OLMECS ARE NICAN TLACA HERITAGE
Confronting The Racist Afrocentric Attacks On Our Heritage
This discussion is pretty much like the ignorant “debate” on whether evolution is real or whether all of the races of humanity are equal in intelligence.
Ignorant, racist, or stupid ideas like these that question proven facts are usually promoted by people who have not studied the subject and who INSIST on NOT letting facts, truth, logic, or evidence stop them from presenting their “opinions” against evolution or the equality of intelligence in the human race.
The evidence is all in on evolution and on the equality of intelligence in human beings, and on the issue of Olmec civilization having their origins here and not coming from Africa. You would think that would be the end of that. But again, facts, science, evidence, logic, and common sense don’t stop the “Olmecs were African” promoters, not anymore than the “no evolution” and “whites are superior” people.
The problem has to do with the constant publishing of “They Came Before Columbus”, a book that has been debunked, like the “Mayans were people from outerspace” nonsense that Von Daniken promoted in “Chariots of the Gods” in the 60’s and 70’s. And then there was further attacks on our people’s intelligence with “Aztecs were from Atlantis”, The Ten Tribes of Israel founded all the civilizations of “the Indians” (referring to us, they still haven’t figured out that Columbus never reached India). People still insist on calling us Indians. They will NOT let facts get in the way with what they have been told in the schools of white supremacy.
Another face of the many debasings of our heritage is the Carlos Castañeda books which were all proven a fraud. It was in Time Magazine, newspapers around the world. Castañeda made a public apology and confessed his frauds. He confessed after a book was printed showing in detail the fraud of all of the Castañeda books. You would think that that would be the end of that. The problems is that the book proving Castañeda a fraud is out of print, but the Castañeda books are still selling in the millions with people believing every lie to be the truth. New Age desecrations of our theology and culture have been the result of Castañeda’s fraud. He is now dead, but his lies live on as “New Age” because people are ignorant of the fraud he perpetrated.
With Ivan Van Sertima’s book “They Came Before Columbus” we have a similar problem.
This “debate” as it is being called, has an endless list of nonsensical and pseudoscience lies and frauds behind it. But let’s just cut to the chase without taking on the lies one by one. Let’s just use logic.
If West Africans were so great to have taught us civilization, where in west or central or south Africa did they do such great things as our civilizations in B.C. times? There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in B.C. times of any civilization in those areas. For us on our continent we had Supe/Caral (3500 B.C.), Olmec (2300-1800 B.C. beginnings), Zapotec (600 B.C.), Maya (600 B.C.), Teotihuacan (100 B.C). There is ZERO evidence of anything even remotely resembling our civilizations in Africa in B.C times, there were NO CIVILIZATIONS in west-central-south Africa in B.C times.
So let’s move on to the Egyptians, who Afroncentrics claim as part of their heritage. If Egyptians did come to civilize us (for which there is zero proof) why didn't they think West Africans were intelligent enough to bestow their Egyptian influence there in B.C. times on that part of Africa? Why would they come all the way to us when they had all these other people much closer to them? Was there nothing to interest them in the much closer West Africa, South Africa, or Central Africa? But they came all the way to us, to share with us, knowing that we were intelligent enough to start civilizations, with the start up kits they gave us (they must have brought us corn, calendar systems, writing, mathematics, concept zero, theology, and other things that didn't exist anywhere in Africa, but they brought it to us anyway, somehow, but didn’t share it with fellow Egyptians or with the rest of Africa).
Must be true that Egyptians didn't think much of the intelligence of West-Central-South Africans, since not one civilization before B.C. came out of West, Central, or South Africa, and nothing related to Egyptians, not in B.C. times. This is where the ancestors of the people who are trying to steal our Olmec Heritage came from. You can not give what you do not have!
Too bad they can't point to ANYTHING B.C. in their ancestor's lands, that's why they are trying to steal our lands, our heritage, our pride, our humanity. They want our civilization as their claim to some civilization in B.C. times. They want to claim our land, just like the white supremacists want to claim our lands with the proven fake of Kennewick man.
You can look at Moche paintings and assume people from outer space came, by the strange figures on the vases.
You can look at Nasca earth drawings in the desert and also assume outer space because you can only see those images from the sky.
The following is a list of racist thinking “theories” that REFUSES to give our people credit for having created our civilizations out of our own genius. This is a list of the attacks on our intelligence, saying that we were too stupid to invent our own civilizations and to achieve what we achieved.
Atlantis theory, that we are refugees from the continent of Atlantis.
UFO’s theory, that people from outerspace started our civilizations.
Kennewick Man, that white people were here first and that this is their land.
Phoenicians theory, Lost Tribes of Israel theory, Book of Mormon where white people came here first, and that the Chinese and of course the Africans.
We have had to mount this defense of our people because our community was attacked by the Afrocentric racists at the recent LACMA Olmec Exhibit lectures. We of the Mexica Movement were the only people from our community who stood up and spoke against them. There were several Chicano studies professors there that evening. Not one of them stood up to speak up for our people. In fact most of them ran out of the room like chickens when this all broke out. Everyone of the Chicano studies professors refused to defend our people.
The Mexica Movement was the only organization at the LACMA Olmec exhibition lectures, individually or as an organization, to defend our people and to confront this racist attack by Afrocentrics.
