    Of course it is. There is no sound biological basis for it
    Create your own university; develop and encourage a culture of critical thinking and action

    I swear this topic has been resurrected in almost verbatim words 100 times on this forum. The answer is YES!! Race is absolutely a social construct. Genectically Barack Obama may have more in common with some white people than he does with some black people.
