"I'll keep reading. it's interesting but they are not black Africans, please let's not use this to include or incorporate another exotic group in our midst so as to cushion the black on black business that has to be resolve. It was done in the caribbean, in Africa and it stank."
Could u explain what was done in the Caribbean?
There are Black African looking people in India today, as well as in some islands off India. This is because of 3 main reasons that are outlined in the essay.
1) The Indus civilization was originally Black African.
3) Blacks Africans who were brought to India as slaves.
The dark-skinned Blacks presently in India look like Australian aborigines, the mixed ones, and Blacks like the regular dark-skinned Blacks in Africa. All these Blacks in India live in poverty and suffer the effects of the caste system. This link has some pictures of them.
