Rappers and athletes constantly being depicted as the only models of black success does quite the mind fuck on young people. Also since blacks are a recently freed people, they have no greater history of achievement to fall back on.

Having no history makes people vulnerable. History is like a cultural save point. When things go bad, culture can backtrack and people can restart back on the right path. Without history, a people is easily destroyed.

They would have to have invented a written language to have a history

Depending on where they were from, they may have had one but Arab and African traders were indiscriminate in who they sold.

No one is stopping them from putting in lip plates. They can go back to that... Culture... At any time.

Blacks aren't racially homogenous and didn't all arrive from the same place at the same time. Point of reference is unknown for most. Most blacks chose to adopt white culture until jews started aggressively portraying it as a bad thing in the 1970s.
