Dinaric Race

The Dinaric race (or Adriatic race or Epirotic race) is an archaic term historically used to describe the perceived predominant phenotype of the contemporary ethnic groups of South-Eastern Europe (a sub-category of Europid Caucasians), by physical anthropologists and scientific racists in the early to mid 20th century. Such racial typologies have been rejected by modern anthropology for several reasons, especially since the rise of molecular anthropology.

Famous quotes containing the word race:

    No race has the last word on culture and on civilization. You do not know what the black man is capable of; you do not know what he is thinking and therefore you do not know what the oppressed and suppressed Negro, by virtue of his condition and circumstance, may give to the world as a surprise.
    Marcus Garvey (1887–1940)
