Eurocentrism philosophy is

- violent
- patriarchal
- categorical (race/class/gender)
- individual
-capitalist/neo liberal

while Afrocentrism philosophy is a community, it is NOT patriarchal, it sees men and women as equals, it cherishes the soul, black man as the embodiment of god and black woman as goddess...it is not capitalistic like Eurocentrism

Sweeping with a rather broad brush aren't you? You say there are no categories in traditional African societies? Do they/ have they had captives and slaves, or servants to the chief/king? How are intellectually disabled, physically disabled and other less than functional persons persons be treated? How about historically? Are they accepting of homesexuality? And there never is/has been any violence?

While we all appreciate a good joke, this is not a good joke.

Or maybe we could try to get a handle on African and European history instead, and avoid thinking in over-generalizations at all...

OP doesn't seem to understand what Eurocentrism/Afrocentrism actually is.

...................
That would seem to be an accurate statement

Quite amazing that two continents full of diverse countries and peoples both with ancient histories and civilisations should have just one uniform 'philosophy' each -- one of which is universally 'bad' and the other universally 'good'.

From this description, I get the impression that not even Africans practice afrocentrism.

It is better for Eurocentro to dominate but there is a little need for Afrocentro.The more superior white race want sophisticated system and that is the must for Africans to prosper in their more nature related system.Africa once become stable can support some of the needs of old Europe communities.
