Re: Color & Ancestry
In Response To: Color & Ancestry ()

Physical characteristics associated with race - such as skin or hair colour - do not necessarily reflect a person's genetic ancestry, a new study suggests.

Our study makes clear the hazards of equating colour or race with geographical ancestry

A group of scientists - writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences - have found that people who appear white may genetically be mainly African, while people who look black may genetically be European or Amerindian.
