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.
kid_icarus: How will we sort our porn in the future?
Meh, they'll still find a way to alienate somebody for being different.
Silly_Sot: in Tex-asshole, it's still done. Maybe not on any "official" forms, but that's the genera
FLMountainMan: varmitydog: Of course, down here in Redneckistan, they are all colored.Black= coloredOriental= coloredHispanic= coloredArab= coloredAny child of any of these= colored simple life can be?No. Not even Wewa still does that.
Badafuco: Eventually humans will just be a grayish/brownish color.
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.
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.
Facetious_Speciest: atomicmaskSo its cool that the white race is going extinct to you people?I'm not going to say that there aren't people who cheer such a notion, I just don't understand how you get to "the white race is going extinct" from "some people have children with individuals of other races."
BafflerMeal: Arkanaut: Is there still one box for all of Asia, home to half of humanity?Badafuco: Eventually humans will just be a grayish/brownish color.GENETICS DOES NOT WORK THAT WAYWell technically, the more interbreeding of 'races' that occurs, recessive genes that have been allowed to flourish in isolation will be stomped on. Blonde hair, Blue eyes, gingers, etc... will be come increasingly less common.This type of action is pretty commonly seen in countries where dogs roam free, are not fixed, and breed on their own. After a while they all end up being mud sized, brown, short hairs with a slightly curly tail.
ModernLuddite: I have been considered Latino, Native, white, and even black on occassion.I'm a standard mutt breed North American - Irish, Choctaw, French, a pinch of Bulgarian, and God only knows what else - and I apparently I look like every racial group depending upon the light conditions.Meanwhile, my wife is pure blooded Polish and random people on the street identify her as Polish and speak to her in Polish. It's weird to me.
abhorrent1: Why not just make multiracial a choice?
This text is now purple: anfrind: Beyond that, it gets really messy. For example, polar bears and grizzly bears are two related but distinct species (far more different than dogs and wolves), and yet not only than they interbreed, but their hybrid offspring can also interbreed.I thought the whole speciation argument between dogs and wolves was a political creation not supported by genetics?I'm reminded of just how far outside the species one can get when hybridizing plants. The citrus family is almost entirely true-breeding hybrids.
pkellmey: I always check human or African descent, because after all, aren't we all.
ha-ha-guy: clkeagle: That's great. In only seven or eight more generations, we'll finally realize that the "race" block on a form is utterly meaningless.What a stupid way to view the world.My theory is, in about 10 generations, white Americans will mean one of two things:1. Fresh off the boat from Europe2. Some kind of weird trailer trash from a dirt poor area with latent Aryan Nation-esque feelings.3. Some really farked up New England blue bloods who are interbreeding like 18th century European nobility and producing turtle boy/things with webbed hands.It's odd to think how right now white is the best skin color you could have in terms of social status, but soon enough all the Euro-Asian mixes will be biatching about whitey coming up from his ghetto to steal their stuff. All the successful white folk from the middle and upper class will have likely chalked up at least one interracial marriage by that time.
Fano: FreakinB: I'm white and my girlfriend/future fiancé is Indian, so I've actually wondered how any kids we'd have would answer that question./My parents married outside of their religion so I'd just be taking things to the next level//Mom's background is Italian Catholic, Dad's is Eastern European JewishIn the same boat, perhaps we should ask makemorehinjews his opinion.
clkeagle: That's great. In only seven or eight more generations, we'll finally realize that the "race" block on a form is utterly meaningless.What a stupid way to view the world.
lymond01: Notabunny: This has always confused me. By 'race' we mean skin color, right? Why not just say "skin color"? I self-identify as Light Peach.I think people want skin color to identify culture, not race, which is really the problem.
mod3072: clkeagle: That's great. In only seven or eight more generations, we'll finally realize that the "race" block on a form is utterly meaningless.What a stupid way to view the world.Except that in many cases it is not meaningless. Take medical forms, for example. Different races People with certain inheritable genetic markers have different susceptibilities to different ailments and may require different treatments. It's not racism, it's a fact of genetics. I can see where it can be meaningless for some things, but that doesn't make it meaningless for everything.
Silly_Sot: My wife gets particularly nasty at me over this issue. I am Asian and "White" ancestry. Whenever I check this or "mixed race" on the form, my wife is offended. She demands that I only check "White". She's been living in Tex-asshole for over a decade. I think the state rubbed off on her far more than she's willing to admit.
Prince George: PapaChester: Suck it Repubs./you are not a real modern day Repub unless you support conceptual purity.Awww... That's so cute. Little Billy is learning to troll. Keep at it and some day you'll be as good as the average Farker.
jshine: So just make up a new catch-all for mixed ethnicity - like Caucasian already represents mixed European ancestry. My ancestors are from all over Europe (not including the Caucuses however).
OminousAnonymous: Maybe someone can explain... aren't we all the same race? Are we not all homo sapien?
varmitydog: Oriental= colored
devilEther: What most of you seem to be taking lightly is no less than the genocide of the Caucasoid race.
You Are All Sheep: 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.
YoOjo: What's it called when an orange Kurdish attention whore with sixteen buttocks worth of buttocks mates with a confused looking retarded Somali pirate lookalike?
LL316: Silly_Sot: in Tex-asshole, it's still done. Maybe not on any "official" forms, but that's the generaIt's nice that you're so comfortable looking down on an entire group of people.
browneye: I remember when Tiger Woods exploded on the golfing world and listening to a sports radio show talking about Tiger when one of the them said he thought Tiger Woods was "taking advantage" of his African American heritage. His colleague asked him what he meant by that and the idiot would say was "I don't know.....I just think he's taking advantage of it."To this day, I have no idea what the fark he meant.
FLMountainMan: simplicimus: Amongst my in-laws I have two black/white grandchildren. three Puerto Rices/white nieces/nephews, 1 Mexican/white nephew. Not really shocked by the news.CSB - My best friend is 3/8 Chinese, 5/8 white. His twin married a half-Phillipino, half-Mexican woman and had three kids, who are 5/16 white, 3/16 Chinese, 1/4 Mexican, and 1/4 Phillipino (which itself a mix of Spanish and Asian). The oldest kid is about to marry a Sephardic Jew Colombian, so good luck tracking all that nonsense.
