that the #white
(#caucasian) race is derived from #dravidian
#albinos, is documented in the findings from genetic analysis of y-dna haplogroup "r". origins of y-dna haplogroup "r"
according to the genographic project conducted by the national geographic society, haplogroup r2a arose about 25,000 years ago in central asia and its members migrated southward as part of the second major wave of human migration into india.
according to sengupta et al. (2006), uncertainty neutralizes previous conclusions that the intrusion of hgs r1a1 and r2 [now r-m124] from the northwest in dravidian-speaking southern tribes is attributable to a single recent event. rather, these hgs contain considerable demographic complexity, as implied by their high haplotype diversity. specifically, they could have actually arrived in southern india from a southwestern asian source region multiple times, with some episodes considerably earlier than others.
the following is manoukian's (2006) summary of the findings of the genographic project conducted by the national geographic society and directed by spencer wells (2001): haplogroup r, the ancestral clade to r1 and r2, appeared on the central asian steppes around 35,000 to 30,000 years ago.
r1, sister clade to r2, moved to the west (read europe) from the central asian steppes around 35,000 to 30,000 years ago. r1 pockets were established, from where r1a and r1b emerged.
r2a [r-m124] made its first entry into the indian sub-continent around 25,000 years ago. the routes taken are not clear, although the indus and ganges rivers are possible theories put forward. there could, of course, have been multiple immigrations of this haplogroup into the indian sub-continent, both in the paleolithic and the neolithic
