Your school is feeding you bullshit, and you have become a moron

And Schwartz is retarded. His word isn't law. Race determines physical characteristics which influences risk for certain diseases and disorders.

You don't need a degree to understand what race is, but it looks like you do need one for being tricked into not.

Did this guy just seriously say that there is no genetic support for race?
Did I read that right?

Yes, dispite what idiots on the internet may say here at ASU at the school of human evolution one of the premier biological anthropology school in the US you would be laughed at for talking about race as a characteristic of genetics.

Race is a social construct not a biological one. Just to bring up one example from the literature from the paper written by Schwartz, R.S. "Racial profiling in medical research" Schwarts describes Race as Biologically Meaningless.

The major reason is that human variation is extremely low, and that the differences do not follow race characteristics possibly because the amount of time that human beings lived in these small racial groups is so short. There is more genetic diversity between individuals within your average class in school college, highschool and even local lower schools than there are differences between your average american class and a class in china, india or central africa.

Race is not a genetic distinction it is a social distinction.

The viking did it looooooooong before damascus steel was a thing. The viking method was to take several rods made of slightly different steel, weld them together, twist them around into a certain pattern and then then heat and hammer them until they turned into a single, solid piece. Damascus steel is made using several sheets of slightly different steel and the same procedure. Basically, the difference is that the vikings used rods and whoever it is that actually made damascus steel used sheets. This also resulted in a different pattern. The viking crucible steel has more symmetric patterns and doesn't have as many rings as the damascus steel.

Actually, newest findings show that the Franks they indeed made their own crucible steel. That is all "Damascus" steel is, crucible steel.

It is interesting, however, that you say "Its called Damascus steel for a raisin," considering how Damascus imported their steel from India. The proper name for historical "Damascus" steel is "Wootz" steel, which was imported from India to Damascus, where the swords were forged.

TL;DR the Franks DID make their own crucible steel, Damascus didn't.
