    Have you ever seen the "black people" native to Asia and Oceania?

    Examples:

    Andaman Islands, India


    Melanesian


    Aboriginal Australians


    Aeta. Philippines.

    (Invalid img)
    Semang. Malaysia.

    I don't know why, but I seem to be fascinated by them. The interesting part is that they are less African than your average white person. Being someone who studies biology, it's not really surprising: Skin colour has nothing to do with race. It is simply an adaptation to climate.

    What do you think of this?

          I'm fascinated by the history and culture of the Maori people of New Zealand.
          NZ is part of Oceania so they're in the neighborhood.

                      The Maori are also an interesting example. However, they're more closely related to the Chinese.

                        But there are some who seem to be offended by this thread.

                          I don't see how this could be seen as offensive. I have seen people fascinated with certain groups of people and it doesn't seem to offend them (unless it goes overboard like people who think Japan = Anime).

                            I never even heard of Oceania until I saw it on the boot screen in MAME of Street Fighter II.

                            On another note the Black people in the rest of the world are nothing like African Americans.

                              How's that?

                                  I don't see anything wrong with discussing about other races on here. Most of my friends are of Asian descent and although not recently, I have mentioned them in at least a couple of my posts on here.

                                    I don't think that there is anything wrong with this topic either.
