  • Certainly it seems that way right now. The first humans probably came from Ethiopia, and migrated throughout the world. There are a pair of scientists that are challenging that, and arguing that Asia is the first place, but they are certainly in the minority, and most archaeologists agree that Africa is the beginning.

    • This one. Yeah. Supposedly we started walkiing on 2 legs here : ))
      Sadly Ethiopia have a lot of misery now.

    • Show All
    • Water, food, basic condiitions and education. Problems that could already been solved years a go.

    • @OrangeBoy true, i was thrown off by the word misery as if there was like a high suicide rate there or something. i'm going to visit this summer so i guess i'll find out lol

  • Yes. The first people originated in Africa.
    But one thing I can never comprehend is the fact that some people think that they should be proud of being a particular race. You don't choose your race. Any accomplishments within your race still helps humanity collectively, anyway.

  • It is true that's where the first humans evolved from our ancestors. Humans than spread out from there on across the globe evolving into different races to best suite their environments.

  • It's not "true". the statement is well supported by a lot of evidence, but very little is know with a great degree of certainty in science. And TBH you look a bit old for me so I don't find you attractive or unattractive

  • I've heard that Ghanian Jollof gives you terrible wind 💨💨💨

    You should be proud to be dark-skinned. I am proud to be white.

    Dr Henry Gates makes some interesting theories about Africa. He says that the first universities were established in Africa and makes various points about Africans being the first recorded humans on earth. I haven't read everything he has published but, as yet, I am not entirely convinced.
