How a Genetic Mutation Led to the White "Race"

By January 29, 2011

Follow me on:

Imagine a world where everyone had brown skin. Tens of thousands of years ago, that was the case, say scientists at Penn State University. So, how did white people get here?

Evidently, when humans began leaving Africa 20,000 to 50,000 years ago, a skin-whitening mutation appeared randomly in a sole individual. That mutation proved advantageous as humans moved into Europe. Why? Because it upped the amount of vitamin D the migrants had.

"Sun intensity is great enough in equatorial regions that the vitamin can still be made in dark-skinned people despite the ultraviolet shielding effects of melanin," explained Rick Weiss of the Washington Post. "In the north, where sunlight is less intense and cold weather demands that more clothing be worn, melanin's ultraviolet shielding became a liability, the thinking goes."

The Penn State researchers also found that Asians developed light skin because of different genetic mutations. So, what does this mean? Have scientists identified a race gene? Hardly. As the Post notes, the scientific community maintains that "race is a vaguely defined biological, social and political concept, ... and skin color is only part of what race is--and is not."

As I've explained in my "What Is Race?" piece on the Race Relations site, scientists still say that race is more of a social construct than a scientific one because people of the so-called same race have more distinctions in their DNA than people of different races do. In fact, scientists posit that all people are roughly 99.5 percent genetically identical.

The Penn State researchers' findings on the skin-whitening gene show that skin color amounts for a miniscule biological difference between humans.

"The newly found mutation involves a change of just one letter of DNA code out of the 3.1 billion letters in the human genome--the complete instructions for making a human being," the Post reports.

Still, scientists and sociologists fear that the identification of this skin-whitening mutation may lead people to argue that whites, blacks and others are somehow inherently different.  Keith Cheng, the scientist who led the team of Penn State researchers, wants the public to know that's not so. He told the Post, "I think human beings are extremely insecure and look to visual cues of sameness to feel better, and people will do bad things to people who look different."

His statement captures what racism is in a nutshell. Truth be told, people may look different, but there's virtually no difference in our genetic make up. Skin color really is just skin deep.

(1) Palmer says:

There’s the problem, right in the title.
White is a skin colour- Caucasians (A/K/A Caucasoids or Europids) is a race.
White only refers to just that, a lighter colour- while the Caucasian race refers to entire genetic differences, cultural differences and regional differences.

In fact, the name refers to the Caucus regions.
That is why it is healthier for us to use the word “European” instead of White.

Sorry, but this is simply inaccurate and is not really referring to the ‘White Race’.

You can see that race is in quotes to suggest that I’m undermining the concept of race. Moreover, the article itself discuss the futility of using the term “race” scientifically. There’s no white race, Caucasian race, etc., according to scientists. Please read the article. Thanks.

(3) Jefetonista says:

Palmer is misguided–that’s clear.

The geneticists have concluded that humans are of one race, but they have formed many cultures, each with its own characteristics.

Mutations are also something that science has identified in many cases. Genes, for whatever reason, mutate, sometimes in negative ways: such as passing on a gene in a family for heart problems. Unfortunately, Alzheimers seems to be also a disease that’s passed on geneticcally.

As long as some people continue to believe that there are many races, the racial problems we know and experience will fester. Until people accept that everyone is simply a humnan being, there won’t be a lasting peace.

Insescurity, the need to dominate over others to hide one’s low self esteem, as well as the need to achieve superiority are at the heart of racism. There’s another aspect: sexuality. The black male threatens many white males, especially in the south. One of the biggest fears was that a southern white women would be sexually attracted to a black male, who often wore little clothing and were usually naked during slave sales. Hence much of the hatred toward black males.

It gets muckier and muckier, but racism has at its core the worst that human beings can express.

We need to be thankful that science has been unraveling the stereotypes concerningg race, that it has been credibly explaining the role that genes play in nearly all aspects of our physical and psychological makeup.

Hey, I think it’s true that races don’t exist and it’s all a social construct, but still there is a lot racism in society and I have been discriminated against. :(
I was recently denied scholarship financial support due to my “race”. Apparently it was directed to “Black students”, however I don’t believe in race so I tried for it nonetheless claiming to be a Black boy (which I am). Still they denied me the scholarship claiming that I wasn’t Black just because I have milky white skin, blue eyes, brown hair, a long jaw and a long thin nose. I told them they were racist as black people do come in many colours, and that’s because races don’t really exist, thus if I identify with being Black I should be considered Black :( but they were still racists and judged me for my race as if they were evil nazis. What should I do now? I think this is so unfair x(

Racism like this should be stopped or people like me will keep being discriminated :( don’t you agree?

I think this article is very misleading. The fact of the matter is when you write that there is “virtually no difference in our genetic make up,” you are ignoring that even minute genetic differences translate to HUGE differences in the real world. We share half our DNA with bananas and 98/99% of it with chimps. Even the differences that the writer or some researchers at Penn State judge to be “small,” (notice “small” is never qualified) may very well may not be in real terms. The cultural differences sure seem to suggest the differences are substantial. Because where does culture come from? Does it drift over a human population like rain cloud or is it not a manifestation of a group of people’s sensibilities?

No one would say that the differences among breeds of dogs amount to nothing. Yet, between certain groups of people, there is a greater genetic difference than there are between certain breeds of dog.

Getting hung up on the word “race” is really silly. All progressives tend to do is play with langauge to ignore the 800lb gorilla in the room. We can label the different groupings of humans “breeds” or “ethnicities” or whatever. It still does change the very real differences that have been observed physically. Anthropologists can still determine the race of someone using BONE fragments. We observe that certain races excel at different physical activities while there is also a marked cognative difference (those pesky IQ tests).

If race were such a “social construct,” then why does certain medicine work better on different races? Why do mixed race children have a harder time accepting organs from donors? This is all politically incorrect information that doesn’t change no matter how much you try to play race down.

(6) Racially Conscious says:

And I’d also like to add that this attitude (“race is just a social construct”) is largely a RECENT Western attitude. Take it from someone who’s been abroad. The Chinese (no intellectual slouches) aren’t mouthing this nonsense and downplaying their unique racial identity. Nor are the Japanese or the Koreans. Differences within the human continuum are very real even if it won’t win me any popularity contests for saying so. Do the people here intend to ignore that some humans have neanderthal genes and others don’t? Do you intend to ignore the documented disparity in maturation rates among races along differences that exist below the skin (bone density)?

In fact, the very man who co-discovered DNA (Dr. James Watson) was treated like Satan for giving his honest opinion about race because it was hurtful (though no necessarily untrue). The fact of the matter is that this politically correct approach to race stagnates any real progress that can be made on the subject of race relations.

Hi…

When I read your article, I didn’t think it would stir up much if any controversy. It is kind of old news. Like really old. And the idea that “race” is a social construct has been batted around for years. I thought it was nice that you were sort of restating the obvious.

And then I read some of the comments… eeek…

My only comment on the comments is a simple truth….

There is more diversity in any group of people than there is between two separate groups. Also every point of divergence within a group… is likely a point of similarity between groups.

Lets try it out.

Whites are tall, medium height and short, slim, athletic, fat, muscular, stocky, stupid, smart, of average intelligence and there are even some geniuses. They are also male, female, transgender, straight, bi, lesbian, gay and questioning. These are all points of divergence within the group.

African Americans are tall, medium height and short, slim, athletic, fat, muscular, stocky, stupid, smart, of average intelligence and there are even some geniuses. They are also male, female, transgender, straight, bi, lesbian, gay and questioning. These are all points of divergence within the group.

Christians are tall, medium height and short, slim, athletic, fat, muscular, stocky, stupid, smart, of average intelligence and there are even some geniuses. They are also male, female, transgender, straight, bi, lesbian, gay and questioning. These are all points of divergence within the group.

Jews are tall, medium height and short, slim, athletic, fat, muscular, stocky, stupid, smart, of average intelligence and there are even some geniuses. They are also male, female, transgender, straight, bi, lesbian, gay and questioning. These are all points of divergence within the group.

They are also points of similarity between the groups.

So using “race” as a significant reference point is a little silly.

Discriminated, You made a feeble attempt at parody, but you are just an a**hole.

Racially Conscious, It’s foretelling that you make a reference to IQ while misspelling the word cognitive as cognative. Ignorant bozo. And saying something is politically correct does not remove its validity, it is just a way for you to deligitimize another’s viewpoint and indicates your disregard of relevant facts. While I cannot be sure, I think you are probably a white supremacist attempting to lend credence to your misguided grasp of reality. Oh, I’m white, but not a supremacist.

Robert, nice point about similarities between groups.

Great article! However, I could help but read the comments. Interesting points. One thing I must point out though is that being interested in the same sex on an intimate basis of sexual relations is not of Christianity. While on the subject of Christianity, it has also been stated in the Biblical doctrines that in the building of the tower of Babylon skin color and language was changed. Its something to think about. Once again, really neat article! God bless!! =)

You have to apply science and logic when trying understand this. An African would not change that drastically during an ice age. One exodus out of Africa would not make an entire population of Europeans with red, blond hair and green, blue, hazel eyes. Black skin is representation of the spectrum an absorprion of the primary colors red, blue, and yellow. White is a reflection of those colors as shown through the hair and eye color as well as their stages of bruising. White skin did not come from climatic conditions but from selective breeding. The same that is known and done to dogs and anything else they want to genetically alter is their beginning (genesis).

(14) M. O. says:

As an anthropologist with advanced degrees in the natural and social sciences I have to say that articles like these are just terrible. The writer obviously does not have a scientific background nor did she do her research. What she is referring to is the ‘Vitamin D Hypothesis’ — something that’s been around for a long time. Unfortunately she writes as if there was one mutation, one time, which led to the creation of ‘White’ people. This was not the case and no one has ever suggested such a thing. My guess is she took some comments by scientists out of context, injected her own cultural interpretations, and then wrote the article based on these interpretations. In any event, judging by the comments left here this has created more confusion than necessary.

It’s like this: Humans moved out of Africa to the Middle East and Central Asia; these groups moved into Europe to the west, and Asia and eventually the Americas to the east. There is no sharp distinction between these groups. There is no such thing as ‘pure’ people as opposed to ‘mixed’ people – all people are a genetically mixed. Everyone on Earth is closely related – more so than most species – which is why our genetic code is virtually identical. Instead of sharp divisions between people what we see are ‘clines’. These represent subtle variations over geographical space but when viewed as a whole demonstrate physical continuity within our species.

The point is, no matter what criteria you try to control for
there will always be individuals who fall in and out of the so-called ‘races’ you fabricate. And that’s the whole point – people fabricate ‘races’, nature does not.

My suggestion to anyone who wants to learn more about human evolution and diversity is to take a biological anthropology course at your local college. As difficult as it is for some to accept (and this goes for those with dark skin just as much as it goes for those with fair skin) all of us represent different shades of the same people.

(15) Blackmatterx says:

SKIN COLOR IS NOT JUST SKIN DEEP. This is the biggest lie in science. Black people get their superior genes and color from Melanin, which gets its color from Carbon — THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE. According to science, white and albino is one in the same. Albinism include pale skin, light hair and eyes, hypersensitivity to UV Rays, early aging, low birth rate, infertility, birth defects, and many other disorders that DO NOT affect Blacks, especially Black Africans that have not breed with non-Africans. Blacks did NOT turn white due to malnutrition, climate adaptation or lack of vitamin D. The first Albino was genetically grafted from a black Neanderthal, which is why scientists asserts all non-Africans share 2% Neanderthal ancestry. Regardless how scholars play with the sciences, the fact remains that Blacks were the first race and all others are sub-species of the Black people. Plain and Simple.

