Race is a social construct created for economic benefit by European SLAVE TRADERS to justify the subordination of enslaved Africans. We were not SLAVES. We were ENSLAVED. There's a big difference.
Race is NOT biological. ALL life began in Africa, which is the Cradle of Civilization. That's not my opinion. It's a fact supported by archeological, historical and genetic research.
Between 80,000 and 50,000 years ago, a single human migration out of Africa became the forebears of ALL non-Africans. We crossed into Arabia via the Red Sea, and geneticists’ maps show that we traveled from Arabia to India to Japan and Australia.
In 2016, studies were published by three separate teams of geneticists who collected and examined DNA from 787 people from hundreds of indigenous populations around the globe. They revealed that ALL non-Africans today trace their ancestry to a single AFRICAN population.
Variations in human skin color are adaptive traits that correlate closely with geography and the sun’s UV radiation. Melanin, the skin's brown pigment, is a natural sunscreen that protects tropical peoples from the many harmful effects of UV rays. Peoples that migrated to colder geographic zones with less sunlight developed lighter skin color.
