What Are the Race Deniers Denying?

I've been hearing long enough statements denying the existence of race in
humans, but I've never been clear just what it is that is being denied.
Would someone please define the word and show examples of species in which
a) there are clearly demarcated races, b) other species where there is
only blurring, and c) where humans fall along the continuum? I've asked
this question before and got no satisfactory answer. But these Newsgroups
have a high turnover, so some race denier may be here that can answer my
question. I am NOT interested in learning that race is a sociological
concept, one that has no *necessary* connection to the biological concept.
I am quite well aware of this. What I want to know about is the biology,
since I don't think any race deniers deny that races exists in the
sociological sense.
