Race is a taxonomical matter, not scientific focused.

The unique thing we know about races is that Amerindians had a higher development rate compared to europeans. They also have more neanderthal genes compared to europeans. America also belongs to Amerindians the same as europe belongs to europeans.

If it isn't biological then how come we look different?

>> No.9259613

From the race realist:
>The "reality of race" therefore depends more on the definition of reality than on the definition of race. If we choose to accept the system of racial taxonomy that physical anthropologists have traditionally established—major races: black, white, etc.—then one can classify human skeletons within it just as well as one can living humans.

The categories can be defined any way you want to. If you want to use your eyes to make categories, then we can classify according to those categories. But we can classify according to basically anything.

Greater than 99% of Native Americans have type O blood. Asains are almost exclusively Rh+. Jewish people are more likely to get certain diseases due to their genetics.

It's a lot like dogs, where they can all interbreed and are all the same species, but different breeds (i.e. races).

>> No.9259627


Sort of. There's no statistical model, however, that can separate people into races, because while some populations have unique traits, the overall genetic differentiation is too low for any taxonomical separation, based on how we define breeds or subspecies. If you tried to parameterize it to a handful of traits, you'd end up with hundreds of different races, many living in the same countries/communities, and any distinction would lose meaning- it wouldn't correlate at all with our cultural understanding of race by skin color.

Similarly, even if you widen it to a group of traits as wide as the trait differentiation between even the two most differentiated populations on earth, you'd end up with the exact same problem- humans are too genetically close, regardless of population, for any statistical model to accurately place, and thus we call race a social construct, which it is. Those meme charts you see going around about genetics showing different races cherrypick a few hundred genetic loci that differ between population, but that kind of thing in normal science doesn't fly- the loci picked are arbitrated, rather than a wholescape genomic comparison, and thus even if you went by that standard it's human arbitration (socially constructed) which defines it.

So, to answer OP, it is cultural.

So you admit, the races are biological.

The different races are different ancestry groups. Basically, different families - just large families.

There's tons of differences between the races - not just superficial, but also in terms of which diseases we contract too. Asian Flush is unique to East Asians, because it is a mutation that originated in that part of the world, and spread among East Asian people (picture related - prevalence of Asian Flush among different populations).

It absolutely stands to reason that different racial groups, on average, have slightly different qualities, based on our different genetics. It may well be true that Asians have biological differences that make them slightly better - on average - at mathematics and other such things.

Europeans settle on europe: 40000BC
Amerindians reached Canada: 25000BC; then after the deglaciation (10000 years later) populated the rest of the continent in 15000BC
European crops date from 10000BC.
Amerindian crops date from 6000BC.
Europeans getting the bronze from other culture in 3200BC.
Amerindians reached the bronze age in 500BC approximately.
Also as a great factor:Horse domesticated in 3000BC approximately.

Knowing that the rests of all amerindian populations of 14000BC to 10000BC were pretty much paleolithical-tier and all lived as nomads, practiced some artistic manifestations as european paleo-populations. It's safe to assume they started again in the paleolithic and had to morph the environment of woods, jungles and coasts to their convenience, the same the europeans did with their environment for thousands of years before the Neolithic.

Then let's compare:
Europeans lurking around as nomads: 30000 years.
Amerindians lurking around as nomads: 9000 years.
Europeans reaching the bronze age from other cultures after the Neolithic stage: 6800 years.
Amerindians reaching the bronze age by themselves without the influence of a culture thousands of years ahead of development: 5500 years.
Let's check also how many years have humans modifyed the horse population and environment: 37000 years.
Let's check how many years have amerindians affected the camelids of South-America, when the spaniards came: 16500 years. They had less than half the time, yet they already domesticated diverse species for food and whool. Llamas can carry up to 50 Kg.

And I didn't mention the disadvantages such as continental isolation (north-south and east-west), Niño fenomena that destroys coastal villages, less cultures to trade with, and no naval technology, iron, horses, wheel, and writting from north-african nor anatolian cultures.

So, it's safe to affirm it. Incas were superior to europeans.

It's cultural in the sense that it's an arbitrary categorization by lay people's whims.

This is what "race realists" don't understand. Genetic differences do exist in people, but that has nothing to do with race. Race is "I FEEL you belong to this group." Even if genetics says two people are highly similar, racists will place them in two different groups because they feel the skin color is different enough. Two people may be highly dissimilar genetically and race realists will put them in the same group because again "I feel they belong together".

Race is an unscientific concept. If you want to know how people differ, study genetics, but racists won't because that doesn't confirm their feelings.

Wow. How is it possible for leftists to be this stupid?

It is impossible to have a sensible discussion about it, because leftists will say "NO THERE ARE NO DIFFERENCES - AFRICANS AND EUROPEANS ARE *EXACTLY THE SAME*!!!"

Leftists would say "but racial categories have fuzzy edges", and they're right about that to an extent. The common "racial groups" aren't homogenous - Zulu people in South Africa are genetically pretty different to Somali people in East Africa. But that doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how you subdivide humans, the point is that there are different groups which genetically differ.

But then leftists will say "MUH SOCIAL CAUSES ARE THE REASON THERE'S DIFFERENCES", hahaha. They're so stupid.

The analogy shows how ridiculous it is to assert that there aren't genetic differences between different groups of humans which have unique ancestry.

>are pretty different
You mean in appearance. And you can see how race depends on the belief that aspect changes is proportional to genetic changes. Also that there are negros in melanesia, amerindians are related to central asians and siberians, europeans to west asians, south europeans have more of a middle-eastern gene pool. North-africans even though they are caucasian, have a pretty different history compared to south-europeans.

And all these examples are based on genetic ancestry, meanwhile the race argument keeps pushing for appearance distinction.

Alright here's true facts:

Scientists admit that there are genetically distinct groups of people. They will call them "ethnicities" or "populations" ("populations" is probably the most popular term these days).

The only reason they criticise "racial" categories is because they think they're fuzzy. E.g. do Polynesian people belong to the same race as East Asians (Chinese, Japanese, etc.), or are they a separate race? What about Thais, Cambodians - are they separate to Chinese/Japanese/Korean?

And Spaniards have some Arab admixture from colonisation - so are they still "European"/white? And what about Central Asians like Kazakhs, who are basically a mix of Turkic and Mongol - what race do they belong to?

And also they will point to the fact that those who are normally put together in a racial category have a lot of variation among them. E.g. Somalis in East Africa are pretty different to Bantu people in Nigeria. They look different. They're genetically distinct.

But none of this matters. What matters is that different ethnicities, however you want to group them, are genetically distinct. And it's perfect possible that we have slightly different qualities, based on our different genetics. This doesn't mean our qualities are set in stone - it doesn't mean blacks are ALWAYS going to commit more crime. It just means there could well be genetic factors at play. We admit that with health conditions, so why not with crime? When we're happy to recognise scientific studies that associate some genes with criminal behaviour, as long as race isn't involved in the study?

Anyway, I would argue that the broad races we tend to use (European, African, South Asian, East Asian, Amerindian/Native American, Australian Aborigine) are actually pretty useful. Most groups of Africans, even if distinct, are more similar to each other than they are to groups of Europeans.

Anyway it doesn't matter - political discussions are not meant for this board, and they're irrelevant to this discussion. The question is whether the races differ - that's a scientific question, it's a question of fact. It's nothing to do with politics.

And the answer is: yes, the races biologically differ.

That's what most whites and blacks in America want anyway - just separate, so each race can live how they want to live. Blacks have high crime rates all over the world - look at Haiti where crime is very high. Blacks have been in control of that country for over 200 years since the Haitian Revolution, so their behaviour isn't a result of being "oppressed" - it's just how they live.

No, it's not. Your racism aside, you're talking about all Amerindians then singling out Incas in your conclusion.

The Inca empire was brought down by Francisco Pizarro and a force of 168 men and a militia of locals who sought to end the control the Incas held over their land. How superior...

And the Mayans? Their civilization was already collapsing when the Spanish arrived because they had utterly destroyed their environment via deforestation. It took 20 trees just to make 1 square meter of lime plaster for their ziggurats. How superior...

Isolation is also not necessarily always a disadvantage. Peoples of Europe have had to fight each other for resources, land, women, etc and still progress through all of it.

You seem angry and upset. Your racism shouldn't be this board's problem.

>dog breeds are equuvalent to human races
Yes we are, except we weren't deliberately bred by another species (as is the case with dogs) - BUT there are genetically distinct human populations with distinct features (e.g. Han Chinese, English, Zulu, etc.), just like dog breeds.

>are homo sapiens as genetically flexible as canis lupus familiaris
Probably yes. If we wanted to breed humans for their qualities like we have dogs, then I'm sure we could create the same level of genetic variation if we really wanted.

>and is artificial selection based on aesthetic appeal really equivalent to steady adaptation to one's environment
Okay well then we can use lots of other examples can't we? Tigers. Bengal tigers, Siberian tigers, Caspian tigers (now extinct, but whatever). Different populations separated by distance, with different physical traits. But they can interbreed.

Different human races are the same thing.
