Here follows me touching upon the 5 most common arguments of race deniers. After that I follow it up with 11 arguments/evidence's of why race for humans (the concept of the human specie having sub-species) is no more controversial and strange than if any other specie would have them.

We have human races based on the same criterias as other species. Either all species have sub-species (races/breeds) or none of us have. At least be consistant. I will personally choose, the idea that sub-species (races & breeds) for species on earth, including humans, exist. There rather is something than there is not. When race has such a predictable value as it has, it is just as worthy as a concept as the more solid concept of species is. Superstructure and substructures exist and are quantifiable. Many people seem to confuse race with specie, race with color and the recognition of race as being equated with recognizing the legitimacy of racial-supremacism, which is an inherent slippery slope.

The most recent survey, taken in 1985 (Lieberman et al. 1992), asked 1,200 scientists how many disagree with the following proposition: "There are biological races in the species Homo sapiens."
The responses were: biologists 16% developmental psychologists 36%
A survey of eastern European anthropologists found that 75 percent of them agree with the statement: "there are biological races within the species Homo sapiens." (Kaszycka, 2003).
A survey of American anthropologists found that 69 percent of them accepted the concept of biological race (Leiberman and Reynolds, 1996). 3631 of 3636 individuals were placed in the right racial category after a whole mathematical, objective, statistical clustering analyzes by their own genes. Tang et al (2005). "Genetic Structure, Self-Identified Race/Ethnicity, and Confounding in Case-Control Association Studies". Am. J. Hum. Genet. 76:268--275, 2005.
One source of objective, statistically analyzing 51 human groups and 650 000 genetic markers, published in the world's most prestigious scientific journal "Science", and that the cluster analysis came up with 7 racial divisions. The clusters are consistent with previous classifications of physical anthropology, etc. Jun Z. Li, et al. (2008).
