Tutsis have cushitic blood at rates of 60% lol. Cushitics use to live all the way to Tanzania once upon a time. They got absorbed by incoming nilotic and Bantu tribes (mostly nilotic ones like the Samburu and Maasai). Fulani do have some cushitic, but not a lot they're mostly West African with a bit of North African (Turages are 1/2 and 1/2 while Fulani are sort of 3/4 West Afro and 1/4 North African, sort of like that). Afar are our cousins as are the Beja .

By the way I think that some of the Toubou people of Southern Libya/northern Chad/Niger look a bit Somali, its a bit surprising

Zubeir you should also put Masai in there as well as Samburu.
this.

the Samburu in particular have that classic Somali appearance that is hard to reproduce by just mixing bantus with whites. tall, dark skin, slender, with a narrow nose and meduim thick lips. really the only difference i can see most times between the samburu and somali is that we have more people with timo jileec while they are almost exclusively jareer. other than that, there is little to no difference in facial features or build.

none of these light skin mulatoos pictured here resemble the classic somali figure.

AFRICAN ethnic groups that look like Somalis there are many Oromo Amhara Masai Beja etc that look like Somalis. Some of these of other saharan ethnic groups look a like a bit like Somalis but not that close really when compared to the other horners.
