The population of modern China, owes its genetic origins to Africa.” “Skeletal remains from the Hoabinhian and Bacsoinan strata, similar to those found in southwest China, bear Oceanic African features.”
These people, east of India, and are direct descendants of the first modern humans to have inhabited Asia,
Four of the numerous groups that once inhabited the Andamans survive. These include the Jarawa, who still live in the forest, and the Onge, who have been settled there by the Indian government.
Similar groups of Black people have been identified in Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia, and it seems almost certain that at one time, Black populations of this type covered much of Asia, including early China and especially southern China.
Regarding the African presence in early China civilization, three dynasties in particular stand out — the Shang, the Tang and the Yuan.
The Shang Dynasty (1766-1027 BCE), China’s first dynasty, dating from the 18th to the 11th century BCE, apparently had a Black background, so much so that the conquering Zhou described them as having “Black and oily skin.”
In the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) founded by Kubilai Khan, the Black presence is visible in a number of notable paintings. The first of these paintings by the Yuan court artist Liu Guandao in 1280, now in the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan, is of a Mongol hunting scene.
Speaking of which, the famous Chinese sage, Lao-Tze (ca. 600 BCE), by tradition, was “Black in complexion.” Lao-Tze was described as “marvelous and beautiful as jasper.” Magnificent and ornate temples were erected for him, inside of which he was worshipped like a god.
