Talk:Sub-Saharan Africans

This is a very poor page and could even be on Wikipedia as it appears to concentrate on skin colours. When we were at school the many different characteristics of the Negro races were pointed out in detail. The origin of the word Negro might mean black but with the racial sciences developing over the centuries it has become specific to the Negro races (includes the Australian Aborigines) and has nothing whatsoever to do with other races, such as Indians living in the southern provinces of India. Their physical and mental characteristics are significantly different to negroes. This page needs serious editing. Matt58 (talk) 12:57, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

The article is not particularly good, with dubious material added by the previous group of trolling editors. I will try to improve it.
Regarding "Negro", it is rarely, if ever, used in current scientific literature on race. "Blacks" or "Sub-Saharan Africans" or similar words are the current terminology. "Negro" will likely be considered an offensive racial slur, name calling, and if not, archaic and strange. Old language is not necessary correct language, otherwise one could argue that Old English should be used, or Proto-Indo-European, or something even older. Furthermore, using "Negro" in certain ways is likely a criminal offence in various European countries, including Sweden and the United Kingdom. Upplysning (talk) 14:35, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
