    EVERYTHING OF AFRICAN INFLUENCE/ORIGIN IN THE AMERICAS n CARIBBEAN HAS EUROPEAN LINKS

    How come EVERYTHING that has AFRICAN CONNECTIONS/INFLUENCES in the AMERICAS or the CARIBBEAN has some form of EUROPEAN LINK or ORIGIN, yet NO ONE can POINT to the SOURCE anywhere in EUROPE?

    Because such a statement is not 100% true. There's nothing European about Rara, Gwo Ka or Palo music. There's nothing European about Mangu, Pepperpot or Haitian Legume, and theres nothing european about konpe lapin or anansi stories.
