Here is your Arabic lesson for today:

1. O you people. means ya ayuha al-nass The word nass means people (see Wortabet dictionary page 279B)

2. O mankind means ya ayuha al-rijala. (see Wortabet page 236B).

3. O you human being means Ya ayuha al-insan (see Wortabet page 236B).

4. O man/woman kind it would be: ya ayuha al-bashar (Wortabet 237B).

Very different words bashar, rijala and nass but you know no Arabic and I do.

So try again and good luck. And by the way the Qur'an in Q14:4 says that your Allah sent Muhammad only to the Hijzai Arabs and you ain't one.
