    We all come from Africa. In Africa among blacks Africans there are tons of unique looks, kinky, straight, curly, wavy hair, light and dark skin without admixture. Many Africans looks “mixed” or biracial when they are not not. They say many African Americans are 20% white but many are actually not. Oprah Winfrey took a dna test and she has zero no white dna she tested 95% African subsaharan and 5% Chinese/Indian Asian. if you goolge pics of black Africans there are all types of looks. The 20% in some African Americans did not change teir look that much. This Nigerian Igbo woman is 100% West African.
