I worded that poorly


Just made a minor adjustment to my post. I think your assumptions are accurate- we do share a common ancestor. There seems to have been a school of thought that homo sapiens somehow actively wiped out or just out-survived Neanderthals. Another school of thought was that we inter-bred with them (multi-generational view). The former school more or less dominated until DNA testing proved that all humans outside of Africa have 2-3% Neanderthal. Again, this is my novice take on the old debate so trying to find some good books that will clarify things a bit.
