An interesting Essay on Interracial dating. Its
pretty objective apparently.

SEX & RACE
Is Love Colorblind?

While interracial marriage is increasingly
accepted by whites,
a surprising number of Asian men and black women
are bitterly opposed.
Why?
 

JUST three decades ago, Thurgood Marshall was only
months away from appointment to the Supreme Court
when he suffered an indignity that today seems not
just outrageous but almost incomprehensible. He
and his wife had found their dream house in a
Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C., but could not
lawfully live together in that state: he was black
and she was Asian. Fortunately for the Marshalls,
in January 1967 the Supreme Court struck down the
anti-interracial-marriage laws in Virginia and 18
other states. And in 1967 these laws were not mere
leftover scraps from an extinct era. Two years
before, at the crest of the civil-rights
revolution, a Gallup poll found that 72 per cent
of Southern whites and 42 per cent of Northern
whites still wanted to ban interracial marriage.
Let's fast-forward to the present and another
black - Asian couple: retired Green Beret
Lieutenant Colonel Eldrick Woods Sr. and his
Thai-born wife, Kultida. They are not hounded by
the police -- just by journalists desperate to
write more adulatory articles about how well they
raised their son Tiger. The colossal popularity of
young Tiger Woods and the homage paid his parents
are remarkable evidence of white Americans' change
in attitude toward what they formerly denounced as
``miscegenation.'' In fact, Tiger's famously mixed
ancestry (besides being black and Thai, he's also
Chinese, white, and American Indian) is not merely
tolerated by golf fans. More than a few seem to
envision Tiger as a shining symbol of what America
could become in a post-racial age.

Interracial marriage is growing steadily. From
the 1960 to the 1990 Census, white - Asian married
couples increased almost tenfold, while black -
white couples quadrupled. The reasons are obvious:
greater integration and the decline of white
racism. More subtly, interracial marriages are
increasingly recognized as epitomizing what our
society values most in a marriage: the triumph of
true love over convenience and prudence.Nor is it
surprising that white - Asian marriages outnumber
black - white marriages: the social distance
between whites and Asians is now far smaller than
the distance between blacks and whites. What's
fascinating, however, is that in recent years a
startling number of nonwhites -- especially Asian
men and black women -- have become bitterly
opposed to intermarriage.

This is a painful topic to explore honestly, so
nobody does. Still, it's important because
interracial marriages are a leading indicator of
what life will be like in the even more diverse
and integrated twenty-first century.
Intermarriages show that integration can churn up
unexpected racial conflicts by spotlighting
enduring differences between the races.
For example, probably the most disastrous mistake
Marcia Clark made in prosecuting O. J. Simpson was
to complacently allow Johnny Cochran to pack the
jury with black women. As a feminist, Mrs. Clark
smugly assumed that all female jurors would
identify with Nicole Simpson. She ignored pretrial
research indicating that black women tended to see
poor Nicole as The Enemy, one of those beautiful
blondes who steal successful black men from their
black first wives, and deserve whatever they get.
The heart of the problem for Asian men and black
women is that intermarriage does not treat every
sex/race combination equally: on average, it has
offered black men and Asian women new
opportunities for finding mates among whites,
while exposing Asian men and black women to new
competition from whites. 

In the 1990 Census, 72 per cent of black - white
couples consisted of a black husband and a white
wife. In contrast, white - Asian pairs showed the
reverse: 72 per cent consisted of a white husband
and an Asian wife. 

Sexual relations outside of marriage are less
fettered by issues of family approval and
long-term practicality, and they appear to be even
more skewed. The 1992 Sex in America study of
3,432 people, as authoritative a work as any in a
field where reliable data are scarce, found that
ten times more single white women than single
white men reported that their most recent sex
partner was black.

Few whites comprehend the growing impact on
minorities of these interracial husband - wife
disparities. One reason is that the effect on
whites has been balanced. Although white women
hunting for husbands, for example, suffer more
competition from Asian women, they also enjoy
increased access to black men. Further, the weight
of numbers dilutes the effect on whites. 

In 1990, 1.46 million Asian women were married,
compared to only 1.26 million Asian men. This net
drain of 0.20 million white husbands into
marriages to Asian women is too small to be
noticed by the 75 million white women, except in
Los Angeles and a few other cities with large
Asian populations and high rates of intermarriage.
Yet, this 0.20 million shortage of Asian wives
leaves a high proportion of frustrated Asian
bachelors in its wake.

