Nope wrong. Neanderthals contributing genes for light skin is a scientific fact as recent studies have shown. Plus the 6,000 year old guy wasn't as 'dark' as you falsely believe he was given he carried numerous light skin genes that are still found in modern Europeans to this day.

You cherry picking of quotes that just say Cro-Magnons were homosapiens do not support your Afrocentric claims that they were 'black Africans'. In fact Bar-Yosef clearly gives them a Middle Eastern origins and intermixing along side Neanderthals in the Middle East; while
Brace shows they have the most similarities with Northern Europeans and LEAST similarities with Sub Saharan Africans.
"For much of his academic career, Bar-Yosef's focus has been the Stone Age - known as the Paleolithic - when early Homo sapiens went by the name Cro-Magnon and lived side by side with a human cousin, the Neanderthal.
It is this mix of human species and the later departure of Cro-Magnon man out of the Middle East to colonize Neanderthal-dominated Europe that fascinates Bar-Yosef."
"I was able to get just under 20 measurements on Cro Magnon of the two dozen data set I have used to compare populations in the world and the statistics showed convincingly that while Cro Magnon does not tie in with the recent French, IT DOES INDEED TIE CLOSELY WITH OUR ENGLISH AND SCANDINAVIAN SAMPLES.

The history of human populations can be retraced by studying the archaeological and anthropological record, but also by examining the current distribution of genetic markers, such as the maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA. Ancient DNA research allows the retrieval of DNA from ancient skeletal remains and contributes to the reconstruction of the human population history through the comparison of ancient and present-day genetic data. Here, we analysed the mitochondrial DNA of prehistoric remains from archaeological sites dated to 7,500 and 3,500 years Before Present. These sites are located in North East Europe, a region that displays a significant cultural and linguistic diversity today but for which no ancient human DNA was available before. We show that prehistoric hunter-gatherers of North East Europe were genetically similar to other European foragers. We also detected a prehistoric genetic input from Siberia, followed by migrations from Western Europe into North East Europe. Our research contributes to the understanding of the origins and past dynamics of human population in Europe.

Coalescent simulations

In coalescent simulation analyses we considered the ancient populations of aUzPo, aBOO, Central/East/Scandinavian European hunter-gatherers (aHG [12],[14], aPWC [13]), and the modern populations of NEE, CE, and Saami (saa). Population statistics (haplotype diversity and fixation indexes, FST) for the ancient and extant populations were calculated in Arlequin version 3.11 (Table 2,[91]).

Oh and derived alleles in IRF4 are associated with fair skin and light/BLUE eye color which he had.
So how dark was his skin, according to you eurocentrics? LOL

Red hair is an African mutation.... It is not Eurasian. Here is the link where this quote came from...... http://hubpages.com/hub/Red-Hair-Blue-Eyes-an...
Read:

"Both African and non-African data suggest that the time to the most recent common ancestor is ª1 million years and that the age of the global 314 variant is 650,000 years. On this time scale, ages for the Eurasian distributed Val60Leu, Val92Met, and Arg163Gln variants are 250,000–100,000 years; the ages for African silent variants—Leu106Leu, Cys273Cys, and Phe300Phe—are 110,000–40,000 years. For the European red hair–associated Arg151Cys and Arg160Trp variants, we estimate an age of ª80,000 years; for Asp294His, and Ser316Ser, we estimate an age of <30,000 years. SDs are approximately half these expectations.

These ages are entirely compatible with age distributions estimated for African and non-African mutations in other nuclear genes (Harding et al. 1997; Zietkiewicz et al. 1998). The ages estimated for the Arg151Cys and Arg160Trp red hair–associated variants are consistent with a widespread European distribution, as we also observed."

