Response to malaise (Reply #1)

2. There were black people and there were wearing African attire.

Furthermore, they were very dark skinned, which suggests there was no admixture of other genes, so I didn't register them as Black Americans.

I designated the term "black Africans" because there are people living in African nations who are not black and they consider themselves African.

Just trying to be precise. I am an Anthropologist by training. I could have used terms such as "phenotypically representative of an indigenious African genotype", but that would have seemed a tad pretentious.
