To all you out there calling me racist, I think you did not read my comment well or even get its context.

To be racist you have to believe that man is divided into racial groups. I don't as my comment clearly shows.
More so, you have to believe your "race" is the superiour of all the "races", I am African (Ugandan), we do not even think like that, it just does not occur to us.
Most importantly I was responding to;
"Posted by brerlou on 03.14.10 @ 10:05 AM"
who made some remark about "cross breeding" and this child being the resultant "hybrid" and went so far as to highlight himself/herself and Pres. Obama as such.
Which I thought was disingenuous.
People are people; gifted/ordinary, privileged/disadvantaged, hero/villain, all have dignity .
We all need to learn to celebrate everyone's achievements and remember to learn from our mistakes.

That makes for interesting reading.
Now consider this, geneticists have found that there is more genetic variance between two Africans (sub-sharan -i.e. countries without a Mediterranean coast) of the same tribe than between a European and an Asian/Oriental.
How does your "racist" iteration compute that?
