Pretty much .

Race is stupid .

We're stupid.

Racism didn't even start 'til not too long ago.

People are people.



That's wrong. Racism have existed for ages. A basic understanding of history shows this.

You are claiming that race purely has a biological meaning. Race has a biological and social construction. This forum states that we all originated from the same place therefore there should be no physical division among people. Race can also be defined as a vast group of people bounded together by history or ancestry.
if this was only about skin colour the topic should be called No Different Skin Colours?!

Its wrong to claim that there are no different races.

While it is believed we all originate from the same specie/cell/organism... We have evolved into several different races.. Blacks and yellows and reds and whites... ^_^

Religous views: We're the children of Adam and Eve

Scientific Views: We're monkeys

Either way we are still one race lol.

Scientifically speaking, there are currently 4 races of humans on the planet.

(1) Original Cro-Magnon. There are very few left of this variety. They tend to be a lot taller than your average human, and sort of look like your traditional image of the big Nordic Viking. This is Homo Sapiens Sapiens.
(2) Cro-Magnon / Modern Man mix. Might as well be all Modern Man. Only very slight genetic variations, and they tend to be heartier than others.
(3) Modern Man - a blend of many of the 12 original regional variants of Homo Sapiens.
(4) True Human - a human that consists of genes from all original 12 regional variants of Homo Sapiens and Cro-Magnon genes as well. This is the culmination of the Human Experiment. Very few True Humans exist right now, but as we go forward into this new century, more and more will continue to be born.

Well, in my mind race =/= just skin color. I mean, what about the cultures? You can't say African culture is the same as European culture, or vice versa. I don't think race is only about skin color, it's not that easy. And what about facial features? If Asians = Africans, then how would their eyes or shape or hair texture or anything else evolve that way?

But that's just me. This theory is probably right to most people.

Race is more about physical characteristics. If you are talking about being bound together by history and social constucts then you're talking about ethnicity. They often go hand in hand but there's a difference. Two nations side by side can share practically identical physical features meaning they are of the same race, but have completely different traditions and language making them different ethnic groups.

This is actually a thread not a forum..
And if you really think about it, it's not just about skin color.. it's about
Eye color and hair color too.. which I should have probably mentioned earlier

But everyone has their own opinions.

i do agree in part with the first tatement, however, the second one is a big bluff, only the slaves did, not the population of the entire planet. But i also think another reason why there is no race is because if we look back to our geneology, think about it, how many bloodlines and from how many countries our familie came from, we r all a big unique blend.
