Then I remembered the Cavalli Sforza illustration…
As someone said on another site..
“Top: Map of the Distribution of the Principal Modifications of Mankind” by Thomas H. Huxley, 1870.
Bottom: Computer-generated map of human genetic diversity by L. Luca Cavalli-Sforza, et al, 1994.
Despite being separated by over a century and being created with radically different visual methods and in very different ideological and scientific contexts, the two maps bear an uncanny similarity to each other
For someone who ‘doesn’t believe in race as a valid concept’, a lot of his work does seem to support it, and is often used by others to support it.
This seems like as good a place as any to post the twig map of racial relationships.
As you can see, West Africans And East Africans aren’t closely related at all. Other than skin tone, they cluster better with North Africans. (Also morhologically, they are hard to tell apart if you just have a skeleton).
