Question by POIdsfijhfd: why do some people think the Moors were black Sub-Saharan Africans?
Anyone who says that is dumb.
The Moors were from MOROCCO. They were Berbers and Arabs.
They would have looked like this; http://www.exposay.com/celebrity-photos/emmanuelle-chriqui-i-now-pronounce-you-chuck-and-larry-world-movie-premiere-arrivals-0K4xCT.jpg
NOT like this; http://weblogs.newsday.com/entertainment/tv/blog/070614_oprah_vmed_12p.widec.jpg
the first girl is Emmanuelle Chriqui. and btw Shakespeare is not a good reference for judging if a group of people are black or not.
ancient egyptians looked like ethiopians/somalis so i’ll give you that, they were black.
I was going to post Beyonce at first instead of Oprah
Taylor V I have already admitted there is most likely Moorish/Arab ancestry in my family, I have cousins who look 100% Moroccan.
dolly317 – my great grandfather from portugal was also part cape verdean – i don’t doubt for one second that there is black somewhere in my family.
Shad – that Ethiopian woman looks East African, or like an ancient Egyptian. Since those who say the Moors were black say they are west African, they wouldn’t look like that.
