I don't think anyone can deny that their initial statement in the article really set the tone for the rest. I know it did for me.

No, no we're not. Big Grin And proud! Big Grin

You're not?!

What do I know anyway. I'm a frog. My own skin has green undertones.

I dunno, Argy. You're assuming that people interpret things the same as you do. I'm suggesting that they don't. I certainly didn't make the assumption that the use of the word "dark" meant "Black".

I don't think everybody in the world makes the same assumptions as an American from the South would. Sorry. :/

50 Shades of White.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Well, the first sentence does seem to be a set up for a "we are all immigrants" bit. The way they wrote 'also darker' after talking about the out of Africa ancient darkies seems like a bit of a sly attempt to obfuscate things a little. Although maybe that is just being overly cynical on my part.

And the wogs start at Calais.

Still makes a difference whether you're a first generation clam diver / carpet flyer immigrant or a 200th generation immigrant. I doubt this propaganda will fly.
