It is very easy to see that African Americans are (largely) descendants of West African slaves. I don’t know where folks came up with the whole Hebrew Israelite theory, but sure maybe Israel was originally the Gold Coast and the white folks relocated the holy land to an area of lesser melanin cause white folks love to Columbus. One of the first things that struck me was how many Ghanians and Togoless people look like people I know in the States. Like your memaw that loves to listen to Tom Joyner every morning or the uncles that are excited to go to white linen parties so they can line dance to Frankie Beverly + Maze. You’ve got cousins in Accra.
