The concept of race

The concept of race

The concept of race has been widely propagated since Carl Linnaeus published Systema Naturae in 1735.

The father of modern taxonomy proposed four distinct racial groups for human beings—American, European, Asian, and African—that encompassed not only physical characteristics and geographic origin, but also personality traits, skills, and abilities.

This classification has become institutionalized with little awareness that the variable “race” is not actually a biological phenomenon: there is more genetic variation within these racial groups than across them.

Rather, the notion of race is a social construct.

Despite a pervasive belief that race represents clear-cut and genetically distinct groups of people, there is no evidence that it is associated with any personality traits, skills, or abilities.

The US Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines race as a set of self-identified racial/ethnic classifications, and many researchers argue that it is a crude tool in medical genetics.

Agelbert NOTE: Do most Americans, with or without scientific training, understand this REALITY about the NON-SCIENTIFIC basis for assigning traits (positive or negative), innate skills (or the LACK of them) and intelligence (or the LACK of it) according to Carl Linnaeus's 1735 bull**** bigotry?

Does Kunstler understand this?

I don't think so.

Shame on Kunstler and all the willfully ignorant ****S that wish to make artificial distinctions in humans in order to position their tribe on a higher level in the social pecking order. You evil bastards are helping destroy our future by fostering strife born of mendacious and vicious prejudicial disdain of fellow humans just because they look a little different.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
