I, as a fundamentalist Teddist. interpreted Ted as saying that race as a biological concept is irrelevant compared to the way human relations are conducted in the real world, and your more liberal Teddist beliefs led you to interpret his words in a different way. I therefore apologise if I mis-interpreted Ted in the first place.
