    Meant to say the Arabs mixed with black subsaharan Africans.

    They have black Arabs. In the middle east they mixed (some) with black subsaharan Arabs and they called the children Arabs for centuries. It was the reverse of the one drop rule in America. Any black mixed Arab would still be called “Arab”. Like you can see alot of black looking Saudis .