Black women's resentment of intermarriage is
now a staple of daytime talk shows, hit movies
like Waiting to Exhale, and magazine articles.
Black novelist Bebe Moore Campbell described her
and her tablemates' reactions upon seeing a black
actor enter a restaurant with a blonde: ``In
unison, we moaned, we groaned, we rolled our eyes
heavenward . . . Then we all shook our heads as we
lamented for the 10,000th time the perfidy of
black men, and cursed trespassing white women who
dared to 'take our men.''' Like most guys, though,
Asian men are reticent about admitting any
frustrations in the mating game. But anger over
intermarriage is visible on Internet on-line
discussion groups for young Asians. The men,
featuring an
even-greater-than-normal-for-the-Internet
concentration of cranky bachelors, accuse the
women of racism for dating white guys. For
example, ``This [dating] disparity is a
manifestation of a silent conspiracy by the racist
white society and self-hating Asian [nasty word
for ``women''] to effect the genocide of Asian
Americans.''

The women retort that the men are racist and
sexist for getting sore about it. All they can
agree upon is that Media Stereotypes and/or Low
Self-Esteem must somehow be at fault.
LET'S review other facts about intermarriage and
how they violate conventional sociological
theories.

1. You would normally expect more black women than
black men to marry whites because far more black
women are in daily contact with whites. First,
among blacks aged 20 - 39, there are about 10 per
cent more women than men alive. Another tenth of
the black men in these prime marrying years are
literally locked out of the marriage market by
being locked up in jail, and maybe twice that
number are on probation or parole. So, there may
be nearly 14 young black women for every 10 young
black men who are alive and unentangled with the
law. Further, black women are far more prevalent
than black men in universities (by 80 per cent in
grad schools), in corporate offices, and in other
places where members of the bourgeoisie, black or
white, meet their mates.

Despite these opportunities to meet white men, so
many middle-class black women have trouble landing
satisfactory husbands that they have made Terry
(Waiting to Exhale) McMillan, author of novels
specifically about and for them, into a
best-selling brand name. Probably the most popular
romance advice regularly offered to affluent black
women of a certain age is to find true love in the
brawny arms of a younger black man. Both Miss
McMillan's 1996 best-seller How Stella Got Her
Groove Back and the most celebrated of all books
by black women, Zora Neale Hurston's 1937 classic
Their Eyes Were Watching God, are romance novels
about well-to-do older women and somewhat
dangerous younger men. Of course, as Miss Hurston
herself later learned at age 49, when she
(briefly) married a 23-year-old gym coach, that
seldom works out in real life.

2. Much more practical-sounding advice would be:
Since there are so many unmarried Asian men and
black women, they should find solace for their
loneliness by marrying each other. Yet, when was
the last time you saw an Asian man and a black
woman together? Black-man/Asian-woman couples are
still quite unusual, but Asian-man/black-woman
pairings are incomparably more rare.

Similar patterns appear in other contexts:
3a. Within races: Black men tend to most ardently
pursue lighter-skinned, longer-haired black women
(e.g., Spike Lee's School Daze). Yet black women
today do not generally prefer fairer men.
3b. In other countries: In Britain, 40 per cent of
black men are married to or living with a white
woman, versus only 21 per cent of black women
married to or living with a white man.
3c. In art: Madame Butterfly, a
white-man/Asian-woman tragedy, has been packing
them in for a century, recently under the name
Miss Saigon. The greatest black-man/white-woman
story, Othello, has been an endless hit in both
Shakespeare's and Verdi's versions. (To update
Karl Marx's dictum: Theater always repeats itself,
first as tragedy, then as opera, and finally as
farce, as seen in that recent smash, O.J., The
Moor of Brentwood.) Maybe Shakespeare did know a
thing or two about humanity: America's leading
portrayer of Othello, James Earl Jones, has twice
fallen in love with and married the white actress
playing opposite him as Desdemona.

4. The civil-rights revolution left husband - wife
balances among interracial couples more unequal.
Back in 1960 white husbands were seen in 50 per
cent of black-white couples (versus only 28 per
cent in 1990), and in only 62 per cent of white -
Asian couples (versus 72 per cent). 

