something that differenciates culture
s. it makes the people of that culture look different and sometimes overall act and sound different. no race is better than another because no one is the same in each race. there are dumbasses in every race and there are cool people in every race too. the difference of races starts stereotypes and rasism.
my race is caucasion but that doesn't mean I'm a redneck.
are insecure and afraid of different races.
There are four major definitions of this word, in order of importance:
1. Genus, species, or kind. Up until about 30,000 years ago, there were other races of humans, which included Neanderthals and Archaics, but they are thought to have been indirectly out-competed by modern Homo sapiens.
2. Any competition of speed or display of rapid movement.
3. Any fictional sentient species featured in fantasy or science fiction literature that is effectively human for purposes of characterization. In role-playing games, different races (i.e. elves, dwarves, humans, halflings etc.) can be selected for play, each with it's own inherent advantages and disadvantages.
4. A word wrongly applied to refer to the 6 major populations of modern Homo sapiens, which bear different skin colors but no important genetic differences.
"Would you date a person of another race?" some dude on a foum asked me.
"If she were an elf, half-elf, or halfling, maybe. Otherwise no." I replied.
Biologically, race is a subspecies within a species. The species that modern humans belongs to, Homo sapiens, does not have any subspecies so the term "race," in a biological respect, does not apply to modern humans. Race, however, is used as a socio-political category in many countries, including the United States. Historically, race has been used to create a hierarchy of races, with Caucasians at the top, but in current times, the term race has migrated away from this. Biologically, people of the same "race" can be very different from each other while two people of different "races" may be very similar.
On my application, there was a question for which "race" I am, but seeing as races do not apply to modern humans, I chose to not mark one.
Competition of speed in which the competitors start equidistant to a certain point that all racers attempt to reach. Whomever reaches said point first wins the race.
I finished third in the twenty-man race.
Probably the most kick ass kid there ever was or will be. A total rockstar. Everyone loves this maniac! If you're not friends with a race...you should be. Go out and pick up your very own Race today!
candace: "damn it! i went to get a race today, but i was told they are in way high demand."
sam: " oh i know! i am soooo glad i got mine before anyone else! "
An outdated word. There are not enough differences between humans to qualify as different races.
Race? I'm a human.
I'm a level 10 High Elf
In Texas Hold'em, or other similar poker games, "racing" is when two or more people are "all-in" with their chips and it is up to the cards and not betting to determine the winner.
Scott: I'm all-in.
Eric: I'll call.
Scott: Looks like we have a race on our hands.
