    Black Folks Learn About Tariq Ibn Ziyad.The reason Spanish people have melanin.......

    The reason Spanish people have melanin (the reason mexicans are as dark as me & you)Early in the eighth century Moorish soldiers crossed over from Africa to the Iberian peninsula. The man chosen to lead them was General Tarik ibn Ziyad. In 711, the bold Tarik, in command of an army of 10,000 men, crossed the straits and disembarked near a rock promontory which from that day since has borne his name--Djabal Tarik (`Tarik's Mountain'), or Gibraltar. In August 711, Tarik won paramount victory over the opposing European army. On the eve of the battle, Tarik is alleged to have roused his troops with the following words:

    "My brethren, the enemy is before you, the sea is behind; whither would ye fly? Follow your general; I am resolved either to lose my life or to trample on the prostrate king of the Romans."

    Wasting no time to relish his victory, Tarik pushed on with his dashing and seemingly tireless Moorish cavalry to the Spanish city of Toledo. Within a month's time, General Tarik ibn Ziyad had effectively terminated European dominance of the Iberian peninsula. Musa ibn Nusayr, Arab governor of North Africa, joined Tarik in Spain and helped complete the conquest of Iberia with an army of 18,000 men. The two commanders met in Talavera, where the Moors were given the task of subduing the northwest of Spain. With vigor and speed they set about their mission, and within three months they had swept the entire territory north of the Ebro River as far as the Pyrenees Mountains and annexed the turbulent Basque country.

    In the aftermath of these brilliant struggles, thousands of Moors flooded into the Iberian peninsula. So eager were they to come that some are said to have floated over on tree-trunks. Tarik himself, at the conclusion of his illustrious military career, retired to the distant East, we are informed, to spread the teachings of Islam

    ...shit is sad.

    There are mad movies made about Rome and her army and how she controlled the world, while little is mentioned in film* about the Moors, who may actually have been more influential.

    *main focus is in cinema because sadly, that's where a lot of the populous gets the initial impetus to give a fuck about history

    the thing about this is, people fail to mention the Carthaginian presence in Spain. Black folk were in Spain long before Tarik and the Moors got there.

    It is proven black "sun" people were in china long before the "yellow" dynasties we read about in ancient Chineese history. We were the first everywhere except certain regions in Europe where "ice" people lived...no body cared about the ice people, or the land they had. Then the ice people sought new lands because their land was rotten and they started exploring the world...and that was the start of ALL the chaos of humanity.
