Iím not trying to offend anyone, but I have seen many African Americans who look like or have Asians features.

I have seen African America women who look just like dark-brown Asians from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and all across south Asia.

Many black Americans have slanted eyes, high cheekbones, and wide type noses just like Asians.

Do you recognize these similarities?

Many people in my family have Asiatic like eyes but we never bother to question it we just say oh well we got Indian in are family or whatever. I'm not 100% sure of any Native Ancestry but most certainly wouldnt doubt it as some of the women in my fam have jet black hair that stretch all the way down there back. The only non black Ancestry I do know of is European. And me being light skinned I have often been mistaken for different Asiatics, Chinese or Philipino but thats only when my hair is braided.

I have also seen black women that look south Asians and black men with slanted eyes. I think the climate in West Africa is very similar to the climate in south Asians, that is why those features are similar, plus the mixture of European genes with West African genes.

probably they look similar cause the white peoples features are very unique when compared with either asian or african.
like, neither asian or african got the kind of nose that very typical europeans possess.
so, i guess, if white people would not exist, you would not notice that africans and asians got common features.

That's because human facial features can only differ so much. There are plenty of people around the world who could be mistaken partially for groups they do to belong in.Some South Asians (as in the Indian Subcontinent) and Hispanics can look very similar. This is often you will find why Hispanic women will often play the part of Indian women on porn sites because the are very few Indan porn stars.

I have seen some white people with some Asian features too. Some white people look mixed with Asian such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Marinda Cosgrove, Justin Long, Kevin Jonas, Bill Kaulitz? These are some examples. I have also seen some other Europeans with feminine round faces that look a bit East Asian.

Well at one time, the entire Southeast Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Phillippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, etc) as well as South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka) was populated by Australoid people that have some similar features with modern Africans. Some tribes of these still exist in pure blood today, look at the Jarawa in the Andaman islands off the Burma/Thailand coast in Indian ocean. Also look at Bouganville Islanders off northern coast of Australia. These people were part of a wave that left the African continent 70,000 years ago. They hugged the coastline and other warm/wet environments as they moved out of Africa.

Then around 30,000 years ago, another group left the African continent, taking a more inland route from the Suez cutting straight across Iraq, Iran etc all the way to Mongolia area. From there one group moved east into northeastern China, another moved south into Afghanistan. That is where the Caucasoid and Mongoloid split from each other. From Afghanistan these people moved south into India and Iran and west into Europe. In Middle East due to desert climate, the Australoids were mainly confined to the coast so they got easily absorbed in. In the Indian subcontinent due to fertility of climate and abundance of food, the Australoids outnumbered the Caucasians in great ratios always. In modern day population of South Asia, it is more Caucasian mixed the more north and west you go towards Pakistan, and more Australoid mixed the more south and east you go into India and Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Same thing happened in South-east Asian countries. The northern Chinese type began moving south and encountering the Australoid people that had multiplied to large numbers, just like subcontinent, due to lot of rivers and fertile areas. So likewise, the more north you go in East Asia the more pure Mongoloid mixture, and the more south you go the more pure Australoid. Even southern China and Taiwan have Australian aboriginal looking indigenous people that probably got mixed out over thousands of years.

True to some extent. But I would say the caucasian element in Indians is exaggerated. Only Pakistanis have a very signficant Caucasian element. People inern part of West India like Gujaritis and Maharastrians are more Australoid. Even in places like Punjab in India, majority of the people are more Australoid than Caucasaoid. Only some of the upper classes are more Caucasian. The reason why so many Pakistanis have strong Caucasian element is because of mixture with Arab/Afghan/Iranian/Tur (although Turks carried signficant Mongoloid admixture) Muslims over centuries.

Yes northwestern subcontinent has received several Caucasian groups in post-Stone Age times. It's not only the Islamic invasions that brought them in but also in pre-Islamic times, there was still constant inflow of migrants from Scythians and Huns and Parthians and Greeks, etc. However the mixing of Ancestral North Indians (ANI, the early Caucasian group) and Ancestral South Indians (ASI, the Australoid ones) happened at a prehistoric stage initially.
The Hindu caste groups arose indigeneously from that prehistoric mixed group. Over time several of the pre-Islamic Caucasian groups were integrated into the warrior castes. The difference and racialization of caste began with Muslim invasions as the new Caucasian groups did not see the need to swear allegiance to the Brahmins (from the prehistoric mix) as these groups did not convert to Hinduism upon arrival in subcontinent.

In all honesty, the Greeks left little to no trace of genes in the Indian people. Some Afghans, and Pakistanis of Afghan origin , may have a little though.

I agree. My boy cousins have chineese eyes. To a point where white people ask what race are they. They have light skin and flat noses with small nostrils. It's a common thing. My eyes are also like that with the epicantic fold and all. And I'v seen many more. I live in S.Africa and the Chinese people dont seem different, in fact my cousins look like the little chinese children.

Keep in mind that Africa has also been affected culturally and biologically from Asia. This is especially true in places lkike Somalia. But I think it is also true in West Africa and Southern Africa. Before the arrival of Europeans and their racism, there was always a lot of interact between Asia and Africa. It is a sly trick to talk about Autrailia and not mention Africa which is between Asia and Autrailia.

This statement has truth to but is not complete. Watch this movie and you will see why some blacks and Asians have similar features. Hidden Colors: The Untold History of People of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent by Tariq Nasheed.

Scholars and beginning to admit that Southeast Asians migrated to Madagascar which is Africa and further Australia and New Guinea. There is some reason to believe that Malays came from the Asian mainland. And there are indications that Chinese came to the Americas hundreds of years before the white man did, but did not rape pillage and murder the way whites did. They cannot account for the difference in complexions. But the non-African blacks have genetic ties to the Southeast Asians yellows and light browns. Plus, there are many blacks in places like the Philippines and India. I have been told that the Khmer people of Cambodia still refer to themselves as blacks. But not knowing their languages, that is difficult to verify.
