I haven't read every single one of the posts in this thread, but
I have seen enough postings along the lines of "It is easy to
classify people by race" to make me wonder how many people have
really looked into this question from the scientific side.

Let's start simple. What is your scheme to classify people by race?
Just to start with: make sure it accounts for blood proteins.
This had been much studied and the data are available many places.
It should be easy, right? ;-)
