If we divide them as north, south etc? Or is that incorrect? Mainly because of their weather, religion and ethnicity. Can you guys suggest some homogenous countries?

Sorry, just stuck on a question this morning. Hope u can help!!

Africa isn't a country. It's probably one of the least homogeneous continents in the world; the demographics of Egypt or Morocco are very different to those of South Africa and in turn to those of Kenya. Weather is extremely varied over the continent since it is home to both some of the largest rainforests in the world, as well as the worlds largest (hot) desert, to some very high ranging mountains (also the home of several glaciers) and plateaus (e.g. that on which Addis Ababa sits), all of which will have very different climates.

The most homogeneous continent is probably Antarctica, which is mostly a desert.

Also stop bumping your thread, you don't need to bump it more than once a day.

North Korea is probably the most ethnically homogenous. Almost everyone there is Korean. South Korea is homogenous too, and Japan. Poland is quite homogeneous, and Portugal. African countries tend to be very ethnically diverse, even though they might look similar from a non-African’s eyes.

does a moroccan, Algerian or Egyptian from north africa look anything like a Nigerian, Ghanian or liberian from west? why do some east africans from the horn of africa such as Ethiopians, Somalis, Eritreans etc look so different to other african countries with their light brown skin and curly hair, to the point where most people now believe most of them have Arabian admixture, even though these East africans have been around for longer and the human race first evolved from them? why are the majority of cape verdeans very light skinned yet have no recent mixed admixture? why do people living in madagscar look Polynesian even though they have historically never left madagascar? why do people from other african countries who move to live in south africa for better living face huge discrimation, arent they all the same people and homogeneous as you say? to the outer eurocentric eye you might not see it, but africans know that they are living in probably the most genetically diverse continent in the world. lack of research and general care for africa has led to the idea of painting africa in one brush, and this idea stemmed from racist pseudoscientists in the 17/18th century who tried to class Africans as subhumans to justify slavery and popularised the idea that all africans looked like one another (the general west african image) and so went to extremes by saying that all the other non-enslaved africans were foreigners in their own land (they agreed that north africans were actually arab, even though egyptian civilisation in africa is the oldest in the world, and they even ridiculously claimed people from the horn of africa such as ethiopians as 'Caucasian' im not bullsh*tting - go look it up, these scientists focused a lot on skull shape, nose width, hair texture and length etc and less on skin color to come to this conclusion)
I'll leave you with this recent Harvard study on the worlds most and least ethnically homogenous areas; the most diverse / least homogeneous continent is Africa.
