A few views...:
I would rather replace the word "race" with "a karmically related human type" (where the color of a race only sometimes is directly related to the race, and at other times not), - in the manner it is used by H. P. Blavatsky and others.
(A) --- One reason for this is the following words by Blavatsky: "The Aryan races, for instance, now varying from dark brown, almost black, red-brown-yellow, down to the whitest creamy colour, are yet all of one and the same stock â the Fifth Root-Race"
- The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 249.
(B) --- And also: "But as the sequence of the Continents is made to follow the order of evolution of the Races, from the first to the fifth, our Aryan Root-race, Europe must be called the fifth great Continent." "
- The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 8.
(C) --- And also: "The Secret teachings show the divine Progenitors creating men on seven portions of the globe "each on his lot" â i.e., each a different race of men externally and internally, and on different zones"
- The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 77.
(D) --- And also: "The little Semitic tribe â one of the smallest branchlets from the commingling of the 4th and 5th sub-races (the Mongolo-Turanian and the Indo-European, so-called, after the sinking of the great Continent) â could only accept its symbology in the spirit which was given to it by the nations from which it was derived."
-The Secret Doctrine, Vol. I, p. 319.
(E) --- And also: "* Strictly speaking, the Jews are an artificial Aryan race, born in India, and belonging to the Caucasian division. No one who is familiar with the Armenians and the Parsis can fail to recognize in the three the same Aryan, Caucasian type. From the seven primitive types of the Fifth Race there now remain on Earth but three."
-The Secret Doctrine, Vol. I, p. 471. --- (I will add: "Artificial" in a sense no doubt because it degenerated for some 8-10,000 years ago and fell karmically as a minor group where most others of the same human types did not. Degenerated as a religious group with its seperatistic doctrines, and coarse materialistic phallic emphais in its doctrines. Doctrines now partly used by the Christians and in some instances even made worse. Dogmatic Fobia doctrines and Phallic doctrines will never really be able to promote altruism - only what is perceived as altruism - but which is emotional arousals. There are of course various degrees of all this. And even so so-called I)nitiates are said to be born in all races from time to time, and according to Balvatsky also among the Jews.)
(F) --- Se also Mahatma Letter 23b by the one called KH. For instance: " I told you before now, that the highest people now on earth (spiritually) belong to the first sub-race of the fifth root Race; and those are the Aryan Asiatics; the highest race (physical intellectuality) is the last sub-race of the fifth â yourselves the white conquerors."
This is what I get from Blavatsky writings and also from others who have taken a close study of the matter.
These are however only my views...But maybe I am wrong?
