You keep painting with these incredibly broad strokes and I'm having to wonder where the source is on this? I know for an absolute fact, that genetics does not pick one's culture. A Hispanic child raised by two white parents is still far more likely to have a predisposition to, and participate in white culture. If you can back up the "culture/behavior is a result of genetics" I'm all for reading it.I think the idea that there are no complex and both subtle and obvious differences between groups is the superficial way of perceiving this. Because the skin tone of an italian man and an arab, or a chinese man and a frenchman isn't that different. They are instead a linguistic placeholder for recognizing differences of genetics. And nothing predicts personality better than genetics. Even if you're adopted, the most likely factor that you'll be a smoker is whether your biological parents were smokers.
Agreed, no science should be outlawed simply because of social taboos.Because it has been made politically unacceptable to study this, it is a very understudied subject and I wish not venture deep into guess territory, but it's quite likely that we can discover big differences between genetic groups in the big five, the most accurate personality model we have discovered so far.
There's that again. People will generally prefer others who share their value and culture, and this is more to do with the fact that, yes, racial groups generally share the same values. However, it's disingenuous to imply that people always enjoy being around others like them, even when the share little outside of aesthetic similarities. I myself generally do not enjoy being around others like me outside of family (likely due to growing up in the dominant culture), and tend to gravitate towards others who are a part of the same culture, not racial group.These differences result in groups developing a different culture. And no matter the effort we've expended to be color-blind, and certainly I've lived most my life that way (or tried to), people in general among each group do not seem to be able to really surpass that and have a prefference for their own, even if they have to discover this after a while.
This is generally the assumption because folks with these beliefs often do use it to spread hate, propagate segregation and even outright displacement/genocide (See: Black Lives Matter and the Neo-Nazi movement), Doesn't mean it's always the case, but there is a strong correlation.That prefference doesn't mean you have to hate any other groups either. I don't hate lettuce, I just prefer broccoli.
