  1. I love reading,watching and listening to things going on over there during Black History month. As i love listening to Trevor and Gemma…they are very funny! But Trevor is the coolest… But was a bit disappointed when they dropped the slogan Love Black Music. Haven’t really listened like i normally did. But i love Ace and Vis and Rampage… I don’t get why Westwood is still on air considering his ratings are so low… I say check about Bang Radio 103.6fm ….love that station. Dnyce of Soul d out a friend of mine is amazing… And check out Sherry Dixon on Sundays….always informative… Dionne Grant…had a great show..this past Tuesday was her last show… But they still offer good programing… Happy Black History month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The first people in Britain were black people.

    The original british and irish were black, they were called the GRIMALDIES…the first people in Britain. It was only three thousand years ago that whiteman became the dominant type in an African-owned Europe. Before that it was Black-skinned African. For more than 48,000 years Black-skinned Africans would have been the only Europeans. Europe was discovered and mapped by Black skin Africans. Europe of yesterday, today and tomorrow will ever remain Africa’s heritage.

  3. I must say i really enjoyed reading what africanblackmilitant and verbs2010 submitted. I will look into this more.. I may not be from Europe but i love learning as much as i can about our people. But i am really surprised more Blacks didn’t post anything….on this topic…..hmmmmmm Are we they just not concerned? Or do they just not give a damn?? If so….sad and it says a lot about the lack of pride…. If a topic comes up about azz shakn….i bet we would get more response….

    Maybe there isn’t a lot of black people on this blog. Indeed it took me until yesterday till I found this blog. Also type “grimaldi man” -pizza into google, many articles which will tell you the truth.

  5. africanblackmilitant.. i must say that was a good read for me. Mainly because i had no idea about the first Europeans being Black. I will say it was a very interesting atrical and i thank you for th link. I think for me the saying knowledge is power….really is power. Have you ever thought about how we all are connected in some way. I mean slaves from Africa went everywere…and i mean everywhere.

  6. cont.. and i do remember seeing a show on PBS talking about if you did a DNA test of anyone…they all would have the gene called the African Gene. It’s in everyone even White people… So when i hear most people talking about how pure they are… well pure with Black Blood.lol! I just love it because so many people spend so much time trying to disprove us…but in all reality…they validate us even more. And don’t get me wrong i don’t need validating…just making a point. I could care less about what others think…but it’s cool…just to be able to have something to say when some get out of line… Oh my boss who is Jewish told me that Jews back in the day were Black… Well i knew that but i just let him think i didn’t know that. Because he was so proud of himself to be telling me something he thought i didn’t know.lol! Oh verbs2010 knew about that as well…very good read…thanks for the hook up…
