As we should all know history has been changed and White washed to discredit people of African descent and keep you blind to our historical achievements. Astronomy is no different. Many different Ancient African Cultures had discoveries that the world still relies on today. In ancient Kemet they charted the movement of the Sun and constellations along with the cycles of the Moon.They divided a year into 12 parts and developed a calendar system that was yearlong containing 365 1/4 days in it like we use today, Romans and Greeks just named them and tried to hide the fact that they got it from Africans. In Kemet They even Created Clocks using water and eventually developed a Sun dial. 

Your whole life I’m sure you heard about how Galileo studied the stars, Copernicus created the theory of the world being round, and the Roman calendar, but as @Oba_Tayo stated once stated in a post, the Truth is “they stole many of their theories from ancient African Cultures that made these discoveries many years before they were even alive. ” The Dogon people of Mali knew of Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s moons, The Milky Way, long before any culture outside of Africa. Scientist throughout history have been so baffled by Africans advanced Knowledge in these fields that they credit Aliens with creation of Structures such as pyramids and Stonehenge before they do Africans. They only talk about the Stonehenge in Europe but there is older Stonehenge that still stands in Kenya and Sudan (Nubia) that was used as a calendar. 

Be Knowledeable and appreciate your True History and realize how Great you are and always have been. SanCopha!

Omari Grant, 11, of Henry County, Ga., (pictured) said that he was terrified after a police officer pulled a gun on him while he and his friends were building a tree fort in their neighborhood, WSB-TV 2 reports.
Grant, a 5th grade student, says he and his friends often play in the wooded area behind his home, but a neighbor in his subdivision called the cops to complain about their activities. What exactly happened that lead up to the cop allegedly pulling the gun on the boy is not clear, but Grant said he followed the cop’s orders.
“I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Grant recalled.
Janice Baptiste, the boy’s mother, filed an excessive force complaint with the department. “So my son was of course traumatized by that,” she said.
A WSB-TV reporter spoke to Edgar Dillard, whose wife, according to 911 records, called the cops to complain about the boys “chopping off tree limbs.” Dillard said he was shocked that a gun was pulled on the child to deal with what he believed as a safety issue.
“There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment,” Dillard said.
No arrests were made, but the department is now investigating the officer’s actions.
“If it was justified then we’ll deal with it, if it wasn’t we’ll address it as well,” said Sgt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department.
Grant said maybe he and his friends should not have been in the trees that day, but was still shocked that he needed a gun pointed at him to learn his lesson.




FTP over and over again we hear sh*t like this!  Just watch….. something is going to happen
