Given millions of years, different climates and different sets of circumstances might breed characteristics in new post human species which would out-compete other post-human species. Imagining if all of civilization fell into ruin and we returned to a hunter-gatherer state, never to achieve technology again... But I'm willing to bet predicting which "race" would flourish would be impossible. Because the "why"'s of the matter are shrouded in speculation. Hypothetically, three million years later Homo Postsapian Africanus might end up the dominant Homo Postsapian species.

It is possible, especially as there is no context for how they are better. Some ethnic backgrounds are statistically likely to be taller than others, this leads to being better in situations where height is advantageous. Some ethnic backgrounds lack the enzymes that break down alcohol, therefore they would be worse at drinking (not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but it is a difference).

Whether one race is inherently superior in all regards, that I would have to disagree since I have never seen anything to support such a claim.
