Unfortunately even though race is purely sociological, everyone sees race including myself.

American culture is based on it.

Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

Race is just a political conception to divide people, degrade them, give you a justification to exploit, hate, rob and murder.

Why do people keep seeing race as white, black, asian etc?
Dont you people know that race has nothing to do with skin color???
For example:original white people from England their race are Anglo-Saxon, and for white people who are from Sweeden, their race is the Viking.
America has been brain washing you, into believing that whites are one race, blacks another and asians other and the list goes on.
Read and study facts, instead of just eating anything that this racist society feeds you.
And to finish i would like to say that there there is no such thing as race. Race is a racist division that evil white people invented,taken out of the lie evolutionary prejudice connotation. In reality there is only the Human race.
We all are people from different tribes and different national groups.

Color of skin doesnt imply race. Its just an adaption to the environment.
Lots of sun+black skin=less skin cancer,
lots of sun+white skin=lots of skin cancer=evolutional disadvantage in hot regions
99% of all the physical traits people developed are because of adaption to the environment.
Longer noses warm up the inhaled air reducing the risk of infections/cold/flu in cold regions.
Curly hair comes from a certain oil that the hair of african people produces, so the hair wont be dried out and destroyed by the sun.
It all makes sense looking at it from that angle and makes racists look ridiculous.
And still underneath the skin ALL humans have 99.9999999% the same DNA Code.
"Racial differences" are more cultural ones and are man made.
