This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

New Orleans is 60% black. Why would a city full of black people want confederate monuments in their city?
>>
they should take down all the statues of the founding fathers while they're at it. they weren't any better.
>>
>>2864169
It wasn't 60% black before liberal housing policies and forced integration of the New Orleans public schools made it that way. The city was stolen, along with countless other Southern urban centers.

This amazing thing happened when the printing press was invited and suddenly knowledge became 'easy' to aquire. People started telling the truth. The old 'historians' who made half their shit up only got away with it because they weren't likely to encounter a more knowledgeable peer who could call out their bullshit.

Now think about that in relation to social media, the MSM, and 'fake news.'

No. After the initial loss by Rome, they would send in people to sneak in and steal the rifles. Rome would reverse engineer it and get rifles of their own

What are your thoughts on the Hadith collections, stories about Muhammad's life written down long after his death, in Sunni Islam?

Got any favorites or ones that you found interesting?

Obviously the Hadith brought a lot of controversy to Islam and some like to use certain Hadiths such as the ones about Aisha's age to argue against Islam's integrity while others claim there are numerous Hadiths that are not actually authentic and should not be taken as truth.

Post hadiths/discuss them:

Sahih al-Bukhari Book 2 Hadith 22:

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

The Prophet said: "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you."

Brother, you don't discuss theological matter with infidels on Nazi anime website
>>
>>2864649
Indeed an intriguing Hadith
This Hadith is overlooked and ought to receive more attention.
Volume 2, Book 15, Number 72:

Narrated Aisha:

Abu Bakr came to my house while two small Ansari girls were singing beside me the stories of the Ansar concerning the Day of Buath. And they were not singers. Abu Bakr said protestingly, "Musical instruments of Satan in the house of Allah's Apostle !" It happened on the 'Id day andAllah's Apostle said, "O Abu Bakr! There is an 'Id for every nation and this is our 'Id."
>>
>>2864689

Could you explain that one?

Sahih al-Bukhari Book 92 Hadith 50

During the battle of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a Word (I heard from the Prophet). When the Prophet heard the news that the people of the Persia had made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen (ruler), he said, "Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler."

No. Fascists are militant social collectivists who are obsessed with sex/reproduction/race issues and operate conspiratorially in politics - so, in order to make themselves seem credible, they always have to find enemies that they can portray as being even more threateningly collectivist, obsessed with sex/reproduction/race issues, and conspiratorial than they themselves are. And if such enemies do not exist, fascists will invent them. Fascism requires a certain kind of narrative to sustain its own emotional thrust - the nation is surrounded by enemies and in danger, society is crumbling and needs revival, and so on. Of course fascists are no better than the enemies they supposedly fight, but stupid people get sucked into the narrative just like they get sucked into cults like Scientology or Bolshevism.

And that reason is...?

So earlier today I was told by some african american woman that:
>The moors were ancient group of africans who moved to america and were black then became the native americans, and the only reason modern natives look lighter is because of the white man, and everything I say is part of the european hoax and DNA is also a hoax.
How do I deal with such people /his/

That's true and imo worth pointing out that the same is largely true for white people in that 9/10 of us are mixed between different european backgrounds and hardly any of us living in the US maintain any real cultural connection to our different euro roots aside from what we may collect from researching it as adults rather than legitimately inheriting an understanding of our heritage from our parents or older family members. Thats 9/10 white ppl anyway these days.
