Interesting article, but there are reasoning errors (non-sequiturs for example) and I think the author is mistaken.

Teilhard de Chardin's view, if correctly represented, is consistent with his Church's teaching "that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ"; like members of one body.

It's not a case of evolving though; newborn babies for millenia have always been like that in essence.

Evolution is not about survival of the fittest; it's about pattern-comparison and pattern-conservation, self-reference and self-determination. Thus the dark-skinned man has the best colour-pattern match for tropical climate sunshine; the pale-skinned man has the best colour pattern-match for low-sunshine-level lattitudes. No cause for racism from evolution there.
