"A trip to Melanesia or Central Asia would pretty much fix anyone's preconceived notions of race."

So true Judge_Smails.

I don't get this thread. Did the OP think we weren't aware of the existence of these peoples?

Agreed, having only three is just too broad.

Aeta of the Philippines


Coca-Cola Philippines Little Red Schoolhouse ñ Jenny Sanchez story - YouTube

The little girl in the video looks mixed. Aetas that are more pure look almost identical to people of African-descent like this girl

Papuans on the other hand have some more distinct features and they wouldn't blend-in as easily with Sub-Saharan Africans

I'm pretty sure that there are LOTS of people who didn't know about the existence of these peoples.

Good that you are not one of those people!

I see a lot of confusion regarding race, ethniciy, and travel. First off, those tribes that look similar, in an around the pacific and asia, are related and did migrate out of africa thousands of years ago. One of the last places they stopped was papua....they are not the same race as Polynesians. as for aborigines and other african looking people out of africa: they are all related. the migrations did not happen all at once, these things take thousands of years to move peoples a few miles. it also takes a thousand generations to create a race. so if you remove all of the new dna from the species of pacific blacks, they will all show a close relation, within a percent or two. yes we are all related in that aspect, butin terms of timelines those tribes aforementioned are related to one another and not to the surounding races. ie asian, ploynesian(which are actually closely related to Filipinos ), and indian.....they are african by race and are slowly changeing, just like we see in the aboriginal.

The blacks of the Pacific are living there for dozens of thousands of years.

So, no, they are not "Africans".

Africa is a continent very far away from the Pacific.

I came from Solomon Islands and we have a lot of people with unique features blended as on in the beautiful islands. In the Central Solomon Islands, you'll find black people with white blonde hair, if you travel further to the western province you'll discover black indigenous people with soft black and straight hair with natural beauty. However, if you move east into the Solomon Islands you'll find black people with strong steel wool hair (black/brown hair).
