Myths people build racism on

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6293333.stm

This is much more interesting than all that Big Brother Jade Goody stuff.

It’s an example illustrating that skin colour doesn’t indicate much about people’s genetic inheritance.

It demonstrates that where ever you stand in the nature verses nurture debate, it’s wrong to suppose that a few superficial indicators of a person’s genes say much about the rest of their genetic inheritance.

Of course any Sociologist will tell you that what actually exists often has less impact on society than what people think exists.

  2. No-one will stand up and support rape or murder, but it doesn’‘t stop them happening.

    Perhaps a starting point might be What is Racism? Do races really exist? Or are they just a way of segregating people?

    Have a look at wiki
