Is that so? Do you have a good source for that? Because wikipedia says "In physical anthropology the term is one of the three general racial classifications of humans Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid. Under this classification scheme, humans are divisible into broad sub-groups based on phenotypic characteristics such as cranial and skeletal morphology."

The homo sapiens wiki article only lists 2 sub species, the Homo sapiens idaltu which went extinct, and the homo sapiens sapiens. Sure there are pages on other classifications, but those are anthropology pages, which I don't regard as scientific evidence.
Sure things like caucasian are still used in forensics because you can recognize someone's origin by their skull etc. But as time goes one and globalization keeps going even those features are going to blend out.
In the end things like taxonomical subspecies are abitrary lines and apperently scientists don't think there are enough reasons to draw said line.

No, I'm well aware we all are the same species, but saying that the we are completely the same it's bullshit, which was my point. You can call it race, you can call it whatever you want, but we aren't just "different tribes", there are other differences. That was my whole point all along.
#104 - nustix (07/20/2016) [-]
Well different tribes makes for a closed genepool, which is similar to other animals where you have "reproduction groups". If these groups don't have exchange of genes with other groups they will slowly become different species.
If you want to call it race, sure go ahead. But the differences on a genetic scale are really minor.

Ever since i found out all he has is a BS in Mechanical Engineering, I haven't paid much attention to Bill Nye.
#77 - arandomanon (07/20/2016) [-]
While I know where he's going (and he's right, there are no different species), he's wrong saying that. Race =/= species and there are different races of people, just like there are different races of dogs, while all them are humans or dogs. And we all acknowledge that different races of dogs have different features. Just like humans.
I thought my university was pretty liberal but god damn it, I've never heard one of my lecturers denying the existance of different races.
#58 - anon (07/20/2016) [-]
Is that a difference though? There are scientific opinions that matter, and then there are ignorant, uneducated opinions that maybe don't matter per se, but if they spread to masses, behaviours influenced by these opinions start to really make the difference, and rarely a good one.
Look at anti-vaxxers. You can say the empty phrase that their opinion doesn't matter. Maybe yes, maybe no. But the consequences of this opinion are sometimes even dire, particularly for children. And this, on the other hand, matters.
#60 - arandomanon (07/20/2016) [-]
They both are ignorant. And of course it matters, if people start to believe that shit, they will get furious whenever doctors ask for their race, for medical reasons. And the more people rages, the more oportunist politicians will show up to "fix the systematic racism" and they will make it a problem. Of course it matters.
