I don't think there is a "pure" race. I do believe there are some cultures that are superior to other cultures.........for a time.

DiscoDaemon !!! ... Such A Facinating Subject !

Why yes indeed Disco ... It appears that there is only one pure 100% white basic carbon unit which remains upon the globe!

Of course that would be the Great German Aryan Race ... Blond Hair, Blue Eyes, high intellect, the total package . The real Europeans.

Spending time around the decendants of these excellent folks in some parts of todays Germany is truly a pleasure .

Well there you have it Disco, you may start another one of your interesting threads on another subject because ... the "Case Is Closed" on this one !

I couldn't resist bragging on some of my other European family members !

"white" is a race invented by the US census.

Now, the indigenous people of europe are the Basque (the original western europeans: the daddys of the spanish, french, English, portuguese, and Irish) and the sami (scandinavians).
As of 2011, the Basque country is the purest western european population, and one of the most prosperous regions of the european union.

Well, we really cannot refer to the original Hawaiians as a "race," as they came from triracial origins (African, Asian, Caucasian). Those of purely Native Hawaiian ethnicity number only about 8000. By 2050 or so there may not be any left, according to some estimates.

In any event, you must be speaking of the residents of Ni'ihau, who live in what could be considered to be a protected environment. There are few pure Hawaiians on other islands, but about 20% of the state of Hawaii's population is anywhere from 1 to 100% Native Hawaiian.

That's not really what I meant.

Each of your grandparents... 4 grandparents, 8, 16, 32 grandparents, etc... all 32 of them have millions of their own ancestors, in their own individual lines. Those are all your ancestors too.

To say, all of your ancestors were white, is incredible.

It could never be proved.

I mean... what do you consider to be white? And if an African man happened to be in your human ancestry somewhere... are you less than pure white? Would that lessen the value of a white person?

Myth: The Basque are R1b Haplogroup, which is the most common haplogroup in Western Europe. While not indigenous, they arrived before the migration of Indo-Europeans, but they also have a large % of R1b.
