I am so tired of race baiters judging by skin color when we are all one human race.

There are no pure races anywhere on the planet. Everyone is a mutt.

BLM does nothing but divide us. All these crybabay try hard "look how progressive I am" types do nothing but categorize every single person into some kind of group, then label that group as good or bad.

I'd go as far to say BLM is a domestic terrorist organization, due to their senseless violence and rioting in the name of politics.

I agree with you. Elevating skin color has become a defacto religion for the left.

For a group that claims they're against racism, they don't help much by making every single thing that ever exists and happens about race, lol

Though I disagree many of the factual assumptions of BLM, I don't have a problem with the name. If their position is that black people are being unfairly targeted by the police because of their race, they're not obligated to make the focus about all people. There's no problem in saying "black lives matter" if they are the ones whose lives you think are being systematically undervalued by the system. The problem is with their factual assumptions, not with the name, which is just a logical reflection of those assumptions. "All lives matter" is too vague to be the slogan of any movement.

90% of black homicides are from other blacks(https://www.factcheck.org/2015/11/trump-retweets-bogus-crime-graphic/).  If blacks want to save themselves, they should start by not killing themselves.

Can you give an example of what you mean? If BLM maintains that people of a certain color are the targets of racist cops, then how is it racist to treat these people differently than the people who are not targets?

There is nothing inherently wrong about BLM. It just happens to be a ridiculous movement based on lies. If you want to call it "racist" to think that blacks are the victims of racism and thus differ from other people in being targets of racism, then okay.

Don't play the race card. I am a moderate who left the democrats a while ago. I have agreed with all lives matter the whole fucking time, because I am tired of apologizing for something that I did NOT do. I have been a moderate since I was 15, so please kiss my ass. You just never got to know me. Also, both parties suck.

As long as sufficient loci are used (160 is a good amount), human heterozygosity disproves the "all one human race" conception.

The goalposts do not need to be moved to such a ridiculous extreme.

Many a time a human has called a colour red, when a different hue is also considered red. When does red stop being red? When does orange start being red?

Similarly, as we realise colours are social constructs, race categories are, too. However, once the categories are established, the filtering is not socially constructed, but rather filtered through genetic clustering. In other words, if we agree that red is red, and that green is green, due to the hue values, you cannot put green into the red category and say that it belongs there.

Color is not a "construct" it is an actual entity. We can manufacture pure reds with a specific wavelength and measure them exactly with precision science equipment. We cannot manufacture or even observe a pure human race.

Try again.

I think we agree on this. Colour exists in reality, but the terms we use to define colours are social constructs. Would you not agree?

We cannot [...] observe a pure human race.
Again, does red stop being red if it's not pure? Are we only allowed to call pure reds red? Can you see how you're moving the goalposts?

False equivalence. Color does not equate to race
