I realized that, like I always knew it, certain women won’t take disrespect for granted.  You might perceive it as a joke and within her, her whole ego’s shook and then that’s where she’ll start spazzing on you for your douchey attitude.

Our Rheinland

During the first World War the French government forced African men - many coming from Senegal or Cameroon - from their colonies to fight for the French army in the Rheinland. ​In 1919, there were between 25,000 and 40,000 African soldiers from the colonies based in the Rhineland. After Germany’s defeat, some of the soldiers stayed and founded families. Their lives, which were already scarred by discrimination and racism were threatened existentially when Hitler and the Nazi-Party seized power. In 1937 the so called Commission Number 3 was instated which had the secret order to sterilise all so called “Rheinlandbastards”, a derogatory term used for the offsprings of white German women and African men. Local officials reported the “Rheinlandbastards” living under their jurisdiction and with their help a vast number of children were forcefully sterilised or disappeared forever. In “Mein Kampf” Hitler referred to them as contaminators of the white race “by Negro blood on the Rhine in the heart of Europe.” RHEINLAND tells the story of the so called “Rheinlandbastards” through the eyes of 12-year-old Joachim, the son of the Senegalese Awa and the German Annemarie. Joachim is forced to deal with his identity when the village his family lives in becomes more and more hostile.

We don’t need to replace our history with myths to validate ourselves and our cultures. Keep it real.

This is literally why I get super annoyed with all those ridiculous ancient egypt memes like pls shut the fuck up and stop using dead people in your bs respectability politics

She just forgot to add Northern Sudan as home to Nubians in addition to southern Egypt. Also Nubians still exist to this day as a distinct linguistic and cultural group, so it’s more appropriate to speak of us as contemporary, living and breathing people facing the same modern human condition, rather than just reduce us to this absurdly mythologized existence. Sure we have this great and often overlooked history but TODAY our communities struggle with poverty, racism, land thefts, marginalization, political instability. But they also go on living just like everybody else. Africa’s history is more than just ancient Egypt and Nubia. There’s Axum, the kingdoms of Mali, the Funj Sultunates in what is now Darfur, the various Amazigh kingdoms and dynasties of North Africa, the Yoruba, Hausa and Ibo states, empire of Songhai, empire of Ashanti to mention a few .

Thanks for the added info :)!!!!

Right that the region of Nubia is covered by Egypt and Sudan but I also realize that habeshas from Ethiopia or people from other regions from Africa calling themselves Nubian, has it a new connotation?

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

A loner that loneliness itself can’t acknowledge in the league of loners…

Life is lonely and incomplete…

You just listen to a song and it brings back memories, memories deep enough to make you feel nostalgic about a certain era or a short period of time located in the past. You’re so lost in the flow of instrumentation and words that your mind is taken away back in time. And it just affect your mood in an indescribable manner.

Music is just too powerful.
