 “Notably, 62% of the Ethiopians fall in the first cluster, which encompasses the majority of the Jews, Norwegians and Armenians, indicating that placement of these individuals in a ‘Black’ cluster would be an inaccurate reflection of the genetic structure. Only 24% of the Ethiopians are placed in the cluster with the Bantu and most of the Afro-Caribbeans.”

Question: What is black?

Answer: Black has always meant people of African decent. So are you saying Ethiopians are not African? If your saying Ethiopians are not African American, well of course not, their Ethiopian. Duh... What's wrong with being of African decent (Black)? Absolutely nothing. So stop these stupid threads from like 2 years ago. It doesn't help anyone or anybody.

nope, wrong, the term "black" is used to describe dark skinned people of the negriod race. Ethiopians are catagorized as caucasions. are indians black bc they have dark skin? no. Ethiopians are african bc they are in the african continent.

The word Ethiopian means burnt faces which is black, and they Are mostly Cushites, not Jews because Jewish is not a race but a religion. Amenians come from the caucus mountains, where the word Caucasian came from, also Slavic area where they word Slav comes from. Get your facts straight. YouTube is not a legitamate source of infomation. Dumb ass.

Oh please. Dravidians are not black. They only share the same skin color. And Australian Aborigines (Abbo is a racial slur, BTW) are not considered Caucasian. They are their own race--closely related to Papuans.

Nope wrong, not all people of color are black, Dravidians are not related to any other African negriod blacks, the social term of black is used only to describe negriods. Not all people of color are considered black. Skin color doesn't justify a race.

If the term black is used to describe all people of color we might aswell include all light skin people to be considered white, jappaneese are light skinned, but are they considers white? No. The term black is used to describe dark negriods. Ethiopians and Indians are brown, black only coincides with the negriod race

Nope, when the Greeks were describing Ethiopia they weren't describing the actuall region of Ethiopia, just a more general description of the nubia/Cush region of Sudan and parts of ethiopia. And notice how the Greeks described those ppl as burned face, compared to how they called all other dark Africans as simply black. The Greeks noticed the caucasion features and labels them as burned skin, not black

Lol you just prooved my point. The man has pure caucasion features, look at his nose,facial structure and eyebrow, those are pure caucasion features. Caucasions have narrow faces just like many Ethiopians. They clearly do not look negriod.
This is another Ethiopian with caucasion features just like that man

I believe most Ethiopians are cushites, closely related to Somalis, Eritreans, an other cushite people.
They are indigenous Africans most of them are.
Their are some who are mixed with Semitic peoples, like the habesha I might be wrong it might be the Amhara but for the most part they are indigenous. The biggest differences is between non African and African.

Its not Caucasian features, and Ethiopians aren't Caucasian. Ethiopians are the one of the oldest Africans in Africa.

Most ethiopians would be classified as black anyways so what's the point Whites and Arab people are not claiming them. Sorry

Nope modern day Ethiopians do not have genetic connection with the first Africans, only groups like the khosians do.

Qoute from anthropologist
It’s a common misconception that Europeans have a similar skull shape and facial features because Ethiopia was the presumed exit point for humans leaving Africa. In fact, if this were true, all the people of the world would look Caucasian, and they obviously don’t. The original people that left Africa would not have resembled any  modern ethnic group of people, they had Mongoloid, Caucasoid and Australoid characteristics. The modern racial appearances are all relatively modern, when you go back past 40,000 years none of them exist in their modern form. The Caucasian appearance of some Ethiopians is in a large part due to their Eruasian ancestry.

Wrong! Because Ethiopians and Somalis both have thin noses, and its not from Caucasoid, its from adaption, both of those groups have very little admixture... The only things that Caucasoid can claim is blue/green eyes and blond hair. But even that is in confliction with each other. Because some East African Sudanese have been shown to have colored eyes with out admixture. Australian aboriginal were seen to have blond hair with out admixture. Caucasians aren't the only ones with thin noses.
And Khoi and Ethiopians Oromo are the 2 oldest groups in Africa.
