Confirmed: Non-Africans found to be part-Neanderthal
CBS News ^ | July 18, 2011 2:22 PM | CBS News

Next time you're about to slam somebody for carrying on like a Neanderthal, think twice: You might be hitting close to home.

A new study published in the Molecular Biology and Evolution reports that people of non-African heritage carry a chromosome which originates from Neanderthals, offering evidence that the two populations interbred at a certain point in history.

Are these the white devils that some ancient African scientist supposedly created thousands of years ago?

I guess next time I won’t take offense, except for the ‘knuckle dragging part’.

They probably do not have the Neanderthal gene because Neanderthals stayed away from them because they were racists! Cue the “That’s Racist!” kid.

So my question is this. Why is it that that Whitey has the gene and doesn’t act like one very often but the violent crime rate shows it is disproportionately in favor of those who do not have the gene but act like them?

It’s entirely possible that I had some Neanderthal during a drunk in my earlier years. Not saying that it happened, you understand. Just maybe.

Ping. It's SeeBS and might be a repackage of something already posted, but seemed interesting to the Neanderthal issue.

They needed a study for this? My sister used to date a full Neanderthal! And he was bit light of skin, yes...

Neanderthal and proud of it!

From Wikipedia:

The species is named after the Neander valley, located about 12 km (7.5 mi) east of Düsseldorf, Germany. This ravine formed by the river Düssel, widened out by mining, was named Neanderthal in the early 19th century to honour the clergyman and hymn writer Joachim Neander: "Tal" (spelled "Thal" until the German spelling reform of 1901) is the German word for valley.[14]

Also we all know, as Reverend Jeremiah Wright preached to the resident in the WHite Hut, that white folk are racially inferior to black folk. This just proves it fer sure.The Obama administration controls its MSM talking points well.

Anyone left on FR who doesn’t think that the current regime and its media mavins are fascists? Hmmmmm?

Good read:

http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/barack_obama_the_quintessentia_1.html

Its preposterous to say that black folk do not bear a neaderthal chromosome,it is a good bet that many do. Red hair may also come from the neanderthal gene line. Africans do have red hair by times.

So if everything is as Darwin says and we all progressed through the changes that turned us into humans, and non-Africans (Whites-Asians) came from Neanderthals, where did Africans come from?

Look at most of the responses here. Playful and positive.

And THAT my friends is the biggest difference between most conservatives and most liberals. Can you imagine the cries of RACISM from the left had this been said about blacks?

They evolved in Kenya from Homo Erect Cuss, which explains the disproportionate crime rates among African Americans.

I can believe this. Many years ago while commuting to work I noticed men whose facial structure reminded me of primitive men. Some even had bunches of ugly black hair emanating from their white shirt sleeves.

These observations told me even then that Neanderthal man walked among us.

Blue eyes and reddish hair. People often called me "red" before my blonde highlights.

Pale skin, and Irish/German ancestry. I am NEANDERTHAL. :)

I'm quite happy with this...my ancestors of many generations came from that same Valley!

And I don't believe that 'out of africa' theory anyway. Never did!

I AM PART-NEANDERTHAL, AND PROUD OF IT!

From Wiki:

“Berserkers (or berserks) were Norse warriors who are reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk. Berserkers are attested in numerous Old Norse sources. Most historians believe that berserkers worked themselves into a rage before battle, but some think that they might have consumed drugged foods.”

I don’t think they have anything on the berserkers of yore!

When I was a kid, the paintings of Neanderthals looked like ape men. Now they look like my best friend back home.

The Neandertal Enigma
by James Shreeve

in local libraries
Frayer's own reading of the record reveals a number of overlooked traits that clearly and specifically link the Neandertals to the Cro-Magnons. One such trait is the shape of the opening of the nerve canal in the lower jaw, a spot where dentists often give a pain-blocking injection. In many Neandertal, the upper portion of the opening is covered by a broad bony ridge, a curious feature also carried by a significant number of Cro-Magnons. But none of the alleged 'ancestors of us all' fossils from Africa have it, and it is extremely rare in modern people outside Europe." [pp 126-127]
