    You're still talking about a population that was absorbed, rather than went extinct. which rather turns the old way of looking at it on its head.

    According to Quran the different colors/races of people is from among the wonders of the God.

    I think the Word White is not a scientific Word and it is used by it's supremacists for the germanic race.

    This thread made me laugh. And then I cried when I realized some of the things being said.

    I don't get it.

    Yes. We evolved from a lineage of hominid apes.

    Yes. We evolved in Africa, and spread out from Africa to the rest of the globe.

    Yes. Neanderthal and Anatomically Modern Human populations bred together, and many of us (European or otherwise) have Neanderthal DNA.

    Yes. Our earliest Anatomically Modern Human ancestors would have been dark-skinned, or "black" if you prefer. Skin color and other "ethnic features" are due to environmental factors, mutations in the human genome to adapt to the many different climates and regions we migrated to. As such, ancestral human populations can be seen as a global gradient of haplotypes, without any real such thing as "race" in the modern sense (i.e. white and black).

    My white skin is most certainly the result of my ancestors, living in the climates of northern Europe needing more UV absorption and therefore it was more efficient in such a climate to have a reduction in melanin in the skin. My red hair is the result of a freak mutation, related in part to the reduced melanin production in my genetic code (same with my bluish-green eyes).

    Yes, I'm a mutant; and I don't see what the problem is.
