    is my favorite way of identifying it.

    Geography can isolate a group and influence genetic variation.

    It also influences social constructs, as in the people who live in a certain place and having enough common physical characteristics that are different from the common characteristics of a group in another place deciding they are superior to that other group. Typically to justify treating that other group badly, as in invading their land and stealing their wealth and resources.

    Racial identification is often tied to a place name, right?
