Text: "determined, and the division of mankind into different ‘races’, proposed by early (white European) anthropologists on the basis of physical characteristics such as skin colour, hair type and skull measurements, is by many modern cultural anthropologists now considered to be more a social or mental construct than an objective biological fact

Comment: I have no idea why the Guidelines wish to enter into this discussion, in such a prolix manner.

Suggestion: Delete the passage - or at least replace "many" by "most" and end with "considered to be a social or mental construct".