Wow people need to see all sides. Denying someone a scholarship based on pigmentation level of skin is WRONG just as much as forcing someone to sit in the back of the bus based on their pigmentation level is WRONG; Discriminated has a valid point. Scholarships should only be given to people that prove to have the academic smarts that would merit a SCHOLARship without regard to one’s skin color.

I feel sure that “Blackmatterx” is a troll… “color from Melanin, which gets its color from Carbon — THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE.” Are you trying to infer that lighter skined people have less carbon somehow and therefore do not possess as many of the building blocks of life? Hillarious! Please, do tell more jokes. I would like to see your scientific sources where it states that “white and albino is one in the same.” You do realize these are controlled by separate segments in DNA, right? Also, stop thinking in terms of Black and White for a moment and think Human! Now, once you have wrapped your mind around that, think about this example statement “Greens were the first race and all others are sub-species of the Green people.” So you are saying that a color is equal to race?

There is one race, the HUMAN race. If extraterrestial life ever lands on Earth and starts killing us for resources, they are not going to care if you are lighter and darker, they base that on your race — that of Human. Then and only then will you have experienced racism.

“Plain and simple.”

I agree with Blackmatterx. Its fact. White skin scientifically is a form of albinism. Its a genetic mutation and whites have recessive genes.
That’s A FACT! Their skin is even leading to their extinction from photolysis. Do your research people!!!!

Tell me now…what do you think would happen if the black people in africa stopped receiving aid………..wait why do they need aid?-ohh yeah I remember, I think its because they would all die off or somthing like that.. (just incase your to stupid to understand sarcasm…the only reason the black africans havnt yet gone extinct is because they are constantly receiving aid because obviously there to stupid to survive without it because they are CLEARLY inferior on some genetic level)

If “white skinned” people is a form of albinism…WHY THE HELL DOES ALBINISM OCCUR IN ALL RACES!!? And why the hell do albinos have more genetic defects than “white skinned” people. White skinned people can tan. They have melanin. Albinos with OCA can’t tan! Infertility? Really? My brother has albinism…he has a kid. I have albinism, I’ve gotten my ex pregnant twice before. Birth defects…well no s–t! We’re genetically mutated! Of course we’re going to have birth defects. Early aging? What the hell? I know people with Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (a genetic disorder that causes a type of albinism) die early…why? Because they end up developing pulmonary fibrosis! Early aging? Albinos can grow to be old too. There are BLACK ALBINOS!!!!! In fact, THEY ARE BEING KILLED IN AFRICA. Mainly Tanzania. Why!? Because witch doctors think they can make a WEALTH potion out of people with albinism’s body parts. Don’t tell me white people and albinos are ONE IN THE SAME. If THAT’S the case. Then albinism is the SUPERIOR RACE for being to occur in ALL RACES!!!

So you people (those parroting race as a social construct) are telling me that you think there is no such thing as the black/African/negroid race? No such thing as the Asian/Mongoloid race? I don’t think they’d agree with you.

We africans don’t get any kind of aid, you do:
1) the money you say you lend to us ends-up 95% in your own banking accounts, & 5% to the people you corrupt there & pay your militaries there who shoot us whenever we try to get rid of those damned masons & traitors leading our countries for your companies’ interest, How many coups have you conducted ? From the middle-age to 2011 with libya & Ivory Coast, your killings & rapings in Congo for the coltan, rwanda, pretending it was an “inter-ethnic massacre”.
Yeah, 1000 farmers with machetes killed 1 millions others including militaries for what… yeah for gold/coltan/b> that ends-up where… in your industries. How lucky you are, right? Please, cut the bigotry.
2) let’s ask the other way around: what will happen
to the western world when we get rid of that system -and we will soon- & won’t let you have our coltan, gold, oil, gas, diamonds, coffee etc for free? How will your industries go round? Man, you’re even so smart that you end-up the most indebted economies & that hopeless financial crisis of yours in spite of your constant stealing, looting & getting every single natural resources for free

If you want to disappear so badly why won’t you just self-destruct & let us be? Before you give me some crappy answer like “all human cultures do this & that“, I want you to think: how many cultures have theorized racial inferiority? How many have made it a “science” in order to justify invading, destroying, enslaving, mutilating, torturing, constantly ridiculing, looting of others?
How many cultures have built themselves solely through the constant aggression of others? Just how many have been waging wars relentlessly to others one after another & very viciously export that way of a living in order to perpetuate that system?

And about the “iq” thing: did you know average black child before he enters school system displays higher potential than average white child? BUTwhen both get into the school system, one is constantly diminished & confronted to & identified with a violently/aggressively negative representation of himself, which he is constantly thought to integrate through the school system, medias, institutions, society; while the other’s ego is constantly artificially boosted through bigotry, misrepresentations & lies (we give this to africans, we invented this & this, our ancestors build civilizations, well they were the only ones to do so, look at the others, all they’re good at is sport & dancing & entertaining).
OF COURSE this will have an impact on them.

Now, add the social conditions, discriminations, how would you expect otherwise? Only bigots can ignore all this & say “yeah whites are genetically smarter“. Which is another way to say “yeah, it’s not our fault if we discriminate against & destroy others, it’s their genes that are inferior“.
Isn’t that what the writers of “the bell curve“-which all white supremists have been reading & keep quoting- keep saying through their “study”?

These “powers that be” are the international banking cartels and their military-industrial-complex and big business crime partners headquartered mainly in NY, DC, London, Paris and Tel Aviv.. These evil parasites are deceiving, screwing over, and killing (through wars and otherwise when necessary) the average citizens of the Western nations as much as they are you and your people.

They sure as hell are not acting in my best interest (I’m a White-European American). Nor the best interest of anyone other than a very very small minority of “ruling class elite” types and their many useful stooges.

Whining about “bigotry”, “racism” and “white supremacy” is playing right into their hands. They want conflict. It’s called divide and conquer. They play it within nations and between nations of the world. Their using the average citizens in Western nations as pawns in their devious little game of World conquest. They use massive amounts of psychological warfare and social conditioning to manipulate the general public.Much of this little section on supposed “race relations” also plays right into their hands. In the bigger picture we all have the same common enemy.

The reason their going broke (our countries in the West) is because of a fraudulent monetary and banking system foisted on us.. Along with other massive corruption (theft) and manipulation of our stock market, currencies and economy. The Federal Reserve, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Bank of International Settlements and many other organizations and policy groups are at the forefront of this malicious scheme. Here in America and abroad.

Of course this is all very much over-simplified in order to keep it short, but the bottom line is that there is a relatively small cabal ruining America, Europe, the West and much of the rest of the World. Their attempting to bring about a global government and economic system with a chosen few at the top.

National & tribal sovereignty and ethnic & racial self-determination and rights for all peoples of the world is the only solution to this distopian globalist “One World” Orwellian nightmare.

Their only loyalty is to money, power and control. If you think it has anything to do with race you’ve been hoodwinked.

For one, your govts aren’t killing as many in your countries as in ours, that’s a lie. And they sur are not creating such dramatic situations either.
I was replying to that jerk who was babbling about how we would be nothing without so called western help and explaining to that bigot that in fact without that parasiting the whole western world wouldn’t exist no more, including your daily jobs and the routine you are acustomed to.
Quit confusing calling describing a situation & whinin; If someone robs you, then he’s a robber, if someone kills you, then he’s a killer. How does it become whining whenever an african talks about what makes our day by day struggle? Are you suggesting I should just shut up and let any bigot insult us with his lies? Are you suggesting I should justify the fact that I’m fed-up with this situation and can’t stand people laughing at that nightmare that we live everyday so you can have relatively stable lives in your countries?
I know full well what that new world order is willing to impose on us all. The problem is most of you won’t fight it and here, most of us won’t make a difference, for we lack means to fight back. Anyway, there are some solutions. We’ll be fighting til the end of it and we’ll be successful.
I don’t think it has anything to do with my race, they made it so. It is a reality that racism is natural among you. It is also a reality that killing, torturing us often has no interest at all even for that new world order and is done just for “fun”.
To conclude, if you’re trying to say we should be friends or something, I don’t mind, then start your friendship by spreading the truth to your people and have them stop the massacre. Then we’ll be in true communion.

You don’t seem to realize that western invasion made that invention into a reality through imposing its racialist vision to the rest of the world.
This is so true that you even go as far as to call a native african (the black african «skull of Homfrey» a «caucasoid»(i.e. north asian). You even dare say that East Africans who are just native africans are in fact black caucasoids, instead of just admitting that you are white african descendants.
See where the problem lies? Colour, race became an issue because your culture made it so & forced the whole world into that trap.

The deceptions, contradictions, double-standards, hypocrisy’s and outright lies are becoming more and more apparent by more and more people. Soon enough, the real problems will be addressed.

Well, it seems clear. NO, we can’t all get along.

There are those who want to use “race” to denounce others as inferior. And then, those who are being denounced as inferior use the same concept of “race” to proclaim that they are in fact superior.

Yes, we can see skin color, eye color, and all manner of physical differentiation among us, you know, those called the human “race”.

To try to understand “race”, maybe we should start with another human invention, taxonomy. Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.

The last one, “species”. What is that? A Species is often defined as a group of individuals that actually or potentially interbreed in nature. In this sense, a species is the biggest gene pool possible under natural conditions. We’ll keep it to that general definition.

So, we have there a definition of what “man/human” is. “Homo sapien sapien” is US, humans. There is no differentiation here between “white” humans, “black” humans, etc… Our species is “homo sapien sapien”, or modern “human”.

Many/most scientists don’t like the word “race” as it doesn’t fit in the generally accepted taxonomy. Species tells us what we need to know about “humans”. “Race” implies many different things
, and people have used and use the term “race” as if it’s a defining scientific term. It isn’t.

If you want to be scientific, then use “human” as the species. If you use “white”, “black”, “Asian”, then you are using a construct that humans love to us, categorization. We humans love to put things into neat categories, just like when taxonomy created that categories listed above.

(39) TT says:

Physical characteristics are real. How much signifigance you put on those characteristics tells me how intellectually and emotionally one has evolved beyond the basics of “flight or fight”. All humans have big brains. Some humans have bigger brains, but that has more to do with the size of the skull and not the color of the skin. There have been many quack scientists who try to use brain size to determine the intelligence of an individual and then try to ascribe that to a greater population. It’s absurd. Women tend to have smaller brain size than men. Are women less smart then men? Do women tend to have lower IQ’s then men? No, they don’t. Human brain size is significant to other animals. We have a great capacity to learn. That’s why we have geniuses from all categories of human skin variation. OH, and all humans can breed, and their offspring can breed as well, which means we are of the same species. Good for us I say! :)

If you don’t like a particular stupid individual, then ok whatever. But, to then take that persons skin color, or eye color, or nose shape, and then attribute that to a whole type of human, and then construct the word “race” so that you can define that type of human, only confirms that even though we have big brains, that don’t mean we all have big intelligence. :)

Abishalom says “The “mutation” for white people is called ALBINO.”

Wrong.

Like TT, J and some others before you, your either seriously misinformed, ignorant or just purposely spouting nonsense..

Do a google image search for albino African and albino Asian. It’ll make perfectly clear the outwardly distinct physical differences between White-European peoples, African albinos and Asian albinos. Race is far more than just a social construct.

