You see, African-Americans really do believe that Africa has nothing of worth to discover and so they look for evidence everywhere else-Russia, China, Europe, Ireland,Sibera etc etc. They invent populations in some of the most obscure places. I also admire that you do not trust Runshko(sp?) as his theories only serve to ridicule Afrocentric scholarship even more. HAve you heard of Frank Snowden or Henry Louis Gates? Both are black and very respectable.
Acually there is a mysterious black population that lives in Russia around the black sea. Some accounts link them to seostris II,which was a pharoah that went out and conquered all the way to trace by heordotus.
Yeah I know about both Frank Snowden,and Henery Louis gates Jr and neither one of them i repsect,because of their stance on ancient egypt. I still feel egypt was an African civlization,and there is more than enought refutable proof upper egypt where the civlization began was black.
Snowden,and gates are nothing more but established buck dancers. I agree looking to places like china is absrub,but not ancient egypt. Egypt is in Africa and yes black people populated it. The evidence is with nabta which is older than any megalith in Europe,and they pyramids was built by black Africans.
A kingdom called Taseti also developed before egypt,which according to professor bruce willams bears the oldest inscription of a pharoah.
Paul I am from egypt,and I agree the fellahin are the real desendats of the ancient egyptains.
Another proven fact is that nubians in meroe used tetracycline before europeans discovered it. THey used as an antiseptic.
Anyway what is your purpose on this site auora??
Do you have a transscipt of that runoko rashidi chat???

And about you ibn battua comment about cannibalism in Africa, that is not really proof sdince leo africanus also said bad things about africans,but this was because he was muslims and also biased.
