SirEattonHogg: BraveNewCheneyWorld  Spiffy!?  It's a farking shame.  In several generations we'll all look very much alike.  I prefer variety and individuality to a world of bland similarity.

Brazil is supposedly even more mixed in terms of races than the US, and their people hardly look bland and similar.


Countries in the Western Hemisphere are very young.  Brazil is about 200 years old -- that's about 8 human generations -- and many of its people probably are descended from immigrants that arrived more recently than that.

hundreddollarman: I thought this was going to be a thread about hot multiracial women.


anyone having issues with miscegenation just needs to check out mixed race hotties, and argument invalid.

and race isn't an issue now. there are historical racial issues leading to poverty, but then our policies should address those issues today & not perpetuate a second class standard for racial minorities.

but, hey, if my family can get ahead due to racist politics about mud people, great!

whatever box we need to check, we'll check.

jshine: Looking at the math behind the Hardy-Weinberg principle seems to suggest that they are implicitly assuming non-integer numbers of individuals are possible. ...that is, that its possible to have (say) 0.3333... of a person. In a large enough population (7 billion of us), that's probably a reasonably safe assumption, since a single person is a small percentage of the population and the difference between a discrete-valued and a continuously-valued variable is tiny, but its still only approximately true.

If one considers a population with a total of (say) 10 individuals, where the difference between a continuous and discrete-valued variable is more significant, it would certainly be possible to drive a gene completely into extinction.

/one has to be very careful applying math to biological populations, since continuously-valued variables are rarely exactly appropriate -- lest one run into the "atto-fox problem"



Yeah, duh!


Anyway, what you said is also applicable to a breakaway sub-population that goes into inhabit a new environment. In this case, the genetic makeup of each successive generation is more subject to chance (see genetic drift).

Wasn't there a theory also that such processes and geographic isolation resulted in the human "races" and why races look different.

So, we'll all be members of aslightly tanned with black hair boring mongrel race as lamented by BraveNewCheneyWorld. But as you note that's generations out there - even more than the age of all countries in the Western Hemisphere - assuming if we were all having kids with persons of another race, which presumably most people aren't, even in this country.

Even if everyone was busy making mixed-race babies, honestly does anyone really give a damn about what will happen to your respective race or racial ethnic group 3 - 4 centuries from now?   I sure as hell don't.

I hate to admit it but... Well... They were kind of cute. I actually recently did a video search to see what they were singing about. Needless to say, it had been years since I'd heard of them and someone reminded me of them in a /. post so I went off and had a listen. They couldn't sing worth a damn, play their instruments well, and the subject matter was entirely as I'd expected it to be which was why I'd never gone to look for it way back when they were still in the news. *sighs* I wish I'd never gone to look/listen. I could have at maintained the illusion that they were, at least, cute.

I got that same thing from my fiancée when filling out my census form except with the religion part. I checked None for mine, but she got mad and said I should put Baptist because my parents were Baptist and brought me to a Baptist church for about 2 years when I was 6-8 years old. I never believed in that crap or practiced it. She put Catholic as hers even though she doesn't believe or practice the religion, but grew up going to Catholic school. I was confused as to why she identified as a Catholic even though she doesnt practice or believe and then I remembered she grew up in Newfoundland where there was always tension between Potestants and Catholics. Even within her family, one side is Anglican and the other Catholic and she grew up being called "Blackie" and a "Mick" by the Anglican side.

I think the whole thing is stupid, especially when she argued that you are born with your religious affiliation. I guess even smart people have dumb ideas.

olddinosaur: The last time I checked, people of all races were eligible to vote in Amerika since 1872, and women were allowed to vote since 1920.