Why? Discrimination, against black men and
Asian women. In the Jim Crow South black men
wishing to date white women faced pressures
ranging from raised eyebrows to lynch mobs. In
contrast, the relatively high proportion of
Asian-man/white-woman couples in 1960 was a
holdover caused by anti-Asian immigration laws
that had prevented women, most notably Chinese
women, from joining the largely male pioneer
immigrants. As late as 1930 Chinese-Americans were
80 per cent male. So, the limited number of
Chinese men who found wives in the mid twentieth
century included a relatively high fraction
marrying white women. In other words, as legal and
social discrimination have lessened, natural
inequalities have asserted themselves.

5. Keeping black men and white women apart was the
main purpose of Jim Crow. Gunnar Myrdal's landmark
1944 study found that Southern whites generally
grasped that keeping blacks down also retarded
their own economic progress, but whites felt that
was the price they had to pay to make black men
less attractive to white women. To the extent that
white racism persists, it should limit the
proportion of black-man/white-woman couples.
SINCE these inequalities in interracial marriage
are so contrary to conventional expectations, what
causes them? Academia's and the mass media's
preferred reaction has been to ignore husband -
wife disproportions entirely. When the subject has
raised its ugly head, though, they've typically
tossed out arbitrary ideas to explain a single
piece of the puzzle, rather than address the
entire yin and yang of black - white and white -
Asian marriages. For example, a Japanese-American
poetry professor in Minnesota has written
extensively on his sexual troubles with white
women. He blames the internment of Japanese
Americans during World War II. Presumably, the
similarity of frustrations of Chinese-American men
is just a coincidence caused by, say, China losing
the Opium War. And the problems of Vietnamese men
stem from winning the Vietnam War, etc. But
piecemeal rationalizations are unappealing
compared to a theory which might explain all the
evidence.

The general pattern to be explained is: blacks
are more in demand as husbands than as wives, and
vice-versa for Asians. The question is, what
accounts for it?

The usual sociological explanations for who
marries whom (e.g., availability, class, and
social approval) never work simultaneously for
blacks and Asians. This isn't surprising because
these social-compatibility factors influence the
total number of black - white or white - Asian
marriages more than the husband - wife proportions
within intermarriages.

By emphasizing how society encourages us to
marry people like ourselves, sociologists miss
half the picture: by definition, heterosexual
attraction thrives on differences. Although Henry
Higgins and Colonel Pickering are so compatible
that they break into song about it (``Why Can't a
Woman Be More like a Man?''), Higgins falls in
love with Eliza Doolittle. Opposites attract. And
certain race/sex pairings seem to be more opposite
than others. The force driving these skewed
husband - wife proportions appears to be
differences in perceived sexual attractiveness. On
average, black men tend to appear slightly more
and Asian men slightly less masculine than white
men, while Asian women are typically seen as
slightly more and black women as slightly less
feminine than white women.

Obviously, these are gross generalizations
about the races. Nobody believes Michael Jackson
could beat up kung-fu star Jackie Chan or that
comedienne Margaret Cho is lovelier than Sports
Illustrated swimsuit covergirl Tyra Banks. But
life is a game of probabilities, not of abstract
Platonic essences.

So, what makes blacks more masculine-seeming and
Asians more feminine-seeming? Media stereotypes
are sometimes invoked. TV constantly shows black
men slam-dunking, while it seems the only way an
Asian man can get some coverage is to discover a
cure for AIDS. Yet try channel-surfing for
minority women. You'll see black women dancing,
singing, joking, and romancing. If, however, you
even see an Asian woman, she'll probably be
newscasting -- not the most alluring of roles.
Conventional wisdom sometimes cites social
conditioning as well. But while this is not
implausible for American-born blacks, who come
from a somewhat homogeneous culture, it's
insensitive to the diversity of cultures in which
Asians are raised. Contrast Koreans and Filipinos
and Cambodian refugees and fifth-generation
Japanese-Americans. It's not clear they have much
in common culturally other than that in the West
their women are more in demand as spouses than
their men.

One reasonable cultural explanation for the
sexual attractiveness of black men today is the
hypermasculinization of black life over the last
few decades. To cite a benign aspect of this
trend, if you've followed the Olympics on TV since
the 1960s you've seen sprinters' victory
celebrations evolve from genteel exercises in
restraint into orgies of fist-pumping,
trash-talking black machismo. This showy
masculinization of black behavior may be in part a
delayed reaction to the long campaign by Southern
white males to portray themselves as ``The Man''
and the black man as a ``boy.'' But let's not be
content to stop our analysis here. Why did Jim
Crow whites try so hard to demean black manhood?
As we've seen, the chief reason was to prevent
black men from impregnating white women.
So, did all racist whites a century ago make
keeping minorities away from their women their
highest priority? No. As noted earlier, the
anti-Asian immigration laws kept Asian women out,
forcing many Asian immigrant bachelors to look for
white women (with mixed success). While white men
were certainly not crazy about this side effect,
it seemed an acceptable tradeoff, since they
feared Asian immigrants more as economic than as
sexual competitors.

But why did whites historically dread the
masculine charms of blacks more than those of
Asians? Merely asking this question points out
that social conditioning is ultimately a
superficial explanation of the differences among
peoples. Yes, society socializes individuals, but
what socializes society?

There are only three fundamental causes for the
myriad ways groups differ. The first is
unsatisfying but no doubt important: random flukes
of history. The second, the favorite of Thomas
Sowell and Jared Diamond, is differences in
geography and climate. The third is human
biodiversity. Let's look at three physical
differences between the races. 1) Asian men tend
to be shorter than white and black men. Does this
matter in the mating game? One of America's
leading hands-on researchers into this question,
7'1", 280-pound basketball legend Wilt
Chamberlain, reports that in his ample experience
being tall and strong never hurt. Biological
anthropologists confirm this, finding that taller
tends to be better in the eyes of most women in
just about all cultures. Like most traits, height
is determined by the interaction of genetic and
social factors (e.g., nutrition). For example, the
L.A. Dodgers' flamethrowing pitcher Hideo Nomo is
listed as 6'2", an almost unheard-of height for
any Japanese man fifty years ago, owing to the
near-starvation diets of the era. While the height
gap between Japanese and whites narrowed
significantly after World War II, this trend has
slowed in recent years as well-fed Japanese began
bumping up against genetic limits. Furthermore, it
can be rather cold comfort to a 5'7" Asian who is
competing for dates with white and black guys
averaging 5'11" to hear, ``Your sons will grow up
on average a couple of inches taller than you,
assuming, of course, that you ever meet a girl and
have any kids.'' In contrast, consider a 5'1"
Asian coed. Although she'd be happy with a 5'7"
boyfriend if she were in an all-Asian school, at
UCLA she finds lots of boys temptingly much taller
than that, but few are Asian.

2. This general principle -- the more racial
integration there is, the more important become
physical differences among the races -- can also
be seen with regard to hair length. The ability to
grow long hair is a useful indicator of youth and
good health. (Ask anybody on chemotherapy.) Since
women do not go bald and can generally grow longer
hair than men, most cultures associate longer hair
with femininity. Although blacks' hair doesn't
grow as long as whites' or Asians' hair, that's
not a problem for black women in all-black
societies. After integration, though, hair often
becomes an intense concern for black women
competing with longer-haired women of other races.
While intellectuals in black-studies departments'
ebony towers denounce ``Eurocentric standards of
beauty,'' most black women respond more
pragmatically.

They one-up white women by buying straight from
the source of the longest hair: the Wall Street
Journal recently reported on the booming business
in furnishing African-American women with
``weaves'' and ``extensions'' harvested from the
follicularly gifted women of China.

3. Muscularity may most sharply differentiate the
races in terms of sexual attractiveness. Women
like men who are stronger than they; men like
women who are rounder and softer. The ending of
segregation in sports has made racial differences
in muscularity harder to ignore. Although the
men's 100-meter dash is among the world's most
widely contested events, in the last four Olympics
all 32 finalists have been blacks of West African
descent. 

Is muscularity quantifiable? CBS fitness expert
Covert Bailey finds that he needs to recommend
different goals -- in terms of percentage of body
fat -- to his clients of different races. The
standard goal for adult black men is 12 per cent
body fat, versus 18 per cent for Asian men. The
goals for women are 7 points higher than for

For interracial couples, their ``gender gaps'' in
body-fat goals correlate uncannily with their
husband - wife proportions in the 1990 Census. The
goal for black men (12 per cent) is 10 points
lower than the goal for white women (22 per cent),
while the goal for white men (15 per cent) is only
4 points lower than the goal for black women (19
per cent). This 10:4 ratio is almost identical to
the 72:28 ratio seen in the Census.

