They are definitely a type, and not just the extreme of a spectrum.
They wear glasses. I wonder sometimes whether this is an image thing (“I’m not like these ghetto kids, please let me out of here”), though I doubt it. Odd but related, we have been surprised to observe that myopia is rarer than expected in the Neanderhall.
Glasses aside, they dress like conservative professors, which means shirtsleeves, brown shoes, and sweaters. Except as the occasion requires, of course- they are not social retards, like some people I know :-P.
They tend to be at least somewhat melon-back and their faces are broad and healthy (more West African?), though we would probably still type them as cro/negroid. Among edenic morphs, they most closely approach big-eye melons. Older examples are Bill Cosby, Walter Williams, and Thomas Sowell. Younger examples are Rick Smith and Donald Glover. Cosby and Sowell lean more melon than the others, suggesting “cunning” and “affable” subtypes.
They do not lack their race’s characteristic charisma, but they tend to restraint, subtlety, conservatism in expression.
Their intellectual activity leans toward the human sciences and social engineering- race, civics, social matters, and economics- simply because they cannot escape their race, don’t want to, and generally seek to help other blacks to rise above the big inner city “trap”. They see it as their duty to promote the general welfare of the black community through positive activism.
If there is or has ever been a black female intellectual of note, I’ve never seen her picture. Black female melons do exist though, and they can be very successful socialites and managers of people. They seem to be pretty cynical though; Oprah comes to mind most easily. Also that drug dealing lady from Orange Is the New Black.
