I hope this has not been posted here anywhere yet. This looks to be a very interesting new study. Both Dienekes and Razib have posted a bit about it.

The study reminds me of the Lemba tribe of southern Africa, which has substantial amounts of yDNA haplogroups J and T (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemba_people#DNA_testing) as well as a tradition of Middle Eastern origins.

^Yes it is starting to look like many native Africans have some degree of West Eurasian admixture in their genomes.

Heh, I actually made a blog post about this and connected the findings in Pickrell's study to a linguistics paper my broski Agamemnon showed me a while back (even showed Pickrell himself the paper):

The Savanna Pastoral Neolithic: A Cushitic Culture that genetically influenced various Southern Africans (http://anthromadness.blogspot.ae/2015/07/the-savanna-pastoral-neolithic-cushitic.html)

Just a note, since this has been bumped, that this subject has been touched on by a recent study:
