Race As A Cultural Construct

Considering the article “Thinking Anthropologically About Race,” social scientists now understand race to be a cultural construction, not based on biology, but rather ideas we prescribe to biology. In other words, there is no genetic foundation for racial categories because you may be more genetically similar to someone in a different race than in your own.
