Maafa Mkubwa of Global Afrikans c. 5741 KC* [c. 1500 CE – Present] Part 1
Ambakisye-Okang Dukuzumurenyi, Ph.D. Public Policy Analysis
Demographic analysis of the Afrikan continent today by the Economists of the World Bank shows that the population of continental Afrikans c. 6255 KC [c. 2014 CE] in the “semi-liberated” areas of Afrika ya Magharibi [Kiswahili: West Afrika], Afrika ya Kusini [Kiswahili: Southern Afrika], Afrika ya Mashariki [Kiswahili: East Afrika] and Afrika ya Kati [Kiswahili: Central Afrika] was estimated to be approximately 1,100,000,000 souls. Add to this the CIA World Factbook calculations on the number of Afrikans c. 6252 KC [c. 2011 CE] in the Caribbean, Marekani ya Kaskazini [Kiswahili: North America], Marekani ya Kusini [Kiswahili: South America], Marekani ya Kati [Kiswahili: Central America], and Ulaya [Kiswahili: Europe]: 186,422,178; and the Afrikan populations of the Dalit and Dravidian populations of India, Nepal and Pakistan: 392,500,000; plus the Afrikan peoples of Australia: 520,000; the Pacific: 8,000,000; and the Afrikans of occupied Afrika ya Kaskazini [North Afrika- Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia and Egypt]: 195,637,341 and the total Global Afrikan Population is an estimated 1,883,079,519 people out of a total world population of 6,000,000,000.
Given the harsh nature of Global Afrikan life in its current occupied and dominated, neo-colonial contexts which are rife with high infant and mother mortality rates, malnutrition and other types of hunger, biological warfare such as UKIMWI: Ukosefu wa Kinga Mwilini [Kiswahili: AIDS] and vaccinations, economic and Utamaduni [Kiswahili: Culture] warfare these numbers may seem a testament to the Global Afrikan 3XW/Akhu [Kush/Kemet: Spirit] of survival, but a conclusion of that sort could only be arrived at by a socially dislocated, Utamaduni mis-oriented and ahistorical mentality. Generally, the population increase across Global Afrika in the last fifty to eighty years, is credited to improvements in food and health systems as a direct result of Eurasian Colonization; a supposed positive outcome of the Ulaya [Kiswahili: Europe] ‘Civilizing Mission’ to the ‘Dark Continent.’ A conclusion of this nature also is devoid of Afrikan-centered historical grounding, resulting instead, from the Ulaya Colonization of all socialization agencies including schooling and information about the world.
Louis-Marie Maes-Diop , a demographic historian and the late wife of the Senegalese scholar Mhenga [Kiswahili: Ancestor] Cheikh Anta Diop, after a careful analysis of Afrikan continental demographic data has determined that c. 6091 KC [c. 1850 CE] the population of the continent of Afrika stood at 200,000,000 people. According to the c. 6189-6190 KC [c. 1948-1949 CE] Afrikan Census, the population of continental Afrika was counted at being approximately 125,000,000 people. From further study of Afrikan population density recorded in European and Aryan-Arab sources, Dr. Louis-Marie Maes-Diop determined that c. 5741 KC [c. 1500 CE] the population density of continental Afrika was 40 persons per square kilometer, which puts total population at approximately 800,000,000 people. Therefore between c. 5741-6091 KC [c. 1500-1850 CE] the population of continental Afrika had decreased dramatically from 800,000,000 to 200,000,000 people. This precipitous drop in population was followed by another dramatic decrease in between the years c. 6091-6190 KC [c. 1850-1949 CE] when the population dropped from 200,000,000 to 125,000,000 continental Afrikans. The entire period is what is referred to as the Maafa Mkubwa [Kiswahili: Great Suffering] of Afrikan people.
