At which point in evolution did human skin colour start to vary?


If we all evolved along the same path why do we have such a variety of skin colours? I am trying to pin point when this happened to try and work out why it is that is that in some cultures white skin is thought to be superior and more desirable than black skin?

    Than you for troubling to respond. It makes sense. In South Africa though, unfortunately, historically, the prejudice seems to have arisen based solely on skin colour...with no reference to skill or prowess.
