Only about 5% of the somali population is mixed. As for Male models your looking at the American fashion industry but in Europe and else where the Skinny men are in. Also your body structure has to do with the environment your people live in. As i said to you and to your women Big men are good looking but we love our men just the way they are. Skinny and beautifull. Also your forgetting that your men are mostly shorter than ours. To each his own. Are you implying that our features have been tampered with? Also you havent answered my question, what does an African Look Like?
It depends who you ask what an African looks like when you go to a Austrian they would describe the stereotypical West African but to me Africa is diverse so there is no look but in the western world they have their own description of a African look which differs from whoever you ask
We are not as short as you think,SOME bantu from east africa are shorter due to their admixture with the pygmies from the congo,all my WA people over here are over 6 feet tall and many of us tower EAs,as I said I'm originally from Ghana home of Boris Kodjoe and my ethnic group produces big mascular people
And I agree that everyone with their preferences

Our features are only found in Africa and amongst people of the diaspora,that makes us unique on the other hand East Africans look like black crackers (not all of them though,just the stereotypical few).
West Africans are considered beautiful in the west,compared to both sides West African male models sell,I was a part time male model as well and they would only choose the real Africans over those that look like arabs/black cracker etc. because there is no market for them,although I agree that SOME females are better in that industry although many are apparently disowned back home like Iman and Yasmin who pose naked
All I can do is lol @ this response. Typical chauvinistic behavior from West Africans. No lie, some have the audacity to mention that we East Africans are the ones who are blatantly racist. Black arab crackers? Also, not all of us are skinny and male modeling is seen as homo/gay in our culture so that is why no one pursues that route. I and both my two brothers were modeling as kids but once we grew older my father cut it off b/c that is for women.

Does anyone actually know if them somila types know how to use soap/water/deodorant? Geez, the ones I work around stink, and I mean, a god-awful, don't know how to wipe their butts, stink. Don't what to even image what their "lady parts" smell like. Just a nasty, nasty people.

We should deport them all and replace them with "low-caste" folks from India.

Im not saying we are better but we are definately risk-takers,its a cycle to get somewhere you have to start somewhere and make use of what you have in the end you look back to where you started from,the compliments wont take you very far but they will help you get there,every person with their culture but I dont know of a culture the opposes modelling let alone religion that opposes modelling,there are clothing designers that design clothes acceptable to see for all viewers,it is a models work to market them to whoever the target market

We dont sell ourself or bodies. Some of us choose to be modest. In what sense are you Risk takers. One time you state we are somehow half breeds. Its just amazing that West Africans somehow view themselves are the only true Africans, than where the hell did we come from. Also if u want to believe the world that is bullshit science like or not you came from us. We are the father and mother of all humanity.

Of course they use deodrants,soap,water and perfume! You can't judge a whole population of people by two or three people! Maybe you should just kindly buy them a deodrant and pretend its present for something! Maybe they might get the hint?? just a suggestion!

Look Stephen Appiah, I've got nothing against West Africans and I didn't say anything inauspicious about your country but yet you try to demean ethiopians and East Africa. I could go on and on about the child slavery issues and the child labor problems in West Africa. My father was in Ghana for the Africans Nations Cup this past January, and he couldn't believe how dirty Accra, your capital city was. He said the sanitation all over the city has got to be the worst hes ever seen. That is saying something b/c my father has traveled throughout the world including many countries in Africa.

Its all good and I know Ghana is doing well economically than most other Africans. They just found some oil too so I hope the best for Ghanaians.
