I think it was more of a nurture/nature question. Like black people aren't listening hip-hop cus they are black, as indigenous black people don't listen to hiphop. It isn't a racial thing rather than demographic.

Where? I don't see them. Are they hiding?
No, they aren't hiding. Perhaps you are blind.
Give me an example of a current "sub-species" of human.
I see you're 66. We don't use categories like Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid any longer. They're out of use, obsolete. They do not accurately reflect the reality of the situation regarding what it means to be from Europe, or Africa or wherever.Did you also learn in school that the Caucasians were all descended from Japheth, the people from Africa Ham, and the Semitic peoples (like Jews, Arabs) from Shem? Did they still teach that rubbish?
@Rachelspiks I am actually far more educated than what you seem to expect. You think there are no differences based on race, so why do we have laws to protect racial minorities? And why is the US Olympic Basketball team composed of people who I believe are black? Why are these people who I consider to be black much more prone to sickle cell anemia? Why is there a National Association For The Advancement Of Colored People? And a United Negro College Fund?I understand the field of dreams mentality: if you say it and you believe it enough times, then you can make it be true. But that is a dream. If you want to blind yourself to the differences between the races, that is just your failure to allow perception to correct your errant ideas.Recognizing a difference between races does not mean that a person is racist. It only means that we are dealing with reality.
"We don't use categories like Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid any longer." Of course YOU don't. And of course that is true of the far left crowd in academia that wants to lead young people down the road to socialism. That doesn't mean that races do not exist. If I decide to no longer use the terms Georgian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, etc., does that mean those people no longer exist?
"You think there are no differences based on race, so why do we have laws to protect racial minorities?"We don't."And why is the US Olympic Basketball team composed of people who I believe are black?"I'll have to take your word for that, because I don't know anything about sport and, what's more, I simply do not care."Why are these people who I consider to be black much more prone to sickle cell anemia?"One word: heredity. Not "race"."Why is there a National Association For The Advancement Of Colored People?"There isn't. Not where I live anyway."And a United Negro College Fund?"There isn't.Look, I realise that you Yanks take "race" very seriously for some weird reason, but the reality is that anything that can be attributed to "race" can be accounted for by genetics. A tendency to display an inherited condition like sickle-cell anaemia will be largely determined by a person's ancestry, and it just so happens that the "races" tended to not interbreed until very, very recently due to (among other things) racism.
"I understand the field of dreams mentality: if you say it and you believe it enough times, then you can make it be true. But that is a dream. If you want to blind yourself to the differences between the races, that is just your failure to allow perception to correct your errant ideas."No, that's not the way reality works. If anything, it is people like YOU who desperately cling to lies in the hope and expectation that words repeated often enough will eventually become true.
"Of course YOU don't. And of course that is true of the far left crowd in academia that wants to lead young people down the road to socialism. That doesn't mean that races do not exist. If I decide to no longer use the terms Georgian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, etc., does that mean those people no longer exist?"The "far-left crowd"? Why do people like you always have to attribute every belief to some imaginary political bias? Georgians, Byelorussians (or White Russians) and so on DO exist, but THEY ARE NOT SEPARATE RACES!! They're NATIONALITIES! Do you understand the difference?
@Rachelspiks "but the reality is that anything that can be attributed to "race" can be accounted for by genetics."YES! Races are defined genetically. It is that simple and you refuse to see it because of your indoctrination."A tendency to display an inherited condition like sickle-cell anaemia will be largely determined by a person's ancestry, and it just so happens that the "races" tended to not interbreed until very, very recently due to (among other things) racism." What are these races to which you refer? They previously existed but now they don't? Hahaha! What a silly ass argument to make."Georgians, Byelorussians (or White Russians) and so on DO exist, but THEY ARE NOT SEPARATE RACES!! They're NATIONALITIES! Do you understand the difference?" Yes, I do, and I ever said they were races. It was an example other than race to illustrate your field of dreams mentality.Yes, In the US, we have laws to protect RACIAL minorities, there is an NCAAP, and a UNCF. You may continue living in Lala Land but I live in reality. by the way, this is the US Olympic basketball team:
Don't bother to reply because this "conversation" is going nowhere. However, I suspect that you are one of those who must always have the last word and you have a special need for that, so I will let you have the last word. When I don't reply, it doesn't mean you're right; it just means it is not worth responding.
