Give our ancestors credit.  When they wanted some strange they got some STRANGE.

There was no conscious decision to m ate with Neanderthals to improve our immune systems. It's because of that top-shelf redhead Neanderthal pussy.

All of you modern humans are hating on a species you know nothing about, you all must have been pencil-necked pizza-faced agriculturalists in the Domestication Club, Cro-Magnons get access to more top-shelf Neanderthal than you could shake a stick at, and the relationships you make in the Ice Age will last you a lifetime.

Never stick your dick in crazy.

Never stick your dick in Neanderthal.

Same thing, different epochs.

Neanderthals were better people than we are.  We suck compared to neanderthals. They were smarter than us, more compassionate and they could all sing two part harmonies all by themselves.

We're better at farkin and killin tho, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

FTA: "Studies have also already been published which show that humans outside of Africa are more vulnerable to Type 2 diabetes, and that is because we bred with Neanderthals, while those who stayed inside Africa didn't."

I wonder what the white supremacists think of that, the Africans are "purer humans" than the rest of humanity. It's just as logical as racism.

I think that's the part where racists point out the vulnerability of Africans to manacles, menthol cigarettes, and malt liquor, then declare a break to drink whiskey at the KKK lodge.

People who believe in racial superiority of whatever stripe are immune to logical analysis of their beliefs.

What this doesn't explain is higher rates of diabetes among Africans eating the American diet than whites or Asians.  It also doesn't explain their increased susceptibility to lung cancer when they smoke, despite having just about 0 Neanderthal DNA.

In white supremacist ideology whites are the descendents of Adam and Eve from the bible and the actual ancient israelites, the JEWS and middle easterners are the descendents of Satan and Eve and the original of thier line is Cain, and Blacks and Asians are "mud people" that evolved from monkeys just like evolution said.

Not saying I agree just that is what they seriously think.

Probably not much, as it's not true. Even TFA (which is really poor, by the by) mentions that sub-Saharan Africans had their own breeding with other hominins.

Everyone did it. It was the style at the time.

Kinda strange how this kind of thinking is (rightfully) considered crazy, but it is in fact the kind of thinking (Adam and Eve were the first "white" people) that led to the term "Caucasian" referring to white people, which many Americans still embrace.

I imagine it's more likely something similar to what humans have done throughout history: raid/conquer your town and rape your women because they could

You could look for some of the viler rants on racial superiority and miscegenation.

Negros have often been regarded as beast-like intermediates between apes and true humans, and possibly created before Adam and Eve. If the racists want to update to an African origin of humanity (and why should they) they can always claim that the smarter humans escaped while those left behind interbred with apes. Don't you know that AIDS was transferred from monkeys to humans because Africans were farking chimpanzees?

Some think that Europeans are smarter than Africans because they mated with Neanderthals

This. They believe that Europeans and Asian humans who have Neanderthal genes in them benefit from whatever Neanderthal genetic left overs. I think higher intellect is one that they try to cite. I dunno.
