    Post Yemen (Yemenis)











    Al-Akhdam
    Al-Akhdam, is a social group in Yemen, distinguished from the majority by its members' Negrito-like physical features and stature. They are considered to be at the very bottom of the societal ladder and are mostly confined to menial jobs in the country's major cities.

    the exact origins of Al-Akhdam are uncertain. One popular account holds that they are descendants of soldiers who accompanied the Abyssinian army during the latter's occupation of Yemen in the pre-Islamic period. Once the Abyssinian troops were finally expelled at the start of the Muslim era, some of the soldiers are said to have remained behind, giving birth to the Akhdam. Another theory maintains that they are of Veddoid origin

    Al-Akhdam are neither Veddoid nor Negrito. Where do you get this information? They are Bantuid Arabid mix.

    This certainly seems possible for some of the population. As research indicates, there is a cline in the percentage of Subsaharan dna that decreases the further north one gets. The highest frequencies are found in the south. Hadramawt seems to be one place in Yemen where the presence of Subsaharan dna is substantially higher than the rest of the country.

    We have analyzed and compared mitochondrial DNA variation of populations from the Near East and Africa and found a very high frequency of African lineages present in the Yemen Hadramawt: more than a third were of clear sub-Saharan origin. Other Arab populations carried ∼10% lineages of sub-Saharan origin, whereas non-Arab Near Eastern populations, by contrast, carried few or no such lineages, suggesting that gene flow has been preferentially into Arab populations. Several lines of evidence suggest that most of this gene flow probably occurred within the past ∼2,500 years. In contrast, there is little evidence for male-mediated gene flow from sub-Saharan Africa in Y-chromosome haplotypes in Arab populations, including the Hadramawt. Taken together, these results are consistent with substantial migration from eastern Africa into Arabia, at least in part as a result of the Arab slave trade, and mainly female assimilation into the Arabian population as a result of miscegenation and manumission.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1180338/

    From Wiki footnote:
    "Substantial proportions of the Yemeni mtDNA gene pool can be assigned to sub-Saharan haplogroups (L-type) on one hand, and West Eurasian haplogroups (derivatives of M and N) on the other hand (Kivisild et al., 2004; Černý et al., 2008). The overall composite nature of Yemeni gene pool also supports its probable role as a recipient of gene flows from different parts of Africa and Eurasia. However, the major haplogroups exhibit different distributions among regional samples (Fig. 2) with lineages specific to sub-Saharan Africa being significantly more frequent in Hadramawt (60.0%) than in the western Yemeni populations where the frequency gradually decreases from Hajja in the north (34.3%) through Tihama (28.4%) to Ta’izz in the south (16.3%); the opposite is true for West Eurasian lineages (Černý et al., 2008)."






























    I chose people I thought best represented the statistics (Meaning that most of the people presented seem to show some SSA influence and are from Hadramawt, Yemen). I'm not trying to cherry pick pictures to represent the whole of Yemen. These statistics are about Hadramawt, Yemen, which has the highest SSA of all the places in Yemen.
