"You know what the biggest indignity is? I can't even masturbate! One morning I spent 20 minutes aggressively rubbing my shin, thinking 'Where's the sensation?'" "You were rubbing your shin? You couldn't tell?" "No, I couldn't tell, didn't you hear me? I'M BLIND!" -Ron Burgandy -Anchorman 2
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.
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)

Let's just hope he doesn't complain to your manager. People on this site tend to get fired for stuff that isn't their fault
