When did I say Irish, English and Jewish are races?

And my point is that there is evidence that there is enough genetic difference to constitute a race.

No. They're skin colors, nothing more. Is blond a race?

No, blond is not a race, IMO at least.

If black were only skin color, then how come these people could be considered (and saw themselves as) black?
