skywire said: If you were talking about skin colour, then this would make sense. But you are speaking about 'race', which is a word that is used to refer to a fuzzy concept that has no clear scientific definition. You might as well have said "Of course phlogiston flows. Things do change temperature, after all."

hamanu said : "When people say race has no biological basis what they mean is not that blue eyed parents won't have blue eyed children, what they mean is that the choice of what physical characteristics constitutes a race has no biological basis.
As proof: I am considered a member of 6 different races acording to 6 different cultures. The fact that y'all racially pure people can't agree on what race I am proves that the choice of features that delineate races is completely arbitrary, and hence race has no biological basis. QED."
