Conclusions
Overall, we demonstrate that global skin colour, between and within continental groups, can be accurately predicted from DNA using a set of 36 carefully selected SNPs from 16 genes. The DNA markers and the model introduced here deliver prediction accuracies already high enough for prac- tical applications, although for the three different light skin colour categories, they may be further improved with addi tional (but currently unknown) SNP predictors once identi- fied via future GWAS’s. We envision that if combined with the previously established eye and hair colour predicting SNPs, such as those from the IrisPlex and HIrisPlex sy tems, all three human pigmentation traits can be reliably predicted from DNA in future forensic and anthropological applications.

The color categories are obviously racist. In the illustration we find 12 different colors for Eurasians and color associated with Blacks. This analysis is racist because there is not just one skin color for Blacks.

The Proof-of-principle illustration makes it clear that this test is just another way to promote White Supremacy. The idea that Africans possess only one color while Eurasians have 12 different colors is obviously Racist.

They've made racism into a science centuries ago. Sometimes it goes down a bit and then it pops up again at the surface.

For this reason they love to hold a monopoly on "science".


12-Nigeria, 14-Nigeria. I mean really?

The diversity in West Africa is larger than what is shown by this paper.
