A friend of mine about to graduate with an anthropology degree told me that her professors no longer accept the use of the term race in any class papers, except in the all-encompassing "human race" sense. If more specific than that, "ancestry" or "heritage" is to be used. If not, points will be deducted for improper use of "race".


Good.

Scientifically proven we as in the human race have begun in Africa. And from Africa we migrated to other parts of the world. The sun does play a big part in skin color. But it takes a very long time like a million years for a skin complexion to change. So technically there is no race only a global positioning of where we are is how our skin complexion. Although it is also proven that Homo sapiens and Neanderthals have cohabited at one point and mates hence Europeans. And their lighter skin complexion

Ok so I recently saw the news and saw that some scientists have researched that there is no race, as in color. It's basically, our skin darkens to how hot the sun is. Like if your skin is dark it means that your skin is protecting it from the heat rays.. or something like that. So I thought about it. That does make sense.. in places like Africa, their skin is dark because the sun is really hot. I don't know if I'm explaining this right or clear enough but you should get the picture.

But then what really got me was when they said that everyone was from Africa and eventually migrated to other places.. I doubt that though.. So what do you think??


But race also means the facial features, not just the skin colour. The physical outlook of a person is their race really, you can usually guess or tell what race they are by just looking at them. (Some are harder to guess than others).

There's only one human race. The facial structure, skin color, body size etc. is just adaptation of different groups of one race. The typically thought of, racial division of people, is just incorrectly named ethnic division. Any person knowing anthropology will say that, and they are the people who study the issue.

I think of culture as being a kind of product of race
