Furthermore, any further intermixing with the yellow or black races will lead to decline. He claimed that the race of the white will never stop so long as blood is still composed of the original mixture of the people.
In his views, Gobineau is selective. He view French peasants and concluded that most of them are totally not interested in what has civilization and are capable of only moving towards the direction taken by the civilized. This made his views to be ignored by all his French colleagues. Another problem involves the means by which evolution might operate. Some of the problems could not get solutions until the rediscovery of the principles by Mendel.
Pouchet belongs to the school of thought of heterogenesis. He stated that heterogenesis was production of freshly organized being and also a principle of nature. According to him, he believed that living organisms originated initial generations of plants and animals and not got from raw matter.
Pouchet’s view is seen as preconceived ideas benefiting the spontaneous generation; which is the principle that living organisms can develop independently with no parents who originates from either organic or inorganic matter. The history accounts that Pouchet concluded without completion of the experiment.
To bring out the physical differences in the humans, Darwin used the theory of sexual selection to come up with differences between races. This theory was looked in a way by which adaptation for high chances of successful mating can act against adaptation for high chances of survival. The reason for the difference in people from different continents is because of mating preference differences. The difference also came by way of shared ancestry with one parent stock.
Darwin had no deductive origin from which to deduce the quantitative efficiency of a discerning process in the production of evolutionary change. Darwin was not willing to pressure his theory past what

The discussion seeks to answer the question: What does it mean to say that race is a social construction? How is the social meaning of race the result of political struggles? What are the key points about the complex relationship between SES and race? What is the primary institutional mechanism of racism that is a fundamental cause of racial disparities in health?

Ethnicity on the other hand is an old concept we have from the past when society divides people from various tribes and tongues, beliefs, religions and other related requirements (PBS.org). In other words, race may be a more sophisticated approach in order to justify differences, and even to the point of identifying inferiority complex, which at some point ended up to unprecedented negative image of other racial-related activities.
There are many kinds of races and ethnicities in the world that create a difference from one geographic area to another. Countries have become interconnected over the years and there has been lots of travel, migration and mingling of all sorts that have made the presence of all races all over the world.
Omi and Winant (1994, p. 55) state "race is a concept, which signifies and symbolizes social conflicts and interests, by referring to different types of human bodies".
Some sociologists state that the notion of race has always been filled with some socio-cultural meaning, demonstrating an attitude towards 'aliens', expressed through the emphasizing of their most observable physical differences.
Whereas, ethnicity applies to cultural characteristics unlike race, and is the basis for understanding concepts between two people of different "kinds."
The theories that claim that racial or ethnic groups are inherently inferior or superior and entitle some to dominate and to eliminate others, whom they consider inferior on the basis of racial discrimination, are totally contrary to moral and ethical principles of humanity.
The discussion of political freedom and ethnicity might not be of much interest but a discussion made by writers with different point of view on same topic won't be a boring one. I am one of those people standing in the gathering where people were enjoying the discussion made by Leroi Jones, the author of "blues people", and Socrates of "Walking the dog".
