Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Now there is no debating that. Anyone who tries to deny the fact that "school vouchers" have a racist past, and most likely a racist modern-day intent, have their heads buried in the ground. Of course, many White racists will deny it to the end, and their Black-faced, chicken-eating, greasy-grinnin', coon-shuffling lackies will follow them to the ends of the Earth and beyond.

Actually, "Caucasoid" is a broad geographico-ethnic category that includes many people (not just Whites). The original Caucasoids were Central Asians, Semites and Eastern Europeans near Central Asia. Typical "Caucasoid" features include tan-to-light brown skin, wavy-to-curly hair, big jutting noses, rounded eyes and the ability to grow thick beards. Western Europeans are just barely "Caucasoid" (they are only in that group due to their relation to Eastern Europeans and South Russians), and...

On racial categories, one case-in-point on how broad "racial" categories are is Central Asians. Central Asians (peoples from Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Kahazakstan, Turkey, Iran, etc.)are Caucasoid, yet they don't resemble Western Europeans very much. Central Asians have rounded (actually, semi-Monogoloidic eyes), big noses, fullish lips, wavy and/or curly hair, and brown skin. About 100,000 years ago, some Central Asians traveled eastward into Asia (which...

There are several problems to my mind following your line of thinking. Firstly, it goes to far in the direction of psychologizing racism. I simply can not equate racism with a belief system.

Why is that so surprising? You know how biologically diverse most African-Americans are, and probably British Blacks/Africans too (to a lesser extent).

Biologically speaking, a Black man is more genetically similar to a White man than he is a Black woman. There is more genetic difference between genders than races. On...
