I don't know anything about "lightening up". We all see natives
of Central America who get plenty of sunlight.

Well, that's one of the problems. If it's only 13kya then it's
about 1/4 of Africans time in Europe. But in order to cross over
just at the right time, they must have already been in Northern
Asia for a while too. And if some of the claims about people
being in America 60,000 years ago or so are correct, then we
have a lot of re-accounting to do.
