I don't think it has no meaning though. I just think it's been expanded to include more than three races in terms of physical characteristics. I think what can be said is that there is no such thing as technically as the human race. That's using it metaphorically rather than scientifically.
Honestly, I think we need better terms. Ethnicity, nationality, ancestry etc. carry meaning where race does not. The old concept of "race" has been shown to be invalid.
