    Default Cape Verde and Cape Verdeans 🇨🇻


    The Republic of Cape Verde (pronounced /ˌkeɪp ˈvɜ:rd/ ) Portuguese: Cabo Verde, pronounced [ˈkabu ˈveɾdɨ]) is an island country, spanning an archipelago located in the Macaronesia ecoregion of the North Atlantic Ocean, off the western coast of Africa, opposite Mauritania and Senegal.
    It is slightly more than 4,000 km in area with an estimated population of over 500,000. The capital of Cape Verde is Praia. The previously uninhabited islands were discovered and colonized by the Portuguese in the 15th century, and attained independence from Portugal in 1975.
    As of 2007, Cape Verde is classified as a developing country after being promoted from Least Developed Countries status. About 20% of the population lives on less than $1.25 (U.S.) a day.

    Around 71 percent of the population is Creole of mixed black African and Portuguese descent. The remainder of the population is mostly black Africans, with a small number of whites. The European men who colonized Cape Verde did not usually bring wives or families with them. As female African slaves were brought to the islands, inter-marriages occurred.[10]
    More than 85 percent of the population is nominally Roman Catholic,[16] though for a minority of the population Catholicism is syncretized with African influences.[2] The largest Protestant denomination is the Church of the Nazarene; other groups include the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Assemblies of God, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, and various other Pentecostal and evangelical groups.[16] There are small Baha'i communities and a small Muslim community.[16] The number of atheists is estimated at less than 1 percent of the population.

    Cape Verdeans who could pass for people of the New world . Brazilians of course are number one, since Cape verdeans are basically Brazilians with out Amerindian influence.

    Brazilians?



    Dominican or Cuban?


    Haitian or black Dominicans?

    The Cape Verdeans i know here in the tri-state area always get confused for Dominican instantly, and the very light more portugese looking ones get confused for p.r. Its amazing how much they look like Dominicans, also because sometimes Iberian + Afro can produce Pseudo Tri-racial and Pseudo-Zambo looks, more often Pseudo-Triracial looks. But the closest i have seen to Dominicans is hands down Haitian "Mulattos" are indistinguishable from Dominicans, the only thing that sometimes distincts cape verdeans is some of them have this distant portugese influence look to them, also being of Sudanid Ancestry mostly where as D.R is mostly Congolese/Angolan ancestry also makes a subtle differnce, this is also the difference with Brazil, the Central-African influence is in my opinion the source of the "Bunda" which in itself is a Congolese word, that is found more commonly in Dominican and Brazilian women, this is less common but not absent in the sudanid sources for Cape Verde. I have met Cape Verdean women with very nice bodies here, but it doesnt compare to walking through washington heights on a summer day, (you will need a neck brace). In other words Dominican and Brazilian women have higher Bunda ratios

    I think i'd be able to fit in smoothly into cape verdean despite some of my afroindegenous features, because some iberian mixes produce this as well.

    It is curious that Africans never managed to colonize Cape Verde, and that they had to way to the Portuguese masters to bring them there.

    Definitely. Seeing the rich and elite dancing and drinking in clubs of Petionville I thought it was a club in Santiago. Light skinned/White/tri-racial looking people.

    This is a dumb comment, first of Africans lived in Climates and Societies that where so balanced at the time that there was no need to "conquer" anything, people who need to "conquer" are often people who are unconfortable in their settings, such as people who live in cold or arid, or atrocious climates, looking for better land. If i was living in a place with very fertile soil and a balanced society based on community and matrifocal lineages i would not attempt to cross an ocean and risk my life.

    Also Africans did go to some islands without "Europeans" bringing them to them in case thats what you are wondering, the Bissago islands are an example of this.

    No. It is not dumb. Never heared about West Africans conquering the Americas? Well, the truth is that they didn't even settled Cape Verde. That island was empty when Portuguese arrived.

    It is also false that "Africans had societies so balanced there was no need to conquer". The Bantu expansion devasted the Pigmey and Khoi-San populations of Central and Southern Africa. So, don't tell me a fantasy about ecologically ballanced bantues.

    Conclusion. Bantues were pretty bad sailors.
