Sorry EP, I am usually down with you, but this seems beyond odd to me. Firstly, you have already said that you reject the 19th century notion of race as biological, and that it is a social construct. So then where are these ratio's coming from. Moreover, what are black genes, and what are white genes? Folks have been moving around and getting busy with each other for millennia.

Black and White are not races, that is true. But we do have some different genes that are particular to whatever our ethnicity is. That's why I was talking about genetic ratios.
