      People from different cultures do, and would further intergrate well, if the naive intolerance you and other backward thinking people (eg Isis, kkk, Britain first) seem to possess was eliminated.

      It is time for the world to wake up. People are people.
      if only it was that simple , think you need to wake up to reality.

      To you, predictably. That's not a tan, that's his pigment. But you know that
      I think his blue eyes are very significant.

      His pigment isn't anything special.

      Plenty of brown skinned Caucasoids about. But you know that.

      10,000 years is not very long in evolutionary terms, so turning from black to white seems unlikely in that time-span. Especially as we had been separated from mainland europe for 20,000 years before that by the melting ice-caps, which would have hindered migration.

      It's a no from me.
      Evolution works quickly, slowly or unevenly depending on the circumstances. Skin pigmentation in modern humans can change rapidly (even in a single generation) thanks to inherent genetic variation. The speed of evolutionary change is influenced by (1) environmental stimuli - in this case particularly levels of UV radiation and the need to synthesise Vitamin D - and (2) by the fitness advantages bestowed by change. 10,000 years would be more than enough time to see a change from 'black' to 'white' - it's not possible to say exactly how long this might have taken in Britain at this period, but it's generally considered as a rule of thumb that 100 generations (say, 2500-3000 years) would be enough, and if selective pressure were high it could in fact happen more quickly.

      Incidentally, the final separation of Britain from continental Europe was about 8000 years ago.

      Do you have any idea how insanely paranoid you sound?

      Yes I get that, Im not claiming an organised conspiracy, just bad habits allowed to fester.

      Hasn't the overbite developed since we started using cutlery in a mere few hundred years?
