No we can't. Not yet anyway. It isn't just a survival instinct to group people up, it is the only way we can deal with large numbers of objects. We need to make assumptions about large numbers of things in order to function. Some assumptions are more helpful, or more accurate, but we need to make them because we can't fully consider large numbers of people at one time. How many one can consider differs from person to person, but while you can fully consider 2 or 3 people, when you get up to 50 people with many varying characteristics that need consideration, you need to start simplifying them into groups.

Is there any reliable research available that proves that there really is no biological difference between the races except colour? Perhaps it doesnt belong to the discussion exacly but ive found research that says that women are less intelligent then men. Do we think there are any other differences between men and women (besides the obvious). Im not saying that I personally belive that there are differences. But I guess maybe somebody feels like finding out where I live and beheading me anyway :). Im just pointing out that opinions are opinions after all. "kill all racists" doesent seem very constructive, democratic, or pluralistic. Who else are we to disrespect and hate becus they have different opinions then us?

The differances are environmental adaption, which is natural evolution that occurs in all species.

There are only about 4 races anyway of significant environmental adaption in homo sapiens.

1) Caucassian/European/Asia

2) Negro/African

3) The natives of South, central and North America

4) Aboriginies

It is hard to tell things like intelligence etc if they are differnt because really therse a lack of understand of what is more significant nurture or nature and the sociological perspectives and how they influence the people.

The differances between gender's have been researched into and there certainly are differances in that respect but whether they are biological or sociological is another thing really

There are biological differences between people and there are large groups of people who have similar features. (It is a can of worms i'm not daring to open: the question of whether there are similar mental features between some peoples)

But race is actually just a social construct. There are so many shades of skin that people have that it is quite arbitrary where the line is drawn between one race and another.

Of course you have your right to feel this way. I do too really. I just turned against the pretty hatefull and angry tone that people here talking about racists had. They do have their right to have another opinion then us, arent they?

Well as an aspie I know what it's like to be a minority... I think to judge anyone based upon something they cannot control is stupid and biggoted... We appear to have came so far with the civil rights struggles of women, blacks, native americans, jews, japanese... Yet, now we're bashing arabs, gays, atheists, and the one historically consistent victim, the disabled or those labled with what the man considers a disability... I do feel nuero-diversity should be treated no differently than religious or racial diversity... Same goes for sexual orientation, though I am a straight guy. I am a white guy but I identify more often with people of color because I too am a minority, as are most of us on here.

My wife and I had a doctor sterilize us so we couldn't have any white-devil children. Now we are adopting Black kids to correct society's injustices.

Someday all people in the world will be one mixed race and love each other -- like we do. Of course, we'll have to eliminate those Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ... Roten Whtes ... Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ... Rotten Whites ...


Oy, These are good Goyim! They parrot what we teach them on TV and in our movies.

In your case I agree. You and your wife are evil.
