if you actually check the map of the world you’ll see that Solomon Islands are actually closer to Russia than they are to Africa.

The Africans migrated their its a historical fact and they are not mixed . Do your research they did a genetic test on them. Yes there are millions of Africans living outside of Africa many migrated thousands of years ago. All people have to do is use google. I get tired of explaining simple things lol

Africans migrating to Europe is also a historical fact. They did a lot of genetic testing to prove that.
What you fail to realise is that Melanesians genetically aren’t much different from surounding Maoris, Papuans and Aboriginal Australians, but are vastly different from any African population.
Just because they have dark skin doesn’t make them African (and they’re not, they’re Pacific Islanders).

He’s ugly and looks like a troll. Has a real punchable face. Would love to sock him with a left hook.

his father might have also had some mixture from the 19th century, generally when someone has blue eyes, both parents carry the gene.
