Although this winds up many Africans and black Americans no end, every DNA study of East Africans shows them to be about 40% Eurasian.

European don't look like like Ethiopians because modern humans came from that area-the first humans out of African looked more like Neanderthals then any modern human group. Ethiopians look a bit like Europeans and Arabs becasue they have a lot of Caucasoid ancestry.

For some relevant reading check this book link to see wwhat the worlds foremost DNA specialist has to say, page 174.

I"n summary, the information available on individual groups in Ethiopia and North Africa is fairly limited but sufficient to show that they are all seperate from sub Saharan Africans and that North Africans and East Africans (Ethiopians and Neighbours) are also clearly separate. Estimation of admixture by standard methods has given values of about 60% African and 40% Caucasoid using sub Sharans as African parents and Southwset Asians as Caucasoid parents."
