"livelyup, do people who classify themselves as 'white' have problems withe non'white' others that classify 'whites' as depigmented, albino or leukederm."
You know that i cant answer for people... but if you mean me, no. I dont have a problem with anyone. Or even any idea, really. I will talk and resaon about some ideas moer than others, but at the end of the day it would be a little foolish to let it get to the point of being a 'problem'. You know that i dont think that the idea that white people were some cast out albino tribe is very plausible. I have talked lots (too much really) about the reason i think that i am a kind of speckled white/ pink/ brown colour.
Which is all a long winded way of saying, im not really sure where you are going with this one.
Here is the thing. I actually really enjoy the kind of poetic style that you have, im kind of envious actually, but you dont have to beat about the bush. I promise i wont get angry or upset. If you want to say something just say it. I'm pretty sure i will cope. Might even be good for me.

devilish.....ly...(moist like devils food)
Why is everything so either - or? Couldnt I have been aggreived at both? Actually once again no, this is no problem for me. I think that cunning would have been a better choice of words than smart though. Provokes very apt images of rats and the like.
White folks, smart? Ill put it this way, im prepared to accept that an excess of melanin may make black people smarter and faster. But you have your work cut out trying to convince me that having LESS melanin makes you smarter somehow.
love and life
