Akan[edit]

Hello Mark - I would like to help you, but one of the links doesn't appear to mention the Akan or any of its various subgroups. The other link does include data on the Ewe and Fante Akan subgroups. However, it ultimately combines that material with data from other populations in the Niger-Congo language family [1], so it's not possible to make out from this what exactly is the data on the Akan alone. Soupforone (talk) 00:44, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank's for taking interest in helping me Soupforone. What I was aiming for, is to use the Fante data, who are an Akan subgroup, to be used to represent all of the Akan people subgroups data, since the Fante and all of the Akan people subgroups share the same migration pattern and history from the Sahel to their current locations. The Fante migrated to and from Bonoman as did all of the Akan subgroups. MarkMysoe (talk) 02:42, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Glad to help out if I can. The main issue at the moment is that the link above does not seem to give individual data on the Akan or any of its subgroups, including the Fante. I've searched for figures on the Akan alone and didn't find anything. If you know of other material that does, however, that would be a good starting point, and we can work from there.

Ancient Egyptian race controversy[edit]

Hi Soup41. Please see my post at Ancient Egyptian race controversy talk. Thanks Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 01:25, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Negroid[edit]

Sorry for giving you a hard time about Negroid. I wasn't keeping in mind that in the 20th century anthropologists had a completely different concept of the Negroid branches. Omo Obatalá (talk) 13:50, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Rosy pink Mediterraneans[edit]

Hi Soupforone. Some Mediterraneans are "Rosy pink"? Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 18:10, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Coon indicated that Mediterraneans can be pink to brown in tone. It seems that he was perhaps right given the swarthy, yet blue-eyed La Braña specimen [2]. Soupforone (talk) 01:24, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Made a slight change - see if it works foor you. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 11:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that is what Coon writes in his The Story of the Middle East. However, in his major treatise The Races of Europe, he indicates that it's from pink to reddish to light or dark brown tones (like the La Braña specimen). Soupforone (talk) 01:04, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

A question for an Edit (Mediterranean Race)[edit]

Is it according to include this passage (which was once included in that article) and is informative and sourced: >>> In 1901, The Nation magazine summed up the studies and origin theories of Sergi, Brinton and Keane as follows: "The Mediterranean family of races includes Iberians, Ligurians, Pelasgians, Khatti (Hethei, Chittim. or Hittite), and Libyans. It is to be understood that, probably in Quaternary times, the ancestors of all these peoples came from northern Africa."[1] According to the studies by the American anthropologist Madison Grant (added in his book The passing of the great Race) "The Berbers of north Africa to-day [1922] are racially identical with the Spaniards and south Italians while the ancient Egyptians and their modern descendants, the fellaheen, are merely well marked varieties of this Mediterranean race."[2] <<< ; If possible, it would be placed below the info of the Saharan origins after Note [15]; Agilulf2007 (talk) 00:54, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Hey there - magazine pieces and articles aren't really reliable sources for anthropology. It would be better to link directly to Sergi, Brinton, Keane and Madison's works. Soupforone (talk) 02:52, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
