I closed one of these already. There are any number of older threads that deal with this subject.  When his week is up, BK can take his Isolationist dreams to one of those.

There is no evidence for that, it's pure superficial claims.

No evidence at all. 
No anthropology evidence.
No genetic evidence.


So claiming something it's mixed based on statues is a mistake. 
If they were mixed than how come all of the hair are straight?

This Indian looks more mixed race than the others. If the Olmecs weren't black, they may have still been descended from Africans who came to America via India, island hopped across the Pacific, and intermarried with Native Americans who had crossed from Siberia to Alaska (then headed south) following the last Ice Age

Some members in this group keep making these blah blah blah superficial theories based on the shape of the statues which is very weak. As proven times and times again, and again there is absolutely no evidence of Africans or Negroid among the Olmecs. Those features you see can found in Proto-Mongoloid Amerindians not typical of Asian features like from Asia or Eskimo, Inuit.  Amerindians have features that can overlap somewhat with other race but have nothing to do with them at all.

"  "The presence of Uncle Sam inspired Thor Heyerdahl, the Norwegian explorer and author of Kon Tiki, among others to claim a Nordic ancestry for at least some of the Olmec leadership... [However], it is extremely misleading to use the testimony of artistic representations to prove ethnic theories. The Olmec were American Indians, not Negroes (as Melgar had thought) or Nordic supermen." 

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE STATUE AND THE GUY, YOU WILL SEE THE FEATURES MATCH COMPLETELY.
