Why didn’t Africans develop swords before European contact every example that’s shown is post European contact and is of European origins why didn’t blacks develop I’ve seen no archaeological findings on swords from black africa interesting isn’t for a group the supposedly independently developed metallurgy we have no actual confirmed metal weapons crafts etc from pre contact africa

Leftshit cope in 3, 2, 1...
Yes. Leftoids are a plague on this board and always block any meaningful discussion rather than contribute to it. OP wouldn't be wasting catalogue space this shitty bait thread if you retards weren't here.
>boohoo muh lefties are why schizos who just want to vomit out racist tirades with no regard to facts keep posting
>THIS BOARD IS A HECKIN LEFTIST STRONGHOLD MY POLTRANNY DISCORD RAID SAID SO
When your political views are made up of the most retarded failed ideologies that are rejected by 99% of the population, everyone is a leftist to you.
Define 'pre-contact' Africa, as Africa has had contact with Europe, the Near East, and the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years.
Also spears > swords. Bottom text.
This, plus there's plenty of places that obviously could make swords where they still weren't weren't widely used. Spears and bows dominate everywhere.
Ancient Egypt for example wasn't fond of them, they had the khopesh which isn't even really a sword, and even that largely stopped being used after the bronze age, swords didn't become important until the greeks.
The mighty Egyptian army was pic related.

The bigger question is why didn't Norsemen invent swords despite being in Europe?
Literally all Viking Swords are just imported Frankish weapons.
They just used the same style dumbass
>inb4.muh ulfbert or something of the like
Frank's had better metalworkers and so Frankish swords were prized, but the vast majority or swords in scandinavia during that time were made in Scandinavia
Hey now, they copied the Arabs too. the Kaskara is thought to be derived from the early straight arab swords.
I’ve heard that claimed but not substantiated just assumed
1. OP states something obviously wrong about Africa using literally the same sentence structure and lexicon for the 1000th time
2. OP changes his IP and starts arguing with himself
3. OP dumps his autism folder for the 1000th timr
Bonus points if he pretends to be Somalian or some other African ethnicity halfway through
It’s funny you think this all one guy and not just that these threads are easy bait for retards like you and all you’ve mention to fall for
How's it going OP?
Serious question why do you think it’s all one person when very obviously isn’t?

The Shotel is a sword that dates back to the Aksumite Empire.
Axumites were semitic
Under your logic hispanicized pure and near pure natives in Latin America are Spanish.
We have some metal weapons from Africa that are so weird they couldn't have possibly been copies of anything from anywhere else. Like these... things.
I assume those were used strictly against other humans, to catch and disarm, no?
No, they were throwing weapons.
Those are throwing knives
I watched this kino a couple months back called Genesis of the Ashanti. And these Africans made it low budget but it was interesting to see how Europeanized they made their storytelling, like it was Jungian. And the costumes were weird, some would call it gay but it isn't, and the leaders among them had a few European style weapons, most fought with spears and other more traditional style stuff. They even put the God of War 3 theme in it. I genuinely enjoyed the movie btw it was pure SOVL
Hyenas (1992 film)
The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun
Wanderers of the Desert
