Patient : Recently I had a debate that a persons skin color is a part of nature. Then one of my friends who is studying to become a doctor said skin color has to do with nurture. Now from some research I have done nurture has explained a person hereditary behavior or social behavior, but has nothing to do with how they physically appear which can be traced back to nature taking over. Genes is what gives a person their physical appearance, genetics is nature. Am I wrong, half-way correct or correct?
