I'm an Indivualist. I don't look at things like most people look at. I'm a person of a different point of view. You could say I threw the argument together, but thats just me.
Look at in terms of fish. is a catfish the same as a sword fish? No. They are both fish, yes but they are not the same "race" of fish. Is a Black person the same as a White person? No. They are both humans but they are not the same race.
Nope, I still don't see Race as a factor for all Sub-Races of Human Beings. The Human Race is a race of people, all common because of our defining cultures, our intelligence, and our evolution. The loose term of Race has been handed down, and I don't see it that way, so we're just going to have to compromise the situation at hand.
The fact of the matter is this. I tell you not to say that race doesn't exist because it's a fact. It would be like saying John Cena doesn't exist. Race is there, and it's not waving it's hand in front of it's face saying "You can't see me".
My opinion that interracial dating and breeding is destroying racial identity is just that, an opinion. I've never claimed it as fact. Saying race doesn't exist isn't giving us your opinion, it's feigning ignorance when you know very well that race does exist.
What ignorance? In that I think differently? In that I don't follow the popular definition of what you call "Race" in its loose terms? As I've said before, its a corrupted term, Race, as well as Racism, have been so used in various situations and in conspicuous manners, those terms don't mean anything anymore.
We're just going to have to agree to disagree. I have a different way of thinking, and you can call me ignorant, or anything else, but thats the way I conclude my arguments. Call me what you will.
