What Is Race?

To jmckane:
That is indeed "old thinking". Anthropologists and geneticists believe there is only one race, the human race with lots and lots of physical ( phenotypic) variation. People do indeed choose to associate their identities culturally as well. The old categories are not scientifically correct, but still have useage in popular language.

While race is not a biological reality, it is still a social construction. That is, our society, both at the individual and institutional level, operate as if this concept is a biological reality in some cases.These are the kinds of issues that the exhibit explores.
