Well Tunisia belonged to the Ottoman empire as you know. The Turks made a lot of raids in Ukraine and Russia, to capture slaves. Even the wives of a few sultans were liberated Russian slaves.
  • A lot of them were settled all over the Ottoman empire, but especially in fertile northern Tunisia. They quickly integrated in Tunisian society. It was not uncommon for Eastern Europeans to settle in Northern Africa during these times. For example the dynasty ruling Egypt were freed Albanian slaves.

From Northwest to Northeast Africa, thru the Arabian Peninsula and stretching to the Indian subcontinent and beyond, there are people who are the color of a brown paper bag and then some. They also have cultures with continuity stretching back hundreds if not thousands of years.

Going by physical anthropology these regions would not be able to evolve a population that has more blondes than Sweden. And for the archaeological record it was migrations from the lower latitudes (like Northern Africa) from which Out of Africa sapien movements spread out over the world.

Over the centuries there has been other ingredients added to the pot, and quite frankly just because crackhead nubian Olmec and neoconfederate Americans have hangups about identity and people of different colors intermarrying its ridiculous for others to bend over backwards to boost the self esteem of such degenerate lowlifes.

Like I said, its a pretty pathetic excuse for a human being who lets crackhead nubian olmecs and all the other dregs and losers of society dictate identity and behavior to them.

Absolutely ridiculous the degeneracy that is being promoted by the "I love myself" sensitivity movement.

Truly Americans you git the gubmint you deserve.

The former princess in Egypt in the 1940s had a French and Albanian ancestors. Her name is Fawzia Fuad of Egypt

African and black do NOT mean the same thing. There are plenty of indigenous Africans that are very light looking and are indigenous to the continent.

It's not rocket science.

Africa is the most diverse intrapopulationally.

( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡) The heads of the grossly Afrocentric folks in here should be falling off, as much as they're shaking them at anyone who does NOT advocate for their ridiculous notions. Lol! \_(ツ)_/

Caucasoid is an arbitrary parameter created in the 19th century. It is a residue, an anachronism. Two people can be 'Caucasoid' and not be closely related. Craniofacial plasticity is much more variable than was originally thought, so racial claims on craniofacial parameters are foolish. In microcosms, you might be able to show some relationship, but in global macrocosms, there are more mistakes than accuracy. Polytopicity is when two different groups of organisms that are not related end up having similar traits.
