Cheikh Anta Diop, in “Modern Falsification of History, :The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality, indicated:
“The problem of the most monstrous falsification in the history of humanity by modern historians would not have been presented better than Volney did. No one could have been abler than he to render justice to the black race by recognizing its role as mankind’s pioneer guide on the road to civilization. His conclusion should have ruled out the subsequent invention of a HYPOTHETICAL WHITE PHARONIC RACE that allegedly imported Egyptian civilization from Asia at the start of the historical period. In fact, that hypothesis is difficult to reconcile with the reality of the Sphinx which is the image of a Pharaoh having the head of a Black . That image is there for all to see; it can hardly be discounted as an atypical document nor relegated to the storeroom of a museum to remove it from the dangerous meditation of those susceptible of accepting factual evidence.
“Egyptologists were dumbfounded with admiration for the past grandeur and perfection then discovered . They gradually recognized it as the most ancient civilization that had engendered all others. But imperialism being what it is , it became increasingly inadmissible to continue to accept the theory evident until then –of a Negro Egypt. The birth of Egyptology was thus marked by the need to destroy the memory of a Negro Egypt at any cost and in all minds. Henceforth the common denominator of all the theses of the Egyptologists, their close relationship , and profound affinity, can be characterized as a desperate attempt to refute that opinion. Almost all Egyptologist stress its falsity as a matter of course. Usually these attempted refutations take the following form: Unable to detect any contradiction in the formal statements of the Ancients after an objective confrontation with total Egyptian reality , and consequently unable to disprove them, they either give them the silent treatment or reject them dogmatically and indignantly. … Next they try in vain TO FIND A WHITE ORIGIN FOR EGYPTIAN CIVILIZATION. … “
“EUROCENTRIC” “Eurocentric” … the term … the word … has nothing to do with ‘Europe’ being a “center”
… it was used by AfrIcan historians during the 20th century to describe the white racist supremacy writers – both “ancient” as discussed by Bernal and those currently writing in the 20th and 21st century who deny the existence of an “African-Egyptian-centered” civilization or the existence of African empires prior to the emergence of the Atlantic African slave trade 1400 – 1800s.
Also some used it to describe views opposite to those they (“Eurocentric – labeled “traditional” and “historic” – nterpretations of world and human history !) labelled “Afrocentric.”
Eurocentric white historians who propose or affirm A WHITE ORIGINAL RACE derived from A”WHITE EUROPEAN” HOMO ERECTUS and a “by natural selection ‘the origin of species by means of natural selection of the PRESERVATION OF OF ‘FAVORED RACES’ IN THE STRUGGLE FOR LIFE,”
and indicate “THE EMERGENCE OF A “BLACK RACE” OR “AFRICAN” RACE THOUSANDS OF YEARS AFTER THE EMERGENCE OF THAT “ORIGINAL WHITE RACE”
and that MODERN HUMANS, ANATOMICALLY MODERN HUMANS, WHO LOOK LIKE YOU AND ME AND OTHERS IN THE WORLD TODAY … ORIGINATED IN EUROPE,
IGNORING ALTOGETHER THE AUTHENTIC HISTORICAL FACT THAT THE “HUMAN RACE” ORIGINATED IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION OF AFRICA – BELOW “NORTHERN EGHYPT LABELLED “LOWER EGYPT – AND BELOW WHAT THEY HAVE LABELLED “UPPER NUBIA”
NEAR THE EQUATOR AND PHENOTYPICALLY (OBSERVED LOOK OR APPEARANCE) WERE “RACIAL ‘BLACK’”
AND WHO WERE THE “FIRST INHABITANTS OF “EURASIA” OR “EUROPE”
(NOTE: A GEOGRAHICAL ENTITY “EUROPE” DIDN’T EMERGE IN “WORLD HISTORY” UNTIL AFTER 80 A.D. DURING THE EXISTENCE OF “THE HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC” EMPIRE WHICH SENT “ROMAN CATHOLIC” MISSIONARIES TO “CIVILIZE” OR “CHRISTIANIZE”: IRELAND AND SCOTLAND WALES AND WHAT IS NOW GREAT BRITAIN, RUSSIA, AND GERMANY)

and that Greeks as founders of “Western civilization” had ancestors originating from Asia Minor now modern day Turkey as part of a “Eurocentric” … “Indo-Europen theory ”
… the “Indo-European Origin of Western Civilization” theory … not Africa.
All of whom seem ignorant of that historical fact that no “Europe” existed prior to … but after 800 A.D. when the people or populations of the so-called “European countries”: England, France, Russia, Ireland, Spain … became “civilized” or “Christianized” by Roman Catholic missionaries sent by the then existing Holy Roman Empire at that period of world history.
Prior to then they were “white” pagan tribes located in northeastern “Eurasia” … a subcontinent … and central and southern Eurasia following the Wurm II glacial period
50,000 years ago and not making tribal invasions of the Roman Empire until after 300 B.C. … in fact … historical fact … Romans made slaves of the “barbaric” tribes described as “white–hair-looking” .. meaning “blonde” … German and Celtic tribes from northeast and central “Eurasia.”
