Why Your Race Isn't Genetic

DNA doesn't determine race. Society does.  

Nature & Technology

 Michael White      

"The concept of human races appears to be solidly grounded in present-day biology and our evolutionary history. But if you asked that conference of geneticists to give you a genetic definition of race, they wouldn’t be able to do it. Human races are not natural genetic groups; they are socially constructed categories."
