Please refrain from adding speculations, especially if they are not clearly disclosed as speculations by including "it is possible that" or "possibly". J.R.R. Tolkien never said anything what he means with the terms Haradrim or "Men of the Harad" and what ethnic groups are or are not included by those terms. He once wrote in a draft version of what later became appendix A (The Heirs of Elendil), but which he changed later, that the sons of Castamir married "women of the Harad and had in three generations lost much of their Numenorean blood" or "had however become much mixed in blood through admission of Men of Harad, and only their chieftains, descendants of Kastamir, were of Numenoreanrace". This implies that men or women of the Harad does not include men or women of Númenorean blood (and so does not include Númenoreans that were of the party of the Kingsmen or Black Númenoreans or Gondorians. --Akhorahil 16:58, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
