Re: Racism and anthropology
Seems to me the idea of race is pretty simple: it's the collection of traits that emerge in an isolated part of the species gene pool over years of inbreeding.

Things often seem simple when you are clueless about the issues. That way you ignore any possible complexity and just spout off simple crap. If you and ICANT would stick to being wrong about the Bible...


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man. We've got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. Neil Young, Rockin' in the Free World.

Re: Racism and anthropology
You responded with a biological idea which has very little to do with the idea of race in social contexts - such as dealing with racism.

There is that as the main point. There is also the point that her biological musings are equally silly and simplistic. Human beings are a single species, and in fact, a single sub-species under any possible definition. Faith is just laying her speciation does not involve mutations crap in a thread where it does not belong.

There are at least five or six open and abandoned threads where that shite can be posted. Please not here.
