Race was used to propogate the myth that we have come from monkey's. There is only one race, the human race. We are all of one blood. The greatest difference between any people groups in the whole world is .2%, not quite enough to bridge the 1% gap between the monkey and ourselves. I love monkeys, and I think we have a responsiblity to take care of all animals, but we did not come from them. People are separated by cultural differences, we are not different faces, help stop the myth!

Because words never, ever are adapted to have different meanings than they had originally. Every word ever invented is still used exactly the same way now as it first was. That's language. Regardless of what race originally was used for, it's adapted into a term referring to people of different ethnic backgrounds. That's what the word means *now*. It's not an incorrect term because the original connotations don't apply anymore.

Well there are other terms that have been outmoded, I hope this one does too. It does nothing but create division and seperation. It creates hatred that is bred out of ignorance. Even evolution propogates the myth that certain people groups are less advanced than other people groups. For the people of the world to live in peace the lies must be eradicated and the Truth must reign.
