    My answer would be maybe more of what we need today: black/African unity and the keeping of black/African culture. To my understanding, some of it was divide and conquer but I'm not a history buff so I guess someone else can elaborate on that. Africans had unity and voodoo and took over Haiti

    Africa wasn't conquered easily. The belief that it was shows a complete lack of understanding of history and geography.

    Exactly, Africa was the LAST continent evil white crackas went and did their damage. Africans also underestimated the extreme capacity of evil white men have.

    I am ignorant and that's why I asked.

    ^and I know Africa isn't a country; I should have specifically typed West African and other(Black) Nations in Africa.

    Put it like this. The conquering of Black Africa went a lot like the conquering of the Americas. The Europeans came into the area, made nice with the locals at first, then once they got the foothold they wanted they turned on the natives and conquered with superior firepower. It wasn't a quick thing though, and as in other cases all over the globe the European success had as much to do with their treachery as anything else.

    i think the term "easily" is being used here loosely. there's also a fair amount of "the unstoppable power of ancient Africa" notions floating around on this forum that may contribute

    ah, the correct answer

    technically, i do not think this is true, although it might depend on what you mean by "did their damage"

    good one... This is an Ancient Egyptian victory. The Hyskos (white ppl) were kicked out of Egypt but later invaded it and stole Egyptian knowledge. The Hyksos became the modern day Jews. They were able to conquer because it was already preordained for them to rule for a season and they serve an evil entity.
