The Widenreich theory is that the races predate the species. That is to say there were differences between East Asians and Europeans before the species Homo sapiens sapiens emerged. Widenreich and Coon believed that a Neanderthal had features that modern Europeans have - thin faces, protruding noses, etc. And that early East Asians had features that modern asians have - flat faces and shoveled teeth. Both people crossed the boundary to become modern people and kept those distinguishing characteristics.
More recently this view has been championed by Wolpoff. But about twenty years ago the multiple thread theory has been eclipsed by the Out of Africa theory. This theory traces all modern humans to a woman called Mitochrondrial Eve who lived in Africa about 150,000 to 200,000 years ago.
This theory has always had plausibility problems. One of the biggest problems is the shovelled teeth issue of asians. Out of Africa claims that about 100,000 years ago (or so) the modern africans eliminated all previous peoples in Asia and Europe. In asia the older peoples (Homo erectus) had long had shovelled teeth. OoA theory claimed that everyone of those older asians was eliminated and replaced by a modern african who then evolved shovelled teeth. Wolpoff has long argued that this and the similar issue of the european Neanderthals is too implausible to be taken seriously.
The Out of Africa hypothesis was put forth in 1987. It was the major second "genetic clock" theory to capture the public's imagination.Read more ›
Though it has some very "right wing" leanings to it, i did not find it to be overtly "racist" (as some claim... though it does get pretty close lol!), and i am proud to count Erectus, Neanderthal, etc. among my many "archaic ancestors".
In simple English folks, if your interested in the various types of men in our history, buy this book!
Namely that the negro brain weighs on average 120 grams less than the brains of whites, and that the negro brain weighs even less than that when compared with asian (and Jewish) brains.
That might sound like an incendiary statement, but alas, it is rooted in hard, pitiless science.
In 1830 Doctor Samuel Morton published his "Craniae Americana."
As you all know, refuting "Craniae" became the life's work of Jew "scholar" Stephen Jay Gould, whose 1981 "Mismeasure of Man" was required reading for tens of millions of American college students (I was forced to read it, and believe it).
Famously, and wonderfully, Gould's "Mismeasure" was itself refuted in 2011 by (mostly non-white) scientists in Chicago and California. Their conclusion: Morton was right ; Gould was lying.
Not only was Morton right, the Good Doctor actually under-reported average brain size differences between the races.
What logical person with a pair of eyes could look at the sloped, extreme prognathic skull of the modern african, and not make a link between brain structure and intelligence?
Answer: the New York Times. Why? Because they want humans to be fungible.
Humans are not fungible.
Those shackled by Political Cowardtion (NOT "Correction") really need to come to grips with the realities of the White Man's Burden, grow a pair. and stop pretending.
