Scientists believe that the “ginger gene,” or “V6OL allele,” showed up 50,000 years ago after humans left Africa for colder climates

This gene made human skin lighter, as they were exposed to less vitamin D from the sun. Scientists made this discovery having studied the gene evolution of 1,000 people from Spain. Ten percent of Irish people have red hair. In total there are 20 million people in Britain and Ireland with the gene that can cause red hair and it remains a dominant gene in southern Europeans today. However, this paler skin also brought health risks, such as melanoma, the deadliest form of cancer, but this is not necessarily due to the redhead gene itself. As a consequence of depigmentation there has been a collateral damage consequence to health. This can be reconciled if we assume that melanoma is typically a post-reproductive disease, and consequently should have little effect on the individual’s genetic contribution to the next generation.

When we reject the absurdity of the "Out Of Africa" theory/LIE, then we can do a much better job of figuring out what is true and what is not true among the endless reports and twists on what "scientists believe."

After we read Carleton Coon, William Pierce, Carleton Putnam, William Gayley Simpson, or Richard Fuerle, we KNOW that Africans are from Africa. Whites (Europeans) and Mongolians (Asians) are not from Africa.
