"Could you look at someone's genome and determine what their race is without looking at where they're from or looking at their ancestors? Maybe, maybe not." Not maybe. You easily can do that. If you sequence someone's genome you easily can tell whether that person's genome is mostly African/Asian/Caucasian etc and you even can tell exactly for how many percent we belong to a certain race and also where the minor parts in our genome are coming from. And >90% of the world population can easily be assigned to a dominant race (their genome typically consists of >99% of that race) and only for some areas of the world, such as America, things become more complicated, as people immigrated from many different races. But even there you still can find many people who are >99% Caucasian, for instance. In the future this may change (ie we probably will have more racially mixed people), but even then you still will always be able to tell exactly where your genes are coming from. For everybody who's interested: You can do that at 23andme.com
