I am going to start by saying "if the proof matches the truth, then the truth I speak that." The title of the book is perfect because it shows that those who falsified history and sold this lie to the world, are mad as though they have a vested interest in keeping the lie going, which is true. All one need to do is study DNA, whether it be mitochondrial, or the Y chromosome and this will shut down all of the critics who think thorough research is clicking a button and reading a few paragraphs on Wikipedia. When I read( seriously study them more like) books, I research the books that are in the footnotes and bibliography, and then I do my own research and I leave the emotional state out of it. Many believe that the epistemology of one group of people is the greatest, and no other(s) can speak on past realities without having validation from the group mentioned above. That to me, and anyone with a functioning brain can see that. Something major is happening here. I don't feed into the biases of individuals and groups who have developed a great privilege from the lies created by their forebears; I just follow the breads, and they always lead back to the origin(s). The book is great, the author is on point, and the one star critics are full of waste, and they are mad that the world is waking up after suffering from somnambulism. A lie can't live forever, all on need to do is chip away at that lies foundation.

To the pc critic who claims that the Egyptians spoke a semetic language. The first dynasty builders of the Old Kingdom were indeed observed as being Hamitics who spoke a Nubian-Sudanic language. As it was recorded and known, the Black Egyptians(Kemetans) allowed different ethnic groups or races to enter their civilization as settlers or ppl who were coming to learn. Egypt doing the later part of the Middle Kingdom, was under the influence of outsiders such as, Hyksos, Assyrians, Jews, Greeks, Romans, etc. who, when were at a position of either being a Pharoah(for a short time) or having the same power of influence, changed what was necessary to fit their world-view, such was the case with whatever non-Egyptian(emphasis) language through out each period. Indeed, it is useless to argue or debate with ppl who dissect in favor of their own erroneous means.

The negetive reviews of this particular book, further supports what Mr. Asante has indeed proven or at least, has shed some light on. Eurocentrist cannot make up their mind, when it was proven that the original Egyptians were Hamitic, all of sudden Hamtics can no longer be negro's or Negroid because, then, Eurocentrist would have to admit to being influenced by negro's. Whatever gives black ppl worldwide, empowerment, must some how be trampled under the feet of Eurocentrist.

So many examples: The great walls of Zimbabwe, white scholars claimed they were the builders,lmao!, The civilizations of Nubia, again white scholars claim they were the builders, West African civilizations, white scholars claim that they civilized these empires, The Swahili States, white scholars claim that, that was the work of Arabs, negro's couldnt have built it, etc.

See the pattern of racial neurosis, and the pre-assert that no one white will agree with what I have written, considering that I am not a racist indiviudual, which, in the end when analyzing this subject, one can indeed arrive at the view of eurocentrist as being very vain and self-misguided.

This is a sad case of Eurocentrist and supporters not being able to take their own medicine, and, as a result, uprooting the foundation of logical discourse in view of rationality, objectively speaking, eurocentrist, by refuting was is easily arrived at, reference wise, in the end, supports the claims of this book.

This is a great book.It deals the fear of what he calls, the agency of africans(The ability of africans to create society,community, culture and civilization.)Why does the critics have such a fear of this? Because most of them want to keep alive a myth that has been told for years.He deals with the fact most historians like to take egypt out of africa and place it in the near east In fact, a lot of very good books I have read on the bible and the ancient near east have done just that.There Is also a fear of the fact that Egypt had a very powerful influence on greek culture.I have read many books that try to refute this fact, but not one of them have produced a reasonable argument but have instead show true racist fears.A lot of people(By this I mean educated people) will know the truth, but will tell a lie because It is expediant to do so.The ancient greeks also said the egyptains were black now, how can you, who were not there, change that ? There Is nothing to fear of truth In fact, It will bring all people (regardless of their race) together.The time Is at hand for the truth that will place all races and culture in their proper place.This book Is one of those platforms by which this will be accomphished.Buy It! You won't be sorry.
