I am curious what people think is the worst race and why?

Mechanically or thematically? Either way I've never really been able to wrap my head around the races in TES. I don't understand them much past one-dimensional stereotypes, except possibly the Dunmer, just because of how much diverse culture is presented in Morrowind.

I know that I get really annoyed that Altmer are the tallest but the slowest because of their weight score.

I thought it was the other way around. Altmer actually have the potential to be the fastest thanks to their tallness. Take an argonian with identical speed, athletics and carryweight and altmer will outrun the Argonian simply because of tallness.

Imo the worst race in Morrowind is Bosmer. They don't have any power or stat that's particularly outstanding and because of their short height they make slower runners.

Yea it's actually the opposite. See the note at the bottom here: http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Races

Only race in Elder Scrolls that can produce soap. And what do the smelly Imperials use it for? Alchemy! :|
At least Dunmer got a hint and try to overpower the smell with Telvanni Bug Musk.

Well, Imperials are bland as hell, so I might go with that. I also wouldn't play an Argonian or Khajiit in vanilla Morrowind, though, because of the annoying restrictions on boots and helmets. Thank goodness for mods that allow them to be adapted for beast races. Vanilla Bosmer racials also suck, but that can also thankfully be modded. So, yeah, Imperials. Because modding them to be not-bland would take a shitton more work than downloading a mod to allow making boots and helms beast-compatible or making Bosmer racials good.
