Well, I'm not a racist (have already said...) but, for me, such
discoveries, technically speaking, just should prove (at first
sight and no more other discoveries...) that all the present humans
belongs to the same species (all "sapiens" - hehehe) but not
necessarily the same race ... mutations happens all the time...
(I would joke a little, but will not for not being misinterpreted...)
I couldn't stand: A heavenly cosmic ray fell over an ancestral of
ours' head... and some of us got white... and were after banished
from "paradise"...
