I'm kidding of course but you can't really divide up the "white" and "black" it's all connected.
So apparently we have all these Non-Africans mixing with Africans on the continent throughout history but Europe somehow remains relatively unmixed. Interesting

This is what I don't get, genetic research has confirmed over and over again the Out of Africa theory, we know that there were a series of back migrations due to climate change and we know that the middle east was the Greyhound bus station of early man so "admixtures" are all over the place taking place in different places overtime so this whole preoccupation with admixture and trying to sort out one "race" from another I find a puzzlement.

Huh? The Eurasians that spread across Africa starting appoximately 3,000 YBP are from the same population that are referred to as the Neolithics that brought agriculture to Europe approx. 7,000-8,000 YBP. The study indicates that both populations were most similar to the present day Sardinians whom are the proxy for the Neolithics. The Eurasian DNA found in the 4,500 year old Ethiopian indicates that that there was at least one earlier migration either from the Fertile Crescent(possibly Mesopotamia) or present day Eastern Turkey.

What implications does this have regarding ancient Egypt?

I hope I don't need to expand further on what I mean, but the back migration had to pass through Egypt and probably left a few people there and multiplied, built empires, etc. King Tut et al...

Maybe the ancient Ethiopian from whom the DNA was extracted from was or descended from ancient Egyptians? Is that a hint to what the people from there were like?

Read post #73 in the Tankhamun thread if you have questions about my post I can explain it on that thread.

All European populations carry DNA from the Neolithic Farmers that left the Middle East 7,000 - 8,000 years ago. I carry more DNA from the Mediterranean Farmers(from the same stock as the Eurasians that spread into E. Africa 3,000 YBP) than the original Europeans who were the Hunter Gatherers.

Population
Anatolian Farmer 11.50%
Baltic Hunter Gatherer 35.53%
Middle Eastern Herder 7.22%
East Asian Farmer 0.30%
South American Hunter Gatherer -
South Asian Hunter Gatherer -
North Eurasian Hunter Gatherer -
East African Pastoralist 1.83%
Oceanian Hunter Gatherer -
Mediterranean Farmer 42.23%
Pygmy Hunter Gatherer 1.09%
Bantu Farmer 0.28%

Yes, because if history has taught us anything, it is that Eurocentrics have long wanted to consider Black people to be White and give them all the privileges that entails.

The Wodaabe of Central Africa.



Anuak of Ethiopia
The Anuak makes a fraction less than 100.000 in Ethiopia a nation over 90 million people, most Anuak live in South-Sudan, if you want to make comparison with your so called fulani compare them to the largest groups in Ethiopia Oromo(34%) Amhara(27%), Somali(6,22%) Tigray(6,1%) together make up 73,22% who are of the Semitic and Cu****ic branch.

You know this whole argument reminds me of a Gil Scott-Heron verse.
Because Libya and Egypt used to be in Africa,
but they've been moved to the 'middle east'.
There are examples galore I assure you,
but if interpreting was left up to me
I'd be sure every time folks knew this version wasn't mine
which is why it is called 'His story'.
I've always been fascinated by folks who insist on setting lines of demarcations between the broad cross section of humanity.
