Being a "The Chicken or the Egg?" type person by my very nature
I read all that (to make sure it hadn't already been covered) before adding;
"Technically speaking, America was discovered by Africans."

frown ..just to DISCOVER that it had indeed already been said:

"Discovering America:" A Matter of Point of View

Not now. Not since airports and sea ports are shuffling us all together culturally. Yes, we all have our own unique histories, and perhaps even our favorite ancestry too, but the thing is, archeology has already got some pretty good evidence suggesting we share the same ancestry if we take it back far enough in time . This whole European, Asian, African, American thing may just turn out to be us selecting how far back we choose to look, drawing arbitrary lines around ourselves in the sands of time.
