Early modern humans didn't abandon Africa leaving  only sub-human ape men behind. Most stayed in Africa. And the genes from the alternative branches were brought back to Africa, making Africans just as "advanced" as those on the outside.

There's something odd in the bolded part. As if the current African population doesn't consist of modern humans.
