Not so, anne. The traditional "races" do indeed show certain genetic tendencies and markers. This should not surprise us, though, as the different "races" represent very extended and intermixed families, which would obviously tend to have common gene groupings. It is merely political correctness run amok to suggest otherwise, due to the idea of "races" being unfashionable these days.
