Scientific racism

Scientific racism, sometimes referred to as race biology, race realism, or human biodiversity,[1][2] is a pseudoscientific belief that empirical evidence exists to support or justify racism (racial discrimination), racial inferiority, racial superiority, and eugenics.[3][4][5] Historically, scientific racism received credence throughout the scientific community, but it is no longer considered scientific.[4][5]
