Pretty much everyone outside of Africa has some Neanderthal DNA, be they dark or light. It's really only Africa that doesn't. And plenty of areas with plenty of Neanderthal population are not pale as northern Europeans are either. Like southern Europe and the Middle East.
"But the people of Tasmania were there as long or even longer than anatomically modern humans have been in Europe, and they were pitch black."
You seem to be under the impression that New Zealand and Tasmania have the same climate as central/northern/eastern Europe. They don't.
