Homo sapiens are from 100,000 to 200,000 years old depending on who you read. About 50,000 years ago our ancestors lived in Africa began to travel all over the world. After watching the 13 parts of The Journey of Man-A Genetic Odyssey  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_xTG6VXlIQ , respond to this quote from Spencer Wells: “You and I, in fact everyone all over the world, we’re literally African under the skin; brothers and sisters separated by a mere two thousand generations. Old-fashioned concepts of race are not only socially divisive, but scientifically wrong”. What is the effect of this quote for international psychology? Discussions must have 2 posts.

I find it interesting that this quote can both unite people while simultaneously turning them against each other. My interpretation of Dr. Wells quote, why he said it and what I initially think he was trying to say (without thinking about how far people will dig into his words) is that we are all one. However, I can see how this quote and documentary can bring division to people through self realization, especially when people have been living a certain way of life for thousands of years – not even knowing they stem from the Saan “bushmen” tribe. Many people do things as a part of their culture and I can understand how it may be confusing to some to think that we all stem from this one tribe – yet we are completely different in the many things we practice or how different societies simply function in comparison to the bushmen. However, I do not think that Dr. Wells intended for people to question their identity so far as to think that what they do has no meaning since the bushmen tribe does not do the same things – even though we stemmed from them some 50,000 years ago. I think he is trying to discuss these societal ideas and things we have created such as “race” and how absurd it is that we divide each other based on minute things. Obviously, we all function, believe and do many different things, that is what makes us different. Ultimately, I think Wells was really trying to bring light to an international scale, which is pretty big in my opinion, that when it comes down to our DNA – the very thing that makes us – we are all one.
