It seems to me that the only classification that would be halfway rational would be Afro-Eurasian, Native American, and Australian Aborigine, as those were the three regions that, until the European Expansion, were completely isolated from each other. "Blacks", "Whites" and "Asians" were all just various ethnic groups that shaded into each other. -- "Only two things are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe." - Albert Einstein ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
