Race

Posted By Snow at 10/31/2011

Even if a thousand times you deny
In your blood there is my breath

OK! So guess what race that guy is..

Obviously the imprinted language is Indonesian. So yeah - he's Indonesian. He speaks Indonesian. He eats, live and his family is Indonesian. But... he has a look, which is not the typical Indonesian look. Oh, how can he not look like his own race! (◠o◠) ماشاء الله

Malaysia have such foreign blood too - like Juliana Banos, Zara Salim Davidson, Zeti Akhtar... People who look foreign you expect them to speak British English. But they're actually locals, perhaps of mix parentage. So believe it or not, Juliana Banos can speak malay fluently. At first, some people thought this half-French can't speak malay. But she's as fluent as this German kid. (◠v◠)

So, that is the Indonesian & Malaysian people for your thought.

Anyway. Let's get to the big question. WHAT IS RACE?

"A lot of the difficulty in talking about race has been a lack of agreement on what “race” means. In the past, the idea of pure races also included an ordering of certain races as inherently superior to others.

We reject this idea absolutely.

However, that doesn’t mean that there are no genetic differences between populations of different ancestral origin. A few of our features use the genome-wide data of reference populations from around the world to trace the origin of pieces of an individual’s genome.

Some customers have complex patterns depending on where their ancestors originated. These reference populations aren’t “races”; they’re representative samples of peoples who have lived in a single place for a very long time and have thus accumulated different sets of genetic variants over time." - Anne Wojcicki | ref

ماشاء الله so what... some people have accumulated such a rich gene pool - that they're beyond being defined as a single race? And thank you... Arabs or Jews aren't necessarily the superior race! Bigger maybe, ha ha... wait that depends. Coz when I went for hajj I sized up the arabs, & I think I wasn't such a midget.

As the month of hajj is here. Again I'm sharing this... ماشاء الله

"All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action" - Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

from his Last Sermon
recited at Mt Arafat during his Farewell Hajj

Wow. Anatolia is one of archeologically richest places on earth. He said, they link between east & west. Actually he said - it's the only place that link between east & west.

But I thought of Spain. Maybe he meant east as in the chinese east? Spain is more on the african side. Ummm... I dunno. The important thing is the food, ha ha. (◠9◠)

Narrated Mujahid

'Abdullah bin 'Umar said, "Allah's Mesengger took hold of my shoulder and said, 'Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler."

The sub-narrator added: Ibn 'Umar used to say, "If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and (take) from your life for your death."

[Sahih Bukhari 8.76.425]
