  A century ago, evolutionary textbooks were making some very racist statements. One book proclaimed that there are now “on earth five races of man, each very different from the other. The first is the Ethiopian or Negro type, originating in Africa and finally, the highest type of all, the Caucasians.” 1Author: Tim Chaffey. The Origin of Race - Where did the races come from - a biblical explanation of race Prominent anthropologist, Ruth Benedict in her book, "Race: Science and Politics" stated the peoples of the earth are a single family and have a common origin. 3. is the real cause for the origin of modern races of people. Before that time students of mankind, influenced, consciously or unconsciously, by the story of Noah and the Ark and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japhet, were inclined to classify men into three or four great races and they were disposed to regard these races as having always been separate things, descended from originally separate ancestors.

The origin of the human races A human race is defined as a group of people with certain common inherited features that distinguish them from other groups of people. All men of whatever race are currently classified by the anthropologist or biologist as belonging to the one species, Homo sapiens. The origin and evolution of man, Homo sapiens, have been a topic of great biolo­gical interest since time immemorial. The idea that man is a creation of a super­natural power prevailed for long time in earlier days. A significant portion of the current world population is of mixed race. In Mexico, and in some countries in Central America and South America, a majority of the current population is of mixed race, or mestizo, of part White and part American Indian origin. In Asia, a minority of the population is Eurasian, of part White and part Asian origin. Human evolution from its first separation from the last common ancestor of humans and chimpanzees is characterized by a number of morphological, developmental, physiological, and behavioral changes.

  The systematization of race concepts during the Enlightenment period brought with it the conflict between monogenism (a single origin for all human races) and polygenism (the hypothesis that races had separate origins). Fortunately, today . The concept of race as a rough division of anatomically modern humans has a long and complicated history. The word race itself is modern and was used in the sense of "nation, ethnic group" during the 16th to 19th centuries and acquired its modern meaning in the field of physical anthropology only from the midth century. The politicization of the field under the concept of . , RIDPATH'S HISTORY OF THE WORLD THE EVOLUTION OF MANKIND AND THE STORY OF ALL RACES, cturer: Merrill & Baker Publishers. A race is a grouping of humans based on shared physical or social qualities into categories generally viewed as distinct by society. The term was first used to refer to speakers of a common language and then to denote national affiliations. By the 17th century the term began to refer to physical (phenotypical).
