    Default Does race exist?

    As a biological category? Or is it a social construct?
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    Well there are breeds of dogs, horses... why not men? Within mankind, there are all sorts... after WW2 people brought in the politically correct officialese and so you cannot speak it out, but then why do Asians have slanted eyes and black straight hair, I ask you. Apparently though physical differences account for only a negligible part of DNA, but that negligible part is also what differentiates us from apes, so I don't know how much weight that argument carries.

    Phrenology used to be all the rage and is all but abolished now. Times have changed...

    I guess racism is a social construct, but I'm no expert obviously, shit is complicated as you can see here:
