Study: African tuberculosis wiped out most American Indians before European contact
A new study conducted by professor Anne Stone, of Arizona State University, suggests to us that White people have no need to feel guilty about the alleged killing of the majority of American Indians with diseases.
Professor Stone studied the strains of tuberculosis found on the bones of seals and sea lions in Peru, and concluded that sea creatures traveling from Africa to South America carried the tuberculosis that wiped out many American Indians.
The theory is that animals in Africa, or most likely humans, passed tuberculosis on to sea lions and seals which then swam across to South America, infecting humans on the coast with the disease.
The researchers believe that once tuberculosis spread into South America, it was carried up into North America.
“What we found was really surprising. The ancient strains are distinct from any known human-adapted tuberculosis strain,” said professor Stone.
“We found that the tuberculosis strains were most closely related to strains in seals and sea lions.”
“Our results show unequivocal evidence of human infection caused by sea lions and seals in pre-Columbian South America.”
“Within the past 2,500 years, the marine animals likely contracted the disease from an African host species and carried it across the ocean to coastal people in South America.”
The team looked at human skeletons from Peru, dated 750 AD to 1350 AD, and found that people back then already had tuberculosis.
Also, the team looked at the DNA strains of the disease. They confirmed that some American Indians died of European diseases, but that was nothing compared to tuberculosis which was already well established.
Anti-Whites love to guilt-trip White people for things like this, and as usual, science and history ends up disproving most of what they say.
They want us to hate ourselves so that White genocide can go full steam ahead. If we hate ourselves, it’s easier for them to flood us with millions of non-White immigrants, and force us to accept “diversity”, or in other words, make it illegal for a place to be “too White”.
Their fate was sealed long before the White man arrived.
