Do half-elves meed the racial prerequisite for Human and Elven racial feats?

I think I know the answer to this (yes) but just wanted to make sure, here is my reasoning.

Racial Heritage: Benefit: Choose another humanoid race. You count as both human and that race for any effects related to race. For example, if you choose dwarf, you are considered both a human and a dwarf for the purpose of taking traits, feats, how spells and magic items affect you, and so on.

Elf Blood: Half-elves count as both elves and humans for any effect related to race.

The first link/feat shows that "any effects related to race cover feat prerequisites. The second is what half-elves get, which is worded the exact same way.

Yes they can.

As per these two FAQs (Link1, Link2), Half-Elves and Half-Orcs "may select racial favored class options, archetypes, traits, and so on, as if they were a full member of both races (a half-elf can select elf and human rules elements, a half-orc can select human and orc rules elements)."

thanks for the links, doesn't seem they would be necessary given the above, but it's always nice to have confirmation.
