In Regards To Afrocentricity
in seems reasonable to say that it is wrong to replace one form of cultural-historical exclusion and centrism with another.
Its seems more approiate to find or create a term that describes the valid goals that afrocentrism contributes to the current distorted presentation of history and culture.
contributions of afrocentrism
that white europeans have via thier hegmony have presented a bais view of history and culture.
that black africans have and continue to make equal contibutions to history and culture.
specifically – africans have had sociaties and civilizations prior to thier contact with white europeans.
that egyptian civilization being geograhically located in africa, for most of its history including its founding was of and by black africans.
information excluded from offical historical texts indicating numerous african civilaztions not only within the african conitenit but also outside of it at numerous locations accross the planet.
on a sociological-physcholoical note
many critics say the much of afrocentrism is about building the self esteem of black africans esp dispora black africans such as african americans and carbeanian africans.
But why not?
to tell a whole population of distinct humans that you have no history and made no contribition to human civilzation prior to enslavement and colonization (even though evoluntiionary evidence indicates africa to be the birthplace of the first humans) and not expect it to effect thier self esteem is not only bais but ingnores the fact that this was intended.
Why shouldn’t a black african human feel pride in knowing that members of thier group have and continue to make contributions to civilization?
problems of afrocentrism

a more approiate to term that describes the valid goals that afrocentrism contributes to the current distorted presentation of history and culture.
the temporal emergence of the albinic/white population(via evolution) specifically the european variant which inevitable benifits from the accumulated contributions of various other human populations which preceded them.
