It is generally considered that the reason for having a Black history month is to highlight and include the achievements of Black or African peoples which ordinarily would, or appear to, be excluded from mainstream history as it is presently taught in our educational establishments.
This reasonable assumption is based on the observation of a mono-cultural taught perspective of history. A history which provides a simple but detailed recorded account of the interactions between one cultural group – Europeans – through their own lens as they experienced encounters with other different cultural groups. Eg… Africans, Asians etc…; and their own intra-cultural encounters amongst themselves and other Europeans.
This may well be seen as, and presented as, an objective and honest perspective. But it still remains essentially one view seen through one cultural lens only. Further, it can be taken or seen to imply, intentionally or otherwise (in the absence of any other than European cultural lenses) that this is truly a universal perspective. This would clearly be wrong and misleading.
However, I believe the whole premise of having a Black history month even if this argument of mono-cultural bias was to be accepted would still be fundamentally flawed and in error. Why?
Present day science has made a number of startling discoveries:
”…All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black sea…”
Scientists trace the origin of All blue-eyed people…Daily Mail (online) Feb, 2008
“…Scientists said yesterday that they have discovered a tiny genetic mutation that largely explains the first appearance of white skin in humans tens of thousands of years ago, a finding that helps solve one of biology’s most enduring mysteries and illuminates one of humanity’s greatest sources of strife.
The work suggests that the skin-whitening mutation occurred by chance in a single individual after the first human exodus from Africa, when all people were brown-skinned. That person’s offspring apparently thrived as humans moved northward into what is now Europe, helping to give rise to the lightest of the world’s races…”

Europeans Started To Evolve From Dark To White 8,000 years Ago, Study Reveals
These discoveries clearly suggest that the history of white people, Europeans as we understand them as a group, date back to a maximum of 10,000 years ONLY. This challenges and questions the notion of which Black presence should we really be celebrating in all or any Black History months and events? The Black presence or the Black presence post the arrival of the white presence?

Melanin and Darwinian Evolution Theory
This is an interesting TED talk given by Nina Jablonski (Anthropologist and Educator). One of the things she had to say about the importance of melanin and skin colour:
“….Jablonski got hooked on all things related to human skin. As a primatologist and paleobiologist, she wanted to understand why humans—alone among the primates—evolved to become the naked ape, and why skin comes in so many different hues and shades around the world. Once she started investigating the science of skin color, Jablonski was pulled into the sordid history of racism, and she saw how even great thinkers like Kant and Thomas Jefferson believed people with dark skin were innately inferior to light-skinned people like themselves…”
“…Lucy and the Absence of the Black Race in Origin of Humanity Theories…”
A better and more provocative short answer could be that these White filmmakers aren’t avoiding the subject of race, but instead they are unconsciously trying to retain the supremacy of Whiteness by attaching the White race to an alien super-sophisticated culture. That is to say, in the face of continuing and overwhelming evidence of other indigenous civilizations of people of color around the globe that were actually far advanced technologically, morally, and artistically than Whites were for thousands of years. Their only hope of re-establishing White supremacy in an origin of humanity theory is to have intelligent aliens seed earth and create Whites who become the measure of intelligence to which all other races must submit.
The REAL Lucy or “Luzia” !….
The Nubian, Mayan, Incan, Aboriginal, Amerindian and other known and as yet unknown civilizations that were once thought of as primitive by European Whites are now through less prejudicial anthropological research and evidence proving to have been far superior to the European civilizations at the same point in time and in some cases even today…”

It matters not who came first copper or gold we are all slave designed
If there was no such thing as the false ideology of white supremacy infecting everyone on our planet. Then YES! It would not matter who came first. Accepted. We All live on a prison planet. But white people now or historical have never naturally been a superior peoples to everyone else. In fact ALL the evidence points in the reverse direction! This is what the notion of white supremacy (racism) unfortunately attempts to hide.
Regardless, however you describe yourself, you buy into unsubstansiated nonsense like racism at your own peril!
“…A U.S. ecologist has claimed that humans are not from Earth but were put on the planet by aliens tens of thousands of years ago…”.
While such a claim has much evidence to support it. Which humans does it refer to? Certainly not the indigenous peoples – African and others – of this planet!

