    Default Could the OP and his family pass for East African admixed?

    Since i discovered lately that the likelyhood of me having a good portion of East African heritage (whether it is bantu or horner) is pretty real, which is why i am quite interested in their culture and people now XD

    I've heard from people that my grandpa could pass for Sudanese, and one of my aunts could pass for Eritrean. So i wonder if i myself could pass for those ethnicities of sorts?

    eitherway, without furtherado i got some pictures of myself, and my family and i would like to know how "East African" we look, whether it's Bantu/Swahili, Horner, Kenyan, Tanzanian, etc.

    give ur most honest opinion, and please take in consideration that me and my family are mixed. So pay more attention to actual features rather than hair texture and skintone.

    No....but IMO those older guys could "Pass" for Egypto-Sudanese. They dont specifically LOOK it but they could pass.

    Yeah ok that's true. They have a considerable chunk of ancestry from Ethiopia, Morocco, and Europe so it's quite hard to tell their exact features.

    but i personally think they look more Congolid, my uncle is brachycephalic and so is one of my aunts. So maybe thats one of the factors.

    I have a question for anyone who wants to comment in the future. If you were to classify me, what would you classify me as? knowing my ethnicity and percentages aswell? (54% euro, 42% african, 4% amerind)

    like for example, Congolid + Atlantid + minor sudanid (50/50 euro/african)

    or Sudanid + Med (60/40 euro/african)

    whatever. what would you guys say then?

    i think my african + euro combo makes my european APPEAR as some sort of false mediterranoid, which is probably why i look so ambigious. i do have quite strong african traits though if i say so myself.

    i've seen people on this post:



    and most of those mulattos look equally or less african than me FEATURE-WISE but they have wavy and or curly hair, which makes them appear more afro-influenced lol.

    my mom has straight hair too due to admixture (euro + ethiopid influences) but she's one of the more SSA people in my family (72-80%) and ppl also say she looks Mulatta or 65% african XD


    additional pictures of me with a tan, and most are taken on Aruba too:

    Spoiler: 


    ^ last year on Aruba, skintype 4-5 on fitzpatrick scale


    Spoiler: 


    ^ month ago or so, this is a more realistic representation of my skin color, maybe slightly bit lighter


    Spoiler: 


    Spoiler: 


    ^ last year the netherlands


    thanks in advance yall

    i'd be really curious to hear what african mix i look like most. Personally i think Congolid because i am mesocephalic, or meso-brachycephalic. im also ecto-mesomorph and roughly 1.73m in height or so

    anyone have a clue whether i look more "Sudanid + germanic" or rather congolid or bantuid? im not sure where my african influences are strongest from, but what i do know is that i look roughly 35-45% SSA in look IMO, roughly 50%> euro, and the rest going to amerind and or berber maybe

    ^ reason why i am asking is because alot of people either say i look anywhere inbetween 18-32% african, and roughly 10-20% amerindian, or ppl say i look mulatto.

    since i am mulatto, i should have both european and african features right? im just wondering where my european and african "Seem" to be from.

    i think i have pretty decent congolid/southeastern bantu influence, since Sudanid's are very dark, my mom and my uncle were the darkest of all siblings, then you have my 3 aunts who are all medium brown, one a lighter shade, one a medium shade, and one a darker/warmer shade, which is congolid influence, since congolids are lighter than sudanids.

    anyone have a clue? i am naturally light brown/golden toned. and my nose is a aquiline/roman shape.

    aint no one else wanna guess? xD i know i made a similar thread to this before but its rather more focused on my family aswell.

    i was just curious to see whether ppl thought i looked sudanid + germanic or something because lately i saw a post on "Mulatto phenotypes" and usually typical american mulattos look sudanid + atlantid and sudanid + hallstatt etc.
