The OLMEC CARVED THIS HEAD - ever saw a human with eyes this large and spaced so far apart? But lets go with the flow and accept that this is a representation of a sub-saharan African Negroid seafarer who reached Central America as we CAN prove they were in the region 700 years ago...but NOT 3200 - 2,400 years ago when the Olmec civilization existed. ....but who says only the ancient Olmecs could have carved these? You cannot carbon-date stone - only GUESS to it's age....it could have just as easily been carved 700 years ago when we do know for a FACT that Negroid seafarers DID reach the Caribbean Sea....even though below I can show you photos of modern day Olmec descendants who have the SAME thick lips and broad noses you see on the stone heads....see below:
THE OLMEC CARVED THIS WRESTLER - does he look African Negroid to you? Or Mongoloid?
THE OLMEC CARVED THIS JADE MASK - does this face look African Negroid to you? Or Mongoloid?
A lot of Afrocentrists have a cherished THEORY that the entire Olmec civilization was an African one - just because of Colossal heads that resemble African warriors - so let me give the benefit of the doubt that they WERE representations of Africans who reached the Americas - but I can more prove 700 years ago - whereas you can only offer conjecture for 3200 years ago to cover your fairy tale idea that the 'Olmec Civilization was a Negroid one'....This is a simple fact overlooked when one WANTS to believe in something but CANNOT prove it, but they cannot explain either why 99% of ALL the OTHER Olmec artifacts (as you can see in the 3 videos below) DO NOT have anything that remotely hints at anything African Negroid - only the usual Amerindian culture of Meso-America, neither have DNA tests of Olmec descendants today revealed ANY genetic connection to Africa, only to Asia and the Mongoloid race.
Furthermore - you cannot carbon-date stone carvings so to say they show 'proof' that Africans reached Central America thousands of years ago at the time of the Olmec Civilization 3,200 years ago till 2,400 years ago - is just wishful thinking, for all we know these heads were carved 700 years ago when the Malian fleet reached the Caribbean Sea (a fact we CAN prove!)...humans still carve stone today, they did not stop thousands of years ago....and one would think that since no human remains of Olmec graves have even shown any DNA OTHER than Mongoloid - that these silly claims would stop by Afrocentrists. Logic should tell you that if the ENTIRE Olmec Civilization was Negroid - the scientifically tested human remains of the Olmecs would have to be of Negroid DNA....BUT THEY ARE NOT!
What bothers me, is that Afro-centrists feel greatly offended when Euro-centrists claim that ANY African achievement as their own ....yet they cannot see that they are doing the SAME thing (laying wholesale claim to Amerindian achievements) as their own as well...what you do not like done to yourself - do NOT do to others!
Why is it not good enough to celebrate the fact that African sailors reached the Americas 181 years before Columbus did which we can PROVE by documentation and genetic affinities between Malians and Garifuna from Saint Vincent Island (Originally, then shipped by the British to Central America)...Why do you need to infer some sense of racial superiority and theorize (because you have no CONCRETE proof) that 'Africans arrived in the Americas thousands of years ago, and conquered and educated the Amerindian natives - and built ALL the great civilizations in the Americas' (Andean, Meso-American and Mid-West and South East America)....you honestly believe this and do NOT consider yourselves to be just as racist as the Europeans who claimed 'Egypt was so great it could only have been created by white people'...because that is EXACTLY what you are saying to every Amerindian person when you espouse these extremist Afro-centric views of the history of the Western Hemisphere...that 'Amerindians were too stupid to achieve all these wonders themselves - so we Africans had to teach them'.
I am convinced (because there exists PROOF) that Africans from Mali reached the Lesser Antilles (in 1311 - 181 years BEFORE Columbus), traded and battled as far north as the Greater Antilles (as Spanish accounts told to them by Taino recorded), with some leaving to return to Mali (only 1 boat is recorded as ever having returned to Mali) with most presumably dying en-route back to Africa - but some remaining behind in the Caribbean who had taken Amerindian wives of the Igneri-Arawaks (because in 1311 the Kalina had not entered the Caribbean from South America yet so the new people called 'Kalinago' did not yet exist) and created a happier new life in these paradise islands - which were far more beautiful places to live than Mali - staying in the Lesser Antilles and becoming a new people..the Garifuna, for anyone to think that literally MILLIONS of Amerindians (estimated to be 100 Million - or 20% of the entire population of the world in 1492) could have been 'conquered' from South America to North America (yes, Van Sertima would want you to believe that 'Black Africans moved up from the Amazon conquering and civilizing from the Inca Empire to Eastern USA's Cahokhia mound builders...and many black people actually believe this nonsense) by hundreds or at highest possibly a few thousand Africans - is to truly live in a magical fairy tale realm, even the Malian Africans had the same weapons as Amerindians (bows, arrows, spears etc.), and Europeans with superior guns and cannons who came 181 years after had a near impossible time to defeat them, only the diseases of Europe did the job for them by killing 90% of Amerindians before war was required to 'subdue' the rest.
Undoubtedly subsequent escaped/runaway Negroid African slaves DID add to the Garifuna people, but I maintain the origins of Garifuna were NOT some 16th century wrecked European slave ship, but the documented 1311 Malian fleets arrival in the Lesser Antilles (from whence the Tainos said they traded with them FROM).
There is even evidence now that Phonecians ALSO reached the Americas before Columbus - and that could ALSO explain why the Olmec ALSO carved a Caucasoid looking head....I have reached the far more logical and less racially insulting conclusion - that the Olmec and other Amerindian first nations of the Americas - received both Negroid AND Caucasoid seafarers in their time and recorded these 'different-looking' people they encountered in stone....but the FACT remains - the Mongoloids were the first peoples in the Americas, not sub-Saharan Africans or Europeans...they surely arrived in the Americas BEFORE Columbus, but NOT before the Mongoloids.
Besides African - there is ALSO undeniable evidence of Vikings, Polynesians and Romans - reaching the Americas before Columbus, but none of these voyages led to a lasting contact between the old world and the new, they survived here for some time - then were killed-off by the Mongoloid natives...so even though we all loathe Columbus, we have to admit that this villain is the only one that had a lasting impact on the history of the world in terms of the western hemisphere.
