Most African Americans, have also Anglo Saxon, and other mixed bloodlines, especially when you go back at least 10 generations.

That's true right now but keep in mind that the earliest highly developed civilizations were happening everywhere but Europe, Africa had one of the greatest civilizations in Ancient Egypt, the Kingdom of Kush, Ancient Carthage, Aksumite Empire and Nubia. One of the oldest civilizations, if not the oldest was ancient Sumer which became Babylonia and now is modern Iraq. Ancient China was also highly civilized as well as the Mayan, Inca and Aztec civilizations.

These were highly advanced societies that aren't European, all the great inventions of that time were being invented in those areas, it's only when the Greeks and later the Roman Empire that the European peoples started to become the world's dominant people. Who knows who'll be "running the world" 1000 years from today.

My point is that every culture has added something to where we are at now, from algebra from the Arabs, gun powder from the Chinese, metal works from Africa, astronomy from the Mayans and so on.

We have advanced as a whole, not be seperate races...

That one was really just sort of a joke, although somewhat serious since it is somewhat true. Ofcourse, mankind had monumental achievements made by Romans, Egyptians, Mayans, etc. No doubt about that, and none of those civiliations were white. But in present time and since the dark ages (might have the period wrong), white people have essentially been in charge of the world and on cruise control

Ehh I guess. I figured the demographic population in that area has shifted along with new borders to the point that Romans could not be clearly distinguished as white. This isn't based on facts, but I thought the Roman population held a fair amount of Greek ancestry, and I don't consider Greeks to be white. However, I could be wrong. I realize the obvious geographical flaws, but this is just what was in my mind. Not trying to debate small inaccuracies, I was actually agreeing with you

Not trying to be a dick but how do you not consider Greeks white? They are Europeans.

Maybe they aren't like northern Europeans if that's what you mean be white but they are no doubt white, just like Spainards, Portuguese etc. Mediteranean types.

uhhhh not to be an azzhole bro, but Egyptians and Carthagians probably have similar bloodlines to Arabs and Berbers than they do to black people u see in the States.

Don't Hamilcar Barca and Hannibal and Hatsepshut and King Tut resemble somoene like Gaddafi more than 2 Chainz?

u kinda dug yourself into a hole on this one.

I think Arab falls under Caucasian.. not sure tho. Pakistanis and Persians do. (Hopefully not)

couple of points... Kush & Nubia were African societies, and Egypt was called Khemet before it was called egypt...


Another point that should be mentioned is that race (the terms white and black etc) is nothing more than a social construct... it doesn't really exist outside of what we make it out to be


The idea of who caucasian and who is not changes every few decades..

Hispanics are not black. A % of them (Hispanics) having African heritage somewhere along the line, sure, that's true. Then again, every single race on the entire planet has African heritage in their DNA. The cradle of human civilization as we know it originated on the African continent, so what's your point?
