THE FIRST BLACKS OF THE AMERICAS ARRIVED ON THEIR OWN, NOT IN EUROPEAN
SLAVESHIPS.


Not a single European nation, tribe or kingdom is responsible for the
presence of Blacks in the Americas.  The very first people of
Negroid/African race arrived in the Americas over thirty thousand years
ago, according to National Geographic's article on THE PEOPLING OF
AMERICA and the revelation that more than fifty skulls representing
Africans and people of Africoid-Aboriginal type similar to that of
Melanesia and Australia were found in Brazil.

Furthermore, according to the Gladwin Thesis, the first Blacks may have
arrived in the Americas as early as about 75,000 B.C. and they were
called "Dimunitive Blacks" or people similar to the Pygmies of Africa
and Agta of the Philipines.  A Black Australoid type, an Black African
type, A Black Melanesian type also migrated to the Americas according to
the Gladwin Thesis (see the text, "A History of the African-Olmecs,"
pub. by 1stBooks Library, www.1stbooks.com

One of the most ancient Black nations of the Americas lives right here
in the State of Louisiana, they are called the Waschitaw Nation and
before the Louisiana Territory was illegally sold by France for three
cents an acrem, knowing that the Waschitaw owned about one million
square miles, the entire region belonged to the Moundbuilding Waschitaw
who were recognized by both Spain and France.  Yet, the hunt for Black
slaves in the Americas and for the "Descendants of Ham" who were to be
enslaved brought about the taking of the lands of the Waschitaw and
other Black nations and the enslavement of many of them.

According to I. Rafinesque (American Friends, 1833 "Black Nations of
America,' a number of Black nations existed in North America and when
Louis and Clarke explored west of the Mississippi, some were seen.  Two
well known Black nations were the Jamassee who had a sizable kindgom in
what is today Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Northern Florida.
The Black Calafians of California (Black Mojave) also owned lots of land
and fought with the settlers up to the 1880's (see the pictures at
http://community.webtv.net/paulnubiaempire "BLACK CIVILIZATIONS OF
ANCIENT AMERICA."  Many others existed as well and they are all listed
in the logs of some of the very early explorers who were either French
or Spanish, or fur trappers.

So, the idea that the white man brought Blacks to this continent after
Columbus is one of the biggest lies of history. The fact is they were
looking for slaves in Brazil even before Columbus and the saw Blacks
along the South American coast, in the Caribbean and in parts of the
Southern U.S.

As for Black civilization in the Americas, it is a fact that the Olmec
or Mende-Shi, are of African origins and they contributed to the
building of the Olmec civilization in Central America and Mexico.  This
occurred from about 3113 B.C. to about 400 A.D.

While about half a million slaves were brought to the U.S. and many
millions to Latin America and the Caribbean, there were large numbers of
Blacks in the Americas who had been here for thousands of years and who
also fell victim to slave raiders and invaders.

Read more on this from the text, "A History of the African-Olmecs," pub.

other Blacks of the Americas who existed here before Columbus
