Grandma went in for abdominal pain last night. Going to relieve mom so she can get some sleep.
I used to be self deprecating, but then I discovered so many people out there willing to depreciate me for free, so I outsourced it.
Did you know that the ancient name of Africa was Alkebulan?
"Among the many names Alkebu-lan ["mother of mankind" or "garden of eden"] was called are the following: "Ethiopia, Corphye, Ortegia, Libya and Africa - the latest of all. Alkebulan is the oldest and the only one of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians. Africa, the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today , was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks and Romans. "
Yes the continent got its name after Scipio Africanus…some ole white man from Greece/Rome. A lot of black historians don’t even like calling it Africa because of that fact.
Yeah but the names of places has always depended on what language is being used. The country China isn’t called “China” by those that live there, that’s the English word for it. The most common word that the Chinese use for their country is “Zhongguo”, and the native “americans” didn’t call North America “north america”. Australia is based on the Latin word for southern. So what’s your point?
