My God where do you read your history?!
Ainu were NOT Caucasian. This smacks of racist theory espoused by a American racist from 1950's. I forget his name now. The same guy who said Pre-Egyptians were also white!
The Ainu tribe was for sure white,before they mixed with Asians (Japanians looks "whiter" than other Asiatic peoples).And ancient Egyptians were also white.
Ainu are not white. They are a paleo Asian people called the Jomon. They are considered as related to the Australian aborigines. And were a part of the first wave of peoples who migrated out of Africa towards South East Asia. And then from there to N Asia such as Central Asia and then to Japan through Korea and also south to Australia from Indonesia. Evidence of such peoples have also been identified in the archaeological remains found in Tierra del fuego in South America.
Japanese are NOT "whiter" than other races. They are a mix of South East Asians and of an Asian race that crossed over to Japan from Korea (Yayoi people. Neo Asiatic people).
Japanese are therefore a mix of non-white races. They carry the M21 genetic marker, which is quite different from the European genetic marker. The preponderance of this genetic marker in the Japanese are similar to the amount found in Koreans. As such the Japanese are not "whiter" than other Asian races.
In fact many Japanese peoples migrated to their island from Korea when the Korean Baekche kingdom and Korean Gaya kingdon were invaded and destroyed by rhe Korean Koryo and Shilla kingdoms at the start of the common era.
In fact the Japanese imperial families are descended from Korean aristocrats from this period when they fled to Japan from Korea. And in 2002, Japan's emperor Akhito admitted that the Japanese imperial famliy was descended from Koreans.
Incidentally, Hungarians share similar haplogroups as found in Koreans, Japanese. Not because Koreans and Japanese have white genes, but in reverse. Hungarians share Asian haplogroups found in Koreans and Japanese.
As for the Egyptians they are not white either. They are a mix of pre-Dynastic Saharan peoples and those from the lower Nile. Egyptians carry a genetic marker that is different from European genetic markers and thus they are not white. I forget the specific genetic marker they carry, but it is completely different from the "white" gene and has been around in N Africa for at least 14,000 years.