Not so much, either legally or in practice:

a) Most prominently, Jim Crow laws that were rapidly passed in the wake of the 14th Amendment were explicitly designed to disenfranchise not only African-Americans but any person who gained citizenship and voting rights through the Reconstruction Amendments (a fairly common method was the use of poll taxes and literacy tests, with "grandfather clauses" which conveniently exempted white males who had ancestors with established citizenship before the Reconstruction Amendments were passed).  Whilst they may have been eligible de jure under federal law, African-Americans and even groups with African-American ancestry that were not considered African-Americans per se (such as Melungeons, an Appalachian metis group that includes Cherokee, African-American, and Irish ancestry) were both de jure (via Jim Crow laws and "one drop" laws that legally defined anyone who had any discernible African-American--and in many cases, Native American--ancestry as Legally Black) and de facto (by voter intimidation in those rare cases where a literate and independently non-poor African-American TRIED to get the franchise) disenfranchised; this situation pretty much lasted well into the late fifties to early sixties, and took an act of Congress as well as National Guard intervention and a whole lot of civil disobedience to correct.

(And some would argue--rightfully, IMHO--that the situation is STILL not entirely corrected; the effort that used to go into poll taxes and literacy tests now goes into "voter ID" laws--in more than a few states with a history of not only explicit disenfranchisement of non-whites but even such things as "sundown towns" where it was literally illegal to Exist While Brown (and in the case of Indiana, the state was legally a sundown state where laws existed on the books well into the fifties technically making it illegal for anyone of colour to take up residence) this is ALSO meant as a method to disenfranchise African-Americans in particular and the poor in general--knowing damn well that (for instance) poor families may not be able to get transportation to a DMV, or supporting documents required for an ID (anymore, a certified copy of a birth certificate is needed as well as other documents--there is no provision for ordering a certified birth certificate from the state department of records, for starters, and it's not uncommon for African-Americans from about their forties upward in the Southeast to not necessarily have these documents--home births being more common)...much less often having to fork over for the ID because the DMV neglected to notify them that IDs for voting only were free.)

b) One notable population that did NOT get full citizenship rights and was legally ineligible to be granted US citizenship were First Nations people and folks of First Nations descent; in fact, NDNs (and children of foreign diplomats) are the ONLY people who were outright exempted from jus solis and jus sanguinus citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment--and in fact, it was also legally impossible for a First Nations person to even become a naturalised citizen; ANY person of First Nations descent was essentially considered an "illegal alien" to be deported to their "homeland" reservation (ironically, it was the last ditch attempt by the Cherokee Nation to avoid ethnic cleansing in Georgia by suing in the Supreme Court that established the whole concept of First Nations as a "dependent nation"--legally, similar to the status of American Samoa, where people are US nationals but not US citizens).  Simply admitting you had ancestors of First Nations descent was in fact legally enough to deny one citizenship, and a surprising number of First Nations groups in the Southeast in particular survived and avoided ethnic cleansing by passing as "black Irish", "black Dutch", or even mixed-race populations (and there were actual metis communities founded as well, like the Melungeon).

First Nations people did not become eligible for US citizenship until 1924 (when Congress mass naturalised every person in the US of NDN descent), and did not receive full civil rights until World War II--and again, there are a LOT of things pointing to things STILL having a long way to go (particularly in regards to how much sovereignity that tribal governments are allowed to have in practice--among other things, they cannot prosecute felony offenses committed by non-tribal members, which has led to a bit of a rape epidemic on a number of reservations--and the BIA not exactly being a good ward of the money they're supposed to be holding in trust for First Nations as compensation for NDNs being subjected to ethnic cleansing and mass violation of treaties).

In addition, many states in the Southeast explicitly included people of First Nations descent in their "one drop" rules (basically defining NDNs as Legally Black)...and this was on the lighter end; much more common were laws (that have been on the books since the first major acts of ethnic cleansing against the "Five Civilised Tribes", and are STILL on the books but legally unenforcable thanks to the Civil Rights Act) that were the exact equivalents of laws in "sundown towns" and the "Sundown State" of Indiana that prohibited people of First Nations descent from living or even loitering in those states.  If anything, someone of (say) Cherokee or Creek descent had it worse in some cases than African-Americans, hence why it was so common to try to pass as "high-yella" of some variety.

