From what I've seen, some can pass for white and some are defintely Black. The majority are probably somewhere in between.

We come in all shades, colors, hues and textures, and yes sometimes somewhere in between all of these.

I mean we, as stated, as written in response to the question. It stands to reason if the answer says 'we' it would mean "WE"

Gee such a simple statement..we meaning people indigenous of the North African region of the African continent. Again,

The footballer,Zinedine Zidane,is a north African that is almost fully indistinguishable from people on the other side of the Mediterranean.

When I first spoke to East African Beauty,I mentioned a number of caucasion Bebers that played professional soccer in France's Ligue;Karim Benzema of Olympique Lyonnais and S. Nasiri of Olympique Merseille are both white people.So yes,some north Africans are white,but may have Arab,Jewish or Beber ethnicity.

I agree, my friend is Algerian who doesn't classify herself as white, but you probably would think she was a European at first glance, when she tells people she is African and non white they think she is crazy lol. There are also alot of North Africans who are dark in skin tone, that would be classified as "black" here. There are several ethnic groups within North Africa, its just hard too use the western classification of race for these groups.

please note - by "Black" we mean NEGROES, not just any old dark skinned people like South Indians.

negro=black.....it is Spanish......sometimes the point is forgotten. Therefore it is really not a racial connotation, but by whites=blancas. Perhaps dark complexion or very dark, brown, pale, blanco...bottom line dealing with physical description that involves complexions of skin.......dark complexioned South Indians can be negro=black.......oh well ball of confusion.

Some whites may have settled into the Upper Sahara long ago, but I do know that Berber and Fulani are not white.

Also...

Berber are not Arab.

Fulani are neither Arab nor Berber.

STFU Londoner...how would you know what goe son here other than what the pos liberal media that has brainwashed the world.

The fact of the matter is that black people are just as much, if not more racist towards the "somehwere in between" people than they are of white people.

I know you have some Moroccans in England. What do people consider them overthere? In France they just call all North Africans arabs.

They consider them 'browns','Arabs' or 'muslims'. They are not considered white, but definitely not black African either.

I hope you know that the Berbers are partially descendant of from ancient European who migrated into North Africa during the ice age.

"The sequencing of entire human mitochondrial DNAs belonging to haplogroup U reveals that this clade arose shortly after the “out of Africa” exit and rapidly radiated into numerous regionally distinct subclades. Intriguingly,the Saami of Scandinavia and the Berbers of North Africa were found to share an extremely young branch, aged merely &#8764;9,000 years. This unexpected finding not only confirms that the Franco-Cantabrian refuge area of southwestern Europe was the source of late-glacial expansions of hunter-gatherers that repopulated northern Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum but also reveals a direct maternal link between those European hunter-gatherer populations and the Berbers."

the berbers have strong maternal dna link with europeans because the berbers had a lot of white slaves which were brought to them mainly by the arabs. the majority of their slaves were slav that is where the word slave comfrom so o.k.
yes berbers are mixed with whites and arabs but they still africans

Any one who isn't European isn't white. Meaning, only people who ancestors are indigenous to Europe are white. Not Arabs, not Northern Indians.