This correlates just as well for white - Asian
couples, too. Apparently, men want women who make
them feel more like men, and vice versa for women.
Understanding the impact of genetic racial
differences on American life is a necessity for
anybody who wants to understand our increasingly
complex society. For example, the sense of
betrayal felt by Asian men certainly makes sense.
After all, they tend to surpass the national
average in those long-term virtues -- industry,
self-restraint, law-abidingness -- that society
used to train young women to look for in a
husband. Yet, now that discrimination has finally
declined enough for Asian men to expect to reap
the rewards for fulfilling traditional American
standards of manliness, our culture has largely
lost interest in indoctrinating young women to
prize those qualities.

The frustrations of Asian men are a warning
sign. When, in the names of freedom and feminism,
young women listen less to the hard-earned wisdom
of older women about how to pick Mr. Right, they
listen even more to their hormones. This allows
cruder measures of a man's worth -- like the size
of his muscles -- to return to prominence. The
result is not a feminist utopia, but a society in
which genetically gifted guys can more easily get
away with acting like Mr. Wrong.

George Orwell noted, ``To see what is in front
of one's nose requires a constant struggle.'' We
can no longer afford to have our public policy
governed by fashionable philosophies which insists
upon ignoring the obvious. The realities of
interracial marriage, like those of professional
sports, show that diversity and integration turn
out in practice to be fatal to the reigning
assumption of racial uniformity. The courageous
individuals in interracial marriages have moved
farthest past old hostilities. Yet, they've
discovered not the featureless landscape of utter
equality that was predicted by progressive
pundits, but a landscape rich with fascinating
racial patterns. Intellectuals should stop
dreading the ever-increasing evidence of human
biodiversity and start delighting in it.

Colorblindness is gender-biased because that trait is carried on an allele of the X chromosome(males are XY, remember). The female is the carrier , but the male inherits it! There is only a 0.0167 percent chance of a female having colorblindness, in fact!! Source: Biology, Unity and Diversity of Life, Starr and Taggert 1998 edition.........Oh, I'm sorry Martin, I do wish you'd use the correct term....The aforementioned is colorblind..what you refer to is simply discrimination(not in a negative way, either). People are very similar to animals in that they pick the best person they think will look good with them and they have a reasonable chance of obtaining.It's kinda like natural selection.

Marin great post, as to the comment by turdboy 216 everythinh it says is racist,no matter how it comes out. But what else can you expect from a talking corpse of ignorance!

Since I live in the Bay area, I can't tell you how offten I've wondered about all the fine asian girls with these ugly white boys.I see some asian girls with black men,but not enough. The Philpanos seem to be more attracted to Africans, but the chinese girls generally appear to be drawn to anything white.There are so many fine asian women ,that a bro. can easily dismiss white girls out here.
I like alot of things about different asians and their cultures,I encourge my students to form relationships with all the asians they can. To offten what asians feel toward us is created by racist crackers,or a few bad experiences with some of the more deranged among us.

By HRH talks to his little Maria ( - 12.81.89.200) on Wednesday, March 7, 2001 - 01:14 pm:

Maria were you saying my post didn't make sense? I think Martins post made a lot of valid pts.
I plan to see the movie soon,good to know ya get out of the house Maria.Theres a big Asian film festival going on I'll be check out several of the films.
How's the weather up there?


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Wednesday, March 14, 2001 - 12:56 pm:

lol, I get out of the house a lot. In fact I just got back from NY. I live in Cali too. You see it yet? No-216 doesn't make sense-as usual. Not that I bother reading his posts a lot. :)


By White Vampire ( - 216.24.73.39) on Wednesday, March 14, 2001 - 03:40 pm:

B>i>t>c>h, what I'm saying is this: Martin is fond of using cliche'd terms instead of what he's really trying to say. Colorblindness is a stupid term to use for lack of discrimination(or something more appropriate), which is what he's referring to. Apparently, you people cannot understand anything that takes up more one line of space or any word more than two syllables.Maybe the Calif. sun has dried your tiny brains out!!God help us all!!


By Martin ( - 205.188.200.32) on Wednesday, March 14, 2001 - 08:14 pm:

hmmmm im curious.....what do you think I am really
trying to say White vampire? How does getting a
white woman mean natural selection?

whatever 216......You don't know where I'm from...You live in Texas? Louisiana? I know its somewhere where ignorance is taught from the day you are born.


