There are 50 states in the Union and 50 definitions of "death" applied
to H. s. That doesn't mean that there's no such thing as "death". It means
that there is no agreement as to what it is. Anyone working in artificial
intelligence knows that there is no agreed definition of "life" either.
In an age of the Genome Project, vector plasmids and the routine
searching in databanks for DNA sequences, the idea of throwing up One's hands
in despair and opting for Oneness in racial matters because of the
`complexity' of racial classification smacks of intellectual dishonesty,
cowardice, idleness and cluelessness, in short, PC.
