Yup, I believe that humans are all the same race and I’m not bothered with skin pigmentation, eye color, gender, hair thickness, bone density, muscle tone and dna. If we want to classify people we can continue down to the individual.

I follow the news and I’m not happy with the way we portray it. Sure the world faces problems and I would like to see us fix them. I find that the mainstream news leaves us with more questions than answers. Imagine if it was different. I’d like to see a world where journalist had to end their reporting with possible solutions for debate and not just: “it could happen to you!”

I’m fairly occupied with the Saga and making it move forward. We all have a role to play :)

I just don't understand this perspective. How can you still believe everyone is the same race when you've traveled the world? The differences for example in IQ and culture between you and Africans is too vast to simply gloss over as we are all the same?

It would still be the same race? Humans are different and have evolved throughout history but you would still call Africans, Asians and Europeans for humans?

Wouldn’t a new race involve aliens?

Humans share a genealogical lineage. Most biologists and anthropologists do not recognize race as a biologically valid classification, in part because there is more genetic variation within groups than between them.

but genetic racial differences include differences in the central nervous system, including the brain. The different racial groups breath differently, bleed differently, sweat differently, and die differently. You seem to think others are judging by just skin color and physical traits, but it's your perception of humans that's only skin deep and unscientific at that.
