<quoted text>Perhaps "common" sense shouldn't be considered to be so "common" these days. I could understand if you were stating YOUR OPINION - but no, you had to pass it off as, "It's been said"...- that doesn't qualify as fact just because you may travel in uneducated circles...please take the time to get educated before blatantly spewing things from your mouth and passing them off as "fact"
Are you jealous because more black men have mixed babies than black women? And yes a*hole all it takes is common sense to know that most kids from black and white unions have white moms and black dads. And how did I figure this? Because bm and ww are three times more likely to date and marry than white men and black women.

Yeah multiracial population is growing somehow nowadays as compared to old days. But this rate is not enough.

<quoted text>Thank you...you posts make a lot of "common" sense. There weren't NEARLY as many bm/ww relationships or babies being born...A lot of change has only taking place over the past 40 years or so - increasing greatly over the past 20 years...

Where in the bible does God say a child with two nationalities is a mongrel? I was under the impression we are created in the likeness and image of God! If that statement is true then what color is God? We all come from dirt and there are several different colors of dirt and in the end our bodies turn back to dirt or dust if you prefer so how would God have an issue with skin tone? I am so worried now am I going to hell because my grandmother was indian and grandfather German and my other grandmother was asian and grandfather was British my mother who looks white with slanty eyes and my father dark skinned with high cheek bones. Omg I am mutliracial! My kids are really bad their father looks African American but his grandparents are French and African and Indian and African and both his parents look african but truly he is a multiple himself. Wow what are we? Oh yes thats right we are people, who chose to love each other for our charactoristics and personalities, the things that make us who we are.

Jealous???...lol for what? You have absolutely NO idea of what you're talking about. On a personal note, I could care less. In addition, I'm kinda weary in posting to you due to a lack of your ability to comprehend the truth using facts instead of what you "deem" to be common sense. None-the-less,

What the heck does marriage have to do with anything?

Oh but it does doesn't it??? My bad.

There are no babies born out of wedlock...

There was no law and subsequent penalty that contributed to the conditioning of the marriage "mindset" of both blacks and whites to one another...

And a vile history (of the US) has died in the minds of all who call themselves American...

__________

Sounds kind of insidious doesn't it? Yet all these factors need to be taken into consideration. It has ONLY been little over 40 years since Dr. King was assassinated right?

So yes, change has and is slowly taking place with time and with each coming generation, but nowhere near what you are implying.

"Section 3....and it shall not be lawful for any freedman, free negro or mulatto to intermarry with any white person; nor for any person to intermarry with any freedman, free negro or mulatto; and any person who shall so intermarry shall be deemed guilty of felony, and on conviction thereof shall be confined in the State penitentiary for life; and those shall be deemed freedmen, free negroes and mulattoes who are of pure negro blood, and those descended from a negro to the third generation, inclusive, though one ancestor in each generation may have been a white person."

Yeah, to say black men and white women were always more common than black women and white men is pretty absurd, especially 300-100 years ago...even DNA samples verify that wm/bw were more common since so many black american men have Y chromosomes that originate in Europe but VERY few black americans have european mitochondriol DNA( and if vast numbers of biracials were born to white women this wouldn't be the case)...and many white americans who have black ancestry have African mitochondriol DNA suggesting a recent black ancestor along their maternal lineage...which again proves so
Again, thank you. However most change has only taken place over the past 30 years or so.

Many in here still live in the past, in the days of anti-miscegenation laws, Jim Crow, slavery, etc.

It's 2011. Get with the program.

There are ALWAYS two-sides to a coin. In fact, it's impossible to have one-side without the other.

On one side, there are those who choose to make a connection from past to present, and on the other, those who choose to ignore that a connection exist.

BTW, "Living in" and making relative reference to the past are totally different things...

Really though, it amazes me that they even teach such things as the "history" of the US...The days of fighting to become a free nation, or the forefathers who "formed" this great nation - why is that? Is there NOT a connection to who and where we TODAY?

Couldn't be that they mention and teach such things because they are choosing to live in their past...

Hussein Obama is alowing any and all minorities to come into this country - no questions asked.

Anyone from Europe will be placed under a microscope before being considered to live here.
For those who are permitted, it costs them a hefty sum.

In fact, Hussein is flying and shipping in, at tax payers' expense, thousands of muslims from the East and from Africa every month to boost the criminal population in the U.S.
Maybe those things are true but when are people going to see that as human beings there is no majority or minority.

“When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of man He set the boundaries of the peoples…”(Deut. 32:8).

The origin of races comes from God’s desire to separate the people at the Tower of Babel.

Acts 17:26:“He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.”

only very few people on this planet that knows the

eventually those that are hiding the mysteries and

because they will hve no choice.
OMG!! you should send this to Hollywood. I what make for a great weekly drama. I'm sick of reality tv!

I have no idea if there is anything truth to what that poster said about Obama shipping in africans and arab criminals. I betting it is total hogwash. However, lets say for example it is true. Does it matter if they are humans? Why would you want to allow that type of people into our country? We've got enough criminals of own without importing more.
