Who Is African? 

Race is largely a social construct, therefore the only true race that exist if homo Sapien. Modern Man or homo sapien sapien is the only surviving sub-species of the homo Sapien, however within our sub-species we have different kinds, breeds, variations, and populations. If your your population, kind, breed or variation evolved outside of Africa than you’re “non-African”. Asians, Europeans, Americans, Native Americans, indigenous people of the oceanic, and indigenous Australians are all examples non-Africans who evolved outside of Africa .This is true despite non-Africans shared human history, despite their similarities to Africans, including skin color, or facial features, which are Mostly influenced by environmental factors, including all the mechanism of evolution, diet, and the disease process. As it relates to African Africans or Black people living in America, we evolved inside Africa, making us African. Our ancestors didn’t leave Africa during the first or second migrations out of Africa, but left as a result of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. These facts can be substantiated using proper methods and are not subject to religion, beliefs, oral traditions, or a failure to properly understand or process information. Neither, do these facts disrupt our legacy as Africans, so any claim or tradition that seeks to remove african people from our home and legacy is threat to the survival of African people worldwide. As long as we remember our legacy and what must be done to take back our power, our survival is secured! #selfpreservation
