The races (sub-species) are biologically distinct, QED:
A debate has arisen regarding the validity of racial/ethnic categories for biomedical and genetic research. Some claim ‘no biological basis for race’ while others advocate a ‘race-neutral’ approach, using genetic clustering rather than self-identified ethnicity for human genetic categorization. We provide an epidemiologic perspective on the issue of human categorization in biomedical and genetic research that strongly supports the continued use of self-identified race and ethnicity.
Parroting a comment I made to Vox for SEO.
And just like white people have other ‘species’ DNA (Neanderthal), so too do Africans (non-Neanderthal).
I too, fucking love science.
“Instead, we looked at DNA from modern humans belonging to African populations and searched for unusual regions in the genome.”
And they were older than modern. Imagine my shock.
“What we do know is that the sequences of those forms, even the Neanderthals, are not that different from modern humans,” he said.
-BECAUSE THEY THE SAME SPECIES. Sorry, broke into spontaneous ebonics because of the topic.
“They have certain characteristics that make them different from modern DNA.”
Could be better or worse depending on the variant. They refuse to clone Neanderthals because no company could own them (human rights are based on demonstration of human IQ) and they’d be the smartest human on the planet. It would show us all up. I want it to happen. Neanderthals were more civilized than us, we learnt funerary rites from them. Please clone the African ancestors too, see what happens.
“Then we asked ourselves what does the general pattern of variation look like in the DNA that we sequenced in those African populations, and we started to look at regions that looked unusual,” Hammer said. “We discovered three different genetic regions fit the criteria for being archaic DNA still present in the genomes of sub–Saharan Africans. Interestingly, this signature was strongest in populations from central Africa.”
I’ll fly high on this one and say no comment.
“We are talking about something that happened between 20,000 and 60,000 years ago – not that long ago in the scheme of things,” Hammer said. “If interbreeding occurs, it’s going to bring in a whole chromosome, and over time, recombination events will chop the chromosome down to smaller pieces. And those pieces will now be found as short, unusual fragments. By looking at how long they are we can get an estimate of how far back the interbreeding event happened.”
Outbreeding depression…. it isn’t inter-breeding, it’s out-breeding….
“We think there were probably thousands of interbreeding events,” Hammer said. “It happened relatively extensively and regularly.”
He can’t be saying, they were literally fucking monkeys? No. …No? No.
Are they technically humans they were screwing or not? At best, they mixed races. At worst, bestiality. I read a conspiracy that human anatomy is so weird because we’re the result of primates mating with hogs. That’s why pig hearts and such work on us. It was surprisingly detailed and I couldn’t think of anything to counter it.* I am also scared now.
I’m making the odd low/no effort post when I can be asked.
