    But of course. As much as many want to hate on Europeans, they are Afrodescent. The "Caucasian" look originated in Africa.

    Of COURSE NOT.

    As LONG as your MIND is FREE from the PSEUDOSCIENCE of the WESTERN WORLD, you have the RIGHT, as an AFRICAN or a person of AFRICAN DESCENT to say that your NOSE, be it BROAD, STRAIGHT or NARROW is INDIGENOUS to the MOTHERLAND.

    Of course then the argument could be brought as to why are you antagonistic to your West African ancestry.

    Hence, the statement, the argument could be brought. Not a definite, but a postulation that could be used.

    Hmmm, I'm over here laughing because then every who is of mixed african/e. indian descent and think they owe their straight nose to their indian ancestors may be wrong? Even in my own family I hear nonsense like "she doh even look dougla but at least she have a nice straight nose".

    Chances are they are not. Consider this. The world's population is like a rainbow of features (not just color) Gradual variation occurs from one set to the other. And this was pretty constant until the advent of mass migrations where people moved faster than bodies could ever adapt to minuscule pressures of the environment. So now you have people in one are who look "green" so to speak, through natural variation. Others may look "red" and "blue" but when they mix, some come out looking "green."

    West Africans do not carry Ethiopian phenotypes (except those of the Bantu who migrated East), Neither do Indians. Yet both groups have some similarities to Ethiopians. But when they mix, many children will look just like Ethiopians. Just like many mulattos look like Arabs, etc, etc.

    That makes sense. The whole science of our appearances is interesting just because. What's real sad is the reasons most people are so caught up in it and I don't just mean the black/white/other thing but the way we tear people apart to decide if they fit the definition of beauty is crazy.