Race is real and does matter. Physically (outwardly), biologically (internally) and spiritually (consciously). For the better, for all races. And that’s not making comparative — better, worse or superiority — judgments between the races. Only acknowledging reality and the facts. All this no matter how hard our Thought Control monitors and their indoctrinated legions in the Western world want us to believe otherwise.

Trying to negate or ignore race will not solve the problems amongst us (whether real, imagined and/or purposely exacerbated). Only complete and straightforward honesty, fair-mindedness and sincerity will bring about solutions to racial animosity and conflict in nations and amongst the varied nations. All the different races, nationalities and ethnicity’s of our world deserve preservation and self-determination..

The powers that be in our world (primarily the financial and political “ruling elite” top 1% to 5%) use and fan the flames of these conflicts against the common folk/people as a ‘divide and conquer/rule’ strategy. One major reason why multiracial nations and societies have so many problems with cohesion and stability.

If the differences between blacks and whites are limited to skin pigmentation, then how is it possible to determine the race of a skull? Also, why are the vast majority of professional football and basketball players black? It’s not because white people don’t want to play professional football or basketball, blacks just tend to be better at it. We’re all human, yes, but race is a very real thing. Denying our differences is unhealthy, we should be celebrating them!

(45) Sandy says:

Race is esentially an illusion, based much more in culture than genes, but it does exist. Each generation of children in my lifetime has slowly chiped away at bigotry, racism and segregation, AND the genetic differences between us, hopefully someday these things will nothing more than history to be studied.

People are discrimated against, whites too, but MAINLY minorities.

The idea that Africans do not share any Neanderthal DNA is slightly misinformed (Even the Ancient Egyptians had some Neanderthal DNA, as shown by Tut’s Haplogroup) the ONLY Africans who do not have Neanderthal DNA are sub-saharan African communities that have NEVER intermingled with any other racial groups.

African Americans, european Africans, Northern Africans, even Ethiopians have some Neanderthal DNA.

Only Africans whose never left AND whose ANSCESTORS never left sub-saharan Africa AND never intermarried/mated with anyone whose had or whose anscestors had does not have any Neanderthal DNA.

This primarilly refers to the tribal groups sub-saharan Africa, like the Zulu, Masai, Bushmen, Bemba, Samburu, etc.

So, all humans with the exception of some isolated African Ethnic groups are a tiny bit neanderthal.

Don’t worry, they had bigger brains than us anyway :OD

I was told, white people came about by dna manipulation with animals. That they were originally dark skinned and worship a pagan demon that caused them to manipulate their dna with animals and became cursed with animal disease plagues and would do anything to not let that cat out the bag. I don’t know how true that really is, but I remember in elementary school when the nurse visited our room and searched everyones hair. I didnt understand why until they mentioned little bugs. And the girl across from me showed me at recess before they came and she had the same little bugs in her hair that I saw in the hairs of dogs, really little bugs crawling everywhere. As a child I thought this was completely odd and even cried when I saw white people because I was scared of them after that because I didnt understand what they were. Then I was told later in my teenage years they are a mixture of human and animal which didnt make it any better. But now as an adult, I respect the relationships I have with everyone.

(48) Cassandra says:

Woa, there are a lot of uneducated people on here just throwing out info like they are scientists….the only comment ı felt was completely off base and designed to hurt fair skinned people would be the albino comment. I was just reading in the american journal of medicine that albinos have issues with melanin in the body, for some reason their skin cannot store melanin which is flushed to the liver resulting in organ problems and poor health. 1 out of every 17,000 people worldwide will be born albino. This extremely rare disorder effects every human being. Also, i disagree that african genes are superior but they are dominent because many european genes are ressesive and non dominant because they are mutations that have not been around for much of our shared human ancestry. I know a black girl who married a whiite guy and they baby favored him. Just look at mariah carry and nick cannon, their mom is part black and their dad is black but those two look more white than black at least to me. Beautiful people make beautiful children! On a final note, barrack obama has his mothers eyebrows! Check out some photos, he totally resembles his mom. Let us be a colorful rainbow!

What a good example! IMAGINE!!!
Ofcourse that’s all the White Man’s fault! lol
She may be right, we may have all sprung from the same genes at one time or another. And we may have changed into a lighter skinned and phyiscaly larger brained culture as we moved north. That’s called evolution! We should be celebrating our differences and accomplishments, or is that only reserved for the non-white races.

I was suprised to see that ,ost of my friends were white because I honestly didnt care back then. I went to an all- white school when I was a little older, but I was never disriminated against.
Amyway I do believe that it is not just skin color. There are alot of physical differences among different skin colors. But, I gew up on the stories that white people were created by a scientist yeas ago. Not whte people exactly, but that color of skin. I belive his name was yakuub or Jacob. I dont know.

Seriously people, there are physicall differences among races, But why cant we just look at a person and see a person instead of making a huge deal out of it. We can leave all the expalining besides that to the scientist.

I’m talking about savages, plain and simple. Who wouldn’t what to distance themselves from these savages. Contrary to popular belief, this behavior is in the DNA. (I’ve learned much about sacred shapes on a Light Language) What you put out, is encoded in your DNA and passed along into you offspring. That whats part if that 1%.

There was a huge amount of raping going on in America alone. With 20-million illegitimate children to prove it. DNA points to the fathers and grandfathers of everyday people that blacks work with everyday.

To date no one cent of child-support has ever been collected. This makes America fore-fathers the worst “dead beat” DADS ever!!!

There are biological differences in the races. Ever see a black olympic swimmer? You probably won’t because they have denser muscle tissue and are heavier & stronger, which is a moot point until you get to the level of training required in competition.
Orientals have thinner blood vessel structure through their brains. Remember Bruce Lee?
Race is a really poor designation. When adopted into the tribe a person is considered to Cherokee, whether their black, white, or any other color. We are all human beings. There are differences. Light colored eyes are more easily damaged by UV radiation than dark eyes. When was the last time you heard of blue eyed people hating dark eyed people? That has to be learned.
I am personally gratefull for the diversity and differences in people, because we are all people. It’s just that simple. Different doesn’t better than or less than. It means different. We all bleed the same in war. I can see no difference in the blood of Vietnamese ( southeast asian ), whites, or blacks (Americans), Japanese, or First Nations. The blood and pain and treatment is the same. We are all people. That is the objective reality. The problem is relative reality which is where truth is twisted to cause reality to appear to prove something someone wants to prove.
It’s really a matter of integrity. A person of integrity doesn’t have to distort truth to support their purposes.

Believe me. I can hate as well as anyone but I need a better reason than someone looks different than me. I try to hate only the things God hates. But prejudice is stupid. The very word tells you that:
pre= prior, before. And judice= judgement. Actually judging before you know anything about (as pertains to this discussion) a person or “race”.
I don’t know what God would do as His ways are higher than mine and His thoughts I could not fathom if I knew them. What I believe is that each person is tasked with, accountable for and will be judged by our choices, decisions, behaviors and actions within the framework/circumstances we live in or encounter. I am what I do when it counts- and we are mostly not cognizant of how much it counts. We are accountable for every idle (in greek that translates to idle, non-productive) word spoken. Ok, there’s my 2 cents worth.

And it has been a fairly informative article but that’s not the point.

What I mean is I came here completely out of I scientific interest/want-to-know and then there are this over sixty comments about racism in society which actually are not at all related to that topic!??

I’ve fought along side southeast asians, blacks, polynesians, japanese, and other “races and skin color”. At times I saved some of their lives and some of them saved mine.
The words of Colonel Hal Moore ( in command of the newly reformed 7 Cavalry which engaged North Vietnamese regulars for the 1st time in Vietnam ) are rather eloquent concerning this subject:
“Look around you. In the Seventh Cavalry, we got a captain from the Ukraine. Another from Puerto Rico. We’ve got Japanese, Chinese, blacks, Hispanics, Cherokee Indians, Jews and gentiles —all Americans.
Now, here in the States, some men in this unit may experience discrimination because of race or creed. But for you and me now, all that is gone. We’re moving into the Valley of the Shadow of Death, where you will watch the back of the man next to you, as he will watch yours. And you won’t care what color he is or by what name he calls God. They say we’re leaving home. We’re going to what home was always supposed to be.
I can’t promise that I will bring you all home alive. But this I swear before you and before Almighty God: that when we go into battle, I will be the first to set foot on the field, and I will be the last to step off. And I will leave no one behind. Dead or alive, we will all come home together.”

Also… this a social construct too?:

http://www.targetmap.com/viewer.aspx?reportId=4923

I’m not really sure what the big deal is. Yes, you are black / white / Asian, because you were born that way and are that way. Yes, it’s in your genes. No, two black people can’t have a white baby or an Asian baby, nor can two white people have a black baby or an Asian baby, nor can two Asian people have a black baby or a white baby. Shocking, right??

Anyway, let’s all move onto something more productive, like figuring out how to turn the economy around, rather than trying to convince one another to stop paying attention to what your senses are telling you, after all, your eyes are wrong and race is all an illusion!

It isn’t, and we are genetically distinct. Yet, we’re all still the same species. It’s going to be okay, trust me.

(76) colour of water says:

Hostile climates may have shaped the Caucasian. We can all accept that humans first inhabited the areas closest to the equator. The environment would have sustained life more than frigid temperatures would. There was an abundance of light, warmth and water. There were animals they could hunt for food and luxuriant growth of vegetation. It made them unhesitant to leave the equatorial environment. Then an albino was born, and they couldn’t understand why. They were superstitious and afraid, and must have thought their offspring would bring bad luck to the tribe. Perhaps the harvest would be meager, the river would rise and flood their settlement, or the strong winds would return. So they banished the strange child with the white skin. Driven from the settlement and from every other village they approached, these exiles kept moving northward, out of the habitable zones into cooler climes where they would not be threatened by the savannah dwellers, and where the sun did not torment them. In time these melanin-deprived ones further adapted to their environment, their noses, eyes and lips — even their clipped speech protected them from the harsh conditions they encountered. They became more innovative, more inventive than those they left behind on the savannah, for they had to survive. Survival was tougher in a climate where they spent months with very short days and long nights, where food was scarce in the cold winter months and light was short-lived. THey learned how to store food after observing the seasons, knew some animals hibernated and that vegetation would die. As he struggled to survive the white man thus became the explorer, the pioneer, the strategist, the plunderer, while those remaining on the savannah continued to benefit from nature’s bounty.
There is no superior or inferior race. Our cultures and values have only been shaped by our environment and the skills we needed to hone in order to survive.

Human beings have minds in order to think their own thoughts and make their own decisions, not to blindly follow the lead of others and poorly researched, pseudo scientific theories that would not fare at all well in a scientific enquiry conducted by scientists of any color.

Yes I’m sure a series of mutations created white skin. Dark skinned people get their vitamin d from the sun. When people migrated to colder climates they started getting their vitamin d from milk which is why white people are less likely to be lactose intolerant than others. once they no longer needed so much sun away went the darker skin. Black people have white skinned babies sometimes. This is not albinism but a fluke (mutation). These people would not have faired well in africa but would have thrived among these milk drinking people. Slowly this recessive pale skin gene took hold. I can’t believe all of the rediculous comments here. Albinism? Mad scientists? Groups of persecuted pale africans fleeing from crazed darkies? Wow. whatever race these commenters are they’re certainly the shallow end of the gene pool.

