All non Africans living today are part Neanderthal, according to a study conducted in the 2011 issue of Molecular Biology and Evolution. Recent scientific findings suggests the two populations interbred. Damian Labuda, University of Montreal’s Department of Pediatrics and the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center, conducted the study with his colleagues. They found the human X chromosome originates from the Neanderthal, but only in non African people. Labuda believes the two populations interbred while modern humans were migrating out of Africa and spreading to other regions of the globe.
According to Discovery.com, the ancestors of Neanderthals left Africa about 400,000 to 800,000 years ago. They evolved over the millennia mostly in what are now France, Spain, Germany and Russia. They went extinct, or were simply absorbed into the modern human population, about 30,000 years ago.
Nearly a decade ago Labuda and his colleagues identified a piece of DNA called a haplotype in the human X chromosome that seemed different. “There is little doubt that this haplotype is present because of mating with our ancestors and Neanderthals,” said Nick Patterson of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University. Patterson, who did not participate in the latest research says, “This is a very nice result, and further analysis may help determine more details.”
Dr. David Reich of Harvard Medical School sayss “Dr. Labuda and his colleagues were the first to identify a genetic variation in non-Africans that was likely to have come from an archaic population. This was done entirely without the Neanderthal genome sequence, but in light of the Neanderthal sequence, it is now clear that they were absolutely right!”
This reminds me of a sermon Minister Farrahkhan did in which he made a correlation between white people and a common saying amongst them, “ain’t I a monkey’s uncle.” In that sermon, which was recorded over a decade ago, Minister Farrahkhan suggested white people were related to monkeys.
A man by the name of Minister Enqi has made claims that European lineage comes from the Rhesus monkey. He says the Rhesus monkey is where the RH positive and negative blood types comes from.
And to think, for years white people called African Americans monkeys.
