Skin color is not a good way to define race.

Racial definitions are cultural constructs. The genetic variation is caused by divergent evolution, where populations separate for a time without outside genetic influence.
If there was a way to differentiate high caste from low caste, there would be no high caste people or low caste people. They would all have influence from both in some ratio.
Ask all the questions you want, but I'm a college drop out. I can only do so much.
I'm sorry, that's not what I've been taught, I think this is a very complex issue and needs a lot of thought, but I don't like thinking, so I give up!:-)

No kidding, right? They totally should stop cleaning your hotels and laboring on your farms!
Those murdering bastards!
The major problem for us is that they clean the hotels & work on the farms, earn pay, pay no taxes & collect welfare, food stamps & free medical care & public schooling.

Ya, they're a real help!

Yes, Clementine, you MUST make a YouTube video. You'll be great. Do you have a good voice?

I did a film program last week. But I can't put it on YouTube, it's not my property.

I haven't seen it yet, and I'm not sure I want to, what if I was terrible?

How about this, science does not support racism in any way.

We can agree to that, right?

okay let's compare apples to apples and not oranges. In other words lets look at the gun related deaths in developed countries and compare them.

You don't far much more apples to apples than a "per capita" comparison.

<quoted text> I'm saying we are predators we use anything and everything to kill with. The gun is not the problem the problem is us.
But yes guns are used to kill people , especially police with blue glaziers and hydra shock ammunition. But the primary use of a gun resides in the mind of it's owner.
Do I think they were intentionally designed to kill , yes but whether that is was for food or other people is not known.
Possibly and especially because humans have rarely gone more than 10 seconds in the last 5,000 years without a war somewhere.
That's true, the primary issue is our predatory nature, which is why I think it's a bad idea to allow ourselves easy and nearly unregulated access to guns. Even if we somehow got rid of every single gun on the planet, people would still find ways to kill each other; however, it would be much more difficult for a lone madman to quickly and easily plan and execute a mass murder. It would be impractical and inadvisable to try *total* gun control, but I don't think it's unreasonable to demand tighter regulations. A ban on assault rifles, extended clips and the like, a more thorough screening process of potential buyers, as well as the implementation of a strict licensing program are all things that I think are completely reasonable when we are dealing with tools whose primary purpose is killing.

<quoted text>An embryo, "Fetus", also spelled foetus [<Latin, a bringing forth, progeny] is just a euphemism for baby. A human baby is called a fetus from the end of the second month until birth. Babies do some very "alive" things during those months; kicking, hiccuping, sucking thumbs, crying {it is rare] and even irritability. Every cell, beginning at conception, experiences cellular "memory". You don't need a brain to be alive.
Get real, psycho.
There is no such thing as "cellular memory." That is pseudoscience.

You're right, drug offenses: UK 183,419 per 100,000 people / US 560.1 per 100,000 people.
The UK has 325 times the drug offenses than the US....

I believe God is real. I always believed he was, but last spring when my daughter was thrown from a vehicle traveling at 60 miles an hour, crashing to the concrete, her face and scalp ripped off from her cheek across her nose, eye, forehead, and down the back of her head and left dangling beside her head, multiple fractures in her spine, face bones shattered, arms, back and legs, left open with no skin, just raw tissue, died twice - once in helicopter, once in first hospital who said they could not help her, hopeless case, and flown as a last ditch effort to another hospital where doctors looked at her and said it looked like a watermelon smashed on the floor. Surgeons meticulously worked for hours, despite having pieces of bone and tissue to try and build her a head and felt hopeless, though they felt the spirit to continue to try. They got through surgery. We were given no hope. Told to pray. Pray we did. She lived that first day surrounded by family and members of her church family. It was a horrific site to see my baby like that, breathing with a machine, blood and meds being poured into her, yet there was a wonderful feeling of love and we knew, we knew God was in that room with us. The warmth and the calm was unreal. Doctors said if she woke up from her coma, it would be a miracle. What kind of life she would have, that would be another story. No hope, no promises, yet, we felt God's presence in that room and knew everything would be good. God was in control. We prayed and waited, never wavering in our hearts that we would lose her. God brought her through that accident, and the surgery and we felt his love surrounding us as we waited in that room. It was like we were engulfed in his spirit and our faith became so strong. God never left her. God woke her up days later. She opened her swollen eye and looked up at her dad, turned and looked at her sister and said "what are you guys doing here?" She was returned to us 100%. The horrendous injuries to her head, fractures, hemorhages, hematoma, beyond a doctors ability to repair and God gave her back whole. Did it prove God is real. ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT A DOUBT. He is real and he loves you. He is waiting for you to talk to him and reach out for him. He will walk with you if you invite him. He performs miracles every day. People just don't pay attention. My daughter has a new name. It is Miracle. Every doctor and every nurse involved in her care use this name. As the surgeons explained, this was God's doing. There was no way they could save her from her devastating injuries. Her four children needed her still Their mommy was returned and she shares her faith and love of Jesus with them every day. God is real. God is love and God loves you. It is true.
I'm happy your daughter made it through that, I'm sure that was a terrible experience. However, you need to be grateful to the doctors, not god. The men and women who worked tirelessly to save your daughter's life are the real heroes, not some invisible being in the sky. Stories like this always beg the question - if god has the power to save people from horrific accidents like this one, why doesn't he just prevent them in the first place, and save the victim and his/her family a lot of heartache?
