Who are the closest relatives of Africans?

According to Dienekes Pontikos, Africans are most closely related to European and Middle Eastern populations while being most distantly related to Native American Indians. The reason for this seems to be that Europe and the Middle East are closest to Africa while the Americas are the farthest away. It would also seem likely that Southern Europeans are more closely related to Africans than are Northern Europeans.
