Yep you're white.

I'm kidding of course but you can't really divide up the "white" and "black" it's all connected.

I'm very worried about continued interest by europeans and americans in this issue. So what Ethiopia has a few percent ''eurasian dna'' more than others? There are mixed people in the carribean and brazil does that make them special? All of this is very strange, it's like saying well they are the only uncolonized country in Africa so they can't be all African.

You're projecting your thoughts onto others there are people that don't hold a set of values and beliefs that there is a hierarchy based on color. Some of us are just know intuitively that we're all connected and are searching for the truth(the blueprint).

The whole mixed people thing is sort of silly when you consider the fact that every person on earth is genetically "mixed" having inherited half of their genetic material from one of their two parents.

I guess that's where they get their (Ethiopian) sharper features from compared to the rest of the native population of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Please, please, please STOP! Just stop lumping the 22 distinct genetic groups that make up "Sub-Saharan" Africans into one fantastical group of humans.

For example, the Wodaabe a sub-group of the Fulani ethnic group who inhabit Niger, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Nigeria have the same facial features that you ascribe to Ethiopians, a nation with 80 distinct ethnic groups.


The Wodaabe of Central Africa.



Anuak of Ethiopia

It's only a matter of time before Eurocentrics will start claiming Central and West Africa. Just give it time.
