if Africans were "the first humans", doesn't that implicitly mean they're from a less evolved DNA strain?
Chihuahuas came after wolves, which do you consider to be superior in nature??
>there are many non-falsifiable explanations I can desperately cling to and continue creating to avoid the elephant on the room
it's on the level of "if we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys" anon
we didn't literally evolve from people who share the exact same ethnicity as modern-day subsaharan africans, the same proto-humans BECAME what we know as africans and everyone else at later times. You can say that they evolved in a less advantageous way, sure, maybe interbreeding with other non-neanderthal hominids along the way (dubious as that may be), but they aren't coelocanths.
do you think the Bell Curve is a reputable source for ethnology data, anon?
People say "africans were the first humans" as if it is a merit of being African, but that would imply that they are closer to pre-humans. If they simply say "humans first came about in Africa" that is a lot less ignorant and doesn't hold the same connotations that the We Wuz Kangz crowd want.
Chihuahuas could not possibly exist in the wild without human intervention and modern civilization. You could more accurately compare them to Blacks in the United States that would starve to death in the streets if not for our social services safety net.
I meant the book, but the image you posted is pretty shaky too
if you have access to the literature databases you can find other distributions. that one is not perfect but it's not terribly far off. I'm not the guy that posted it. if I were on my PC I'd post a collection of distributions.
I think the level of civilization a people are capable of is closely related to their intelligence. Africans and other brown people around the world are dumber than Europeans and Asians. In a capitalist society that places a value on intelligence, Blacks are automatically relegated to the lowest classes by birth. The system indeed be keeping them down and sheee-it, but not because of racism, but because they suck at reading, writing and basic arithmetic and they drop out of school from frustration.
>Africans and other brown people around the world are dumber than Europeans and Asians.
By what metric? What of the Indian civilization which has existed contiguously since antiquity? It's ridiculous not to acknowledge the very glaring geographic factors, you can potentially argue that Europeans and Asians aren't wrong for colonizing and subjugating CULTURALLY inferior "brown people" but there's no real concrete basis for considering them genetically inferior.
Have you seen the West African coast? Even the sophisticated Chinese and Japanese were poorly outfitted to sail and reach the New World when it would have been advantageous to colonization and getting the same material leg up over other civilizations.
Of course, how ignorant of me. G-d created the Earth in six days and rested on the seventh. He populated the Earth with animals and fake bones to trick the goyi....I mean us. There were only two original people, Adam and Eve. Eve convinced Adam to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and they were kicked out of the Garden of Isra...I mean Eden. Good was satisfied with slaughtering animals for 4,000 years but then decided to have a Jewish (obviously because the Jews are the chosen people) son who is the savior to all the goyi...I mean humans. So remember, fellow Christian G-d is real and the Jews are his chosen people. Now remember to give your shek...I mean offerings to the syna...I mean Church and also stand with Israel.
