No Black child should be confused over the demographic history of Kmt. It was an indigenous African federal nation with over 95% of its population being African before the 656bc invasions of the Assyrians, then Persians 525bc the Greeks 332bc the Romans 50bc then Arabs 641ad—-gutted and cannibalized that 4000+year old nation and civilization. Make sure our children know. There was never an “Egyptian” civilization. Kmt was the civilization before the White and Arab invasions that wiped out the Africans. Just like the Whites wiped out the indigenous populations of the western hemisphere, called indians. Tell our children: names are important. Very important.

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

Hââbre, the last generation

1. Ms. Djeneba : ” I used to like my scars; they were beautiful. We used to brag about them. But, now, in the city, it is definitely out of fashion.”

2. Mrs. Sinou : “I refuse to do it to my children. This will stay on my face only.”

3.Mr. Konabé : “Our parents did this not to get lost in life. When you went somewhere, you could not get lost.”

4. Mr. Lawal : “It is here in town that I am ‘nobody’. In the village, I am a noble; people bow down when they see my face! I am proud of that.”

5. Mr. Salbre : “ I do not want this for my children. We are the last generation “

6. Ms. Martine : “When I was 10 years, I asked for them. I wanted to be like my brothers and sisters, and to show that I am courageous. “ 

7. Mr. Guemi : “I already wear my identity card on my face. This is the reason why people did it : to recognize one another. But now, this is over. We can no more be recognized.”

why does this hurt my heart?

Hi! you have lovely locs. I am also freeforming (recently turned three months!) but i was wondering how you keep your hair moisturized? Also, how do your locs feel? I know that may sound like a crazy question but when I moisturize my hair, i feel the oils and whatnot in my hair but it also feels a bit rough.. Of course its suppose to feel rough because its coarse hair being matted together but i'm not sure if it is supposed to feel this way. is it dry with oils in it or is it moisturized? :\

Thank you :) I like to use coconut oil to moisterize. It’s also good to get it wet with water like when you’re in the shower when you can. My locs are rough but soft. Kind of like rope. I think it’s a feeling you have to get used to or maybe it feels different over time as they mature. The way you’re locs feel could be from different things.. the thickness of your locs, your hair texture, or the things you use in it. To be honest I’m still new to this too lol it’s really a learning experience. You should try to experiment with different things with what to use in your hair to see what works for you. I generally use natural ingredients.
