People of Color: The Melanin Race

I have always, always had a problem with racial classifications. How can you possibly classify race? How can one with the same hair texture, same skin complexion, semi-features be classified under one or the other race?

Many people say there is no such thing as the "His panic" Race. No? Well if this isn't so, then how come his panics are in a separate category than let's say the white race or the black race?

We have all heard if it walks like a duck, talks like one, it is one right?

So, if someone has brown skin, is moreno"brown" or have darker pigment but is His panic, what race is this person? Surprisingly, on the census this person would be categorized as a Caucasian.
