DNA Study Proves Everyone is Black: White Supremacists on Suicide Watch

  • White people have only been around for a relatively short period of time. 
  • White supremacists say time only begins when white people showed up.
  • Suicide watch for people opposed to #blacklivesmatter
Today's NY Times has a piece affirming what has generally been understood - that  human migration came out of Africa from one source.
Examining their data separately, all three groups came to the same conclusion: People everywhere descend from a single migration of early humans from Africa. 

How We Got Here: DNA Points to a Single Migration From Africa

The estimates from the studies point to an exodus somewhere between 80,000 and 50,000 years. Time sure flies. It took only 80,000 years for a chunk of humanity to become assholes. That gene is still to be identified.

While the issue of when and where white or Asians diversified is not dealt with in the article, the guess has been that whites diversified when migration reached colder climes with less sun.

Above is a photo from the article -- the people who are the ultimate mommies and daddies. Somewhere deep down I have an urge to hunt and gather. I'm going into my garden to pick a raspberry. And hunt a bear.

  1. Actually, this is good news for white supremers. It shows that whites represent a later, and therefore a more advanced evolutionary iteration of mankind. Fighting racism with rhetorical argument, regardless of its empirical merit, is a futile endeavor. A bit like trying to get Norm to budge from one of his cherished shibbeloths.
