i'm a ju.
now looms you mentioned this DNA
"the mande are just one of several major tribes that represent those taken to the new world. for the u.s. the highest mande admixture i've seen was 19%"
first I will address this nonesense
I guess you have been watching Isaiah Washington and anchorman, Ron Claiborne discover their African roots on Good Morning America http://www.youtube.com/embed/lzOPFntRymk...
HUH looms well did you look at the video?
did you hear what Dr Bruce Jackson, is saying in the video. Well looms HE is a REAL DNA SCIENTIST You are not a scientist neither is anyone else on this thread
Did you hear him say it is impossible to trace ones roots to a particular tribe or people in Africa? IMPOSSIBLE
so in fact a REAL scientist said that it was IMPOSSIBLE to trace ones roots to a particular tribe or people in Africa.
so this statement is FALSE "the mande are just one of several major tribes that represent those taken to the new world. for the u.s. the highest mande admixture i've seen was 19'
hey looms lets ask another qualified REAL DNA expert
As medical anthropologist Sandra Lee of Stanford University said
""Proving parenthood is relatively simple. You get half of your DNA from each parent. That same equation makes it very difficult to prove deep lineage. You get only half of the DNA from each generation. After three generations, that's a half of a half of a half. You might not be carrying any identifiable DNA from any one specific ancestor."
Lee recommends that, given the current state of DNA science, family stories and public records are still the best tools for tracking ancestry.
So lets get down to some real history
Ok looms lets go back to Bellos statement
Bello’s statement: he told to Clapperton regarding the people who spread across the SOODAN, in the interior of West Africa who were enslaved.

" The inhabitants of this province (Yarba) it is supposed originated from the remnant of the children of Canaan, who were of the tribe of Nimrod. The cause of their establishment in the West of Africa was, as it is stated, in consequence of their being driven by Yar-rooba, son of Kahtan, out of Arabia to the Western Coast between Egypt and Abyssinia.
From that spot they advanced into the interior of Africa, till they reach Yarba where
they fixed their residence. On their way they left in every place they stopped at, a tribe of their own people.
Thus it is supposed that all the tribes of the Soudan who inhabit the mountains are originated from them as also are the inhabitants of Ya-ory.
Upon the whole, the people of Yarba are nearly of the same description as those of Noofee (Nupe)
did you read that he said that these people came from the EAST
and he mentioned a man named nimrud
This is what he said about who he was
"In the name Lamurudu (or Namurudu) we can easily recognize a dialectic modification of the name Nimrod. Who this Nimrod
was, whether Nimrod surnamed " the strong," the son of Hasoiil, or Nimrod the " mighty hunter " of the Bible, or whether both
descriptions belong to one and the same person, we cannot tell, but this extract not only confirms the tradition of their origin but
also casts a side light on the legend"
So looms why did he say this if it was not true?
