Do we know what racism means?

We refer to “racism” and we think we know what that means. I looked up the origin of “race” and it is based upon flawed “science” of the time. There is not any specific marker for “race” in the human body. An autopsy will not reveal the “race” of the person.

Even as a child I questioned the division of races – I saw that “interracial” relations can produce offspring, therefore I concluded that dividing the “races” did not preclude productive mating and so we could not be that “different.”

As a consequence of my research, I will only identify myself as being of the “human race” on any forms that ask for my race. I invite you to do the same – and you will discover a whole new world opens up to you.
