    Absolutely different. Your German is a Caucasian while your Mayan is a Mongoloid.  Two different races.  In the most primitive earlier taxonomy the human race is made up of Caucasoids, Negroids, and Mongoloids.  It's unclear how the natives in India and Pakistan fit into this model.

    But the concept of race is an evolving one and there really is no single entirely accepted taxonomy for race. [See source.]  And today we have about as many different taxonomies as we have different physical anthropologists.  Which is to say...lots.  

    And the term race includes physical and behavioral characteristics.  So a race now includes way more than the color of the skin or the shape of the face.  It also includes the mores and ethics of each group of people.

    No.  Every person and every culture is exactly and precisely the same.  Good question, genius,

    Fundamentally, no

      Physical anthropologists believe fundamentally yes.  That's why there is a taxonomy for race.
