you've got "a different goatsbeard," certainly, but it is still a goatsbeard, the same way a Great Dane is a different dog from a chihuahua and yet both are dogs.
And in the same way that a human is a different primate than a chimp or a macaque.
That's pretty amazing that goatsbeard is that recently introduced. The dang things made up about 20% of my back yard's vegetation when I lived in Oklahoma.

This is just too preciously politically correct,
No, it's what's supported by the DNA data. Your average !Kung from Namibia differs immensely, as human variation goes, from his fellow "Negroes" that are of Bantu or Ethiopian descent. The genetic distance from Swede to Montegnard is small by comparison.
