    I belive non of the term should be applied. Africoid would be the best term for them. Because most Africans are not Bantu, or from the Congo but their all from Africa.

    Also people rarely think of North Africa as Africa, as it seen to part of greater Eurasia, or the greater Middle East.

    The North Africans in Europe act exactly like African Americans, I think it has something to do with the Pn2 clade.

    Congoid makes sense, because most SSA's are Niger-Congo speakers and seprates us from other tropically adapted people such as Andaman Islanders, Melanesians, Negritos, etc.

    Africoid is misleading. Negroid, is most used, however Congoid seems most correct I guess since it is in reference to a geographic area/larger language group.

    I personally prefer Africoid, although I tend to use Negroid all the time because its kinda intuitive like the TS said.

    Edit: I don't like congoid because I find it too exclusive. Would Kenyans be Congoid? How about Somalians or Khoisans?

    Of coarse not. Somalians would be Aethiopoid, and Khoisans would be Capoid (for the Capetown region). This negroid/congoid thing mostly concerns West African phenotypes. I call them Bantuid because they are part of the Bantu cultural expansion, but others consider Bantu too exclusive.

    Well yea, but aren't Kenyans and Capoids considered racially Negroid as is, regardless of sup-category?

    I don't see the need to divide one race into many, when the Caucasian (swidish vs. israeli), Mongoloid (chinese vs. cherokee) and Australoid (andaman islander vs. australian aborigine) seem so far-encompassing and diverse, yet small differences such as that between a South African and a West African constitute Congoid vs. Capoid? Nah, that dont sound right. I hardly see the need to call Papuans not the same race as Africans anyhow, regardless of how different they are purported to be. Its obvious that the Papuan racial type gave rise to the modern-day African.

    I voted Africoid but I think Africanoid would be a better name.

    For good reasons too, should the Sinhalese of Sri-lanka accept terms like Mongoloid/Sinid because they are Asian?, ofcourse not!, why then should non-Bantu speaking Africans accept terms like 'Bantu/Bantuid' because they are African? How does this category make sense for the most widespread ethnic group in west Africa; the Fulani?
