 AFRICAN BY NATURE® presents Open Our Eyes: African People Are Incapable Of Migration
Inasmuch as African people, on the continent and throughout the Diaspora, continue to be intellectually and academically thought of as being static and incapable of migration, as well as intellectually and academically incapable of scientific and technological accomplishments, without assistance, of course, the social construct of racism shall continue to prevail.
As I stated earlier, to prove that African people are incapable of migrating from Africa to Europe; or from Africa to Asia, some scholars overlook the facts regarding historical migrations by African people altogether.

Simon and his people were descendants of Put (Phut), the third son of Ham, the ancestral father of Africans.
The distortion of African history evolved in a number of ways: Through deliberate omissions and twisting of history; through the pictorial portrayal of biblical people as ethnically different from what they really were — (African and African-Asiatic) and through the failure of scholars and writers to acknowledge these distortions when confronted with the facts.
There are not very many people who at some time or another have not experienced pain, hurt, shame, or disgrace, as a result of a person or group of persons’ careless and sometimes deliberate use of an unbridled tongue.

 BU Libraries | Research Guide: Peoples and Cultures of Africa
People in Africa cannot be described as being members of "tribes" or speaking "dialects" any more than a European could be described as belonging to the French "tribe", or speaking the German "dialect".
Just as the study of African literature is not simply the study of folklore, the study of African music, art, and other cultural expressions is not the just study of ethnomusicology, primitive art, etc. Nor is popular culture in Africa simply the importation of Western entertainment along with Western technology.
This is not entirely the case, but accurate analysis of African art or not, this concept should not in anyway detract from the recognition of African art as a real and vibrant expression of ideas and aesthetics.
