Are Eritreans mixed? Eritreans are not mixed, they just have a different phenotype from what most people think an African is supposed to look like. One has to remember, there's more diversity within Africa than any part of the world. Moreover, being fair skinned does not necessarily mean you are mixed. Aside from Eritreans, another great example of this are the San People (Bushmen) of southern parts of Africa. They generally have fair skin and have a distinguishable phenotype that separates them from their neighbors.


Note: The following paragraph and pictures below are about mixed Eritreans. I must stress, Eritreans are not mixed, these are just a few photos of Eritreans in the diaspora (US, UK, Canada, and Europe) who have mixed.

Ever wondered what a kind of a mix an Eritrean and say a Japanese would make? If you did, you've come to the right spot. We have a few collection of photos below showcasing mixed Eritreans. Judging from these pictures, its easy to conclude that Eritreans who mix with other groups of people tend to adopt the features of the people they mix with more than their Eritrean side. It seems that the Eritrean genes are very recessive.

  11. hey be nice to our neighbors there are plenty of half Eritrean half Ethiopian just as beautiful and patriotic Eritreans. there is a famouse half ethiopian/eritrean singer that fought for Eritrea and still is loyal to our Eri. Remember as Eritreans our fight is not with ordinary Ethiopians but against those donkeys controling the country and distroying ordinary Ethio lives and against those old abyssinian fudamentalist and racist jackasses that can't stop dreaming about Assab or Eritrean Red-sea.

    Ethipian people appreciate and genuinely wish to live in peace with Eri people it's the damn Ethiopian government we need to fight.

    cheers! usher in the new Era of Eri/Ethio people neighborly existance.

  15. I think the point is to show that Eritrean genes are very recessive. Still, I find it fascinating but will nevertheless keep it Eritran!

  17. I am half Eritrean and half Italian residing in Milano. I speak fluant Tigrinya as my dad is Eritrean and my mother is Italian. I never been to Eritrea but i hope to go there one day. A lot of Eritreans here in Milano get very surprised when i speak to them in Tigrinya because most of them think i am 100% white (italian) as my eyes are green and my skin is white and i have soft brown hair. Although i don't look like Eritrean, but i am proud of my heritage.

  20. I've seen the same thing when an ethiopian lady had children with a swedish man, their son looked like a lightskinned arab and he had beautiful blue eyes. I also had an eritrean kid in my school and I didnt know he was eritrean until I saw his name in the yearbook. I was totally chocked because his name was meron tekeste and he looked completely white. When I asked him he said he was half eritrean.

  21. To the person who said it was racist that there is no photos of half eritreans and half something black african, maybe its because eritreans don't mix with other africans that much..I wonder if you would still be screaming racist if it was the other way around...
    Think about it?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. WOW, As beutiful as Eritrea!!!
    Welcome to Eritrea & the Eritrean family.
    For those who are making a political issue out of these pictures, Eritreans being Africans, we ALREADY know what to expect & look like being African.
    Therefore, African American, Eritrean-Nigerian, Eritrean-Sudanese, Eritrean-Conglese, Eritrean-Ethiopian, Eritrean-Somali does NOT look any different than being Eritrean.
    After all, when you are talking about "MIXED-RACE", you are talkig more than just being AFRICAN.
    I hope, this helps.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Are you actually saying that most eritreans do not look any different from most congolese people?! or most nigerian people?! If you walked into a room filled with congolese people are you actually telling me that you would not know that they are not eritreans unless they told you so.. because you cant tell the difference?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mr. Eritrean,,, Thanks for making my point clear.
    I refered to Eritreans as being Africans, just like ALL other Africans.
    Again I said,,,,
    "Therefore, African American, Eritrean-Nigerian, Eritrean-Sudanese, Eritrean-Conglese, Eritrean-Ethiopian, Eritrean-Somali does NOT look any different than being Eritrean".

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think you are misunderstanding me..Yes eritreans are africans, and yes there are eritreans that could pass for looking "typically nigerian" or "typically somali" BUT most eritreans do not look like most nigerians,congolese,somali people or any other people..so my point is that there is a pretty obvious difference when it comes to looks between eritreans and most other african people. So therefor I dont understand what you mean when you say that mixed eritreans of other african heritage "does not look any different than than being eritrean". My guess is that they will NOT look like your typical eritrean because there is a certain look to eritreans just like every other people on earth has their own special look. So if you mix eritreans with something else..there is a big chance that they will infact look different than most eritreans.

