Sub-Saharan Africa - Wikipedia

Nothing in this article suggests that South Africa is excluded from the designation.

How is a geographical designation racist? Sub-Saharan literally means below the Sahara Desert.

The UN uses the term to designate the region for statistical purposes. Is the UN racist?
Words like “sub-Saharan Africa” are GOOD words to use if you are talking about white power and the world it has created (colonialism, racism, racialized identities, etc)

But they are TERRIBLE terms to use, as tools of thought.

It draws a big fat line across Africa based on race. It makes the most diverse part of the world into undifferentiated blob.

  • Are Italy and Greece “sub-Nordic” ?
  • Are the U.S. and Mexico “sub-Canadian”?
  • Is Latin America sub-Anglo-America?
Who the hell thinks up this shit?

Black folks are on both sides of the Sahara as well. There are millions of blacks who live all across the Sahara, as their ancestors have lived for thousands of years.

When whites use the terms “Sub Saharan” Africa they are mostly referring to stereotypical phenotypes associated with Black people. The fault with this reasoning is that there is no single Black phenotype in Africa.

Even within certain African ethnic groups there is genetic diversity which dictates hair textures and types, eye color, nose shape, skin tone, yet it's still Blackness.

OK. "Sub-Saharan Africa" can mean a region populated overwhelmingly by blacks which to today has never reached any rudimentary form of civilization or accomplishment if you wish.

It's 2019 and in 2 months it will be 2020. It's time to end beliefs from the 1700's.This is from Henry Louis Gates. You know, the guy you racists love to quote in order to talk about black slaveowners.

Almost all of the sub-Saharan continent was in the paleolithic age before colonization.
So....you've never heard of the kingdoms of Ghana and Mali? Built their civilizations on the gold-salt trade routes.

I've heard of them, but seen little to suggest anything more a than rudimentary chiefdoms.

OK. Just a question. So how do you explain all the books written by European and African scholars that say the opposite ? And that Africa was the birth place of civilization.

Because South Africa was not considered sub Saharan and countries above the Sahara was. Africans do not like the term and Africans consider it racist. That's the only opinion on this matter that has merit.

What you think doesn't matter. What I think doesn't matter. Your one article is irrelevant. Africans say the term is racist and divisive.
What matters is the actual meaning if the term.
Saying sub saharan in no way implies a person thinks an entire race is superior to another.
Maybe those Africans you speak of should learn to read.

They traded gold for salt? No wonder they disappeared.

  • Are Italy and Greece “sub-Nordic” ? -- Yes
  • Are the U.S. and Mexico “sub-Canadian”? -- Yes
  • Is Latin America sub-Anglo-America ? -- No, it would be sub-North American.

Anglo, would be a geographic designation if it were referring to the British Isles (Angla being Latin for England). But, if you're using it to describe North America, then you're implying that North America is wholly or mostly peopled with persons of British ancestory (a false implication).

The Sahara is a geographical location and in no ways implies ethnicity.

All Africans, including Super-Saharan Africans? Or specific Africans. Have you taken a poll?

White boys can't take it when their lies get shown to them.
Well, the white-boys who 'made up' Latin are the Romans and they're long gone.

The Sub and Super Saharan parts of Africa have been divided by climate and the virtually unpopulated Saharan Desert since before 3500 BCE. There were very few Klan members around 5500-years-ago.

The Sahara Desert is the size of the United States. That is a lot of real estate to traverse through and boast about. Besides....Egypt ph uked with the Jews and God put a whammy on them. Having as many warnings as they did from God through Moses, they were incredibly stupid. Almost special needs. You don't want to be associated with that. Its to messy. Egypt today still bears the scars of that time. Empires come and go...Our time will come. Perhaps it is now.

Given all we know of Africa, id say youre reading books that are clearly wrong. Africa has always been behind the rest of the world, technologically speaking. Its simply a fact.
