According to some who would perpetuate the idea of seperate races... yes. The distinction has been used in various professions, including the medical field. Doesn't mean it's right, though.

I don't recall the name, but it's an idea that everyone needs to be one color. Wish I could be of more help but I don't really have an interest in it all.

Likely George Soros. :p

I doubt I could survive a world so boring where everyone thinks, looks and acts the same. The world's stomachs would be fed by McDonalds and our minds fed by who knows what kind of uniform mental pablum.

No thanks

I wonder why we make Alien races all one color.

I know there are many races - - but in each race they are all clone like.

Could it be archetypes?

Interesting question.

There is one race amongst Homo Sapiens. It is the Human race. The human genome was decoded a while back and there was no specific gene for Asian or African. There are genes that decided what color your skin will be and what color your eyes will be.

To answer your question there is one race.

If the Tea Party is another race of humans, then we're in trouble. How dare they upset the left/right paradigm by aligning themselves in the middle. That's not human, it's... eerp... (words fail me).

So far, all we can prove the existence of on earth, is one: the Human race.

But by all means, if we can really prove another one exists, light up the boards!

Recently I read a thread where a poster declared a particular race was prone to criminal activity. The member was adamant that this was so and all one had to do was look at the prison population or crime statistics.

That is textbook racism


So suggesting that one look into facts is "racism"? No, it's just the truth.
Just where do you liberals get these ideas anyway?

No, it's not the truth. The historical record proves it:




"Race" first appeared in the English language around the 17th century. North Americans began to use the term in their scientific writings by the late 18th century. Racism was developed and popularized by scientists in the 19th century, as they were regarded as purveyors of truth. At the time this ideology also explained political and economic conflicts in various parts of the world and legitimized the dominant role of British capitalism in the world economic system. Racism is universal and is evident in many different ethno-racial groups. It is not limited to white groups.
By the mid-19th century, there was general agreement that the worlds population could be divided into a variety of races: groups of people who shared similar phenotypical attributes, eg, skin colour, hair texture. This process of race categorization is referred to as racialization and is necessary for the emergence of racism as an ideology.

By the way, the crass assumption about my personal political affiliation is unappreciated.

Pretty well said.

As long as we don't fall into the trap of thinking that, because our concept of race is an artificial social construct, so racism doesn't exist... It may not be an entirely accurate term, but it's an unfortunate truth that humans will and do discriminate based on a perception of race, whether or not that perception has any validity.

I strongly and passionately disagree


Seriously, I've been taking issue with the need for equalization for a long time. Being of mixed race myself I have great appreciation for differences in color, culture and abilities of various races. And my use of the word race has nothing at all to do with racism or a "feeling of superiority".

I travel a lot and on my travels I want to experience people who are different than those people of my race and culture. When in Asia, I eat Asian food, enjoy Asian customs, get into Asian mentality. When in Africa, likewise. In the process of doing this I have discovered that there are huge differences, and that there are different races and cultures of people.

As I see it there are two mainstream viewpoints and both are false:

1. We are all the same

why?

2. We are all different and thats bad or We are all different and some are superior to others.
Define superior?

The third viewpoint, which does not get much airtime is:

3. We are all different and thats great!!!!
To what extent and how are we different?
The third viewpoint allows for a unity without suppressing diversity.

The idea that oneness requires sameness is the cause of many problems we've faced throughout history. I can be different than someone and even in total disagreement with anothers lifestyle and beliefs but still respect and appreciate that difference.

The pressure of equalization promoted by the "politically correct" lacks such a distinction. It will try to make women be like men or blacks be like whites and vice versa.

Black people...and yes they are black...are different. But that does not mean anything negative. It means that if they honor their roots, their culture, their way, their style, their passions, they will integrate much more easily than if they are forced to behave like the white american. And vice-versa. Unfortunately, nowadays it is almost forbidden to see differences.
Black people are not black they are brown. All Humans are a shade of brown. Polar bears' skin is black. Honor what roots? Senegalese roots? west african roots? This is silly don't you think? How do "white"(light brown) americans behave?
In the analogy of oneness, every puzzle piece is unique. No puzzle piece is the same as another. And yet, placed properly, they all form ONE puzzle.

Are human superior to a mountain lion,eagle or a crocodile? We haven't changed much in 120,000 years.

I mean eagle have superior vision compared to humans.

Can we swim like a crocodile?

Can we out run a puma?

No.

We are inferior to those animals right?