  26. This just prove that many Horners(Eritreans,Ethiopians & Somalis)are Caucasians.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thats not true, we are not caucasians, but still there is a obvious difference between "horners" and the majority of africa in terms of both looks and culture.

    ReplyDelete
  28. what is the point of this page....i come to this site looking for eritrean history not for mixed people...whats so special about them? are they not also human. who cares if our genes are recessive, isnt that obvious from the amount of races we've already been mixed with.

    and to the person who said theres not much eritrean and other african mix, there is plenty i know many just in london this page only has caucasian and eritrean mix because the media has changed peoples perpective of what is beuatiful...they make you think caucasian is the only beauty

    ReplyDelete
  29. Of course I know that there are eritreans who mix with other africans as well, although I've only known one ethiopian to actually have children with another african, but I've seen plenty of "habesh" ladies have children with caucasians. I was just annoyed by the fact that someone was screaming racist because of the lack of eritrean/other african mixes. But to be honest with you, I do think eritreans mix alot more with caucasians then they do with black africans. I've seen plenty of us show up with white partners at habesh parties and stuff but almost never the the other way around. And yes, I'm sure media has alot to do with it..wich is probably why people like to bring up ethiopians and eritreans as examples of "african beauty" whenever black beauty is the topic, and its probably simply because our women are more caucasian looking.

  30. Lol....My aunt looks straight up and down Arab but she's 100% Somali. There are many different types of "black". We shouldn't limit our definitions of black to narrow Western views.

    Btw...my lil girl is a Eritrean/Somali mix. And ya'll genes took over :)...My lil Eritrean beauty.

  39. Almost none of these photos look like Eritreans to me. I have mixed Eri's in my family and its pretty much the same thing with them. Interesting because the Habesha features are..unique and tend to stand out in a crowd lol.

  40. i seen this eritrean filipino mix, and i seen a italian and eritrean mix, and a black and eritrean mix, and last but not least i seen this eritrean and indian mix she was bad, somethin bout her, but all look 100 percent eritrean to me, i wouldent want to mix a child for one reason and one reason only the not completed feeling they get being more then one race, its a stigma that comes with being mixed, im not mixed, so i wouldent know, but iv read that in a book, and seen it on tv, idk, but we are all human at the end, so i dont discriminate, especially one thats half eritrean, because they would know alot, about the culture, and i think thats more then enough, as far as acceptance goes on my behalf.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Very cool to see the variety.
    It's not so surprising, actually. Look at the faces of many habeshas, especially the noses, chins, and big forheads —even unmixed, if they had white skin and straight hair, they'd look quite european because of their bone structure. So it seems "recessive" because habesha features mix harmoniously with other races.

    The reason isn't that they have "recessive" genes, but that they have genes of other populations (more European than Asian.) Why? Because they come from the place in Africa where modern man sprung from before he left Africa!

    Also, it's so close to Yemen, and Axum had so much trade with the outside world, there was probably some mixing with middle easterners many years ago.
    Did you know Axum even conquered and occupied part of southern arabia for a while? We might all have some arab distant grandmothers, hehe.

  42. Hey all! I'm one of these people.

    Very proud to be Eritrean. We have a great family that has kept us all connected with our heritage. Have been "home" to Eritrea many times. Never really felt out of place, aside from very little kids thinking we were Italian. As most people know, in the end it's not how you look, it's who you are.

    For us, it isn't really about being HALF Eritrean/HALF Other, More like being ALL of BOTH — 200%
    May seem like impossible math, but it's like two for the price of one. I wouldn't give it up for ANYTHING.

  43. omgosh i really like these photo's espically the eritrean- japanese. he is so adoreable :)))

  44. There's this Eritrean lady, she lives a street away from me. A year ago i asked her, why is it that her family members have light skin, are you guys mixed with whites like way way back when? Her answer..."no, Eritrea was never colonised, we just have light skin".
    I think most mixed people are absolutely beautiful looking! So why would she lie??

