Jews of Africa Have the Skeletal Type of the Earliest Jews and Sephardim

Jews of Africa Have the Skeletal Type of the Earliest Jews and Sephardim

Source: The New International Encyclopædia, Volume 11 (Dodd, Mead) 1911 A.D. Note: Page 209 of the source. Page 209 of this source confirms yet again that the dolichocephalic skeletal type, which is seen predominately amongst black peoples, is the skeletal type of the original Jews that is preserved amongst the Jews of Africa and "perhaps a majority of the so-called Sephardim". Keep in mind that black peoples have been found in different skeletal types and that a variety of evidence must be used to arrive at the soundest conclusion of one's ethnicity, as well.

The Tribes of Kedar were Dark-Skinned People

The Tribes of Kedar were Dark-Skinned People

Source: The Villages of the Bible: Descriptive, Traditional, and Memorable (UC Southern Regional Library Facility) 1887 A.D. Note: Page 182 of the source. This source reaffirms for us the blackness of the tents of Kedar and Kedar, one of the grandsons of Abraham, himself. This source yet again destroys the notion that some people believe all black people are Hamites because we clearly see that Abraham, who was of Shem, was having black/dark-skinned grandchildren. When someone is being compared to the tents of Kedar or to a Cedar tree, it is because they are an extremely black/dark-skinned person.
