I'm sure you will jump down my throat and try to put words in there saying i am trying to erase or minimize the horrible history and effect old and current of euro-coloniazism in Afrika, but that is not not case here. I am putting this querry out there in hopes of seeing a wholistic picture.
Q: Was there any tribal war, in other words; black on black killing before the so called white man returned to Afrika w/slave ships and colonization?
I think tribes have been at war for many millenia
and it continues today. Is a huge % of afrikas' problems due to euro colonialism and its effect to this day? YES 100% CORRECT. but are there other native problems and attrocities that occured before colonization and continue on to this day that are just black on black crimes period? one tribe killling off a next, stealing goats + cattle, stealing grazing land etc. just like their great great great great grand did before them??
again, i am not trying to minimize or erase or whitewash the evil that euro colonialism brought on and the residual poison that lingers there today. i am just saying to see the whole picture, you need all the ingredients.