Vitamin D was first isolated from tuna fish oil in 1936, and synthesized in 1952. It wasn’t added to milk until FDA approval but I don’t recall the date. As a kid milk didn’t have it. All humans make enough vit D through 15 minutes of full body skin exposure to the sun daily and it is the healthier highly bioavailable D-3 the skin makes. As for the rest of your comment I couldn’t agree with you more. I don’t care why anyone has whatever skin color they have. We’re all people. Good to see another voice of reason drop in here.

Vitamin D was first isolated from tuna fish oil in 1936, and synthesized in 1952. It was some years later added to milk. The reason so many people are lactose intolerant is in the processing of our food. Our food quality is so poor Tony Blair wouldn’t let the food in England that Bush sent to help out when they had to kill the cattle infected with BSE. All human skin makes all the vitamin D required by humans with 15 min of full body exposure to the sun or somewhat longer if not fully exposed. As for the rest of your post I couldn’t agree with you more.

the problem in this article, it does lay on the coloring the skin that been effected saying human all came from Africa basiclly all been brown dark black skin , and developed a kind of mutation , thats the wrong basic , true the skin color change but race absolutely not , if you take African group put them in europe for a thousand year ofcourse their skin will turn to white BUT the geometry of their faces and the anatomy of their body remain the same thats a race you cant change , the reason of having a dna similar between those who in africa and other countries over the world is because the mix been done by sexual activities and having kids in more than kind of race same like rabbits, back then they used to have many kids a 10 or 12 kids from other kind of races so obviously the mix is very understood , other thing i dont see anyone do relay on is if you take a place and examine the animals lived in and compare them to human lives in same area , i recommend you look for Japan as example , look for their animals and see how they look and how they behave and look at Japanese people and you’ll see the id and race , you dont relay on color of skin or even DNA test to figure if there is a race or not

History books tell us it was about coffee beans, ivory, chocolate, cotton and hemp, but those all came secondary to the main goal, which was to save a genetically inept family of people. Don’t believe me? Then, ask yourself, if they wanted the Natives’ land so bad, why didn’t they just finish the job and kill them ALL off? Why, instead, did they make it a point to assimilate them, tearing families apart and marrying off tribe members to white men and women? What the hell is that about? Where they not mistaken for ‘gods’? Is that not what our history books tell us? If the Europeans were truly gods, then why ever would they willfully choose to bare offspring (at times, exclusively) to heathens, savages, and slaves? Pure bloods? Really?

I will tell you why slave masters and colonialist were so eager to procreate outside of their genetic colony. They came to the Americas, and they also knew of the motherland (afrika), in these two places, they saw a people that were healthy, free from insecurity, strong, and, above all, BEAUTIFUL. Today, in America, thankfully and unfortunately, many of us are the product of this colonial takeover which remains a successfully ongoing breeding program. As offsprings of the Conquistadors, Explorers, and Colonialists who hoped for genetic prosperity out of their familial ties, we stand healthier, wiser, and more beautiful than the destroyers we came from. It is up to us to wake up to the reality that most americans are mixed with other races FOR A REASON.

(87) Ariel D'Lvch says:

The Dark Ages, the bubonic plague, the black death, famines, wars, all of this that was happening in Europe was the result of living a life against The Law of Nature. Look at the world around you, very little has changed in terms of the fact that we citizens of the ‘developed’ world are still putting ourselves in boxes (read, ‘My Ishmael’ by Daniel Quinn). You live in a box, you waste in the box, you eat from the box, you drink from the box, you die from the box. Now consider this, if there were a member in a tribe that was born noticeably and severely ill, then, by sexual selection alone, they would be genetically excommunicated because no one would want to see their offspring bare the fruit of the ill-bodied parent. Now, if that sick person happens to find someone that is just as ill as they are, and they decide to have sex because they are so deprived of it, chances are, these two are likely to produce offspring with a high chance of receiving or passing on the recessive trait defect. Again, when the offspring of the ill parents enters the age of reproduction, no one will want to have sex with them, so, the offspring may turn to incest to fulfill a biological urgency/desire. This is one way that mutations can occur and fester, through a kind of no-way-out incest scenario.

October 20, 2012 at 10:10 pm
(88) Ariel D'Lvch says:

Another way that incest could happen, is if a member of the tribe is born with a visually noticeable defect that makes them stand out from the other members and lets say that this mutation is praised by the people in some way. The loins of this now ‘special’ tribe-member would be guarded in the hopes of finding another worthy enough, or alike, having the same condition. This individual may be chosen to procreate with the strongest member of the tribe, one with status, or next in line for marriage. Attempts to reproduce a child that would carry the same mutation would probably lead to the birth of many children, and all would only carry the recessive trait, but none would display the mutation. This is where an ancestral relationship may take place. They may see the member of this tribe as Godlike, and that no taboos would apply, so inbreeding may take place, and when offspring is born from the act, and the offspring is found to carry the genetic mutation that gave the first member God-like status, then the act of incest would be considered shined upon among the, now, royal family.

In both cases mutations, rather worshipped or shunned, led to inbreeding and in one case, a misinterpreted Eugenics movement. So, reconsider the two scenarios I have just laid out, and replace the generalized label of ‘genetic mutation’ with ALBINISM instead (you could also replace with Biblical Leprosy, which is now known to be Vertiligo).

October 20, 2012 at 10:11 pm
(89) Ariel D'Lvch says:

There are always two sides to a coin, but in this case, as far as lack of melanin goes, I could see both scenarios playing out, where albinos were worshipped OR where albinos were shunned, the end result for both situations being that albinos began interbreeding with themselves. In time, maybe as an act of pity, or as a chance to have ‘one night with the king’ people with melanin began to procreate with the genetic defects which gave them partial albinism, just enough melanin to no go completely lobster while in the sun. The facial features of the inbred albinos changed drastically, their lips thinned (common among people missing a chromosome or genetic material), their bone structure thinned becoming more fragile, and their hair became stringy straight (down syndrome). These first defects must have been a horrid sight to see, they may have raped or tricked healthy humans into procreating with them because they sensed that something was wrong with their bodies, they were insecure because they knew deep down that they were incomplete, which fueled the urge to seek gratification outside of themselves.

Look again at the world around you. Society wants us to put everything in a box, to make it all clear cut, white is caucasian, black is negroid, and this is where we fail tremendously. What does it mean to truly be pureblooded? I’d say, it means to be without incest. To be honest, I don’t know if I have ever seen someone who was not mixed with albino-gene-pool blood. Not in the states at least. Aboriginals and other melanese peoples with naturally blonde/red hair and dark brown skin, they may be the descendants of the so called atlantis, the pre-delluvian times, or they could all be inbred too, think about it, after all, they are living on an island.

So is albinism a good thing or a bad thing? Is inbreeding a good thing or a bad thing? It might start off looking a bit off, as to be expected but in time, one can grow to appreciate the beauty.

(90) Ariel D'Lvch says:

There is a physical beauty, that is now centralized on sex, we are programmed to seek out the vulnerable genetically bottlenecked, this is what makes us human. Black people, asian people, native people, indian people, and white people can all make albinos, but can you name any non-dark skinned non-curly haired person giving birth to someone with Kemetic (pan-afro) features? NO, you don’t hear of that do you? Why is that? If to be BLACK/NEGROID/AFRIKAN/KEMETIC is a genetic defect, and defects happen to any and everyone, if kids are born with debilitating diseased like turner syndrome, down syndrome, spina bifida, then WHY aren’t black babies being born to caucasoid-asian people? Set aside your fears and think with an open mind.

October 20, 2012 at 10:28 pm
(91) Ariel D'Lvch says:

But what is beauty, really? There was a time when mates were selected by smell alone, pheromones. If both parties had compatible scents, this was generally the start of courtship and however that played out, would be between the two engaged in the ritual.

Now, in these times, beauty means painting lab made chemicals on your face, shaving purposeful body hair, and covering sensitive areas with scent masking toxic waste (deodorant) in the attempt to smell ‘fresh’. I remember when smelling ‘fresh’ referred to the volume of pheromones emitted.

We have reduced ourselves to look like the inbred populace. The inbreds seek to control the world around them, because they cannot control themselves. What we inbreds need to do is focus on healing ourselves and the world around us. Things have got to change. We cannot go on living this way.

(92) Ariel D'Lvch says:

I am also tired of people saying that pale skinned- melanin deficient humans are more fit for arctic, snow covered regions. This could not be further from the truth!!! Ever heard of SNOW BURN? Snow burn is actually far worse than sun burn because the snow acts a sun shield reflecting UV rays which in turn causes them to bounce back off of the ground an engulf anything on the surface. THE TRUTH is that melanin rich skin works best at absorbing the sun’s rays and converting it to vitamin D. Even modern science states that the ice age blocked off europe access to asia and africa which forced these trapped people to start inbreeding. Think about it, if we are wonderfully an fearfully made, children of the cosmos, then why would we ever depend on something else that does not share the same DNA as us (Cows, goats, sheep, yaks) to give us the Vitamin D our bodies SHOULD BE producing? Dependancy does not sound like a golden ratio to me.

I’m radical though, I don’t even believe we should be eating food, so let the haters hate, but, if in 25,000 years we are all white, bald, malnourished, skinny, have big heads, and smart enough to build a time machine to stop us now from letting the future happen, then I will know I was right about inbreeding.

Peace, Love, and DON’T DROP THE BOMB EVER AGAIN!

Snowburn? I believe you are refering to snow blindness which results from conditions you stated. In colder climates more clothing is worn so less skin is exposed and what skin is exposed is generally for a shorter duration. Having spent much time in the north I never found that a problem.
Anyway, like I previously stated: who cares besides a scientist? People are people and that’s really all that’s important. At least as far as I’m concerned.

Actually race is a genetic reality, not a social contruct. How do you explain scientist being able to determine someones race by their DNA?

The “more differences within than between” argument is one of the most idioc statements i have even heard.

There are more genetic differences with dog breeds breeds than between, does that mean that breeds are an illusion.

The hieght of men has more differences within men than between the average height of men and women, does that mean that their is no difference?

I mean really maybe a middle schooler might be fooled by this garbage.

(96) James says:

EXCUSE ME, but your falling for the extremely liberal progressive view held by some scientists.

All one has to do is look at a Black person with white makeup on or vise versa to see it is NOT just about skin color. The races have very different facial, hair, and body features. Not to mention differences in intelligence, diseases, abilities.

There isnt a single sane person who believes white skinned people are faster than blacks.(total population) There isnt a single sane person who believes blacks(total population) are smarter than whites. That Asians are not more nimble with higher dexterity than blacks or whites. Thats blacks have superior agility and Jews have superior spatial intelligence.

Dont buy the lie just to advance some dream of racial harmony. The truth is the truth regardless of our wishes. Its seems to me that God allowed the races to develop in order to give different gifts to each type in order for all to be one piece of the puzzle so we would need eachother.

Racial tensions are about nothing more than majority minority dynamics–they have noting to do with skin color. Today we see a black race in america who is highly paranoid and easily manipulated into thinking everyone is against them which clearly shows if they were the majority they would no different than whites were in the past. Africa has not produced many stable societies itself and if they can accept they are no better than the majority it would go a long way toward better attitudes.

The minority, regardless of skin color, in every single culture on earth are going to be overwhelmed simply by strength in numbers. It is a math problem in that sense. Childish, and poorly thought out theories are what plagues any progress into seeing the world as it truly is– instead of what our own personal biases want to replace reality with.

