This is an absurd, unproven, contradictory assumption.

IF there was any "adaptation" going on [for which there is NO proof or
evidence], then humans in hot, sunny climates would have "adapted" to the
hot sun by having WHITE skin which reflected the sun's heat, whereas humans
in cold, cloudy climates would have "adapted" by having BLACK skin which
absorbed as much heat as it can.

And if the climate of Africa is what keeps niggers from even being able to
build a wheel, then why did Caucasians from Europe move there and build
factories, schools, libraries, roads, communications systems, governments,
that the dumb niggers of Africa can't even maintain now that the
colonialists have gone?  And why did Caucasians from Europe move to this
continent (which has an almost identical climate to Africa), and build even
better factories, schools, libraries, roads, communications systems,
governments, in less than 400 years, that the Indians who were supposedly
around 9,000 years STILL can't create on their own?

These differences are by design, not by accident.
