24577, thats blatant thievery
Posted by Nubia, Wed May-31-00 07:49 AM
For you to say that observing the genius of one culture than making it your own and not giving recognition, but pretending as if you have unearthed these jewels within your own culture... that's just plain and blatant theft!!!

And once again you are correct I am making generalizations so I will be a little more specific

Much of the
Art
Language
Symbolism
Architecture
Philosophy
Civilization structure
Government structure
Mythology

Among other things were all apart of the stolen legacy

It is also true that much of what they stole was distorted and misconstrued
But still there were many things that stood out and were obviously taken from Africa withOUT any recognition given
