Columbus did not discover the America’s, its absurd to discover full blown civilizations of people who have been living on a continent for thousands of years.

 Supporting evidence also shows the African intimate contact with this part of the world can not be denied. Columbus’s mishap began a long story of pillage and plunder that continues to this very day. But there is overwhelming evidence that African Civilizations made contact with Native Americans and ancient Native American Cultures long before Columbus landed in the Caribbean in 1492.

To be fair and balance, critics of this Theory say:

Evidence that Olmec and Mesoamerican culture were influenced by African cultures is extremely unconvincing.  Although, given how advanced the Kush Empire and the Mali Empire were it is plausible they made their way by sea to the Americas.  Any map of oceanic currents shows that there is a strong current that flows from the Ivory Coast of West Africa, straight to the Gulf Coast of Mexico.  Ivan Van Sertima makes sure the reader is aware of this many times.  However, it does not make sense to claim that a boatload, or even a fleet of Africans could drastically influence the practices and traditions of a civilization that lasted almost 1,000 years.  If they did have such a huge influence, then the evidence would be obvious.  Van Sertima is certainly working very hard to attempt to draw cultural similarities when if his theory were true it would be easily done.  If the Egyptians did spread their cultural traditions then it would be traditions of their own time, not of Egyptians 1,000 years previous to them.  Not only is this theory unrealistic but also it is also insulting to the Mesoamerican cultures.

Please provide any evidene that supports either of the two theories.

Unlike Fox and other mainstream media ... Let's keep it 100.

You see how corporate media works. The mouthpiece stated as fact, "those bills have been paid", referring to the large industries and businesses that have not had their water shut off for non payment.

Neocolonialism (also Neo-colonialism or Neo-imperialism) is the geopolitical practice of using capitalism, business globalization, and cultural imperialism to influence a country, in lieu of either direct military control or indirect political control, i.e. imperialism and hegemony. The term neo-colonialism was coined by Ghanaian president Kwame Nkrumah, to describe the socio-economic and political control that can be exercised economically, linguistically, and culturally, whereby promotion of the culture of the neo-colonist country facilitates the cultural assimilation of the colonised people and thus opens the national economy to the multinational corporations of the neo-colonial country.

In post-colonial studies, the term neo-colonialism describes the domination-praxis (social, economic, cultural) of countries from the developed world in the respective internal affairs of the countries of the developing world; that, despite the decolonisation that occurred in the aftermath of the Second World War (1939–45), the (former) colonial powers continue to apply existing and past international economic arrangements with their former colony countries, and so maintain colonial control. A neo-colonialism critique can include de facto colonialism (imperialist or hegemonic), and an economic critique of the disproportionate involvement of modern capitalist business in the economy of a developing country, whereby multinational corporations continue to exploit the natural resources of the former colony; that such economic control is inherently neo-colonial, and thus is akin to the imperial and hegemonic varieties of colonialism practiced by the United States and the empires of Great Britain, France, and other European countries, from the 16th to the 20th centuries. wiki

Since there is a 1887 Drawing by McAdams about the Cahokia, which was the largest and most influential urban settlement in the Mississippian culture, which developed advanced societies across much of what is now the Southeastern United States, beginning more than 500 years before European contact, Why was I only taught about Columbus, and not about this native history.

For those interested, the Cahokia's population at its peak in the 1200s was among the largest cities in the world, and its ancient population would not be surpassed by any city in the United States until the late 18th century. Today, Cahokia Mounds is considered the largest and most complex archaeological site north of the great Pre-Columbian cities.  Its located in Southern Illinois. The original site contained 120 earthen mounds over an area of six square miles, of which 80 remain today. To achieve that, thousands of workers over decades moved more than an "estimated 55 million cubic feet of earth in woven baskets to create this network of mounds and community plazas. Monks Mound, for example, covers 14 acres (5.7 ha), rises 100 ft (30 m), and was topped by a massive 5,000 sq ft (460 m2) building another 50 ft (15 m) high."

There is also some African Influence here

Below is the official site of this area (Now a national park)

I've been on top of Monk's Mound (shown here) several times. They now have a interpretive museum there as well. Well worth the trip.

Interviewer pulled a slight of hand, steering the conversation towards the comfortable, acceptance of personal responsibility. I sensed other corrective therapies is where JB wanted to go. Always admired his efforts to find a way.
