There is clannishness everywhere in the Animal kingdom. Even among animals you would have seen how animals from other tribes are repelled by other tribes. Clannishness is a biological tendency of animal kind. In human beings, this tends to be a serious problem. Clannishness is not the domain of the sophisticated human being. Yet it still exists. We don’t know why.
Human beings are fundamentally the same. It’s just that they are presented differently to the world. A race can have a very strong influence on a person. If you are a black, you are expected to be big, strong, and athletic. If you are Nordic, you are expected to be rugged, sophisticated, and charming. If you are Asia, you are expected to be accommodating, good-natured, and hard-working.
A race does tend to carry a psychological and physiological attributes. A person in a race tends to behave the same way as others of the same race. So you can say that the behavior of a person in a race is in no way connected to the race. We can safely segregate behavior from racial characteristics.
A race is a beautiful concept. But has gone terribly wrong. A race actually brings a lot of variety to the world. Unfortunately, some races have fallen back on certain things, while others have advanced with certain things. If Africans were born in Europe, you would have seen Africans dying on parched Earth. You would have seen them enjoying themselves amongst beautiful meadows, and green plains.
The race concept might be a divine concept. But somehow we have placed hierarchies on it and classified it.
