    Afro-Abkhazians are descendants of the Ottoman Slave Trade from East Africa who were sent to the Caucasus (probably to work on citrus plantations).

    Why did the modern left decide go from workers rights to SJW concerns?

    Why and when did the modern left decide to go from fighting for workers rights and things like the 8 hour working day and 2 to 3 weeks or paid leave a year to things like third wave feminism, supporting mass immigration which lowers wages generally speaking, and LGBTQIA rights? This trend is...

    The myth of US P.O.Ws left behind after the Vietnam war?

    Just back from Florida, lovely place, especially Key West but I was amazed to see so many buildings still fly the Vietnam MIA flag. Surely that legend was dispelled decades ago? And even if it hadn't surely everyone accepts that there would be none left alive now?

    Academic Guidance Is there anything left to study in history?

    This question goes to historians from a candidate historian. It seems that there is nothing/no field left worth too much to study in this field except for some tiny details. Pretty much everything has been studied and written by others. I can’t find a reason to pursue being historian.

    Aye... I didn't even want to make this thread really, but I feel I had to clear things up, because the topic of "did Africa have any civilizations" is a popular talking point on here. And to be honest I am kinda getting tired of it. Anyhow I'm not going to be talking about Ancient Egypt or...
