Are we all African?
Aren't we all the same?
Africans are we?
Are we all African? Do our roots come from an African origin? Africa is most often referred to as the motherhood of civilization, religion, as the cultural womb of existence. There was a recent anthropological article that stated that Africa was the derivative of humankind. It stated that there was seven prototypes of humankind and that of all the continents Africa was the only continent that possessed all seven types of humans. Some continents may have had two or three, but Africa had all seven. Interesting right?!
As we all know, before the continental drift Africa was the center, this is when the continents were a super land mass called Pangaea, which existed roughly 200 to 250 billion years ago. Pangaea is also known as the super continent, because it comprised all of the continents. Africa's original name, Alkebulan, also known as the "motherhood of mankind or garden of Eden." Africa went through a bit of a name metamorphosis some what like that of the African American in the United States.
Africa was once referred to as the following at one point: Alkebulan, Ethiopia, Corphye, Ortegia, Libya, and Africa. In America, African Americans have been referred to as Colored, Black, Negro, Afro-American, and African American, this is something I discovered doing my research in looking upon federal documentation for records regarding African Americans from 1860 to present. I do not think any other group has experienced such a name metamorphosis.
Africa is also accredited by most as the origin of religion and Alkebulan given credit for the oldest most indigenous origins. Alkebulan was utilized by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians. Africa, is known as the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today , was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks and Romans, surprised not. Since Greek was going to run the planet with Hellenization with Alexander the Great leading the way! (no offense Greeks that is also a part of my own lineage.)
So I could give you a spill on how Africa is the motherhood of all religion, but that is entirely a topic that deserves the individual attention of it's own unique hub. So you will see the evidence, the videos, the theories, the books that support my claim. There has been genetic links to all of humankind deriving from Africa. So are we all Africans? Should you as well as celebrating Christmas and Hanukah be incorporating some Kwanzaa for respect of your origin?
Have you had a Malcolm X experience where you see we are all the same? From an anthropological standpoint there are no features that are exclusive to any group, which means all features are spread amongst each group. Oops, there goes the race theory, which is another hub in its self. DNA says that we are all 99.99 percent the same genetically speaking. You be the judge, rock those dreads of every color blond, red, brown, black, orange, green, and blue! Asa!
