This sad phenomenon is do to the tremendous lag time between the
discovery of a scientific fact and it's eventual incorporation into
The fact is that every piece of scientific evidence has proven that
we are all one species, and that we originated in the Rift valley
area of what is now modern day Kenya.
Every Homo-sapien's on the planet is of African origin.
We are all literally Africans.
I prefer the term American-African myself, where you are is more
important than where you came from.
Don't let my pale skin fool you, and don't let your's fool you.
We are all originally from Africa.
