Are you out of your ever lovin' mind 'potnah'? I associate with foreign Chinese students here at the college. They are very much indoctrinated with the Chinese curricula. Of all people, they would be the ones to know.
I have presented this innovative Afrocentric stuff to them just to see their reaction, as well as, to put them on notice of what is being disseminated in African American circles. They are not at all pleased. You see, Chinese are aware (and have been for some yrs now) of African Americans and their social issues and gripes; claiming to be AE. Chinese could care less but now they do, thanks to people like you.
By my informing them, and specifically naming names like, Dr. Winters, they now view Afrocentrists (unfortunately this resentment for, has spilled outside Afrocentrism and on to mainstream Blacks) as a pirana people, who prey on the historical accomplishments of others.
So you see, if you run into a Chinese who acts hostile towards you for no apparent reason, just know my informing non-whites of your activity partly contributed to this. My advice to you, stop buying buy chicken wings fried rice from them.
but even if not a thing about Blacks in ancient China is being taught or discussed it is not like the area both on main-land Asia and the islands doesn't /didn't have significant Black populations ancient and modern times..
It never had any SIGNIFICANT population. This is a Clyde Winters innovation and weak polemic. Showing an image of a token few "Blacks" does NOT constitute significance. Actually, it constitutes insignificance.
Where is this significant population today? Oh let me guess, the same thing that happened to all them other places where it is claimed Blacks were significant in population and were their antecedents; they just miraculously DISAPPEARED. Dude, come on.
Now I am not making the claim that these were necessarily continental Africans but exist they do/did.
If "Black" aint a continental African, then what the hell is it?! Stop playing these semantic games! Who are you kidding?! "Black" is the trojan horse Afrocentrists use to anchor themselves on to non-white historical and cultural shores.
I have personally met some of these folks both here in Japan and in their home-lands they exist.
Nah dude, what you met were dark skinned japs. Don't play yourself. Those are not "Black" people. The'yre dark skinned Japanese, no biggie.
All the above is/were a reality both ancient and modern the paintings are of Mongolian Blacks that existed to the north of China as late as the so-called European middle ages.
Dude, those pix derive from the trans-Saharan slave period. Give me a damn break! At the time, many muslims travelled to China to sell Negro slaves. How do you know, that "Black" man is not a muslim?
