Now, here's another question, just by adding an 's', the whole question changes.

Which humans are better, Black Humans, or Asian Humans?

How about asking it like this?

Which humans are better, White humans who explored the world on tiny wooden ships (Vikings), or White humans who explored the world on tiny wooden ships (Italians)?


Don't know.


The answers all are subjective.

Everyone loved Mother Teresa, who lived her whole life to help the poor. Everyone hated Adolf Hitler for his crimes against the world. Right? Well, there are those who still think Hitler was a misunderstood hero, and that Mother Teresa was a hypocrite.

Jeffery Dahmer was a serial killer who cannibalized his victims. Thomas Jefferson was a founding father of the United States, and he's the one who wrote the first draft of the Constitution of the United States. There ain't nobody who doesn't think Dahmer is pure evil. But the jury is split on Jefferson. An American Revolutionary hero in the eyes of many, and a decrepit slave owner in the eyes of others.

Only a racist would say that Black people or Asian people was better than the other. However, those racists actually think they're right.

People romanticize the Vikings for exploring the world on their longboats, and they glorify their prowess in battle, as they raided, pillaged, and burned their way across the northern hemisphere. The same people vilify Christopher Columbus. He, too explored the world in tiny wooden ships, but he was only looking for a new trade route. It wasn't his fault that his common cold caused countless millions of Caribbean Islanders to die of... the common cold...

It's all subjective. That is why, we can argue all day long about which humans are better than other humans.

Or maybe I'm just too cynical for my own good?

No matter how good you are at something, there will always, eventually, be someone better than you at it. That is life.

Define better, some humans beings are better than other human beings, some are faster, some are stronger, some are more beautiful, some are more intelligent, some can do things other's cannot, we all have the same potentials but we can't be superior at everything, I for example am very terrible at drawing, nothing says I can't take my time and learn to do it, practice until I'm good but as of right now there are tons of people who draw so much better than myself


I wish I knew why I thought about it in the first place. Was it wrong of me to think about such a topic?


Nah it was a good topic to mull over in your head, I think we all at times like to ponder things even when we know the answer

First off, people are not created equal. some of us are just better then others. Take me for an example, I am better then my brother.
Second, at what? I am better then my brother at card games.
Third, who is the one judging. I am better then my brother at card games.
Forth, and on what criteria are they judging. I am better then my brother at card games because I actually play card games.

It's all perception mate. Though a majority perception does tend to mean they might actually be better or worse then compared to someone else. example, my friend Nathan is better at Pokemon then me because all my friends say he is. (and I unfortunately agree, even as much as I try to prove them all wrong with countless rematches)

Finally, don't worry about it. Best to take all biased opinions with a grain of salt, but also have a fine balance of not being delusional ether. I've seen many a people that think they eat healthy, when they drink diet soda and processed foods every day. ;I
