Summary
First in a three-part series exploring the history of race perceptions and behaviors towards races in the United States, within the context of recent scientific discoveries which have have toppled the concept of biological race. This segment follows a dozen students, including Black athletes and Asian American string players, who sequence and compare their own DNA looking for a "race marker." Also looks at the history of racism in the U.S., the advent of stereotypes based on physical attributes attributed to races and somatotypes with particular reference to African Americans
