Genotypes are just individuals or organisms who come from a similar genepool and express similar outer features. Phenotypes are once genotypes whose outer appearance changed because of exposure to another environment.

Hence...once everyone left Africa they changed.

Abstract

Races may exist in humans in a cultural sense, but biological concepts of race are needed to access their reality in a non-species-specific manner and to see if cultural categories correspond to biological categories within humans. Modern biological concepts of race can be implemented objectively with molecular genetic data through hypothesis-testing. Genetic data sets are used to see if biological races exist in humans and in our closest evolutionary relative, the chimpanzee. Using the two most commonly used biological concepts of race, chimpanzees are indeed subdivided into races but humans are not. Adaptive traits, such as skin color, have frequently been used to define races in humans, but such adaptive traits reflect the underlying environmental factor to which they are adaptive and not overall genetic differentiation, and different adaptive traits define discordant groups. There are no objective criteria for choosing one adaptive trait over another to define race. As a consequence, adaptive traits do not define races in humans. Much of the recent scientific literature on human evolution portrays human populations as separate branches on an evolutionary tree. A tree-like structure among humans has been falsified whenever tested, so this practice is scientifically indefensible. It is also socially irresponsible as these pictorial representations of human evolution have more impact on the general public than nuanced phrases in the text of a scientific paper. Humans have much genetic diversity, but the vast majority of this diversity reflects individual uniqueness and not race.

Exactly. Science....ain't it grand? 



So if there's no such thing as race, and we're all the same, can we all bury white guilt and stop all this affirmative action codswallop?

Blacks are better athletes, yeh! Black are better dancers, yeh! Whites are more intelligent, what? RACIST!



Black people were racist (until recently) and white people were not (but now supposedly are if they cops)

Reason for this black people fro Afrida have no Neanderthal DNA, White people went all funky and did inter species breading.

OK so my post is left field but generally in a modern world we are the same. Opportunities and culture will influence your outcome in life no matter what colour.

Everyone was the same in Africa..Whites became white and evolved around the caucasus mountain area, hence the term Caucasian and it wasnt just Caucasian people but everyone else who migrated out of africa who mated with the neandethals. It only affected a small percentage of human DNA in ancient times so really and truly its not counted for anything really.

25 percent of blacks in America have European heritage, so yeah were all pretty diverse phenotypes.



White men can't jump!

yer I know was jsut throwing soming different into the mix rather than nose hair



 

 

Is it weird I can now guess if it's a Spurge thread just by the title?

Gotcha. I also thought it was worth noting that civilization as we know it as a structural concept can be attributed to Asian society (The middle eastern variety). No one else historically founded it before them. We've learned much from one anothers experiences after evolution from the various ranges on the planet.
