I should explain about the background of this issues: the racial classification in U.S. is a loosely defined caste system. It is invented to divide the property-less laborers and have no basis on genetic lineage. The living humans today all belong to a subspecies; non-African people have some genetic materials from Neanderthals, Denisovans, and possibly other unidentified human subspecies but those contribute less than 5% of the genes of any living ethnic groups.
Researchers has found some interesting facts on human genetic variability: 1) the genetic variability of Europeans and Asians overlap almost completely; 2) the variability of Europeans and Asians are embedded within the genetic variability of the Africans; 3) the Africans have way more genetic variability than both Europeans and Asians. Due to this, researchers believe that all living humans originate from Africa but obtain traces of genetic materials from the ancient Eurasia human subspecies when they went out of Africa.

Sub Saharan people have little to no Neanderthal DNA. North Africa has a little then Europe and Asia has tons of it.

Thats because North Africa is definition wise defined as Caucasian. The black race or Negro race is more or less here.


Although this map isnt 100% accurate. But it gives some clue though.