    ReplyDelete
  45. well i have my own kids their father is white but they dont look like me often i am mistaken for a babysitter it annoys me. My kids are fanatic Eritreans more than me and i like it. Well God is great and we are all children of God. It is interesting to see the looks

    ReplyDelete
  46. I wouldn't want my kids to look like this. How weird would it be to walk around with a white baby?

    Keep it 100% Eritrean

    ReplyDelete
  47. oviously this guy has no evidence that there eritrean or from somewhere else because most eritrean and horn of africans tend to mix with the people from there country

    ReplyDelete
  48. I wouldn't say the Eritrean gene is recessive, simply because I know Eritrean are extremely proud and have strong DNA - because we feed our DNA with our eternal love for the protection of our country and ourselves. Recessive is more like a "weak" gene. And Eritreans are everything but weak, history have shown that millions of times! But it's rather we have a DNA that mix well with most races. For some reason there are different flavours to our DNA. We are hetrogenic, and I love that about us! To all mix Eritreans, Eritreans are family oriented people - so we love you very much as ERitreans. You guys don't even need to hear this from me!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Some Eritrean look even almost like sothern European and some look like arab without being mixed. And some people look like any other black african. And then you have all the people in between. Man, it's great! ERi shikor is home for everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The so called "recessive" gene etc is... because most Eritreans specially the "highlanders" belong to "Semitic" group of people (middle eastern ancestry), that is over 5000+ years old gene pool. The gene seems to be "recessive" or adoptive because it has links with the other races that surround the Red Sea and the Mediterranean as well. The point is that the ancestors of modern day Eritrea migrated from what's now Yemen thousands of years ago, and the people from Yemen migrated from the the Mediterranean region (middle east), as many civilizations and group of people have done so for centuries. So enough with my boring history lesson, the fact is that the Eritrea gene is "recessive" because it feels at home and adopts or blends well specially with those middle-east / euro regions... Anyways. .. the Japanese one was new... but it's nice to know that we got "brothers" in the Pacific :) peace & love to all our brothers and sisters around the world, have a big heart.

  52. I'm the gentleman in the Eritrean / Dutch picture. I have NEVER been made to feel outside of the Habasha community. and that has all been awesome feeling to be accepted. I have been to Eritrea just after the war ended and it was a blessing to be there with my father. Thank you for doing this. A lot of times I feel like I'm the only one out there!

  53. mixed Eritreans look this way because Eritreans are part of the Caucasoid group. there are 3 groups in the world: Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid. Indians, Middle Easterns, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, and Europe are part of the Caucasiod group. The orientals of east Asia are part of the mongoloid group. And western and southern and eastern(not the Horn of Africa) africa are part of the Negroid group.

  55. Why do we have these pictures up?? We should be discouraging Eritreans from mixing with others. Most of the folks here in America marry with other races. Stop glorifying this stuff. You don't see white folks, or Asians gloating about how their people look mixed with other races. Eritreans are so pathetic sometimes

  57. This is the world of the future. We are all going to be a very cool mix in 150 to 200 years from now and it will be difficult to tell who comes from where. It's going to be the coolest world to live in. Nobody is going to discriminate anybody else for ethnic or national origin because we'll all be mixed to an extreme. This is going to make us human more beautiful than ever and smarter and more cultured than ever. This is not utopia, but where the Human species is going. Unfortunately it's still 150 or 200 years away. That future it's going to be a huge boost to the evolution of the human species.

  63. Amen!! It's so refreshing to hear amazing things from some Eritrean people. I hate being all stuck up about being a "poor race" That's the last thing we are and yet we discriminate pretty much against every other race. Happy with my Iranian boyfriend for two years now and couldn't have been trilled to share my culture and learn his. Maybe if we opened up a little, and would spend less time gossiping and wasting time on some none-sense, we could learn something new and be less arrogant =)

  65. It has nothing to do with media when it comes to what ERitrean considers is beauty. You are wrong. Eventhough Eritreans generally are not racist people, we are racist when it comes to intermarriage. I know interracial relationship that went under due to Eri-families not accepting, and I also know Eri-family accept easier an European to a black african. That is us needing to face are shadow sides. Aside from looks, there is also bigger cultural difference between black africans and the average europeans as most europeans are more conservative just like the eritrean cultural. Actually our culture is much more conservative. Eritrean were first jews that converted to christianity and later some to islam, and Europe has this cultural influence in it. So yes, ERitreans prefer whites to blacks, but they'd rather keep it 100 Eritrean.

