    My view is that race is not a social construct, but a instance of different complexities(i.e humans). As oppose to my view is that race is a social construct; made up by humans to communicate a phenomenon. My view is that race is weighted toward the phenomena, not input of persons.

    Below is an explanation of the phenomena.

    Why do you compete for high standing around knowledgeable people? Why do you categorise people around you?

    When was the white man a victim of racism, if not the presence of the other man at present?

    Would racism be a thing if nobody got hurt?

    I answer these questions:

    a) I do to be powerful, or for my viewers to be powerful.

    b) I categorise people for many of reasons, but in the case of race, to be wise of the concept.

    c) I think racism would be accepted. I think there is a severe case of hurt for racism to be such a problem.

    In the purest sense, races should be understood as races, and race is not a social construct; as a social construct understanding each other can be difficult, but political or social ties may be eased.

    Race is a not a social construct, by the fact races are on separate sides of a spectrum, even if that spectrum is considered Earth.

    This is my view, can you change it?

    You'll have to explain it in much better English, and I would suspect greatly improve your knowledge of ideas of race, genetics etc before most people are going to try and change anything.

    Maybe start at the basics.

    What do you think "race" is?

    Race is a natural phenomenon. A person's race is determined by genetics, and results in different skin colour, facial features, personality traits, etc. Genetics are different because of natural conditioning and mutation.

    Humans were originally black, who moved East and West. In the present some humans are white, and the spectrum between them.

    Where was my English bad?

    You are not a man.

    You are not courageous.

    You lay in bed fantasising (bizarre racial, homophobic and not family oriented stuff deleted).

    Young girls hate you, you do not respect her.

    You don't know how to fight, you're as horizontal and vertical as the book.

    No English isn't my first language, my first language is confidence and fatherhood.

    You're a disgrace, end of story.

    You lost my respect.

    The thing in bold is not like the other 2 things you mentioned.
    Skin colour is controlled by very few genes and is a very superficial difference between people.
    "Personality" on the other hand is such a complex thing that people with a far better understanding of this sort of subject than you don't understand it.
    Personality traits aren't determined by the "race" you belong to. That sort of thinking is old fashioned and not born out by the facts (or indeed interacting with people of many "races" that all have different personalities.

    As an interesting fact, though, lately studies show that be it in humans or animals (I wrote a bachelor thesis about this in birds), melanin present in hair, skin and so on does affect some of the personality traits. I wouldn't say a race determines personality, but the abundance of melanin, be it within or between populations should (in average) affect some personality traits like aggression and sexual activity or in animals also dominance. All of these are greater with more melanin present.
    ...sooo, you could technically say that genetics can influence personality a little bit :Angel:

    Just google "melanin personality" and you will find several sources.
