    Correct,

    She is actually the last member of her tribe, the Bo, that went extinct with her passing.

    Had I not known I probably would have guessed something like Madagascar as well.

    Andaman tribes are interesting, they look African, but are very different genetically. Goes to show that phenotype can be misleading sometimes.

    lol. Not Jovialis. At least in those specific cases of your posts I am not researching on the internet. I was always interested in non-European and non-SSA ethnicities. I read a lot about them and I agree with you. There is a historical error in classifying them as black. Dravidians, Adamaneses, Austronesians are not SSA populations and cannot be confused or generically called "blacks" or "Africans". Far beyond skin color or hair type, there are other anthropometric characteristics that differentiate them from SSA.

    I only said it in jest, good job. You need to have a special eye for it.

    I think the Sans are tougher to confuse for some Negrito peoples.

    Also, imo, I would say some Negrito look "Blacker" than some Africans.

    ... there are pockets of Somali refugees all around, ... I was surprised at their numbers even in Portland -Maine.

    ... also many Italians are familiar with the phenotypes of their former Colonies :)

    I guess they must be better at discerning them from Africans, than the physical anthropologists from the pre-genetics era than.

    imho, the facial feature of many Somalis in particular are closer to non-African faces, ... (Euro-Caucasus with dark skin tone)

    Indeed, because they have Eurasian admixture from the middle east.

    What I was referring to was the Negritos; hence their name. They weren't able to tell them apart from Africans, because of how they look. But genetics has made it abundantly clear that they are much different, despite the phenotypic similarity.

    I feel like I could also discern East Africans, from West Africans, from South Africans with some degree of confidence.
