Do you deny there are races? Heck, even the US census has race questions.

Though they do not speak English, they are the same race as Americans.



I need you to think long and hard about what is wrong with this statement. Then get back to me.


Hey, did you know that the Japanese were once, in the days of yore, considered part of the "white race?"

But now they're not?

Funny how ideas of "race" change over the generations.

It's almost as if theories on "race" are pulled from between the cheeks.

We made both of them, so I figure they're on pretty much equal footing and both worthy of America's cautious friendship at this time.

Present day Russian values are pretty concurrent with American values, as do Japanese values albeit with them placing more importance on tradition, honor, and globalism than the average American or Russian does. Strategically speaking, good relationships with both are going to be of increasing importance as China gets more uppity in the coming years.

Well when Russians are more or less Slavic, while White Americans are primarily descended from Anglo-Saxons, Germanics and other Western European groups.

Japan is building aircraft carriers under disguise as destroyers. Who knows what else they are up to?

Race is a myth. One of the most persistent through the ages.



"Race" thus evolved as a worldview, a body of prejudgments that distorts our ideas about human differences and group behavior. Racial beliefs constitute myths about the diversity in the human species and about the abilities and behavior of people homogenized into "racial" categories. The myths fused behavior and physical features together in the public mind, impeding our comprehension of both biological variations and cultural behavior, implying that both are genetically determined. Racial myths bear no relationship to the reality of human capabilities or behavior. Scientists today find that reliance on such folk beliefs about human differences in research has led to countless errors.

People of the same race look the same. People of different races look different. Even babies know that.

Just so I understand,




Japan has attacked the US. Japan has fought war with the US. Russia has never done those. Russians are northern Europeans. Though they do not speak English, they are the same race as Americans.

The US should have better relation with Russia than with Japan.


They are the same race as Americans could bee seen as maybe a wee bit using race as a reason to be closer.

I'm glad you took the time to read the source.

Where's the source for "Even babies know?"

If you look at US elections. 95% of blacks vote for black candidates. Most whites vote for white candidates. Race is real, man.

Wow.. that's pretty blatant racism.


The United States is a cultural and ethnic melting pot. We have no real "race"

America is MAJORITY white. It's just like people say Trump is anti Muslim for restricting refugees from 7 Muslim MAJORITY countries.

This is about group solidarity, and little to do with actual perceived race. Article writers can't resist a juicy-sounding headline though; and neither can readers.

So flawed I can't even touch this thread anymore

Russia and Japan are hostile to each other. The US can use them to keep an eye on each other.

Northern European race. Russians and Americans look the same.

What were you saying about looks? Look at what can happen when Japanese and Americans get along with one another.
