Among the common misconceptions and myths floating around about Origine health, Sickle Cell Anemia is toward the top of the most problematic debates. Claims like ‘Origines can’t get Sickle Cell’, ‘Sickle Cell is an African only disease”, ‘Origines don’t get the same diseases as Africans’.
The first priority in dissecting such ignorant and thoughtless assertions is to highlight what Africa is.
Africa is a continent. Not a country. A continent. With over 50 countries. Over a thousand languages. And well over a thousand tribes. Just as the people of India and the Chinese are different groups and phenotypes yet still ASIAN, West Africans are completely different from Ethiopians. Ethiopians are different from Moroccans. Moroccans are different from Somalians. And they are all African.
The same can be said for copper-colored people globally, and especially for America. America encompasses North, Central, AND South America, not just the United States of America. Over 10 countries. Over 50 tribes. Over 100 languages and dialects. Not only is it grossly uninformed to generalize the Americas and it’s Origines, it is explicitly dangerous to Copper Colored Origines who’re making an attempt to reclaim their identity and lineage.
According to M.D. Eugene Coodley and M.D. J. Kert, remnants of Sickle Cell Anemia were found in the skeletal remains of some Mayan Indians (1929). It is noted that even though it was once considered a Negro-only (racial layman for Africanoid) disease, it is traceable to the Ancients of the U.S. and Mexico-- two nations with racially Autochthonous Origine populations.
To deny that Origines may appear Africanoid or have Africanoid composition is to be overtly anti-black and denying the true makeup of Origines in the Americas. Furthermore, that argument stands to diminish all traces of Ancient Indigenous American artifacts, imagery, and architecture that reflects ‘blacks’ as null, void, baseless, and fallacy, even though, all ancient American human skeletal remains and cultural remnants recovered that reflect blackness and melanin, are older than the ones that don’t.
On one hand, many will claim that Ancient Mayans were Natives who had nothing to do with ‘Blacks’. Then, when provided evidence of the clearly melanated phenotypes the Ancient Mayans depicted for themselves, the arguments switch up and the goalpost is transported yet again.

“Mayans were dark, but they weren’t no Africans!” “They had completely different phenotypes!” “They only look dark because of the kind of paint-- it’s old that’s why it looks so dark-- it’s the style of the photograph!”
Who can argue with this?
Note the white hats and garments. If they desired to depict themselves as a lighter race, we would be seeing them that way. The current day breed of Spanish Conquistador settlers mixed with Mongoloid Siberian Asiatic Natives are only masquerading as Mayans, and the majority every other tribe to which they stake claim through falsified documents and one-drop blood lineage rules.
Nevertheless, the strawman arguments never end, with no factual evidence or contextual history to support it. So in the question of many health complications and conditions affecting majority ‘Negro’ populations today, is there a connection to be drawn between them and the ancient indigenous populations who were also majority affected by the same diseases?
The number of caucasian cases for Sickle Cell anemia was and is so low today, that the disease is still considered an almost exclusively negro disease. According to a further study on the exclusivity of this disease and it’s prevalence with Mayans, it was observed that Sickle Cell Anemia almost certainly played a major role in the downfall of the Ancient Mayan civilization.
From the same source, Sickle Cell Anemia is also asserted to have Moorish origins, another group historically Copper Colored and highly melanated, also referred to as Black and ‘Africanoid’.
It’s obviously on us as Origines to be willing to do our own research. Hearing something like ‘Sickle cell is a black disease and mostly only affects African people’ can be disheartening in the arguments against our lineage and history. But one can always counter with mentioning how Sickle Cell Anemia is in all likelihood one of the top factors in the rapid downfall of Mayans, and that modern Mayans look the same today as they did before Conquistadors arrived.
So what does the prevalence of this historical disease in Mayans say about Ancient America? More importantly, what does this say about the “Blacks” mostly affected by Sickle Cell anemia today? Genetic links? Similar bloodlines? Parallel phenotypes? The same diseases impacting the same groups today? Lastly, who does this eliminate from the debates about who is Origine and who is not? Who stands to benefit from keeping this information out of the mainstream? History repeats itself. You decide.
