The difference is that I know why my skin is white and some others aren't and I know why it doesn't matter.  What saddens me is why others don't.

Your skin color does matter, if you are near the equator, or nearer the poles.  But our whiteness is due to the adaptation of the Neanderthals.

Evidence required. Best explanation for light skin color is modern human adaptation to Central Asia light-lack.

Does it matter, which part of N Hemisphere we are talking about.  There were Neanderthals as far east as Central Asia.  Denisovans were a much smaller range of habitat.
