You're right; all of modern Homo sapiens developed and dispered from the African continent. However, I assumed that in context of my first post, it would be clear that I was speaking only of people whose recent genetic heritage (last 30k years or so) is from Subsaharan Africa.
So, with these terms more clearly defined, what do you think?
