: Africa is the ancestral homeland of ALL humans. YUP. We are ALL African! SOOOOO, why don't we all move to Africa & strip what little's been "given" to the natives from them & continue doing what the imperialists did??? My ancestors probably left long ago because of some horrible ruler of some tribe, & I'm INCREDIBLY bitter about this.
: I am beginning to realize that this idea of humans settling down in one place & claiming that land for themselves, fighting for it, etc. is a relatively new idea for man. Our ancestors were migratory, originally - they continued with their "cultures" & "customs" wherever they went, shaping those cultures & customs to better fit their new environments.
xxx Has "ancestral homeland" ever been a good "reason" to hurt, kill, etc. more human beings who just so *happen* to live there at that moment?... I think ancient man was probably too concerned about surviving the present to worry too much about his ancestors' past... & now his descendents think they will make a killing off the future by ignoring the present in the name of the past.
