Racism vs. Culturism

RESPONSE TO ABOVE ARTICLE:

A highly intelligent understanding of the problem of equating with race with culture.

It also provides a neat explanation of the differences between cultures without falling into the fallacy of assuming different races to be at differing levels of evolutionary development. It doesn't fall into the trap – inherent in all discussion of race – that some races are more equal than others.

It also hints at the Classic White Mistake of assuming that because Their science and technology is superior to anyone else's (as is the economic system – capitalism – that made such advances possible), that They – as a race – must be superior. Particularly this, '...some continue to cling to [a racial explanation of difference] because their pitiful excuse for self-esteem is bound up in it'.
