Race is perhaps one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in anthropology, biology, and other related fields. As a non-scientist, I've used google to probe the disparity between the positions of those who believe that race exists and those who don't. I would like to know what is the generally accepted or most popular stance on the issue of race. Is it that, there is only one human race, and all genetic differences between us are shallow? Or, is it that, different human races exist biologically speaking?
