Asian people first originated from AFRICA? is this true?

Question by : Asian people first originated from AFRICA? is this true?
I read somewhere that Asians first originated in Africa:

“In Cavalli-Sforza’s genetic clustering work (1988) South Chinese join Southeast Asians in genetic clustering while the North Chinese associate with Koreans, Japanese, Ainu, Bhutanese and Tibetans in genetic clustering. Other Southeast Asians include Malaysian, Viet Muong, Thai, Western Indonesian and Philippine.

Xiao and Cavalli-Sforza (2000) find the boundary between Northern and Southern Mongoloids to approximate the Yangtze River, and suggest that their ancestors arrived from Africa via separate routes. Principal component analysis of gene frequencies of Chinese populations

Other scientists have suggested that the finding of sharp genetic differences between North and South China is an artifact of using an insufficient number of samples. However, Xiao and Cavalli-Sforza (2000) has a larger number of samples than previous studies.”

It says that they originated from a part of Africa, if this is true, Black people are our long lost brothers and sisters?

Q&A: Someone told me. Is this true?

Question by : Someone told me. Is this true?
the US and its allies(UK,Australia,S.Korea,Japan,Canada… and the others) got into a war with China and its Allies(Russia,North Korea, and Vietnam). Now in this their are know nuclear weapons, or WMDs. Russia would split into(a side with China and a side with NATO), The war would be in Asia and Europe, the war would be at a stalemate, and both sides would put up mass AA batteries, large minefields and Pill Boxes, Anti-tank systems that Trench warfare would return and mass slaughter would come back, tactics would be back to charges and being mowed down. The Trenches would be more dangerous with mass aircraft falling from the skies(both sides would stop using aircraft for a while). Morale and shell-shock would be high for both sides, with a never-ending war, fought in an unconventional way, with conventional weapons. Both sides only gaining a few yards after months of fighting. What do you think of this Scenario?

And

The US CIA and secret service subvert the economies of China and Russia with counterfeit money. Israel attacks the nuclear sites in Iran
without US permission to fly over Iraq instead they secretly get Saudi Arabia to allow them to fly over their space. Iran turns Hezbollah towards the Jewish homeland and they unleash a mass of rocket propelled bombs in a guerrilla fashion raking havoc all over proper Israel. Iran sends its air force to bomb Israel and is totally outclassed and none of its planes return. Israeli leaders threaten nuclear attack against any nation that sets foot on Israeli soil, sends missiles into Israel territory, or aids another nation that does so, including Russia and China, Israel loses a lot of planes, but gets a lot of bda and its all good the bunker busters are working. Iran begins to mass troops in Syria with the support of southern Iraq leader AL Sadr, Israel aware of the buildup prepares its nuclear neutron cruise missiles and scatters its nuclear bomber fleet, at this stage the US nuclear submarines on full alert with all assets focused on Iran and Russia. North Korean leader dies, son is ceremonially installed and immediately attacks south Korea. Unable to defend Seoul the western leaders agree that Pyongyang must be eliminated and the north Korean military led out into the open and destroyed also, all with nukes and so we begin, as
china views unwelcome a nuclear disaster and human refugee on its southern border a new capitalist united Korea is too much so china
nukes south Korea and Tokyo and threatens the Us to stay out of Asia permanently, forces surround Israel, and as they move in for the coup DE grace, Israel sends dozens of nuclear missiles out and Moscow is destroyed along with several large Russian cities and Iranian Syrian also completely wiped out, Us sends a shock wave over china that kills every living human and animal on the continent, weapons of mass destruction take on new meaning as Russia goes to retaliate all their missiles are electronically jammed and cant be used, Russian aircraft are being shot out of the sky but some get through and western cites are nuked including tel av iv London new york, and Us decides to eliminate Russia also with a weapon of mass destruction, its Armageddon. life as we know it is never the same again.
