Sorry for the long cite but I wanted to show the scientific/genetic aspect of race:
"A social construct
The problem is, what constitutes a race might seem obvious to most people, but race doesn't mean much from a biological standpoint.
Genetically speaking, nothing differentiates one race from another. All humans share the same set of genes. There is no African gene, no Caucasian
gene, no Asian gene.
Certainly, genetic differences exist and even small differences can have big effects; consider that animals as different as chimpanzees and humans
share 99 percent of their genetic code.
And even among humans, genetic variations obviously exist between individuals. Some genes are expressed, or "turned on," in some people and not in
others. Some genes tend to develop mutations, which may alter body functioning or physical appearance, and these mutations get passed on to
But these variations don't occur neatly along racial lines. Scientists calculate that there is an average genetic variation of 5 percent between
racial groups. But that leaves a whopping 95 percent of variation that occurs within racial groups.
Even the most obvious distinguishing factor -- skin color -- can vary enormously within a race, said Joseph L. Graves Jr., an evolutionary biologist
at Arizona State University West in Phoenix. And the dark skin of a sub-Saharan African is not unlike the dark skin of a Caucasoid in India, added
Graves, author of a 2001 book, "The Emperor's New Clothes: Biological Theories of Race at the Millenium."
That's why most scientists say race is a social construct, not a biological one. In other words, social rules determine what races are and what they
mean." (Tuesday, May 07, 2002. By Byron Spice, Science Editor, Post-Gazette. www.post-gazette.com/healthscience/20020507hgene0507p3.asp)
Both empirical (scientific) evidence and the bible, we technically are one race. Science says that we evolved from single-celled amebas and the Bible
says that we all came from Adam and Eve. So this means that we still are one race.
So there might be a continuation in the evolution of humans (survival of the fittest) we adapt then we will all be a ummm... a little more
PS sorry for the big copy and paste, the whole artical is a lot bigger and I wanted to just use this part so you didn't have to read the hole web
page and I did cite the source.. Hope this is not against the board roles??
