The word race itself is modern and was used in the sense of “nation, ethnic group” during the 16th to 19th centuries and acquired its modern meaning in the field of physical anthropology only from the mid-19th century.
The world population can be divided into 4 major races, namely white/Caucasian, Mongoloid/Asian, Negroid/Black, and Australoid.
The Sandawe are descended from some of the first humans and shared a common ancestor with the San tribe, who are believed to be the oldest race in the world.
The idea of “race” began to evolve in the late 17th century, after the beginning of European exploration and colonization, as a folk ideology about human differences associated with the different populations—Europeans, Amerindians, and Africans—brought together in the New World.
There are basically two Oceanian American groups, that well represent the racial and cultural population of Oceania: Euro-Oceanian Americans (Australian Americans and New Zealand Americans) and the indigenous peoples of Oceania in the United States or Pacific Islander Americans (Chamorro Americans, Samoan Americans, …
The human genome is mostly the same in all people. But there are variations across the genome. This genetic variation accounts for about 0.001 percent of each person’s DNA and contributes to differences in appearance and health. People who are closely related have more similar DNA.
The world’s largest ethnic group is Han Chinese, with Mandarin being the world’s most spoken language in terms of native speakers.
These early humans probably had pale skin, much like humans’ closest living relative, the chimpanzee, which is white under its fur. Around 1.2 million to 1.8 million years ago, early Homo sapiens evolved dark skin.
Now, a team of researchers, led by Cosimo Posth from the University of Tübingen in Germany, analysed the DNA of an ancient skull belonging to a female individual called Zlatý kůň and found that she lived around 47,000 – 43,000 years ago – possibly the oldest genome identified to date.
With the exception of Neanderthals, they had smaller skulls than we did. And those skulls were often more of an oblong than a sphere like ours is, with broad noses and large nostrils. Most ancient humans had jaws that were considerably more robust than ours, too, likely a reflection of their hardy diets.
Genetic distance estimates suggest that among the three major races of man the first divergence occurred about 120,000 years ago between Negroid and a group of Caucasoid and Mongoloid and then the latter group split into Caucasoid and Mongoloid around 60,000 years ago.

“According to the overall statistics, the Human race is the strongest one in WC3 and Undead is the weakest. Human players won 52.4% of maps, followed by Night Elf with a 50.5% ratio.
In 2020, the largest cities which had a Black majority were Detroit, Michigan (population 639K), Memphis, Tennessee (population 633K), Baltimore, Maryland (population 586K), New Orleans, Louisiana (population 384K), and Cleveland, Ohio (population 373K).
This presentation will first review racial differences in fracture risk by sex that provide evidence to support the hypothesis that blacks have stronger bones than whites and then present data from two longitudinal observational cohort studies that demonstrate that bone mineral density, an estimate of bone mass that is …
A 2012 United Nations report summarized 65 different estimated maximum sustainable population sizes and the most common estimate was 8 billion. Advocates of reduced population often put forward much lower numbers. Paul R. Ehrlich stated in 2018 that the optimum population is between 1.5 and 2 billion.
