This is completely wrong though. Even the contemporary sources available about these states show that that isn't the case at all. What are you basing this idea on? The Swahili (which is only one of the cultures mentioned in the thread)? Because that's basically the only case I can think of among those cultures mentioned where one could get that impression, although even in that case there was some distinctiveness in their culture. For the others that were mentioned, what you've described doesn't seem even remotely accurate or applicable.
By all means prove me wrong. I am always open to learning.
