When you talked about the Yorubas, you were a bit close to linking them to the African-Americans because they were part of the Eʋes (EWES). It is true that is will take a long time before people will know the real hebrew even though they exist in West Africa and undergoing the same conditions like the so called jews in israel now.
You must read more about the Eʋes (but the name was written by the Germans as EWES because they pronounce W as V which is the closest sound to the ʋ sound which most people find difficult to pronounce). These ethnic group can be presently found in the region referred to by the slave buyers as THE SLAVE COAST(The present day part of Ghana called the Volta Region, Togo, Benin and parts of Yorubas). Most of those people who run away from the wicked chief who was selling their ancestor are now settled around the same region that I mentioned and always have a festival literary meaning the running away from the rule of the tyrannic king. In fact they run away from them because he was selling them into slavery. Later on when they run away the Asantes, who have gold collaborated with the whites when they came by exchanging gold with guns, gun powder etc to capture some of them again to be sold. Please try and read more about this.
The Eʋes people are said to be descendants of EVE and their traditions fit perfectly into the ancient hebrew. Before the so called white men came, they had a god they worship, called Yeʋes, which I think the christian call YAWEH. Some the bible names just have a direct meaning in their the language of Eʋes. For instance Moses mean the end of the road, David means a child, manaseh means I will give to God and most of their names now are relating to God, eg, selorm=god loves me, setsoafia= only god can judge, Selasie= god has heard me, selinam or elinam=god is there for me etc. As I told you, presently other ethnic groups especially the Asantes are against them and are calling for their heads or sent them out of Ghana.

Hope you will do more research about this and know that most of those sent to the americas were Eʋes.
