Race and Body Hair

Barbara Domino: Are hair strands used for identification of ancestry…Caucasian, Negroid or Mongoloid classification?

Can be. The hairs of the races are different. For that matter, Negrito and Melanesian (woolly) hair is different from Black hair (kinky or coiled). Aborigine (wavy) and Papuan hair is different from Caucasian hair. And Negroid hair is different from Khoisan hair (very tightly coiled and spotty).

Mongoloid hair – straight, black, smooth and sparse, seems different from Caucasian hair.

Not that anyone has any hair on their bodies anymore anyway, but back in the days before body hair went extinct, Asian body hair was definitely different from that of Caucasians and Black body hair differed from Caucasians and Asians.

I know nothing of the body hair of Negritos or Aborigines. When the shaving fad finally hits the devastated Outback or the ruined Aeta villages on the jungle mountains, you will know that the whole world is now postmodern and globalized with nothing left to discover.

Sigh. Alas.

Speaking of which, anybody know where I can get me one of those Aborigine chicks? How bout those cute little Negrito ladies?

Bucket list, guys.

    Yeah you can probably find them in a brothel in Australia. Australia has legal prostitution, which is fucking cool.

      When an Aborigine asks you for gas to huff, make them earn it. Then just fart in their face when you’re done.

    As I understand it Negrito (originally Spanish for “little blacks”) is falling out of out of favor. Aeta, a term used in several provinces in Luzon, is derived from regional dialect of the earlier conquerors (the Asian migration predating the Spaniards and Americans) basically also means black or dark. There are numerous groups of indigenous (as defined by the Filipino government) in the Philippines. Their phenotype can range from what Americans might consider sub-Saharan African to a generally darker than average complexion but within the spectrum of a Filipino (from the later Asian migrations) phenotype.

    The photos from the link below, in my experience, are a fairly reasonable representation for the phenotype for the Aeta in Luzon:

    But I don’t agree with the text of the article, that the plight of the Aeta is as bad as described, at least as compared to Filipinos in general. That said, until a few years ago, employment ads would not only openly advertise age restrictions but also seek employees with a good “complexion”. You will find few darker complected people in any higher or even medium status positions in the Philippines. However there is increasing awareness that prejudice against indigenous people needs to go away.

    If you parse through the link below you’ll see phenotypes ranging from Melanesian to Austronesian.

    The Austronesian indigenous people probably descended from latter migrations of people from Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc but resisted assimilation when the Spanish and later Americans arrived.

    I know you are basically (mostly) joking but some thoughts. You can find women with a Melanesian phenotype in many urban and semi-urban areas of the Philippines. Given your light skin complexion and higher social status it would not be too hard to find a woman with a dark complexion and woolly hair to take interest in you and perhaps eventually you will meet her family members in one of the many urban squats or a rural village. Afterwards do your best to suppress anger and fury over their situation and resist the position of becoming “the great White hope”.

    For the record – During coitus, the woolly hair of Melanesian women can be like a Brillo pad to a certain part of one’s anatomy.
