What is a race? An ethnos. A distinct ethnic group. What is an ethnic group? A tribe. A family of families. Think about it. Think about how long most Americans' families have lived in this country. Think about how much they've mixed with everyone else's over the generations. Why can't people just realize and admit to themselves how closely related most other Americans are to them? There are no "European-Americans" or "African-Americans" or "Asian-Americans" that aren't recent immigrants or possibly their children. There are Americans who are more or less fairly close kin to each other. We might still be subdivided by color to an extent due to the relatively recent origins and solidification of our people, but that doesn't mean a whole lot on the genetic level.
