I am not Ptoing, even though it's true sometimes I've wished it were so!

Sorry, I can't explain why I made that mistake. Sorry Helm and Ptoing.

Haha, Helm, as if :P

Ymedron: Actually there is more genetic difference within a "race" than between "races".
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Hmm... So the overt differences between the different populations are proportionally minuscule compared to the diversity inside the population? :o Trying to figure it out... Hmm. Oh well. <:U

The amount genes that are responsible for visual differences (which make up what is perceived as race) are a fraction of 1 percent.

I've heard that 1% of DNA is what makes us different from the monkeys we evolved from..
Would make sense considering there's probably tons of old genetic stuff from millions of years of evolution.

I don't think it's worth talking in terms of races, I'm pretty sure there are genetic differences between groups of people that goes further than appearance , but how far it goes is not really worth finding out.
And as history clearly shows, nothing good can come from it.

Also, I mix up helm and ptoing all the time! Or at least I used to..

Races exist in a way, as in there are groups of people who were genetically isolated for long enough periods of time for the observable differences to arise. And race continues to exist just as in dogs. There is a reason blacks always win the sprints in the olympics. And there has never been a black world chess champion.

I wanted to try to get this thread back on topic, but a cursory search on the Internet for "big boobed chess masters" availed nothing of interest.  :(

That by definition is racist, but I have no idea if it's true or not and as I said, I'm not sure it's worth finding out.
And chess is a game born out of western culture, it's like saying there has never been a white mahjong world champion.
