    First Human on earth was Black, therefore y'all owe everything to Black people. And if that's not the case, then we all know the White race used Black people for quite some time, the effect of which is still apparent in African countries.

    No it's not discrimination because it is for diversity and creating a fair workplace. How is it a fair workplace if all people are white and none are Asian or Black or disabled?
    Explain this diversity nonsense you talk about. What is so good about it? What does it achieve? What is its major benefit to society and mankind, economically, scientifically and technologically? Explain why deserving, hardworking and qualified candidates should be racially-discriminated against in favour of less-deserving and in most cases utterly incompetent candidates. Do you think this offers or takes away benefit to society and world civilization?

    If diversity is so good why are almost all of the world's current conflicts rooted in some aspect of diversity - ethnic, religious, political, etc? Also, if diversity is so great why do you find it so difficult to accept a diversity of viewpoints?

    Broderss, it's clear to all you've been indoctrinated in left-wing nonsense from a very young age. I just wonder how long it'll take you see your utter hypcorisy and idiocy.

    It is unkown where humans have orignated, new archeological evidence shows that the oldest human fossils have been found in Asia.

    Society or the diverse group would benefit from the range of skills, talents, opinions and viewpoints. But the group must be tolerant and accepting of each other otherwise diversity won't work and it will spark conflict; the conflict you speak of.

    Define human beings. If you mean homo sapiens, how do you reconcile the fact that many modern-day humans, for example Europeans and East Asians, have significant genetic contribution from Neanderthals? For example, we can now pinpoint several genes relating to brain-development inherited from Neanderthals.

    Recently it was discovered that Melanesians descend in part from the Denisovans, a long exctinct non-human hominid species living in much of Asia. Genetic evidence would also suggest that Africans and other modern populations also descend from non-human hominids, each separated by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution and therefore genetically,anatomically and behaviorally palpably different from one another.

    I hate the fact that this guy's Nigerian.

    You do realize Black people have invented a lot of things too right? Do your research.

    But who gives a **** which race invented what?

    It's a HUMAN RACE so in the end the inventions benefit us all.

    /thread and your life.

    Oh I totally agree with your view about a diversity of skills, talents, opinions and viewpoints. I just don't see what "skin colour", as you put it, has to do with any of that.

    I wonder, do you think the historical success of European nation states based on diversity? Was the success of Japan based on diversity? South Korea? What about the current meteoric rise of China? All down to diversity I suppose! I suppose we can put down the fact that China is expected to overtake America as the world's biggest economy in the next decade down to their tiny mountain-dwelling community of Tibetans. Or maybe their tiny Muslim Uighur population. Or perhaps we have all those African "traders" (read: drugdealers) in Guangzhou to thank for that!

    But we need equality and diversity because that it what is right. How can we promote either if we don't let any ethnic minorities any chance in this world? If it's all unfair for them we will not have any equality.
    People in the UK are much richer than people in other parts of the world. Why don't you follow through with your dream of equality and donate all your money and belongings to some African toiletbowl country like Mali or Nigeria? Better yet why don't you go to one of those countries and see how far your talk of diversity gets you! Just don't expect to stay alive very long...

    Exactly. Why does the white man bow down to these low-IQ savages?

    You know the White man used to be respected throughout the world. Now he's the laughing stock of the world.

    I am amazed at how good the UK is compared to any other country in the world ( Including Western countries as well). We put some of the least funding into our academics but allmost 50% of refrences written in papers around the world are refrences to UK academics.

    It doesn't seem to make sense statistically. I think it is our good education system.

    ALSO: The OP seems to be a Troll. Nobody is really that racist/stupid/ignorant.

    So what you're saying is that Blacks and non-Blacks originate from the same group of people but non-Blacks evolved while Blacks stayed the same?

    Yes. Africa now has roads, cultivated plants, domesticated animals, written language, modern medicine, the wheel...

    Is that a joke? If it isn't that is both disgusting and ridiculous.

    Consider your child, If you say IQ is genetic, your child has a probability of being equally as 'savage' as another person from a different race. You insult in a hideous way your own child. Of course it isn't that simple, but it higlights what an awfull thing you just said.

    Well at least slavery got them to work for once.

    Not that we have machines let's just say a certain racial group on this planet is basically just antique farm equipment. But you know I'm a moderate and a great defender of multiculturalism and diversity. And a civil rights leader. So I could never say who this swarthy, violent low-IQ group is.

    The human race/Homo sapiens has 99.9% exact same dna.
    There is no such thing as the human race. Humans are a species.

    We homo sapiens are part of the hominidae family which includes gorillas, chimpanzees etc.... These animals that are in our family are a different race.
    No, they're not. They are a different species within the same family. There are different races of gorillas, for instance.

    So I restate my point. There is no such thing as race within the human race catagory. Race in the context you use it is just a social construction used to justify your prejudice.
    Again, there is no such thing as the human race. Get your facts right. There are significant, observable and verifiable genetic differences between humans of the same species. Therefore human races (plural) exist. What is a social construction is the distinction between black and white instead of blond and short or green-eyed and muscular.

    This is done through genetics not through dna(race).
    What exactly is the difference between genetics and DNA?

    Again this is due to a persons social surroundings/adaptaion to their surroundings. The reason why mainly black people get sickle cell disease and people from the mediterranean mainly get mediterranean disease and so on is because of where the disease started. For example sickle cell disease started in areas where there were huge problems with mosquitoes and malaria. Hence why black (africans) and to a lesser extent indians are more prone to the disease. This does not mean whites don't carry this disease or are immune to it. White people just don't get it on the same scale.
    Wrong. People of Jewish ancestry (however insignificant) have a higher propensity to have Krohn's disease for example, irrespective of where their ancestors have lived for the past centuries.

    What? That's just a random statement with nothing to back it.
    It is disputed but not random.

    Again you clearly understand nothing here. I have explained this already. The race is the sub catagory of the family.
    Sigh. The species is the subcategory of the family. The race is the subcategory of the species.

    So collie is a race of the candidae family.
    No. Collie. Family: Canidae. Species: Lupus. Subspecies: Familiaris. Race: Collie.

    A basset hound will be different the collie because it is another race within the candidae family. Just the same as a gorilla is different from a human. However For the last time. A basset hound and a collie are of the same family, the same species and the same subspecies. A gorilla and a human are not of the same species.
    Your whole anti-racialist argument is flawed because all the assumption it's based on are wrong.
