25 Myths about Race: Myth 1 – Race Is a “Social Construct”
The myth that “race is a social construct” is one of the few that can be traced back to an actual individual. It was created by Jewish “anthropologist”, Franz Boas, who forked anthropology by creating a branch of it known as “cultural” anthropology in order to advance his antarian ideas about race. (It’s enlightening to learn how many bad ideas and anti-White movements have Jews as their progenitors.)
The fact is that race is a genetic reality that goes much more than skin deep. For instance, physical anthropologists have been able to identify (for almost a century now) the race of an individual’s remains by a cursory examination of his or her bones. Also, because of the vast differences among the races, modern medical science is increasingly focusing on the race of the patient. It turns-out, different races react dramatically different to medicines and the various forms of treatment.
What we call “race” when referring to humans is the same as what we call “sub-species” in all other animals and the Human Genome Project has clearly identified three primary sub-species (that correlate directly to those long-identified by physical anthropology): Caucasian (Europeans, Middle Easterners, and North Africans), Negro (Sub-Saharan Africans), and Mongoloid (Asians and American Indians).
All of history and science shows one thing is certain: different peoples produce differing civilizations and cultures based on their genetic code and how it causes them to perceive their surroundings. So, not only is race not a “social construct” but the converse is true, society is a racial construct.
