    I think negroid or Africoid sounds a little more up to date than congoid. Africoid sounds a bit to extensive, since Africa has Europids ,Caucasoids and Aethiopids in both the East and West .From what I've heard Negroids are said to be a mix between jungle pygmies and some taller Tutsi like Africans. If this is correct then congoid seems some what accurate considering most pygmies are from the Congo region.


    Bantu or Congoid type Congolese.




    It just sounds dated or limited to DR Congo to me.

    Africanoid is a bit weird since Africa was originally used by the Romans to refer to present-day Tunisian.I voted Negroid.

    Negroid makes the whole race thing even more confusing, since it makes you confuse skin color with race. I'd say that's the worst option. Don't really care about which one should replace it, I guess Congoid is alright.

    Africoid is the most correct term and has been championed by Keita ("The Persistence of Racial Thinking and the Myth of Racial Divergence". American Anthropologist")! This term is meant to include all INDIGENOUS African features. Rather those features be the Nigerian, Congolese, Fulani, Ethiopians, Somalians, ECT. You know the problem with the other terms suchas 'Negroid' and 'Congloid' is that they imply that this is the only way to be an authentic African.

    The term 'Negroid' is only meant to encompass the wide nose, thick lipped, prognathism, variation of Africans. Which gives the false impression that this is the default type of African and that the Tutsi, Fulani, Khosians, and East Africans features are not as African as the former.

    The word Congloid is equally faulty because it seems to only be referring to the type of variation found in that one geographic region in Africa. To limit the variation to one region on the second largest continent with the most indigenous variation in the world, is basially the same thing that the term 'Negroid' has done! Where does that leave the East Africans, the Khosians, the Tutsi, the Fulani?

    The term Africoid is obviously to most scientific the other terms are simply based on social interpretations which are very misinformed and outdated.

    I use both Negroid and Sudanid interchangeably. Negro is not a bad word in spanish but since in this forum there's a good number of americans I try to use Sudanid.

    Sudanid is supposed to be a subtype of Negroid/Congoid.

    The problem with Negroid, is that there are other black peoples in the world which are black, too, but that has no genetic link with black Africans. The people of South India, the Melanesians and the Australian Aboriguins, for instance.

    However, everybody knows what Negroid means: Niger-Congo peoples of Africa.
