To answer this question there really isn't a "Black Race" per say. Black is not literally the color of the people commonly referred to as "Black". As a matter of fact "Black" people actually come in different shades of brown."Black" people range from light caramel to nearly black in color. Much of t…he population of the America's especially the Caribbean nations of Cuba, Haiti's, Dominican republic, Jamaica & others have a large "African" population as well as "African" admixture others like Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela & Brazil also have extensive "African" admixtures, along with the Middle East & Northern Africa. In many Latin nations dark skinned peoples have down played their "African" genes by using such terms as "Moreno" but rarely do they claim "Black" or "Negro"even with apparent African features.This has to do with the fact when colonial Spain & France ruled over the area light skinned "Blacks"or"Mulattoes" were seen as superior to the "Black" African slave populations & held privileges that weren't available to "Black" Africans slaves many of the "Mulattoes" along with the "White" populous later formed the elites of the newly created Nations of the America's. In Middle Eastern countries along the Red Sea their has been mixing with Africans for centuries especially after the birth of Islam. A large number of Arabs in Saudi Arabia for example have extensive African admixture. The Aksumite empire of what is now Northern Ethiopia ruled large swathes of present day Yemen & portions of Saudi Arabia. Ancient Egyptians were infact "Black" African similar to the Semitic & Cushitic Peoples of present day Ethiopia, Somalia & Horn of Africa in general. The modern Egypt we know today was "Arabized" after the birth of Islam. Also ancient Rome had a substantial "Black" population. The continent of Africa being the traditional home land of "Black" people is very diverse there are dozens of visible phyno types such as the Yoruba peoples of present day Nigeria which many "Black" Americans share common DNA with. Also the Amhara & Somali's despite their angular faces & sharp features are actually native to Africa these are just a few of the visible phyno types of the African Continent. The number of "Black" People world wide can range from 1.5 Billion to 2 Billion depending on who you define as "BlacK" as the term is very subjective most people in the world identify them self's by Ethnicity, Culture, Nationality or even Religious. Only in a few western countries like the U.K and the United States are such terms as "White & Black" used to identify people. (MORE)

"Considering pretty much everyone in china, India, the rest of Asia, Africa, south America and the middle east, as well as Greeks and Italians and heaps of other europeans are all exclusively, or all but exclusively brown eyed. I would estimate the figure around 95 percent of the global population…. Also the number of non brown eyed people is shrinking due to global population movements and related incursion of brown eyed people into the few areas of the world where brown eyes do not dominate. The Brown eyed gene is in most cases dominant. Additional: The figure perhaps rises to 98 or even 99% if you include those with near brown eyes Hazel for example. Conversly the number of people with blue or green eyes globaly is perhaps 1% or less. A figure that would probably very much surprise most people." Yet another person who is wrong. There are dark skinned people all over the world with blue and green eyes even blond hair. About 20% of turkey has green eyes. Green eyes are one of the worlds rarest eye color at 2%.

It's hard to say, but circumcision is most common in the United States and Israel.
Roman Catholic Answer That depends on how you define "Christian". The obvious answer is 100% as all Christians are Catholic, even if they are not a visible member of the Church, if they have been validly baptised and profess the Nicene Creed in its traditional interpretration. Those who call thems…elves "Christian" but do not belong to the Church have classically been known as heretics, the explanation of which is below. The current usage of the word "Christian" to mean practially anything is to be deplored, it is even used of pagans who display some virtue which could be considered Christian. Those who have been raised in separated faiths, such as protestants, are only material heretics as explained below. from Modern Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J. Doubleday & Co., Inc. Garden City, NY 1980 . Heresy . Commonly refers to a doctrinal belief held in opposition to the recognized standards of an establish system of thought. Theologically it means an opinion at variance with the authorized teachings of any church, notably the Christian, and especially when this promotes separation from the main body of faithful believers. In the Roman Catholic Church, heresy has a very specific meaning. Anyone who, after receiving baptism, while remaining nominally a Christian, pertinaciously denies or doubts any of the truths that must be believed with divine and Catholic faith is considered a heretic. Accordingly four elements must be verified to constitute formal heresy; previous valid baptism, which need not have been in the Catholic Church; external profession of still being a Christian, otherwise a person becomes an apostate; outright denial or positive doubt regarding a truth that the Catholic Church has actually proposed as revealed by God; and the disbelief must be morally culpable, where a nominal Christian refuses to accept what he knows is a doctrinal imperative. Objectively, therefore, to become a heretic in the strict canonical sense and be excommunicated from the faithful, one must deny or question a truth that is taught not merely on the authority of the Church but on the word of God revealed in the Scriptures or sacred tradition. Subjectively a person must recognize his obligation to believe. If he acts in good faith, as with most persons brought up in non-Catholic surroundings, the heresy is only material and implies neither guilt nor sin against faith. (Etym. Latin haeresis , from the Greek hairesis , a taking, choice, sect, heresy.). Of the some 2.2 billion people who are Christians approximately 1.2 billion are Roman Catholic. So slightly more than 50% of Christians are Roman Catholic. (MORE)
Varying statistics reported by our users: . 2 percent of the world's population has Down syndrome. .