In c. 5741 KC [c. 1500 CE] continental Afrika was a densely populated continent with self-reliant, Black Afrikan controlled, egalitarian, ethnically plural, regional empires and kingdoms. The large cities of continental Afrika had populations ranging from 60,000 to 140,000 people, while towns had populations of between 1,000 and 10,000 people. Other areas which were not organized under a centralized regional government were densely populated with large dispersed settlements organized around local forms of self-reliant political economic governance. Also, c. 5741 KC [c. 1500 CE] is also the advent of European expansion into continental Afrika as well as the continued movement of Aryan-Arabs south coming from the northern part of the Afrikan continent. The violent penetrations of Europeans and Aryan-Arabs led to political, economic and social dislocation of Afrika-Nyeusi [Kiswahili: Black Afrika]. The Aryan-Arab penetration was negligible until c. 5741 KC [c. 1500 CE] when mechanized weaponry provided Europeans and Aryan-Arabs with a distinct advantage over the offensive and defensive capabilities of Black Afrikan armed forces. Advanced military weaponry allowed the Moroccans to invade and splinter the Songhai Empire in a decade c. 5742-5752 KC [c. 1591-1601 CE].
Aryan-Arab and European conquest of Afrika in search of natural resources and populations for enslavement led to the disintegration of continental Black Afrikan Kingdoms some of which implemented the policy of military raiding of neighbor kingdoms to procure the forced labour required by the Aryan-Arabs and Europeans, which would be exchanged in some cases for outmoded mechanized weaponry. The Utamboni [Kiswahili: State of War] that ensued led to grassroots migrations, massive population shifts, which further disrupted food systems, health systems and the overall social systems of settled and nomadic continental Black Afrikan nations and communities. The breakdown of governments and social structures created a Hobbesian state of anarchy, where small groups and individuals were forced to defend themselves against organized, foreign subsidized mercenary hordes. The state of social disintegration created a vacuum which was filled by European and Aryan-Arab political and economic interests and in the new Utamaduni distortion gave birth to the social parasite which continues to plague Afrika-Nyeusi: the Aryan-Arab or European culturally-oriented Black Colonialist Political Collaborator class, who in order to escape the misery which abounded and to procure the pseudo-luxuries of the perceived new European and Aryan-Arab powers, in selfish interest, would serve Europeans and Aryan-Arabs, as a political class of Mercenaries, ‘forced labour’ Brokers, Wards of captive Afrikans in mini-concentration camps or temporary ‘slave’ pens, organizers and protectors of Caravans, interpreters for Europeans and Aryan-Arabs and suppliers of provisions for the European and Aryan-Arab interlopers. The continental Afrikan Nyeusi population decrease in the period of c. 5741-6190 KC [c. 1500-1949 CE] from approximately 800,000,000 to 125,000,000 people resulted from the murder of millions of the Wahenga na Wahenguzi [Kiswahili: Great Ancestors] at the hands of Afrikan Comprador Collaborators  in service to European and Aryan-Arab political economic interests.
*In this article two calendars will be presented as a guide to recorded events. One is the Julian calendar to which all in the Eurocentric countries and their former colonies are familiar with. Its divisions used here are BCE, Before the Common Era and CE, the Common Era. The second calendar is labeled KC, for Kemet/Kush Calendar. This Kemet/Kush calendar was based on the Sopdet Year [Sothic Cycle]. The German Egyptologist Eduard Meyer of the Berlin School of Egyptology developed the Sothic Theory in 1904. See: Eduard Meyer, Ägyptische Chronologie, (Akademie der Wissenschaften: Berlin, 1904). The Sothic Theory is based on the 1,460 year cycle of the star Sopdet [Sirius]. The Peret Sopdet, heliacal rising of Sopdet, is mentioned in many Kemetic documents as occurring in the same observational position every 1,460 years would occur on the Wep Renpet or Kemetic New Year. The earliest Sopdet Year as calculated by Eduard Meyer occurred in c. 4241 BCE, with a second Sopdet Year occurring in c. 1461 KC [c. 2780 BCE] during the 4th Kemetic Dynasty. Another Sopdet Year is stated to have occurred during the 12th Dynasty in the seventh year of Per-aa Sesotris III according to the Illahun Papyrus. The Eberus Medical Papyrus also states that a Sopdet Year occurred in the ninth year of the 18th Dynasty Per-aa Amenhotep I. By dating Afrikan history from an Afrikan time-frame the contemporary events discussed occur in the, conservatively speaking, 62nd century of Afrikan Global history.

 Afrikan Collaborators generally came from the ruling Aristocracy including Spiritual Priests and Priestesses, while also including members of the grassroots.
