Ras Kaukasoid

"Ras Kaukasoid"[1] tau kanggo nuduhake fenotipe umum saka akèh-akèhé penghuni Éropah, Afrika Utara, Timur Tengah, Pakistan lan India Utara.[2] Keturunanne uga netep ing Australia, Amérika Utara, separo manèh saka Amérika Selatan, Afrika Selatan, lan Selandia Baru. Anggota "ras Kaukasoid" padhatan sinebut "kulit putih", sanajan mau ora mesti bener. Déning sapérangan nimpuna tuladhané wong Ethiopia lan wong Somalia, kang tengkorake memper tengkorak Kaukasoid, dianggep kalebu "ras" mau, sanajan rambute brintik lan kulike ireng, ciri kang dianggep nemtokake "ras Negroid".

Pakar genetika asal Itali Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza wis mbuktekake yèn bagi manungsa ing sajeroning ras minangka sawijining usaha kang siya-siya. Mulane saka segi biologi, istilah kaya ta "ras Kaukasoid" lan racaké, "ras manungsa", ora dianggep manèh. Fenotipe sawijining wong ditemtokake déning mung sapérangan gen. Kanthi biologis, mung ana siji ras manungsa, ya iku Homo sapiens sapiens.
