OK, let me ask you then. Do you consider some human races inferior to others?

Just PM me since my ban hammer senses are tingling ... (I'm out from participating any further in this thread)

You basically just answered the question. Nice.

How ?



The idea of race is so overstated to begin with, why do we as humans need to cling to a box we check on a piece of paper? Amazing how you can put toddlers in a room and they'll play with each other without even once considering what their 'race' is. Put adults in the same room and it's a completely different story...



This thread will be entertaining. I don't know who I agree with, but play on.

In school, it is relevant because there are differing performance levels among what we identify as "races" even when controlling for other factors such as poverty and so on.  If we are to address this performance gap, then it is necessary to have data to work with.  Even if race maybe isn't the most accurate term.

A bit confused? Usually in New York and in New Jersey they give a paper during the school year that you fill out your race, gender, ethnicity etc.



I identify as a God. My name is Erebus. Provide me a tropical island with a mansion with access to the internet, worshipers on hallucinogens, a harem of beautiful women aged 25 to 35 from Australia, Sweden, Italy, Ukraine and enough riches so I'm able to live a lifestyle that conforms with my identity. If you don't comply, you're guilty of denying my existence and you'll go to jail for hate crimes. 🙏

"started" acknowledging this? It's not as if you need any kind of scientific evidence that there are different races. Are these people blind or something?

'Race', just like any form of subdivision of living creatures, is a human construction. There's a scientific consensus that all humans that aren't extinct belong to the same species and the same race.

You're kidding right? There's pretty clear biological evidence of multiple human races. Don't want to call them races? Fine, come up with another word. The fact remains that there are biological differences between different groups of people though.

Can I identify as a black attack helecopter? I mean I was born that way... xd

You can if you want to spend your life in prison. So you better identify as white attack helicopter.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

The biological differences aren't big enough to consider them different races.

There are also biological differences between you and me.
