6. New racisms? racist . However, even self-confessed racists appear to have as little agreement about how many races exist and how exactly they are to be differentiated from each other as the supporters of the concept of race in the past. This is simply because humanity cannot be divided into races. Racism without races? But if races do not really exist and have never existed, and few people now admit to being racist, what makes it possible for responsible researchers in the social sciences, journalists, politicians, and large numbers of ordinary citizens to claim that racism is still widespread

The sort of continuities that staunch nationalists like to promote do not reflect the complex inheritance that Iranians carry with them, but it is also true that as a political culture and civilization, the idea of Iran and the Iranians has sustained some striking continuities.
