Several posters over the years have implied that Evolution and Racism are related or that racism is supported by evolution.
The fact is that the Theory of Evolution is antithetical to the concept of racism. As we learn more, particularly in the field of genetics, it becomes increasingly obvious that there is almost no difference between humans of any kind, and in fact far less difference between humans and apes, or even humans and pond scum, than anyone imagined.
Humans and pond scum are directly related, we both are descended from a common ancestor.
Racism is one of the leftovers from an earlier period when mankind was far more ignorant than today, and in particular from the assumption that religious claims of exclusivity and dominance have any validity.

Re: Where to?
No, I suggest Miscellaneous Topics in Creation/Evolution since it is not so much a matter of Human Origins as Human behavior.
