The original inhabitants of Madagascar were from Sunda Islands (i.e. They were Austronesian). In the past it was easier to move from Indonesia to Madagascar than it is to move from East Africa to Madagascar.

Or..because Austronesians knew how to sail?

Another fact: Cape Verde was completely uninhabited before Portuguese colonialism.

These facts aren't hard to know. However most people do not think about them.

Questions:
1.Why do Malagasy people speak an Austronesian language?
2.Why is Madagascar poor compared to Malaysia and Indonesia?

The habitation of Madagascar has always boggled my mind.

Another mind blower: The "Aryan Race," or Cumans have been touted as the prime European specimens by some (Blond hair, blue eyes). Despite that, their origins seem to be from inner Asia, possibly east of the Yellow River, making the Cumans the only Caucasian people to come out of what we think of when we hear the word, "Asia."

Also, non-related question: Why is the US the only country that gets flak for genocide? Everyone's done it. European powers during religious conflicts, African tribes wiping out other tribes. Even New Zealand, the country all the internet likes to say is more free than the US, is home to a genocidal people. There used to be a second tribe besides the Maori, called the Moriori, can't find a full blooded one of these guys today.

^^Because Europe and Asia are actually just one single continent. Russians in Novosibirsk are also Caucasians. So?
^I know. Their absolute pacifist policy leads to their demise. However the phrase "full blood" does not make any biological sense since the term "full blooded Moriori" is not a well-defined term.

^^^It is a well enough defined term. Though their tribe was a band of Maori initially, archaeologists see enough differences between the two groups. The last full-blood Moriori died in 1933.

I can tell you why I believe the term is not well-defined. The Moriori is either a culture or a race. If it is a culture the term "full blooded" makes no sense. If it is a race it has to be biologically distinct.

^Yeah.

I'm amazed by how Austronesians manage to colonize Madagascar though. They aren't known for very advanced civilizations but their sailing skills are impressive.
