    It is believed that the different races developed as a reaction to a group’s environment; the various features helped aid in survival. This makes sense, but what is confusing to me, is why our racial features are not changing now in relation to environment. For example, if black people (whose racial features provided protection in hot environments) moved to a cold environment, their features don’t change. In the reverse if white or Asian people (who originated in cold environents) move to hot environments, their features don’t change. How long did it take for people to actually develop these characteristics, and are we still adapting to our environment a little bit and just don’t know it? I mean, will people have different features 1,000 years from now as a result of an adaptation of their environment?
