Ok so I recently saw the news and saw that some scientists have researched that there is no race, as in color. It's basically, our skin darkens to how hot the sun is. Like if your skin is dark it means that your skin is protecting it from the heat rays.. or something like that. So I thought about it. That does make sense.. in places like Africa, their skin is dark because the sun is really hot. I don't know if I'm explaining this right or clear enough but you should get the picture.

But then what really got me was when they said that everyone was from Africa and eventually migrated to other places.. I doubt that though.. So what do you think??

And eventually there will only be subtle color variations between all people. A nice shade of tanned beauty will be everyone's color. Even all those hardcore redneck aryans, some will get with another "race" and bam, no more aryans, ROFL.

define race
is it just skin colour
or is it also eye colour, size, beliefs?
race is a much more complex subject than simply skin colour.

Race = social phenomenon/construct too bad not everyone is very aware of this. Remember kids, education is good for you!

It is a sort of long term biological adaptation. DNA mutates over generations and that too drastically! So if you body is trying to adapt to extreme heat / humidity / dryness / cold etc.. and the combination of them the skin color varies.

Hence The reddish skin texture of Native Americans, Yellowish White skin of East Asians, brownish-yellow skin of West Asians, lack for Africans and finally white for Europeans.
Think about the type of climate each region falls under and you will know. But ofcourse no one can change skin colours in a matter of days, months or years. It takes generations to adapt to the environment and change the body accordingly.

its all true, race is a political term used to create nationalism and wars. there is only one REAL race- the HUMAN race. Everything else is just politics/culture and a reason to kill each other. peace over war
