If the is no race, do we classify ourselves according to where we are from, that is origin.
Would this mean white people, so called Asians, blacks, arabs born and raised in Africa, become Africans. What happens then to blacks in America, Britian, carribean do they stop calling themselves Africans and call themselves Americans, British, Carribean.

I read in some post sometime back that people in the ancient world never classified themselves as a race. The question is how did they classify themselves. Does it mean they were not aware of their physical differences.

I ask this because historically people with similar physical biological characterisitcs have predominatly lived together in a community. Africa has always had black people and is still predominalty black, Europe has always had white people and they are still predominant, just like china etc. Now if people did not recognise these differences which have been classified as racial differences then china, Africa, Europe should have always had people of all physical characteristics, but till today you find people of largely the same or closely related biological characteristics living together or in proximity, is this not an awareness of so called race and therefore deliberately moving in a community of people who look like you.

I am a person in the universe who is a victim of white supremacy. I am trying to become what I was put here to become, a Universalman, but the racists (white supremacists) are retarding me...keeping me from becoming a Universalman...by keeping me retarded.