I didn't read it all but the first paragraph but you're wrong. You're on the right track but you're confusing Nationality with ethnicity. Use the word ethnicity. That is the correct word. People confuse race, ethnicity, and nationality. Nationality is just what nation you belong to.
@PoliteSpeaker Thank you for your feedback. Yes, ethnicity can apply, with certainty. Ethnicity and nationality are not mutually exclusive. They both apply. It is also mutually beneficial to always read the book before you write a book report.
Exactly and that is why ethnicity exist but race does not. Everyone gets those two mixed up.
I think you've misunderstood the question. It's not about aliens.
The physical differences are also physical adaptations to a given ecosystem. Much like other species we had to physically adapt to a given ecosystem in order to be able to function in it. Because if no adaptations where made the odds of a species surviving in a ecosystem different to their own are slim.
You know what they mean by race. They don't mean ethnicity which is real. Because there can be more difference between 2 ethnicities in Africa than there are between white and black people according to science.
@PoliteSpeaker I'm quick to go the scientific route. Because when I look at it from another perspective it leads me back to the same conclusion. Race, religion, sex and sexual orientation issues are not new. When humans get together socially, individuals can put so much weight on their on group or the groups others are part of that these groups seem to become more important then their humanity and the humanity of others. We have been fighting and killing ourselves as a species for as long as our species has been on earth because of this. It's not a new issue. It's also not exclusive to a group. All groups have and continue to do it. By taking the scientific route it allows me to look far past race, religion, sex and sexual orientation. Simply see everyone as human. It also allows me to think of a way to break the endless cycle of conflict we are looked into. A way to break that cycle before humanity engages in the war to end all wars. Because we can't break the cycle or are willing to accept the harsh reality standing before us.
Sure but race is not the word you are looking for unless you wanna use the neanderthal thing. But there are less difference between black and white people than the 54 ethnicities in Africa. Ethnicities exist. RACE DOES NOT. And when you understand that logically you have found the cure to racism but there is only 1 cause and it goes by the name of RACE.
Race is not a color — otherwise many of those in India would be considered black. Race ha a biological component that is immutable … these are many races and only 2 genders so matter how much the manipulators try to sell you
I want to thank you for this question and I want to thank everybody for their answers no matter how you answered in life we all have choices to make we choose who we want to be by the things we say and do.I believe our world is changing faster than we would ever even know I believe that we are being manipulated and we are being taken down a road that will either bite Us in the ass or bring us all together but there will be a moment in time while people are making this choice on the direction that they want to go the too many people are going to get hurt.We are all going to have to become one we are all going to have to have each other's backs. And if you don't understand this then well oh well it's your loss.So our planet everywhere on our planet is energy our energies surrounded by a force field it raises up off the ground and put in the half we are made of energy every living thing is energy everything on this planet vibrates that is energyAnd energy Never DiesWe are just one identity on this planet let's pretend there are another hundred planets just like ours out there someplace but people just like us are not like us but they are energy toIf our body is our Temple it protects something pretty special our soul or spirit our energy when our body dies our energy takes us to our next destinationNow let's pretend all those other hundred planets those people are made of energy to
So everybody's energy lives on and has to go someplace so look at it as an experiment can you get along with anybody are are you naive are you racist do you have common sense or are you just an ugly person who hates themselves so they hate everybody else maybe it's an experiment to see if you can get a a long with other types of energy anyway I think you for this question and people who make their own choices good luck I believe we are one

I've heard some people on here talking about being color blind and I don't know what that means. Because I can certainly tell the difference that someone is much lighter or darker in skin tone than me, or has freckles (I don't), or different color eyes, or whatnot. What I do value though is individualism and the idea that every person can be wildly different than another even in some arbitrary group we assign them.