So what if it’s scientifically discovered that races are inherently different? (which they are), different doesn’t mean better, and I hate how people are so afraid to mix race and science together, race is real, so why is it considered so wrong to study it? For some reason today it seems that if someone wants to study race, or says it is significant in some way, people throw up their hands and seem to say in a way “oh you are a Nazi now and want to kill all the other races besides your own!” NO, you are a fool if you think this, not everyone interested in race wants a genocide, they just want to learn more, people should stop being so afraid of this…

There seems to be a lot of finger pointing going on here. It is natural to be defensive when your “race” is being condemned.

God made us all…Black, White, Asian, Indian, etc.
Are you saying that God is imperfect for making an imperfect people? God has made us all to His liking…not yours or mine! We do not know why he created us with these differences but I do know that He wanted us all to get along, to get to know one another, and to rejoice in each other.

I was in a curious mood, and decided to do some google searches as I am a proud blue eyed, blonde haired individual, and thought that learning about some ancestry, and genetic diversity would be interesting. What I got was a mountain of immaturity, racism, bigotry, and misinformation. Blacks and whites are quite different. To say that we aren’t is simply ridiculous.

Hardcore liberals would like to toss this veil over everything, and make race seem nonexistent, which sounds good, but it will never work. We need to use our special traits/abilities to work together, and stop mindlessly attacking each other. For Earth’s most intelligent species, we’re pretty stupid. Yes, on average whites are intellectually more advanced, blacks are more physically gifted. Why is this the focal point of everything? It’s a simple observation, not an opinion.

Blacks almost always have black hair and black/dark brown eyes. Whites vary substantially. They can have green eyes, blue eyes, brown eyes, hazel (multicolored) eyes, and even 2 separate colors, which I know is a defect known as heterochromia. Blacks tend to have thick matted hair, whites tend to have straighter, thinner hair. Blacks tend have a wide nose, whites tend to have a narrow nose, blacks tend to have large lips, whites vary, but tend to have thin/medium sized lips. These are all simple observations, we are genetically different, period. I am an 18 year old High School senior, who will most likely not graduate this year due to my prior laziness, and even I can figure this out.

I’m mexican and based in my ancestry I am 70% white and 30% native aprox. And I believe the existence of different races and skin colors means that humans are complex species. One capable of changing to adjust to any environment and situation.
The different races are proof of how great humans are, and I appreciate that.
Is it so difficult to understand that someone looks different for adaptive and environmental reasons? But that beyond that we are the same?
All humans have been savages who rampaged and destroyed weaker civilizations. None of us is innocent, no matter what blood.
The white race prospered because the resources they had. But overall all the races are more or less equally intelligent.
The Asians invented paper, ink, print and gun powder.
Egypt had the first great civilization, they were black.
Amerindians discovered astrology, created symmetrical pyramids without conventional math.
The Aztecs were the first civilization that had daily baths and had mandatory education for everyone, even for the slaves.
And we know what the white race did over time. But don’t say they did everything themselves, the pinnacle of their progress was brought by their ingenious idea of global trading and combining things to improve.
My point being, we are the same with few differences there and there. We are cousins, don’t let old history take away that.
Lets unite and progress together.
After all, the white race tried to combine to improve inventions, maybe all the races joining and combining might bring something better.

Homo Sapien Sapien )full cerebral people of today ) began in tbe area we now call Tanzania and Kenya about 150,000 years ago — they moved to different areas of this planet and due to the elements ( ice ages) caused a genetic defect which caused their loss of melanin –these poor Africans were stuck — they had to develop a certain aggressive attitude toward the limited resources surrounding them and an attitude of barbarism –if others had something they wanted — In Africa the civilizations developed because there was no need for this barbarism since resources were so plentiful — so yes –there is a cultural difference between the Africans that got stuck in the ice and the Africans who were able to create civilization —– hopefully they will realize there is no longer a need to continue with the destruction of this beautiful planet and their former selves –brown and black people ) to acquire moreand more resources – when you look at New Zealand and Australia it is extremely evident — peace

What I’m about to point out is only for the intelligent people reading this, if you don’t have a brain-please stop here.
A lot of the comments I read seem like their coming from confused uneducated seemingly stupid, or purposely absurd clowns attempting to say that any species on the Earth, that is separated by distance, evolved in the same way and adapted the same characteristics, over hundreds, possibly thousands of generations-ARE YOU COMPLETELY MAD?
I’m sorry, by the mere instincts of having an inkling of any intelligence, I would have to say that’s impossible. Between how many islands, did Darwin find a whole range of different intelligent modifications to food gathering and young bearing and adaptations, disabilities, and extinct causing behaviors between finches? The colors, genes, and races around the globe are at different levels in the per capita intelligence and adaptability, although in the last 20 or 30 years there has been a huge migration to intermix the races, possibly only in America can it be said that the races appear similar, although there are obvious places that distinct races gather where the overall intelligence of a race becomes very apparent.
The world is not a place of equality. The world is a place of great inequality-I’m not bringing you down to my level to believe it’s true-I’m waking you up to the reality of what actually is true, so you can stop living in your fantasy that your as good as everybody else, cause there’s always somebody better, but there’s always a whole lotta people who are worse.

As for NoHope, since you’ve admitted to being lazy in your high school studies, you should perhaps either read more about Africa or visit all plains of it next summer. Africans have diverse features; it’s how they even discriminate amongst other African tribes; can we please stop hyping the stereotype that “All Blacks Have One Look.” Indeed, humanity did supposedly begin here, and it’s for that reason the region is so diverse.

My current theory is that the white europeans were the last major genetic change in evolution in humankind. Also there seems to be a developing link, although small, between Neanderthal man and Cro-magnon man. That does not mean the white race is superior by any means, but it does make us different from all other races over at least the last 50,000 years. It seems that all other races and cultures are encouraged to celebrate their differences with the exception of the white race. Why Is That? I feel that we as a caucasian race, should have every right to protect and preserve our racial identity from extenction, just as any other race or culture should.
I am not in favor of full-blown multi-culturalism being forced on us, …as I feel it is only directed towards the White Culture !

People who argue that skin color is only skin deep don’t quite under stand what race means. Skin color is only a single gene that affects race, and there is an abundance of genes that set races apart.

As a child I picked up some common stereotypes of Africans. I noticed that although the Africans in my class that went to the same school as I do and is taught the same material, still continued to earn lower grades than I. Its easy to blame this kind of thing on conformity to the stereotypes that are displayed to a child at a young age, but in this case it was not. I went to a strict Catholic school where all students were strictly lectured to refrain from any name calling or teasing. To this day I believe that Blacks and Whites have distinct differences both positive and negative that sets them. Continued….

January 30, 2013 at 12:34 am
(116) Ryan says:

The only real evidence you can attribute to this theory is if you can connect the environment that Europeans had to evolve to and their modern day characteristics. Whites continue to dominate the world through language, media, economics, and politics. This shows more about the white race than anything else. The real feature of whites that set them apart from other races and cultures is their will to conquer and defeat. Think about it, The Roman Empire was the most powerful and influential empire of all time. Also Catholicism which is the world’s most popular religion, was made popular throughout the world due to European’s will to convert others into Catholics. …..Continued
The reason Europeans evolved differently is because in the new environment they faced while migrating, it was important to know how to build complex structures to escape the cold. There could of been countless situations where needing the desire for
conquest was necessary, food is low in the north, especially in the winter months. Situations like these would definantly require some brutal techniques. I’m not saying whites are superior, but saying we have different talents, blacks are far better at many things. A few of them are; basketball, football, making music (debatable), and drawing.

It’s articles like this I think racists like Hal Turner and John McCain and Sarah Palin should read. White people DESCENDED from us. Even after our people were enslaved and relocated to colder climates to the north we are STILL THE SAME as we have been for thousands of years, implying our genetic superiority for those that still refuse to face facts THERE IS THE PROOF that African-Americans the world over are superior. The only reason for the pitiful living conditions of Blacks in America is b/c of prejudice and discrimination we still face today. White Police officers profile black citizens for arrest. 90% of false rape accusations are leveled at black men by white women being coerced by yet more white men and black schools are underfunded and understaffed with over crowding in the school forcing our children to drop out while the white school receive more funding and more qulified teachers. Our fellow African-Americans in Europe hardly face as many difficulties b/c racism has been outlawed over there as opposed to becoming a time honored institution like it is the united states.

Neanderthals were monkeys and it is inter-racial relations between white people and neanderthals that caused them to mutate into the modern white man whereas african-americans have remained 100% human and pure. If white students were taught this fact and studied our culture (from which white, asian, arab and indian culture stemmed) they would understand that their inherent racism is foolish and ignorant and African-American people globally wouldn’t be denied employment and unconstitutionally incarcerated in the united states.

Melanin is not black and melanin deficient is not white. These linguistic distortions are from a connotative value judgement that seeks to impart a hierarchy. The human mind navigates through a mirad of experiences by noticing difference. Attaching a value to one or both items or characteristics as a comparison of the “difference” is judgement. Thinking that we have enough information to make such judgements is arrogant, ignorant, prideful and considered by some, a sin. I am that I am. A melanin deficient mutant.

(119) MoonDragn says:

I think part of the problem is the definition of a race. The descriptions like color are mutations that differ in small parts of the dna while there are more similar traits than differences between humans from the different regions. There are also mutations that are shared across the different groups. The definition of a race then becomes very muddied.

It really comes down to how you group the different people together. It really becomes subjective in a sense. So yes there are differences between humans, but the differences can be grouped in so many different ways that to simply divide people up by color is just being ignorant.

Why are there no primitive ‘WHITE’ people living like savages in trees and deserts like African, South American tribes, …. The vast majority of naturally occurring ‘White’ mummies around the world pre-date Chinese, Indian, India, Mexico, Peruvian cultures. The first ‘White’ people in N. America were here 2000 years before native Americans came from Asia. Today Native Americans have the advantage to claim that any mummy found in America is by law rightfully their own. What happened to the ‘Red Haired’ giants that the Native Americans trapped in a cave and ‘BURNED’ alive.

I would like to point out that there is more than one race of ‘White People’ as you call it.

One thing to remember people, most of you base your opinions on what you have heard/read and haven’t actually found definitive proof that one race is distinctly different from other based on mutations, migration etc

Origin of Whites:

Firstly there is no proof migration caused whites migrated to Eurasia. The most likely “theory” is that BLACKS migrated to Eurasia and adapted over time into white people. If you understand what a gene pool is then you will know that the less a gene is present in a gene pool, the lower the chance of offspring being born with that gene. If every child in a generation lacks the gene then its LOST from the gene pool. At some point, dark skin was a disadvantage for BLACKS in Eurasia and it was bred out. You may think “well how can an entire gene simply disappear? Well considering that the population of humans was very low at that era worldwide, and the Eurasian settlers had to tame a harsh environment, then it stands to reason that any gene that gave a disadvantage would find itself lost to the populace. Black people have a higher genetic diversity than whites which means whites entered a ‘bottleneck(s)’ stage genetically, greatly reducing or even removing certain genes from their genepools. But like I said it’s only theory.

February 24, 2013 at 2:23 pm
(123) Nameless says:

What is a race?

There is no real answer to this question (genetic or otherwise). This is due to human thinking of basing race solely on physical appearance. A white man is described as typically pale skinned with a variety of thin hair and eye colours and thinner lips than black people who ALL have dark thick curly hair, dark skin and brown eyes. Asians (someone from India, Pakistan etc) ALL have dark straight thick hair, dark skin but with the facial features of a white man. SO lets compare these three “races”. It looks like asians are a hybrid of the two but society describes them as a distinct race. They have the dark skin and dark thick hair of blacks but the facial features and hair straightness of whites. Before you say Asians have “brown skin” consider that black peoples skin isn’t black, the dark skin of africans varies considerably where in many areas they are lighter than asians. On the other hand many asians are darker than blacks (e.g, Sri Lankans).

