This is a hot topic at Stormfront. That is about the only topic actually.

Hey, I am a dark Swede, I mean, my skin is more olive than..pink. I must be mixed with African..

you should the check the origin of some of those haplogroups... not to mention the the mtdna haplogroups...

Aztec's have a relatively pure genetic composition so I'm sure there is no chance that Downey's eyes came from Aztec ancestors, but Robert Downey JR is genetically a "mixed breed" like most Europeans.

I have and you see more genetic conformity and the city pound. BTW going back about 60 thousand years is all devolves to a single African man living in East Africa.

Genetic variation is not the same thing as coloring.

Yes coloring is entirely superficial.

Thank You Lucario (this is highly appreciated) for correcting Leel's misinformation on "black men raping white women". However, you are correct about black men being brutally attacked for existing. Also, the slaves may have had "thoughts" of wanting to harm their owner or rape white women, but it was just that,...a "thought".

While I don't like the terminology of "pure race," DNA studies do identify people whose ancestry is based in one continent. I, for example, to the extent an autosomal DNA can reasonably identify, descend from people in one relatively small area of one continent. Beyond about ten generations, though, things get a little murky.
