QUESTION Are the Southern Sudanese Christians descendants of the original Northern Christians present in Nubia and Makuria?
I speak with a South Sudanese who study history in the United States and who tolmd me exactly this. Are the Southern Sudanese Christians descendants of the original Northern Christians present in Nubia and Makuria until the Islamization of the region in the 14th-17th centuries? I know South Sudan has a Christian majority but are the South Sudanese Christians really related to the original Christians of the North of the country?

WAR: News/Politics Bloody Hands: Khartoum Massacre
The generals waging Sudan’s civil war right now already had civilian blood on their hands before the outbreak of hostilities - a lot. Both the army’s al-Burhan and the RSF’s Hemeti are implicated in the Khartoum massacre of anti-coup protesters in 2019.

DISCUSSION Is it time to (temporarily) relocate Sudan's capital?
Specifically talking about administrative services provided by federal ministries. It's clear this war may not be resolved soon and people in areas with no fighting are struggling because Khartoum cannot function.
So should the government move civilian services and federal ministries to another city? And if so, which city is best positioned for this role?

QUESTION (pre?)marriage process in sudanese culture
I’ve been recommended to someone through family friend connections, nothing much has happened since so I’m not in contact with him yet but I’d like to know what to expect if it goes any further, and for future reference if needed (which I feel like it will be ). I’ve had a few proposals but none of them went any further, so I have zero clue about how the talking stage goes, and I never have these conversations with my parents. I lived in Europe my whole life (with the Sudan visit here and there) and genuinely didn’t know much about the marriage process in Sudanese culture until about 2 years ago, I just made the assumption that it’s all according to Islam and imagined it’s as simple as that.
For people who are more in touch with the culture and/or have past experience and knowledge, - what kind of things should I ask and look out for? and what kind of things should I deem as a warning sign (particularly in a Sudanese man lol)? - how does the خطوبة stage actually work in Sudan? From what I seen it’s very different to how it “islamically” is or should be. And what do they see as the difference between ta3arof and khotooba. - how involved are the families and in what ways? - and kind of carrying on from the first question, how do I truly get to know someone who I’ve never met and lives in another country? For me, I always have liked someone because of how they carried themselves around others and around me, so i feel unsure because such a big aspect I look out for is missing, how do people navigate this? - a bit of a personal one, how and when did you decide to end things with the person you were getting to know/engaged with?
If you can answer any of those I’d really appreciate it! I’m also aware that different regions in Sudan may have slightly varying customs, but I think my questions are generic and they’re more to help me because I’ll learn the important things along the way which is fine.

السلام عليكم from your Somali brother. I'm very interested in Sudanese history and politics, I'd also like to know more about the unfortunate terrible conflict that Sudan is facing. I hope it will end soon, Sudan is one of my favorite countries in Africa. I'm also learning Arabic so I'm asking if you have any suggestions for YouTube channels in Arabic (possibly with English subtitles) or in English to learn more about Sudan. Thanks, may god keep the sudanese people safe
CULTURE/HISTORY History of Math & Technology in Sudan
Hi, hope all is well,
I'm looking for good book recommendations on Mathematical culture in Sudan.
Most of the literature I have focuses on Egyptian history, but I'm more interested in topics more intimate to Sudan. (Kerma Defuffa, Meroe Trigonometry Sundials, Makuria Dongola architecture etc...)

DISCUSSION Sudanese community needs to do better fr
The war in Sudan is tragic and we, as Sudanese need to unite regardless of tribe, ethnic group, or religion because we want a good life for our people. We need to dismantle the racism in our community. Although we are victims of racism in the Arab world, we still treat refugees from South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Eritrea in the same way. Our community keeps on talking about “Ethiopians are our brothers and sisters” and “we love Eritrea” but then when Ethiopians come to our countries wearing traditional clothing, we make rude comments like “why are you wearing that like a ‘habash’?”
I’ve heard Eritreans tell me about how Eritreans in Sudan have been insulted and robbed by some racist Sudanese people and yelling “f*ck Habash”. It’s disgusting how this is an issue in our community.
The ironic thing is how we constantly complain about racism in Egypt but we treat refugees the same way. Not to mention, we are racist to other tribes as well. We literally lost South Sudan because of the racism and marginalization they faced. And we need to stop sugarcoating and saying “oh it was just Omar Al Bashir” because there are many Sudanese who are racist to South Sudanese as well. I know most of us are against this racism but there is still a significant minority that is causing all of these issues in Sudan.
There are people in the Arab world who call us “A7san Nas” (the best people). How about we actually try to live up to this title by accepting and uniting every tribe in Sudan, accept, welcome, and love every refugee that comes to Sudan regardless of where they’re from, speaking out against anything bad that happens in Sudan regardless of where it is, and respect everyone regardless if they identify as Arab or African (it’s their identity, not yours).
There is a story of Sudanese shopkeepers putting up signs saying “No Egyptians allowed”. Listen, I don’t care what your opinion on Egypt is, racism against Egyptians is not okay either. They’re humans as well and we need to openly condemn what those shopkeepers did.
I understand, as Sudanese people, we are victims of racism in Egypt, Saudi, Lebanon, and the rest of the Arab world, but in no way, shape, or form does this allow us to be racist.
A literal genocide was carried out in Darfur and people in Khartoum just saw that, said “oh no” and moved on with their day-to-day lives. People constantly excuse this behaviour with “Darfur is far away from Khartoum” but this excuse is simply lazy. We could have at least protested against what was happening and spread awareness. We literally have Sudanese Armed Forces and RSF in Yemen rn and we move on with our lives. We see East African refugees in Khartoum treated like garbage and we don’t say anything. The “oh it happened far away” excuse is just lazy.
I’m proud Sudanese. I love my country and my culture. But I can still love my country and still criticize the things that happen in society. Our society is messed up and I know MOST Sudanese are AGAINST this racism in our society, but we are still quiet about it and we need to start talking. We need to silence this loud racist minority, fix our reputation, accept all tribes, refugees, citizens of Sudan, make peace and friendship with our southern neighbour, stop hating on all Egyptians, THEN we can let people call us “A7san Nas”.
Here are some amazing articles talking about this issue (they may have been posted a couple years ago but they are still accurate today):
We got to do better.
If you’re Arab or African, Muslim or Christian, Beja, Fur, Zaghawa, Nubian, Rashaida, Falatta, or any other tribe in Sudan, you’re Sudanese, let’s stop this racism and unite. If you are Ethiopian, Eritrean, South Sudanese, Egyptian, Arab or East African, you’re my brother or sister.
Pray for Sudan 🇸🇩❤️

DISCUSSION Explain why Darfur is always getting targeted like I’m 12.
I’m not Sudanese (I’m AA) so I have very little context about this. But I’ve been praying for you guys and also trying to keep up with the war and find organizations and resources aiding those affected that I can donate to and spread the word about (if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments).
I’m hearing and seeing a lot of stuff on social media that’s happening in Darfur with people crossing into Chad with gunshot wounds, entire villages being burnt to the ground, men being rounded up and killed, women being raped en masse, etc. I know things are crazy in Khartoum, but why does it seem like every major Sudanese crisis revolves around Darfur?
Like if the war is largely two wannabe dictators having a military cockfight with the citizens caught in the crossfire, why is so much of the brutality concentrated in Darfur? I know I’m missing a lot of context but it just always seems like every little thing is an excuse to terrorize Darfur.
