    West Africans are not Bantus. It's the Southern Africans who speak "Bantu" language. Those Blacks from America are negroes of Western Africa and they claim Egypt because they want to feel superior that they had a great civilization. The truth is, West Africa didn't had a great civilization throughout the history and due to that they are desperate for praise.

    Black supremacists say, people of Nile Valley civilization are Negroes. It's bullshiit. Actually, the people of Egyptian civilization were an admixture of Caucasian and East African. And East Africans aren't the blacks of America.

    Because blacks have no culture or history so they try to steal it from Egyptians and other non-blacks.

    Its because they are lost. If u dont know where you come from, then u dont know where you're going. These people where stripped of their language and culture. They are still searching. Its sad really.

    The west Africans did not speak Bantu languages so calling west Africans "Bantu" is wrong. Bantu languages are spoken in the area on this map https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1...

    They just claim everything, they're hoping to lucky like the Mexican Indios did ... you know some people actual think Mexicans are Latins.

  • Black Americans are mostly descended from West Africa around present day Gambia and Senegal. Bantu are those people from Central Africa who speak Ntu. Suggesting that Black Americans are descended from Bantu shows the same degree of ignorance as suggesting they are Egyptian.

    Does it really even matter? It's not like anybody else ever claimed that a specific family heritage existed when it didn't right? Can you say Elizabeth Warren?

    Why do Social Darwinists like you think it is so important? Do you feel genetically inferior to black Americans?
