Ιn biology, race divides populations—based on genetic factors—within the same species, even though it’s a scientifically proven fact that all humans belong to the same species (Homo sapiens), and even to the same subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens. Despite the aforementioned undeniable facts, there are still very small genetic variations across the planet that engender diverse physical appearances, such as variations in skin color. As a result, humans have been divided socially and genetically into races for centuries now, even though the morphological variation among races is not indicative of major differences in DNA.
Furthermore, recent genetic studies have shown that skin color may drastically change in as few as one hundred generations as a result of environmental influences. The problem of racism, though, is a whole different thing from the distinction of races and usually refers to when a certain group of people uses the concept of race as an excuse to dominate and control other population groups. Racism is irrational and wrong since all people should be treated equally (despite their natural differences) and because there is no supreme race or inferior one. The 25 Eye-Opening Facts About Racism And Race below will convince every open-minded individual that we’re all God’s children.
