The Human Race
« on: August 26, 2009, 05:57:29 AM »
In order to understand the DNA and Genetics we need to know some basics about the human race
there are only three races in the world
1. Asian or mongoloid
2.Black
3. White
Some people confuse thiswith ethnicity,hispanic or arabic

Race is an ambiguous concept. The reality is that whatever characteristics you choose to use to differentiate individuals within a species (e.g. skin color, hair color, height, etc.) there is a fairly continuous spectrum of individuals.

Imagine all the people in the world lined up according to the darkness of their skin. There's no obvious point where one person is "black" and the person right next to them is not.

Same thing with defining "tall", if 6'6" is tall is 6'5.999"? Then what about 5'5.998"? Whatever number you choose to call "tall" is arbitrary.

most Filipinos call all whites as members of the "caucasian race" but dark skinned Indians are also caucasians and White people of Eastern Europe are neither caucasians, they are Slavs or Slavik.

malawak geographic origin ng caucasians
Russians don't want to be classified as caucasians Slavik sila, their features are very different from western europeans,sila rin kasi di nila ma distinguish ang mga class ng Asians sa Far East
at the same time not all moslems are Arabs, Turks are moslems but they are not Arabs
