For the past decade, scientists have thought that DNA sequences from Neanderthals were found only in non-African populations. Neanderthals, a human species that died out around 40,000 years ago, lived mainly in Europe and parts of Asia.

As Homo sapiens migrated from Africa into Europe and Asia some 70,000 years ago, the two species mingled. Roughly 2% of the genomes of modern European and Asian populations is inherited from Neanderthals. But sub-Saharan Africans, it was believed, possessed no Neanderthal DNA.

A new study shows this is not true. Sub-Saharan populations do carry Neanderthal DNA. This is likely to have come not directly from Neanderthals in Africa but from ancient Europeans migrating back into Africa over the last 20,000 years.

That explains Tories and Republicans, and why they don't like people of color. Laughing

Really? How does it explain when All people with political views will have this variance of DNA?

It was a joke. Didn't mean to interrupt your thread...but couldn't resist.

This is really fascinating, and to me it just shows how much people have been criss-crossing the globe ever since people existed.

Or, it could be extraterrestrials doing all the traveling.  It is alleged that they are doing genetic manipulation.  This is a claim brought out by Prometheus Films:

Contrary to the statement near the end of this video, DNA from Neanderthals has been found in modern humans.

There is also DNA in some Africans that isn't Denisovans/Neanderthal/or the Florensis peoples which hasn't shown up anywhere else so far but no fossil remains have been found so far.
