What we associate with race and race-
superiority belong to a matter of fact. to this
domain of culture.
To begin with there is the such thing as pure race.
Racial homogeny - so
often insisted upon and is so often taken for granted,
is more often cultural rather than racial. For

but in fact they possess no racial homogeny what
they possess is a cultural homogeny. So my attempt at
a discussion
of racial superiority, or for that matter, of racial
inferiority, is an effort [hosted?] on a thing
that does not exist.
What we really mean when we speak of racial
superiority, is in truth institutional differences possessed
by the various peoples of the world - among these
institutionalized factors and facts of life may be
mentioned languages, cultures, political systems and philoso-
phies, social and economic concepts expressed, ethical theories
