DNA is the greatest evidence connecting the dead to the living, As lina<3 explains it.
There is great desperation among egros to portray themselves as advance as the (especially followers of NOI) ancients like Romans, Greeks, Persians, Babylonians, India, China, even the Mayans because riding coat tails isn't prestigious. The fact of the matter is the egros are transformed assimilates of societies under the berbers, Semites, (levants & arabs), persians, egyptians & western europeans into the world of academics, written language, mechanics, science, biology, astronomy, mathematics, & civilize society.
There would not have been numerous bushmen kingdom or empires across sub sahara africa living in huts till the 19th century A.D.. They would have been the ruling class in north africa, not the Berbers or Egyptians, who's spiritual beliefs are ancestral worship, shamanic voodooism, or witch craft. The Nubians could only produce a very small scale from bricks without the passage ways & hieroglyphs. No doubt that they are 1 of many slave groups that provided the physical labor force in the construction of the Pharaohs Pyramid.
Most of those captured by slave raiding tribes & traded in slave ports were Sub Saharan or south of Sahara hunter gathering warrior tribes . Most were Igbo hunter gathering warrior tribes. A mural in the tomb of setti depicts how egyptians sees libyans (berbers) as white/bidanes, levants as beige & egyptians as brown. If the sub saharans had a written language, calendar, hieroglyphs, ink, paper, or bronze chisel & hammer, they could have documented dynasty's & wars fought among rival tribes since BC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Gates
The Mayans are acknowledge for their hieroglyphs, Pyramids made from rubbles, & slash numerals (||||-|||) with stone/obsidian tools as their great accomplishment achieve as it was purely indigenous.
China, India, Japan, Persians, Egyptians, & Semites (Arabs, Levant, Jews) are acknowledge for many of their great accomplishment achieve indigenously outside the realm of assimilation & transformations.
The Gun can be attributed to China's Fire Lance but the constant reinventions, modifications, & improvements done independently & indigenously using indigenous academics, science, math, tech, experiments on the firing mechanism, barrel, projectiles, & the incendiary medium that lunch or propels the projectile, makes it mostly of the culture & society that created its evolution into a flint lock in Europe, then revolvers, repeaters, machine, automatic. Colt, Luger, Maxim, Gatling, Browning, Winchester, Simonov, & Kalashnikov.

National ethnicitism/tribalism, nepotism, theoligism is an egotistical overbearing arrogance that overwhelms sound reasoning that can become very dangerous that may INCLUDE: envy, greed, wrath, glory/glamor hound, & slothness for those transformed & immature in denial of their origins, flaws & shortcomings. Those transformed will announce their pride of their culture prior to their transformation but in reality they are proud of the society that transformed them into that societies image. Images depicting their pre-transformation are censored, remove or erased from cinema, animation, or comics as they are ashamed of their past culture, shunning, never capitalizing on their past mythology, past religion, ritual & sacrificial practices, & tribal adornment, reacting to a spear like a vampire to a cross. http://www.ezakwantu.com/Gallery

Among the successful this arrogance can be reinforced by feats of accomplishment, beauty, innovation, & achievement such as the steam engine, A/C electric motor, kevlar, Space tech, Internal Combustion/Jet engine, Nuclear tech, inventing sports (field, indoor, ice, snow, grass, water, extreme) computerization, vulcanization, Refrigeration, Chemistry, Radio, Physics, Calculus, etc.
The longing enlightenment for equality have gone beyond it's meaning toward special privilege/treatment. True we are all conceive, created, & born equally, but that is where it ends, for it is our abilities & the path that we took towards it that make us all unequal. Nothing in nature, wildlife & even among humans are equal, thus why we all don't look alike, don't weigh the same, don't have the same occupation why applicants are interviewed for their abilities, competence & trustworthiness.
Since the dawn of time all society started out equally, but some evolve way past that of the others. Those that evolve into a great advance civilization competes with each other. Those left behind was either left alone or are transformed into the advance society's culture of literacy, math, science, technology & innovations.
