Race

Steve Sailor’s made a couple of interesting posts regarding biological race. One of them involves the politically motivated ‘race does not exist’ myth and the other one is about dingos and dogs – a good analogy for human races yet to taxonomise canine diversity is not taboo.

The only way in which ‘race does not exist’ is in the sense that biological taxonomy only labels biodiversity, the races of man are clearly equivalent to the subspecies of wild animals and the landraces of domestic ones. The label of ‘species’ is arbitrary with no fixed criteria agreed upon, but no one tries to insult my intelligence with arguments that species do not really exist.
