    Ok...so my little Kermit reference didn't deflect the anger...

    GreenDot9 is really Tank Commander? Shows how much attention I pay...But it sort of makes sense...what would a tank look like from an airplane above? A green dot!

    By the way, not only has any biological utility in some notion of human races been debunked, but as it turns out as a specie the human gene pool is remarkably pure. Part of this is due to our relatively recent emergence from (some believe) a single source.

    For example, chimpanzees (who genetically speaking are very near neighbors) exhibit 5-10 times the genetic diversity found in humans.

    justme,

    nope, didn't say that. Social constructs are very real, but many deconstruct quickly under scientific scrutiny. Population genetics crushed racial categories in the 1960s, and new genetic data on geographic patterning and variability continue to invalidate convenient but arbitrary social boundaries. But the categories live on ... regrettably.

    Are you arguing that social constructs aren't real?

    ps. there is no scientific basis for traditional racial categories; they're Platonic stereotypes steeped in geopolitical BS.

    wrong answer

    Could the answer be:

    As a recent visitor with a lot of attacking opinions, he has not been overly "respectful" of members or board. 'Guests' usually don't walk into somewhere and just start foisting their opinions upon a room or group.

    If he had waited for people to get to know him a little before creating his 'sarcastic', 'hard-core' viewpoint, the entrance would not have recieve such a backlash?

    I have been insulted a number of times by posters on this board, for simply voicing my opinions.

    Why is their obnoxious behavior tolerated?

    Why are you exercising a "Double Standard" by singling out my posts? Are you racially biased (because I am a minority?)

    Or does the TRUTH offend you?
