Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Might seem stupid but….

with one comment

My friend and I were having a rather interesting conversation the other day. It somehow ended with the ideas of cavemen. It then began to occur to me, why are cavemen typically seen as white individuals with a lot of facial hair? lol. I mean seriously, if mankind supposedly (theory) began in Africa, shouldn’t cavemen be represented as more African like? I mean, in a species as diverse as humans, the origins should be represented throughout all sectors-asian, black, hispanic. It probably seems ludicrous, but when considering the mental images of mankinds origin, I don’t think it started with the Flinstones haha.

  1. No, this doesn’t seem stupid at all. This is interesting because this is the very first time that I am actually realizing that even on the history channel, the species that we may have evolved from all do look very white. That is a direct contradiction to the “Out of Africa” theory. Nice catch though, I never payed attention to that!
