give him links to scientific statements saying otherwise
doesn't want to read the 1page statement
give him several youtube videos explaining the same thing less than 2min videos
doesn't care
says race exists and refuses to listen or read to anything
says jews are their own race too

Humans substitute "the environment", doing the selection that otherwise would be done by nature. For the dog the conditions the human puts it in is the environment.

Also, they're hardly a social construct as they are based on biological differences. Calling something a social construct is a cop out as literally everything can be called a social construct, from biology to math to language, it doesn't invalidate anything really.

I don't have one, nor do I pretend I do, but likewise I don't pretend that all human population groups are somehow the same when there are clear biological differences between geographically separate human populations living in different environments. Its like claiming there are no sexes and calling it a social construct despite the fact of sexual dimorphism in humans.

Secondly, this is a political topic at this point, and invokes calls of racism and discrimination so not like its a subject I'd touch upon in a public setting and most sane biologists won't either unless their conclusions are politically acceptable.

But they somewhat are. People took those geographic niches just too fast to leave enough time for significant differences to emerge between them. Not to mention this natural tendency of humans to travel and having some cultural awareness of effects of inbreeding (complicated marital arrangements favoring marriage between distant groups) has proven to exchange genetic information on really long distances.

What would constitute a "significant difference"?

(complicated marital arrangements favoring marriage between distant groups)
That's false, in-group marriages are the most common and have always been which is why you can find genetic differences even between groups living close to each other. Not to misunderstand tme, they overlap, but they can still be grouped separate.

could've vs genetic evidence of the first farmers from the ME and native European hunter gatherers being unable to digest milk 8000 years ago and the mutation appearing around 4000 years ago.
I know which side I'm taking, friend.

Also, your study doesn't even corroborate your claim

Using this approach, the exploitation of milk in the early Neolithic has been demonstrated to have occurred around 8000 years ago in Northwestern Anatolia and Thrace (Evershed et al., 2008), around 7000 years ago in the Carpathian Basin (Craig et al., 2005) and few hundred years later in Britain (Copley et al., 2003).
And we're not even talking about lactose tolerance, but exploitation of milk products with reduced lactose(!). The study continues;

These data from Anatolian sites s also provide us with complementary information[...](3) reducing or eliminating lactose, thereby rendering milk products digestible by lactase non-persistent individuals.
The last advantage is likely to have been of particular importance since genetic data are making it increasingly clear that these early dairying populations were mostly, if not entirely lactose intolerant

Then you look at race. Asians, Europeans, Africans. People from these three continents all look different,
just like males and females. Is it then, really that crazy to think that there might be genotypic differences?
(We have clear phenotypic differences, so we can really just put humans in different races based on that. But, to be the most accurate we should analyse and compare DNA)

I can tell you the reason OP.

They were taught from an early age the lie of evolution.
People told them that under different circumstances living beings develop differently.
For example they were told that, """""""""""""black people"""""""""""""""" have darker skin because they live in an area with more sun.
This lie leads them to falsely assume that there are genetic differences between humans, that is obviously false there is only one race, them human race.

You need to start with these people by explaining that evolution does not exist and all humans are EXACTLY EQUAL, except for their immediate environment.
One they have accepted that if you bring a """"""""""""""""""""""""""black person""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" to Europe he will immediately become identical to Europeans, except for their skin color.

I hop this helps you destroy these, anti-science, pro evolution retards.
There is only one race, the human race.

@Emberfire
The existence of race comes down to definitions: what is race? If races are nothing more than human populations that are distinguishable from each other (by outward characteristics or by genetic clusters) , then obviously race exists, even if the boundaries of those races are subject to debate. If "race" refers to some biological category with a solid and universally accepted definition, then it doesn't exist. In any case, what does it matter? The word "race" is toxic, and one can always refer to different groups as populations or something

Dog breeds are literally the best comparison to race, because just like human races they show the same tendency. Less genetic diversity but extremely high phenotypical and behavioral differences. Also, like dogs, humans were selectively bred, something idiots keep forgetting. Its like they forgot how human constructs like wealth, class, language, religion, civilization, and sexual selection could have had an impact on human genetics.

In fact, in spanish, they're called dog races.

Nothing to do with race. That has all to do with different genetics within the same species (homo sapiens).

None of this stuff is proof for race.

The truth is that it was only very very recently in the lifespan of homosapiens that different genetic features developed, as homosapiens spread out from Africa and moves to Europe, Americas etc... Those genetic features include skin colour, nose shapes etc....

All of us are homo sapiens and homo sapiens came from homo erectus (top kek at the name). All homo sapiens were dark skinned. It was not that long ago that the human race was entirely black. Black people need melanin for protection against UV light whilst the homo sapiens who went to Northern Europe (and then subsequently colonized the world) didn't need so much melanin, so developed fairer skin. That's why Italians are brown, almost arab looking and why Swedish women are stereotypically blonde with blue eyes. Italy gets a ton of sunlight whilst Sweden doesn't.

I'm not saying that you can't argue for races, just that these aren't arguments for them.

Here's my 2 cents.

In one way yeah races don't exist, we all just have genetics playing out through sexual reproduction and growth. That we can all reproduce together means that we're all one.

In another way that doesn't mean that we are all one because race does not revolve around the ability to reproduce. That would be species. Race is grouping of characteristics, obvious things like chemical composition and visual traits.
A black person and a white person can mate yes, and so they are the same SPECIES but that does not mean that they are the same RACE.

All races are one, but all races are not.
it's kinda zen yeah?

sub-suharan africans (people with purely african genes)

Honestly this is where the problem lies, we keep notating Africa as a homogeneous location that's somehow been isolated from outside populations until European colonization. When in truth it's an entire continent that's been laced with admixture everywhere for thousands of years. The black or "negro" terminology that's been used to brush multiple populations of various ancestries is thanks to the retardation of pre-genome sequencing scientists and civilians who didn't want to invest in critical thinking. Instead they developed the one-drop rule and utilized it for centuries merely for socio-political manipulation.

The fact is Africa's genome is complex and multifaceted, North Africa with European/Mediterranean admixture, East Africa with Arab/ Indian admixture, South East Africa (specifically Madagascar) with Austronesian admixture and South West Africa with Khoisan admixture. And that's just the admixture we can confirm through crosschecking "live" populations with genetic testing. There could be other admixture here that we can't properly identify.

@Illusionz

Why is it retarded when black people are more closely related to other black people than any other race or ethnic group?

Because honestly no other race or population gets painted with such a broad stroke utilizing of basic characteristics. Both the Khoisan and Negrito we're consider Black because dark skin/ kinky hair until genome sequencing proved otherwise.

So far the only time we gotten it right with identifying African populations separately is with the Moors and Ancient Egyptians. But that's only because Europeans are too obsessed with claiming Egyptians as a part of their own race while the Moors are just seen as Muslims of whogivesafuckancestry.
