If the definition you use is "they believe races do exist" then yes,
everyone is. I just got into a very interesting conversation with a very
nice black father down the block - who was explaining to me why he can take
the sun, being so evolved in a niche environment (Africa, his ancestors) for
the heat. Heh - that didn't explain why I, being from nomadic stock and
with ancestors that had to adapt to VARIOUS environments (not just a niche
environment) can also take the heat - and trust me, this is TROPICAL down
here, despite being a free degrees north of actual tropical zone. The
foliage here IS tropical. I also don't hardly have to squint from the sun.
:) I mean, the guy just brought the subject up - and bingo - he was talking
about "his race." But I'd never call this person a racist. He's not. He's
a very nice person - and a pretty strict father. he's not a racist because
he sees "races" and notes the differences in them. He never once said that
anyone was superior or inferior. Generally yeah , blacks DO have better
adaption to this climate here. They really do.

Hmm, interesting. I was always good at math too - very good, without trying
hard, especially geometry. I figured I was good at it cuz I simply LIKED
it. I do know that many people are TERRIBLE at it. Right, I never saw that

But saying a group that is testably better at math is better at math is not
racist, nor is saying that blacks are better adapted for this climate
racist. I'm not using a PC definition of race. Better at SOMETHING,
doesn't mean superior or inferior as PEOPLE. Asking WHY they are better is
not a racist question. It's simply a question about why they ARE, testably,
better. Well, why are they? Maybe they study more? I don't actually know
why. I can't tell you today what the ethnic composition of my math classes
were - I just didn't tend to notice stuff like that, back then - therefore,
I can't remember. Blacks themselves are shocked thru the roof when they
hear another black person singing completely off key, tone deaf. They are
shocked. Among themselves, they know what everyone else knows - MOST blacks
have pretty good musical ears. That's not racist, Bob. It's beautiful.
Maybe it's me - but I have always tended to notice the "WOW, that's AMAZING"
factor when differences like this were pointed out. I know this: in the
dead of night when everything is very hush and quiet, I can make a noise and
an Asian across the street doesn't hear it. Most whites do not hear it.
Some do. I can drop a piece of paper and a black person TURNS AROUND AND
LOOKS. I find that amazing. Every single time, too. Yeah, I used to try
out dumb stuff like that years ago. They have VERY good ears. You know
what? I can hear it TOO. I have heightened sense of hearing, taste and
smell - especially smell. A fireman wanted to hand me a medal due to that,
once. But there was no such medal. I also see things in terms of SHAPES
and have very high spacial intelligence. Who is to say that doesn't have
something to do with the way my recent and ancient ancestors evolved? No
one ever studied this stuff - and imo, it's VERY interesting.
I see WOW amazing, interesting - tell me more. Meanwhile the pc tyrants are
branding it all racism and stifling knowledge. That's the way I see it all
happening. It sucks. How come I'm so damned fair when not tan, like a
Scandinavian person - but I don't burn and get SO tan that I get like a dark
person from India (same tone of tan)? How come? How come people originally
a lot darker than me burn from the sun? How come? I really would like to
know because I'm CURIOUS - tho I will admit that such curiosities are purely
dilettante, they are passing. How the SG Atlantis team is gonna manage to
get around the mess they just created is NOT a passing curiosity. So
that's how that goes.
