As a general rule, yes

I look biology and I remember learning that r/k species are completely separate species

r/k describes different life strategies that exist on a spectrum (r = less offspring, more investment, k = more offspring, less investment). The r/k comparison can be made between any two populations, even individuals. They dont have to be separate species. But obviously some species are more k or more r depending on what species you are comparing them to

In the context of human race, the argument goes blacks are on one end of the spectrum and east asians on the other, with europeans falling somewhere middle. r/k selection theory works to explain some traits but not all of them. Obviously there are also more races than black, white, asian so the spectrum isnt so straightforward across all humanity. It works as a partial explanation for race differences at best

r/k slection theory was a favorite of Rushton. Ed Dutton is a more current proponent of this (partial) theory

Babies are still created from race mixing

Not relevant

but I think that r/k selection part is wrong.

I think you would be hard pressed to argue that blacks are not more k-selected than say, whites under the current welfare states in western countries (black dads never stay meme)

No, r is more offspring and k is less offspring.

K comes from capacity of the system. We are at capacity, so competition is high which require stronger, bigger, faster individuals to thrive, while in an r environment, it is not yet at capacity so you don't need to compete with others for resources and can have endless babies.

Oh I get it. Thanks a lot.

Just because r/k is applied to different species doesn't mean it can't be applied to a large species with vastly diverse breeds.

But niche theory only applies to animals of different species, humans don't compete with each other for resources!

Amazing how so many "educated"/Ph.D-types completely fail to have independent thought when it comes to critically assessing their dogmas. This demonstrates how indoctrinated they are and that more education does not equate to higher intelligence.

Do all dog breeds behave the same way? I mean they're all just dogs.

You're walking towards Lewontin's fallacy.

Babies are still created from race mixing.

This is not accurate.

The end result are still abominations with severe health issues. Such as the higher difficulty in finding organ/bone donations.

If you race mix long enough, you also get countries like Brazil. Which is 100% dysfunctional.

There's also a famous quote by Hitler explaining why race mixing is still wrong.

In saying this, I promise you I am quite free of all racial hatred. It is, in any case, undesirable that one race should mix with other races. Except for a few gratuitous successes, which I am prepared to admit, systematic cross-breeding has never produced good results. Its desire to remain racially pure is a proof of the vitality and good health of a race. Pride in one's own race—and that does not imply contempt for other races—is also a normal and healthy sentiment. I have never regarded the Chinese or the Japanese as being inferior to ourselves. They belong to ancient civilisations, and I admit freely that their past history is superior to our own. They have the right to be proud of their past, just as we have the right to be proud of the civilisation to which we belong. Indeed, I believe the more steadfast the Chinese and the Japanese remain in their pride of race, the easier I shall find it to get on with them

R/K selection is real. I wrote a post about it here on DebateAltRight a couple years ago.

Compared to white and Asian women, black women reach sexual maturity earlier, are more promiscuous, are more likely to be single mothers, and they hit menopause earlier. Black women also don't live as long as white or Asian women; they tend to die not long after they hit menopause.
