It's not so much based on skin color but physical appearance. Some have the various Sub-Saharan and Afro-Asiatic features. Hell, I even seen some that look like African-Americans of mixed Native American and European ancestry at various degrees.
According to some anthropological studies, Melanesians do not have African lineage.=(

Many of them are doctors and nurses and are very hospitable people. Culturally, they're very different to Africans.

I believe that there was some mixing or something. It is obvious that there is a connection in some way shape or form.

That's because Melanesians are black Asians parenthetically related to all other East Asians just like the Negritos and Australian Aborigines are as well.

i've seen some that look alot blacker than that...personally i think thier black cause they look to much like us to not be black...damn what whitey says cause they just trying to play the divide and conquer

imo aboriginals are also some kind of black for the same reason...you can't look so much like us and not be black...and for the people that claim that some blacks think all dark people are black..i don't think Indians or Sri Linkins are black

Papuans are most closely related to the peoples of their region, in other words, other islanders, Australians, and SE Asians.

Their habitat did not necessitate lightening of skin. Habitat forms human appearance. In the case of Papuans, their appearance which is African-like does not mean a thing regarding their relationships.

In fact, a Papuan is more closely related to a blonde Swede than to an African. Papuans, like Australians, are a subset of Eurasians.

This is genetics. It has nothing to do with whether the geneticist analyzing the genome is black or white!

There are other places on this planet where people of a darker hue have thrived, developed and evolved other than in sub Sahara Africa. It is a moot point to debate the origin..Migration patterns over more than 40 thousands years will attest to that... therefore natural adaptation, and genetic changes have occurred and cultural patterns emerged.

Bottom line, all people(s) of a darker hue are not sub Sahara Africans, and all people of a lighter hue are not from the the so called European countries.
