    race (ras) n. 1. One of the major zoological subdivisions of mankind, regarded as having a common origin and exhibiting a relatively constant set of genetically determined physical traits.

    US Socialist said "human race" - I, however, said nothing of the sort. Like I said before, race is a social construct.

    Please reiterate and elaborate; as written, it makes no sense.

    It's a linguistic blip that you are taking far too seriously. Most of biological science has realized that race is not the stiff category that it was once thought of in Victorian times. Racial classifications is really only helpful in creating broad, liquid but subjective groupings from similar geographical regions. Once you start to delve into the specifics, race, as a classification, falls apart under scrutiny.

    Tell that to the people who are being robbed, raped, murdered, mutilated and abused by one segment of the population daily. Tell that to the people who have been rooked out of their life savings by charlatans like Madoff. Tell it to the folks who have lost their life savings due to the benevolence of the bankers who steal their property ...

    Care to identify a time when everything was perfect so we can compare and contrast?

    I don't see it that way, and I would imagine most other people wouldn't either, but have it your way if you insist.
