Racist rhetoric postings

nothing more than a vile, uneducated racist.

The science of race


Racism has no basis in biology, that is, human "race" is a social construct. Yes, there biologists use race, but in a biological way to distinguish isolated populations from one another. It never is used to indicate some sort of superiority between the races, unless there's some evolutionary advantage.

So let's look at the biology of human "race."

First of all, the current hypothesis, supported by a growing body of evidence, is that humans arose in Africa between 200 and 60 thousand years ago. Called the "recent African origin of modern humans," it states that all humans in existence today have their origins in East Africa. Let that sink into the racists, but I know most of them deny evolution.

The visual differences between humans result from phenotypes being expressed from around 20-25 thousand protein encoding genes, consisting of over 3 billion DNA base pairs. Across all humans, there's less than 0.1% genetic variability, though, to be fair, we share 50% of our genes with bananas, so 0.1% variability is fairly high.

From these 20-25 thousand proteins, there is a range of expressed phenotypes (that is, what you can observe visually or in other ways) that vary rather dramatically in some cases.

There is a gradual variation of any phenotype over distance (and time). Traditionally, people have used skin tone to distinguish race, but there is no line drawn on some geographic boundary that separates one skin color to another. And, with so many invasions and a migrations, there sometimes isn't any correlation between skin color and a particular location. There are blonde haired blue eyed Arabs, and their are olive skinned, brown-eyed Europeans.

Furthermore, and most importantly, physical traits expressed by genes have never been correlated to other traits. There is no correlation between skin color and intelligence. Hair color and athleticism. Nothing like that.

Yes, there are many phenotypes that may distinguish one subpopulation from another, but there is no correlation between those phenotypes and other traits like violent crime or intellect. Within one skin color phenotype there are ranges of the of other phenotypes expressed by all the other 24,999 genes.

A biologist from another alien civilization would look at humans and classify them in one species (which we are), and determine that the phenotype differences is nothing more than natural variation in a species.

We could probably find enough genes to distinguish a Scandinavian from an Italian or a Sub-Saharan African, but that's just physical appearance, not anything substantial. We all have the same genes for blood, neurons, eyesight, and thousands of other traits.

Racism is simply not based on science, though many have tried. And as we migrate and intermingle, even the physical appearances will slowly disappear, maybe over a few dozen generations.





racism just plain sucks if this is not a racist post by John Rose what do you call it.?
Johns post on Jews-Germany, German people, Adolf Hitler, have all been given a bad rap by Liberal newspapers, Television, Hollywood, etc., all of whom are owned and controlled by Jews with their lies and propaganda. The gullible public has fallen hard for all their scams against everyone not Jewish. Jews start wars between countries, races, religions, people, and reap the spoils they created. Hitler didn't hate Jews, he hated Communism which Jews gave the world. Hitler saved Europe from Communism when he invaded Russia.

when I see racist rhetoric I will call it out john Rose.
