Were There Fair Africans (non-arabs) In Africa Before The Europeans Came? by benega: 6:24pm On Oct 21, 2014
I'm wondering whether the occasional light skinned negro find is purely due to effects of interbreeding with europeans or wether its natural 4 africans 2 be fair.

Yes. Black Africans have been in contact with the Arabs and europians since the time of the bible.

It is actually natural, and he is still within the color spectrum of the black African context. You see this all over in many countries in sub saharan Africa.

If you are talking about light skinned Nigerians then yes. This is so because apart from our light skinned we don't have any white feature like slim noses an less curly hair. If we were mixed with whites we would look more like Ethiopians. The only people who might be mixed are the fulanis.
Re: Were There Fair Africans (non-arabs) In Africa Before The Europeans Came? by Nobody: 7:02am On Oct 23, 2014
op, simple answer to your question - YES.

Very true. The bushmen are the lightest of Africans, with an exclusively African Haplogroup A and Mtdna Lo. Very beautiful people.

Without a doubt. All bushmen are yellow. Of course there are incidents of light skin among other African tribes, none of them as often as it occurs among the bushmen. I believe they are called the San. That photo is in the desert. They look even better in the city, all brushed up.

The khoi's are a race on their own, do not associate them with the conventional black african. The admixture between the khoi and the existing bantu population in SA is a contributory cause of the promiment rise in the number of red-bones in that part of africa.

Conventional? whats that? Bantus, Nilotes, Cushites and pygmy groups are all unrelated and very different in phenotype, genetics, language and origin. So what makes one conventional African? Or is it coz we the Bantus took over most of the land? Bantus are also predorminantly shades of brown by the way, Nilotes mostly a Lupita kind of dark chocolate while
Cushites have the entire spectrum, from the natural yellow to a dark chocolate. African is not a race. All the above named are different in their own right. But if the continent is synonymus to us bantus, well, our fathers did subdue it, so I guess Africa really is ours.

Redbones?

Sorry, but we don"t use those terms in Africa.
And Khoi's are not a "race" of their own, they are part of the spectrum of Aftican people.

Yeah, they Have their peculiarities and uniqueness, but many African tribes could qualify as races if that was the case.

I asked, because the pygmies are also known to be very Yellowish.

Exactly. The differences between African groups are greater than the differences betwix the rest of the earths races. Genetic scientists are the cause of this misinformation by running with little knowledge.

The truth is that I am not familiar with the original pygmy features. But I have noted a prevalence of yellow skin among some of the related tribes. They must have had a similar prevalence before invasion and assimilation by Bantus, Nilotes and Cushites in East and central Africa. Chances are that many tribes there started out as pygmy tribes.

So blacks are Africans who are not nilotes, Arabs and cushites? And of Pigmy tribes? Says Who? And what are these non Africans doing on our land. Your classification refer to skin colour? So if presence on the continent does not matter, are Indian, Papua New Guineas dark skins, and Australias Aborigins also black, and African? Some of those have bantu facial features.

Divided theoretically only by a handful of uneducated armchair "experts" sitted miles away in distant continents. When whites came to colonize the continent, they did not make these exceptions and now with a second scramble, apparently some are now Caucassian. Only a very foolish African nation would bite that bait. We are very tribal and different, but rally together against common enemies.

Speaking of mixed looks, you should sea a Chinese and one of those tall, dark African tribes. Very cushitic result. The hair is also more losely curled - even straight compared to Caucasian and African mixes which result to smaller curls. Some Chinese mixes retain their skin colour.
