How Many Monkeys?

I am not a scientist. I am just a writer that is pretty much ignorant of science. At the same time, I am a writer that is very curious about the evolution of Homo sapiens. I hope I don’t get into any trouble with society when I express my curiosity about anthropology. I am a convinced believer in the big bang that began our planet. When I was a child, I believed that the evolution of people began as one race and gradually developed apart.

It occurs to me that the different races are not just black and white as we most often refer to them. There are Asians, Indians, Semitics, and more.

I see several characteristics in black people that are more than colour of skin and texture of hair. Often there are structural differences that cause most white people to walk a different gait of many black people. Obviously evolution has created characteristics like the wider nose and more exposed lips.

Black friends have told me that to black people, white people smell like wet dogs. To me, black people smell like people, so I just feel apologetic to black people for the smell. It is what it is, and we have nature to thank for it. Perhaps black people evolved from a monkey that was different from the monkey for white people. Even among white societies, some have blonde hair, some have brown hair and some even have red or black hair.

There are Asians that have skin tone, eye shape and physical stature that is different from white or black. Often, Asians have slight builds, thick, black, straight hair and eye shapes unlike black or white races. Did Asians come from a third monkey race?

Eskimo people, Seminole people, North American native peoples, and segments among all the races have some characteristics similar to each other. At the same time, there are characteristics to the various races that are totally dissimilar. It just makes me wonder; how many kinds of monkeys might there have been a few million years ago? Somehow, we all got to 2017 together. I wonder what evolution will continue to do to us.
