'the greatest single crime in the world'
Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust: “The Middle Passage. Our Holocaust. It is our holocaust because this is a holocaust that started 500 years ago and it is not over. We do not start our count at 6 million, we start counting at 60 million, and we have just began to count.
Not to take anything from the German and the European Holocaust. Whether the number was 6 or 60 million, even if it was wrong. But it was a problem started in Europe by Europeans that should have been resolved in Europe and Europeans.
There can be no comparisons between this tragedy and our tragedy which was the greatest crime in the history of the world. why haven’t we memorialized our dead? It was almost like the crime of not burying them.
This system has its roots in the Columbus Era and produced European world domination, Dr. John Henrik Clarke In Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust, provides an overall analysis of a period of history that has been systematically falsified and hidden from the serious scrutiny of African-centred scholars and researchers and other committed individuals.
Clarke highlights the concepts that are keys to unveiling that truth about African history and destroying the “Big Lies” about white supremacy. Dr. Clarke challenges the traditional views of African Civilizations and its strength and weaknesses before the enslavement and colonialism periods.
The Eurocentric view of Columbus as a “discovered” and states that he set in motion the genocidal process and renewed western racism, is greatly challenged. Professor Clarke points out that Columbus set in motion, political forces that established a global system of exploitation.
Review - “ENLIGHTENING! INFORMATIVE! EMPOWERING! EVERYTHING A HISTORY BOOK SHOULD BE. I now understand why Dr. Clarke is mandatory reading for any person of African descent engaging in heritage learning.
Dr. Clarke has examined this colossal dehumanizing of a people with minute detail, step by step and his chronicles reveal that the African Holocaust was 'the greatest single crime in the world' committed against a people. Nothing else can match this genocide and destruction.”
