Odds and Ends
Be careful what you say

Species evolve from races, there can't be one without the other. Thus, races are older than species.
And denying the existence of race is essentially denying evolution and science.
What the "scientists" "failed" in explaining was that the race is not a discrete phenomenon, but a fuzzy phenomenon instead. Each individual is a composite of "races" and each race is a composite of older races (sort of like a rotation of factors in the factor analysis). But the races and racial components are quite persistent over time. And mixing of races does have consequences, not always pleasant (neanderthals are one such an example). Being mathematically fuzzy is not equivalent to nonexistence. Thus, the denial of races is purely a social construct and has no biological basis.
