To get coconuts to the Americas you have 4 options.
1. They walked across Beringia carrying seeds
2. They arrived by boat following the coast line. Not at all out of the question as we know that Neanderthal were on islands that were impossible to reach without a boat.
3. Seeds drifted across the ocean until beaching in the Americas and sprouting.
4. A combination of 2 or more of the above.

Cease your attempts to change my use of the word monkey, which is sanctioned by better linguists than you including but not limited to my self and Oxford dictionary authors: www.oxforddictionaries.com...
A small to medium-sized primate that typically has a long tail, most kinds of which live in trees in tropical countries.
(In general use) any primate
Your understanding of genetics is also flawed: diversity does not correlate with geographic origin unless the import is more recent than the diversity,
but from someone who understands time the way you do (time according to your unoriginal narrative makes monkeys into people, well fish into people, well soup into people) this is hardly surprising.
I'm guessing that number 2 is what you feel to be your "ace in the hole"
1.1(In general use) any primate.
you resort to ad hominem's
diversity does not correlate with geographic origin unless the import is more recent than the diversity,

Brought across the ocean by the Pacific Islanders, yes.
