#africatop10 The list of things that the colonisers took away from Africa is endless. One priceless piece of our identity that was wickedly snatched from us is our artefacts that are now scattered all over the world, miles away from their native lands. Africa’s desperate calls for the return of these objects of cultural heritage have largely been met with disdain and unabashed defence of the indefensible.

i would say one of the battles was lost, the war is still going on and it would seem that Europe is the one losing, why else would but hurt white boys like you come on a video dealing with Africa with a name like yours ?
The Italians stole A whole 24m Obelisk from Ethiopia in ww2 and put it in rome for 30 years and returned back!
I Wonder how did they transported it backdays! even when it was returning it didnt feet in antonove that they have to cut it in pieces!
Looks like your biggest beefs are with the Brits and Germans. (The USA and Canada only shared in 1 of your Top 10, the mummies.) You do realize (I hope) that some things are gifts, e.g., the Temple of Dendur (thankfully not in your list) was a gift from Egypt to the USA.
Its very interesting how the Black mind works. As i listen to all that was "stolen" all I kept hearing was military force was used to take it. Yet not ONE African nation, and I mean not ONE, has put itself on a path where it can be a nuclear power so that it can stop events like that from ever happening again. Nowhere in Africa is the battle cry "Never again". Instead all I keep hearing is they need to return what they took by force. Why don't you make them return it? Begging pleading and crying won't do it.
You showed the wrong picture for the Benin bronze. That pix is Ife bronze not Benin. Google Queen Idia mask and you will see the priceless Benin bronze mask and many other artefacts stolen by the British during the Benin invasion of 1897. The Nigerian govt has been fighting to get its treasures back but the British have stubbornly refused to return them. The wealth and resources (human and material) taken by Europeans from Africa is unquantifiable.
First let me say am from Benin, as those who are knowledgeable will see that my surname is ancient. This is why I have the right to say this: LET THEM KEEP WHAT THEY HAVE STOLEN. Why you ask? Because they actually helped you by taking away a little of your curses. You shall not treasure none serve images. Fear God and give glory to him. From the beginning to my father's generation, they were not good, so these things are not good either. I have seen a lot to write like this. What you have to do now, is work the ways of God and do greater things; not crying over the past. Wake up!
I have shared and loved this video so please family let's keep the shares up let's go, welcome this history and to your family let's go blacks !!!!! YouTube don't forget to hit the like button and donate if you can 📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢📢
It's about time Western Europe acknowledges and TRULY repent and repays for all the wrongs they have done, the lives they have ruined, the resources they have stolen. Westerners are far too hasty to forget this. Their high styles of living would not have been possible without the inhumane thievery which they did word wide. From systematic famines, to deliberate looting, western colonialism has never proved to be anything but world wide larceny.
It's not Benin and Nigeria, Benin or more properly called Bini are a tribe in Nigeria not to be confused with Benin Republic they are very far apart So the great Bini kingdom in Nigeria is different from Benin Republic.
ALL the Mask Come From the Tikar's people of Cameroon( North West Region) Bamenda people are know for their craft work and the most rebellious people group in Cameroon.. we Migrated from Sudan in the 16 century and settled in North Western Grass-field Of Cameroon in Bamenda. I weep when i see our Afo-Akom and other Nji-Ngang scattered all over Europe and America . Everybody Loves Cameroon.
That's the European at best, Family!!! When I was a young boy in Great lakes "Burundi" a Congolese Eldery, friend to my grandfather, told us that it is an insult to lower those Sits to"artefacts". Missionaries would come to African priests after corrupting chefs and Kings to Christianity, to give order to their priest to hand over those sits of African Gods " artefacts" as they are Evel, unchristian. He said, Priests ll obey but thank God, they were not that Naive, they would remove spirits out before giving them to White Robbers. Hence we were not wiped out of the lands like indigenous in America and Australia. we might see ourselves as week but but the Whites knew and know what secret powers, those sits processed, we can cry Rivers West if spirits could be reinstalled in those sits, It can wake us up, and we can regain our lost conscious. They can't control us again. The lost secret glory is in there, Why would Rich Europe give any aid but find so hard to return a simple artefacts as they foolishly the call them. What a derogatory terms!
The pale criminals.
LOL, it's sad and unfortunate for Africans to believe that these shameless and immoral criminals could help Africa to develop.
Africans and black people, realize that you are the money you're looking from the poor pale man. You are money!! Everything about you is money. The pale man is the epitome of worthless, poor and needy. He sees you as a meal, and as long as he needs food, you're on the MENU. Sad but true.
HE PSYCHOLOGICALLY MADE US TO BELIEVE HE'S RICH, and that made us to believe he's the money but he's far from being money.
You can not beg a mosquito not to bite you, as Black Life Matters are doing, 'cos it can not stop looking for your blood until you separate yourself with a screen, and so is all predators - crocodiles, anacondas and hyenas.
That Nefertiti head is highly questionable. I don't think that's how she was depicted authentically. I've seen more Afrikan features on other depictions. This looks like the fake some european concocted and was found out.
The problem is that Africa , in almost all cases, does not have the security, technology, and facilities to preserve these treasures. They are better off left where they are until Africa is more developed. If they were returned to Africa now, there is a good chance that they would be stolen or destroyed. I too would like to see them returned but at the proper time.
Just an aside, there is evidence that the Nefertiti bust is a forgery and is not indigenous to Africa/Egypt. Look it up if you are interested in knowing more about this.
Most of the non-white cultural artifacts from Europeans museums were stolen tbh, like mummies in Louvre ,Chinese paintings and vases in British museum ,most of them were stolen back then .Sadly people tend to ignore their origins ,they are just curiously talking photos of them ,but tend not to get into the story of how their ancestors killed people and raided tombs to get those treasures from all over the world.
Great video. Knowledge is power. We can never learn too much in this lifetime. My name is Desree Crooks, I am the author and producer of this beautiful Afrocentric Children's novel and movie, "Nzingha the Great Warrior of Angola" click on the link to watch Act. 1 of my movie and tell me what you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gt9RIT6F8E&t=52s?
Yes I like your video . Thieves ! Thieves ! Thieves ! They steal , kill , and destroy , just like their father the devil ! How do you just take other people's belongings and then display them as if they belong to you !
Bilel B those savages the history they left in Africa should be enough to ban them from continent. The humiliation Africans suffered from those bastards. We don't need them we have everything we need on the continent
You do realise North Africa was inhabited by Europeans until Muslims invaded. By the way I think Europe has more than paid for these via aid development mass immigration Africans on welfare in Europe. How so you know it was stolen? Maybe the West African stuff was exchanged. What evidence do you have it was stolen. Really Britain invades to steal an old statue?
Mrs Mac It is documented in the museum themselves. If you research the artifacts you can see how they came into European hands. And Europeans were in North Africa but they didn't replace all the people there. Europeans have benefited from colonism and slavery of Africans for hundreds of years. You are acting like all the black people living in the West are on welfare. Anyway watch this video which shows a European destroying Pyramids and stealing artifacts from Sudan. https://youtu.be/DR6Q2E08xls
Just another account as you know North Africa is very near the Med Countries. Greeks , Italians etc and at particular points in History North Africa was a part of the Roman and Greek Empires. It's not funny it's history learn it.
The Nefertiti bust is said to NOT be real. It’s as old as the European “discoverers” who found it. He created the Bust to look like his European wife. Took it out to the desert, covered it with sand, then act like he dug it out of the ground.
