Lying MOORon, everyone knows when scientists say Sub Saharan African they mean black Africans. North Africans are not Sub Saharans, but nice try's idiot. Countless studies have shown that Mediterraneans have as little to NO black ancestry as any other "Caucasians". "Moors" did not hold a racial identity, stupid, it was originally meant towards North African Berbers, later on it was applied towards mostly Muslims of ANY COLOR and race including many who were white, black, brown, mixed and everything in between, moron. In other words included many Moors who were not 'black'.All your insults and denials will not make the truth go away
Africa south of the Sahara is a geographic region and not a racial type.
There are millions of autochotonous black skinned Africans in North Africa and in the Saharan region like the Black Libyans, Black Algerians, Black Egyptians, Black Sudanese.
You are lying about ancient North Africans resemblance with modern North Africans
Dark brown North Africa became lighter and lighter over time due to White settlements, White invasions, White occupations and above ALL White slavery (Punic slaves, Barbary slaves, Saqaliba, Mameluk, Janissaries, Morean Greeks sold in Egypt as late as 1828, White slaves sold by Genoans etc.)
The Moors were notorious slavers and their slaves were first and foremost Whites. The White slave trade of the Moors lasted more than a thousand years. Whites were sold in public markets of North Africa as late as the 19C.
Light skinned North Africans are concentrated in coastal areas, urban cities and isolated moutains where their White ancestors sought refuge.
In rural areas and in southern regions of North Africa, North Africans are dark brown or black skinned.
How many times do we have to tell you that the generic, that is, UNMIXED, Moors are dark brown or black skinned people who migrated from East Africa to North Africa.
The original Moors look exactly like their genetic brothers from the Horn of Africa, like the Beja or the Afars, all carriers of the E3b aka e1b1b haplogroup.
Isidore of Seville wrote in the 6C that the Moors have bodies as black as night while the skin of the Gauls is white.
Was he an Afrocentric liar?
Mauretania, or Maurusia, as it was called by Greek writers, unquestionably signified the land of the Mauri, a term still retained in the modern name of Moors, and probably meaning originally nothing but "black men."
Is this 1902 encyclopedia an Afrocentric source?
As for Mediterraneans, countless studies have shown that they have black ancestry more than any other "Caucasians".
"Black and White Moors: "The Beydanes, also known as White Moors, are the ruling caste in Mauritania. They are Arab Berber tribesmen whose ancestors established control in the seventeenth century. The Haratin, also known as Black Moors, are the descendants of black West Africans conquered and enslaved by the Beydanes centuries ago." from the New Yorker story, A Slave in New York, about a former slave who escaped in 1978, came to live in America and now works with the American Anti-Slavery Group.
