You have thugs and you have hard workers, do genes play a role in this? No, how the person is nurtured does. Does being poor make you a slob and a thug? Nope, it does not. How you are raised makes you the way you are. If the person is raised to be a hard worker, then they will be a hard worker. If the person is raised to hate the world and be a slob, then they will be a slob. Its a nurtured mind set, no race affects what they do or how the person is.

Interesting stuff there! I recall reading once, (and God help me, but I don't remember where or by whom, which could be a bad thing if I remember later on), that the "theory" of where the skin colors came into play was easily discerned by looking at our closest relatives. Basically, it went something like this:
Whites inherrited their skin color and characteristics from Chimpanzees.
Blacks inherrited theirs from Gorillas.
Red-skinned and yellow-skinned individuals (and possibly red-haired), inherrited theirs from Orangatans, and possibly some mixture of the above.
