    Charles Darwin emphasised that we are all part of the tree of life, in order to counter racism.

    And the sequencing of the genome shows that Charles was right, and that we all share the same digital genes of just four letters.

But seriously, the results are inconclusive in regards to how much genetic material Africans share with neanderthals, but from the one study it looks as if there is definitely a weaker link than with asians or europeans. If they do find it to be the case that Africans by and large don't share neanderthal genes, then it'd be a great kick in Darwin's racist ignorant ass.
    neanderthals didnt live in africa and black people didnt live outside africa. so i dont think black people share any genetic material with neanderthals

    Not surprising at all. From what i know of the topic the Neanderthals weren't as extreme as a separate species. I recall hearing that there was definite trading between Neanderthals and Cro Magnons.

    Simply considering geographic distribution, it'd be a plausible conclusion. Still inconclusive as of yet though.

    You realize that the vast majority of black people in the USA and Europe have caucasian ancestry.

    Even a lot of ones in African do, thanks in large part to he Arabs, but then later because of colonialists.

    Real black people?

    Could you explain what that is?

    As for the initial point of reference, you pretty much have to admit that soccer player probably has neanderthal genes at this point, since it's unlikely that he is some ancestrally pristine "real black person".
