1 Domari are considered to be a separate group from the Romani by many anthropologists and linguists.
2 Known as the British and Irish Isles in Ireland.
3 Jews, the Maltese and Habesha peoples are also speakers of the Semitic branch, yet differ enough genetically to be considered separate groups.
4 Caucasian groups are sometimes considered to be European rather than Middle Eastern, and although not a Caucasian group, Armenians are included for convenience sake.
6 Native Tasmanians no longer exist.
7 Term considered derogatory in many parts of the English-speaking world.
8 Also known as “coolies.”
I know he's part-black and part-Iranian, is he part-jewish (perhaps that's what his "Iranian blood" really is)?
Nevertheless, this map as a racial map of the world is incredibly inaccurate. For instance, although it puts the South Arabians as a Veddoid or Australoid group and gives a racial view of the middle east and India as well as the Americas, all of Europe is essentially a linguistic map. It groups all Europeans from Belgium to Romania, to both southern Spain and Italy as "Italic", giving Basque its own subsection, separating Cornwall from the rest of England and putting Hungary as "Uralic" (which unlike "Finno-Ugric" implies an origin near the Urals in Siberia) due to a vague linguistic connection, despite exempting most of the European arctic coast because they speak Russian. It also includes "Castizo" as a "northwest Eurasian" group and not a multiracial group.
he mentioned in the beginning of the video that he made the map based on combination of>genetics (haplogroups)>physical appearance>self identification of some groups
and that one of the biggest problems that limited the accuracy of the map was the number of colors he could use. In other words - the map would become unreadable if he wanted to show every ethnic group.>>1841
you're saying it like it makes him somehow wrong
I have seen other videos of his and the dude really knows what he is talking about and he says it in a surprisingly exact and objective way which is very rare with this kind of topic.
>>1843>and that one of the biggest problems that limited the accuracy of the map was the number of colors he could use. In other words - the map would become unreadable if he wanted to show every ethnic group.
Nowhere did I say that he should represent every ethnic group, I pointed out inaccuracies that he had made with ethnic groups, he's simply using linguistic categories with no firsthand knowledge of the actual ethnic groups. The Hungarians have a language that is considered by scholars to be Finno-Ugric, but is actually unintelligible to Finns and Estonians, and was originally thought to be a Turkic language; they don't resemble Finns and Estonians either. Thus classifying Hungarians as "Uralic" on not a linguistic, but a racial map is incredibly inaccurate, and so is classifying Karelia as Slavic. Similarly, the northern French and Spanish/Portuguese are considered "Italic" in the map, but that's only their linguistic identity, the native inhabitants of these countries are Celtic and Germanic, though Masaman only highlights Brittany as being Celtic, and the Basques as being their own people. >really knows what he is talking about
It's glued together research that anybody can do based on browsing Wiki pages and reading PCA charts, which is why there are so many inaccuracies in the map, like the fact that most of Europe is sorted together based on linguistics, not actual racial characteristics.
This map corrects the issue of western Europe being Italic, Hungary being Finnic, and the Castizos not being listed as multiracial, but it's still inaccurate when it comes to what Cornwall is compared to the rest of England, Karelia being Slavic, etc.
Why are Mormons listed as being a separate ethnic group?
