THE Y phylogeny Concept

I have studied the African and so-called white. African with Euro-Asian Y
chromosome, even though you maybe surprised, because they all looked African.
They could be classified as mixed race, but they weren't, because result came out of perception they didn't look any different from other Africans.
With the introduction of Y chromosome into the African population, after many generations, they all would look like Africans which is the dominant. If an African woman with Euro-Asian mtDNA has children with a African man with a Euro-Asian Y chromosome, they are white by classification, but only to someone who thinks halpogroups define race. To some so-called whites they are still African.
To put it another way... The so-called white can deny his or her *African DNA
some 15,000 to 20,000 thousand years ago, even thou it's evident today.
The basic tribal concept, we are all still Africans, weather we are lack of color or have color. We are still hard-wired to tribes and use facial identity to foster that belief. Becoming so-called white has nothing to do with biology, but instead a
political category of people we like and people we dislike for various reasons.
Either a race is to be defined based on genetic information or race is a social construct that doesn't exist. The motivating factor, promoting the idea that race is nothing more than a political classification. The word "Mixed-race" is moot.
It's a word that do not have any real meaning. What do you compare it to.
"White is not a race", and race is not pure...never was and never will be.
The racist puerile are using fuzzy logic trying to put a square peg into a round hole.
The word "Cauc-Asian" is a name of location or a place of origin, not skin color.
The word "Aryan" people of the Indo-Iranian languages (Indo-Euro-Asian).
It was idealized by un-scientic racist beliefs. DNA can prove a different concept,
that we all are the same with small variations. There are people who prefer to be
more of tradition than genetics to be classified as so-called white. Catering to a
desire to be like a tribe or extended family, by using an age old facial and language identification. (also skulls classification).
