There are many misconceptions about race in our modern day world, and in fact for the last few centuries of scientific work.
The belief that people belong to different races, and that some are better than others has caused some of the worst problems in human history, from hate crimes to genocide, race is a major player in many cultures around the world.
But what does it mean? Science points to the idea that there is little to no differences between the populations of modern day humans on Earth.
Of course there is a range of fair modern variation, but as long as we fit into that, we all belong to the same species, H. sapiens. While we do look different, and we do things differently, these differences are caused by culture, and ecological niches, the needs of the environment, and the ways in which people interact with it.
This is but a brief introduction to race, why it doesn’t exist, and how we can overcome some of the systemic problems of race and racism.