    ReplyDelete
  66. you are right that Eritrean belong to "semtic" group of people and that we have bloodline to the middle-east and mediterranean sea, and that is 5000 years gene pool. However, our ancestors are not yemeni! Some may have yemeni blood, but not generally according to archeology that is.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I don't agree with Ibrahim that Eritreans glorify mixing, I actually feel it is the opposite! I know many Eritrean women who pass their time waiting for Eritrean men - and chosing between them saying no to other races, and in the end they end up alone and childless. Do you know how many older Eritrean women abroad in Italy, in Arabia and all over that have no family of their own living alone?!!! We could have been maybe 500.000 people more, if these women had families. I often think about that. I have also experienced ERitrean men being really hard on havin ERitrean women, dumping their white lovers when time comes. So I don't agree. Actually Eritreans are racist when it comes to marriage. We don't want to marry Ethio, we don't want to marry whites and specially not black Africans. But if we have to - it is somehow a bit easier to accept an Ethio and a white.. So I don't agree at all. At the same time these kids are also ERitrean, and we should gather them and make them pride of being Eritreans. We are not that many anyway. And I also like the "recessive-talk"., in that way madote is trying to create an steady fast Eritrean identity without saying mixed - in that way - they make it open. The reality however is that Eritreans are mixed throught the centuries and millenia with middle-eastern and alo mediterranean people. But we can't say we are mixed at this point. We are us, we have all these colors in us - and it created a unique signature that is beautiful. So yes, we have very adaptable gene, but we are not mixed - because we are one people and one identity that is saturated in colorful flavors throughout the millenia.

  68. I also know so many asians, idians and africans that love mixing with whites. They thing they go up in value by doing so, luckily Eritreans are not like that. Japanese people are also very firm, but many many Asians and Africans are not. Eritreans are very hard people. But I don't encourage intermix with this message, and I don't discourage it. But I LOVE THAT WE ARE SO HARD AND SO PROUD OF OURSELVES. MAN, I LOVE BEING ERITREAN!!!!

  69. You do realise that white people arent just one type of white right? Every race nowadays is extremely mixed. The white race in itself has an amazing amount of variety. Also, why do you think it would be better for us all to be one color? There will still equally easy ways ro discriminate. A completely homogenous world would be absolutely dumb and degenerstive instead of progressive.because of this, this will technically never happen. You can actually rather expect that the future will bring more wide spread use of selective breeding to for example create the perfect racial mix for an athlete or the perfect mix for an artistic mind. All these things can go back to race. I mean, its proof enough to just look at how much the extremely successful "black" athletes are mixed. They are most of the time not one type of run off the mill african race but a lot of african and south american and sometimes european nut mostly also arabic mixtures. I hope you get my point.

  70. Ibrahim I am an African American. The forced mixture in my family was not of my 3rd and 4th great grandmothers' approval. It was a result of slavery. I do not blame you one bit. We have the same problem here, we African Americans get googly eyed over mixing with others and thinking that we'll be accepted by them. And the sad part is we don't realize that just because a being from another race beds us, we believe they like or even love us. Bob Marley's white father laid with his black mother but could not stomach blacks in general. President Obama's white grand mother spoke very ill of black men right in front of him when he was little (and she was raising him at the time)!! Strom Thurman fought for segregation but still committed a hypocritical action by laying with his black teenaged maid siring a daughter with her. Black people are indeed are psychologically blind when it comes to thinking they are accepted by every one. Just because outsiders have sex with you DOES NOT mean they like or love you. This is PROOF that we blacks don't accept ourselves or appreciate our own culture. Ibrahim stick to your guns about this issue and let no one shame you because you honor your people, culture and traditions. Stand steadfast.

  71. My picture is up here :)
    Proud (of course!) of my Eritrean blood, and was raised in a family that put in a lot of work for independence. I've been there 3 or 4 times, first time right after liberation, it was pure magic being there back then. Really miss Asmara and what it was like 4 wheeling out to Nakfa and Afabet.

