If you want to prove me wrong and say skin color isn't directly influenced by cultural heritage, find me a study where the sample is larger than 1,000 that shows that, on average, people of 100% German descent are born with a Black skin tone just as much as they are born with a White skin tone.
I was talking about Culture, in which you have stated yourself earlier in the topic, the Interracial Dating, or Multiculturalization of People of different "Races" is destroying our genetic identity. Heritage is one thing, but Culture is another thing. Heritage is more or less what you are, and Culture is where you orginated. They are nothing more than a fascade to the individual. I'm not going to prove you wrong by saying Skin Color doesn't directly influence Heritage, because you're right. Did I ever say it didn't? No.
There is very much a such thing as a "Race of People" as you put it. Please don't try and tell me, or anyone else in this thread, that race doesn't exist. I think that may be the only thing that we will all agree on.
No, there isn't. Thats been the corrupted generalization of the whole Human Race for centuries. There are Sub-Races of people, but not a whole different race entirely based on something we cannot control. Race exists, of course, but the overall general usage of the term has been loosely corrupted by the mandate of mass society.
This is classic. You inadvertantly have proven that you buy into stereotyping just as much as the next person. You call skin color a "shell that masks your true self" which means that, to you, a person's skin color tells you one thing about them but their personality can directly contradict that. Tell me then, how is that not the same as what you're trying to denounce?
Stereotyping? Don't you know everyone stereotypes? Of course, a person's skin color does not tell you one's inner being. It doesn't, it only exposes the exterior of the person. Just because one is of one race, doesn't mean all people are of that same influence. Once you get to the know the person, you are indefinite to know them by individual standards, not ethnic standards, which is basically what many generalize the first they see someone. You can live you life the way you want to, and I can live mine the way I want to. You tell me to not state to everyone that Race doesn't exist? Why don't you not tell everyone Interracial Dating is destroying our genetic identity? It is an opinion, and I'm pretty sure Opinions are welcome.
Its a good thing we can debate our points without insults. Its commonplace in the Rant Section, however.
