What is collectively referred to as “Humanity” seems very diverse in its phenotypes:
Phenotypes result from the expression of an organism’s genes as well as the influence of environmental factors and the interactions between the two.
The genotype of an organism is the inherited instructions it carries within its genetic code. Not all organisms with the same genotype look or act the same way because appearance and behavior are modified by environmental and developmental conditions. Likewise, not all organisms that look alike necessarily have the same genotype.
While it is considered “progressive” to proclaim that “the only race is the Human Race”, there is now a question as to whether all the members of this so-called singular “human race” are even descended from the same genomic “species.”
Today, some scientists consider “the Human Race” to be more of a collection of descendants from different Hominidae—rather than a singular homogeneous group (genus and species); and recent DNA test results seem to support the concept.
However, for over 200 years, any theory that suggested that there was—or are—any significant “differences” between the “races” of Man were met with condemnation (by various social and political groups) as being “racist.”
However, could this “different species within “Humanity theory” explain why the behavior of “modern humans” still runs the gamut from “inhuman” to “altruistic”? …or possibly explain why some ethno-cultural groups are more “successful” in the modern world than others?

Driven by the natural instinct for self-survival—and the survival of one’s genetic offspring—it was beneficial for hominids to form close social groups based on kinship. Within a single geographically-defined area, the close affiliation of these kinship groups evolved into a common “tribe.”
In order to increase the survivability (and fitness) of “the tribe”—as well as its individual members—it was natural for tribal groups to interact with non-related tribes. [If for no other reason, it served the propose of increasing the genetic pool of a tribe.] These interactions between tribes (flocks) was the result of migration (exploration), or natural expansion (overpopulation of an area).
Tribes that had a greater “group fitness” flourished in the world, and eventually formed cultural societies.
