A hybrid? What exactly are you referring to......I'm sure you realize in the 21st century neither black nor whites and all the shades of skin colour in between are "purebreds" of anything but an intermix of ancestry dating back thousand of years. It is particularly amusing this is a topic of discussion in the US considering ALL your ancestors flocked from somewhere else after the "New World" was discovered by CC in 1492. LOL

I have no intention of sifting through 4000 posts.

My question was.....

If racism is still so rampant in the United States as some of you posters would like to portray......how did Barack Obama "who could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago" come to be elected President of the United States, not just once but twice?

In your opinion, is racism rampant in the US or not?

If you believe it is not, why waste your time engaging with obvious trolls who attempt to represent public opinion, when the skin colour of your own President proves how foolish they are?

They are not called aboriginals. That is your country's term. They are American Indians -- this is what they call themselves & that is what our government calls them.

I'm not black. Your agenda of promoting racism on behalf of blacks today is almost comical given only yesterday the preverbial line pertained to the large percentage of "black-on-black" crime.

Maybe you should think about holding off at least a week or so....too much too soon!

Why would you think I'm arguing what the word means? All I said was the Indians of our country do NOT call themselves aboriginals. Nor does our government or anyone else in the US call them aboriginals.

A huge similarity as to how Canadians treat the Aboriginals and how Australia treats the Aboriginese.

SHAMEFUL !!

'The Massacre of the Innocents

When the aborigines realised that the white men were not the spirits of their dead ancestors and that the settlers were taking more and more of their land and destroying the trees and wild life they began to fight back.

The aborigines killed a number of the settlers and even wounded Captain Phillip in an attack. The settlers reacted by slaughtering and poisoning the aborigines and systematically destroying the land and wild animals they lived on.'

Bullst, Cervino was part of trio attempting to break into the guy's car on the guy's property and there were witnesses.

Was the shooter arrested and booked?

Zimmerman was sent along home with his bride and the federal air marshal who had waited patiently in the waiting room while George was being interviewed by the nice lady who didn't even know where The Retreat was. And before anyone had a clue who the the dead guy was.

ROT ROH! Guess some Canadians fail to practice that which they preach -Some Canadians shoul first learn to remove the weed by the root to clean up their own back yard before buting their snouts into U.S. affairs.

Snips..

'When guests from around the world were invited to the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s political party this year, Canada was conspicuous by its absence.

Despite often boasting of its historic support for the anti-apartheid struggle, Canada’s diplomats didn’t show up at the centenary celebrations for the ruling African National Congress – the biggest event on South Africa’s political calendar so far this year.'

“I was perplexed by not seeing the Canadians at the anniversary,” said Oscar van Heerden, a former ANC official who is now a political analyst.“The invitation was simply not honoured. The ANC were a bit dumbfounded. When I looked across the VIP rooms, it was quite striking that Canada’s representatives were not there.”

Canadian officials say their official invitation to the January event arrived at the last minute, due to ANC organizational disarray, and they could not spare any diplomats because of a visiting trade delegation. But many other Western countries had the same delay in their invitations and still managed to attend.

How can a political party celebrating a 100th anniversary be defined by race, considering in 1994 Nelson Mandela was the first black South African to hold the office of President?

Perhaps you might flip open a history book and tell us where these "Canadians" came from, what was their purpose and under who's orders did they slaughter many of the original aboriginal people?

Meanwhile,I'm still waiting to learn who are the NON-hybrids, living in the United States in the 21 century.
