From Google,Africa came into existence in the late 17th century. The name was only initially used only to refer to the Northern parts of Africa. During this period colonialism was in practice, the Europeans roamed Africa and ruled over her people as slave masters. why??
This influenced the change of name from Alkebulan to Africa.
The word Africa was initiated by the Europeans and came into Western use through the Romans after the three Punic battles (264 BC to 146 BC) led by Publius Cornelius Scipio and the people of Carthage which is present-day Tunisia. Various theories suggest that the word Africa is derived from both a greek and Latin origin.
The Greek word ”Phrike ” meaning cold and horror, and the Latin word ”Aprica meaning sunny.
Yet, historians from several continents have argued against this propagated African name
According to another school of thought, the name Africa has always been in existence before the Romans invaded the land. (true fact!)
According to Motosoko Pheko, an African history scholar he writes that, ”The name Africa Alkebulan has been interpreted as, meaning mother of Nations or mother of mankind, but Africa is also one of the oldest name of names of this continent. ”
He further argues that the thought that claims that the name Africa never originated from the people and was created by the Romans is totally false.
He buttresses his point by indicating that the Greeks occupied Africa in 332 BC, followed by the Romans in 30 BC. The Greeks according to him, already knew Africa with the name Africa. He adds that the name Africa had various pronunciation due to Africas diversity in language.
It is estimated that there are over 6,000 languages in the world and over 3,000 of them are from Africa. In his essay, he writes ”Greeks had earlier called Africa Aphrike as they could not pronounce the existing name Af-Rui-ka ”.
Furthermore, some African historic scholars have suggested that the name Alkebulan is not in relation to the name Africa.
These scholars claim that the said name Alkebulan isn of an Arabic origin neither is the meaning. The word Alkebulan in Arabic, Al is a prefix leaving just kebulan as a word, and so far the word is non-existent in Arabic,
They claim.this is the kind of explanation you can get from Google about Africa,
Furthermore, Africa has been in existence since the world began and they have lived among themselves around their countries,
Physically and naturally speaking, no white man birthed any black man,the same God that created the white man also created the black man and the same rights He gave to the whites is also the same rights He gave to the blacks
The devil just possessed the white people into thinking and feeling superior to the black people, that is why they see black people as animals or donkeys for caring loads,that is why they enslaved us and robbed us of our pride and dignity.
They treated us like animals,they called us animals publicly, they called us gorillas and monkeys just because they think they
e better than us meanwhile they are just being possessed by the devil,no one is better than anyone,we are all human beings
Africa belongs to no one but to God alone, Africa does not belong to the white man that colonized it, Africa is not a slave to the white man that enslaved her!
Why they couldn colonize Ethiopia was because Ethiopia on their own had multitude of soldiers and weapons,even though they still tried but they couldn and they handed over,
White people did not create Africa, they have no right to rule over Africa,they have no right to colonize Africa,it is criminality and injustice,it is against the law to take something that does not belong to you, the people that colonized Africa has no right to do such thing to Africa because they didn create Africa,we don belong to them and we are not slaves to any continent!
