Of course it isn't. Anyone who thinks otherwise has been brainwashed. Has anyone ever read the story "The Emperors New Clothes"?

Of course. To know this just look at the races that used to "exist". They're different than how we view it now. Human's didn't change, just our interpretation.

Ethnicity is a real, scientific thing. Race is just a social construct.

I look back to being a kid, I have pictures of black friends, Hispanic, and Asian. All growing up I never even thought about race until I was told about it. I think within race, there is culture but that's because of how people get grouped. So yes.

Yes. There are no clear racial divisions.

I'm very disappointed that most voted no. Can someone explain how it's not a social contruct?

Notice that none of those who voted no choose to defend that position.

There are three races; negroid, caucasoid, mongaloid. Race in humans is like "breed" in dogs.

That is incorrect. Some try to use those terms as defining race, but they describe nothing.

No, you are incorrect.

Please, don't show me modern, post-PC statements on race. PC dictates that if it can cause hurt feelings or something that can't be changed is unfair then it can't be true.

Sorry, do not mean to confuse you.

Terms like "White" and "Black" are largely social constructs, yes. There are no racial divisions in humans. Most scientist agree.

White and black are objective differences in color; however, the associated social consequences with being categorized as such are just constructs.

Race is more than skin color. Whites are Caucasian and so are people from India.

In the idea that you can group people in ways that are actually just continuums? No. In the fact that people are colored like different rocks? Yes.
