Obviously hundreds of years of racism isn't going to go away over night. In fact the forum section "Race Relations" exemplifies that unintentionally since there is no such thing as a race. Not anymore. It's not like we look at species of golden labs and black labs and classify them by race. Dogs are the most varied species on the planet and yet we don't put them into racial groups. Why humans, why still, now? in 2013? Is this forum area named in such a way for convenience? Do they not know about Homo Sapiens being a species? Do we hold onto these notions for descriptive or traditional reasons alone? The point is that we are no longer divided races, that myth has been debunked over time along with the notion of racial superiority. In Guns Germs and Steal Yali asks this question, and J. Diamond answers it quite succinctly. So this year, for Christmas, give all the racists in your family the following book.. LOL OK , maybe not but you should read it if you are wondering about how we are truly different, or the lack there of. Or how Whites had more "cargo" when entering the new worlds. Now if you think we all that different, as a species we are not, this is likely due to "recent" near H. Sapien extinction events. I'm very interested in this topic as you can tell. You should be too !
