The Irish turning St. Patrick's day as a welcoming celebration for everyone are an example of getting it right.


We already have left Earth. About fifty years ago, actually.

As a Catholic, I take offense at the appropriation of the feast of Saint Patrick. The epitome of getting it wrong.


From what I understand, they now have three broad classifications of race: negroid, mongoloid, and caucasoid, based on skull shape. People from India up Iceland are caucasoid, Tibet going eas to Tiajuana are mongoloid, and sub-saharan is caucasoid.


i think you accidentally put caucasoid twice here, i'm assuming the sub-saharan one is supposed to be negroid?

Am I the only one amused that Lavender's association of race to continent makes Russians Asian?:>


depends on where is Russia said Russian comes from lol. Russia is friggan massive and honestly the distinction between where Europe ends and asia begins isn't super clear, or where the middle east starts for that matter its all pretty arbitrary

If white isn't a race, then black isn't a race.

I'm not sure but the one on the left looks like she's going to kill herself, in which case this won't be cause for debate long.

It seems strange how easily people forget that irish, Celtic, French, Swedish, italian , and Spanish are different heritages.


Ethnicity is far more nuanced than "race" which is something I think is outdated and should be done away with.

Considering all the race-baited forum topics I have seen you personally create, I find it hard to believe I just read this post next to your handle.

Lets turn this question on its head shall we?

If certain people say white shouldn't count as a race and white pride isn't allowed then why do these same types of people say white privilege is a thing? Who are they targeting exactly if the first two statements are true?

Whew! (jogs in place, towels off)

Here, have a Gatorade--Must be worn out, after trying so hard!


It's kind of depressing to realize that so little effort went this question and yet it's so popular. Make sure it's a G2. The sugar will make me fat.
