White Europeans could have evolved as recently as 5,500 years ago, according to research which suggests that the early humans who populated Britain and Scandinavia had dark skins for millenniums.
It was only when early humans gave up hunter-gathering and switched to farming about 5,500 years ago that white skin began to be favoured, say the researchers.
This is because farmed food was deficient in vitamin D, a vital nutrient. Humans can make this in their skin when exposed to sunlight, but dark skin is much less efficient at it.
Of course many Asians and peoples across North America reside in similar climates yet they are red, brown and yellow skinned (as well as possessing clearly distinct skull and skeletal builds and facial characteristics).
The point remains though that "dark skin" is not defined in the context of the study alluded to. Sean Connery has "dark skin" compared to Roger Moore, for example.
But the kicker of the article is that this same media that spends so much time telling us race is a social construct turns right around and tells us that White People recently came about.
But that is the Left.
It is a world of unending lies, hypocrisies and delusions.
They will tell us there is no such thing as race on the one hand, then preach to us the sacredness of diversity on the other.
After all, if there is no such thing as race, then there can be no such thing as diversity.
And for those who would shout, "we all bleed red", yeah, well, so do rats and monkeys!
