World Skin Color Map Reveals Truth About Races

Here’s proof to my long-cherished theory that skin color is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the Equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening. And this is the thing some people hate other people over…

The conlusion of the study by George Chalpin referenced on the above map is that skin coloration in indigenous peoples is strongly related to levels of ultraviolet radiation (UVR). The researchers investigated the relationships of skin reflectance to seasonal UVR levels and other environmental variables, with the aim of determining which variables contributed most significantly to skin reflectance.

The UVR data recorded by satellite were combined with environmental variables and data on human skin reflectance in a geographic information system (GIS). These were then analyzed visually and statistically through exploratory data analysis, correlation analysis, principal components analysis, least-squares regression analysis, and nonlinear techniques.

The main finding of the study was that the evolution of skin reflectance could be almost fully modeled as a linear effect of UVR in the autumn alone. This linear model needs only minor modification, by the introduction of terms for the maximum amount of UVR, and for summer precipitation and winter precipitation, to account for almost all the variation in skin reflectance.

This map indeed proves that what people have termed as “race” is only about the amount of sunshine we get as humans, nothing more.


  1. Two other points:
    The hair on persons of African descent is more wiry. The theory is that this protects the scalp and the brain from insects which thrive in greater numbers in hotter climates.
    Also nostrils tend to be wider when there is more humidity and less oxygen. These are adaptations for survival.

  2. What would be educational in regards to race and “white conquest” would be a series of maps showing skin color as we came out of Africa, then into the era of conquest and colonialization of the indigenous races around the globe, and up to current times. This would show that the “Anglo-Saxon” values that folks like Marjorie Taylor Greene are espousing are simply White Supremacist, or even White Conquest values.

  3. The map seems misleading as the indigenous people of Australia were 200 years ago spread all over Australia. If you see a map of aboriginal tribes you will see they occupied the whole country and they all had dark skin. In the north of Australia it is very hot and in the south it is very cold e.g. tasmania. So I am not convinced that people become lighter/whiter if they lived further away from the equator.

  4. This doesn’t seem accurate as it says it is the predicted skin color due to multiple environmental factors. That doesn’t say what the actual skin color is. You’re using the reasoning to predict evidence instead of the other way around

  5. Actually, the original human race which was from the equator is black. Human lost the colour as they moved north…so the skin did not “darken” which implies the original colour is white…rather, the skin “whitened” as we moved away from the equator.

    • Another theory us that the “white” gene, with blue eyes etc, comes from the Neanderthals that originated in the northern region. Humans have on average 3 to 5% of Neanderthal gene. This is the most credible theory.

      • White Gene? The gene for blue eyes came much later than Neanderthals. There is no evidence that Neanderthal had blue eyes, ,or white skin.
