The school tracts known as the “Portland African-American Baseline Essays” are another counterfactual abomination to have percolated into America’s anti-intellectual schooling system.
The Science Baseline Essay, in particular, claims that thousands of years ago, Egyptians-cum-blacks “flew in electroplated gold gliders, knew accurately the distance to the sun, and discovered the Theory of Evolution.”
According to Afrocentric academic Cheikh Anta Diop—a Senegalese with considerable celebrity in the US—Africans invented everything from Judaism, to engineering, to astronomy, including dialectical materialism (apparently Marxism is cause for inventor’s pride).
Paul Kersey adds:
The subject of the race of the Ancient Egyptians is “just too hot”—especially for my friends at the Nubian Bookstore who were paying cheap rent in a mall long past its expiration date. And don’t bother asking them why, if blacks had built the pyramids, their descendants couldn’t keep a J.C. Penney’s open.
"TV" was actually inspired by two Black men named Tee and Vee who stood in large boxes & acted out complicated story lines #HotepHistory
