Everyone's racist in some way, let alone prejudice. Does it excuse people from being racist/prejudice, no, but it's empathetical. For some people it's blatant hated, for others it's either subliminal or they had a/some bad experience(s).

There are genetic differences in races. You can tell a person's ancestry, therefor their race, via DNA testing. This has been proven time and time again by various molecular biologists, and there are multiple documentaries of it.

race is an artificial construct. the genetic diversity in humans is not easily delineated by the racial construct we have. all you have to do is examine "multiracial" people. if someone is part Asian and part Caucasian. five generations of offspring with only Caucasians will result in children who look Caucasian. no one would ever call them Asian, but by your definition, since they have Asian ancestry (DNA) they must be Asian.

#20 I dont know what documentaries and articles you've read, but maybe you should check to make sure they're peer-reviewed. Race is a societal creation. The only thing that separates the races is the amount of melanin in their skin. Which is an environmental adaptation. People along the equator adapted to have darker skin(more melanin) because melanin protects the skin from sun damage. If there were genetic differences, different races wouldn't be able to procreate and create multiracial offspring.

Skin color (amount of melanin you are BORN with) is hereditary. Also, the ease of which a person produces more melanin is hereditary. This is dictated by your DNA, which has a signifigantly different code for melanin production based on race.

Race is literally an accepted human classification, sure the word is "made up". But so was the word melanin. Both words are made up but both are representative of a real thing, and are accepted by society to represent those things. (oops, tried to post this in edit but I ran out of time)
