For countless years, humanity has strived to get to the bottom of Planet Earth’s origins, from ancient civilizations to the Big Bang Theory to the existence of Dinosaurs. Look no further than the recent facial sculpture of Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti, which falsely depicted her as a white woman. Over time, the original homo sapien has been the focus of many archaeological debates. Thanks to the recent genome testing of a British fossil, we may be a step closer to crowning the Black Man as the original man.
A full genome has been taken from the oldest British fossil, nicknamed “Cheddar Man,” in an attempt to recreate the ancient European’s facial structure. To the scientists’ surprise, the analysis suggested that the 10,000-year-old man possessed a dark pigmentation, similar to the hue the Black men of present times is celebrated — and chastised — for.
While the melanated skin tone was the eyebrow-raiser, the other eye-popping (pun intended) feature that Cheddar Man’s scientists discovered was a head-scratching one. The science suggests that Cheddar Man had blue eyes, which is inconsistent with the natural eye color of Blacks in the present day. However, then again, it is felt that the imaginary racial lines that are drawn by us members of modern society are barely applicable to those that lived during Cheddar Man’s time.
For those that can’t come to grips with an ancient Black European, there is no need to question that possibility. The DNA Analysis on Cheddar Man suggests that his ancestors migrated from Africa to the Middle East, before ultimately settling in Europe, Britain to be specific.
In a world where there is a persistent effort made to misinform the masses about the origins of humanity, it is refreshing to see an attempt made to disseminate the real history about Black People. The “depiction” of what Queen Nefertiti would look like is yet another instance where the African narrative is being warped and manipulated to sway the European’s common historical perception in a positive direction. It is very rare to have credibility attached to a scientific study that credits the African as the original people, despite the abundance of evidence that supports this Afrocentric belief.
