Now that I've read all the negative comments I want to add my beliefs.
I don't readily subscribe to the out of Africa theory, and lately it's allowable to include pre-human generics when you talk about humans.
I've always suspected that we get our white skin from any of the 1000's of pre-human species. They were more like animals and therefore they would
separate into new species, whereas we've all but stopped. They were diverse and some degree of our diversity could be traced back to the location of
These pre-human species were about for at least a million years - all over the planet. We humans could have evolved anywhere, but the latest
migrations came from around Africa which is why we all have African DNA markers.
Rather than just red hair, why not add why skin? That would be an obvious conclusion. We take on some characteristics of our pre-human brothers, so
why not skin colour. In fact the red hair connection is much tougher to call.
