‘A colonial or European education…annihilates a peoples belief in their names, in their languages, in their environment, in their heritage of struggle, in their unity, in their capacities and ultimately in themselves. It makes them see their past as one wasteland of non-achievement and it makes them want to distance themselves from that wasteland. It makes them want to identify with that which is furthest removed from themselves’ ~ Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, (Decolonising the Mind)
why do white people do that shit though? like what in the actual fuck
I mean even if there wasn’t physical evidence of black Egyptians (which there is like a lot) if one has any concept of history they’d be able to come to the conclusion that the colonist wouldn’t want PoC to know that their ancestors built one of the greatest civiliazations in the history of humanity. They be too prideful.
Why do you think niggas never shut up about Cleopatra? Because they can make an argument that she was white. Let’s see them do that with King Tutankhamun (Tut). Y’all asses can’t. National Geographic called bullshit on it. Y’all don’t even bring him up.
