I can't imagine what would possibly make me think one race was inferior to another
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 10:57:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
no
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 10:57:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
If any such proof were found, the difference discovered would be minimal, and it would also not apply to every member of a particular race. Only those grasping at straws would try and use it as some kind ot 'DNA evidence'.

I do not think myself superior of people with Down syndrome.

In terms of DNA "evidence" I think its pretty clear that there are differences between races. 'Course you don't need molecular genetics to tell you that - just look around. But as far as 'superior' goes.... I don't think you'd be able to prove it, or even define it on the off chance that there was something there.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 12:05:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. 'superior' is down to opinion anyway.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 12:14:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. No one race is superior to another.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 11:01:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
By 'DNA Evidence' I was referring to the fact that if DNA evidence is used in a crime case, it's pretty much taken as unarguable.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 11:16:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Every race should be considered equal.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 11:19:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
did everyone miss a big 'If?'
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 11:20:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Even IF a certain race were shown to be inferior, I'd still believe that all should be considered equal.

lol thats better!!

I guess the concept of "inferior" may be pergerotive, but it seems to me that it is possible that a race might be inferior to another, without saying that equality under the law should be denied them.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 4/5/04 - 3:44:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course not. In the past there was "proof" that other races were inferior.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 8:44:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
check the racial makeup of schools that are judge to be marginal or below standards.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 8:48:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
Over the years, plently of 'evidence' has been presented, followed, refuted, presented again, refuted again, etc. If I wanted to prove that one race is inferior, it wouldn't take too much searching to find a study that supported my view. There is evidence to support anything one might want to think. We make our own decisions on how much credence to give to such studies.

So I'd have to say no.

Inferior how? In whose opinion? Isn't Superiority/Inferiority totally subjective?

No, I wouldn't endorse it, because it would be B.S.

16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 12:15:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I see that it is not a matter of whether it is true of not, just if it is "Polically correct."
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 12:24:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Dheart has the key statistics can be used to prove anything and any conclutions would be entirely subjective.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 5/3/04 - 11:32:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with dheart.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/4/04 - 12:15:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
anyway some races have been proven inferior. Australian aboriginees are clearly less successful at colonising the earth than Europeans for example.

It depends what definitions you're using.

andf i'm not so sure about objective superiority being bullpoo.

The opinion that Pete Sampras' tennis skills are superior to than mine would hardly start any mind boggling debate.

16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/4/04 - 12:18:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Or white Europeans are inferior becuase they couldn't learn how to live in balance with the earth and not f*ck it over.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/4/04 - 12:19:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
precisely.

Every race has it's strengths and weaknesses, just as every individual has strengths and weaknesses. I think we can discuss and compare differences without trying to simplify them, or using such subjective terms. To try to say that the total of one race's innate strengths and weaknesses make it better or worse than the total of another race's is pretty absurd. I think Hitler is a prime example of that dangerous BS.
