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.

Race is a bioligical term used to classifly living things. It goes genre, species, sub-species and then race.
Humans for one have 5 100% pures races currently.
Caucasoid (Europe, West Asia and North Africa), negroid (Sub-Saharan Africa), mongoloid (East Asia, Oceania, the Arctic and the Americas) who take up the majority of the worlds population. There is also a minority of capoid (Southern Africa) and austaloid (Australia and Melanesia.)

Contray to popular belief race has nothing to do with religion and natonality. Nor is the myth that caucasoids are the "plain" race which all the rest are variations of. All races of man have unique physical featues, not just skin colour.

Negroids have short shaggy hair, high cheek bones and almost perfectly round eyes. Not just the fact they are "black people".
Caucasoids have quite alot of exess hair, large foreheads and low jaws. Not just the fact they are "white people".

That nice young man who works in the local SPAR is a member of the caucasoid race.

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.

something that differenciates cultures. 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.
rasists are insecure and afraid of different races.
