Yorubas May Have Possible Partial Berber (north African Blood) by Adeba01(m): 12:54pm On Apr 29
I found an interesting article on the yorubas, that I find very insightful, wherein in states that Yorubas have berber caucasiod through mixing with the fulanis.

Here is the link of the source, you will find the information fascinating :-

Originally,it's the other way round.The Yoruba are of the orient but inter married with Nubians, Cush, Ethiopians,Bantu as well into Olmec groups of west Africa.And ended up in West Africa ,whilst elements of them scattered in across the globe.

When you mean scattered across the globe they are no longer part of the youruba people as they are heavily mixed and don't resemble the Yoruba, it would be more appropriate for Brazilians and Cubans to claim their spanish/ portuguese heritage as they look more like their European side than their alleged Yoruba side

The notion of Yorubas hailing from the orient reeks of inferiority complex and the fabrication of this narrative originated from Europeans to discredit native origins angry. May I ask you is there anything wrong from originating in Africa . Must everything revolve around Caucasians angry[size=8pt][/size]. Do you see Chinese people doing the same thing?

Yorubas are edoid, by ethnicity they migrated out of edo 3,000 years ago and they formed a new community and a new language, but kept some cultural similarities with their original edo origin

Depends which Yoruba group, Yorubas are not a homogeneous group but are a heterogenous group. For example the Yorubas from Oyo are Nupe by ethnicity not edoid, but the Yorubas that are Itsekiri are possibly edoid and so to possibly are the Yorubas from Ondo.

Don't forget the Yorubas out of all the southern Nigerian tribes have assimilated the Fulanis and Hausas the most. So vast majority of the Yorubas of today have Hausa / Fulani blood.
As far as I am concerned the Yorubas are more related to the Northern tribes like the Hausa, Nupe Bariba, than they are to the Edos, getting a bit fed up with this Edo Yoruba propaganda link angry.
Read the history books of Yoruba people and they're are more mentions of the Yorubas having greater intercourse and relations with the Hausa / Fulanis than to any other southern Nigeria group.

The darkness that you hate so much is comprised of a beautiful natural component called melanin, it is what the natural space and galaxy is made out of. In other words God's preferred colour.

I dont know your school of thought but have you for once wondered reasons the Hebrew words are found in Yoruba language ? I mean classic Hebrew,which arent found in Arabic as 100% cognate found in Yoruba language does not exist in Hausa language or Ethiopic language.

This has nothing to do with inferiority complex and did not originate from Europeans as you have speculated. I expected you to know that ,oral account, manufacturing production, Animals of Yorubas difference from African species,Visual Art works, Oramiela similarity wth Arab's Il Raml( divination system to God), food crops that are found in Yoruba land etc

I am aware that the Bible is termed among atheist scholars as fictional even with awesome Archeological evidence that showed Hebrew scrolls found in Egypt in Africa and Near East.But the reality is that, you must be able to read classic Hebrew ideogram as well as Yoruba's to understand the fact.


Paradventure, you can read it, or wait till I do scholarly justice in the future. Before then verify these oral account that are proto Hebrew Bible account and Yorubas:

1. DaoduIwa/DodoIwas/DudduIwa/DoodooIwa is aYoruba name for the head of the family and pioneer unifying king who overthrew two kings. These is replica as a David(English name) ,Daod( Arabic name).


2. Thirteen settlement are the settlement that was unified under DodoIwa,which is same as Hebrew kingdoms that's thirteen


3. DodoIwa attacked a king at ancient side of ora and took the man's ancestor crown . The same was the case of David,who attact a man whose ancestor crown was taken


4. The name of the crown DodoIwa/DuduIwa took was Makin. The name of the crown David took was M-a-l-k( this is the ideogram written account). The king known as Oba kutukutu Osanganga(Yoruba's account)


5. That Yoruba's Yéṣùà is same in meaning as Hebrew's Yeshua i.e having same 100% true cognate and meaning with Hebrew.


Lastly, Guess what? I leave the rest in my book.

God preferred colour ?You amaze me!I wish you know. First decode this: According to Yoruba creation ; ìbì átì ìrè lá dá ìlè àyè; evil and light(bad and good). This means, light is preference in God's part. This is obvious fact in religious circle.

Having asserted this, it doesnt mean mankind, because Caucasian and darkskin is the perfection of mankind in God's eye.In conclusion, ìrú riṣá atí ìrú èdú láwọ̀ is perfection in Yoruba's spiritualism.

Pure fantasies are you an agent of caucasiod peoples?

Times like this makes me wish I was living at the time of my ancesters prior to the intrusion and interference
of Europeans at least I would not be exposed to such ridiculous silly ideas and delusions.

All yoruba groups were originally edoid who migrated west ward, and later intermixed with the few aborigines, nupes and fulani people over time


They kept their dark complexion to sgow their edo heritage, alongside some inherent ediod words

Even if I were to take your word for it, technically speaking Yorubas are no longer edoid as they have (which you seem to agree with me) mixed themselves with the nupes and fulani so technically the yorubas of today are not edoid but a mixed group between what you claim edoid and nupe / fulanis . So they are now a unique tribal / ethnic group

I suspect that Yorubas inherited their dark skin from their northern tribal ancestry eg Hausa / Nupe not from the Edos. If anything Edos are known to be light skinned, at the same time it is a well known fact that northerners like the Nupe are dark skinned.

Being a mulatto or not has nothing to do with what I am trying to posit. Among darkskins, do we have different features of physic! So, it's not about Colour of one' skin.

On my own ancestry, I noticed geometric twins birth, curly dreadlock at birth, dwindle Arabic form of curly hair, which I know, looks alike with some East African or Asiatic darkskins people from my father's side.

Interestingly my father never mentioned of having a white man's ancestry to me. So, it marvel my imagination. So at it stands, I do not need to a white man to be happy because melanin that dwells in my skin suits me.
