Reader comment on item: Keith Ellison, Where Are You?
in response to reader comment: 1st people to come to the Americas

btilly:

Unfortunately, you are simply extending generalized opinions about migration, along with inaccurate information - not to mention, having gone off on a tangent.

Mongolians were not first in America. In fact, migration to the Americas preceded the establishment of Mongolia or Mongolian people. What you fail to realize is that the people who may of crossed the Bering migrated thru Siberia and from China. A separate branch of migration entered the area that later became Mongolia and settled. The Paleo-Indians that migrated from Siberia were not Mongolian - Mongolia was established as an empire in 1206AD. Migration thru the Bering occured before 25,000BC.

Slaves were not simply sold by Arabs to Europeans. In fact the Portuguese, Dutch, etc, bought them directly from African ports.

The Britons never fought in the Civil War. It was an American war and it was not over slavery. Southern states tried to leave the American Union and they were defeated.

Women are not referred to as animals in the Quran, nor are slaves referred to as such

I think you need to take your own advice and read - or at least learn to comprehend what you do read.

Good luck with that
