    You stated that the world used to be Afrocentric and that is true. However, Africa as a continent has not been historically black.

    The Egyptian Empire for example was not composed of black Africans, although they are clearly depicted in some Egyptian paintings as slaves to the Egyptians, who would have looked more like what we would consider Arabs than black people.

    The only really notable African culture that comes to my mind was Ancient Ethiopia, which wasn't so much known for its cultural sophistication as for its massive wealth as a result of sitting on major natural resources.

    People too often get confused into thinking that Africa is the land of black people, when only the southern half was typically black.
