Copying and pasting articles only tell us what the author of the article think and believe to be true. I would like to see some articulation from you on this matter.
By all standards, some creatures are just plain strange, making us do double takes because their compositions or habits or appearances defy our sense of logic and our way of viewing reality. Take the wildebeest, the warthog, the hyena, the brown pelican, the Shar-Pei. These animals, seemingly wrought by committee, make us laugh or shake our heads. Another such creature, of the human kind -- and perhaps the strangest of all -- is the black Republican. "

Sure Faheem, The articles I post are for the most part what I think. Why articulate my position when I can find articles that state it as I would, but offer concrete facts. I noticed in one of your posts that you said this issue was as ridiculous as when the NAACP tries to have "Negro" captitalized in the '60's. It that's the case, why then do you post in this topic?? I find these articles fascinating as they do do not show up in the "mainstream media". They discuss reality as oppossed to rhetoric and historical falsehoods that I think we have all been accustomed to. This is why this fascinates me. I have always had an interest from when I was a child when things were told to me, that in my eyes, did not make sense. This was from my own deduction. "Why is my grandmother and father white??", "they are NOT white, they just look white." "Well if they look white, how can they not be white???" This is a dialogue that would transpire betwwen my mother and me when I was about 4 years old. It didn't make any sense to me then because I knew what I saw. And there's nothing more honest than the observations of a young child. No, I do NOT want to be white. Anyone who knows me personally will attest to that. I just want to be me, hence my name IndependentMan which corresponds to my name on another forum.