February 24, 2013 at 2:30 pm
(124) Nameless says:

Genetics:

So this all makes me wonder. If the “traits” of one race is shared between other races. I.e. if asians have many “white” traits then why does hair thickness and skin colour seperate them? The same holds true for asians and blacks. And what about orientals? They have a unique genetic expression for eye shape but their skin tone is that of whites while their hair is that of asians and their noses are similar to blacks. Ultimately it seems that every race shares “racial traits” with at least one other “race”. So what “trait” makes a black person black? is it his skin? Well asians have that same trait too. And what about wider noses? Are orientals actually pale skinned blacks? Sounds ridiculous right?

February 24, 2013 at 2:37 pm
(125) Nameless says:

So what is a race really?

So I’ve shown you that physically one cannot say because person A has dark skin then he is black because Person B who is from India must be regarded as bkack. Well you could argue that race is more of a combination of features. Some are shared with others but a race has it’s own distinct “set of features”. Then with this argument there are only two “true races” which are whites and blacks because each of these two races has trait(s) that are never found in the other. e.g. thick curly hair vs blue eyes. However the traits of the other races are ALL shared with blacks and whites to some degree.

February 24, 2013 at 2:56 pm
(126) Nameless says:

Things you can’t see:

Ok let’s move on from physical characteristics of a race. What about the things you cannot see like intelligence? Let’s not get all Lamerick here. Building guns, ships and massive skyscrapers doesn’t add to the intelligence of a population. While blacks were chilling in the warm sun whites had to toil, prepare for winters, build strong stone homes and construct steam engines. The reason for this is? Naturally Neccessity. Man WANTS many things but NEEDS fewer things. Blacks had plentiful food, warmth and land. Because of this, blacks were content. Whites had to work harder to get the same levels of needs that blacks enjoyed. This led to improving technologies to make achieving this easier. Bigger boats and trade for food and clothings. Mining and forging for building sturdy weather bearing buildings and if they wanted their neighbours stuff? War weapons to aid them. Whites may seem more intellgent because they acheived many innovations over the ages but in reality they simply adapted and as the tool users we are they shaped their surroundings to benefit themselves. Blacks were not too dumb to invent a gun for example to kill their neighbours and take their lands, they had enough already. Im not saying blacks didnt engage in warfare, but when they did it was typically for different reasons that NEEDS.

February 24, 2013 at 3:22 pm
(127) Nameless says:

SO history aside? What about modern days? There are skyscrapers and tanks in africa now. Sure they are american built but does that mean blacks are too dumb to make them themselves? Not in the slightest. It took many many years for the white man to develop a simple musket into an AK47. However in the course of a few years a black man can learn how to make an AK47. He doesn’t have to invent the musket and wait over a century.

Phew, this was a long rant. Sorry for the spelling errors.

(129) Cross bred says:

I figure we wouldn’t be able to breed with each other if we weren’t the same. From what history has taught me who ever holds the powerstone is the supreme ruler of the other tribes and of the world unless it is dropped and picked up by another tribe. Examples are brown skin humans rule supreme they are called Romans or Italians, they enslave they white humans, example Germans, Brits, French and any other colour or culture that stands in their way. But the romans drop the powerstone and the whites pick it up and not learning anything from being enslaved themselves they enslave the black humans, until the white human dropped the ball and someone else picks it up maybe the Asians since the Mongols could have conquered Europe but turned back because of rituals, so supremacy is as simple as someone dropping the ball and someone else picks it up. The way I see it if there was such a thing as race and supremacy, there would have been a race that was supreme from the beginning and stayed that way till the present day which isn’t the case. So humans are humans who fight for power and because I don’t see intelligence in war we’ve got a long way to go before we are trulyan intelligent being.

(143) Dr. J Garrett says:

Comments started out politically correct then diverged to stupidity with a large amount of ignorance.

The known facts, yet untold to the masses as it would cause panic and war beyond a scale known to mankind, is that the ancient “Gods” brought fair skinned humans to rule over a planet of inferior humanoids. These humanoids were not much more intelligent than an average monkey.

Just as AIDS was a mutated virus caused by some African having sex with a primate, the black species was born by these fair skinned aliens having sex with primate humanoids.

As time has progressed, you can still see the end results with any form of intelligence testing performed and the results are plainly obvious to the average person. The fairer the skin color, regardless of species, the higher the results, as a group. There will be variances within the species grouping.

Blacks have superior strength and physical skills which harken from their ancestors as primitive humanoids living off the land while fleeing preditors.

Just as a Collie or Doberman Pincher is considered two species of dogs, there would be different species of humans. Far from politically correct, but true. Both dogs can interbreed and have puppies, just as mixed species of humans do. The term a person would use for this mixed human is “mulotto”.

What I have stated is not politically correct and many will find these comments funny or stupid or ignorant, let’s not forget racists, or just plain asinine. Regardless, these are the facts and buried in history which will never be taught to the masses. Go forth and research, you too will discover the truth.

Out of all these comments on person that I saw mention the bible, and what it has to say about race, and culture. As a little person I was taught that everybody in the bible was white, and blacks were never promised a life but slavery. So now tell me about racism. Some one stated that if it weren’t for whites nobody would excel. Whites have stolen more identities that we can say. Whites have created more chaos than peace or purity. This is why it is so important for Blacks to remember and know about their race. Why in fact that it was a curse to be white as it truly states in the real bible read it. (leprosy to you and your seed.) and you can make that in to a lie I am sure. I do not think that any culture on this earth would make a superior culture whether black, white, or Asian.

I can’t believe that so many people will spend so much time arguing about something that they have no prayer of proving either way. All people are different, and they’re different for a reason based on where they have lived most of their existence. Hot, cold, sunny, cloudy, it really doesn’t matter. Just give some serious thought to something as simple as skin color and how it generally coincides with where that group appears to have originated. That’s the only reason that we think we have it all figured out, even when we really don’t. For instance, people living in the tropics never spent the time to develop complex housing to keep themselves warm during the cold winter months; they never had to. Humans have always done what was needed based on where they live. It’s a simple as that. Thousands of years ago you couldn’t move your family across one continent, or to another, overnight, you did it very gradually. Maybe based of food supply, or crowded conditions. Who really knows for sure. Your time was spent just feeding and caring for the family. Today the human race is mixed throughout most of the world. We are able to do that more easily the past hundred years, or so, to get a new job, or move to a climate we like better. Sometimes it wasn’t done by choice. Evolutionary biology has really lost its significance in the discussion of human differences. All the arguments are just time less well spent. Most of our basic differences today are of our own choosing. IMO

Hi I am Dr Venter, I was the one who made the claim in 2004 that all humans were 99.9% genetically similar. This was a mistake. I revisited my assessment after studying my own DNA and realized our methodology had errors, and there were actually startling differences.

The revised estimate i currently have is 99.5-99.3% similar. Please stop quoting my 99.9% number it brings a lot of embarrassment to me and my colleges keep email me these articles as jokes. I know they are just joshing, but I would like to put the issue to rest. Please contact me if you have any further questions, below is the study that clears things up. Thanks.

http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.0050254

“We have generated an independently assembled diploid human genomic DNA sequence from both chromosomes of a single individual (J. Craig Venter). Our approach, based on whole-genome shotgun sequencing and using enhanced genome assembly strategies and software, generated an assembled genome over half of which is represented in large diploid segments (>200 kilobases), enabling study of the diploid genome. Comparison with previous reference human genome sequences, which were composites comprising multiple humans, revealed that the majority of genomic alterations are the well-studied class of variants based on single nucleotides (SNPs). However, the results also reveal that lesser-studied genomic variants, insertions and deletions, while comprising a minority (22%) of genomic variation events, actually account for almost 74% of variant nucleotides. Inclusion of insertion and deletion genetic variation into our estimates of interchromosomal difference reveals that only 99.5% similarity exists between the two chromosomal copies of an individual and that genetic variation”

Extinction takes you to the year 2053 where people of color now outnumber whites. The country has been headed in that direction for over 40 years. People of color occupy official positions in every capacity from the President of the United States down to the city Mayors. The fear in the air is palpable and there are some who believe this country is headed for a new civil war. Whites are now experiencing some of the same prejudices that had been placed on people of color for over 400 years. To complicate matters, a new drug has been developed referred to as “enhancement” that changes the pigmentation of the skin. Taken by whites, this drug will darken their skin color and afford them the opportunity to blend in with the changing environment and further their career opportunities. This drug is used by whites from all walks of life, from house wives to lawyers, bankers and even lawmakers. Richard Evans is a successful lawyer who just happens to be white and one of those who see this as an advantage and opportunity. Still others like Paul Carlson who think this will eventually erode the base of his race and lead to their extinction. He and other mysterious figures are determined to see that this never happens … by any means necessary!

Wrong, you are only considering skin color, you must also consider if “black” is the dominate skin color would only be one trait. You also have hair texture and facial feature . There is no similarity in the latter two traits in “white” people. Today if white and black have offspring the offspring will almost always be darker skinned. Yet they will still have the facial and perhaps hair texture of the black parent. Only when several generation of that offspring mating with light skinned or white people will that dark skinned gene be bred out of the person .. Point being whit people are not a product of some”mutation of the black gene. So continue to ask your self of the explanation of how white people arrived to be on the Earth.

The genetic evolution only explains one trait of Caucasians, light skin. The same genetic trait can be found in Asians. It’s not just a trait Caucasians possess necessarily.

(174) Modernist says:

Can everyone stop bickering about colour? Replace every “white,” with the word, “purple.” Replace every, black,” with, “blue.” Do you see how ridiculous every bit of argument sounds? Purple isn’t any better than blue. Blue isn’t any better than purple. In fact, the two are just the same.

Every colour be just as intelligent, or inane; just as wealthy, or poor; just as fast, or slow; just as good, or cruel.

And every colour is a significant part of the rainbow; everyone, no matter your colour, is human.

We love, hate, laugh, cry, think, etc. etc.

What gives anyone the right to think he, or she is better than someone else mentally, physically, socially, or economically because of the shade of his, or her skin?

Nothing; absolutely nothing.

And you’d think after decades of insipid bickering, people would realize that we’re all people: capable of doing exactly what the other person can do.

Stop discrimination, once and for all.

Russian geneticists disprove “Out of Africa” claim
Recent fossil discoveries in central Asia have turned the “out of Africa” theory of human evolution upside down. Now two Russian geneticists show that DNA disproves the theory. There findings were published in Advances in Anthropology. The entire article can be read online. Click Here.

From Advances in Anthropology…

There are, however, four distinct SNPs which present in both Africans and Europeans of haplogroup R1a1, taken the latter as an example. They seem to be the most ancient SNPs, which are defined the alpha-haplogroup (see Figure 3). Tables 1 and 2 illustrate this statement.