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 03:49 am:

"A black man talks to a white man"

When I was born I was black, When I grew up I was black, When I'm sick I'm black, When I go in the sun I'm black, When I'm cold I'm black, When I die I'll be black. But you: When You're born you're pink, When you grow up you're white, When you're sick you're green, When you go in the sun you turn red, When your cold you turn blue, And when you die you turn purple. And you have the nerve to call me colored.


By White Vampire ( - 216.24.71.104) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 10:39 am:

So you're black, Maria? Well, first of all I don't think residents of Texas or Louisiana would appreciate your bulls>h>i>t assumption that ignorance is taught statewide (Both states have very large black populations, also). If ignorance is NOT being a liberal who does whatever is politically correct at the moment, then I'm guilty. However, you're a silly little b>i>t>ch who would wouldn't utter a peep if I were standing beside you --I'd f>u>c>k>i>n>g bet on it.You sound like a little 15-yr-old who's just trying to find herself. Well, slut, it's not here, I can tell you that!

This is to Martin: What I'm saying there is that the best looking (both in physical attractivenes and personality, if that in fact counts for s>h>i>t) people get linked with one another, while the not-so attractive end up with what's left (the uglies f>u>c>k the uglies). Over time, as with natural selection, people of all races actually begin to look better physically, because the dominant characteristics make their way into all the populations. As for black women , I must agree that here is a pressure to look more white (blue contacts, straight hair, etc,) than ever before. But look at Heidi Klum and you'll understand where the good genes went! What I'm saying is, we put our ancestors to shame in the looks department, and 10 centuries from now (the rate is accelerating) they'll put us to shame.


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 11:52 am:

lol, I'd spit on you actually. I would like to see you in person so I could watch your a.s.s. get beat. And I guarantee it would. idiot. You don't know what race I am-remember, you've never seen me. Oh wait, I'm on welfare, fat, and pregnant-you said that right? Or was it one of your little friends? And I know exactly who I am, and I know that people like you need to learn a lesson-and i know you will. You sound like a disgusting, 15 year old hick, with a big f-cking mouth who needs to shut the f-ck up.


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 02:00 pm:

Heidi Klum is boring.


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 02:02 pm:

Last post....white vampire...I agree with you that most of the black models, etc. have white features. Which is sad. except Naomi Campbell-who is far more beautiful than Tyra banks who has white features.


By Martin ( - 64.12.102.168) on Thursday, March 15, 2001 - 02:47 pm:

Lol Maria. Naomi Campbell is cute but I hear she
has a serious attitude problem. Gets kicked out of
fancy restaurants all the time lmao! And she kind
of looks Euro trashy to me some times. But fine no
doubt.

But if we are gonnatalk about fine dark chocolate
sisters who is that woman that starred with LL
Cool J in the movie "Out of Sync" NOW SHE FINE
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Friday, March 16, 2001 - 03:48 am:

I didn't see the movie Martin. Yeah I heard she has an attitude too. You notice she only dates Italian men? I thought that was funny. You think Lauryn Hill is pretty? I think she's gorgeous.


By White Vampire ( - 216.24.72.85) on Friday, March 16, 2001 - 11:41 am:

Maria, at the risk of sounding childish with the " back to -ya" mentality, I can only say that you wouldn't know me if I was standing in front of you, but if you made the mistake of spitting on me, God help you, girl. I make no distinction between men and women when it comes down to that.And if I so badly need to learn a lesson, why don't you teach me?


Martin: since you are usually polite to everyone on the site, I will refrain from using racial or inflammatory language when I talk to you from now on, or when I respond to your posts. Also, have you seen a black girl who appears in a lot of Gap ads in magazines as of late? Now she's hot! I don't know who she is , however? ---Regards, W.V.


By Maria ( - 24.130.192.181) on Friday, March 16, 2001 - 01:59 pm:

lol...you are f-cked up.

Colored Folk


Most of the so-called Europeans of today are not really Caucasians. They are Mulattos. The pure Caucasian stock are those people with blond hair and blue eyes.
If you were to snatch the hood off most K.K.K., you would not find blond haired, blue eyed Aryans (nobles). You would find dark haired, dark eyed mulattos, who think that they are white. Most skinheads do not have blond hair and blue eyes, nor did the German Chancellor Adolph Hitler.

Unbeknown to them, they are a part of the Negroid race. They are the coloreds.
