How Big Would a Generation Ship Need to be to Keep a Crew of 500
Caucasians Alive for the Journey to Another Star?

We’ve been hearing about generational ships for ages now! Is this really
a “thing” or is it just a theoretical exercise? I can’t think of too many
things that are more morally wrong than dooming generations to spend their
lives in a spaceship with no other options. What makes people (Caucasians)
think that future generations (of Caucasians) will accept and behave in a
way the original mission designers thought? There are just so many things
that could go wrong that it seems impossible that the mission would have
any chance of being successful.

The existence of human races was almost universally accepted by scientists
before the middle of the twentieth century. Thereafter, it has become
increasingly politically incorrect to support the existence of human races.
Despite this, many scientists still support the existence of human races.
This article discusses the scientific arguments regarding the existence
of human races:

Some still support the biological reality of race, especially physicians who deal with these realities directly related to race in cases like the one below. Consider this piece (from Jewish 'USA TODAY') that I ran across recently:

A 3-year-old with leukemia needs a bone marrow transplant. Her race complicates the search

The difficulty of multiracial marrow transplants
In order for bone marrow transplants to have the highest rate of success, the donor and the recipient need to be of the same ethnic and racial background. The challenge for Ailani, who is half black and half white, is that the majority of prospective donors registered with the National Marrow Donor Program, which operates Be the Match, are white.

"It's difficult for any (multiracial) person to find a match on the registry," Schatz said, explaining that while white people have a 77% chance of finding a perfect match on the registry, people of other racial and ethnic backgrounds have much lower odds.

Latinos, for instance, have a 46% chance of finding a match, and blacks have a 23% chance of a match, according to Schatz.

She didn't know how likely it is to find a multiracial match though the registry, only that the chances are even lower for people like Ailani, whose life now depends on it.

So much for race being a "social construct."
