      There is no equivalent between domesticated plants and processed “food.” This is a false comparison. Therefore, I see you and your channel as extremely suspect.

                You turned 20 seconds of content into a 5.5 min video.
                TL;DW horses have a herd/family mentality that can be exploited for domestication, putting humans at the top of the hierarchy and Zebras don’t and are strongly independent and stubborn.

                    Great video! Just, as someone who's been around horses occasionally and knows a few things from others - the heard is lead by a female, not the male, it is almost always the lead *mare* (which everyone ik calls b*tch mare). Also given the time it takes for pregnancy in horses and the fact at 1 year theyre already big (and called a yearling not a foal) It's very unlikely they'll have multiple foals.

                              The two races native to Sub-Saharan Africa never domesticated a single plant nor animal species...not until quite late in the game after contact with North African peoples, the Islamic world and Europeans. They never devised a single written script nor did they develop any of the other trappings of civilisation, let alone proper villages or anything like a city in form or function. Their languages were lacking words for colours, numbers and higher concepts--except perhaps 'light', 'dark', 'red' (or 'one', 'two', 'three' and 'many'). They never built proper homes. It was only after contact--and exploitation--by more intelligent outsiders that they acquired livestock and agriculture. Africa was full of animals and useful plants that could have been properly tamed, domesticated and exploited. The peoples of Eurasia tamed and then domesticated everything from giant aurochs--which became cattle--to wild caribou--which became reindeer. The peoples of the Americas domesticated llama species, certain types of bird, bred several types of dogs and even undertook the successful domestication of different kinds of rodents, insects and fish. The peoples of sub-Saharan Africa were not intelligent enough nor motivated enough to create civilisation for themselves. If they had been, zebras, native bovines and many other types of animals would have been bred to more useful, manageable forms. Modern humans have lived continuously in sub-Saharan Africa for perhaps 250,000 years, yet continued in hunter-gatherer mode almost until modern times. Meanwhile, the Northern races and peoples had colonised most of the rest of the rest of the world and as soon as conditions permitted, began farming. Animal husbandry is far older, in fact. There is some evidence that dogs were domesticated and proper, concerted animal management started in Neanderthal times. There is evidence that some groups of Neanderthals might have actually constructed animal pens. Most of our domesticated animals--with the notable exceptions of chickens and pigs--were all European / Central Asian in origin. Pigs were domesticated in Southeast Asia and chickens were domesticated in Southeast Asia and on the Indian subcontinent independently (with many crossovers). There were plenty of animals in Africa that could have been domesticated. They certainly would have had a far longer time to shape them into more useful forms. This never happened. This phenomenon should probably tell us more about the people who did these things and how fundamentally different they were from the folks who didn't.

                                😂 And where did you read that exactly? You should do better research. Early farming and pastoralism, or food production, in Africa can be separated into several categories: animals, grains, and tropical plants, all of which prevailed in different places and at different times in the ancient and pre historic world.
                                In West, East and central Africa they domesticated sorghum, penicilliary, finger millet, fonio, Native rice, yams, tuber, shea tree, and kola nut. And had herds of cattle and so on too. Agriculture is the reason why my ancestors the Bantu expanded so fast and dominate much of Sub Saharan territory today, they replaced the isolated hunter gathers who were in these regions and likely absorbed some of them too.

                                Animal domestication happened all over the continent sorry thats a fact. The Nubians used Elephant as tanks which they later traded with the Carthaginians, they also had cavalry units of militady as did the Aksumites, and Malians, they also had horses in historical West Africa they domesticated the West African Barb horse as well as the Dongola horse,
                                Also In East Africa as well as horses they domesticated the Dromedary camel. So what the hell are you talking about?? The following images are ancient rock art left by Black Africans when the Sahara was green and lush. As you can see cows are present and were actually first domesticated in a region in the nation of Chad around 5900 B.C, horses were later used. Domestication comtinued hence why cattle and other livestock were prized assets in many African cultures religious and economically. Other animals domesticated through the continent include goats the like Capra Aegagrus was introduced into Early Africa, there are indigenous ones too called Capra idex walie and the Ammotragus letlrvia. When it comes to Sheep the Fat-tailed Sheep was present in East Africa and ancient Nubia going back 1991 B.C. it was a valuable source of fat for many pastoralists all over the continent. As for cattle they domesticated the Humped Cattle, as well as the alsi the Bos Taurus and the West African N'Dama Borgou and the Ankole-Watusi and many many more were domesticated.



