My paternal line!! Haplogroup T!!!
In human population genetics, mitochondrial (mtDNA) haplogroups define the major lineages of direct maternal (female) lines back to a shared common ancestor in Africa.
Its highest frequencies are in two Semitic speaking peoples: the Amhara and the Tigrai

Elite endurance runners!!!
Possible patterns between Y-chromosome and elite endurance runners were studied in an attempt to find a genetic explanation to the Ethiopian endurance running success. Given the superiority of East African athletes in international distance running over the past four decades, it has been speculated that they are genetically advantaged. Elite marathon runners from Ethiopia were analysed for K*(xP) which according to the previously published Ethiopian studies is attributable to the haplogroup T[178] and specifically to the T1a1a* (old T1a*) subclade, according to further studies.[1] T1a1a* was found to be proportionately more frequent in the elite marathon runners sample than in the control samples than any other haplogroup, therefore this y-chromosome could play a significant role in determining Ethiopian endurance running success. Haplogroup T1a1a* was found in 14% of the elite marathon runners sample of whom 43% of this sample are from Arsi province. In addition, haplogroup T1a1a* was found in only 4% of the Ethiopian control sample and only 1% of the Arsi province control sample. T1a1a* is positively associated with aspects of endurance running, whereas E1b1b1 (old E3b1) is negatively associated.
Haplogroup T is common in northern Somalia and in the Somalis of Ethiopia. It is found in frequency of greater than 10 percent in populations of Kenya Tanzania and Cameroon. It is notable for being widespread in Tanzania where it is more common than Kenya . It has also been detected in the limba populations of Zimbabwe Malawi and South Africa. The distribution of this haplogroup has been suggested to be associated with mtdna haplogroup M1 as the two tend to be common in the same regions.

Whenever people point to Mary Shelley and say “a woman invented sci-fi you know” I just think “well, I mean, technically a woman invented the whole concept of authoring books as far as we can tell but hey who’s keeping track”

Festival of the Good Death Celebrated in Cachoeira, Brazil

The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.

your post on african diversity thru the kemets is ignorant. Even in Africa, the light skinned races hold dominance over African Blacks. Therefore, trying to celebrate this diversity like theres one big happy African race is stupid and really upsetting because this mentality perpetuates an inaccurate image of Africa. North Africans/ Arabs began black slave trade and still continue to opress blacks today. SO fuck out of here with that shit. Real Africans are sub saharan Africans. Black and Proud.

Actually humans don’t come in black!http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_skin_color
Afrakans never looked at each other as one color or even called each other a color! Sub Saharan lol, Afraka is Afraka! Only a European would divide up afraka that way! Zulu,Khoi are in sub Saharan afraka! There not black. My dad was Amhara there not black! My mother is Igbo she is not black. Afrakans are not one anything,culture language or color! Only a Negropean would divide afrakans into light and dark skin! Arabs moved into north Afraka in the 9th century! Those are Asians! O who are the Amazigh (singular) the ethnicity indigenous to North Africa west of the Nile Valley. http://phoenicia.org/berber.html
Have you taken human anthropology! There is more genetic diversity among the Afrakans on the continent the entire world out together!http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/30/AR2009043002485.html Only a person who has never lived on the contient would say something ignorant like that! Only a person with a slave name!!!
