It’s quite puzzling why there’s such a fervor among blacks to appropriate historical narratives. This phenomenon occurs frequently, with many blacks laying claim to well-documented historical events.
Unfortunately, this has led to substantial disinformation campaigns that are effectively rewriting history. Many historians remain silent, fearful of facing potential backlash from a radical cancel mob that’s more concerned with narratives and messaging than facts and truth.
Another perfect example of this disturbing phenomenon centers around a new kids book that just came out called “Brilliant Black British History,” which incorrectly claims that Stonehenge was erected at a time when Britain was a “black country.” That’s not true. According to historians, the first black African people in Britain arrived under the Roman Empire around 300 A.D. Stonehenge was constructed during the Bronze Age between 3000 and 2000 B.C. But that didn’t stop a Nigerian-born author from re-telling the story a totally different way.
Stonehenge was built by black people, a new children’s history book has claimed.
Readers of Brilliant Black British History, by the Nigerian-born British author Atinuke, are told the neolithic monument in Wiltshire was built while Britain was a ‘black country’.
The book, which is aimed at children aged seven and above, also tells readers that ‘every single British person comes from a migrant’ and that the ‘very first Britons were black’
The introduction adds that Britain has been ‘mostly a white country for a lot less time than it has been mostly a black country’.
Atinuke also claims that the remains of the 10,000-year-old Cheddar Man belonged to someone who had ‘skin as dark as dark can be’.
Could this be the reason why the left is toppling statues worldwide? Are they attempting to obliterate history and reshape to line up with their political agenda?
Why do they always do this?

According to historians, the first black people in Britain arrived under the Roman Empire in around 300 AD.
Stonehenge, meanwhile, was constructed during the Bronze Age between 3000 and 2000 BC.

As you can see, historically, the timelines simply don’t add up. But don’t take our word for it. The fine folks over at English Heritage would beg to differ with this books claim.
The black history of Britain is by its nature a global history. Yet too often it is seen as being only the history of migration, settlement and community formation in Britain itself.’
– David Olusoga, Black and British: A Forgotten History
Black histories are a vital part of England’s story, reaching back many centuries. There is evidence of African people in Roman Britain as far back as the 3rd century AD, and black communities have been present since at least 1500.
English Heritage is committed to telling the story of England in full. Black history, from antiquity to the 21st century, helps us to reflect on the connections between the past and present, and the importance of history to our understanding of what’s happening today.
This rewriting of history jibes with an entertainment industry which is also engaged in its own version of woke historical revisionism.
It’s disheartening to witness a time in America when truth and facts take a backseat and the main focus revolves around race-driven propaganda fueled by guilt.
