As we harvest ever more human genomes one fact remains unshakeable: race does not exist
True in one definition. There’s different populations, with slightly different preponderances of different genes and that’s about it.
Barely a week goes by without some dispiriting tale of racism seeping into the public consciousness:
But in this modern world race as above and racism aren’t the same thing at all. At one end of the spectrum of what today defines as “racism” is the simple identification into ingroup and outgroup, which is a mark of pretty much all societies, not just human ones. At the other end we’ve got Galton’s nonsense.
At least part of the explanation for why racism exists is because we define to to exist, and given that that definition no longer relies upon genes and genes alone then obviously pointing out that the genetic explanation carries no water isn’t going to change the perception of that other form of “racism”.
