Race Without Color This article is about classifying races by color and how inaccurate that is By first discussing how different animal species are classified and then classifying humans by arbitrary characteristics such as fingerprints and lactose intolerance The article first starts by explaining how animals are classified into species by whether or not they interbreed with one another Then they are further categorized by location and characteristics adapted for survival The article then discusses the variability in humans as a result of natural selection in different environments the it attempts to categorize new races by the sickle-cell gene The sickle-cell gene is crucial in preventing malaria If races were classified by the sickle-cell gene then they would be completely different Swedes and Xhosas would be grouped with each other because of their lack of the gene Another method of racial classification would be the presence of lactose Because lactose was only needed when a baby was young and had to breastfeed by the mother as he got older there was no trace of lactose in the body Now days because many adults drink animal milk you can find a trace of lactose in their body The article argues that if we categorize races by the amount of lactose in the body we then again come up with different races The article also categorizes people by their body shape and then by their fingerprints This article explains how dumb it is to attempt to categorize people through race especially since you can use any grounds you wish to separate one race from another