The ancestral alleles of the above four SNPs should corre- spond to the alpha haplogroup. All four are mutated in hap- logroup R1a1, and the WTY data show. All four are still ances- tral in the A1 subclade. All other subclades of haplogroup A show various combinations of the SNPs which do not match those in haplogroup R1a1 (see also Table 2).
logroup R1a1, it maintains their ancestral state.

the SLC24A5 creates white skin in europeans but europeans are not teh only white people with this gene middel easterns,north africans, and pakistani have the exacts same gene at about 62-100% which explains why some do have white skin so not all white people are from europe and white people do not orignate in europe they orignate in the middel east about 50,000-60,000ybp then they migrated to europe about 40,000-50,000ybp then teh SLC24a5 gene became dominet but europeans ancestors have had this gene for 60,000years this is amazing news i was shocked to learn it

http://mbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/24/3/710.long
PG. * shows that 62-100% of mid easterns,north africans, and pakistani have the same white skin gene as europeans also they did not get it from inter marriage because they have very little european blood mid easterns have been proven to be very relted to europeans in y DNA and mtDNA lineges and in austomnal DNA this means the common ancestor or europeans and mid easterns had the gene for white skin and some would have been white juts like modern europeans and i am talking 60,000ybp

if u dont belive me look at these austomnal DNA tests which tell u your whole genetic history it shows europeans are very unrelted to east asians

http://dodecad.blogspot.com/

europeans have been white skinned for 25,000-35,000years and some of the first europeans 40,000-60,000ybp would have had teh exact same white skin gene as mod europe

Good article…somethin’ that is goin’ to be hard for a lot of people, especially, those of the pale-skinned race to stomach for a minute or two!

How it first began in the hair texture of the ripe-olive colored black Dravidians. So, it is safe to assume that that “good, straight hair” is a genetic mutation…Hmmm??? Peace…

Caucasians are Russian. If you are Russian, of Russian decent or from the area(s) around Russia then Caucasian is correct. Most Europeans and American whites are of Anglo Saxon decent.

So even as a social construct race and the typical race terms based on colors (Black/African, White/Caucasian, Yellow/Asian, Brown/Spanish aka Mexican) are not only extremely out dated but inaccurate.

To sum it up: You look really stupid when you call a Cuban Black/African, ignorant when you insist a Cambodian is Mexican and dumb when you are a light skinned mutt trying to claim roots in Russian when you came from Europe.

If you have color in you regardless of you not wanting to admit it you come from us. We are different than white people we can produce chemicals they cannot they’re more susceptible to disease and we are talking about naturally not your experiments of injecting Africans with aids or African Americans with syphilis our skin is more healthy and our bones are more dense than theirs which is part of what makes our immune system stronger. White people before you begin to respond out of anger look it up first all men weren’t created equally. Even with Hitler trying to make a super race of white people they were beat by 3 regular black people. White people always are in need of milk because of this deficiency as well. A lot of food products have calcium added to it to help them with their weaker bone structure. I would love to get deeper into this but don’t have the time.

If 5 white women and 5 black women have babies by 1 white man then that equals 5 white babies and 5 black babies. Humanity says both men would have 10 babies with varying complexions. Racism = Stupidity

Children from interracial (white + non-white) relationships can never be white and will never be and/or feel fully accepted by white supremacy. Children from interracial relationships may never feel or be fully loved by their white parent consciously, subconsciously, and/or unconsciously because of white supremacy. Historically, whites that believe that skin color determines race accept their white babies easier or better than accepting their bi racial babies. Humanity or The Human Race accepts babies of all complexions!

Every once in awhile there is a sign of mutation development in the human race. We see these people as freaks even today and the fear runs through our genes that we are no longer needed. I believe we all are but simply put race doesn’t matter. Our skins development shows that our bodies are intelligent enough to even make harsh or rash designs.In recent times height has become a factor for a multitude of reasons do you think there was six foot tall humans during the 1600′s? The reasons our bodies develop is to keep the race alive not one specific race per-say but the human race. Over the years there has been studies conducted to find the answers while multitudes of humans became a huge factor in this world. Closed off minds of any other living beings devouring the planets natural resources it is just disgusting. It is out of fear it is all out of fear how we react t’wards the things we find in life that are different. so what happens to the human with a developed mind. We call him a freak or do we accept him as something more. We are fearful creatures it is in our instinct to survive. All these racist people White, Black, Asian, Indian or what ever you call it are to blind to even see that an evolution is taking place we are evolving. It is only natural sorry I am only six years old but I had to rant because my father and mother are from different races and love them both. so don’t judge me because of my age or what I can do I can do something because of my mind but know this we are changing. All living creatures tend to change to survive.

These lines i write for ALL RACIST CHRISTIANS to know that those who call themselves “CHRISTIANS” but are racist are clearly NOT christians.
The Bible is CLEAR. PAUL states as FACT that we are ONE HUMAN FAMILY or RACE. He says: “God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: for in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring.”
AGAIN every TRUE chritians know that Noah had three sons. IF one was black and another white and another still brown, IT WOULD SIMPLY MEAN THAT THEY ARE BROTHERS!!, that ONE COULD HAVE ANY TYPE OF ETHNIC LOOKING KIDs. ALSO, NOBODY KNOWS what COLOR was NOAH! Meaning he could have been Black, white or whatever looking.!!!!! SO, YOU racist out there that call yourselt christian D’ONT EVER USE this name to hide your hatred and CONFUSE others about TRUE CHRISTIANITY.

PS :Let us all remember that:

“we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” STOP listening to the “Father of lies”.

Race could be a classification of Homo sapien sapiens based loosely on biological variation (hair color and shape, facial bone structure, eye shape/spacing/color, skin color, and other internal systems based on aquired genetics like immune systems), politics, and of course regional culture.

We should not forget that all alleged races are still part of that same sub-species sapien. However, we should not confuse the word race with species. Some would argue that because we are all Homo sapien sapiens, race cannot exist, but race is not synonymous with any purely scientific term.

Message to the Blackman

CHAPTER 55

THE MAKING OF DEVIL

1 You have learned, from the reading of history, that a nation’s permanent success depends on its obedience to Allah. We have seen the white race (devils) in heaven, among the righteous, causing trouble (making mischief and causing bloodshed), until they were discovered.

2 They made trouble for six months, right in heaven, deceiving the ancient original people who were holy. But, when they learned just who was causing the trouble; they, as you have learned, cast the troublemakers out into the worst and poorest part of our planet earth.

3 They were punished by being deprived of divine guidance, for 2,000 years which brought them almost into the family of wild beasts — going upon all fours; eating raw and unseasoned, uncooked food; living in caves and tree tops, climbing and jumping from one tree to the other.

4 Even today, they like climbing and jumping. The monkeys are from them. Before their time, there were no such things as monkeys, apes and swine. Read the Holy Qur-an (Chapter 18) entitled: The Cave. The Holy Qur-an mentioned them as being turned into apes and swine as a divine curse, because of their disbelief in Moses.

Extinction takes you to the year 2053 where people of color now outnumber whites. The country has been headed in that direction for over 40 years. People of color occupy official positions in every capacity from the President of the United States down to the city Mayors. The fear in the air is palpable and there are some who believe this country is headed for a new civil war. Whites are now experiencing some of the same prejudices that had been placed on people of color for over 400 years. To complicate matters, a new drug has been developed referred to as “enhancement” that changes the pigmentation of the skin. Taken by whites, this drug will darken their skin color and afford them the opportunity to blend in with the changing environment and further their career opportunities. This drug is used by whites from all walks of life, from house wives to lawyers, bankers and even lawmakers. Richard Evans is a successful lawyer who just happens to be white and one of those who see this as an advantage and opportunity. Still others like Paul Carlson who think this will eventually erode the base of his race and lead to their extinction. He and other mysterious figures are determined to see that this never happens … by any means necessary!

As for this country, the land was taken away from those who were living here before them. The sad this is that all this was done in the name of freedom but freedom and liberty were taken away from others, including those who lived here before, and those who were taken away from their ancestral land. Those who oppressed others in the name of freedom thought that it was their right to take possession of the land and I believe that some modeled this after Biblical examples of the Israelites being instructed by God to take hold of the promised land. But the problem is, Christian were never instructed to come to this land, and take over the land from others. Christians are taught to respect and love all people, not elevate ourselves above other people or oppress them because they do not believe as we do. We are never taught to force people to believe as we do, but we are to love them and show them the love of Christ for all people! As for those who suggest that blacks leave this country because you feel that they are ruining this country, many many lives have been ruined, even lost when this country was founded and yet you do not seem to want to see this. Blacks were even here on this land even before the Europeans who “discovered” it.

Unfortunately, due to the origins of racism back during the times of Roman usurpation of religion, god, etc., from Africans during their occupation of Black Egypt, we are faced with this nonsense. There’s no such thing as race, all humans are African!!! The differences in color, and other differences, are adaptations, mutations, etc., from the original blue print

Now, the Greeks and Romans, decided to whitewash history. They knew who the African Egyptians were, what they looked like, along with the original jews, arabs, etc., before mutations, and mixing of black with mutation.

Until man accepts the “truth”, we will continue down this negative spiral. It is totally insane. This construct of race was created by those that demelanized in Africa first, and also did the same in Europe to adapt. This is science!!!!!

And they are the true White People although they are the ones with shovel teeth as Yellow-skinned Asians would. They were Nomads.
I am not proud to be White. I was sexually abused, and that’s why I came out with this stigma by mutation, or Evolution. Black People are attracted to me because they know I have their infrastructure with their zygomatic arch, and their orbital fracture. The differences between me and Black People is that my eyes are more wide-set.

(228) Keffek says:

In the text is written that “In fact, scientists posit That All people are roughly 99.5 percent genetically identical.” But we have to remember that between us and chimpanzees the difference is only 1%. If this “small” difference makes us so different about these apes, why we should discard the percentage difference between our DNA’s? The fact that there may be more genetic differences between individuals of the same ethnicity than among white and black and / or yellow should be analyzed on the basis of genetic markers, and not on the quantity as a whole. We do not question when certain human groups systematically win some Olympic competitions. Nobody question when it points out the striking differences between certain “races” of dogs or horses. The biological laws that govern the animals are the same that apply to us.

I keep remembering what I read in the Book of Enoch: Lamech said to his father Methuselah “My wife has given birth to a son who does not look like one of us. He has white skin & hair like that of the Angels.” Methuselah went to his father Enoch who resided with the angels. Enoch told Methuselah that the boy was not tainted by the Angels. He said “He is an Albino. Name him Noah.” *At the Tower of Babel I don’t remember skin color being mentioned just the language. * In Genesis it is mentioned that the ‘Sons of God mated with the women of earth..it wasn’t the sons of Seth it refers to. All through the old testament ‘Sons of God’ referred to Angels. In the new testament Paul uses the term loosely when he states all men can be ‘Sons of God’. like the term ‘fair’. In the old testament it refers to beauty. Now it seems to refer to skin color. (sigh!) People, we debate over frivolous things. You are wonderfully & beautifully made by a loving Creator who loves you unconditionally. No matter how you look..no matter what you have. *The Bible doesn’t contradict itself. Who did Cain marry? Simple. He married one of the females created on the 6th day. Adam was the first man created to carry the seed line leading to Jesus’ birth. He was created to tend the Garden of Eden..but he wasn’t the first man created. Preachers preach to stay in the norm, to be accepted..but they will pay. The Bible says they will. You don’t have to confess to a priest..you can go directly to Jesus. You don’t pray to Mary, the mother. You pray to Jesus, the Son. It doesn’t matter if you say ‘Holy Spirit’ or ‘Holy Ghost’ (A Jehovah witness vehemently chastised me on this.) I told her ‘Holy Spirit’ or ‘Holy Ghost’ it’s all the same to me, but if it makes you feel better I’ll say ‘Holy spirit’.” Don’t sweat the little things. Our best days are behind us..far more terrible things are getting ready to happen. But God says He would keep us from the hour of testing. Do not take the RFID chip.

