But lets not forget that the Victorian english women developed the bustle mimicing said meat, their men lusting after the "Hottentot Venus" paraded around Europe in the 19th century.
Whitefella have lusted after our women from first sight,.. ancestral memory??? I was talking to a white neighbour, an old fella in his 70's who was telling me a story about a relative of his who was cheating on his wife. "What man wants a stick figure show pony in his bed, no wonder he went around the corner to a sweet little thing with some real meat on her bones". I had to laugh at that.
Seriously, my question is this, the Koisan are small people as we know them today, when did the extremely tall and very Black Ethiopian we know from the historical annals come into the mix? Some Sudanese tribes are still like this. Looking at the Maasai, the men are nearly always tall and very slim but the women petite. How is this? And what about you who we know as West Aficans today? I know the genetic maps but it is not enough information. I know that genetically Africa is the most diverse continent, of course and the Mother of mankind....but? Can you help?
