    Are you so sure it is only English and Americans who do this? Even so, in a democracy people (supposedly) can believe and write whatever they like, it is the choice of the individual whether or not they are taken seriously and in the academic world neither are.

    Besides Dan Brown is a bad example, as stupid as he and his books are, they are only novels.

    There have been books published in Europe very similar to this of Mr Duke. It is not only limited to the English speaking world.

    Again, it has nothing to do with race, but only with culture.

    Why are the Dutch lousy ice hockey players? They skate very well, and they are also good football players.
    The answer is their lenght, not their race. The Dutch are simply to tall to play ice hockey.
    They can't sprint and stop, make the fast moves.

    Just look at the way a human is built, and you know what sports he/she may be good in.
    I checked the lenght of our best ice hockey players, most are very high. Best attacker Ovechkin - 188 centimeter height, best player of Czech Republic the Jaromir Jagr have 191 centimeter height. Plus all Scandinavian teams play very well and their height of players even higher.
    Maybe there is just not enough amount of ice rinks in Netherlands?

    Hmm I played ice hockey, and it is an advance to be 175 centimeter. When I was young I also could have been a good rugby player, but there is no rugby in The Netherlands. Also there is a problem with the number of ice facilities in the Netherlands.
    They are only in some cities. But I guess the main factor is, the Dutch are too individualistic to play ice hockey.
    No team spirit. Look at football.. Always had good players, the best of the world, but never got anywhere, because they behave like prima donna's.
    I am not interested in football very much, but if I look all over the world I like Brasil the most. And Germany as a second.
    Brasil because of the Samba, and German football because of their spirit.

    Racial Classification is'nt that bad. I don't think its wrong. If a person has to report about some theft or robbery and the Police says that you can describe the person anyway but his/her race. How exactly would you be able to come to an exact look of the number. Its ok, but racial abuses is not fine.

    It's accurate if based on the latest genetic studies.

    As scientist I am, I can't denied races exist as the evolution exists. Denied human races is denied reality. And we can't forget that in medicine, the knowledge of human races helps doctors to save lives. As every matter in life, knowledge can be used to do good things and to do evil things. It depends of everyone. Sorry by my English. Regards.

    I agree with Ziober.

    In order to get passed the taboo and misunderstanding about division of races, humanity needs to make a quantum leap in the way we perceive things.

    The division into races should be understood only as a fact that it exists and accept it as such, just as a mere fact nothing more nothing less.

    Second thing would be to learn more about races and cultures without judging, since this gives us power of knowledge and understanding and that is a predisposition for betterment. When we understand that races are the richness and the resource to make a better world, only then these paradigms will disappear, only then we will understand the power of synergy.

    All the races can learn from one another, but until fear is the main driver, human race will always find things that will prove one race (or whatever group they identify one selves) better over the other.

    Race is only an intermediate holding pattern of phenotypes. Over a thousand years those features might not be visible with mixing genes, diet, environment, etc. Yes in upto twenty years a race could be identifiable and static but in hundred years there might not even be that race in existence.
