I think the mistake you and black people make is trying to convince other race of your great cultural heritage while they thrive on denying those achievement.
Here is a little story for you. I was one day browsing one of those white nationalist website and they were talking about how to make their plight less radical and more appealing to a wider white audience. So users had their different inputs. Like how they shouldn't say that blacks are inferior or blacks should go back to Africa, etc. But, one topic that got my attention was the one about how they shouldn't try stealing other people's culture and claiming Ancient Egypt was white. Believe me, such mentality is not restricted to white nationalist. White people in general have a great obsession at being the best or around the best even if they're not fit to be. They want to be the biggest, fastest, and smartest race but unfortunately this great African race whose been on this planet more than four times longer than them will always be in their way and that's why they hate you so much. Even the ones who proclaim they're liberal and enlightened either envy you or hates you.
Because of their vast access to paperbacks and the media white people have been very successful at convincing other groups that the world is still square. But unbeknownst to them this is not a sprint, it's a marathon. In their mind the world is coming to an end so they're rushing to 'convince' the world of stupidity. Africans have been on this planet the entire 200K years of human existence. We understand the value of patience, they don't. Whites are in the 'neanderthal I'm going to go extinct so let's hurry up' clock. Africans know better.
They spent over 100 years trying to convince the world that those dark skinned depicted and morphologically African people civilization(Ancient Egypt) were built by wandering caucasians in the desert. It only took just a few years to embarrass themselves by finding out they were genetically African(Haplotype E1b1a). Yep! I can tell you're black, go do a DNA test. The great Ramesses III share the same haplotype as you. Funny thing is, they did their own research to prove themselves wrong.
The point I'm trying to make to you is, the more Black people try to convince other races of their great heritage the more they open the door for them to try to embarrass you by denying it. Just let them find out. Trust me, you have plenty of time. Remember, in the 1920s white people were the strongest and fastest race on this planet. Whites are the only race who would rather take a good perception any day over some reality.
Reality is Ancient Egypt and it's Sahara origin is genetically negroid(E1b1a). Perception is white people use to have black skin and mandibular prognathism 5K years ago. Perception can evoke laughter sometimes. Lol
Believe it or not, the Zimmerman trial has been the final straw in breaking my desire to bring about racial harmony. I believe that there still may be some good white people around but it seems the vast majority still cannot see blacks as people and subsequently refuse to apply human emotion and reasoning to their image of us.
That used to bother me, I assure you that I no longer give a fug.
My goal is to now to end modern (past 10-20 yrs) hip hop culture and popularity in the Black community and educate other blacks about history and the heritage we inherited. I am seeing a shift in what is commonly called "pop culture" but what is really just 90's era black culture and other races assimilating that self destructive behavior. This is a really interesting phenomenon as many blacks have had their lives, image and family ruined by society for the behavior, language and mentality that is now so prevalent in todays society. Lol, even "ebonics" is becoming colloquial speak in polite society where in the 90's it was a sure sign that blacks were less intelligent and thus unable to speak proper english. Boggles the mind how people can be so hypocritical. But w/e. They can do what they want, and I will no longer seek to enlighten the entire populace and will instead focus on my own little piece of it.
I post here because there are some blacks here that are interested in this stuff and if anyone has any questions I would love to talk about it.
