You want a lesson? Here it is. I will go slow so you can keep up.
When the question is who is the fastest man on earth, we let them run and we measure. Objectively. We don't go into sob stories, genetics, fossils, who was oppressed and how. We use what we call a stopwatch and a fake gun to let them know when to start running. Got it so far?
The fastest man running 100 meters dash will reach the finish line first. Still with me? As each crosses the finish line, his time is recorded. Then, all results are tabulated and compared. Now, here is the thing: the guy who registered the SHORTEST time - usually expressed in seconds - is declared the winner. The best. The fastest.
I hope I haven't lost you.
The race between the races can be measured, too. For example, by the number of inventions and patents, the number of life saving medical procedures, the number of life saving drugs, the number of world-class universities and the engineering schools, the number of satellites, the number of world-class chess players, the number of hydrogen bombs and the ICBM's, or any number (not adjectives) you can attach to a specific race. Are you still OK?
BTW, theft and transplanting white wealth from the US to China since 1973 does not count. So, if you want to throw China into the mix, skip anything after the American stupidity - started by Nixon - helped the Chinese thieves get to where they are now at our expense.
