"Are they a seperate African race? Or are they mixed with Arabs and Europeans, to an extent which would explain their appearance.

Although craniofacially Somalis resemble Nordic (particularly Norwegian) people more than any other ethnic group, recent research has shown that the average Somali is genetically only 15% Caucasian, which includes Arabs, North Africans, as well as Europeans.

The rest of the Somali genome consists of 5% Sub-Saharan African genes, and the remaining 80% consists of Cushitic genes. Cushitic people are found largely in the Somalia, Ethiopia, and Eritrea, which are the main countries which constitute the Horn of Africa"

just wondering undecided undecided

Why? Cos they have mixed races among them? Why are Africans still ebdlsved mentally? I don't consider those ppl from those countries beautiful just cos they are mixed race. Senegalese women ate more beautiful and I will choose a Senegalese woman any day
