    Only inferior ethnicities are prone to racism...

    So, you are saying that people without black genetic heritage get sickle cell anemia? Or that leaprosy affects whites at the same rate as non-whites? Do tell.
    No hair type or skin color is specific to any one ethnicity.
    Textures, predominant hair colors, heights, melanin levels, weights, disease susceptibility are all linked to various lineages.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    In order to respond to these questions you're first going to have to define what "black" is, and what "white" is. Are you prepared to do that, or are you going to avoid that question just like every other racist that is confronted with that question?

    Sickle cell anemia is a good example of ignourance because as everyone knows its a "black" illness.

    Except it isnt its actually a illness common from people who are from places with high levels of malaria.

    It isn't necessarily only black, but is most prominent in those of a heritage from south of the Saharan region of Africa.

    Racist? Riiiiight because I refuse to use P.C. jargon to refer to people, okay, sure. I don't debate with people who blindly throw out the racist label. How about you then explain the genome differences in those found of different heritages. People of Western European heritage usually have a lighter skin/hair color than those born in the Asian and African regions of the world, whereas people born south of the equator tend to be darker, but yeah, I guess we are ALL the same genetically. BTW I am not saying these differences are preferential, superior, etc. THAT would be racist, I am simply stating, if you can see past that little PC worldview of yours, that PEOPLE are different, if you can't see that, then you are dishonest or blind. See ya.

    I'm not blindingly throwing it out there. The recognition of race as a "biological fact" is inherently racist, as it is making presumptive generalizations about "races".

    How about you then explain the genome differences in those found of different heritages.
    How about you explain the fact that it is more common to be genetically more similar to someone of a "different race" than someone of the same "race". Actually, how about you explain how races biologically exist and support your claim with some scientific proof?

    People of Western European heritage usually have a lighter skin/hair color than those born in the Asian and African regions of the world, whereas people born south of the equator tend to be darker
    Well no ****. But this really has nothing to do with race, as these changes aren't discretized but change gradually over a large geographical area. You are attempting to put a dividing line in there somewhere to define two different "races", however what you don't realize is that any attempt at division into races is completely arbitrary and unscientific. This is why you are unable to actually answer the questions that are repeatedly asked of you: What is race? How many different races are there? How are they defined? You are unable to do so because it is impossible to do so. Instead you resort to dodging those questions and going on an irrelevant rant.

    BTW I am not saying these differences are preferential, superior, etc. THAT would be racist, I am simply stating, if you can see past that little PC worldview of yours, that PEOPLE are different, if you can't see that, then you are dishonest or blind. See ya.
    Like I said before, the mere belief that races have any basis in biology is racist in itself. "Jews have big noses" is just as racist as "Jews run the world". One might be more hateful than the other, but they are both equally racist. You are trying to justify your racism by saying that it's not hateful, which somehow makes it acceptable. It doesn't.

    THE DNA IS GENETICALLY COMPATIBLE BUT THE GENOMES ARE NOT ALIKE, NOT ALIKE=DIFFERENT. Again, you assume racism because you want to see it.

    GENOMES ARE NOT ALIKE, WHICH EQUALS D-I-F-F-E-R-E-N-T.

    So, what is it, do the genes affect color, height, and other factors based on primitive climate needs or not? People are either all the same or they are not. I know, the concept of people having different charecteristics offends you, but it is reality, again, it isn't wrong to have descriptions of differences, it is wrong to treat people differently just based on those differences. Get it yet?

    Races are set to charecteristics, to ignore the fact that we have differences is naive, at best, dishonest at worst, and wrong either way.

    I dunno; a good friend of mine (and her daughter) both have it. They're half Puerto Rican, half white. Straight light brown hair, hazel eyes, skin paler than mine.
    So I don't guess it's a "black disease". I don't know any black people who have it (then again, I don't know that many black people, period).

    Your friend and her daughter are immune to Malaria. Just pointing out the silver lining.