Very interesting article Where did ‘White Peoples’ come from?..This question has been asked/analyzed/ argued/debate all the days of my life, I can recall Today I am 68 years old, an African American Woman. All this commotion ‘raged’ among other African Americans! My position is, “..Scientific Research.” is unveiling Racism packaged in many ways/means the average African Americans to include myself NEVER imagine and/or knew of! Being classified in so-called Democratic Free America I expect anything and surprised by nothing! Passed down by ‘Word-of-mouth’ was historically the way African Americans/Indigenous Folks passed their history from one generation to another! Via these means, it was Explained to me that ‘White Peoples’ bore inferior genes, we’re nasty as hell, and carried all kinds of diseases and germs! I looked upon this statement as ‘..Rascism’ in reverse! Then as a School Child, told stories about the Native Americans Holocaust caused by ‘White Peoples’ to include the ‘giving of blankets by ‘White Peoples’ that were ‘sneaky endeavor’ infested with diseases that killed innocent millions! Through the years I have read many books dealing with ‘atrocities’ committed by White Peoples such as; Lynchings, Jewish Murder Camps, Poor White Slaves that died daily in cotton/sugar cane fields etc., Rapes-at-will African American Women Children and Pets, Tortures, White Gang Violence, Civil War ‘Shocks’ how under the Leader of a White General of course freed black men slaves and put them in the military, thus as Soldiers were taken back to many Old Deep South Plantations and made by Military Force to kill White Women and their Children to include all African American Servants/Slaves to include burning down their food storages and burning down the old Southern Plantations While the ‘White Men Folks’ were Away Fighting for Their White America! I Never departed my residences throughout my lifetime without going through trials, tribulations and abuses of some kind of Racism! I can go on and on telling stories after stories about African American Racist Experiences I witnessed the new ‘Mental Enslavement’ by custom called being in Worship and it’s Psychologies of Christianity to a White Christ Murde on a Cross but Preached/Pimped to African Americans as “…He (Christ) gave his Life to save me; the nigga, whore, b-word, uppity, wenches, slugs etc..”?? It always stimulated my brain as to ‘how’ Christ nailed himself on the cross, switched his obvious Murder into a new ‘semantical wording’ called Crucification for the ‘Good’ of our sufferings!?!? Anyways.what do you think of ALL-OF-THIS…Arteyhviah
There is much sacredakasha that has taken place on this planet that has never been told or revealed to us. But equally too, as your statement expresses, there is much that has been observed and experienced in suffering by African (Black) and peoples of colour. Much of this experience of suffering would seem or appear to have come directly from the actions and behaviour of white (European originated) peoples.
Whilst historically recorded evidence just over the last 500 years can show this to be true. Its not the whole story. which is what the collected accounts in the different but related posts of this Origins blog reveals.
Yes, white people may be a recent phenomenon of the last 10,000 years – Which is contrary to what Western science would have everyone else schooled on the planet believe. But they ARE NOT A SEPARATE RACE and indeed have a part African human origin as well.
Now to fully comprehend and understand this much unlearning of what we have been taught (indoctrinated to believe) and much re-learning of not just new Science/Factual based information, but Metaphysical and Spiritual based information as well, needs to take place.
Fortunately, this is what the very upto date information, I continue to gather, in this blog provides!
Dark Light Consciousness with Dr. Edward Bruce Bynum
…This new perspective allows us to view the history of dream interpretation and its psychosomatic implications from Africa, Asia, Europe and Ancient America in a wider context. It documents that the workings of the dynamic unconscious on dreams and symptom production were known to the Kemetic Egyptians of 3000 BCE and that they consciously employed it in their clinical and religious work. They referred to it as the all black underworld of the Amenta (King, 1990) and the primeval waters of NUN (Hournung, 1986). They literally invented biological psychiatry and were aware of the dynamics of the neuromelanin nerve tract and light (King, 1990). Ages later, some West African civilizations, especially the Yoruba, formalized a variant of the dynamic unconscious in philosophy and medicine centuries before Freud (Morakinyo, 1983). Other branches of the human family such as Native Americans also had strikingly similar ideas…”

Let’s be honest now, whites are descendant from the Dravidian albinos of India. Look at the genes they are listing, albino genes. If we look deeper, at their languages, there is a connection between the modern European languages and those of India.
To say this would be a superficial analysis based solely on physical evidence of appearance. It’s highly speculative and the available evidence just doesn’t stand up. It’s an attempt to shoehorn evidence into some simple Earth based evolution model Plus you ignore evidence of giants, ETs, DNA and Melanin. Most of which is covered in other posts here… These are the areas we need to be more honest about..
Please list the genes that accounts for the white skin of Europeans. We’ll take it from there.
When did I ignore evidence of the above mentioned? Please provide the genes that accounts for white skin in modern Europeans.
Your question has already been covered in this very post. There is even a video explanation on the discovery of such genes. If you genuinely wish to share any additional knowledge then, by all means do so. But please Remember, I don’t have to provide answers for you simply because you demand I do ! …If you disagree with what I have presented here then that is fine with me… 🙂
