RE: Neanderthal x human
I thought this was a new find in addition to the child until I clicked the link.

My favorite recent find is the discovery that DNA sequenced from early Cro Magnon man showed that there were no white people in ancient Europe; the genes for "whiteness" did not mutate into present Caucasian form until a maximum of 20,000 years ago, and probably more recently than that (new estimates place it no earlier than 8000 years ago!), along with the ability to digest lactose in milk. A wave of migrations into Europe from the east and the Scandinavian regions rapidly placed selection pressure on the genes for skin tone and diet-compatibility in most Europeans, perhaps as recently as 6500-2500 BCE.

In short, Europe was settled by black people, and only much later did they become light-skinned and pale-haired.

Quite true... A part of this I find fun -- is it qualifies EVERYONE to put down "African American" on the next census form....

Except those of us who aren't Americans at all. I've never been to that continent.

RE: Neanderthal x human
The whole of the declaring oneself to be a particular "race" -- isn't really about geography -- it's more about time.

That is -- you're not really saying anything about where your ancestors are from ---- you're just picking a particular time in history and saying your ancestors were "there" (where ever) and that's where you came from ...... But -- if you were to continue back in time you'd find that the "there" you picked was just a place your ancestor ended up in. They came from someplace else.

We're all immigrants - all through time.
