    I just have a hard time believing that there are THAT many racists out and about in this day and age.
    What's "racist" about acknowledging the irrefutable fact that they have different skin color? They do.

    I understand now. Thanks for explaining it without getting pissy like some people do around here.

    For me...I just don't see it. I see class difference much faster than I see racial differences.

    Everyone will see something before the other but also believe none of the items should stop the couple from being together if they choose.

    I would see it just as wrong if someone brought up their upbringing or income levels in place of their race as reasons for them to not be together. Snobbery is more rampant then racism and is sadly widely accepted.

    That does not make the "spoon" real, no more than it makes "race" real.

    The lie is that race even exists. It doesn't.

    Race does exist. There are distinct physical differences between a black men and white men or Asian men. Now, more currently race is fading away with decades of multi-racial children but that doesn't change the fact that distinct races are not extinct.

    My opinion is race should be accepted as no different then someone having different color hair, or taller vs shorter.

    While I agree with you that race is a biological fallacy, society does recognize different races, and that is what matters in this kind of situation.

    Race does not biologically exist for two main reasons:

    1) Human characteristics are clinal. Reces are defined as discrete groups and if charecterisitcs are clinal the the definition is not satisfied.

    2) Using skin color, nose shape, hair texture etc. to group people is completly arbitrary. One could take other traits such as antimalarial genes, fingerprints, etc. and come up with much different groups.

    What matters is that society needs to pull its collective head out of its collective ass and drop the collective BS about race.
