Scientists have found that New Guinea is one of the few places on Earth where agriculture developed independently. Evidence of taro and banana cultivation has been discovered at the site of Kuk, indicating the emergence of agriculture approximately 6,500 years ago.
Nubia and Egypt are up there, too: http://wysinger.homestead.com/nubiandiet.html

Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.
Interesting fact: Many African ethnic groups, kingdoms, and states were referred to as ‘countries’ before the rise of colonial powers throughout Africa. They were okay as ‘countries’ when slaves and other goods were being traded. You’ll hear of the Ebo country, Benin Country, Whydah Country and so on when reading pre-1850 writing. If you label a kingdom or a state a ‘tribe’ this those what is described above but also implies there was no major or important political organisation. ‘Tribe’ made/makes indigenous African states and ethnic affiliations sound petty and unimportant. Imagine calling the Edo or Songhai people a tribe when their empires have wielded more power than most of the world ever has? But why would you call them countries when you’re trying to impose your own country on them?
In all honesty, all cultures have tribes, even the Germans have tribes- we’re all from some sort of tribe. The Bible lists its tribes. The word tribe shouldn’t even be looked down on. Tribes ARE civilization. The racist, immoral concept of someone who’s from a ‘tribe’ not being important enough to care about IN A FREAKIN’ GENOCIDE is so evil, that if an atheist saw such evil in its true form, he or she would have to believe that there’s a God. Cuz that evil is not from a human being. When some genocidal civil war happens in some other country that isn’t African, it’s treated like a tragedy…yet with a civil war in an African country, racist SCUM OF THE EARTH will say, “They are (worst degrading ever), this is their nature.” Racists, beware. You will be hated, very soon, by the whole world. The truth of you evil ‘things’ will come out. The Zulu, to God, are as worthy as anyone else on earth. He cares not about your vanity in technology, advances in science, and intellect. He is GREATER THAN YOU WILL EVER BE. Burn.

Also, http://www.theroot.com/articles/world/2013/10/south_africas_coloreds_identify_most_with_blacks_in_the_us.html They are trying to get Africans to hate each other. They like it when a Yoruban sees himself better than a Mende. They love the civil wars. I hope Africa realizes it.
Fact all should know: DO NOT EVER USE THE WORD AFRIKAN (in referring to Africans). http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2321236/Orania-Whites-town-South-Africa-Afrikaners-dream-building-state.html Afrikaners say Africa was nothing and the ‘white man’ saved Africa. They do that blacks can’t govern themselves b/s and want Apartheid back. They are the KKK in Africa. ~African genocide, Maafa, still at work~
Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY!
Just needs to be stated again!
“Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”
