"nurture is alot, but nature is much more of it, thats what the studies say."

nice reference, "the studies". i should probably read those. i believe in free will as much as a i believe in anything so therefore i'm a firm believer in nurture, especially the ability of nurture to override nature.

they are more recently tribal than any other race, especially since they still are tribal.

Well, as much as everyone really cared about knowing that little tidbit, PolitikiL, you really could have just saved that for your diary.

A tribal setting is where we all originally came from.

"it's what they are genetically prone to, coming from africa in a tribal setting where survival is being dominant, it's just the way things turned out."

you are incredibly ignorant, do you really believe that just blacks came from a tribal culture?

Randomly mutilating people of my race WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED!

I desire to skin these savages alive, and toss them into sulfuric acid.

"What this boils down to is the nature vs. nurture argument, and I think these days one would be quite a fool to argue that personality boils down to just either one or the other: it has to be a combination of both."

that's completely true, and i've always leaned heavily towards nurture so i don't think we need to open that can of worms.

I wholeheartedly disagree with everything lonewolf is saying.

"No, amaq, every race/person doesn't completely assimilate into a given culture. That's completely not true. There ARE genetic differences between races beyond the superficial. No point denying that. But once again, that doesn't make them UNEQUAL. And that also doesn't mean that an individual can't be completely different from what their genetic predisposition is; there are just certain characteristics that they inherently lean towards."

i agree with that, i still feel that it is more of a cultural thing though. i know that i whole heartedly disagree with lonewolf's position that groups of blacks will inherently form a violent culture.

nowhere in there does it say that they are negative or positive.

Personally amaq, I think it all depends who's conducting the testing.

The difference in actual objective tests in math show that people who list themselves as caucasians and asians do better on average than hispanics and people of african/Caribbean decent - however, the difference between the averages between the races is tiny in comparison to the diversity (in scores) within a race.

Races are predisposed towards certain diseases, for instance.

No wait lonewolf, I checked a definition for it. It says "1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race 2 : racial prejudice or discrimination." Pretty much what moe said.

aren't their studies to prove that the genetics of race is nonexistent beyond physical characteristics?

no it's not, racism is about judging someone positively or negatively because of they're race, like saying white's can't jump, or blacks have huge dicks.

You suggested it and you know it, lonewolf. Don't be ridiculous. We can see right through you.

i would disagree with you moefreak, if you look at how any race completely assimilates into the culture that they are brought up in then i can't see your point.
