This is sort of a spin off of the Trayvon Martin threads where race has been discussed.

I used the terms "most correct" because some lists include Australoid and some do not.

Australoid
As discussed before, the Aborigines, Melanesians, Papuans and Negritos come under the Australoid race. In short, the original native races local to the Australian subcontinent come under this category. Most anthropologists debate the distinctiveness of this race as sub races like Aborigines, Negritos, etc. are, genetically and physiologically, very close to the Negroid race. Hence, many anthropologists and genetic biologists believe that these should be categorized as sub races of the Negroid race. Therefore, we can say that the Australoid race is a classification of humanity which is based upon geographical location and regional culture rather than genetic and biological traits.

That was a brief and broad overview of the various human races that resulted post human evolution from simian ancestors. This list includes the four chief races of humanity from whence branch out the multiple sub races. Sub races can be as a result of inter-racial interactions, geographical isolation or any other natural or social interference to the evolutionary machinery.
