Polled questions.
Q1: Are there individual (biological) traits that can be used to define a racial group? 
  • Incorrect response (score = 0): Yes, there are single biological traits (such as skin color or eye shape) that can be used to distinguish one racial group from another.

 
  • Correct response (score = 1): No, there is too much overlap between racial groups to use a single biological trait (like skin color or eye shape) to distinguish one racial group from another.

 
Q2: Are there groups of (biological) traits that collectively can be used to define a racial group? 
  • Incorrect response (score = 0): Yes, when several traits are combined they can be used to distinguish one racial group from another.

 
  • Correct response (score = 1): No, there is no combination of traits that can be used to distinguish one racial group from another.

 
Q3: Are there more biological differences between racial groups or between individuals within a single race? 
  • Incorrect response (score = 0): There are more biological differences between two racial groups.

 
  • Correct response (score = 1): There are more biological differences between individuals within a single race.

 
Q4: Is race biologically or culturally based? 
  • Incorrect response (score = 0): Race is based on biological differences among racial groups, as opposed to cultural perceptions of such differences.

 
  • Correct response (score = 1): Race is based on cultural perceptions of differences among racial groups, as opposed to biological differences among such groups.
