It was the American experience of those three separate population components facing one another on a daily basis under conditions of manifest and enforced inequality that created the concept in the first place and endowed it with the assumption that those perceived "races" had very different sets of capabilities. Those thoughts are very influential and have become enshrined in laws and regulations. This is why I can conclude that, while the word "race" has no coherent biological meaning, its continued grip on the public mind is in fact a manifestation of the power of the historical continuity of the American social structure, which is assumed by all to be essentially "correct."
Old English hwilc (West Saxon) "which," short for hwi-lic "of what form," from Proto-Germanic *khwilikaz (cf. Old Saxon hwilik , Old Norse hvelikr , Swedish vilken , Old Frisian hwelik , Middle Dutch wilk , Dutch welk , Old High German hwelich , German welch , Gothic hvileiks "which"), from *khwi- "who" (see who ) + *likan "body, form" (cf. Old English lic "body;" see like (adj.)). In Middle English used as a relative pronoun where Modern English would use who , as still in the Lord's Prayer. Old English also had parallel forms hwelc and hwylc , which disappeared 15c.