    Always fun to drop some Tigrinya on a random fellow habesha and see them shocked to hear it come out of my mouth.
    Though next thing that happens is we usually to find out we're distantly related, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Pardon me, but that's a problem you have. That's not a problem we have. You don't know the content and type of our culture so actually you are in no away able to predict our ways. It's heavily conservative culture, a semtic one. Extremely proud people, and nation, even too proud for big money super power America and the west, The only thing mr. Ibrahim is saying is that eritrean girls sadly easily are intermarrying blacks in America. It would have been as sad with other races as black. And btw Eitrean do not consider themselves black whatever system you have in America. We consider ourselves Eritreans - you can ask our forefathers a 1000 years back - and they will give you the same answer I am giving you. The reason for the intermarriage Ibrahim is talking about is that is because their parents haven't been there for them to boost and strengthen their identity. Probably because America is all work, and Eritrea is too stubborn to let the west have it its way - so we rely on Eritrean individuals in America or other countries and also thanks to the support of the arabs - we survive and keep our nation going. And it would be one of the most developed nations again. So that engagement of the Eritrean people around the world to protect their country, makes their kids suffering in that they easily marry with other races than preferrable. Eventhough they love ERitrea at heart most of the kids, they are deprived of major culture knowledge as the Indians, Chinese and arabs would provide their kids in Amrica. Because their countries our not in such a turmoil for over 60 years and alone in this world - they only have this much energy per day.

  75. Why can't we be Eritrean beauties?.....Why do we have to carry the loads of others???... I was in Geneve ones I was 12, and there was this jewish business man who was working his way with my mom. And he said, Eritreans and Ethiopians are the pearl of Africa. And I could have cutt his head for saying that! Why do we need to be the pearl of Africa??? Why can't we be the pearl of the world or just Eritrea? He saw my eyes, and became scared by my gaze. We know who we are and we certainly do not need to prove our beauty and the enlargement of it by marrying other races.

    And why arn't there Philiponos or other races screaming out racist whenever they don't have it their way? I am not saying that Eritreans do unless the same Eritreans have kids whos spend too much time listening to hip hop. All Eritreans know we are our own race. You never hear an Arab saying he is Asian, or an Indian or chinese saying he is arab or middle-eastern. That would be weird wouldn't it. The same goes with us. They are their own respetive races, no one bothered them. So why bother us because our country is in turmoil????? I was reading an article yesterday in Scandinavia and there was this football player who had great carrier in England, he was black. He wrote a book, and said his carrier would have been even better if he weren't black. I just shook my head. And then I read some of the comments to that article, and there this guy who wrote; what if you were yellow????... I just had to laugh out loud!!!I That was so funny!!!! They can never make it in terms of respect and dignity unless they start within setting boundries for themselves etc. Ariticles like that makes them seem weak, and peope bite on that like I am doing right here:)

  76. Well, there normally is a reason why we normally don't match with black africans. Do I have to feed you with baby spoons to make my point. If you are Eritrean you know what I mean. I don't need to explain more.

  77. None of our forefathers and old and die hard ancestors at least 1000 years back would say we are mixed. We are our own race. At the same time Mr. Ibraham it's very hard to imagine ERitrea in its position that part in red sea, that connects our part north east africa with middle east, and further with mediterranean sea and with the indian Ocean as far as India Sri Lanka and China, My GOsh they even did trade with France 5000 years ago taking their ships to the shores of France. So it would be so non logic of we don't have other races blood within our own Eritrean race. And also impossible for these other races not to have ERitrean blood within their own race. It's pure logic. That being said the amount of intermix etc. is up to the heavens, and probably they were very much conservative back then too. I think ERirea is a bit less conservative today due to the hardship with wars etc. When I heard there were whores in the streets of Asmara when I was younger I was so chocked. We don't do that! It's always humiliatng to be in need, we could even have been more whorey with the situation in ER - but we are not. Just a little bit more loos than before. And in time I hope it would balance out. ER is moving forward and shining out, and I hope they fix Asamara to its former glory, it looks like shit right now. It was hurtful to see it in such condition.

