Papua New Guineans are not related to the people of Africa. But they are part of the Negro (black) race collectively. Though there are times of confusion thought by many that they are Africans.

To answer this thread, yes melanesians are descendents of Africans back in the rock ages. Now they are not "Africans". Would you call a south American native "Asian" even though they are mongoloid? Doesn't matter where they came from, after thousands of years of genetic mutations and evolving customs they pretty much have their own unique identity now. Africans don't claim Melanesians and Melanesians don't claim Africans so why are certain people here so desperate to slump them into one category. And seems like the same people that have been debating this topic from years ago are still going at it. Lol come on guys. It doesn't matter ancestry...we're all humans anyway.

And one more thing, when I say they migrated out of Africa ages ago, I mean 50, 000 years and are therefore genetically very different to Africans!

Dude you must really deslike melanesians, I piity you, I know alot of people in PNg that are part Melanesian and Polynesian. Maybe you should pick on Samoans, and leave Melanesians alone. Coz trust me Samoa is a small Island in the South Pacific compared to where I'm from PNG.
I've seen a lot of posts from that dude in this thread and another one also about melanesians here on Topix. Hahahaha he is so desperate to categorize! The thing I don't get is Africans don't claim melanesians and vise versa so why does everyone else have their panties in a bunch over this. obviously they are black people but NOT African.
And btw Africa is a very diverse continent and the people don't just have one type of look.

I agree. I wish they can see th comon sense in it. Well really dont care but. They have blind prejudgdice. Im even starting to think it a natural impulse to them. Or maybe result of subliminal subconcious programming from tv,society opinion,and "black" word associated with everything negative makes them "sleeper racist cells" and they dont know.

The Italians, Greeks, Turks, Spanish,(Latino), Arabs, can and do call themselves white. Even some East Asian people can and do call themselves white because they have white skin. I've seen on various official forms a category for "mixed-race white". Yes, they can be called white too. An Italian from Italy and a Swedish from Sweden all get to be white and European. I don't care how different they look or how diverse their genetic backgrounds are, they are still called white and European. It's kind of funny. I know of Melanesian and Aboriginal people calling themselves black not just because of the same skin, hair texture, and features, but similar experiences with their European counterparts.(not trying start anything here, just what I've heard from some of them) Clearly the term "black" is as broad as it is when I was taught it as a child. Black does not just mean from Africa, just as white does not mean just from Europe. Everybody is hollering this "we all come from Africa BS", yet, if these people (who have obvious commonalities) call themselves and eachother black, it's a problem. It's too ridiculous really.

You are savages. You still eat each other and fck each other. Please, do not talk about Africans. Papua are not related to Africans. Sheesh! Got nothing against your lot but keep Africa out of your mouth. How did you people find your way to any black forum anyways? LOL!
