Racial Capitalization Question

Racial Capitalization Question.

When referring to a race of beings, when do you capitalize.

For example:
Have you ever seen a human?
Have you ever seen any of Human kind?
Have you seen any humans today?
Are you of the Human race?

Have you ever seen a dwarf/elf/orc?
Have you ever seen any of Dwarven/Elven/Orcish kind?
Have you seen any dwarves/elves/orcs today?
Are you of the Dwarven/Elven/Orcish race?



Thank you very much, I'd really appreciate the assistance, English classes were a long time ago.

Ah, it's always the little details...:-)

Clarifier: I am refering to races. I am interested in the proper grammatical form. I already know the plural forms. Geographical loction is not a factor for this querry. Thanks, Cheers!
