    I often forget skin color if I get to know a person, like one of my best friends who is Indian (from india), and friends of varying race I've had over the years.

    So I was thinking after the Nader thread, one really cool thing about talking to people over the net is the lack of racial prejudice, a preconceived idea of a person doesn't exist before you start talking to them and getting to know them and you can end up liking or disliking a person based mostly on their personality. I wonder how many of these "Hobby" type boards like ours have members of many different races, and we don't know, and it's never an issue as it *may* be in a more face-to-face club.


    So this is an entirely out-of-curiousity poll. I would rather people didn't reply saying "I'm White" or "I'm black", but feel free to comment any way you see fit. I can't stop you from saying anything, but hopefully you'd respect the reality that there are people in the world who judge others based on uncontrollable things like skin color or heritage.


    I'm making a guess of the results, I just want to see if I'm far off or not...

    I would actually be a mix of the Alpine and Nordic sub groupings within the White race . If you wanted technicality .

    But reality is I am just an American boy from the midwest who ended up out west . Own a home , and work . I will reitre some day and fish , then hopefully die in my sleep before I can't drive anymore .

    All though my skin is very light in pigment I do not really pay that much attention to skin color. Which I am sad to say is not the way as was raised as a child :( . Maybe that is why I have the outlook I do now. I treat everyone as an equal until they prove otherwise.

    It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to opens ones mouth and remove all doubt.

    Kids are funny about skin color, too. They notice different colors than their own skin color and probably many of the people they've been surrounded with early in their life experience, but they don't care.

    My daughter was telling us about her friends from school when she first started. She was talking about one kid and threw in "He's brown". I thought it was funny because it was such an innocent and meaningless observation.


    Also, it's funny to note how New York city is one of the most racially divided cities on earth, and yet it's 95% liberal. :doah:

    See, that's where you're wrong. "Asshat episodes" don't impress me, and I don't consider them "fun".

    I trust you're picking up what I'm laying down.......:deal:
