In the last 200 years, racial discrimination by Christians has largely stemmed from an acceptance of evolution in the Church which has also been used by Hitler, Stalin and others to justify the superiority of certain 'races' of people (ie. some are more evolved than others) over others. Of course, bearing the brunt of this satanic tirade has been the Jews and dark-skinned peoples such as Afro-Americans and Australian Aborigines (the original European settlers of Australia believed the Aborigines were one of the 'missing links' in the human evolutionary chain).
Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" is subtitled "By means of natural selection or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life". The mapping of the human genome has shown (at least on the biological level) that there is no difference between the so called 'races', and so once more we see the reliability of the Biblical account verified and the folly of evolutionary thinking exposed.
