@Rsk6400: what is your opinion on this page and whether it duplicates Race (sociology)? Lights and freedom (talk) 18:23, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • I'll put in a thought here. The language is way not simple, and the page should be put to RfD on that score alone. En wiki does not have a parallel, but has "Race (human categorization)" under which we find "Sociology of Race and ethnic relations" amidst about 20 other subcategories. Unfortunately the QD options do not help in this respect. Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:46, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, actually it might be considered a part duplicate of Race (sociology). Macdonald-ross (talk) 18:51, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It wouldn't need to be deleted, it could just be redirected, unless there is a need for two articles. Lights and freedom (talk) 19:04, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Absolutely not simple English, in part off topic (the "four main subfields" of anthropology don't belong here), not up to date (Boas was of course historically important, but that was a century ago), not verifyable because of the complete chaos in the reference section. Since we also have Race (biology), RfD might be the best idea. --Rsk6400 (talk) 18:06, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Rsk6400 I would note that apart from you (and possibly Macdonald-ross? IDK) there are probably no editors on simplewiki who are qualified in this subject. So if you want to redirect to Race (sociology), probably nobody would object. Lights and freedom (talk) 19:38, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I just gave it a try. Let's see if somebody will object. Rsk6400 (talk) 05:36, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
