    I gotcha covered... and yes, I am taking a sociology class... all I do is take sociology classes... ugh. If you could offer a compelling comparison of social inequality in the US, Japan and Germany I just might be $100 poorer with a social life.

    Back on topic... I don't have any certainty about my family origins. I will offer the last names that my grandparents were born with and you guess... Shaw, Gregory, Kelley (the O was dropped in NY) and Tidwell. I have amber colored eyes, light auburn hair and freckles. At least 2 of my great-grandmothers were East Texas Cherokee and married white men to avoid resettlement. My grandmother used to say I had a pointy Dutchman's chin... not sure why.

    Yes, but I hope to have a Phd in sociology some day, so naturally, I'm going to promote people using these words properly.

    I'm a WASP from Wayback. Red/blonde hair and green eyes. Scots-Irish and supposedly Cherokee and Shawnee. I'm a descendant of Daniel Boone.

    I disagree. There is no biological basis for race. It is socially constructed.

    Edited to add a little clarification...

    Race: Socially defined groupings of people assumed to have common biological characteristics that separate them from other people.

    Ethnic Group: A group of people relatively distinct in cultural background compared with the dominant group in society

    I believe he agrees with you; he was most likely pointing out the race concept and where it sources its constructions from, no matter how ridiculously irrational it may be.
