    The earliest humans were in Africa.  Pale skin didn't start until a population moved far enough North that it was an advantage to have pale skin (it absorbs more ultraviolet and increases vitamin D).  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melanin#Evolutionary...

  • White people came first. And they're the greatest race that ever lived.

    Current hypothesis is that our early human ancestors came from the east part of Africa.  They would have looked a lot like today's residents, i.e. black.

    I would say that those two individuals came at about the same time (similar in age).  In terms of human characteristics, "white" (meaning lack of lots of dermal pigmentation) is something which arose later than the development of humans as a species.  From what we can tell, humans came into existence in a subtropical location where low pigmentation would have been counterproductive (been harmful for survival).  After migration to more boreal regions, the loss of pigmentation became favorable because of changes in amount of exposure to sunlight.

    It would be cool if, instead of wondering about stuff like this, you actually sat around and wondered things like, how can i make my community better...who can I help today...I wonder where I could do some volunteer work to help abused animals...

    do you get it ?
