    Can someone explain population growth to me? How did Black Americans grow from 700k in 1790 to 48 million in 2024?

    I apologize if I offend anyone with this since I'm kind of drunk but how can a small number of people grow into nearly 50 million strong? As far as I know, the United States stopped importing African slaves in 1808, and they weren't any large scale Black immigration into the US until the 1960s...

    WAS Ancient Egypt a PAWG Civilization

    It is disappointing that this topic still must be discussed in 2023. If you scour the internet about the racial origins of ancient Egypt, you’ll find that most people believe they were non-black. The answer is obvious to anyone with eyes and common sense. However, there are still detractors even...

    Republican efforts to whitewash Black History

    Since it appears that a definite coordination of removing the history of African American studies from schools, censorship of books in libraries among other things. So that these efforts don't get lost in other threads, we probably should have a thread just on that. I will update this post...

    Who said powerful Black men can't be pacifists?

    :ohhh: But really this image that Black men need to be violent to achieve their goals is ridiculous to say the least. Salim Suwari showed how peace can be achieved if smart people banded together to fight issues with love.
