White Europeans have always tried to maintain that they are the sole providers of science & technology. They therefore want Africans to excuse their negative aspects as a burden we have to bear for electronics derivatives. Currently our tertiary institutions are based on the assumed-white ancient Greek model of antiquity. The Black African model of antiquity was replaced only in the 1820s following the death of King George III, the last black king of England. This replacement was done as an intellectual pursuit of the colonization of Africa; to justify the looting for the purpose of building the cities of Europe that was intended by classifying Black People as less than human, using the new idea of “Race”.
These machinations from Europe led to expeditions that executed the collapse of the Oyo Empire, that led to the transatlantic slave trade of Yourubas to South America. Colonization is not just about people getting up with guns to go and take over Africa. There was a lot of scholarly and intellectual investment in this new direction of “business”.
Genetically, all human beings are basically Black People. We used the term “Oyinbo” to denote albinos and this was the same term we used to denote white Europeans, because we knew that they are albinos.
If at all, Europe was the cradle of Science and Technology, we now know that the indigenes of Europe are descendants Black African migrants from this continent who crossed over through the present-day Strait of Gibraltar 45,000 years ago.
