Did the fact that there is actually just the one human race get lost in all of this comment deliberately?

By any actual correct definition of the term 'race' the last time there were recognisably separate 'human races' was when Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens both roamed the globe.

There is only one human race existant now.

.....and it seems to me that to hate or dislike huge sections of our own race just cos they look a little bit different is as dumb as it gets.

I could care less whether people have a liking or dislike of dating blondes, red-heads, black or white people - if that is all it is - some people are just going to be like that I suppose.
But to move on from that and to try and 'justify' a base and illogical person prejudice with nonsense about 'race' and 'racial purity' is just pathetically risible IMO.

....so pathetically risible that it is being left behind more and more, thankfully.

(and besides the debate about the ethics, whys and wherefores of who you should and should or should not dislike/hate the genetic diversity arguement is the final clincher for me; we are not a very diverse species and that is not a good thing.

We endanger our race by maintaining this 'specialisation' and lack of diversity; it's a pretty stupid thing to tolerate nevermind actively make worse.

We should be encouraging more and more mixing if we really do give one about our 'race'.)

This is the reality we live in......right or wrong!!!! Good post Nathraq.

The word "racism" is like an octopus with far reaching tentacles. A person like myself who is as far from a racist as one can possibly be gets snatched by one of those tentacles because of a definition in a dictionary. According to the dictionary I can't have pride in my race without being a racist. Now that the "bunk" that RANT was mentioning IMO.

Peace

what a boring, boring world this would be if everyone were the same race.



True to the fact of the matter. Maybe we should take it like how the animals mate...?

When was the last time, you seen a cat, mated with a cat? NEVER!!!!! AND u will never see it! That's just how it is..

Personally i am not racist, I like women of diffrent colours, and nationalities, when i see a goodlooking woman of any race, i must gawk at her, But when it comes to settling down, I must reproduce with my own kind. so, it will continue..
Personally i am not attracted to blond or caucasian women for that matter..

My preferences are tinged on Black and asian, and arab women, But when it comes to dating, i will turn to my black sistas. peace out..

This reminds me of when I was a teenager and my now Father in Law had a little talk about me dating his daughter.

"It's not that I have anything against mixed marriages, its just, what about the kids? What do they have to go through growing up, trying to find out who they are?"

Imagine that, a white man filling me in on how hard it is for children of mixed descent to find their racial identity. I pose the same question to you that I posed to him over 14 years ago...Are you mixed? If not, then what can you possibly know about finding your racial identity? Thank you for your concern and all, but let those who deal with it worry about it. I think there is a bit of jungian projection with comments like these, perhaps you mention people having problems because you yourself have a problem with it? Just a thought.

The fact of the matter is, it is only racists from both sides that I have ever even heard that crap from. Usually it is from whites, but I have heard it from blacks as well. I for one have never had a problem with my racial identity as I was raised to know that I am mixed, and that I am not one or the other. My Mother and Father obviously were not racists, but they were realistic about the world we lived in and they let me know that as long as I do not try to fully identify with any one group then I will probably be fine, and I was.

I for one never really had any problems growing up, other than the daily question "What are you, I mean, ethnicity wise?" It did get annoying, but I always did kind of like the way people tip-toed around the subject as if asking me if I was gay or something.

As for racial pride....I tend to think that people who have nothing to be proud of usually look beyond accomplishments to find something to be proud of, i.e. race. Call me kooky but I will reserve my pride for that which I am responsible for, not something that had nothing to do with me in any way shape or form. Try to find pride in accomplishment, not circumstance.


It's times like this that I am thankful for being of mixed descent, it is much easier to see all the B.S that comes from both sides whenever this issue is brought up. One question though, for you or anyone really, why is the concept of existing without a single "race" so hard to understand? I mean, does that much of your life seriously revolve around the fact that you are white (or black for that matter)? If so, then why? For me, my race(s) is really never an issue, and outside of those pesky little forms that make me fill in "other", I never really think about my race.

Look at that, easy to see who is conservative and who is liberal.

ANyways what's wrong with dating outside of the race? Love asian, and black, and hispanic, and white, and indian(although never seen one in real life but hey, female is female right?) As long as you fit my standards we can have fun. A little young to be thinking of getting married or whatever but for some "fun" in my prime!

My standards? Smarter then a blonde bimbo *****, also known as cheerleader or B3, and can tell between fat rolls and whats up top. Other then that, who cares? If they make you laugh, if you can go out and see a movie or eat dinner without wanting to use the fork to clean your head of your brain when they talk what does race have to do with it?

Uhm, usually? I suppose you meant to say rat.

However, I've seen lots of black cats mate with orange tabbies, longhairs with shorthairs, etc etc... an analogy much closer to the mark when talking about alleged human "races". Blacks and whites and asians are not separate species, or anything even close to it. In fact the genetic variation among humans is less than within almost any other species, we are remarkably alike even for a single species.

I don't hate black people (in fact I have black friends). I just prefer that black stick with black, white stick with white, Oriental with Oriental, etc. There's nothing wrong with loving one's race as long as it doesn't come to the point where you hate the others.