You are so correct. Genetic mutations are the cornerstone of evolution. You are basically stating that “white” people are more evolved. This would definitely be a correct statement. Thank you black lady!

(231) Charlotte Quevedo says:

I think that anyone who would argue the point that race is just a social construct misses the whole point. Race is a social construct, and a very dangerous, misleading one, because the point is that white people and Asians for that matter are not unique races. They are descendents of African genetic mutations who migrated out of Africa and were isolated for periods of time. So in essence it’s like we are all Africans but no longer are we all born in Africa. To me when it says thatwhite skin was a genetic mutation, that means that white people are black people with a difference in skin tone, so they are the race. This did not just happen years ago. Nigerian couples still have white babies. Albino Africans were also cast out of Africa due to rejection of their skin color. It was seen as a defect. Albino Africans left Africa to escape the harsh treatment and harsh climate conditions. You can only wonder why it is that so many white people to this day have curlier hair than mine and I am…in racial terms “mixed with black and white.” I think that with so much isolation of white skin intermarriage over time you could create a fixed white skin group of people whose features would look quite different than Africans in Africa. Asian ppl thought they were a unique racial group but I watched a youtube video where Asian scientists confirmed in a laboratory that they are direct descendants of Africans.

Refering to (214) Shana/Raya/Jade:
A very prejudicial doctrine handed down by the Supreme Court was written by the Church. This doctrine should be formally denounced for it stated Indian Nations do not have title to their lands, they only have title of occupancy, because they weren’t Christians when the Europeans first got here. That the first Christian Nations to discover an area of heathen and infidel lands has the ultimate dominion over those lands and the absolute title.”
This should go to the Pope and also to the President of the United States to withdraw and renounce this document and to establish a new basis for relationship between indigenous peoples and other peoples of the world.
Manifest Destiny was the result of catholic interference as were the crusades and countless other instances.

Explains a lot! My spiritual teachers instilled in me that superior people have no need to systematically attempt to oppress and suppress those who are supposedly inferior. White people have been on a campaign to destroy the historical existence of every non-white culture since about 5000 BC. Being mutants would provide a somewhat valid explanation for this path of hate, death and destruction! Everywhere the white-man goes, societies are destroyed and millions of innocent people die. Now other races can be blamed too, simply for responding to, and begin subjected to the mutant’s need to prove their superiority over all others. You could say that if there is indeed a Devil in the flesh, it is definitely the white people.

(235) DevinMacGregor says:

Major problem with this article is it assumes only two skin colors, white or brown.

Not all Europeans have the same skin color. Not all Africans have the same skin color. Not all Asians have the same skin color. Some are lighter than others.

Are the Japanese now white people?

Modern Anthropology we are one race, human. We are broken socially into ethnic groups. Your skin color does not denote a single culture.

Race was first used to denote nations of people such as the French race, the German race, the Belgium race. Then came the caucasoid, negroid, mongoloid, etc being said to be the races. Then came saying skin is not a race.

In the US most of us have lost our actual cultural heritage that was distinct for us to this melting pot that just leaves our skin color showing so we divide us incorrectly by skin color.

(236) PRidge says:

Wow! I have read all the comments and after 2 hours of reading I feel the need to post.

1st- There is no “race” that has out evolved the other because if you are within the same age group as a peer, regardless of race, you both have evolved the same length of time. It is only a difference in characteristics/adaptations due to culture or lifestyle over time.

2nd- I have read the analogy of comparing HUMANS to DOGS, which is completely ridiculous. If you knew about dogs you know that all dogs cannot mate with all breeds of dogs. A Great Dane and a chihuahua are both dogs BUT are in different species; find the definition of SPECIES if you don’t believe me.All humans regardless of cultural differences and appearance CAN produce offspring.

3rd – Why do I read people feeling they are intellectually superior based on whatever they post here or the grammar they use. That has nothing to do with IQ, which measures mostly your problem solving ability. If you ask me “whites” are doing a huge favor to “blacks”, the added pressure and strain on the “black” adult far out-weights that of the “white” adult. Therefore, giving the “black” brain more keen adaptive skills and problem solving finesse over time.

4th- As a human species we are made to adapt and survive. Keep infecting Africans with AIDS through evasive means and guess what…They will soon adapt a natural genetic cure to it.

I would like to hear how the skin mutation can account for the average IQ of African Americans being 85 which is lower than any race on the planet!

(238) Alexander says:

Europeans and northern hemisphere Asians are a different species all together, smarter is the key trait. Europeans needed intelligence to survive.

Africans are more physically capable, like monkeys are, they need strength and aggressive violent behavior.

Is it not very obvious today – strong aggressive violent but stupid black people and smart civilized white people.

Turn out that the smart people have almost always ruled the strong people and always will.

White people on here are a little pissed off. The brown people can’t help it if your a$$es are slowly becoming extinct. Since you’re so smart figure this one out; why can’t you produce white (pink) offspring outside your own race? We can always produce black (brown) offspring outside of our race. Since you’re so smart, figure out how this next paragraph … The Census Bureau reported in June 2013 that Deaths of white people outnumbered births for the very first time in US history, the Census Bureau predicts that significant drops in birth rates v death rates will be regular by 2025. That’s right white (pink) boy, your race is dying fast than they can reproduce.

washingtonpost.com/local/white-deaths-outnumber-births-for-first-time/2013/06/13/3bb1017c-d388-11e2-a73e-826d299ff459_story.html

The new 2012 annual census calculated births minus deaths as of July 2012 and saw a decrease of about 12,400 people out of 198 million non-Hispanic whites in the country. Several demographers have pointed out that no other racial group in the US experienced a similar drop. Such a natural decrease within the white population is the first of its kind and was not even observed in the US during wars or Depression. The only thing whites (pink) know how to do is destroy; there is a reason Native Indians called you WHITE DEVILS

February 13, 2014 at 9:59 am
(241) clarkegiven says:

whites (pink) will soon be a minority group and subject to discrimination laws designed to protect minorities which now they are trying to get rid of, go figure. With changing conditions here in the US like interracial marriage and immigration, whites won’t be able to survive in a multicultural environment without separating themselves from the rest of society. I suggest you all watch the movie White Man’s Burden to see where your white (pink) a$$es are headed

February 20, 2014 at 1:16 am
(242) GeorgeWilson says:

Only 20 years after WWII (when the US was over 90% White) the US passed the disastrous immigration act of 1965 which changed the US immigration laws away from Europe and opened the door to the third world. Every White Country is in the same process now and being purposely flooded with non-White immigration. Asian countries will be the greatest beneficiaries as they have a sense of identity and culture as the West ‘goes down the tubes’.

Using White belief of altruism the mass media has led a campaign of White Guilt to psychological warfare against any sense of white group identity. This is evidenced today by many Whites actually applauding the loss of their country through immigration (we stole it from the Indians – more guilt), embracing non-white customs, and generally not having any ethnocentric interest. Many Whites don’t even recognize or identify with their white race. While this same argument could be made for the native people of Briton, Germany, France, etc it is purposely not and the native peoples of Europe are targeted for multiculturalism and extinction by a similar controlled media. At the same time every other race engages in group identity and is encourage to do so by the mass media. This is a deliberate plan and there has been little organized resistance to date. Noting the controlled media and other institutions would use character assassinations (e.g. racist accusation) to stop any resistance.

Conclusion – unless some sort of dramatic event (e.g. economic depression) happens that would cause some rebirth of European Identity and re-draw national borders based on race – the US will cease to be a European based culture and will most likely lose it’s first world and superpower status. Also, a changing of priorities and culture from crass materialism, hyper-individualism, to a more family friendly environment (having more white babies) would need to be encouraged by a responsible government.

February 20, 2014 at 1:28 am
(243) GeorgeWilson says:

clarkegiven – your racist hatred toward the white race is a double edge sword. If the white race goes under like you hope you will not be living in some multiracial utopia. It will be more like a third world country in South America or many US cities in the South West. Also, look at Zimbabwe as another example. Mugabe killed off all the productive Rhodesian White Farmers and the whole country went to hell and people are starving. They went back to the African standard and now require Western aid to feed them now. Also, the the White race is not dead yet and our history shows once a fire is lit we can change our situation very easily.

February 24, 2014 at 8:42 pm
(244) Soaren says:

White people are a “mutation”. It is already acceptable to ostracize us (a race) as a mutation. Soon (now, but covertly) we will be considered as animals to people who write articles like this.

Evolution states that progress is made via mutations that are useful. So from that standard, white people are either superior to whatever race they came from (assuming such dogma is true) or are “developmentally neutral” and equal to other races.

This trash is, by definition, racist, and I am sick of the double standard that everyone except white people can be racist.

Ever notice how only white countries are accepting large influx of immigrants? Mostly illegal? Other nations would not be so naive to allow massive unchecked immigration.

Ever notice how rape in sweden has doubled since their immigration “reforms” that allowed vast amounts of trash from foreign nations to come here and live off the backs of the hard working proud white people that call those nations home – and have for thousands of years?

Switzerland is realizing the mistake of believing that we can set our pride aside for the greater good of humanity – to be colorblind, to love everyone as your own, even if they are not from your tribe? We showed the world that we were ready to make a utopia on Earth, but everyone else was too busy coveting our goods and our progress and took advantage of us instead of working with us to make this utopia a global movement.

Switzerland has voted at record numbers to reform immigration. And the Bolshevik run EU is threatening to pull funding from them if they would dare to “keep white countries white”.

There is a conspiracy to destroy white countries by flooding our nations with uneducated illegal immigrants to buy votes to destroy us from the inside.

Multiculturalism and diversity has failed. Look at Britian. Look at Sweden. Look at Switzerland. Look at Italy. Look at Europe! Look at the US!

Diversity is codeword for anti-white!

My problem with all this is people are claiming such speculation as truth.

We are so desperate to find out where we came from and why we are … well the way we are.

We are so desperate in fact, that we jump on any idea without fully examining it. Worse, we take those ideas as full on truths and spout them out as such.

We are similar not the same and that is the big mystery.

Yes we have similar genetic history but something happened 1.5 to 4.5 thousand years ago and to be blunt. We really have no idea what. You can claim its the sun or vitamins from our dietary supplements but our change is not equivalent to the other indigenous fauna of earth.

Such “evolution” to change not only skin color but factual structure as well. The differences in African, Asian, Caucasian.

I’m saying look at Tigers, Lepords and Lions. There skin is different but their facial structure remains the same.

Further more those changes invoke a xenophobic tenancy with in our own species. Almost unheard of in the animal kingdom. To use the example above even Tiger and Lions make ligers (rare) but put in to proximity it will happen because it’s genetically possible. Fear or phobia isn’t taken into factor.

We may have a similar source but something drastic happened to change our species and I say drastic to denote the short time span of the change.

It was as if white people with blue eyes appeared over night (and I’m not figuratively speaking).

The most frustrating part about this is that you all are idiots. So scared to admit that people might be different. It’s a lot easier to love someone when you all come from the same place right?

Then guess what? You are a piece of S***. You should be able to love someone regardless if they share you lineage or not. Its a big f***en universe and if you cant learn to even respect your neighbor (regardless of genetic history) then go ahead a find yourself the biggest f***en rock you can find, crawl under it and disappear.
