SHAME, SHAME, SHAME! Feb. 25 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was actually given this book as proof I lost a bet. I didn't believe that something so racially and ethnically ignorant could be still published and respected. There is one small hole in the authors line of reasoning though, during the 15th-19th centuries the social and political literature written by Europeans were used only to justify to brutality and savage behavior of their own (during the Trans-Atlantic African Slave Trade). While the Europeans were on their brutal conquests of a land not their own, their only motivation was to suck Africa dry of all her resources. Very similarly Hitler used the same tactics in justifying the extermination and the forced slave labor of the Jewish populatin in Germany. If anyone of respectful academia wrote this book, then to he or she it would be obvious that prior to European colonization and domination of Africa many writers referred to the vast civilizations with great respect and amazement. Starting with the Greeks and ending with the first European spies and travelers to the continent. Civilizations as Kemet, Nubia, Kush, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Benin, Timbuktu and many others (that existed before the Europeans knew whether the world was round). Very disappointing.
