    There are between 70-80 different ethnic groups in Ethiopia, so I imagine that there are thousands of different ethnic groups within the continent itself.

    Cool thread, come across quite a few African picture threads on the net' including one *general* West African one, and this is my first time coming across a Cameroonian Picture Thread, though I've come across plenty of 'em on other equatorial and less equatorial Africans.

    One thing weird about Central and Southern Africans, though: the range of skin tones, compared with the blue black you often see in certain ethnic groups in Sudan (which is North), are not as common as one woud perhaps expect simply based on UV rays -- but then in Sudan there are fewer trees / shade I guess and all you would have is a highly reflective desert helping light-vaporizing you.
    i dunno why but I have a hard time referring to Cameroon as "Central Africa" ...maybe i'm biased though, but many Cameroonians I know consider themselves "west Africans"
    Suck my thoughts, and swallow my knowledge....BITCH!

    Exactly, they have it all wrong. All the way to Angola is considered West African, foreigners don't know anything. I have been there.

    I read that 15% of Cameroonians male were R1b-V88 so they might be a bit different from other African.

    Mainly for linguistical and geographical reasons. Cameroon is where the bantuspeaking zone starts as well as the congolese rainforest.

    I personally consider Cameroon to be part of westafrica still, although it's a border area. Cameroon is sometimes called africa in miniature because of its diverse landscapes. It also has a foot in the Sahelzone.

    That's interesting, they are still western africans because they border the Atlantic even if not officially "West Africans".

    Cultural differences between bantu speakers from central/southern africa and non-bantu speakers from westafrica are often emphasized but they might be exaggerated.
