Where the white women at

They're in Europe, Northern Europe specifically. Interesting map, which quickly illustrates that white people are a small minority of human population.

It's important to remember that skin color is a relatively recent adaptation - all humans originally came from East Africa, and spread across the world. Those that migrated to northern climates became paler, due to the genetic advantage of pale skin absorbing more sunlight in conditions where sunlight can be scarce. Darker skin makes more evolutionary sense in environments with more and stronger sunlight.

What is fascinating going forward is that while those evolutionary conditions are still present, our society has far surpassed their influence. Global travel is a reality, and far, far, far more people of different skin color types have kids than in the past.

We're swiftly moving towards our collective mocha future. And with the coming climate issues, this might all be for the good.
