This is a list of lists of various sentient civilizations, species, races and cultures.
Aside from the obvious mutant-ghoul-human and cultural bigotry (tribals vs. townsfolk, Vault City vs. everyone else), racism and sexism is alive and well. A person's skin color, status, and career are always good excuses for fear and hate to build upon, although communities like NCR and Modoc would have less of a problem with this. The Great War may have brought some communities together, but it also made isolated communities as well.
Italics means that the player can choose regardless if they are the one in control or not
The vehicles of the game are split into different classes. These are listed below with the fastest car of the class at the top, and the slowest at the bottom;
In a race, the player may not exit his/her vehicle and can respawn to the last checkpoint by holding down Triangle or Y, except in Free Race or Cannonball Run.
A GTA Race is essentially the same as a normal Race, but the competitors may use weapons to kill or slow down the competition. You may also exit and enter other vehicles. There are two additional features for a GTA Race, including which Weapons will spawn on the track (All Weapons, Off, Health Only, Pistols, SMGs, All Guns or Guns & Grenades) and Auto-Aim (Allow or Disallow). The Rocket Launcher and Molotov Cocktails also appear, but only on the "All Weapons" setting.
If you die in a GTA Race, you will respawn near your last completed Checkpoint on foot, next to a Faggio.
However, these races can be very cheap and turn into impromptu Deathmatches, as other players often block off the road near a weapon location and kill many players, often getting more money than the winner of the race.
Checkpoints are demarcated by an arrow or, if a player is directly facing one, a flag icon. The maximum number of checkpoints is fifteen.
When a player has completed a lap, information is displayed at the top left corner of the screen, showing the lap number completed and time taken in seconds.
Race is ideally played on the large, flat map Blood Gulch. Playing on Sidewinder, the only other vehicle-enabled map in Halo: Combat Evolved, is more difficult, as some of the checkpoints spawn on high ledges that are difficult to reach while driving a Warthog. On close quarters maps like Prisoner or Damnation with heavy weapons can result in highly chaotic game, with players more focused on killing one another rather than actually trying to complete laps.
Race was removed from the list of playable gametypes in Halo 2 -- likely due to its unpopularity -- and replaced with the new gametype, Territories. Race did not return in Halo 3, although features of both Territories and VIP can be edited to recreate a similar experience. Bungie has created a gametype that is somewhat like Race called Rocket Race, found in the Team Doubles playlist of Halo 3. It is a variant of VIP in which everybody is invincible (except for assassinations) and carries a rocket launcher. The player that is not the VIP is supposed to drive the VIP in a Mongoose to a territory.

Desmond crashed on the Island during a solo sailing race around the world, sponsored by Charles Widmore's foundation.

When he arrived in L.A. to train for the race, Desmond encountered Libby, who dontated her late husband's boat Elizabeth for him to use in the race.

The Races of RuneScape include:
The term subspecies refers to a biologically distinct subdivision of a biological species. The Y'bith, for example, were a subspecies of the Bith species. While obviously similar to other Bith, they differed in their weaker eyesight, more sensitive skin, thicker bones, stronger hands and feet, and ductile mouth structures.
A related term was race. While members of different races within a species were capable of interbreeding and producing viable offspring, members of different species generally could not. In casual discourse, however, the term "race" would often be used where species would be technically correct (especially when referring to different sentient species.)
In addition, it was often difficult to tell if a population was a race, a subspecies, or a distinct species, and the division was often arbitrary or cultural. The Theelin, for example, were capable of interbreeding with baseline Humans, but were referred both as a race and as a distinct species.
