Are Africans A Different Subspecies?

Recommended Posts

Are Africans A Different Subspecies? | Tara McCarthy

Note: The skull outlines shown here represent a Neanderthal vs. an African Hominid, not the skulls of a modern non-African vs. a modern African, although we do see differences in those two skull types. Subspecies are loosely defined by taxonomists as groups within a species that can be recognized to percentages usually ranging from 80 to 95%. We can tell with more than 95% accuracy Whites from Blacks.

There is a widespread feeling that the word “race” indicates something undesirable and that it should be left out of all discussions. This leads to such statements as “there are no human races.” 
Those who subscribe to this opinion are obviously ignorant of modern biology. Races are not something specifically human; races occur in a large percentage of species of animals. You can read in every textbook on evolution that geographic races of animals, when isolated from other races of their species, may in due time become new species.
