    In Malaysia, there is a minority known as Negritoes. Negritoes were some of the original inhabitants of SE Asia and they are close relatives of the Australian aborigines They migrated there and the rest of southern Asia, including India, from Africa 60,000 years ago and they share a common ancestor with all other people around the world, including Europeans, north Asians and native Americans. They still look a lot like Africans, with dark skin and curly hair because SE Asia is not that different from African in terms of climate. In fact, the ancestor of the Chinese and many Indians were originally similar to the Australian aborigines and Negritoes in having dark skin and curly hair. Wearing clothes was not necessary so they retained their dark skin. The curly hair allow breezes to cool their head. People who are adapted to cold climates have straight hair because they don't need their head chilled by cold winds, and they have light skin because they wear clothes. Clothes block out harmful UV light, but it also blocks out the harmless UV light that is needed to make vitamin D and prevent rickets.Only if they evolve light skin will they avoid rickets, which can cause broken bones, deformed bones, even death.

    The Negritoes are also found in Thailand, the Adaman Islands off India and in the Philippines. Now they are minorities in most countries because after the Chinese invented agriculture about 10,000 years ago and they had a population explosion of sorts, and some of them (mostly men) then migrated to SE Asia and replaced most of the native populations, although they at first admixed with the dark-skinned natives. As people who look liked them increases in number they tend to choose wives and husbands more similar to themselves.

    There is no reason why SE Asians living in a hot climate, such as the Thai, Malays, Indonesians and Filippinos, should have cold-adapted traits such as light skin, thin lips, narrow and tall nose bridges, and straight hair, unless those traits were the result of cold-adapted northern Chinese migrating to SE Asia and admixing with the natives. Currently, most Malaysians, like most SE Asians, have Chinese ancestry, although they still retain some of the African traits, such as broad and flat noses, and full lips. You can often find SE Asians with straight hair, light skin but broad noses and full lips. They are a mix of the cold adapted Chinese and the original African migrants. Even in China itself, especially southern China, there are still a lot of people with mixed features. Some are still dark skinned for example,, even if they may have tall and narrow nose bridges.

    Neither. The Göttingen school of history was a group of historians associated with a particular style of historiography located at the University of Göttingen in the late 18th century. This group of historians played an important role in creating a "scientific" basis for historical research, and were also responsible for coining two fundamental groups of terminologies in scientific racism:

    Blumenbach and Meiners's color terminology for race: Caucasian or white race; Mongolian or yellow race; Malayan or brown race; Ethiopian or black race; and American or red race. The concept of a Malay race was originally proposed by the German physician Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (1752–1840), and classified as a brown race. Malay is a loose term used in the late 19th century and early 20th century to describe the Austronesian peoples or to categorize Austronesian speakers into a race.
