What's really irritating to me is African Gods are called "African mythologies." If they were never brought here, they would believe in the African Gods and they were basically forced to convert to Christianity which was stolen from Auset and Heru. Why isn't Christianity called a mythology when its story was basically stolen from religons before it? It saddens me that African Americans believe in a white Jesus when they have we have our own Gods that make so much more sense.

Well, actually. Although attempts at converting blacks slaves and native Americans in the United States was tried by all the major colonies it was largely unsuccessful. Most of the black people actually can into Christianity after they were freed as slaves and their numbers continued to rise well into the 30's and early 50's along with the sense of an equal black family. However, then the entirety of black society in America fell apart and with it took the traditional black family once democrats started using victimization alto get minorities to the polls in the 80's and 90's. And it continues on to today.
Not to mention, Traditional African religion has thousands if not hundreds of thousands of different sects and... well... religions. Unlike Europe which solely had Christianity (pretty much) after the forming of the nations Africa had to diverse a number of religions to be carried over as a common belief. However you can still see African gods coming in to play if you research some Caribbean forms of Christianity where "voodoo" and "spirits" or "ghosts" play a large role in day to day practice, even though not prescribed by the Bible.
Hope that sums it up for ya!0
