Taxonomy is an interesting science and there are two groups of Taxonomists; the splitters and the groupers (not the fish).  In the 1800's taxonomist believed that the negro was different from the Caucasian.  Through genetics we now know that we are all bothers and sisters.  I, for one, believe that we should clump the two together.
