Although there is theories that Caucasians and Asians is a mix of homosapiens and neanderthals (but its not 100% confirmed yet). While Africans are just homosapiens.

So technically we are one race and not several races. Mostly its due to biological differences of climate changes from what i get which is why there are some variants.

In the same way a dog breed is not a different race just because of a fur colour or some variants, its still the same way.

Here is a white shepherd dog



Here is german shepherd dog.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Shepherd


Here to quote from Wikipedia.
The German Shepherd and the white German Shepherd are the same dog, though their coat colours vary. The White Shepherd breed was officially recognized by the United Kennel Club on April 14, 1999. It has the same origins as the White Swiss Shepherd (Berger Blanc Suisse, Weisser Schweizer Schäferhund), which is recognized as a separate breed by the Hogg Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). White Shepherds often have longer fur than the traditional German Shepherd, and do not always have a double coat. The standard calls for less angulation in the front and rear hip and shoulder bone structure. Additionally, the desire for a flat topline, and the acceptability in the conformation ring to have either plush or long coats. These differences give White Shepherds an overall more square and upright look and lighter frame as compared to the show lines of German Shepherds, and they have very different side gait when comparing movement.

Once again Deyre, you are in the wrong here.
That's like saying a German Shepherd is the same as a Chihuahua.
They aren't.
but on the human side you are right

Umm no. Its still a Shepherd dog with some different variants from the German Shepherd dog. Just like humans, if the theory is correct. But basically we are one race, just like this is one race from German Shepherd dog.

He's right. Then if Black White Asian and Hispanic are all combined as one race, there's no such thing as racism.

More or less.

I had trouble seeing how Caucasian and Asians differs if they are from homosapiens and neanderthal. This article made sense, they seem to be more related to neanderthal than the typical Europeans as of today, we have like 2 or 4% of it from what i heard.
Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2952418/Neanderthals-interbred-longer-modern-humans-east-Asia-DNA-reveals.html

So this feels like the puzzle is starting to set in, in terms of origins. But i agree with you.

Although i guess this is where stereotypes comes from that Asians are smart (Really dont like it, i mean such jokes in general but) the thing is neanderthal had bigger brains, so i am not sure if that had anything to do with it but thats what wikipedia says atleast but wherent the best good looking people.

Humans are one SPECIES, with several varieties or races. The dog is a subspecies of the grey wolf, with several varieties or races. Also, the term "race" has no significant scientific meaning.

The thing is we are technically one race.

Asians have like 15 to 30% dna from neanderthal.
Caucasians have 2-4% dna from neanderthal
Africans are pure homosapiens with no mixture from neanderthal.

Basically neanderthal are like known for having bigger brains but they are not the best good looking people to say the least : 3

I think that is what he saying. In any case, race seems like an extra classification that has no real scientific merit. Some racist believe that blacks and whites are separate species altogether.

It has been often noted.

Humans is silly.

You beat me to it. This.
We are the same species, not the same race.

That's what I was saying about "race" - is not a scientific classification. But if used, its meaning refers to varieties within one species or subspecies. It is wrong to equal "species" to "race".