  78. "There are many races so proud of their culture and protective of it they don't even dare giving it up so easily. Arabs, Indians, white Europeans are an example and its because they have a great history, civilization, and culture. Habesha people want to glorify this stuff as if it has only good effects and 0 negative effects". THIS IS JUST SO WRONG!!! DON'T WE ERITREANS HAVE SOME OF THE RICHEST, EARLIEST, LONGEST AND DOMINATING HISTORIES IN THE WORLD?!!!!! HOW MANY COUNTRIES ARE LIKE ROME AND GREECE AND EGYPT CHINA AND INDIA? NONE: ERITREA HAS IT ALL. IT IS PRE-EGYPT, WITIN EGYPT, WITH ROME, WITH GREECE, WITH TURKEY, AND LATER ISLAM. Stop the bullshitting!!! A very few even under handful countries can show you the range of histry that spans for millenia. And that's why we have flown out from ER to Europe, to the East and middle-east, and to some other parts of Africa as people have flown in from other parts of the world. Our forefathers were seafering shrewed jewish busness men, probably one of the earliest jews.

  79. And vice versa. There are many yemenis with Eritrean blood, also Saudis I would think. Axum started in ER, spread to Tigray to yemen up to medina, down to Amhara or even further down up to north sudan and even south egypt. The basically had control over almost the whole of the red sea. But they never occypied Jordan.and Isreal.That being said, the ERitrean history is much older than Axum. It seems it was under the control of Egypt and Eritrea for the most part prior for millenias. But jordan and yemen were working in, specially it in their own right - even Nubia. But it seems it was mostly the trade beween Egypt and Eritrea that was most significant for 1300 years in the red sea.

  80. hahahaha:), We never heard an Indian, chinese, shri lankan or even japanese complaying for Yemenis not identifying themselves with the themselves!! WE never heard the Asians complaining for the arabs keeping themselves for being middle-easterneres. Because there is obvious cultural, linguistic and lookwise difference, although some Indians can look arab!

  81. Is stupid!:) I so agree with you! We have recessive gene because we are by the sea, no other reason. But neverthe less it was an interesting discussion with some being concerned about ER mixing with other races, and discusssing ER rich cultural heritage. Sometimes we need to speak about our cultural differently than the part of independence and struggle. Our pride and nice culture.

  83. Because we are not mixed. We are our race. Just like Indians and Sri Lankans are their own race.

  84. You right, but it is also frighting how many europeans could go for Eritrean in looks and body structure if it hadn't been for color, hair color and hair texture.

  85. you have so much to be proud of!!!! Most importantly, we are family oriented, loud voices, jokes, warm, food, harsh mothers but they do it for love, and their harsness works for our lives later on - keeps us educated and away from trouble. It is so fun. You don't even need to hear from me. I just want to sing it out. I miss ER and Asmara the way it was. Now it looks old and tired, and almost everyone is gone to college, sawa or fuori, it made me sad - broke my heart - because I had so much fun there. And in time, it'll florish again, back to dolce fun vita!

  86. You could also ask why I am here writing this much?! Because Eritrean feel like haunting animals because our position in the red sea. No one wants to leaves us alone, at the same time it is conservative culture. The reason I am hanging around here is because I want to pretect my identity. I even had to ciao a fresh boyriend who at starting point visited Ethiopia in order to know my culture. He figured Ethiopia was bigger country important for cashing in money at the same time, but it is not size or being nabours that count nor his effort to know my culture! I felt the choice he made by leaving to Ethiopia was like him forcing me to chose between respecting my ancestors (my respect for mysellf and identity) and spitting in my forefathers faces and in their blood and sweat for the endless wars with the greedy, stupid, and jealous southern nabour (basically being a whore by disgarding my identity). We are different creed with the northern ethiopian. By chosing my ex european boyfriend (dating state), I would be a whore to myself. That was something I could never do. And I never wanted to teach him anything since that move by going to Ethiopia was already an arrogant one and selfish one. So i told him to fuck off, eventhough he read many books about Ethiopia before leaving. And later tried to win be back by at least 50 times! Well, I guess he could marry Ethiopia instead!

  88. Archaeological and scientific determinations of some study outcomes are not, in and of themselves, absolute truths. They are based on studies and findings of currently available quantity/quality of evidences such as bone fragments, artifacts (pottery, tools, Jewellery, coins, weapons, building materials, clothing), documented data, genome types and (currently working) ways and methods of scientific study. Scientists will reach at their conclusions by discovering, observing, measuring, experimenting and validating what they see in their physical, biological, psychological and social worlds. As they unearth more evidences and discover newer ways of studying the human genes/genome and phenotypes, all could change and they could equally end up claiming that there is a genetic link, after all, between Eritreans and Yemenis - it's all up in the air.


