Francis-- I think there very well may be differences among the races. Whether some make the race in question superior or inferior probably depends upon the skill or talent being considered. But the point you make is the more important one. Even IF one race were, on the whole, superior in some attributes to other races, people are still individuals. I am smarter, more athletic, taller, etc. than at least one person of every other race. I am also dumber, less athletic, shorter, etc. than at least one person of every other race. So, while there MAY be tendencies within the various races, it is the individual who counts. Failing to consider individual skills, talents and abilities not only harms the individual. It harms us all.
