Race does not exist; it is nothing more than a social construct that humans created in order to satisfy their selfish desires.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, Office of Biological and Environmental Research, Human Genome Program,


"DNA studies do not indicate that separate classifiable subspecies (races) exist within modern humans. While different genes for physical traits such as skin and hair color can be identified between individuals, no consistent patterns of genes across the human genome exist to distinguish one race from another. There also is no genetic basis for divisions of human ethnicity. People who have lived in the same geographic region for many generations may have some alleles in common, but no allele will be found in all members of one population and in no members of any other."

Professor Alan R. Templeton, Ph.D., professor of biology in Arts and Sciences at Washington University continues, ""Race is a real cultural, political and economic concept in society, but it is not a biological concept, and that unfortunately is what many people wrongfully consider to be the essence of race in humans -- genetic differences," says Templeton. "Evolutionary history is the key to understanding race, and new molecular biology techniques offer so much on recent evolutionary history. I wanted to bring some objectivity to the topic. This very objective analysis shows the outcome is not even a close call: There's nothing even like a really distinct subdivision of humanity."


Why is this important? My opponent makes the claim that a specific race is better than another race. However, if race does not exist, then clearly this is not possible because both of the two things that he is discussing are nonexistent. Neither can be objectively better than the other. This means that you can negate.

My opponent dropped all of my arguments. Please extend them cleanly across the flow. Race does not exist. so no one race can be more awesome than another race.
