My research indicates that the science behind that statement is far from conclusive and if anything the community has mixed opinions on the issue at
best with some studies indicating the opposite.
There is no disputing that genetics is the reason we look different and those different characteristics are the very definition of race.
No disputing that in other animal species behavior is very much related to genetics.
We are also animals and similar laws of biology should apply.
It is naive to think that while genetics determines physical traits it has zero effect in mental traits and behavior in human beings.
That said - there will never be any real substantive research into the issue because of political correctness.
Until the issue of the effects of genetics on behavior and intelligence can be objectively studied absent political correctness we will never know.
Anyone even suggesting a study would be shunned for asking.
Scientists and people in general are perhaps afraid of the answers IMO.
