Are people who believe in or embrace evolution also racists?

Here is a point to consider. Many earlier editions of Charles Darwin's works had longer titles.....less politically correct titles....including words like "favored races" and the like.

Many earlier editions of Charles Darwin's works had longer titles.....less politically correct titles....including words like "favored races" and the like. Here is a notable quote from the father of evolution:

"At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world...The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state...and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the ***** or Australian and the gorilla."

In that quote, he essentially is equating the highest for of primate (in his mind) the ape to the Australian...and the lowest (again in his mind) form of primate, the baboon to the *****. Now given this logic, it can be said that there are all kinds of other primates in between those ends of the spectrum.......so I wonder what he thought about Asians, Latinos, etc?

An interesting fact: The father of Eugenics. Mr. Galton is Charles Darwin's cousin....imagine that. If you believe evolution, you also believe that even in the human race there are superiors and inferiors.....man-made theories are always so shortsighted, evil and corrupt. The same people who embrace these theories call others close-minded....

So, let's all open our minds for a bit and consider ALL of evolution and not just the parts that appeal to some of us. If a person wholly embraces evolution, doesn't it naturally follow that inherently they also embrace some form (even if subtle) of racism? Mr. Darwin did......and so do other members of his family.
Update: Also, I posted this in R&S because just like Christianity, Islam, etc. and so forth, evolution is a belief........arguably a religious belief. Charles Darwin = Buddha and he has followers as well. In fact, Charles Darwin = Joseph Smith as well. So why isn't evolution a religion?
Update 2: The biology argument is in essence focusing on the trees and forgetting that you are in the forest. Even if you break the theory down into its scientific constituents, its inherent nature (the forest) is that things evolve to survive and those that don't won't. Look around you. If you were to biologically... show more The biology argument is in essence focusing on the trees and forgetting that you are in the forest. Even if you break the theory down into its scientific constituents, its inherent nature (the forest) is that things evolve to survive and those that don't won't. Look around you. If you were to biologically apply this to people, you get Eugenics and Planned Parenthood. Which were breathed in not so archaic history and can be considered modern applications of evolutionist theory. Planned Parenthood targets low income and disabled populations. Those abortions are not living kids...so I guess the poor low income people didn't adapt? Margaret Sanger was a proponent of eugenics.
Update 3: There will always be some biologist who if given the financial backing and support of others in the scientific community will have an award-winning modern theory.....but I digress.
