Flaws in the race theory

No.12989743 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
If the race theory doesn't fit half of the world's population (the new world isn't depicted but most of it is mixed race), is it real?
You can't just push a theory that doesn't fit half of the people that are alive.
How can you say that races exist when Indians and arabs (2.5 billion people) don't have a race to belong to?

For a while i've wondered what is it about anons that makes this place what it is. I also wondered the same about other sites, including the bigger, boogey sites like r*ddit.

So a few months ago i came across this chart and thought it illustrated some interesting psych pathology. Specifically, it explained to me how some people can be very competent yet extremely boring, and likewise others very lively but, surprisingly, very incompement. It also ties with the known fact that historically important people come from families suffering from these conditons but were only partial gene carriers that gave them the edge.

The analogy to 4chan and r*ddit then seemed pretty straight forward given that r*ddit can have very well versed people around, but is also a total chore and just dull in general. 4chan, on the other hand, may overflow with bullshit and literal morons, but also delivers some real gems that i am confident I'd find nowhere else and have shaped me over the years.

The way it's mapped in this chart, in my mind, explains very nicely why this rare jewel phenomenon exists and why this place is still worth its salt despite obvious baggage. A balanced medium might be efficient and carry the everyday tasks, but it's the testing fringes that reveal the cutting edge.
Thoughts?
