Race differences show up early in life.
I was born in Bournemouth, England, in 1943.
I received a D.Sc. from the University of London in 1992.
A race is what zoologists term a variety or subdivision of a species.
We emigrated to South Africa and later to Canada so I went to school in several places.
To deny the predictive validity of race at this level is nonscientific and unrealistic.
Of course, individuals vary greatly within each racial group and should be treated as such.
I then moved to the University of Western Ontario where I was made a full professor in 1985.
Those objecting to the concept of race argue that the taxonomic definitions are arbitrary and subjective.
Nonetheless, much has been learned by studying the statistical differences between the various human races.
