I, Neanderthal

Recent genetic research has proven that up to 4% genes in all non-African people (people of European, Asian and Middle Eastern ancestry since the first migration of Homo sapiens sapiens out of Africa) are indeed Neanderthal (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis), demonstrating that Modern Humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) and Neanderthals (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) did interbreed at some remote time in the past (probably before our chromosome 2 fused, giving us 46 chromosomes in contrast to the 48 chromosomes possessed by Neanderthals).
