During the enlightenment—anyone could become a Frenchman if he achieved  the proper education. In the 19 th  century, the enlightenment theory  was thrown out, racialism was  formulated into a pseudo-science (Darwinism lead to social Darwinism which  lead to anthropology and folklore) o Based on theory of the civilized vs the non civilized. It was that the non civilized were the non whites. Gobineau posivitism: scientism would be a foundation for anew society. Nazis combined racism with racialism in the holocaust.
