Columbusing: WE WENT FROM RUNNING KINGDOMS TO NOT RUNNING NOTHING IN OUR OWN COMMUNITIES Schools will teach them slavery. African history did not start with slavery. Slavery interrupted African history. When I was in school I got told my ancestors were enslaved and before that they were swinging from trees. Then I learned that my African ancestors created the first civilisations, while in Europe they were still living in caves. Now I teach in schools and I tell young black men about Kush, Timbuktu, Sudan and the Congo. I tell them about the Moors and there integral involvement in the renaissance, how they brought hygiene to Europe. If it wasn't for their ancestors fighting themselves free, slavery would have continued. I teach them about Mansa Musa I of Mali โ€“ the 14th century African king who was named the richest person in all history.(With an inflation adjusted fortune of $400 billion, Mansa Musa I would have been considerably richer than the worldโ€™s current richest man) I tell them that there are more pyramids in Sudan than there are in Egypt. I teach them that the enslavement of their ancestors was the worlds greatest crime, that without it there would have been no industrial revolution in England. That their ancestors built that White House, because the head Architect and construction Team were African. That the American civil war and how it would have never been won if it wasn't for the African regiments. I show them they're beautiful. Not that they are superior because supremacy is the reason why the world is in Chaos. Also to love their skin because it's full of melanin. I teach them that the Europeans at the time were stupid for having to steal people and resources, they should have just asked and traded, then there would be no imminent revolution, just peace and fair trade. I teach them that Christopher Columbus had an African Navigator called Pedro Alonso Niรฑo, At the time of Columbus, African navigators were in advance of their white European counterparts. They had (already) established documented trade with China, Mediterranean Europe, India and Atlantic islands. I teach because in school I was told lies and mistruths. I taught myself and my friends-Fam taught me, not the schools. I teach them because I love them. chakabars
