Funny how first you say no one knows the skin color and than you give your "opinion" as if it is fact that they were most likely of "Mediterranean type of skin color", whatever that means. The Mediterranean area is a melting pot where Africa, Asia and Europe come together. Your Eurocentric bias is obvious.

I appreciate the answer of the previous writer even though I see built in prejudice in the response. The reason for my statement is simple and clear. The base code or foundation of an organism cannot be completely deleted or erased and the later organism be of that same species as the original or pheno- type. In other words if carbon is the fundation of an organism,no mater how the later by products of that carbon are formed,re-formed,molded or re-molded, the carbon base is still there. If all humans came from Africa,then all humans will have those DNA markers. According to modern science we all have them and they are the same. Therefore all ethnic groups regardless how we dress up our words or terms that we play with, the Folsom People had strains of African DNA.

I couldn't help but respond to this message.  First before you prove Tavist Smiley wrong....Make sure you understand what he said and the nature of the conversation.  His statement was,

"1. The first Americans or Native Americans going back 13,000 BC were black! Look up the Folsom people who lived in Arizona. [NOTE: c. 9000-8000 B.C. Folsom people flourish throughout Southwest at the end of the last Ice Age. In 1863, New Mexico was partitioned in half, creating the Territory of Arizona.] 2. One of the best reasons to stop our use of the term African American and say Black. A white person who was born in Africa, who moves to America is an African American qualifies for financial aid, etc., but will get the jobs/pay privileges afforded to whites.  

3. Look up the Slavery Law of 1665 (which stayed in effect until 1968) and the Maryland Doctrine of Exclusion (1638): both laws state that blacks must be excluded from the benefits afforded whites and that blacks must remain Noncompetitive with whites, except in sports and entertainment. [See, also,, and]

4. Two white men: Bill Gates and Larry Elision, combined have more wealth than the combined wealth of all 36 million blacks in America. Civil Rights did not change the economic landscape or the balance of power in America.

5. Asians received 80% of all government minority set aside contracts. Hello!!   

6. Blacks eat more fish than whites by a 4 to 1 margin. For every dollar whites spend on fish, blacks spend $9 on fish. Fish sold wholesale for $1 will retail at $2.50 $3.00. Guess what business we should be in as Blacks?   

7. There are no black owned national cables or major network television stations. The black woman who owns our only black owned radio stations, plans to sell to white owners after hearing the deal Bob Johnson received for selling B ET. (Cathy Hughes is from OMAHA, ya'll!)   

8. There are no black owned companies on the Wall Street Stock Exchange where blacks own the majority or controlling interest of the stock.   

9. Ninety-six % of all black inmates are men. [See Angela Davis at]

10. Over the next two years 440,000 black inmates will be released from prison. The State has no place to put them as they re-enter society. A profitable business would be - Halfway houses!  

11. In 1860, 98% of all Blacks in America worked for White people. In 2001, 98% of all Blacks in America still work for white people, [meaning only 2% of Blacks are entrepreneurs].  

12. In 1860, blacks in America had a combined net worth of one half of 1% point. Guess what, in 2001, after Civil Rights, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, Shaq, NAACP, and Urban League, our combined net worth is half a percentage point.   

13. For every dollar earned by a Jewish person, that dollar touches 12 -18 Jewish hands before it leaves their community. For every dollar earned by a black person it leaves the community soon as he or she earns it. [This may be an erroneous, since Buying Black is a reality for many Sistahs and Brothas.]  

14. The last week of April 2003, in Washington, DC, black teenagers where arrested and booked for eating McDonald's on the metro subway. Cops cited the recent 5-4 court decision as the permission to arrest lawbreakers even for minor offenses.   

15. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of all hate crimes in America are against blacks. After we get through being pleased that we have carpet in our office, a secretary, our name on the door and make six figures, we do not own anything. What will happen if you miss 6 months of work without pay? All we have left our children is debt, not an inheritance. You cannot pass welfare or food stamps onto our kids as a nest egg! We are not even in the race. By the way, the word "race" hit the English language in the 16th century when Europeans held a contest to see who will win the race to gather the most wealth through exploitation of blacks.
