    We are Neanderthals, and by we I mean Europeans, something like 20% of Euro-DNA is Neanderthal. They didn't die out so much as they interbred so much with European HomoSapiens that they ceased to be a distinct population.

    Just sharing this educational video by Masaman.

    PS. It's closer to 2%.

    Yeah man, I find it hilarious how once people found out that Europeans are nearly a quarter Neanderthal all of a sudden "Neanderthals weren't stupid they were smart! In fact maybe they were the smart ones!"

    White people traits are basically all from Neanderthal DNA

    Also the "Only the women" mythos exists because people aren't willing to admit that some of the largest Y dna haplogroups are neanderthal

    The neanderthal estimate for Horn Africans is a bit off tbh.I have seen as high as 1.6% for ethnic Somalis and I'm pretty sure there are Habeshas who are close to 2% too

    I am E-L29, U5a2a. My most recent European ancestors are from Denmark, Switzerland and the British Isles. My 23andme puts me at less than 4% but also less than 76% of 23andme customers, which would seem to indicate a higher number for Europeans in general.. 23andme doesn't claim to catch all of the Neanderthal variants or the precise portion of the genome that is Neanderthal.


    "You have 256 Neanderthal variants.
    Grant 's
    Neanderthal variants

    256

    This is less than
    76% of 23andMe Customers

    You have fewer Neanderthal variants than 76% of 23andMe customers.
    However, your Neanderthal ancestry accounts for less than 4% of your overall DNA.

    How to interpret this result
    • This report tells you whether you have certain genetic variants of Neanderthal origin out of the 2872 Neanderthal variants we test.
    • It also tells you whether you have any Neanderthal variants that are associated with traits in 23andMe customers.
    • It can't tell you the precise portion of your genome that comes from Neanderthals or about genetic variants of Neanderthal origin not tested by 23andMe."

    Afro-centrists often boast about being 100% Homo Sapien when arguing with Euro-centrists, but these times it's been discovered that West Affs and Bantus are 8% Homo Heidelbergensis :susp: only 92% modern Human :deadpeter:

    how? Neandertalls died out like 40k to 35k years ago? these guys lived in Europe too, how did traces of their dna make it to us?

    I can understand cadcads and banaadirs but geeljires?

    @Apollo explain sxb?

    cadcads have recent genetic input from arabs and portuguesse
    geeljires are descendants (in part) by ancient back to africa migration from the middle east,
    No other explanation since no neanderthals fossils/bones in Africa and bantus/west africans have 0% neanderthal dna.
    Accept it, we are part banu hashim:mjpls:

    We are descendants of ancient north east africans,

    basically
    1. we stayed in africa,
    2. other humans left africa and settled the middle east,
    3. they evolved and picked up neanderthal DNA from eurasia
    4. they migrated back to the horn/north east
    5. they mixed with ancient north east africans (our ancestors)
    6. ancient north east africans settled south east in modern day somalia
    7. we adapt to hot climate
    8. we become dhuxul for the most part
    9. we accept islam
    10. and somali history starts from there.
