Ex-Metapedia sysop. In 2013, I changed my views on race. See scientfic consensus to see why human "race" is not a useful scientific category, or accurate way to describe human biological variation.

There are so many possible distinctive biological races that the [race] concept is virtually meaningless. We can only concur with Howells’ modification of Livingstone’s 1962 quote: ‘There are no races, only populations’” (Ousley et al. 2009:74). (Livingstone’s original quote [1962:279] was “There are no races, there are only clines”.)

See here for a debunking of re-definitions of race by modern racialists. "Genetic clustering" racialism also refuted: here.
