    All humans are incredibly alike. only 0.2% genetic differences. (in the average zebra herd there is @ a 25% difference).

    "Did you know all human beings are 99.8% the same?
    Human genetics is an area of science and medicine that describes how traits are inherited (passed down from one family member to another). The human genome is the complete set of coded instructions that are needed to make a person. These instructions are encoded in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Our DNA is coiled into structures called chromosomes. Sections of DNA along each chromosome are referred to as genes. Each gene codes for one specific instruction to help our bodies to grow and develop."

    celebrate our common humanity & viva le difference!

    what a stupid argument. so what if most of us have the same number of fingers and toes? how does that change the obvious and measurable differences that exist between races?

    Add chimpanzees, and it goes to 98 percent.

    What that demonstrates is that very tiny genetic differences make a WORLD of difference in terms of behavior, intelligence, appearance.

    In other words, race is real. Race matters. And races live best amongst themselves, not forcibly mixed in a government stew of hatred and dischord.

    ""In other words, race is real.""

    no it means that human beings are different. one person may like baseball another,loathe it but like opera. and they may be brothers.

    it has nothing to do with geography. we are all human and have way more in common with each other than any other species on the planet.

    All very well, but in reality, there are different ethnic and racial divisions of humans, and cultural differences that go along with them. Some of those differences clash with one another. Often, birds of a feather flock together, it's just a fact of life. It's perfectly natural for folk to feel more at home with their own kind.

    So if we're all so cozy genetically, then why do why kill each other?

    I'm not comfortable with all people. For instance, there are some on this site who seem to be mentally unbalanced (not you, btw). Some people are too loud, confrontational, overbearing, and downright mean. Others are needy, whiny, pathetic. There are just some people I really don't care to be around.
