White people evolved lighter skin when the moved to Europe from Africa, meaning that white people are more evolved than black people, which means, it's not racist to say that we're smarter. amirite?

Actually darker skin remained a favorable trait in Africa while lighter skin was favorable in the north, so we didn't evolve into superior beings or anything, people in different regions just needed different characteristics.

the hell are you talking about? adaptation is small scale evolution, making it easier to survive in different circumstances. melanin production lessened, because not as much was needed, making white skin more efficient in the north. however, dark skin was still more efficient near the equator as uv protection. if evolution favored white people, light pigmentation would have or would be replacing dark pigmentation altogether

@Yes, and then people moved from Africa and EVOLVED lighter skin, meaning EVOLUTION favors white people, and we're...

being smarter and being more evolved are completely different. Furthermore, how are Africans not equally as evolved as white people? Their skin grew darker and more resistant to UVA/UVB burns. Our skin grew lighter because we no longer required as much protection.

You do realize that not everyone on amirite is white, making "we" wrong for a lot of people....

You are a fucking moron. Go back to school and take some biology lessons.
Darker skin reduces the penetration of uv light. This is therefore favoured in places which are exposed to greater amounts of uv light, such as africa, as vitamin d is easily synthesised (also reduces likelihood of cancer). As Europe has less amounts of uv light, lighter skin is favoured in order to optimise vitamin d synthesis. Homo sapiens have only been around in the last 150,000 years give or take a couple, and so it is impossible for any great evolutionary change to occur in this time. Unless a sudden unfavourable environmental change occured, which has not happened since the ice age. There is no such thing as being 'more evolved' in this case. And also google more about natural selection so you can actually understand just how ignorant and wrong you are.

Comments here are GOLD. you're just making the op love himself.

Black people and white people (and any ethnicity) have the exact same genetic make up. We are the same. The only difference is a skin pigment, melanin, which protects from UV rays. People that originate from countries with more intense sunlight have more melanin to protect them, people originating from countries where sunlight is less extreme do not need as much.

everyone's genes are different. You might be able to roll your tongue, while someone else cannot. Someone might have two different colored eyes, or uneven ears, or a bigger nose. Those are all genetic traits. So no, we are not all exactly the same.

Scrantoncity read noons comment and take a deep breath. It's funny because we were just discussing this in anthro today. And my teacher, and avid believer in evolution, made it abundantly clear that evolutionists DO NOT believe white people are smarter than black people. You can barely differentiate between black and white people because no one is "truly" black or white. We are all different variations of the two. And skin colour is based on how much melanin you have, and has no correlation to your intelligence. Hasn't anyone taken bio 101?

Anonymous +2Reply

This was all incredibly entertaining, but let's get down to the matter at hand: skin color has no link to brain power whatsoever. Damn. And its pretty safe to say that one cannot exist without the other. Black people invented stoplights and blood tranfusions. Imagine your life without these things. All races are equal, no matter which way you slice it. And maybe the people in Africa didnt WANT to move. It's not that they weren't capable. Maybe they didn't WANT to. And some did. It's people like you racist bigots, always trying to find some way to prove your twisted logic.

You know, evolution does not mean you become smarter. In Kurt Vonnegut's novel Galapagos, the only humans left on the Earth live on the islands which are the namesake for the novel. Forced to look to the water to food, they develop an efficient method of fishing involving swimming underwater to catch fish. Over a period of 1,000,000 years, natural selection favors those who can more easily glide through the water, thus they develop a streamline body-type and smaller brains.

-"Science" doesn't say anything, because science isn't one big united thing that everyone agrees on. "Scientist CLAIMS." "THEORY of so-and-so." "DISPUTE over blah blah blah." Scientists disagree! They have different opinions! Different theories! Different research! (Shocking, huh) And there's many, many scientists.

I don't know what the theory of "evaluation" is, but it sums up the general intelligence of your comment.

First, nobody has provided real facts. Alright? Don't ask it from me and not expect it from them. We simply don't know because so much of science today is fraudulent.

Second, you seem to be under the impression that whatever anyone else links is correct, because it supports your views, and whatever I link is somehow unfactual. Okay, find it. You can't just say "maybe it could be slightly unfactual, so it's invalid". You have to find anything if you Want an iota of respect.

Second, you seem to be focusing on one tiny aspect of my argument. That isn't even my point, it's just funny to know that your beloved science is racist.

Third, the "evaluation" theory says that the more evolved moved away, and the less evolved (blacks) remained in Africa.

Did you not get my last point at all? I was saying that you cannot say science in itself is racist, because there are many different aspects of it. One scientist does not reflect all science, got it? So one scientist being racist does not mean all of science is being racist.

well theory exists that the original homo sapien killed his brother homo erectus as part of the fight for survival. that means that ancestors of modern day africans existed at the same time as homo erectus.
that still doesnt make make them less evolved though. skull shape can change via natural and artificial selection. like that remote aboriginal tribe with two toed members, called the ostrich tribe in their native tongue. maybe african, i dont remember. it could also be that there was no reason for african skull shape to change because it was fully functional. Or the combination of both, evolutionary selection causing change in skull shape and adaptation causing change in skin tone.
also, how do you explain the mongoloid skull shape?

No, we don't, and it doesn't.

According to evolution, all life stems from a single source. Because it has had exactly the same amount of time to evolve, every species alive today is exactly as evolved as another. Black people are exactly as evolved as white people, who are exactly as evolved as snails, which are exactly as evolved as broccoli.

Of course, species such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex are less evolved than broccoli, since they are extinct and therefore have not been evolving these past 65 million years, but they were (by most definitions, ie those that define "smart" as "having a brain") smarter than broccoli. "Less evolved" and "more evolved" do not affect intelligence in any way.

You are confusing evolutionary theory with social darwinism. In the past, some people used Darwin's theories of natural selection to support their preexisting racist views. They would show differences in physical structure between the different races in an attempt to prove the superiority of one race. Recent scientific findings in genetics have shown that there is no correlation between race and how evolved someone is. Besides, the logic of social darwinists was greatly flawed due to their racial prejudices and it clouded their judgment and research.

If you went back to that link you posted, you'll notice that it states the opinions of many people, however none of these opinions or quotes give any examples of scientific research to support them.

"[the idea that whites are better] was commonly reflected in science books published from 1880 and 1980." It's been 30 YEARS! "Today, all human beings in the world today, are classified as Homo Sapiens and scientists now admit that, biologically, there really is only one race of humans." "Recent IQ tests of people throughout the world have found that, with allowance for cultural differences, the IQ ranges of all extant identified races is extremely close. The pygmy population of Africa, supposedly the most backward race extant today, test close to average when acclimated to Western life. Few differences are found between the second and third generation pygmies living in large Australian cities who are acclimated to the established European population."
