And if you want the truth, Native Americans weren't always there, since everyone came from the Ark

They always have a theory as to how the Native Americans got to North America. Here's an idea, maybe they were there in the first place. Every skeleton they find goes back farther and farther... Into the exact same place. None of them look look White or Black. Some of them look Asian, but even then, they look like their own race. Anyone could say the same thing about any other race: How did they get there? Maybe they were there a lot longer than people think.

Almosan-Keresouan Amerinds have a small bit of European blood, Haplogroup X. But those people walked east across Bering Strait like the others, they didn't sail across the Atlantic, or whatever that goofy idea is. Hap X people were already mixed when they reached Alaska.

Australoid Paleo-Indians were in the Americas many thousands of years before the Amerinds from Baikalia. The Australoids anciently walked to Beringia from South China.

Australoids are black, but are genetically different from Africans. Their African origin is the oldest, about 60,000 BC.

Australoids are not Africans. They are mixed with Neanderthals and Denisovans.

When the Amerinds (most Native Americans) first came to America in 10,000 BC, they were yellow people. They found many Australoids there who had long been there, the Paleo-Indians. When these two groups intermarried and became one, the Native Americans finally became "red." It's a mixture of Asian and Australoid, that's the secret.

Afrians were the first american

Incorrect, no scientific data ever supports that conclusion. DNA of Native Americans have no genetic origin found for Africa to date. As matter of fact, they don’t really know where they come from, only speculation from Asia.

African isn't a race of people, yes the first Americans were black people

+Adiel Hernandez You sound like a Troll.  Here goes anyway as others may want to know also. Sorry, Anthony Woodroffe is correct.  Remains in South America have been found. Scientists are conjecturing the people were pulled by trade winds. In any case, the Native Americans weren't first.   And now there's indications, from Clovis and Salurian points that they were here much much earlier as indicated by the dating of those remains and points. They are showing up in the east and midwest.  Boats again while following the coast.  Even with the ice sheets as the sea provides well. The "I was here first Native American" mantra is on the wane.   I'm sure the Indians, oh excuse me, Native Americans, aren't going to be politically happy about that and delay that new knowledge as long as possible. It's time to integrate and get on with it. No one has shot at Indians, nor Indians scalp anybody etc. for a very long time.  The I'm persecuted honeymoon is over. Time to move on. And that includes manipulating things to claim they are related to ancient tribes when they don't even know where the burials are. The local tribes intermarried, captured etc,and various tribes came and went while dominating others over the eons. And in fact most tribes across the entire country were busy killing those outside their tribes and stealing from each other before the "white man" ever arrived! So much for the noble savage. But let's not take any DNA and disturb the grave so people have to take THEIR word for it.  Native Americans are humans with all the same foibles as the rest of the human race so taking their word for it isn't good enough for me.  Especially when evidence of how old things are and science as to where someone comes from can be determined by isotope testing, is blocked and impeded to further their political agenda. As soon as ANYONE blocks getting information on a situation, I don't believe anything they say. Google "The reconstruction of the oldest skeleton EVER found in the Americas" and research from there.
