Real, distinguishable physical racial differences do exist. Anthropologists
have reconstructed the migration of asians into the new world by studying
the shapes of teeth of both living and dead people on both sides of the
Pacific. I recently attended a presentation by a forensicist who explained
that, while "race" could not always be determined from remains, it often could
be, and certain possibilities could be eliminated. He had slides showing
how skulls could be re-built into faces, which were often undeniably of one
race or another.
