True but indigenous African people represent the overwhelming majority population on the continent.

True, if you are including Arab-Africans as well. Supposedly that's why all Asians are counted together--in which case Asians are definitely more prevalent and larger in number.

A few years back, this morph was done of the average person on earth. Basically they did a morph of the average Chinese person, average Indian, etc, and then weighed the faces proportionately to their share of the world population.



As you can see, the average person basically looks Asian. I can see a bit of African in the morph - more than white, but not much.

I know its a very old thread, but that morph is hilarious. A eurocentric fantasy if ever I saw one. Not needing to be a scientist, it would be obvious that the average coloration and features would be darker and less 'northern European'. Indeed, I suspect such plain and generic features would be lost due to the very distinctive feature set, coloration, phrenological differences that most other people around the world share.

2 out of 3 people on the planet are Asian as well...so it makes sense that the average person on the planet would look Asian.
