The African-Polynesian world started with the first migration from Africa. Scientist agree that the people moved in to the south east Asia area and migrated to the islands. The water was much lower at the time. If land connected Alaska to the Asian continent then there was a lot more islands in the present chain of islands of today, which made it easier to travel from one island to another. Between the first and second migration the people learned about the ocean and explored the neighboring islands. Throughout this time, they explored all of the way to Hawaii and the Americas.

After the second migration the Chinese sailed to central America, specifically Mexico area and breaded with the people. Thus, giving the Mexicans a short and stocky body. You can see the difference when you look at the other Central Americans. The Spaniards went to Central America too and you can see that their inter breading made a change in the Mexicans as well. Today's true Mexican is short, stocky and has Chinese eyes.
 
Professor Booker T Coleman has a scientific point of view that is represented in the video called The Origin of White People. There are many people around the world that know very little about their ancient history. Not nowing our very true ancient Black history affects all of us as individuals and as a race. The distant past and the present time is what we will be addressing.

This is a timeline of Ancient Black History of the Kemet Civilization who are our ancient ancestors. The Kemet Civilization goes back over 5200 BC as the oldest documented civilization.

305 BC The Ptolemaic Dynasty. The second Hellenistic dynasty, the Ptolemies ruled Egypt until Egypt became a province of Rome in 30 BC (whenever two dates overlap, that means there was a co-regency).

300 BC Alexander the Great invaded Kemet and renamed it Egypt.

295 BC A shift in royal capitals from Napatan to Meroe is made for unknown reasons. Some scholars hypothesize that the Kingdom of Kush wished to gain control over Egyptian trade. The problem of determining the reason for the move is made all the more difficult by the beginning of the use of a distinctly Nubian language. This language is based upon the heiroglyphs of the Egyptians, but since no version of it is spoken today and there has not been an effective translation of the language, much of what is written in this Meroitic language remains a mystery.

285 BC Setepenre-Meryamum / Ptolemy I (Soter) was abdicated.

51 - 30 BC Cleopatra VII More Details

30 BC: Rome officially took over Egypt.

30 BC Cleopatra VII had affairs with Roman Dictator Julius Caesar and Roman General Marc Antony; but, it was not until after her suicide (after Marc Antony was defeated by Octavian, who would later be Emperor Augustus) that Egypt became a province of Rome. Subsequent Roman Emperors were accorded the title of Pharaoh, although exclusively while in Egypt. One Egyptian king-list lists the Roman Emperors as Pharaohs up to and including Decius.

23 BC Egypt fell into Roman control. The Romans attempted to make Nubia pay tribute to them. This led to the first confrontation between Nubia and the Romans. The Meroitic Period proved to be one of tremendous resistance to the forces acting on Africa at the time. Much of this resistance came at the hands of the number of ruling queens during the period. However, by the middle of the fourth century A.D., the Meroitic Period collapsed. Two reasons are generally attributed to this: First, that Nomads of the desert made travel overland difficult, and Second, that the rise of the Axumite Kingdom of Abyssinia cause a collapse of the Kushite economy. In any case, the Meroitic empire was no longer in existence by A.D. 320. Soon after, the X-Group Period began in Nubia.

20 BC The Temple Mount is created by Herod who begins rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. This project continues into the Common Era (C.E.)
