There is nothing to hate about that and it's great for people who have that or wish for that. But if others don't have that or don't particularly strive for that then it's also ok.

When someone writes 'interbreed us' it sounds a bit strange. Like you're talking about dogs.
FTFY

It worked so well in Australia and why cannot it work elsewhere.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

It has certainyl worked for our family- the interbreeding was not deliberate actually- but it really worked.

You mean how it used to work so well in Australia when the overwhelming majority were people of European descent?
Not only according to this source:

That article/website is specifically about Aboriginal people, not about the broader population.

Also if you have any knowledge about them you will understand that in their culture if you have the slightest Aboriginal descent, no matter how insignificant, then you are Aboriginal and nothing else. I know 'white' people who are actually Aboriginal.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

Some nice stereotyping going on here.

I'm purebred English, going back to at least the 18th century. If some of the stud farmers on this thread are to be believed, I should be waving a swastika flag around and calling for the return of slavery.



Sorry to have disappointed you.

I could say the same about African descent. If you also have a knowledge about African descent, in their culture no matter how insignificant the dominant colour of skin is, then you are still considered African or Coloured.

Just blend "x" dominant to "y" less dominant and the significant "x" will dominate. We could go on and on ... so what's the point?

It's not about that. It's all about finding a solution for everyone to play part of this planet without being segregated.

Something like that: http://peopleof.oureverydaylife.com/...tsis-9546.html

Tutsis are typically thought of as lighter skinned than those of Hutu decent.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

One does not guarantee or preclude the other ... but coming from a very mixed family can help being tolerant of others, yes.

However, sometimes people get a bit of a surprise, like those pure bred Cotswolds residents:

I find that simply having a brain is sufficient.

Never. Television documentaries are all - without exception - utter dross.

Mix them, interbreed them and give raise to new cultures and societies ...

What's strange about it? The only thing wrong in jacek's sentence is the "them".
I have always said that - and I said it in an other thread here too, months ago - what's to hate if everybodys family and family background is a mix from all over the world?
...and everybody sang Kumbayah. Only that is not what happens in the real world, here one bunch of monkeys in one tree hates the other monkeys in the other tree, even if the monkeys started off as one family. There is no mixing, no interbreeding, there will be new cultures and societies though and they will continue to hate the other monkeys. Nothing has changed since Thag and Ugg banged rocks.

What is really sad that such young boy 20-years of age ruins his life and career by following the wrong ideology.

In human' nature is striving to survive. We are not animals we are just one heck a lot of a dumb tissue of DNA chain trying to eliminate the weaker tissues of DNA chain, to be able to dominate biosphere. So sad.

I wonder who was in the cars he rammed. It was bad enough that he was prepared to drive at the protesters, but to think that those poor buggers in the other cars likely had nothing to do with the whole business at all and got whiplash or worse nevertheless.

Police said only that the crash is under investigation and have not commented on specific aspects of the crash.
