    I DON'T see ANYTHING on this pic who evocates 'negroid' input, even after having read by himself he has 12% so called Nigerian ancestry!
    I thought rather in a dominantly NW dark haired European; if Italian, rather North, but not convinced by this last choice spite not impossible (what is impossible in types: only a few cases).

    I'm just better at picking stuff out than you. More often than not I'm right regarding these topics. Iv seen enough Dominicans in my area to be able to pic things out. It was a combo of face shape/ forehead and hair/ brows. He don't have "negroid" traits, but I see what a mixed person looks like and he has those traits.

    You classified me as being french with 1/8th negroid...
    If we assume blue is analogous to negroid, and yellow to "caucasian" or white
    I'd be closer to being yellow, with a shade of green, a color which is intricate enough to be able to distinguish the components
    You know, that's the whole principle of analyzing and classifying a face...
    Explain your original thought process, and say what made you think I was mostly french, with minor negroid DNA...
    You could've classified me as an arab, as far as I know, since I have a similar skin tone and hair texture...
    I would find it interesting to be able to attribute my facial features to different ancestral origins

    ON the unique pic I see here, we cannot say too much thing. Your skull is not very visible. Your profile doesn't evocate any negroid "blood", not even typical Arab; maybe with other pics and other angles I could say more? Your hair texture is not evident on this pic, and black hair occurs among true Eurasians, western ones too.

    On this picture, I doubt of your judgement. I would say there are A LOT of supposed "white" European with SSA DNA according to you

    I think so too. It can be from anywhere, especially European.

    They're just t-rolling, Moesan. From that profile he could be pure Irish with curly black hair. I've known more than a few.

    I don't know the reality for this man. If he has 14% of (true) SSA origin (some Americans think Arabs are "Blacks" and evey African drop of blood is shame!) he has nothing on his visible phenotype which evocates it. The proof that a little % of "foreign" autosomes can stay hidden. It occurs in families where this little % is seen on some children and NOT on their brothers/sisters.

    That's right. I chose at random, because there are heavy people around here who don't like those from the Balkans. Although we are in the age of globalization. ;)

    Obviously, by these standards Brian May of "Queen" must have SSA ancestry. Or perhaps he's part Levantine because of his nose???



    It's always tickled me that in addition to being one of the best rock musicians ever, he's an astrophysicist with published papers.

    Thomas Jefferson had numerous children with his mulatto (or quadroon) slave Sally Hemmings. Some of his children looked so white that they left as young people and passed into white society right away (William and Harriet), and their descendants are lost to history. Others stayed in the black community, and some passed later.(descendants of Madison and Eston)

    This is the truncated family tree:


    Eston married another free woman of color, also presumably "white" looking, moved to Ohio, and the family "passed" as white.

    This is Eston's son John Wayles Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson's grandson, so, either one-eighth or one sixteenth black.

    No one had a clue.

    IMO his nose is by no way Levantine, at first sight: rather the expression of European diverse inputs.

    It seems that the "one drop rule" still exists ...
