First of all, not trying to be racist so if you're afraid you will be offended, simply move along to a different question.
So stating the obvious; black people are harder to see in the dark its just a fact, I'm not trying to be racist. So I was wondering since throughout the majority of human evolution most racial groups have only had eachother as mating, friend and foe options up until a couple of thousand years ago.
Therefore black people would have a more difficult time spotting a potential mate or enemy in the dark compared to white people for example who basically reflect the moonlight.
So I wonder if black people may have evolved better eyesight in the dark.
What's your personal opinion on this?

Well, that made me laugh, they might have better eyesight, who knows.
But I think seeing people in the dark is not a major activity you don't , you don't see people spending 2 hours trying to see black people in the dark, they switch on the light.
So I don't think it really affects the eyesight as much as you think it does.0
