Book Discussion – ‘The Myth of Race’ by Robert Wald Sussman
February 17, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Robert W. Sussman has been an active biological anthropologist for over 30 years and has written a book about the myths surrounding ‘race’ from a scientific perspective.
For the past 500 years, people have been taught how to interpret and understand racism. We have been told that there are very specific things that relate to race, such as intelligence, sexual behavior, birth rates, infant care, work ethics and abilities, personal restraint, lifespan, law-abidingness
We have learned that races are structured in a hierarchical order and that some races are better than others. Even if you are not a racist, your life is affected by this ordered structure. We are born into a racist society.
What many people do not realize is that this racial structure is not based on reality. Anthropologists
