There's an interestong thread in the women's section about black women dating white men, and reading it as a European, I am finding the use of the term "race" confusing. I know there are some smart biologists and maybe even anthropologists on the site, so this isn't a political correctness question, it is scientific correctness question. As someone who is amateurishly interested in genetics, my view is that it is a fairly meaningless term and certainly incorrectly applied. I have a problem with its blanket use not only because the genetic differences are miniscule when compared to the similarities, but also because you would still call someone like CBabe from the black race when that is the minority of her genetic inheritance. This suggests that in some countries it has become a social tool of disintegration and is therefore racist.
