  1. mongolian race

    The Mongolian race is a term historically used in the anthropological classification system for describing ethnicities, particularly those of Asian descent specifically from the Mongolian region. The term and its usage are considered outdated and incorrect by modern classification standards, due to its association with the debunked ideology of racial hierarchy and discrimination. The people typically classified under the "Mongolian race" are generally native tribes from Mongolia, China, Korea, Japan, some regions of Russia and Southeast Asia. The term has often been associated with certain physical characteristics, such as yellow or olive skin, dark hair, and specific eye shapes. However, it's important to note that people from this vast range of geographies and cultures are highly diverse in their genetics, languages, traditions, and histories, hence one single term cannot define them accurately or respectfully. Contemporary sciences now favor the understanding of human populations in terms of genetic variation and adaptation over these obsolete racial classifications.
