A new children’s book, “Brilliant Black British History” by Nigerian-born writer Atinuke, is claiming that the U.K. has more blacks in its history than whites, and that the famed Stonehenge was built by blacks.
The apparent revisionist history isn’t going down well with many:
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.
“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,” the report explained. “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.”
It confirmed it’s “not true” that Britain was a “black country” when Stonehenge was built.
“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.”
The Daily Mail documents that Atinuke’s book, aimed at children about age 7, claims the “very first Britons were black.”
The book charges Britain has been “mostly a white country for a lot less time than it has been mostly a black country.”
The report said the book is published by Bloomsbury and promoted by literacy charity The Book Trust.
“It says that Britain was ‘a black country more than 7,000 years before white people came and during that time the most famous British monument was built, Stonehenge,’” the Mail report reveals.
“But research published in 2019 suggested the Neolithic farmers who built Stonehenge had paler skin and were descended from populations originating in Anatolia in what is now Turkey. They also likely had brown eyes and black or dark-brown hair.”
The book also claims that some of the Roman soldiers who invaded and ruled Britain were black.
The Mail reported the book’s appearance follows a campaign by “Don’t Divide Us” claiming that children are being exposed to “anti-racism” theories.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS:Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.
As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”
Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?
Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.
