That's true.

When did I ever say or insist that? Have you seen my previous posts on this sub-forum? If you did than you would know that I'm one of the biggest opponents of using terms like Black when it comes to African identity on the continent. When it comes to those pictures, all I said was that it would be foolish to think all of those people in the pictures don't have any non-African ancestry. I never said that they didn't have any indigenous ancestry.

Did the Roman soldiers mixed with native women in North Africa, in the times of the Roman Empire?

That may be true to a certain extent but there is no denying that the non-African invaders/migrants are a huge component as to why many North African people look they way they do now.

Even if it were true, that doesn't mean that the majority of the population in Egypt had Roman ancestry. The Moors conquered Spain, but that doesn't mean all Spanish people are African.

Why so much denial? Why do you insist that the only reason lighter skinned people exist in North Africa is because of European migration? All over North Africa, from Morocco, through Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, people are lighter than equatorial Africans. Negros are actually native to sub-Saharan Africa. Even the dark Africans which currently reside in South Africa migrated there due to the job opportunities offered by industries created by the Afrikaners through mining, farming, trading and the wine industry.
