I couldn’t immediately find the references I’ve consulted in the past, but here’s one site that contains a number of Darwin’s racist comments from The Descent of Man:

It’s a bit of a silly site, but the quotes are genuine enough, and one of them even touches specifically on the social aspect of evolution that you mention. (The negro race is less fully developed than whites because they take pleasure in such tings as shrinking and wearing pieces of their enemies, and think it’s noble to commit suicide.)

I know he had quite a few racist remarks. He was a product of his times. President Lincoln thought blacks were inferior too.

Of course realize that he's talking about the actual actions of primitive tribes of the time.
