Stamped: Chapter 7 Summary & Analysis

This chapter is just a one-sentence reminder: “Africans are not savages.”
Even though they still live on, the racist ideas from the last chapter are all illogical lies. In fact, racist ideas are always false: all scientific evidence shows that different racial groups are equal in every measurable way. In fact, scientists can’t even tell different racial groups apart, because race is just a powerful idea, not a biological reality. There’s no specific genetic or biological factor that makes people one race or another.
