“In the most ancient temples scattered throughout Asia, where his worship is yet continued, he is found black as jet, with the flat face, thick lips, and curly hair of the Negro.” These references by English historian and linguist Godfrey Higgins accurately describe the earliest depictions of the Buddha.
In 1998 the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science concluded a study by the Chinese Human Genome Diversity Project and made public their findings which stated that “Most of the population of modern China – one-fifth of all the people living today – owes its genetic origins to Africa…”. The study was the result of a consortium of several leading research groups in the People’s Republic of China in combination with the Human Genetics Center at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas. The research was funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. In addition to genetic evidence linking China to Africa, archeological evidence has recorded close to 100 “pyramids” that are located in a 100km area around the city Xi’an in central China. This site is also well known as the location of the famous life-size terracotta warriors. Further study of the history and art of the Shang and Chou dynasties in China will reveal even more African influences. This information and evidence points to a clear interaction and anthropological connection that must be acknowledged if the complete story is to be told in its entirety.
