Nubians also developed the first astronomical devices for mapping the movements of stars and the planets. By all accounts the Nubians were among the most advanced civilizations in history, and their achievements paved the way for others to build on their success.

In addition, countless inventions that Eurocentric history claims as European, would never have been developed without the key contributions of people of color. For example, Algebra, the basis of all mathematics and physics, was invented by Arabs over a thousand years ago, laying the foundations for the scientific progress of the modern world. Many of the machines and appliances invented during the industrial revolution would not have been possible without the contributions of African Americans, such as Elijah McCoy, who invented the oil-drip cup for lubricating steam engines. It is also little understood that Nigerian Phillip Emeagwali invented the fastest computer in the world during the 1980s.

It’s tragic that Eurocentric history continues to indoctrinate us into forgetting these inventions and contributions, and that Europeans are unjustifiably held up as the architects of the modern world. Hopefully, with the implementation of Common Core, we will be able to update the curriculum to include these achievements, and correctly atribute the development of modern civilization to people of color.

Jesus was a black man.

trav777

yes.

Africans wuz kangz n sheeit.

Any cursory study of afrocentric history shows that not only did they do the things that the article says, they also had mind controlled flying pyramids…before the white man came and sicced The Violence on them. And stole everything.

The white man has been doing that ever since, explaining why everywhere there are Africans, we find The Violence.

Much is made of the assertion that Egyptians are arabs, which is a Caucasian offshoot, and that king tut’s DNA sequenced as descended from common ancestors with Europeans but not sub-Saharan Africans, and that to this day, Egyptians STILL aren’t sub-Saharan Africans, which is a better descriptor for “black,” but these things are just racism!

There is ONLY ONE RACE, the human race, except when we are crediting people of color with inventions or calling out white people for WHITE supremacy and WHITE privilege! In addition the jewish race is the only legitimate one that needs to be studied or have an ethnic homeland.

Moreover, the invention of algebra by the “father of Algebra,” a greek named Diophantus…that’s a black sounding name if there ever was one! He wuz probably a kang n sheeit and the history books pretended he was white! There’s very little to tie algebra to arabs; greeks, Persians, maybe some kurds, yes…any time you see this, be aware it’s eurocentrism in play and everyone was probably a black man! We can see the total connection to the modern day African with algebra; the traditions of the little black children sitting around reading, doing algebra, looking at the stars, inventing things- Africans are doing this sort of thing constantly while whites shuffle around with their pants down, engaging in drug trafficking and other criminal behavior. And the government covers it all up! It’s pretty clear just by looking at the modern descendants of the inventors of history to see who it was who ACTUALLY did everything and who didn’t.

Black Lives Matter

You’re 100% correct. Ancient Egyptians were Black. Hieroglyphics on pyramids clearly show that the Pharaohs were Black and had people from all around, including whites, visiting to pay tribute. Later the Greeks and Romans stole African-invented technology, invaded the peaceful African peoples, and committed violence against womyn — which has caused modern Egyptians to appear more Brazilian in hue. But the Ancient Egyptians were undoubtedly Black.

Babylonians were “Semites” — referring to “semi,” meaning part-Black and part-Asian. The Cradle of Civilization was Black. That’s why scientists agree that people originally came from Africa.

Semite does not mean semi, it originated from the Hebrew word shem, and it means a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs

Like Jesus, Keith Lamont Scott was also black, and like him, he was also murdered by an Uncle Tom. His wife knew how they were crazy, she insisted and said “Keith, don’t do it!” (aka don’t turn the page of your philosophical treaty) but Keith was so absorbed by what he was reading, he couldn’t imagine that the cop could consider this as a provocation. This is a genocide.

Couple of comments:

Greatness usually is recognized regardless of any lies or propoganda thrown against it.

Everyone I know is familiar with the accomplishments of ancient Egypt and contributions of the assyrians and other groups in middle east during the dark ages.

Is this article saying that there are two groups of people: whites and people of color?

It is fair to say that Africa is receiving the credit it is due.

Very good point to raise; It seems to be the political African/Caribbean Americans who like to create the 2 camps. Actual African, Asian, Arabic and Latin folks I have met and know sure do not see themselves as being brethren! If someone thinks the US and Europe has the worst racism, they clearly havent travelled much.

Africans, Arabs and Hispanics are all people of color, and along with Jews have all been oppressed throughout history by whites. They are also systematically ignored by biased Eurocentric history. This article sets the record straight about their achievements.

That’s the dumbest crap I’ve ever heard. You honestly sound like some anti-white racist.

Your article is completely wrong also. Seriously, go and learn some ancient history, learn more about : Sumerians, Mesopotamia, Phoenicians, and all the other ancient civilizations. The first ‘civilization’ is regarded to have come from the Middle East. Long before 2000BC also. Your history is so shoddy. I remember doing extensive research on ancient history years ago and it was completely different, all historical documentation, from wide sources the world over, including non European historical evidence, is completely different to what you suggest. Europe never says it was the first civilization either. And yes some discoveries genuinely were done by Europeans. Others were not. Nothing amazing about it. Go and learn about the foundations of languages, maths etc. The Greek language came from Semites. Greek language is the foundation of all other European languages. The middle east (primarily modern day Iraq) was the centre of technology and discovery and made strides, until the Greeks got hold and went berserk with all their mathematical discoveries. No legitmate Scholar be they Chinese, Arab, Jew, European, or otherwise, believe what you wrote. Only racist nutjobs do. You’re obsessed with framing things from this weird ‘white’ people vs the rest lens. You’re more an ideologue than you are a historian. Real historians don’t do that.