It is widely assumed that genes that influence variation in skin and hair pigmentation are under selection. To date, the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) is the only gene identified that explains substantial phenotypic variance in human pigmentation. Here we investigate MC1R polymorphism in several populations, for evidence of selection. We conclude that MC1R is under strong functional constraint in Africa, where any diversion from eumelanin production (black pigmentation) appears to be evolutionarily deleterious. Although many of the MC1R amino acid variants observed in non-African populations do affect MC1R function and contribute to high levels of MC1R diversity in Europeans, we found no evidence, in either the magnitude or the patterns of diversity, for its enhancement by selection; rather, our analyses show that levels of MC1R polymorphism simply reflect neutral expectations under relaxation of strong functional constraint outside Africa." ~Evidence for Variable Selective Pressures at MC1R

Delusional Afrocentrcis hear 'darker' and automatically make an individual into a 'black african'.

They claimed that this 6,000 year old European carried partial ancestral haplotypes of SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. That means squat in what his skin color was and they even admit that they don't know his skin color. Not to mention many light skin people from Middle Easterners to Asians and Native Americans carry the ancestral versions of SLC24A5 and SLC45A2 and they sure as heck are still lighter skinned compared to Africans.

They found numerous derived alleles for light skin in him including Polymorphisms in the IRF4 genes that are associated with fair skin and light/blue eye color and are STILL common among modern Europeans today. People with lighter colored eyes (blue, green) have less melanin overall. They also found that he carried the derived genes associated with light color skin in TYRP1 and as well as in ASIP. He also carried genes for light skin color in derived APBA2 which is present at high frequencies in Europeans and Asians but NOT common in Africans.

The study showed this 6,000 year old European displays clear affinities with Northern Euros. Just because he did not carry the derived alleles for SLC24A5 and SLC45A2 doesn't mean squat since those genes were brought in by Neolithic Farmers such as the Stuttgart individual who DID carry the derived alleles for light skin in SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. They did carry though other derived genes for light skin. So Braña and Motala12 wasn't as 'dark' as some believe and they sure as heck were NOT 'black' as Afrocentrics stupidly have claimed.

It is an important point, for it shows that humanity's modern African origin does not imply derivation from people like current Africans, because these populations must have also changed through the impact of evolution over the past 100,000 years." ~ Chris Stringer, African Exodus

Anyway, actual metric shows cro magnons to be closer to Africans and Asians then to Europeans, as was cited before. The first Scandinavians looked more like Asians, as was shown in that picture. lol
Therefore.

Migrations into India “did occur, but rarely from western Eurasian populations.” There are low frequencies of the western Eurasian mtDNA types in both southern and northern India. Thus, the ‘caucasoid’ features of south Asians may best be considered ‘pre-caucasoid’— that is, part of a diverse north or north-east African gene pool that yielded separate origins for western Eurasian and southern Asian populations over 50,000 years ago.

"I was able to get just under 20 measurements on Cro Magnon of the two dozen data set I have used to compare populations in the world and the statistics showed convincingly that while Cro Magnon does not tie in with the recent French, IT DOES INDEED TIE CLOSELY WITH OUR ENGLISH AND SCANDINAVIAN SAMPLES. What we have been able to show is that the Upper Paleolithic and subsequent Mesolithic of northwest Europe simply developed there in situ out of Neanderthal precursors. We published some of this in Human Evolution 19(1):19-38 (2005) and in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 103(1):242-247 (2006). " ~ C. L. Brace 2005

Likely these unfixed alleles and transformed locus/ mutations became stable during the LMA, where the climate started to shift. As another poster stated, the alleles mentioned by you are relatively young.
Read:
"Both African and non-African data suggest that the time to the most recent common ancestor is ª1 million years and that the age of the global 314 variant is 650,000 years. On this time scale, ages for the Eurasian distributed Val60Leu, Val92Met, and Arg163Gln variants are 250,000–100,000 years; the ages for African silent variants—Leu106Leu, Cys273Cys, and Phe300Phe—are 110,000–40,000 years. For the European red hair–associated Arg151Cys and Arg160Trp variants, we estimate an age of ª80,000 years; for Asp294His, and Ser316Ser, we estimate an age of <30,000 years. SDs are approximately half these expectations.