    Besides, it still does beg the question - why do a few of the Eritrean highland villages carry the same names as that of the ancient Yemeni towns? - e.g. Senafe-->Sena, Saharti-->Sahar, Mereb-->Marib, come to mind. My guess is that there has been migrations both sides of the Red Sea - with most of the human flows occurring from South Arabia or Yemen to Eritrea. But it doesn't end on physical characteristic appearances of our people alone. The biggest glaring evidence is, of course, on the linguistic overlaps you see between Tigrigna/Tigre/Amharic and Arabic . Both Tigrigna and Arabic have the same pronouns and nearly all the basic Tigrigna/Amharic/Tigre words also exist in Arabic. As a person who understand Arabic, I could list the following words off the top of my head:- nouns: selam, bahri, hilmi,amet, abo, mot, id, may, qelbi; verbs: kone, asere, qetele, sekere, qome; pesonal pronouns: anta, anti, antum, antn, etc etc. Add to these the grammatical, structural,, morphological, phonological, syntactic and verbal patterns that exist between the languages and you will see that the commonality between the two groups is far more deeper than you are willing to admit. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that It takes a lot of prolonged social interactions, trades, intermarriages, exchanges, and all, between groups for their languages to evolve in such a far-reaching way.


    On a side note (EriGirl), while it's okay to be proud of your new identity as an Eritrean and push on with all your might towards working and forging a common destiny as one people, I warn you and many other Eritreans against inadvertently falling into the trap of narrow exclusivistic nationalism that borders on xenophobia. You can be patriotic and altruistic about your home country and it's natural and expected to do so but what we need to have as Eritreans is educated nationalism that is based on a broader outlook of the world and our peaceful co-existence with all our neighbors.

  89. Yeah, there's a reason, and it has nothing to do with conservatism. Some of the most conservative peoples on this planet are black Africans, especially West Africans. So go tell someone else this bull crap.

  93. Yemen people didn'tmigrate from the middle east. Yemeni people mogirated out of africa like all semitic speakers did. Semitic languages are afro-asiatic, african languages spoken in asia. The original semitic africans left around 10,000 years ago from the ethiopian highlands and moving north and then into asia.


    The people of the mediterreanean today were not even there 5000 years ago never mind 2000 years ago. With the majority of them being recent slavic and germanic immigrants from central asia.


    Eritreans may have some admisture

  94. Really sorry to inform you but Ethiopians and Eritreans are what you call old world mix it means that their ancestors were mixed with the Arab people and of surrounding nation and they began mixing in with themselves creating the look the Ethiopian and Eritrean and other non-African features. You'll notice that parts of Africa that is close to Arab or non-African peoples like northern Sudan people look like Arabs because of the Egyptian who are now Arabs and Somali people have quite bit of Arab in them as well. There are not many types of black, but there are many types of Africans. The above statement is scientifically proven they did a lot of ethnic ancestral tracing and stuff there was a documentary on it so please be informed pure African feature the are not old world mix are like west African not including the Fulani people who are mixed African people that are spread throughout African.

  96. From the picture it seems that eritrean phenotype is recessive or very recessive alleles. Probably due to L3..haplotype that have with gives rise to m and n haplotype.

  98. Well how to break this to you. East Africans share the closest genetic diversity delves with the Sans. The oldest population in the world who happen to black. They are thought to have originate in ease Africa and migrate south. Thus east africans ( including eritrean ) are closely related to the Sans. So cut the bs about non being black...you have more black blood in you than the even west africans. We are black people and our nationality is Eritrean, ethiopians, etc.

  99. I have Eritrean and east Indian by way of the caribbean nation of Guyana.. I tell people all the time not all Africans look alike and we (Eritreans) are not all mixed ...curly wavy hair& straight noses are not White man features ..rather you can find this in many cultures whose ancestors dwelled in higher ground..plateaus.. mountains.. due to climate and diet....

    Really? have you heard of Brazil and the Dominican Republic? They are already very mixed and so is the USA and many countries in Latin America. The mixture you are talking about has already taken place a long time ago in the region called the Middle East. How much more mixed do we have to be to get along. Hog wash! We will be fighting about something all the time. Ever heard of Religion? We have fought about it from the start of time. Keep dreaming!