Apartheid, racism, imperialism, colonialism, segregation, slavery, and Islamophobia.

Apartheid – wholly African
Racism – africa had the first slaves and racism is more prominent in Asia than it ever was anywhere else in the world
Imperialism – has been going on since the beginning of time
Colonialism – all nations have colonized, that how places became populated.
Segregation – separating a group, done since the beginning of time, warrior classes were seperated, or segregated, from other classes routinely throughout history.
Slavery – invented in Africa, remember the Jews and the Egyptians, and continues there til this day but you say nothing about that because it doesn’t fit your narrow racist views
Islamaphobia – you ignorant sjw, this is a made up word, nobody fears a political system wrapped in a cult acting like a religion. They fear the followers who would kill them.
Are you really stupid enough to believe the spoon fed crap they tell you or have you the intelligence to learn things on your own.

Mark Dean was born in 1957. The first general purpose computer (ENIAC) was started in 1943 and finished in 1946. Wow…

Electricity – Allesandro Volta made the first battery in 1800. Lewis Lattimer wasn’t even born until 1848. Sheesh.

Automobile – 1769 Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot. Frederick (CR) Patterson was born in 1871…102 years later.

Algebra was invented by a guy in what is now called Iran – and it would’ve taken him over 2 months to travel from where he did most of his studies (of Greek and Sanskrit math and science) to the capital of the Nubian (aka Kush) kingdom. He would not have considered himself the same color or race as the Nubians, and the nubians during his lifespan were predominantly Christians (not Arabs). What a bizarre re-write of history.

Did I say he communicated his knowledge of Algebra to the Nubians? The point is, Algebra was invented by Arabs, who are also people of color.

Technically speaking black is the absence of all color, so they technically aren’t people of color, they are people of no color.

Stacy Stites

Actually, in the physical realm, black is the presence of all colors. Only in the light spectrum is black the absence of color. I’m just saying.

Justsayin
Justsayin

Black is not the absence of all color. Both Psycho and BLM are stating falsehoods and half-truths. Human life came out of Africa, so the roots of modern civilization DID in fact originate in Africa. All later developments could not exist without that which came before it. The claims that black people have not contributed to scientific advancements is highly inaccurate. BLM, your specific claims are also needlessly inaccurate–a shame as they make it all the easier for people like pyscho to hold steadfast in ignorance–responding to ignorance with ignorance serves no one. You are both claiming partial truths in order to feel superior over large groups of people who are different from you.

Nothing in this world is actually seperate from anything else. We have divided the world into pieces with our words and our thoughts so as to “figure it out” and in the process forgot that these divisions are purely conceptual and of our own imagining. We are now baffled about how it all fits together, blind to the obvious truth that the world was never made up of smaller pieces to begin with. The pieces are actually nothing more then patterns in the flow of energy that appears as this universe–patterns evoked by our mind. This is true of inventions, and true of race.

All cultures, past and present, are a part of modern civilization; arguing as to which culture deserves the most credit is nothing more than the stroking of one’s ego.

Justsayin
Justsayin

To be clear, though, BLMs claims were exaggerations–not falsehoods–as the people he/she credited as inventors were in fact important contributors. I suspect this is an over-compensation in response to the delusional claims that Europeans alone created the modern world.

A tour-de-force of an article and probably no coincidence on the authors part with the much heralded release this week of Darryl Jenks new book: ‘Subverting the Patriarchal Paradigm; Dreams under a Zamundan Baobob’. Many readers probably recognize his previous lightly acclaimed blockbuster Best sellers like ‘Mesozoic Memoirs of the Matriarchy’ and ‘Milk con Leche’.

No, you’re a racist. You and your ilk are what’s inherently wrong with this country. You sit around and bitch and moan about your ancestors being treated badly, trying to blame all your shortcomings and bad decisions on ‘the white man’. Please shut up. You call yourselves ‘african-americans’ yet you’ve never been to Africa, nor have any of your family. If it’s so bad here go to Africa, but the problem is they don’t want your lazy ass either. They want people who want to work and better themselves, not people who want to sit around and bitch all day. Face it, blacks from Africa hate ‘african-americans’ because the loudest are spoiled brats who want to blame everyone else for their troubles.

Why don’t you go back to Europe? It’s interesting that you would say Africans hate African-Americans. I’ve never seen that. But I have seen that Europeans hate Donald Trump and his fans. So I guess they won’t take you back either.

Anyway, you are clearly intrigued by the works of Mr. Jenks – so a good starting point and primer for you would likely be one of his earliest works: ‘Truth is Stranger than non-fiction; The darker the berry the sweeter the juice’. A stunning expose into the dark underworld of the hair-weave industry. Even the most priviliged of readers willing to take just a cursory glance will be astounded at the prescient, harbinger laced prophecy he graced us with so long ago.

White supremacists have always tried to usurp African accomplishments.

We know nowadays that the pharaohs were black. There are Egyptian paintings to prove that.

But this historical fact is so upsetting to European supremacists that they actually used chemicals to lighten the skin of the pharoahs on the Egyptian wall paintings to make them look like modern day light skinned Arabs instead of Africans.

And simultaneously they used separate chemicals to darken the paintings of the light-skinned Arab slaves tied together by rope and carrying baskets on their backs while being whipped to make those slaves look like Africans, instead of light-skinned Arabs which they actually were.
