So you don't believe the concept of race exists...?
Whether he believes in race or not, I think (with all due respect) that you might be missing the point. A few posters on this thread seem to have problems with equal opportunity policies, but have implied that society would benefit from state intervention in the form of race-based policies. It'd just be nice to get to the bottom of how we're supposed to embrace these "differences" in practice without restricting individual freedoms.
Irrespective of what their arguments may be, race is a physical reality and is proven by our genomes.
As indicated by the thread starter, many choose to ignore the science and for whatever their own agenda's might be are trying to propagate the idea that the concept of race 'does not exist'. They're almost like the Creationists who ignore science and archaeology in order to suit their own pre-conceived views.