There are approximately 600 million cars, passenger vans, SUVs and light trucks in the world today. Of those about 240 million are found in the United States. It is a little difficult to then do simple math and say there are 6.76 billion people in the world (according to the US Census Bureau) so …600 million / 6.76 billion = about 9% of the world owns a car. The reason is not all 600 million cars, passenger vans, SUVs and light trucks belong to private citizens. In that number you have taxis, police cars, commercially used vehicles like vans and pickup trucks for delivery services, SUVs and cars are used by fire departments, medical services, rental car fleets at airports around the world, even the world militaries use light passenger vehicles. One of the most effective weapons in warfare in Africa is Toyota pickup trucks with a machine gun bolted down in the bed. Likewise you have people who collect cars, and you have households in western nations where it is common to own more than one car. So the percentage of auto ownership globally is actually rather small, with a maximum of about 9%, but likely lower. A really interesting trend is in developing nations, especially Brazil, India and China. In 2008 China became the largest auto consuming country in the world, with its citizens buying more cars than people in the United States or Japan. Even more interesting, the number one importer in China is General Motors, with a similar marketshare in China as an importer that Toyota has in the United States. In countries like China, Brazil, and India, their population is pushing hard for a more western lifestyle, and they see the car as part of that lifestyle. China and India in particular are spending billions on highway infrastructure. Brazil is interesting as they have largely an ethanol based economy, with cars running largely on alcohol produced from sugarcane. That hasn't come without a price ecologically, namely the slashing and burning of rainforest to create sugarcane fields, and the dangers to the low paid workers who work those fields (this was highlighted well in National Geographic). However Brazil has proven you can build an extensive automtive infrastructure away from most fossil fuels. Given the shift in global economics we see today, it is highly unlikely, simply through sheer force of population and growing GDP, that the United States will ever return to the number one car economy in the world. The number of 240 million registered vehicles on the road here is actually down about 10 million vehicles in the last 12 months, as people have sold or taken their cars off the road, either due to environmental or economic reasons. It is actually very likely that the United States will drift to third or fifth place in auto consumption behind China and eventually India, and possibly Brazil, or Russia after the European economic situation stabilizes. This will have longer term a dramatic impact on choice of vehicles for people in the United States, how cars are sold, and what features they will have. Here in the United States you have roughly 160 million Americans who live in the 100 largest metro areas in the country. That means 140 million Americans still live in spread out suburban or rural areas, where public transit is impractical at best, and impossible in many cases (you're not going to be able to provide effective public transit to the citizens of Jefferson, South Dakota or Onalaska, Texas as examples). The elimination of a vehicle that provides personal transit in the United States, or other rural areas in the world is simply impossible until a better of safely and quickly moving people and their goods over distance door-to-door is created. In those metro areas a lot more could be done, and cities like Boston, New York and Philadelphia are great examples. However these cities benefit from infrastructure implemented 100 to 150 years ago, a strong rail network that foundationally was laid down during the Civil War, and public works projects like subways built at the beginning of the 20th century. The bottom line is the percentage of ownership will probably go up globally as India and China fight for world resources and their populations demand a middle class lifestyle, and many in western nations in suburban and rural settings still have a need for personal transit.