These ages are entirely compatible with age distributions estimated for African and non-African mutations in other nuclear genes (Harding et al. 1997; Zietkiewicz et al. 1998). The ages estimated for the Arg151Cys and Arg160Trp red hair–associated variants are consistent with a widespread European distribution, as we also observed."

It is widely assumed that genes that influence variation in skin and hair pigmentation are under selection. To date, the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) is the only gene identified that explains substantial phenotypic variance in human pigmentation. Here we investigate MC1R polymorphism in several populations, for evidence of selection. We conclude that MC1R is under strong functional constraint in Africa, where any diversion from eumelanin production (black pigmentation) appears to be evolutionarily deleterious. Although many of the MC1R amino acid variants observed in non-African populations do affect MC1R function and contribute to high levels of MC1R diversity in Europeans, we found no evidence, in either the magnitude or the patterns of diversity, for its enhancement by selection; rather, our analyses show that levels of MC1R polymorphism simply reflect neutral expectations under relaxation of strong functional constraint outside Africa." ~Evidence for Variable Selective Pressures at MC1R

He sure as heck wasn't as dark as you Afrocentrics WISHED him to be since he already was carrying derived alleles for light skin that modern europeans still carry.
Is that your actual response, and rebuttal?! LOL

Let's get it clear. When mankind arose within Africa they had dark skin, thus is why mankind stayed within is because of the climate. Gradually as the climate outside of Africa reduced from cold the warmer mankind was able to expand. Thus Africans had dark skin, to how dark and-all is irrelevant, since light skin (brown) was also in Africans.

And if you read it over you'll realize that the authors clearly state Africa derived genes for these light skin in alleles. So , you need to stop fantasizing. You need to understand that Europe was settled by multiple migrations and also has replaced multiple settlements and populations during the course of history. Cro- Magnon's was one of them. modern Europeans also settled recently.

This mandible is the oldest human fossil uncovered from scientific excavations in Morocco. The discovery will help better define northern Africa's possible role in first populating southern Europe.

Are you seriously this much of an Afrocentric idiot? You do realize that many West Asians, East Asians and Native Americans carry the "African" ancestral haplotypes of SLC24A5 and SLC45A2 and still are NOT as dark as Africans? Oh no sorry you wouldn't know that cause your delusional Afrocentric head hears 'african' and you automatically make someone 'black'. What a clown.
All he claimed is that this 6,000 year old European carried partial ancestral haplotypes of SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. That means squat in what his skin color was and he even admit that they don't know his skin color.
All this focus is on these two alleles that only make up PARTIAL of skin color when they found numerous derived alleles for light skin in him including IRF4, TYRP1, ASIP and APBA2 which is present at high frequencies in Europeans and Asians but NOT common in Africans.
The study showed this 6,000 year old European displays clear affinities with Northern Euros. Just because he did not carry the derived alleles for SLC24A5 and SLC45A2 doesn't mean squat since he is Mesolithic European and those genes were brought in by Neolithic Farmers from the Near East like the Stuttgart individual who DID carry the derived alleles for light skin in SLC24A5 and SLC45A2.
He did carry though other derived genes for light skin. So Braña and Motala12 wasn't as 'dark' as some believe and they sure as heck were NOT 'black' as Afrocentrics stupidly have claimed.
You are amusing, and it's obvious you have something against dark skin.

Yet, the authors clearly stated African derived VERSIONS (alleles) you're able to create your very own delusions theory. LOL

Lalueza-Fox states: "However, the biggest surprise was to discover that this individual possessed >>>>African versions in the genes that determine the light pigmentation of the current Europeans,<<< which indicates that he had dark skin, although we can not know the exact shade."

NOONE HERE STATED A PARTICULAR COLOR COMPLEXION. BUT AFRICANS COME IN A VARIETY OF COLOR COMPLEXIONS. LOL

You've already posted this, as a matter of fact, I responded to that very outdated post.

Then, I responded by explaining to you why...and thus why another posters also already explained this to you.

The basal of these alleles is already within Africans, logically.
