    An unhealthy way of dealing with it is to ignore it, call it a "social construct". The dumbest way to deal with it is to say that there are no races and that there is just 1 race, the human race, instead of correctly identifying it as the human species with different subspecies. But by far the worst way to "cure" the race problem is to cheer for the destruction of the diversity that the the simple fact that humanity has various races. If we would have no races, just 1 race, we would be less than dogs. Dogs have different breeds (races), each with its own unique traits. Well, maybe dogs are bad example because there is no human equivalent to the chiuahua. But rather, humans are more like wolves. There are a great deal of wolf subspecies, each subspecies being different than the other due to the fact that it evolved and grew in a different environment and because of that, the Canidae branch of the animal kingdom is much more interesting.
    Cheap in the financial sense to gauge patterns of disease and work toward understanding their biological basis. I suggest you re-read my post, I'm not as far away from you as you think on the matter, but I just see it as a decent tool for biomedical research for lack of others.

    in germany actually live about 500.000 black germans, also named afro-germans (but i donīt like this word).

    germany has been all the time in his history an country of immigration. the first black people came to germany at the time of the roman empire.

    Hmm, maybe indeed, the word unique is too rashly used there.

    The correct way to phrase it is: each race has traits and characteristics either complete or in very high proportions which make each race unique. This I think is more accurate.

    Though what I said was pretty true on some level. From cosmetic things like eye color and hair color and hair style. For examples, blacks have that curly hair sort of thing way more native americans or chinesse. Hazel/brown eyes are the most common eye color in the world because all races have it, and some races, only have that and cannot have, as a genetic stereotype, any other eye color. Same for hair.

    The deeper things are health related. One example is the disease part because it is an uncontroversial and scientifically acknowledged fact.

    Addressing the initial statement addressed the rest of it.

    No, it's a question. I'm curious what people believe the answer to be.
