View Full Version : Will this race become extinct soon?

Hottentottens and bushmen are about 500.000, and Negrid admixture seems to be common among them.

With the impending extinction of their culture and languages, I believe it is only a question of time before they are completely absorbed into a more generalized and mostly Negrid population matrix, probably with mere clinal approaches to the traditional Capoid/Khoisanid morphology.

It probably will, like so many other species in the world -human and non-human.

This is what you get when you mess with gene pools and mother nature as a whole.
And if one thinks "what do we care about the Capoid race or the such and such animal species, always remember that our own ticket to extinction might be up next. :|

They were much wider spread in the past and the process which might lead to their extinction began already many hundred, probably even thousands years ago with the Negrid expansion in their areas. Its similar to South East Asia in which more progressive forms pushed the culturally and biologically less developed groups more and more into areas of retreat, destroyed and infiltrated their communities and colonised their lands.
In fact that happened over and over again and it made some evolutionary sense as long as the form which expands just expands into the territory of both biologically and culturally less developed groups - the main problem is of an ecological nature since the higher developed units need often more energy, so a sustainable structure and balance must evolve locally.

The Bantu expansion is the main reason for a potential Khoisanid extinction, in fact. For the Khoids/Hottentotts whites might have accelerated the process since they were more evolved and stronger than the more one sided Sanids. For the later European influences might rather have helped them to keep their independence longer in a legal system which allowed them to do so without having to defend their "land rests" - which are mostly uninteresting for less one sided biological forms and cultural units, which is and always was their "best defence".
They are similar to some animal species, to help them to survive in an original form one would have to put them into an enclosed national park and even then it would just a question of time finally because no artificial structure will protect forever if the form is that weak I guess.

The racial type will many "survive" as an visible influence in Southern Negrids, with the whole Kafrid spectrum, which is mostly the result of Bantu-Negrid expansion, having visible admixture in the South already.
