    there are just one human race.

    if you have two poodles, one white and one black, none will tell you that they are two different poodle races.
    same is at human beings.
    they looks different, that´s all.

    He likely meant either ethnicity or, members of the "Homo" Genus

    No, I asked...I didn't define anything. Why are you afraid of the question?

    ...but that doesn't change the fact that we still describe people as asian, black, arabic, etc... and that when we say these words, people know what we mean.
    We also call people Irish, Catholic, and Southern too.

    I'm not asking people what I think. I'm asking people what they think.

    If people start living even in Mars and define Marsian features (which I leave it to you imagination to define) they still would be our human race.

    Race? As in species? 1

    Race, as in analogous to dog breeds? Heaps, depending on how specific you are.

    Race, in the second definition, is a way of classifying groups of people by physical characteristics unique to geographic locations. It's fairly arbitrary and inapplicable to individuals, making it pretty much useless beyond vague identification.

    i must allways laugh, when i hear that germans are blonde and blue-eyed.
    cause most aren´t so.
    maybe 5% are blonde and blue-eyed.

    in example is my boy-friend black-coloured and pure prussian.
    his ancestors moved in the year 1918 from africa to germany.

    The US: we're lame when it comes to classifying races - we choose skin color . . . and that's pretty much it. We're quite stupid. Other cultures opt for a more complicated thing; skin tone, hair texture, facial features, etc etc etc. It's more interesting.
    Well, I've read posts here and elsewhere that classify Hispanics as a race when they can be caucasian, Amer-indian, African or, more usually, a mix of all three. Race is a socio-political construct and has little to do with genetics.

    'Hispanic' is a contrived ethnicity - it's not a 'race' categorization.

    Doesn't change your point. which I agree - it all depends on society.
