I'm glad you have graciously allowed me the last word on this, I
appreciate it very much.
What do you want me to acknowledge that there were Africans in Portugal in
1400? Of course there were -- and they may have been the very people that
accompanied deAyllon, deSoto or Pardo and mixed with the local Indians in
the early 1500s. So what? That was my point -- they then became Indians,
like the WHITE Ross family who are now called Indians. There is a
difference between acknowledging African DNA that could go back a couple of hundred
generations and making up a history for these people.
They said they were Portuguese -- over and over -- in case after case, all
over this country! Does anyone really believe that a person of African
descent could stand before a judge and jury and convince them he wasn't
African? That these poor people paid off their neighbors, tax men, sheriffs,
judges and juries? They said they were Portuguese and you Joy have not
produced one scintilla of evidence to prove they were anything else except a DNA
test that proves they had an African ancestor sometime in the last 300,000
