The conventional view of human evolution and how early man colonised the world has been thrown into doubt by a series of stunning palaeontological discoveries suggesting that Africa was not the sole cradle of humankind. Scientists have found a handful of ancient human skulls at an archaeological site two hours from the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, that suggest a Eurasian chapter in the long evolutionary story of man.
Of course the standard procedure is to follow up stories like this with, "but other scientists aren't so sure", as though there was a grand consensus on other contentious topics.
Such is the media that "reports" on what science finds or purports to find.
It's interesting how the attitudes in regards to race and gender are so diametrically opposed to their own logical suppositions, as mouthed by the average purveyors of the equality myth.
For example, if you ask most people which was of a more pronounced and concrete absolute, Gender or Race, most would say gender. Yet it is gender, NOT race, that is commonly (if such a word can be used to describe it) changed in medical procedures across the Western world and is often legally recognized under various laws.
Or put another way (and Michael Jackson jokes aside), if gender is biological and race is a social construct, then why are there no "Race Change" operations? Why don't we routinely see guys who look like Brad Pitt going into operations wherein they come out looking like Yaphet Kotto? Or women who look like Oprah Winfrey coming out of surgery looking like Julia Roberts?
The answer is obvious, but it tends to shatter the hypocritical fantasy the Left has engineered.
(It is similar to the mental gymnastics the left does when they declare that there is no such as a White race yet insist that homosexuals are "born that way.")
So considering that there are some butch looking White women who can almost pass as White men, yet never pass for black women, it's probably not a stretch to say that race is AT LEAST as biological (and thus pronounced and written in stone) as Gender.
No, race is not a social construct anymore than gender is. And just as the outward physical distinctions of the different genders represent two different types of general personalities or "souls", if you will, (such as temperament, mood, intellectual application and so on) so too does the physical distinctions in the races.
And whether most people are willing to admit it or not, they find the sight of two people of different races married together just as disturbing as the sight of two people of the same gender married together.
But many do openly deny that. And sadly that is the mental state of the ideology of the Left, which holds sway today. It denies what is normal, declaring war on nature in all of its various outgrowths.
Race is not a social construct. Societies are racial constructs.
