result of fleeing from and isolating itself from the non-white races. Most likely a primitive act of self preservation as the result of being
exterminated by the non-white majority in previous ages.
This is so illogical. If anything, the fact that there are cultures that have remained primitive well into modern times -- whatever their race --
indicates *those* cultures have a propensity to "flee and isolate" themselves from other societies. The very fact that western civilization has
encroached on the majority of the world like a cancer -- mostly due to wars and a perverse need to conquer the world -- negates your argument
ETA: The reason why the actual numbers of white people may be smaller is probably because Europe isn't really as hospitable a climate as pretty much
everywhere else, so I doubt they bred as much as other cultures. Also, once conquering takes place, "races" begin to mix, and for *whatever* reason we
classify the dominant race in people as whatever non-white race they happen to be, even if they're more than one racial category.
That said, I second all the intelligent people who pointed out that whites (since it's clear you're not actually referring to Caucasians) didn't
generally live in remote areas like jungles or Africa, but rather throughout Europe, which has been conquered and conquered again by various
cultures/empires for millennia. Most modern empires that felt the need to conquer the world (because China didn't for some reason) sprang up in North
Africa, the Middle East and eventually Greece and Rome. Obviously, they were going to wipe out primitive Europeans first, since climate and geography
made it much more difficult to go out and conquer Africa or lands separated by oceans.
Anyways, I have a question. Why did Neanderthal man -- who lived mostly in what is now Europe and had red hair and white skin -- go extinct?
