If you look at the Canada cricket team, its made up of purely Patels and Pakistanis and some Fernandos

Cricket and soccer teams can represent diversity but not "color" diversity though.

There is a difference. Those Patels, Pakistanis, Fernandos of Canada are immigrants. Either they or their parents immigrated to Canada from India/Pakistan.

The people I showed of different Asian countries are indigeneous to those countries. Baluchistan Makran coast always had Black people for centuries. Saudi Arabia or Indonesia have Black people for hundreds of years-they are not any recent immigrants from any countries.

...and slaves were taken to Saudia Arabia from East Africa so there are Black Saudis and mixed with black Saudis. I think some slaves were taken as far as India and Pakistan also.

Papuan is black people , but in physical appearance they is still different from Africans , which is typical of Papuan usually in the form of a large nose, large lips, long jaw and muscular, few of them appear caucasoid feature. https://www.transitionsabroad.com/li...-wallace.shtml

then for Australian aboriginal there is a slight dravidan / south asian appearance from the eye shape as it has a dravidal characteristic, but is still slightly different from the dravida/south asian

Why would you consider Papua/New Guinea as part of Asia? Is Australia part of Asia? Are Aussie Aborigines Asians?

Until the 2000 US Census they were group together as an Asian subgroups to the US and many individual state governments. Around the time of my applications to schools and employment the term was Asian and Pacific Islander on the forms.

This is true, well said. Some of the darkest people on the planet are of Indian descent with straight hair and no ancestry from Africa whatsoever. Africans don't own the pigmentation or melanin of black skin. There's actually a ton of native South Africans who are very white.

This was an evolutionary adaptation to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, common in tropical areas. Whether it was Africa, South East Asia, Hawaii, etc.

Furthermore, the "big lips big noses" as the OP stated which is common in people of African descent was an evolutionary adaptation as well.

The shape of the human nose has been sculpted in part by climate. “A lot of it depends on the environment that your ancestors grew up in

In the wide noses often seen in individuals with tropical ancestry, Butaric adds, the air flow is much smoother, traveling straight back with less warming and humidification.

Moluccans and East Timorese fall in this category too
Most of Eastern Indonesia actually is Melanesian or part Melanesian.

Great post I would consider most of those individuals as Black. If have that brown melinated complexion then you're black. You may be from Asia, Europe, Americas, Australia, Pacific but still black in appearance. I think people get caught up in thinking to be Black means looking like the majority of sub Saharan Africa. Black is classified by skin color rather than nation.
