DID YOU KNOW CORNROWS WERE USED AS MAPS FOR ESCAPED FORMERLY ENSLAVED AFRICANS. San Basilio de Palenque is a village in Northern Colombia about 50 miles East of Cartagena with a population of around 3,500 people. San Basilio de Palenque is one of several walled cities that were started by escaped slaves in the 17th century. The city was set up as a refuge for escaped slaves by escaped slave Benkos Bioho, it is also the only city that has survived and is still inhabited today. The people who live here now are mainly Afro-Colombians which are direct descendants of African slaves brought by the Spanish during the Colonization of the Americas. Benkos Bioho was born in Africa and claimed to have been a king there. Captured in Africa by the Portuguese and sold several times until being sold to a Spaniard in Cartagena. Benkos Bioho tried to escape several times before he finally succeeded. After his escape he formed a town with others that freed themselves. There they developed their own language called Palenquero. The language is influenced by the Kikongo language of Congo and Angola and also by Portuguese. He also formed an army and an intelligence network to help organize the escape of other slaves and to guide them to the liberated areas. One of the things he did was have the women shape maps in their cornrows. They were also used as symbols to deliver messages. Bioho also had the women collect seeds and put them in their hair as decoration. Later the seeds would be passed on to the village so they could start to grow their own crops. He was later called King Benkos grew his army of Maroons (African refugees who escaped slavery in the Americas and formed independent settlements). His army of Maroons started raiding Spanish plantations, farms, and ranches. King Benkos also had spies that alerted him to the movements of his enemies and because of this he was never defeated. Unable to defeat King Benkos and the Maroons the Spanish Governor of Cartengena offered a peace treaty. The peace deal was finalized but a few years later was called off after the Spanish discovered a plot King Benkos was organizing against them.

I don't like the term white people. It's an invented race. Europeans are broken down into Italians, German, English, Spaniards, etc. White makes them sound united & more than they are. Not all Europeans colonised the globe after they came out of the caves, many were poor & never traveled anywhere, they were enslaved by their governments, as some of their governments set about enslaving the world. Then when the colonisers went around the world raping women with melanin, if they stayed around long enough they would realise that their children didn't look like them. They used to lynch and castrate African men because they fears them impregnating European women and wiping out this "white" race. The Arabs weren't exempt, during the Tran Saharan enslavement of Africans, Arabs used to castrate every African man that they stole to force to fight in their armies in the "holy wars" 1 in 5 survived, as for the women they kidnapped to have as concubines (sex slaves), if they fell pregnant they would murder their babies. What needs to be said is though, Europeans on the whole are at a negative birth rate. Africans & Indians & Chinese are at a positive birth rate. Why do you think that some Europeans are always whining about overpopulation. The globe is being populated by people who don't look like them. It is being populated in the countries the darker people are indigenous to, where all of the resources are. African Genes are biologically superior, (music, physically, communication, Architecture, food, cultures, health, medicine (they haven't cured the common cold! etc, the "modern" advances in technology are spiritually devoid, space age started in ancient African Egypt) that's why when you mix African with European you still get African. Africans can make "white" (Albanism-melanin deficiency) Europeans cant make black (actually black, Melanated) Brown & black people globally you are the majority, eventually the world will be brown & black, the sun is pro melanin, even the cold is pro Melanin, the Inuits are melanated people's & they live in the coldest places that humans have cultures. Time will tell us what will become of the "minority's" & the majorities. chakabars: WHITE PEOPLE BELIKE GOTTA HELPTHEMINORITIES I don't like the term white people. It's an invented race.
