Africans have European ancestry? Most black Americans have considerable European ancestry. http://www.theroot.com/articles/history/2013/02/how_mixed_are_african_americans/ Hence, it has nothing to do with some specific ratio of genetic percentage, whether you're "half" this or "half&...

I think he's a simply butthurt the almighty British Empire that conquered 1/4 of Earth was clearly better than his joke of a country being another irrelevant nation whose greatest achievement ever was curry. 1) His country is Britain. He was born and raised in Britain. 2) Assuming you mean his pare...

What exactly are the barriers that would be symbolically broken? A Briton from a non-white/immigrant background (almost half of London's population) on London's most essential service board, a service that anyone who doesn't own or regularly use a car requires day to day? Is it really appropriate t...

I'm not a Christian, I was raised Shi'a Muslim and currently consider myself irreligious, but I love Theocracy. They're an amazingly talented power metal band.

Obama isn't black, he's mixed race. It's beyond insulting to call a person who's half white "black". He refers to himself as black. Most White Americans consider him functionally black because of his skin tone and facial features. These are simply social categories. For example, most Blac...

At which point do you believe they "merge," if not demarcate. That's my point. I don't believe there is a single clear point of merger. If you were to walk from Scandinavia to South Africa, you'd see a gradual darkening as you head down Germany into Central Europe, further as you head dow...

Their appearance is the result of genes, which also show their lineage. Sudanese Arabs would largely be considered black in the US, if President Omar al-Bashir is anything to go by. But where are their "white genes" or "black genes"? They have genes primarily from their area of ...

The use of the concept of "representation" is ambiguous in this thread. In the context of the original post, I considered "unrepresented" to mean that people in certain neighborhoods had no one representing their political interests . But it seems that one or two people in this ...

I really wish people would stop lumping the T in with lesbians, and the B and G as well. "LGBT rights" is kind a meaningless term given that the mainstream trans agenda involves special rights that do not even apply to the rest of us.

In what way, shape, or form?

Obama isn't black America's color line is based pretty explicitly on skin tone. Raised by his white mother or no, as far as said color line is concerned and as far as the symbolic importance of his victory goes, he's black. Whether he's "culturally black" is a different story, since he di...

Actually, this seems like a very good pick to me. Foreign policy has long been Joe Biden's area of focus, and he's been a leading voice for restraint and diplomacy within the Obama administration. He's a solid counterbalance to some of Clinton's other advisers' (Powers, Nuland) hawkish tendencies, a...

Well you being surprised isn't evidence. Please give some examples. First, there was his controversial immigration walkback a few months ago, which he immediately reversed back to his original position after getting threats: http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-08-25/trump-continues-slow-drip-s...

What proof do you have of Trump's connection with Russia apart from Hilary repeating it at each debate and the media pouring out her tripe? Pro-regime Russian banks have financed a number of his projects, going back to a planned resort in Russia several years ago. Ones they co-funded include Trump ...

Sure, Trump is hideous, but at least he believes what he says. Considering he tried to backtrack on even a set of views he's otherwise been consistent on, his immigration ones, before he started getting death threats from rednecks voting for him based on his "hardline anti-amnesty" positi...

We cannot allow a candidate into office under criminal investigation, it is a threat to democracy and rule of law. Then considering the Trump Foundation case has enough evidence to go to trial in New York, we can allow neither Clinton nor Trump. Much as I dislike both candidates, that's not going t...

Both can be true; it depends on both the person and the kind of maturity we're talking about. As kids, we often have interests that are mature for our age. We also tend to be more quiet and responsible in comparison to other kids our age, I think. But as we get older, we sometimes still enjoy the t...
