Columbus
Burning Spear Lyrics


I and I old I know
I and I old I say
I and I reconsider
I and I see upfully that
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

He's saying that, he is the first one
Who discover Jamaica
I and I say that,
What about the Arawak Indians and the few Black man
Who were around here, before him
The Indians couldn't hang on no longer
Here comes first Black man and woman and children,
In a Jam Down Land ya
A whole heap of mix up and mix up
A whole heap a ben up, ben up,
We have fi straighten out,
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

What a long way from home
I and I longing to go home
Within a Red, Green, and Gold Robe
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Out a Jam Down land ya
A whole heap of mix up mix up
A whole heap a ben up, ben up,
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Out a Jam Down land ya

Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Columbus is a liar
Yes jah Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Columbus

You can't "discover" a place that has inhabitants on it's land. History is full of tales.

Chris Columbus was a black Jew, that's why they made up the discovery story; they tried to hide the true history that all the Jews in Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, and Rome were black Jews. You'll find scriptures in the Holy King James Bible of these black Jews who actually built and lived in Europe for thousands of years. King James Royal Families were black and from the tribe of Judah = King David linage. Are you starting to see why they keep lying?

@TheMilk Trafficker really?? Dig deeper

The natives had no idea of the existence of Africa, Europe, or the Middle East any more than the turkeys or the mountain lions, fools. Europe was far more advanced; therefore, the Spanish DISCOVERED what humanity, as a whole, did not know existed. Chris Blackwell also DISCOVERED Bob Marley, although Bob Marley already existed. Get it? 
Had the Tainos been the ones who landed in Europe and put two and two together, then we would today be saying the Tainos discovered Europe. It matters sh*t who was already where if they had no idea of anything other than their realm. 
If tomorrow we get DISCOVERED by aliens who already know of six more livable planets you know nothing about. Yeah, we got DISCOVERED even though we were already here. Put the marijuana down, people.
