Explain what exactly? Humans from different cultures have been braiding their hair since prehistoric times, and the fact that the Inca mummmies hair is straight as an Asians doesn't help your case for any 'Africans' being in the Americas prior to Columbus era. By the way, dingleberry, the DNA from the Inca mummy also debunks your 'Africans in the Americas prior to Columbus era, since Scientists at TIGR examined mitochondrial DNA D loop sequences and found that Hypervariable region 1 (HV1) was consistent with Haplogroup A, one of the four Native American gene groups. Sorry you loose. Nice playing with ya.Oh this is still not a debate but this is for that @sshole AE who thinks he got this info down to a DNA science. Ha!
Yes those are what we call finger braids in the African american community. It takes a trained hand to do these braids and you won't go to a Peruvian or Caucasian hair shop for those, but I know where you can get them done to this day on 125th street in harlem by the Africans for like $200. Ha!
This is still not a debate! Shut up and learn!
The next post I put up should get more interesting.
Origin of Haplogroup A (mtDNA):
Haplogroup A is believed to have arisen in Asia some 30,000-50,000 years before present. Its ancestral haplogroup was Haplogroup N.
Its highest frequencies are among Indigenous peoples of the Americas, its largest overall population is in East Asia, and its greatest variety (which suggests its origin point) is in East Siberia. Thus, it might have originated in and spread from the Far East or Central Asia.
