How about this Obama has links to Africans slaves brought to Virginia in 1619s from his mothers side. DNA samples show that his mother side DNA matches with South Cameroonian Bantus. Who are cousins to Angolans. Most slaves to Vrginia in 1617-40 were from Angola, Bantu Africans were founder generation of AAs in US. Same thing happened in New Amsterdam/NY & NJ Anglans were founder generation of AFRO-NEW YORKERS.

Despite the colonists’ attempts to deny and then destroy African linguistic heritage, more recent work, most notably by Joseph Holloway and Winifred Vass, suggests otherwise and they are able to trace a number of surviving Africanisms back to two ethnic groupings in Africa from which at least 70% of the ancestors of African Americans came from, the Mande and Bantu. The Africans from the Senegambia region (Mande speakers) were part of the greatest and most advanced of the Sudanic empires and thus were often enslaved as artisans and craftsman. According to Holloway and Vass, both the Mande and Wolof slaves were more often employed in the housework on the plantations and thus had a greater influence on white American culture. Many American children for instance would have learned African folk tales from their “mammies”, tales such as Brer Rabbit, Brer Wolf, Brer Fox, and the Uncle Remus stories which were originally Wolof folk tales brought to America by the Hausa, Fulani and Mandinka.

On the other hand, the Bantu slaves from Angola and Congo regions were employed primarily as field slaves. As a result, their impact on white culture was minimal, but isolation allowed their culture to develop without as much external interference. According to Vass and Holloway, their African past was thus able to develop into African American cooking, music (jazz, blues, spirituals, gospel), dance, language, religion, philosophy, and the arts.

As a result of both the Mande and Bantu influences through the slave experience in the U.S., Vass and Holloway compile a list of Africanisms that have entered into contemporary American English but a close examination of these words reveal a continuing attempt to culturally disparage the African heritage. Take for instance the word “banjo” which is traced to a West African stringed musical instrument called an “mbanza”. The banjo was apparently a popular musical instrument among the black population until the 1840s when it was adopted by minstrel shows who made it part of the black face acts after which it became a symbol of ridicule.

Africans only sold prisioners from RIVAL kingdoms. Africans didn't see themselves as belonging to a single 'kind' and even today they don't.
Is everybody seeing how easy it is to refute the nonsense of whites?

Theres Igbo surnames like EKEDO, that name is found among JAPANESE ALSO AND HAS DIFFERENT MEANING TO AFRICAN IGBOS. Again Ibo Island in Mozambique is inhabited by Swahili people, who are a mixture of Mozambiquen Bantus and Arabs.

If we follow ur LIES about Igbos colonising Angola,Congo,Mozambique etc..then we MIGHT AS WELL SAY AFRO BRAZILIANS ARE MAJORITY IGBOS. Which is lot of RUBBISH, AS ETHNICITY OF A HUMAN CAN BE TRACED USING DNA, PHYSICAL FEATURES,TOOTH and bone FORMATION etc..

Please Igbos if ya'll want the WORLD to repsect u STOP SPREADING LIES ON THE INTERNET. Everyone in the WORLD knows who makes 419 its not a Fulani,Yoruba, Hausa its a IGBOMAN.

HA!!!HA!!Looking at ur DRESS CODE the Chinese fabric and the red hat worn by man. Im waiting for Igbos to say theyr from CHINA.

Please tell us IGBOS COLONISED hole of Africa. Whats the Igbo population by the 20 million people vs 1 BILLION.

Refugee boy this is BLUES brought to America by MANDE PEOPLE from the Mali empire. Pls note that AA from Georgia sings in English while the LEGEND ALI FARKA TOURE sing in his native tongue.

IGBOS WERE NEVER MAJORITY IN USA, Biafrans made 18.6% as I have shown u million times. In all Nigerians slaves sent to US made 20%(Biafra 18.6%+Bight of Benin/Slave Coast 1.4%). As u can see the YORUBA were few in US slave population, yes they were present in Louisiana and Mississippi valley area but not majority. While Igbos were only prevalent in VA, most of their females slaves mated with other African groups like Mande, Akan, Bantus etc..to give birth to modern Afro Virginia.

If u wanna see which AFRICAN ETHNICITIES were sent where pls visit this link. It shows everything from North, Central and South America, even West Indies.

Note:The some records are incomplete. Let me complete the puzzle for ya'll.
VIRGINIA
Was dominated by Biafrans at 38% and rivals were Senegambia 26.5% and Bantus 20%, then Gold Coast 16%.

SOUTH CAROLINA-GEORGIA
Dominated by Senegambia 43%
Angola-Congo 40%
Then Gold Coast 16%

LOUISIANA
Louisiana was majority SENEGAMBIAN 1719-1760 then replaced by Angola-Congo Bantus onwards 1760-1820.
Senegambia slaves in Louisiana were 30% overall and Bantus 35.6% in 1800s and around 40% in later stages. The process of removal of Mandes by Bantus in Louisiana and South carolina-Georgia is called CONGOLIZATION by Dr Kelvin Roberts in his book.
