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. 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

  2. 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.
