Black Law Students / Re: A World Without Black People...

Haha, I'm not sure if this was ever remarked on, so if it wasn't I would like to address a crucial flaw in the post: if there were never any Black people, there would be no people. Don't anthropologists believe that our first ancestor evolved in Kenya? The global Black community has made great contributions given the structural disadvantages forced on them in the past few centuries, but let's not forget that social distinctions by race are scientifically illogical.

Also, it's a little illogical to assume that non-Blacks could have never conceived of inventions made by Black people. I'm certain that society would have progressed similarly if there had never been Whites at all (or if they were marginalized in the way that those of African-decent are today).

Thanks for the information, though. Black history and African-American culture isn't given enough academic representation in schools nowadays. Well, was it ever?
