Is the Black superior to the White race? Or are they rather equal . By Black Race , I mean Africans and by White Race I mean Europeans. In my humble opinion, no race or people are above the other. We are all equal.

There is no 'White Race', nor 'Black Race'. Skin colouration is the least informative feature of one's origin. 'Superiority' is subjective as well and differs from person to person, one may consider physical superiority over intellectual superiority as ultimately superior. Nature has proven both to be effective. With such a subjective bar to measure, your question becomes meaningless.

The concept of 'Race' is outdated and has been so for a significant amount of time.

All human beings are equal, the concept of one "race" superior to another is racism..the modern idea of "race" developed
in the 1400s when Europeans circumvented the globe and found people who looked different from them, they then classified
themselves as "white" and the rest of the world as "non-white" ("black", "brown", "red" and "yellow" people of the planet)..

As far as skin color, the people classified as "black" contain the densest concentration of melanin which is responsible for
skin coloration...the people classified as "white" contain the least amount of melanin , a recent study at Penn State said that
1 gene is responsible for "white" skin color and says that the absence of melanin suggests that "white" skin is a mutation..
and that this particular gene (I forgot the number assigned to it) and that "white" skin suddenly appeared only 7,000 years ago in human beings...

Because the people classified as "black" are strikingly visible, a complex developed toward them from melanin-challenged people...This deep seated fear complex based on color deficiency and small global numerical numbers..resulted in racism,
on a global scale...

Cultures are not all the same though.



Same intellectual with a younger face.

Skin pigmentation means nothing save for what we have ascribed to it.

A group of all around superior people doesn't exist. There are some differences though, which I find interesting but I wouldn't say that any one group is inherently superior. Most of the differences I notice are cultural.

That depends on the sport, Africans dominate track and field whereas Asians and Europeans are better at technical sports ie gymnastics.

In reverse, we are not all equal -- that is plain for even two year olds to see. But our diversity is what makes our species interesting.

Agree. No race is above another. However, there are some amazing individuals of each race.

There is no inherent superiority.

We need to get away from group indicators and back to evaluating the individual.

and on and on. The most recent addition is the Higgs Boson.

I happen to think all people are equal, but if you are implying that blacks are superior because they can run really fast, well, I will just let everyone contrast our posts and think what they will of you and your insights.
