Mad Skillz said:"Racial Types
Though Ethiopians are generally Negroid in pigmentation and hair type, their Caucasoid (Mediterranean) accretions are evident in their cranial and facial morphology, which distinguishes them from pure West African Negroids.

Why submit only half the article? The other half you conveniently left out states "in addition some anthropologist have argued that their craniofacial features resemble those of Caucasoids (terms not usually used by scientist today) are not explained by admixture because there is none. Scientist believe that modern humans originated in Africa, and that all non-Africans carry a later mutation that occured in what is today known as Ethiopia. The man who first carried this mutation is known as the Eurasian Adam, and lived in what is today Ethiopia."
I apologize, Destee. But anyone who deliberately chops up articles to serve their purpose and uses references from Passarino, a known fraud, and Carleton S. Coon a known fraud and a self-proclaimed white supremacist, has credibility issues. I hate dishonesty. How can anyone seriously engage in honest dialogue with someone who fronts like this? Cut and paste from a portion of 'sources' without providing a direct link nor understanding who these degenerates are does a diservice to people who might want to learn the truth. Even clueless amateurs know Passarino and Coon are crackpots that aren't taken seriously by accredited intellectuals let alone their peers. You can routinely find their 'work' in places such as Stormfront, Sons of the Confederate Veterans and the local trailer park venue. So if I appear hostile this is why. I thought this thread would pertain reasonable dialogue regarding the natural diversity of African populations yet it turned out to be nothing more than a cesspool of disinformation and an insecurity outlet for women who believe Black men desire non-Black or Ethiopian women with "european features."
Yet still, I shall continue to claim and HONOR my own ETHIOPIAN heritage before I shall refer myself as any type of "American".
I'm sure, my brother that you most likely also KNOW the statement that is being made when a Black woman comes on this site and posts this kind of mis-information from someone named COON!
This says volumes....
