and it never stops. I am so happy about that. So I’m here to inform you.
We already know things Black Africans invented but the more we discover
the more we add on to what we know. So here it is.. I’m pulling back
the curtains on the truth, the real truth because we must know it.
The world’s earliest known sports games go back to 5200 BC
Egypt. Sports are physical activities where you compete with
yourself or others. You can also compete with nature.
Sports help with the mind, body, spirit,strength, agility,
skill, speed, and alertness. Ancient Black Africans
got involved in sports because of their need. Things
such as long distance running for transportation,
fun, self defense, or religious purposes.
A religious sport like the Sympathic Magic wrestling
bouts in Southern Nigeria were done to promote the
growth of crops through higher powers. Amun, was
in charge of crops.
the sympathetic part is the Black Africans believing
all things in the world are linked by invisible bonds. The wrestling
bout was a devotional honoring Amun for creating these bonds.
The magic part was the belief that everything has a spiritual
force of its own.
Greeks borrowed the gods and goddesses from Egypt. Amun,
an Egyptian was renamed Zeus and Zeus become what they
called the top god.
Contact sports were well known in Africa. The first record of boxing was
found in hieroglyphics on the walls of Egyptian tombs and
stone slabs as well as vases. On the walls of the 3000
BC tombs of Egyptian walls were wrestling, boxing,
and free fighting.
Even the yoga of the pharaohs were studied and THEN started
in Greece. On many of the tombs of the princes of the
Amenemhet period, murals show combatants involved
in combat, wrestling, grappling, boxing, and stick
fighting. These are the earliest records of people being involved in
A boxer was face to face with a dancer doing a choreographed
drama such as ballet and is applauded for style, refinement, and
grace. Numerous African athletic events like boxing, wrestling started
in 4000 BC.
So see, even the Olympics was a Black African invention.
There’s so many Black African inventions the world don’t
know about. Thank God we at least know but hopefully
others will find out. If there was a show about Black
inventions that come on before and after BET and
everyday that would be cool. So whoever is watching
BET for music or whatever popular shows come on
they will immediately get this information in that
time frame. I’m thinking it’s a way to get more
attention to the show if there was one. Now
that we know BLACK Africans invented the
Olympics just like so many things, I’m still
on a journey to find out more. To be continued……
