People will get hurt here.

No, just the stupid ones with double-digit IQ's will be hurt. People NEED to get past this fear of talking about race. It only feeds the monster.

Again I'd say the Asian Tigers - especially China.
In southern Africa it seems like neo-colonialism (which the former "liberationist" socialist parties forever accuse the US of doing), but I hope over time forces in China will moderate their form of operating globally.

The point is that they import English teachers and go to great lengths with their "can do" attitude.
How many Westerners (or Africans) are learning a Chinese dialect?
None that I know.
Who will soon have the bilingual advantage?
And they already outnumber all other individual groups in any case.
They can shift their own people around the globe as "cheap labor".
And they usually work hard, and see an opportunity rather than excuses.

A question that has no definitive answer surely.

Our knowledge and technology is a result of many different inputs from every country/creed and race so its a joint effort.

It must also include ideas that have held us back.

So I could not say what race as it is a bogus question. The one thing that has shaped the world today is either hunger or war

I can't decide, the honey bees have a lot of 'races'; unlike humans which belong to only one race.

I chose the honey bee because it helped angiosperms multiply. The flowering plants became food for most of the animal kingdom.

Go honey bees!

Negroid is a race. It is not racist to say negroid. Caucasians by far. Deny it all you want but don't get mad if people don't agree with you.


Negroid? So you call blacks negroids aka negroes aka n*****s? Yea i bet you do. I bet that word that just melts off your racist lips like a hot knife to butter. You know you love it.

Anyways im not taking away from whites.They really did contribute to the world in huge ways, some ways good, and others horrid. Just like they invented the atomic bombs, and created the AIDS virus and spread that **** in Africa, then tried to spin it saying it was the blacks ****ing monkeys lmao.

edit: i dont blame whites for the above, i know it was the jewlluminati who did it lols
edit on 20-9-2011 by BladeofTroy because: add more to the story

Only if you're somehow suggesting you've somehow gotten "hurt" here. Emo? Where did that come from?

If we're talking historically, perhaps it's the Native Americans.

As a vegetarian my favorite staples are potatoes, tomatoes, maize (corn, I suppose), squash and pumpkin.

They were the greatest farmers ever, I think (although by today's movies you'd think they were all hunting buffalo).

Potatoes changed Europe, and maize changed southern Africa.

Also, while enjoying German beer, I like my tobacco.

In physical anthropology the term is one of the three general racial classifications of humans — Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid. Under this classification scheme, humans are divisible into broad sub-groups based on phenotypic characteristics such as cranial and skeletal morphology.



The term has both Greek and Latin etymological roots. It literally translates as "black resemblance" from negro/niger (black), and -oeidēs, equivalent to -o- -o- + -eidēs having the form of, derivative of eîdos form.[5] The earliest recorded use of the term "Negroid" came in 1859.[6] In modern use, the term is associated with "the division of mankind represented by the indigenous peoples of central and southern Africa".[7]


Negroid is not a pejorative term. I also fail to see how saying that white people have made the most contributions to the World is racist. They have. It doesn't mean other races are in any way inferior. Also, you asked the question so don't call me racist when I answer.
