Racism and Ethnic Nationalism

Nobody, even a member of a royal family, can possibly know his/her ethnic background back to the beginning of the middle ages. I guess most of us cannot even know the names of our grandparents’ grandparents, let alone their ethnic backgrounds. Thus, I cannot understand how one can reasonably espouse racism or ethnic nationalism. Has a pure race or ethnicity ever existed?
