The hard fact is that what became modern humanity came out of Africa’s Rift Valley — pure black Aficans are we all at the start. From that time going forth, though a process of genetic mutation, other races came into being. This process has been further complicated by the mixing of the various mutated races.

The bottom line is that race has always been a process of new beginnings and a remixing of the established. To think that any of this natural marbleizing process is about genocide is ridiculous.
