It makes a large difference to how one sees things.

We are a species......Race is difficult to define and to differentiate.....Physical Anthropology has retired the idea of Races and instead, it looks at the geographic site of our ancestors as a differentiating factor between people.....the environmental conditions of that site are the factors that were at work to cause us to look differently. Transportation and travel have intermixed all people. Technology with the heating and cooling of our shelter has greatly tempered the environmental factors that made us look different. Over time it is predicted that the Human Species will become much more homogeneous. It is a normal human behavior to be suspicious, rejecting and even hostile towards people who look different than us. It could be predicted that as we all come closer to looking alike, we will become less warlike and enjoy more Peace.....
