This paper bases its description on John Thornton's book "Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1680" and theorizes that the systemic denial of the African cultural contribution is victimizing the African slave descendants as slavery victimized their forefathers.
From the Paper:"The Africans nation has had a vast and positive influence on the Atlantic World. Yet, the attitude of the nations of the Atlantic with regard to the African people has been somewhat prejudiced. The Africans were forcefully taken from their land and underwent a transition that displaced their culture to such a degree that even today, the people have a hard time facing their own traditions. The systemic racism they have faced in the Atlantic world has caused their culture, values and needs to be undermined such that they themselves are unable to accept the associated changes."
