The three races of Man

All of Earth's people, according to a new analysis of the genomes of 53 populations, fall into just three genetic groups. One group is the African. It contains the descendants of the original humans who emerged in East Africa about 200,000 years ago. The second is the Eurasian, encompassing the natives of Europe, the Middle East and Southwest Asia (east to about Pakistan). The third is the East Asian, the inhabitants of Asia, Japan and Southeast Asia, and - thanks to the Bering Land Bridge and island-hopping in the South Pacific - of the Americas and Oceania as well.

I remember reading in the World Book Encyclopedia in 1955 about the 3 races of Man.

Same today except they now have politically correct names.
