No. Many Nigerian Igbos have firmly stated that they are not mixed.

Why do Italians have darker skin and curly hair? Africans can be pure and lighter skin tone. I know some. And there are many Khoisan who have light skin and they are pure.

But the Khoisans were here first. They existed before Asians.

Climate change had a profound effect on the Khoisan today they number only 100,000 but once were the largest group on the planet. Interesting article.

What Happened? European devils. Just look at what the white devil did to the Native Americans, Eskimos, native Canadians and Hawaiians.

Also, if you did some research, the Native Canadians looked Asian. Just like the Eskimos.

examples.

It sounds like you have a hatred for Europeans. I don't believe in Satan or devils LoL. You may want to clarify what you mean by European devils because that statement is so loaded it sounds like you have a hatred for European people.

I do understand that European colonization played a significant part in the decline of the Khoisan but so did the Bantu colonization which started 4,000 years ago.

Keep in mind many people in South Africa are part Khoisan specifically the Cape Coloureds that are mostly a blend of those European colonists you despise, Khoisan, Xhosa and Asian Indians.

I would like to keep the discussion on this thread about the Khoisan. There have been some threads already regarding the topic you are hinting at I can read between the lines. I don't have any interest in discussing that topic on this thread.

I'm sure the Neanderthal amounts are lower than is typical. At least on many people of Euro/Afro mix that I share with on 23andme, many of the people with greater Afro genes hace very low Neanderthal genes as a percentage of their genome while the whiter people tend to have much more, some are almost 4% Neanderthal. I can't say how this works with Asians or other people that don't have ties to Africa/Europe/America because I don't share with any of them on 23andme.

All of this goes to show that once a mixture takes place, it may be diluted but you can never get rid of it completely.
AntonioR I have been reading your comments and they sound completely racist and CRAZY. You are not BLACK but you think you know about BLACK people. You seem very arrogant. The Khoisan just have lighter skin as they were the first people then they migrated and turned darker, etc. Not all black people have dark skin. Black African people came before Europeans. We are older than Europeans. So Europeans have OUR dna we do not have yours more than vice versa. If an African is lighter skin toned it does not mean they were mixed with European. Ethiopian features are not the result of European white admixture. Ethiopians naturally looked the way they do then they migrated out of Africa. So Europeans have Ethiopian looks.

Africa is a HUGE continent with 50 plus countries. DNA can change an mutate over thousands of years and in different climates. Ethiopia has more dessert, etc. therefore thinner noses to not breath sand. So black Africans all over the African continent can look very very different to each other. Black Africans are not all jet black skinned only the Dinkas and alot of Wolof Senegalese are super dark. The rest of Africa is chocolate brown to meduim brown to light yellow in skin tone. Black people are diverse in features and hair textures as well as eye colors. We do not need whites to make us look different. White people arrived AFTER blacks.
Nigerian IGBO tribal blacks can have very light yellow skin with green, blue or grey eyes with zero white European admixture.
GOOGLE these terms below and you can find pics of super diverse black Africans
