(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Those who thought America was uniquiely “racist” in its origin story can think again.
After using the racial-justice framework to impose critical race theory as a sort of woke religion in the U.S., neo-Marxist radicals are returning to their roots across the pond, where political philosopher Karl Marx first crafted his theories using a class-based prototype.
And it appears more than a millennium of recorded British history is of minor consequence for modern-day revisionists when the ends justify the means.
Race-baiting academics in the United Kingdom are releasing a children’s book claiming, among other things, that blacks built the famous Stonehenge monument, the Daily Mail reported.
Following the lead of Nikole Hannah–Jones—the “1619 Project” author and notorious historical revisionist—the Nigerian-born British author Atinuke penned the new children’s book, titled Brilliant Black British History.
The book, written for children 7 and older, suggests that “every single British person comes from a migrant” and that the “very first Britons were black.”
“Did you know that the first Britons were black? Or that some of the Roman soldiers who invaded and ruled Britain were black, too?” it asks.
“Join this fascinating journey through the ages to meet those first Britons, as well as the black Tudors, Georgians and Victorians who existed in every walk of life here,” it continues.
Among other outlandish claims, Atinuke writes that the Romans only moved to conquer Northern Europe after failing to conquer the African kingdom of Nubia.
Into the Middle Ages, according to the children’s book, Britain and other infant European nations were made up of a “hodgepodge of people,” including “Celts, Romans, Britons, Anglo–Saxons, Vikings, Africans and Normans.”
The book is considered by the Left to be an “eye-opening history of Britain” that illuminates “a part of our past that has mostly been left out of the history books: the brilliant black history of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.”
Atinuke was mocked relentlessly on Twitter for the absurdly revisionist history, packaged as a children’s story.
One Twitter user called the book “fake history.”
According to historians, the first black people in Britain arrived under the Roman Empire in around 300 AD.
Stonehenge, meanwhile, was constructed during the Bronze Age between 3000 and 2000 BC.

Another Twitter user suggested that, if the Left is so intent on studying Africans and magnifying their influence on the course of history, they should study what happened in Africa rather than fabricate fables about Africans to exaggerate their importance in European affairs.
Why do they always do this?
Why not focus on real African history? pic.twitter.com/O4dUwdNtEh
