Wednesday/ we are all ‘Africans’

I see Meryl Streep’s remark ‘We are all Africans’ (she was responding to diversity questions at the Berlin Film Festival, and questions as to why, for the second year in a row, the Oscar nominations failed to recognize any minority actors), was panned .. the criticism being that it is a non-answer.  That’s like saying ‘We are all humans’, which is true. Check out this fascinating picture that shows how modern humans migrated all over the continents, starting out in Africa.  A bigger version of the picture is here.
