Dogs and species were the better example because they can interbreed but birds can't. What I meant on the common ancestor is that all races are based on thousands of years of how and where they lived and the exposure to the sun. And the person who said well you had dark skinned in north america, the comment about that being fairly recent is correct too. I don't know of any archeaological finds showing thousands of years of humans on this continent. Africa, South America, the nordic countries, are due to thousands + years. Due to that and the diet it creates genetic changes or 'evolution' making each more immune and more prone to different sicknesses and such. I am unsure if preference for taste in foods, color choices, etc, how much is based on how one is raised and their culture vs will they be drawn to the same foods and taste no matter what.
What many label as racist things, I see as cultural observations. It has nothing to do with the color of their skin, but the culture of the people. On that is not negative, in many asian countries and those who immigrate to USA, they will tend to study harder and get higher grades because in that culture places high value on that and what they call family honor. They don't do that because of how they look it's the culture. And you may get ones who do not follow that and don't care, but a large enough percentage do and it's a noticeable difference from other cultures.
