SUPPRESSING HISTORY
By DR. KWAKU PERSON-LYNN, Ph.D.


Suppressing AFRIKAN world history is top priority in the intellectual world.
It contains stories that will forever transform world history. The greatest
area of change and correction is revealing that world civilization evolved
from AFRIKAN civilization. It was ancient before Europeans started the
struggle of creating civilization. AFRIKANS were the only people with
experience and the capacity to teach from its universities. Europeans
(ancient Greeks and Romans) had no great learning centers. The Nile Valley
was the intellectual, spiritual, educational, industrial center for the
ancient world. The areas of science, medicine, mathematics, engineering,
parenting, architecture, philosophy, religion, public works projects,
distribution, preparing food and so many other human activity areas were
created there and were distributed throughout the world by various
conquerors and travelers.
This revelation changes the entire complexion of all we were taught. Once
this is realized, there will be no accurate history books published outside
of a few exceptions: John G. Jackson¹s Introduction To African Civilizations
and Chancellor Williams¹ Destruction Of Black Civilization, the various
volumes of The Journal Of African Civilizations, edited by IVAN VAN SERTIMA,
along with some other rare literature. These works are closer to accuracy
than the large majority of books published on the subject. What is missing
is a current book, incorporating the vast amount of incredible new
information, adding a new component, DNA studies. This new literary effort
can only be legitimate from an AFRIKAN point of view. Writers of European
descent have written the majority of books on AFRIKAN history. This is not
to say Europeans cannot write history. They are better at writing their own
history than any one else. It is more the concept of starting from within,
rather than without. Beginning with the primary, rather than the traditional
method of analyzing and interpreting from the secondary. Europeans have
written volumes on AFRIKAN history. A mammoth amount is colonial or slave
history, written from that perspective. To have a holistic approach to
history, one must examine as many perspectives as possible.

A view that has been alive for a few years is that one must start with the
origin of humanity. There is such a lack of respect for Ernest E. Just, an
American AFRIKAN biologist who worked at Howard University, early 1900s, who
through his fertilization and cell separation research brought us DNA.
Thanks to his efforts, the origin of humanity work is almost at its
conclusion. All of the present evidence leads straight to AFRIKA, more
specifically, Ethiopia.

The AFRIKAN influence in world civilizations is so massive it may take a few
decades to document all that it means. Unfortunately, there are strenuous
efforts to obstruct this information from public consumption and
dissemination. There are people afraid of change. There are innate beliefs
that people of AFRIKAN descent do not have the intellectual capacity to do
serious scholarship. And there are those who suffer from the mental illness
of color prejudice.

Lack of knowledge can be one cause of negative conduct. The bulk of immoral
behavior by people of AFRIKAN descent, particularly the youth, today is
acquired from birth, several generations, learning and acting someone else¹s
habits, customs, behavior, principles, culture, almost totally abandoning
everything their ancestors taught. Cursory examination of things projected
in Western culture indicates that it does not put much value in truth and
moral character. That can be devastating and self destructive to young
people being born and raised in that kind of environment. It will make
people with little resources prey on each other. Understanding that this is
arranged by purposeful design is the beginning of developing counter
measures.

One of many reasons why it is mandatory information of Afrikan world history
be researched, written, distributed, read and analyzed. In one sense, it is
liberating. It frees a person from seeing the world from one perspective;
primarily that people of European descent created all the great things. As
self-serving as that has been for the perpetrators of that type of thinking,
much of it is based on gross inaccuracies and omissions. Western
intellectuals are fearful their authoritative scholarship and public trust
may not prove as precise and accepted as it once was. This could cause a
great dilemma among Western scholars as students, faculty and the general
public become aware of this. Their next statement may be, "Since most of our
teachers and books did not give us all of the information or withheld
information, maybe we should look elsewhere." The foremost concern is where
that elsewhere may be.

Yes indeed!!!!!!

[And thanks for the reply to the previous post!] Your post sums it all up: all these problems we are facing have NOTHING to do with genetics, as many brain-washed white people still think it may be; it’s rather a ‘social-conditioning’ kind of thing: training (or training + brain-washing!) … the arrangements most of us are born into, forced into. It also has a lot to do with the complexes and complexities of cohabitation: hatred and suspicion, guilt, fear, shame, selfishness and the problems of living together in a modern society. Of course poverty -- coupled with lack of good family values and virtues, lack of culture and education etc -- creates chaos in a family and the minds of the offspring of such a family, not in a whole race! Unfortunately, some Afrikans (at least some of us in Afrika) still believe they are inferior …

ONE LOVE!
