Reply to "Hi, my name is Shawn"

The first history of Ireland was written around 1600 by an Irish monk, and it talks about the origanal Irish as being from Africa. So before my Irish history, I had an African one, a long time ago. thanks for listening.---Shawn

I read somewhere about African migration to Ireland...if that is what it was called at the time.

Maybe that's where the term 'black Irish' comes from.

I also read in 'The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality' by Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop that Africans settled in that part of Europe now known as Paris, France. He reports they were called 'Parisi', and that thus the name 'Paris'.

Then there are the 'black' Russians.

And 'The Black Madonna' revered by the Poles with statues all over the world.

It appears that the DNA process told you (gave you a list of names) a list of peoples to choose from, or spread yourself over.

I am certain I would find the same kind of distribution of ancestors across western Africa.

That will not provide me with identity.

I deserve better than that.

Certainly, my children do.

I defined me and mine.

Americans who are African American.

African American-Americans.

There is room enough for all of us.
