Surprising Facts About Native People in Different Countries

We humans are everywhere in different races based on our genetic factors. Generally, people living in hotter places tend to be darker than people living in colder regions due to heat effect on skin. But, actually that’s not true. It is because humans have migrated from one region to another region in search of habitat. This has caused to mix different races together.
