the one drop rule is so stupid! i was reading an article on halle berry saying her daughter is black because of the one drop rule. this is stupid because halle is half black, the father is white, so the child has more white than black, but this makes her black anyway? ridiculous! and halle calls herself black in the article. i don't believe in this rule. nobody knows if they have "one drop" or not! go far enough down the line and you probably have every color there is in your family tree. you may have to go waaay back, but come on! nobody really knows what color they truly are, and i think it's rather annoying myself not to know what color somebody is. sometimes you can't even tell because people have such a hodge podge about them.

I agree, everyone should just be judged on behavior. You either act like a civilized human being, or you act black.

We ALL came from Adam & Eve, who were most likely very dark skinned if the biblical accounts of where they came from are accurate. our skin color changed over the thousands of years because of geographical and environmental factors. We all were cut from the same cloth boys and girls. ;)

By that rule, only black people who have been born in Africa are black.

US wannabe roots toots are not black. Don't confuse noble Africans with your watered down bullcrap.

Where people are concerned, I believe in the superiority of one race. The Human race.

This is what I was told... If you have ANY race other than White/Caucasian, you are the other race. White/Caucasian is kinda like the "base", for lack of a better term. When it's mixed with others, you get the other races. Not sure if this is right or not, but it made sense to me at the time.

All domesticated dogs are decendants of wolves, much like all extant "races" of humans are decendants of homo sapiens (who were originally dark skinned Africans). My ? is why are we so hung up on what "breed" sum1 is? The aesthetical characteristics of each so called race are no more than adaptations by nature or God (which ever you believes blesses & judges) that have allowed the human race to survive our diverse planet. The real dividing factors among us are culture & choice, what we believe to be "right & wrong" & how we choose to treat others.
