In most of the Sci Fi movies I have seen where a human is given the honor of representing Earth to an alien species, they are invariably a male Anglo
Saxon – ie: Caucasian.
But in reality, the racial demographics of the earth are: 8% White and 92% Non-White. So let’s be honest, if one human was to truly represent the

non white skin.
So in the event that we make contact with a new species, who should be the representation of all humans? I am not talking about the greatest mind,
the best leader or the most charismatic – I am purely looking at physiology.
