This is a very, very brief summary/generalisation of the evolution of the original races. It is just designed to give a very quick to read idea of how we all came to be today.
The originalScandinavian race was the blonde haired, blue eyed, white skinned race (light featured) that originated from Scandinavia some 45,000 to 50,000 years ago.
The Scandinavian race evolved from the Black African race that migrated out of Africa some 125,000 years ago and settled in Scandinavia. 80,000 years of total isolation in Scandinavia and the original Black Africans evolved to the originalScandinavians.
The Indian race also evolved from the Black African race that migrated out of Africa and then settled in India. Tens of thousands of years of isolation in India and the original Black Africans evolved to the original Indians. (Indian = dark hair, dark eyes, dark skin, dark featured) The Oriental race also evolved from the Black African race that migrated out of Africa and then settled in Far East Asia. Tens of thousands of years of isolation in Far East Asia and the original Black Africans evolved to the original Orientals.(Oriental = dark hair, dark eyes, dark skin, dark featured) The Australian Aboriginal race also evolved from the Black African race that migrated out of Africa and then settled in Australia. Tens of thousands of years of isolation in Australia and the original Black Africans evolved to the original Australian Aboriginals.(Australian Aboriginal = dark hair, dark eyes, dark skin, dark featured) 45,000 years ago there was a lot of movement as the Ice-Age pushed theseScandinavians out of Scandinavia. TheseScandinavianspread out through Europe and into Asia and in Asia they mixed with the Indians, this formed the Arabic peoples (Indo-Scandinavians).
TheScandinavians also migrated into Far East Asia and mixed with the Orientals forming the Korean/Chinese/Japanese types. Arabic peoples moved back West into North Africa and then up into Spain, Italy and Greece mixing with theScandinavians that had originally settled there, this formed the original Spanish, Italian and Greek ethnicities. Oriental Scandinavians also moved back West and mixed with the original Scandinavians in Europe forming what we now know as ‘Slavic’ types. What with brown hair and brown eyes being dominant over blonde hair and blue eyes moreScandinavians in Europe became darker. Yes, Europeans are mostlyScandinavianrace with varying amounts of Indian race and Oriental race in them which gives many these darker features.

Race in this context means evolved in total isolation for tens of thousands of years, pure 'like' Scandinavians as we know them today are not a race because they are tainted with foreign genome if you can see what i mean? Today Scandinavians are an 'ethnicity' rather than a race, what i am saying in the beginning 45,000 years ago Scandinavians were a race because they were pure they all had totally blonde hair and blue eyes and white skin and there was no one else like them on the planet! The orientals were dark skinned back 45,000 years ago today oriental are often light skinned as they have scandinavian genome in them (they are part Scandinavian) white skin is genetically dominant over dark skin, do you agree?
You are right NoNuke I did leave out the mixing with the Neanderthals at various points in our evolution. There will be things that have evolved independently of our isolated human groups but i still think it mostly is due to those original 'five root races' for us being the way we are today.
I personally cannot see any other way to explain why europeans have somewhat darker features down South other than the explanation that 'they are more indian 'racially'!
If what I am saying is not true then how come so many Arabic peoples and many Chinese type peoples have light skin even when they come from very sunny climates? It clearly is because light skin is dominant over dark skin. They are mixed race.
Why would a people who evolved in the baking deserts of Asia have evolved light skin. The answer is they didn't evolve there. They are a mix of the original Scandinavian race and the original Indian race!
