I must admit I have never heard this exact distinction before.   

 

 

I never want to lose diversity.   It's like listening to a symphony instead of just one snare drum.

It's been proved - crossbreeding as often as not results in favorable results in animals.

Same is true of humans - but our society is kind of sick and twisted and just can't manage to be rational, logical and scientifically objective...

There is only one race - the human race.

That's been true for over 150,000 years.

Geneticists say that today's Sapiens have always been genetically similar enough to earlier species for there to be a 90+% probability that they would be capable of  producing viable offspring with as many members of the species - Erectus, Habilis, Neanderthalensis, and Denisovans as could be produced with members of Sapiens - their own species.

Race is an artificial construct that has always been rooted in prejudicial discriminatory social inequities such as slavery, class and other entirely artificial constructs.

 

The genetic variance between any designated artificial constructs of "race" are identical in breadth to the variance across the entire species.

 

Science has recognized the fact that race is entirely an artificial social construct for over a century.  

 

Almost all societies are unfortunately wrongly lagging way way behind.

 

That's what evolutionary geneticists who know much much more about it than laymen say...

Olderscout-segregation is racist-to support desegregation, but not integration, is racist.

Different words-same bottom line!

To desegregate is to remove the legal basis for the separation of the races.

 

To integrate is to bring together all segments of American society

 

To oppose integration is to demand the right to continue segregation as a "PERSONAL PERFERENCE". What neoRepublicans do not want anyone to notice is that retaining that right to exercise their "freedom of association" is something they demand extend to who their neighbors are, and who goes to school with their kids, and who they have to serve in their business, or who they have to hire.

 

The pathetic bottom line is opposition to integration is to continue segregation without the full force of law, and to deprive those discriminated against any legal basis for demanding their rights as citizens of the USA.

Integration:incorporation as equals into society or an organization of individuals of different groups ( as races)

Desegregation: is the process of ending the separation of two groups usually referring to races. This is most commonly used in reference to the United States

So now  your point?

To me the distinction is stark - any one else have thoughts?


Yes please clarify your statement?
