Synopsis :
Basques are second level descendants of Neanderthals .
Discussion :
1.Rhesus factor .
Population data[edit]

The frequency of Rh factor blood types and the RhD neg allele gene differs in various populations.
Population data for the Rh D factor and the RhD neg allele[12]
Population            Rh(D) Neg          Rh(D) Pos              Rh(D) Neg alleles
Basque people            21–36%                   65%                          approx 60%
other Europeans         16%                        84%                      40%
African American        approx 7%       93%                        approx 26%
Native Americans       approx 1%       99%                             approx 10%
African descent           less 1%                   over 99%              3%
Asian                   less 1%                over 99%              1%

2. Chile
The frequency of the standard Rh factor percentage is very high (98.6 per cent) but not 100 per cent as in the data of North American investigators.

Miguel de Unamuno said: "There are at least two things that clearly can be attributed to Basques: the Society of Jesus and the Republic of Chile.[7] Chilean historian Luis Thayer Ojeda estimated that 45 per cent of immigrants to Chile in the 17th and 18th century were Basque.[8] Over 2.5 million Basque descendants live in Chile; the Basque have been a major influence in the country's cultural and economic development.

3. Basque term for Neanderthal ancestors : jentilak
The jentilak ('Giants'), on the other hand, are a legendary people which explains the disappearance of a people of Stone Age culture that used to live in the high lands and with no knowledge of the iron. Many legends about them tell that they were bigger and taller, with a great force, but were displaced by the ferrons, or workers of ironworks foundries, until their total fade-out. They were pagans, but one of them, Olentzero, accepted Christianity and became a sort of Basque Santa Claus. They gave name to several toponyms, asJentilbaratza.

4. Society[edit]
Matriarchy would be a natural form of societal power-structure in Rh+ to Rh-  interactions .
Who controls reproduction , controls the society . 

“Historically, Basque society can be described as being somewhat at odds with Roman and later Western European societal norms.
Strabo's account of the north of Spain in his Geographica makes a mention of "a sort of woman-rule—not at all a mark of civilization" (Hadington 1992), a first mention of the—for the period—unusual position of women. "Women could inherit and control property as well as officiate in churches. Combined with the issue of lingering pagan beliefs, this enraged the leaders of the Spanish Inquisition, perhaps leading to one of the largest witch hunts in the Basque town of Logroño in 1610".[19]
This preference for female dominance existed well into the 20th century:
...matrilineal inheritance laws, and agricultural work performed by women continued in Basque country until the early twentieth century. For more than a century, scholars have widely discussed the high status of Basque women in law codes, as well as their positions as judges, inheritors, and arbitrators through ante-Roman, medieval, and modern times. The system of laws governing succession in the French Basque region reflected total equality between the sexes. Up until the eve of the French Revolution, the Basque woman was truly ‘the mistress of the house', hereditary guardian, and head of the lineage.[20]
Although the kingdom of Navarre did adopt feudalism, most Basques also possessed unusual social institutions different from those of the rest of feudal Europe. Some aspects of this include the elizate tradition where local house-owners met in front of the church to elect a representative to send to the juntas and Juntas Generales (such as the Juntas Generales de Vizcaya or Guipúzcoa) which administered much larger areas. Another example was the fact that in the medieval period most land was owned by the farmers, not the Church or a king.[15][21]
5.The Neanderthals paddled everywhere . Were top dogs . But because they were Rh- , and homo saps were Rh+ , their genes got lost . Thus , Basques are second level Neanderthals . Similar culture , but the Rh- frequency fell below critical reserve levels (38%)

 The majority (58.7%) of R1b1b2 chromosomes from Europe were found to be ancestral for both U106 and U152 (paragroup R1b1b2*) and showed a frequency cline from western to eastern Europe. 

Finally, several ancient DNA samples have been recovered and amplified from Palaeolithic sites in the Basque region. The collection of mtDNA haplogroups sampled there differed significantly compared to their modern frequencies. The authors concluded that there is "discontinuity" between ancient and modern Basques.[45]
Thus, while Basques (like all Europeans) harbour some very archaic lineages (such as mtDNA Hg U8a),[46] they are not of "undiluted Palaeolithic ancestry", nor are they ancestral to large parts of western Europe. Rather, their genetic distinctiveness is a result of centuries of low population size, genetic drift and endogamy.[45]

6.Beautiful women .
Being alpha males , Neanderthals attracted the most beautiful women (set the standard) . Hence the correlation Red hair and beauty .
Though many red heads dye their hair blonde to fit fashion . Humans . Go figure .

7.Red-haired giants
8. Neanderthaler’s delight .
And here I thought the Dutch biggest average height was due to nutrition .
They just have a very large percentage of red heads . Neanderthal descent .

Notice the very tall women at the bottom left . Typical Neanderthal descendant . Tall , redheaded , pretty , big head , long torso , short legs , short arms .
She takes pains to disguise the short legs , but measure the length of the femur against the torso .
Do not arm wrestle her . She will beat you . Also packs a hair-trigger temper .

9.Summary :
If it wasn’t for the Rhesus factor , we would all be Neanderthals now .
