That was a commonly accepted belief in the United States from the seventeenth century until the mid-twentieth century.
Is there a particular study that you can point to that shows this?
Yes. There are many such studies.
The majority of modern scientist would disagree with this and don't consider racial classifications biological classifications.
I'm not really interested in what the epistemologically worthless disciplines of sociology or cultural anthropology have to say about race. There is considerable support for the hereditarian hypothesis across several academic disciplines.
The differences between the races are either considered to be superficial or the result of differing enviroments, not distinct genetic patterns.
If the environmental explanation for racial differences were true, it would obviously follow that the differences between races would be significantly tractable. Try finding a high school in the United States where East Asians and Europeans do not significantly perform Negroes and Hispanics academically, over and over again, year after year.
This was the whole premise behind integration. It was said at the time that segregation was the cause of such differences. Well. We integrated our public schools decades ago and have thrown billions of dollars away trying to uplift blacks to equality and have failed miserably.