I have black friends?!?! I hope you understand that by saying that it makes you look a whole lot worse.

Yeah well i meant dog. when was the last time you seen a cat mated with a dog? Forget all that trash of interacial dating, and all that crap.. there are going to be problems, double ina inter racial marriage. clashes of culture...

If, which I will never do, marry a caucasian woman, and she calls me the N***** word, what sense does that make? Umm, i will beat the lights out of her, if she utters that word..

anyway my point is, you need to keep to one's own clan. After all, I don't think my ancestors, having gone through much suffering, will want me to ever go down that road.. peace out...

You are comparing a dog and a cat mating to a black person and a white person. We are not different species

Speaking as half black half white myself, its interesting to see this thread.

Lets just say every race holds a piece of the puzzle, if we stay isolated we will never see the big picture.

Still, I guess its what you beleive in overall. Are you placed on this Earth to reproduce like a bunch of farm animals? or are you here to learn and evolve your soul?

But we are diffrent races... The point is, there will and will always be conflict between whites and non-whites, intermarrying will not solve the problem.

Only with true resolve we will be able to approach the giant problem of race..

But "race" is a scientifically meaningless term.

Literally, it means nothing. It's an 18th century holdover (from primitive "scientists" trying to justiify slavery no less), humans are something like 99.99% genetically identical. "Race", biologically, simply doesn't exist. Ask any competent genetecist.

The genetic difference between human "races" is insignificant compared to the differences between even different breeds of housecats.

In the real world "Race" exists, but only as a social construct - a fiction that is widely believed. It has nothing to do with biology.

I have read this entire thread and found it horrifying. I am disgusted at the attitude of fellow ATS'ers- Deny Ignorance! Bah!

You might know how to solve an n-dimensional space problem or use Gaussian Co-ordinates with ease but if you cant discern that the only difference between a " white " and a "black" person is the level of melanin in their skin, then I am sickened.

Now Michael Jackson has done some pretty nasty things to his body and he is Whiter than white so do you say that its okay for whites to breed with him/it ?

In another 20 years or so when genetic engineering reaches a particular level it would be possible to make even the most pure bred Negroid embryo to grow into a pure "Aryan " then what will you say about your love for your race??
Do you know that the "Aryans" Hitler sought are in reality modern day Iranians? They are the closest to the ancient "Aryans" followed by Afganistanis( Yeah! those cavemen of BinLaden's clan) and the Indians?
It’s just the climate that differentiates the German Blue eyed blonde haired pale skinned person with the dark skinned, brown-eyed Indian person?
And yet people talk about "race" ?

If you love that your skin is white and your hair is blonde and your eyes are blue and segregate yourself with that then you might as well say that you drive a Cadillac and that you shop at Ch DIOR or that you go to this country club or that. It hideous to even think like that!! I am shocked, I am saddened.


We say America, we say Europe, we say we live in the Developed world but what does this kind of thinking show? No better than Savages. My tribe is better than yours is !
Why? I dont know they just are, so dont mix with us!.......

Even the third world has a broader mind than this. Different races have mixed for centuries but in the so-called developed world where we "lead" humanity into the future we have these Paleolithic thoughts it is shocking!!

The only difference that we call "races" is a differences in the shades of brown. It’s stupid! Other than albinos who of us are truly white as in milk white? None! Just a light shade of brown.

This thread has been a revelation for me, I saw ATS as a community with a certain degree of intellectuality but now I realize what it truly is and I am shocked at my folly to believe so!
Ignorance denied Indeed!

Divide and rule. Best way to control the Human race is to turn them against each other then make each race feel they are more superior then the other.

Around here, if you're a white girl and don't want to date a black guy, you're accused of being racist. Talk about guilt trip.

It's not racism to not like interracial dating and/or marriage. My issue is this (for those who blatantly ignored most of my post) :

I don't mind as much if you really LOVE each other. But too many times it's because the black guy wants a white woman because it makes him look cool. That black guy, in effect, is saying that blacks are inferior.

My husband, for example, hates red hair. Doesn't mean he hates redheads...just doesn't like the color hair. I'm surprised people don't scream discrimination for THAT!

I also think it's being encouraged by the NWO shills to break down any racial/national barriers.

I always took it for granted I'd marry white, since I'm predominantly white. For some reason it never occurred to me to do otherwise.

haha. its the other way around here in the U.K.


Some white girls only date black guys, like they are a toy.

Just shows if one way exsists there is always an opposite else where.

Genetic engineering? Why on earth will i want to whiten my skin? i love being Black and I am proud. also, as a black person I see the world diffrently, than a white person. I have friends of diffrent races, this thread, wasn't to insult anyone, but to deny the ignorance, and the Lies conducted, by that Gallup poll. Are we forgetting Katrina people?

And what are the lies in the Gallup poll?
What does the Gallup poll have to do with Katrina?

How could you think stating that your against interracial dating would not insult people? It insults me. My wife is not the same as me and my two children are of mixed race.

Racism by any other color.

Why is this "essential"?

I would think tolerance and understanding is far more essential.
