    no.

    Somalis are not Arab.

    Again, Somalis have 90+ e1b1, which is most common in Somalia (and Morocco 80+%) and originated in N.East Africa

    Somalis are not a mix of Arab /negroid.

    stop lying.

    Somalis are part black African and arab its fact...Hmm lets see you have most subsaharan africans looking not exactly the same but similiar in facial features,hair texture etc and then when we get east africans which just happen to be very close to arabs in north africa and the middle east, its like all of a sudden the people there have facial features and hair textures that look like would be a mix of the two. Its a hard one to work out isnt it?

    What are you? Half white half black?

    Also are there issues between dark skin black girls and light skinned black girls?
    Lol at your last sentence. Yes, please leave the house. My race is irrelevant, you can see what gives me reason to be concerned about this is all.

    "HLA antigens of the Somali population are not categorised as well as those of other international ethnic groups. We analysed the HLA antigens of 76 unrelated Somalis who lived in the west of England. HLA -A, -B, -C and DRB1 typing was performed by polymerase chain reaction using sequence-specific oligonucleotide probes (PCR-SSOP) at a low-intermediate resolution level. Phenotype frequency, gene frequency and haplotype frequency were used to study the relationship between Somalis and other relevant populations. The antigens with highest frequencies were HLA -A1, A2, and A30; B7, B51 and B39; Cw7, Cw16, Cw17, Cw15 and Cw18; DR 13, DR17, DR8 and DR1. HLA haplotypes with high significance and characteristics of the Somali population are B7-Cw7, B39-Cw12, B51-Cw16, B57-Cw18. The result of HLA class I and class II antigen frequencies show that the Somali population appear more similar to Arab or Caucasoid than to African populations. The results are consistent with hypothesis, supported by cultural and historical evidence, of common origin of the Somali population."How can you be black and not negroid? Thats like saying a group is "white" but not Caucasian

    No.

    Somalis are 90%+ e1b1 which is the most common in Somalia and Morocco and some in southern Europe and East Africa.


    Somalis are not Arabethnically
    Arabs have different hablogroups.

    also no.. Somalis are more related to Berbers/negroids then Arabs.

    lol. we don't even share much similar gene groups with arabs from the middle east.

    Somalis are very homogeneous any way

    lol, I'm from east Africa and over there it's depends on ur colour, so if ur light skinned ur not black, but ur still african. Nothing to do with hair, for example I'm dark skinned with wavy /straight hair, still black in Africa. I've noticed though some black Americans I met thought I was wearing a wig! and they thought my brother was a dark skinned Indian lool. My sister has super curly hair but she's very light skinned, she's considered light in Africa, and is thought Asian here, doesn't really matter though. Only ur own race will really understand who and what u are. Both myself, my brother and my sister are automatically recognised by our people.
    It is to do with hair if you're in Latin America. And no one say, "we're not in Latin America." This is the internet, someone can be and probably will be. Race is a global issue and so there needs to be a common, international understanding of what it is.

    And they are still seen as black in Africa because of apartheid.

    Ignore me if you want but you are wrong, sister.
    Somalis depending on which kind (we're obviously discussing the fairer, finer haired ones, but can include darker ones as well like the rapper K'Naan who is clearly black but in this way




    as opposed to black in this way



    Even with the similar hairstyle you can see differences. Those differences are because of shared however distant blood with West Asians or Europeans. Just...accept it. Now does that discount K'naan and his kind as black, hell no. At least you see that much

    What kind of somali are you? The fair soft haired kind, the medium toned curly haired kind, or the Negroid looking kind?
    You strike me as the negroid looking kind that uses internet anonymity to purport as a fairer and holier Somali, hence your outrage that Somalis are dark skinned and confused for Negroid.
    na.

    you keep guessing! Only a few trusted TSR members have seen me.

    but if scientists classify Somalis as not negroid, what can I do?

    what's worse is people think we are half arabs lol.
    they need to stop thinking all Africans look the same.

    Somalis do not mix.
    we just look different dude.

    The Moroccans you think of who look like this



    are Arab mixed. There is a divide in Morocco as well, within the ethnic groups, and within the black race.

    You seem to take being a somali as credible source and evidence but have yet to engage with academic facts, and please acknowledge that you have read my other post which denotes what makes Somali mistaken as Arab.

    That's because east Africa is the mother of humans.

    Excuse me? That is literally what I had to do for you: Let me then go back for you, sweetheart. You seem angry because you seem confused.

    Somalis are of the "haplogroup M" which has "origins in and outside of Africa, from Asia." This can imply that they have some form of Asian or Arab blood. Now the bloodtype is the "E-V68 haplogroup" which is blood shared between Afroasiatic groups and Western Asia and Europe. Hence North Africans being seen as Europid or Aethiopid. I get it's frustrating but calm down because clearly there is a difference in common traits between some East Africans and Sub saharan Africans for a reason.

    I think the missfats chick is mentally ill or one of those people in denial. It's best we leave her to herself so she can figure things out at her own pace.
