The question is....what difference does having different skin color, hair texture, eye shape, hair color or eye color REALLY make?

That .01% difference is big enough to have such an effect that an africans skull is shaped significantly differently than an asians skull.

In the world of Genes. .1% genetic difference is ENORMOUS.

This is what you're failing to understand sweetie.
Yes, .01 is enormous, that's why different "races" are able to produce viable mixed offspring right?

haha no, what I said is true, no matter what color that baby was.

These people need to feel as though they are special. Therefore, the .01 difference that codes for skin color, hair texture and eye color makes a world of a difference to them. Very sad.

I've already explaind to you that .1% difference is enough to make a significant impact on our biology though.

In the world of Genetics .1% genetic variation is astronomically huge.

That's why different races look the way they do. That's why different races have different skull shapes for example. That's why...well I won't go there. You'll likely have a nervous break down if I present you with that data...

Also: I never said the offspring are or are not viable. That's another subject of discussion. Are we changing the discussion?

Not one single person could answer the question...what difference does it REALLY make? They have absolutely no answer to that question that isn't steeped in arbitrary racial superiority.

I don't view the different skin colors, various facial features and hair textures as being significant differences.

Significant genetic differences = inability to mate and produce viable offspring.

Depends. The different races of the world evolved differently from one another to better adabt to their environments.

Some scientist say that if humans had remained isolated for another 10,000 years then we would have evolved to the point that the different races would be incapable of interbreeding.

It's unfortunate, their existence is based off of their skin color and facial features.