In fact, there were even times where explicit exemptions had to be given to some groups--the state of Virginia explicitly included First Nations as a group of Legally Black folks in its Jim Crow laws...and had to carve out an explicit exemption for descendants of Pocahantas (thus making at least her descendants Legally White) lest fully half the Virginia legislature be legally disenfranchised.

c) Another group of people who were functionally prohibited from US citizenship (and for a period, US immigration as well) were people of Asian descent; after a Supreme Court ruling that essentially upheld jus solis citizenship for a Chinese-American, laws were passed that essentially completely barred people of Asian descent from citizenship (and even prohibited them from entering the country as "undesirable persons"--this at the same time as massive immigration from Europe).  In addition, a lot of Western states passed rough equivalents of "sundown town" laws that prohibited settlement by people of Asian descent (and "Asian" was defined pretty broadly in some cases, Bellingham, WA's "sundown town" law targeting Asians also included people from the Indian subcontinent and the East Indies broadly), and in some cases even children of Asian immigrants were denied citizenship.  (Needless to say, this actually formed a lot of the legal basis for rounding up Japanese-Americans in internment camps during World War II; legally, they were considered "enemy aliens" who were never eligible for US citizenship, and thus to be treated not unlike a "hostile Indian nation".  And yes, there was a lot of support from the more racist bits of the local white population--who weren't exactly friendly with Japanese-Americans even before World War II.

It pretty much took the Korean and Vietnam Wars for Asian-Americans to get full legal rights--it turns out that some major Cold War-fueled humanitarian crises (and refugee families including refugee kids) tended to speak rather louder (for once) than the usual "Yellow Menace" derp, and having a number of Korean and Vietnamese and Khmer and Lao and Hmong refugees rather helped open up the doors to actually allowing Asian-Americans to gain citizenship.

Temperament, intelligence and values. Over the years, I've noticed that people who share similarities in those traits tend to associate with each other.

Don't get me wrong, human races are as real as dog breeds. But, instead of general races ("white", "black", etc), the historic grouping mechanism was ethnicity which maps more closely to dog breed (see Belgian Malinois versus German Shepherd).

But in an ethnically and racially diverse society, the grouping mechanism then becomes temperament, intelligence and values.

ShawnDoc: shortymac: My best friend of 10+ years is black, apparently light-colored Black people are "house slaves" and look down upon the darker "field slaves".

I did notice when I visited her at a historical black college that the girls did tend to form into clique's based on how light their skin was, it was very weird.

Its pretty common in a lot of cultures, not just Italians or blacks.  In many Central and South American countries, and Asian countries, dark skin is looked upon badly, because historically those with dark complexions were dark because they had been working in the fields, while those with lighter skin were the upper class who spent most of their time inside.  Just because now skin color has more to do with genetics instead of your position in society, doesn't mean the old prejudices have gone away.

In many Asian countries there's a huge business in "skin whiteners", and you can't turn on the TV for long without seeing a commercial for them or walk into a pharmacy without seeing entire rows dedicated to them.  Also, most TV newscasters and other positions are usually given to those with very white skin, especially amongst women.

Regarding the Asian preference for white skin, that's weird, but no weirder than people who darken their skin color through sun exposure, pills, creams, and lamps.

dazed420: You Are All Sheep: J. Frank Parnell: There is really just one race: the human one.

Lies.  A dalmation and a pitbull are both dogs, but significantly different.  Every 'race' of human is slightly different (on the whole) from the other in one way or another.


Dogs belong to the same species grouping just as humans belong to the same species grouping.  By being part of hte same species there can be different character traits but at the end of the day they are still canines or humans are still humans.  The use of race is a way of grouping people into sections based on physical traits but at the end of the day there is only one human race.   Race has no taxonomic significance: all living humans belong to the same species, Homo sapiens and subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.The sooner we get ouf of this race issue the better and accept the fact that we are all humans and that we just have different physical traits which helps to add to diversity.


Fail. No, there is only one human species (currently) but there are multiple races. And race does have taxonomic significance. A good example in taxonomy is found in birds; here the taxonomy clearly delineates races within species based on a combination of physical features and regional distribution (sound familiar?). Just because you do not like the concept of race for humans does not mean that they do not exist. Your other option is to remove the concept of race from all taxonomy but you damn well better apply it to all animals not just humans. But first you have to stop muddling up your terms.

Ahahah you'd probably be creeped out by how pale I am,I do go outside and stuff but I've never been able to tan. I just burn or get blisters.


I'm the same way.

Despite my Dad being black Irish, I did not inherit the ability to tan at all. I go straight to red.
