    Only part that made me laugh was the links down at the bottom where it lets you see other things with the same tags and it says:

    "See More: Racism"

    Yes, I figured that out, but was just wondering where that comes from.. Do they eat chicken all the time? The same way all chinese people eat rice all the time? This makes my head hurt..

    The `Out of Africa` theory or recent single-origin hypothesis is one of two theories of the origin of modern humans. The article above shows there is evidence to support this theory. Basically it says that modern humans first evolved in Africa and afterwards spread out across the world. So deanmalenko is making a point although I don`t know what the climate would have been at the time. Tjames- he never said all black people came from Africa, he said all people come from Africa.

    I`m not racist or anything, but that was pretty funny.

    It`s all based on stereotypes, not racism. (And yes, there`s a difference. Racism is fueled by hatred, and stereotypes are based on common conditions.)

    you see this is what REALLY annoys me, when people say someone is racist when there not being racist, this is not racist, if he was DISCRIMENATING (sorry if it`s not spelt right) he for being black/white/etc. THEN it`d have been racist, but it`s not, that`s just using stereotypical black/white phrases to predict his race, alright? *FLAME SHIELD*

    Tjames. Your an idiot. Where did you learn to read? He didn`t say ALL BLACK PEOPLE came from Africa. He said ALL PEOPLE came from Africa.
    Secondly Dragonfirexz....In some religions and even in some theories of science everyone originated from one skin color...No it isn`t a fact. And personally I don`t find myself believeing it but he has a right to his opinion. Also..It wouldn`t be assuming. He was taught that all people started in one place and moved from there and eventually started to adapt to their new habitats.
    ...But I`m stupid..who knows.

    I`m white are you!?

    And, like Carlos said, you aren`t racist unless you think your race is superior to another.
    Saying blacks like chicken is stereotyping.

    If there is going to be some crazy forum debate about this, at least do it intelligently.

    It could be possible that two different types of amino acids define the amount of melanin that the human gene SLC24A5 produces: Threonine and Alanine. Threonine may be responsible for less melanine and Alanine for more.
    Why nearly all humans of European descent have the Threonine amino acid is unsure; however, It is believed that Europeans developed lighter skin to allow more Vitamen D to be absorbed from the sun due to their sun deprived-latitudes.
    (Melanin is a natural sun block in our skin, Alanine causes darker skin, Threonine is lighter)

    So for you people who did get it, could you explain to the rest of us, please? Is he trying to figure out what color his roommate is? even though the guy says he`s white? or is he just commenting on the language he uses? or did two people write the letter? I`m so confused...

    I thought it was mildly funny.

    It`s actually making fun of racists and stupid stereotypes (these are racist stereotypes btw), by mocking the fact that there are some people out there who would care, and who believe that they can tell someone`s race just from an email.

    Similar to the comedy in Borat (which apparently a lot of people didn`t get either).

    actually the change of colour was not a mutation, dear deanmalenko, as this would be a non natural evolution, the colour of ones skin due to the melanin production, when the continents driftet some people drifted with, and Tjames, no not all dark skinned people came from Africa, ALL people came from Africa or the continant now known as Africa, in those days it was rather larger, those who drifted to northern Europe had to adjust to the climate or die, brighter skin to and more body hear, was just one or to of the changes natural selcetion had in peto. And just to confuse, our DNA is to 99,8 % identical to that of a pig, a pigs ancestor is the whale, so we all once were whales swimming in the pacific ocean. makes racism a bit weired if you look at it biologically, dogs are upto 97,3 % identical in DNA sequence as humans and people are worring about colour, I´m happy I don´t have a tail or bite the postman
