 On today's program, Vince plays Part Two of "Racism: A History" - 'Fatal Impacts.

Part Two examines the controversial theories of Social Darwinism and Scientific Racism, concepts invented during the 19th century. Both ideologies that drew on now discredited practices such as phrenology and provided an ideological justification for racism, slavery and the violence of colonization. These theories ultimately led to eugenics .These same racial theories lived on into the 20th century to become part of the ideology that underpinned the Third Reich and Nazi racial policies of the master race.
