This European Dog Is The Most Vile Creature To Have Ever...

AFRICANGLOBE - He was the leader of a European country. A head of state with an immense amount of power. And he oversaw one of the most vile genocides that the world has ever seen. Yet we’re not talking about Adolf Hitler here. In fact, there’s a very real chance that you’ve never even heard this tyrant’s name before. During his reign he was responsible for the slaughter of more than 10 million people. He turned a chunk of Africa into his own personal slave plantation and killing ground, where he ruled with an iron fist.

AFRICANGLOBE - In December the Netherlands' version of Christmas, Sinterklaas, is welcomed with Santa Claus, chocolate, presents and... blacked up ‘elves’.

Africans Have Stronger Immune Systems Than Europeans – Thanks To Neanderthals

AFRICANGLOBE - The immune systems of Europeans were partly shaped by the introduction of new genetic variants through interbreeding between early European ancestors and Neanderthals. Strong evidence of selection on genes that control the immune response and that Europeans 'borrowed' some key regulatory variants from Neanderthals. These variants affect the way their immune systems respond to viral challenges, giving them a lower response to infection than those of African descent. One study suggests Americans of African descent have a stronger immune response to infection compared to Americans of European descent.
