  1. Will Humans Eventually All Look Like Brazilians?
    By Natalie Wolchover | LiveScience.com – Wed, Sep 19, 2012

    According to Stephen Stearns, a Yale professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, before the invention of the bicycle, the average distance between the birthplaces of spouses in England was 1 mile (1.6 kilometers). During the latter half of the 19th century, bikes upped the distance men went courting to 30 miles (48 km), on average. Love's horizons have kept expanding ever since.

    Globalization, immigration, cultural diffusion and the ease of modern travel will gradually homogenize the human population, averaging out more and more people's traits. Because recessive traits depend on two copies of the same gene pairing up in order to get expressed, these traits will express themselves more rarely, and dominant traits will become the norm. Brown skin is in.

    Already in the United States, another recessive trait, blue eyes, has grown far less common. A 2002 study by the epidemiologists Mark Grant and Diane Lauderdale found that only 1 in 6 non-Hispanic white Americans has blue eyes, down from more than half of the U.S. white population being blue-eyed just 100 years ago.

    The genetic mixing under way in the United States is also happening to a greater or lesser degree in other parts of the world, the researchers said.According to Stearns, perfect homogenization of the human race will probably never occur, but in general, Earth is becoming more and more of a melting pot.

    A population forged from the long-term mixing of Africans, Native Americans and Europeans serves as an archetype for the future of humanity, Stearns said: A few centuries from now, we're all going to look like Brazilians.

  6. Forty years ago??

    That's not even two generations.
  7. I cant say I agree with this article. Obviously I can see where the author arrived at his conclusions, but as we spread out in the world, the world spreads out too. Just because someone finds a spouse to have kids with 5,000 miles away doesnt mean that spouse is going to be a different race.

    Although it probably would be better if we all did look like one race, but I cant say this would ever happen, even over the next 100,000 years.

    So you're an aryanhead. I believe it is also spelled airhead.

    The fact is that people aren't as homogeneous as the author suggests. That's why we have black neighborhoods, Hispanic neighborhoods, Italian neighborhoods, etc.

    People, for the most part, prefer to be around other people who are more like themselves.

    That is why Obama never wanted to live in the black community even when he was working with organizations like ACORN. He has always thought of himself as a white guy. But using his black skin and black father as an excuse to take advantage of the AA opportunities in the U.S.

    He has pretty much said this is so himself through his writings.
  10. Like most ignorant asses you read Aryan and see "skinhead".

    Irrespective of however hard you may try ,YOUR IGNORANCE is NOT MY PROBLEM.
