whoa for the biggest 1st post bump ever I've been involved in a few discussions over racism this week, so it's all new and fresh to me; well, I decided to post my thoughts here, for historical reference. This thread was looking for "scientifical" definition of human races that could be used in questions like which race is smarter, which is stronger, etc. However, the thread went into totally irrelevant direction, IMHO. Why does it matter who exactly are "black", for example, for the purposes of this thread? Why can't someone just begin with <definition>race X012 are people with skin color darker than 0.5 of whitest human skin</definition>, than make a <statement>adult people of X012 race are able to lift 20kg more than rest of people on average</statement>, and then commit purely statistical survey to confirm or disprove the statement? This looks like a perfect possibility to me.
