Genetic maps: using DNA, we can tell what race and ethnicity you are

Check out the genetic map of East Asia and the genetic map of Europe.

You can see in each of these that the DNA of these populations not only separates them by race, but by ethnicity, including showing clinal overlaps at the geographic edges of these populations.

Most people breed with people like them, and our genetic history bears this out. The next time someone tells you that race or ethnicity is a social construct and not solid biology, point them to this page.
