What books do you recommend?
Anything on ancient Egypt? (I am almost 100% certain they had more melanin in their skin then the people in Egypt right now.) I wonder if they have history about the aboriginals in America and their tribes before the Europeans came over. Seems all we hear is about cowboys and indians just like we only hear about Africans after slavery.
Aren't the Ancient Egyptians descendants of the Mesopotamians and not Black Africans? I don't think the ancient Egyptians looked like me at all.
Wait you're right. I had to look at the art of the time back then... I could have sworn they were darker then that... Well then hmmm... There has to be books about Ancient Africa right?
The knowledge is out there but it's difficult to find. All I know about black African history has to do with griots and migration. I really don't know squat about my history before slavery except that there were travelling story tellers and a king named Mansa.
I would love to learn that history as well. Do you know if black Africa ever had a society that wasn't based off of tribes?

There were many kingdoms that rose and fell and my favorite society is probably the Ghana Empire because they domesticated camels pretty early. Tribes were always integral in Africa but organized states were formed.

Now that is some history that should be taught! Do you know any good reads on this?

Dang... Write a book! I would personally love to investigate this as well. I've always had a fascination with history as well as archeology. History tends to repeat itself so it's a great thing to know history to be able to see the future.

Did Ancient Rome have a market economy, traditional economy or a command economy?

All hisotry should be taught at all times; we should not divide on racial lines.

It's ******** condescending.
As though the entirety of "black history" (and btw isn't "black" not the PC term any more? It's like the United Negro College Fund, where I get labelled a bigot for saying "Negro". I'm like, it's what I'm giving you money for, a*****e! And suddenly I'm the p***k?!) could possibly be summed up in 28 days. Minus weekends of course, so actually 20. Except some schools give you Valentines' off so more like 18.
Yes, 18 days, six hours a day of actual schooling at best so 208 hours, can explain the entire history of a race.
Of course, at the end of each day you have to go sit in the back of the bus, soooo...

Hope I will not regret this.
If you understand how gays are discriminated against, how it works,
why can't you understand about Blacks?

I am Black; that is why I'm making this statement. I believe that all history should be one, rather than us segregating our history into one month. I know that it was made to highlight Black history at a time when Blacks were denied their place in history, but now, in modern rimes, should we not combine all histories into one