Beyond race, in high school I didn't like nerds that much because I started off more of a jock. But I found a few nerds I liked. They were very different from the antisocial stereotype. I actually found some sociable nerds.
And for the nerds out there, I actually found some very smart and wise jocks. It's a huge failing to think everyone that belongs in some category society assigns are all alike.
Medical field uses ethnicities but truth is 2 ethnicities from Africa can have more differences between them than a white and black person. Race does not exist according to science.
No dude. Race and ethnicity are NOT the same thing. Science has already proven race doesn't exist and so has historical record. Get on board already. Ethnicity does exist. There are 54 ethnicities in Africa alone man. I didn't read most of what you read but that should see you straight.
@PoliteSpeaker "4) one of the main groups that humans can be divided into according to their physical differences, for example the colour of their skin; the fact of belonging to one of these groups"www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/.../race_1
at least there's some smart people around here
No you're wrong. Science and historical record proves there is no such thing as race. It is made up in our head. RACISM is the effect of believing in this idea called Race. Race is the cause of Racism. Get rid of the cause and you rid of its effect... Wake up. Ethnicity is real but RACE is NOT. Don't confuse the 2.
@PoliteSpeaker I'm sorry, but I've lived in Africa, Europe and Australia... and travelled to every continent except Antarctica. I can spot the difference between an African and a European - and anyone who pretends they can't is lying to appear woke. There are differences that are observable and certainly not in anyone's head. The fact that you get all up in arms about these differences shows your own racism, because undergirding your concern is the presumption that "different means bad".
I recommend watching this video here, which brutally dispels this wishy-washy, politically correct, egalitarian fantasy that "we're all perfectly, exactly the same" pushed by our leftist snowflake rulers in academia.https://www.bitchute.com/video/eEHfbWjmMFc5/
@BeMuse Uneducated huh? Did you know ethnicity and race aren't the same thing... Science has proven race doesn't exist... In fact, there are more difference between the 54 ethnicities in Africa than there are between white and black people according to science... You don't know what educated means man. It's not gathering knowledge...
@PoliteSpeaker You're a moron. You've proved my point. You couldn't even comprehend what I wrote about the "animal kingdom" and how subspecies/races are part of taxonomy in zoology. You have a truly weak mind.
To add insult to injury.Education: The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction.Go get an education you ignoramus. Gather some of that knowledge... Specifically you should study Zoology the sub-field of Biology that speaks specifically of what race is, and provides prime examples of race in the animal kingdom. Biology is a natural science and clearly speaks specifically about subspecies/races. If you were educated, you would be able to grasp that. You argue that “Science has proven race doesn't exist” when science clearly defines what race is and studies it. Your level of retardation is on another level.
True. Very true. And it is true. Let me tell you the truth. Science and historical record has proven race doesn't exist. But what does exist is ethnicity. And everyone who believes in race gets those 2 mixed up. There 54 ethnicities in Africa alone... There are more difference in those ethnicities than between so called black and white people... This is the cure to racism. We have to tell the world with science that race is not real. And we have to make sure they now that ethnicity is not race and nationality is not race or ethnicity.
@PoliteSpeaker I don't think that solves the problem homie. It just moves all the stupidity from race to ethnicity.
Sure. but ethnicity does exist unlike multiple races. But two ethnicities in Africa can have more differences than a black and white person. So race is so dumb and already proven to not exist biologically.
@PoliteSpeaker Exactly, just like how there is different types of Caucasian, they are not all the same. Even if they look the same there is different cultures and ethnicities around the world.
Sure thing, I'll be sure to check it out 🙂
Wrong. Race doesn't exist yes. Science has proven race doesn't exist and obviously so has historical record... But ethnicity does exist. That is the difference. There are 54 ethnicities in Africa alone. So it is nationality and ethnicity that separates people and culture aka your paradigm.
uhh. What. Anyway don't confused ethnicity with race. They are NOT the same thing. Science has proven race doesn't exist. Ethnicity does exist.
