Most Anthropologists don't like to use "race" at all. They think of race as a socially constructed term that really has no bearing in biological fact. There are *trends* however and the categories are caucasion, mongoloid and negroid. They all have to do with skeletal structure and things like that, but there has been so much "interbreeding" (for lack of a better word) that the old standards are fairly useless. For example, a white male may have the facial structure of a "typical mongoloid female", it just doesn't work.
