I think another poster made this comment to show the thinking and implications of your statement, "race mixing is a great tool to break down racism". It is kind of understandable that the two ideas got linked, although YOU DID NOT make the 5000-year statement."
Thank you for clarifying that it was not me who made this statement. I still maintain that the more mixed the world gets the less easy it will be to hate others wehn they are your own family. I have seen this on my local level and i therefore
postulate that it occurs on a larger level. does that statement equate some master plan that i personally have to bleach out the black afrikan race? That is how people try to make me sound. I have seen with my eyes racist grandparents change their rotted ways when they have mulatto grand kids, and therefore i concluded that mace mixing COULD BE a good tool to break down racism. (i never said it was a panacea that would eliminte racsim)(The response that statement got was that people said race mixing led to more problems and not less. I'm open to new ideas. i dont think i know it all and have all the answers. I realize that mulatto kids have a rough time when both races can treat them funny.
But i wont leave my assertion that people should be free to love marry and have kids with whom they love period. Plenty of same race couples
cheating on, beating, raping, mentally abusing thier partners and you would proabably assert that THEY'RE are better off together than a mixed race couple who cherished each other and treated each other with love caring and respect. and so we can agree to disagree on this with respect still. ras adam(no "S") simeon
Still your bad.