Race is not just appearance bro
You are correct, it also boil down to culture and DNA testing.
@FinalFantasyBro No you're wrong. You are confusing ethnicity with Race. Ethnicity exist according to science. Race does NOT. Even historical record breaks the myth of race.
@PoliteSpeaker I guess bone shapes, including the skull and hips — which can identify race - are just social constructs. Ethnicity - such as French British or Polish are much less distinct and more cultural. Anthropologists have argues for a long time that race does not exist — but they are social scientists. Actual scientists, including biologists, know that race does exist. Blacks and whites and Asians DO DIFFER in their DNA.
Thank you bro. Ethnicity is real but race is not. There are more difference between some of the 54 ethnicities in Africa than there are between white and black people according to science.
Yes we’ll pretend there are no differences — putting your head in the sand solves all problems!
@joesheks I didn't say that, so why are you claiming here that I did? Of course people are different, because we're all individuals, but the entire concept of "race" is hopelessly flawed, because there are no differences that actually make any real difference in the grand scheme of things.
@Nivkhia You are? Okay, I'll report you to the administrators then.
Its clear you're a bot because no one has such mindless pathetic views.
@Nivkhia I'm not a "bot", but you're clearly stupid.
@Rachelspiks yes, no meaningful differences. I wonder why Europe was so developed and Africa (still) is an absolute mess. I guess waking around with penis gourds (today) and living in huts EQUALS building gigantic cathedrals 1000 years ago!!! I guess Europe’s art and music equals drumbeats and drawings in the dirt. Seriously, you shouldn’t have the right to vote. Your views are the reason we are in the toilet — you’ve literally been brainwashed into believe garbage. Open your eyes. The anti-discrimination agenda is about you not recognizing that the differences between races is, for the most part, the reason our civilizations are so different. This is not about hate as they will convince you — they call it hate so you shut down your thinking and use your emotions only.
Maybe in hollow earth like some spiritual people talk about but on top there is no such thing as race... Ethnicity exist yes but race does not and science has already proven this.
@PoliteSpeaker thats not what I mean, I mean if you took dna samples from everyone on earth, are we actually multiple species, even though we thought we were just one? Hollow earth is just ridiculous.
Also "race" and "ethinicity" are the same thing, both are shorthands for "racial ethnicity", which is a synonym for "subspecies".
If you want to be nictpicky about it though, there is no such thing as species, because evolution is gradual, so there is no specific point at which one species becomes another, just lots of individuals who act as micro stages along the way.
No you're wrong. You speak of ethnicity. NOT RACE. Race according to science and historical record does not exist. I'm not making this stuff up lol. Everyone who thinks race exist is mixing it up with ethnicity... They are not the same thing.
@PoliteSpeaker Mongoloids, Caucasians, Negroids, Esquimaux etc...
@PoliteSpeaker ethnicity is more specific, like Han Chinese in Mongoloid category, Zulu in Negroid, Germanic in Caucasian...
@PoliteSpeaker so when people (moslty westerns) say Asian, they mean Mongoloid. When they say White, they often mean European Caucasian. And when they say Black, they mean Native Sub Saharan African.
No there are no races man. You're confusing ethnicity with race. Race does NOT exist. Ethnicity does exist. I'm not making this up. This is science. Science proves this and so does historical record. Now think. Think. If racism is an effect... Then what is the cause... RACE. And if it isn't real... Then we have the cure but aren't using it. We have science and historical record telling us it isn't real and we still won't listen.
The laws of remove the fact that people have different kind of features that will classify them as a certain race. That is not supposed to be a big deal but if you really want to make a big deal out of it then that's your problem.
But let's pretend we're just going to call it ethnicity anyways, if that's the case, it would be "ethnicitism" going on
