Don't believe the Wikipedian social marketers or ambassadors (there are lots of black ones) who say that benign Wikipedia is a good starting point for research, it is ladden with and spread distortion on the afro-descendant, mainly any bigot or racist can edit it, sad the racism is internal. It is not just systemic bias. Start your research with BlackPast.org and donate your funds to this organization.
When I write articles for Afropedea.org, I also use BlackPast.org as a reference. To students, you don't have to worry about it being rejected by your professor as un-academic. It is written by academics.
