The world: Please, stop promoting the question 'What race are you?' in any capacity.

Please whenever this racist and scientifically ignorant question is posed, reply with simply human or refuse to answer. We are all a part of one species/race, Homo sapiens. Black, white, hispanic, etc... are not races. The promotion of these "subspecies" as separate entities is scientific racism. It is imperative that this question, "What race are you?", must be deemed nescient, passé, and flat out intolerable by the world as a whole in order to eliminate racist predisposition at the grassroots level. For further insight into this subject please refer to the American Anthropological Association statement on "Race". http://www.aaanet.org/stmts/racepp.htm, The European Union's Council Directive 2000/43/EC of 29 June 2000 implementing the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2000:180:0022:0026:en:PDF, or the American Association of Physical Anthropology's statement on Biological Aspects of Race http://www.virginia.edu/woodson/courses/aas102%20%28spring%2001%29/articles/AAPA_race.pdf
