Yeah I been knew about that. But since there is no official His-Story records to support Africans being here, they just threw it under the rug and gave Columbus the credit. I also heard Chinese and Vikings traveled to America too

Well, unless it's validated by the Pale Skin European, no one will accept it as truth anyway.
So..what's the big deal?
You can find all that information at the Library..
This is nothing new...it has been on record since the Europeans first arrived here and then some.
But, when a dark skinned individual states it or has it in writing...since 1929....no one wants to believe it...why is that?????

Pale skin people will never admit that Columbus was not the first person to find America he is far from the first person to find Americas, he is a major part of pale skin people history to deny his claim will just expose one of many lies set buy pale skin people history.

"that is still a theory because of mud houses, but in south America they have tons of stone heads and many other artifacts that link it back to north African ancient Cush tribes and related tribes scattered every where, follow link they came before Columbus see for yourself and judge."

I haven't read the article but I looked at it, and I'm pretty sure this is what I read about in a few of my World/African history books. Its pretty known, but they SAY he sailed off the coast of West Africa, heading West, with all of these many ships and women and servants, but no one ever heard from him again. Thats where African history stops because he never returned. However, if he really took as many ships as he did and people, then its very possible that he hit the shores of somewhere and met with Native people. Thats not hard to believe at all. Natives didn't keep records of that stuff, but MANY people in history came to Americas over time and some even have evidence of trade with some of the Natives. Its just that Europeans were the first to STAY and bridge ties between the "old world" and "new world". So they are known for that part.

So this shouldn't shock many people.
The only people to "discover" America were the Asians who crossed the land mass from Siberia about 20-30,000 years ago.

This is a very interesting article. Thanks for sharing the information. Christopher Columbus is a thief who is always taking the credit for other people's work and i don't like the man. He is also a murderer who brought death, violence and pain to the Native Americans !. This article has certainly placed Columbus in the shades.

It's nice to hear about African contributions to the Americas as well as other people as these source of information is hardly written in history books.

You most consider the source of all things. The Columbous expedition was an extension of Britiain. The settlers as we know them were a British colony. Therefore when arriving to the Americas Columbus wrote back to his constituents that he had "DISCOVERED", because they had not known.
Giving light to the situation that blacks in America today are totally indoctrinated and submerged in a European system that does not suffice to universal knowledge.
The entire scope of historical trends concerning Afro Peoples and othe peoples of color should spark an awakening and an INTELLECTUAL revolt of all ethnic peoples. The "Americans" are the natives so called "INDIANS" (another example of insufficient european doctrine) the European is colonizing a land and the African is still an African no matter where he is or whether digested he has the realities or not.

Bro were you there do u know anything other than the lies that empower the big egos of the sons of man to talk ainciant like as if to say the European foot print isn't overwhelmingly distructive to the earth, those who can trace there heritage to beginnings of the past don't distort the facts. Thank you.

Its actually another finding saying that the asian dna was Negrito or Aboriginals. Yet other Asian came from Mongolia if I can remember as well as a fleet of modern looking asian who came looking for a there lost people who said to came here. Moors came and Berbsrs as Barros put me on game that the Gaunches Dna match Berbers. Now this dont say if the Berbers came during there Moorish conquest period but dont rule it out. There been tales of Mansa Musa coming here but like fam said people dont believe us
