Spain and Portugal are the most genetically African part of Europe

    Southern Europeans get a significant portion of their genetic ancestry from North Africa, new research suggests.



    The findings are perhaps not surprising, given that the Romans occupied North Africa and set up extensive trade routes in the region, and the Moors, a North African people, ruled a medieval territory called El-Andalus on the Iberian Peninsula.

    But the findings, published today (June 3) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggest the impact of these connections went beyond culture and architecture, and may explain why Southern Europeans have more genetic diversity than their northern counterparts.

    "The higher level of genetic variation in Southern Europeans reflects gene flow from North Africa during historical times. We're talking about the last 2,000 years, really from the Middle Ages during which there was occupation in Spain," said study co-author Carlos Bustamante, a geneticist at Stanford University.

    Past studies had shown that Southern Europeans such as Spaniards, Greeks and Italians had more genetic variability than people from Northern Europe; other studies showed they had a small percentage of what looked like sub-Saharan ancestry. [The 10 Things That Make Humans Unique]

    Some argued that this genetic diversity came from the Moorish occupation of the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe or the Roman contact with North African civilizations such as Carthage around 2,000 years ago.

    But because researchers didn't have DNA samples from people in North Africa, the link was difficult to prove.

    Many contacts

    The findings suggest contacts between the two continents left traces in the genetics of people of the Iberian Peninsula.

    "Studies such as this are key to improving our understanding of the impact of historical events and migration patterns in recent human history," Graham Coop, a population geneticist at the University of California, Davis, who was not involved in the study, wrote in an email. "There had been evidence of this contribution before, but the magnitude of the genome-wide contribution had been underestimated, in part due to the lack of dense sampling of Northern African populations."

    Though the findings are fascinating, the study researchers weren't able to resolve how much of this North African genetic component emerged during Roman times versus during the more modern Moorish occupation, said Priya Moorjani, a geneticist from Harvard University, who was not involved in the study.

    It would be really exciting to look at all these events, but with modern DNA it can be quite hard to do that."

    Instead, looking at ancient DNA from fossil skeletons of Romans and Moors could help to answer those more detailed questions, Moorjani said. :ehh:

    Now why don't they talk about all the European ancestry in North Africa?

    The Moors were fukking white women all over Southern Europe turning that area blacker. They were also importing white women into North Africa turning that area whites.

    Its why we see a lot of Klay Thompson looking muthafukkas roaming around both sides of the Mediterranean.

    Southern European nations were in contact and traded extensively with ancient North African and Middle Eastern nations for centuries before the Middle Ages.......

    This is in no way a surprise and is well-documented.

    Spain :scust:. Greece :scusthov:. Italy :pacspit:.

    Portugal is being humbled by the high poverty and unemployment rates and the rich Angolans who live the high life there.

    Saying that they ain't much better than the others :hhh:.

    But I thought Moors weren't black though. But CACs and c00ns told me they weren't:ohhh:


    Wait does that mean Africans had ships and were expert seafarers prior to the 1500s?

    Could that mean Africans sailed across the world and were in America before anyone, which explains why there are Black Native Americans?


    CACs and c00ns got alot of explaining to do

    From all this European racist countries Portugal is legit the best one to live if you are black(and have money of course)

    They are very broke and they are p*ssy (except in the north they are more open)

    If you black with money in Lisbon you can live like a king and the African and Brazilian community is big( sadly most are broke)
