That was a good point made by someone earlier, who spoke about the cradle of humankind, being Africa.

And here's a thought: If Sumerian tablets are to be believed, every human being, in the entire world is not only African but South African.

I would say we are all Africans. Though there are some oddities in the world. Eg. Very few would call a white person born in India or China an Indian or Chinese. So would this also not apply to Africa?

You can’t ask things like that.

Overheard a white lady speaking to an “Asian” guy on a plane.

“So, where are you from?”

“Australia”

“Ok but I m...ok which part of Australia?”

The only time it's a problem what someone calls you is when you are not standing on property which you have agreed to the rules.

Yeah, try telling an African American that they're not American. LMAO.

Seriously, I am quite keen. How did you establish connection between sumerian civilization to South Africa?

Don't quote me I'm no expert Sumerologist.

But it's in the tablet known as.... which one is it... Atra Hasis or Enuma Elish. I think Atra Hasis. Talks about the Abzu and human beings, being hybrids of 'the gods' and one of the local species, presumably Denosovian/Neanderthall.

Apparently a worker race(the Adam) was genetically engineered to replace one of their races(the Agigi) to do the gold mining. These tablets all predate the Bible by a 1000 years.

Maybe 'the entire world' is a bit of an overstatement, since the Nephalim found the female Adam to be good ('te vath' meaning 'compatible'). So they intermarried - as Genesis confirms, the sons of the lofty ones came unto the daughters of men - and now there is everything in between, I guess.

I'm just trying to establish why people who were proudly "European" a few decades ago are now kicking and screaming to be called "Africans", a term they absolutely detested not long ago.
I was born in South Africa, so I am South African and African.
I am also an Éire citizen. So I am also Irish and European.

I was proudly South African up till the late 1990's, after which I became an embarrassed South African. I am moving back to Europe next year and will call myself a proud Irishman born in Africa.

Had to file an affidavit at police station few months ago.... the form had race as a requirement, so I wrote "human".

"Locals"? That's always used in a denigrating manner on here....same as "TIA" and "bleks". I'm just trying to establish why people who were proudly "European" a few decades ago are now kicking and screaming to be called "Africans", a term they absolutely detested not long ago.

I'm a 33 year old white male, have never called myself a European nor wanted to. So stop with this stupid argument that all white people fought to be called European and bow want to be called African.

I love my country, but it looks like some would want the patriotism forced out of white people.

And what about early 80's - were you not embarrassed to be south african ? Or were you fighting along with Helen Suzman?

Isn't it called creationist myth? My history knowledge doesn't extend that far so l stand corrected if wrong.
