    Where Does White Skin Come From?

    Vitamin D is not the only theory.

    Recently it was discovered that Neanderthals had white skin and red hair. (at least one of them). "In the discussion is the interbreeding of both species but there are no conclusive facts to it.

    As far as I know the earliest Cro Magnon people had skulls and obviously a body which looked like we look. Whether they had white skin and blue eyes we don't know. But I assume as the rest looked like us why not the whole.

    So that puts the question further back in time. The appearance of Cro Magnon is not fully researched. There is no link to see between blacks and white people, no slow breeding out of undesired traits.

    Basically Cro Magnon appeared on the coast of southern West Europe and at the coast of north West Africa. That's all we know. From the cave art we know it appeared as a whole and very sophisticated (cave of Chauvet) that would be comparably like the appearance of a modern Mercedes Benz 280 in the year 1344 or so. there is no development to see to this point, it just appeared.

    Speculations are that they are from a atlantean Race whose homeland went down in a catastrophy, but those are just mere speculations.

    We know that the waterlevel varied very much during the last 40.000 years The difference is several hundert feet. the landscape, the map we know today is only a shorttime map, good for a mere few thousand years or even less. In the past England was not an Island but part of the european Kontinent. there have been found settlements at the Doggerbank, a flat area for good fishing in the Northsea.

    I don't believe in the nonsense of vitamin D development. Negroes do pretty well in the USA for hundreds of years without detrimental appearances. Also not all of Africa is subtropic. Climates can be the same as in europe. The question would also be, why Eskimoes and Asian didn't develop a white skin, if Vitamin D would be the reason?

    I think we know not enough yet where Cro Magnon came from to answer this question

    It's very simple. White skin, blond/red hair and blue/green eyes all come from two basic mutations in melanin. The first is that the new melanin has sulfur in its molecular level. This causes a yellowish to reddish color rather than black. The second is that the molecular structure of this melanin breaks apart rather quickly. This can be observed in Nordics who have dark roots of their hair yet light tips. Other races have the same color at the root and tips. White people actually have the same amount of melanin produced roughly speaking. Its just the melanin fades away quickly whereas in other races it remains.

    White people also have the original melanin which is why some have black hair and dark eyes and we have brown hair and such which have a little of both. I heard that Asians have light skin due to some other genes that almost do the same thing. I guess with light skinned asians their melanin breaks down quickly as well, but does not have the yellow-red color.

    Cro-Magnon seem to be an older race as they pop on the scene out of nowhere. It is said that all of our fossils of cro magnon and neanderthal could fit in the back of a pick up truck. We just don't have a clear history going back 100,000 years. Light skin tends to be generally considered more attractive among all human groups. Likewise whites (unless you are an albino or redhead or some other anomoly) whites tend to have roughly the same resistance to sunlight and UV as non-whites. All races "tan" when exposed to sun, just you can't see it in black people and less visible in dark people. A normal healthy white person can get dark, but a dark person cannot adapt and become lighter. It seems to be a superior trait all around. Studies have shown that whites really aren't at any significantly greater risk for skin cancer than nonwhites who have the same sun exposure.

    Though I do think if you were living in the tropics and you are white you would have a permanent dark tan. It would be almost impossible to distinguish you from someone who is just naturally dark. I have seen white people in the tropics tan to the degree of almost being black. Thus it would make it far more difficult to keep the purity of whiteness in a tropical environment (unless you live indoors mostly). Probably this is the situation that happened in India where you have people with white like facial features but permanent darkness. In other words I don't think whiteness could have spread or flourished in more southernly regions because everyone would be tanned anyway.

    The weird thing is whites seem to have as a race superior traits. I know its taboo but white people are less likely to get cancer or heart disease and other such problems when exposed to the same environment. They are less likely to get addicted to drugs, are able to digest alcohol (most non whites cannot which is why they can't handle their liquor and become alcoholics easily), they can digest milk (again with a few small exeptions most non whites cannot), they have more geniuses per capita, they have more athletic abilities on average etc. It is a very strange puzzle. My best guess would be that it has to do with the ancient Aryan belief in Eugenics. This originated with people who at first raised crops, then cattle and horses. They started to apply the same ideas of good breeding used with their chickens and cows to their own people or subjects.

    It probably goes hand in hand with domestication of beasts. The Aryans were the first to largely domesticate the horse. Cro Magnon may have been the first to largely domesticate animals. This mostly occurred in northern areas or mountains where growing grain was less useful. Places like Africa all you have to do is climb a tree and pick a banana. There's no need to have a highly organized society. Thus the seasons of the north seems to have been a catalyst for a new evolution of man.

    Though now that we are not slaves to our environment we could probably spread this "new man" outside of historic ranges and develope it even further. Now you get into basic national socialists principles.

    Most people alive today are mixed breeds. Thus most of your brown skins have a mix of white like melanin and black like ones. Asians have their own light skinned melanin which gives them their unique complexion though many of them are tanned cuz they live south or have some black in them.