                                And writing if you didn't know originates without external influence in a few places. That's ancient Egypt, Mesopatamia, China and Mesoamerica. All the writing scripts we have today derive from these four places and civilizations. For example, the Hellenistic Greek script which Latin derives from derived from Phoenician which derives from ancient Egyptian hyroglphics. Without contact or interaction these scripts wouldn't exist and also Germanic, Celtics and Slavics wouldn't have writing. Most of Africa indeed didn't write, however others did develop writing due to contact and trade they had with civilizations who did just like with Europe in relation to Egypt and the Indus Valley in relation to Mesopatamia. The Ethiopians had the Ge'ez Script still used today not to mention it was one of the first scripts to be used to translate the Hebrew Bible. The Nubians had the Meroitic script And the Tuareg Berbers have the Tifanagh script still used by them today. In Nigeria there is a pictographic script called Nisibidi with thousands of symbols.

                                "Nor did the develop any of the other trappings of civilization"? Such as what? You're clearly clueless about Africa here kiddo.

                                So you're here saying we didn't even built villages let alone cities. 😂🤣 if that's the case tell me what are these historical African ruins classed as then? Stone age primitive settlements? 🤦🏾‍♂️






                                Languages lacking words for colour huh? So you've studied all African languages huh? 🤣🤣.

                                Never built proper houses? What are these then kiddo? These are indigenous african structures so save your bullshit excuses.






                                And no livestock and agricultural practices go back to prehistoric times dumbass. The plants used within agriculture were mostky of native African origin so thsts nonsense.

                                Again Nubians tamed elephants that had nothing to do with Eurasians clearly. You cant be stupid enough to believe our ancestors were simply sat around doing nothing for thousands of years now get real.

                                Dumbass Africa has various civilization some of the oldest on Earth like the early city state of Kerma and Dhar Tichitt. The continent had many other from Kush, Aksum, Wagadu, Ajuraan, Adal, Ashanti and many others I could list. Many Africans had agricultural practices and livestock. Again you're clearly clueless about this stuff.

                                African's couldn't invent the weel or a writen language. But I'm sure it has something to do with the animal.

                                  The wheel was invented in Eurasia and spread. It wasn't invented randomly by every culture that used it, it was adopted. For example, without Mesopatamia the wheel wouldn't have been incorporated by the Indus Valley civilization, without the Hyksos the Egyptians wouldn't have had the wheel either. The wheel didn't spread into Africa due to geographical barriers and also it would have been impractical in many regions due to the tsetse fly which kills livestock and animals which utilize the wheel. In suitable regions however the wheel was used the Aksumites and Nubians had the wheel as did the Garamantes. As for written language again writing originates in like 4 places without external influence. That's in China, ancient Egypt, Mesopatamia and Mesoamerica. If you weren't in direct contact with these civilizations the idea to write wouldn't have come. For example, without Phoenicians the Hellenistic Greek script which Latin derives from wouldn't have existed. And without the Romans expanding in Europe, Celtics, Germanics and Slavics would have writing either. With that said many Africans did have writing. Ethiopians had Ge'ez and Nubians Meroitic. I recommend you research a topic before typing.

Sure, you can make the argument that European settlers had the answerbook in hand but that does not diminish the point, had there been pressure for Africans to domesticate animals, they would have domesticated animals, it just happens that Africa is in a lot of ways a paradise where there's something edible around every corner.

                                                                                          Is it Racist(which is all this bullshit denial hinges on) to say; Why the fuck if you're a hunter-gatherer would you want to risk life and limb to tame a vicious angry beasts when you could just spear it and grab a fruit from the next tree?!

Zebras have been tamed and selectively bred(albeit not continuously) for over a century now.
