Tell me about East Africa.
Are they mixed niggers/arabs? Whats their history, anything of note?
Seems to be very little of whats supposed to be the place where modern humans originated
Like another bloke said, East Africa is a huge place, you'll have to be more specific. Though what I can gather from your pic you seem more interested in the northeastern part? A lot of history there, Axum, Egypt, Punt, a dozen or so historically relevant city-states, religious significance, etc.
That's not what afro-asiatic means though, it's a language family not a term for half blacks/MENA. Though they probably originate from some proto-language, which in turn implies a proto-people.
East Africa was always historically the most developed and interconnected part of Sub-Saharan Africa. They used to have ties all along the classical world.
Every modern species is just as far evolved as any other. You, a birchnut tree, and E. coli are all equally distant from the original life on Earth and just as highly evolved to suit their niche. This also applies to all modern humans
Evolution doesn't work like in fucking pokemon where there's neat tiers and power levels.
While yes, we did back cross (Ethio-Somali, Ethiopic and Ancient North Africa) but it's inaccurate to state we are Caucasoid. Rather Europeans and Middle Easterns/North South Asians are "Aethioids".
We retained the original phenotype of the second wave (first are ancestors of Ancient South Asians & Australoids) of migrating Africans out of the continent the most (with later Nilo-Saharan intergression) those Eurasian people absorbed Neanderthal, Mal'ta-Buret' (north Asian) and/or Ancient South Asian ancestry.
What, didn't quite catch that. Are you saying that east africans are older caucasians than actual caucasians from the Caucasus region or something? They migrated back, what, 20-something thousand years ago? Plenty of people in the Eurasian landmass by then.
Cushites are a more recent ethnicity.
The San peoples are a better example of what the earliest humans were like.
You do know that Caucasian wasn't intended to mean 'people who came from the Caucasus region' when it was used as a biological term, also that it's actually not a valid technical term for distinguishing genetic differences between populations these days.
Ethio-Somalis, Ancient North Africans and Ethiopics returned to Africa over 30k years ago.
This is an incorrect assessment for two reasons
1. Khoi-San like San have Paleo-African ancestry (first modern humans + a hybrid Human/Neanderthal like hominid) unlike the rest of the World
2. Unlike Khoisan, Ancient East African dna correlates to non-African human populations as being largely subsets of East African biodiversity. They migrated out and peopled the rest of the world, some stayed close then returned.
Also fun fact Khoi (and some San) have East African/Sandawe ancestry.
Are you two east africans? How did you get it in your head that East Africans came before Eurasians if they are Eurasians in their yDNA and mtDNA?
I'm going to stop here because population migrations and genetics is not my strong suit, and wait for someone more knowledgeable to post and dispel this nonsense. Literally the first I've heard of this.
The same "protohumans" of anatomically modern humans are not the same as todays east africans or more of a descendant to them than you and I, you realize this yes? They are literally maghrebi people who went back to sub-saharan Africa in the paleolithic, mingled with the southeast africans and voila, you have east africans.
No both are me
Is someone else.
Regardless Tiskoff is the foremost expert on African genetics for the better part of 25+years and while you may not understand human migration or genetics I provided very clear and accessible sources that show East African genetics
Ancient North Africans diverged from back crossing East Africans, looking at genetics here
>The results show that the most ancient haplogroup is L3*, which would have been introduced to North Africa from eastern sub-Saharan populations around 20,000 years ago. Our results also point to a less ancient western sub-Saharan gene flow to Tunisia, including haplogroups L2a and L3b. This conclusion points to an ancient African gene flow to Tunisia before 20,000 BP. These findings parallel the more recent findings of both archaeology and linguistics on the prehistory of Africa. The present work suggests that sub-Saharan contributions to North Africa have experienced several complex population processes after the occupation of the region by anatomically modern humans. Our results reveal that Berber speakers have a foundational biogeographic root in Africa and that deep African lineages have continued to evolve in supra-Saharan Africa
it clearly shows Ancient North Africans coming from Ancient East Africans through.
Simple admixture models cannot account for us so I refer you back to >>676277
The article in which this was mentioned only talked about the Khoe-Kwadi tribe having a Eurasian admixture of up to 14%.
Whether or not a back migration really did take place 3000 years ago, the main Y-DNA of the San peoples is still much older than the Haplogroup E1b1b of Cushites
Semitic speakers are more mixed than the purer blooded Cushitic speakers.
While differences between Somalis and Ethiopians may be hard to tell one trait is that the Ethiopians are stockier and lighter skinned from living at a higher and colder altitude and some have freckles while Somalis, Afars, and Beja tend to be darker skinned taller and more slender.
Genetically speaking Haplogroup E1b1b is about as similar to E1b1a as R1b is to R1a.
While there is a certain degree of recent Eurasian ancestry from Oorlam populations most of that "Eurasian" ancestry is actually derived from Stone Bowl Culture East Africans
Though of course San and Khoi are derived largely from a collection of distinct and separate Ancient South African hunter gather apiculturist groups.
Don't generalize Ethiopians we vary widely given relatively recent Imperial land grabs and subjugation of Abyssinia and previous regimes. There is no standard Ethiopian, diaspora like myself aren't all that representative.
>Semitic speakers are more mixed
Well that's not unique to Ethiopia, South Arabians speakers are cushitic influenced like Mehri. In fact their languages show clear cushitic substrate.
Eh. I wouldn't call them freckles, more like sunspots like pic related. Some Somali have them.
