Your Family May Once Have Been A Different Color

Your Family May Once Have Been A Different Color is a story by Robert Krulwich from Morning Edition. It's about how, according to Nina Jablonski (head of the Penn State Department of Anthropology), skin color can change over relatively few generations, without intermarriage.

She estimates 100 generations or less. I have no idea whether this is credible or not, but it certainly is interesting.

NPR's Morning Edition is just ripe for crazy stories that may or may not be in any way credible, make you think, "Huh, I wonder how long somebody spent researching that."
